Re: Jaguar Hunt (8:06am June 8, 2014):

Thanks, Brenda!
Janie, lol, let me know if it works! :)

Re: Silence Of The Wolf (10:07pm March 20, 2014):

Thanks so much, Colleen! The Highlanders are a must. Really! Victoria, you love me for it, don't you? LOL Ruth, thanks so much! I'm so thrilled you are loving them!!! Ohmigosh, Marcelyn, you should see what he does under the Christmas tree with you if you end up getting him to visit you there! Gena, you are too funny. I'm so thoroughly glad you love them! :) Linda, they are all good enough to eat all up. And yes, Chase is in Cougar's Mate and it's a fun filled cougar shifter story. :) Lots of action, romance, adventure, humor, sexiness, and just plan fun. Jeanne, you've got it! Guthrie's story will be out in October! Mary, I so agree. They all have their own special personalities and their own unique stories. Kai, me too. Though I've been having a blast with the jaguars and now the cougars. :)

Re: Silence Of The Wolf (10:01pm March 20, 2014):

Karin, lol, yes, Highlanders are hot. :) Thanks, Ummi! Pam, Ian was so much fun to write as the alpha pack leader. I enjoyed bringing him back in A Hero of a Highland Wolf as Grant MacQuarrie's best friend. :) Peggy, a hot jaguar and a hot SEAL wolf, not that is a combination. And I soooo agree! :) Thanks, Desiree! LOL, Diane, like potato chips, salty and delicious and you can't have just one. :)

Re: Silence Of The Wolf (9:11am March 20, 2014):

Denise, thanks!

Bonnie, he is hot! :) Tom. *sigh*

Re: Silence Of The Wolf (8:23am March 20, 2014):

Denise, I loved the Cayman Islands!!! The only thing I wished was that I could have run into Duncan before Shelley got hold of him! :)

Thanks, Celeste.

LOL, Linda, I'm so thrilled you loved it! I'm excited about writing A Silver Wolf Christmas next. I'm working on A SEAL Wolf for Sale right now. :)

Re: Jaguar Fever (8:07am August 2, 2013):

Thanks so much, Diana! The wolves are all stand alone titles also--and I have lots of them! And many more to come!

Cecilia, you never know when one was a shifter club, truly. They have one in Houston, and Dallas, so surely they have one in San Antonio and Austin. I'm certain of it. :) I haven't found any in Waco yet...but you never know. :) Oh, and Amarillo. :)

Kai, thanks so much!! I know. They're at special walmarts and targets. We don't have them at my local stores either. But I get fan emails saying they located them at their stores. :( Thanks so much for loving both of the series!!!

Anita--thanks!!! Yes, I agree about dancing with Wade. Or David, really. Course it was more hands off because his brother would kill him otherwise. LOL

Ada, I think you're so right. I'm sure we'd get into a cat fight with Maya. She's already extended her "claws" once when another woman puts the moves on Wade.

April, where? Where? :) Thanks!

Re: Jaguar Fever (11:18pm August 1, 2013):

It is, Janie!

Thanks, Angelina, hope you have a chance to read them!

Thanks, Amy, hope you get into them and fall in love!

Lisa, thank you! I've only read a leopard one that had vampires and other things in it. Mine are really based on the real world, as real as it can be when the men and women can turn into jaguars!!! :)

Re: Jaguar Fever (11:14pm August 1, 2013):

Omigosh, both my kids call and I come back and the whole world came to the jag party while I was gone!!!

Pam, I hope you fall in love with it!!!

Thanks so much, Shelbie. I'm so glad you're having so much fun with the whole series. :) My big thing is to make each of them as different as I can from each other, so I really am thrilled you're enjoying them.

Becca, I soooo agree. I had both dogs and cats and there's something so endearing about both kinds.

Mary, thanks so much, glad you're enjoying them all! :)

Yes, LaRonda, he'd take you into his heated embrace, and you'll just melt. :)

You're welcome, Jeanne, good luck!

Chelsea, lol, yes, yum is right. :) And he had more moves where that came from.

Maureen, thanks, lots of fun. The characters always take off and do their own thing, which means I get to watch. :)

Jennifer, thanks so much! I'm thrilled you're loving them!!!

Thanks, Terree! I was confusing myself, writing about Jaguar Fever, have a contest on Savage Hunger, and just finished Jaguar Hunt. Which story was this in???

Thanks, Laura! One of my friends lives in MN and I keep saying I need to get up there to Ely and see the wolf reserve!:)

Re: Jaguar Fever (5:24pm August 1, 2013):

Raeline, yes, the best of both worlds! :) Truly!

Thanks, Stephanie! Definitely a different kind of club!!!

Thanks so much, Diana! Enjoy!

Colleen, you'd have fun. Dancing up close and personal. Yes!

Janice, thanks!! I sure hope you try my books out and fall in love! :)

Pamela, I loved meeting you in Atlanta! Maybe we can see each other in San Antonio! :) Thanks for loving my books!

Re: Jaguar Fever (12:58pm August 1, 2013):

LOL, Peggy, too funny, and I tell you what, their dance is HOT. His brother is suggesting they take a room when he interrupts them and Wade is none too happy. LOL :) I'm thrilled you enjoyed the scene. Lots more like that--except in the water... jaguars have a love of water. :)

Thanks, Barbara!! Hope you love it!

Nancy, it is! They move from Houston to Belize, but there's lots of conflict in between. :) And steamy romance.

Maria, thanks so much! I'm glad you are enthralled. My total goal!

Margie, I'm thrilled you're loving them. :)

Thanks, Susan!

You can, Leanne! You'll be in their world for sure. :)

Re: Jaguar Fever (9:30am August 1, 2013):

Thanks, Denise, now that's what I LOVE to hear! :)

Thanks, Bonnie! Hope you love it.

Hey, Sandy, I used to live in Eatontown, NJ. We went to a dance club, but I think it was in another state! :)

Re: Jaguar Fever (9:26am August 1, 2013):

Well this will be the ultimate club experience, Kristina! LOL :) I've lived in small towns forever too, but this one's really different. :)

Re: Jaguar Fever (8:46am August 1, 2013):

Okay, had to get my password reset. LOL :) Thanks so much, Linda, hope you get a chance to read it!

Jina, thanks so much!!! They're nearly done with the covers for A Highland Wolf Christmas and Hero of a Highland Wolf. They're GORGEOUS!!! They actually have models model for the pictures. :) I want to oil them down.

Kathleen, I had so much fun with creating it. :) I just need to have a werewolf walk into one. :)

Thanks, Danny! I try not to drool over them before I send off prizes when I'm giving them out. My name and title are raised on the book, but if they raised his muscles, tactile delight. :)

Thanks so much, Cindy! He's roaring back. Fun loving, hot, sexy, protective...he's got EVERYTHING a lady couldn't want!

Thanks so much, Angela!! It's been really fun writing this series. I have Jaguar Hunt coming next, in the summer of 2014, and another to follow after that. They are fun.

Denise, thanks!!! I'm so thrilled you are loving the books. Yes, definitely a bunch of alphas with lots of hot testosterone--but with a totally endearing quality too. :) Lovable.

Re: A Highland Werewolf Wedding (7:04am May 9, 2013):

Thanks, Kathleen!!! I have soooo much fun with them!

Thanks, Denise! Hope you have a chance to fall in love with them!

Hyunjin, yes!!!! And when they're wolfish at heart, watch out! :)

Betty, me too. I love Highlanders in any story!

Re: A Howl For A Highlander (1:19pm February 13, 2013):

Bonnie, it's beautiful and having a Highlander at your beck in call, even if he is a bit wolfish, especially if he's a bite wolfish, you would even have more fun!

Of course, Colleen. What else??? :)

Diana, me too.

Re: A Howl For A Highlander (11:44am February 13, 2013):

Thanks, Kent!

Hey, Cathy!!! Sounds good. Sand and sun, a romp through the woods, a dinner cruise, it all works! :)

Thanks, Bonnie!!! His eyes and, wait, is everyone JUST looking at his eyes??? Or, just afraid to say what else appeals??? His a wolf. He can handle it. :)

Karin, I love island paradises!

Ava, thanks so much!!!

Pam, swimming is good. That water is SOOO beautiful!

Carla, I'm with you there. If there's water, I've got to get in it. I should have been a water sign. Truly. :)

Re: A Howl For A Highlander (7:30am February 13, 2013):

Kathleen, absolutely!!! And they make a perfect anchor in the ocean!!! :)

Kimberly, thanks! He's a hunk!

Clare--same here, my mother, my kids--all have that fair Celt skin. My dad had more resistance to the sun and I got some of that, but I still have gotten badly burned, so wear a t-shirt! You'd have a great time!

Re: Savage Hunger (11:48am October 8, 2012):

LOL, Pamela!!! I'm glad you love the stories!

Re: Savage Hunger (2:17pm October 7, 2012):

Ah, thanks so much, Wanda!!! I hope you enjoyed Savage Hunger!! :)

Re: Savage Hunger (1:35pm October 7, 2012):

Mary, I don't know anything about a book named Trapped, but I do have a YA fae series that's been really popular with every age. :) The Dark Fae starts out the series. Dragon Fae, 5th of the series, has just been released.

Re: Savage Hunger (10:19am October 7, 2012):

Joanne, did anyone else do that in your family? My grandfather had a bedroom in the attic when he was a boy and climbed out onto the roof! My dad was a sleepwalker when he was young. I wonder if it's kind of hereditary or not! It's interesting that when you changed rooms, you were okay.

Lynn, that's cool that you went to Brazil!! Hey, we'd have a blast. Just bring your camera and we'll get some great shots. And when we see the jaguars, just be cool, calm and collected! Maybe we'll get lucky and they'll be our kind of jaguar!!!!

Janie, thanks!!! I was glad to have experienced them though I never thought I'd end up using so many in books!! Finding any of those hunky shifters...well, can you imagine having one under your tree for Christmas? Or...better yet, helping you to decorate one!

Re: Savage Hunger (4:05pm October 6, 2012):

Hey, Krissy! Yes, I so agree. No way is someone who's perfect appealing!!! :)

Re: Savage Hunger (11:41am October 6, 2012):

LOL, Christine, I agree! :)

Re: Savage Hunger (8:29am October 6, 2012):

Ah, thanks so much, Jennifer!!! I have to say we had the same problem at B&N here in Waco. I went to sign all my books there, and they only had one Savage Hunger, and I asked if she had any more, so she looked on the computer and sure enough there were 2 more. But where were they? They have 2 different new release stands and then the regular romance. I didn't even know about the one whole area of new releases. But I finally found them and autographed them! Thanks so much for loving both the wolf books and the jaguars. I think you'll have fun with Maya in the next book! I'm thrilled you're enjoying them!

LOL, Larena, but see, if you were a part time jaguar, you'd love it to! It would be in your blood! :)

Re: Savage Hunger (10:08pm October 5, 2012):

LOL, Peggy, and I was totally shy! It was great doing these things because it made me realize I could do just about anything I set my mind to do. LOL about your sleepwalking! That's the thing of it. Half the time you don't recall about it at all! You just are somewhere you ought not be. :) Thanks so much, and hope you love it!!! It does have a beautiful cover!

LOL, Alyson! I was afraid of stuff under the bed. My parents loved horror stories, and I guess I watched one with them that really got to me. The woman went to bed and something under the bed dragged her underneath it. That was it! I slept in the middle of the twin better. If my arm draped over the bed in the middle of the night, it would wake me up! :)

Re: Savage Hunger (6:57pm October 5, 2012):

Ah, thanks so much, Linda!! Yes, me too, I LOVED Tarzan and wanted to be Jane, too. LOL I don't know why I never thought about the bugs. I lived in Florida, for heavens sake!!! :) Mosquitoes were a REAL problem. I guess since they always looked so cool and collected, I never considered it could have been buggy! :)

Re: Savage Hunger (4:19pm October 5, 2012):

Ann, I agree! I hate being really deep in the water, but I love to read where someone else does it in a book! :)

Re: Savage Hunger (2:43pm October 5, 2012):

Sandy, I'm not into room service much, but definitely the AC or heat and nice comfy bed, bathroom, suits me fine!

LOL, Victoria, I'm the same way. I remember sleeping in a car while my sister, mother, the other mother and her youngest daughter slept in the trailer. The boy, who was my age, my dad and his dad slept in a tent. And The older girl in the car with me. It was the most excruciatingly cold and uncomfortable experience I've ever had--Washington State, not sure time of year, but COLD. :)

Thanks, Colleen, he would totally make you forget that you were in the jungle!!! :) And take you into another world entirely! But that's okay. You can live it vicariously through the book! I deep sea dive that way. LOL

Thanks so much, G. Bisbjerg! One of the men I spoke with had been through many jungles too, and it was fascinating!

Re: Savage Hunger (9:06am October 5, 2012):

LOL, Barbara, I'm with you there!!! I did some roughing it camping, and I'd much rather have the toilet, running water, and all that! In Jaguar Fever, they've got the creature comforts. :) Though in Savage Hunger, they do too, later. But in Jaguar Fever they have some pretty great meals! Nothing too exotic! LOL

Re: Savage Hunger (8:01am October 5, 2012):

Woohoo, Kai, you would be taken right in to the jaguar's arms--when he was human, and make his tail twitch when he was not!

Vicki, lol, the jaguar will take care of all the ginormous spiders and whatever goes bump in the night! Wait, he also goes bump in the night. Oh, that's the good part!

Re: A Seal In Wolf's Clothing (6:09pm March 17, 2012):

Sandra, absolutely, a muscular match. I like that!!! :)

Thanks so much, Linda!!! I love writing about the wolves. I've had a whole lot of requests for Bjornolf, so if my editor and publisher agree, maybe he can have his story too! The covers are definitely sexy! I love the wolves and now with the new jaguar shifter story coming out in Oct, I love the jaguar and couple on the cover too!!!

Thanks again!

Re: A Seal In Wolf's Clothing (10:03pm March 16, 2012):

Oh, Peggy, I was like you! I hadn't read anything for a very long time. I was busy working on degrees, having kids, then teaching my children to read and so that was all I was reading! LOL. But then I found the world of books again and wouldn't give them up again for the world. :)

Donna, I often write Wolf in SEAL's clothing by accident. I think because my working title was The Wolf and the SEAL and so I was so used to typing wolf first, I've had a hard time breaking myself of the habit. Can't teach an old wolf new tricks, kind of thing. LOL !
Jessica, thanks so much! Not sure about the title. Relative Danger?

Jennifer, absolutely!

Thanks, Savannah!

Colleen, lol, yeahs, if you've read any of my books, you'd know he wasn't soft and fluffy. LOL

Ohmigosh, Lynn, you're so right!!! Snuggling up to a wolfish body like that could be considered...well, maybe not exactly cute and cuddly. LOL I did have the heroine in A Highland Wolf Wedding say something to that effect to Cearnach. You'll have to see what he says in response...she doesn't mention the cuddly part, just that his kilt is...cute.

Re: A Seal In Wolf's Clothing (8:51pm March 16, 2012):

LOL, thanks, ladies! And gentlemen! Yeah, when you get a look of the cover, the notion of a fluffy seal kind of goes out the window. :) But when you're just talking about it, definitely raised eyebrows. :)

Re: A Seal In Wolf's Clothing (8:56am March 16, 2012):

Margorie, yes, yummy!

Chelsea, thanks so much! Hope you love it!

Angie, lol, that's just the way folks look at me when I mention the title!

Re: A Seal In Wolf's Clothing (6:41am March 16, 2012):

Thanks so much, Kathleen! A SEAL in Wolf's Clothing just made the USA Today bestseller's list!!!

Yes, absolutely, Mary!

LOL, Cate, I agree!

Re: Dreaming Of The Wolf (8:56pm December 11, 2011):

Ooh, that sounds great, Barb!

Re: Dreaming Of The Wolf (6:38am December 11, 2011):

Yum, Pam! That sounds terrific! I had lasagna at a Christmas party last night and it was yummy! :)

Re: Dreaming Of The Wolf (2:14pm December 9, 2011):

Thanks for the recipe, Sabrina. It sounds really yummy. Great for a wolf pack or a loner. :)

Leisa, thanks so much! I'm glad you're loving the wolves. Just send me a SASE if you need book marks! :)

Tamara, I so agree! My dad would say it puts hair on your chest. :) He was always full of sayings. LOL :)

Re: Dreaming Of The Wolf (2:09pm December 9, 2011):

LOL, Barb!!! I'm so glad you like it hot! Jake would love you! LOL!

Thanks, Jenny! I love those in the restaurant. I've never made them though! :)

Mary P, I agree! On both counts!

Diane, it's so nice having something you enjoy when you need it!!

Jeanne, sounds great! I love doing that too. Starting out with one recipe and then making it my own. But then it's hard to share because you just tossed a little of this and a little of that, and well, not sure how much, but it sure tastes great! :)

Mary Chin, Jake is setting the table for you! Congee sounds interesting. Never heard of it!

Mary Christian, yeah, hot soup and hot book work for me too!

Alyson, wish I lived there so I could visit them. I loved visiting the wolves and wolf dogs near Houston. We don't have any wolves at our zoo. :( But yes, on the jaguar!

Laura, I've never heard of that either, but it sounds really good!!

LOL, Pat, I agree, any meal cooked by a man sounds good to me! Your meal sounds great too!

Jan, he's ready and raring to go! :) Just bring out the plates, offer him dessert, and you've got your man. Wolf. Both. :)

Deb, that sounds so nice! I think the ritual should be begun again, starting now, don't you???

LOL, Darci, you have the right idea! And well, he'd agree with you! :)

Thanks so much, Jennifer! You know he'd cook anything for you that your heart desired!

Oooh, Cheri, yes, French onion soup! I love making it. Beef broth or beef bullion cubes in water, lots of onions, and a slice of toasted bread on top, buried under melted cheese. One of my favorite restaurants was the Magic Pan in St Louise. Crepes to die for--broccoli, cheese, white sauce and chicken, and another, a vegetable one, zucchini and all kinds of Italian kind of vegetables in a crepe, covered in cheese. And French onion soup. *sigh*

Re: Dreaming Of The Wolf (1:35pm December 9, 2011):

Thanks, Kathleen, they are gorgeous covers!

Stacie, me too. We have one Italian early in the family tree, although my daughter just married into a family with Italian heritage, but I'm really hooked on spaghetti. :)

Lisa, that sounds good! I love cold potato soup with chives on top...rich cream, yum. I haven't eaten lunch yet, ladies, and you're all making me hungry while my spaghetti cooks!

Anne, that's what's nice about a super accommodating wolf. Your wish is his command. :) With a smile.

Debbie, great for your husband. My mother was a good cook, but she hated it. When dad retired, he did all the cooking. :)

Thanks, Colleen! Beef stew! Yes! Another really easy meal to make! Nice and hearty and great for winter.

LOL, Ilona, you have a keeper!!!Your dish sounds intriguing!

Marguerite, that sounds interesting and easy! I like easy and quick!

Patti, too funny. Yeah, he'd be up for something else before long! :) Hearty meal, hearty fun!

Diane, that sounds like a great idea!

Kathy, chili, yes! Another wonderful hot meal for a cold day. I love chili!

Vickie, love tacos. My dad made the best also! Buried in sharp cheese, yum! Thanks about the books. Glad you're loving the wolves' stories!!!

Kathleen, that would work! Thanks for loving the covers. They do a great job!

Thanks, Linda! We do the same with pizza. Add pepperoni, bell peppers, our own sauce, olives, whatever anyone wants to add! Much better than just the store bought, we think. :)
Hope you love the rest of the series!

Cathy, I know you wouldn't stop at just wanting a bite to eat from him.... :) Thanks for loving the wolves!

Thanks, Rich, super recipe! Hope you get a chance to read them!

Re: Dreaming Of The Wolf (1:18pm December 9, 2011):

Felicia, thanks so much! You're right! Soup is great any time of the year!

Marjory, and you could cope with anything else Jake offered you, right?

Donna, wild rice soup sounds divine! And I'll share Jake with you if you share your soup with me! :)

Lexi, I'm so sorry to hear it, but glad you have wonderful kids to help you get through it. I was really sick with the flu for Thanksgiving one year and my son made the turkey and my daughter the dressing and gravy and everything! They were 10 and 13. I believe in boys cooking as well as girls...my dad was a great cook! I hope you get too feeling better, just keep dreaming of those wolves. :)

I agree, Barbara! Family is what matters.

Thanks, Mau!

Peggy, absolutely on taking a break. We need it! Thanks for loving the series!! Merry Christmas!

Anne, I'm not into store bought sauces either. Right now I'm making spaghetti, tossing in fresh mushrooms, fresh ground hamburger meat, the really lean kind, and fresh onions and tomatoes, and adding all the good spices. I just use tomato sauce. :) Yum. Oh, and I have grated cheese in a package that I keep frozen to make it last longer, take off a frozen chunk and set it on top. The hot spaghetti melts into a nice dreamy cheesy topping. :)

Beth, did you ever have a chance to sit down with Bella's wolf from Heart of the Wolf? He takes eating a meal to a different extreme. :). Well, he cooked the meal first also!

G. and then you'd have another dessert. But I sure like the sound of yours!!

Joanne, I'm like you! I love chicken soup. Love chicken! But I also really enjoy making a homemade spaghetti sauce. :) I don't have a lot of time to spend cooking, so I find these really easy to do without a lot of muss and fuss. And if you make enough of it, leftovers are terrific!

Re: Dreaming Of The Wolf (8:26am December 9, 2011):

Sorry, I've been absentee! I will be back to comment later this afternoon! I had to work really late at the library last night, and while there, had the horrible realization that there are only 2 weeks until Christmas! Which for me, means 2 days off only because I've got to help my daughter with bridal pictures the other 2 days off! :) So I'm off today, have to work tomorrow, and am running around trying to get a handle on this! Will be back later to comment!

Thanks, ladies!!! I loved all the comments so far!!!

Re: Dreaming Of The Wolf (8:02am December 8, 2011):

Thanks, Tina! I do too!

That sounds great, Erin! They say it helps if you are breathing in the aroma as you're cooking it!

Thanks, Pamela! I've never tried either, but they sound good.

I agree, Mal!

Re: Wolf Fever (8:32am December 21, 2010):

Thanks, ladies!! April, thanks so much!!! I'm thrilled you're enjoying them! Diane, thanks!!! I hate the flu too. Hope the only kind we get is the Wolf Fever! :)

Thanks, Cindy, hope you like them!

Mary, thanks! And Ivy, hope you enjoy the latest!

I'm off to more blog posts and then work, but thanks to everyone for dropping by and commenting!

Re: Wolf Fever (8:10am December 16, 2010):

Pam--sometimes a really hot shower does make me feel better. Maybe from the hot steam. :)

Wooohoo, thanks so much, Katherine! Have a lovely time on your vacation!!! I'm working hard to get more out there! LOL! I also have Deadly Liaisons that's out, which is a vampire romance, and one of my editors is considering it. So maybe after the holidays I'll have a yay or nay. :)

Debbie, interesting about elderberry. Wonder where we could get it? All I can think of is elderberry wine.

Tabitha, I substitute taught for all grades, but especially for the young children, I constantly washed my hands! :)

Barbara, thanks!! I hope you love Heart of the Highland Wolf! I only took the flu shot once when I was on Active Duty in the Army and got so sick over the 4th of July with fever and chills while in training, I thought I'd die. They say it doesn't effect you the same way, but all I ever hear is that the flu shot might not work against the strain that hits your area.

Diane, I agree if you can avoid being out when the flu hits. It's hard when you're working and have to go to work and be around a sick public. A patron last year threatened to bring in her sick kid to make us sick because our policy was not to check out items (because of abuse) to a parent for their children. They can check out on their own cards, but we had situations where the kids didn't exist, and they were getting 20 movies at a time...or in her case, there was ALWAYS a reason her kid couldn't come in and she wanted to check out items for her. But her threat to us was a form of terrorism. Pure and simple.

Patricia, that sounds like the time my kids took care of me. I was sooo sick!

Carol, how awful! I have a book signing at our Books-a-Million Saturday and hope they have it. B&N has already sold out. Hastings doesn't have it in yet. :( Heart of the Wolf is in it's 3rd printing and is now in the warehouse (mistyped it werehouse first...hmm, Freudian Slip?) Thanks so much for buying

Re: Wolf Fever (7:52am December 16, 2010):

Pamela--I agree about reading almost makes it worthwhile to get sick. I had a horrible cough and couldn't raise my voice above a whisper, so had to keep taking off from work. I was so sick, but the only thing that kept my sanity is I'd go to bed and read, sleep, read and sleep!

Vikki--yes, great ideas! I like those cough tapes too. They're really convenient if you have an annoying cough and need something that's really quick and easy to carry in your purse. I love making homemade chicken or turkey soup. I feel I'm getting better just while breathing in the steam from the soup as I'm making it. And a box of tissues is a must!

Vickie, thanks so much!!! Hope you are looking forward to Heart of the Highland Wolf!!!

And LATE BREAKING NEWS: Yesterday, I sold A GHOST OF A CHANCE AT LOVE--a time travel western romance/ghost story set in 19th Century Salado and Waco, Texas! I live near there and love to visit. There are haunted houses and old West dignitaries and even outlaws stayed at the Stagecoach Inn where I set the story, so I'm really excited about it!

Yeah, Clio, what is it that everyone in the family can get sick but mom's?

Thanks, Leni! Yes, I wrote it during the flu season last year, and now it's being released during the flu season, so perfect timing!

Amanda, absolutely. If we took a clue from animals, that's what they do...sleep when they're sick or injured to heal.



Peggy--yes all of that sounds good too!

Valerie--yes on the Vitamin C. I'm bad about keeping OJ in the house, but it's so good for you!

Re: Wolf Fever (7:37am December 16, 2010):

Ohmigosh, ladies!!! I can't get notices that anyone has commented, and my daughter came over after I got off work yesterday (Cynthia--believe me, most of us writers don't get big bucks and so unless we have a significant other supporting us, have to work! :)) and was helping her study for her GRE--okay, so why do we have to know a bunch of ARCHAIC words for graduate entrance exams? Heck, half I know because I write medieval historical romances! :)

But I was so thrilled to hear from everyone!

Elizabeth--sounds great--hmm never tried your remedy, but sounds viable. One year my mother, dad and I were sick with the flu after Christmas and for some reason, a baked potato and a little beer were all we could manage to get down! :)

Cynthia--great ideas! Last night, I had an idea on The Wolf and the SEAL that I'm currently finishing up and....went to sleep, and darned if I can remember what I was thinking of adding. argh. :)

Anthonia, oh, absolutely, and loved your mention of a friend or family. Wolf packs are like that. One Thanksgiving, I was so sick with the flu, my son, who was 14 at the time made the turkey with my 11 year old daughter making the gravy and stuffing, and then while I couldn't even read I had such a high fever and my eyes were so blurry, she read to me from a vampire YA book by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes. I got hooked on the book and began to write adult vampire romances with a hunter theme after that!

Re: Wolf Fever (9:36am December 15, 2010):

So true, Clio! The holidays can stress everyone out, and it is important to get plenty of rest. But everything else you mentioned are so important too. Several I know have been sick of one thing or another in the last couple of weeks. And a couple of holidays in the past, we had been hit with the flu, so it wasn't fun. Wishing everyone a healthy!! holiday!

Re: Wolf Fever (8:48am December 15, 2010):

Ah, after the holidays, Laura? Just think, you could take yourself out of the rush of the holidays, make some time for yourself, and just lose yourself in another world. :) I can't believe Christmas is the weekend after this one!!! Hope your holidays are filled with joy!

Re: Seduced by the Wolf (7:07pm August 25, 2010):

Ah, yes, Schulz, very German! :) On my mother's side--we had Kramer (changed to Cramer)...but he came over with a German prince as a mercenary force during the American Revolution. I love genealogy! And I've had small, medium and large dogs. Loved my lab--always wanted a chocolate one. :) I had standard poodles too. The bigger dogs remind me of their heritage. The smaller they are, the more diluted from their original wolf genes. :) I've never owned them, but I love Great Danes and Irish Wolfhounds! I have Irish Wolfhounds in Heart of the Highland Wolf, coming Jun 2011. :)

Re: Seduced by the Wolf (7:31pm August 24, 2010):

What, Anita??? You are working on edits before reading the story? Haven't you heard life is too short??? LOL :) Good luck with your edits and hope Leidolf is your reward for getting the job done!

Hi, Valerie, from Germany! My dad's family were Wilde from Germany!

I bet, Marjorie!!! I'd love to see them.

Thanks, Alice!

Thanks so much, Julie!!! Wolf Fever will soon be here! Truly! :) I had so much fun with poor Carol. And Chester Ryan McKinley? Hmm-hm. :)

Ah, thanks so much, Lisa!! It will be!!! I'm working on book 9 and 10 and loving them. And hope you do too!!! :)

Re: Seduced by the Wolf (5:52am August 24, 2010):

Ohmigosh, while I was at work this was posted and wow, great responses!

Thanks, Jennifer Bird, I hope you enjoy Leidolf and Cassie's story!

Kai, that was so touching. Thanks so much! If you need autographed book plates or book marks, just send me a SASE!

To all of you who said you'd trade places with Cassie, I'm thrilled you love Leidolf. And Leni, if you want to join the pack, he's always looking for new females for his bachelor males!

Marjorie, where in Indiana? I went to Officer Personnel school at Fort Benjamin Harrison, and my French grandfather, whom Cassie is named after, Roux, settled in Fort Wayne. :)

Peggy, you sound like you'd fit right in!

Suzie, too funny!

We all need a little inspiration, right, Sarah? :)

Sue, definitely, long distance running is a must. :)

Thanks to everyone for your overwhelming response. Hope you fall in love with the series if you're just checking it out and if you're already reading the series, hope you love Leidolf's story! I'm off to work on seducing a SEAL in The Wolf and the SEAL (the SEAL is very much a wolf)... :) after I work the day job! :)

Re: Legend Of The White Wolf (8:12am February 8, 2010):

I'm a wimp about my own blood! :) Cannot look when they take it from me, Sigrun! :) I'm definitely not into gore.

Re: Legend Of The White Wolf (2:32pm February 6, 2010):

Thanks, Sherry! :) I so agree!

Re: Legend Of The White Wolf (7:59am February 6, 2010):

LOL, Virginia! I loved your comments. Yes, definitely, men could learn from the mating for life way of a wolf!

Thanks, Donna, yes, totally lovable and sexy, and just what every girl needs for Valentine's!!!

Danelle, if you dream hard enough, maybe a real life wolfish kind of guy, loyal and protective will be yours!

Hi Gail! Werewolves are such hunks, aren't they!

Colleen, thanks so much!!! I'm thrilled you love my wolves!!!

Ah, yes, Jessica, the perfect time for wolves as lovers. Hmm-hm!

LOL, Kai, I love fans who keep me on my toes. I'm thinking I might have to throw in another wolf there just to muddy the waters further!! :) Thanks so much for bringing it up!!

I agree, Joanne, werewolves ARE wonderful!

Darci, yes, I love the mystery. So much more fun than if they were out, and everyone knew they already existed.

Thanks, Leni!

Mary, thanks!! I hope you love Legend of the White Wolf!

Woohoo, Jodi, I'm so glad I managed to show at least one reader what werewolves should be like! :)

G. Bisbjerg, thanks! I hope you give them a chance!

Thanks so much, Cecilia!!! I so agree...they are beautiful and werewolves are the personification of all that is good in them. The werewolves that are not good, has nothing to do with their wolf's half, but their human half. :( Thanks!

Hi Sandy M, if you love wolves, you'll love these werewolves!

Cynthia, thanks!!! I'm so glad I've given you a look at how werewolves can be real, and not at all beast like!

Gigi, lol, so true!

Vikki, what do you think of the new Wolfman coming out? They're always trying to remake the classics, but so often the remakes have so much wand-waving magic in them that it loses something of the telling of the original story.

Thanks, Molly! I hope you enjoy Legend of the White Wolf!

Sherry, I love the concept of soulmates too.

Thanks, Wanda!! Love to hear what you think of Legend!!

Re: Legend Of The White Wolf (7:30am February 5, 2010):

Tanja, mine too!!! :) And yes, spice it is! Thanks for commenting!

Christine, I so agree!!!

Re: Deadly Liaisons (7:49pm January 6, 2010):

Yes, both make for the perfect hunk, Crystal!

Thanks so much, Cathy! I can't wait for Legend of the White Wolf to come out too! :) I'm thrilled you're enjoying the stories!!!

Thanks, Donna! Hope you have a chance to read them some day! :)

Re: Deadly Liaisons (7:10am January 3, 2010):

Absolutely, Susan! :)

Re: Deadly Liaisons (7:35am January 2, 2010):

Absolutely, Pamela, and that's
what I've done in Deadly
Liaisons! :)

Yes, Michelle! In Deadly
Liaisons, the vampires shift
into wolves when the need
arises. :)

Thanks so much, Cathy! Happy
New Year to you also!!!

Lisa, too funny! And you're so
right! Happy New Year!

Re: Deadly Liaisons (12:54pm January 1, 2010):

Colleen, yeah, wolves are
pretty sexy, even when they
come in the manly variety!

Mary, hmm, pure, raw energy, I
like that! :)

Sigrun, I totally understand!

Thanks so much, Diane, I'm
thrilled you're enjoying them!

I feel the same way, Rosemary!
I'd think it would depend on
the guy, truly. I mean, if
he's a hunk of a wolf, but
also just the kind of man you
need in your life, he's the
one. But if he's a vampire and
sets your blood afire, and is
there for you every step of
the way, then he's the right
kind of guy for you!

Armenia, totally agree!

Re: Deadly Liaisons (8:43am December 31, 2009):

Thanks so much for having me, Fresh Fiction!! And I've got a special treat! My book came in, so some lucky person will win a book. The winner will be announced a week from today! Happy New Year's Eve!

Re: To Tempt The Wolf (9:23am August 21, 2009):

Thanks to the last commenters last night. I read a children's book where the dragon was the kind creature and the princess was a holy terror. :) Have a super Friday, everyone!

Re: To Tempt The Wolf (8:49pm August 20, 2009):

Thanks, ladies!!! As a writer, I also love to read. In between books, I have a stack to sink my teeth into. :) Or if I'm stuck on a scene, I'll read someone else's book to break the writer's block! I wouldn't give up reading for anything! Or writing either!

Yes, Seduction of the Wolf is coming April 1, so it should be up soon, Michelle! The cover just came out! I'm really excited about it because it's Leidolf's story if you've been following the series! And Carol, the psychic will be in Book 6, name to be determined coming Fall 2010. :) I'm so glad you're enjoying the series, Diane! :) I love writing them!

Thanks to everyone for commenting and good luck! :)

Re: To Tempt The Wolf (8:45am August 20, 2009):

Thanks, Gloria! Sourcebooks cover artists do a phenomenal job! :)

LOL, Sandy!!! I really want to!!! I have Highlander roots and love anything Scottish, too. :)

Re: To Tempt The Wolf (7:13am August 20, 2009):

Thanks so much, Sherry!!! Are you on my mailing list? I send a free read each week so that fans have something to keep them going until the next book is out! :) The sign up is on my website. Thanks again!!!

Thanks, Stacey. I've been asked if I'm going to include other kinds of paranormal types in my stories, but since I try to keep them as realistic as possible, werewolves are the only unusual characters in the series.

I would love to write a couple with a Scottish laird though. Any interest? :)

That's what I love about writing! Fan feedback! That's why Carol, the psychic, is getting her own story, Book 6, and Leidolf in Seduced by the Wolf. :) Several have asked to see Jake and Tom in their own books also.

Thanks for dropping by, ladies! Good luck on the contest!

Re: To Tempt The Wolf (7:27am August 19, 2009):

Thanks so much, Jo! I really agree!
