For a pantser like me, writing a story arc is an interesting process. When I write the first story I have no clue about the world-building ahead of me. The characters leap out whether I plan them to or not. Some minor characters demand their time in the sun, and some roll under the table and are never heard of again. I decided to be more organised with Sapphire Ranch wolves and plan in advance. *hangs head* I can honestly say that I’ve not managed to stick to single word of that plan.
I have a vague idea of who the last two books are about, but somehow I managed to throw in an additional wolf. You’ll have to read The Rogue Wolf to understand. That’s a hint to buy it, you understand. Does that mean I have to write a sixth book or do I stick this wolf in a box marked ‘not this time’?
Zeke and Owen’s story isn’t finished. Zeke has a request, and he’s not going to be happy until he gets it. I plan on their happy ever after, but it might have to wait until they’ve taken out the hunters. Oh lord, that might take another five books.
Blurb: Will Owen submit, or will the lone wolf run?
Shifter Owen Pope is a bitter man, a lone wolf, banished by his pack for defying his Alpha. He survives day by day, working as a laborer, sometimes living for months as a wolf. On the borders of Sapphire Ranch, he catches a scent that calls to his wolf as he hunts.
Then he’s cornered, trapped with nowhere to go, and Owen realizes to his horror that the delicious scent belongs to the human pointing a gun right between Owen’s eyes.
He escapes, only to be confronted by two wolves, and his world is turned when he realizes one of them is a shifter from his former pack. Owen has so many questions but he’s not sure he’s going to like the answers.
Zeke is huge and fierce to his co-workers in the Cavalry, but he has one desire; to protect Owen and create a life together. Will Owen submit, or will the lone wolf run?

Excerpt: Under the cold full winter moon, Owen padded through the fields, now devoid of sheep or cows, and contemplated his options, limited though they were. He could smell something ahead but he couldn’t identify what was teasing his senses. Suddenly he froze, one paw in the air. A tall—no, huge—dark-skinned human, dressed in black jacket and pants, faced him, a high-powered rifle pointing between Owen’s eyes. The human seemed equally still, his eyes locked on Owen. Then he lowered the weapon. Owen managed to recover his senses enough to back away, not taking his eyes off the human who seemed to be the source of the glorious scent. He had the oddest feeling—like the human didn’t want him to leave.
Owen turned and fled, his senses on high alert. As he ran into a clearing Owen spotted two wolves ahead of him. They hadn’t seen him yet, too busy playing like young pups. He should warn them about the human with the rifle.
What the hell are two wolves, two shifters, doing here?
They noticed him and stood rock still, the three of them at an impasse. Owen made the first move, retreating backwards into the darkness. They could take their chances. He breathed a sigh of relief when they didn’t follow him, but it was short lived as he contemplated the identity of one of the wolves. They weren’t the first wolf shifters he’d met since his banishment, but none of the others had been from his previous pack. He would have to move on now he’d been discovered. What was Cal Pope doing here, so far away from home? Owen had questions. Lots of questions, but he wasn’t sure he was going to like the answers.
