My Rating:  4 stars

Bear Mountain Bride is a fast paced, action filled, sexy romance that will capture your attention.  The basics that you may need to make a decision on reading this one are in the cover description, so I’m not going over that again.

I’m intrigued by the lore behind these bear shifters who live at the Compound.  And I would actually love to learn more about each individual that we ran into in this story.  I’ve got Bear Mountain Baby downloaded to begin next, so perhaps I’ll get that wish.  Although, the ending confused me a bit on the future of a series so I’m going to leave those thoughts in my head and move on while I wait to see what develops.

Tessa is a strong character.  While, yes, she has become afraid of her husband, she rarely backs down or falls apart.  What Lucas is putting her through is enough to make the strongest woman cry.

Atticus is Alpha to his clan/tribe (both words are used in this story) and has kept them all well protected and hidden at the Compound.  They might keep themselves protected, but they are not afraid to protect the mountain and its residents.  That fact is proven by their watching over Tessa,and Atticus coming to her rescue.  I liked all of the brothers and would love to know their individual stories at some point.

I enjoyed myself in this world, and should it develop into a series I would definitely follow it.  I’d recommend this story for any Paranormal Romance or Shifter Romance reader who enjoys action, danger, mystery, oh so sexy times and likable, believable characters.
