Lions and tigers and bears oh my!!!! Well not really, but you will meet some awesome wolves, cougars and a bobcat… Did I mention wolves?
I can’t even tell you how I got the idea of shifters. Let alone a female shifter. I started writing Jilly and Dylan’s story and these characters just took over. As their story evolved, I fell in love with the secondary characters and immediately knew that they each had to have stories of their own. I don’t want to give away spoilers but there were some characters in my books that I absolutely hated and knew that they were going to have a painful death because as we know karma is a bitch and don’t mess with an author. LOL!! But, damn if some of those villains don’t grab a chunk of your heart and worm their way in.
I took chunks of my personal experiences and incorporated them into these stories. Obviously, I’m not a shifter. Or am I? But I tend to be a klutz so the crappie flop actually happened and I have a very quirky cat named Ollie whom brings many live chipmunks into my house which causes no end to the chaos.
I can’t pick a favorite couple in this series. Each of these couples holds a special place in my heart and that’s what I love about writing a series. It allows me to revisit old friends and see how they are doing. I’m beyond excited that we were able to combine all four of these stories into one print book to allow you all to read them straight through.
I hope you enjoy reading the stories as much as I enjoyed creating them.
Marcus bowed his head. “I apologize for Becca’s action. She won’t bother you again. You have my word.” He looked toward Sable and took a small step. The wolf whined and curled herself into a tighter ball. Marcus hesitated and shook his head. For a moment he slumped, mixed emotions crossed his face, then he took a deep breath and squared his shoulders. “I’m truly sorry.” He turned and walked proudly out the door. “Man, is he cute,” Carrie uttered, her hand on her chest. “Isn’t he the guy that protects the wolves north of here?” Jimmy stepped forward. “Don’t even think it, young lady.” “He’s way too old for you,” Dylan and Jilly said simultaneously. Carrie laughed. “Cool it you guys. I just said the guy was hot. Don’t have a cow.” She put her hands on her hips. “I’m not a baby.” Jimmy watched the door. “What was that all about?” Dylan shook his head. “I have no idea but, girls, I want to personally apologize for all mankind if that’s the way you feel after a man gives you the once over.” He shook his body and brushed his hands down the front of his shirt. “I feel unclean.” Jilly walked over and gave his face a slight pat, lightly tweaking his dimple. “Relax, big boy. It’s me she was trying to get a rise out of, although you are pretty darn cute.” she winked. “Thanks, darlin’.” He gave her a quick peck on the lips. “I have something for you,” he whispered and reached into the front pocket of his jeans. “Turn around.” He gently pushed on her shoulder to turn her back to his front. He lifted her hair as he slipped the chain around her neck and fastened the clasp in back. “I know it can’t replace your friend, but I thought it would be a nice memory of her.” Jilly fingered the small charm and turned to face Dylan. “Thank you so much, Dylan.” Tears slipped down her cheeks and she swallowed the lump in her throat. The replica was of a mother bear with a small cub sitting beside her. “I’ll treasure it.” She reached up and wrapped her arms around his neck, her tears falling on the bare skin of his neck. Dylan gently rubbed her back. “And I’ll treasure you darlin’.”
