BLURB: “Win the love of the wolf with the hardest heart.”
Faced with eternal banishment to hell, Anubis, god of the underworld, has found a loophole in one of the oldest laws which will allow him to unleash his evil on an unsuspecting human world. Orion’s only hope to stop him is to accept his challenge: send a champion to win the love of the wolf with the hardest heart. It will take someone with a pure heart to soften a closed one, so faced with the threat of losing not only the werewolves, but the destruction of the human race, the gods can only do one thing — send Adam, one of their own.
Adam quickly realizes that the werewolf whose love he must win is Jed. Wounded after the loss of his wife and son, Jed promised he would never love again or be responsible for someone else’s happiness. Adam has been given a near impossible task.
Anubis is eager to see Adam fail, and unbeknown to everyone takes matters into his own hands to make sure of it. Everything happening now is part of his master plan, and finally it has come full circle.
Even if Adam succeeds and wins Jed’s heart, will that love survive when Jed discovers the whole thing was nothing more than a bet? Or when Adam does the one thing he mustn’t and falls in love himself, will he not only break Jed’s heart but completely destroy his own?
Jed stopped in awe. He’d never been one for fancy words, or expressing himself eloquently. He had used the word beautiful maybe six times in his entire life, but that was the only one that fit at that moment. Adam’s blue eyes were lit with humor and pleasure, a wide smile of recognition aimed at Jed. His slim, toned body was stronger than a woman’s, much stronger. Jed’s fingers hummed as they remembered the feel of its smooth, soft skin.
He’d experimented a little when he was younger. Never cared really whether it was a girl or a guy, as most wolves weren’t bothered, but then he’d met his wife and all bets were off. He’d never expected to look at someone in half the way he used to look at her. Like she was his whole world.
Adam extended his arm cautiously and tilted his palm upwards. Jed never remembered putting the tray down, but all of a sudden Adam was clasped tightly in his arms, crushed to Jed’s chest, and his heart that had been so battered yesterday seemed to take another direct hit.
He couldn’t speak, and he didn’t want to move. He had no name for the desperate need to have Adam as close as he could be. Adam seemed to sigh in pure contentment and for the first time in more years than he could count, Jed had to close his eyes before a tear escaped them.
Has loved books for as long as she can remember. Books were always what pocket money went on and what usually Father Christmas brought. When she ran out of her kids’ adventure stories, she would go raid her Mom’s. By the age of eight she was devouring classics like Little Women, and fell in love with love stories.
She’s still in love with them. Any size, any shape, any creature – love is love, no matter what it says on the box.
In fact if they don’t fit very neatly into any box she loves them even more!
She has a very patient husband and three wonderful children. In 2010 in search of adventure they all moved from the UK to the US and are happily settled in Florida.
In 2013 after reading love stories for so long she decided to write her own.
