He carries handcuffs, a HUGE nightstick, and my heart.

Never trust a shifter. That’s what Cordelia’s notorious witch mom always told her. But with malevolent magic in the air, the local shifter pack is pointing their furry fingers in Cordelia’s direction. If she’s going to save her witch skin and stop causing inadvertent tornadoes, Cordelia has to go on the run. First stop? The town of Forbidden.

With a magical fugitive on the loose, it’s up to shifter law enforcement to find her. Bear shifter Matt is on the case if he doesn’t run her over first. When he cuffs her to his bed, he knows he has to turn her in.

Two problems: she’s naked, and she’s his mate.

Title:  Caught in Forbidden
Series:  Alphas & Alchemy: Fierce Mates #4
Author:  Keira Blackwood & Liza Street

My Rating:  4.5 stars

It’s time to return once again to the quirky, weird, and just crazy town of Forbidden for another taste of hijinx of the supernatural kind and another Shifter finding his mate under most unexpected circumstances.  I absolutely adore the stories set in Forbidden, and ‘Caught in Forbidden‘ is no exception to that rule.  We are now four stories into the ‘Alphas & Alchemy: Fierce Mates‘ series and I’m hoping there are several more stories ahead for us because this series is addictive.

Cordelia is a witch with, to her knowledge, no actual powers – yet, weird things are happening around her when she’s frightened or threatened.  Things like the area around her turning into a mini-tornado, and oh, that aging of any Shifter nearby.  She’s not casting but something is causing this chaos and it has her on the run from the pack in her hometown and heading straight for Forbidden and answers… eventually.

Matt never expected to discover his mate by practically running her over on the road after a long shift as one of the town’s police officers.  And he really didn’t expect that she’d toss a tornado in his direction and escape either.  His need to help Cordelia is so strong, but man, weird things are happening around his mate – enough to have him questioning his own sanity.

Once again the B & B plays a large part in the mayhem that’s happening in ‘Caught in Forbidden‘ – if it could speak that former asylum sure has some answering to do for itself!  I love Pearl.  She has been a constant that has caught my attention as her role seems to keep increasing book by book, so she is one witch I’d not want to be on the bad side of that’s for sure.  In all, I had a blast back in Forbidden once again.  If you love quirky, weird small towns, a bit of chaos, steamy moments, and characters who come alive on the pages then you’ll want to pick up this series… right now.
