“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. 

Jenna is on the run with two children. Her job is to keep them alive. And to stop them falling into the hands of bad men, who want to use them to get to their mom who is an investigative reporter. But Jenna can’t do it alone. 

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?

Chell of the Blue Mountain clan isn’t a woman that backs down, even after she’s been kidnapped, and her leadership temporarily stolen in an underhanded coup.

Her soul mate is part of a package deal, though, and two scorching hot human firefighters wind up capturing her attention.

But Chell wasn’t looking for a human, much less two. Her world is dangerous, and her clan could benefit from the power of a shifter.

As a scientist, Talia Reed is used to things just making sense. So when a large sample of ice sent to her lab happens to be carrying a centuries-old Siberian man who claims to be the lord of winter, everything in her life is turned upside down. Alek’s tall, handsome, protective… and totally shouldn’t be alive. But somehow, even though he’s the one who was frozen, she’s the one who’s beginning to warm up!

Alek, lord of winter, has huge gaps in his memory and no ability to access the ice dragon powers that made him a force to be feared. But he does know he always goes after what he wants with the force of a winter storm, and right now that’s scientist Talia Reed, the tiny human woman who awakened him. His heart has been drawn to her from the moment they met, and he isn’t going to let anything, past or present, stand in the way of claiming her for his own!

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.

3. When all else fails, summon a guardian—make him a shifter, a beast of a man built to protect you, built to satisfy your every desire.

Kincaid’s appointment to a position of power is on hold after the accountant of House Ursa accuses him of stealing money. He knows someone is trying to frame him, but the question is who? The Queen of the bear shifters can only keep the accusation under wraps for a short time, so he must act fast. Of course, that would be a lot easier if his Queen hadn’t ordered him to take his accuser along with him. What the hell is he supposed to do with a human accountant in tow? 

Haley Meynard is perfectly happy in her world of numbers as the accountant to House Ursa. Like her, they obey set laws and rules. So, when she’s yanked from the comfort of her office and told to assist the same person she’s just exposed as being a thief, all the rules go out the window. Resisting will only see her lose her biggest client and the eight-figure-a-year payday. Now she has to work with the arrogant, handsome and completely out of control Kincaid. 

Thrown head-first into a world she never knew existed, Haley can’t help but latch on to the numbers as a safety line. They don’t lie, and they clearly show that Kincaid is the thief. He’s adamant about being innocent, and so she decides to humor him. That is until the facts start to support his claims. If she’s going to get to the bottom of it all, Haley is going to have to break some rules. The more time she spends with Kincaid, though, the harder it becomes for her to stay neutral. She wants him to be innocent, to stay out of prison…. To stay with her…
