Up-and-coming supermodel Hailey Crewe can’t wait to escape the limelight and return to the modest, anonymous lifestyle she once led. Escaping literally? That was never part of her plan. But when an unwanted suitor — and her scheming mother/manager — go a step too far with a surprise Hawaii wedding, Hailey becomes a bride on the run. Before she knows it, she’s not only being hunted by a greedy oil tycoon, but by his creepy security force, too. A good thing she bumps into her very own Lancelot at exactly the right time.

Bear shifter Timber Hoving is just another Special Forces vet slowly adjusting to island time. That is, until an irresistible stranger rushes into his meticulously organized world. Before Tim knows it, his human side is wrestling with temptation, and his bear is head-over-heels in love. But Hailey’s first encounter with shifters is a terrifying one, and Tim can’t reveal the truth about himself without losing her forever. Worse, sinister shifter forces are closing in, following a ruthless agenda of their own. They’ll stop at nothing to capture Tim’s destined mate — dead or alive.

Rebel Bear is a fast-paced, emotion-packed paranormal romance filled with yearning, sizzling passions, and forbidden love. Ready to be swept off to sunny Maui’s suspense-filled shifter side? Get your copy today!

Rebel Bear is book two in the Aloha Shifters: Pearls of Desireseries by Anna Lowe. It can be read as a stand-alone.

I was pulled in from start to finish. It will make you laugh, shed some tears, and give you that feel good feeling inside. I adored this story in the Aloha Shifters. It’s fast-paced, emotional, hilarious, and passionate. You can’t help but be drawn into one of Anna Lowe’s books with her descriptions, beautiful story telling, and emotional moments.

The way Rebel Bear starts pulls you in and has you feeling for our heroine, Hailey. WOW what a mother and what a selfish ex-boyfriend or so he would be if he listened. I was prod of Hailey for learning to stand tall and stand up for herself. Her situation isn’t an easy one especially with shifters chasing her and a mother who’s a control freak to the max. Then we have Timber our lovable bear. He is so adorable, irresistible, and set on protecting his fated mate, Hailey.

The cast of characters featured in Rebel Bear are wonderful and easy to fall for and of course we are entertained with life-threading danger, suspense, humor, action and sizzling romance. The relationship between Timber and Hailey was one of sweet bliss and passionate love.

Rebel Bear hit all the right spots and I can’t wait for the next installment. I highly recommend any of Ms. Lowe’s books.

Rated: 4.5 Stars

  1. I love it when more than one emotion is touched when I read a story. The setting and the bear shifter part would pull me in, too. 🙂
