Bull shifter Ryan is a show-off. Ryan likes nothing better than to toss a bull rider then strut around the arena with his head held high. Ryan’s victory strut is also a source of pride for his human lover, Caleb O’Connell, who loves the bull Whirlwind and the man known as Ryan. 

Love Is a Whirlwind is the second book in The Shifters series. The setting is the Las Vegas rodeo circuit. The fantastic plot is a romantic suspense blending humor, very sensual love scenes and drama. The characters are believable. Ryan spent most of his time in bull form until he was rescued by Caleb’s mother. Ryan knew how to shift into human form but knew little of the human world until he reveals his shifter nature to Caleb. It was Caleb who taught Ryan the ways of a human. Caleb had loved Whirlwind long before he discovered the bull was a shifter. Tormented for being gay, Whirlwind was Caleb’s only friend. Overtime, friendship developed into love with Ryan and Caleb becoming equal partners during intimacy. When Ryan is kidnapped, it is by a religious fanatic connected to a group of extremists. Coming to Ryan’s rescue is members of the shifter’s secret police organization known only as The Agency.

Ryan and Caleb as M.D. Grimm’s main characters are impressive. However, my favorite character is “tough guy” agent Poe who makes Love Is a Whirlwind an outstanding saga that is thoroughly enjoyable.
