DAILY DEALS: Bears and More

cover imageBear’s Gold by Yvette Hines $ 0.99

From the Jacket Copy:
Riley Gold is on the run. Her ex-boyfriend has been stalking her for the last year and she can’t get out of Dodge, Oregon fast enough. However, she should have planned her escape better, and maybe she wouldn’t have ended up caught in a rainstorm, in the dead of night with a flat tire. Trapped in the woods and miles away from the next town, Riley sets off on foot to a large cabin home for help and refuge for the night. Is it just her imagination or is someone–or something following her?

With the First Moon Festival on its way and pheromones saturating the air, Theo Kodiak is a sniff away from going feral. As the father of two boys, it doesn’t leave him a lot of time to find a companion to help raise them. Low and behold, fate shines down on him and presents a sensuous woman at his door. Riley is cold, scared and in danger, but she just maybe exactly what he needs in his life. The erotic attraction between them can’t be evaded and soon they are swept under a tidal wave of euphoria.

When a threat from both their past jeopardizes everything that is important, Riley and Theo find themselves united and a force to be reckoned with.

cover imageBear Prince by Emma Alisyn $ 0.99

From the Jacket Copy:
Bear shifter Prince Andrei defends street ballerina Hannah from the noxious advances of an odious human toad. He soon realizes this unassuming young woman is his fated mate and is determined to win her heart and wed her- even if his rebellion will cost him his crown.

Hannah has only ever wanted to dance. Raised in a conservative Christian community, she fights to balance her small town values with the more worldly ways of the big city. When the magnetic stranger calling himself Andrew defends her from an assault, she can’t help but sense something dark and feral under his quiet, stern exterior.

When she discovers his secret identity, will the strength of their relationship hold up under the strain of a new, foreign life in the spotlight? And with a surprise pregnancy, does she even have a choice but to make their relationship work?

This 37K paranormal romance is for readers who enjoy billionaire alpha males, interracial (bwwm) couples and happily ever afters. Standalone, first in the Royal Bears series.

From the Jacket Copy:
Overview
Bear Tenacity (Pleasant Valley Shifters) by Marlie Monroe
Never get between a bear and his honey.

A new beginning…

Zoe Redman has a bright future ahead of her as the new kindergarten teacher at Pleasant Valley Elementary school. After a rough start in life, things are finally looking up for her. They only get better when a sexy shifter takes an interest in her.

A chance encounter…

The moment Toby Gideon meets Zoe, he knows he’s found his mate. The curvy blonde is smart, gorgeous, and as sweet as honey. All it takes is one taste of her lips to cement his determination to claim the plus-sized beauty for his own.

An unbreakable bond…

Life is sweet until a deadly foe makes his presence known in grisly fashion. Toby vows to protect Zoe no matter the cost, but even the most diligent bear can’t foresee everything. When Zoe’s abducted, Toby will stop at nothing to rescue his mate—even if it means risking his own life to save hers.

cover imageWounds to Bear by Lily Marie $ 0.99

From the Jacket Copy:
Overview
Wounds to Bear (Heart of The Bear, #1) by Lily Marie
An old enemy…

Roman Black’s past has finally caught up with him – and he isn’t the only one paying for his mistakes.

A beautiful, curvy woman…

Dr. Jenna Morgan is running from her own past – and hopes to find her place in the small town of Pine Heart.

When a wounded bear shows up at her door, she discovers that the rumors about this small town are true, and that one of those shifters is bleeding all over her front porch. She treats him, and learns that he was shot protecting a group of shifter and human kids who are now being held by an old enemy bent on revenge.

Two hearts, one goal.

Roman’s family joins together to find them – but it will be Roman who has to end this, redeem himself to his family, and to the woman who has stolen the heart of the bear.

This is a standalone story, with an HEA.
