Bears Behaving Badly
We're not dating, we've never been dating, we're not going to hook up, no way, absolutely not…oh. Oops.
My primary focus has always been taking care of were-babies in the interspecies foster care system. I am unapologetically a fierce mama bear shifter and I am completely united with my team behind protecting at-risk were-children. So I have no idea why the appealing scruffy bear shifter PI David Auberon keeps hanging around, asking for sweets, and being charming and flirty. I've certainly got no time for shy solitary bears who can't ask for what they want.
But what am I to do when a hideous bad guy shows up and I need to rescue a were-baby, except call on the skills of the handsome and growly PI? And if dodging enemies puts us in a tight spot…well, I'm not against tight spots.
Praise for MaryJanice Davidson:
"Slow-burn sexual tension and playful paranormal elements make this hilarious, sizzling romance perfect for fans of Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series."—Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW
"Davidson is in peak form in this hilarious, sexy, and heartfelt paranormal romance" —Booklist STARRED REVIEW
Characters banter a mile a minute in the excellent, screwball paranormal rom-com that kicks off Davidson's Bewere My Heart series (after Deja New). Bear-shifters Annette Garsea, an indomitable interspecies foster system caseworker, and David Auberon, a stalwart private investigator, team up to stop a criminal who is targeting juvenile shifters. Though Annette believes she's too busy for love and the charmingly bashful David thinks he has no chance with her, the romantic tension only grows as they work together, soon giving way to sexy make-out sessions. Annette's intense protective instinct toward her young charges is backed up by smarts and shifter strength, making her an admirable heroine. David is her match in intelligence and muscle, but it is his blundering attempts at flirtation that make him so endearing. A host of secondary characters, including Annette's wacky roommate, Pat, and mysterious colleague, Nadia, serve as entertaining diversions from the procedural mystery at the center of the story. Slow-burn sexual tension and playful paranormal elements make this hilarious, sizzling romance perfect for fans of Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series.
Cute story about a polar grizzly social worker and a freelance agent
She is a polar grizzly cross who keeps her house cold. We are introduced to Dev Devoss early on, who has many talents and is constantly in trouble. Caro Daniels is more of an enigma and won't speak to the authorities because she is deeply traumatized. There are a lot of people pushing Annette into dating David Auberon, another shifter. We meet Annette's foster mother, Mama Macropi, and her foster brother Oz. We get more of the story about Opal, his twin who died of malnutrition.
