Shifters defend their mates to the death...
Bear shifter Darius Longton never expected to find his mate in his favorite coffee shop, but one sniff of her scent in the air is all it takes for his bear to know the truth. This delicious, sinfully curvy redhead is his.
Too bad she's human and far too fragile for his volatile bear.
Holly Trent cannot understand the instant attraction she feels for this man. One look from his heavy-lidded eyes is all it takes to set her knickers aflame with lust. However, she will not be another notch on his bedpost, no matter how much his voice alone makes her want to sink to her knees.
But when a customer gets heavy with her, everything changes. Darius's defense of her places them both in terrible danger. Thrown headfirst into shifter council politics, it falls to Holly to save her mate.
Be Warned: BDSM, anal sex, spanking

So, what would you think if you heard or read, "Horny bear shifter wants to devour you." To me, my first thought is, well, YES! Well, okay, maybe that's just me but guessing that's a big fat, no, especially after reading Doris O'Connor's CLAIMING HIS HUMAN, which is all sorts of beary, yumminy sexiness and more.
In case you had yet to know, Darius is a grizzly bear and the "sinfully curvy redhead" human, Holly, is his mate.
I'm a huge fan of paranormal stories that mix in that oh so human element. Whether it's the surprise at finding out there are more than humans in the world or the fireworks that ensue when they get together. Or maybe it's that spark of sass coming from the human females that always puts a huge smile on my face along with some wide grins, giggles and laugh out louds that may spark a bit of a frown from those around me who aren't in the know. Admittedly, that sass seems to be a definite mainstay in this author's stories and I love it.
Loves: The sparks that fly between Darius and Holly were grand fun and the sex scenes could singe the hair off a grizzly's back. And, I'm also a fan of the backstory with all the politics and protocols. Did I mention how much I enjoyed Holly's feistiness because that "bears" repeating?
Dislikes: Suddenly no longer finding myself a fan of geese.
CLAIMING HIS HUMAN is story 6 in the Projects series and each one is a standalone but you know…you should read all of them so you can fully immerse yourself into all things sexy.

CLAIMING HIS HUMAN is the 6th book in Doris O' Connor's The Projects series and let me tell you, you'll all be happy it's back! Our shifter du jour is Darius James Longton, an alpha, dominant bear shifter. He finds his mate at a cafe in Covent Garden (London), a human named Holly who works there.
He has to work to impress his little human, who relocated to London to care for her mother. Holly has no idea shifters exist until a jealous ex causes a violent situation that Holly gets thrust into the middle of. Darius has no choice but to take responsibility for Holly to protect their secret. Will this give him the chance to finally claim his human? Grab yourself a copy and find out.
I absolutely loved this book! So much going on with this storyline and Darius is a hot, alpha, uber-dominant bear who is a wonderfully written book boyfriend that any woman (or man) would just swoon over. Holly is a tough cookie who is likable, submissive, but most definitely no pushover. The side characters are all just as interesting no matter the length of their appearance. Just a great read from Doris O'Connor that you'll want in your keeper pile to read over and over again.
