My Review:

This is a moving paranormal novella second chance romance. Following the death of her mother at the hands (or claws!) of a rogue bear shifter, diamond empire heiress Aurora Starr is taken away from her home in Claw Ridge by her vengeful father. Her father became a cold hearted business man, striving to ruin the bear shifters and to keep his daughter away from her teen love, the bear shifter, Adam Wylde. Following his funeral, however, Aurora has a final task to fulfil for her father – to scatter his ashes at Starr Point on Claw Ridge and discover the truth. The attraction between Adam and Aurora is still there, he still recognises her as his mate but time has passed, can they rekindle their romance or has her father’s negative attitude to shifters changed hers, too? When the two are trapped by an avalanche will their love have a second chance to achieve their HEA?

This is a delightful, quick but packed read, with some great characters. Aurora is aware that returning to Claw Ridge makes it very likely she’ll meet her old sweetheart and is wary to do so but sassy enough to go anyway. She doesn’t know if he’s moved on to someone new and forgotten about her. I loved how resilient Adam proves to be, determined to woo her – especially as werebear mating season approaches!

This is a great start to the new series within a series. If you enjoy your romance with strong Alpha shifters with a real caring heart or a brilliant second chance romance, this is a great story for you.  I really enjoyed getting to know the characters in this Den – I can’t wait to read more from the whole series in the near future!


When an Alaskan avalanche traps Adam and Aurora together, it will take more than hot sex to survive the bitter cold of Claw Ridge. Aurora is everything Adam doesn’t want, but may be exactly what he needs.

Princess to a diamond empire, Aurora Starr wasn’t your typical girl next door. Sassy, sweet and hell on Adam’s grizzly senses she’s fated to be his mate. Or so he thought. When the brutal death of her mother sweeps Aurora a world away Adam Wylde struggles to forget her sensual curves and sexy green eyes. Now that she’s ventured into his territory once again not even an Alaskan snow storm can cool the fires of the werebear mating season her sudden appearance ignites. Something he hoped to never feel again.

On a mission to seek out the truth her late father promised, Aurora returns to Claw Ridge one last time before ascending the throne to her family’s fortune. What she finds instead sends her down a dangerous path that leads straight to Adam Wylde, her one and only weakness.

Can these two lovers survive the perfect storm with their second chance romance?
