Her family or her heart? She made the wrong choice once before. Can her heart survive it a second time?  

Because of one bad decision—a no good, lying, son-of-a-bitch of a man—Kira Jackson became estranged from her tight knit family. She would do anything to rebuild the relationship with her bear clan instead of the life she is currently living. Alone. So when she meets the sexy shifter, Nash North, it doesn’t matter how hot he makes her blood boil. She’s not about to make the same mistake twice.  

 From the moment Nash lays eyes on the curvy, sassy she-bear, he knows she’s something special. She’s also trouble, because Kira is the exact opposite of what he should be looking for in a mate. With every instinct in his body going wild, his animal is unleashed with a ferocity Nash has never experienced before. He’s not just attracted to her, Nash needs her. 

 Kira can’t deny the attraction between them, but she can never let anything happen with Nash. Certainly nothing serious. While the man is a sexy as sin, he’s too cocky for his own good, and worst of all…a wolf. 

 If Kira gives in to the need that runs through her veins, she’ll put everything at risk—including the possibility of ever reuniting with her clan again. Faced with the impossible choice between love and family, Kira must learn whether to trust to her instincts or whether she’s destined to make the same mistake all over again.

**Reader note: Hers to Take is a full length stand alone bear shifter novel and the first in the Grizzly Ridge Series. No Cliffhangers! This series contains: strong, sassy, curvy women; sexy alpha males; steamy shifters and sizzling sex scenes.

About the author

 Like a lot of my readers, I'm a busy mom. It often feels like life is pulling us in a million different directions, which is why I love to write romance!

There's nothing better than knowing you have an escape waiting for you at the end of a long day in the form of a good book.

I'm lucky enough to live in the shadow of the Canadian Rocky Mountains in the foothills of Alberta, where I can write the stories I love. Whenever I get the chance, I escape into those amazing mountains and I can usually be found sitting with my feet in the lake, working on my next book.

As well as contemporary  and paranormal romance novels, I also like to write women's fiction and my collection of stand alone novels are all part of the Escape Collection. I'm always trying something new, so stay tuned to see what's next!

The love at The Springs continues with Book Four in the McCormicks Series.  


For eight years, Evie Rose has managed just fine on her own, running a business and raising her son, Jonah. But when Jonah’s father reappears on the scene, she risks losing everything if she can’t prove she provides a stable family environment for her son. And fast.   After watching his parents love dissolve in heartache, Declan McCormick is single by choice, and has dedicated his life to helping others. So when the super sexy, fiercely independent, Evie Rose asks for his help, there’s no way he can say no. Especially since she needs him to be her fake fiancée. After all, anything that means stealing a kiss or two, seems like a good deal.   It’s not supposed to be real, but the longer Evie spends with Declan, the closer they get and not only does it start to look real, it also starts to feel more real than anything she’s ever felt before. The only problem is, Declan only sees her as a project, just someone else he can help. And when everything starts to unravel, tough decisions have to be made, quickly.   Evie will do anything to keep her son, and the life they’ve built. Even if it means closing her heart to something she’s never felt before. Declan didn’t think love was possible, but if he doesn’t open his eyes to see what’s in front him, he could lose the family he’s grown to love—forever.

 For Chelsea McCormick, living in Cedar Springs is supposed to be temporary, nothing more than a chance to slow life down so that she can sort out the chaos of her life. Period. The painfully quiet lifestyle in a tiny, mountain town with a half-brother she barely knows—and certainly doesn’t like very much—is not where she sees herself for more than a couple of months. 
But when two very different men vie for her attention, Chelsea finds her beliefs challenged in ways she never thought possible. The owner of the town’s newest café, Scott Harding, has always loved the small town life. Settling down in a place with a sense of community, like Cedar Springs, then falling in love and starting a family is Scott’s idea of perfection. Is it possible to have the life he craves? Scott has had his doubts, until he meets Chelsea McCormick, a woman who makes everything he’s ever wanted, seem possible. The problem is, Scott isn’t the only man interested in Chelsea. New to town himself, Lucas Lee has been hired as the contract manager of Cedar Springs latest multifamily development. Driven and ambitious, Lucas sees this project as a turning point in his career, catapulting him into a more prestigious position, far from Cedar Springs. While Lucas has never been interested in a serious relationship, Chelsea just might be special enough to change his mind. As summer winds down, Chelsea realizes it should be time to move on. But now, she’s not so sure. Things in Cedar Springs have just started to get interesting with two available and smokin’ hot men who’ve just moved to town. Men who represent two very different paths. Men who both want her… Love, adoration and a future? Or, excitement, passion and the unknown? One man appeals to who she wants to be, and one to who she realizes she’s always been. How can she possibly choose?
