In the world of the circs, Grayson Belle is a rare man. Unlike the soldiers who’ve been genetically altered in government sponsored scientific programs, turning them into shape-shifters, he was born with the ability shift forms. And he’s telepathic too. But lately his world is coming apart with messed up missions and he’s lusting after his annoying new partner, Bas. Now Gray and Bas are being sent into the field again…to find a rogue circ, Al Ross, who turns out not to be the person either man thought. In fact, Gray’s inner beast wants to claim them as his mate. But doing so will mess up his carefully laid out plans for the future.  

As a rational man, Gray hates that his instincts are pushing aside what his head knows is true but his heart wants his mates and won’t be denied. But first he and Bas have to persuade a stubborn, independent female they all belong together. 

Grayson’s Gamble is release five in Marie Harte’s Dawn Endeavor series and it’s another fun, well written and entertaining addition to the family of books. Please be aware that the lives of the characters are highly intertwined, so the books would be best read in order. 

There’s just something about the circs and the world they live in that I find fascinating, and I can’t seem to get enough to them.  It’s filled with action from beginning to end and watching Gray and Bas fuss at and annoy each other is great fun. And you can’t forget the simmering sexual attraction or blistering hot sex either, which only gets hotter when Ali arrives on the scene. The bantering dialogue is fun and nicely done, the characters well rounded and interesting, and the plot flows smoothly from scene to scene.  

The villains and his minions are at work, which means danger, thrills and suspense while Gray, Bas and Ali try to stay alive. All this happens while integrating the romance into the story and Ms. Harte does it successfully, and still gives our trio a happily-ever-after.
