He’s an arrogant, reclusive artist, and a complete and utter prick. Why can’t I get him out of my head?

Ryan Raynard is driving me insane. First, he doesn’t deliver his paintings to my art gallery on time. Then, when I show up at his crumbling gothic mansion to collect them, he has the nerve to treat me like a piece of furniture.

If he wasn't so hot ... That messy hair, those come-to-bed eyes, the body of a Michelangelo statue … if only he saw me as something other than the mousy art curator trying to cramp his style. 

As if wrangling the temperamental artiste wasn’t enough, now I’m being chased by shapeshifting foxes, and a malevolent werewolf has put a price on my head. If I want to keep my job – and my life – I’m going to have to accept Ryan’s help. 

Ryan Raynard may be my only hope. If only I can keep my hands off him …

Bad Boy

Billionaire

Bear Shifter

Brock Tandell is the new Mayor of New Orleans. Most are envious of what he has and what he's accomplished, but he will defend his Mate and rebuild his city against all odds, especially when a group of Human Supremacists come after them!

Gia Carosa is about to start her new job, as the administrative assistant to New Orlean’s newly elected mayor, Brock Tandell. Brock’s life is already interesting enough, being a Bear Shifter and all, but it’s about to get downright exciting as an anti-shifter group turns violent.

There’s a natural divide between the paranormal and the human and mistrust is commonplace. So commonplace that The Human Order seems to have no trouble recruiting in its protest against shifters. But Brock and Gia will need to learn to trust each other in the face of unnerving odds if they are to escape this threat, and if there is going to be any chance of them finding love. Brock and Gia are left scrambling to defend their loved ones, and each other, in the face of a quickly growing threat that seems to be leaps and bounds ahead of them. To complicate matters the chemistry between them is sure to put “SCANDAL” in the headlines. 

This full length bear shifter paranormal romance novel has all the action, steam and true love that only a Fated Mates story can deliver!
