~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thank you for the invitation to post, Jadette! I’d like to talk about a release that came out before Christmas, called Bear with Me.

Bear with Me is the tale of two pizzly bear shapeshifters who travel to the northern reaches of Canada and just happen to find their polar bear mate along the way. The story was inspired by a recent business trip I made up to Inuvik in the Northwest Territories, and I knew I had to feature the town in a story somehow. This wasn’t the first time I used a work experience to jump start a story, as the Horsfall series was created in a very similar fashion.

My stories tend to be grounded much more in fantasy in reality at times, but I love being able to mix real experiences into my tales. The town of Inuvik is an amazing place, and I had a fantastic experience driving around the town and perusing the awe-inspiring Inuvialuit artwork. I wanted to find a way to take a little piece of that experience and share it with others.

Of course, me being me, I knew I also had to have a bit of fun with it and that’s when I thought up my boys. Christopher and Robin are your typical hyper, sexy, smartass men. Theo, in contrast, is methodical, quiet and a tiny bit possessive. I thrust them together in a confined space on an airplane and they took over from there ;)

Luckily, they’ve already demanded more stories about themselves and so a second tale in the Northern Bears will be out in May. It’s called Unbearable and will pick up where Bear with Me left off. I’m hoping that people will have as much pleasure reading both stories as I did writing them J

Blurb: When pizzly bears Christopher and Robin travel to the Northwest Territories for work the last thing they expected was to fall for the same man. Luckily, polar bear Theo -- Teddy to his friends -- has plans in mind for both.



Happy reading,
Jade Buchanan

I haven't read a polar bear shifter story before! And I love stories in which three people get together :) Knowing there will be a second story makes me want to read it even mote. I wish I came up with these kind of stories while traveling, would make it a lot more fun!

Thanks for letting me play today, Jadette! Glad to be here.

I'm not always sure if it's a good thing or not! LOL! I can be a tad bit quirky when I start brainstorming ;)

I love how you've woven the fantasy/shifter world into a M/M possibly M/M/M(?)story. I never saw myself liking the M/M stories before, but once I tried them? I really enjoyed them! Your story sounds light hearted and the excerpt was a nice tease.

Thank you! I'm glad you both liked the excerpt :)

I was the same way when I started reading m/m, like a switch went off. Best decision ever for me lol!
