Editor’s Note: I’m a part of a new anthology coming out on 8/18 from Dreamspinner Press: A Taste of Honey. And while the book is not Fantasy, Sci Fi or Paranormal per se, some of the stories in it include magical realism or present-day fantasy. I hope you’ll indulge me as I share the intros to a number of these stories in the lead-up to the book’s release. :) –Scott
Coming from Dreamspinner Press on August 18th – A Taste of Honey – the ultimate bear romance anthology. Guys don’t have to be in their twenties, perfectly sculpted, and hairless to be hot. Bears are real men with real bodies–and that doesn’t always mean a perfect six-pack or an immaculately smooth chest. With bears, it can mean more man to love. The men in this anthology are chubs, cubs, grizzlies, pandas, polar bears, and more–all looking for a connection. And beneath their burly physiques are hearts of gold. Explore the bear scene and beyond with these big, hairy guys and the men who find them irresistibly sexy.
Leading up to the release date, we’ve got a bear-a-day – the intro to each of these stories to whet your appetite for more.
Today’s Excerpt: “Bear Chasing” by Renae Kaye
He was a bear.
There was no doubt about it. He had that grizzly, strong, acorn-fed, oh-my look about him. And believe me, I had looked.
He’d moved into the house across the street all of three weeks ago–and bless me, I’d spent a lot of time gazing out my window since then. And it wasn’t the beautiful Perth sunshine that had me entranced. Jeannie hadn’t been impressed–three big guys with V-8 engines moving in? Then, on the second day, when they backed a trailer up to their new house with a shiny, professional dragster perched on top, Jeannie’s eyes had widened and she began talking about noise barriers and planting trees out front.
I didn’t want trees. I wanted my view. Of the house across the street. And my bear.
