The Ashland Pride Series

Ashland Pride series is a spin-off series based on characters from the third story in the Wolf’s Mate series – The Wolf’s Mate book Callie & The Cats. After Callie’s book was published, the response from fans wanting to know more about the mountain lion pride was overwhelming and the series was born.

SS Amazon CoverSeducing Samantha (Book One) – February 2013

Elementary school music teacher Samantha Thomas moved to Ashland to start her life over. What she didn’t expect was for her ex-husband to follow her to Ashland to take over the vacant principal job at her school. After some clever plotting by one of her students, she meets the gorgeous Grant Fallon and accepts a date with him. On the way home, her car gets stuck and she finds herself face to face with another gorgeous man asking her for a date – Grant’s brother, Aaron. How will Sam decide between Grant and Aaron, when both men fill her with
desire?

Mountain lions Grant and Aaron Fallon grew up believing that love was not meant for their kind. When their pride left their former home in
Pennsylvania and settled in Ashland, Indiana, they were suddenly able to live their lives however they wanted, without the threat of the female lions holding them back. When they realize that they both want Samantha, they decide to follow their instincts and share her. Can two brothers share a mate? Will Samantha want to be shared?

This book contains m/f/m interaction between two mountain lion males who won’t let anyone harm their mate and a woman with a heavy heart. Expect plenty of hot sex, a little danger, handcuffs, shifting, and liberal use of the word ‘mine’.

Loving Lachlyn (Book Two) – August 2013Cover Loving Lachlyn

For many years, mountain lion Alek Fallon believed he was fated to be alone forever.  But after meeting Lachlyn, he knows that he’s found his mate in the sweet she-bear and opens his home to her and her second mate, were-bear Jericho.  Lachlyn is a shifting dud and cannot transform into her bear self.  When Jericho’s father tries to force her into her bear form using a cattle prod, she nearly dies.  Jericho’s father swears to find them, and now Alek, Jericho, and the lion pride are working together to keep everyone safe.  When the mountain lions’ enemy interferes, it’s not only Lachlyn’s life that is on the line, but all of theirs.

This book contains plenty of m/f/m loving, two men who will love their woman to the best of their ability, interfering female lions who don’t know when to give up, and a camper used as a honeymoon suite.  Be prepared for growling, neck biting, ceremonial marking, and a lot of sweethearted male mountain lions who just want to find love.

Marking Melody-highresMarking Melody (Book Three) – January 2014

All were-mountain-lion Melody Marx ever wanted was to find her mate and start a family.  After being rescued from her own people by two mountain lions, she knows that she’s found not just one mate, but two.  She goes with them to their old home in Pennsylvania, but finds an even chillier reception than she found in Ashland.

Tristan and Micah Harrison would do anything to keep Melody safe, even if it means walking away from the Ashland Pride and their own family forever.  When problems arise in their hometown of King, Pennsylvania, it turns out that the males aren’t the only ones who don’t approve of their mating.

Be prepared for two males with plans to hold onto their mate forever, a female searching for a place to call home, and an enemy who is always looking for new ways to wreak havoc in the males’ lives.  This book contains sweet males, a feisty female, and m/f/m loving.

Redeeming-Rue-highresRedeeming Rue (Book 4) – October 2014

As an albino black panther banished by her people, Veruka Jennings knows if her clan discovers she had a child, it would mean death for them both.  Labeled an abomination and forbidden from having cubs, she’s spent the better part of her life as an outcast, believing she is worthless because of the color of her fur.  After secretly overhearing traveling clan members discuss a bonding ceremony in Indiana, she decides to spy on the proceedings for one last look at the people who treated her like trash.

When James and John Fallon investigate a shadowy figure in the woods during a bonding ceremony, they do not expect to find the woman they are meant to share.  But instead of enjoying their mating, they are embroiled in a clan war as they fight to protect Veruka and her son, who have come to mean everything to them.  If they can protect her, will they be able to keep her?  Or will Rue believe she’s not worthy of their love and disappear from their lives forever?

Warning:  This book contains one spunky heroine who will do anything to keep her son safe, two males who aren’t about to let the slippery female get away, and a ticked off clan of panthers who want bloody revenge for their broken laws.  Expect plenty of growls and snarled curses, love bites, ceremonial mating, and scorching m/f/m loving that only happens when two mountain lions finally find the woman of their dreams.  Contains m/f/m interaction.

Saving Scarlett-highres

Saving Scarlett (Book 5) – April 2015

Scarlett Jamison, the daughter of a powerful alpha wolf, knows her freedom is slowly slipping away. As a Breeding Queen, her hereditary destiny is to be given away to a male of her father’s choosing. She’ll have no say in the choice of her mate; her only duty will be to give her future mate as many pups as he wants. What her father doesn’t know, though, is that Scarlett took her best friend Melody’s wedding as an opportunity to spend the night with two amazing male mountain lions. They rocked her world and stole her heart, and then she had to leave them behind and cut all contact. Even though her heart protests that Wesley and Ray Fiero are her truemates, she has no choice but to obey her father…until a certain quirk in her DNA changes everything.

Ray and Wesley won’t give up on Scarlett. One night was not nearly enough for them. Finding Scarlett turns out to be easy. Taking her back to Ashland to live happily ever after? Now, that’s going to be dangerous. Ray and Wesley are willing to go to any length to protect Scarlett’s right to choose them no matter the cost, but when an innocent life is on the line, will the payment for her disobedience be blood?

This book contains one female who has her choices taken from her, two males determined to make her theirs, and a pride willing to help. Expect plenty of m/f/m interaction, abundant use of the word ‘mine,’ and inappropriate use of a horse statue.

Chasing Cristabel (Book 6) June 2016

Lioness Cristabel Hardison would do just about anything to avoid going home to Kentucky, where her father, the king of their pride, wants to mate her to a male of his choosing. When her roommate needs to vacate his condo, she takes her best friend, Lily, up on her offer to let her stay in Ashland until she can find another job and a new place to live.

Cousins Dylan, Chase, and Hunter Hall aren’t sure they’ll ever find a mate to share. Just because other lions have found their mates doesn’t mean that every male is meant to. Then one day at the town diner, they scent their mate, except no one knows who she is, and they only know that she smells like sunshine and tall grass. Their desire to find their mate takes over their lives and nothing – not even a pesky new waitress at Kickers Bar – is going to stop them from figuring out who their mate is and loving her forever.

When Cris meets her mates, sparks fly fast, and she finds herself at the center of their world. Her father isn’t happy, and when he brings an uninvited guest to crash her happiness, her own future may not be the only thing on the line.   This book contains three males who want to hold on to their lioness forever, a female with some unresolved family issues, a house full of lions who will protect their own, and enough heat to melt the snow. Contains m/f/m/m interaction

    Hello, I just wanted to say that I read the first book in Ashland Pride Samantha. I was surprised that Alek wasn’t first but instead his uncles. I like that this series seems to be a ménage/triad series with different shifts/human, Of course the childrens’ shift is still TBD. I cannot wait till Alek’s book is released. Just thinking how he wants to be loved is great. Great job on your writing and creative thinking. 😉

    • rebutler says:

      Hi Jennifer! I wasn’t ready for Alek’s book when I wrote the first one, which is why I picked the uncles. Of course that didn’t stop Alek from hounding me, LOL! I’m glad that you’ve enjoyed the series and I hope that you enjoy Alek’s book when it comes out. All the best, RE

  • Melissa says:

    I just have to say that I LOVE all of your books and think that it is amazing that you respond to all your readers. I mean you write so many books and have soooooo much on your plate but you still take the time to sit down and respond to your readers. I have yet to find another author that does this. I also like that I can read what other people send you so that I don’t ask you some of the same questions because I know that might get old fast. You are an amazing writer and it just seems like you would be someone that takes the time to actually care. Thank you for that and I wish more writers would do what you do. Oh and thank you for being a writer!!

    • rebutler says:

      Melissa, thank you so much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts! Because you (and others) take the time to write to me, I want to take the time to write back. Sometimes I’m not as quick as I’d like to be with responses but I always do my best to get back to everyone. Without the support of amazing readers like yourself, I don’t know where I would be. I love the openness of the website so you can find things for yourself, but I’m always happy to respond to each question and I never get tired of talking about the series and characters. 🙂 Thank you so much, you really made my day! Hugs, RE

  • Susan says:

    We’ll am I greedy or what just finished marking melody loved it thank you for giving jilly back to her father and brother but now after reading the teaser about John and James story cannt wait for this to be released so keep the stories coming while I wait I might have to read some of your other great series thank you for the pleasure of your story writing and sharing you beautiful characters

    • Farah says:

      Hi, I love your books but unfortunately the Ashland Pride Serie is not on Kobo. Can you do something about it? Thanks
      (I love Callie and the cats 😉 )

      • Coby says:

        Hi Farah: Hopefully by the time you read this you will have bought and downloaded her first two books from the Ashland Pride series. At this time the 3rd, Marking Melody is not YET available at Kobo. Hopefully soon

        • rebutler says:

          Hi Coby! I don’t know that it will be on Kobo. At the moment, only Lachlyn’s book is up…Samantha’s was taken down months ago during their sweep of indie books. It is for sure available on smashwords.com, though! Thanks for your help, I appreciate you stepping in with information. All the best, RE

      • rebutler says:

        Hi Farah! I wish I could do something about it, but Kobo removed that series from their website. I don’t know why they did, except it happened several months ago during their indecency sweep. Unfortunately it is out of my hands. You can, though, purchase books for your kobo reader through Smashwords.com for the same low prices. I’m really sorry that it happened and it’s affected readers.

    • rebutler says:

      Hi Mercedes! It is out on B&N now. Sorry for the delay in answering, thank you so much for stopping by! Best, RE

I know you write a ton of different series but, I just really love this series! I also love that it all started with Eryx, Ethan and Callow’ s story from your Wolf series. You’re such a wonderful author I can suck your readers right into the world’s you’ve created. I’ve always wanted and dreamed of being an author and, you’re one of the very limited few who’ve inspired me to to really think long and hard about actually taking the steps to write, about things that are…long and hard, obviously!! Much love and appreciation to you!

    • rebutler says:

      Hi Tammy! I’m so glad that you enjoyed Melody’s book! I hope to have Rue’s book out later this year, maybe in the fall. You’re so sweet, I really appreciate your wonderful comments. I’m laughing at your long and hard comment. But seriously, if you’re interested in becoming a writer, then I encourage you to go for it! I wish I hadn’t waited as long as I did, but I’m so glad I decided to publish. It’s been a wonderful journey and I get to chat with great people like yourself. Take care! Hugs, RE

    I have been enjoying your ashland pride books, love the characters and the stong family bonds. I’m currently reading Melodys book. Will their be a story for Jilly?

    • rebutler says:

      Hi Amanda! I’m glad that you’re enjoying Melody’s book! Yes, Jilly will get a book, but not until the three years have passed in the storyline when it’s time for her and her panthers to get married. Before her book, the other lions will be getting their books, but she’ll be popping up in books here and there so we don’t forget her. 🙂

  • Amanda says:

    Lol nevermind, patients has not always been my strong suit. 😀

  • sherri says:

    Love this series and callie and the cats is my all time favorite! When is the next one coming? And what about alec?

    • rebutler says:

      Hi Sherri! The next book should be out in the fall. It will be James & John’s story. Alek already has a book – Loving Lachlyn – which is the 2nd in the series. I love Callie & her boys, too! Best, RE

  • Gemma says:

    Just been reccommended your books by a friend and after ready the wilde creek books and the first of the wolfs mate series i went out and bought all of them haha 🙂 cant wait to see more come out

    • rebutler says:

      That’s so neat, Gemma! I’m glad your friend steered you my direction and you’ve enjoyed my books! All the best, RE

  • Gemma says:

    And that comment was left so early because its midday over here in England lol 🙂

  • kelly says:

    When will redeeming rue be available?

    • rebutler says:

      Hi Kelly! I’m currently about midway through writing Rue’s book. I hope it will be out in the fall, but I’m not certain about the timing at the moment. Once it hits the editing stage, I’ll be able to plan the release and will share that information right away. 🙂

  • I am re-re-reading all of your books again, after your release of Every Sunset Forever got me hooked once again on your writings worlds, I await your next book in eager anticipation. Sadly I an going to have to buy a new e-reader as I have worn out the page turning button on my current one, it should have a longer than 4 year shelf life, but when I think about the amount of books I have read and re-read on it, it seems worth it.
    Thanks for your great writing. 🙂

  • Cathy Sprouse says:

    I just got Redeeming Rue and see where Jolly has her mates. Is there a story that maybe I missed. Could you let me know. I love all of your books and have read love all of them. Please keep them coming. I’m disabled and read to get through the day. Thanks to authors like you I can be forget I’m not 100%. THANK YOU.

    • rebutler says:

      Hi Cathy! Jilly’s story begins in Book 3 – Marking Melody – but she and her mates haven’t had their own story yet – that will happen later on. 🙂

  • Lee says:

    I just got Redeeming Rue and it was even better than i hoped it would be. so looking forward to Saving Scarlett!!

    • rebutler says:

      Aw, Lee, thank you so much! I’m so glad that you enjoyed the book. I’m looking forward to seeing where Scarlett’s story takes Ray and Wes, too! 🙂

  • Alice Addie says:

    Alice Addie October 31, 2014: I love all of your books and get them as fast as I can . Been reading the Ashland pride series over again so I can catch what I missed the 1st time before reading the new one . Redeeming Rue was as good as I knew it would be. How long until Saving Scarlett comes out. And have to know who the new brothers mate will be . Is it a relative of Scarlett,s ? Thanks for all the good reading. Wishing you all the best. Happy Halloween.

    • rebutler says:

      Hi Alice! I’m thrilled to hear you enjoyed Rue’s story! I’m very excited for Saving Scarlett. I don’t know at the moment when it will be published, but I would expect either late spring or early summer. I’ll know more as I get my schedule for next year planned. I haven’t decided anyone else’s mates, yet, lol. Thank you so much for taking the time to write and you’re sweet, kind, amazing compliments! Hugs, RE

  • Kaylen Maxton says:

    Any news on the release date of Saving Scarlett???? Cannot wait!!!!

    • ladyxiane says:

      I can’t wait either, I hope it’s soon.

    • rebutler says:

      Hi Kaylen! I’m writing Scarlett’s book right now, so I don’t have a publication date in mind yet, but it will be this spring. As soon as I know for sure, I will post the details on the website. I’m glad to hear you’re excited about her story – me too! Best, RE

  • Jasmine says:

    Hi! I’m a little confused about who’s who in this series( that’s what I get for reading multiple books at the same time) is there any way that we could get a list of the mates and their corresponding books?

    • rebutler says:

      Hi Jasmine, it is on my list to add a character reference list on the blog. I haven’t had time to coordinate with my designer yet, though. Thanks for letting me know what you’d like to see! All the best, RE

    • Claudia says:

      you know Jasmine, Im making some sort of family tree along with reading the books… its a little helping keep track of all brothers, uncles, cousins ;-D I am a freak of a genealogist 😉

  • samantha whitehead says:

    Hi I read the wolf’s mate series and was totally hooked I then followed on with the ashland pride books I love them you have a way with writing that just draws you in I am now sitting not so patently for book five lol.

    • rebutler says:

      Hi Samantha! I’m so glad you found the wolf’s mate and ashland pride books! I’m working on Scarlett’s story now and it will be available April 11th so you don’t have to wait too long! All the best, RE

  • Judylee says:

    MARKING MELODY is my favourite in this series. I’m a fourth of the way through it. This is the third time I’ve read it since it became available. I guess it’s time to move on to REDEMING RUE so I can get to SAVING SCARLETT. Funny…while reading MARKING MELODY last night, I came across the telephone conversation Melody was having with Scarlett and I thought to myself how great it would be for Scarlett to get her own book. I must be psychic! Thank you so very much R E for sharing your talents. I know I’ve said in the past in emails to you that you set the standard for were-creatures and I tell other authors that, too. YOU are THAT good!!!

    • rebutler says:

      Hi Judylee! I’m so glad that you’ve enjoyed Melody’s story so much! I knew when I introduced Scarlett in Melody’s story that she would get her own book eventually and I’m really thrilled that it’s coming out on Saturday! Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts, you made my day! Hugs, RE

  • Kelly says:

    I was wondering when Chasing Cristabel and Every Blissful Moment are coming out? i really love all your books that I’ve read! I’ve only read the Wiccan-Were-Bear series, Ashland Pride series, and the Hyena Heat series but am looking forward to reading the others. Keep up the awesome work!!!

    • rebutler says:

      Hi Kelly! I don’t think Cristabel’s story will be out until 2016, but Every Blissful Moment will be out on the 20th of this month, so just a few days away! I hope you enjoy Bliss’s story when it comes out! Thank you so much for stopping by! Best, RE

  • joanne mackin says:

    can’t wait for Hunter, Chases and Dylans mate to appear. Hyena maybe? I know you’ll find them the perfect mate. Great stories that I can read again and again. Thank you.

    • rebutler says:

      Aw! I really like their characters, too. They’ll be the first set of three guys to have a mate in that series, I’m looking forward to seeing what will happen with them! I won’t spoil the fun by telling you what kind of mate they end up with, lol, but I really appreciate your sweet words! Thank you so much for stopping by! Hugs, RE

  • WhoLockian says:

    Just finished rereading Saving Scarlett, and I NEEDS Chasing Cristobel. All the lions are so sweet and and totally satisfying my HEA fix. 2016 NOW lol.

    • rebutler says:

      Aw, I’m so glad you enjoyed Scarlett’s story! I do have Cristabel’s book on my list for early 2016, so keep your fingers crossed that my muse cooperates! Thanks for stopping by! Hugs, RE

  • Rosie Lawton says:

    Was just wondering when wkyed fate and jillys story will be coming into the series , would love to hear more about the panther society and how silly is adapting to being emotionally unblocked !! Really have been enjoying your books, best wishes to you and your muse!!

  • MTRomano says:

    Love these books, When will Book 6 be released on amazon? Thank you for the thrills.

    • rebutler says:

      Hi MT! I don’t anticipate book 6 in the Ashland Pride series coming out until 2016. I don’t have a date in mind yet, but would like to see it out in the summer. Thanks for stopping by! Best, RE

  • Anny says:

    When do you think you’ll come out with Jilly’s story? Will it come out sometime in 2016? I love your Ashland Pride series!

    • rebutler says:

      Hi Anny! I’m so glad you enjoy the Ashland Pride series! The next book will be for the three cousins, Chase, Dylan and Hunter, and will be out in 2016. I am not sure if Jilly’s will make the cut this coming year or not, but if not then it will definitely be in 2017. I’m very excited about her story, too! Thank you so much for stopping by!

  • Heart says:

    All of the books have such sweet mates and protective ones. Anticipating the next book 🙂

    • rebutler says:

      Thank you! I’m looking forward to writing about the three cousins this year – Hunter, Chase & Dylan – and their mate. They’re super sweet fellows, I love them all! Thanks for stopping by, RE

  • Alicia Garza says:

    I love your books. I wish more authors were as fulfilling. Thank you for bringing enjoyment into our lives

    • Judylee says:

      Alicia I totally agree with you. Isn’t she terrific? It’s not just her writing that’s so “fulfilling”. The fact that she takes time to read AND respond to each of us is unique and awesome. Thanks R E!

      • rebutler says:

        Oh, you’re going to make me blush! LOL I’m so thankful for you taking the time to write. Sometimes I’m not too fast to get in touch but I try to answer every comment, because they mean so much to me! Hugs, RE

    • rebutler says:

      Thank you for the very sweet comment, Alicia! I really appreciate hearing from readers, thank you!! RE

  • Claudia says:

    Dear RE, I loooooooove reading your books. I finished the Wolfs Mate series and when I read Callie & the Cats I thought how great it would to read more about them in Ashland and then found there is a whole spin off series already out there! Terriffic! I bought all books and am reading book 3 now. Like the others I want to thank you for sharing this world with us and I cant wait for book 6, as I love the three cousins!!!

    • rebutler says:

      Thank you Claudia! I’m so glad you enjoyed the Wolf’s Mate series and are now enjoying Ashland! I’m looking forward to seeing the cousins find their mate, too! All the best, RE

  • Brenda Swain says:

    I really am enjoying your books and am delighted there is a continuation in the works. I just finished were-zoo and wondered if there were more books coming?

    • rebutler says:

      Hi Brenda! I’m so glad to hear that you enjoyed Zane’s story. I’m planning to have more stories out later this year in the series.

    • rebutler says:

      Hi Crystal! I’m so glad to hear that you enjoyed Scarlett’s story! I’m working on Chasing Cristabel right now! Yes, I do have plans to write stories for Scarlett’s brothers, but not for a while. I’m trying to finish up some current series before I go getting into new ones. So they’ll have to wait a while, lol. Thank you for the compliments! Hugs, RE

  • Erica McClinsey says:

    Hello. I was wondering when you plan on writing and releasing Chasing Cristabel? I have all of your books. Thank you for everything. My life is hard and your stories help me to escape all of the stuff i put up with. So thank you once again.

    • rebutler says:

My next book release will be October, and will be the 12th Wiccan Were Bear book, A Muse for Mishka. I’m in a halloween themed box set that will be out 10/25, and hope to have some more stories in the Norlanian Brides series as well, and two more books in the Arctic Shifters series.

      For now, Denise, the only stories on Kindle Unlimited will be the Mates series. I’m glad you were able to get Every Sunset Forever for free. Don’t forget that the first two books in my Wiccan-Were-Bear series are free (A Curve of Claw & A Flash of Fang), and also the book that started the Norlanian Brides series is free (The Gigolo’s Bride)!.

  • Anny says:

    Hi, I was just wondering when Jilly’s book will come out? I love watching her relationship with Fate and Wyked but I really want to read her story. It’s hard waiting for it with only the snippets that you’ve shown in the other books. Please release her book soon! Thanks!

    • rebutler says:

      Hi Anny! I actually started working on Jilly’s story this weekend. I hope to have it out in the spring, but I don’t have a firm date yet on when it will be out. I’m very excited for her story, though, and am looking forward to writing it! Thanks for stopping by! Best, RE

  • Rhoda Siller says:

    Can’t wait for Jilly’s book. Do you have a firm publish date yet?

    • rebutler says:

      AW. 🙂 I love Jilly too. No, not yet. I’m currently working on the next two zoo books, next two Norlanian bride books, the final wiccan book, and the next Wilde Creek. After these books are finished, then I’ll be working on the last hyena book as well as Jilly’s story. I’ll be posting updates on facebook as well as in my reader group, if you haven’t joined yet!

  • Paris says:

    Will Henry and Dom get a book?

    • rebutler says:

      Hi Paris! Yes! Henry & Dom’s story will be after Jilly. It most likely won’t be this year, but 2018 for sure. I’m very excited for the next few books in the series! 🙂

  • Anny says:

    Will Jilly’s book come out this year (2017) or will we have to wait until 2018 because it’s killing me to wait!

    • rebutler says:

      Hi Anny! I’m very hopeful to have Jilly’s book out this year. I’m finishing up Wilde Creek 7 and then I’ll be free to start working on other things, including Jilly’s book! 🙂 I’m excited for her story, too!

  • Will there be a book for Holden and Jackson?

    • rebutler says:

      Hello! I’m fairly certain that Holden & Jackson will be getting a story, but I haven’t decided just *when* yet. The next one out in this series is Jilly’s story, and then I’ll have to see where the muse takes me! 🙂

  • Ann says:

    Will this series ever be available in paperback?
