Heat up your Valentine’s day with a hot shifter romance for FREE!
Do you love audio books? I adore them! I love listening in my car or just when I’m I’m working around the house. And Michael E Smith, the narrator for Bear Hearts has a voice to die for.
Bear With Me, book 5 in the Animal in Me series is coming soon. I’m hoping for an April release. So, to hook y’all on the series, I’m giving away book 2 to get you started. All the books are stand alone reads, although the characters crossover in all the books.
Each book is my favorite as I write it- I am kind of fickle that way, lol. But bear Hearts has a special meaning for me, as it is dedicated to my sweet momma and her battle with cancer. She had Primary Central Nervous System Non-Hogkins Lymphoma. (quite a mouthful, right?) and then breast cancer. She was declared cancer free for three years. Something that had never happened in all the years her oncologist had dealt with the disease. She was written up in medical journals. When she was diagnosed she had been given six months to live. Then the cancer reappeared- something once again the oncologist said “just didn’t happen. Within three months we had lost her.
It was the hardest time in my life. My mom was more than my mother-she was my best friend, my biggest supported, and the best person I have ever known. She was strong, self-confident, generous, loyal, and had a heart bigger than the Pacific Ocean. She never met a person who wasn’t an instant friend. I always envied her outgoing personality, I am basically a shy person and struggle horribly at events to put on an personable persona and not hide in a corner. My mom never met a stranger, she would talk to anyone, anywhere. She had a brilliant smile that lit lit up a room and crystal blue eyes that saw only the good in people.
I think it apropos to remember her on Valentine’s Day, because while we certainly didn’t have a romantic love. She was the greatest love of my life and I still miss her every day.
Bear Hearts Blurb:
Fate brought them together. Lies keep them apart. Love could set them free. All they need is to trust in Bear Hearts.
Fate has dealt bear shifter Martin Kruger and rotten hand. His destined mate, Dr. Elizabeth Montrose, is the enemy and suffers from a fatal illness. He‘s waited over two hundred years for a mate he might never have the chance to claim.
Elizabeth has long ago given up dreams of love, marriage and children. Her life is her research and now that is gone in a puff of smoke, thanks to the bears of Honey Corners. A tiny spark of hope blooms in her heart when the handsome bear tells her they are mates, but will that instinctual bond be enough to overcome all that stands between them?
Book 2 in the Animal in Me series is Bear Hearts
His bear was primal, feral, animal. It knew only one thing. They had met their mate. The bear had no qualms or reservations. It didn’t care if she was good or evil. It wanted only to mate, protect and love. Too bad the man couldn’t feel the same way.
How could he feel desire for such a woman? He should want to strangle her with his bare hands not throw her down and mate her until she screamed his name. He was verrückt, crazy with mating frenzy, that’s all it could be.
He downed the rest of the beer and set the bottle on the table. Anger burned in his gut like hot coals. Lust poured gasoline on the coals and lit the fire. Then grief drizzled down over it all, turning the fire to smoke and ashes.
This was getting him nowhere. He could analyze it until he was blue in the face, but it wouldn’t change the facts. Why did he keep rehashing it? He needed to take a shower and at least try to get a little sleep. He had to face his Sippe in the morning.
Maybe Bern could help him find an answer. His friend and mentor had always helped him in the past, always stood by his side. Maybe there was a way? Who was he kidding? Himself, obviously.
Martin’s shoulders sagged, so weary now he wondered if he could drag himself up the stairs to his bedroom. What was the point in going on? He had nothing left to live for. His dream of a mate and cubs was lost.
Two hundred years of waiting and searching for that perfect soul mate and she turns out to be the enemy. Unsuitable. Unfit. Evil.
A single tear slid from his eye and he viciously wiped it away. Many bears never found their mates and lived out their lives simply enjoying the companionship of willing females. He had a duty to the Sippe. He could do the same.
