For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo …

Will Romero, scion of his bear shifter clan, has returned to Verona to take over the Romero business … and to continue the centuries-long feud raging between the Romeros and Carpathians. But when Will sneaks into a forbidden Carpathian masked ball, he collides with Jules Carpathian, and his life is changed in an instant. The only daughter of the Carpathian clan chief, Jules is Will’s sworn enemy. But she’s also the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen, and he can’t resist how he’s drawn to her.

Jules Carpathian, a witch, has always been the perfect daughter, the perfect Carpathian. So perfect, in fact, that she’s engaged to a man she doesn’t love. But when she learns it’s all a lie—even her fiancĂ©’s intentions—Jules is left questioning everything … even the idea that the Romeros are her enemy. For the first time in her life, Jules is ready to make her own decisions. And she chooses Will Romero. But is their love enough to bridge the gap between their family histories?

Can the stars be rewritten for true love, or is there no escaping their tragic fate?

Romeo & Juliet by Lily Cahill
(Shakesbear: Shifters of Verona #1)

Romeo & Juliet (Shakesbear: Shifters of Verona Book 1)Even in the world of the paranormal there are feuds between families, clans, etc. Feuds that last longer than the memories of how they started. The Romeros and the Carpathians’ feud has lasted centuries with no sign of letting up any time soon.

Will Romero, a bear shifter, sneaks into the Carpathian masquerade ball and finds himself bewitched by a beautiful mystery lady behind a dazzling mask. When he discovers she is the daughter of the Carpathian chief, Will refuses to believe they are over before they can even begin. Jules becomes publicly engaged to a devious suitor who has plans for the Carpathian dynasty. A witch, Jules is caught between her heart and her duty as a daughter, until she finds what a snake her fiancé truly is.

Will these two lovestruck lovers find a happy ending or will they become like a paranormal re-enactment of the original lovers?

Lily Cahill’s ROMEO AND JULIET has all of the passion, the intrigue and the pain of Shakespeare’s duo, but the addition of the paranormal world is a fresh take on this well-told tale. A quick read with some insta-love, heated passion and two lovers determined to spend eternity together. Light and completely entertaining, take an evening to see what happens when love knows no bounds and two lovers are determined to spend eternity together, no matter what.

I received an ARC edition from Lily Cahill in exchange for my honest review.
