Shape Shifter Romance

Sarah Ward, the werewolf sister of Bathsheba from Beauty Dates the Beast, and co-owner of their paranormal online dating agency, Midnight Liaisons, is voluntarily traded to a wolf clan in exchange for a kidnapped female were-cougar. Fearful of what might happen to her while with the wolf clan, she and Ramsey, a were-bear who’s part of the were-cougar alliance, pretend to be engaged so he can stay with her for protection. The last thing either of them expect is for their pretend engagement to lead to a very real love affair…

My Review
Ever since Sarah was turned, she has been on the run with her sister, hiding from those that would capture her because she is a wolf shifter. Now circumstances force Sara to go forward with a plan that is daring but dangerous. Sarah must convince the pack that she and Ramsey are true mates. Sarah suffered abuse from Roy, the shifter that turned her, and ever since has had a fear of being touched, and now she must prove that she is mated to a were bear, and scares her more than anything even though she knows in her mind he would never hurt her. Now they are thrown together, and must show affection, and before she even realizes it, she starts to fall hard for the silent yet hunk of a were bear Ramsey, and even though the odds are against them, their love for each other will set them free….

The Hero (Ramsey)
Ramsey, is a were bear, and when he was younger he was exiled from his clan, and now has served for the Alliance, and even though there is a part of him that desires to return, he doesn’t know if or when that will be. Ramsey, keeps to himself, he gets the job done, and is one of Beau’s most trusted liutenants and friends. Now with Sarah in danger, he volunteers to act as her mate to protect her from a pack that could destroy her. Ramsey, even though he is different from Sarah, can help her in way that no other could, but then with her so near, starts to get beneath his skin in ways he never imagined, and couldn’t imagine a life without her in it.

The Heroine (Sarah)
Sarah, has suffered much in her young life. When she was a teenager, fell in love once, but was abused and betrayed and turned against her will, and has been on the run from the wolves, knowing she could never be happy in a pack. Now after nearly losing her beloved sister, she knows that things need to change, to face the danger instead of running from it. So she hatches a plan, to deceive the wolves, and to give herself a new life. In the beginning, when she and Ramsey are forced together to show they are truly mated, she didn’t think there would be any harm in a few kisses, but then she knows its going to take a whole lot more than a few kisses to convince them, and when a passion flares between herself and Ramsey she doesn’t know how she will be able to ever let him go…..

My Thoughts
Desperately Seeking Shapeshifter is the newest addition to the Midnight Liasons series. After reading the first one, I just fell in love with the world that Jessica Sims has created, and I think I enjoyed this one even more……it was truly an amazing read, filled with a tender filled romance that could reach any reader. I just loved Sarah and Ramsey together, their story was truly magical. Even though in the beginning Ramsey scares Sarah, there is a spark that lights up immediately whenever they are near each other. Its obvious even from the first page, the connection these two have, and I just loved seeing it grow into something extraordinary. One aspect I truly loved in this story that you don’t see very often, is the hero being a virgin and never having sex before. I just love it when authors do this, and Sims did it with such talent, as if it was a normal occurrence in novels (when we all know it isnt). I also enjoyed the conflict part of the plot involving the other wolves, who try to convince Sarah she belongs with them, and I truly loved the danger aspect of the story, kept things interesting. Overall a sweet and sexy love story that will curl any readers toes, a story that will delight  you, characters that will charm you, and a read you don’t want to miss out on!!!! AN UNFORGETTABLE ROMANCE!!!!!

My Review
  Bathsheba, works for a company that sets up dates for paranormal beings of every kind. Although she is human, she knows that she must never date the clients. When a certain prestigious client, Beau. needs a date for the evening, when his date cancelled on him, she goes out with him against her better judgment. Then when sparks fly between them, she knows she is in deep trouble. Because not only is it forbidden to date Beau when it could easily get her fired from her job, and after having to protect her sister, she knows its very dangerous to get involved with Beau….but sometimes the way of the heart can get in the way of logic and reason…

The Hero (Beau Russell)
Beau, a were cougar, is the leader in his community, and above all looks out after the safety of those he is over. When he meets Bathsheba, he finds her unresistable even though she is a human, and everyone is shocked that he would even think of a atrocity, however, he can’t stay away from her…..no matter the cost and will do everything in his power to keep her in his life.

The Heroine (Bathsheba Ward)
Bathsheba, unlike the hero in the book is human, and when her sister was involuntarily turned into a werewolf, has been on the run ever since. Knowing that if any wolf caught sight of who they really were, would definitely never let her sister go. So Bathsheba is currently working on a job that is a perfect cover, until Beau arrives on the scenes, and stirs up her every sense and before she realizes what is happening she is starting to fall for a man more dangerous and sensual that she could have imagined…

My Thoughts 
Beauty Dates The Beast is the first in the Midnight Liasons series, and the first book by this author. I was at the bookstore…and the title just drew me especially since I have a weakness for shifter romances and I was thrilled after reading this book….definitely a high rater for me!!!! I think I loved pretty much everything about this book and I can hardly wait for the sequel. From the first few pages I was drawn completely into the story, and fell in love with Bethsheba and her sister, very endearing characters, and then the moment we see Beau….I think I fell in love with this hero…..breakthtaking and full of sensual promises and thrilling adventures….the plot was full of ups and downs and unexpected twists and turns that will take you on a breathtaking journey, and a beautiful love story that will pull at the very heart strings of every romance lover!!!! A MUST DIE FOR READ!!!!!
