There are numerous characters but the male lead is a Red Wolf Alpha Royal Werewolf called Leidolf Wildhaven and the female lead with Cassie Roux (who is also a Red Wolf).

Cassie, we find out, has been playing a dangerous game living among regular wolf packs and using her day job as a Wolf Biologist to help them out.  She doesn’t belong to a Werewolf Pack and almost upon meeting her Leidolf wants her as his mate and co-leader of the pack he won from a corrupt werewolf.  Leidolf has several challenges: security and stability in the pack challenged by various rogue wolves who are up to no good, a possible competition for Cassie’s interests from a male were parent looking to find a mother to his children, and Cassie herself.

Oh, Cassie.  She’s Alpha female but knows when to fold when Leidolf outwits her and gives her himself not just as leader of the pack but as a partner in life.  This is the turning point that Cassie is looking for in a mate.  She doesn’t just want to be a convenient fit she wants a partner.  However, to get there involves several complex sub-plots.  The Arc is Cassie and Leidolf cementing their relationship.  Cassie has been alone for so long and her attraction to Leidolf is so great that when she’s tranquilized by wolf hunters she dreams he’s Poseideon, God of the Seas after running into him in a lake scenario.  There’s a strong attraction that runs the plot and they meet their challenges together sometimes whether they acted as a unit or not.  Cassie does try to run out on him after he helps her recover but cannot deny her feelings for Leidolf and in the end there is happily ever after.

It’s a well written look at Werewolves and pack hierarchy.  Definitely worth a read and certainly intriguing enough to look up Terry Spear, write her an email and add her books to my list of what to read during a hurricane… BTW the hurricane is here but the authorities are calling it a tropical storm so we should be ok today – let’s see what it does overnight and what tomorrow brings.

  Little fact about Terry in her bio: she’s a retired lieutenant colonel  in the U.S. Army Reserves and has an MBA from Monmouth University and now resides in the heart of Texas.

Remember the lizard

I’ve done it!

I eat organic food.  I exercise according to Dr. Hewitt’s exercise prescription plan developed specifically for me.

I’m following the nutritional plan having bought a bunch of small appliances (steamer, blender etc.) and use them every 2nd day.

I have less stress in my life which is why I chose Fifth Avenue Collection as my current full time job.

I have time to finish my MBA with Walden University and read/write more than before.  I have a pitch before an Editor September 17th in Halifax through Romance Writers of America Atlantic Chapter.

SO, what’s the glitch in this program?  Why do I need to remember the lizard?

That’s right.  I said lizard.  See pic below.

I need to remember this guy as he’s one of my anchors from Canyon Ranch, the Wellness Spa I visited in July desperate for heat and sunshine I made the booking at the end of May.  I had no idea that the program would be all encompassing.  That change required work and that this daily work is draining me.  Only I can help myself.   Only I can make the decisions needed to effect change in my life.  It’s been so easy living in Dad’s house and letting my grief

overwhelm me in insidious ways.  To continue the change I now know I need to make this house my own.  I need to own up to my decisions about my life and take action.  No matter how tired I get I also need to remind myself that I have to replenish the energy I put out.  I need to remember the lizard and conserve my energy when needed so I have the energy to deal with the unknowns life can dish out.  Like the flood from Canadian Springs.  Didn’t see that one coming.  LOL.
