As of this morning, we were six DAYS under a driving ban in balmy (hah! I can’t even say that with a straight face anymore ;D) Buffalo, NY…but this afternoon, BLESSEDLY, the ban was lifted, and we drove immediately to our grocery store. And, in celebration of completing A Wolf for the Holidays (and, you know, surviving a major snowstorm), I bought that pint of coconut milk ice cream. ♥
So A Wolf for the Holidays is released today! What began as a short story evolved into a novella, because I loved the characters too much to part with them so quickly! This is the story of Mandy, whose girlfriend sucks…but all of her problems seem minor when she wakes up one evening to a gorgeous woman stealing jeans from her dresser…a woman who swears she’s a werewolf.
I filled this story with the warmth of the holidays, and the warmth of falling in love with someone during this time of year, because I have a lot of experience in this area. ♥ Natalie and I said “I love you” for the very first time on December 1st, many years ago–falling in love together during the holidays was one of the most treasured highlights of my life, and I wanted to translate that into a story that I hope you love as much as I loved writing it. ♥
Mandy’s not having a great December. She was given a rescue “dog” (who looks much more like a wolf) by her lackluster girlfriend as a Christmas present. Mandy lives in a studio apartment and can’t keep her new pet, but that turns out to be the least of her problems when she’s woken up in the middle of the night by a gorgeous naked woman…who just happens to be stealing a pair of jeans from her dresser.
Paige isn’t a thief…she wants Mandy to believe she’s a werewolf, who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, and through a series of unfortunate events, ended up at an animal shelter. That’s an unbelievable idea for Mandy…until Paige transforms in front of her.
But the worst part? Paige’s sister is still at the pound, still masquerading as a wolf-dog, because to transform to her human form would be to out werewolves to the world, something that can never be done.
A madcap rescue and a holiday romance to warm your heart await you in A WOLF FOR THE HOLIDAYS. This novella is approximately 22,000 words.
