Bucking Fate: A Shifting Destinies Bear Shifter Romance (Black Claw Ranch Book 5) Kindle Edition
Her kidnapper will kill to keep her. So will her mate. She must decide—fight or flee.
Overcoming her torture. . .
Kidnapped and changed against her will, submissive Nora escapes to the small shifter town Bearden. There she rebuilds her courage and her shattered life.
But the kidnapper’s mark prevents her from mating Jesse, a sexy cowbear as kind as he is strong.
A man who gives her the encouragement to slay her fears and take back her independence.
When her past comes howling into town, she can plant her feet and fight or she can turn tail and run—saving everyone but herself.
Guarding her from peril. . .
Under Jesse’s stoic calm, the ghost of a grim childhood rages. When he meets the reserved Nora, he recognizes in her a kindred pain—and the spark of an undiscovered strength.
Strength they will need when a familiar enemy tracks her down and threatens not just her life, but their clan.
Nora’s instinct is to sacrifice herself to save the clan. Jesse’s is to tear down the enemy’s walls and salt the earth with their blood.
Bucking Fate, book 5 in the Black Claw Clan series, is a steamy werewolf bear shifter paranormal romance for readers who love fated mates, heroines in peril, and tortured cowboy heroes who cherish the women they love.
Download now because you love the story of two tormented fated mates healing and defeating an enemy—together.

This particular installment of the series is about the clan second, Jesse King. Jesse and Ethan, the clan alpha, had grown up together. And, dealt with their disappointing and abusive fathers together. They broke away from their past and built a future together. Jesse is a great second, helping to keep the rest of the clan in line and run the ranch. However, he is the only one without a mate now, and is feeling restless.
Then, he meets Nora Morgan. Nora is new to town, running from those hunting her and what they had done to her. Nora is a gentle soul. Human once, now a shifter struggling to communicate with the wolf inside her. She finds herself and her wolf drawn to Jesse. However, she may not be free to truly bond with Jesse.
Jesse’s father comes back to try to reconcile with his son. Jesse is not convinced that his dad has changed, based on his previous experience with the man.
Nora struggles to find her strength in herself and her wolf. She needs to find that inner strength to fight for what she truly wants, and understand that being a gentle and giving person is not a bad thing.
Jesse finds that those hunting Nora are the same that have been repeatedly stalking the clan and the clan must come together as the family they are to end this battle once and for all!
Wonderful story. The series wraps up nicely. There are lots of secondary characters with unique and intriguing personalities that can be developed into their own stories. I am hopeful for stories featuring the lion pride on the neighboring ranch and hopeful for cameos by the Black Claw Ranch clan in them.
Again, so happy to have found Cecilia Lane. A new author to me, but excited to read more of her works.
Jesse King had to break up a fight between one of the lion shifters from Trent’s pride and one the bear shifters from his alpha’s clan. No one else was taking any action, so he handled things. Trent walked over after the bears left and offered Jesse a permanent job. He liked how Jesse prioritized, waded right in, and handled the situation. And the fact the bears left was because Jesse was the only unmated bear and those with mates thought being with them was more important than fixing the fence. The lions didn’t have a mate issue and Trent thought Jesse would be a good addition.
Nora still hadn’t adjusted to her freedom. She startled at anything abrupt, loud, or sudden. She put her laundry in, then went to see the baby chick and sketch them. But a man came up behind her and spoke, frightening her and letting her wolf get out of control. So she was late for work at Hogshead Joint and her boss was upset. They had a band and it was going to be a busy night. One of her first tables had a trouble-maker type and, as they drank, he smacked her on the rear as she turned. Her boss saw and told her to take a quick break, so she went outside and fought for control of her wolf. A man came over, the same one she saw earlier at the chicks. He said his name was Jesse King and asked her if she ever owned any chicks and other short questions; and before long, her wolf was quiet and she was calm! He helped her up and she went inside.
Jesse’s skin tingled where he had touched her. He went inside to meet with his father who wanted his forgiveness for his failures as a father. But Jesse saw the rowdy table guy smack Nora again and he flew across the room to grab him. The diner’s owner told him the man had been warned he would be tossed off the deck next time – so Jesse took him out to the back porch and tossed him! He became Nora’s hero and she could not hide her smiles at him. He walked over to Trent to tell him he couldn’t take the job with him. He wouldn’t be single for long – he had just met his true mate! Would Nora tell him about Viho and that she is already mated, even though against her will? What would they do when Viho came back into her life and wanted to force her to come back to him?
This was a wonderful story, full of emotion and strong feelings. The characters were memorable. Even the weaker ones had a core of strength that only needed to be tapped and encouraged. Could Nora stand up for her new life and love? Could she trust Jesse to protect and fight for her? Grab your copy and see what direction her life will take now.
