This was my first “Shifter” read and I found it to be a very sweet story. Who knew bears could be so sexy ?! =)
Ryland is the owner of a private fishing lodge (The Ursa Fishing Lodge) on Gemini Island, which is basically a haven for the shifter race. A place where young shifters can learn to come into their own in peace where they'll be safe. A place where no one has to worry about being themselves.....Pure serenity.
Everything was indeed serene until Ryland's rock star hot shot brother Soren showed up fearing for his life. This comes as no surprise to Ryland why someone would want his brother's bear head stuffed and mounted in his home. Seems he's had a lifetime full of events like this, whether it be his womanizing ways, or his rock star habits. While they're about to hash it out in the woods after a heated argument in full bear form – a human woman shows up, obviously running away from something or some one. And lands herself right in front of a polar bear and a grizzly bear. Before she screams herself into oblivion, Ryland and Soren shift back to human form.
In all of their naked glory.... Poor
girl passes out...
After they get her comfortable and settled in, Ryland already starts to feel this sort of pull of desire towards her. Soren just flat out see's her as just another sexual conquest. Especially when he figures out his brother may be harboring some feelings for her. They find out disturbing news when she awakens and reveals her identity – she's Lia Goodblood an up and coming author, who after debuting a smash hit in the Erotica genre has seemed to fancy herself a creepy stalker. Who wants to love her to death. . . Now the brothers must put their difficulties aside in order to keep Lia safe.
Trust will be tested and emotions will pull at you while Lia learns to overcome her fear of animals to be on an island populated by shifters while she hides from her crazed fan. In the end will she be able to stand proud next to her bear man... Whichever one she chooses?
The sensuality of Ms. Leo's writing is very in depth and her details to what the characters feel for each other are spot on. She will take you on a panty-clenching journey you won't forget any time soon. Let's just say that honey will definitely be on my list of things to try, for sure... *Snicker*
I was very happy with this book and cannot wait for the next one she writes for us!!
