Book Description

To win a frightened heart, you have to bare your own.

Halle Shifters, Book 3

Any woman would be eager to be Ryan Williams’s mate. Any woman but Glory Walsh. The sexy bear shifter is beautiful, strong and persistent, she’ll give him that. But Glory’s past taught her one simple truth: people leave. She can’t get past the fact he left her once before. Okay, so he had a good reason, and he did come back. Try convincing her emotions.

When Glory finally agrees to a date, Ryan feels like shouting hallelujah. He only left his mate to hunt down the man who’d shot her, but convincing the stubborn woman she has a permanent place at his side is tougher than he thought.

Their date takes a turn for the bizarre when Glory thanks Ryan for the series of romantic gifts—gifts Ryan never sent. It seems her past is coming back to bite her, and before it has a chance to sink its teeth in and tear her out of his life, Ryan will have to bare it all, right down to his soul, to protect the woman he loves. Even from herself.

Warning: This title contains explicit sex, graphic language, a blue-haired heroine, and a hero who isn’t afraid to get all kinds of naked.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Series Keeps Growing... in a Good Way! February 17, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This series started as entertaining, but frivolous. Light entertainment, with good writing. However, with each book the author seems to develop and grow. Each story has more depth but maintains the bits of humor and frivolity that I expect and enjoy.

Based on the beginning of Glory and Ryan's story in a previous book, I wasn't sure if I would like Glory as a heroine. I thought she might be too much of a brat. However, this story does an excellent job of giving a background with valid reasons for her behavior.

Ryan is adorable, and a fantastic hero. He suits Glory. Not every guy would give his mate the time she needed.

My only complaints are minimal:
1. A couple things seemed to happen out of the blue. Not in an "oh, I didn't expect that" way... more like a "where did that/they/it come from??"
2. While I LOVE cameos from my series favorites, as the series progresses there are more and more to try to fit in. I would caution the fantastic author to not attempt to fit so many characters from previous stories in. It starts to get confusing, esp. as new characters - with future stories please :-) - are introduced. Am I the only one who has to try to keep Jim and Jaimie straight? The two J names are throwing me off!
3. Don't forget to toss in an occasional easy mate story, huh? Lately every mate set has had personal issues that have delayed the mating. I understand conflict is important for a good plot, but every once in a while it's nice to see a hero and heroine who WANT to mate.

Anyway, love the book. I've enjoyed the entire series, and I REALLY can't wait for the next one!

3.0 out of 5 stars Review Bear Naked March 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
~ 3.5 Bear Naked Stars ~

Quick & Fun read!

Bear Naked is book three in Halle Shifters series by Dana Marie Bell. I like the humor we find in each book, the smutty sexy parts, as well as the little plot that their is to keep us entertained. I really enjoy that the author can show us the friendship’s, family love and relationship’s in this book and the series.

Glory and Ryan’s relationship was developed and built through the previous two books in this series. In Bear Naked they finally are pushed together. Ryan is a super sweetie in this story, even though it’s taking it’s toll on him. Glory I’m not sure how she resists Ryan for so long. We do have some action/mystery with a mysterious shifter trying to kidnap Glory and Glory re-starting the search for her long lost sister. Since this is the third book in the series there are plenty of cameos of the previous pairs as well as others from Bell’s other related series. Dana Marie Bell also sets up at least three other pairs, moves things along for the next pair up and adds some new characters to the world.

If your new to the series, Dana Marie Bell does a good enough job recapping things that have come before, but I highly recommend reading in order. You will enjoy the series that much more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bear March 18, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love this world. This story was deep and involved. It cleared up some old questions but also brought in a bunch of new characters and possibilities.
The story moves quickly along and has the expected humor. Over all this is a nice little installment that makes you want to move along to the next book. Please let Chloe get her mate already.
Do not try to read this with out at least reading Bear Necessities and Cynful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Halle Shifters February 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the third of the Halle Shifters books, and I love me some sexy shifters! I love Ryan (our hero and bear shifter) but can see why Glory would be leery, especially since everyone has left her in her life (including Ryan). What Glory doesn't realize is that Ryan left merely to hunt down the man who shot her, but that stubborn, beautiful woman will be worn down if it's the last thing he does! Plot twist, though: Someone is sending weird romantic gifts … someone from Glory's past, bum bum bum!

What I love about the Halle Shifters series are the smexy heroes with the strong heroines. I mean, the couples Dana Marie pairs are adorable, and absolutely funny together. We've had a biker boy with an inked, green-haired girl, a spirit bear with a closeted geek, and the sexy persistent guy with our blue-haired stubborn girl. I don't believe the series is done, though, with this ending. I'd say we could definitely get more books. : )

Head over to the HEA Blog to read Dana Marie's favorite book couples and favorite shifter series!

Epic one-liner from Bear Naked …
"He adored the ground she walked on, whether she liked it or not."

5.0 out of 5 stars And this is why I love the Halle series February 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Dana Marie Bell knocks it out. I have been anticipating this book since Bear Necessities came out. Glory gets her family back minus the abusive father. We find out what really happened to her twin, Hope. Ryan and Glory are awesome together. That Glory gives Ryan so much trouble makes you laugh.

I can't wait to see what's in store for the Bunsun-Williams family (including adoptee Julian) and their mates.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bear Naked (Halle Shifters Book 3).....Awesome!!! October 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ryan and Glory.....Finally!!
Loved every minute of reading this and was not in any way disappointed.
Action,suspense, drama, twists and turns (Jim, Hope I did not see that coming), spicy hot love scenes, tears (for me yes I cry *wink*),
laughter and romance.
I loved seeing the whole gang and Glory's family reunion....priceless.
So looking forward to Jim and Chloe's story and I hope we won't have to wait to much longer.

More About the Author

Dana Marie Bell wrote her first short story when she was thirteen years old. She attended the High School for Creative and Performing Arts for creative writing, where freedom of expression was the order of the day. When her parents moved out of the city and placed her in a Catholic high school for her senior year she tried desperately to get away, but the nuns held fast, and she graduated with honors despite herself. She's now a best selling author with Samhain Publishing and Carina Press.

Dana has lived primarily in the Northeast with a brief stint on the US Virgin Island of St. Croix. She lives with her soul-mate and husband Dusty, their two maniacal children, an evil ice-cream stealing cat and a bull terrier that thinks it's a Pekinese. She's been heard to describe herself as "vertically challenged" and "a lapsed brunette." Dana also suffers from arthritis and can be seen walking with a cane or tooling around in her mobility scooter. Her condition was the inspiration for Belle's hip injury in Steel Beauty.
