A mystery hovers around the Haunted Bear Glacier near the remote town of Charming, Alaska. Town manager Chia Petit is determined to solve it. There's nothing she loves better than a good Alaska adventure - when she's not obsessed by her sexual needs or her obedience to rules, that is. Hindered by her annoying practical joker vampire roommate, helped by her happy-go-lucky dog shapeshifter best friend, Chia has more than a few challenges ahead.
Saddled with six stupid ghosts - the demons of past transgressions - as her constant companions, keeping the town of Charming safe and law-abiding should be her only worries. Not so. When Hung Durand, ultra-sexy bounty hunter and shape shifter extraordinaire comes to town, with romance on his mind, all bets are off. His tantalizing presence makes her adherence to rules vaporize as she contemplates shameless, naughty acts with the outlaw.
The sharpshooting gal is prepared for bloody battle, the likes of which neither Hung nor Red Mountainbear, a blowhard, money-grubbing conservative from Fairbanks, has ever experienced. Her mission is to keep the peaceful, shape shifter refuge out of the clutches of those that would just as soon destroy it as they would mine it to fatten their wallets.
Will Chia lose her town to those with dollar signs clouding their judgment, or will her undeniable, wanton attraction to Hung distract her efforts? Or, worse yet, will her vampire roommate take his crazy pranks too far, resulting in her untimely death? Find out in this humorous, Alaska paranormal adventure.

Wonderfully written and narrated. Multi different breed of shape shifters all getting along. Even a white owl. When when it was discovered was not Hung unless I missed it was never revealed I believe it was her grandfather. Deranged the vamp that lives in her basement I love that man..
I absolutely love shifter stories and with all the hot sexual desires and great multitude of shifters made this book one of my all time favorite stories.
I received this free for an honest review.
excellent narration. voice keeps you intrigued into the main character. i loved it. i would definitely check out another work of narrator and writer
I liked the story but the narrator had HORRIBLE diction IE AXE instead of ask...
The narrator had HORRIBLE diction IE AXE instead of ask...She sounds like a uneducated low country hick reading a story about shifters in Alaska? WHY???
It had Great narration. Really brought out the characters that was in the town.
Yes I would like to continue this series see where it leads.
She really brings the characters to life. I think I would not have finished the story so quickly if I would have just read it. I think she did a really great job and I hope she continues with this series.
Power Shift: Hunting the Bounty Hunter beneath Haunted Alaska Skies starts with a hostile power takeover by Red Mountainbear. Chia Petite who has been the town manger, has kept the peace in small town, Charming, Alaska between normal humans and shifters for quite awhile. The only fault is that Chia has tied the town with all her rules that there are no rooms to make exception when self-defense is difficult to prove.
Red and his partner Dick have Chia cornered with Hung Durand, bounty hunter/shifter, accused of several criminal acts and attempted murder. It was also the perfect way to forced Chia's hands in resigning her position of town manager.
If it isn't bad enough Chia has a thing for Hung Durand. She doesn't know whether to sleep with him or kill him. With her rules, she couldn't self-indulged her extra-circular activities to have a one-night stand or even an affair with him.
With the help from her prank-playing vampire roommate and her dog shapeshifter friend, Chia is in for a showdown of who will end up being the town manager. Chia also have her six stupid ghosts that are always haunting her, helped her out as well.
Power Shift has colorful characters. I love the the bantering between Chia and Hung. Hung also seemed to get the drop of Chia but with his protectiveness of her, Chia always ended up in lust for him. The readers/listeners will have to read this book just to get the full characterization of each others.
There is also a lesson involved in this story which Chia has learned. In her effort to keep the town safe and peaceful, Chia and her rules allow no room for flexibility when the rules applying to the situation no longer works. This allows interlopers to use their influences to corrupt the system.
The narrator Dana Le Voz does an excellent job of narrating the story. The narrator makes Chia cute and adorable with the no nonsense, kick-ass attitude. Hung is a total alpha hero, who really tells Chia his opinions of her. He is intelligent and direct to the point. The story isn't over so I do hope that the narrator will come back for the next adventure of Chia, Hung, and their fun-loving friends.
I was given this audiobook by the author/narrator/published via Audiobook Blast in exchange for an honest review. I was not influence or compensated in writing this review.
I am retired & when not sleeping am reading or listening to a book. I multi task so when I am on the computer I always listen to a book.
No. I have way too many books I have yet to read to reread any books.
Since I read many authors of paranormal books, I can see similar traits in this book. Some might be Jennifer Ashley, Nina Bangs, Michele Bardsley, Rhyannon Byrd, Dakota Cassidy, MaryJanice Davidson, and Christina Dodd, just to name a few. I like the fact of secrecy of paranormal with a little woo woo thrown in.
When I read a book, I miss what I would enjoy in the different timbre of voices that I would hear if I read it as an audio book. It really adds to the picture of the characters in my mind.
No, sorry but I usually never laugh or cry while listening or reading a book. I am more of a visual person.
Great story and new paranormal traits.
