Romance Erotica Sensual | Romance Paranormal

Berg Dunn, is a grizzly shifter, a bodyguard and he finds there is this one body he would love to guard. It's the naked woman who lands on a hotel balcony. He is a gentleman gives her a t-shirt, that swallows her up, and his cell and watches as she disappears without an explanation. Soon he will find himself HOT AND BADGERED by a situation that will either win him a mate or kill him.

Charlie is a honey badger. A survivor who has for years protected her sisters, who aren't really blood, but family none-the-less. She finds herself once again needing to protect her little family, but she is also butting heads with a protection specialist. Yeah, right, like he could do a better job than she, but he is a sexy beast so maybe he can try to hang around.

HOT AND BADGERED is in a word -- hilarious. You have the Dunn family, who are especially good at taking charge and making people do what they want, and the MacKilligan sisters, who are simply crazy and you have the background for most of the characters of this book. To read HOT AND BADGERED, as with all of Shelly Laurenston's books, you have you have to be prepared for anything because that is easily what happens.

Charlie is the protector of the sisters, Stevie and Max are younger, and she has always been the one to keep them from killing each other or someone else and keep their crazy father away from them. There is a great scene where Berg's sister handles the father, sorry you will have to read it to know what I mean. Berg, knows crazy, he's a grizzly and a triplet after all, and it was fun to watch as Charlie realized he was OK with her and her sisters being slightly kookier than his family. This is definitely Charlie and Berg's story, and it does manage to be sweet and steamy along the way. To the romance lover, they might be a bit disappointed in the quantity of those romantic moments, but it is all quality for sure.

HOT AND BADGERED will give you some good laughs, head shaking at the antics of the crazy badgers (and to be honest the grizzlies), a sweet, steamy romance and leave you wanting more.

It’s not every day that a beautiful naked woman falls out of the sky and lands face-first on grizzly shifter Berg Dunn’s hotel balcony. Definitely they don’t usually hop up and demand his best gun. Berg gives the lady a grizzly-sized t-shirt and his cell phone, too, just on style points. And then she’s gone, taking his XXXL heart with her. By the time he figures out she’s a honey badger shifter, it’s too late.

Honey badgers are survivors. Brutal, vicious, ill- tempered survivors. Or maybe Charlie Taylor-MacKilligan is just pissed that her useless father is trying to get them all killed again, and won’t even tell her how. Protecting her little sisters has always been her job, and she’s not about to let some pesky giant grizzly protection specialist with a network of every shifter in Manhattan get in her way. Wait. He’s trying to help? Why would he want to do that? He’s cute enough that she just might let him tag along—that is, if he can keep up . . .
