Publisher's Summary

To save the woman he loves, he must push his gifts to the brink.

Julian DuCharme, a rare Spirit Bear with legendary healing powers, is finally free from the threat of death, finally free to claim his mate - but she's not having it. While his Bear screams it's time to mate, the love of his life wants to date.

Holding his Bear in check while convincing her he's not out to control her won't be easy. She's stubborn and a closeted geek - in other words, perfect for him.

Cynthia "Cyn" Reyes, owner of Living Art Tattoos, thinks Julian is the hottest thing on two legs. That doesn't mean she's going to roll over for his masculine charm. She watched her mother flounder when her father passed away, and she's determined to never lose herself to someone else. Not even a man who would jump the moon for her if she asked that of him.

When the women of Living Art are targeted by a killer, Julian doesn't think twice about pouring out his last drop of power to keep Cyn safe. But it's Cyn who'll give up everything - her independence, even her humanity - to keep a terrifying vision from coming true.

One of his death.

Warning: This novel contains explicit sex, graphic language, a tattooed heroine and the Bear who loves her. Maybe he'll finally convince her to tattoo him with "Property of Cyn".

Nice but predictable

I was looking for a read that was exciting but without too complicated a plot. This book was perfect because I was already knowledgeable about the characters as this was the second book I read in the series. While I can't say that I loved the book it fulfilled it's purpose of being an uncomplicated read. The only drawback was that it's little mystery was quite predictable in spite of all the attempts to create drama.

Really good listening to these

Really good listening to these but it brings home how much this series is left open ended due to not being added to. Mainly in regards to the riddle/prophesy that is a big part of this series. BOOK REVIEW 3.5 stars just because Glory brings it down big time even though it is Cyn and Julians story. Love superbear and how he goes out of his way to help everyone no matter how dangerous to himself. Whilst I like Cyn her dithering hot and cold bothered me. She knows about shifters and how they are absolutely loyal to their true mate but still gives Julian attitude. Also Cyn and Julian were going along slowly and suddenly mates. The ending is so abrupt. Little things just add up to big problems. Glory acts like super bitch to Ryan. WHY? I am not sure anything Ms bell writes will exonerate her behaviour. A bit disappointing after such a great first book but I did like being back in Halle though and there are so many stories needing to be told. Jamie who has lost his mate, poor Chloe, whose human mate doesn’t want her and Heather whose shifter mate won’t claim her.
