    I chose to read and review this book. I love shifters with BBW. Bears are my number two favorite shifters. We can all relate to these characters. I enjoyed it a lot. The main characters are sweet. It starts off in one direction and then reaches another. I loved the drama suspense action romance steamy sparks that fly between them. We can all see ourselves at some point in their shoes, not the shifter part but the emotional one where can love really survive or reality comes fast. I recommend this one it will keep you captivated all until the end.

    Excitement and romance, tigers and bears come out the woods in this riveting shifter romance. Denali Alpha, James Roark knew his marriage to the beautiful sharp tongued tigress, Laura Hisch is just a ruse to for her real mission, but his hunger and obsession only has one cure, making the sweet stubborn werecat his wife for real. Will James be able to turn a sham of marriage into something beautiful or will loving Laura lead to all out war? This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on their toes with lots of suspense, drama, action and romance. The author describes the story with well written details that capture the imagination and the action scenes are believable and exciting. The strong compelling characters are easily related to and grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning.The attraction between Laura and James radiates lots of red hot passion from every page and the sex scenes are hot enough to scorch the reader. The relationship however, gets off to a bad start and it takes a lot of sweat and hard work to even get to an understanding. There is a lot of prejudice between the bears and tigers which makes for some emotional turmoil, dangerous attitudes and downright meanness. The reader can’t help but get caught up in the story as the romance progresses and tension builds as danger escalates not only threatening the fragile truce between the tigers and bears, but from a jealous she bear out to cause a massive amount of trouble.The author has created a story that grips the heart as this couple struggle to find a way to destroy old prejudices and find their happily ever after. I must say that I really enjoyed the jealous she bear’s punishment (she deserves it) and the great ending to this fascination story. I was thoroughly engrossed in the story from the very beginning, though there were a couple of instances where the scenes shifted a little abruptly, but they were minor in the overall enjoyment of the story.

    I was gifted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Laura Hisch is like the daughter and only child of the tiger alpha of Tiger Bay. Considered royalty among her clan it is her responsibility to uphold the old treaty with an arranged marriage clause. The problem is the marriage is to the rival bear clan alpha James Roark. What self respecting tigress would want to marry a man she considered to be an animal? Her father has a plan to take out the bear clan. All she has to do is stay married in name only for the next month. Laura is determined to do what she has to for her clan no matter how much she wants to run.Alpha James Roark was willing to play along with this farce of a marriage until he saw Laura walking down the isle. From his first look at her he knew he wanted her. He wasn't willing to just have a marriage in name with her. But could he convince her that he was worth the risk of going against the prejudices of both their clans?Although she tries to fight her attraction for him, Laura soon realizes that she wants James just as fiercely and needs to do whatever she can to stop her father. James decides that he will do anything to keep Laura as his mate.There were a few twists and turns thrown in throughout this book. I found that I liked that this wasn't your typical were mate romance. It wasn't clear from the beginning that they were fated to be together. I enjoyed James' personality. Even though he was prickly like his bear he was still pretty solid most of the time. I would have liked Laura to be a bit more aggressive. After all she is a tiger. Overall it was a quick, enjoyable read.

    Laura Hirsch heard what her dad said but she couldn't believe she had to marry a BEAR! No matter that is was a pretend marriage to make the bears drop their guard so he can take their land as Tiger Bay needed lumber and the bears had plenty! So she was needed to be his Trojan Horse and send him reports? As she walked down the aisle with her dad, her knees shook wen she saw his size. As the daughter of the Alpha of Tiger Bay, Alaska she had to think about the good this marriage was to her clan, they needed peace and lumber the bears had in abundance. Her tiger snarled to break out but as she looked up, and up, and up, she fainted in front of him.......Denali Alpha, James Roark, knew his marriage would bring peace to the two clans that waged war against the others for generations, He was tired of wars and never his clans could defeat the tigers as they were much much stronger and fiercer in battle, yet when his bride fainted before him, he could help but to catch her and she felt good in his arms.A. T. Mitchell spins a steamy tale of two species trying to help their clans, but end up fighting their attraction and hatred their clans had for each other. With her power hungry dad and the old elders of the bear clan could they bring piece to Alaska?

    Read and Reviewed for WeLoveKink. this is a book Curves For HimFamily, duty and honor for the clan... will have one doing things, we dont want. Even when the not wanting is marrying not only outside the clan, but outside of the breed. Treaties and alliances are a fickle thing and need to be handled with care. Now a sassy tiger is marrying a big bear... and it supposed to be in name only... did anyone tell James that? Tensions run high enough over land rights and such, a age old tradition of marrying inner clan, because the “gods” deem it that way. The couple of the past has only found bigotry, disconent and saddness. How will a tiger from Tiger bay and a bear from Denali because to erase years of prejudice and contempt from each of their clans. I love shifters! Ive never heard of this author before so.. color me happy. The story content was good, and was a decent length, the characters and story meshed well. Some tension, a bit of a scare, and some hot scenes rounds out a book worthy of reading.

    **ARC provided by the Author in return for an honest reviewI really enjoyed this book although I wish it was longer I could not put it down once I started there was plenty going on Laura is a tiger shifter and James is a Bear shifter and their clans have entered them into an arranged marriage to keep peace between them. But what James doesn't realise is that Laura has been sent there with an ulterior motive. But as soon as Laura see's James she lusts after him as much as he does for her but she doesnt want anything to do with him.After a horrific landslide experience Laura realises that she really does like James and they consummate their marriage.There are plenty of things that then try and rip them apart but their love holds strong There were times during this book I laughed, held my breath and wanted to hit someone but it all made for an interesting story(view spoiler)[ I love how the kids turned out they would look so cute(hide spoiler)]This is the first book I have read from this Author but will now have to get some more of them

    This is a cute quick read shifter book that just makes me love shifter bears even more. The Alpha bear falls for the Alpha tiger's daughter and the charade of their arranged marriage falls apart. James sees Laura and just knows this is women, tigress, for him to love. Laura feels something for him but is on a mission from father. She is torn between the loyalty to her clan and the sudden feelings she has for James. These two fall hard and the sex, which is taboo between the clans, is hot.Since it is a quick read it is fast paced. There are several twists, turns, and interferences (like a very manipulative she-bear) that will keep you wondering if they will get their HEA. I did have a bit of a problem switching from one scene to the next sometimes but this was my first A.T. Mitchell book so I was not familiar with the writing style. I would love for the book to have been longer and will look for more books from this author. I received a free copy of this book for my honest opinion.

    I was given this book for an honest review for author A. T. Mitchell. Once I started to read this book I just had to finish it, it was so good.Laura was the daughter of the Alpha from Tiger Bay and she was getting married to the Alpha of Denali. She only agreed to the marriage so that her father could get his hands on the land but little did she know how things would change for her. James was not really looking forward to getting married but he would do anything to bring peace to his den and the tigers pack but what he found in Laura changed everything he knew.This book has love, lies, betrayal, vengeance and sex. The story line and the characters worked so great that the story line flowed so smoothly from start to finish.This book is for any mature paranormal romance book lover who enjoys it all while they read. I have read other paranormal romance books by A.T. Mitchell and I think this book is the authors best work yet.

    I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. This book is an amazing story about love and acceptance. James is willing to do almost anything to make his marriage work but when Laura begins to fight with him and is constantly rude to him he just isn't sure what to do. He sees desire in his wife's eyes but he isn't sure what else is there. Laura knows she is in a sham of a marriage but the more time she spends with James she isn't sure how she feels. She knows she is sent there to help out the tiger clan they are going to attack the Denali werebear clan and take the land that they feel is rightfully theirs. The more she gets to know James however the more her heart is divided. There are other players out to make sure this does not happen as well. This book is an amazing reflection of the problem with sometimes having to make some hard choices in life. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone.

    This is a Hot new twist on Shifter Romance keeps you reading until the end.I like this story because it started out with the main characters coming together being a little put out about a fake marriage even though they both felt something between them that they didn't really want step into but James was honest and made it plain to how fated they were for each other. Hot passion and she was hooked, a different shifter story from the ones I've read before. James and Lara really kept you on your toes from beginning to end . The suspense was a page turner. Lara's father was trouble with a capital T along withe some other problems, trusting the a parent you love to do right by you and you to them is sometimes a hard road to follow. Lara realized that her love for James out weighted her Father's schemes. (Yea! for love).This Shifter Romance was a little short but definitely a great read for me if you like this type of book you will really like this.

    sometimes when you read a lot of paranormal romance it can seem like there is nothing more out there that you have not already seen. i can honestly say that A.T. Mitchell is that something new. this is the second book that i have read from this author and it was as different as night and day. i loved this book, with the difference between shifters and the undercurrents that ran thru the clans this would not have turned out well if the Hero(a werebear) was not such a wonderful and stubborn bear in love when it came to his heroine. if you like shifter books and the against all odds romance then grab this book and dig in for the duration. go ahead and hibernate with it for awhile, i can guarantee once you start reading you won't want to put it down any more than a bear would give up his Honey! LOL!

    Very cute book. Reads really fast, read it in one go.I can't say I liked Laura in the beginning, she was spoiled and it showed.I liked James right off the bat. He was strong and beautiful and knew what he wanted, and that was Laura.It wasn't until Laura finally gave in to her feelings and excepted them that I started to like her.For this being just a quick read, there is actually quite a bit packed into the story, I was surprised.One flaw that I wish A.T. Mitchell would work on was, when a new time frame started up I wish she would divide it with some spaces or a Marker or something, rather then just continuing on in the very next paragraph directly below the last sentence. It makes it a little hard to change gears and realize it was the next day.Otherwise, again this was a cute read, and I look forward to more stories from Mitchell.

    I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review and I honestly loved this book. A.T. Mitchell is a wonderful writer anyway, but this book was truly wonderful.Shifters are, by nature, territorial and all about "My Kind!" Well, in this book, that distinction between "My Kind" line has been blurred. A tiger shifter and a bear shifter find true happiness when a tradition of inter-marriage becomes more than just a front. They are actually attracted to one another and have to get passed the prejudice instill by their families, well, at least the tigeress does. The bear is all for mixes "his" with "hers"!Nevertheless, I think all will enjoy who truly love a great romance, with a little action and an "Oh my gosh" moment quite like nothing else.

    I Married a Bear is another fantastic bbw shifter para-rom by AT Mitchell.This book drew me in at the description, and kept my attention til the last word. It was that good! An original storyline, and characters that you love, and others you love to hate. This book had it all, including hot sex scenes! I have to admit that this genre is my absolute favorite to read. And as I devoured this book, I realized it only increased my love of it.** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **The thoughts and opinions are mine, and solely mine.I have loved every book written by this author, and very highly recommend this newest one.

    Amazing story!!!!I Married a Bear tells the story of Laura (a tiger) and James (an alpha bear) being forced into a politically arranged marriage. Both had to rethink how they had always perceived the other species to be and finally allowed themselves to fall in love with each other. Then having to overcome prejudices, and jealousy added more stress. I laughed at parts, almost cried in others and thoroughly enjoyed reading this book!!! This is one book I will be recommending to others to purchase and read!!! 5 stars to A.T. Mitchell for this amazing book!!!

    Complimentary CopyThis is a great shifter romance. I have a read a few shifter books not always my pick of books but I have always enjoy everyone of A.T.'s books that I have picked up. She has great story plots that keep you on the edge and keeps you guessing which are some of my all time favorites. This story takes on a love that should never happen, two different shifter breads one a tiger and one a bear. Their road bring together to shifter clans that have never gotten alone. Can they over come the guilt that comes with the struggles to make this work?

    I was given an ARC In exchange for an honest review. Honestly this is one of the best Paranormal Shifter books I've ever read! Laura knows exactly the type of alpha her father is and realizes quickly his plans will fail. James starts to fall for his new wife, by arranged marriage, almost immediately, but is smart enough to know something is off about her. And the character of Hannah is out to cause trouble any way she can.I Married A Bear had a lot of action and romance that kept the pages turning quickly. This is a book that I would highly recommend to every fan of Paranormal romances.

    I requested a review copy from this author because I thought the blurb for this book sounded great. I wasn't disappointed. This is the first book I've read by this author and I look forward to reading more. The heroine/hero were both likable characters. They respected each other and put their relationship before that of their packs. The book was fast paced and enjoyable. On a personal note, I do wish the author would have used less bad language because it was distracting. Overall I did enjoy the book and do recommend it.

    Wonderful new take on Bears and tigersGreat book, fun and externally enjoyable to read. I love when I read an originally story line about shifter like this book is. Full of action and turmoil as well as some good old fashion hot sex, love and betrayal. Marriage in name only (or is it?) Treaties between Bears and Tigers. Betrayal from within and from the outside. “Not” your typical I meet you and you’re my fated mate story. Well written and extremely entertaining to read. I received an eBook copy from the author for purpose of an honest review and was not compensated

    I received an ARC eBook in exchange for an honest review! I enjoyed this fast-paced, steamy paranormal romance between weretiger Laura and werebear James very much! It was a fun, interesting and decidedly hot, sexy romance with plenty of angst and turmoil to keep you guessing what was going to happen next! Loved the HEA full chapter ending!! The only thing that would have made this better was to have paragraph spacing between large time jumps in the story! Otherwise, it was deliciously hot!! 4.5 stars!!!

    I was gifted with book for an honest review. I always give an honest review because there are too many good books out there without wasting my and your time. This is the first book of A. T. Mitchell's that I have read. I will be reading more of his shifter books. . This story is about an arranged marriage between a tiger and a grizzly bear. In the first few pages you find out the tiger, Laura, has unexpected feelings for James although they have never met before. You find out that Laura's father is hatching a scheme that the bears will not like.

    Hot, Sexy Bear!!!What a refreshing new take on the shifter world...I loved all the mouthy passion in this hunk of a Bear, he got right to the point, no beating around the bush for James. What a new and awesome couple, never in her dreams did this Tigress imagine the rollercoaster coming her way...James never gave Laura a chance to even think about it, just get to the chase from the start...No bloody battles, but lots of love and hot passion, oh and a smart thinking Bear..I am in love with this couple and I want to read more about these guys and the cubs.Great book A.T.

    I absolutely fell in love with this book. I love that it is a BBW book as I don't find many of those. James is very protective but not over powering dominant. Laura stands her ground and loves with all her heart. The love between James and Laura is strong enough to endure anything thrown at them. A.T. Mitchell did an excellent job bringing the characters out and making me feel as if I was right there with them.

    I found this to be a fun book but a bit far fetched. The plot was fast paced but the story was a bit odd-the characters seemed to be on one hand very smart but on the other very naive and clueless. There seemed to be gaps in the story-suddenly a doctor was drawing blood? For what purpose...that was all missing. But regardless I read it for fun not to be enlightened and on that it did deliver.

    I loved this book. It was such a different shifter book. Who could imagine a match between a bear and a tiger. There's lots of hot sex, turmoil, betrayal and anything else you might want.James and Laura are both strong characters and the storyline just flows!! So much to say but don't want to ruin anything. I recommend this to anyone who loves a good shifter story!!Another great book by A.T. Mitchell

    Another great read from A.T. Mitchell that I had the privilege to read. The characters are easy to relate to and the storyline believable. I wasn't sure how this was going to play out with two different types of shifters but he made it work. The plot had equal amounts of steamy heat, mystery and excitement to keep me turning the page well into the night. Only complaint I would have would be that I could have used a few more chapters LOL!

    I got this book as a arc but I would have purchased it it was so awesome to see what two different shifters who fall in love, I don't like to give away anything in my reviews but we have a jealously that causes all kinds of problems. You will fall in love with James and Laura and be rooting for them. Loved this book it was awesome,

    I loved this book. It had adventure, passion, and betrayal. This was my first Mitchell book and I will continue to read them. It's funny how two different cultures can be brought together through love. Not exactly the reality when a tigress and bear are forced to marry. The characters are fierce in their own way. Great fun read.

    Sorry but I just couldn't get into this book. This was my first paranormal shape shifter book and will more than likely be my last. Now I enjoyed the hot as hell alpha, James, but beyond that the book lacked serious depth. I'm not going to use any specifics as to why I'm only giving it 2 stars because I dont give away any spoilers.
