I hadn’t seen Dane McDeglin to speak to since I was six. Twelve long years. Not since my tomboy days when I used to sneak over the fence into the gypsy campsite, and tag along with his gang of gypsy boys.
At twenty-three he was even more devastating. Over six foot and with a body worthy of a bare knuckle champion. Successful businessman to boot.
Yes, I was badly smitten – I always had been – and he seemed to like me at first.
But nothing could have prepared me for the way our past history would rise up and sucker-punch what we felt for each other.

Sturdy but graceful with their flowing manes and tails, and their feathered legs. When I earn enough as a writer I am going to buy the field next to my house and have one of these glorious creatures come and live with me. Video by Mark J. Barratt. Thank you, Mark!

Waking the Wolf can be read as a stand-alone full length novel although it does have some of the same characters as the series First Time at Forty.
With looks to die for and a moody temperament, Jean-Luc du Lamond is the Director of the French government's wolf conservation program in the National Park of Alcantour, in the French Alps. His fiancée left him three years earlier for a better job in England, complaining that he spent more time with the wolves than with her. True, he loves his wolves, but she didn't do him justice. Beneath his disgruntlement with womankind, lies a deep and passionate nature.
Sylvie Latour is a twenty-one-year old from Clarksville, Mississippi. A recently qualified veterinarian, she is sent on a six-month placement to the wolf project in France at the beginning of the European winter. She arrives to find the wolves are under threat from illegal hunting. She has had her own heartbreak and is as wary of romantic involvement as Jean-Luc is.
Right from the start, they rub each other up the wrong way. Repulsed and attracted by each other at the same time, they run the risk of missing out on what could be. This personal antagonism affects their professional relationship, and threatens the success of their mission to protect the wolves.
Will they be able to put aside their differences and co-operate to hunt down the poachers, and perhaps learn to like each other along the way?
17 plus – The sex and love scenes, set against a backdrop of cruel winter beauty and man’s inhumanity to the wolves of Alcantour, are an integral part of the love story and serve to enrich the reader’s romantic and sensual experience.
