Billionaire Jared Sinclair has found his mate, but she doesn’t know it yet. He isn’t even convinced he wants a mate and all that goes with it. Yes, he wants to claim her, but children, and marriage, he’s not sure that’s the kind of man he is.
Although his bear disagrees.
Kelly is juggling two jobs to support her mom and brothers. With debts to pay, she can only fantasize about what it would be like to be with a man like Jared. Until he offers her half a million dollars for one weekend.
One weekend … easy, right?
But they soon discover neither of them wants to walk away … and this is a bond they will both have to bear. Forever!

Jared is a self-made billionaire who isn’t exactly thrilled of his bear’s call to mate. Yes, he’s found his mate, but he’s a workaholic and a wife and cubs has no room in his life. Of course his way of thinking changes once he gets Kelly away for the weekend and realize his bear was right.
Jared had his moments where I wished I could reach into the pages and slap him upside the head. Some of the things he does are downright rude and uncaring, but he does his best to make up for all his initial actions and reactions.
Kelly is working two jobs to provide for her mother and two younger brothers so the attraction she’s felt for her boss from day one is mostly just a nuisance and his proposition an insult…or it would be if she didn’t find his dimples adorable.
A Bond to Bear is a fast paced quickie read with a sexy but stubborn bear shifter and a sweet girl who cares more than he would have expected. They have more in common than either would have expected, but with the shortness of the story it’s hard to get fully drawn into the characters. And just a warning…the last chapter is more of an epilogue as it jumps pretty far into the future. It kind of threw me for a loop and had me rereading to see if I had missed something.
