Description from the publisher:
Rescuing Sonya from a fire is only the beginning. It's instant chemistry, a passion that burns as bright as the very fires that threaten to consume them.

They were destined to meet...

Caleb falls hard for the curvy woman despite knowing that he has little to offer her and that just by being with her puts her family in danger. After all, he's considered a traitor, a rogue shifter cast out of his clan. And worse, Sonya's been chosen to be Damien, Caleb's sworn enemy's, life mate.

Sonya knew the day would come when Damien would call to her. Her parents had groomed her since the age of thirteen, teaching her the ways and duties of becoming an alphas wife. She shares a hatred for Damien yet she can't allow her family to be punished, perhaps even murdered, by refusing to obey the alpha's call.

Caleb has only one move left - to challenge Damien as alpha in a fight to the death. If he wins he'll become the new alpha, get the girl, and lead his clan to higher ground.

But if he loses...


This is the first book in the Bear Instincts series.  There was no cliff-hanger or unresolved situations, so I think it safe to say that they do not need to be read in order.

Okay, can I just start with a big ol’ sigh!!!  I love Caleb.  Sexy, hunky, and he has a heart of gold.

Damien is the villain and he is truly hateable!

Sonya is sweetly submissive to her father and her expected position in life, until she meets Caleb and dares to wish for a different fate.

Altogether, this story was such a classic twist of hero –vs– villain to claim the girl.  I swear I could almost hear Snidely Whiplash chuckling as he rubbed his hands in diabolical glee (Sorry, just showing my age, folks). 

I’m looking forward to reading much more from Catherine Vale!
