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.

Flying high above the clouds fit my mood. Free at last. “If I’d known how good dumping the two-timing bastard would feel, I’d have kicked his sorry ass out a long time ago.”
“You did the right thing.” She patted my arm. “He had his chance–one more than I would have given him.”
The landing gear whirred into place as we broke through the clouds. Upon boarding, the attractive young woman beside me had introduced herself and struck up a conversation. The book I’d brought with me, A Bear Growls in Brooklyn, remained in my backpack, untouched. “I’m sorry. I hope I haven’t bored you.”
