Halle Shifters, Book 5
James “Barney” Barnwell is losing his ever-loving mind. Between the threat to the white shifters and a riddle he’s been ordered to solve, he can actually go for ten whole minutes without thinking about Heather, the woman destined to be his mate.
As much as he burns to get the redhead under him, the safest place for her is far away from him. If the bad guys catch the barest hint of her scent on his skin, she’ll become a target.
The way Heather sees it, the quicker she helps the stubborn Bear solve the riddle, the quicker he’ll bite her—literally. But when she’s hurt while protecting her cousin from an attack, she finds herself right where Barney never wanted her: smack dab in the middle of the investigation.
Like it or not, Barney is forced to bring her fully into his crazy world. With his mate’s life in his hands, he’s in a race against time to solve this maddening riddle before the enemy discovers that the Hunter has finally been caught by love.
Warning: This book contains explicit sex, graphic language, lots of questions and maybe even some answers. Remember: Fox holds the key.
I have been reading this series for a while now (well really it is three series, the Halle Pumas, Poconos Pack, and Halle Shifters), and I am not sure why I haven’t reviewed it here before. They tend to be shorter but highly satisfying reads and while the first two series or more traditional paranormal romances, the Halle Shifters has had a mystery threaded through the romances. While the last book wasn’t my favorite in terms of the romance, the overall mystery has me very intrigued.
And I am pleased to say the romance was hot, I liked the characters, I liked the new characters we have been introduced to, and the mystery has just been blown wide open. War is coming.
And frankly that is kind of all I can say without spoiling the plot for the whole series. I am a ridiculous person who thinks they are going to hop in and review book 5 (well book 5 in the series, book 12 overall) first. See, completely ridiculous.
But seriously, this is a fun paranormal series, and it tends to be a less expensive one as well. So if you like shifters (and don’t mind fated mates, mystery, and family/pack bonds, definitely check them out.
