So many tiers of problems here… actually, just two: he’s her boss, and a bear. Still, it sounds like a fun ride! And I have the Hero with me, and you know how much I love having characters over!
Bear’s Edge (Stranger Creatures book 2) by Christina Lynn Lambert is a paranormal romance.
A boss can’t date her employee—simple as that. No matter how much Shayla wants to unravel a few of Grant’s mysteries and take her friendship with the shy, sarcastic man to the next level, she’s determined to keep her fantasies of him to herself.
After bear shifter Grant lost his girlfriend and three best friends in a fire, he did his best to shut himself off from everyone around him. Falling for Shayla wasn’t part of his plan, but after a kiss that leaves them both speechless and hungry for more, Grant can’t keep his desire for his boss under wraps any longer.
When things between the two of them get hotter than he could have imagined, Grant wonders if some of his darker desires will be too much for Shayla or will she embrace the needs he’s kept hidden for so long?
An obnoxious reporter and Shayla’s bitter ex have teamed up to chase down conspiracy theories that could destroy Shayla’s business and worse, put her life in danger. To find their happily ever after, Shayla and Grant will have to trust in each other and find a way to crush all the obstacles standing in their way.

Barnes and Noble:
And here with me today I have Grant, the hero, to play a game of This and That.
Hi Grant, and thank you for being here today. Let’s start!
Dog or Cat?
Both. I mean, how can you choose?
Netflix or YouTube?
Probably YouTube. I like the tutorials on how to fix things. Also, watching the video clips of people falling off stuff and doing stupid things makes me happy.
Phone Call or Text?
Text. That way I can respond when I feel like it and keep the conversation as short as possible. Except with my girlfriend Shayla. I’d rather hear her voice on the phone than text her.
Toast or Eggs?
Um, I’ll take my eggs on toast. I’m a bear shifter. We eat a lot. I’d be grouchy as hell if all I ate for breakfast was a piece of toast or an egg.
Cardio or Weights?
Depends on the day. Some days I like running. Other days I lift weights, or truck tires, or lumber for my next renovation project.
Facebook or Twitter?
I don’t bother with either. If I want someone to know something, I’ll just tell them.
Ice Cream Cone or Snow Cone?
Ice cream. Mint chocolate chip is my favorite flavor.
Mobile Games or Console Games?
All the games. Even board games. But Build and Destroy is my favorite online multiplayer game because I can create something with a set amount of materials and then I can get even more points for destroying everything I built.
While walking: Music or Podcasts?
Music. Only music.
Form or Function?
Function first, always. When I build something or create something, it has to have a purpose and reason for being other than “it’s pretty.” Putting function before form first requires too much reverse engineering.
Pop or Indie?
Cake or Pie?
Cake and pie. As long as I don’t have to cook them. Either way, I’ll eat my dessert with fruit on top.
Swimming or Sunbathing?
Swimming. I love swimming whether I’m in bear form or human form.
Big Party or Small Gathering?
Small gathering. Big crowds kind of freak me out.
Rich Friend or Loyal Friend?
Loyal friend. I don’t care how much money someone has. If their decent to me that’s all that matters.
Football or Basketball?
Football. It’s way more fun to play shifter football and tackle everyone in my way.
Work Hard or Play Hard?
Work hard but leave it at work. Play hard when I’m done working.
Nice Car or Nice Home Interior?
I like my big truck. I’m not much into decorating.
Bath or Shower?
Shower. I’m too tall to fit in the bathtub.
Hamburger or Taco?
Hamburgers. Lots of hamburgers.
Most important in a partner: Intelligent or Funny?
Amusement Park or Day at the Beach?
I’d rather have a day at the beach swimming, playing volleyball, having a cookout. I refuse to get on a roller coaster.
International Vacation or a New TV?
I’d rather travel. As long as it’s not one of those cruises where you have to do a bunch of stupid group activities.
Honesty or Other’s Feelings?
Total honesty is probably never a good idea but I try my best not to be fake either.
Winter or Summer?
Winter. Being a bear shifter in freezing weather doesn’t bother me at all.
When sleeping: Fan or No Fan?
Always a fan. I like the sound.
Grant the mystery man—a delicious mystery Shayla would like to unravel, piece by piece, layer by layer. Ah, but I can’t. I’m his boss. In a different lifetime, if we didn’t have the whole boss-employee obstacle going on…. No harm in looking, though, just a little, since he sat so close. She promised herself to keep her thoughts G-rated—okay, maybe PG-13. Grant had a talent with numbers and paid attention to detail. Also, he was a little shy and standoffish to a lot of people when it came to anything other than work. Shayla wondered where he sometimes went in his head, because, every now and then, his smile slipped from his face, just for a second, before being replaced with one a little harder. None of my business, she reminded herself.
She had really wanted to hug him this morning after seeing him so frustrated but decided it might be wiser and more appropriate to show him there were a few people on his side. Seeing him break things and try to be all strong and humorous about it made Shayla want to unravel the Grant mystery even more. It kind of hurt to watch him pretending to be fine, but all she could offer him was lunch and good conversation. Hopefully, Mr. Strong and Silent—Sydney called him that sometimes, although never to his face—knew Shayla and Sydney cared. And Shayla did care. Because he’s a friend. Just a friend.
About the Author
A few years ago, I read my first romance novel and I was hooked, so much so that I decided to give the idea of writing a story a chance. My style is more gritty than sweet and I look forward to writing many more stories with strong heroines and imperfect but determined characters. Love, courage, hope, and second chances are a few of my favorite themes. When I’m not writing about sexy, strong-willed characters facing nearly insurmountable obstacles, I enjoy spending time with my family, usually hiking or swimming or finding a new place to explore.
