Originally published in the ALPHAS AFTER DARK box set.~~~
Three things make billionaire Jim Halcyon’s to-do list: women, work…and more women. It’s a perfect agenda for a rich shifter who has no problem letting his inner grizzly out to play. From the bright lights of Vegas, to the sophisticated action of New York—he’s got the money and the power to do anything he wants.
Anything, except resist the lure of Lady Luck, an ancient copper coin he gambles yearly to possess. Jim is determined to regain control of the pretty penny, and damn if he’ll let any bit of eye candy distract him from his goal. Not even the mesmerizing woman in the middle of the casino floor with the shimmering hair and enormous green eyes.
With a life-changing move ahead of her, Lillie’s finagled a temporary layover en route to her future. She’s got five days to soak in new experiences, and while Vegas is too big and shiny and loud for her shy bear self, she’s eager to do this up right. It’s the last chance she’s got to let her hair down.
Until his challenge begins, Jim is more than willing to oblige Lillie’s wish for a final fling. Only Lady Luck has some twists of fate planned for them both…
So I have never heard of this author, before I was given a opportunity to read this book. The first time I saw this cover, I knew I wanted to read this book. I will admit, that I do have a weakness for shifters, but BEARS?? Oh my, Oh my, I think I might be suffering from heat stroke here LOL. This story does have some focus on shifters, but there is more of a erotic twist to the story. So you see as you start reading that it is a short novella,and its focus is a much more sensual nature, but there is a charming love story attached as well. I found these characters quite endearing, and I just couldn’t get enough of them. There was so many fun scenes of playfulness and a charming quality to their quick bond that forms. I did feel however, that the love connection wasn’t as strong as I expected it to be. It felt like they meet,have delicious sex, and then fall in love, too quick for my taste, however I did feel charmed by the style of the story and it definitely won me over by the very end. I am very excited to read more from this author, I can see even from this short novella, that future books are definitely something to get excited about. Very impressed with the way this author tells a story of adventure, playful bear shifters, and enough humor to satisfy any witty heart. Adventure and sizzling sensuality all rolled into one!!
