Be careful what you wish for, because magic is always two parts wondrous, one part cruel.
Book 1 of 9 in the Bride of the Harvest Wolf series
Reckless wild-child Sienna Kendrick has longed for one thing since she was fourteen—the attention of Thomas Zurent, the dashingly handsome son of the town’s wealthiest founding family. And on the night of the New Grand Cycle festival when this plucky weaver’s daughter turns seventeen she gets exactly what she desires. But is Thomas’ attention truly what Sienna wants? Or is she concealing a yearning within her heart for something darker—something taboo—something forbidden?
The hour has come, the clock has struck fourteen, and per ancient accord, the thirty-sixth bride of the Harvest Wolf is about to be selected. But will she be his beloved…or his dinner?

Interview with the Author
Q - So, what makes the Bride of the Harvest Wolf series special?
A - Well for one, the series is a young adult shifter bride romance featuring a strong female protagonist, and an Indigenous (Native) male protagonist who is also a shapeshifter wolf deity. It’s a be-careful-what-you-wish-for story about two characters who both long to leave their homes and explore the greater world, and who suffer disastrous consequences as a result of their desires. But mostly this shapeshifter series is different because it combines fairytales such as Beauty and the Beast, and Red Riding Hood, with mythology and folk tales from around the world, and weaves them into a narrative that is both familiar and yet part of a completely new fantasy world.
Q - So, why should readers give this series a try?
A - If you’re looking for something a bit different with diverse protagonists, original mythology and fantasy world building, and a romantic adventure, than this young adult coming of age fantasy is the shifter romance series you’ve been looking for.
And thanks for reading!
