"It's not every day that Elsa Bjornberg feels fragile, not when she hosts a home renovation show where she can effortlessly demolish a kitchen. But from the moment she meets Howard Barr, this bear of a man makes her feel like a woman. And the way he looks at her, as if she was a pot of honey he'd like to lick... Howard is not like most men. For one thing, he's a shapeshifter. And he always thought his celebrity crush would never amount to anything more than drooling at Elsa on the TV. When his meddling vampire employer gets involved, the star is suddenly within his grasp--and within a hair of her life. For an ancient curse forbids their newfound love, and Howard is suddenly torn between his desire for her and his desire to keep her alive."… (més)

He's a kodiak bear shifter and she is a Guardian, they both have curses that have shared history. Some very fun moments, I think I love bear shifters

Admission time. Up until recently I was terrified by anything with the world "romance" in its description. I imagined weak women, overly tough guys, and a story line that would be so saccharine filled that it hurt my teeth. Then, I discovered Kerrelyn Sparks and her world of paranormal characters. Romance, yes, but the type that is exciting, fraught with challenges, and has just the right amount of sexy times. Now? You couldn't tear these away from me if you tried.

This is the second book that I've read by Kerrelyn Sparks. I actually skipped from the first book right on to this one, but I can happily assure you that Wild About You is a solid standalone. Sparks allows the reader a glimpse at what is important in the past, and ties it all in to what is happening now. I wasn't the least bit lost as I read, and if nothing else it actually made me want to go back and finish the series. This, friends? This is what I like to call "book candy". Sweet, sinful, and downright addictive.

As you can probably discern from the synopsis, this is Howard's book. Handsome, hunky and hot Howard. He's a big bear of a guy (pun definitely intended) and absolutely drool worthy. The romance that is kindled between Howard and Elsa is delicious. It's slow, sensual, and as I mentioned above, has just the right amount of sexy times! I almost melted at some of the scenes between the two of them, and I'm certain that more than once a longing sigh escaped my lips. Be warned, you may swoon.

What I really loved thought was the plot! Elsa's curse really put a twist on her relationship with Howard, and it makes their story that much more enjoyable to read. Wanting to be together, but kept apart by their pasts. I so wanted them to change their fates and end up together! Although things started a little slow for me, by the end I was breathless and in love. I'm now on a mission to read the whole series. ( )

Cast out from his family after he tried to exact revenge on the werewolf alphas son for the death of his girlfriend the hero has never forgiven to burn inside of him for retribution. So he plans out his moves before putting them into action. He breaks into his enemy's house, steals his passwords and then proceeds to destroy him financially and publically. Feeling quite pleased with himself, the hero then returns to work as security for a gifted children school. The heroine has also felt horribly gangly and unpretty. Very tall and stalky for a woman, she's always referred to as amazon ellie. Working as a carpenter for a popular home renovation show the heroine is hired to spruce up the home of a very odd family. There she meets the hero and instantly sees him as the perfect man. He large, larger than her. He tall, taller than her. And he makes her feel beautiful and feminine and fragile. But she's devastated to find out hers also her mortal enemy. The hero had been half in love with the amazon from the tv show for a few months and now that he's actually met her he knows she's his dream girl-made perfect for him. But she's instantly skittish and shy and though he can see plainly how attracted she is to him, he's confused and hurt when she repeatedly turns down his attempts to get closer to her. The heroine has never believed much in the curse of her family but when the hansom hero activates her birthmark, she's forced to take it very seriously as it's stated that when her mark burns, she's in the presence of a berserker; a beast who will stop at nothing to see her dead. But even though she listens to her aunts who warn her away from him, inside she's constantly fighting doubts about the hero's true motives. How can someone so nice, so perfect in everyway be a danger to her? She finds out when he shifts into a bear in front of her that she may have more to fear from him than she first imagined. The whole book is shown the heroine in a back and forth battle between her head and her heart but when the old enemy threatens every the hero has, it's she who must take up her position as guardian and fight to protect the man she loves. I loved this book because it was so much more than just a sexual attraction. In fact, I could go as far as to say the sex scenes were rather boring. I had hoped for some hotter action after all the sexual build up but I didn't mind in the end because I just loved the hero and heroine so much. The hero was such a fantastic mixture of strength, nervousness, possessiveness and humor. He fought tooth and nail for his woman and refused to give up on her even when she begs him to. I loved his devotion and loyalty. I loved the heroine because she didn't stop feeling love for the hero despite the fact that she thinks he's her enemy. She desperately looks for the good in him just as much as she looks for the bad. I think this was because she didn't truly understand his attraction for her and as such the new emotions she was feeling made her run but hansom, hunky, hot Howard got his dream girl in the end. ( )

Oh Howard, our lovable teddy bear! I loved Howard's story. It was cool to see how the woman he admired from afar was already a part of his legacy. I also like how we bring back Rhett and find out the drama between him and Howard and how it all comes to a head and we finally get a solution. Bringing in yet another paranormal entity for this story made it intriguing even though it was a tad less action packed than others in the series. And I love how all the previous couples are either brought back into the story or talked about so you know they are still doing well. ( )

Nice, fast read. I like the way the author introduces new elements - that way the series remains interesting.
