Baby It’s Cold Out Bear
(Holiday Short Story)
Emry Mason doesn’t expect to be pulled out of an icy ditch by a registered bear shifter, and she certainly doesn’t expect her rescuer to be as alluring as Graylan Young. He’s rented a room at the house she lives in, and with every growly encounter, he’s laying claim to her heart. But Graylan isn’t much for the festive season, and to win Emry over, she has one rule. Must love the holidays.
Graylan is only in town for a little while before his inner animal will demand he move on. But when he meets Emry, his life is turned upside down. Not only is she beguiling and different from every woman he’s ever met, but she has him wishing he could ignore his nomadic instincts. He might not be into the holidays, but suddenly all he wants for Christmas is to settle down with the woman he’s falling for.
Shelter Me Home
The Alaskan wilderness is no home for the faint of heart, but Farrah Fennel has lived in the small town of Cooper Landing before and knows exactly what to expect. At least, she thinks she does. One chance meeting with her high school crush, Aanon Falk, and she’s second guessing her decision to run from the city.
Farrah has come home hiding a secret. Out of options and with nowhere to go, she has to rely on Aanon’s offer for her to live in a rustic cattleman’s cabin up on his homestead. And if she can prove she is an asset, he just might give her a life she never dreamed of.
Aanon’s life is complicated, but when Farrah blows into town, he’s tempted to let his guard down and enjoy life again. She’s funny and vivacious, and he can’t keep his mind off her for long. If she finds out what has turned his life upside down though, she’ll leave his homestead for good. And the more he gets to know her, the more Farrah feels like his last shot at happiness.
Coveted by the Bear
Mira Fletcher is crazy. At least that’s what her sleepy hometown thinks. She lives in a dilapidated house in the wilderness with her imaginary uncle, talks to soup cans, and rumor has it she’ll eat anything. That, and she believes in bear men.
It isn’t love at first sight when she finds Caleb McCreedy, the town’s most prominent and promising member, bleeding all over her front yard. He is easy on the eyes but light on manners, and with one look at his attacker, she’s pretty sure she knows exactly what he’s about to turn into.
A McCreedy always pays his debts, and Caleb owes Mira for saving him. He gives into an obsession with improving her future for reasons he can’t himself understand just as his world crashes down around him. Something dangerous is lurking beneath his surface now, and the only one who can settle his animal is the town crazy.
With an explosion of admitted secrets, Mira’s dark past comes back to haunt her, and she must decide whether to let Caleb go, or to allow him to save her back
