Finally, his senses caught up with him. With a roar, Luke reared up on his hind legs in a move that was more threatening than predatory. But he knew it would serve his purpose and scare the intruder away, which is exactly what it did.

There was an unrecognizable scent. Another bear. He knew the woods better than anyone.
Every sound, every shadow…every scent. And the scent of a female was definitely unusual on Grizzly Ridge. A few months earlier, his older brother, Axel, had taken a mate.
Axel and Harper spent a lot of late nights running through the woods. Luke approached quietly, stalking her. It was always best to tread lightly until one knew what he was dealing with. It almost appeared blue where the sun hit it. But not as blue as her eyes. Never before had Luke seen a bear with blue eyes; when she finally noticed him and her gaze locked on his, those eyes flashed with electricity. It was almost a challenge. It was probably for the best. Back to the Den. Nothing good could come from a female bear. Particularly one clouded his senses so quickly and completely the way that little black bear had.
How could she have been so stupid? She never should have broken her rule and shifted while she was working. But this place. The ridge. It got to her. Something in the air created a need in her. The quicker she could get back to her car, the better. Not that she thought the grizzly would come after her. In fact, it was such a foreign sensation that the bear had elicited in her, it took her a moment to figure out what exactly it was. But when she did, she stopped dead in her tracks. That was ridiculous. She shook her head, her braid flipping back and forth. Or attraction or…or really, anything to do with sex.
Sex led to commitment, which led to a relationship, which always led to giving up everything she ever wanted. No way. Not ever. In all ways. It had been a technique that had worked well for her, too. She reached her car, slipped inside and locked the door behind her, as if that would keep out the feelings that slammed through her. She silently repeated the mantra until finally her heart rate slowed and she was once again in control of her body and her emotions.

She was alone. But maybe… She let her mind drift as she checked out her surroundings. Her fingers traced the faded photo of little Jordan Adams. Only five years old. Too long. Way too long. As long as she picked one. She shook her head.
No thanks. No male needed. Stunned into silencing her mind, Chloe stood frozen on the ridge and took it all in. Very disappointed. This female was different. His blood ran hotter with every breath in. She filled his senses. Her body shivered at the thought. But not out of fear. It was something else. Deep breaths. Breathe in. Breathe out.
