Frankie’s heart isn’t her own. Literally. So how is she supposed to know if the man she’s met is her fated mate, or that of her borrowed heart? Can she trust in fate? 

Adam always though his fated true mate was dead. He’d built a life on the knowledge that he would be alone forever. Frankie turns all his plans upside down. Yet both have inner ghosts. Ghosts from the past that might destroy their future together. 

In a desperate attempt to uncover the truth, Frankie and Adam must unearth the secrets of who they really are, and who is in charge of their destiny.

Sexy shifters and their feisty mates who aren’t shy about loving each other – so, this is an adult, 18+ reader tale.

Titles in the Silverbacks and Second Chances series include:  Cursed Bear – Lucky BearFated Bear – 

Although this spin-off series is from the Shifters In Love-Fun & Flirty Romances line there are definitely connections to series we know and love.  This series connects in some ways to the Bear Creek series, the Bear Bluff series, the Return to Bear Bluff series and the Return to Bear Creek series.  Characters from all these series seem to visit in quite a neighborly fashion *grin* between Bear Creek and Bear Bluff… so if you haven’t checked them out the list of series is on the Harmony Raines page.

Title:  Fated Bear
Series:  Silverbacks and Second Chances #2
Author:  Harmony Raines
Published:  March 13, 2018
My Rating:  5 stars

Readers of Harmony Raines work already know that this series features characters from her Return to Bear Creek series.  I happen to be a reader who loves the connections and interactions of a long series.  I must admit that this story is my favorite (so far) of the Silverbacks and Second Chances series – and among my top favorites from the Return to Bear Creek series.

Yet, I don’t feel that I can really talk about Fated Bear.  It is an excellent story, loving, emotional and sexy all rolled into one – but to say too much would give away details that really should be experienced firsthand by each reader.  I won’t take that joy and excitement away from future readers.

I loved Frankie and Adam together, they match perfectly.  We’ll get to see all of the couples we’ve met so far once again, and that always makes a book more complete for me personally.  But Frankie and Adam need to tell you their story themselves.  You’ll get emotional, I’d be very surprised if you don’t.  So, know that you are in for a very special treat – and enjoy yourself and indulge in a very happy ever after ending.

I read this title through my Kindle Unlimited subscription.
