Portrait of a Lone Wolf coming February 20th!

Portrait of a Lone Wolf won't be released until February 20th, but the first reviews are great and I want to brag a little. Mostly because I don't have another blog post ready to go!

Portrait of a Lone Wolf is book 7 in Decadent Publishing’s multi-author series, Black Hills Wolves. This book is my first contribution to the Black Hills Wolves series. I have a second book coming soon.

A mixed-blood Native American wolf-shifter, abandoned by a teenage mother and ignored by an absentee father, Rio Waya has never fit in or felt worthy of love. But when he comes home to the Black Hills, he realizes he wants a mate of his own. 

Recovering from a cheating ex who started a new family behind her back, Sela L√≥pez seeks escape to pull her life back together. As a documentary filmmaker and wildlife photographer, she rents a cabin in the Black Hills with plans to film the beleaguered wolf population. But she’s so busy looking through a camera lens she doesn’t see trouble coming. 

Sparks fly as mutual fears and vulnerabilities surface when Sela and Rio meet. She can’t figure out why the mysterious Mr. Waya is so anxious about having a documentary made of the Black Hills Wolves. But when his secret is exposed, all hell breaks loose. Can Rio win Sela’s trust and soothe her fears about allowing a hunky wolf-shifter into her heart? 

Here are two new reviews. It's always a relief to get those first reviews in. Then I can breath.

First off I have to admit that this is the first book I've read from this author and I can honestly say it won't be the last book. In fact I've already bought 5 other books from this author today off Amazon. I highly recommend that if you haven't given this author a try that you do so now. This is a good book to start with!!! 

Ms. Leon has a wonderfully smooth way of writing that just snaps you up and holds on tight. You literally feel what each character is going through.

Now about the book alone - I loved Rio best. I also love that he is Native American. He sounds so hot looking and he was so lonely and vulnerable. He had always felt that way and was at the stage in his life now that he had pretty much given up on the idea that he would have anyone to share his life with. But he wasn't bitter about it. He was strong and accepted that as something he was going to have to live with. Then he meets Sela who just rocks his world and beliefs. Suddenly he had a chance at happiness and love. It's so sweet how he keeps trying to get close to her but goes the wrong way about it. My favorite part of the book is when he's shifted into a wolf and is hamming it up for her. It's so funny when he gets caught shifting.

Sela is a great character also. She's strong but also vulnerable. She's been hurt deeply and isn't looking for love or sure she can trust again. Then Rio comes along. She can feel that he's as lost and lonely as she is and can't help but let him in. It also doesn't hurt that he's hot and she can't help but be attracted to him. I liked how she was scared but didn't panic or start screaming when she finds out what he is. 

I find it so cute that they have the same last name only in different languages. Waya means wolf and Lopez means wolf. It's like the fates had lined them up just for each other. Super cute. I also want to say that the cover of the book is great. The guy is hot. 

I loved the book. The only thing I wish was different about the book would have to be that it was longer. I would've liked to know more about them. This is a really good book.
I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good paranormal romance to read.
