Her Wolf: The Westervelt Wolves Book 1 Releases

Well, it has finally happened.  The day I have been so anxiously awaiting and also nervously chewing my fingernails about has arrived.  Her Wolf: The Westervelt Wolves Book 1 releases today.  For the record, this is my very first book release ever. Up until now, it's just been a dream--something I thought and dreamt about--but didn't really believe could happen except now it is here.  

For the record, it is available today from Liquid Silver Books

From day one, I have received so much support both from the publisher and also from all of my friends and family, some of which I have never met face-to-face but without who's support I would not be doing this now.  (Ahem..Sandi, Annie, J. Hali, and Rae as well as too many others to name)  

So please let me say, thank you.  A million thank yous.  

Now let's talk about Her Wolf.   
Ashlee Morrison has a secret obsession—with a dark and mysterious male. The only problem is that he’s a wolf and she’s becoming convinced that she’s insane for thinking about him. But Ashlee’s wolf is no ordinary canine, he is Tristan Kane, third son in the royal family of the Westervelt Wolf pack. 

Trapped in his wolf form by his evil father’s men, he has desperately sought a way out of predicament and is shocked to find that the beautiful, sad red head who has come to the wolf cage cannot only hear him, but awakens in him the knowledge that she is his mate, the other half of his soul who he has sought for thirty years. 

Ashlee is unaware that she is half wolf-shifter but agrees to accompany Tristan back to his pack to seek answers to her past and understand her future. But as Tristan and Ashlee grow closer, familial betrayals will threaten to destroy the fragile love they have started to build. 
With the odds stacked against them, Ashlee and Tristan will either embrace their love to save the Westervelt Wolves or be lost forever to despair.

Here is an excerpt from Her Wolf:

“Do you think there are monsters, Ash?” 

Ashlee hadn’t known what to say. Something about her mother’s tone had made her more nervous than the monster movie with the chainsaw-wielding psycho killer. What was it? Thinking with her adult mind and not that of her younger self, Ashlee realized her mother had sounded anxious. Fourteen years later, Ashlee couldn’t remember ever hearing Victoria sound quite like that again. Summer had interrupted then; she was never satisfied until she had every answer she needed. 

“Do you, Mom? Do you believe?” 

Ashlee thought she knew what her mom would say. It was the job of grownups to reassure you, to tell you that nothing scary was real. 

“I do believe, girls. Some of the things that go bump in the night are real and we must always be on guard for them. But don’t worry, nothing will ever harm you here while I am with you.” 

The memory, like dust in the sky, floated out of her mind and Ashlee was back in the present with her decision already made for her. Why wasn’t it possible that Tristan could speak to her, even if he was a wolf? It wasn’t any more unreasonable than anything else. People believed in ghosts and no one called them crazy. Hell, she’d had a friend whose mother attended conferences about aliens. Declaring herself a lunatic hadn’t worked out so well, maybe it was time to try a different approach.

Just for tonight, she would believe. 

Tristan was a talking wolf and she was going to save him from the men who were out to get him.


I hope I've given you enough of a taste that you are now interested in reading Her Wolf and the subsequent Westervelt Wolf books to follow.  

Thank you, everyone, for your love and support.  This day couldn't have happened without you.  

Rebecca Royce.  

Also, Happy Fourth Birthday, my darling. Mommy loves you more than you'll ever know.  Daddy and I can't believe how grown up you are.
