Bear Shifters are Coming Soon!

While I adore writing the Heart Falls contemporary western series—and I have more of them coming!—I wanted the WOW fun of writing a paranormal series once again.

So I did! I’m very, very excited to tell you about them.

The trilogy is Borealis Bears. I think I mentioned this idea in passing once before, and at that time we were tossing around a different series title that involved shifters and matches, but this is simpler to remember!

Book 1 will be out in August, book 2 in November, and book 3 in February. And to make it even simpler, the entire series is ready for preorder, beginning with The Bear’s Chosen Mate, August 20!

Excited? Here’s what’s in store. I hope you enjoy these sexy shifters as they deal with their interfering grandpa, and fate, best they can!

Welcome to the BOREALIS BEARS trilogy

Get mated—or else! 

When their meddling, match-making family patriarch lays down the law, Giles Borealis’ three polar bear shifter grandsons agree to follow his edict. Only James, Alex and Cooper each have a vastly different plan in mind to deal with their impending mating fevers.

Will any of them be able to fight fate?

Spoiler: not likely!

My dearest grandsons,

Before the year is done, I’ll celebrate my eighty-fifth birthday. I know you’re all eager to find me the perfect present. I have to say up until now, you’re the best presents I could ever have gotten. You’ve grown up smart and strong, with real business savvy and enough cutthroat ambition to make me proud. Borealis Gems is thriving because of you.

You’re also the most pigheaded and obstinate jackasses I’ve ever had to deal with.

Telling me you want to focus on business and that finding a mate can wait sounds impressive, but we all know that’s a load of crock. It’s damn-well time you got your butts in gear. I want to hold my great-grandbabies before I die, a sentiment your grandmother fully endorses, as do your parents—even though they’re out of the country at the moment.

Stubborn fools that you are, for years on end you’ve resisted the mating fever when it’s hit. Enough of that nonsense.

There are nine months until my birthday. That’s how long you have to pick a mate, boys, or come New Year’s Eve, I’ll arrange to sell my shares of Borealis Gems to Midnight Inc., and none of us want that, do we, now?

When mating fever hits this time around, you decide. You can make an old man happy, (and your grandmother—don’t forget Nana!) take full ownership of a multibillion-dollar corporation, and have the time of your life with a forever mate…or you can throw it all away. Your choice.

Don’t make it a stupid one.



Your long-suffering grandfather,


Giles Borealis, Sr.

A Rancher's Heart by Vivian Arend

This cowboy has given up on love, but the new nanny might just make him change his mind. The first in a brand-new series from New York Times bestselling author Vivian Arend.

Caleb Stone is wearing too many hats and it’s making him crankier than usual. He’s a cowboy, a father, and the head of his large family—and has been since tragedy claimed his parents over ten years ago. The ranch is struggling, but it’s the title of single dad that’s got him tangled up in knots. He needs a full-time, live-in nanny at the Silver Stone homestead in Heart Falls, Alberta, to help with his two little girls, but the woman about to arrive on his doorstep? Tantalizing, tempting, and trouble with capital T’s.

Tamara Coleman doesn’t regret the choices that led to losing her job, but she definitely needs a fresh start. When a friend recommends her for a nanny position in a new town, she swears this time it’ll be different. No more acting on impulse—except sexy, gruff Caleb is exactly the kind of man who pushes all her buttons. And what’s more, it’s so much fun to push his in return. Sparks fly between Tamara and her gorgeous boss, but she can’t risk her position, and he doesn’t dare risk his heart.

With two people fighting their true natures, something’s going to give. Luckily, there’s more than one way to capture a rancher’s heart.


Caleb shook his head. “She’s my sister. I trust her. She says you’re the one for the job, and I believe her, God help me.”

Amusement lightened Tamara’s expression as a snicker escaped. “Thanks for the vote of confidence. You really think you need heavenly intervention with me working for you?”

He needed it to stop dreaming about decidedly non-heavenly pursuits. Like her lips, soft and delicious. And those damn glasses she wore—he’d never realized he had a thing for glasses, but obviously, he did. The ones she had on today were black-rimmed with tipped-up outside edges. The way she peered at him through them made the dirty thoughts rise, along with his cock.

Which wasn’t completely surprising because it had been a hell of a long time since the thing had gotten attention from anything other than his hand…

…and this was a direction he needed to avoid heading in the future.

A Rancher's Song by Vivian Arend

Can love help a champion bull rider face his fears and find his future?

Ivy Field‘s heart nearly broke when she left Heart Falls, but her high school sweetheart insisted she follow-through on her dream of becoming a teacher. She thought that meant putting their relationship on hold briefly, but it’s taken eleven years to return. Now she’s back, no longer a painfully shy young girl but a confident woman who knows exactly what and who she wants–a home and a family–with too-sexy-for-his-boots Walker Stone. He was her first; she wants him to be her last.

Walker “Dynamite” Stone was still reeling from his parents’ unexpected deaths when Ivy left. He let her go, throwing himself into work on the Silver Stone ranch and dangerous living on the rodeo circuit. But lately Walker’s adrenaline junkie ways have crashed–he’s having panic attacks. Potentially devastating to his budding music career, they’re a deadly handicap when shooting for eight seconds aboard an angry bull. He needs to learn to face his fears to save the family fortunes. If he succeeds, this time Walker will be the one to leave Heart Falls, and Ivy, behind.

Will Ivy and Walker have to give up on forever, or can they turn this rancher’s song into a winning duet?


Another round of cheers went up, and then the shouting changed to words.

Kiss her. Kiss her. Kiss her

The locals knew their history—knew they’d been sweethearts back in the day. It made sense they’d be riled up and willing to tease. The crowd was helping to pull Ivy forward, and hands were at Walker’s back guiding him as well.

As if he needed any encouragement.

They met in the middle of the room, and the noise level hit a deafening volume as the chant continued.

Kiss her. Kiss her.

Walker held out a hand, and she placed her fingers in his with no hesitation. It wasn’t the crowd’s encouragement that made him do it. It was the need in his gut telling him to go ahead and take a bite.

He pulled her against him, sliding a hand behind her back as he brought their bodies into contact, twisting and dipping her, bending forward until she had to arch back and rely on him to hold her safely.

She didn’t fight him, not one bit. She just moved in unison with him as if it’d been yesterday and not years ago they’d been in each other’s arms. And when he leaned over and pressed his lips to hers, it was like coming home.

For the longest time I’ve wanted to write some holiday stories, but the way my series fell into place simply didn’t allow it. Now that I’ve begun to write trilogies and quartets set in Heart Falls, a new opportunity has opened up, and I’m finally able to follow through on this dream.

Here’s the wonderful part of it—the stories I write tend to have overarching themes. Like The Stones of Heart Falls, where the Stone brothers are working to save the ranch their parents left them (and coincidentally finding true love, because I am always about the true love!)

But there are many wonderful people who live in Heart Falls area that come into the family’s life on a daily basis, and they’re not all going to end up with a Stone brother.

They still deserve a happily-ever-after!

People like Bradley Ford, who’s a friend of both Walker Stone and Ivy Fields from their high school days. He’s returned to Heart Falls to be the Fire Chief, and looking to settle down. People like Hanna Lane, one of Tamara’s new friends and the single mom of Emma’s best friend, Crissy.

And if you don’t know ANY of those names because you’ve never read any of the Heart Falls stories, you know what? You’ll still be fine. Because THAT is the true joy of these special holiday books. They’re completely stand alone, and can be picked up and enjoyed by anyone who loves a happily-ever-after.

There’s mistletoe, a hero in pursuit, a heroine with hope in her heart, and a little girl who is convinced Santa is personally looking out for her…

*quivers with excitement*

Yup, I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time. I think A Firefighter’s Christmas Giftis one of the best books I’ve ever written.

I can’t wait for you to enjoy this story!
