Review - "Mark of the Bear" by N.J. Walters

Mark of the Bear
(Hades’ Carnival #2)
Author:  N.J. Walters
Publisher:  Samhain Publishing
Release Date: 4/16/13
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Source: Bought (Samhain)

When the devil wants a deal, there's no bowing out gracefully.

At twenty-nine, Hollywood scream queen Kellsie Morris is acutely aware the clock is ticking on her career. Luckily, the one big role she needs to pad her retirement fund has just come through-the story of an immortal, shape-shifting warrior trapped in a carnival run by the Devil's minions.

When Kellsie arrives on set, she can't resist climbing aboard an amazingly realistic carousel bear-and finds herself flung into a world where the horror is real. As real as the heat radiating off the half-naked hunk in her arms.

Marko has waited an eternity for the chance to free his goddess, the Lady of the Beasts, and his fellow warriors from an ancient curse. But once he lays eyes on Kellsie, he knows to the bottom of his soul that his purpose is to protect her life.

But in this hellish game, it's the Devil's move. And there's no predicting when and where the final, brutal stroke will fall-and which lover will pay the ultimate price.

Warning: This book contains a heroine who's a screamer-in and out of bed-and a warrior who gives a whole new meaning to "method." After reading, please use caution when standing up. Your knees may be weak.

NJ, seriously!?! It had to end like that? :( I am so dying for the next book to be out now!!! This was another great read! This series is quickly turning into a favorite for me. It's unique and interesting. The story just sucks you right in and if you’re like I was, you won’t come back out until you’ve read the very last page.

Once again I LOVED the two main characters! There’s always something really special about NJ’s characters that instantly makes me fall in love with them and I think Kelsie may be my very favorite heroine of hers. I mean, she’s the freaking scream queen! Very cool! But then again I’m a horror movie nut, so she’s extra interesting to me. And Marko, well let’s just say there is something VERY appealing about a big cuddly bear that turns into and equally big hunky guy! Best of both if you ask me! ;)

I really like the other characters too! It was nice to get to see Aimee and Roric again. I can't wait to see who is next and I'm kind of more excited about who the next heroine will be. I mean a graphic novelist and the scream queen? These hunky shifters know how to pick 'em! ;)

If you enjoy a fast paced romance with hunky shifters, kick ass heroines and creepy but entertaining villains, this series is for you! You don’t necessarily need to read these in order but I recommend it because you’ll get the full story having read both! I’m looking forward to the next book in this series and pretty much anything else NJ decides to write because her books are always fantastic!
