BEARLY MY VALENTINE
FOXHOLLOW DEN - BOOK #4
The lines of friendship and loyalty are blurred when two shifters are snowed in on Valentine's Day.
Payne Stepanov needs to prove that not everyone in her family sucks, and Valentine's Day is the perfect opportunity. An outcast since her brother created havoc with the townsfolk of Foxhollow, Alaska, she is determined to regain integrity in her family's name.
Not easy to achieve when her brother is on the run from the mysterious Council, and a pack of werewolves are blackmailing her, and the man she wants more than anything sees her as nothing more than a friend. But when love is in the air, anything is possible.
Kel Hargrove is in Foxhollow for one reason--find Gregor Stepanov for the Council so he can exchange the escaped werebear for his own misguided brother. Kel knows all too well that family comes first for shifters, and he has no doubt Gregor will eventually seek the help of his sister, Payne.
So what if Payne is innocent, or that she's the closest friend Kel's had in years, or that at night he dreams of pleasing her like no other man could. Kel's loyalty must remain with his brother and the Council. But when his growing attraction for Payne interferes with his mission, can he find a solution where he secures his brother's release and wins the heart of his Valentine?
