The Blurb:

Quinn Miller, a polar bear shifter, is an enforcer at the North Pole. Protecting Santa’s Village is his number one priority, and the job leaves little room for anything else. A mistake made years ago hardened his heart, and he’d rather live alone than allow love to alter his judgment again.

Chloe Winters is free to celebrate Christmas for the first time in five years and she decides to spend it in Christmas Town, a popular tourist attraction, alone. When a sexy, muscle bound stranger offers her friendship, she’s reminded of her long ago wishes for someone to love her, curves and all.

When Santa issues an ultimatum, Quinn finds out the big man really does know everything. The challenge? Convince his curvy, damaged, mate that his love, and shifters and Santa, really do exist.

My Rating: 5 Stars

I absolutely love Ruby Shae’s bears. All of her novellas are steady to fast paced and can be read in a couple of hours. Her heroines are typically voluptuous and curvy; just what her large bear shifters are looking for in their mates. Ruby’s heroes are largely built, sexy, tough, protective and loyal. Ruby is an author I like to keep an eye on.

The premise of the North Pole series is how the polar bear shifters of the North Pole find their mates. Each bear has their own personality and they are all sexy! These polar bears are the enforcers/protectors of Santa’s village/town and all the humans and shifters that reside there. The cast of characters not only bring fun, love and romance, but there is witty banter and quirkiness with some light angst. And of course they all have HEAs.

Quinn Miller and Chloe Winters….

Quinn is a polar bear shifter living only to protect Santa’s village. He is all work and NO play. Quinn is a grumpy bear living with memories of a past he wishes he could forget. Quinn refuses to open his heart again to the possibility of love for fear that he can’t trust his judgement. And because of this, he is lonely and ill-tempered. However, Santa has decided that Quinn will brood no more! That said, much to his annoyance, Quinn is sent away on vacation. This is where he discovers his true mate, to his surprise. Now that he has found her, he’ll have to find a way to convince her to trust in him. Not easy since she is a human and knows nothing about shifters.

Chloe Winters is a human. After a bad breakup she sets out to celebrate a well deserved Christmas all by herself. She ends up in a Christmas village type destination. It is here she meets the most gorgeous stranger she ever laid eyes on. Unfortunately he is a grumpy and rude.

I loved watching Chloe and Quinn discover their feelings for each other. Their attraction was instant however the path to their happily ever after was not overly rushed and I loved every minute of it. My favorite was watching grumpy Quinn change into a totally different person. When he decided to open his heart again to the possibility of love, he became a swoon worthy hunk of a hot bear!
