Kellsie Morris knows her career as a Hollywood scream queen won’t last forever. Luckily, she’s just landed a big role in a movie about an immortal, shape-shifting warrior trapped in a carnival run by the Devil’s minions. When the carousel bear on set shifts into a flesh and bone bear of a man, Kellsie starts to question reality.

When Marko is released from the curse that has kept him trapped in his animal form and lays eyes on Kellsie, he knows with every fiber of his being that his purpose is now to protect her no matter what.

But there’s no predicting the Devil’s next move in this game. Hades is determined to get his revenge on the escaped warrior, and going after Marko’s mate is seems like the perfect plan.

Each book in the Hades’ Carnival series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Favorite Lines “Where there was hope there was life. A”

“So he was hot. So what? So he made her body sit up and take notice. So what? He was just a man like any other.”

“He had to believe in her honesty, in her passion. If it wasn’t genuine, he was lost, because there was no way he could ever harm her

By Bethany January 02, 2014

Wow! This series is crazy. The stories are fairly short, but from the moment the shifter is released, the action never stops. Hades is always one step behind them, and time is running out. Exciting, suspenseful and steamy. Loving this series! ...more

I got off to a bad start with this Author and spent years avoiding reading her work because of it. I am so glad I picked up another book by her, because so far I love the worlds she has created and I really like a lot of the characters.
My only nit with this story was the first sexy time came a litt ...more

4.5 Stars!

Absolutely loved this book! Admittedly, in it's basic form, this story follows the same (or at least a very similar) plot that Night of the Tiger had, just with different people. I still, however, enjoyed it because N.J. Waters does a good job still making the story it's own with a new cha ...more

NJ, seriously!?! It had to end like that? :( I am so dying for the next book to be out now!!! This was another great read! This series is quickly turning into a favorite for me. It's unique and interesting. The story just sucks you right in and if you’re like I was, you won’t come back out until you ...more

Stars: 4

Overall: Hades is at it again and this time he has it in for Scream Queen Kellsie Morris. I loved this book a bit more than the first one. The story was ingenious because the author took it to another level in the horror and love aspect. I also really liked the way the bear claw and Kellsie' ...more

This book is an intriguing paranormal romance with a refreshingly unique tale involving Hades and a curse. The author has created a fascinating world of wonder and excitement, enchanting characters and a interesting and different storyline that ensures the reader wants to know the rest of the story. ...more

By Jessica March 03, 2015

I loved this story. The blend of the supernatural shapeshiftsrs and the acient Greek gods with the modern was great. I loved that this one was focused on the bear and the b lost actress. It was good. I loved that the heroine is independent and brave. I loved how the bear was sensitive to her and how ...more

By Cassandra June 07, 2013

I can't think of a better follow up to Night of The Tiger than Mark of The Bear. Marko is one sexy shapeshifter and Kellsie is one lucky heroine. Marko is possessive, protective, and everything a woman could want in an alpha hero. The love scenes nearly burned up my ereader! I can't wait for the nex ...more

By Kate September 19, 2015

Mark of the Bear is just as good as the first one. There are similarities and I don't know if that can be avoided to be honest not with the set up by the author. Still a solid and sound series and an author to watch out for. ...more

By Natalie January 23, 2014

I loved this book, it keeps you on edge right to the end. But really, a sward to the back won't kill an immortal, have some commonsense Kellsie. ...more

About the author

N.J. Walters

Once upon a time N.J. had the idea that she would like to quit her job at the bookstore, sell everything she owned, leave her hometown, and write romance novels in a place where no one knew her. And she did. Two years later, she went back to the bookstore and her hometown and settled in for another seven years. One day she gave notice at her job on a Friday morning. On Sunday afternoon, she received a tentative acceptance for her first erotic romance novel and life would never be the same. N.J. has always been a voracious reader, and now she spends her days writing novels of her own. Vampires, werewolves, dragons, time-travelers, seductive handymen, and next-door neighbors with smoldering good looks—all vie for her attention. It’s a tough life, but someone’s got to live it.
