Cover Description:

Blood is thicker…

Polar Bear Shifter Jake has always wanted a real family. People to love and care about him, nothing like his foster father who saw him as nothing more than a punching bag. He testified against the monster and put him away for good, or so he thought.

Delilah is an orphan, she knows the struggle of being alone all too well, but when she meets Jake suddenly she has everything she ever wanted. Until someone threatens to take it all away.

Jake has to defend his mate against his one true enemy. His own family. But will he be able to keep her safe, when he has to defeat his own demons as well?

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

Read on for my thoughts on River Bear.

Xavier, the Alpha of the Blue Bear Rescue clan, has brought in a private investigator to try to find out who exactly is out to ruin the rescue team.  Obviously, there are Shifter haters among the townsfolk, or maybe simply instigators brought in from an outside source.  But this cannot continue unchecked or unaddressed so Xavier hired Delilah – and that’s when things got interesting.

The Blue Bear Rescue group is a wonderful rag-tag bunch of jokers, grumpy bears, an intense gorilla shifter and what some might call a shaman…a magic man.  Now Nash has visions, they don’t always come true exactly to the letter of what he sees – but usually close enough to be besides the point.  And a vision he’s seen is haunting Jake.  His bear standing over an wounded or dying woman with blood on his mouth as though Jake had killed this woman.  Jake doesn’t believe himself capable of harming a woman, yet Nash’s vision leaves him uneasy.  Especially when the P.I. that his Alpha has hired is the spitting image of the woman in that cursed vision.

Delilah is stubborn, capable, feisty, human and Jake’s mate.  Which simply strikes fear into Jake, how could he ever harm his mate?  It makes no sense.  But as he gets to know Delilah, admire her spunk and her sheer sexiness Jake makes the decision to harm himself before he would ever be the cause of one scratch on this beautiful woman.

Funny thing about visions – they are full of possibilities, not actuality.  When it becomes obvious that the trouble his clan is having has a direct link to Jake’s past he vows to do everything in his power to protect his mate and his friends – and if that means putting his own life on the line, so be it.

I adore Jake.  He’s funny, charming and sexy as all get out – and loyal to a fault.  His mate is a perfect match for this bear who has gone through the foster system and seen the ugliest parts of it, as his mate has as well.  They are indeed a perfect match.  And sexy times between these two definitely sizzle.  *grin*

If you love Shifter Romance then you’ll want to continue the Blue Bear Rescue series with River Bear.  Things are heating up, and you won’t want to miss a single thing.
