I love the Shifter's Unbound series so I woke up early this morning to download and read this novella. Other than stopping to refill my coffee I could not put it aside. I've been looking forward to Ronan's story and Bodyguard was everything I wanted and more.

Ronan is a Kodiak bear Shifter and foster dad to a house full of bear cubs. He spent the majority of his life alone and though he has the respect and friendship of his fellow Shifters, he's never known love. Due to the small amount of female Shifters, Ronan feels he will never have a mate.

Elizabeth is a human novelty shop owner with a past she'd love to forget. All she wants is to run her shop in peace and protect her little sister. One night while at the store a thug comes in and robs her. Ronan was in the store and rescued her. Due to Shifter Law, Ronan is arrested and surprised that Elizabeth would defend him. He is drawn to her and knows that with the robber being a gang member Elizabeth will not be safe until he's taken care of. He decides to become Elizabeth's bodyguard.

There were so many things I loved about this novella. The chemistry between Ronan and Elizabeth was great. Though a huge Kodiak bear, Ronan is gentle, sweet and kind; I couldn't get enough of him. I really liked Elizabeth and her very open-minded little sister. Getting to meet Liam and Kim's little bundle of joy was great and it was nice to see how things progressed for Sean and Andrea. Thing I loved most? Spike. I was thrilled to get more of him. He is by far my favorite of the Shifters and it was cool to get a little more insight into his life and personality. I'm really curious to see what Jennifer Ashley has planned for him.

If you are a fan of the Shifters Unbound series you will love Ronan's story. Can't wait for the release of book three, Wildcat, in January.

Kodiak bearshifter Ronan is in the right place at the right time to save Elizabeth, one of the few store owners who will serve shifters, during an armed robbery attempt by a punk who planned on killing Elizabeth when he was done. But when it turns out that the punk is the younger brother to the leader of the newest gang in town, Ronan's protective instincts go into overdrive and Ronan decides that Elizabeth needs a fulltime bodyguard - him - and brings her to the safety of his Shiftertown home and adds her to the collection of fosterlings living under his roof.

Elizabeth soon finds herself under the protection of the entire shifter population and even though she's is independent and used to taking care of herself, and has major trust issues, Elizabeth can tell that Ronan is one of the 'good guys' and seven feet of protective shifter male is pretty hard to resist.

What a nice surprise to find this Shifters Unbound connected short, I actually really like this series and it was fun to see the past leads in supporting roles, but I really loved bearshifter Ronan, he was a real honey, big and protective, but still respectful of Elizabeth's independence. For those who haven't discovered Ashley's series yet, this short gives a good feel for the Shifters Unbound universe, along with a little teaser for the next novel, Wild Cat (Shifters Unbound, Book 3) coming Jan of 2012.

I'm not sure why Ashley's shifter series isn't more popular. I find the books interesting and attention holding. This was a shorter book than others in the series, but just as good. The story building and plot was great and had enough romance and suspense to satisfy me. I hope more people become aware of Ashley's series.

This series is a wonderful one. I love each and every one and am sad when I finish each book. Jennifer Ashley rocks and her characters are complex, sexy and fun!

Elizabeth Chapman is a human shop owner just working day by day and trying to keep her and her sister safe from mistakes in her past. All was going according to plan until the night her shop was robbed at gunpoint and she was rescued in a very unexpected way.

Ronan, a Kodiak bear shifter, is careful to obey the rules about shifter and human interactions. Until the night he is shopping and saves the life of the shop owner. That night Ronan's life shifts in a way that will change him forever.

Elizabeth is more than grateful when Ronan shifts and saves her life and is then stunned when he is arrested and charged for attacking a human. Elizabeth doesn't care that she is trying to keep a low profile; she knows that she can't allow Ronan to suffer for risking his safety to help her. That night brings Elizabeth and Ronan together for the first time. It also sets them on a journey that will put not only them, but also their loved ones in danger. What appears to be a simple armed robbery turns into a hunt to root out a type of danger that could harm the shifters and their loved ones.

Take one Kodiak bear shifter and match him up with a tough and sexy human woman, mix in passion and suspense and you have Bodyguard. Elizabeth had a checkered past, but she had started over in hopes having a good life for her and her sister. Ronan is a large shifter with a warm heart of gold, but he isn't afraid of a bit of violence to protect those he loves. I loved how Elizabeth fought for Ronan and then how they fought for the passion they found together. Watching as the shifters proved who really controlled their land and how they ruled it was eye opening. It also told me a lot about where this series might be heading.
