My Review:

Forget werewolves – the shifter searching for their True Mate in this brilliant novella is a Bear – and in the beginning he’s definitely like a bear with a sore head as he’s getting fed up of not finding her!  He’s Silas Vane, acting as Chef at a wilderness therapy camp in Alaska. Another person working there is recently qualified Lexi Durham but she’s there as a therapist and this young lady likes asking questions! Not only that but she’s a feisty female with a definite mind of her own – so much so that she suggests an arrangement that would tempt even the most docile of bears and Silas just can’t resist, even though she’s human and not a shifter. They say if you can’t stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen – with this pair resistance is futile, the attraction rampant and their interactions steamy and they don’t need to be in the kitchen to turn the temperature up in this brilliantly crafted paranormal romance.

This is something paranormally different from this author and I loved reading it! The characters and plot are, as usual, skilfully developed,  especially when you consider  this is a novella. The author still manages to pack in plenty of descriptions and actions to ensure the reader is turning pages, enthralled in this paranormal romance. It is the first of three paranormal novellas in this series within a series by this author – though other authors are also contributing novellas in the Alaskan Den Men series, each creating a Den of their own. I’ll definitely be looking out for more in this series in future! Here are the titles in the series which were published today:


Thanks to the author for letting me read an ARC of this novella in exchange for this, my honest review.


A proposal worth considering…

For werebear Silas Vane, finding his True Mate has proven more difficult than he imagined and he’s getting grouchier by the minute waiting for her to come along. When a nosy, new hire starts asking questions about why he wants to marry so badly—he tells her—so he can have sex every day!

Fresh out of graduate school, Lexi Durham takes her first counseling job at Denali Crossings, a wilderness therapy camp in rural Alaska. When she spies on the super fine camp cook looking at an internet dating site, she offers to help.

Silas gets the surprise of his life when she offers to be his sex once-a-day girl. It’s a deal he can’t refuse, only she’s a human, and things could get complicated.

This book is available from a variety of sources including

Amazon (UK)         Amazon (US)        Barnes and Noble
