I fell in love with affable and loveable bear shifter Teddy Farnsworth. Unlike the majority of bears, Ted craves company even with winter hibernation coming on. Consequently, he’s been in deep do-do since playing what he thinks of as harmless pranks to get attention. Lately, he has let himself be caught mid-shift by a tabloid photographer who sells the picture as evidence of Big Foot. Not only is the yeti community incensed, but the bear shifter council isn’t pleased either.
To provide Ted with the companionship he needs, he’s ordered to register with Supernatural Selection and be matched with the perfect mate. What a great idea, right? And it seems to work out. Ted, the head of a construction company, is paired with a beaver shifter, someone else who knows about the building trade.
The glitch is what makes the book a delightful treat. Although Supernatural Selection is run by a coven who swear by their accuracy and acumen, when the contracts are printed up, Ted seems to be paired with an incubus, not the promised beaver!
Not only that, but Quentin Bertrand-Harrington, whom Ted at first mockingly calls Q-Bert, was supposed to be matched with a vampire, a being that Q-Bert couldn’t kill via sex. Ted on the other hand? Well, he and Q-Bert better not be attracted to one another, for a multitude of reasons, but the biggest one is that Q-Bert just might slay Ted if they consummate their relationship.
Needless to say, unexpected plot developments, high jinx, and laughs ensue. I haven’t had so much fun reading a book in quite a while. As the obstacles to their mating pile up, Ted and Q-Bert find more and more reasons to be together, ignore all the dire consequences, and end up falling in love. Disaster, right?
Well, since this is a romance—and a really enjoyable one at that—suffice it to say there is a happy ending. Whether it’s between Ted and Q-Bert or Ted and his beaver shifter or Q-Bert and his vampire is immaterial. It’s the getting to the perfect match and being completely entertained by the fun twists and turns that’s important.
Author Russell not only charmed me with this first book in the Supernatural Selections series, but she keeps up the surprises and delight throughout the rest of the books too. Readers looking for a few hours away from the daily grind will adore both Russell and the supernatural world she builds.
Ted carries an innocence in his heart and mind and loves and trusts people. Quentin is jaded and withdrawn from others, but is unafraid to stand up against anyone who is mistreating someone. Their lifestyles are opposite, but in the end, it does not matter. They play well off each other in their interactions.
I particularly like how the author made these characters so real — Ted with his spare tire and Quentin with his exceedingly small frame.
The secondary characters are interesting and supportive of the main characters and the storyline.
I smiled a lot as I read this. There is angst, but just enough to keep this from being too sweet. The pain and dismay suffered by Ted and Quentin made their HEA even more satisfying.
There is suspense, drama, humor, deceit, anger, and pain. Wrap that up in a lot of fun, some sexy times and a nicely drawn world inhabited by many different supernatural races and you have a book I could not put down.
I do, however, need to read the series before this one. The characters that came from that series look very interesting, and I want to know all about this exciting world this author has created.
I have a weakness for bear shifters and I love Ted! He's kind and friendly and he isn't like the other bear shifters who likes solitude. But Ted just want someone to see him and someone to keep him company and that's why he takes the route with a arranged marriage.
Quentin also wants a partner but he's afraid that his Incubus abilities will kill his potential love interest and thinks that arranging a marriage to a vampire is the way to go.
What neither of them expected was that meeting each other would change their plans and that the husband mix up might be the best thing.
find it's each other that they are married too. They believe that they have nothing in
common, but there is a ritual to do that correct that. . .besides, they were wrong
for each other any way. I liked this for the most part, but I was tired of a few people
in the book believing Ted is a screwup and I loved that Quentin was sticking up for him.
Adults 18+ only for sexual scenes. Worth a read.

The story was very interesting, the world setting quite good.
I fell in love with Ted and Quentin, both for different reasons. They are complete opposites, but they work so well together. I love how they interact with each other and try to make the best of a weird situation.
My heart broke for them, and what they thought was best. I loved the fact that despite everything, they always had each other's back. And I really enjoyed the special things they had to do, some of these moments were hilarious.
Overall a great book, that is very enjoyable, sweet and with a great happy ending.
I loved the series this book spins off from and great to see some familiar characters make an appearance.
