Gambling on her Bear by Anna Lowe!

Diamond thief falls for bear shifter security chief. What could possibly go wrong?

Dragon shifter Karen Proulx is in Vegas to hunt down a diamond, not a mate. But the minute she lays eyes on the brown-eyed bear of her dreams, everything changes.

Bear shifter Tanner Lloyd is a man on a mission to save his home town. He doesn’t have time for a wild ride with the beguiling woman who turns his world upside down — especially one who’s half witch and a mortal enemy of his clan. But how can he resist the call of destiny, the pull of desire?

A zany paranormal romance with adult content — not to mention vampires, showgirls, a card-dealing panther, and much more!

This is the standalone sequel to Gambling on Her Dragon.

An excerpt...

“You are as trying as ever, my dear,” Schiller sighed in that aristocratic Eastern European accent of his. The vampire tapped his long, perfectly manicured fingernails on the glass surface of the chest-high cocktail table beside him. Slowly, thoughtfully.
“Dragons don’t try,” Karen retorted, echoing one of her grandfather’s favorite lines. “We succeed.”
“And this is your definition of success?” Schiller pointed to the security guards cutting off every avenue of escape.
Okay, so her diamond heist hadn’t gone exactly to plan. She’d figure something out…eventually.
“The night is young.” She shrugged.
“That it is, my dear,” the vampire said, eyeing her neck.
A low, gritty sound came from her left, and though she didn’t dare look, she could sense Tanner bristling at her side. He was barely holding back an open growl — and barely holding back his inner bear, judging by the feral scent wafting off his broad shoulders.
Tanner. Part of her had melted the second she’d spotted the burly bear shifter. And damn it, most of her had melted when he’d touched her, because some kind of crazy heat shield started up whenever he came close, cocooning the two of them from the outside world. His deep brown eyes promised her everything, even if his face gave away nothing. The man was a mystery. An enigma. A riddle she had never been able to puzzle out.
But damn, she sure would like to keep trying.
Her dragon hummed deep inside. Like for the next century or two.
Did bears even live that long? She had no idea. It was rather a moot point, given the vampires looming all around them. And anyway, Tanner was a jerk, right? He hadn’t shown up to their second date, for starters. And worse, it seemed that Tanner worked for Schiller. What kind of self-respecting shifter did that?
But there was something hidden deep in his eyes that said, Wait. Please. Wait until I can explain.

My Review 

I love this author! She writes so many awesome things!! And this is just another one of those awesome books. So Karen really should stay away from Vegas, but she can't seem to help herself. She has a diamond she wants, and a shifter she's hot for, and some revenge on the side just calling her name. Karen's sister Kaya and her mate Trey almost didn't make it out alive from Vegas, and yet her Karen comes. And that one night with that shifter turned out to be a mess, well a beautiful disaster LOL. And then we have Tanner, that shifter, who's a bear. He needs to complete a mission for his clan. And meeting his mate in the middle of the chaos was not part of his mission plan. AND his clan is not going to be happy with who his mate is. So, it's complicated and oh so scrumptious. 

So, It's a struggle between Karen and Tanner but I loved their relationship and how it grew. Tanner is struggling not being with Karen, then she somehow appears right in his way. Tanner is security and Karen wants to steal a diamond from him. LOL And for Karen, it's on because she remembers what Tanner did that night, and then didn't do the next morning.

I love the writing style and this was so much fun watching these two almost fight it out! It's a great set of suspense and mystery and I won't lie, these two are pretty cool characters to love! Though I may still love her wolf series the most, her bears run a close second but her dragons are just AWESOME!!!   I absolutely loved it and I cannot wait for more!!! 5 PAWS!!
