From the Author
Have you ever visited a place and immediately sensed something special about it? Something different than any other place you'd been before. A uniqueness that had nothing to do with the beauty of the scenery but everything to do with what you couldn't see? I have. I know others have, too. There are books written about the world's sacred places, where people sense spirits lingering in the atmosphere or an underlying mystical aura that reaches deep into their hearts.
In THE LURE OF THE WOLF, I created such a place and called it Spirit Wind Mountain. Amid the mists and the wind, there are restless spirits hovering between this world and the next. And once upon a time, ancient people gathered to worship. It is a place full of mystical power that plays a very important role in my story. If you have ever experienced a place like this, I would love to know about it. So please make a comment on my website jenniferstgiles.com or on Facebook at or Tweet me at @jenniferstgiles.
For readers who didn't read the revamped version of TOUCH A DARK WOLF, I made some subtle changes to the Shadowmen lore. When I first wrote this story, I had to take out certain elements because the original publisher felt readers wouldn't want them. One particular element was the reasoning behind people with "special" blood and what that might mean to the evil forces we all know exist both in this world and in the spirit world beyond. So as I reworked this story to release on my own, I went in and added that element. What I previously had to call Elan, those with special blood, I could go back to calling Chosen. I could now explain that the Chosen were the descendants of King Solomon and his seven hundred wives and three hundred concubines from many nationalities that scattered to the ends of the earth upon his death. The bloodline from which King Solomon came had been blessed, so in the paranormal world I built, I made that blood special and created an evil that craved the blessed blood for its power. I hope you enjoy the changes I made. To me it adds fullness to the story and comes so much closer to the tale I wanted to tell so many years ago.
Reasons do matter.
It takes only one good man or woman to stand firm to keep evil from filling the void. Happy Reading! --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

The one thing that lowered my rating was the percentage of sex scenes compared to story. I felt there were way too many pages devoted to sex. It slowed the story and annoyed me to the point of wanting to strangle the hero and heroine. I know the trend is for graphic sex in paranormal romances, and I am fine with that. This author writes sex scenes very well, but sometimes less is more. When the hero and heroine need to leave while it is raining to prevent the villains from tracking them, but they HAVE to put off leaving because they HAVE to get it on one more time, and consequently miss their window of opportunity for an easy escape, I want to throw the virtual book across the room. I found myself skipping pages and pages of sex, just to get back to the story.
Some readers do want a lot of hot sex in their books, so my opinion might be in the minority. I have mixed feelings about continuing with the series. If the next books, some of which are already published, have this much sex, I know I will be annoyed. I liked everything else, though, and would like to read more of the series. Decisions, Decisions!
I recommend this series to anyone who likes a lot of sex in their paranormals. I also recommend it to those who have no problem skipping the sex scenes if they become too frequent and too long.
