The Witness and the Bear (Bear Valley Shifters, #1) by T.S. Joyce

Hannah Michaels is on the run, and the protection detail assigned to her case have her wondering who, or what, she’s trusting her life with. After testifying against a criminal with a long reach, her days are numbered if her handler, Jeremy, can’t find a safe place for her. Out of options and with nowhere to go, she’s dropped off in the Big Horn Mountains of Montana with a duffle bag of her belongings and little explanation. 

Jeremy swears she’ll be safe in this wilderness sanctuary, but when she meets Benson Riker, leader of the bear shifter clan of Big Horn Valley, she doesn’t feel safe at all. In fact, the man is just about as feral as they come. 

In a bout of epically bad timing, she accidentally vies to be mated to the alpha, and no matter how much she tries to escape the competition for Riker’s affection, he is having none of it. He cites upholding clan law as his reasons for wanting her to stay, but the hungry look in his eyes says it’s more personal than that. 

Weathering deep secrets and danger from all sides, she’ll have to decide if Riker is the shifter who deserves her heart. 

A Hot Bear Shifter Romance. 

My review:

I love shifter romance.  I’ll admit I bought this because of the cover.  Shallow I know.  I’d not read anything by this author before and am always on the lookout for something new.  The Witness and the Bear was an interesting read.  There were some really harrowing moments, some truly hot love scenes and a couple scenes that just made me want to toss my kindle.  All in all a good read and I will be checking out the next installment.
