Jericho Knight isn't going to settle for the routine life his clan insists that he lead. If they had their way, he'd be mated to the obnoxious Ravena Hastings just because she's of royal descent, even though the she-bear does nothing to light his fire. He needs to escape the ordinary, and find out what really turns him on, and what will truly make him happy. Even if it's j ...more

I love HEA! Lots of hot passion, so get ready for those hoses!

Jericho is the Chieftan of his clan and his time is up to mate a pure blood from a neighboring clan, problem is he does not like her at all, he was hoping for a mate he at least liked, but he will do what is expected of him for the good of his clan. He decides that if he's going to sacrifice his liberty, he's at least going to take a mini vacation in Paris before that happens. What he never expected was to find his mate there. Problem

WOW, I finished 'Billion Dollar Bear' needing to have a cool shower. I couldn't put the book down, once I started reading about Jericho his pack NEEDS their Alpha/Chieftain to mate & if they had their way it would lead to mating someone other than his true mate. So he dicides on a whim to go on a trip, PAris is his destination, he hires a tour guide for his trip.... leading him to Becca. Jericho & Becca's fun times around ALL the must see sites in Paris HOOKED me, all the details were amazing. N ...more

Jericho, was a clan chieftain responsible for their business and clan. Went to a vacation, met a tour guide, a half werebear, Becca.... Attraction, romance.... Blah, blah, blah... After a week, Becca was in Chicago, introduced to the moon bay clan, challenged by a another werebear, Ravena - promised to Jericho, a battle... Then Ravena's father, Sergie, recognized Becca as his daughter... Stop the blood match, Becca became Jericho's mate. Finished.

I don't know why it interest me, maybe the cover,

He is a bear shifter that needs a mate. He is trying to get away from it all when he meets a woman who is half bear shifter and half human. She calls to him and he wants to find a way for them to be together. He also has to overcome her fears.

I really enjoyed the story and the characters. He is such a strong alpha and he really knows what he wants. She is fearful of taking on this alpha but the attraction is very strong.

I am voluntarily reviewing a copy I received.

This wasn’t a story that’s going to stick with me. It was a fun, mostly light story, good for pure entertainment. It was sweet to watch Jericho and Becca get to know one another. Though, Jericho already being in the process of contracting a marriage with another woman did make me view him in a less flattering light. Becca’s big reveal was a bit of a surprise, but not terribly shocking.

Not a fan of the cover of the book. Not sure what it is but it made me read this book months after I purchased it. However, as they say 'don't judge a book by its cover' this was a good read. I look forward to other books by Catherine Vale.

Mediocre storytelling isn't improved by incorrect use of punctuation, thin plots, and lackluster description. However, I did finish the book, which justifies a 3-star review. Overall, the two stories aren't terrible, but neither are they very good.

A very intense and passionate shifter love story. The characters make this story, very lively and very passionate shifter clans.
Mar 21, 2016 rated it it was amazing

The story focuses on; BECCA, a sexy, curvy, sassy, whiskey-eyed beautiful half-breed were-bear, and tour guide; JERICHO, the strikingly gorgeous heart-stirring blue-eyed were-bear, and Chieftain of the Moon Bay Clan.

What you'll find in this story; a cast of remarkably impressive and engaging characters, spectacular story-line, picturesque and powerful vivid scene descriptions, phenomenal banter, camaraderie, gripping suspense, action, life-threa

I cannot imagine what it was like for Jericho Knight. Here he was Chieftain of the Moon Bay Clan. He had obligations. He was to find a worth mate. He must continue his bloodline for his clan. That is such a heavy burden to bear. He wanted love but it seems that is not in his future.

Jericho was promised to Ravena of the Kamchatka Clan. Though she was very beautiful she was very cold in personality. Being around her was like pouring a bucket of ice water over you. Jericho was hating the thought o

Catherine never fails to grab your heart with her stories!!

Alpha Jericho is preparing for a date he does not want to go on. Emerson his second-in-command wants to see him mated to a royal were-bear the clan feels would be perfect for him. Ravena had always struck him as a bit cold and calculating, but maybe she was playing a part. His parents had fought, and he wanted his cubs to be raised in a loving household. Stressed over the decision which must be made, Jericho heads to Paris for a break.

Recommends it for: PNR readers who love Bears and Curvy Women
As always, Catherine Vale delivers! Her characters have personality, spunk, and a way of drawing you in that makes you want to cheer for the hero and heroine, and root when they overcome their obstacles and villains. While there is no villain, per se, in this story, Ravena is definitely not a character you’d consider as likeable. That’s one of the best things about Catherine Vale’s storytelling. She doesn’t need a lot of words to give you a description of each character so you can very easily ge ...more

Both Books Are Fun Reads

This story is about a clan alpha who is going to marry for the sake of his people. He decides to take a vacation before he offers for someone's hand. She is a half breed and she works for a company that gives tours in Paris. Said alpha hires the company and she is his tour guide. There is instant attraction when they meet once she gets past her initial fear because he a full blooded bear shifter. This story has a little violence and jealousy. Enjoy I did.

Ashley Martinez (ilovebooksandstuffblog)
A furry fun fantastic read. I really enjoyed this story. A billionaire were-bear chieftain has a duty to his clan to mate with a strong she-bear. Only the one chosen for him isn't the one he wants. Can love overcome all obstacles and really conquer all.
The characters were fun to read. I loved the tension, sass and passion.
The plot was engaging, well paced and sexy. I can't wait to read more by this author.
I received a arc copy in exchange for an honest review.

Catherine Vale creates great shifter romances. Likable characters and great plots. I loved everything about this book from beginning to end. Jericho is a hot blooded male werebear, who is been all work for years. Becca is a half shifter living in Paris. When they meet the attraction is instantaneous. The fur really flies when Becca comes to America. The author gives us suspense and romance, an amazing combination

While I like this book well enough it was your typical PNR. My only issue was that surprising twist at the end all this time Becca didn't think she had any family only to find out that she does because she didn't know much about her shifter side I really wish we had more backstory about her mom. The ending just felt really rush. Overall enjoyable and entertaining read. I voluntarily read and review this ARC I haven't been compensated in any way.

Getting forced into a marriage he doesn't want he takes off for Paris and finds a she half-bear he wants to claim as his mate. But when push comes to shove they find out she is more then they thought she was.

I received an advanced copy of this book for an honest review. This is a great story by the author. The characters were amazing and so was the story line.

This book was a good read. I liked the characters, but it did not make me say "one please!" Jericho Knight seemed hot...I don't know I just felt like something was missing. Therefore I gave this book a strong 3 stars. If you are looking for an easy read with copious amount of sex then this book is for you.

Two great stories for the price of one

Great story with a bonus book attached. I have to admit while I enjoyed both stories I liked the bonus book just a tad more. It had more action and more tension even if there was a bit of a cliffhanger at the end.
