Saving Grace by Bianca D'Arc
Series: Grizzly Cove #5
Genres: Paranormal Romance
As Game Warden, Jack Chambers is responsible for the wildlife in and around Grizzly Cove, but he never expected to find a badly injured mermaid washed up on the shore near his house. He takes her in and helps her back to health, only to learn of the much greater danger held at bay, just off shore, and how it’s affecting the ocean-going shifter population.
Jack’s immediate problem is the pull the leviathan still has over the woman he is fast coming to believe is his mate. He has to save her, but they also need to work through the problems of a land shifter and a mermaid getting together. Can they make the relationship work? Or is he going to end up broken hearted when she returns to her watery home?
And who even knew there were mer people off shore? This is something the residents of Grizzly Cove are going to have to figure out, especially with the leviathan out there too, still posing a great threat to all creatures of the Light.
I have to tell you that I am enjoying this series more and more. While this was a pretty quick read (it took me about an hour) it was so worth it. Jack quickly became my favorite guy in Grizzly Cove. He enjoys his time alone but there is just something strong about him. Like he is the type of guy who doesn’t say much but when he does pay attention because it’s important. He is the Game Warden and enjoys his job. He stumbles across a woman on the beach who is injured and has washed ashore. He is amazed to learn that Grace is a mermaid and instantly feels drawn to her.
Grace has spent many years in her mer form and until now really hasn’t wanted to stay ashore. He mother is a mermaid while her father is human so she does know of both worlds but is happiest in the water. However from the moment she awakens in Jack’s bed there is something about him. They both realize quickly that they are each other’s mate but how does a bear and mermaid make all that work out? Not to mention the call of the evil in the water is so strong with Grace that she walks out there in the middle of the night. Had Jack not shown up there is no telling what would of happened.
Like I said I quickly became attached to this series and I just adore the bears and the little town they are building for themselves. That started out as an experiment because bears typically don’t live together in a group has quickly became so much more as other types of shifters, humans, and witches join them. This book was well written and the characters are developed wonderfully. I found myself hoping that Jack and Grace could figure it out and when a vision of more mer people is seen I was thrilled!
