* * * Connor & Lauren: The story that begins the entire Hope Valley dating app series! * * *

Sassy, warm-hearted Lauren Garcia doesn’t expect to find a husband. Cheated on by her high school sweetheart while raising her three younger siblings alone, she swore off men a long time ago. But she can never resist helping out a friend, and unfortunately, her friend Tamika needs her to test the brand-new dating app she’s been working on. Meanwhile, her boss has been making her life hell by forcing her to evict a bunch of guys who’ve built some cabins on government land. When Lauren meets her first Shiftr match, she’s horrified to discover that it’s none other than the biggest, brawniest one of these guys. Soon, the wrong kind of sparks start to fly between her and sexy, dark-eyed bear, Connor.

Raised in a broken home with an abusive father, bear shifter Connor has vowed to stay single, believing that his genes are tainted. All he wants is a secure, permanent home for him and his rag-tag clan. He’s only on the dating app as a paid beta tester, so what does it matter if the sexy, feisty piece who’s been trying to kick him off his own land is supposed to be his perfect match? But when Lauren discovers that her boss is lying about the land, and vows to help the bears, the two of them get close, and somehow his bear can’t stop purring for the lusciously curvy, quick-witted human.

While every nerve in Connor’s body tells him that Lauren is his, he can’t shake his belief that mating her will lead to heartbreak. But when a secret from his past emerges, leaving Lauren feeling like a fool for ever trusting him, will it break them apart, or bring an unexpected solution to the dark legacy that’s been blocking both of their hearts?

*** Although this is the 12th book in the best-selling series, it is chronologically the first book in the story. So, if you’re new to Hope Valley, this is the best place to start! ***

This is a standalone, full-length read, full of romance, laughs and sexy shifters. HEA and no cheating, of course! An additional story is included as a special FREE bonus!

What if your fated mate was just an app swipe away?

As the biggest, gruffest and growliest of all the bears, even Olsen Burchfield has a hard time locating his inner human. He knows he’s going to get kicked out of the clan if he doesn’t shape up and find himself a mate fast, but there’s a huge obstacle that nobody else knows about. Nobody, that is, except for a petite, curvy teacher named Dolores, who’s way too smart for her own good. 

Dolores Martin has learned the hard way that, while some scars are visible, others lie deep inside. And unfortunately, following a horrific trauma, she has plenty of both. When they threaten her chance of making a new life in Hope Valley, a tall, gruff, yet sexy stranger is the one person who can understand. But when Shiftr matches the two of them, they might as well be speaking different languages. 

The last thing Olsen deserves is a human mate, especially one as intelligent as Dolores. Meanwhile, Dolores’ promise not to give up on Olsen keeps getting smacked down by his constant rejections. 

Can these two big-hearted, but wounded souls find the strength they need in each other, and trust themselves to open their hearts to their perfect match?

What if your fated mate was just an app swipe away?


The smart little paw print app works its magic again when it finds a perfect match between lone wolf Nash Ashton and his curvy brunette co-worker Kenzie Winters. Too bad that they spend all their time bickering, and she can hardly stand to be in the same room as him! 

Nash is always playing the clown, determined that no-one will see the scars – both physical and emotional – that lie beneath his playful facade. But the more he wants the sexy, spunky Kenzie, the more he drives her crazy and pushes her away. 

Running from trouble back home and a forced marriage to her bullying cousin, Kenzie has found sanctuary in Hope Valley. She’s lonely, but life is good, when she’s not either freaking out about her past, or dealing with her hot but annoying colleague. And then she runs into her old friend, Lauren, who introduces her to a group of girlfriends, and a very unusual dating app. 

Kenzie is stunned and none too pleased when Shiftr matches her with Nash. But soon after, they make a shocking discovery which turns everything on its head. When Kenzie’s past begins to catch up with her, Nash may be the only one who can protect her. But first he needs to face up to the demons from his own past, and prove to her – and to himself – who he really is.

"This book was so intense at times, it was fantastic! Definitely a MUST READ!"

Found badly injured on a lonely forest road, Rockland Cooper can’t remember anything at all. All he knows is that he needs to stay away from cops and hospitals, and that he owes his life to an angel named Paige Flanagan, a feisty, curvy rock chick. As Paige takes him to a safe place and nurses him back to health, it’s not long before things start to heat up between the two of them, but his fears that he might be mixed up in something dangerous put the brakes on their mutual attraction.

Paige’s sarcastic, fun-loving personality has long been repressed by a life of enforced solitude with her eccentric mother, who has banned men from their lives. And then she comes across the handsome, terribly wounded amnesiac on her way to work one day. She doesn’t hesitate to help him, even though it could mean the end of her relationship with her mother. Sharing a small room with a complete stranger is everything her mother warned her about, but it’s also an opportunity to get to know each other without any preconceptions. And the more she learns about the fun, charismatic, tender-hearted guy, the less she can believe that he has any bad in him. 

Will Rockland’s discovery of who he is put an end to their budding relationship, or will it enable him to make a choice between a life in the shadows and a life-long love with the most incredible woman he’s ever met?

This is a standalone, 34,000-word romance. HEA and no cliffhanger!

What if your fated mate was just an app swipe away?


Ryzard Adler has always been the hothead of the Hope Valley bears, and a dark past makes him believe that he's not mate material. But when his clan forces him to find a mate through Shiftr and a 95% match comes up, an even darker secret comes out in the shape of Marilyn Faustino, which threatens his whole future in the clan.

When Marilyn had a one-night stand with a sexy, husky-voiced stranger two years earlier, she not only got scared half to death when he accidentally shifted, but became the mother of two identical cubs. She never expected to see their father again, and when Ryzard comes back into her life, seemingly as irresponsible as ever, the feisty beauty is less than impressed.

Ryzard needs to show Marilyn that he can be a good father to the boys. He still doesn’t believe that he’s good enough for their mother, but will his efforts convince him that maybe he’s mate material after all?

This latest episode in the Shiftr: Swipe Left for Love series is full of heat, laughs, lovable characters, and the cute little dating app that shows that every curvy girl has her purrfect mate out there!
