As a first-year university teaching assistant, historian Grant Fennell was quietly infatuated with a beautiful student in his class. Now the teacher-student taboo is gone, and he can finally pursue the unforgettable Carla Gill…but he doesn’t have much time to do it. He’s earned his PhD and is heading home to Ireland immediately to start a new job.

As luck would have it, Carla’s in desperate need of an expert who can help her unravel the Irish half of her family tree, and she’s willing to tag along.

Traveling to a foreign country with a man she hardly knows is the boldest risk the nervous artist has ever taken, but Carla can’t pass up the opportunity to learn about her late father’s roots and about herself. After battling years of depression, she’s ready to come out of her shell. She’s ready for passion again, and the devastatingly charming Grant awakens her boldness.

It only takes Grant a few days to be convinced that sexy, quick-witted Carla is still worthy of obsession, but Carla worries they’re moving too quickly. Playing off Grant’s assertive spontaneity, her long-stifled audacity is surfacing, and she’s certain he’ll become disenchanted. She’s not the saint he thought she was, and the torch he’s been carrying for her for so long might be overdue to burn out.

 

This is the second edition of a work originally published by Lyrical Press in 2013.

These women won't run from a fight...or true love.

Meet all the ladies of the Shrew & Company private investigation agency and the men who love them in the full series collection of the action-packed paranormal romance series.

Pursuing Patrick
After an unregulated research trial warped her DNA and turned her into an honest-to-goodness mutant, detective Dana Slade became an unwilling initiate into the mysterious paranormal world. The new were-cat Patrick O’Dwyer could be the perfect partner Dana didn’t know she needed, but not if she can’t convince herself that another chance at love is worth the risks.

Framing Felipe
Sarah Miller isn’t interested in a relationship with a man who cheats death for a living, but something about Felipe Castillo has her enthralled. Perhaps it’s because the handsome acrobat seems to have just as many secrets as her…or even more.

Bryan's Betrayal
Were-bear lieutenant Bryan Ridge needs Shrew & Company’s help in overthrowing his group’s Alpha, and investigator Tamara Ursu has all the right qualifications for the job. She can help him if she can get past the wealth of distractions. Bryan’s bear is sniffing around for a mate, and for some strange reason, Bryan makes Tamara sick. Literally.

Following Fabian
Solitary Fabian Castillo wants Astrid Falk to be more than his translator, and she just might be on the market for a new partner. But the last man she gave her heart to left her high and dry when she needed him. Committing to Fabian would require a leap of faith she’s not sure she can make, especially if there’s no net below to catch her if she falls.

Eric's Edge
Eric Falk is becoming a shifter with power that rivals his alpha, Maria Weisz is desperate to shut him out. Although he claims he loves her in spite of her hang-ups, she’s used to being lied to by the people who claim to love her. A Shrew and a Bear might make a formidable duo both on the job and off, but Maria can’t trust giving him her heart.

Promising Peter
Sweet Drea Ridge is the soothing mate Peter Ursu craves, and bold Peter is the protective companion Drea needs. But if the lonely hearts can’t convince themselves that they truly deserve each other, they’ll miss the only shot they’ll ever get at true love.

Saving Soren
Alpha Bear Soren Ursu hopes he can convince the witch Marcella Bailey to accept their connection, but she’s got a one-track mind for work. She might be perfectly suited to navigate the demands of one of Bear-kind’s most notorious families, but to save Soren from the obligations of his clan, she must be willing to let him rescue her as well.
