Can Merrick accept a truebond? When danger comes can the men save Gemma before it is too late and they all loose?
Christmas may have arrived in Paradise, but it is definitely not a time of peace. Emotions are running the gamut of everything from mild interest to passion burning bright. Murder and mayhem run throughout the town even as Paradise continues to grow.
You will not want to put "Return to Paradise” down for a moment. Tianna Xander has written a story with a fascinating plot filled with intrigue and danger. The passion will have you diving into an ice bucket to cool down. Not to mention readers have a whole platoon of sexy men to drool over. The descriptions of both the town and the residents that live there are realistic. You will imagine you have met them while visiting Paradise before.
This is the third book in the Paradise series and can be read as a standalone. Yet as a personal preference I recommend you read the series from the beginning in order to understand the overall storyline. You will get the characters interactions and how they fit into the town infrastructure. Tianna Xander has created a world shared by humans and shifters that live in peace together. Pick up a copy for yourself to enjoy. You might just end up getting a copy for a friend as well. This is a series you will be reading and sharing again and again.
