Gene only has one thing on his mind, vengeance, until Vicky crashes into his life.

When Vicky accidentally slides into the side of a polar bear, she doesn’t expect to fall in love. Eaten yes, perhaps used as a chew toy, but become the object of a bear’s affection and lust?

Crazy! Almost as crazy as the fact the polar bear turns out to be a man. A sexy man. A man who growls, and roars and does everything he can to chase her away.

Only to come back.

Poor Gene. After the pain and betrayal he suffered in the war all he wants is vengeance against the brothers who left him behind. But he’s confused when instead of wanting to punish him for his evil acts, they offer him forgiveness.

As if that weren’t annoying enough, the cutest geek he ever met—with caramel kissed skin covering a lush, rounded figure and wearing the sexiest dark rimmed glasses—won’t leave him alone. Or more like, he can’t seem to stop following her. And it isn’t just because someone is out to hurt her.

He wants her. But does he want her more than vengeance?

Welcome to Kodiak Point, where the wildlife might wear clothes, but animal instinct rules the heart.

paranormal ROMANCE BADBOY snarky

Polar Bared is book three in a humorous paranormal romance shifter series by Canadian author Eve Langlais.  In this book, we have an anti-hero Gene, a polar bear and former military guy suffering from PTSD.  He blames his military unit for his capture and inability to rescue him.  He is set on vengeance.

Vicky is a heavier woman who had recently lost her husband.  She is independently wealthy, so she doesn’t really need to work.  She decides to go do research on polar bears up in northern Canada.  She isn’t quite the adventurous type.  She wears glasses, is clumsy and overweight, which doesn’t make things easy for her in the Arctic.  Oh, and she faints a lot.  This doesn’t bode well for her when she slips and slides down the ice right into the side of a scared, grouchy polar bear.

This is a series that is funny, sexy, suspenseful, action packed and did I mention funny.  I mean you have a gruff, sexy, scared old polar bear chasing after a geeky, overweight, clumsy heiress.  They are running from some really bad guys chasing them.  The bad guys came at them with were-rabbits.

“Evil bunnies attack. Did they smack you in the shins with their big, floppy ears?”

“Not to mention, a rabid rabbit bit my leg. A wolf, that’s respectable. A caribou gore, a fine battle wound, but getting chewed on by a bloody bunny, I won’t have it.”

This is a third book in the series and while you would probably be okay if you read the series out of order, I think you would get a lot more from reading them in order.  They are all great books.  Book two even has a moose shifter for the hero, so you’ll want to check that out.

I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. My favorite paranormal creatures are shifters, doesn’t matter the flavor.

  1. Not ever heard of this series but it sounds like a lot of fun and something I would like to read. Great review! 🙂

  2. Polar bears and bunnies?! Wild. Lol. Sometimes, if I take the book at face value, I have a hard time taking it seriously. Especially when evil bunny rabbits are involved. But I guess, I have to read it before I cast judgments. Lol.

  3. The bunnies are never actually on the page, they are just mentioned as being part of the fight. It is a suspenseful story with humor mixed in. I personally love how the author mixes in rarely used animals for her shifters. The hero of book two is a moose.

  8. Eve Langlais is the bomb! I love her twisted sense of humor, and her shifters / aliens / paranormal creatures are always very, very hot 🙂
    I can’t wait to start this series, she always manages to get me all hot and bothered, AND she makes me laugh out loud.
    Great review, Melanie.

    • Thanks. I’ve yet to try her aliens. I need to get on those soon. I love her shifters and Princess of Hell series. She always makes me laugh a lot.

      • Oh, Melanie, her Alien Abduction series is awesome. Also, the aliens are tall, muscular, all alpha, and PURPLE!! Did you know purple is my favorite color? 😛 yummy guys and lots of great laughs.
        Princess of Hell is great, too, as well as Welcome to Hell, and also her other series. Can you tell I’m a huge fan?

  10. LOL! Your quotes made me smile remembering the scene. This pair was a great couple. I love the series too.

  11. Oh little squee-s over here. I can’t wait to go back and read the whole series. I’ve only read the Christmas novella and it was so fun. Hopefully over Christmas I’ll be able to tackle these 🙂

  13. It”s nice to see it’s possible to read out of order. But I confess that the author don’t really attract me… maybe because of all the mixed reviews I saw. Maybe one day.

  14. Not every story/author is for everyone. Hopefully, I can hook you up next time. 🙂

  15. Great to hear that there was humor along with the adventure and romance which sounds well done as well.

  16. I haven’t read this series yet but I do enjoy Eve’s books. I don’t know if I’d like this one though. The characters sound clique and I would probably get annoyed with Vicky. I don’t mind a little vulnerability in my characters but I would probably want to push her off an iceberg while reading this.

    • I would recommend trying book one. That heroine is a human that goes after a Kodiak bear with a frying pan. She doesn’t cow to anything. If you like then keep trying. This series does have all the humor you expect from Eve. I think that is the only reason this heroine worked for me.

  17. Okay, this sound completely fun and sexy and I’ve not yet had the pleasure of meeting a shape shifting polar bear in my reads! Maybe this needs to be changed. 🙂

  18. AWww it definitely sounds like there’s going to be a lot of humour in this one and I’m glad the heroine is overweight and isn’t your typical beautiful heroine you know? Interesting highlight!

    • I love that this author does that as well. She has had several heroines that are overweight and dealing with it just the way that many women in the real world have to.

  19. Great review, I really want to read her books because of the strange shifters and pairings she uses.

  20. I haven’t heard of this series before now but it sounds like a lot of fun and something I would enjoy.

    A wonderful review Melanie 🙂

  21. I Love this series! Eve is such a wonderful “Just gonna relax and read something fun today” author, and these stories are really great. I am glad that Gene is finally going to have a chance to get past his pain! 😉
