Quick historical romance with a ghostly character.
A Ghostly Tale of Forbidden Love - Madeline Martin

This is a tale of finding that love you are willing to give up everything else for. Throw in a ghost bent on revenge and many intrigues and misunderstandings. Senara and Gavin conquer all to have that forever love. I loved how the ghost reached out to Senara and how Gavin allowed his feelings for her to be real rather than give into his past and expectations. I recommend this story.

This is my unsolicited review.

Scottish Werebears: An Unexpected Affair

When romance novelist, Clarice Adler, hides herself away in a secluded holiday cottage to finish a book, the last thing she needs is another relationship. Imagine her surprise when she falls head over heels for the man who runs the place. Derek McMillan knows Clarice is his mate, but he’s a bear shifter and she’s human and the two simply don’t mix. They are literally worlds apart; can they find a way to come together?

 

Scottish Werebears: A Dangerous Business

As part of the Alliance, bear shifter Aidan McMillan is hunting the Sons of Domnall, a secret society of humans sworn to destroy all shifters. Along comes Heidi Blackwood, his fated mate, and it suddenly becomes nearly impossible to focus on the job.

 

Scottish Werebears: A Forbidden Love

Alison Campbell has been told that shifters are evil and the world would be a better place without them. In her efforts to infiltrate the Alliance to gather intel for The Sons of Domnall, she comes across Jamie Abbott, bear shifter and Alliance leader, who doesn’t seem so bad at all. In fact, he seems to be all her heart desires and the feeling is mutual. Where will her loyalties lie when it becomes time to pick a side once and for all?

Audiobook Review - Scottish Werebear 1-3
Scottish Werebear: Books 1-3 - Lorelei Moone

BOXED SET of 1-3.  Titles include: An Unexpected Affair, A Dangerous Business and A Forbidden Love.  Each story is connected.  I recommend reading them together.  

 

An Unexpected Affair

Clarice & Derek clash almost right away.  They really do not seem to get along.  Derek is more than attracted.  He has never felt this way about anyone, human or otherwise.   

 

A Dangerous Business

Aidan & Heidi have to work together to get closer to the Sons of Domnall.  Can they resist the pull that is bringing them closer together?  Aidan waits for her to come to him.  They get closer and when the enemy strikes 

 

A Forbidden Love

Jamie is attracted to a human.  Fated to love a woman who he has seen in years.  Can their secrets remain hidden, or will they tear them apart?

 

These couples are meant to be together from the start.  The sparks fly and the heat is intense.  Such sweet, and sexy stories.  The narrator has a strong, flowing voice.  He helps enhance the story by making it feel more rich.  I give it 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

"Steadfast" by Sarina Bowen
Steadfast (True North Book 2) - Sarina Bowen

I really enjoy Sarina Bowen's books, and I loved the first in this series, Bittersweet (True North #1). The books are set in rural Vermont, where I live, and they feel authentic and genuine (unlike most small town contemporaries, which depict a more Hollywood-esque perfection of imagined small town life). I was really looking forward to Steadfast because of the premise: the hero is a recovering heroin addict who has just gotten out of jail for killing his girlfriend's brother while driving while high. I mean, that's some pretty heavy conflict, right? And I love a good redemption story.

 

Sadly, while the writing was good and the main characters were compelling, and Bowen did a really good job in depicting Jude's addiction and his daily struggle in recovery, Steadfast was a disappointment. The supporting characters were not well developed -- the main characters' parents, siblings, and friends were very two-dimensional, which made plot lines involving these characters less compelling and often less believable. Also, in an effort (I think) to make the hero more heroic, the plot took shortcuts that really disappointed me. (SPOILER HERE:

we learn in the end that Jude wasn't actually driving in the accident that killed the heroine's brother, which struck me as a cop out -- the story would have better if Jude had been redeemed rather than exonerated

(spoiler show)

.)

 

I was also distracted by some of the things Bowen got wrong about Vermont's criminal justice system, which likely wouldn't bother anyone who doesn't work in the field. The silver lining, though, is that the morning after I finished the book, I emailed Sarina Bowen (which is not something I ever do; generally I prefer not to directly interact with authors) and offered myself as a contact should she ever have research questions (I've been a prosecutor for 14 years) or need a beta reader, and she wrote back immediately and was thrilled by my offer. So, that was kind of exciting.
