The Playboy Bear’s Baby

One playboy werebear, a human woman, and a surprise pregnancy… what could possibly go wrong?

Mara knew hooking up with a player like Grayson Wells was a mistake. He epitomized everything she hated about the opposite sex—from the testosterone raging through his veins to his reputation as a rich playboy. However, those qualities also made him the perfect person to distract her after the loss of her grandmother and a disastrous break up with her fiancé. Their time together was supposed to be a one time thing, until fate stepped in and thrust them back together.

After losing his family in a vicious attack by hunters when he was a teenager, grizzly shifter Grayson Wells had learned to live his life to the fullest. He doesn’t think beyond his immediate wants and needs. Hooking up with Mara was spontaneous, hotter than fire, and the end of his footloose and fancy free lifestyle. From the moment they touched, he knew Mara was the one for him—the mate he never expected to find. Convincing her to give him a shot is easier said than done, but he’s willing to fight for what he wants when it matters. Discovering Mara’s pregnant only makes him even more determined to claim her as his mate.

As the heat between them builds, a new threat arrives and endangers Mara and their unborn child. If Gray doesn’t act fast, his new family could be snatched away from him before he ever gets the chance to claim them.

The Playboy Bear’s Baby is a standalone romance with a happy ending. There is NO cliffhanger.
