Summary

Up-and-coming supermodel Hailey Crewe can’t wait to escape the limelight and return to the anonymous lifestyle she once led. 

Escaping literally? That was never part of her plan. 

But when an unwanted suitor - and her scheming mother/manager - go a step too far with a surprise Hawaii wedding, Hailey becomes a bride on the run. Before she knows it, she’s not only being hunted by a greedy oil tycoon, but by his creepy security force, too. It's a good thing she bumps into her very own Lancelot at exactly the right time.  

Bear shifter Timber Hoving is just another Special Forces vet slowly adjusting to island time. That is until an irresistible stranger rushes into his meticulously organized world. Before Tim knows it, his human side is wrestling with temptation, and his bear is head over heels in love. 

But Hailey’s first encounter with shifters is a terrifying one, and Tim can’t reveal the truth about himself without losing her forever. Worse, sinister shifter forces are closing in, following a ruthless agenda of their own. They’ll stop at nothing to capture Tim’s destined mate - dead or alive.

Hailey and Tim - Will She Stay?


This book about Timber and Hailey, we met Timber aka Tim in the previous book when he and his brothers arrived on this island paradise to work security for their friends. When Tim meets Hailey she is running, she got up that morning thinking she was going to be a Bridesmaid at the wedding of her boyfriend's sister. She had been planning on breaking off her relationship with Jonathan but didn't want to spoil his sister's wedding for him. So she enters the wedding space to find she's been ambushed, for want of a better word, Jonathan goes down on one knee and proposes so THEIR WEDDING can take place now!

This plan has been concocted by Jonathan and her mother (a really greedy, selfish piece of work in my opinion, she tries to tell them both NO but they won't take no for an answer the only option left to her is to RUN! Run she does straight into Tim who helps her ESCAPE and offers her a place of safety. Tim has already recognised her as his fated mate but how to convince her.

Hailey is invited to stay with Tim and help him fix up a property belonging to Boon, another bear shifter, did I mention Tim is a bear shifter? Whilst they spend a week together working on the property and getting to know each other Hailey is falling for Tim but Tim is holding back, could Hailey love a shifter?

When Hailey is attacked by a wolf shifter working for Jonathan Tim and his brother Connor save her but she is so frightened by the experience that Tim feels he can't tell her what he is. So despite a deep love on his part he decides to keep his secret and loose Hailey. But once again Destiny steps in and forces both their hands, the truth comes out in the most dramatic way, Anna Lowe never does things by halves, I was on the edge of my seat wondering how Tim and Hailey were going to survive this part of the story. I loved this book I loved getting to know Hailey and watching her character grow and I adored Tim, I can't look at a door frame now without thinking of him - you will know why when you listen to this book. I can't really say anything further without giving out too many spoilers, if you have read the blurb you know what to expect but whatever your expectations - this book will exceed them. I loved it

Aloha Shifters is by far my most favourite series to date, this book is the second book in Pearls of Desire, a follow on from Aloha Shifters but I personally think of it as one series. The writing style of Anna Lowe is so very good and easy to follow along, her descriptions of the places and the people make you feel like you've met them and the depth she gives to all her characters is just incredible her words paint a picture and that picture in painted beautifully by Kelsey Osborne who does the most amazing job of narrating this book. I can't praise her or Anna Lowe highly enough. Bring on the next book I say!

This book was given me as a gift and I am voluntarily writing my review.

Rebel Bear

Another amazing paranormal shifter book by this author! The twists and turns in this book were so nice to listen to. Watching Timber struggle with his bear about Hailey being her mate was comical at times but intense at others. Unfortunately for Timber, Hailey finds out about shifters in a fearful way and make me Timber scared to tell her about himself. Because of this, Hailey finds herself in danger. As expected in any romance the hero comes to save the day and does so well with the help of an unexpected kind. The book takes you all the way to your HEA and then some. I can’t wait to see what comes next in this group of amazing shifters.
The narration of this book is amazing! I knew exactly who was talking without having to wait to be told. The voices in here as well as the feelings put in them are phenomenal.

I'd fall for Timber

Rebel Bear is book 2 of the latest series by Anna Lowe and she hasn't disappointed me ever. I loved reading about Tim and Hailey and think you will too, even though I encourage you to read from the beginning in order to get the most out of all the connected bits.

Hailey is set up by her mother to marry Jonathan, a rich but not quite nice man. When she runs away from the surprise wedding she didn't want or agree to, her plight comes to the attention of Tim, a bear shifter who feels a pull to help her. Hailey doesn't know Tim, but she feels safe with him just the same. The journey is full of obstacles, which I won't divulge, but can say that I'm happy to be able to keep reading these books as long as Anna keeps writing them.

This is a voluntary review of an advanced copy.

Fun Bear Shifter Romance with some Action!

Entertaining and interesting! Love bear shifters because they are sweeties. I wish there was actually more of the shifter tendencies, and more time spent in their shifter form. Tim and Hailey are really sweet together! Their romance is kind of a slow burn, but they have a connection right from the beginning. Tim is great, and Hailey was lucky he was there for her. I liked Hailey, but the girl can't read people very well. She doesn't know when to cut people out of her life and say NO!, but she does get better. I don't like how the situation with Hailey's mom ended. Hailey is trying to hideout because her mom and this guy Hailey has been dating, but doesn't really like, is trying to force Hailey into marriage. Tim rescues her and helps her hideout. I'd read the first book in the series before this one because there are previous characters in this book, and there is a storyline that will probably go throughout the series. I was actually quite disappointed in the group this time! Tim was pretty much on his own for this adventure. I always love the action Lowe includes in her books, and I love the Hawaiian setting. The magical elements are great too, but in this book, I was a bit confused about what Hailey's pearl does. I listened to the audio version while I was driving, so maybe I missed a better explanation for it. It just seemed too vague. Speaking of the audio, I've listened to this narrator before, and she does a good job, but I think she's a little too exuberant at times. Maybe I'm just ready for a different narrator, but the listening experience is still good. I don't quite have the connection with the characters and story from this series as I have with past Anna Lowe books; I have high expectations for Lowe's books, so it's hard to live up to at times, but I'm still really enjoying this series. Looking forward to seeing what happens with the other shifters!

Tim and Hailey

This is the second book in the Aloha Shifters: Pearls of Desire series. Although I thoroughly enjoyed book 1, Rebel Dragon, this one is even better. OMG!! it is so good. I have a very long commute to work and was so into the book that I almost missed my stop. Good thing I get off the train at the end of the line. This was a really fun suspenseful listen. Loved Tim and Hailey and could not wait until they got together since it was obvious they really wanted each other based on their self talk. On the flip side, I could not stand Hailey’s stuck-up mother, Jonathan, and Lamar. This book kept me interested from the beginning right to end. I am also glad the other characters from Rebel Dragon were in the book. Ms. Lowe is so talented, I don’t know how she comes up with such good stories.

A lot happens during the course of the book and it moves along at a really good pace. As I have mentioned before, Ms. Lowe has a great imagination and a gift for storytelling. I HIGHLY recommend this series.

A Runaway Bride Finds Her Bear Mate to Her Surprise

Haley, a famous model, kept in the profession by her mother, pursued by a rich man who wants to marry her...press her to a surprise wedding. So she runs and is found by Tim, a bear shifter, her fated mate. The thing is she knows nothing of shifters and saw her grandfather killed by wolf.
Tim and Haley are perfect compliments to each other and in the beautiful Hawaiian islands, the family of shifters, the continued inclusion of a family of shifters I’ve come to love from previous books..this is a fun, romantic, well written story of romance, mystery, suspense, action and love. Narrated in a way to draw you into the action and sweetly brings you into the shifter mind and his bear.

Great story

I loved how the author brings the animal to life with its human character. Tim appeared to be able to let his mate go a little too easy. I know there would have been more of a fight had she decided to leave him.
