Three for the price of two. For the first time ever, a handy collection of the first three novellas in the Scottish Werebear series. Titles include An Unexpected Affair, A Dangerous Business, and A Forbidden Love.
Scottish Werebear: An Unexpected Affair
When romance novelist Clarice Adler hides herself away in a secluded holiday cottage to finish a book, the last thing she needs is another relationship. Imagine her surprise when she falls head over heels for the man who runs the place.
Derek McMillan knows Clarice is his mate, but he's a bear shifter, and she's human, and the two simply don't mix. They are literally worlds apart; can they find a way to come together?
Scottish Werebear: A Dangerous Business
As part of the Alliance, bear shifter Aidan McMillan is hunting the Sons of Domnall, a secret society of humans sworn to destroy all shifters. Along comes Heidi Blackwood, his fated mate, and it suddenly becomes nearly impossible to focus on the job.
Scottish Werebear: A Forbidden Love
Alison Campbell has been told that shifters are evil and the world would be a better place without them. In her efforts to infiltrate the Alliance to gather intel for the Sons of Domnall, she comes across Jamie Abbott, bear shifter and Alliance leader, who doesn't seem so bad at all. In fact he seems to be all her heart desires, and the feeling is mutual. Where will her loyalties lie when it becomes time to pick a side once and for all?

An interesting paranormal romance series. Each story is stand alone but there is a larger theme that threads through the series and connects the books. The books are a little larger than bite size, with a little shifter magic, a little suspense and a plenty of romance, making then good for when a person needs a shifter romance fix on the go. The stories aren't the best in this genre, but the overall theme is interesting and I am curious to know how things will work out in the long run.

Unfortunately not one I enjoyed, the story is set in Scotland and yet narrator failed to bring this to life. The American accents didn't work for me.
The first two books were had a very similar story line. Mates meet and deny the attraction, then there is a crisis, sex and they live happily ever after.
The last book had a much more interesting story line and kept me listening to the end.
Use a narrator that can master the Scotish accent. Add a few more twists and turns into the books.
Sorry I couldn't see this with these books

"Really Enjoyed it!"
It's pretty high at the top. I love the series so far!
it's Aidan and Heidi
When Alison stood against her family to help save Jamie and the others.
I had the audio version of it. This is the first time I read any shifter books. I really enjoyed the first three books of the series. I liked being able to continue reading the story. The characters were great. The shifter men super hot. Can't wait to read the next book. Great story lines, all connected. Short read but tantalizingly sweet! I'm going to look fro the 4th book that way I can read it. Keep up the great story lines. Definitely an one-click buy. If you love to read about shifters' story then this book is for you to read.
"I love this Series"
I listened to the first one a while back but decided to listen to it again. It was good the first time and the second time as well. The h made me a little angry after listening to it the second time. She can't get mad with him when he is doing what he was taught to do. She is the one who jumped to conclusions. He just did not correct her assumptions.Loved Aiden's story in Book 2. He falls in love and is mated to a wolf. Fun times tonight but they can't tell anyone because they are not supposed to love across species. Jamie figures it out but his story in book 3 is even more sweet if that is such a thing. He falls in love with and is mated to a human. The very human who was instrumental in his brother being kidnapped. The twist and turns this one takes are very good. The narration was spot on throughout the entire three stories. I am getting the next set. I like it when books are connected then offered as a set. It irks me to listen to one story and know that the next one will finish the first one and you have to wait on the next story. Making the box set available is so much better to keep loyal customers. I got this book via audiobook boom.
This is a great book; this set contains books 1-3 of the Scottish Werebear series written by Loreliei Moone and narrated by Patrick Blackthorne. This book can be listened to in one sitting if you have the time, once I started listening to it I didn’t want to put it down until the end. When romance novelist Clarice Adler hides herself away in a secluded holiday cottage to finish a book, the last thing she needs is another relationship. Imagine her surprise when she falls head over heels for the man who runs the place. Derek McMillan knows Clarice is his mate, but he's a bear shifter, and she's human, and the two simply don't mix.
The narrator Patrick Blackthorne did a great job with this book. He did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to in one sitting and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end.
If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.

Three short enjoyable novellas each with a HEA
The stories are all entertaining, interesting, enjoyable and worth a listen, but to me it would have been better if this had been one book with the stories interwoven together with a little more detail and storyline.
These are 3 separate novellas combined into one book that tie into each other in the end. Especially the 2nd and 3rd stories. While each story is good, they had the potential to be really good stories.
The imagination, ideas, talent and writing are all there.
Patrick Blackthorne did a good job with the narration of these stories. Nice voice. Smooth even pace with the narration. Female voices were also good. Even though the stories all take place in Scotland there is no accent at all. Even a slight Scottish accent would have made the stories that much better.

"Feels Like the 1st few Chapters of a Longer Book"
They were decent stories but it really felt like the story was just getting started when it was suddenly over. It felt like the first few chapters of a book that should have been much longer. Some characters show up in later stories so you see how the stories are connected but it is very brief.
The books are set in Scotland but the narrator does not even attempt a Scottish accent. I found that I was disappointed with the narrator’s american accent. He wasn’t a bad narrator, it just didn’t fit with the story. I like audiobooks partially for the performance and love when it adds to the story and I feel like this was a missed opportunity.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
"Light listen / stalker-ish heroine"
I'm sorry, Lorelei.
(I feel really bad that I have to give a low rating to this author's work. I think she has real potential, but it just isn't evident in this book.)
I really liked the premise of a heart broken woman who writes romance novels, and who rents a cottage in Scotland while she recovers from a bad break-up and finishes her latest book. I thought this was a great idea. Unfortunately, the first story, and what I read of the 2nd, isn't fully fleshed out, and what there is, just doesn't make sense in a romance. In a thriller? Yes! Just not a romance.
What I did like was the flow of the story. the author really conveyed the sense of her character being in a remote place alone while struggling to finish her book. The language was spare and atmospheric and I really wish she would have stayed with that. It would have been a very different book.
Clarice arrives at the cottage in Scotland, where she meets, and is attracted to the owner, Derek McMillan. He is handsome, muscled and keeps his distance. But every day, he brings her food and leaves it on her porch. Unfortunately, the gift of food doesn't make sense. They don't speak to each other or interact at all, and it just made me wonder: Why is this guy feeding her?
The food causes Clarice to assume Derek has a wife who cooks, and when the opportunity comes up, he doesn't correct her assumption. He prefers his solitude, and doesn't care to get to know someone who won't be there long. But Clarice is so attracted to him that she feels guilty because of his wife, even though she's never met her. She's so curious about the woman, that she sneaks over to his cottage at night, and looks in his windows trying to get a look at her. (Stalker much?)
Clarice is so obsessed with Derek that she changes the description of the hero in her book to look just like him, and she thinks about him all the time.
But -- NOTHING HAPPENS BETWEEN THESE TWO PEOPLE that could cause Clarice to think that they have a relationship. Nothing.
So, when Clarice learns that Derek doesn't have a wife, she completely freaks out and falls apart, way out of proportion to the situation. She's upset that he 'lied' to her, and 'betrayed' her. (Betrayed her? Because he didn't tell a stranger his private business?)
She gets so upset she crashes her car.
(Clarice acts exactly like a stalker who has fantasized a relationship that never existed.)
It was bizarre.
Then they have sex, because he says she's his mate. But at no point do they ever have a real conversation before that happens. He says she's his mate, she believes it, they have sex, the end.
The narration is a bit disappointing because this story takes place in Scotland, with characters who are either Scottish or from London, and yet the narration is American. I've heard worse, but an opportunity was lost by not using accents.
Bottom Line: Light listen with a stalker-y heroine and insta-sex. Can't recommend this particular book, but I'll be keeping my eye on this author.
FYI: I received this book for free in return for an honest review.
"4 Werebear Stars"
I really enjoyed each of these 3 short stories. They are all separate but they all connect.
I loved how shy Clarice was the one to bring Derek out of his shell.
But he was also the one to show her there is more to life than work. But it was more a feeling of trust being as he is a Werebear and she is a human.
I never would have figured Aidan to be the one to sit back and wait for his mate to see they were meant to be. It was kind of nice for the male to have such faith that it will work out the way it was supposed to.
Daughter to the Alpha wolf pack Heidi, goes in to the Alliance to make sure everything is on the up and up. Even though Wolves and Bears have had an alliance for a while it never hurts to make sure everyone is being treated equally. Can a wolf and a bear become mates?
What if you were told all your life about monsters and people being coming animals. Would you could you trust yourself when you meet one face to face? Alison has to decide are shifter truly evil like she has been taught all her life?
Jamie is the leader of the Alliance and someone or something is trying to infiltrate it. He is on the hunt for who that is. Only who does he trust? This Alison seems sketchy but his heart knows her.
I love the trust that has to go on not only in Jamies story but in all of them a great audio for sure.
*All my Reviews are 100% honest and my own.*

"Scottish were bear 1-3"
I love the way that one book runs into the next so .smoothly and each book plot gets better then the last.
- An Unexpected Affair:
Clarice Adler decides to go on a small trip to focus on her writing.
Once she arrives at the cottage, she meets, the owner, Derek McMillan.
He immediately knows that Clarice is his mate. He tries to give her space but quickly realizes it is a losing battle.
- A Dangerous Business:
This story is about Aiden, Derek's(from book one) brother.
Aiden is a member of a secret society, the Alliance.
The Rannock Alpha has sent Heidi, his daughter, to be the wolf representative for the Alliance.
Aiden and Heidi meet and it is a bit tense at first. I wasn't too sure about a were bear and a wolf mating, seemed a bit odd to me.
Heidi needs a little rescuing and afterwards she decides to give Aiden a chance.
Derek and Clarice from book one make an appearance in this book.
The second book ends a bit abruptly similar to the first book.
- A Forbidden Love:
Jamie is the Alliance Leader in Edinburgh and Alison goes under cover to find information on the Alliance and The Sons of Domnall.
Sparks fly between the two main leads and soon enough they form their own "alliance".
Alison's mission soon changes to helping Jamie find out what happened to his missing brother, Matthew.
I would recommend this book(s) only when the author has completed the series.
The author stated that it can be read as a stand-alone but the books end too abruptly for them to be stand alone books.
I will be willing to re read or re listen once the series is complete.
Patrick Blackthorne did well with the narration.
