The beginning of the book is quite sad as we see a young Emma attending her first mating gathering and learning just how neglected she had been by her mother when she has to rely upon the kindness of a male friend to explain her first mating experience. At first glance, it’s a bit heartwarming to see the young girl accepted by the males, to see her gain a little bit of confidence from their attentions. But when the evening ends in tragedy, my heart broke for Emma. When we fast forward three years to the present, my sadness over Emma’s existence continued as we find her living a solitary life that, despite her shyness, leaves her lonely and longing for contact with others. Despite the events that led to her solitude, it soon becomes clear that Emma’s core personality remains unchanged when she puts herself in the path of certain death to save the lives of human children. Even though she survives the hellhound’s attack, she does not do so unscathed and the state of her injuries have her nearing death’s door far sooner than she ever expected. But her life starts to look up when the cosantir and a cahir from the local pack catch her red handed and take her back to Cold Creek to heal. The cahir, Ben, is more than willing to house Emma while she heals because not only is Ben a bear shifter like Emma, but he too is lonely. As all of this is going on, Ben’s estranged brother Ryder has learned that he has a cub and, in his journey to Cold Creek to reconcile with Ben, he stops in to meet his four-year-old daughter, Minette. When Ryder discovers the neglect Minette has been subjected to, he does the unheard of and takes the child with him. It is Minette’s presence that helps to soothe the reunion between brothers because the child’s needs help to send Ben’s (well-earned) hurt feelings packing in order to provide for the cub’s safety. And thus the stage is set for a whole lot of healing that must occur before this trio can become a family fit for a cubling…and brownies.
If you’re a fan of Sinclair’s BDSM romances, don’t dive into this book expecting the same kind of action. However, if you’re a fan of her injured characters who heal through love, then you might want to give Eventide of the Bear a chance. Because all three of the main characters have suffered emotional injuries of one sort or the other, there is a lot that each must overcome before they embark upon a sexual relationship. Compounding that, Emma has serious physical injuries from the hellhound attack that must heal first. This gives the characters more than half the book to get to know one another, work their way past each other’s defenses and prejudices, and build the foundation necessary for a loving family unit. As expected, when the sexual encounters finally occur, they are as steamy as you would expect them to be from this author, whether they were between Ben and Emma, Emma and Ryder, or all three of them. But it is the family that the trio builds that really made the book a treat to read for me because neither Emma, Ben, nor Ryder ever expected to find the happiness they found with each other.
Two bears and a panther fight hellhounds, ex's, and their feelings for each other. Couple of hot sex scenes. I have been waiting for the next book in this series. Was not disappointed!
That style has carried over to her shifter's as well. Her books are equal to the other top notch authors out there. She plants you in a location that you can picture with emotions that you can feel. You are inside the characters brains as they go through their thought process and reason things out. You want to shout at them as they hold back and cheer as they give in to their emotions. She makes it real.
The story takes place up in the Cascades area. A small town with a whole lot of shifters blended in with the humans, most of whom are oblivious to who their neighbors are. It takes you through 4 years of Emma's life. The trials, tribulations and everything in between. I can't recommend this book enough!
When (frequently) shown, respect & responsibility of fellow shifters and their community is heartwarming. The Bard with her never-ending supply of nurture & love is both refreshing & healing.
Bad things sometimes happen to good "people" but it's so nice to see that good can come afterwards.
