A bear shifter in need of redemption. A mate in need of revenge.

Something called to Gunner. Something he could not describe. A need to go into the mountains.

He’d heeded the call even though he had no idea what he’d find. Certainly, he’d never expected to find his mate. Gunner had long stopped hoping she would walk into his life. Not that Sadie did walk into his life. She crawled, on all fours, determined to get down off the mountain and avenge the death of her friend.

But Gunner knew revenge led to ruin and death. Could he protect his mate from harm, even if that harm was self-inflicted?

They’d killed her friend and mentor.

Sadie couldn’t get the image of Professor Augustine, lying in a pool of his own blood, out of her head. No matter how dangerous it was she had to avenge his death and bring those responsible to justice.

But who could she trust?

Should she believe in the man—bear—who had found her in the mountains? Should she believe him when he calls her mate and tells her they are meant to be together forever? It all seems impossible. Sadie had accepted she would always be alone. People confused her. They said one thing and meant another.

But when she was with Gunner, everything made sense.

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.

These bachelor brothers are about to have their world turned upside down!

Max, Tad, and Jake think fate – and mates – have passed them by. Resigned to life alone, they have each put all their energy into their careers. However, change arrives in the small but perfectly formed guise of baby Milly. Orphaned when her mother overdoses on drugs, Milly brings out the protective side in all three bear shifter brothers.

Well, Jake might need a little persuading!

But that’s not all.

When Milly’s foster mom, Josephine, comes to visit, Max instantly knows she is his mate. Max is more than ready to open his heart and his home to Milly and Josephine. But Josephine has a hidden past, and as danger threatens, he will do whatever it takes to keep his new family safe.

Josephine has a past she’d rather forget. But visions of the abuse she suffered at the hands of an ex-boyfriend, are impossible to wipe from her memory. Not that she’s let his actions prevent her from building a good life for herself. One where she provides love and care for children in need.

However, she’s never let anyone else in. She’s never allowed herself to trust another man.

But now, Max tells her she is his mate. Josephine knows what that means. And she wants to be part of a family, a real loving family, for the first time. Can she open her heart to love?

Just when she finds the answer to that question, her past finally catches up with her.

He’s been hidden away for centuries. Now he intends to claim her heart.

Bear shifter, Fleur, has her career all mapped out. At least she had. However, as events rapidly unfold her world is turned upside down. Not least because she suddenly has a centuries-old dragon shifter as her mate. Can she help Doran find out the truth behind his Ancient Slumber, without losing sight of who she is and what she wants to achieve? 

After all, she isn’t some medieval damsel in distress and she certainly doesn’t need Doran to ask her father for her hand in marriage. He has been warned! 

Doran does not want to get on the wrong side of her bear who might not be able to breathe fire, but she’s fierce and ready to teach the old dragon some new tricks.

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.

Plus size model, Madison, is comfortable in her own skin. She’s worked hard to create a life she loves. But when bodyguard, Rob, is hired to protect her comfortable is the last word she’d use to describe the way he makes her feel. 

Their attraction is instant. And mutual.

Rob’s life is in turmoil. His sister’s mate is missing, presumed dead, and she is heartbroken. Rob would do anything to take away her pain and make it right for her and her two young children.

“Last time I looked we worked as Bear Creek Bodyguards, not Bear Creek Babysitters.” 

Army veteran, Flint, has protected people all his life. But children? He doesn’t know the first thing about children. 

Fate sidestepped this silverback bear shifter when it came to finding his mate and having bear cubs of his own. So when he’s asked to help protect a couple of children, Flint is not sure he’s the man for the job. 

However, fate might just have something special in store for Flint when he agrees to take the job. 

His mate.

One phone call later and Flint is on the way to help them. But when Jenna meets Flint, it soon becomes clear that he is offering more than his protection. He’s offering his love, loyalty, and—if needed—his life. 

Can these two fated mates work together to keep the children safe and make sure the bad men are bought to justice?
