The bear that fostered her is about to have cubs of his own. Her big brother and her best friend are leaving on their honeymoon.
And her body has decided she needs a swift kick in the butt before she winds up a spinster.
A rare second heat has her heading for the hills—the same hills prowled by Joshua Reeves, her brother’s new second in command and the pack’s alpha cat.
Emphasis on cat.
Clover Hughes doesn’t do cats. Members of a pride in California slaughtered her parents and hunted her until she was on the brink of death. A crazy she-cat in Night Falls shot her with a poisoned bullet.
Wash, rinse and repeat—as many times as it takes to sink in.
Clover Hughes doesn’t do cats. She knows that. Her heart and brain know that.
But the rest of her body isn’t listening.

Environmental lawyer Gemma Fine is leaving a disastrous day at work when her best friend calls with an emergency. Owen Caryl has more than one bundle of trouble on his hands, but it’s his best friend, not a lawyer, that he needs.
To prevent a family emergency from turning into a tragedy, Gemma pretends to be Owen’s fiancée. That means taking him, and his troubles, into her home.
The fake engagement would be easier if she hadn’t spent half her life desiring Owen. Easier still if she didn’t have his big, hard body in bed beside her, sharing his heat, a rasp in his voice as he captures her hand and pulls her to him.
She desperately needs to know if it’s desire burning in his dark brown gaze…
Or tomorrow’s reflection of her broken heart.

With eight years in the Marines, five of them in Special Forces, Lucas Weaver has witnessed too many marriages end in tears. He swears off the idea of his own nuptials until his best friend invites him home to serve as best man.
Now Lucas is face-to-face with Theresa Hale, his best friend’s curvy sister. From protective to passionate, every feeling he’s tried to forget having for Theresa comes rushing back.
Theresa Hale is no shrinking violet. She’s independent—well, she has her own apartment. That counts, right? Oh, and she has two jobs—except she made one up to hide the fact she’s paying the rent by writing dirty, sweet romances. She’s had her share of boyfriends, too, even if they treated her like a safety school—something to get into as a last resort when all the “better” (thinner) girls turn them down.
And, like every modern, independent woman, she has a secret. She’s madly in love with Lucas Weaver. Too bad he’s perfect and her brother’s best friend.
