This was a short story that sets up the rest of the series. The author bring a very interesting plot which goes back many years from the day Derek parents were killed could it have been an accident as they believed or could it have been more. The store moves around Derek and Clarice meeting with a strong pull from the start. There is a little misunderstanding or maybe confusion that the two will have to overcome before even thinking about a relationship plus she must find out what he truly is, understand it and expect it. There is danger near which will come to play in the future books in this series. It was an interesting plot that held your attention with a little mystery.
Scottish Werebears: A Dangerous Business
This was a cute read with danger, a little mystery, love story that is a little different but blends very well. The characters were interesting with cross breeding and how they deal with it. We learn more about Aidan and what happened to his parents. Here is where The Sons of Domnall, come into the story they are a secret society of humans sworn to destroy all shapeshifters.
Heidi is a very sweet wonderful character that won’t back down from a fight. When she and Aidan first me sparks fly. The pull is strong but neither is willing to give an inch. Both are very surprised to find they are not the same kind of shifter. This is a nice romance but pretty clean and very sexy. I enjoyed it.
We meet Jamie he is the star in the next book. We learn a little about him with is a great starting to the next book in the series. It is a short sweet read the author does a wonderful job of keeping your attention with a very good story line. The ending was good and leads right into the next book in this series.
Scottish Werebears: A Forbidden Love
This part of the series fills in a few blanks from Jamie past with a lead to his long lost family member. Things come to a head with The Sons of Domnall and Alliance as they go head to head bring back one of their own. Way more is lost then lives leave family torn in to. Alison is about to get some home truths that won’t settle to well with a few and leaves her life up in the air pulled in to different direction she is going to have to make some very tough decisions. In this book you find out what Jamie is hiding from his fellow Alliance’s. He has had some trying times which leave him with many sleepless nights. He Knows Alison is hiding something as well as who she really is but it seem he is hiding something as well.
I enjoyed getting to know past characters better and seeing how things were going for them. Alison and Jamie’s story is very touching and at the same time heartbreaking. I am looking forward to the next book in this series to find out just how Mattie turned out. Even though so much as been gained so much has been lost. So many people pulling on wives tales no one knowing just what the truth is makes you wonder just what The Sons of Domnall is basing their information on.
This was another very fast listen with some great story lines and plot. The characters you can relate to with a believable story line. There is a little mystery and a little action as the two groups go head to head more than once making you hold your breath wondering who will end up on top if any of them will. The ending is very touching but at the same time very heartbreaking.
Mr. Blackthorne’s narration was very good with interesting character voices that blends well with the story. His male voices are just as good as his female’s one. You always know who is talking and what their emotions are. There was one place that I could tell the volume changed just enough that you could tell if you were listening. I am guessing this is when a break was taken. Other than that the volume was very even throughout the audio. There are no background noises this is a very clear and clean audio. Mr. Blackthorne has a very nice voice his normal voice is just as great as his characters ones. I have to say for a man he does a very lovely female voice. His voice did pull me in making me feel comfortable and right at home. I had no trouble picturing when Clarice first sees the bear and feeling her emotions. The author does an outstanding job with the passionate scenes really giving the first night of love true emotions. I haven’t had the pleasure of listening to his work but to look forward to listening to more of it.
For a short story the author put a lot in a little. There are not many fillers with each word having a place in the story giving it a very believable plot with wonderful characters. I love the mystery and how she deliverers the back ground and the history of the werebears. There were some very intense passionate scenes that could give you hot flashes. However I did think a few sexual words did take away from the story in book one which put it a little on the erotica side the other books are not like that but very enjoyable with passionate and lots of chemistry. The author does a wonderful job of keeping your attention with a very good story line. The ending was good and leads right into the next book in this series.
Box set includes:
AN UNEXPECTED AFFAIR -
Third person POV. Poor Derek, he's a bit clueless in what to do with himself in the beginning, but is such a softy sweetheart behind the gruff front he puts up. Clarice is a bit fanciful, but enjoyable. Both characters were absolutely wonderful. There really was not a lot in the way of secondary characters, allowing the main focus to remain on the lead couple. The chemistry, while progressing at a steadily aggressive rate, was something both denied until they just could not anymore, a refreshing change to other similar stories. Dialogue felt natural and appropriate. The plot was full and complete, for being a novella of this short length and it was written extremely well - so smooth and fluid. There really were not a lot of conflicts other than internal struggles, but they managed in efficient and mature ways. No predictability. The conclusion allows Derek and Clarice their HEA, but there's a nice big opening for A DANGEROUS BUSINESS to pick it right up at the end. Although not a *huge* fan of paranormal, I honestly would love to read the next book in this saga to see if my suspicions are correct. Thank you, Ms. Moone, for the opportunity to read your work.
Rating: R / Score: 4.3 / Stars: 4
A DANGEROUS BUSINESS -
Third person POV. Novella > under 100 pages. Can stand alone, but it would be better to read in order.
It's been 15 years since his parents died and Aiden is still searching for the answers that tie their death to the Sons of Domnall, now as a member of the Alliance. The Rannock Alpha has sent Heidi, his own daughter, to be the wolf representative for the Alliance, to watch and insure balance for all shifter species. Neither Aiden nor Heidi ever expected to find their mate in their Alliance partner. Both lead characters are strong and mostly smart. The secondary characters include Derek and Clarice (book 1) as well as a few new ones. The chemistry is instantaneous, although they both try to avoid it at first. Dialogue is very good, so it character interaction. The plot felt more like a serial episode that a complete story. There are many loose ends and open possibilities in every direction. Flow is very smooth and easy to read. The conflict is not easy to ignore, but somehow it is avoided as a non-issue. HEA is implied, but never seen through yet. Already, ADB is leading the reader into AFL. This one just did not feel as complete as AUA, and the serial aspect to the ending is much more pronounced in this one, leading to some disappointment. I'd recommend this series to those love smart and well thought out shifters, BUT I'd suggest you wait until the series is released in it's entirety to read as one full-length novel instead of several micro-novellas.
Rating: PG-13 / Score: 3.8 / Stars: 4
A FORBIDDEN LOVE -
Third-person POV narrative. Jamie is a werebear and the Alliance leader in Edinburgh. Alison is the human "informant". Both have secrets. Secondary characters consist mostly of those we've met or have been told about in the previous two novellas.
The lead characters are only just strong enough to carry the novella. I'm not sure what it is about this installment of the "series", but it fell a bit flat for me. As with this series, the chemistry is magnetic and attraction is immediate. Maybe because a chunk of the plot was already preset in the last book? Maybe because we know almost all of the characters? I'm not sure. The secondary cast was supportive and provided crucial gap-fillers. The plot felt flat; without the dimension and dynamics one would hope for in a longer story, but it *is* a quick read and provided enough content to make it through. The first third of the book lagged, but the pace eventually picked up and finally provided a smooth ride. There were some conflicts, but there's really no going against the mating bond, so in actuality, the conflicts are rendered moot. A minor secondary story line is cast out and resolved within the primary story, also giving indication that it'll be the next book in the series. Predictability was moderate. The conclusion is passable. While giving Jamie and Alison their assumed happily ever after, we are left with many openings: Matty's reunion, the prisoners swearing vengeance upon both Alison and the Alliance, the Alliance's threat to the recent odd matings. Though this was not my favorite volume of the ongoing saga, I do look forward to learning more about Matty and what he's been up to in Glasgow. Overall, I think I'd only recommend this series to others once all volumes or installments are out. Ms. Moone states that it can be read as a stand-alone, but I truly feel that you'd lose a lot of the comprehension of the ongoing story if you picked it up half-way through.
Rating: PG-13+ / Score: 3.9 / Stars: 4
Overall - Not a bad series, thoughtful shifter process. Humor and adventure. Novellas are quick paced and not very complex. Character types are varied. Predictability is passable. I'd suggest reading the "series" as a whole rather than trying to read them as individual stories.
Overall rating: PG-13+ / Score: 4.0 / Stars: 4
