Beverly has flirted with every man in Bear Creek! OK, that might be a small exaggeration, but that’s how it seems. Worse, every man she’s ever flirted with turns right around and immediately settles down with his perfect woman. 

What’s wrong with her? 

All that changes when Liam walks into her life. He’s perfect, apart from one tiny detail. He owns Bear Creek Mountain Stores, and Beverly doesn’t want to be a small-town store owners wife. Not after spending her life as a small-town store owner’s daughter, and watching her parent’s relationship suffer for it. 

Beverly wants fun and excitement. 

Liam took over the store to recoup the investment made by his mom, that his brother wasted, before getting arrested as a drug smuggler. He had no intention of staying in Bear Creek once he’d accomplished his goal. His life, his career, was elsewhere. 

But his mate is here! 

Beverly, a bundle of fun, wrapped up in the perfect package. Curves in all the right places, she sure knows how to handle herself. So when trouble threatens, he is more than happy to team up with her and save the day—Or the eagles! 

Who says small-town life is boring? 

Just don’t mention the eggs… 

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

Title:  Undercover Eagle
Series:  Return to Bear Creek #14
Author:  Harmony Raines
Published:  January 14, 2018
My Rating:  4.5 stars

Beverly has been a secondary character throughout most of the Return to Bear Creek series.  Don’t really remember her?  Perhaps you’ll remember a very forward flirty woman who has her eyes out for any hot man that walks into her family grocery store.  Yeah, I thought you’d remember her.  Yet there are always two sides to every person, the one the public sees and judges – and then there’s the private one with the fears and longings inside that we all have.  I was very glad to see Beverly get her chance at a happy ending.  She never came across to me as an obnoxious flirt, simply a woman who likes men, likes to flirt a bit and means no true harm in her actions.

Beverly is about to step outside of her comfort zone and get involved with the Mountain Search & Rescue team of volunteers from Bear Creek.  She’s always looked for adventure in the handsome men she flirts with, now she’s looking to herself to provide the adventure part of her life by signing up to help those in need on the mountain.  She had no clue that the one hot man who she never met in her family grocery story is about to slide right into her life… or that shifters exist and this eagle shifter is about to claim her as his mate.

I really enjoyed Liam.  He’s a bit of a mystery, a man on a mission to reclaim his family honor after his brother turned out to be such a jerk.  And to protect his mother’s investment in the outdoors shop that she funded.  Taking a break from his other life gave him the chance to put things to right for his mother.  He wasn’t expecting to find his mate here, but everything changes when he volunteers for the rescue team as well.

I enjoyed Undercover Eagle very much.  Liam and Beverly felt natural together as they faced danger, discovering that they’re mates and a future here in Bear Creek.  Definitely a steamy, sexy couple.  There are a few surprises, many familiar faces and a really good story in Undercover Eagle.

It’s also the perfect segue story for Ms. Raines’ spin-off from Bear Creek entitled Silverbacks and Second Chances which is part of the new Shifters In Love-Fun & Flirty Romances line.  The first story in this new series launches in a few days from now – so keep an eye out for that.  First off we’ll meet Liam’s mother and I’m looking forward to that.
