Monsters are everywhere, hiding in plain sight, but the scariest monsters aren’t the mythical beasts of folklore or people with abilities beyond comprehension. The worst kinds of monsters are the people who try to capture, destroy, or exploit anyone who doesn’t fit their idea of normal. In Bear’s Edge, bear shifter Grant is faced with the reality that there are people who will stop at nothing to uncover the ever elusive truth about the existence of Mother Nature’s stranger creatures, even if the path to truth leaves behind death and destruction. Grant and Shayla must learn to embrace their true natures and work together to defeat the monsters intent on destroying anything strange and extraordinary.

A Tasty Bit of Bear’s Edge
Ah, but I can’t. I’m his boss. In a different lifetime, if we didn’t have the whole boss-employee obstacle going on….Grant the mystery man—a delicious mystery Shayla would like to unravel, piece by piece, layer by layer.No harm in looking, though, just a little, since he sat so close. She promised herself to keep her thoughts G-rated—okay, maybe PG-13.Grant had a talent with numbers and paid attention to detail. Also, he was a little shy and standoffish to a lot of people when it came to anything other than work. Shayla wondered where he sometimes went in his head, because, every now and then, his smile slipped from his face, just for a second, before being replaced with one a little harder. None of my business, she reminded herself.She had really wanted to hug him this morning after seeing him so frustrated but decided it might be wiser and more appropriate to show him there were a few people on his side. Seeing him break things and try to be all strong and humorous about it made Shayla want to unravel the Grant mystery even more. It kind of hurt to watch him pretending to be fine, but all she could offer him was lunch and good conversation.Hopefully, Mr. Strong and Silent—Sydney called him that sometimes, although never to his face—knew Shayla and Sydney cared. And Shayla did care.Because he’s a friend. Just a friend.
A few years ago, I read my first romance novel and I was hooked, so much so that I
decided to give the idea of writing a story a chance. Love, courage, hope, and second chances are a few of my favorite themes. My stories include a fair amount of sarcasm, suspense, steam, and violence. When I’m not writing, I enjoy spending time outside and finding ways to avoid cooking. I live in beautiful Virginia with my husband, two daughters, and a sweet, hairy monster of a dog.
