any time there is not a human couple on the front of one of these things, i realize how nuanced the audience of romance novels truly is. and now narrow minded i myself am. because why can't a man love a baby bear cub the way he loves a woman? ah, karen, you have some growing up to do...

I’d always sworn I would one day get out of my comfort zone and read a romance novel, and when I chanced upon North Country Man with the adorable bear cub exuding pure love on the cover, I knew my time had come. I actually enjoyed the story, and was pleasantly surprised that this ancient (2002) Harlequin Superomance was literate, funny, and full of interesting characters. It had an absorbing plot, even complete with a villain and a bit of aurora borealis mysticism. All in all, good storytelling. ...more

I thought I had read it before but I couldn't remember if I finished it. Good book, I enjoyed it. The characters did not come together immediately, there was tension but not too much. I would like to read more about her.
(Hard Copy).

Meh. I think this was a re-read, but it was so unmemorable the first time that, well, I had to keep asking myself if I'd already read it or not. It was alright, but it was the same kinda book that I'm realizing I'm way over. Sweet, animal-loving slighly overweight woman with heart of gold meets man with baggage. Warms his heart, save the world together, love conquers all. Blegh.

I couldn't get interested in neither the plot nor the characters, even admiting that they - the couple, the secondary characters, the animals - were lovable.

Got some great quotes like "she got a boyfriend named ... and a dog named Blackie," overall a dud, trial novel experience

There was never any doubt that Carrie Antilla would have a creative career. As a two-year-old, she imagined dinosaurs on the lawn. By six it was witches in the bedroom closet. Soon she was designing elaborate paper-doll wardrobes and writing stories about Teddy the Bear. Eventually she graduated to short horror stories and oil paints. She was working as an artist and a part-time librarian when she ...more
