Synopsis: 3 for the price of 2: For the first time ever, a handy collection of the first three novellas in the Scottish Werebears series.
Titles include: An Unexpected Affair, A Dangerous Business and A Forbidden Love.
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?

I found this to be an enjoyable story. As with most paranormal stories, the attraction was immediate but in this case, Clarice and Derek feel that attraction but they also avoid each other (for different reasons). Since I got both POVs, I knew what the other didn’t know, so I enjoyed the avoidance immensely. Especially when Derek kept dropping off food and goodies for Clarice and she thought it was his “wife”.
Even though I enjoyed the avoidance, I kept wondering how and when Derek and Clarice would finally get together. One of the things that I think helped develop their connection was that they were able to sense each other and later each other’s thoughts. I loved that Derek knew when Clarice was in an accident and rode to the rescue.
This book didn’t work as well for me as the first one. I don’t know if it’s because Aiden and I didn’t click, or because I didn’t click with Heidi or if it was because I didn’t feel the connection between Aiden and Heidi…maybe all of the above?
I enjoyed the suspense part of the story, but felt like the beginning dragged a little for me. But at the same time, I wish there had been more time together for Aiden and Heidi. Even though Derek and Clarice didn’t spend a lot of time together, they were in close proximity so that their bond grew when they weren’t looking, leading to more of a connection between them…that was absent here for Aiden and Heidi. There should have been more time working together before he had to leave and the suspense aspect kicked in, or it should have had more before he had to leave to run his errand.
It was still good, but not great.
