Spotlight: Bear with Me Now

Things aren’t going so great for Teagan van Zijl. They haven’t been going great since his mother died two years ago and he was left as the CEO of their family’s charity foundation. The same foundation that is now bleeding money. To make matters worse, after a brief stint in the hospital for depression, Teagan’s sister signs him up for a therapy retreat in the wilderness Montana.

As a born and bred city boy, Teagan doesn’t know the first thing of surviving in the wilderness. So, it comes to no surprise that he finds himself face to face with a bear and almost eaten. Thankfully an angel in muddy hiking boots comes to the rescue. An angel who seems to know everything Teagan doesn’t.

But what Teagan doesn’t know is that things aren’t going so great for Darcy Albano either. She wasn’t supposed to be working as the retreat’s handywoman, nor was she supposed to be recently single after her ex stole her car. Oh, and the fact that her parents ruined her credit score? Don’t even get her started.

Yet when their paths cross, the last thing either of them expects is to form a bond with one another. One that will extend much farther than the woods of Montana.

Purchase Bear with Me Now

"A funny, poignant, romantic exploration of mental health and of the way love can help us heal. Katie Shepard has a unique talent for mixing gentle humor, weighty topics, and swoony moments. You will fall in love with Darcy and Teagan on page one and you will laugh, and cry, and cheer as they discover themselves and each other. A perfect, dazzling debut, and the start of my new favorite series! (And let’s not forget the bear, the wolves, and all the otters…)"
—Ali Hazelwood, New York Times bestselling author of Loathe to Love You

"Angsty, swoony, sharply written, and full of heart, Bear with Me Now is a deeply compassionate romance about finding love in the midst of profound struggles and vulnerabilities, discovering the gift of entrusting all of yourself to a worthy someone to love and be loved by in return."
—Chloe Liese, author of Two Wrongs Make a Right
