Dragon shifter, Emilia, has slept for hundreds of years on a bed of dragon treasure. Now she’s awake and is about to learn that the most valuable treasure is not gold or gems, but her true mate. 

Betrayed by a man who claimed to love her but who was not her true mate, Emilia has slept while the centuries slipped away. The world changed but she stayed the same, until the presence of her mate, Thorn, pulled her from her ancient slumber. With Thorn’s help, she hopes to embrace her new life. 

But will she ever be free when so many questions about her past remain unanswered? 

Thorn Manning knows dragon shifters are real. What he doesn’t expect, is for a dragon shifter to be his mate. What’s more, a dragon shifter who is from the old world. 

History is Thorn’s life. Whether reading ancient journals or finding forgotten relics, he loves bringing the past into the present for the world to enjoy. But Emilia is not something he plans to share. Ever. 

She is his and he will protect her from the past, present or future. 

Together Emilia and Thorn must unravel the secrets of what really happened centuries ago, so they can create a safe future for all dragon shifters.

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

Title:  Treasure Bear
Series:  Return to Bear Creek #19
Author:  Harmony Raines
Published:  June 3, 2018
My Rating:  4.5 stars

Emilia lies on her dragon treasure in a centuries long sleep maintained by a potion, a spell and a magical barrier that no one can release her from.  Her brother, Magnus, who had stayed with her at her side through the long sleep has awakened but neither he nor his mate nor their vast number of family and friends can release that barrier.  All they can do now is keep searching for the answer… when, in fact, the answer lived among them and his curiosity will end up being the answer to one puzzle and the beginning of even more questions to find answers for.

Treasure Bear is fast paced, full of action and answers.  Yet is also brings about even more questions… and characters to wonder about as well.  Thorn and Emilia’s romance is a combination of lighthearted joy and lingering doubts.  This modern day Indiana Jones must find the solution to his mate’s past for she is not fully out of danger, and awakening may have just put her in more jeopardy.  I loved seeing George’s character play a larger part in this story and so excited that he gets his own tale told up next.  We’ll bring along several of our old friends on this journey, and my own curiosity is now on high alert as well.  We’ve had mention of the large cats and the wolves around the Bear Creek, Bear Bluff general area.  I’m really hoping that those stories get told at some point for the glimpses I’ve gotten fascinate me with the possibilities.  In all, once again I was captured by the residents of Bear Creek and I would definitely recommend Treasure Bear along with the entire series and connected series to any Paranormal Romance or Shifter Romance reader who loves a good shifter story, puzzles to unravel and a love worth waiting for.
