Book Two in the Agents of Balance and Chaos Series
Brown bear-shifters are known for their strength and resilience. Their wildness and ferocity. No bear-shifter embodies these attributes more than Chief Leona. She's strong, confident. A force to be reckoned with. She plans to use her strength to win the upcoming Bear Festival; the centennial contest where shifters compete to be deemed worthy by the Gods. The prize? The opportunity to guard the bear-shifter's most holy relic.
This year is different. Not only are there forces at work in the world at large, but her Clan Elders are pressuring her to choose a mate. The candidates? Twin brothers, polar-bear shifters from a neighboring clan. Too bad for them, she has no interest in taking a mate, no matter how much she may be attracted to the youngest twin.
Zandros fell into lust as soon as he laid eyes on Leona. She was fierce, unexpected, and everything he thought he hated in a woman. The more he gets to know her, the harder he falls. He quickly learns his practiced flirtations and decadent kisses aren't going to win her, so what will? What would convince her that he is the man for her?
Leona contains violence, explicit language, explicit sex, some gore, mentions of torture, off page SA, mentions of SA, attempted SA, emotional trauma, physical abuse between sexual partners, violence against women, death, death of a child, mentions of child abuse, and self-harm/mutilation.
