What's the story behind your latest book?
It is a paranormal romance book that revolves around the main characters Nola Williams and Tony Perkins. Nola is a white wolf and has become a loner at the age of eighteen. Her pack was killed during a heat wave and some of the remaining ones that escaped, tried to save the few they knew were alive. Someone saved Nola and from there she was taken in a real red wolf pack at the age of fifteen. When she turned eighteen she left on her journey and a year later finds out that the red wolves were killed by being hunted by hunters.
Now at the age of twenty four Nola has worked hard and has never joined another pack since. She has truly become a loner and distance herself from anyone but a select few. Then one day her boss and friend Wilbur Cantrell feels works too hard and puts her on a vacation to a town called "Saye." There she meets a man who just so happens to be her lifetime mate Tony Perkins who is rude, arrogant and pompous to everyone.
Over the course of meeting Tony, Nola has to find a way to save herself and the people she soon starts to care about during the two week vacation from a man and woman who have been hunting her down because of the fact that she is a pure blooded wolf of royalty. Only Tony and his pack can save her and she doesn't know what to do when she suddenly finds out that not all of her pack have died and that her mother somehow also survived.
When her mother comes she will have to choose to stay with her mate and love Tony or leave with her pack and family.
