Jasper Heartwell needs to find a mate before Christmas. 

Jasper is a dragon on a mission. If he doesn’t find his mate by his twenty-fifth birthday, he’ll lose his ability to shift, and be stuck as either a human or a dragon forever. Luckily, his birthday is on Christmas Day. What woman could resist the spark of romance during the most wonderful time of the year? 

Abigail George hates Christmas. 

Most wonderful time of the year? Curvy Abigail learned long ago what a lie that is. She hates the fake snow, the cheesy carols, the hordes of shoppers that save their Christmas cheer for everyone except shop workers—and most of all, she hates going home to her empty apartment on Christmas Eve. 

Jasper knows Abigail’s the one for him the moment he sees her. But can the Christmas dragon win his mate’s heart, when Christmas is the one thing she hates the most?

For most people, Christmas is a time to celebrate with family and friends, but not for Chloe Lewis. She plans to spend it as she does every other day— alone, escaping the harsh realities of the world through her art. Painting mountainous landscapes reminds her of the one brief time in her life when she didn’t feel so alone. The hallmark grizzly bear she incorporates into each and every painting has the same golden-brown eyes as the only friend she’d ever known. 

Sam Brown was only eight years old when Chloe moved to the small mountain town he and his family called home, but his bear knew right away that she was the one for him. In a cruel twist of fate, Chloe was taken away, but he’s never forgotten her – or what she is to him. 

When Sam’s cousin comes home for the holidays and shows him a painting he’d seen of a very familiar looking bear and signed simply “Chloe”, it might just be the break he’s been hoping for. A winter storm is coming but nothing is going to stop Sam from finding her and bringing her home. 

After all, Christmas is the time for miracles…

Outlaw grizzly shifter, Trigger Massey, has been on the naughty list most of his life, but things are different now. He’s got a new mate, is in a race to save his ranch, and is the brand-new alpha of the Two Claws Clan. Add to that, his mate, Ava, has a serious problem with Christmas, and Trigger has his work cut out for him. This is his first Christmas as leader of his Clan, and he’s taken it as a personal challenge to make it perfect. The only problem? Ava never wanted perfect. 

Ava Dorset just needs to get through December, set up her business, save the ranch, and be the best mate she can be to Trigger. He’s a big brawler, who raises his fists first and asks questions later. They’re fresh out of a war with the local cougar clan and looking to stay on the straight-and-narrow until she can get their business off the ground, but the boys find trouble wherever they go and they’re demolishing her plans. All she needs to do is get their focus off the holiday, and back on saving the ranch, but the more Trigger works to get her holiday spirit back, the more she thinks perhaps December isn’t so bad.

Christmases haven’t been very merry for Roman Calaway ever since he left his clan of griffin shifters twelve years ago after a terrible argument with his clan leader. But now he’s back in town for the holiday season, and isn’t looking forward to facing up to the ghosts of his past – not to mention the family he hasn’t seen in years. That is, until the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen comes to town, with a little lost griffin cub bundled in her arms. 

Party decorator Mia Braddock isn’t relishing the thought of Christmas. With nothing but work to fill her time, the holiday season just doesn’t seem that festive. When she comes across a griffin cub lost in the snow, she doesn’t know what kind of strange creature she’s found – she only knows that it needs her help. It seems like a Christmas miracle when she’s able to find the only vet in town – who also happens to be the most ridiculously hot man she’s ever laid eyes on. 

Roman and Mia have an instant red-hot connection, but with a clan of secretive griffins to deal with and a snow storm closing in around them, will this Christmas turn out to be a dream – or a disaster?

Crystal never imagined she’d have to spend Christmas trapped in a tiny cabin with the most infuriating bear shifter in her clan. Tristan Hunter is every woman’s fantasy. Mesmerizing chiseled abs, piercing blue eyes, and a naughty smirk are enough to drive any woman wild. But not Crystal. Tristan’s cocky, unpredictable, and alpha to the core. She can’t stand him, but her bear’s been lusting after him for years.

Snowed in together with only a log burning stove to keep them warm, she’ll do everything in her power to resist his seductive glances and sinfully tempting lips. He can alpha her all he wants, but she’s not going to give in… Not even a little.

Christmas is supposed to be a time of joy. Can the Glacier pack come together and help each other through their problems? Does someone really mean it when they say they don’t want a present? How many Pinterest decorations is too many? And will someone get a baby for Christmas?

Declan and his brothers always volunteer to work the Christmas Holidays. Why? Because they know how important family is. And since none of them have a family of their own, they think it’s only fair for others to enjoy this special time of year.

However, this year, Declan, the Sheriff of Bear Bluff, is feeling like a bear with a sore head. He wants to have a mate, he wants to have a family. So when he meets his brothers for their traditional before-Christmas-shifts-begin-drink, he is feeling like Scrooge–all bah humbug!

What he doesn’t know, is fate is about to reward him in the best way ever.

Maria needs help, but where the hell is the sheriff?

When her sister died, Maria came to Bear Bluff to be the sole guardian of her nephew, Jason. Thrust into this strange town, she feels like an outsider. Worse, she is sure Jason sees her as an evil stepmother and has now run off up the mountain.

Scared he is going to freeze to death in the snow, she turns to the one man who should be able to help her, the sheriff. Because that’s his job, right? Only when she first meets him, his behavior is so strange, she wonders if he’s just a guy in fancy dress. Is it possible the sheriff can pull himself together and help her find her nephew?

And why does he keep looking at her in a way that makes her stomach go all funny?
