Tiana is resigned to her life as a single woman after her husband left her years ago. Who has time for a relationship when you have a child to raise and elderly parents to care for? Not to mention her ex-husband who lives in a trailer at the end of the garden. 

Then she’s set up on a blind date by her best friends and her world changes forever. Because her date is a bear shifter and she’s his mate. 

His mate for life and he doesn’t intend to ever let her go. 

When Mason agrees to go on a blind date, he never expects to meet his true mate. But here she is in front of him. Now all he has to do is convince Tiana she has room in her life, and her heart, for a bear shifter in love.

Sexy shifters and their feisty mates who aren’t shy about loving each other – so, this is an adult, 18+ reader tale.

Blind Date Bear takes us back to Bear Creek through the Silverbacks and Second Chances series from Shifters in Love: Fun & Flirty.  This time we meet Mason who has made his mark in business in the city and is looking to retire to Bear Creek, it’s time to allow his bear the freedom to roam.  And since they have yet to find their mate, well, this is as beautiful a place to settle down as any.  The last person he expected to meet on this blind date set up by a college friend was, indeed, his mate.  Unfortunately, that information was such a shock that his first impression wasn’t all that he’d wished for, but she was here and he’d found her, finally.  Now all he had to do was convince this strong, leery woman that he was the man for her, forever.

Tiana is in her 40’s, has a teen age son about to head off to college and spread his wings, her parents are in ill health and her ex-husband lives in a trailer at the back of her property.  No, she’s not looking for romance, her plate is quite full thank you very much.  Yet she gets talked into going on an unusual blind date only to discover that while Mason seems quite shell-shocked at their first meeting, he’s not a bad guy and the attraction is there… now, can he handle her family and the craziness of her life.

Blind Date Bear is more laid-back, a bit realistic about dating in mid-life for anyone.  There are issues, but not problems to be faced and decisions to be made.  But once Tiana gets beyond the shifter part of him, there is no reason to delay exploring a life with him… not even her crazy family.

In the mood for a fun and flirty Shifter Romance?  Then this addition to the Silverbacks and Second Chances of Bear Creek is perfect for you.  Mason and Tiana blend together easily, and there are no major difficulties with her family.  Sexy, uncomplicated and completely enjoyable.  I love this story and I believe you will, too.
