Every Shifter has a mate. She's his. Now all he has to do is convince her that what they have between them is more than lust—much more.
When Harper's life begins a death spiral, she does what any self respecting woman would do—she heads for the mountains. More specifically, Grizzly Ridge. A brand new—and very remote—lodge in the wilds of Montana where the last thing she expects to find is a very alpha, very sexy mountain man who's more than a little wild himself and doesn't waste any time reigniting feelings in her she’d long since buried.
From the moment he lays eyes on her, Axel knows the curvy brunette is more than just a guest at his lodge. Much more. Every bear shifter has a mate. She’s his. And whether his brothers believe in fated mates or not, nothing will keep Axel from what's his. But first he’ll need to convince Harper that what she’s feeling is more than lust. It’s fate.
Reader note: His to Protect is a full length stand alone bear shifter novel with no Cliffhangers! This series contains: strong, sassy, curvy women; sexy alpha males; steamy shifters and sizzling sex scenes.
Loved it. Sometimes romance novels can be overwhelming. Not this one. The story is simple enough for me to thoroughly "experience" it along with all characters and still function as a normal after I was done. It felt like building memories55
it’s a nice read, the brotherhood and friendship,55
Great book. I loved the characters and the plots. I enjoyed reading it immensely!55
Good thing the story was free or else I would be requesting a refund. How the story progressed just felt too fast and unrealistic. I know it’s a paranormal romance but realistic in the sense of how people form relationships and fall in love. The characters feelings just felt all over the place and inconsistent. It was hard to keep up and made it frustrating to read. I didn’t bother to finish the book. Half way in characters profess their love for each other and the ‘conflict’ is too obvious.15
Paranormal romance come to life. It’s a quick read & flows amazingly. If you enjoy a little drama and a happy ending then this is a book for you.45
I really wanted to like this book. I’m okay with the concept. However, too much happens too fast. The brothers have been disowned by the only family they have. That’s a big deal, but we are whooshed right along to a grand opening. Our heroine who is apparently a lousy judge of character (see: Trent), is attracted at first sight (okay, mates), but willing to do his brother. AND isn’t put off by alarmingly irrational jealous behavior. The scene in the kitchen had red flags all over it. Speeding along, we have the Big Furry Reveal, and somehow the heroine digests this rapidly and it’s not even a speed bump as we already have to deal with The Evil Ex. I’ve saved him for last. Because their relationship being so long and entwined with her dad is so implausible that it made me doubt her judgement about everything. Just having him be gay and realizing it would have worked just fine for the plot. It’s a hard, heartbreaking process for everyone involved. There was no need for extra drama. Instead we got !Gay !Criminal !Sociopath Trent, and I felt exhausted just try to keep my disbelief suspended. Overall, too rushed and overly dramatic. Maybe a beta reader or different editor would help. Definitely keep writing, just take it easy. Readers will still be here!35
Very good read45
This one started out with a decent hook. I’ve read plenty of mountain man stories and my share of shifter stories so I had a good idea of what to expect. The sexual tension was described pretty well and the sex scene I read was sizzling hot, but I could not get past the lack of editing and the feeling of it being rushed. I felt like the interactions between the characters should have played out differently. Like in the very start, if I was isolated on a mountain and my hosts started fist fighting, it wouldn’t be something to just brush off. I realize that both main characters were feeling some serious hormones for each other but there was hardly any buildup, the back story creeping in felt like it wasn’t important and not well placed in their thoughts, and the fact that secrets were revealed almost immediately left me feeling like a big chunk of the book was cut out to save time.35
Was a good book. Enjoyed45
Cute, nice, light short story. Simple enough characters and plot for a quick enjoyable read. A few awkward preposition phrase placements, but grammar basically good. Spellcheck missed two blatant errors: page 160 - not sure what "...price..." should have been; ...jet "leg" should obviously be lag.35
