Lord of Rage- Jill Monroe (book 2)

Lost and alone, Princess Breena prayed for survival and vengeance for her stolen kingdom. She found both in a woodland cottage...in a dark bear of a man.
The golden-haired beauty had eaten his food and slept in his bed when Osborn found her. Though he wanted to awaken his virgin princess to carnal pleasures, Breena wanted more—including his warrior skills. Skills the once-legendary mercenary had long buried. Now Osborn had a choice—risk his life or deny his princess her fairy-tale ending
Let me start with saying I giggled a little when I realized this story was like Goldie locks and the Three Bears. I've never read anything by Jill Monroe but I will certainly now, I really like how she writes. Since I read the first book in this series I kinda knew what to expect from this story and it did not disappoint. I liked Breena from the beginning, even though I thought she was going to be a spoiled princess who expected everyone to wait on her hand and foot. But surprisingly she is well written and not a spoiled princess at all, she was willing to get in there and do what she could to get back to her realm and help her family & her people. She is a witch and one of her powers is being able to cast dream spells and she is able to put herself in them. For months she dreams about a dark mysterious warrior, her warrior, but she was never able to see his face clearly. The Blood Scorcher attacks her family and she is sent to a different realm, for days she wonders around and stumbles on to a cabin in the woods.
Osborn is a large male Ursan warrior, who lost most of his family during a violent attack. He saved his two younger brothers and over the years did some mercenary work to support them all. Once he had enough of the killing he settled down far away from others and built a cabin in the woods. To his surprise he comes home to a beautiful woman in his bed, he then realizes this is the woman he has been dreaming about for months. He doesn't trust anyone and least of all her even though he is attracted to her and wants her more than his next breath.
This is a pretty fast paced story that happens over several days, first day you meet a grumpy but oh so sexy bear and the last day you love a little less grumpy and a lot sexier bear!!
