First and foremost, let me take a moment to wish all of you a most amazing 2013. I hope that all of you and your families enjoy a prosperous, safe, and happy New Year!
2012 was amazing. I published ten books last year, which I never dreamed would happen when I first published A Curve of Claw in November of 2011. I started off with only my beta-reader, but I finished the year with friends, readers, editors, cover designers, and a fan base that makes me grin like crazy. Thank you for your support in 2012 and for your wonderful, amazing comments, reviews, and encouragement.
I had planned to reveal Bo’s cover on the blog ahead of the publishing date, but things got crazy over the weekend and I ran out of time. So it’s my pleasure to let you know that the fifth book in The Wolf’s Mate series is NOW AVAILABLE on Amazon, Smashwords, and Barnes & Noble for 1.99. That’s right, my sweet Nook peeps, I’m finally publishing directly to Nook! *clapping wildly* No more waiting weeks and weeks, now you can enjoy my stuff at the same time as Amazon and Smashwords folks do. So…woohoo! (And thanks for your patience).
The Wolf’s Mate Book Five: Bo & Reika
She’s on the run for her life …
As a child, she-wolf healer Reika Snow was promised as a mate to three were-lynxes to prevent a war between her pack and the lynx clan. Her freedom is coming to an end as her twenty-third birthday arrives. With her bleak future as the subjugated bride of the three males looms near, she does the only thing she can think of … she runs. With the lynxes hot on her tail, the only thing she can do is pray she can find safety, somewhere.
He’s not going to let her get far …
Bo Elliot, highly ranked member of the Tressel wolf pack, rescues a she-wolf from the claws of three were-lynxes as they attempt to capture her. When she awakens, he’s surprised to find himself staring into the beautiful blue eyes of his truemate. With his bum leg, Bo doesn’t want to tie Reika down to a wounded male like himself by acknowledging that they’re mates, but he vows to set her free from the lynxes and give her back her life. It will take every trick in Bo’s book to keep Reika from taking off on her own in a misguided attempt to spare him from getting tangled up in the hot mess of her life, but Bo will do anything for his truemate, even if it means walking away once she’s free.
This book contains a scarred wolf with a heart of gold, a she-wolf healer who wants to protect her truemate at any cost, and a wolf-on-lynx battle that will determine where Reika spends the rest of her life. Readers should expect possessive werewolves, passionate sex, neck biting, and the kind of horniness that only the full moon can bring.
Bo’s book wouldn’t have happened without the support of my beta-reader, Jacq McNeill, who has become my best friend in such a short amount of time. And also my editor extraordinaire, Jennifer Moorman, who jumped right into the middle of The Wolf’s Mate series without blinking an eye and I’m so thankful for her help. If you’re in need of an editor, you can find her website here or on the permanent link on the right side of the blog. The cover is courtesy of the amazingly talented Ramona of Romance Book Cover Designs by Ramona. If you’re in need of a cover, you can find her blog here or click the permanent to the right. It’s such hard work *wink* looking at stock images to find just the right sexy man to be on the cover, and I always have a blast checking out the sexy pics in the name of “research” with her!
