Hello, Readers! Today, I am visiting High House Ursa once again in the 4th book of the series - Shifting Alliances by Riley Storm! Enjoy and don't forget to add Shifting Alliances to your shelves!
Working at a dive bar on the outskirts of Plymouth Falls, Amber Ferlund can’t fall any further. But when the darkness inside her rears its head yet again, driving her out into the cold darkness of a northern winter, she realizes there’s always one more level of hell. Having abandoned herself, she waits for death to free her from looming insanity. What she doesn’t expect is that her savior will appear dressed in black, his sword stopping a hair from her throat. Nor that he will be so good looking.
Kasperi is on the hunt. He and his fellow bear shifters have been dispatched to investigate reports of magic being used in Plymouth Falls. Now, hot on the heels of the rogue mage, he readies his weapon and prepares to rid the world of yet another enemy, before they can kill more of his friends. But he stays his hand at the sight of the beautiful but beleaguered woman, alone in the forest, moments from freezing to death. She’s no threat to him, is she?
His fellow shifters disagree, but Kasperi knows they’re wrong. This woman needs aid, not the blade of his sword. Together, they must teach her how to control her gifts, to use them for good before they corrupt her completely. Nearby wait his former fellows, ready to take her head for the slightest mistake, and deeper in the shadows lurks a stronger enemy, one who recognizes Amber’s true potential. But, if anyone wants to get to Amber, they’ll have to go through Kasperi first, because he’ll protect his mate at all costs.
The bears of High House Urse may still be struggling against traitors within their house but they sure know to entertain readers. The is never a dull moment to be found during the fourth book of the series as one bear struggles to keep a young woman alive when all of his fellow bears are screaming “off with her head!” Kasperi and Amber are two strong, vivid characters that easily pull readers into their story and make them feel as if they are part of all the excitement taking place including the sizzling chemistry that burns between them. This romance is on rocky ground from the very beginning as Amber struggles to accept all the things that are being thrown at her which has lots of emotional turmoil flowing from the pages and adding depth to the story.
The story starts off with a bang as Amber goes up against a dirt bag in a surprising way and Kasperi and his team was sent to eliminate a rogue mage and only Kasperi is willing to take a stand against her immediate execution when they find a confused young woman on the verge of freezing to death. This fast paced story continues to keep readers on the edge of their seat with lots of suspense and excitement as Kasperi finds himself up against everyone in House Ursa, having to train Amber to control her magic while struggling with the possibility of having magic himself and an unknown enemy that has recognized the true potential of both. The story is full of never ending excitement, surprising twists and super-hot passion that readers can get lost in.

Riley is one of those early-morning people you love to hate, because she swears she doesn't need caffeine, even though the coffee-maker is connected to her smartphone. She lives in a three-story townhouse by the good graces of a tabby-cat who rules the house, the couch, the table, well, basically everywhere. When she's not groveling for forgiveness for neglecting to pet her kitty enough, Riley is strapped in to her writing chair coming up with crazy worlds where she can make her own decisions of when feeding time is and how much coffee can be drank without her friends--of which she has three--holding yet another intervention that they threaten to post on the internet.
