In her new fantasy novel, “She-Wolf - The Den: Love at First Sight - My First Mate” (published by iUniverse), author Melanie Mayes tells the story of an empowered woman who must rule and protect her kingdom.
A werewolf, shape shifter and witch, Melanie rules as the queen of her kingdom. After her parents’ deaths years ago, she was entrusted to the care of her father’s war chief, Devilman. Now, Melanie is old enough to run the kingdom, and as the last of her bloodline, she takes her role seriously.
She faces many tests and challenges as the ruler, but she always approaches her responsibilities with a benevolent heart. Will her love for her people, and her new mate, be enough that her warriors, friends and villagers have enough to eat, and are warm and safe? Only time will tell.
An excerpt from “She-Wolf - The Den”:
“Darkwolf pulled out a huge heart shaped diamond ring. He smiled and read the inscription on the inside of the band. It said True love, forever and always. I started to cry softly as he continued. I will love you forever and always with all my heart and soul. Until I take my last dying breath on this earth. You are my loving heart. And without my heart I would surely die in pain. With that he slid the ring on my finger as he looked at me and smiled.”
Mayes hopes to inspire readers’ imaginations with “She-Wolf - The Den.” “It’s packed full of great characters,” she explains. “And lots of love, loss and death. But through it all, every character fights together for a common cause.”
