A Welsh Wolf in Wellington blog tour
Since most of Sasha’s story takes place in Wellington, the compact and thriving capital city of New Zealand. I though it would be fun to feature a different part of the city – especially those mentioned in the book – on each tour ‘stop’. Come and join me on a truly unique virtual tour of Wellington 🙂
Thorndon’s famous for containing the Beehive (the heart of the NZ government), the giant Westpac Stadium – the Caketin, as it’s affectionately known – and a whole swathe of foreign embassies. Despite all that, it retains a lovely village feel and is a mere ten minutes walk from the heart of the central business district.
Sasha chose to rent a house here not only because it was cheap, but because it backs onto a stretch of wild hills, essential for his wolf. Shifters need space. Freedom to run in their animal form, hunt a few rabbits, and to embrace their wolfiness. For Sasha, used to miles of open Welsh mountains to roam in, adapting to the smaller city space of Wellington was a challenge.
In this extract, Megan sees Sasha’s house for the first time:
Megan gazed up at the faded clapboard house. Sasha lived on a quiet street just a ten minute walk from the center of the city, in an area of town she’d always liked. “Thorndon has such a lovely village-feel, don’t you think?” Okay, she was making stupid small-talk. Would he guess she was nervous? From the way Sasha caught her hand and guided her up a narrow set of steps, perhaps not. He fished a key from underneath a stone, unlocked the door and ushered her into a dusty hallway, closing the door behind her.
Before she could say anything, he’d picked her up and carried her into a bedroom. Standing in the open doorway, he bent his head, stole a kiss and then grinned at her. “Carrying my gorgeous wife-to-be over the threshold. That’s right, isn’t it?”
He completely disarmed her. “You should stop calling me that. People might get the wrong idea.” She tried to sound severe, but being held like this, clinging to him and so very close, it was all doing strange things to her insides.
A Handful Of Wolf is available 25 November 2013, from Liquid Silver Books.
Sasha’s not a looking-to-the-future kind of guy, but he’s made an exception with his plans to travel and meet lots of pretty girls. Too bad his Pack Alpha, fate, and reality have other ideas about his trip abroad. He’s pretty sure he didn’t sign on to be a diplomat for the Snowdonia Wolf Pack. Or to find a Mate. Especially not a human Mate.
Megan knows better than to let a sweet-talking charmer get under her skin, but Sasha’s sexy playfulness is making her forget all her rules. Except one: she’s not willing to risk her heart by falling in love. The gorgeous boy from Wales can only be a fling, especially since her over-protective brothers hate him on sight.
In the midst of a wolf uprising, a hesitant Mate, and Megan’s complicated family ties, Sasha learns that sometimes impulsiveness is dangerous and even lethal. Can he show Megan why they belong together before it all comes crashing down around him and he loses his Mate forever?
