New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Ashley continues her Shifters Unbound series with the tale of a hot hunk of a bear Shifter on the hunt for a mate…

Cormac has been moving from one Shiftertown to the next in search of a mate. Now he’s in Southern Nevada, where a beautiful, unmated bear Shifter greets him…with a shotgun in her hands.

Nell is a hot-tempered mother of two cubs, and she doesn’t take kindly to new Shifters showing up in town without her consent—even one with a sexy smile and brilliant blue eyes.

But when her sons are endangered and she desperately needs help protecting them, Cormac proves he’s worthy of her trust as well as her desire.

A quick novella that dives back into the wonderful world of Shifters Unbound, a series that is wonderfully built and well done. It has it all, rich history, great characters, and new surprises always popping up.

This is an older novella, but it had the same chemistry between Nell and Cormac I’ve come to expect. And the way and the reasons that Cormac seeks out Nell is just plain romantic and well done.

There is a bit of suspense thrown in with some bad humans and bad shifters that allow Cormac to show that he really means it when he says he loves Nell, and will protect her and her sons. I really enjoyed this story, yes it is quick, and Nell and Cormac fall for each other fast, but when it’s right it’s right. These two are definitely right and meant for each other.

Just enough history and story to satisfy old friends of the series, and enough of a taste of the author’s writing style and the world of shifters to hook in new readers. Ms. Ashley has a written a fabulous story to showcase her world all the while only being a short enough read to whet your appetite for more.
