Bear shifter Nate Dean is the joker of team South-One. The prankster. The one without a dozen skeletons hidden in his closet. He is what he is, and that’s always been good enough, until now. Now he needs to be more. To step up and be the person his fated mate needs him to be. He knows he can be the man to heal Heather’s heart, to show her exactly how a woman should be treated and introduce her to a life filled with laughter.
She needed time. Space.
But he’s willing to wait forever, if that’s what it takes for her to realize he’s not going anywhere, that he’d never, ever hurt her. That they’re meant to be together.
Heather Hastings is adjusting to life as a widow. A part of her feels guilty for not grieving her husband’s death, but after everything Toby put her through—the years of abuse, not to mention the endless lies—she can’t bring herself to miss him. In reality, the only thing thing she owes him is a huge thank you for bringing her to Heartsridge, somewhere she’d like to call home. She has real friends for the first time, her son is happy, and there’s a certain man who makes her toes curl and laughter break free from the void inside her chest.
It’s second chance at life. A chance to make her own decisions and carve a place in the world. Though she’s only ever known the dark side of a man’s love before, Nate is a man carved from honor and integrity. His large, muscular body and sinful eyes have all kinds of naughty thoughts popping into her head, often at completely inappropriate times. If she can find a way to let go, take another chance on love, she could have the life she’s always dreamed of. But is she willing to risk her heart again?
When a friend is put in jeopardy and harsh truths are uncovered, the real danger to the town is finally revealed. Heather has some tough decisions to make and Nate has to come to terms with reality: he can’t protect his mate from everything … though he’s willing to risk everything and try.

After three and a half decades of aimless purpose in Cadia, bear shifter Noah Landeau is in need of a change. Not content with something small, he decides to leave his homeland behind to go live among the humans. The Cadian embassy is expanding its guard team, and he volunteers to head up the trio of shifters being assigned there. Maybe a change of scenery is just what he needs. Upon arrival in the town of Cloud Lake, it doesn’t take him long to confirm he’s made the right choice. While following one of the senior guards around, he comes into contact with a woman that can drive his bear crazy with nothing more than a look. He knows she’s special, but even Noah never anticipated just how integral she would be to his world.Angela Breeson was sweaty and tired the first time she saw him. Having just finished teaching one of her active-wellness classes designed for mothers and infants, she wasn’t looking pretty at all. Not in her mind at least, but the way the tall, broad-shouldered shifter with incredible eyes of ocean blue stared at her seemed to suggest he thought otherwise. He was gorgeous, and for some reason wanted nothing more than to be close to her. There didn’t seem to be any reason not to let him in to her life. Everything was perfect, and the more she talked to him, the more she knew, just knew he was the man of her dreams.
The startling discovery that a spy has been sent to Cloud Lake changes all that. For Noah, it means that he’s immediately under suspicion as the possible spy, ostracized by his peers and distanced from his mate. Angela, knowing full well what the spy was sent to find out, must determine if Noah is telling the truth, or if he’s full of lies. The unease between them grows, and when Noah stumbles upon the secret the spy is desperately trying to uncover, he faces a decision that will test him to the core of his foundation. Does he follow the law, and all that he’s been taught? Or will he follow his gut? If he does, he’ll have Angela and the trust of his peers. But it will cost him his home. Forever.
