Forbidden Midlife Mate

Book Cover: Forbidden Midlife Mate
Part of the Marked Over Forty series:
  • Forbidden Midlife Mate

My new boss awakened something deep inside me,
And it’s not just another hot flash.

When my husband ran off with our saloon’s hostess,
I left Montana, joining my college-aged son in Oregon.
Eugene’s a far cry from my little hometown,
But I did my best to blend in with the locals,
And tried heading out for a jog.
I thought I saw a hippie gathering deep into the trail—
Until they changed into a pack of wolves.
I screamed and ran for my life,
But my clumsy ass tripped and blacked out.
Now I’m waking up on a handsome stranger’s couch,
With zero recollection of what I’d seen.
Rex is intimidating and rough around the edges,
But something about him sets me on fire.
Things get even hotter when he ends up being my boss.
Too bad Rex is the only one who wants me around.
My coworkers at the rock club have it in for me,
And when they threaten me after work one night,
A nightmare comes to life before my very eyes.
In mere seconds, they shift from men to snarling wolves,
But I realize that nightmare is just beginning
When I look down at my trembling hands
And see snow-white paws instead.

Bear’s Midlife Christmas

Christmas is supposed to be the season of miracles. But seeing my ‘90s high school boyfriend change into a bear isn’t the miracle I’d hoped for.

I’ve spent my life trying to create the perfect family.
Now look at me, divorced at 44 with an empty nest,
Spending my first Christmas alone.
I just inherited my aunt’s winery up in Carlton,
So at least I’ll have that to keep me busy.
But when my high school first love shows up,
Nothing can distract me from the feelings rushing back–
Until reality smacks me in the face.
Corey took off 26 years ago and broke my heart,
Leaving me no choice but to move on.
But now here he is with his same boyish charm,
Asking for a second chance.
As we go on some festive dates together,
I finally start to let my guard down with him–
Until I find out he’s been hiding a dark secret.
He’s not only capable of morphing into a bear,
He was under a feral curse for all those years.
And when a wolf from his past comes looking for revenge,
So much for a holly, jolly Christmas–
I’m now caught in the crossfire between two vicious beasts.

Next Door Midlife Bear

When I said I needed a midlife reboot, growing pumpkins in a town full of bear people wasn’t what I had in mind. Neither was falling for one of them.

I should’ve been more specific when I asked the universe for a change
Because here I am at 44, left with my late aunt’s rundown farmhouse
And a pumpkin patch I know jack about running.
But hey, at least it came with a view.
My hot new neighbor stepped out of the shower in plain sight,
Giving me a very warm welcome to the neighborhood.
Turns out Duke’s not only a hunky cop but the chief of police.
When I run into him at a Halloween party in town,
There’s no disguising the raw desire between us.
And for a woman who’d never seen herself with kids,
His three little ones burrowed their way into my heart.
But not everyone in town is as welcoming as the McMillans.
Hillbillies are trying to intimidate me into selling my land,
And when they realize I won’t budge, all hell breaks loose.
Now I’m uncovering dark secrets that should’ve remained hidden,
And Duke swears he’ll stop at nothing to protect me.
But I’ll soon discover Duke and his kids have a secret of their own.

Cursed Midlife Bear

When I turned 40, getting divorced was nowhere on my radar.
Neither was getting pregnant with a cursed bear shifter's baby.

Have a divorce party, they said. It'll be fun, they said.
It was, until I ended up in handcuffs.
A group of Karens rained on my parade at the winery
And in my drunken haze, I mooned every last one of them—
Along with the responding officer called in to arrest my ass.
Not a good look for a teacher starting off in a new little town.
When he cuffed me, I stumbled into his rock-hard body,
But he softened up once he brought me down to the station,
Taking pity on me and caring for me throughout the night.
The charges were dropped the next morning,
So he gave me a ride home, and I offered him breakfast.
But Landon was hungry for me and jumped right to dessert.
Fast forward to now, when I find out I'm pregnant at 40,
But the fun doesn't end there.
Apparently, Landon's part bear.
Oh, and his family? Yeah, they've been cursed for generations.
Now my unborn child could turn out to be a feral beast—
Just like Landon's brother, who's now on the hunt for me.

Leaving me to raise our two children on my own.

And the moment I meet the head chef,
His deep green eyes have me spellbound.

But with his bad boy looks and mischievous smile,
I know he’ll be nothing but trouble—
Especially when I hear he’s a bear shifter, just like my late husband.
His unusual last name sounds strangely familiar, though.
Intuition has me pull the police report for my husband’s case,
But it burst into flames in my hands when I saw the name of the suspect:
The same one belonging to the man I can’t resist.
Drew swears he didn’t kill him, but I don’t believe him.
Until my dead husband shows up at the restaurant alive and well—
With a new mate and two kids.

Alpha’s Midlife Baby: The Fated Over Forty Prequel

I’m fated to the Alpha, but I can’t give him the one thing he needs:
An heir.

They say life begins at forty,
But when infertility led to my divorce, it seemed more like the end.
When I’d rather be at home in my sweats binging 80s movies,
My dad begs me to go to Carlton with him for moral support
As he presents my much younger sister to their unmated Alpha.
We end up barging into his clan meeting—
Completely awkward, to say the least.
But not as awkward as when I realize he’s my fated mate.
When he tells me his bear knows we’re destined to be together,
We can’t help but give in to the fire between us.
But he deserves to know the truth:
I can never give him an heir, so it will never work.
Until, weeks later, I see the impossible:
A pregnancy test with two lines.

Alpha’s Midlife Baby is the prequel novella to the Fated Over Forty series. Steamy shifter love scenes and an HEA inside! No cheating or cliffhanger in this standalone romance. Readers 18+.

Along with my dreams of starting a business.

Nothing will stop me from making my dream a reality.

As crazy as it sounds after having three grown kids,

I loved being pregnant and know what to expect,
But when I meet Evan at a coffee shop,
My bear’s buzzing, and it has nothing to do with my latte.

And he wants us to start a family. Together.
Raising another cub was never part of my business plan.
Until we end up making it the old-fashioned way.

Alexis thinks she’s found the perfect deal: a dream job in Alaska as a park Ranger on a cruise ship, along with a free cruise for her training—an amazing opportunity for a new college graduate from the Everglades who wants to see the world. Making the trip even better is Cooper, the hot instructor who seems to be just as interested in her as she is in him.

When things end unexpectedly between them, he attempts to go on with his life, but he’ll never forget the sassy, fun-loving woman he spent a few magical days with.

When all attempts to contact each other fail, Alexis and Cooper are left trying to forget their cruise—and each other. But for Alexis, that’s impossible once she learns she’s pregnant with Cooper’s baby. Now she must do all she can to find him. Will fate bring this young family together once again, or are they destined to spend their lives longing for each other?

Dragon’s Midlife Soulmate

After a hellish divorce at 48, I’m ready for a new life.
But I just found out this isn’t the only one I’ve lived.

My husband sent pics of his eggplant to every woman in Florida,
And once I caught on, it was time to divorce the pig.
I packed up the RV we’d planned to drive cross-country together,
And headed off on an adventure, all on my own.
I rolled to a stop in Carlton after finding a paramedic job,
But it felt like déjà vu when I met the hunky fire chief,
And a fiery blaze ignited between us instantly.
I can’t shake the feeling we’ve met before,
And when a medium unlocks the secret to my past with August,
This little midlife adventure of mine turns into a straight up freak show.
You see, even though he looks about fifty,
August is a six-hundred-year-old dragon.
And my husband from a past life.

Bear’s Midlife Psychic

It took 49 years, but I finally have the quiet life I’ve always dreamed of.
Except for the departed souls who’ve decided I’m their new BFF.

After three strikes, I’m out of the marriage game for good,
Fully ready to embrace my inner crazy cat lady.
I’d kept my psychic medium abilities in the shadows,
Until my friend pushed me into the spotlight at Afterlife After Dark.
An introvert like me had no business giving readings on stage,
Trying to prove myself to skeptical strangers—
Like the hunk across the room arching his silvery brow at me.
The stormy-eyed firefighter asked for my help,
Looking for clues about his fallen comrade’s death.
But the moment I envisioned bear paws instead of his buddy’s hands,
Weirdly enough, I made a believer out of him.
I thought that was the last I'd see of Hugh, until he showed up at my door,
Wanting to know if I could tell him more—
And then showing me a wild night neither of us would ever forget.
Could this actually be the start of something new,
Or is he just using me as a psychic hotline?
All I know is the more I uncover about this mysterious death,
The more my life’s in serious danger.
And once the truth comes out, all hell’s gonna break loose.
