He wants a mate. She needs a doggy defender! 

Loving and affectionate. It’s a pity Jane is talking about Boomer, an adorable dog, and not Guy’s adorable bear. 
Don’t tell Guy’s bear he called him adorable or there might be trouble 

Or more trouble, since Guy is being hired to protect Boomer from an attempted dognapping. 

But events take a turn for the unusual when Jane asks for a doggy defender for Boomer, who has inherited the estate of his deceased mistress. 

Guy immediately realizes Jane is his mate. However, things are not exactly what they seem, and events quickly escalate. 

Bad kitty! 

Handling the dognapping is child’s play for Guy and soon he is free to enjoy his future with Jane. But fate isn’t done with surprises for these two fated mates. A trip to the local animal shelter gives them much more than another dog who needs a home.

Oh, I’ve been waiting for Guy’s story and Jane turned out to be the perfect mate for this brave man.  When Jane’s employer and close friend dies she leaves her most beloved possessions in Jane’s care – her rescue dog, Boomer, and her historic home.  Plus the funds to keep both safe and secure for years to come.  This doesn’t sit well with the woman who thought she was entitled to everything — and then the troubles began.

DOGGY DEFENDER BEAR is full of twists and turns that you might see coming and others that will blindside you.  I enjoyed the banter between Jane and Guy as well as a very lovable pup, Boomer.  We’ll run into some familiar faces as this story unfolds.  Full of action, suspense, and steam I was caught up in Guy and Jane’s story from the start and loved every minute spent with them.  The epilogue for their romance was simply priceless.
