Bear shifter, Emilie Williams is a Virgo through and through. Not only is she reliable, intelligent, and modest, but she’s also overly meticulous, cautious, and cranky at times–all qualities that tend to get her in trouble.

Who says opposites don't attract? As a matter of fact, sometimes they can be good for one another.

Emilie Williams lives a very boring life with a sweet and boring human fiance that doesn't know she's a bear shifter, but that's the way she's always wanted it because she wants to be in control. Until he shoots her on one of her shifts and she is sent running into the arms of Officer Carter Bennett, a wolf shifter that quite literally takes a breath away. Problem is Carter is the opposite of her sw

Such an amazing book. K.C. never disappoints. This book is another example of that. I love her way with words and how she gives life to her characters. I feel like Emilie and I are very similar, so it was a lot of fun to read myself as the heroine. Keep doing your thing, K.C.!!!

This is the first book in this series that I have read. It is a sweet story of Emilie and Carter. Emilie is a bear shifter and Carter is a local policeman who happens to be a wolf shifter. They are very compatible and after a few small misunderstandings and some major miscommunication it looks like they will have the happy ever after they deserve. This book sets some groundwork for future books in the series.

The Truth in Love: Virgo is the latest instalment in the Zodiac Shifters series. Emilie is the Virgo of the story, going through the motions of being happy with her (human) fiance. Things get interesting for her when he finds her shifting and, not realising that it is her, shoots her. He then declares Emilie is dead. She, being completely alive, makes her way to where her brother lives. She has managed to call him before she arrives, so he knows the story of what has happened to her, and makes i ...more

Not my favourite in the series so far but still a good read.

Emilie is a cranky, uptight bear shifter. But when her unassuming and very human fiancee sees the tail end of her shift, he thinks the bear ate her and shoots her! She makes her way towards her twin brother and with the help of his neighbouring Wolf Pack, they set her up with a home, a job and ...bonus a hottie neighbour!

Carter is Emilie's neighbour and landlord. He sees little of the reclusive beauty and has to basically corner her to

Extremely impressed with this book. Although part of a series it is completely stand-alone, so whether you are new to Zodiac Shifters or an avid fan you won't be disappointed and wondering who the characters are.
An extremely novel concept of the book, in this era of shifter books, is there are no raunchy scenes. It is a credit to the author that they have given enough information for you to fill in the blanks as still come away satisfied with the scene. As a reader who really enjoys erotic parts

I came into this book thinking it seemed like a thing i would love and of course i was absolutely right. the first bit surprised me on how good it was,and I've always wondered what happened if someone saw the tail end of a shifter shifting. poor em that seemed like the worst days ever but she was very resourceful and i liked how she managed on her own in the wild despite being injured. i sure couldn't have done what she did but K.C.s characters were really developed and i really got into how em ...more

A great read about a bear shifter, Emilie, who gets shot by her fiancé right after she has shifted. He doesn't know she's the bear. She runs away & goes to where her brother is. When she gets there she shifts back to human & meets her new landlord while she's stark naked. After she starts building a new life with Carter, her landlord, cop & sexy wolf shifter, she finds out that her fiancé has been arrested for her murder. I won't spoil the rest of the story, but I loved the ending. I ...more

The Truth in Love certainly has Virgo's number. Stubborn should be their first, last, and middle name. I should know, I am a Virgo. It appears if you're a bear shifter it's just as bad. Because Emilie is stubborn to a fault, luckily for her Carter has patience to spare. I love this return to the Adirondack Pack, or pack adjacent. The characters have so much depth and it rings true. The chemistry between Emilie and Carter is titillating, their romance laced with angst and insecurity, but undernea ...more

4.5 STARS

Danger, life-threatening moments, jealousy, a bit of drama, romance, make this a thrilling story.

Emilie a bear shifter is independent, sassy and loves her alone time. Carter a sultry wolf shifter has finally met the woman that has captured his heart, however, jealousy and his foolish ego may keep them apart.

Loved this story as it was entertaining, intriguing and a wonderful addition to the Zodiac Series. If you treasure shifter stories this is a fabulous book for your library. {I

The Truth In Love is the twenty-second book written in the Zodiac series. While you can read this as a standalone, there are plenty of books in the series for you to read as well. There are adult themes so definitely 18+.

The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat all of that info here. Overall, this book is about Emilie and Carter. As usual not everyone and everything is as it seems. While the storyline is fairly predictable, there are enough twists and turns to

Very good story. Both Emilie and Carter are stubborn but these two are meant to be together. Carter knows how to deal with her personality he is just a tad--well, full of pride, lol. Emilie is insecure & lonely so realistically like most women that have self-doubt, self-worth issues, she hibernates...lol except she really is a bear shifter so that's literal. Very interesting series, can't wait to read what happens next with these shifters. I love how united they are, once I started I didn't ...more

I was totally shocked by this story. I thought it would be the run of the mill shifter story, which I love. But this book is so much more. It was full of emotion and well-written characters. Emilie and Carter have brilliant chemistry. I could have spent weeks in this world. I really enjoyed it. This is the first I've read from this author and it won't be the last. I requested an ARC of this book so I could post an honest review.

Emilie is a bear shifter that has been shot and relocates to keep her identity a secret and to give herself time to heal.
Carter is a wolf shifter and a cop who wants emilie but when her past comes back is messes things up and that's when the drama picks up. Carter thinks he should walk away but can he?
Lots of drama and twists in the story. The characters are great. Highly enjoyable. Don't miss this one shifter fans
Voluntarily reviewed a copy and I honestly enjoyed it.

A paranormal romantic comedy suspense is how I would describe this book. Emilie just happens to be on the run from her fiance' who thinks she is dead and then she meets her fated mate butt naked definitely unintentionally which totally blows her/his mind a policeman name Carter her apartment manager. Great book, loved the characters. I was given a copy of book as a gift from author. I am providing an honest review without obligation.

Amazing hilarious book about shifters

This book is about a wolf and bear shifters fall in love. It is relatable for our time because it shows how life can be complicated when something is misunderstood.

The characters are relatable, interesting, and hilarious at times. The storyline is intriguing and highly imaginative. I would highly recommend this book to readers.

Emilie was such a great character to read about. The story was had a unique spin and had a great flow to it. Carter was also a great character to read about and was equally likeable. Hot chemistry and sex with a HEA. Secondary characters were also likeable and well developed. All in all a fantastic read with shifters that kept the pages turning. Loved it! I am giving my voluntary review of an arc I received.

A sweet romance where a stubborn bear meets her man. The main character, Emilie, really is an independent woman. She gets shot and decides she’s okay. No need to tell her brother, who would of stopped everything to help her. That would be asking for help and no way would she do that. But one wolf may make her rethink things. That is if she doesn’t lock him out.

I voluntarily read and reviewed a copy of the book.

As always, I totally enjoy this author's books. I fell in love with the Adirondack pack from the first book so I totally loved seeing some of the characters. Now, I'm worried about Lee but hopefully the author won't make us wait too long to see what happens to her. As for this book, totally loved it and can't wait until the next!!

Thanks to the author for providing me a copy of this book. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book with no compensation.

Emilie is a shifter who finds her self in a bad situation so she calls on her brother to help out. She doesn't bargain on getting help from the new sexy shifter Carter in the town she moves to. This is a great story with a sweet ending. I love this series and this book falls in line with it and hints at a couple others. I volunteered to read this book.

This was my first read where the female was the bear and I thought it was really good. Even with this being a later book in a series I was able to read it with no problems and not feel like I was lost. I like when I can do something like that and then go back and read the books that I have missed.

Emilie enjoys spending time by herself and does not need or want to be social. Her fiance makes that easy and their relationship is low maintenance, no passion. Carter makes her want things she never knew she wanted, but he is impulsive and difficult for her to read. A fun read.
