Lost is Live on Kindle! I'm so excited to finally finish this book for everyone. I know it's been quite the wait, so I hope it's worth it.  Here's the cover and a synopsis:
     Maysie Baptiste is living her dream. She's married to the man of her dreams, she's pregnant and she's living among family and friends in a town where not only is she accepted, but she's loved and appreciated. The life of a werewolf isn't so bad now that the werewolf hunters have gone to ground. But when an old enemy comes back to get his revenge against Paskell and Ava and Cyrus are left heartbroken, Maysie knows that life is more precarious than she'd like to admit. With all of the havoc and pain, life still moves on though. A unique and scandalous mating threatens to tear families apart and Maysie and Gideon are left taking sides against friends. But in the end, when a predator starts to hunt Maysie, the only thing that stands between her and death is Gideon. But is Gideon strong enough to protect his family from the most evil wolf Paskell has ever known?

 So there's this amazing blog called KJ's Book Nook. Like, I'm talking -incredible.  Yeah, I know there are tons of book blogs out there. And there are a ton of  great  book blogs out there.  I read a lot of them so I know.  But here's the thing about KJ's Book Nook that is so unique and flat out awesome.  She casts the characters for you from your favorite books.  And it's kind of a big deal because she's SPOT ON
     As a writer, I can clearly see these people in my mind and I'm aware that everyone see's what they want to see, but this chick, (amazingly psychic chick), is pulling these characters right out of my mind. Yesterday, I was actually blown away by how accurate she was. My mouth was literally hanging open.  
     So if you're a fan of my books, then you have to check this blog out. She just did a review of my book Taken, (thank you!!) and the casting is perfection. Holy. Cow. Gideon. My heart is still beating fast.  :)  So check it out and let me know what you think! Oh, and here's the link.

  My newest werewolf book, Taken is now LIVE! Seriously excited here. This is book 2 in the Chasing the Wolf Trilogy.  

   Maysie Baptiste is settling into married life and making a place for herself in Paskell with all the other werewolves, but when Zoe and Rory M'Guire come back to town with their hybrid, Eve, it sets off an explosive chain of events. At the same time, Harry and Sam's relationship is heating up and while Harry would love to talk commitment, Sam is positive being involved with an Alpha is a one-way road to disaster. But with Spartak still hunting werewolves, love might have to wait.

    Only available for Kindle on Amazon. Here's the link. Can't wait to hear what you think.

October 23, 2014

                Zoe sat up, breathing hard and blinking tears out of her eyes. She whipped her head around as her hands fisted in the blanket twisted around her. It was just another dream.  The same dream she’d been having for months now. Zoe closed her eyes and tried to breathe evenly but the images were too clear. And too heartbreaking.                 In her dream, Rory had Poppy by the hand and Kirk, their little boy in his arms. And they were walking away from her. Leaving her.  Zoe clenched her eyes shut and willed the nightmare away.  Every time she told Rory about the dream, he laughed it off, but she knew there was more to it.                Zoe stood up, wrapping the blanket around her shoulders and headed for their small kitchen.  She grabbed a glass of water and took a long sip and wondered for the tenth time that day if she should talk to someone. She set the glass down and glanced at the laptop on the table. There was one person she could talk to who would understand.  Ava Carlston. They were friends. They were both werewolves. And they were both pregnant. Maybe Ava had been having wacky dreams too?                  Zoe sat down, feeling much better and clicked on her emails.  She blinked in surprise at the thirty unread messages. She had been tired lately, she thought as she glanced around the messy house.  She’d been letting a few things go. Laundry and emails being at the top of the list.  She clicked on a few and then skipped down to the one with Ava’s name. It was dated two days ago.                Cyrus read a group text off one of the cellphones taken from one of the werewolf hunters. It said that they’ve found a redheaded Irish werewolf to take. It mentioned that the werewolf’s ex-wife made a deal with Spartak for his address. They could be talking about Rory. Zoe, get your family and get out of there. Today.                Zoe stared at the screen with grim eyes as her hands fisted by her sides. She’d been getting emails about werewolf hunters from Ava for over a month and she hadn’t paid too much attention to them. Who in their right mind would want any of Ireland’s werewolves? She adored the little pack in Ballybrit but the idea of anyone wanting to use any of the elderly men to form a hybrid pack was laughable. But this was different. Rory was now a target.                Zoe looked down at her large, distended stomach, a wave of fear crashing through her as she leaped from her chair and raced through their small home to the bedroom where her three year old son, Kirk lay taking a nap. She leaned in the doorway, her heart pounding and then closed her eyes as she fought the panic. What would she do without Rory? He was the only person in her whole life who had ever truly loved her. Her father had abused her and her mother shamelessly. The men in her town had taken advantage of her and looked down on her. But Rory had taken one look at her and seen things she hadn’t even realized were there. She didn’t know how to exist anymore without his love. She hurried back to the desk and grabbed her cell phone, running her hands through her hair nervously as she waited for Rory to pick up.                “How did you know I was thinking of you, Darlin’,” Rory said and Zoe immediately relaxed.                 “Rory, come home right now. Tell them you’re sick, tell them anything, but just come home as fast as you can. Don’t talk to anyone. Especially if they’re a stranger and they have a Russian accent,” she blurted out as she paced her small kitchen.                 Rory’s laughter made her teeth clench. She loved that Rory was so laid back and easy going, but at times like this, not so much.                 “I promised I’d pick you up some ice cream on the way home from work tonight. I always keep my word, Zoe. I can’t just leave work all the time to run to the store for you.”                Zoe stopped in her tracks and stared at her phone, praying for patience. “Rory, so help me if you don’t stop patronizing me . . . this is deadly serious. We’re in danger. You’re in danger. If I don’t see you walking through the door in twenty minutes, I’m coming to get you,” she said in a harsh low voice that only shook slightly.                 There was a pause on the phone before she heard Rory’s voice again. “I’ll be there in fifteen,” he said and hung up.                 Zoe closed her eyes and let out a breath in relief. She had to think. She had to protect her family. In most traditional werewolf families, the man was the alpha in the relationship, but she was the alpha here in her home and in Ballybrit. It was up to her to protect the people she loved. She checked on Kirk one more time before walking out her backdoor and changing seamlessly into a wolf. She jumped into a run and ran circles around their home and property looking for any scent that seemed out of the ordinary or strange.                 She paused by the small creek that ran behind their house and paused as she caught the whiff of a dark and heavy smelling cologne. Rory never wore any. Her nose was so sensitive to smells she couldn’t take it. She paused and scanned the area around her home. Someone had been here within the last day or two. Someone had been watching them. Fear arced through her back and nerve endings as the realization that Ava had been right crashed over her.                 They were being hunted.                 Or at least Rory was. Rage, dark and unholy filled her heart as she slowly tracked the scent around the woods that surrounded her house on two sides. She went slowly as she followed the scent until it grew so strong, it filled her head. She paused as she saw a tent set up where no tent should be. She watched as a man walked out of the tent, with a thick, half-burned cigar in his mouth and a gun in his hand. Her mouth pulled back in an automatic snarl as she watched the man talk animatedly on the phone.                 “Yes, I’ve been watching them for days. The man is ridiculous though. I don’t know why we’re going through so much trouble to take him. He’s long and lanky, I’ll give you that, but if you want to breed this guy, I’d rethink that. The other wolves you’re scouting in France and Scotland are a better bet.”                Zoe froze as she watched the man pause and flick ash onto a large rock. “Fine, you’re the one paying the bills. I’m just the one who delivers. I’ll take him tonight and have him to Russia by tomorrow. What about the woman? The black haired woman I told you about? I don’t think she’s a werewolf but she’s pregnant with his baby. I could grab the two kids and you could have fun with them anyways.”                Zoe felt her body twitch with rage as the man sighed. “Excellent, I love bonuses. I’ll check in with you tonight after I have them.”                She watched as the man laughed and slipped his phone in his pocket. He blew a large smoke ring and then smiled. “Life is good,” he said out loud to himself with a large goofy smile on his face.                 Zoe stepped out of the shadows and walked toward him, her mouth lifted, showing her fangs as the snarl rose in her throat. The man saw her immediately and reached for the gun he’d slipped in his pocket. Zoe leaped forward, taking the man down to his back so fast that his head bounced off the ground before the air was filled with his shrieks of terror.                 Zoe began to rip the man apart, ignoring his screams of pain as the threat to her family filled her head with rage. She ripped and tore and bit until she was exhausted. As she stepped back, panting, she realized that there was hardly anything left of the man. She glanced around the forest and knew the forest animals would take care of what was left of his body. The tent though, would be a problem.                 She changed into her human form and wiped the blood from her mouth as she bent over and picked up the phone off the ground. She hit the button and looked at the last call made. She swiped to text and wrote:                  The man you sent won’t be coming back. Keeping coming for us and I’ll come for you ,she wrote and then hit send.                 She threw the phone as hard as she could and then went to work taking down the tent. She took the money out of the man’s wallet and smiled at the credit card.                 “Thanks buddy. You’re paying for our little vacation to Canada,” she said lightly and walked out of the forest.                 It was time for a nap, she thought as she walked towards the house. She smiled as she saw Rory’s car. He’d be so excited to see all of their old friends again.                 She walked in and smiled as Rory walked toward her, looking worried.                 “Zoe? Is that blood on your mouth?” he asked faintly, looking at her with distaste and horror on his face.                 She wiped her mouth with the back of her hand and smiled cheerily. “Just taking care of a little pest,” she said breezily and then sat down.                 Rory stepped back from her and glanced down the hallway towards Kirk’s bedroom. “I’m just going to go check on Kirk,” he said and hurried down the hallway.                Zoe frowned after him and licked her lips, enjoying the taste of blood. Rory had looked at her as if he was scared that she’d hurt their baby. She snorted and kicked her feet up. No, she’d never hurt her family. But if someone ever tried to hurt her family? She would have no problem taking care of them.
                No problem at all.

Hi Friends!
It's been a while since I've written, but I had to let you know that Werewolf Revenge is FREE right now on Kindle until September 6th - so grab it and tell your friends about it.  Here's the link.

Ava has escaped from Paskell, but when she meets her new little brother Finn, their connection is unbreakable. So when he's taken by an unknown kidnapper, she has a choice: Stay safe, or go home. Being a werewolf has some advantages, but nothing can protect her heart from seeing Cyrus again. Will revenge destroy her family, or bring her back full circle. 

And here are some reviews:  
Most Helpful Customer Reviews2 of 2 people found the following review helpful5.0 out of 5 stars  Truly enjoyed It!  October 8, 2013By LynnsieFormat:Kindle Edition|Verified PurchaseAfter reading the first 2 books, I was really looking forward to this one and I wasn't disappointed. Ava has moved to a secret location and not even her father knows where she is in an effort to heal and recover from Cyrus' rejection. She's got to rebuild her life and she manages to do exactly that in Ireland. During the time she is gone, her father has married and she has a new baby brother, and its the baby that starts to tear down the walls she's built to protect herself from additional hurt. She finally tells her father where she is and he, his wife Perry and Baby Finn come to visit her. Once they leave and go back home, she's content until she wakes with a foreboding feeling and immediately calls her father to find out that Finn has been kidnapped. Only for Finn would she fly home and have to endure being around Cyrus, but she has to help find Finn. Cyrus is determined to break down the walls of her heart and get her back, but its an uphill climb. Again, the story can stand all on its own and has sexual tension without all the porn most of the shifter/werewolf stories have. Completely enjoyed this series and will be rereading it a few times. Keep up the great work Katie!!!Comment |

4 of 5 stars
bookshelves: werewolves, lost-love, read-2013, romance-green, read-2014

Read from October 25, 2013 to July 06, 2014

This one was great. It picks up about a year and a half after the last book ends, which was nice. The last book had a lot of drama and Ava really went through the ringer. I was glad she was able to escape and take the time to really heal. She is in hiding in Ireland and finally happy again. She's at a good place and ready to reconnect with her dad and meet her new little brother. Nothing is ever easy when it comes to the town of Paskell and soon Ava finds herself hurrying back to the one place she doesn't want to go.

I love lost-love stories, they are one of my favorite plots so I loved seeing Ava and Cyrus reunited. While I thought Cyrus made a poor decision in the last book, I could understand why he did it. He had really been through a lot and I think he was just pushed over the edge. It was nice to see how much he suffered having Ava out of his life for almost two years (does that make me sound mean?). I think it was good for both of them. I liked that Ava didn't give right in and that they had to work to figure things out again.

There is of course some drama in this one and Ava is there to save the day once again. I thought this was a fun installment.Comment |

Hey Friends!
Summer is almost here - Yay! My favorite time to read a book. I love to grab a quilt and head to the park and find some shade and read while my kids play.  

  To get you started on the right foot, I'm giving everyone a Free Kindle copy of my book, Freak of Nature . This is the first book in my Lost Witch Trilogy and as you can guess from the title, it's about witches.  Here's the link.
   I also wanted to let you know how my latest werewolf book Hunted is doing.  It's doing great! Here's the link. Check out a few reviews:

Hey Friends!
   I'm so excited to FINALLY be able to tell you that Hunted is Live on Kindle. I'm a week late and I am so sorry about that, but better late than never, right? Now for those of you who are new to my little werewolf world, I wrote a series called Taming the Wolf that brought a little town called Paskell to life. That was the story of Ava Paskell and Cyrus Carlston. Well, five years has passed and a lot has changed. You'll have to read the book to see what I mean.  
   Now in my new series, Chasing the Wolf, you're going to meet the LaRouga family. They're from Louisiana and believe it or not, Werewolves in Louisiana are a big thing. They have a Creole word for Werewolves, the Rougaroug. The history is very rich there and so I couldn't resist pulling from that heritage. A Southern family in Canada? Yeah, that's going to be interesting.
Here's the little synopsis:
Maysie LaRouga is on the run. She has taken her younger brother and fled to Paskell, the only place on earth she might be safe from the werewolf hunter. Her mom, Sam LaRouga is trying to get him off their tail, but making it there is the easy part. It's falling in love with an Alpha that might be the death of her

If you're interested, head on over to Amazon.  Here's the link.

Hey Everybody!
Well, it's May 1st and even though my newest werewolf book, Hunted is done, it's not exactly . . . done. So yeah. Sorry about that.  But it's so close it's INSANE. Really.  Little bit more editing which I know you'll thank me for and bam - it'll be up on Kindle before you know it.  But since I'm feeling a little guilty *read a lot guilty* please accept this humble cover reveal in it's place. 
Thanks for being so patient with me!
- Katie
