Paige Tyler | Secrets from COMPANY OF WOLVES
December 3, 2015
What was your favorite part about writing IN THE COMPANY OF WOLVES?
In the first two books of the SWAT Series (HUNGRY LIKE THE WOLF and WOLF TROUBLE) the stories
revolve around the two most senior members of the Dallas Police Department SWAT
team (SWAT Commander Sergeant Gage Dixon and squad leader Senior Corporal
Xander). IN THE COMPANY OF
WOLVES is SWAT Officer Eric Beckerâ€™s story. Becker is one of the younger
guys in the Pack of alpha werewolves and heâ€™s only been a werewolf for about two
years compared to Gage whoâ€™s been a werewolf for fourteen years and Xander who
went through his change eight years ago. The idea of being able to approach the
story from a completely different direction really appealed to me.
Now if the fact that heâ€™s simply a â€śnewerâ€ť werewolf was the only aspect of
Beckerâ€™s personality I was dealing with during the story, the book probably
wouldnâ€™t have turned out the way it did. But if youâ€™ve been paying attention to
Becker in the first two books in the series, you might have noticed that he has
a somewhat casual outlook on things like rules and pack authority. Plus, heâ€™s in
a place in his life where heâ€™s completely ready to meet The One for
himâ€”that one woman out there each werewolf is fated to be with.
Put all this together and you can probably guess that Becker is a young
werewolf just looking to get himself into trouble. And when he meets the heroine
Jayna Winston in the most insane â€śmeet cuteâ€ť situation ever, even I was shocked
at the things he does! Once he thinks heâ€™s met The One, itâ€™s like his
head just left the building. As you can imagine, Gage gets completely pissed.
There was a time about halfway through the story when I wasnâ€™t sure who was
going to hurt Becker moreâ€”the bad guys or Gage!
Beyond Becker and his youthful adventures, another thing I loved about
writing IN THE COMPANY OF
WOLVES is the chance to develop my particular werewolf mythology a bit more.
Not to give anything away, but youâ€™ve had two books to see how alpha wolves
behave, and now itâ€™s time to introduce you to the other kinds of werewolves out
there. The stuff the reader learns about in this book make for a load of fun,
with all kinds of twists and turns. I promise you one thing for sure, I think
everyone out there will lose their minds as they start realizing where this
series is going!

He opened his mouth to order her to drop the MP5 she had aimed at him,
but nothing would come out. It was like sheâ€™d robbed him of the ability to
speak. Shooting her wasnâ€™t an option, though. And the idea of arresting her
didnâ€™t make him feel any better.
There's a new gang of criminals in town who are organized and ruthless in the
extreme. When Eric Becker, along with the rest of the Dallas SWAT team, ends up
in the middle of a shootout, he immediately senses werewolves-a lot of them.
Turns out, the new bad guys are a pack of wolf shifters.
In a spray of gunfire, Becker comes face-to-face with the most gorgeous woman
he's ever seen. Becker does the logical thing. He hides her and leaves the scene
with the rest of his team.
Jayna Winston has no idea why that SWAT guy helped her, but she's glad he
did. Ever since she and her pack mates got mixed up with those Eastern European
mobsters, everything had pretty much fallen apart.
So what's a street-savvy thief like Jayna going to do with a hot
alpha-male wolf who's a police officer?

He needs to be trained/mentored by the older wolves.
(Jana B 7:03pm December 3, 2015)
I think they would make him do things that he might think where dumb but really teaching him.
(Jennifer Beck 7:12pm December 3, 2015)
He's probably go through a lot of bullying or tough love so he'd grow into his alpha male role of being able to protect others and fending well for himself... maybe?
(Lisa L. 7:54pm December 3, 2015)
Learn from his mistakes... grow as an individual to shine when the time is right.
(Colleen Conklin 8:14pm December 3, 2015)
He would need to overstep boundaries or make errors of
judgement in his youthful irreverence. Then he would need
help getting out of trouble.
(G. Bisbjerg 1:02am December 4, 2015)
Fall for him.
(Marissa Yip-Young 6:11am December 4, 2015)
Listen and watch from the older and wiser and learn from mistakes that he makes .
(Joan Thrasher 12:58pm December 4, 2015)
Tough love would probably work, but a strong guiding hand
might be better.
(Sandy Haber 4:15pm December 4, 2015)
He might face challenges from the older ones or be less listened to in matters of decisions made. Thanks for the contests
(Gloria Vigil 11:10pm December 4, 2015)
Have enough confidence in himself and what he wants to become to get him through the teasing, training, and emotions
(Brenda Rumsey 8:54am December 5, 2015)
I think he should keep his mouth shut and his eyes and ears
open and learn as much as he can.
(Janie McGaugh 12:44pm December 6, 2015)
Needs to be alone alot.
(Emily Stemp 11:32am December 6, 2015)
Usually, they feel the need to prove themselves to the others to assert that they're part of the team and deserve to be there!
(Nicole Potter 8:03pm December 6, 2015)
Train, jump and Love!!!
(Sharon Sommer 8:17pm December 6, 2015)
he probably gets all the chores and also a lot of tough
(Diane Sallans 12:51pm December 7, 2015)
He has to learn and go through rites of passage the same as other.
(Nadine Stacy 1:39pm December 7, 2015)
He'd have to undergo something similar to fraternity
hazing from his peers and lengthy period of mentoring and
training from the elders. Probably something like growing
up in ancient Sparta.
(Irene Menge 3:19pm December 7, 2015)
(Emily Stemp 9:57am December 8, 2015)
Face challenges and take risks - as well as lots of mentoring and running the gauntlet, as it were - rites of passage, as mentioned by other readers.
(Felicia Ciaudelli 10:42am December 8, 2015)
I think there would be a lot of joking going on, pranks, plus the
need to prove himself to the alpha wolves. So there would be a lot
of mistakes to learn from but also parts where he could prove
(Jeannie Platt 12:23pm December 8, 2015)
I am sure there would be hazing at the very least and depending on the older ones, there could be some macho posturing and/or fighting to prove superiority.
(Shirley Cochran 2:55pm December 8, 2015)
would have to be one heck of a fighter and wise.
(Angela Parrish 3:11pm December 8, 2015)
#1. The ability to endure good-natured ribbing by the older-
#2. Share a 6 pack with "the pack" and remain standing.
#3. Prove he can shift faster than those older-wiser wolves.
#4. Show them he can: get the girl! Ha-ha.
