Cat got your tongue?
The historic landlocked paddle-wheeler Tessa Williams spots in Haines, Alaska, strikes her as the perfect location for an Eco-tour B&B. When the owner refuses to sell, though, she’s sure a little in-person charm is all that’s needed. What she finds is a handsome wolf who greets her with a scalding hot kiss followed by the announcement that they’re mates. But she’s a cat…and cats don’t do insta-mates.
Local wolf-slash-owner of said vessel, Mark Weaver, isn’t hanging on to the landmark building out of spite. There are more reasons for holding back the sale than are easily explained on paper. The sexual attraction between them isn’t in question, just everything else. He wants her. She wants twue wuv. His wolf can’t figure out what the holdup is. Her cat thinks the entire situation, and the pack, are rather amusing.
Somewhere in here is the beginning of a beautiful relationship—if they don’t drive each other mad.
Warning: One hyper cat, one laid-back wolf. Inappropriate use of permanent markers, and a heaping side dish of cat/dog jokes. Shenanigans (read: nookie) in front of a roaring fire. Spiced liberally with sarcasm. Enjoy!
The NORTHERN LIGHTS EDITION is a revised and extended version of the 2013 original.
Tessa might not have very good sea legs but she knows a solid business idea when she sees it and the converted paddle steamer in Alaska is her ticket to success. All Tessa needs to do is convince owner Mark that he really should sell it to her. He's cute for a wolf with an unusual way of greeting strangers but maybe that amazing welcome is just local custom? Or maybe not because Mark and his inner wolf have just smelt their mate and it's not a fellow wolf, it's a rather tasty cougar!
Wolf Nip is quite short but didn't suffer because it's fast paced, likable, and fun to read. Tessa is without a doubt a live wire that keeps Mark on his toes but he's just so patient and determined to woo Tessa. Wolves know when they meet 'the one' but cat shifters are very different. Tessa needs to feel love so Mark is going to have his work cut out keeping control over his very keen wolf. In a side note, I loved that Mark's grandfather was introduced as it added a realistic dimension to everything that was going on.
This voluntary take is of an advance copy and my thoughts and opinions are honest and I believe fair.
