To win a frightened heart, you have to bare your own.


Halle Shifters, Book 3

Any woman would be eager to be Ryan Williams’s mate. Any woman but Glory Walsh. The sexy bear shifter is beautiful, strong and persistent, she’ll give him that. But Glory’s past taught her one simple truth: people leave. She can’t get past the fact he left her once before. Okay, so he had a good reason, and he did come back. Try convincing her emotions.

When Glory finally agrees to a date, Ryan feels like shouting hallelujah. He only left his mate to hunt down the man who’d shot her, but convincing the stubborn woman she has a permanent place at his side is tougher than he thought.

Their date takes a turn for the bizarre when Glory thanks Ryan for the series of romantic gifts—gifts Ryan never sent. It seems her past is coming back to bite her, and before it has a chance to sink its teeth in and tear her out of his life, Ryan will have to bare it all, right down to his soul, to protect the woman he loves. Even from herself.


Warning: This title contains explicit sex, graphic language, a blue-haired heroine, and a hero who isn’t afraid to get all kinds of naked.



BEAR NAKED delivers with the sexy shifters and the humor. Dana Marie Bell always makes me laugh with the humor, and snarky comments. Glory has abandonment issues that stem from when she was younger and her twin sister went missing and then her father kicked her out and left with her  younger sister and brother. She didn’t have anything but the money in her wallet and the clothes she was wearing. She went t live with Cub and her mother. RYAN IS A BEAR SHIFTER, and he has to convince her that he will never leave her and that she is his mate and he wants to spend the rest of his life with her. When her lie is threatened by a crazy stalker, Ryan enlists the help of his family to help protect her.

Hen she is bitten by the crazy stalker with a changing bite, Ryan has to give her the mating bite to counter the changing bite. Ryan does not like that her change was forced on her and convince her hat everything will be fine. At tis point we get some very steamy sex scenes that will have you wanting a cold shower. One of my favorite parts of the book that had me rolling on the floor with laughter is when everyone pitched in to clean Ryan’s place before his family arrived in town. Glory told Ryan that she had a crock pot that she wanted him to take to the dumpster. He told her that it could be cleaned. His cousin asked him how long ago was it that they had made the chili? And he replied that it was in college. They proceeded to tell him that he might need a flame thrower to get rid of it. Then he notices that the carpet I actually beige. The whole scene will have you laughing.

If you have not read any of the Halle Shifters novels, I urge you to do so. You will not be disappointed. I give BEAR NAKED 5/5 stars. 

Here are the others in the series.
