Title: Waking the Bear
Waking the Bear by Kerry Adrienne will be available August 2016 from Carina Press.
Sexy shifter passion is awakened when two unlikely lovers are challenged by secrets, danger and an unstoppable need to claim one's mate…
For human Amy Francis, the secluded cabin in Deep Creek is the haven she needs to map out a fresh new start. She never expected her heart to be reawakened by a distraction like Griff Martin, commanding yet gentle, too ferociously sensual to ignore. It's clear that patrolling the forest is more than a job to Griff—it's a means of survival. But what Amy doesn't realize is she's reawakened the beast within him.
Griff's dormant hunger is stirred by this intoxicating woman…and threatened by the secret she must never learn. Duty-bound to defend his bear clan against an avenging pride of lion shifters, Griff's entire world is upended when he meets Amy. His animal need to claim his mate has taken hold, but that very desire could seal her fate as an unwitting pawn in battle.
Now, as a shifter war looms, Griff must decide between letting Amy go or following his most carnal instincts. To have her would change his life…but risk everything he knows and was born to protect.

Amy decides she needs to get away. She’s just lost her job and her boyfriend-but she’s not really upset. She hated the job and her boyfriend was an idiot anyway. She decides a couple of months of time away from other people in the mountains sounds heavenly. She rents a cabin from Griff. Upon meeting him, she’s attracted to him. That is just not what she needed coming there.
Griff is a bear shifter and has just woke up from hibernation. When Griff meets Amy, he knows instantly she’s his mate. He doesn’t plan on pursuing her as he has more pressing problems on his plate-most notably the mountain lions. They have been plotting war while the bears were hibernating. He doesn’t need her getting in the way. He can always go back to claim her after the issues have been cleared up. But his “bear” finds it extremely difficult to stay away. He wants to claim her NOW!
This was a super quick read! Everything was zipping by at record speed! Amy does need help and of course Griff is there to protect her. As things heat up, they both realize they need each other in ways they can’t explain. Their bond strengthens and they both know there is no going back.
Waking the Bear is the first book in Kerry Adrienne’s Shifter Wars series and it’s a great start! This leaves us satisfied with Amy and Griff’s story but we are intrigued to find out what is going to happen with the rest of Griff’s den. I’m sure the next books will be just as good!
