Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. I love the crisp air, the vibrant colors of the leaves as they turn, the harvest of corn and pumpkins, and the first hot chocolate after the summer.
It’s also a time of new beginnings. Kids are back at school and routines get back to normal after summer vacation. All of our favorite television shows come back on after the summer hiatus—I’m really looking forward to the second season of Lucifer. We all try to fit back into our normal routines, often having to make adjustments for new activities or schedules.
Anything seems possible in the fall. There’s a vitality, a sense of urgency that seems to permeate everything. At least that’s how it feels to me. I love to walk and kick the leaves covering the ground. (I know I’m a big kid and I don’t care.)
More so than New Year’s I feel like fall is a good time to make changes, to try something new, to take a chance on a new activity. I think it’s because the leaves are dying and the trees and plants around me are changing. It’s all part of the circle of life, reminding me that change is inevitable. It’s up to me to embrace it.
And like me, the characters I write must also deal with change. Neither Sage or Rina know just how much their lives are about to change when they meet…
Wolf in his Heart
He’s a wolf where it counts—in his heart and in her bed.
Salvation Pack, Book 7
Exiled from her wolf pack for rejecting her parents’ choice for a mate, Rina Matheson has been on her own for over a year. Now she’s running for her life from a man who knows what she is and is obsessed with hunting her down.
Sage Gallagher—organic farmer, half-breed werewolf, and member of the Salvation Pack—finds more than a lost hiker while camping in the Great Smoky Mountains. So much more. Instant attraction slams through him with knee-buckling power the minute he sees Rina. His first instinct is to get her home where he and his pack can protect her.
Rina doesn’t trust easily. Especially not half-breeds, who she was raised to consider abominations. But Sage’s quiet strength calls to her lonely soul, and amazingly enough, her wolf responds. As he slowly works his way past her guard, she is soon in danger of losing her heart—even as danger draws closer to taking her life.
