British Alpha wolf Jake Marsden spends his days among humans, pursuing a lucrative music career and avoiding his pack’s politics. When his current DJ tour takes him to the US, he stops in Los Lobos to visit family, and runs into the one Wolf he never wants to see again—the mate who rejected his claim.
While visiting her brother in Los Lobos, free-spirited Lexi Luparell is shocked to encounter the Wolf she’d denied when they were teens. Now she must face her guilt for the cruel way she spurned him all those years ago, make amends, and admit the truth. Jake was right all along—they’re meant to mate.
Lexi would love to explore the mate concept and her overwhelming attraction to virile, Alpha Wolf Jake, but he wants nothing to do with her. How can she break down his defenses when she’s the reason he built them in the first place?
Jake dates only human women now. Lexi had her shot at being his mate, and she threw it away. But when her life is threatened, he may have to rethink his position and do whatever it takes to claim his one true mate.
Character Choice: Werewolf vs. Vampire
Nice to be here at Mythical Books to celebrate my recent release, Under A Mating Moon, a paranormal romance featuring Wolf shifters!
I enjoy writing both werewolves and vampires. I like the distinct and unique aspects of both as much as I like their commonalities—for me, they’re all passionate, loyal, powerful, and, of course, dangerous.
Before I jumped into the world of the Black Hills Wolves, I had never written a novel starring our fierce, furry friends. Vampires and the Fae were my go-to paranormal creatures. Then, a writer pal invited me to the multi-author world of the Black Hills. So, I suppose you could say the wolves chose me. Glad they did. :-)
Characters tend to come to me before the plot, and I get to know them via detailed questionnaires. From there, their individual story unfolds. For my wolves, Ross and Darci of Diamond Moon arrived first. Turns out, Ross has two siblings: a younger sister, Lexi, and an older brother, Evan. Energetic, free-spirited Lexi clamored for my attention next and thus, Under A Mating Moon was born. I hope you enjoy the excerpt below, of Lexi in action. She stomped all over poor Jake’s heart, and now she has to make amends…
Celia lives in California with her family and two feisty cats. She writes urban fantasy and paranormal romance, and has a particular fondness for werewolves, vampires, and the Fae. Her award-winning vampire series – The Tranquilli Bloodline – is available from Champagne Books. Under A Mating Moon is her second werewolf story for Decadent Publishing’s, multi-author, Black Hills Wolves shifter line.
When not writing, you’ll find Celia exercising, reading a good book, hanging with her family, or indulging her addiction to Joss Whedon’s TV shows and movies.
