Consumed: Werebear Claims His Mate, a paranormal shifters novella

Lida awakened the bear in me out of a long hibernation.

I came back into myself as a silverback and I had to have her.

What I did to her in my exam room could cost me my practice. But it was her pain from a brutal warlord that made me face the most difficult choice of my life.

To claim my destined mate I’d have to face her secrets —  and my own.

Read Bear Consumed for the full story of Ian and Lida’s outlawed shifter love.

Note from the author:

Bear Consumed became more personal than I expected. I started out to write a growly and possessive werebear fantasy. The hero’s a doctor because doctors attract me. There’s a sense of power, confidence, skill, kindness, good touch — and the erotic flare of the forbidden. What if the doctor crosses the line? What if he wants me that much? The risks on both sides, practically and emotionally, are intense.

Ian’s dark passion took over the book. He loses control, and so did I. To follow where his nature led, I wrote things that may disturb some people. They disturb me. But if I censored those things, it wouldn’t be an honest book. I grew up with a lot of secrets. It was freeing to go right to the roots of experiences that formed me and to transform them in this way.

Creation comes from a state of wonder where I’m safe. My whole being lives in the story, everything else falls away. Reading saved me when I had no other refuge. Here’s my heart.
