May all your Christmas wolves be bright…

Romance writer Candice Mayfair never missed a deadline in her life—until the playful bite of a werewolf puppy accidentally turns her into an Arctic wolf shifter. Talk about a life-changing event! Candice is at the end of her rope with the unpredictable shifting, a strong desire to howl, and the need to vacuum constantly to keep the shedding fur under control.

Enter werewolf private investigator Owen Nottingham. Owen has a new mission: convince the pretty she-wolf she needs to join his pack in time for Christmas…and be his mate. It’s the only way he can think of to keep her safe…


 

How does an Arctic wolf pack celebrate the holidays?

Christmas is all about family, especially when it has to do with a wolf pack. The Arctic wolf pack is no exception. The bachelor wolves and the one mated male wolf take delight in putting on the best Christmas light display in a friendly competition. It makes the woods and lake magical as the Christmas lights sparkle and illuminate the night. Especially when it’s snowing too. Just like a perfect Christmas greeting card.

Baked goods and plenty of cheer is part of the Christmas holidays for them. Opening Christmas presents at the pack leaders’ home and having Christmas dinner there, and Christmas Eve dinner at one of the bachelor male’s homes, is all part of the tradition.

In the beginning, I was the only one in my family that sewed. I loved embroidering, cross-stitching, and rug hooking. I loved getting needlework pictures and pillowcases to embroider when I was a kid. They were some of my favorite Christmas presents.

My mother had an old Kenmore sewing machine that was horrible to sew on, so when I took home economics in junior high they had Singer sewing machines. Oh my gosh, what a world of difference they made! I had to sew two dresses, and had to wear one for a fashion show. I think I was the only one in class who didn’t have a mother who sewed, which meant I was strictly on my own, while the other girls took their projects home so their mothers could help them with them. Not me!

Years later, my folks had received tons of needlepoint I’d sent them. Quilts, hand-hooked rugs, and other embroidery projects. After a while, no one had any room for them! I began making cloth dolls and rabbits to sell at crafts fairs. My parents had started to create fancy doll carriages and other furniture for doll collectors, and they asked me to make an old-time teddy bear to display on their furniture.

That was the beginning. My first bears sold at the Dallas Trade Center to shops all over. They’ve been featured in magazines including: Texas Monthly, Texas Co-op Monthly, Teddy Bear Review Magazine, The MacNeill Galley, and newspapers. They were included in The International Teddy Bear Connection.
