Celebrate the release of Pursuing the Bear! (Review + Giveaway)

The Shifter Wars heat up when a woman investigates the mysteries surrounding a fierce breed of man and exposes more than just secrets.

Bear shifters exist. Professor Bria Lane has known this since she was a child. Now she's returned to the forests of Deep Creek to prove it to the world. She has no idea how close she is to that proof in ruggedly sexy park ranger Derek Poole. Intimately close. But uncovering Derek's wild side comes with a shattering price.

Like a magnet meeting metal, Derek is drawn to Bria. His destiny. His mate. So beautiful and so vulnerable. So dangerous, too: an encroachment of lions, vengeful and vicious, is closing in and they're ready for war. Now is not the time to be distracted like a lovesick cub.

If Bria reveals the truth of the Deep Creek shifters to the world, she'll bring out the worst of both sides. But Derek can't hide his secrets from the love of his life forever. He knows they're playing with fire—and that when passion runs this hot, this reckless, someone's bound to get burned.

Kerry Adrienne surely delivers on the Carina Press Romance Promise! Pursuing the Bear, book two in the Shifter Wars series focuses on the sizzling connection between ursinologist Bria Lane and bear shifter Derek Poole.

Bria is in Deep Creek National Park to find bears. Not just ordinary bears, but humans that shift into bears. Her first day in the park she meets Derek, park ranger and bear shifter. When he learns what Bria is searching for he decides to help her, if only to keep her from exposing the truth of shifters to the world. Avoiding exposure isn't his only concern though. The shifter lions in the area are gunning for the sacred Cave of Whispers and war is imminent. The bears have to be on their guard to protect their pack and the cave. If you haven't already read the first book in the series, don't worry. Pursuing the Bear fills you in on the main story arc as it becomes relevant.

The dialogue is a little repetitive and sometimes comes across very plainly, but it doesn't detract from the connection between Bria and Derek. Their relationship becomes hot and heavy but manages to remain a sweet romance. Pursuing the Bear's plot is driven by the romance. I would have like to read more detail about Bria's relationship with her parents or her relationship with her ex, just to understand her pain a little more. Bria thinks about them throughout the novel, but we don't really get clear examples of how they interacted with each other. Nevertheless, Bria and Derek are the next hot couple.

Kerry Adrienne didn't just write this story to give readers a fun romance to escape into. She boosts it with a little action and even drops a few clues about the next story. You will not want to miss jumping back into the Shifter Wars series with Taming the Lion!
