Review: ebook provided
Welcome to Havenwood Falls, a small town in the majestic mountains of Colorado. A town where legacies began centuries ago, bloodlines run deep, and dark secrets abound. A town where nobody is what you think, where truths pose as lies, and where myths blend with reality. A place where everyone has a story. This is only but one…
Being the alpha’s queen is the last thing Atlas Belham has ever wanted. Yet here she stands, blindfolded and binding herself to a life with a man she's never even met. All for the good of her people.
Harrison Xavier’s plans have never included taking a mate, ever. He’s perfectly happy to allow his cousin to assume his place as leader, especially as old feuds reignite and the Black Bear Kingdom teeters on the edge of revolution. But when he sees Atlas, his whole world shifts.
Life as a royal and in her new hometown of Havenwood Falls, where nothing is as it seems, test Atlas’s resolve, but it’s Harrison who tries her the most. It’s ultimately up to her to choose—freedom and independence for herself or peace for the kingdom.
This is an adult fairy tale retelling in the Havenwood Falls series of New Adult and Adult fantasy novellas featuring a variety of supernatural creatures. The series is a collaborative effort by multiple authors. Each book is generally a stand-alone, so you can read them in any order, although some authors will be writing sequels to their own stories. Please be aware when you choose your next read. We do recommend that you read Forget You Not first as an introduction to the town and its eccentricities.
I received this book to give an honest review.
So umm this wasn't my favorite of Havenwood Falls though I did enjoy it I just felt that the way the ending came about was rushed.
So we are introduced to Atlas who is a cinnamon bear but her kind of bear is on the bottom of the totem pole so to speak.
Harrison is a black bear and is soon to be alpha to his father's kingdom. They both are binding to each other though they have never met. The whole plan is for the two to come together and bring the bear species together.
Now you just know that the two have to fall in love because what else could possibly happen? We see how the two slowly start to fall for each other and Harrison learns of the kingdom's secret it isn't pretty. The spark of romance that hit the both of them was perfect. I really liked the idea of both of them having a tattoo.
When Harrison finds out the terrible truth about what is going on with his father and the kingdom from that point on the story just seemed to be rushed and thrown together. That is why I dropped a rating. Another thing that bothered me is where in the world does a castle fit into Havenwood? Why has no one ever really seen this castle before? Yes, I do know that there are magical wards but there are other supernaturals that live in Havenwood that I am surprised that no one has brought it up.
Lila Felix is full of antics and stories. She refused to go to Kindergarten after the teacher made her take a nap on the first day of school. She staged her first protest in middle school. She almost flunked out of her first semester at Pepperdine University because she was enthralled with their library and frequently was locked in. Now her husband and three children have to put up with her rebel nature in Louisiana where her days are filled with cypress trees, crawfish, and of course her books and writing. She writes about the ordinary people who fall extraordinarily in wild, true love.
