Synopsis (Goodreads):
Riley Gold is on the run. Her ex-boyfriend has been stalking her for the last year and she can’t get out of Dodge, Oregon fast enough. However, she should have planned her escape better, and maybe she wouldn’t have ended up caught in a rainstorm, in the dead of night with a flat tire. Trapped in the woods and miles away from the next town, Riley sets off on foot to a large cabin home for help and refuge for the night. Is it just her imagination or is someone…or something following her?

With the First Moon Festival on its way and pheromones saturating the air, Theo Kodiak is a sniff away from going feral. As the father of two boys, it doesn’t leave him a lot of time to find a companion to help raise them. Low and behold, fate shines down on him and presents a sensuous woman at his door. Riley is cold, scared and in danger, but she just maybe exactly what he needs in his life. The erotic attraction between them can’t be evaded and soon they are swept under a tidal wave of euphoria.

When a threat from both their past jeopardizes everything that is important, Riley and Theo find themselves united and a force to be reckoned with. However, something else may stand in the way of this Were-bear getting his gold.
Thoughts on Bear's Gold: I do enjoy a twist on established fairytales. In this instance, Riley ends up shacking up with Theo and his boys when she's stranded on the mountain road. Naturally, the big Moon Festival is coming up and Theo's considering choosing a new mama for his boys.

There's attraction. There's the denial of attraction (don't worry, that doesn't last too long). There's a shady ex who won't let Riley go.

Fun and sexy with a side of ... well, actually, it's just fun and sexy. There's a bit of backstory and a bit of angst. It works.
