Sherrilyn Kenyon has werebears in her Dark hunter books and her upcoming No Mercy is specifically about a werebear.

Hi SciFiFan -
I just came across a polar bear shifter book that sounds pretty good (however, I think it's only available on Kindle right now - at least that's all that comes up on Amazon) called 'Arctic Shift: Denali Heat, Book 1' by Lissa Matthews {the link is: Arctic Shift: Denali Heat

It came out on 8/24/10 thru Samhain Publishing at 298 KB and is the beginning of a series.

Lucien Eldred & melindeeloo I read the first of the dark hunter books and was not really all that thrilled with it and dont remember any bears... when do the bears show up in the series?

Thanks Lea!

(Great thread by the way, I love Laurenston's two bearshifters and now I'll have to search out some the other recs too:)

SciFi Fan - The bear family runs Sanctuary - the bar which is neutral territory for all the supernaturals (I am not sure whether it showed up in the first book) and Dev is one of four identical quads - I don't know that you could really start with no mercy if you haven't read a few of the other book. Unless you don't care about the world building, which is really bloated at this point, Kenyon has all kinds of different mythos, and gods and entities running around in the background - I had skipped a couple and found that I had missed some big things and had to search out an earlier book to fillin the holes.

Rachel Vincent's shifter series (book 1 Stray (Shifters Book 1)) has a werebear in one of her books (a bruin). I want to say it's book 3, but I can't remember.

The series itself is different because it features black werecats as the main shifters, and even has thunderbird shifters as main characters in book 5.

Ilona Andrew's Kate Daniels series has a bear shifter in it. He's not a focal character, but an important secondary one.

Well there is the classic Norse folk tale of East of the sun and West of the moon (the Kay Nielsen illustrated version is beautiful). (One of my personal all time favorite stories). There are many young adult takes on the story and a good one is Ice by Sarah Beth Durst, I enjoyed it. It's worth a read :)

Thought I would put some more info. You can also read the story via the link:

The story of East o' the Sun and West o' the Moon is traced back to Norwegian writers
Peter Asbjørnsen and Jørgen Moe.
In 1837, Asbjørnsen and Moe's first collection of Norwegian Folklore appeared, entitled
Nor. In 1841 Norske Folkeeventyr was published and was widely translated in Europe
(the English translation appeared in 1859).
Like the Brothers Grimm, they became very successful because of their use of simple
language; thus they could meet the challenges offered by Norway's many dialects,
without losing the richness of oral tradition.
Separately, Asbjørnsen published Norwegian fairy tales and folk legends between
1845-1848. Moe became one of the finest Norwegian romantic poets with his Digte (a
compilation of poems published in 1850) and the following year he published a
Norwegian Children's classic: I Broden og i Tjaernet (In the Well and the Pond).
Their best-known stories are East o' the Sun and West o' the Moon and The Three Billy-
Goats Gruff.

Although Kerrelyn Sparks' books focus mainly on vamps, she does have a few shifter characters, and one of them is a werebear. Hope this helps!

Shelby Morgen has a shifter series. Northlanders 1: Way of The Wolf and Northlanders 2: Song of The Bear
Each book is a collection of 4 stories in the saga. I read them a few years ago, but I remember really liking them.

I'm reading No Mercy by S. Kenyon right now and it's good so far. I like the lead hero character Dev -- a funny, sexy were bear.

I jut came across this one (I haven't read it yet, but I have read one of the author's cat shifters - they are more on the epnr side) Bear Necessities: Halle Shifters, Book 1

right now it's only out on kindle .

That one is related to the Halle shifters series by the same author, and many of the characters from the earlier books show up in 'Bear Necessities'. Those books are good (not great) but still entertaining. Some of the romances were both sexy and sweet. I liked quite a few of the characters but felt the storylines could have been fleshed out a bit more.

If your really desperate for were bears Jewels of Ursus, Mating Stone by elyssa edwards from ellora's cave would fit the bill. It's steamy, heavy on the sex, but kinda cheesy.
