Review: Three of Hearts by Elena Croft

Three of Hearts by Elena Croft

Publisher: Red Rose Publishing
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Heat Rating: 2



Once the Elders sent her off to Canada to find her mate, Leslie Maple soon realizes that life wasn't so hot out in Phoenix. With nothing but a photo, she heads to Vancouver where she meets the two most gorgeous men she'd ever seen, identical twins Sebastian and Castor Belvedere. More intriguing are the feelings they invoke in her, the call she just can't seem to resist.

Aunt Sharon has a nasty habit of playing matchmaker, but Sebastian and Castor are through playing along. However, Aunt Sharon is an old pro at the matchmaking game and plays her wild card asking them to do her a favor by accompanying her to the airport to pick up her latest mate choice. Unfortunately, for them this time Aunt Sharon may be right. But whom does this mate belong to?

Yadkny’s Review

Leslie is a were-beaver living with her human boyfriend and living in denial… or so her family thinks. Leslie’s boyfriend doesn’t know she is a were and now the Elders are breathing down her neck to dump him and go find her real mate. Leslie is sent to Vancouver, Canada to meet her mother’s friend so she can start the hunt for a mate, but she’s worried. She delayed this inevitable hunt for so long because she believes that once she find’s her mate, that person would be in control of her life. Little does Leslie know that she is about to lose control, but not in the way she thinks.

Castor and Sebastian are twins as well as were-beaver’s. They also are stunned to find out that in Leslie they both find an amazing connection. No one believes that it’s possible for Leslie to have two mates and Leslie is apprehensive because of old unfounded fears. The connection and attraction is there, but Leslie still pulls away. When her ex-boyfriend resurfaces to kidnap her, the twins decide that nothing and no one is going to stop them from making her theirs.

I’ve read and enjoyed many shifter books, but they were always the usual wolf or big cat stories, so I was intrigued to see this was about were-beavers. Although this story showed much promise, there was something missing. This was a short story so I understand that descriptions whether setting or character become limited, but the connection between the characters fell short. Interesting storyline, but lacks character depth.
