Welcome to Grizzly Cove, where bear shifters can be who they are...if the creatures of the deep will just leave them be. Wild magic, unexpected allies, a conflagration of sorcery and shifter magic the likes of which has not been seen in centuries... That's what awaits the peaceful town of Grizzly Cove. That, and love...lots and lots of love. This anthology contains the first three Grizzly Cove novellas: All About the Bear Welcome to Grizzly Cove, where the sheriff has more than the peace to protect. The proprietor of the new bakery in town is clueless about the dual nature of her nearest neighbors, but not for long. It'll be up to Sheriff Brody to clue her in and convince her to stay calm-and in his bed-for the next fifty years or so. Mating Dance Tom, Grizzly Cove's only lawyer, is also a badass grizzly bear, but he's met his match in Ashley, the woman he just can't get out of his mind. She's got a dark secret, that only he knows. When ugliness from her past tracks her to her new home, can Tom protect the woman he is fast coming to believe is his mate? Night Shift Sheriff's Deputy Zak is one of the few black bear shifters in a colony of grizzlies. When his job takes him into closer proximity to the lovely Tina, though, he finds he can't resist her. Could it be he's finally found his mate? And when adversity strikes, will she turn to him, or run into the night? Zak will do all he can to make sure she chooses him.

This book traces the epic clash of values between traditional scenery-and-tourism management and emerging ecological concepts in the national parks, America’s most treasured landscapes. It spans the period from the creation of Yellowstone National Park in 1872 to near the present, analyzing the management of fires, predators, elk, bear, and other natural phenomena in parks such as Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, and Great Smoky Mountains. Based largely on original documents never before researched, this is the most thorough history of the national parks ever written. Focusing on the decades after the National Park Service was established in 1916, the author reveals the dynamics of policy formulation and change, as landscape architects, foresters, wildlife biologists, and other Park Service professionals contended for dominance and shaped the attitudes and culture of the Service. The book provides a fresh look at the national parks and an analysis of why the Service has not responded in full faith to the environmental concerns of recent times. Richard West Sellars, a historian with the National Park Service, has become uniquely familiar with the history, culture, and dynamics of the Service--including its biases, internal alliances and rivalries, self-image, folklore, and rhetoric. The book will prove indispensable for environmental and governmental specialists and for general readers seeking an in-depth analysis of one of America’s most admired federal bureaus.

There's only one way to win this game: break the rules. Halle Shifters Book 5 James "Barney" Barnwell is losing his ever-loving mind. Between the threat to the white shifters and a riddle he's been ordered to solve stands the woman who's been driving him crazy: Heather Allen, cousin to the white Fox. Barney can't concentrate on anything but getting a certain redhead under him in bed, let alone riddles. It takes all his strength not to bite her, but getting her scent on him could lead others to her, others that won't hesitate to put her cute little Hobbit ass in the ground. Heather will do anything she can to help Barney so long as the stubborn Bear bites her. Hell, at this point she'd take a playful nibble, but he's holding strong. Worse, he's got logic on his side. She agrees to his edict, but sets a time limit she's certain neither of them will be able to hold to. Despite his best efforts to protect her Heather is hurt while protecting her cousin from a mercenary attack. Barney rushes to her side and claims her, bringing her fully into his crazy world. With his mate's life in his hands, Barney has to solve the riddle and protect the white shifters before the enemy discovers that the Hunter has finally been caught by love.

Rain left her old life to find a fresh start. But a wolf shifter mate wasn't exactly what she was expecting… A new name, a new job, a new life—far from the dangers of her old one. Then Laurent walked into her restaurant and changed everything. The second-in-command for the Cherchez Wolf Pack, Laurent didn't expect to find his destiny in a roadside café. But there's no doubt in his mind that waitress-by-day, artist-by-night Rain is his mate. And the urge to be near her, to protect her, to have her is intoxicating. An unbelievably hot night leaves them both wanting more. But more with Laurent comes with an introduction to his extended family—of werewolves. Learning that supernatural beings are real is a shock, but becoming one turns out to be the best decision she's made in her new life. No matter how good things are with Laurent and the pack, Rain can't run from her old life forever. When a threat on the horizon tests the life they're building together, Rain will have to prove that her place is with the Cherchez wolves—no matter who says otherwise.
