Accepting the Bear Cover


Malkum Nitá is a bear shifter and one of two Dásreach enforcers in the Thirteen. Due to a tortured past, Malkum never wanted a mate, but he must accept it for the Thirteen to be the next Council. However, with no one having found their mates, it was looking like Malkum's bachelorhood was safe. That is until, Kai’s mate walked into Great Spirit Tattoo with her friends. Rogue inflamed his passion from the moment she touched his tattoo and tamed the ferocious bear.

Rogue Phenix had enough of changing for other people. Life had shown her many things and she wasn’t going to chase her dreams; she was going to make them happen. And, thanks to her Book Worm friends she had found the relationships she had never had, but it’s not enough, she wants it all – her friends, a family… and a man. But, just when she thinks she’s found her destiny, her man runs scared.

Unbeknownst to the Thirteen a darkness is working against them. Working in the shadows and using human pawns, the darkness has set its sights on Rogue and her friends.

Can Malkum come to terms with his past before it’s too late?

For anyone who has not read the first book in the series This is my Review of Book #1
Finding The Dragon.
By Josette Reuel.
Dasreach Council book 1
The Dasreach are shifters , every 20 years a new team of 13 are chosen to go through 20years of training. They are to be the council and their task is to protect the balance of the earth. By the end of that training they must also have a Mate, this mate provides the necessary balance. The current team are finding it hard to find their mates. They only have 18 months left to find them. So drastic measures are called for. Kai is the Dragon shifter , that makes him the leader. He decides to get out a globe and a set of darts to find where to look.
Alvena is a woman with no self confidence and serious trust issues. She does not even trust herself to make the right choices. T he friends she has made through a book group on facebook are the best friends she has ever had. There is a romance book conference coming up in New Orleans . Alvena is meeting two of her bookworm friends to go and enjoy the conference. Kai spotted Alvena before she leaves and knows she is his Mate, so he follows her.
Someone is trying to make sure none of the 13 get their mates, by killing the women that are possible matches. When several attempts have been made on Alvena ,Kai must try to get them back to home base ,but there is a traitor in the Dasreach who is sending the assassins to stop them. Alvena and Kai have an exciting cross country trip.

I found the intro and the prologue a little long winded , but you do need to read it. Once I hit the first chapter the story took off. It is an exciting and fun read. The girls friendship shows us that true friends are not necessarily the people you have known the longest or even the ones you see the most. They are the sisters of the heart who love you no matter what.´I am definitely going to read the rest of this series.
