What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Wolf Shifters and forbidden love is a popular trope; and who does not like a man defying his father to fight for your love. Wolf Shifters and Wolf Fae aren't natural enemies but since the Grey Alpha wants to rule them all, he needs to get rid of the Wolf Fae who are controlling his pack. I was inspired to write the first book in this series to highlight animal rights and wolves was one among the animals. I wanted to blend ethics with popular fantasy themes for an enjoyable read.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The characters was a result of Enemies to Lovers tropes, where the biggest conflict would be between the Alpha heir and the enemy of the pack – The wolf fae. I wanted the characters to be able to prove that they would stand up for what they believed in and wouldn't surrender to their superiors' control.
Finally, Greyham decided to pluck up the courage to ask Crystal the question that was on his mind, but which he was afraid would be a step too far. His fingered hovered over the keyboard.
May I call you?
Greyham had been locked into his father’s guestroom, which wasn’t bad. It had a bed and an en-suite bathroom. But he was still trapped and unable to return to his mate. He wanted to be punished and get on with it already.
He placed the phone beside him on the bed and lay back with his arms folded under his head to wait. It felt like it was taking ages. But suddenly the phone pinged, and he jumped to grab it and read the message.
I would like that.
Greyham’s heart double flipped with joy. He tapped on her number and heard the connection turn to buzzing intervals.
“Greyham?” she answered, and hearing his name made his insides purr.
“I’m here. Are you okay?”
“Yeah. I’m at home. I saw you took a rough beating.”
“Nah, Hellgrey had it worse.”
“I was so worried he’d kill you.”
“Hellgrey is my best friend. It’s not the first time we’ve scuffled. He was just following his alpha’s orders.”
“Your father’s orders.”
Greyham grunted and the silence lingered. “So, you’re grounded?”
“Yeah, goodness knows for how long. My father was really mad.”
“Better than being locked up.”
“You’re locked up?”
“Father said he would chain me to Grey Peak if I attempted to save you.”
“It wouldn’t be the first time either. I wanted to abdicate from my alpha heir commitment three years ago, so he chained me to the rock for two days. One of the nights, it was raining, I might add.”
“Your father sounds like a real bully.”
“He can be at times. He has a large pack and a big reputation to uphold.”
“And I’m in his way?”
Crystal was quiet for a while and Greyham revelled in just hearing her breathing.
“So, why are you helping me?”
Her voice was low and solemn. Greyham couldn’t bear it.
“You’re mine,” he barked gently.
He shook his head to rid the igniting anger that had impulsively infiltrated his mind. Worry infected him, hoping she wouldn’t think he was acting insanely. He didn’t want to create any further distance between them.
“I am.” Her words confirmed his darkest desires.
“Have you ever heard of a Fate Mate before?”
“Uhm, yeah, I think the expression has come up in conversation, but it was a long time ago. I think it’s supposed to be the most unbreakable and deepest form of love between wolf shifters.”
“A fated love; a strike by destiny, without having to actually do the mating ritual.” Greyham held his breath as he mentioned it, clenching his jaws as he nervously awaited Crystal’s reaction.
“Yes. I believe it’s something like that.”
Greyham felt a tingle run through his body. He had approached the topic, but now felt tongue-tied as to how he should carry on.
“Oh…oh…I see…” Crystal stammered after a while.
Not sure what Crystal had garnered from it, he wanted to ask a thousand questions. He wanted to know what she was thinking, and he wanted to know all about her.
He was interrupted by the sound of three loud knocks on the door.
“Little Paw, who are you talking to?”
His father’s voice was stern and already accusing him of mischief from the other side of the locked door.
Greyham covered the audio intake of the phone with his thumb so that Crystal wouldn’t hear him shouting. “I’m a grown man. I can talk to whoever I want. Bugger off!”
His father went silent. Good. Greyham placed his ear to the phone again. “Sorry about that. My father was at the door. You were saying?”
“I wasn’t as much saying as I was processing the…”
The call abruptly cut off.
“Hello?” Greyham huffed.
He looked at the screen. No reception. His father had unplugged the wi-fi connection. The sudden pang of longing for his mate, soured his stomach. He heard the key turn in the lock and his father opened the door, his yellow eyes glowering at Greyham.
“You were engaging with the fae, weren’t you?”
Greyham didn’t answer him and just lay down relaxed on his bed, trying not to let his father spoil his mood.
“You don’t get it, son. The fae must die!”
Greyham couldn’t take hearing that, and jumped up onto his feet. “You won’t touch her. She’s mine.”
His father whistled a sharp tone and four of his closest wolf guards appeared at the door.
“Ensure Greyham doesn’t leave Grey Peak until the fae is dead.”
