Happy New Year! I'm thrilled to have a brand new Love Inspired book out this month. ALASKAN SANCTUARY was a great joy to write. It takes place on a wolf sanctuary. My son lives in Denver, Colorado, and on a visit last summer, my family went to the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center in Divide and got to hang out with some amazing animals.
The entire time I was there, I kept thinking, "Wow, this would be such a great setting for a book." So I just kind of moved it to Alaska, where all my books for Love Inspired take place. (What? I can do that. I'm in charge of that fictitious town! And there are totally wolves in Alaska.)
Wolves are incredible creatures. They're often misunderstood, which is why they're currently listed on the endangered species list. I was honored to write about such beautiful animals and incorporate their story into my hero and heroine's romance in ALASKAN SANCTUARY.
Here's a bit about the book:
Piper Quinn is fighting for the future of her wolf sanctuary. A painful childhood has taught her to be more comfortable with animals than humans—especially the beautiful wolves of Aurora, Alaska. So when reporter Ethan Hale arrives to cover her struggling shelter—and deems the wolves a danger to the community—she's ready to prove him wrong. A former park ranger, Ethan's seen just enough tragedy to support his claim. Soon their difference of opinion is front-page news. And Piper and Ethan must reconcile their opposing views with their stubborn hearts that are quickly finding refuge in each other.
ALASKAN SANCTUARY is available on Amazon, at Harlequin and lots of other places. Visit my website for more info.
