Spotlight #NewRelease "Caleb" by Kate Hill

Please make welcome the lovely Kate Hill to the tavern! We're celebrating her new book release, Caleb. I'm already intrigued by the cover of this paranormal shifter book, so grab a cup of cider or mead and let's take a peek at Kate's new story...

I'm a powerful and respected Alpha, but the wolf Mette covets my leadership. I'm injured when my conniving enemy challenges me.

After losing my pack and nearly my life, I go to lick my wounds in the human world, but my beloved mate Tia knows that a wolf's broken spirit can heal, and there is only one true leader of our pack.

Note: Caleb is a very short werewolf action romance story with a mild heat level, moderate violence, and a HEA. This Romantic Moments story is the perfect length for a lunch break, before bed, or any time you want a quick, romantic read.

Sneak preview from Caleb ~

Reaching the village, Tia shouted to the nearest wolf to bring the healer.

Finally we made it to our cabin where I collapsed on our bed. Tia brought a cup of water and lifted my head to help me drink. Gazing at her, I realized how much I loved her and how much of a risk she'd taken by becoming my mate.

An aggressive howl echoed from the clearing near our cabin. This wasn't just any howl, but one of challenge for leadership of our pack.

Tia's horrified, furious gaze met mine and she whispered, "Mette." Then she snarled through clenched teeth. "The coward!"

I'd only known real fear at one other time in my life—the day Tia and I had been attacked by hunters and she'd been lost. My fear now mingled with regret. I'd promised her a happy life, but we were about to lose it and there was nothing I could do about it.

Drawing a long breath, I painfully pushed myself to a sitting position.

"You don't actually intend to fight him?" Tia demanded.

"I have to."
