The book to read is not the one that thinks for you
but the one which makes you think.
Welcome to a brand new year! I contemplate writing down my New Year resolutions every year, and every year seems to go by without me recording my goals. The beginning of this year has flown by, and I haven't even had time to think about resolutions let alone write them down.
As you all know from my last missive, I finally packed up and moved from the Pacific Northwest to frigid Utah. (Okay, it's not really that cold, but it is much colder than I am used to. LOL.)
The truck with all of my stuff finally arrived, and we were able to unload it into the storage unit. I also got to fly a trip out of SLC which was kind of fun. Different carrier than I am used to, but the job is still the same. And of course digging through the many boxes, bags, and tubs to find my pajamas has kept me hopping.
I was finally starting to get a bit settled and bam! COVID hit. I have been lucky to not have gotten the virus yet, even in all my travels as a flight attendant, but my luck ran out at the beginning of this week.
I'm guessing the stress of the move, the much colder temperatures, and a slew of other factors played a part in my contracting the illness. Lucky for me it hasn't been too awful. Mostly a really bad cold with a cough that heckles and a headache that I can't seem to kick.
I count myself blessed that it hasn't been any worse. I'm also blessed because I have had my two adorable boys keeping me company (and warm) while I rest. In fact, they are both next to me now as I am typing this newsletter.
So, that has pretty much been my life for the last few weeks. I haven't even touched my laptop in at least two weeks, at least not to write or edit. I've been a total slacker. However, this newsletter is my jumpstart into getting back into the writing world.
Hopefully this finds you all well and in good health. If not then my heart and prayers are with you all. Thank you for being my faithful followers and readers. I look forward to sharing good news as the year goes on.
From Book 1:
Ever feel like you don’t belong?
Try being a hunter living with werewolves. I’m the definition of “doesn’t fit in”. I’m not Pack, but I’m not the enemy, either.
I struggle to survive among werewolves who are stronger and faster than me, and are competitive enough to break a bone or two for the sake of “fun.”
Greyson, their alpha, is the worst of them all.
Blatantly relentless and twice as deadly, Greyson rules the Pack and expands its territory even though it’s already the largest in the region. I just wish he’d stop interfering with my life. He’s got enough trouble of his own with his incomplete mate bond, but he’s made it his hobby to tease and test me at every opportunity.
Doesn’t my life sound fun?
When wolves from surrounding packs start mindlessly attacking the innocent humans in our city, Timber Ridge, everything changes.
Werewolves don’t turn feral without reason. Which means someone is making this happen, and they’re targeting our Pack.
I don’t like where this is going, but how am I supposed to stop a feral wolf outbreak when I’m just one hunter? Can Greyson and I set aside our differences to see the Pack through this?
Hunted is the first book in the Pack of Dawn and Destiny urban fantasy trilogy and is part of the Magiford Supernatural City world. It features werewolves, hunters, and fae, and is filled with humor, adventure, and a sweet romance that will have you laughing in delight.
So, I love Shea's ability to create a delightful world. She has drawn me into this world. I'm not a huge fan of all the werewolf and vampire hype, but she has created a magical world where everything just fits and it isn't your typical insta love tropes. I've read the first two books of this series and am eagerly awaiting the final. Definitely two thumbs up for this series.
