Sexy shifter passion is awakened when two unlikely lovers are challenged by secrets, danger and an unstoppable need to claim one’s mate.For human Amy Francis, the secluded cabin in Deep Creek is the haven she needs to map out a fresh new start. She never expected her heart to be reawakened by a distraction like Griff Martin, commanding yet gentle, too feriociously sensual to ignore. It’s clear that patrolling the forest is more than a job to Griff—it’s a means of survival. But what Amy doesn’t realize is she’s reawakened the beast within him.Griff’s dormant hunger is stirred by this intoxicating woman—and threatened by the secret she must never learn. Duty bound to defend his bear clan against an avenging pride of lion shifters, Griff’s entire world is upended when he meets Amy. His animal need to claim his mate has taken hold, but that very desire could seal her fate as an unwitting pawn in battle.Now, as a shifter war looms, Griff must decide between letting Amy go or following his most carnal instincts. To have her would change his life—but would risk everything he knows and was born to protect.

My Review of "Waking the Bear": I was introduced to shifter romances a few years ago. What started as off as a love of wolf shifters expanded to cats and dragons and later still bears. When asked to review Kerry Adrienne's "Waking the Bear" I had only read one bear shifter which was part of a series about numerous shifter forms and it was so-so. I was not sure how this one would suit me. After I began I was tickled by its humor and laid back feel. I did not want to put it down and was sorry to see it end. "Waking the Bear" was a fast paced story with strong characters that captured my attention and kept me glued to the pages. I had never read of an out and out war between shifter communities and was intrigued by the idea. Although there is trouble brewing the full out war does not come in this book, but it does heat up and we learn of the members of the den. I look forward to reading their stories in future books. My rating for "Waking the Bear is 4.5 out of 5 stars. I do not believe this book is suitable for readers under the age of 18.

Book one of the Shifter Wars series Previously published, newly revised by author This book is approximately 75,000 words My Thoughts Having come to the mountains to escape a soured relationship and being let go from her job in Atlanta Amy Francis is looking forward to some peaceful relaxation to recharge and regroup. What she gets is anything but her idea of a relaxing vacation when she not only becomes involved with her sexy landlord but becomes the target of his sworn enemy as well. Bear shifter Griff Martin is an uber alpha male whose inner sweetness shines through his overwhelming physical presence. Blindsided when he meets Amy for the first time and senses that she is his fated mate he is torn between rejoicing his good fortune or never claiming her to keep her safe from his enemies. The million dollar question is whether the human female can accept a man who shifts into a bear and if so what will the pair face in the future as the different groups of shifters find themselves closer to war with each other than they have ever been in the past. Finding out the answer along with Amy and Griff himself is not only worth the readers time but also takes one on a roller coaster ride of mystical lore mixed in with some pretty spectacular action scenes with some short romantic interludes for the couple along the way as well. Revised and republished version of the book, not having read the original there is no comparison. For me, as the author herself is also new to me, find that this is an excellent intro to her work and quite a nice start to what turned out to be a decent beginning to the series.
