Calla Tor has always known her destiny: After graduating from the Mountain School, she'll be the mate of sexy alpha wolf Ren Laroche and fight with him, side by side, ruling their pack and guarding sacred sites for the Keepers. But when she violates her masters' laws by saving a beautiful human boy out for a hike, Calla begins to question her fate, her existence, and the very essence of the world she has known. By following her heart, she might lose everything- including her own life. Is forbidden love worth the ultimate sacrifice?
Andrea Cremer spent her childhood daydreaming while roaming the forests and lakeshores of Northern Wisconsin. She now lives in Minnesota, but she thinks of her homeland as the “Canadian Shield” rather than the Midwest.
Andrea has always loved writing and has never stopped writing, but she only recently plunged into the deep end of the pool that is professional writing. When she’s not writing, Andrea teaches history at a very nice liberal arts college in St. Paul.
In the little spare time she can find, Andrea stares up at trees, rescues infant rabbits from predatory cats, and invents names for pug puppies with her husband. She has an unfortunate tendency to spill things – white carpets beware!

Top Ten Places to Read by Andrea Cremer
10. On a plane: I love traveling and reading while on my way to another place is frosting on the cake. I also love peeking at what other travelers are reading.
9. At the airport: Waiting to board is boring. Good books make the time go by like nothing else.
8. In coffee houses: I love the sounds and scents of coffee houses. Reading in coffee houses is great for relaxing while still feeling the buzz of life all around you. Plus – caffeine!
7. In parks: Outside? Reading? Unless there are mosquitoes this is a win win scenario.
6. In bookstores and libraries: Browsing the shelf after shelf of books – books I love like old friends and new books that I can’t wait to tread – is one of my favorite ways to spend time
5. When dining alone: I’m out and about by myself frequently. I actually don’t mind dining alone, but having a good book along makes it even better and keeps me from attempting napkin origami.
4. In art museums: I love spending hours wandering the halls of art museums. But my feet get tired, especially in big institutions like the Met. Reading provides the perfect the break in between gazing at paintings and sculptures.
3. At my parents’ house: I grew up in a family of readers and being in a room with my mom and dad, with each of us lost in a story, is one of my favorite things about going home.
2. In bed: The only problem with getting caught up in a wonderful book late at night is that you might get any sleep.
1. With my dogs: They love to snuggle and are better than blankets in the winter.
