The only possible salvation is to escape to Earth and try to hide.

However, no one has ever survived the fate awaiting those that violate the Sentinels’ Covenant and the Stalkers have always found their quarry.

After all, the girls around the office call Charles Dixon “Blue Bear” and “Bluebeard” for more than just his naturally navy locks and his ability to turn into a giant four-legged predator: he’s a playboy who has a new woman on his arm every week, and Poppy’s not about to become a notch on his bedpost…that is, if she can resist his charms…

Womanizing werebear billionaire Charles Dixon, head of the Asher Lumber Company’s regional sales branch, had the dangerous combination of well-earned cockiness and a tall, hard, strong body that would be hard for any hot-blooded woman to resist. Able to keep a cool head under pressure, he’d managed to get where he was in the business world with a combination of charm and intellect, although his family connections had helped too. The only thing he didn’t have? His fated mate, but from the moment he set his eyes on sassy human Poppy, he knew he had to have her…and when he heard her name for the first time, he knew he might have what he’d been looking for so long, finally within arm’s reach…

More importantly…will she let him be her prince in shining armor?

She’s a workaholic whose story isn’t like that of the interns surrounding her. He’s a billionaire bear with a mysterious past, and even more mysterious future. There’s no frikkin’ way they’re supposed to be together, and they know it…so why is the chemistry between the pair absolutely unbearable?
