Pursuing the Bear (Shifter Wars #2)

By Kerry Adrienne



The Shifter Wars heat up when a woman investigates the mysteries surrounding a fierce breed of man and exposes more than just secrets.

Bear shifters exist. Professor Bria Lane has known this since she was a child. Now she’s returned to the forests of Deep Creek to prove it to the world. She has no idea how close she is to that proof in ruggedly sexy park ranger Derek Poole. Intimately close. But uncovering Derek’s wild side comes with a shattering price.

Like a magnet meeting metal, Derek is drawn to Bria. His destiny. His mate. So beautiful and so vulnerable. So dangerous, too: an encroachment of lions, vengeful and vicious, is closing in and they’re ready for war. Now is not the time to be distracted like a lovesick cub.

If Bria reveals the truth of the Deep Creek shifters to the world, she’ll bring out the worst of both sides. But Derek can’t hide his secrets from the love of his life forever. He knows they’re playing with fire–and that when passion runs this hot, this reckless, someone’s bound to get burned.


In Pursuing the Bear, tensions are rising and war is coming between the bears and lions.  Lions are making their plans to take back the Cave of Whispers. Bears are going to do everything they can to protect it and the rest of Deep Creek.

Bria has come to Deep Creek to prove herself.  After having all of work stolen from her, she believes that she will prove that shifters exist.  She has worked her whole life to make her parent proud and now is her chance.

Derek is a ranger that loves Deep Creek and his clan.  He will do anything to protect it even from his own mate.  He hates war but will stand by his fellow bears in order to keep everyone safe.

The connection between Bria and Derek is strong.  They are instantly drawn together.  But Derek is keeping a big secret and Bria has trust issues. Can she let him into her heart after she finds out the truth?

Kerry Adrienne has put together a fast paced and touching story.  She built on the characters that we were introduced to in Waking the Bear.  They have great personalities and they make a great family.  The end of the story had a lot of emotion and was very exciting.  I’m really looking forward the next addition which will be from the lions perspective.
