In the depths of England, a Kingdom lurks beneath the confines of normality...

A hierarchy of supernaturals run by the deadly council fights daily to keep their world a secret from the humans that appear to rule the world. With the Magi's in control, the rest of the community must keep their heads down and do their duty – or face the ultimate penalty.

Shifters and Vampires have the hardest task of them all, fighting in the war against the Circle, a deadly band of rebels, practicing blood magic and capturing souls in their wake.

A day will come little wolf when you must decide which evil you fight for.

Tamriel Chambers, hard hitting journalist for the Kent News!... Or not.

Wishing her life away seems to be her main pass time these days, with a dead end job and a distinct lack of friends, Tam finds herself walking into danger for the thrill of an interesting story, for the chance of something new.

When a seriously sexy man stalks his way into her life (literally) she finds out not only just how different the world can be, but just how much she really didn't know about herself. Cue talk dark and handsome!

Leyth is a wolf with a viscous edge, tied to Tamriel because of his past. He just wants to get her through her change and leave her behind. When Tam gets more involved in his world than he expects, he faces the ultimate choice, does he risk everything for a half breed female, bring down the council and change the kingdom as they know it?

Or does he let her risk her life alone, and face a fate worse than death.

Slowly, carefully, Tam moved. Only an inch as she lowered herself to the ground and, in one painstaking movement, she knelt before the wolf.
Her knife was clipped to the side of her bra and her hands itched to reach for it, but she knew it was a bad idea. Currently the wolf was showing no signs of aggression and she didn’t want to spook him again.
As she looked into those beautiful grey eyes, she saw no anger, no malice. She saw fatigue, pain and confusion. She could read the emotions behind them like a book.
As she watched him, it seemed as though he was being as careful as she to move carefully. It was almost as if it were he who didn’t want to spook her rather than the other way around. He lowered his back end to the ground, shuffling a little awkwardly around his back leg. He then proceeded to lie down completely, resting his head on his paws, keeping his eyes still locked onto hers. It was as if he’d visibly given up.
Tam slowly edged forward. She must be absolutely crazy, knowing this was a vicious wild animal and that it could tear her apart easily. Yet her gut told her the wolf wasn’t going to hurt her.
She must be going mad. She was going to end up being that weird woman that was nearly killed by a wild wolf because she thought she could be friends with it.
And yet, this moment, this intense, terrifying, incredibly special moment, was one she would treasure for the rest of her life; one she would write about and talk of over and over again to friends, family and, maybe, one day her children.
The day mommy made friends with a wolf.

I am a born and bred wild child. (Or I like to think so anyway!)

I moved to sunny Folkestone UK to escape and find my feet as, well whatever I was destined to be! But alas, my short attention span made finding that destiny a little difficult! One day I came across a diary entry that made me laugh so hard; I actually fell off my chair. (Yes, this can happen!)

I decided that the entry was so funny; it needed to be shared with the world! So I started writing, and attempted to turn it into a novel. Though to this day, that novel remains unfinished, it will always be the novel that got me started, and showed me what I was passionate about.

Honestly? I have aspired to be everything from a Private Investigator to a Zoo Keeper with my career; my interests change so quickly that I could never stick with one! Writing gives me the freedom to choose; I can be a cold-hearted assassin in love with a poet one day and the secret lesbian lover of a politician the next!

All my life, I have had a strong, unwavering passion for anything supernatural, spiritual and slightly unexplainable, I love the idea that there can be something completely fantastical lurking beneath the confines of normality. So of course, mythical creatures of all shapes and sizes dominate most of my work!

In a nutshell, I am a creative crazy bean, living with my lovely husband and a house full of too many animals! I've always secretly wished I were a werewolf of some description, but have come to realise that I will have to settle for writing about them instead! I'm happiest in the sun with my head in a good book!
All I can say from here is I hope you like what you read!
