A PRINCE TRAPPED IN THE BODY OF A BEAR

Torben is a bear shifter struggling to pass a test laid on him by his power-hungry stepmother. Bound into his beast form during the day, able to be human only at night when the darkness hides him, he must find a wife. She can know him only as a bear and a bodiless voice in the night. For one year, she must let him keep his secrets, trust him as a wife should trust her husband. But what woman will climb into bed with a bear and trust it is a man waiting for her?

A BARD LOOKING FOR HER VOICE

After witnessing her mother's murder left her blind, Leta had to put away her sword and her dreams of becoming a bard. Now she is resigned to a calm life where the best she can hope for is a good marriage that will take the burden of her care from her father's shoulders. When her father claims the gods have sent a man to be not just her husband, but perhaps her savior, Leta has to take a leap of faith...and hope she falls in love.

Even a blind woman can see when something is worth fighting for...

3.25* This is the first book I've read from this author and I did enjoy it. I look forward to read more in the future. There are some very interesting characters and paranormal beings that intrigued me. Torben a bear shifter and the king of his people must pass a test to rid his family and kingdom of his stepmother Lilith who's a troll and her daughter Sylvi. Should he fail he's to marry Sylvi and be forever bound to there evil, if Lilith doesn't kill him. Torben is to find a wife but she can only see him as his bear and never as a human for a full year. Leta the bard has been blind since her mothers tragic death and being a burden to her father she excepted Torbens offer of marriage and the stipulations. But sensing Torben is hiding something from her she can't fully trust him and the evil magic she feels with in him my lead her to braking her promise. Torben wants nothing more then to protect Leta from his evil stepfamily he over looks how strong she is and that she may be the true answer to his dilemma or he may lose her forever. This book I think is the fourth book in the series. I would not consider it as a stand alone book. I did feel as if I was missing something while reading. I'm sure it was the world building in the first book so I need to go and start with the first book. *Book Obsessed Chicks Review team

A bear shifter desperate to keep his kingdom safe from his evil stepmother and stepsister. A bard rendered blind from the emotional trauma of seeing her mother murdered. A bargain that will ultimately change the course of all of their lives. In Bear With Me, Jennifer Blackstream continues the Blood Realm Series with another wonderful tale from her supernatural world. Torben was named king on his father's deathbed. He was a warrior, not a politician, and feels ill-equipped to handle the job, especially with his witchy (literally) step-mother and sister trying to wrest control from him. Torben agrees to a challenge to prove himself worthy to rule -- he must stay in his bear form by day and human by night, and get a women to fall in love with him when for a year she can only look upon him when he is a bear. Torben chooses Leta, an incredibly talented bard who he has observed in the past, now sruck blind due to extreme emotional trauma. While Torben is sure he can help Leta get her sight back, it helps that things start out with her unable to see him at all. Leta is deeply suspicious, however, and wavers in her trust for her new husband. If Torben fails this test he must marry his step-sister and be saddled with his step-mother forever. Will Leta get her sight back? If so will she last the full year without looking upon her husband's face? Well answering that would ruin the story, so you'll just have to read it yourself! Blackstream fills her stories with really interesting sub-characters who keep you guessing on what will happen next. Torben's brother Charles is a particularly compelling character and I hope he shows up again. I also loved the pirate who wants to own the heart of the step-sister. And of course we get an epilogue that brings back the Blood Princes, with some very keen observations from Torben. As is the case with all of Blackstream's works, she creates a vivid picture of a fantastical world of supernatural beings, power struggles, and epic romances. If that interests you st all should read this book!! An ARC was received with the request for an honest review.
