From Book 1: The head of Orsino Security was hired to protect her for a week. Instead, his bear wants to claim her forever.
It takes one look for bear shifter Salvatore Orsino to know that Natale Durante isn't just his client… shes his mate. His first instinct is to lay Natales curvaceous body over his shoulder, find a den, and claim her with his bite. But, this beautiful head-strong woman only grudgingly endures his protection even as she welcomes him in her bed. Hell have to set aside his bears need to mark her until hes eliminated the threat to her life. Once shes safe, hell turn all his energies convincing her that he isnt after a short-term dalliance, he wants her, with him… forever.
Natale Durante knows that Durante Fashion House is on its last legs. Her new line, designed for women of every size and shape, is her last attempt at saving her familys legacy. But there are those in high fashion who prefer that things stay the samecurves belong on the road, not the runway. When complaints and hate mail escalate to threats of bodily harm, her father hires a bodyguardSalvatore Orsino. Hes over six feet of deliciously seductive muscular male and a distraction she cant afford. One look from him and she wants her infuriatingly persistent protector to rip off her clothes with his teeth, or she might do the same to him.
Can Salvatore eliminate the threats to Natale or will he lose her before he has a chance to claim her?
