Excerpt: Chapter 1
"A Montana town where no one is who they seem....
Everything about runaway heiress Ainsley McLeon screamed trouble - from her luscious midnight locks to her Louboutin-clad toes. Yet sexy, stoic bar owner Luc couldn't deny the instant connection he felt to the tempting stranger… or the long-dead feelings she evoked. She could work in his pub until her truck was fixed but after that she had to leave town for good.
Ainsley traveled with her own emotional baggage and there was no way she'd fall for the bear-tempered Luc... no matter how many passionate nights she spent in his bed or how safe she felt in his muscular arms. Can these two opposites find love in the middle of a blizzard, or will Luc's darker side and Ainsley's past catch up with them?" ~ From Goodreads
The blurb really draws you in, it's got everything you could want, werebears, an heiress, danger and fashion, doesn't get much better than that in my book! ;) I love the plot of Ainsley putting pedal to the metal to get out of LA to save her life, she's ingenious, she's smart and NOT an obnoxious bitch - I loved her mean streak and her ability to take care of herself.
And the grumpy bear, literally, Luc was the epitome of it, he was struggling through losing his family in a car accident and that had turned him quite the crouch, but with great big kind heart. He wanted to through Ainsley out on her ass with her designer jeans first until he saw the mess and bruises she was in then it it was protective instinct 101 and we know how that ends up in romances. ;)
Luc and Ainsley together were a blast, she didn't take no for an answer and he was running out of tricks to keep her at a distance. Of course this meant attraction, chemistry ( oh so good chemistry! ) and the mandatory kiss that just couldn't be stopped. This was a proper Romance, and I loved it! Luc and Ainsley ended up being seriously hot together and with Ainsley's death threats coming out to Luc's knowledge things went from hot to sizzling, got to love a sexy big muscled protective Care bear! Err, sorry, Werebear. ;)
Lions, Tigers, and Sexy Bears Oh My! was a prime example of entertaining, sexy and suspense filled were-romance! I couldn't get enough and I am desperate to read more Candace Havens novels in the future! Not only is she a top notch writer with magnetic characters but she writes some serious funny shit! My favorite? Ainsley's reaction to finding out Luc's a bear... I won't spoil it but involves a small dark space and shit load of brownies. ;)
