Paige Donovan is an ambitious college graduate who aspires to reach the top of the corporate ladder. She’s climbing fast when given the promotion of a lifetime at a prestigious fashion magazine in New York City. Her bright future comes to an unexpected halt after news of her father’s death. She inherits his old cabin in the Colorado Rockies, and just when she thinks her luck couldn't get any worse, she has a car accident in the mountains and awakens in the small, remote community of Black River.

Soon, she’s engulfed in the mystical world of Varulv---wolves descended from 13th century Scandinavia and blessed by Norse gods with the ability to appear human. Paige is desperate to return home, but never expects to fall for her rescuer, Riley Gray, a charming young werewolf from England who offers her an alternate future with his pack.

Now, she must choose between the career she’s always wanted and the love she’s always dreamed.

Although I'm a beta wolf, I never really wanted to kill my own father to be alpha. Trust me, I've thought about it many times when he made me angry. Now that I'm in New York, I miss pack life, and I have some ideas about what I'd do if I led my own.

Top 5 Things I'd Do If I Was Alpha Male:

  1. Initiate a recruitment program to invite humans into my pack. Some wolves really don't know what they're missing having a human mate. It's so exciting...and I'm not just talking about the sex!
  2. Open more communication between alpha males of various packs across the country to discuss the future of Varulv and possibly "coming out from behind the trees". If we're really as fearless as we claim to be, then we need to prove it and take this major step sooner or later. Why not now?
  3. Create a law to allow females to claim their mates. Maybe then Quinn will finally get a husband.
  4. Allow members to hunt without the pack. Sometimes you get hungry and want a fresh kill all to yourself. What's wrong with that?
  5. Start more programs and open more places for younger Varulv to socialize and discuss their problems. It's tough being a young wolf, especially when dealing with authority from thick-skull adults.

  1. I think you would make an excellent alpha. Your open mindedness should be met with a hearty and approving howl. Maybe wolves should take a page from the hyenas.

  2. I love the idea of using the Norse gods in the mythology of the novel. Can't wait to read this one!

  3. Thank you for participating in my tour!
