A Taste of Spice

Mystery of Keyser Ridge 2

Doctor Andrew Prentiss has watched his older and younger brother and his best friend find their mates. So, when is it this black bear shifter’s turn? Of all of the Prentiss children, he’s the one who believed most strongly in Fate doing the choosing of one’s mate. But at age thirty-eight and no mate in sight, he’s beginning to think maybe Fate forgot about him. Then he gets a call from a new Park Ranger needing an injured child checked out and nothing is the same again.

Park Ranger Kendall Humphrey has disavowed taking a mate for life, no matter what. After seeing what mating lust and bonding did to her parents back home in Wyoming, she now lives by a hard and fast rule of only casual sex. Being committed and attached to one male can lead to madness and/or death, and she loves being alive too much to risk either. But the big, growly Doc does something to her no one ever has and she’s finding it harder to resist his obvious intent.Heck, her cinnamon bear wants nothing more than hibernate all winter in his arms, never mind bear him lots and lots of cubs, though Kendall is not at all sure she’s cut-out to be the motherly type.

Magic at Midnight

Mystery of Keyser Ridge 3

How Tomas Gaida wound up in the Keyser Ridge area is more a mystery to him than anyone else. One minute he’s happily scouring Europe for saleable, not to mention valuable, antiques and in the next, he’s packed and saying goodbye to friends and the only home he’s known. The lengths to which one will go to help a good friend surely does not include packing up and moving across an ocean? Yet, that is exactly what he found himself doing after Steponas Popieziaus asked him to do. Apparently, his best friend’s little sister went and got herself mated and married and Steponas was not happy about it, though work and family matters prevented him from leaving the old country to check on things. Into the breach steps his best friend Tomas, a man whose family is spread all over the world and whose work can be done anywhere, according to his friend’s viewpoint.

The idea of finding out what is so exciting about living and working in the US, Tomas turns the move into an adventure. It turned into one of the most sinfully sweet kind when he unexpectedly finds himself in need of a computer geek to work out the bugs in his work and home computer system. When in walks Platinum blond, blue-eyed Ursula Prentiss, the deliciously curvy, bossy computer tech rocks his world like no other. Can this old-world bat tame a modern day growly Eastern white bear enough so they can create magic every night?
