When I first heard about the Black Hills Wolves, one aspect really struck me. I mean, the series as a whole really appealed to me, but one particular bit hooked me more than the rest. It was that Drew would be giving this pack a fresh start. Since my family had just moved halfway across the country to embrace our own fresh start, I really connected with the idea. When I started writing my story, I wanted to make sure I held true to that desire. Everybody needs to have a fresh start from time to time in his or her life. Even if everything is smooth sailing. It opens new doors and provides excitement, and—as my characters probably realize—some stress and growing pains.
Aimee Crest is the prissiest, most stuck-up Wolf Jackson Cooper has ever met. The woman has a temper that would send sailors running and enough emotional baggage to keep a shrink in business for a lifetime. A Wolf would do well to steer clear of her. And Jackson would be happy to do just that—if it weren’t for one little thing that makes her irresistible to him. She’s his mate.
It’s a fate Aimee didn’t ask for and one she’s not at all happy about. She doesn’t want a mate. More to the point, she refuses to accept one. Even if that mate happens to be tall, muscular, and damn good with his hands. He won’t be able to seduce his way into her heart. She won’t let him.
But in this battle of wills, there is no middle ground. Somebody is going to have to surrender.

But she’s found that sometimes, like when you’re stuck inside because of a good old-fashioned Southwestern heat wave, you have to make do.

Also, you’re a lot less likely to spill your ice tea.
