But my mate died in childbirth years ago, and as a military trained doctor, I still beat myself up for not being able to save her. I never thought I'd love again. But the way my bear yearns for her now has me thinking otherwise. No matter what my bear wants, I won't give up until I get to the bottom of the mystery behind Nikki's three devious mates. I can't let my heart get involved. Or can I? Book 2: Fake Mate For The Soldier Lion God, I've been craving a mate for far too long. But between my tactical missions with the Special Ops Shifter Force and working my ass off, I've had no choice but to ignore the roar of my inner lion. Until the day a sassy, iron-willed lioness showed up at the Force's secret headquarters unannounced. Desire surged through my veins the moment our feline eyes met, lighting every cell in my body ablaze.

But when tensions rise between that hot little wolf and I in the middle of the woods, will we be able to ignore the demands of our inner beasts? Book 4: Christmas With The Soldier Dragon I'm the only shifter of my kind, never knowing the sense of family that comes with being part of a clan. The rest of my comrades are celebrating the holidays with their mates, and that only magnifies the issue. So when I was presented with a mission to investigate a mysterious case of shifter disappearances around Lake Tahoe, I jumped at the chance to get away from it all. But when I arrived, I came face to face with another dragon in the lake. Everything I've known to be true was suddenly turned on its head, awakening the fire that had long been dormant in my heart. Finding her was the greatest Christmas gift I could've ever imagined. But with threats around every corner, will my dreams of finally having a mate be torn apart? Steamy shifter scenes inside!

There were three brutal murders at Acadia, so as the Law Enforcement Ranger of the park, I should be on the case. Because a crazed bear shifter is at fault, the possible exposure of our clan-and shifters everywhere-is on the line if this news goes public, but thanks to government politics, the head of the park was forced to call in an FBI agent to investigate the deaths. Bianca Gianni is her name, and this fiesty little thing is all business-more importantly, all human. If she could get off her high horse and stop barking orders for a moment, maybe I could grow to like her, even if she is stepping on my toes. Hell, with curves like hers, we could have a lot of fun. Getting on her good side isn't going to be easy, but that's exactly what I need to do to make sure our kind isn't thrown into the limelight. Will I be able to keep her from the truth, or will this firecracker figure it out on her own, leaving on the next helicopter to expose us to the feds? With a little luck, maybe I can have my cake and eat it, too. ***This is the second installment of the Shifter Nation: Werebears Of Acadia series.
