You know how it is! You have a dozen books ready to be read and more than that on your to be read list so what do you do? You read an old favorite! This quickly became an old favorite for me!
An Unexpected Affair
Clarice Adler is off to find some peace and finish her novel. Enter Derek McMillan who is the caretaker/owner of where she is staying and whom Clarice thinks is married yet feels pulled towards. Derek for his part has not only never mated but doesn’t want to. That is until Clarice comes into his life but he has enough on his plate with his brother being back in town with information on their parents deaths. This was the perfect way to start this series. The romance is a bit of a slow build up but once it does..look out! I enjoyed both characters and it was very well written.
A Dangerous Business
Aidan McMillan works for the Alliance which is a group of different species that work together to keep all species safe. They are currently working on a mission to stop humans who are attempting to destroy all shifters. Heidi Blackwood is an alpha’s daughter who has been sent to work with the Alliance on their mission. Heidi knows who Aidan is the moment she meets him but is confused because he not the same as her. While Aidan may need the advice of his brother to land this mate. I wanted to know more about Aidan from the first book so I loved that he was next in the series. These two really needed one another. The story was the perfect “you can’t control who you love” themed. Both characters were once again well written as were the secondary characters.
A Forbidden Love
Jamie Abbott is the leader of the Alliance and met a girl when he was just 13 years old that he has never forgotten. He lost his younger brother that same day and has no idea what happened to him. Alison Campbell is human and about to be interrogated by Jamie and boy are they about to get a surprise. This book did leave us with a cliffhanger that will lead into the next which honeslty I think was really important. I enjoyed this book and could easily see Jamie’s guilt at having lost his brother while paying attention to a girl.
Sugar & Spice: A Scottish Werebear Xmas Anthology
This is a short read that has us catching up with the first three couples. It is a simple holiday celebration where we get three small short stories of each couple. I really enjoyed it and if I didn’t have the entire collection this would have been a great tide me over until the next one read.
A New Beginning
Matthew Argyle was kidnapped when he was only 7 years old and his brother has been looking for him since. Matt knows that he turns into a bear but has no idea why and since the woman who kidnapped him died and left him her house he has become a recluse. He likes to keep to himself but all that changes when Leah Hudson moves in next door. Here we find out what happens to Jamie’s brother and I will tell you that if I thought Jamie was awesome Matt was even better for me. Him and Leah could not have been more perfect for one another. View Spoiler »Also I really liked that Matt didn’t get treated horribly by his kidnappers. After all he shifts into a bear and things could have been really awful! « Hide Spoiler
A Painful Dilemma
Henry Weston works for the Alliance and has certain way of thinking. He has a live in love, Maggie, and while things haven’t been perfect they have been alright. Now when his mission changes he knows things have to change and he meets Gail McPherson who is the perfect partner for him. Gail is Henry’s true mate but like I said he already has a mate and well doesn’t that cause a problem. All in all this book was a good read but I have to ask View Spoiler »What happened to Maggie? « Hide Spoiler
A Second Chance
James Finch encounters Charlie McAllister, a woman from his past, and realizes that he wants more than ever. Charlie doesn’t understand why after being the best of friends James just moved away. She was hurt and now has to decide if she wants to let him back into her life. This one had a great story line but for some reason was my least favorite of the series. I can’t pin point any one thing I just wasn’t as crazy about it.
