Aidan McMillan is a bear on a mission. Together with a group of like-minded shifters called the Alliance, he’s uncovered the existence of one of the most infamous concepts in shifter history/legend: The Sons of Domnall, a secret society of humans sworn to destroy all shapeshifters. One of their cells has popped up in Edinburgh, and the Alliance is set on infiltrating them somehow. Meanwhile, he’s also investigating the death of his parents years ago. Everyone says it was an accident, but was it really?
Heidi Blackwood, the daughter of her pack’s alpha, has been sent to work with Aidan and the others in order to hunt down the Sons of Domnall and neutralise the threat they pose to wolves all over the world. When they first lay eyes on one another, they know right away: they’re meant to be mates. Although Aidan smells unlike any wolf she’s ever met, she doesn’t yet realise that he’s the one thing she shouldn’t look for in a mate: a bear, one of the wolves’ natural enemies.
Can they stay on task long enough to successfully fight the Sons of Domnall? Or will their complicated feelings for one another throw a spanner in the works before it’s all said and done?
This paranormal romance novella is the second in the Scottish Werebear series. Although each part stands on its own and can be read out of order, you’ll get more enjoyment out of them if you read them one after the other. Themes include: opposites attract, fated mates, love conquers all.

In The End It's Always Us Against Them
Heidi a wolf shifter was chosen as their packs representative to the Alliance by her pack alpha, who also happened to be her father. She knew it was a great honor, but always thought one of the young males would've been chosen instead of her. *Who could be more reliable than Heidi herself? She'd learned at an early age that if you wanted something done right, you had to do it yourself.(*direct book quote) She had led a pretty sheltered life as the daughter of the packs alpha, but that didn't mean she was a push over. She could stand up for herself and had against many of the males her age within the pack. Now the outside world? That's a whole different scenario, especially when the very first person she comes in contact with is her mate.
Aiden a bear shifter has is own agenda while working with the Alliance, who are hunting the Sons of Domnall, a secret society of humans sworn to destroy all shifters. He agrees with what they stand for, but he needs to find out what happened to his parents. He wasn't keen on the idea of them bringing in someone new, but as soon as he opened the door to her he knew she was his mate. He never thought there'd be anyone out there for him.
What happens when they both find out what the other person is under their skin? Will they allow fate to pull them together or fight it since bears and wolves do not get along? You'll have to read Scottish Werebears: A Dangerous Business to find out, but it'll be worth the time you take to read it. I cannot wait to read Book 3 Scottish Werebears: A Forbidden Love to see what happens next. Each of these novellas are a quick read and could be read as a standalone HEA, but I recommend reading the complete series in order to get the little tidbits of background information on everything. I received an ARC copy via IndieSage in exchange for a blog tour review. Due to sexual content this novel is recommended for readers 17 and older!
The threat against the shifters becomes clear to the Alliance
We met Aidan in the first book which focused on his brother's romance, and here we not only see Aidan meet his true mate but we also get fully immersed in the mystery and suspense of the criminal threat against the shifters in Scotland. Heidi is completely caught off-guard by her attraction to Aidan and isn't sure what to do about the unusual and possibly taboo nature of their true mate pairing. Aidan is content to let her figure things out in her own time while he pursues the truth behind his parents' deaths years ago.
This story had a lot more action than the previous book, and it was extremely well done. Their romance was perfectly interspersed with the action scenes and the ending was victorious as well as heartwarming. I just love the connection the two lovers have and how it enables them to work together so beautifully. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
Aidan and Heidi Loved it !!
We met Aidan briefly in book one in this series. Aidan works for the Alliance, which is a group of various species working together to keep all safe. Well they have come across of humans who are working together to destroy all shape shifters and Aidan knows they have to stop them. But a little pretty thing might stand in his way. Heidi is the daughter to an Alpha and she has been sent to join in with the Alliance on this mission. When Heidi meets Aidan, she immediately knows who he is but she is not sure she understands. He isn't one of her kind and she has no idea what to do about it? Can Aidan show Heidi that they are to be one regardless? The fates choose whom they want.
But can Aidan keep Heidi safe while they figure each other out?
His brother Derek may be able to give him some advice since he just took a human as a mate.
I enjoyed this book and love this authors writing style also.
