Wolf Unbound Countdown!

Taking a break from revisions for Undercover to pop in and get my post up. I hope everyone can take a moment to breathe and appreciate the close of 2007. For those of you celebrating Christmas, I hope your upcoming week is a good one! I’m done with my shopping and most of my wrapping so it’s really just a matter of hanging out with my family and finishing up some work.

Speaking of work – I just realized today my fourth Cascadia Wolves book Wolf Unbound is coming out in eight days! Yep, January 1.


I’m so in love with this cover! I think Dawn Seewer did an amazing job and my Cascadia covers are all so beautiful so I’m thrilled to have another one that’s so fabulous.

I’ve loved this series. It’s the first I’ve plotted as a meta story and it’s been really fun to see where these characters have ended up as they’ve dealt with not just their mates but the werewolf mafia too.


Werewolf Enforcer Tegan Warden has been alone since the death of her mate four years ago. Until she meets Ben Stoner at a local club and she feels something she thought died inside her. Things move very quickly and she finds herself mated to a human man who’s not altogether sure he wants a forever kind of love with a woman he’s just met.

Ben realizes in short order Tegan is not only worth forever love, but a woman who’ll stand at his side without tolerating anything other than a full partnership.

In the bedroom it’s another story, as Ben has finally found a sexual submissive with a spark, and Tegan a man worthy of her submission. Together they work toward building a permanent relationship even as the specter of danger from the Pellini Group grows in the world of wolves.

All around them, the rising violence threatens the Packs and the only thing they know for certain is one another.

An excerpt after the jump!

Two large wolves sat on the ridgeline high above the group, watching and guardingβ€”Nick and Gabe, his soon-to-be brothers-in-law and Tegan’s baby sister, Tracy’s, husbands. Several Pacific Pack wolves, Tracy’s Packmates, had taken over guard duty for the afternoon and had spread through the surrounding forest.

Every once in a while he heard a howl, answered by several more in order as they checked in. As Lex didn’t look alarmed when that happened, Ben just assumed everything was status quo.

An arbor marked the space where they’d stand and the trees surrounding the area were strung with white lights that cast a soft glow on the spot. It felt magical.

The hair on the back of Ben’s neck stood up and Lex tapped his arm. Ben turned to catch sight of his woman walking down the path toward them.

Her hair was loose, beautiful strands of red blowing in the soft breeze as the deepest blue of twilight settled in. The dress she wore was the same deep green as the robe she wore for him several nights a week. Only this dress moved about her feet like the ocean as she walked. The front dipped low, the necklace he’d given her resting between her breasts and the sleeves were tight, buttoned from her wrists to her elbow.

Once she’d gotten close enough, he saw her hair had green ribbons and shiny things woven through it. She looked like a faery queen or a goddess. His red wolf.

    Hi Lauren!
    Great except – I’m looking forward to getting this book. πŸ˜‰ I also think it’s [vaguely] tricky that you’re hiding the bunny behind cuts.
