Good things come in extra-large, smoking hot packages.
Things like pizza.
The very pizzas that I deliver for my dad’s restaurant, Peretti’s Pizza. It’s a temporary job, something to pay the bills until I graduate from school, but it does the trick. In fact, it's working quite well until Ryan Pierce of the Minnesota Stars decides to order a pizza from me, and life as I know it turns upside down.
You see, Ryan Pierce doesn’t just open his front door. He opens it buck naked. And suddenly, I’m not the one boasting the biggest, hottest package in the room. However, it’s what happens next that gives me butterflies whenever my phone beeps. Ryan starts to call, and then text, and then fifteen pizza deliveries and one fantastic night later, we’re friends with benefits.
So when he asks me to be his fake girlfriend at his brother’s wedding, I’m happy to help. But the longer we pretend, the more I worry that this is one package I might not be able to handle.

HONEYCOMB VALLEY has been a sanctuary for bear shifters for centuries, though they hid their secret well. It isn’t until they’re secret is discovered through a daring act of kindness by one of the bear shifters to save a young girl’s life (Book 3: Too Hot to Bear) that the existence of bear shifters is revealed to the entire world. Then, everything changes. Old rules are tested—and broken. Rules designed to keep shifters with their own kind—even when it means turning their back on their fated mate—no longer matter, especially not after their clan leader, Alex Savage, finds his fated mate in the dangerous curves of a human, Livia Palmer (Book 1: Too Hard to Bear). But, old believes are hard to overcome, and the growing fears of humans are threatening to destroy all that has been loved and protected by the Honeycomb Valley bears.
Come on this journey and learn what it is to be loved by a fated mate. Learn what it is to be loved by a Honeycomb Valley bear.
BOOK 1: TOO HARD TO BEAR — Honeycomb Valley’s clan leader, billionaire Alex Savage, is faced with breaking his own rules when he meets his fated mate—a human. Self-made millionaire, Livia Palmer's voluptuous curves are undeniable to his bear, and the beast threatens to take control of Alex’s senses in order to get what he wants. His fated mate.
BOOK 2: TOO SEXY TO BEAR — After burning down her previous employer’s restaurant and told she’d never cook again, Thea goes home to take over her best friend’s family restaurant in Honeycomb Valley. There, life changes more than she ever expected when she’s reunited with the man who told her he loved her—and then broke her heart by pretending she didn’t exist. But, maybe Honeycomb Valley will provide her with more than just a second chance at rekindling her career as a chef. Maybe her heart’s greatest love, Ewan, will get his second chance, too.
BOOK 3: TOO HOT TO BEAR — Sweet, beautiful Nora needs a second chance at life. Her life ceased to exist the day her parents were savagely killed…and the world learned that werebears exist. Now, even though the world’s moving on, she’s stuck in that day. Her memories keep her there, haunting her, and the man who turned his back on her and her family haunts her, too. Nora will never be free to move forward until she goes back to Honeycomb Valley. She will never be free until she’s able to face Miles—the man who destroyed her life but saved her too.
BOOK 4: TOO PROUD TO BEAR — Tall, smooth talking, ex-marine James Cooper doesn’t need a second chance. To hell with second chances. He gave up on love when the one girl who mattered most to him ran off without even saying goodbye. Years of searching finally ended when he saw a picture of her with her new baby — some other man’s baby. But, when the curvaceous, beautiful, now-doctor, Natalie Addington, moves back to Honeycomb Valley, all bets are off. James wants her back, and he wants to be a part of her son’s life, too. But, there are secrets layered on top of secrets, and the life of an innocent is at stake… the life of a boy he never knew was his own.
BOOK 5: TOO SHY TO BEAR — Clumsy yet charming, strongman Gus MacDonald is a big guy—even among werebears. The love of his life—beautiful, charming and very human, Felicia Cole—is only 5’2, and Gus feels like an awkward oaf every time he gets near her. Making things worse, Gus has always had to keep his distance from her no matter how much he's loved her, but the rules have changed. At last, Gus can make Felicia his—but he has to do it soon because the beautiful Felicia is leaving Honeycomb Valley forever. Gus has got one last chance to get things right, and the kissing booth at Honeycomb Valley’s County Fair is the perfect place to finally step up and claim what’s his.
