Product Description

Product Description

Ethan Artair lived his life happily in Willow Creek. Living among shifters, he was able to live free and allow his bear to do the same. Everything changed, the day a reporter came to his little town and made everyone’s life a living hell. As mayor, he had no choice but take a human wife to disprove the reporter’s claim that no outsiders are allowed their town. Disgust filled Ethan when he met his new wife, but his disgust quickly changed to something he never thought he could feel for a human, lust.

Amelia Calder is forced to live with the scars of her parents’ death. While growing up in foster care, her only desire was to see her younger sister be happy. Knowing her minimum wage job would never be enough to care for her sister, she made the only choice she could. She decided to move to a town she had never heard of and marry a man she had never met. Fear filled Amelia when she finally met her new husband, but her fear quickly changed to something else, something she's never felt before, lust.

Can lust turn into love, between a human and a bear shifter?

Rough is an erotic shifter novella. If you don’t like insta-lust that turns into insta-love, a sex starved bear shifter, a virgin heroine that craves her mate, or tons of smoking hot sex this is not the book for you.

HASH(0x9c810cb4) out of 5 stars loved this hot shifter book!!! Feb. 6 2016
By MLS - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Emily and Julia has renewed my interest in shifter books. This book had me drawn in, and the heat of the two characters as soon as they meet, instalove, and I loved it. Ethan is a himan/bear shifter, and his quiet little community is in danger of being taken over by humans, and his town is full of different types of shifters, and they are not happy about possible humans coming to their town. The only thing Ethan can come up with is to marry a human. Which brings us to Emelia. She has had a rough last few years, a fire destroyed her and her sisters lives, taking their parents from them. Living in foster care, and left with scars from rescuing her sister from the fire, she struggles with 2 jobs, and is determined to see her sister to college and a better life. When she sees the ad to be a bride, she fills out the application and just hopes she's not making a mistake. But when she sees Ethan, the desire and instant feelings are there. This book kept me drawn in and I couldn't put it down. I look forward to more of this series!!!!

HASH(0x9c810d08) out of 5 stars Hot Shifter Romance Feb. 19 2016
By DanielleLW2B - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
If I'm being totally honest I was first drawn to Rough based on the cover and title alone... And once I read the blurb? I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book! For the most part I really enjoyed this one but it wasn't exactly love like I was expecting it to be.

Ethan and Amelia are both in a situation where marriage can help them out... Ethan because he has to keep his shifter town safe from discovery and Amelia because she needs to have a place for her and her sister to live when her sister turns 18... And it's by luck alone that they both happen to find the mail order bride website that'll put them on the path to finding each other.

Of course they both have their reservations but it's lust at first sight and let me tell you... Ethan's growly "mine" as soon as he sees her?! Smoking hot!! And the bathroom scene seconds later? Even hotter! Personally, I need erotic shifter romance like I need my next breath and Rough did not disappoint in that regard but if you're looking for a book with more story and less sexy times you might wanna skip this one... Of course that's just my two cents!

I really liked Ethan and Amelia and being a huge fan of insta-love, Rough was right up my alley. My issue with this book comes from the writing alone. I had a hard time looking past a few things which made really getting into the story a little difficult... I think if I could have connected with the writing a little more or I could look past the grammar that was driving me crazy, Rough could have been a four star read for me.

That said, I will definitely be checking out the next book in this series as well as other books from these authors!

HASH(0x9c81115c) out of 5 stars Read the blurb!! Feb. 3 2016
By jfer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
How I found out about this book...somewhere along the way I have signed up for newsletters from these authors. I'm sure it has happened through some type of contest or massive signup for author newsletters. I read the emails, saw the cover - the absolutely breathtaking cover (I'm a cover addict) was mesmerized by the fantastic, beautiful cover of this book, saw that it was a PNR book and thought I would give it a try. I should have read the full blurb on the Amazon book page before I downloaded it through the KU program. I didn't read it until after I had read the story. So, when the authors wrote this ---

Rough is an erotic shifter novella. If you don’t like insta-lust that turns into insta-love, a sex starved bear shifter, a virgin heroine that craves her mate, or tons of smoking hot sex this is not the book for you.

They were not even joking when they wrote the words INSTA. It's very insta, too insta for me. There is very little "story" in the novella. After the first couple of chapters (no erotic content) and as soon, I mean literally as soon as the H & h meet, the sexual content starts and continues nearly every other page until you see the words THE END. I'm all for some hot sexiness in the books I read! But- having so much sex in the book, well, that made it very hard for me to connect to the story, simply because there wasn't much story there.
There were a few grammar mistakes here and there. Not enough to take away from the book. But It took me a minute to figure out what "Walla" meant. I'm pretty sure it's suppose to be Voila. That may be a different country/cultural thing. I'm not for sure.
This was a 2 star read for me, but I'm giving it three stars because I blame myself for not fully reading the blurb. And - the cover is fantastic.

HASH(0x9c81151c) out of 5 stars Ready for the next book...... Feb. 5 2016

So I love Emily Minton books! I haven't read a book by her that I haven't given 5 stars. This is no different. I'm not usually into shifter books actually I think I've only ever read one and just wasn't crazy about it. But I absolutely loved this one! Sometimes you need an Insta-love read and this was it. I can't wait to see what she comes up with in the second one in the series I will definitely be keeping an eye out for it!!

HASH(0x9c811600) out of 5 stars Amelia is a sweet heroine of the story who just can't get ahead ... Feb. 3 2016

After reading "Trapped with the Alpha," I couldn't wait to see what these two authors came up with next. Luckily, I didn't have to wait long. In "Rough" we meet a bear shifter who is also Mayor of his small town. To get some "hype" off his town he decides that they need to bring humans into the town. He signs up to be married with a mail order bride giving up his chance of finding his true mate. Amelia is a sweet heroine of the story who just can't get ahead in life. She is trying to take her of sister, all while supporting herself. She decides to sign up to be a mail order bride, so that she may be able to provide for her sister the way she wants too. While going through pictures of possible brides, Ethan, comes across Amelia and his bear recognizes her as his true mate. They marry and have some hardships adjusting to life, but get their HEA. I loved this book, and of course the steamy scenes. I can't wait for the next installment in this series. This was a quick read, and great for in between books.
