Andrea Ridge is a born Ridge Bear and works as the receptionist for Shrew and Company. She is timid, passive, docile and familiar with being kidnapped. So when she wakes up in a strange room with no memory of getting there, she is resigned. But with a little exploration, she finds that outside her door keeping vigil is Peter Ursu, Romanian werebear, mercenary, assassin and her fantasy. Peter explains he is the one who kidnapped her because a) it is mating season, and b) she is his mate. Then he proceeds to keep her at arms length to protect her from himself. Andrea says yes, but Peter senses something is off with her. The last thing he wants is a lifetime of looking into eyes filled with regret. So he waits, until Andrea slips into sleep....and won't wake up.
Andrea Ridge is the sister of her clan's alpha. Both she and Brian were abused by their last alpha, Gene, until Brian took the position from him. She has never had a good relationship with her bear. In fact, it's the opposite. Her bear is negative, critical, and wants Andrea dead so she can move on to a "better" host. When her bear takes control, keeping her in sleep state to waste away, Andrea is helpless. So it's up to Peter to find a solution.
The Shrew series was my introduction to Holley Trent and remains my favorite. Promising Peter is an absolute pleasure to read. It doesn't jump into instant mating with an automatic HEA. It takes its time, simmering, letting the relationship develop. And that is one of the main reasons I love Trent's works. If you want something different with substance, this could be the series for you. It definitely does it for me.
