Orson Antonov has everything: billions of dollars, stunning good looks, and the respect of his bear shifter clan. The only thing he can’t have is his freedom. Forced to marry a woman he doesn’t love to unite the clans, can Orson find the strength to break free?

When he meets Casey, the beautiful, full-figured woman of his dreams, he invites her to his luxurious mansion in the woods. He hopes he has finally found the inspiration to fight for freedom… and for love.

Casey dreams of launching her part-time catering jobs into a large scale business. She loves to feed people almost as much as she hates crappy dates and being told she is not good enough because of her size.

When the mysterious and unbearably sexy Orson comes into her life, everything changes. Swept into a world of stunning luxury and warring bears, can Casey survive the exciting and terrifying world of her new mate?

This book includes sassy curvy women, drool-worthy cooking, exciting bear attacks, and a love so hot it sizzles.

This little nugget of a story is fast moving but includes a lot of fun and interesting shifter dynamics. Orson and Casey are the lovers who have to navigate tradition in order to find their happy ever after. The one standing in the way isn’t who I initially thought it was and I enjoyed that revelation.

The author set up the conflict rather well early on, and then introduced the players and the romance. I enjoyed how the shifter’s hearing played a role and the importance of food to the romance. I liked the bits of humor and camaraderie between Casey and her boss, and Orson and Cleo. I also found the bit of world building that the author provided to be sufficient in making why things happened the way they did believable and understandable without being an info dump.

There weren’t too many secondary characters to keep track of. The ones in the story play important roles that help set up the couple’s relationship, or try to dash it. This is basically a character driven romance with the only outside conflict coming from the person who didn’t want Orson to marry or mate, Casey. The confrontation scene was sparse on space but well done on content. What I mean is, it happened fast but the writing gave me everything I needed to feel the drama and excitement of the moment without making me feel like I got cheated. It was well paced and powerful.

As this is an erotic short story, this little book has lots of steamy, sexy and wildly passionate scenes to satisfy anyone who likes erotic paranormal stories. Casey isn’t shy, and Orson basically thinks she’s the crème to his bear puff. They’re exuberant and fun and I really liked them as a couple.

Alpha’s Heir is a treat. It’s fun, flirty, growly and it made me smile. The happy ever after is satisfying and I recommend this short story to any erotic paranormal romance fan who needs a quick fix of sexy fun.
