Lure of the Bear (Aloha Shifters: Jewels of the Heart #3)

Secrets. Fears. Burning desires. A bear shifter willing to risk everything for love.

They stood facing each other for a full minute, speechless. Any second, Hunter figured, his brief stint in heaven would be over — just being close to Dawn was heaven — so he imprinted the moment onto his mind. A wisp of hair had strayed out of her single braid, and the sea breeze twirled it exactly the way he fantasized about doing himself. The sun shone from high overhead, casting her face into smooth fields of shadow and light. When her gaze wandered to his chest then snapped back to his eyes, her throat bobbed with a tiny swallow.

Hunter gulped, too, because it was happening again. That magical aura that overwhelmed him every time he came close to his mate. The sensation that rose out of nowhere and wound around the two of them, locking the outside world away. The hum of passing cars, the scratch of insects in the surrounding scrub — all sound faded until the only thing Hunter heard was the beat of his heart. All he saw was the faint rise and fall of Dawn’s shoulders with each deep breath. Her face was bright and clear, but everything else grew blurry, as if the sun was slowly turning a lens and focusing all its light on her.

This is your mate. A whisper came from somewhere deep in the earth. This is your destiny.

Dawn’s eyes shone brighter, and she leaned forward slightly.

She needs you as much as you need her, the voice said, coaxing him along.

Anna Lowe. Lure of the Bear (Kindle Locations 280-291). Twin Moon Press.

There’s not much that can get this grizzly shifter worked up — except a threat to the woman he has secretly loved for years. Then, all bets are off, and he’s willing to risk anything — including the most closely guarded secret of his lonely shifter soul.

Trust issues? Officer Dawn Meli has a few. She’s not ready to rely on any man — especially one who can turn into a raging beast. But strong, silent Hunter, with his steady voice and soulful eyes, calls to something deep in her scarred soul. So much so, that she’s dangerously tempted to let her wild side free. At the same time, she has other problems to concentrate on, what with a valuable gem, a celebrity wedding, and a tropical storm all converging on Maui at the same time. Hardly the time to give in to simmering desire — even if destiny has different ideas.

Be Still My Beating Heart! Another great story from one terrific writer! There were times I wanted to stand up and cheer for this couple. There were also times when I wanted to shake them. Wonderful!
