Bear Heart is an erotic fairy tale about love, loss, trickery, past mistakes, regrets, longing, acceptance, and soul mates.
Simon, a human soldier in his past life, looses whom he believed to be his soul mate to another man. This revelation comes when he finally makes it home from war to his love, only to be faced with her treachery. The woman he loved, whom he thought would wait for him, didn’t.
Angry and distraught, Simon falls into the arms of a beautiful temptress who tells him she can help him gain his revenge on the man who stole his woman away. But wait. She’s too good to be true. What she offers him is too good to be true, and he finds himself cursed by the woman (witch) who said she would help him.
Centuries later, he meets another witch who brings his past and his mistrust to the surface. He’d grown to believe he deserves to be a recluse from society and deserves the curse upon him. Can he trust another witch? Does he want to? Well here’s the thing. The little witch may be able to help him gain what he desperately wants now. The beautiful Margaret. The problem? The past may never allow him to find happiness with his true soul mate.
I enjoyed reading this story and believe readers of paranormal romance will too.
