They must escape. No excuses, no regrets.
Driven by something they don’t understand, they roar, claw and fight their way to freedom. As they escape the only home they’ve ever known, the bears run headlong into a girl with entrancing eyes and a scent that warms them to the core. A woman that they’ve never seen before, but who seems mysteriously familiar. Suddenly, it all makes sense - that surge must have been fate, and this woman is... their mate!
These are two bears who do EVERYTHING together, and don’t take no for an answer. No matter what, they will take her, have her, and make her theirs. Forever.

An ancient book, a power untouched, and a heart unloved lead Keelin O'Brien from Boston to a small village on the coast of Southern Ireland. Determined to unearth the secrets lying hidden in the enchanted waters of the cove, Keelin has little time for a surly Irishman who infuriates her during the day and haunts her fantasies at night.
Inexplicably drawn to the woman who has stepped from his dreams and into his world, Flynn fights a stubborn battle against his increasing attraction for Keelin. Forces unknown have better plans for the two.
From New York Times Bestselling author, Tricia O'Malley, comes a new romance series set on the rocky shores of Ireland.
When twenty-three year old Tala Velsik appears in a last minute performance art piece, she has no idea that public nudity will be the least of her worries. Wearing nothing but silver paint and a pair of antlers, her body is bared to hundreds of eyes, but one penetrating stare simmers through the others, Adrian Caro.
Adrian Caro is one of the world’s most famous directors and photographers, but with striking features and a body made for sin, most would guess he belonged in front of the camera. Of course, the last thing Tala needs is romance, even with a walking Adonis. Mounting bills, a dead end job and a set of childhood memories most therapists would pale at; love is low on her list. Assuming, of course, her new admirer allows her to have a say in the matter.
Shocked yet thrilled by Adrian’s passionate domination, Tala can’t help but feel she’s standing on quicksand. For all his wealth, fame and talent, Adrian is tormented by his own demons; hiding secrets big enough to destroy them both.
When a crofter’s daughter is kidnapped from her home by a rival clan, two highland warriors come to her rescue, but which one will win her?
As far as Arabella is concerned, she didn’t need to be rescued. She had matters perfectly under control until two of her brawny clansmen thundered and blundered onto the scene with their swords unsheathed. Now, for her sake, Malcolm, the best swordsman of the Macrae clan is wounded. And Davy, his cagey russet-haired comrade-at-arms, refuses to leave him behind—insisting that Arabella tend the fallen warrior.
Arabella agrees, even though it means spending days and nights alone with two men who plainly desire her. Since Arabella’s reputation is already ruined, she now feels free to bestow her soiled virtue upon the man of her choice. But Davy and Malcolm—close as brothers—are willing to share her for a single night. Awakened to her own carnal desires, Arabella indulges the men. But when the arrangement lasts for more than just one night, and lust becomes love, Arabella is torn between the quiet depths of taciturn Malcolm and Davy’s sensual charm.
