Kodiak's Claim by Eve Langlais
He might growl, but she’s not afraid to bite.

Hands full taking care of his clan, the last thing this Kodiak bear needs is a woman poking her cute little nose into his affairs. But when she refuses to back down—and shows the courage to stand up to him—he can’t resist the allure of a curvy city girl.

She’s mine. All mine.

And when a rival clan thinks to use her to force his paw, he’ll show them why you never piss off a Kodiak, or threaten what’s his.

Tammy is convinced men are all scum, even gorgeous ones like Reid Carver. She knows he’s hiding something. Something big. She just never expected a real freaking bear hid underneath all those muscles. But when the truth comes out and he tries to scare her off with a roar, she shows him not just bears have bite.

I have fallen in love with Eve's shifters.  They are a wonderful mix of traditional lore with a nice little twist to their world to make them unique.  The setting and history of Kodiak Point really stood out to me in this one.  I loved how remote and some-what self-sufficient the town was.  It was it's own little shifter world tucked out in the Alaskan wilderness.  Eve really brought that wilderness to life and showed several times just how remote the place was.

At first I missed some of Eve's clever dialog.  Reid Carver just doesn't seem to say a whole lot at first, but once he opened up a little the lovely way she has of speaking for her characters came to life once again.  I loved Reid and his bear - they both seemed to have quite a mind of their own, and frequently disagreed on what to do about Tammy.  He is the alpha and leader of Kodiak Point and takes his job very seriously.  So when Tammy shows up to investigate his insurance claims, he's determined to keep things professional and make sure she doesn't know the true nature of the town's residents.

Well, he fails miseably.  Not only does Tammy end up falling for him, but she's convinced something fishy is going on.  While investigating the claim things get a little strange.  Her time with Reid leads to some danger as whoever is targeting him decides to use her to get to him.  This was a very exciting part of the story line and I stayed up late to make sure I could find out what happened.

The ending was beautifully written.  It really highlighted why these two were so perfect for each other.  Throughout the book we meet several other residents of Kodiak Point and their stories promise to be just as much fun as this one.


  1. wonderful review!! I have read this author before and really liked her style. So I definitely need to give this one a try.

  2. I just finished book two, Outfoxed by Love, and it was just as good. I really loved the girl in that one.
