When Total E-Bound posts open calls for submissions, they’re normally snapped up before I get a chance to look at the requirements. I’d been wanting to write something for one of their anthologies for a while now, so when I saw the call for a werewolf anthology, I jumped on it. I wrote the first two chapters of a m/m story that came to mind. A fun, quirky fantasy with wolves, a werewolf, and dark elves.
And then my editor said that for this collection, my story needed to be between a man and a woman.
I was stymied, because Anson’s story really worked. While his twin escaped into the forest, Anson was forced to throw a lock of his hair into the Living Wood and wait for his mate to come claim him, a mate who happened to be male. Twin escaped… My answer. Anson’s twin, the one who thought he’d escaped the matrimonial noose. It was Fenris’s time to play.
So I put Anson on the backburner and told Fenris’s story. Sexy men, kick-ass women, Wolves and Sorcerers and a Bear with attitude. Enemy Red has it all. Now I just have to find time to finish Anson’s story, before his dark lover takes it upon himself to write his own ending.
Rudra has no liking for the Silver Clan. Because of them her clan has been exiled from the Great Forest, thrust into humanity’s den. Her mother actually mated with a human, a sorcerer of great power. Though Rudra appreciates her magic and loves her parents dearly, she knows the dichotomy in her heritage will only make her more unwelcome by other wolves. Her plan to take back the land stolen from her clan is helped by the appearance of a strange wolf from the Silver Clan. But as the time passes, Rudra realizes she can’t use Fenris in her plans, not when her heart tells her that he’s more than special, he’s hers. She’ll have to decide what’s more important. Her clan, or her heart.
