Shiftr: Swipe Left for Love (Ryzard) is out!

Shiftr: Swipe Left for Love (Ryzard), the long-awaited, standalone release of the latest instalment in the best-selling series, is here! It’s at a promotional price of 99c for a limited time and available on KU.

Ryzard Adler has always been the hothead of the Hope Valley bears, and a dark past makes him believe that he's not mate material. But when his clan forces him to find a mate through Shiftr and a 95% match comes up, an even darker secret comes out in the shape of Marilyn Faustino, which threatens his whole future in the clan.

When Marilyn had a one-night stand with a sexy, husky-voiced stranger two years earlier, she not only got scared half to death when he accidentally shifted, but became the mother of two identical cubs. She never expected to see their father again, and when Ryzard comes back into her life, seemingly as irresponsible as ever, the feisty beauty is less than impressed.

Please note: This book is inspired by the short story which was featured in the Shifters In The Spring boxed set in early 2016 - but this story is a new, much lengthened version of it, only loosely based on the boxed set story. It is 34,000 words - twice the length of the short story. 

Bear Cuffs (Broken Hill Bears Book 3) is here!

Bear Cuffs, the third book in my best-selling Broken Hill Bears series, is out! It’s at a promotional price of 99c for a limited time and available on KU.

Sexy tearaway Rocco Silvester has been pushed to the brink by troubles within his clan. He can’t fight. He can hardly deal with being around the other bears. Then his Alpha forces him to take a mate to save the Broken Hill Bears from ruin. Smart, strong, big-hearted Harper Waverly is everything that a bear could wish for. The only problem? She hates his guts.  

If Harper Waverly could change two things about herself, it would be to not have had a father at all, and to have never laid eyes on Rocco Silvester. But when her kind-hearted stepfather asks her to become the mate of the man who once broke her heart, refusing isn’t an option.  

Forced to live together in Broken Hill, Harper just wants to be left alone, but Rocco's feelings for the brunette beauty are stronger than ever. If he wants to be in with a shot of winning her heart again though, it’s time for this fighter to get back into the ring. 

This is a standalone, full-length, 36,000 word book, packed with heart-stopping romance, passion, and suspense! HEA and no cliffhanger! 

Bare Knuckle Bear (Broken Hill Bears Book 2) is out!

The second book in my Broken Hill Bears series - Bare Knuckle Bear - is out! It's available for $0.99 for a limited time, and it's also in KU.

To Braxton Quentin, the world would be a better place if humans didn’t exist. They destroyed his family, leaving him with terrible emotional scars that have made him unable to contemplate finding a mate. And then he meets smart, sexy, auburn-haired Neve. His bear wants her, his clan needs her, but accepting her help means betraying his most deeply held convictions. 

Orphaned Neve Vincent has never had anyone looking out for her in life. Watching her hero, the smoldering, blue-eyed Braxton, wrestle live on stage is her escape from harsh reality. Too bad she has to find out the hard way that he hates everything she stands for. 

With the Broken Hill Bears facing ruin and time fast running out, Neve is the only one who can help Braxton save the clan. Can he make amends for the hurt he’s caused her – even if this means taking the risk that this good-hearted human will take hold of his heart and never let it go? 

This is a standalone, full-length, 44,000 word novel, packed with heart-stopping romance, passion, and suspense! HEA and no cliffhanger! 

For a limited period, there is also an additional story as a special FREE bonus! 

Out now: Bear In The Rough (Broken Hill Bears Book 1)

I’m so thrilled to introduce to you Bear In The Rough, the first book in my new series, Broken Hill Bears.

Welcome to a world where the sexy bunch of rough and tumble bear shifters wrestle in front of hundreds of screaming human fans. I can't wait to share with you the lives, loves, bloodshed and romances of these hard-assed, yet lovable bears. 

Xander Silvester’s life has turned from military order into absolute chaos overnight. He’s the new Alpha of the Broken Hill Bears, an infamous wrestling clan, but his father’s unconventional choice has left him with a rebelling older brother, a disobedient clan and the threat of enemy attack. And then a moment of stupidity from certain clan members lands three human females right in the middle of Broken Hill. He needs to decide how to deal with them, but just one look at the sexy, feisty one, and he can’t get her out of his mind. As clan politics spiral out of control and his leadership is on the line, he’s faced with a terrible dilemma: lose the respect of his clan, or break the dreams of the woman who’s captured his heart. 

Freya Wright is finally on the path to finding herself. She’s hiking the whole length of the USA with two close friends, returning to Washington for the first time since her father abandoned her there as a child. But when they’re kidnapped by three bear shifters, her dream is shattered and her growing inner peace replaced by a furious rage at the clan leader who has told them they can never leave Broken Hill. She’s determined to fight his decision every step of the way, but hatred and anger are not the only feelings she has toward him. The longer she’s held captive, the more she sees in the charismatic and powerful Xander. And now she has a big decision to make: stand by her principles and fight for her freedom, or yield to the demands of her body and love the only man who’s ever reached her heart.

This is full-length, standalone novel of 55,000 words (around 275 standard pages).

I’m very excited to announce that I’ve got a brand new series, coming out in May 2016!

Allow me to introduce my new clan – The Broken Hill Bears. They’re a rough, tough family of professional wrestlers, and when they’re in the ring, these bears aren’t acting. Pitted against their arch enemy, The Black Paw Ridge clan, they fight for total domination, in front of thousands of screaming fans.

But when they’re back home, these public fights are only the beginning. 

Get ready to follow the lives, loves, bloodshed and romances of these hard-assed, yet loveable bears!

It's a story of three best friends, all grown up; a forbidden love; and an impossible choice. And guess what - it's another full-length novel! 

Curvy geek girl Jessica Schmidt works as a developer for the dating app Shiftr. When her two best friends, who disappeared in mysterious circumstances ten years earlier, come to the office looking for mates, she couldn't be more shocked. Will their friendship be the same when she finds out what happened to them, and what’s she supposed to do with the creeping attraction she feels for the sexy, strong, protective men they've become?  
  
As the son of an alpha, Christian Taylor carries a lot of responsibility on his shoulders. Not least the pressure to be a perfect son to parents who’ve already lost one child. He’s overjoyed to have his best friend back in his life, and he’s doing his best to ignore the fact that she’s turned into a stunning beauty. But suddenly, his father’s life is in danger, and he’s got to take care of his clan. Christian has a very important question to ask Jessica, but one that will leave her with a terrible choice to make.  
  
Lucas McCoy has been secretly in love with Jessica for as long as he can remember. When they meet after ten years, his attraction is stronger than ever, but he quickly realizes that he’s a full-grown bear and can’t go on acting like a love-sick puppy any more. He tries hard to put his feelings aside and date other women, but when he figures out that things between Jessica and Christian might be more than platonic, his bear won’t let her go without a fight.
