Bear Valley: Where rugged men find more than a safe haven -- they find their mates. My daughter Finley takes after me: stubborn, untamed, and wild. But seven year old girls can't just roam free -- not when we live in bear country. Enter Kate. She's new in town, sweet as honey, and can somehow manage to wrangle my little girl. And somehow she's wrangled me, too. One night with her and I'm smitten -- more than that -- this woman is my mate. But I have a past that has my heart closed up, and the last thing I want to do is hurt a woman as precious as her. Kate has baggage of her own...she came to this valley to heal her wounds. And if I'm not careful, they might turn to scars. The rugged mountain men of Bear Valley are ready to defend their untamed love.
