It’s available in many places, including:
You can read an excerpt here. This is a Norther Shifters story.
In one week, Running Free will be available. It’s been a little while since I’ve had a book out, so I’m excited. I’ve had a couple of nice reviews at Fresh Fiction and Sensual Reads. For any Anchor readers, this tells Sally’s story and includes a visit to Wolf Town.
While I know not all my readers cross over to my Joely Skye books, Running Wild, which is twinned with Running Free (the heroes in each book are twin horse shifters), got four stars at RT Book Reviews. (This fourth book in Skye’s Northern Shifters series is absolutely adorable… The slow-build romance will keep you flipping pages to see what happens next…)
I’ve also put up an excerpt here. It’s the opening scene of the book.
The pup had disappeared. Again. Honest to God, thought Zach, these moon-run outings were going to be the death of him.
Storm was too young to be out and about on his own, and Zach was too big and, well, too much of a horse to scrabble under the bushes. He had to go around, and while he had a pretty good idea of where Storm was headed—the pup being fond of the clearing in the middle of the small woods—Zach didn’t like not knowing exactly where Storm was at all times.
There were coyotes out here, and a werewolf pup should be running with older wolves, not on his own. Or should be running with his horse guardian—if only the pup’s mind didn’t forget that important fact the moment the moon called to him.
The damn thing shone overhead, lighting Zach’s way. The wet snow was deep tonight. Not a problem for Zach’s long legs, but a struggle for a small body. Storm would be clumsy and slow in the snow, oversized paws almost flapping. A sitting duck if anything were to attack the child.
Zach knew how it would go. Soon Storm would stop and look around and wonder where Zach was, wonder why a large horse hadn’t been able to follow him under brush. Then he’d be sorry he’d run off, sad he’d disobeyed. He’d been distracted by the smell of rabbit or something, but he’d end up by himself, shivering or yipping forlornly at the moon.
Trying to make Storm’s time alone as short as possible, Zach moved faster. Five more minutes max, he hoped. There had to be a better way to run under the moon than this. The hell of it was, though, he couldn’t quite figure it out.
As he cornered the last bend of the path, the entrance to the clearing came within view—and a scent brought him up short. Despite his urgent desire to find Storm, Zach plowed to a stop and breathed in hard to identify the smell of danger—of wolf. Wolf, adult and male. All Zach’s senses went on high alert. He wasn’t able to discern whether the scent meant wolf or werewolf, and he didn’t care. He didn’t trust either creature. He didn’t trust wolves, period.
So to give you a sense of the story, here’s the cover copy. Very excited about this one!
She is the one wolf who can tame his feral spirit
A Northern Shifters story
A year and a half ago, if someone had told Zach that he’d be guardian to the creature he distrusts most—a wolf shifter—he’d have laughed. A half-broken horse shifter as father figure? No way.
Now, he’d kill to protect the pup he found lost in the woods—and he has. Which, unfortunately, has attracted the attention of Wolf Town’s alpha.
Sally prefers to keep a low profile among her fellow shifters in Wolf Town. Yet when she’s asked to investigate a pup living outside the safety of the pack, she can’t bring herself to refuse.
From the moment Zach meets the new piano teacher, his world tilts. Her scent gets under his skin. Her touch retrieves missing pieces of his memory. But even as their blazing attraction flares out of control, trust is the hardest to give, and the one thing they both need if they’re to save the boy from another attack.
I have a new book out today, under my alter ego’s name, Joely Skye. It’s entitled Running Wild and features a horse shifter.
I’m actually on the home stretch of a related book, a Jorrie Spencer book, Running Free. In Running Wild one of the heroes has a long-lost brother, a horse shifter who stars in the next book. If you read Anchor, well, you’ll see a bit of Angus and Mala and Rory, but the heroine of Running Free is Sally (who made a brief appearance in Anchor). Running Free will be out next February, and that will conclude my Northern Shifters horse-shifter duet :)
