Jillian goes to the market to buy ingredients for soup...but winds up accidentally buying a huge Kindred warrior instead. Kalis wants to love and protect her, but he has a dark side--he turns into a huge, green Grizzly bear. Can Jillian get past her fear to accept his love and devotion? And can Kalis save her from her shady ex? Read Accidental Acquisition to find out! Milk--check. Eggs--check. Bread--check. One huge, muscular bodyguard who I now own exclusively...Wait! That wasn't on the list! Jillian Marks is an Executive Chef at a Kindred restaurant on the Mother Ship. Every Monday she goes to the Buy-All-Sell-All Market to get exotic, hard-to-find ingredients for her menu. But this time she's made an accidental purchase--one she didn't expect. While trying to buy soup ingredients for a special VIP dinner, she mistakenly buys a bodyslave as well--a huge, muscular Kindred warrior named Kalis, whom she now owns. And did we mention there are absolutely no returns, refunds, or exchanges? Kalis was captured and taken as a fighter in the Blood Circuit in his early twenties. Now, in his early fifties, he's used to serving a Mistress. And since he's been dreaming of Jillian for the past two years, all he wants to do is love and protect her. But he has another side--a darker side that comes to light when his new Mistress is threatened. Kalis is a B'varren Kindred who can turn, at will, into an enormous Ursus-- a terrifying beast resembling a Grizzly bear. Once Jillian sees his beast come out, she really doesn't want anything to do with her accidental purchase. But Kalis slowly wins her over, proving that he's good in the kitchen and the bedroom...not just the Blood Circuit. But in order to bond her to him, he must let her tame the beast inside him--which Jillian does *not* want to do. It looks like a hopeless case of buyer's remorse when she gets lured down to Earth by her shady ex. Can Kalis get her out of the terrible trouble she finds herself in? And can Jillian ever accept and tame his beast? You'll have to read Accidental Acquisition to find out!
