For bear shifter Jamie, the army was easy compared to taking on the duties of a daddy bear to two orphaned children. When his best friend dies in a car crash, Jamie is solely responsible for Jasper and Juliet. When he meets his mate, in the form of delectable Dani Darling, he is scared he will be torn between his love and duty toward the children, and his love and need for his mate. Add in the minefield of being a single dad at the school gates, and he’s in for a bumpy ride. Teacher Dani Darling has moved to Bear Creek for a fresh start. She’s known heartbreak and loss, and wants this fresh beginning to be uncomplicated, so she sets herself a rule—No dating parents, or relatives, of the children in her first-grade class. But she had not factored in Jamie, and the way he makes her feel. Can she put her heartbreak behind her, and will Jamie still want her when her secret is revealed? Find out in Daddy Bear.
