Mate of Her Heart Available for Pre-Order
This past summer, while I tried to avoid sunburn and learned how to clam dig, a scene for a story kept coming to mind. At the time, I was editing Loving Lachlyn and Every Dawn Forever, planning a marketing blitz, setting up a Facebook Street Team, and generally just super busy so I tried to shove the scene to the back of my brain for another, less busy time. But it persisted. I couldn’t shake the idea of a human man going against a group of male werewolves to protect the she-wolf that he loves. So often, I’ve read stories of mixed supernatural relationships (and have written my share of them) where the supernatural creature in the story is the guy and the human is the girl. I thought, “what if I switched them? what if the guy was the human and the girl was the wolf?” Which is where the storyline for the first of my new series, Mate of Her Heart, comes from. In this book, she-wolf Eveny is in love with a human male named Luke, but according to pack law, it’s forbidden for them to be together. This situation begged the question…what would you do for love? If being with the only person you’ve ever loved meant you would lose your family, could you do it?
I wrote this 33,000 word novella in three weeks. It’s one of the fastest books I’ve ever written, because the story just flowed and I couldn’t stop myself from writing. I love this story and the characters that are quickly endearing themselves to me. This series is different from The Wolf’s Mate – the laws that apply to wolves are different in Wilde Creek – and I hope that you enjoy it! The book was edited by the fabulous Alexis Arendt at Word Vagabond. The gorgeous cover was done by the absurdly talented Ramona Lockwood of Romance Book Cover Designs. And I wouldn’t be anywhere without the help of my fab beta-reader and friend, Amanda Pederick, and the unending support of my Wild Shifter Babes Street Team.
I’m really pleased to announce that the book is available for pre-order from Amazon, Apple iBookstore, and Barnes & Noble! You can pre-order it now for $1.99. The release date is Monday, December 9.
Beginning Wednesday, December 11, I’ll be hosting a giveaway to celebrate the book’s new release, giving away gift cards, some fabulous handmade soaps, some gorgeous handmade bracelets, ebooks, and other swag, so stay tuned to the blog! Details for the new book are below as well as pre-order links.
Werewolf Eveny Moore is coming into her first heat at the age of twenty-five. Bucking tradition, she chooses to go through her first heat alone instead of choosing an unmated male from her pack. There is only one male that she wants in her bed and her life: her best friend, Luke Elrich. But Luke is human and doesn’t understand the consequences of her heat-cycle, so she hides out in a safehouse, planning to ride out the cycle alone and then ask Luke to be her mate.
Luke has loved Eveny forever, but something is going on between them. He’s afraid he’s losing her forever, until she promises to talk to him after her heat-cycle is over. He overhears her brother, the pack alpha, ask another wolf to go to Eveny and take her through the heat-cycle. What her brother doesn’t know is that the male plans to invite some of his friends along. And Eveny is alone in a remote cabin, unprotected. Luke will do anything to keep her safe, even if it means going up against four wolves.
This story contains a meddling brother, a human fighting a pack of male wolves for the only woman he’s ever loved, a female who thought she had a good plan, and bone-melting, skin-tingling hot sex between a male and a female who have loved each other forever.
