The gift of the padfoot cost Ripley Kent everything.

As a girl, she was chosen by the death dog. In one week, she lost everything. Her parents, her brother. Even her community of shifters shunned the power she sheltered.

She swore she’d never return to their prejudiced hatred, but when her uncle dies, Ripley is called back to Troutdale to settle his affairs. She thinks she can get in and get out unaffected, but Joe Elliott has other ideas.

He needs her, and it’s not in all the old ways her body remembers so well.

His twin brother has been bitten by a rabid wolf, and as the death glow overwelms the town, Ripley’s padfoot gift explodes into the curse she’s always feared.

Ripley owes these people nothing after the way they’ve treated her. But that’s the thing with gifts. Sometimes they cost more to leave behind than to use.

This is a really impressive book. Set in the works of the Whiskey Witches series and with many overlapping characters, it’s the story of a woman named Ripley and Decima, the padfoot that inhabits her. It is a great story, with a love in the making between Ripley and Joe, her best shifter beau, bigotry, issues of loyalty both deserved and undeserved, the threat of death hanging over several of the characters and so much more. What makes this novel so very good, however, is the author’s view of what a padfoot is and what it’s role is. The padfoot in this novel is very similar to the spirit animals that inhabit, and share the body, of shape-shifters in many paranormal fiction novels. There are important differences though, chief of which is that in this series the Padfoot have a special connection to death. They’re much closer to the hellhounds of mythology, like Cŵn Annwn, Garmr and Cerberus, than they are to shifters. The implications of this, both how it impacted Ripley before the time of this tale and how it further impacts her in the story, is what drives the storytelling.

A divided bear clan is a powerless one.

Emma Elliot has a choice: step up as the alpha her clan needs or claim her own freedom by loving Mason Covey.

The adorable, free-spirited, porcupine shifter charms his way into her heart by being exactly what she needs in her life.

However, with a rival bear clan poised to take control of Elliot Clan’s resources, now is not the time to appear weak. Emma’s mother—the current alpha—wants her to follow tradition and produce bear cubs to “secure her place” as the new alpha. But what about Emma’s wishes?

What Emma wants and what her clan requires of her might be two different things. How much is she willing to sacrifice to become the leader her people need to win the coming war?

The porcupine and the bear! This was such a fun and entertaining read. Shifters falling in love. Rivals on the edge of war. Grizzly Attraction: Volume 2 is set in the whiskey witches world and still holds that humor and atmosphere of the original series.
