Forever Wolf was the finale of the first three, but I've gotten a contract for another three. As you might have seen in the epilogue of Forever Wolf, Silver mentions the handful of Shifters who have come to the Pack.
I'm editing the fourth book right now and at present, the POV alternates between Evie, the Alpha heroine, and Constantine, the Shifter hero. It gives me a chance to look at the pack from an outsider's perspective and write a bit more about the Lukani (which is what the Shifters call themselves). Thank you and thank you again,

“I'm an exile. A disappointment. An Alpha without a Pack. A leader no one wants to follow. A flashy vessel hiding something unspeakable sacred and undeniably fragile. I am a monster; neither one thing, nor the other, belonging nowhere.”
Maria Vale, A Wolf Apart

“He tells me about human weddings, held inside or outside if the weather is mild. The couple wear clothes that are painfully uncomfortable and make their friends do the same. An officiant says a few words that neither party has really thought through—sickness and health, richer and poorer, better and worse—or at least don’t believe will be put to the test. Family and friends toast the couple, eat a little, drink too much, give vases, dance badly, and then run for the exits.”
Maria Vale, The Last Wolf

“Autumn.

The grace in letting dead things fall.”
Darnell Lamont Walker

“If I die, I will wait for you, do you understand? No matter how long. I will watch from beyond to make sure you live every year you have to its fullest, and then we’ll have so much to talk about when I see you again… (Bones)”
Jeaniene Frost

“To run with the wolf was to run in the shadows, the dark ray of life, survival and instinct. A fierceness that was both proud and lonely, a tearing, a howling, a hunger and thirst. Blessed are they who hunger and thirst. A strength that would die fighting, kicking, screaming, that wouldn't stop until the last breath had been wrung from its body. The will to take one's place in the world. To say 'I am here.' To say 'I am.”
O. R. Melling

Oh and about the water bugs? I spent my teenage years in South Carolina. Those are some serious water bugs!

Hey Janice, I don't know why I never quite see things in Goodreads. I guess I just don't spend enough time here, but I'm trying to be better. Anyway thank you so much! I can't believe the fourth volume is coming up for release!


Janice Loved that line about ....the pill the size of a waterbug. I've seen those rascally waterbugs, before.


Janice I'm sure I will, as I love stories about good guy/ good gal shifters. Have a great day.

Maria Vale I'm so glad, Janice. Keeping fingers crossed that you like it to the end!
Best,
Maria


Janice Thank you for friending me. I just started The Last Wolf, yesterday --after I found it at Barnes & Noble by accident-- and love it. Have a great day.
