Trapped in the wilderness with no way to get home, Breanna should be afraid. So why is she so aroused by the tall, mysterious man who rescued her?

An Heiress in Distress

Breanna Dawson hears wedding bells in her future. The curvy heiress is engaged to Silicon Valley billionaire William Keys, and her parents are certain the marriage of convenience is the answer to her family’s humiliating money problems. Breanna would do almost anything to win her parents’ approval, but the thought of spending the rest of her life with a cold, cruel man is too much to bear — even for a dutiful daughter like her. The closer she gets to saying “I do,” the more suffocated she feels. In a moment of white-hot panic, her survival instinct flares, and she flees.

But her escape goes awry when she crashes her stolen car in the middle of a raging blizzard and wakes up half-dressed in a handsome stranger’s bed. Trapped in the wilderness with no way to get home, Breanna should be afraid. So why is she so aroused by the tall, mysterious man who rescued her? A single look from his emerald green eyes makes her body hum with need. His sexy smile, his possessive touch, and his deep, rumbling voice flood her mind with fantasies and leave her aching to submit to his every desire.

A Bear Shifter Meets His Mate

Bear shifter Rafe Cabello just wants to be left alone. Balancing the needs of his inner bear with running a multi-million dollar company is hard enough without the distraction of a relationship. But when a voluptuous woman wrecks her car right in front of him, he can’t turn away. He pulls the unconscious woman from the crash and carries her back to his cabin to patch her up. He has every intention of getting rid of her as soon as possible. But his bear has other ideas.

Every glimpse of her pouty lips makes him salivate with want. Every swish of her ample hips, every flutter of her lashes, every graze of her skin against his sets his body on fire. Rafe knows that if he acts on his growing attraction to Breanna, there’s no going back. His bear insists she’s their fated mate, and with every day that passes, it gets harder and harder to deny his animal’s fierce desire.

A Secret Revealed

But before Rafe can give into the passion flaring between them, he has to reveal his secret. And that secret may just send his sweet, curvy mate running as fast as she can all the way back to civilization…

A Well Worth Reading Book

by MJM2003

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Brenna is engaged to a silicon valley jerk whom she does not love at all but it keeps her family happy. However, she cant live the lie any longer and runs away telling the news of her engagemdnt being broken in an email. She tries to find hef friend but in the bad weather she spots a bear on the road and almost runs him over! Just as well she didn't as he is really a bear shifter called Rafe and he instantly recognises her as his mate! Oh the fun there is in this multi facetted story. We have lust, love, family loyalties, jealoysy and rage. But a HEA is on the cards but you need to read it yourself to enjoy the ride of the story. Very well written by Aria Chase who never fails to create a wonderful story that you will enjoy. Definitely recommended.

Running to her destiny

by RomanCindy

I loved the book. Breanna runs from a marriage she doesn't want, suffers an accident and meets Rafe. They are snowed in and Rafe has the knowledge that she is his mate. It is a sweet story and has a little action at the end but a very satisfying HEA.

Bearly Breathing

by grammatoni47

From the first page, Ms Chase snags us up into an adventure that leaves you holding your breathe from moment to moment. We meet Breanna, a human female who is on the run from not only her ex fiance but her parents. She's been sort of meek practically her entire life but that had more to do with trying to win her parents love and approval. Then days before a wedding she was being set up in she sends an email to the fiance breaking up with him and to her parents telling them she won't marry the guy they chose for her. She winds up driving one of the cars belonging to the household staff and takes off for parts unknown. Unfortunately those parts unknown include snow, alot of it, and to this California gal the two do not mesh. Especially when a bear is tossed into the mix. Then pencil in a bit of a car total crash and you have instant drama! The bear goes to check up on the "idiot' who can't drive snowey roads to come face to face with his mate---claimed by his bear who won't take any no from his human side. Picture silent battle of wills--lol. Well Rafe rescues Breanna from the car and takes her to his home.Now into this mixture add heightened sexual awareness between the two and the story gets better and better. Oh I mustn't forget the home invasion....but you need to read the book to see who invades whom!!
Fantastic story and it will keep you hanging on to the very last page!!!

Strength and love form a bond

by Helen Gee

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. Ms Chase always writes interesting storylines with characters who feel real, even if one may be a shifter. This story has quite a sad start but the female lead character is developed within the book to be a strong, independent woman. Her partner's character is strong from the beginning, of course with a softer side for his mate. I enjoyed reading this book and recommend it others.

Great sweet shifter romance

by Karen Capon

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. Another great Bear shifter romance by Aria Chase. Although this one is more of a sweet shifter romance with less action than what appeared in Bought By a Bear, but it's still a good read and I enjoyed it. And again my only complaint is it's quite short more of a novella than a novel. But if you enjoy Sweet Shifter romances then I can definitely recommend this one.

Running away

by John L

Aria Chase weaves a tale of paranormal love and romance with her patented bear-shifters. This is a fun and enjoyable read that takes the reader on an emotional escape from reality for a couple of hours, as the characters attempt to escape from theirs. I loved the gruff and strong shifters as they contrasted with the feminine, but not so delicate female character. And oh yeah, there are quite a few deliciously super hot sex scenes too. This is a voluntary review in exchange for a free book from booksprout.com.

Accidental meeting

by Anonymous

Breanna doesn’t want an arranged, loveless marriage, so she runs away. On her way to Calgary, she crashes in a snow storm and rescued by Rafe, a bear-shifter. Rafe has an immediate attraction to her, of which he fights it. We watch as their relationship evolves, although, they face danger from her jilted ex-fiancé, their bond strengthens and they overcome the obstacles.

This is a quick pace, fast action, romantic and sexy story that will entertain the reader. I truly enjoyed this book.I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

At last, someone who really loves her.

by Cindy H

This book was a great way to spend another hot summer day, with the setting deep in snow. Even though I must confess, even the thoughts of snow didnt keep the room from getting pretty steamy. I loved the characters and how they fit together. Awe, true mates; what we all dream of!
