His to Protect is a full length stand alone bear shifter novel and the first in the Grizzly Ridge Series. No Cliffhangers! This series contains: strong, sassy, curvy women; sexy alpha males; steamy shifters and sizzling sex scenes. 

When Harper Bentley’s life begins a death spiral, she does what any self respecting woman would do—she heads for the mountains. More specifically, Grizzly Ridge. A brand new—and very remote—lodge in the wilds of Montana. The last thing she expects to find there is deliciously sexy Axel Jackson, who is more than a little wild himself and reigniting feelings she’d long since buried. 

From the moment he lays eyes on her, alpha bear shifter, Axel knows Harper is more than just a guest at his lodge. Much more. She’s his mate. And whether his brothers believe in fated mates or not, nothing will keep Axel from what is his. But first he’ll need to convince Harper that what she’s feeling is more than lust. It’s fate.



His to Protect is a short hot steamy shifter romance. It wasn’t a wow knock your socks of book, but it was agreeable.

It had some funny moments and hot and steamy moments. I had a nice time getting to know the Jackson brothers that have started this new business. Harper and Nina were enjoyable. I was bit frustrated with Harper and her situation with her ex. She really should have left him once she knew. Axel was a deliciously sexy shifter, who helped Harper find out who she is. It was a sweet romance.

I did wonder if their is a series before this one. It felt like Bears of Grizzly Ridge series was a spin-off. Other then that I enjoyed this quick seductive romance.

Rated: 3 Stars

  1. This looks a fun book. You know how much I love bear shifters (or well, pretty much any shifter LOL). I’ll have to add this to my list. 🙂
