Mating a Grizzly is book two in the unusual Gallize paranormal shifter romance series by The New York Times best-selling author Dianna Love.
In this friends-to-lovers romance, Justin is an elite black ops warrior on a unique shifter team. He turns into a monster grizzly and rushes into danger without hesitation. But he’s having second thoughts on playing bodyguard for a Russian bear shifter princess.
How’d he get stuck guarding a prima donna who will look down her nose at him like the snobs in the bear clan where he grew up? But Elianna turns out to be nothing like he expected. She’s strong, pretty, and feels special, like she could be the one. He’ll never find out unless he can stop an assassin from killing him and kidnapping her.
Elianna’s sexy protector is the soul mate of her dreams, but giving in to the heat simmering between her and Justin can’t happen. She struck a deal in Russia to save a child who has no one but her. Justin makes her want things she can’t have – like mating – but the deal she made under duress prevents a relationship with him, or she’ll lose the little boy who is everything to her. Even so, she will not allow her dark past to kill Justin.
