Bestselling author Lucy Monroe returns to her hugely popular paranormal world where a woman falls under the spell of the beast who is her one true enemy... 

Barr never asked to be made laird over the struggling Donegal clan, or leader of its werewolf pack. But he'll do his duty and although he hasn’t yet found his mate, he hopes she will be among his people. He expects his new role to be difficult; he doesn't expect to discover a naked woman in the forest whose memory is as fragile as her human body—her delectable, all too appealing body. Could this woman be his true mate?                                                                                                             On a mission to save her people from extinction, Sabrine pretends she has no memory in order to gain access to her enemy: the Donegal clan. A raven shifter, she is determined to retrieve the sacred stone that rightfully belongs to her people. But soon she’ll be engulfed in her burning desire and growing love for Barr—and the dangerous and inescapable secrets destined to keep them apart...

If it were up to him, Talorc—laird of the Sinclair clan and leader of his werewolf pack— would never marry. But when the king orders that Talorc wed an Englishwoman, the lone wolf is shocked to find his mate in the strong-willed Abigail. And after an intensely climactic wedding night, the two fiercely independent souls sense an unbreakable bond...

Deaf since childhood, Abigail hopes to keep her affliction from Talorc as long as possible. And for his part, he has no intention of telling her about being a werewolf. But when Abigail learns that the husband she's begun to love has deceived her, it will take all of his warrior's strength—and his wolf's cunning—to win his wife back. And Talorc will have to face his biggest challenge yet: the vulnerability of a man in love...

Am I a Writer?

So many said things like, "It could have been better." or "I hate my own writing." or "I'm just sick of the story at this point." It wasn't because they didn't/don't love what they do, it was that the finished product never matched what they saw inside their imaginations. Even Nora Roberts said what ends up on the page is never as good as what's in her head (or something like that).

I realized that the translation from the brain to the book will never be perfect, but if these amazingly talented women could keep on keeping on, then so must I.

The truth is, many of us feel like impostors at one time or another in our lives.  And I'm convinced creative types experience this even more frequently than our more pragmatic neighbors.  The phenomenon and what to do to overcome it is discussed in this article.  I highly recommend reading it if you've ever felt like everyone else "gets it" and you don't or that you aren't who everyone seems to think you are.

My takeaway from it was to as my husband to eloquently put it, "Give yourself more credit because I do!"

Here's to believing in ourselves and our dreams.

Hugs and happy reading (or writing as the case may be),
