A golden-haired beauty with a tiger totem, Raene Randal is powerless to stop the dissolution of her life. Her uncle and best friend, Kaide, is sending her away for good. While Raene knows his actions are fueled by the sudden and unexplained loss of his bride, Blossom, that doesn’t change the fact that her future is certain. As the niece of a Pyro politician, it’s Raene’s duty to cross the realm and fulfill her marriage arrangements with an Alderwood Bear Clan.

The rest of her life is mapped out, but Raene has one choice left: to choose a husband from the sons of the Bear Clan’s leader—too bad she’s not interested in any of them. She knows her duty, but so far from her home and everyone she knows, Raene finds keeping her promises harder than she ever thought.

On the far side of the realm, Blossom knows nothing of Kaide’s implosion or Raene’s departure. She’s trapped in the Aero city at the whim of Syndicate Mercer. As much as she tries to adapt to her aerial totem and her new role within the Aero branch, Blossom knows it’s only a matter of time before she sees Kaide again, but this time, she’ll be his enemy.

 
Raene and the Three Bears by RS McCoy

Raene and the Three BearsShe was sent away from her people and her life as part of a political arrangement. Raene has been traded to marry one of the Alderwood Bear Clan leader’s sons, never to be able to run free as her tiger, again. Feeling betrayed by her uncle, Raene is isolated, alone and feels as much fear as anger for not being allowed to live her own life. Is she being punished for the loss of her uncle’s mate? Three sons, each different, each handsome, each in need of a mate, but only one can win her hand, if not her heart and time is running out for her to choose. How can she choose a man she doesn’t love? Why must her life be chained to a strange land and a group who will never understand her? Something is going on and Raene has nearly died, but now to be rushed into marriage ahead of schedule seems just cruel.

Blossom didn’t run away from Raene’s uncle, she was taken, forced to give up the man she loved and chained to the whims of the Syndicate Mercer, a twisted woman who finds joy in tormenting her subordinates. Not knowing her fate, Kaide is beside himself with grief and pain, why would she leave? Will they ever be together again? Will it be as enemies or lovers?

Two young women, each trapped in a world they cannot escape, neither knowing what has happened to each other, is there any happiness to be found? R.S. McCoy is back and this time, she has re-created the tale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears with an adult twist and romance. There is no porridge to test, but the political machinations of those in power, will be tested, as strong-willed characters try to change the odds to their favor in the game of life.

RAENE AND THE THREE BEARSby R.S. McCoy is a tale of duty, a test of internal strength and the desire to go home versus the desire for love. Ms. McCoy adds so much heart to her tales, the characters’ pain, anger and love feel real, are very intense and help build each scene as the characters share their hearts while belying them with their necessary actions. Once again, R.S. McCoy brings life, love and the paranormal together for another fabulous read!

I received this edition from R.S. McCoy in exchange for my honest review.
