Review orginally posted at RabidReads.com.
Polar Bared is book three in a humorous paranormal romance shifter series by Canadian author Eve Langlais. In this book, we have an anti-hero Gene, a polar bear and former military guy suffering from PTSD. He blames his military unit for his capture and inability to rescue him. He is set on vengeance.
Vicky is a heavier woman who had recently lost her husband. She is independently wealthy, so she doesn't really need to work. She decides to go do research on polar bears up in northern Canada. She isn't quite the adventurous type. She wears glasses, is clumsy and overweight, which doesn't make things easy for her in the Arctic. Oh, and she faints a lot. This doesn't bode well for her when she slips and slides down the ice right into the side of a scared, grouchy polar bear.
This is a series that is funny, sexy, suspenseful, action packed and did I mention funny. I mean you have a gruff, sexy, scared old polar bear chasing after a geeky, overweight, clumsy heiress. They are running from some really bad guys chasing them. The bad guys came at them with were-rabbits.
"Evil bunnies attack. Did they smack you in the shins with their big, floppy ears?"
"Not to mention, a rabid rabbit bit my leg. A wolf, that's respectable. A caribou gore, a fine battle wound, but getting chewed on by a bloody bunny, I won't have it."
This is a third book in the series and while you would probably be okay if you read the series out of order, I think you would get a lot more from reading them in order. They are all great books. Book two even has a moose shifter for the hero, so you'll want to check that out.
