It’s full steam ahead on getting ready for Hunting Wolf, Black Mesa Wolves #3. It will be out in February! Exact date to come soon. There’ll be more news about it in the next newsletter, which will hit an inbox near you later this month. If you haven’t signed up for said newsletter, go ahead and do it–I send them out for new releases, contests, and only big news. Be the first to hear about special SALES and other cool stuff.
So, Hunting Wolf. This is Caleb and Rielle’s story. They have been such fun characters to write about! Caleb is so brash and cocky and ready to meet every and any challenge with his fists and his sometimes reckless mouth–he definitely tends to speak well before he thinks. Rielle is more reserved and holds back a great deal, and she’s much more finicky about appearances and behavior than Caleb.
As it will turn out, she’s hiding some big things from him, one super big thing in particular, and her internal struggle to set herself free will drive Caleb crazy in all the best ways. He has an uphill battle on his hands trying to convince her he’s not the graceless barbarian wolf she seems to think he is. Unfortunately for Caleb, he keeps displaying that rough side to Rielle every time their paths cross, which doesn’t help his case! It’s a good thing that somewhere deep down, she finds his unpolished maleness fascinating and attractive…when she stops long enough in her critical regard of him to realize he’s hiding some painful stuff, too. Our secrets and scars tend to make us who we present to the world, and it takes a very special person to see beneath the masks we wear in everyday life.
I’ll show off the cover when it’s done. My fabulous cover artist will be working on it at the end of this month, so I’ll do a reveal hopefully in early February. But here are my inspirations for Caleb and Rielle, just so you can get a picture of them in your head now. Happy looking!
