She believes in myths . . . can she believe in destiny?

Unlike her adventurous sister, Ruby is perfectly content to let her mind be the wanderlust while her body stays safely in Chicago. Melanie wouldn't be out of touch this long without a damned good reason, though. Which means it's time for a giant step outside her comfort zone.

While Denali National Park is like another planet, the myths and legends that saturate this wild land are right up her alley. The wilderness guide waiting for her-naked in her bed-looks about as safe as a polar bear.

Carson's people are kin to the great beast, right down to the white hair. Before Ruby ever set foot in Alaska, his inner bear knew that Melanie's little sister was his mate. He's doing his level best not to let his primal needs scare her, but everything about her sends his urge to possess her into overdrive.

To his surprise, revealing he's a shifter only stimulates her innate curiosity. Warming her with the perfect fire of their lovemaking, easy. Convincing her that real love isn't a myth-and making her want to stay in his home, his bed, his heart-now, that's a problem . . .

Warning: cozy flannel PJs, a naked shifter, incredible food and some fireside sex hot enough to melt the polar ice caps



Dee's Thoughts:

Ruby is headed to Mount McKinley in search of her missing sister. Upon arriving she informs the desk clerk she is in need of a guide and the clerk promises Carson will be available in the morning. Ruby never dreamed that Carson would be available, naked beside her, in her bed the next morning, but he was.

Carson had no patience left, he had been waiting far to long for Ruby to arrive. Knowing she was his and that she was never getting away from him, he didn’t see the problem in slipping into bed with a sleeping Ruby.

Ruby thinks a hot tryst with Carson is no biggie. Carson on the other hand is a bear shifter and once the deed is done, she is his, permanently. This is where it gets interesting.

A HOT novel by Matthews. The only thing I found slightly irritating was Ruby. She asked questions non stop and fell into bed with Carson to easily. Yes, for some reason Ruby being easy just didn’t work for me in this Matthews novel. But still an awesome, steamy read.

Favorite Quotes:

“He’d convince her, coax her, seduce her, whatever it took. He needed her, in ways he didn’t even know of yet, but the immediate need was her; her body, her sex.”

“I’m not the person that just accepts a stranger being in bed with me when I clearly remember going to sleep alone.” “I understand that. Would it help if I told you you’re my woman and in bed together is where we’re supposed to be?”
