He’d waited half a lifetime for her. There was no way he could let her walk away.

Renowned sculptor, and father to baby Milly, Tad has seen his brother meet and fall in love with his mate. He’d almost given up hope that she would walk into his life. But she did. She walked right into his studio and asked for his help.

And he could not say no. Never. Ever.

Even if helping his mate, Heather, meant standing in front of a crowd of people and making a speech. Yeah. Give him a child to protect. Or a mate to defend and he’d do it. No question. But public speaking? Hell no!

But she asked. So he’ll do it. Because she needs a win. She needs her plans to come to fruition. She needs to feel that rush of triumph to be able to get over her past.

So of course, he’ll do it. She’s his mate.

Thaddeus Harrison. The guy makes her go weak at the knees. Not a thing Heather had ever expected when she makes a last-minute plea to the famous sculptor to open her new business venture. But then he’s not your average sculptor.

He is so much…more.

There is something about him. Something she can’t explain. Maybe that’s it. A little mystery goes a long way. And she’d be willing to go all the way with him.

Not that she has time to go anywhere. Moving to a new town with her two children and her mother, and opening a new business, takes all her time and energy. There is no time for a man in her life. And she wouldn’t want one even if there was.

However, being with Tad makes anything possible. Even a happy ever after in the arms of a man she loves.

But just when Heather thinks she’s got it all worked out, her ex-husband shows up to ruin everything. Or so he thinks. But Heather has grown, she’s a different person. A new person.

With Tad by her side. She will succeed. Because when Tad looks at her with those soft, sensual eyes she can do anything. Be anything.

Most of all, Heather can be Tad’s mate. Forever.

This series connects in some ways to the Bear Creek series, the Bear Bluff series, the Return to Bear Bluff series… And especially to the Return to Bear Creek series.  Characters from all these series seem to visit in quite a neighborly fashion *grin* between Bear Creek and Bear Bluff… so if you haven’t checked them out the list of somewhat connecting series is on the Harmony Raines page.

Now, that is a very long and detailed Cover Description.  So, in reality, this review is going to be very short because – look up there –  <grin>.

Tad is the creative brother, the sculptor who doesn’t mind being on his own in his work of creating beautiful, emotional sculptures.  But being alone without finding his mate yet, well, that a different feeling.  But he’s having fun being one of baby Milly’s three daddies, enjoying seeing his brother Max and Josephine so very happy together – and a bit worried about how Jake is handling all of these changes.

His future is about to step into his workroom and change his life forever.  Heather has a lot on her plate with getting the Craft Barn up and running, moving to Bear Creek and leaving the jerk of her ex-husband in the dust.  The last thing she wanted to be was asking a favor of a famous local sculptor with the opening of the Craft Barn.  She’s not sure what hit her but she does know that her attraction to this handsome man was too fast for her comfort.  Yet that’s not going to stop her from finding out all she can about Tad because just maybe her future isn’t as alone as she thought it would be.

TAD is an easy, laid-back story with one ex-husband being a selfish jerk as the most drama.  I had fun with Heather and Tad, enjoyed the secondary characters — and I’m anxiously waiting for Jake’s mate to show, she’s got to be something special for this lonely bear.
