Karen finally met the man of her dreams. The only problem?
He’s a Norse god. He’s trapped in a wolf’s body. And he’s hunting a dragon.
The Wolf’s Lover, my paranormal romance between a wildlife biologist in Yellowstone National Park and Loki’s son Vali, will be FREE for Valentine’s Day next week!
And making the promo material for its free run is reminding me of just how dang much I love this book.
Of all the female protagonists I’ve written, Karen is the closest to my heart. Okay, so I’m not a wildlife biologist studying wolves in Montana who falls for a Norse god, but we still share a lot of common traits… and not just the skiing.
I struggled with post-partum depression after both my children were born, and I’ve battled garden-variety depression off and on for my entire life. It was deeply cathartic to write those dark times into Karen’s story. Putting it into the context of battling a dragon was a nice touch, too. 😉
I like to think the book ended up being a love song to survival itself, to deciding that it’s worth pushing through tragedy and depression to see what’s waiting on the other side. That, ultimately, life is a decision worth making.
And hey, what better message for Valentine’s Day, right?
