When the world outside is crumbling, sometimes you have to be bold and make a stand.
Bear shifter Anthony Drake never wanted to be a billionaire. He never wanted the responsibility or public presence involved in running one of the nation's most promising and powerful startups. And yet, somehow, he'd ended up as president and CEO at the behest of his friend and the company's founder, with virtually zero business experience under his belt. When things start looking rocky, and he feels like he can't hold the company together anymore, Anthony decides to bring in some expert help. With one look at the curvaceous business savant, though, Anthony knows he's met his mate.
Smart, educated, and spunky, Julie Flanders has been teaching Fortune 500 heirs and heiresses how to run their inherited businesses for the better part of a decade. She has a no-nonsense attitude and a take-no-prisoners approach to creating some of the most well-ran companies in the world. So when she's hired by the notoriously inept Anthony Drake to help turn his bumbling business around, Julie knows she has her work cut out for her. Worse than that, she can't help but find the soft-spoken gentle giant of a man dangerously attractive, something that all but violates her personal code of ethics.
With a sharp deadline looming and secrets about Anthony's violent shifter past coming to light as a public relations nightmare, it's up to these two sharply contrasting individuals to right the ship before everything they've worked so hard to achieve collapses in front of their very eyes. It will take bold moves on both of their parts to stave off the impending disaster. Can Anthony keep his bear in check long enough to save the business and earn the respect and love of his mate? And will Julie be able to accept him despite his checkered past?
Bear & Bold is a standalone story with no cliffhanger about a growly bear and the curvy girl who loves him.
