His Teddy Bear by Eve Langlais

I’m coming to love Eve Langlais’ writing: the humor, the clever insertions of unusual shifters, playing with established tropes and the sex.  Never forget the sex- steamy, sultry, and hot, it really is another level of connecting her characters to one another.  In His Teddy Bear she does it again with a smart, determined and clever heroine, Teddy, a werebear.

Starting with a “Shifter Mixer” where single and unmated shifters hope to finding their mates, Reece, a werewolf, catches the scent that speaks to him and him alone.  Approaching the nexus of the scent, he comes face to face with Teddy, curvy dark Teddy, the complete opposite of his type. Reece, like many men, completely bumbled the introduction and Teddy has no interest in a mate who doesn’t like who she is HOW she is.  Shifters rarely have that sort of reaction in any story that I have read, and Langlais gives us a heroine who won’t stand for the expected, she wants it all.  And Reece will have to work, damn hard, to prove that she is not only his mate, but THE woman for him.

While others may take offense to the storyline and the reactions of Reece to the curvy bear, I found Teddy to be someone that you wanted to know, and hang out with. She is smart and determined, and wants to have it all – as we all should.  And there is absolutely nothing wrong with her demanding it all.  And when Reece comes to his senses and tracks her down, it is interesting to see the lengths he goes to in proving that not only does he want his mate, but he wants HER as his mate. While not subjecting us to a ton of esteem issues as often happens in stories with larger heroines, Teddy is solid and has confidence in herself, but her seeing friends and family hurt by infidelity laid at the feet of size and ‘fated mates’ issues, she is cautious and wants to feel secure in the man she shares her life with.

This story has everything: characters that develop and grow, a relationship that is based on more than a sniff hello, and hangups and situations that are easy to relate to no matter your perspective. A novella length story, it is packed full of entertainment with some seriously sexy heat and emotion to wrap up the package neatly.

All he wants is his chubby Teddy bear.

Chubby Teddy, who is ironically enough a bear shifter, has finally found her mate. There’s one big problem though. He doesn’t like what he sees.

Reece never imagined his chosen mate would be a woman with extra curves, but all it takes is one taste to realize the benefits and turn his world upside down.

Their arguments are many, their lust for each other fiery, but while he’s ready to for the next step, Teddy keeps running. What will it take to win her trust and heart?

And an even better question; will they ever make it to a bed?

About Eve Langlais

Hello, my name is Eve. I'm a stay at home mom who works as a webmistress/customer service rep and in between juggling my three kids, hubby, and housework, I write really raunchy stuff--usually with werewolves lol.

I was born in British Columbia, but being a military brat, I have lived a little bit everywhere--Quebec, New Brunswick, Labrador, Virginia (USA) and finally Ontario. My family and I currently live just outside Ottawa, our nation's capital.

I tend to have a lot of sexual tension in my tales because I think all torrid love affairs start with a tingle in our tummies. And when my characters do finally give in to the needs of their flesh? Well, let's just say, you shouldn't be reading my stuff at work. The door is wide open, explicit and hot. Really, really hot.

I love to write, and while I don't always know what my mind is going to come up with next, I can promise it will be fun, probably humorous and most of all romantic, because I love a HEA.
