Tales of the Were: Grizzly Cove

The Tales of the Were is made up of several sub-series, including the Grizzly Cove series, which follows a group of bear shifters trying to make their own town in the Pacific Northwest.


Without revealing too many spoilers, I can say that the turning point in the timeline of all these paranormal books is Matt. Grizzly Cove is the first of the post-Matt series in Tales of the Were.

All About the Bear

Welcome to Grizzly Cove, where the sheriff has more than the peace to protect. The proprietor of the new bakery in town is clueless about the dual nature of her nearest neighbors, but not for long. It’ll be up to Sheriff Brody to clue her in and convince her to stay calm—and in his bed—for the next fifty years or so. Yeah, that might be enough. Then again, maybe he’ll keep her forever.


Also available as an audiobook.
