But love wasn’t supposed to play a part.
Please share your favorite quote:
Oh gosh, that’s so hard to choose! Probably when Maverick tells Sierra,
“Do with me as you wish, warrior.”
It’s such an emotionally charged moment!
Please share a few Fun facts about this book…
- There’s a critical scene in Fierce Cowboy Wolf that’s set in a cavern on the pack’s ranch lands. The setting is based on a real-life cavern adventure I took to Tuckaleechee Caverns near Gatlinburg Tennessee.
- The tunnel system hidden beneath Wolf Pack Run (the Grey Wolves’ ranch), which hero and packmaster Maverick, uses in Fierce Cowboy Wolf was loosely inspired by the hidden passages Derek Craven uses in his mansion/gambling hell in Lisa Kleyas’ Dreaming of You, one of my favorite classic romance novels.
- Since the heroine of Fierce Cowboy Wolf, Sierra, is a fierce female warrior (the first of her pack’s kind), there are subtle, hidden nods in her point-of-view to real life feminist warriors like the late justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
What do you want people to take away from reading this book?
That it’s okay for women to be fierce and wild and to take what they need. That sometimes our path to success may not look like we intended it, but the eventual victory is still as sweet, and that true heroes are the men who know how to quietly support the people they love as full equals without want/need of recognition.
Thanks for blogging at HJ!

Sierra Cavanaugh has triumphed to become the first female elite warrior in Grey Wolf history. All she needs is the pack council’s approval. But those stuffy, old wolves refuse to elect her unless she finds herself a mate.
Packmaster Maverick Grey was reconciled to spending the rest of his life alone. Now, all the Seven Range clans are working on a treaty, and he needs the elite warrior vacancy filled—and fast. If Sierra needs a mate, this is his chance to claim her. But Sierra has an agenda of her own for their union.
For these two rivals, the only thing more dangerous than fighting the enemy at their backs is resisting the attraction that’s building between them…
