Bear Humbug! was previously released as part of the Shifter Wonderland Box Set
Declan and his brothers always volunteer to work the Christmas Holidays. Why? Because they know how important family is. And since none of them have a family of their own, they think it’s only fair for others to enjoy this special time of year.
However, this year, Declan, the Sheriff of Bear Bluff, is feeling like a bear with a sore head. He wants to have a mate, he wants to have a family. So when he meets his brothers for their traditional before-Christmas-shifts-begin-drink, he is feeling like Scrooge–all bah humbug!
What he doesn’t know, is fate is about to reward him in the best way ever.
Maria needs help, but where the hell is the sheriff?
When her sister died, Maria came to Bear Bluff to be the sole guardian of her nephew, Jason. Thrust into this strange town, she feels like an outsider. Worse, she is sure Jason sees her as an evil stepmother and has now run off up the mountain.
Scared he is going to freeze to death in the snow, she turns to the one man who should be able to help her, the sheriff. Because that’s his job, right? Only when she first meets him, his behaviour is so strange, she wonders if he’s just a guy in fancy dress. Is it possible the sheriff can pull himself together and help her find her nephew?
And why does he keep looking at her in a way that makes her stomach go all funny? Find out what fate has in store for these two in Bear Humbug!

My Rating: 4 Stars
“Bear Humbug” was book three and sadly the last in the Christmas Bear Brother’s series. I enjoyed this short, fun, and sweet Christmas romance. And though the series is over I will be reading more from this author in the future.
Declan and Maria…..
“Bear Humbug” was my favorite story of the three. And coincidentally, Declan is my favorite of the three sexy bear brothers.
Declan is the oldest brother and the sheriff of Bear Bluff. Like his brothers before him, he too is lonely and longing to find his mate, the woman he is meant to spend his life with. Because he has been lonely, he is frustrated leading to a grumpy existence. I liked Declan a lot. I didn’t think he was very grumpy at all. And Declan is about to receive an early Christmas gift. The best ever! Declan got his gift only a couple of days before Christmas when to his shock and surprise she shows up unexpectedly at his sheriff’s office. Unlike his brother’s mates who are shifters, Declan’s mate is human. Of course he doesn’t mind that at all. However he’ll have to take things slow as not to scare her away. She does not know about the shifter world.
Maria recently moved to Bear Bluff to take over the care of her only nephew. Sadly, her sister and husband were killed in an automotive accident, leaving behind their teenage son who is desperately trying to deal with life without his parents. Luckily he has Maria; she will do anything to be there for him. But unfortunately he runs away and Maria seeks the help of the sheriff to find him.
Although the attraction is instant and love is there at the very beginning as well, Declan takes things slowly. He must not only convince Maria that she is his mate, the woman he loves…..he must find a way to show her his bear without freaking her out. I won’t go into detail since this book is only 81 pages and you should read it to enjoy it.
This was a sweet, short story with a happy ending, of course. What made it even nicer was the Christmas theme. So if you are a fan of instalove, sexy stories, bear shifters and Christmas romance, I recommend this cute story.
