WOLF ON THE RUN is now available from Samhain Publishing! This is the third book in the Salvation Pack series. BLURB: She’s run right into the arms of the big bad wolf.
Salvation Pack, Book 3
Considered an abomination for her inability to shift, Cherise Michaels has been on the run from her pack since she was a teenager. After her mother is murdered by her former packmates, Cherise is alone, grieving and out of options. Until a dream puts her on course toward her last hope—Salvation, North Carolina.
She makes it to Salvation only to be cornered by her pursuers and then rescued by the biggest, baddest werewolf she’s ever seen.
Cole Blanchard has no trouble dispatching the intruders trespassing on pack land. Convincing their skittish quarry she’s safe is another story. Cole senses she is his mate and he’ll protect her to his last breath, even it means risking everything to face her former pack. In Cole’s arms, Cherise learns there’s something in this world more powerful than fear—desire and love. She knows loving her is a death sentence for Cole, so she plans to store up a lifetime of memories before she lets him go…
It's hard to believe that my first book was published ten years ago today. It's been a rollercoaster ride with many ups and downs, but I wouldn't trade a minute of it for anything!
I want to thank Ellora's Cave Publishing, Samhain Publishing and Carina Press for publishing my books. I want to thank Heidi Moore, Shannon Combs, Mary Altman, Pamela Cohen, Raelene Gorlinsky, Ansley Velarde, Jessica Bimberg and Deborah Nemeth. You are all amazing editors and I've learned so much from each one of you.
Tomorrow, October 28th, my 75th book (Wolf on the Run) will be released from Samhain Publishing. There have been Quickies, novellas and many full-length novels, but 75 projects in all. I can't wait to see what the next ten years have in store.
I want to send my heartfelt thanks to everyone who has ever bought and read one of my books. The beauty of the modern world is that I've been able to "meet" many of my readers through social media. Your support, enthusiasm and encouragement is invaluable.
Writing is a very solitary profession. I get up in the morning, have breakfast, turn on the computer and write. I work for weeks or months on a project never knowing if it will be contracted or rejected. And even once a contract is signed the book has to go through the editing process. When all is said and done, the book is released. I have no idea if readers will love it as much as I do.
I've been fortunate enough to have several really successful series--Tapestries, Legacy, Awakening Desires, Hades' Carnival, and Salvation Pack. There have been other books I've deeply loved that haven't fared as well. That is the reality of the writing life.
Through all the ups and downs, I keep writing...because I have to. I have a lot more stories left to tell. I hope you'll stay on this journey with me and keep reading my books.
October 27th also marks my 10th year as a published author. Time has flown by so fast. To celebrate, I'm giving away a signed print copy of Night of the Tiger, the first book in the Hades' Carnival series, along with an adorable stuffed white tiger.

HOWL OF THE WOLF, the final book in the Hades' Carnival quartet, is now available in PRINT!
Hell’s last chance could mean their last breath. Hades’ Carnival, Book 4
When artist and tarot reader Sabrina Wolfe runs across an old carousel wolf in an antique shop, she can’t resist buying the compelling symbol of her totem animal, her protector. But she isn’t prepared when the wooden animal comes to fang-flashing life—and shifts into a darkly sexy man.
Arand is the last of seven immortal warriors sworn to protect the Lady of the Beasts. Freed by Sabrina’s touch, their instant physical attraction is hot, intense—yet neither is safe until twenty-four hours have passed and the curse is truly broken.
Hades plans to use every one of those hours to unleash his last effort to control the world—or see both the warrior and his woman dead. Though help comes from unexpected quarters, Arand and Sabrina alone risk paying the ultimate price for victory. Their lives…and their very souls.
It's that time again. Yes, it's time for KATE HILL'S HALLOWEEN PAGE! She's got lots of her author friends, including me, helping her celebrate the holiday with tons of fun and prizes to be won during the month of October. Stop by and check it out!

Just when you thought the Devil had gotten his due, he’s back for more.
Hades’ Carnival, Book 5 Now that the five-thousand-year curse that kept him and his fellow shapeshifting warriors trapped in animal form has been lifted, Mordecai doesn’t quite know what to do with himself. He is free—in theory. Hell left its stain on his soul, and his relationship with the warriors who once trusted him is uneasy. The only bright spot in his life is Jessica, whose shining innocence he dare not taint with his inner darkness. But it’s getting harder and harder to stay away from her. Jessica longs for the days she and Mordecai shared an easy friendship. Now he seems as distant as the stars. He denies there’s a problem, but she’s determined to penetrate his shields. Hades has been plotting his revenge from his prison. He can’t harm Mordecai without harming himself. But there’s nothing to stop him from wreaking havoc by hurting the one woman Mordecai would give his life to protect—Jessica.
Warning: Vengeance, hot steamy sex and heart-melting romance.
WOLF IN HER BED
has received a 4 1/2 star review from Long and Short Reviews!
"There is a lot of passion and romance here, and five deliciously hot werewolves to delight. There is also danger at every turn, from the spies from the Louisiana pack, and later from Armand’s father Remy. I enjoyed the fast pace of this one, it made me cry, sigh and there were some giggles in there as well. If hot and strong heroes, sassy and independent women and lots of searing romance are what you enjoy, this is well worth the reading.." ~Foxglove
