For bear shifter Jamie, the army was easy compared to taking on the duties of a daddy bear to two orphaned children. When his best friend dies in a car crash, Jamie is solely responsible for Jasper and Juliet.

When he meets his mate, in the form of delectable Dani Darling, he is scared he will be torn between his love and duty toward the children, and his love and need for his mate.

Add in the minefield of being a single dad at the school gates, and he’s in for a bumpy ride.

Teacher Dani Darling has moved to Bear Creek for a fresh start. She’s known heartbreak and loss, and wants this fresh beginning to be uncomplicated, so she sets herself a rule - NO dating parents, or relatives, of the children in her first-grade class.

But she had not factored in Jamie, and the way he makes her feel.

Can she put her heartbreak behind her, and will Jamie still want her when her secret is revealed?

Find out in Daddy Bear.
Caroline has seen her brother Jamie find his mate, and his happily ever after. However, she can’t see the same happiness ever being hers since the man she loved died. Not that he would ever have been hers, fate had seen to that. But no matter how many times she reminds herself he belonged to another, her heart is still in pieces.

So a chance to climb a mountain, to ask reclusive movie star Eden Carter about some land, seems like the perfect opportunity to put her thoughts in order and let go of the past. Little does she know; her future is waiting for her at the top of the mountain - if she can only persuade him to come back down.

Everyone wanted a piece of him. Carter Eden was at the height of his career when an incident involving a fan made him turn his back on that life. Now his mate is here, and he knows that the only way they will ever be happy is if he deals with his past and goes back to the real world with Caroline.

Can these two unlikely mates find happiness?
He knows she’s here, somewhere close by, so why can’t he find her? Can fate really be so cruel?

Harlan can sense his mate. He has sensed her for months, and yet he can’t find her. Is he too old? Are his senses failing? Maybe it’s his imagination. Maybe it’s time to leave Bear Creek, and all his hopes behind.

Fiona has hidden away for centuries. Only when she met the people of Bear Creek and learned to trust them, did she dare reveal her other side. Only here has she acknowledged she is a dragon shifter. That’s what love does to a person, it allows them to be themselves. It allows them to trust, to believe.

But something is stirring out there. Something that calls to her heart and her soul.

She knows it’s time to reveal her true self. Whatever the cost. And, from experience, Fiona knows the cost only too well.
Just when it looks as if she is going to get her own happy ever after, fate has one more hand to play. Two girls are handed to social services by their stepmother. It’s not unusual, Fiona has seen it many times before—Five hundred and thirty-one—to be exact. But these two girls are special. Very special, and Fiona will sacrifice everything to give them the home they need.

Will her mate feel the same way? Or will she have to make the ultimate sacrifice?
