Some men just have more to offer. Like hard-muscled, shape-shifting Bo Novikov--part polar bear, part lion, pure alpha. . .

Ten years after Blayne Thorpe first encountered Bo Novikov, she still can't get the smooth-talking shifter out of her head. Now he's shadowing her in New York--all seven-plus feet of him--determined to protect her from stalkers who want to use her in shifter dogfights. Even if he has to drag her off to an isolated Maine town where the only neighbors are other bears almost as crazy as he is. . .

Let sleeping dogs lie. Bo knows it's good advice, but he can't leave Blayne be. Blame it on her sweet sexiness--or his hunch that there's more to this little wolfdog than meets the eye. Blayne has depths he hasn't yet begun to fathom--much as he'd like to. She may insist Bo's nothing but a pain in her delectable behind, but polar bears have patience in spades. Soon she'll realize how good they can be together. And when she does, animal instinct tells him it'll be worth the wait. . .

"Non-stop laughter, snark, and witty banter." –SmexyBooks

This time out, I have the latest from Shelly Laurenston, Beast Behaving Badly (Brava, received from publisher), with her latest shapeshifter, half-polar bear, half-lion Bo Novikov romancing Blayne Thorpe, half-wolf, half-wild dog, even though he's frightened her nearly to death for ten years.

Dark Faerie Tales

Enjoy the book, but I would recommend starting with book 1 to ensure that you enjoy the entire ride with Bo and Blayne.

Literary Escapism

You don’t have that in Beast Behaving Badly, so I was never afraid of the bad guy or thought he/they could pull off his plan.
