“Buck Naked was a sexy, fun little number”
~ Under the Covers
This is a brand new series by Anderson and one of the things I liked about it is her shifters. Instead of being the normal cat, wolf, bear. Instead she has created a mythology where the shifters turn into prehistoric animals. Like our hero in Buck Naked is an Irish Elk and some of the other characters are cougars but prehistoric style. It adds a nice twist to tried and tested genre.
At this point I have read a lot of Paranormal Romance, especially shifter based one they are some of my favourites. But this is the first time I have read one where the shifter in question was an elk. At first, despite the hero being the ruggedly sexy lumber jack type, I was a little deflated. I imagined a dainty Bambi like creature. Then I googled prehistoric Irish Elk, which is what he shifts in to and wow, I started to get back on board. Despite not being a predator the Irish Elk was a creature no one would want to tangle with, it looked fierce and majestic.
So, now over my elk worries I fully embraced the story. I’ve read and enjoyed Anderson’s work before and this was no different. Buck Naked was a sexy, fun little number involving a middle aged woman mysteriously getting the body of her youth back and exploring her wild sexy side with a younger man. Overall it won’t be anything that if you’re familiar with the genre, that you hadn’t read before but it’s a nice addition to paranormal romance.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
