About this ebook

Love at first sight? Fated mates? No way!
Fiercely independent, she's determined to deny their attraction. He's just as determined to change her mind.


Strong and independent, Chloe's never needed anyone, especially a man. The idea of a partner—or a mate—only sounds like a distraction. Besides, she's never met anyone worth the time.

That is until her work as an environmental researcher takes her to Grizzly Ridge and puts her directly in the path of way too sexy, way too intense, Luke Jackson. If her instincts have anything to say about it, he is most definitely worth something.

Chloe’s determined to get him out of her system, something that turns out to be a whole lot easier said than done. But when she makes a discovery that changes everything and could ruin the Jackson brothers and the Ridge, not only is her professionalism put to the test—so is her heart.

Reader note: His to Seduce is a full length stand alone bear shifter novel with no Cliffhangers! This series contains: strong, sassy, curvy women; sexy alpha males; steamy shifters and sizzling sex scenes.

I had never read a shifter story before the first book in Elena Aitken's Bears of Grizzly Ridge series. His to Seduce is the 2nd book in the series and equally compelling. A shifter book makes a promise of an extremely alpha male, and Ms. Aitken doesn't disappoint. Luke is strong and sensitive. While he isn't looking for his mate, he's open to the possibility, especially after seeing how happy his older brother is. Enter Chloe. She's not interested in mating, but everyone at Grizzly Ridge recognizes her for who she is as soon as she arrives. She takes her resistance to an extreme, risking alienating everyone on the Ridge when she does. She also takes her job seriously, affecting her personal life to the point she didn't want anyone else in it. She's a strong character, but there was something just below the surface that bothered me about her. Her overreaction to her discovery on the property was dramatic and a bit overblown-I was just thankful someone could talk her back into a realistic response. The brotherly interaction was well done, indicative of what happens when you put three alpha-males in the room together. Their fierce protectiveness of their mates, coupled with their sensitive dealings with the women themselves, make them extremely alluring to the reader. The author has teased us with the story of the third brother, making this reader anxious to read how he finds his happily-ever-after. Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I was so anxious to read this, the second in Ms. Aitken's new shifter series, that I was grateful to receive an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I have read all of Elena's other titles; however, when she came up with this new "Grizzly Ridge" series about Bear Shifters, I grabbed the first book, "His to Protect" right away. I enjoyed it so much that I have really been looking forward to the second book, Luke's story. Luke Jackson and his two brothers, Axel and Kade, have opened an environmentally friendly adventure lodge. In book one, Axel finds his "Mate", Harper, while the other two brothers are either reluctant or totally skeptical of the concept of finding a mate. However, when Chloe Karrington, and environmental researcher, comes to Grizzly Ridge in search of answers to an anonymous complaint about the lodge, she doesn't expect to find a "hot" bear shifter who turns her whole world upside down. There is love, adventure, suspense and humor in this book and I would highly recommend this series even if you haven't ever read Paranormal stories before. They are fun and light and oh so sexy. I can hardly wait for Kade's story, the brother who definitely isn't looking for his "mate". I hope these brothers have cousins or friends who can add to the series as I'm not looking forward to this series ending anytime soon. And, once you finish this book, try some of her other stories. You will be well pleased with Ms. Aitken's collection of romances.
