Shifters defend their mates to the death...

Bear shifter Darius Longton never expected to find his mate in his favorite coffee shop, but one sniff of her scent in the air is all it takes for his bear to know the truth. This delicious, sinfully curvy redhead is his.

Too bad she’s human and far too fragile for his volatile bear.

Holly Trent cannot understand the instant attraction she feels for this man. One look from his heavy-lidded eyes is all it takes to set her knickers aflame with lust. However, she will not be another notch on his bedpost, no matter how much his voice alone makes her want to sink to her knees.

But when a customer gets heavy with her, everything changes. Darius’s defense of her places them both in terrible danger. Thrown headfirst into shifter council politics, it falls to Holly to save her mate.


Claiming His Human by author Doris O’Connor is the sixth book in the projects series. I have not read this series in order and I was not lost reading this book.  I think it is a stand-alone story, might get more out if you read in order cause I don’t know if there are people we have met before or not, but the main story itself stands by itself.
Darius is a grizzly bear shifter. When Holly is threatened he ends up shifting in front of her. Holly is terrified, and Darius is sure he lost the woman he loves forever.
Holly is a barista, while Darius knows she is his mate. Holly is a human with no knowledge of shifters. She might be too fragile for him, but he wants her anyway.
Holly for her part does little things just to please Darius. She likes how he watches her. But she does have a meltdown after seeing him shift.
I liked how they worked it out after and how it all works out in the end. This story is not my favorite of Ms. Connor’s just lacked her usual spark. But it is good and worth reading.
