The daughter of a sultan alpha, Selena Kurt agrees to an arranged wulfkin mating to protect her sister from a dangerous alpha from the enemy clan. To her surprise, her match is Marcin Ulf, the next in line for the Hungarian throne . . . and the wulfkin who broke her heart years ago.

Marcin is just as shocked to learn he'll be matched to the enemy's daughter and the woman he's never forgotten. Before they can be paired, however, they're drawn into a tournament where Marcin will compete to free his estranged imprisoned brother, while Selena battles for the life of another wulfkin alpha. Both intend to seize this chance to save those they're fighting for - even if it means facing off with one another just as their romance rekindles.

Will tribe loyalty triumph, or will they realize they're better off as a team before it's too late?

Cloaked in Blood is the book 3 in the Wulfkin Legacy series, but can be read a stand-alone-book

5 Reasons Why Cross-Cultural Romances Are Great (As TF Walsh discovered) 

My husband was born in Australia. In fact, his family tree traces back to the first few fleets that arrived on Australian shores back in 1788. He’s a true blue Aussie. 

Me, I was born in Romania and moved to Australia at the age of eight with my family. 

While we’re both from vastly different cultural backgrounds, it only brings us closer. He adores the way I can roll my ‘R’, which he can’t do, and I love learning all the different Aussie sayings.

In Cloaked in Blood, I wanted to show this exact blending of cultures. 

Marcin is Hungarian, the heir to the Emperor Alpha Varlac throne. While Selena is Turkish and her father is the great Sultan Alpha Varlac. So, yep, these two grew up with diverse lifestyles, but it lends itself to discovering some amazing things about each other. Such as Selena introducing Marcin to delicious dishes. 
---- 
Selena leaned forward, grabbed a slice of bread, and used it to scoop up meat. She popped it into her mouth. I followed suit, inhaling the spicy fragrance that tingled across my tongue. I swallowed the food and was going in for another. 
“Do you like it?” Selena asked. 
I swallowed the food. “I might just marry this sauce.” 
She wiped her lips with a napkin and smirked. Black makeup swept across her eyelid, curving upward at the corners and giving her sexy cat eyes. When we first met in Turkey, she’d never worn makeup and her beauty still radiated, though the theatrics of her new look definitely held my attention. CLOAKED IN BLOOD 
----- 
5 tongue-in-cheek reasons I believe cross cultural relationships are great. 
You can’t help but find the other person fascinating as you learn about their background, their language, their culture. You’re always learning new things 
Perfect reason to travel abroad regularly 
Becoming bilingual, plus the kiddies will be too 
Discovering new foods and learning from the mother-in-law how to cook it perfectly 
Life will be full of surprises with new situations always coming up. Like in Romanian Easter, we paint boiled eggs, then tap them between two people. The person whose egg doesn’t crack is the winner. It’s all about picking the best egg initially. Something my husband has become an expert at:)

I too think multi cultural relationships are good. I love hearing kids speak in two different languages. You can learn so much from the other person, and that is such a positive in healthy relationships :)
