What should Trista do when faced with a hunky werebear who can't decide if he wants to kill her or screw her?

Half-hyena, Trista has spent years rotating between Grayslake, Redby, and Boyne Falls. When the Grayslake Itan--the local clan's werebear leader--orders a purge of all hyenas, she finds herself fighting to hold onto the hand-to-mouth life she's created. Her carefully built existence is threatened further when a gorgeous werebear strides into her life and demands not just her heart, but her very soul. She'll think about it, but not until her shift ends at seven.

Keen seems like a happy-go-lucky, sex-and-sin werebear, but that's nowhere near the truth. In reality, his inner-animal wants to go on a bloody rampage and kill half of Grayslake--just because it can. After that, it wants to claim the seductive, curvaceous half-hyena female Keen can't get out of his head. The animal doesn't care that most bears wouldn't mind a little hyena tartare for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Nope, it peers at her through Keen's human eyes and has one thought: mate.

When push comes to shove, Keen has to decide if he would rather have the family he was born with, or Trista--the woman who makes him realize that true happiness comes in a lush, hyena-shaped package.

Enjoy the third book in the bestselling Grayslake series. This new BBW paranormal shapeshifter romance from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Celia Kyle is sure to secure a spot on your keeper shelf.


I think Roaring up the Wrong Tree by Celia Kyle is my favorite story in the Grayslake series.  I also have a new book boyfriend in Keen.  He appeared to have very little depth prior to this tale but Ms. Kyle showed just how deceptive appearances could be.  Here was this male that appeared to have it all, I mean his brother is the Itan and his other brother the Enforcer, but it soon became obvious that they didn’t know their youngest brother and respected him even less.  But Keen allowed it until his heart was involved and his mate’s happiness and life were at stake.  I swooned as he made a stand even though he didn’t expect Trista to understand or even appreciate the rift that was raised out of the darkness.  I loved that Trista wasn’t happy about the eruption of pain but she stood by the male who showed her what love and acceptance really meant.  Ms. Kyle showed that Keen was stronger than even he knew and was willing to forgive but not necessarily forget.  He made Trista feel safe and with her past that wasn’t the easiest task.  But Keen persevered and I could do no more than respect him and his choices.
I love this series and returning to Grayslake.  Ms. Kyle has given me a new man to adore in Keen and a strong female character in Trista.  I am looking forward to reading more for her in the future.
