Amanda Parker is tired of pretending to be someone she’s not. But she’s been pretending so long that she can’t even remember who she is anymore. She decides to leave behind her life of rules and expectations and escape to the Alaskan wilderness to find herself. But when she unexpectedly finds romance on her journey, she has to decide whether she has room in her new life for a man—especially a man as unique as the gorgeous Alaskan hunk who’s been keeping an unusual secret from her.

Grizzly shifter Sawyer Williams is a busy man. As the alpha to a group of Alaskan grizzlies, he is duty-bound to protect his clan and put their well being above his own at all times. Between working as a pilot for his tour company and taking care of clan business, he’s left with precious little time to find a mate. He’s nearly given up on love when destiny brings the beautiful Amanda Parker across his path. He wants nothing more than to make her his own, but a crisis within his clan requires him to put duty ahead of romance.

Will Sawyer get a chance to show Amanda how he feels before it’s too late? And can Amanda find the courage to make love a part of her new journey?

Shifters are very sensuous creatures and never hesitate to show their mates their love physically – so this is an 18+ reader story.

Paramedic Catalina Mendez just flew back to America after months of volunteering in a disaster-stricken country.

He tells her to run to save herself, but Catalina refuses to leave him. When they’re both kidnapped by a ruthless black ops agency, the adventure that follows will test her courage— and her heart— to the limit.

Cover Description:

Josh “Limes” Harris is good with computers, great at fighting, terrible with people. As an accomplished hacker for Bear Claw Security, he’s used to providing support from the office…and never leaving it. So when he’s forced to take a bodyguard job because the client insists on hiring him, he’s one grumpy bear. Especially when the client mistakes him for one of the bad guys and attacks him. Limes is ready to walk away, until he realizes the sweet brunette with killer curves that just swung at him might just be his mate.

When Jamie insisted on hiring the tech guy at bear security, she was hoping to work with someone quiet and nerdy and unassuming, unlike the other big, bad bears there. Instead, the tech guy turns out to be the most intimidating of all, a giant bear shifter with tattoos, bulging muscles, piercing green eyes and a permanent scowl. He’s determined to stay and protect her, and with the forces on her tail, Jamie doesn’t have much choice. Even if men like Limes, tall and hot and intimidating, always make her want to run and hide.

But the longer they’re together, the more Jamie’s fear is turning to attraction for her sexy, strong protector. And Limes feels that Jamie brings out sides of him he didn’t know existed. He’s truly falling for the gorgeous girl he’s guarding. Now he just has to keep her safe long enough for them to have a happily ever after.

Shifters and their mates are extremely sexual in their showing love to their mate – so this one is an 18+ story.

She’s not looking for a white knight …

Single mom Gemma Ellis loves her son — and hates asking for help. Her no-account ex has taught her she can’t rely on anyone but herself, even if that means working two jobs and barely scraping by.

Big, burly, handsome doctor Eddie Rochon makes Gemma wonder if good men are more than a myth. She’s tempted to give him a chance … but trust is hard after all she’s been through.

He’s ready to save the day …

Eddie’s a polar bear shifter with a gift for taking care of people … and a bit of a gnome problem. When he realizes the curvy brunette with the adorable little boy is his mate, his need to help her kicks into overdrive–but if he tries too hard, he’ll drive her away.

Welcome home … or see you later?

When Gemma’s ex turns up, things get even more complicated. Can Eddie protect his new found family and convince his mate that he’s not like other men she’s known? Or will her self-reliance blind her to the truth?
