Brokenhearted, non-shifter Rory Conri returns home to the Wolfden enclave. There’s only one thing she knows will help take her mind off of her ex: the annual Summer Solstice Ball. But those plans are shattered when her parents, the Wolf King, and his Consort, forbid her from attending. Their refusal stems from the fear of her curse—a ruinous birthright that prophesized the downfall of the Conri line the day Rory takes a mate. 

Determined, Rory sneaks into the ball anyway. There’s no reason for them to worry. Conri’s only mate wolves and no one would ever want a non-shifter without a wolf inside. But when a tall and ripped masked stranger claims that she’s his mate, Rory questions the life of solitude that her parents have thrust upon her. 

Adrien Bloodwing hates suits and masks, and he especially hates balls. Forced to attend by his dragon clan leader, Adrien dreads every second he’s at the Summer Solstice Ball until the fleeting scent of his mate catches his attention. He is immediately drawn in by her sultry curves and shocked when she tells him about some silly curse she carries. It’s a lie. At least he believed it was before she practically dropped dead in his arms after an innocent kiss. 

With Rory whisked away, Adrien is determined to save and protect his mate while also clearing his name of murder. But things only darken as the pair begin to unravel the lies of Rory’s past. Together, the two will have to face an evil that has haunted her entire life or forever be torn apart.

Small towns aren’t for her, but he could be. 

Sloan Kent believes in justice, for all. Humans and shifters alike. But when she’s assigned to a new, shifter-run, Supernatural Enforcement Agency squad, she’s suddenly regretting being open minded. Small town drama runs wild in Bearden and she doesn’t want any part of it. She’s just there to do her job… until she meets Lorne Bennett, that is. 

Hard muscles ripple underneath his button-up, and that cowboy hat doesn’t hide his piercing dark eyes. She knows better than to get involved with a bear, but the heart wants what it wants. Even when the heart wants a broody shifter she knows is bad news bears, literally. 

He likes his women feisty and wild.
Her having a gun is just a bonus.
 

Lorne Bennett doesn’t let anyone tell him what to do. Not his family, not his current alpha, and especially not some spitfire little human who thinks she’s going to uncover all his secrets. He has good reason to keep those buried, and he owes those on Black Claw Ranch a debt for protecting his past. 

But Sloan seems different like she could be the one to put his heart back together after all these years. Being with her could be dangerous though, for both of them.  

When their worlds collide Lorne and Sloan have to decide if their love really can conquer all when they’re confronted with the sins of the past. And if being mates can mend their broken hearts… or shatter them forever.

Joss Warren packs her bags to head off to the unforgiving wilds of Montana where she’s got a job as the new chef of Black Claw Ranch. Secretly, she hopes to heal her broken heart and learn more about her people. She’s heard about the good folks of Bearden, Montana. They are kind and generous, so people say. But her first run-in with a growly cowboy has her wondering if that’s just a tall tale. 

City-girl Joss has never met a man as rugged as Hunter Shaw. 

Tall, tatted, and Montana-tough, Hunter made his name riding bulls on the rodeo circuit. Nowadays, the handsome cowboy wrangles cows and tourists at the Bear Claw Ranch. Hunter is as wild and untamed as the Montana lands. 

Joss is sure his sultry gaze promises wicked pleasure. But Hunter hides a dangerous side and Joss can’t risk her fragile heart. 

Hunter, a bear shifter, understands horses and hard work. Not women. He’s had his heart broken and stomped on one too many times. But there’s something about the pesky, smart-mouthed red-head that wakens his bear. She’s wary though. The gorgeous, curvy girl is afraid. 

Of him. 

And maybe for good reason. If he were a gentleman, he’d give his skittish girl some room. And maybe he is a gentleman, but now’s not the time to find out. When traffickers stalk his pretty little mate, his animal ditches all good manners. 

His snarling bear is ready to mate, ready for cubs and family. He vows to hunt down any threat to keep his female safe…

A Lioness in Peril. 
Three years ago, Mara watched helplessly as hunters killed her brother. The men promised not to harm others if she complied with their evil demands. Now, she’s serving time in a cell beneath Bearden, trying to atone for the crimes they forced her to commit. 

Mara’s penance brings her face to face with a fierce and rugged and heavily tatted bear shifter, Hudson Vaughn. 

He stirs all sorts of feelings inside her. Desire. Yearning. Need. But now is not the time for that foolishness. The hunters have returned. Their demands are even more sinister. They want shifter children, and they want her too. 

Mara intends to confront the hunters. Alone. But Hudson has a different plan… 

Together they’ll attend a shifter auction, posing as a handler and leashed pet. It’s all just a fake act. A ploy. And her yanking his leash and taunting him is part of the act too. It’s working fine. Right up until the end of the night when all pretense falls away, the lights dim and the growly bear-shifter crowds her into a corner and makes a promise… 

I don’t need my bear to make you submit, kitty… 

Hudson Vaughn has a plan to set his mate free. First, he must convince Mara they’re fated to be together. Then, he needs to convince her he’ll protect her from every threat. Even the shifter-traffickers that murdered her brother. 

What starts as a plan to infiltrate the hunters’ auction, becomes something so much more. Mara poses as his handler, but she seems to enjoy her role a little too much. The entire evening, she delights in snapping his leash and full-on flirting with him. None of that was part of the plan. 

Little tease. 

His mate has a wild side. A naughty side he never imagined, but one he likes very much. His bear snarls and snaps, hungering to make Mara his. 

Hudson must destroy the evil forces that stalk Mara, so he can finally claim his sassy, curvy fated mate...

Take one protective, growly shifter.
Add his fated mate, a sassy woman who awakens his bear.
Stir in a marriage of convenience, a remote cabin in the woods and let simmer…
 

Everly Mather’s very terrible, no-good day is fixing to get a whole lot worse. To start off, her alpha announces he wants to mate with her, to produce an heir. When she gives him an emphatic nope, her guardians take her for a drive and abandon her on the side of a desolate road. 

The long hike home is punishment for her defiance. 

Her bad day takes another downturn when a big, hulking bear shifter stops for a friendly game of twenty questions. He seems to think she needs rescuing. He’s all kind of mad and snarling on account of her pride dumping her in the middle of nowhere. 

He refuses to mind his own business. 

And refuses to go away. 

When she insists she’s just fine without his help, thank you very much, Mr. Growly McBossy tosses her into his truck and hauls her out to his cabin in the woods. If her jaguar pride cast her aside they don’t deserve a fine little thing like her. He announces his plans to keep her. 

Period. 

Just a little neighborly protective custody… 

Everyone thinks bear shifter, Sawyer Strickland is gentlemanly… 

Yeah, that all goes right out the window the moment he finds the pretty little blonde on the deserted road. Everly’s lovely hazel eyes and sweet curves awaken his bear along with a whole lot of protective instincts. She doesn’t want his help? 

Too bad. 

She’s getting it anyway. There’s no way he’ll leave a vulnerable, albeit sassy, woman out in the middle of nowhere. 

Especially when said female is his mate. 

Instead of returning her to her people, he carries her off to his cabin. His hospitality doesn’t exactly win her over. Even after a few days, circling each other in tight quarters, she’s still a tad miffed over the whole deal. 

After a little time, she’ll come around. He’s sure. 

But what comes around instead is her pack alpha, spouting all sorts of nonsense about mating with Everly. Not happening. Sawyer’s ready to give the big cat shifter a beat down. He’s furious that Everly was left behind by her pride members. Also, she belongs to him. There’s that too. Just when things are about to get interesting, Everly surprises both men. 

She claims she’s already married. To Sawyer. 

Sawyer knows he can protect his woman with a marriage of convenience. 

Even if his possessive bear demands to claim his sweet, fiery mate.

A Bear spoiling for a brawl. 
Cole Strathorn fights fires. That’s all he’s ever wanted to do. He thrives on danger and protecting his clan. No one would mistake the six-foot-four, gruff bear shifter for a freaking baby sitter. But that’s exactly what he’s become thanks to an assignment from the town’s mayor. Cole’s new job requires him to keep an eye on the government scientist who has arrived in Bearden to study the shifters. 

Cole expects a clichéd nerd with horn-rimmed glasses and a pocket protector, but he’s pleasantly surprised to find his charge is a lovely, curvy and very appealing woman. A woman who smells like she might be more than an assignment. The shy but brilliant scientist might even be his mate. Her addicting scent certainly arouses his bear. 

A head for science, but a body for research.

But it grows harder to resist Cole’s charm. One wicked-hot kiss leads to another. Is Cole for real? Or is he just using his seduction skills to get information? Rylee’s had enough heartache for one lifetime and the deeper she falls for Cole, the more she worries he might not be what he seems.
