"License to Shift" (Kathy Lyons) VIRTUAL TOUR ★★★★ with GIVEAWAY!!


Grizzlies Gone Wild #2
Kathy Lyons
Releasing Oct 4th, 2016
Forever Yours


Julie Simon returns to Saginaw, Michigan, to find her ailing father's missing research on local shapeshifter lore. Unlucky for her, the only person who can help her is the darkly sexy Mark Robertson, the guy who spent an entire summer giving her the cold shoulder-and one white-hot night of pleasure...

Mark is a hair's breadth away from going feral. Soon, his grizzly side will destroy everything that makes him a man. And after years of fighting, Mark is ready to give in to the beast. Then Julie-the gorgeous, curvy book nerd who awakened his most primal desires as a young man-shows up at his door. Now, he's fighting an insatiable longing to claim her as his mate. But Julie isn't the only one after her father's research. Someone-or something-evil is tracking Julie's every move...

“Join me,” he said. “Then I swear I’ll help you find your father’s journals.”
            Well, hard to deny him when he was acting so polite. And when everything smelled so divine. Then her stomach growled again, which had him smiling at her. God, he even had a dimple on his left cheek.
            A normal woman would cave gracefully. She would smile and nod prettily while she joined him at the table. She might even offer to decant the wine or something. But Julie wasn’t that smooth. Instead, she exhaled a reluctant breath and closed her eyes.
            “I will on one condition,” she finally said.
            Couldn’t he guess? Hell. She opened her eyes and looked at him. He’d just put the plates and glasses on the table. He stood there—full frontal—looking as clueless as any child. But he was adamantly not a child.
            “Could you please—for the sake of my sanity—put on some pants?”
            He blinked at her. Two full blinks, then he looked down at himself. Yup. There he was in his full, woody glory.
            She didn’t realize a man could blush with his whole body. Truthfully, she’d never had the opportunity to see it happen so clearly. Golden brown turned mottled red. And the dusky wood? That even purpled a bit.
            He made a choked sound, deep in his throat, and then his hands dropped to cover himself. Where before he’d been confident and manly, suddenly, his eyes were wide and his cheeks were bright red.
            He gave her a quick nod before he dashed past her into the hallway and downstairs. Even his ass had turned pink. And wasn’t that going to feature in her fantasies for years to come?
            Julie smiled as she settled down at the table to wait for Mr. Pink Cheeks to return.


LICENSE TO SHIFT by Kathy Lyons is a paranormal romance that features sexy grizzlies and human heroines.  In this shapeshifting tale, we have Mark, a grizzly shifter that is very close to going feral and losing his mind.  Despite the craziness inside his head, he is a loyal and caring friend and packmate.  Julie, searching for her father's journals, encounters Mark and sparks fly.  I liked Julie too.  She's is dedicated to her family yet also quite independent.  I enjoyed Mark and Julie together and the love that develops is sweet and true.  The storyline is intriguing and held my interest throughout.  There's danger and excitement that kept me riveted while turning each page to see what would happen next.  I did read book one, THE BEAR WHO LOVED ME, and it was nice to see the characters we met previously to show up in this story.  However, even though there is references to book one,  I don't think it is necessary to read it to understand and enjoy this tale.  If you enjoy paranormal shifter stories, I would recommend this series.
