Waking the Bear

Shifter Wars, #1

First off, I just love this cover, very eye catching and we all know a good cover can catch our eye. That being said, the story matches the cover, very pleasing.

The strong alpha, Griff could make anyone fall for him, me included. Amy is a perfect fit for him, she is a strong female (I mean come on) as she faces off with a lion shifter. Waking the Bear is a quick shifter read that will have you coming back for more from this author, I know I will.

Griff is a National Park ranger who takes pride in protecting the people who live in the small town and others who visit the park. Amy is an artist who lost her job and dumped her boyfriend before renting Griff's mountain cabin. Amy finds herself needing to be rescued several times by the strong Griff, for there is danger in the forest Amy needs protecting from.

Book Blurb for Waking the Bear

Sexy shifter passion is awakened when two unlikely lovers are challenged by secrets, danger and an unstoppable need to claim one's mate…

For human Amy Francis, the secluded cabin in Deep Creek is the haven she needs to map out a fresh new start. She never expected her heart to be reawakened by a distraction like Griff Martin, commanding yet gentle, too ferociously sensual to ignore. It's clear that patrolling the forest is more than a job to Griff—it's a means of survival. But what Amy doesn't realize is she's reawakened the beast within him.

Griff's dormant hunger is stirred by this intoxicating woman…and threatened by the secret she must never learn. Duty-bound to defend his bear clan against an avenging pride of lion shifters, Griff's entire world is upended when he meets Amy. His animal need to claim his mate has taken hold, but that very desire could seal her fate as an unwitting pawn in battle.

Now, as a shifter war looms, Griff must decide between letting Amy go or following his most carnal instincts. To have her would change his life…but risk everything he knows and was born to protect.
