#HDH More of Wolf Sanctuary with Ellen Cross

Another week has flown by, and it's that time again...yep, it's Hump Day Hook time!
Hump Day Hook is a weekly blog hop, joined in by many very talented authors, who like me, want to share small tastes of their books and WIP's free!

This week, I continue with the excerpt from my WIP, Wolf sanctuary, which will be available at EXtasy Books once finished.

This scene joins on with the past two weeks, where we see wolf shifter Reece, heading out in the middle of the night, in the rain, at the insistence of his inner wolf. His hybrid mate, Sean is with him. They've encountered a freezing and wet woman in the middle of the road, who has just passed out.

* * * *

"Damn, she's icy cold. It looks like your little inner debate with your wolf was for a reason, love. Let's get her into the truck and pump up the heat. There's a picnic rug behind the seat if you want to help me wrap her in it too."
Reece nodded, rushing the passenger side door of the truck open. Sean slid in, jostling the woman slightly until her head rested on his shoulder as he nodded for Reece to close the door. Climbing into his seat, Reece reached over the back and pulled out the rug Sean had mentioned. He shook it out as best he could in the confined space of the cab and wrapped it over the top of Sean, tucking in the edges so that the woman was fully covered apart from her small damp head. Leaning against Sean, she reminded him of a child with her petite size and small defined features. Her hair stuck to her face in dark, dripping clumps, as he leaned over and pulled the strands out of the way. Even in the dimply lit cab, her face almost glowed with a sickly pale pallor. His wolf chuffed in his mind, as if pleased it had gotten its way and was thrilled with the result. She was definitely what his beast had wanted...but why?

Find out what happens next, in next week's final look into my excerpt of Wolf Sanctuary!


  1. Makes me wonder if there is a deeper connection between them, and if so, how did his wolf know? Crazy! Can't wait to see what happens next.

  2. I wonder what his wolf knows that he doesn't know yet-- why they are so drawn to the woman. Looking forward to more!

  3. Oooh...why does his beast want her? What connection do they have? Great hook!

  4. Intriguing snippet. More please. :)

  5. I like that can sense something about the beast but not know everything. Nicely done.

  6. Hmmm.I'm wondering why beasty boy finds her so intriguing. I hope you share more next week!

  7. MMF is it? :) Interesting that there's some space between the human and wolf psyche.

  8. Thank you everyone for your comments :)
    I will continue next week with one last snippet from this first chapter, then will include the whole prologue and first chapter in a separate post, for those who need more and would like to see it all. Hopefully it will help explain some of the questions you all have *grins*

    And no, this is a MM book...a little sad, but there is happiness there as well, and yes, there is a strong paranormal theme that goes beyond simple shifters.
    Till next week!
