Grayslake: More than Mated
Secrets to Bear
by Flora Dare
He’s her hot one-night stand. She’s his fated mate. And there’s one person determined to keep them apart.
Lira just needs room to breathe. Somewhere away from her small town, their prying eyes, and their intense focus now that her cheating ex… is really her ex. For good. What better place to get away than a dive bar two towns over? And if she happens to meet her next one-night stand in all of his muscular, lickable glory… all the better.
Werebear Jake just wanted a drink. What he got was an armful of luscious mate. For one night. Then life–and his persnickety grandmother–interfere. He has to get his family to Grayslake, Georgia (the werebear town) and then he’ll focus on finding his missing mate. Unless she finds him first.
Jake has Lira, but can he keep her? Lira’s ex refuses to let her go and Jake’s bear… refuses to let him live.
Tall, dark and handsome, she’s watched him from afar for years…
Back in Lizard Lick after a broken engagement, Kaitlyn Turner has two things on her mind: regaining her independence and having a good night out with her bestie. Only somehow, their celebrations include hitting up the local tattoo parlour. The Tattoo parlour run by Creed, her late brothers best friend. Hot as Hades, he’s the one man she knows she can’t have, but the one she’d kill to have look at her as more than a kid sister.
Petite, curvy, beautiful…and human. She’s everything he wants, and everything he can’t have.
Werebear Creed is a loner in the Lizard Lick pack. Tall, powerfully built, and mean as hell, he holds rank as an enforcer despite the fact his bear prefers to stay well hidden. No matter, he can enforce pack rules in human form… even against fully shifted bears. They might call him a half-skin but no one wants to piss him off. Ever.
He doesn’t care what they think. Until Kaitlyn Turner walks back into town. He’s wanted her for years, but she’s human and he’s a bear. No can do. But then an attack brings her over into his world and the path is clear.
She’s always been his…now he’ll claim her. Even if he has to fight the whole pack to do so…
Lion To Get Her
by Lynn Red
Who the hell has time for love? Lion-shifting Laney Langston, Redby Township’s assistant librarian, sure doesn’t. Between juggling book clubs, story time for the town’s cubs, and her increasingly neurotic best friend, she’s got just about all she can handle.
The last thing she needs is more drama in her life, but when a half-naked lion is found asleep in the library she feels stirring in places she’d really rather not stir in a public library.
Rip Black is one big, bad lion who is sick of the spotlight. Once he was a firebrand who fought endlessly for shifter rights, but lately this muscled-up alpha is just looking for somewhere to hide. As luck—or fate—would have it, he chose the “S” section of the Redby Public Library to take a nap.
When he wakes up with one supremely irritated Laney hovering above him, Rip realizes in the blink of an eye that everything he’s ever wanted is right here in Redby… and he ain’t gonna stop until he gets EXACTLY what he wants.
***This sexy, steamy, hilarious lion-shifter romance is the crossover between Jamesburg and Grayslake that you’ve always wanted…and now it’s gonna make you ROAR!***

Georgette St. Clair
Nurse’s aide Heather Appleby thought she’d seen it all on her late-night shift at Grayslake Memorial Hospital. Nailgun accidents. Sex romps gone wrong. People inserting things in unspeakable places. Then one night, a battered, unconscious girl is carried into the E.R. – and turns into a wolf right in front of Heather. Next thing she knows, Knox Carlson, the sexy, growly beast of a deputy who’s always ignored her, is sniffing around – and staking his claim on the curvy human.
Knox Carlson is an Alpha werewolf, and the first time he scented Heather, he knew she was his with a capital H,I,S. But she’s human, so their mating can never be – until he’s called in to investigate the disappearance of a wolf shifter female who’s run out on her arranged marriage. Now that Heather has learned the secret of shifters, he’ll have to claim her as his own or let her be put down – and he’ll take on every shifter in Georgia before he lets that happen.
No one lies sexier than a werelion.
Werecats are the most seductive and deceptive of all shifters. They can lie with the best of them, even to themselves. Even to their own hearts.
Curvy wildcat Ellie Lowe is lying to a whole town of werebears—and even to herself—trying to convince them she can manage a rundown B&B and raise her half-wildcat, half-werebear son just fine all by herself. She can even pretend she doesn’t find the new werelion in town, Aubrey Drummond, as sexy as sin itself. If she can’t keep up the front, the bear clan that claims Grayslake, Georgia as their territory might also claim the right to take Ellie’s son.
Aubrey Dreyer, aka Drummond, has been lying all his life, professionally, first as a double agent in the special marshal’s unit tasked with hunting the shifters and other supernaturals hiding among humans. Now he’s intelligence for the alliance of cat shifter clans known as the Panthera. The enclave of fugitive cat shifters he’s trying to convince the Grayslake bear clan to allow in their territory is really a safe house for werecat spies. If he doesn’t let his respect for the bear clan leader and his growing attraction to Ellie Lowe get in the way, he just might pull it off.
But interspecies shifter politics and government intrigue have to take a backseat when Ellie’s son goes missing. All bets are off, all pretenses come down, and Ellie and Aubrey must confront the truth about themselves if they are going to save the boy and any hope of the three becoming a family of their own.
Lyin’ Heart is a BBW paranormal shapeshifter romance novella bringing together the worlds of USA Today bestseller Erika Masten’s Panthera shifters (first appearing in the Aesir Shifters werewolf romances) and NYT bestseller Celia Kyle’s Grayslake: More Than Mated shifter series.
