"a steamy adult fairy tale"

This is the story of Gillian, a woman who finds love in a very strange and fairy tale kind of way, when she stumbles upon a cabin in the woods that is owned by three brothers who happen to be bear shifters and is found sleeping in one of their beds.

I really enjoyed this steamy shifter romance. Celia Kyle does well in drawing her readers into the life of Gillian Locke and the Bearclaw Brothers; Ronan, Connor and Max. As well as keeping everyone in suspense as to whether Gillian's abuser will find her and if he does what he will do to her and possibly the brothers. The brothers show Gillian just how a woman who makes them whole should be treated while keeping in mind that she was abused by another man. Each brother has his own special way of bringing Gillian around to trusting them and combined they show her all the love a woman could ask for and more, even if Gillian is confused at first about her feelings for all three brothers. I highly recommend this for readers that enjoy a good book featuring shifters and group involvement.

Gillian Locke has been beaten, battered, and bruised, but her ex-boyfriend still hasn’t managed to break her. When she left Kyle for the last time, she knew the only way she’d ever be back in his grasp is over her dead body. When her car breaks down at the top of a mountain in the middle of a snowstorm, she thinks nature will take care of her death for him. On the run, the last thing she expects is to be offered shelter by three gorgeous men who can’t seem to get enough of her.

The Bearclaw brothers are descendants of the ancient Anikota tribe of Indians. Their beast spirit and blessing from the Maker allows them the ability to sense the one who would complete their soul. Being triplets, they always expected their mate to be one woman they’d share. With the Maker’s blessing, they’ll be able to ease past Gillian’s defenses before her past threatens to end their future.


Molten Silver: m/m/m/f sexin'. The men are brothers, so there's no lovin' between them, but plenty showered on the heroine. Violence against the heroine from the bad guy. And did I mention hot m/m/m/f sexin?
