Publisher Description

In this sizzling Shifter Town novel by bestselling author Novalee Swan, a shy alpha falls for a wounded dove.

She's afraid of him. But she wants him.

Lily Amaretto hasn't known much kindness in her life—and never from a man.

When she's forced to accept a job working for the scariest male she's ever seen, it's about survival and redemption. She doesn't want to spend her life afraid of shadows, but did she have to start with the most lethal man in existence? 

Grizzly shifter Connor Reid is complex.

He's taller and stronger than anyone else and has never lost a fight. He's also sweet as a summer breeze and shy as a prairie dog. He never planned to stay in Shifter Town. But something happened that rocked his world. Now he's determined to protect the only woman he can't have from the men hunting her.

What do two shy souls do when they want each other badly, but don't know how to make it happen? Shifter Town is about to find out...

Bear Essentials is the fourth book in Novalee Swan's captivating Shifter Town series. It features her trademark heat and emotional intensity and is perfect for readers who love sexy shifter romance and small-town charm.
