Bear Valley: Where rugged men find more than a safe haven -- they find their mates. The moment I see Adelaide Spencer, I know she's my mate. Neither of us have given ourselves to another -- because we were both waiting for a moment like this. Her and me, under the stars, the night spread out in front of us, full of hope and a thousand tomorrows. But our pasts have collided in ways she doesn't know, and when she finds out, she'll never forgive me. Not for the mountain man I am, or for the bear I've been. But damn, I need her. Want her. Crave her. When our valley is threatened by outside forces, I'll do whatever it takes to keep her safe. To prove that I am more than the sum of my past mistakes -- that I can be her future. The rugged mountain men of Bear Valley are ready to defend their untamed love.
