Cover Description:

This Christmas has been more naughty than nice for Hazel Granger. Her now very much ex-boyfriend stood her up for the vacation she’d painstakingly planned, leaving her all alone over the holiday season. But after getting lost in a snow storm, Hazel finds her way to the cabin of the most handsome man she’s ever seen in her entire life… but can she trust him after being burned once before?

From the moment he comes home to find her sleeping on his couch, Del Richardson recognizes Hazel as his fated mate. He knows she’s the only one for him, but how can he tell her there’s a surprise inside this parcel: that he can turn into an enormous grizzly bear!

The snow outside is heavy, but that doesn’t stop Hazel and Del from steaming things up inside. If only Del can find a way to reveal the truth, and make this Christmas truly naughty… in all the right ways.

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

Stand Alone Title

Hazel was taking a well deserved vacation over Christmas.  It was supposed to be shared with her no good, cheap boyfriend… make that ex-boyfriend since he blew her off and she rightfully dumped him.  Now she’s headed into the forest, along mountains roads in the middle of a blizzard.  Okay, so maybe she should have stayed at the airport, but she wanted… needed to get to the rented cabin and just relax.  No chance of relaxing any time soon in this weather.  One moment the car was stuck in mud on the edge of the road, the next she was tumbling down a hillside.  Thankfully unhurt she had a decision to make.  Stay with the car and chance being buried under feet of snow… or walk to her rented cabin.  A light relatively nearby that could be seen through the trees made her choice much easier.

Del had come home to his family’s isolated cabin in the woods.  Sure it was tiny, but it was all they’d had when he was growing up and it was sold after his father’s death to pay off debts.  He was grateful that his success in business made it possible to buy it back years later.  But right now he was on vacation, the first one he’d actually taken in more years than he wanted to count.  Letting his bear run free was the best present he could give himself.  It felt amazing to just run without a care in the world.  He’d held his bear in for too long but he’d not make that mistake again.  Finally tired and hungry, Del headed for home, shifted and walked into the cabin… to find a beautiful woman asleep on his couch.

Hazel and Del give us a fun, sexy romance in The Bear Comes Home For Christmas.  Just the right length for a quick read by your own fireplace.  I enjoyed their story very much.  If you’re looking for a short, sexy romance this holiday season, then this one should be on your reading wish list.

I read this story through my Kindle Unlimited subscription. For ten dollars a month you get access to thousands of really great stories across all genre, and the authors get paid for you reading the story through to the 100% mark. It’s a win-win. Probably the best 10 bucks I spend a month.
