BBQ, Bikes, and Bears
by Lisa Oliver
It's been almost twenty years to the day that Clive lost the love of a shifter who'd found his true mate. Now, he plans to celebrate the 4th of July with beer, barbecue, and maybe some hot company. As president of the Epitaphs MC, he's never short of company, but when his musing about his previous love takes a melancholy turn, he decides a bike ride is the cure for the depressing cobwebs in his brain.
Roy Carmichael is one of the new police officers in Orlando, and as such, has been stuck on traffic duty on a public holiday. With only a few minutes left to go on his shift, he's dreaming about grilled meat and maybe a swim to cool off after being stuck in a car on a hot day. His dreams are interrupted when a bike roars past him, going far faster than the speed limits allow. Roy loves a good chase and figures it’s the perfect end to a slow shift.
One sniff and Roy's bear knows he's found his forever, but between Roy's job and Clive's, mated life isn't going to be easy. The Black Skulls MC is sniffing around and wants a merger with the Epitaphs, and one of the Epitaph members isn't happy that Roy's bounced into Clive's life. Fireworks are guaranteed.
The first 6000 words of this story was published for free on Stormy Glenn's ManloveFantasies blog. A further 30,000 words have been added to complete this book. Readers familiar with my Alpha and Omega series will remember Clive from book one - The Biker's Omega. Deeper understanding of the secondary characters would be gained from reading that book first, but isn't strictly necessary.
This is an MM true mates story between a rugged bear shifter and a human who wonders if he's getting too old for some of the crap going on around him. Intimate situations and some violence warnings apply.
