This is a great addition to this series which stars Alaskan were bear shifters finding their mates. Each story in the series can be read as a standalone, so don’t worry if this is the first one you’ll try, you don’t need to have read the others to appreciate this one. In this story, Kayla Mackenzie can’t believe her clients want to get married in Alaska. She’s used to arranging weddings in cities or warm, tropical locales, definitely not Alaska! She’s not only wary of the temperature but also because of a childhood experience, is definitely hoping not to encounter any werebears . . . . However, when were bear outdoor adventure guide, Trent Black walks into the dining room of her hotel, he recognises she’s his fated mate. With a great hostess suggesting he helps Kayla investigate possible locations for the wedding, life’s about to get interesting for them both – especially when the weather also decides to strand them in an isolated cabin during a blizzard!
This is a humorous, paranormal romance where preconceived ideas have instilled fear that needs to be overcome for love to find a way to enable them to achieve their HEA. The writing is engaging, the characters well developed and the plot involves the journey to healing and changing viewpoints. It is a delightful short but sweet read that I recommend to anyone who enjoys shifter romances.
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest opinion after choosing to read it.
Wedding planner Kayla Mackenzie specializes in creating spectacular destination weddings in exotic locations. But when her newest clients decide they want to get married in the wilds of Alaska, anxiety rears its ugly head. Sticking to cosmopolitan cities and tropical beaches allows her to avoid the one creature that scares her more than the words “prenuptial agreement.” But heading to the heart of werebear country means she’ll have to face her biggest fear.
Outdoor adventure guide Trent Black gets grouchier each day that goes by without finding his mate. But the last woman he expects to ignite his possessive instincts is a high maintenance human like Kayla. It’s bad enough she hates everything to do with the outdoors, but her obvious fear of bear shifters leaves him questioning his attraction. When fate steps in and strands them in a late winter blizzard, he has one chance to help her to overcome her fear and open her heart.
Warning! Sexy bear shifters, steamy love scenes, and a wild ride to the happily ever after! While you might run into some favorite characters, each book in the Kodiak Den series is a standalone featuring a different couple.
