Ursus HorribilisBitter Creek Holler
While Rhee Hess is house-sitting in Bitter Creek Holler, waiting for her cousin Miz to return, she sees nothing wrong with earning a little extra cash.
And who knows? Lending a helping hand to Shep Buchanan, the family’s neighbor, might be Rhee’s ticket to gold. From Rhee’s point of view, he owes her anyway since his recent odd behavior cost her a job.
Buchanan is a bear shifter. He’s also a billionaire, a genius, and the head of a secret paranormal government agency. It wouldn’t be good if either shifters or humans discovered Shep’s brain is totally whacked.
His bear, after years of ignoring females in general, suddenly declares he’s found their mate. Before Shep can deal with that, he’s attacked with a death hex spell and the grizzly takes charge.
Shep needs help and his new neighbor in Bitter Creek Holler, though a conniving, spirit-weaving witch, could be his key to getting his mind unscrambled and his senses back. Unfortunately, their relationship proves to be tense from the start.
Rhee to her client: “You’re a billionaire grizzly. What you can’t crush, you buy, and what you can’t buy, you crush. In your world, real problems don’t even exist…”
Shep to the spirit weaving witch: “You’re a mouthy, mercenary, ball-busting witch. What do you know about problems? You just woo-woo them away…”
Shep’s thousand pound alter ego weighing in on the issue. “Shut it. She’s our mate.”
