Blog Tour: Retrieved - Amber Polo

Blurb for Retrieved: Dog-shifters once again face the book-burning werewolves of Shipsfeather in this charming second installment of The Shapeshifters' Library series.

Godiva Anglesey, Chocolate Labrador, and the ruggedly handsome English Mastiff Cynerik are forced to team up against power-hungry werewolves when Cynerik discovers an ancient Ohio mound that may hold answers to their shifter history. Knowing the mound's secrets could benefit the dog-shifters in the ongoing contest for power, ambitious werewolf pack Alpha Sybilla challenges timid Godiva to a battle for the territory. Already faced with a malicious book-worm infestation and a censorship threat to ban all anthropomorphic books in her library, Godiva, who has no interest in battling anyone, must turn from running her small town library to train for a challenge she believes she has no chance of winning. Just when things couldn't get any worse, Godiva's mother announces that family tradition dictates that Godiva must be married by Summer Solstice… to a Druid. Godiva doesn't even know any Druids.

Godiva wants to run her library, retrieve books for library patrons, and keep people happy. She's no hero. She doesn't have what it takes to face down werewolves or save the world. Cynerik, however, believes differently. Together they must defeat the werewolves, save the town and its library, protect the most important archeological discovery in dog-shifter history… and, just maybe, find love along the way.

First thoughts after...
Le sigh...... I have to wait for the next book this time...."doggone" it!  Pun intended and not intended just kind of popped out!  LOL

How Distracted Did I Get??
Once again Ms. Polo has captured my complete attention.  Retrieved, sequel to Released, is a wonderful Paranormal Romance Action story.  Diva, a chocolate Labrador Retriever Shifter, is fun, sweet and naive.  You want to knock her upside the head sometimes, however, she sneaks her way into your heart with her courageousness and loyalty.  Cyn, a Mastiff (I want a Mastiff now especially if he turns into a hottie mctottie human), regal mastiff strong, smart and loyal.  I enjoyed Diva's growth emotionally through the book.  Retrieved is a must for your TBR pile.  Once again I enjoyed the twist on Shifters and Werewolves and can't wait to read the next!
