SynopsisFor Marco, heir to the lions' throne, seizing control of the Cave of Whispers from the bear clan is more than just a quest—it's fulfilling the legacy of his breed. But the latest crusade has left Marco gravely wounded in enemy territory and in the hands of Alicia, healer for the bears. An irresistibly sensuous adversary, Alicia presents a serious problem. She carries the scent of a mate. 
Drawn to this dominant master of his den, Alicia knows her allegiance has been compromised. His brooding sexuality is testing her defenses, but falling in love with Marco means falling in league with a rival shifter. And turning her back on the bears in a time of war is a lethal move. 
Two breeds united by destiny could inspire a peaceful new future for their opposing clans—or ignite the fiercest battle yet and destroy all of Deep Creek forever. 



Five Favorite Movie Scenes
by Kerry Adrienne

Five favorite movie scenes? That’s not many but here we go, in no particular order:

Leaving Atlanta in Gone with the Wind. Scarlett has Rhett driving them out of the burning city (great effects for the 1930s!) and Melanie is holding her newborn baby. Rhett is Mr. Alpha and Scarlett is Ms. Alpha. Don’t mess with her because once it’s tomorrow and she’s thinking about it, she’ll take you out. Love that whole movie and the orchestration that goes along with it. 

The clip (look at those colors and imagine how much that must’ve affected movie-goers at the time!)


Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan. Spock sacrifices himself for the crew (as a good Vulcan would). His hand up to Captain Kirk’s (with a divider in between), Spock delivers one of the most touching lines…ever. “I have been, and always shall be, your friend."

Here’s the video, sniff, sniff. His logical death becomes one of the most emotional scenes I’ve ever seen.


You Can’t take it With You. Oh, how I love Jimmy Stewart! This movie is probably one of my favorite movies, ever. I love the morals and the positivity that comes out of the movie. One of my favorite scenes is the Hungarian Dance scene. I always wanted my house to be like this: music, art, science, and a raven at the table! Check out all the things going on. Be who you are! I love this scene:


An Affair to Remember. Ohhhh, what a tearjerker! The scene where Cary Grant figures out why Deborah Kerr couldn’t meet him on top of the Empire State building has to be one of the most romantic moments ever. Reminds me of Gift of the Magi.

The clip. I challenge you to not be moved!


Casablanca, oh so many quotes and scenes in this movie. Such a romance… One of my favorite scenes: 

Ilsa: Play it once, Sam. For old times' sake.
Sam: [lying] I don't know what you mean, Miss Ilsa.
Ilsa: Play it, Sam. Play "As Time Goes By."

The clip (who doesn’t sigh?)

So many movies and so many favorite scenes! I hope you enjoyed five of my favorites—what do you think of my choices? What scenes do you love? There are so many more I could list…especially from the old Hollywood movies. The use of lighting, music, drama…added so much to the emotion conveyed to the audience. The look in the actor’s eyes could make you feel. I love that!

Thank you for having me!
