AbandonedWhen bear shifter, Anya Tucker fell in love with the wrong man, the only thing she left with was a broken heart—and her two bear cubs. Now she’s mended her wounds and learned that in order to raise her babies she can only trust herself. When her sons meet the lazy cat next door and fall heads over tails for him, she’ll do whatever she takes to protect them—even from a past she’d thought she’d left behind.
Cole McDermott is a jaguar on a mission. Long naps, a willing woman, and a full stomach is usually all he needs when it comes to relaxing after a long day of protecting his Pack. Then he meets Anya and the burn of temptation is silky and tantalizing indeed. When a horror from Anya’s past threatens everything she loves, Cole will put everything aside and fight for her family—as well as his own.
UnseenNicole Bradley had no reason to live after the humans murdered her son. Not until she learns to hunt down those responsible for his death. Shifting into her wolf form at night, she slips out of the compound, determined to do as much damage as possible. The last thing she expected was to discover secrets that could destroy the SAU.
Polar shifter, Tucker Stone, lives off the grid. It’s the only way the Unseen can avoid being rounded up by the humans and tossed into a compound. Besides, he’s a loner by nature. But he can’t walk away when he sees the pretty female wolf in danger. Risking exposure, he takes her to his hidden den and tries to heal her wounds.
Can a reclusive polar bear and a wolf with a death wish find happiness together?


After the SAU (Sifter Accommodation Unit) forced the Ursines, the Canines and the Felines to live together in one compound everyone knew that life was bound to become harder. No one understands that better than Anya Dare, a bear shifter and single mother to twin bear cubs, Owen and Lucas.

Anya already has a difficult time trying to keep up with the cubs especially since their favorite hobby is playing with the tail of a very lazy jaguar shifter, Cole McDermott. Cole realizes that he shouldn’t encourage the twin monsters play with his tail all day long but he misses children and he would never say no to them. What he can’t understand is why their mother Anya seems to hate him so much.

All their differences are pit aside when Anya’s cubs go missing and Cole will do anything to find them.

I loved how the attraction between Anya and Cole was there from the beginning, how Anya resisted the bond that knew they could have but at the moment her cubs are gone she becomes feral. She’s practically pulling at the jaguar’s tail to find her children and he’s more than willing to help this stubborn woman.


This one is quite special since we get our very first glimpse at the Unseen pack.

Nicole Bradley lost her young son because of the SAU brutality. No one was held responsible for her son’s murder but Nicole never forgot the face of the man who destroyed her life. Nicole manages to leave the compound undetected so she can hunt the people responsible for her son’s death. The only thing she wasn’t counting on is the polar bear shifter determined to stop her.

Tucker Stone and his pack have been collecting evidence against the SAU for a very long time and he can’t let Nicole ruin their only chance to get justice. When he finds out about Nicole son he heart aches for the lovely woman who refuses to listen to reason. He wants her and he’s not shy to admit it.

Unseen was a great story and I really loved it. We get to see the Alpha of the Unseen Pack, Sinclair who with the help of a human woman, Mira uncover more SAU secrets. I was so intrigued. I want to read more about Sinclair and his plan but this was Nicole and Tucker’s story and I was happy for them. I do hope we see more of the Unseen pack though.

Abandoned and unseen were two great additions to the Branded series. Action, suspense, romance, bear and jaguar shifters and two incredible bear cubs. It had everything!
