Recent college graduate Jewel Long never received a chance to work in the family business because of her onerous cousin. No one, not even her mum, thought she could handle the responsibility. When her cousin needed her to bail him out of the mess he’d sunk the company in, she let him burn in the fire of her indecision. Hurt and disillusioned by her family, she didn’t want to be the stumbling block keeping her new lover and his son apart. Each day they spent together, it became harder to be noble. Could she walk away from the one person who accepted and believed in her without reservation? Or would she split the sea of his affections, costing him his flesh and blood? In the middle of a long, custody battle, Patch Grimes returned from his last assignment and met his mate at the worst possible time. Mating the human could kill his chances of joint custody and visitation rights with his four-year-old son. But that didn’t matter to his Bear or his heart. Embroiled in a tug of war with his heart, his ex refuses to back off, and his mate considers leaving. How could he live without either his son or his mate? When his son’s mother pushed to the courts to cut off all visitation rights, a line was crossed and his bear went into survival mode. When the dust settled, there would be one winner and one loser. Jewel’s Bear is Book Two in the Bear Mountain Patrol Trilogy.
