Life is funny, isn’t it? I’m sitting here and I had to pause for a second because I cannot believe I am already writing out this blog post. I literally just published Enchanting Wick a few weeks ago and now, here I am again, ready to publish another book.
I suppose the only explanation I have is that I absolutely loved creating, and writing, Wick and Gracie’s story. These two characters have enchanted me since I started dreaming up The Hidden Realm Series. I guess, in some ways, my obsession and love for them propelled me to work harder than I ever have before.
Captivating Wick is a story about love and redemption. It is also about discovering the true meaning of loving someone, warts and all. Wick is not a typical storybook character. He’s an anti-hero at best. He is not ashamed of his past, nor does he hesitate to kill anyone who stands in his way or threatens those he cares about. He is somewhat mentally unstable and I did not want to shy away from that element.
The simple fact is, most male characters you read about today are pretty messed up, but Wick doesn’t use that as an excuse. He takes full responsibility for his actions and he wears his insanity proudly on his sleeve ( as noted by Gracie). His past does not dictate his future. He does not use the excuse of being domineering as his way to control his environment, nor does he participate in any showman like sexual deviant games.
He is, down deep, a lost little boy, who craves love and he finds that unconditional love with Gracie.
In Captivating Wick, Gracie has other issues to worry about besides Wick. She has something infinitely more important to focus her attention on and it was interesting to weave a tale of two people navigating this tricky situation.
Yes, there is one huge bombshell revealed at the climax and it is an aspect of the story that I have been working on since day one. I just wasn’t quite sure when I was going to incorporate it in the six book series. I can also tell you that Maximus does indeed make a quick appearance towards the end and I am now itching to write his and Marianna’s tale.
The release date for Captivating Wick is November 17, 2015 and I am pleased as punch to unveil the blurb, and the book trailer.
Book Four of The Hidden Realm Series concludes the epic love story of Gracie and Wick.
Gracie has turned to the only man that can help her after a stunning discovery rocks her world. She knows Wick’s state of mind is precarious, but she has no choice. She must place her faith and trust into the damaged man that she loves with all her heart.
Danger and deception threaten them at every turn. Wick is determined to keep Gracie safe at all costs and he is pushed to the edge of his unstable darkness as their love deepens. A new life emerges, but will it be their salvation or their destruction?
A shocking revelation will be revealed and their lives will never be the same as they continue to fight against the evil interim werewolf king who has vowed to get his revenge on Wick.
Join Wick and Gracie on their journey as they navigate the road to love and redemption!
