Love to Bear by A. T. Mitchell
Publisher: Red Ice Press (November 2013)
135 pages, eBook (purchased myself for $2.99)
Book Rating: 3 Stars
Sensuality: Red Heart
Wandering in the woods with a broken heart, Sam comes upon a huge bear that appears to change into a man before her eyes, then she passes out. When she wakes she finds that Don truly is a bear shifter and has smuggled her back to his cabin despite his clan's strict isolationist policies. I have enjoyed other stories by this author and was excited to see a shifter romance, but I felt this story was a little heavy on the sex scenes. There were a few plot difficulties that bothered me (the heroine drinking to the point of getting a hangover the next morning just after finding out she's pregnant; and given Don's medical/scientific ignorance due to the clan's isolation and his declaration that he never uses them, his assurances about not needing a condom seemed fairly weak). If you are looking for a quick erotic read with a shifter twist, this may be right up your alley, but I got a bit too caught up in the details.
