Ellen is over forty and divorced from a cheating and abusive ex. He is still harassing and stalking her, apparently cleaning her out and forcing her from her home was not enough. She has not been eating and sleeping well and her friend and boss Nathan decides she needs a break.
Matt and his three brothers broke Cherokee law centuries ago and were cursed to immortality and the ability to shift into the form of an animal. Matt is a bear. He protects the other bears on the mountain and any human that might get into trouble.
Ellen is sent to her boss’ cabin on Eternity Mountain to rest and try to recover from a traumatic divorce. Lost in a blizzard she is saved by a handsome bear of a man. They instantly connect, but there are more dangers than just a blizzard on Eternity Mountain.
I really enjoyed this story. The characters are well written and the brothers are pretty normal for shape shifting immortals. They each have their own quirks and personalities, making them very real. Ellen suffered through a terrible marriage and the torture did not even end when the divorce was final. I wondered at her boss sending her alone to a remote cabin at Christmas with a storm threatening, but he knows more than he tells. The love scenes between the two are hot and tender at the same time. Matt is very sensitive for a centuries-old werebear and very, very sexy. Ellen is surprisingly strong given her childhood and marital abuse, and I loved how she stood up for herself and Matt at the end. There are some very dramatic moments on the mountain and I enjoyed every one of them.
