Synopsis (Goodreads):
She can’t shift, but she can shake their world.

Caroline Bradley is having one hell of a week. Her wolf lover has sniffed out his mate, making her an instant free agent. Not only that, Takhini territory has been overrun with aggressive bear-shifters electing a clan leader, and the wolf pack is feeling the effects—pushing her diplomatic skills to the limit.

Tyler Harrison is a grizzly on a mission. If he’s going to win the majority of the bears’ votes, he needs one final thing: a female companion. The only woman in town with influence over wolves, humans, and more bears than he’d like to admit, is Caroline.

Despite the sexual pull between them, though, Tyler’s not seeking a permanent relationship. And Caroline isn’t looking to be anyone else’s political pawn. But she should have remembered that when shifters are involved, changes happen in the blink of an eye.

Warning: Billionaire bear hero plus kick-ass human heroine equals a sexually volatile power struggle. Get ready for what might be the naughtiest game of tag that’s ever been played in the great outdoors.
Thoughts on Diamond Dust: Oh, shapeshifters. I just can't quit you! (Not that I'd want to. I <3 shapeshifters!) It doesn't matter what you shift into, you're all so delectable when you go all growly and mine.

Tyler's a total sweetheart of a bear. Not going to lie, when Caroline gets up close and personal with his grizzly and he went all puddly, I was loving it. Big men brought down by little ladies make me smile. Especially when the little lady is a pure human and the man in question is one of the powerhouses in the wild.

There's a lot going on in this book. We get to see the bear shifters meeting to elect their leader--and aren't there some interesting dynamics going on with those bears?--and Caroline trying to keep things running smoothly, first for the wolves, then for Tyler. I like Caroline's balls to the wall attitude with the wolves (and later the bears). She might not be a shifter, but she's carved out a place for herself among them.

I'm digging on this series. It's fun, sexy, and full of just the right amount of shapeshiftery goodness.
