Bear shifter Nate Dean is the joker of team South-One. The prankster. The one without a dozen skeletons hidden in his closet. He is what he is, and that’s always been good enough, until now. Now he needs to be more. To step up and be the person his fated mate needs him to be. He knows he can be the man to heal Heather’s heart, to show her exactly how a woman should be treated and introduce her to a life filled with laughter. 

She needed time. Space. 

But he’s willing to wait forever, if that’s what it takes for her to realize he’s not going anywhere, that he’d never, ever hurt her. That they’re meant to be together. 

Heather Hastings is adjusting to life as a widow. A part of her feels guilty for not grieving her husband’s death, but after everything Toby put her through—the years of abuse, not to mention the endless lies—she can’t bring herself to miss him. In reality, the only thing thing she owes him is a huge thank you for bringing her to Heartsridge, somewhere she’d like to call home. She has real friends for the first time, her son is happy, and there’s a certain man who makes her toes curl and laughter break free from the void inside her chest. 

It’s second chance at life. A chance to make her own decisions and carve a place in the world. Though she’s only ever known the dark side of a man’s love before, Nate is a man carved from honor and integrity. His large, muscular body and sinful eyes have all kinds of naughty thoughts popping into her head, often at completely inappropriate times. If she can find a way to let go, take another chance on love, she could have the life she’s always dreamed of. But is she willing to risk her heart again? 

When a friend is put in jeopardy and harsh truths are uncovered, the real danger to the town is finally revealed. Heather has some tough decisions to make and Nate has to come to terms with reality: he can’t protect his mate from everything … though he’s willing to risk everything and try. 

Sexy shifters and their feisty mates who aren’t shy about loving each other – so, this is an adult, 18+ reader tale.

The author strongly suggests that South-One Bears be read in order as events and people flow from one story to the next.

Bear shifter Jake Hunter is the resident psycho of team South-One. He lives his life by his own set of rules, screw the consequences or what anyone else might think. His rules are simple: no one is allowed to get too close. The reason? Because they might die. So why is he even wasting time thinking about Harper and what it would be like to be with a woman like her? Because he’s a fool, that’s why.  

Harper Kelly has adjusted pretty well to being a newly bitten and turned fox shifter. No more traveling the world, chasing the perfect picture. She’s stuck in Heartsridge with the rest of the registered shifter population, and she’s fine with it. Honest. Or, she would be if it wasn’t for a certain man winding her up, flashing his chiseled abs and a whole lot more, his eyes daring her to do something about it. Oh, and he happens to be her neighbor. Temptation in a wood clad cabin, only two minutes from her own front door? She’d be knocking on that door with a bottle of something and a smile on her face if it wasn’t for two things. One, it’s Jake, who won’t even have a civil conversation with her. Two, she has the strangest feeling that he might be her fated mate. A booty call would be fine. But, love? No thank you.  

Unfortunately, Fate has a way of taking things into its own hands and Harper has a need to prove herself as useful. Throw in Jake’s overprotective nature and inability to relinquish control, and the pair might find themselves fast reassessing their options.  

And let’s not forget the Purists who are trying to destroy Heartsridge. They’re still causing all kinds of trouble. 

But, when a man who won’t let anyone get close and a woman who’s been burned by love before finally stop running from the truth, anything can happen.

Team South-One Bear shifter Brent Casey has a secret. He’s not the calm, easy going guy everyone thinks he is. Even his team aren’t aware of the battle he fights daily to stay in control. Underneath his skin lives his beast. Sounds like every normal, regular shifter, right? Only his bear is broken, ready to erupt at the slightest loss of control. The quiet, regulated life of the shifter town of Heartsridge is the only thing keeping him sane.

But someone is threatening the town, trying to destroy it. Spies hide in the shadows and it’s his job to track them down. Enter his brother, Michael, unofficial leader of the rogues and the last person he ever wanted to see again. They have to work together, and it’s taking everything Brent’s got not to blow a fuse. Throw in a strange woman, with fiery hair and soulful gray eyes that he can’t forget, and he’s near breaking point. He has a town to protect, yet he can’t stop thinking about the fragile human. She doesn’t smell like his fated mate, so who is she to him, and why does he care?

Doctor Emma Kew’s luck is running out. The medical specialists have informed her that they’ve done everything they can, and that all she has left to look forward to is a miracle. Focused and armed with a streak of stubbornness a mile wide, she goes to Heartsridge to find a solution. To find a shifter, actually. The original plan was that any shifter would do, but when a large, scowling man nearly mows her down in the street, she makes a snap decision. She wants him. The man with the tortured eyes that see straight into her soul. He’s the one who’ll save her.

But when the threat to the town escalates and Brent’s world starts falling apart, will Emma find a place by his side? She might be the one to give him everything he’s ever wanted. She might also be the one to finally destroy him.

Fate can be cruel and control sometimes nothing but an illusion. Decisions have consequences and repercussions. Is Brent ready to face the truth and do what needs to be done?

Team South-One Bear shifter Cade Ayers has been tasked with the mission of bringing a rogue fox shifter in for questioning, something that should be relatively easy, since all intel points to the shifter being only a boy. He already feels bad for the kid, but it isn’t his job to pass judgment. That would happen back home, in the shifter town of Heartsridge. Finding himself on the business end of a rifle certainly makes things a little more interesting. It isn’t every day a woman takes his breath away and waves a gun at him. This little, curvy spitfire is armed, spooked, and stubborn as hell. Lucky for him, she might also be his fated mate.

All fox shifter Mina Foxglove wants is to be left alone to work her farm and survive every day as it comes. Actually, that’s a lie and she knows it. What she really craves is to follow her dreams and have a life beyond waking up at the ass crack of dawn to work her fingers to the bone. But life isn’t fair and dreams are just that, right? When a group of men arrive looking for her brother, her first instinct is to fight. Then she lays eyes on him. A bear shifter with a body built for sin and a warmth in his eyes that has her questioning everything she’s ever been told. That inter-species relationships are wrong. That the shifter town of Heartsridge is a bad place.

That a man like Cade Ayers couldn’t possibly be her fated mate.

But, sweet thunder clouds, everything inside her screams that he is. Worse, judging from the heated interest in his eyes, he’s dangerously close to figuring it out. A wink and grin, and she knows she’s screwed. He’s not going to let her go without a full investigation … of the up close and personal kind.

Everything is different.

Six years ago, the Registration Act forced shifters out into the open and the world changed. Towns were created to provide a safe haven for those shifters who chose to follow the law, and those who didn’t were declared rogue.

Heartsridge is one of the few shifter towns in existence, guarded and protected by special teams of bears and wolves. Their job: to protect the right for shifters to live and love, and for the space to run free as nature intended. Because not all humans found the truth easy to accept–that they’re no longer the dominant species. Tourism keeps the town thriving, humans able to visit and stay for a week, but then they have to leave.

It’s the law.

As the Alpha of Bear Team South-One, it’s Austin Ford’s job to secure the perimeter of the town from possible threats and make sure the visiting humans follow the rules. No exceptions, and that includes the beautiful, curvy human woman he finds trespassing in his forest. Defiant and frustratingly stubborn, everything about the gorgeous human calls to the bear inside him. Before he’s even had chance to snarl, she’s got the furry oaf of a bear wrapped around her little finger, leaving the man confused and trying to catch up. But he has his suspicions. He’s pretty sure he’s just met his fated mate.

Unlike the other tourists, Leona Kelly isn’t visiting Heartsridge to snag a shifter. She’s here to find her missing sister. A woman on a mission, she has no interest in shifters, no matter how devastatingly attractive they might be. Or he might be. Austin. The big, burly bear shifter who’d thrown her over his shoulder and hauled her out of the forest. He says he wants to help, but can she trust him? Then a shocking discovery changes everything. Leona no longer wants to leave, but she’s not allowed to stay. Austin is the only one she can turn to for help.

Winning Connie back is the only thing I have left to live for...
Bear Shifter Ralph Everson escaped the hectic pace of the city and returned to his roots in Craggstone Town, but not before he managed to screw up his life and hurt the only woman he’s ever loved–his unclaimed true mate, Connie. So, he does the only thing a man in his situation can. He waits for her to forgive him. Watches over her and keeps her safe. He still loves her and, before everything had gone wrong, he was pretty sure she had loved him back. So … patience. Yeah, not exactly his thing.

But then someone hurts Connie. Right in front of him.

Her time is up. No more waiting around. He wants a second chance to prove that he can be the man she needs.  

He’s the only man I’ve ever loved and the only man I hate…
Connie has spent years putting her life back together after Ralph Everson ripped it apart, building her little bakery business into a town favorite and throwing all her energy into ignoring the tall, sinfully handsome man who refuses to leave her alone. Even the memories of his kisses have been banished and locked away. She’s safe. Fine. A little frustrated, but she’ll survive.

Then, fate decides fine isn’t good enough. Disaster strikes, a deadly fire ripping everything away from her in an instant. To make matters worse, he is the one to save her.

Now he’s back in her life, invading her space and starring in her dreams. His help is the last thing she wants to accept, but she doesn’t have a choice. She doesn’t have anyone else.

She might need him, but it doesn’t mean she has to like it. Ralph Everson broke her heart once before and she’s sworn he’ll never get close enough to do it again.

He burns away the memories…
The day Fire Chief Max Everson strolled into Jeanie’s life she knew she had a battle on her hands. Ripped and handsome, he didn’t seem the type to take no for an answer, but she had told him the truth when she said she wasn’t looking for that kind of thing. No flirting or kissing, and most definitely not a fling. She’d been burned before, lost someone she loved, and she wasn’t risking her heart again.

No matter how hot a guy happened to be, or how he could make a woman tremble from a single touch.

They say I have a savior complex…
That’s what Max is telling himself when he looks at Jeanie, with her big brown eyes and curves that have him fighting to draw breath. She needs saving and he’s a sucker for a sad smile. That she works for him is a small complication, but it’ll be fine. He’s not looking for love.

The fact that he’d do anything to make her smile—anything—should have had alarm bells ringing. His bear claiming that she’s his true mate? Big hint. Huge.

Yup. Max’s life is about to get a lot more complicated.

A healer…
Doctor Jack Everson is home at last, and this time it’s for good. He’s tired of living life alone with no mate to complete him. When duties take him up to the Smithrock wolf pack, the last thing he expects is to run smack bang into his true mate in his home town. Gorgeous, with curves to die for, she’s everything this bear shifter ever dreamed of. So, instead of pinning her against the wall and staking his claim, he offers her a job. His brothers think he’s an idiot. Hell, he thinks he’s an idiot. But her eyes are haunted by the past…and he’s praying for a holiday miracle.

Danger closing in fast…

Merrie’s heart says Craig is the one…but when she uncovers a shocking secret from her past, will it destroy their chance at happiness?
