WAKING THE BEAR

Image of Waking the Bear: A Sexy Bear Shifter Romance (Shifter Wars Book 1)
Author(s): 

The first book in the Shifter Wars series is full of interesting secondary characters, high-stakes conflict between rival bear and lion clans, and suspenseful action scenes, but the romance is underdeveloped and overshadowed by the extensive backstories and occasionally awkward worldbuilding necessary to establish the action plot. Adrienne revised and expanded this book from a novella previously published in Spring Fever: Shifters in Love.

Amy Francis, an artist, arrives in Deep Creek Forest seeking solace and refreshment after ending a painful relationship and abandoning a soul-sucking job. Her determination to avoid men is abandoned when she meets her new landlord, Griff. Griff Martin, a park ranger in Deep Creek and member of the Deep Creek Bears, can’t afford any distractions after learning that an old resentful adversary might be back looking for revenge, but he can’t resist the pull of the mating urge he feels toward Amy. Wandering too far from her cabin might cost Amy her life and launch a war between the Sen Pal Lions and Deep Creek Bears. (CARINA, dl $3.99)
