What the book has to say:
WHY WHISTLE IN THE DARK…
There are very few days off when you’re on an epic quest. Believe me, I know. I’m Hedi Peacock—one half Fae, the other Were—and if being a half-breed with one foot in each world isn’t tough enough to manage, there are the four chambers of my heart to consider. The one who holds the strings? Robson Trowbridge, the Alpha of Creemore. If I had my way, he and I would be locked in a bedroom, for eternity, but a pressing family matter needs my attention. It’s true what they say: A woman’s work is never done.
WHEN YOU CAN HOWL AT THE MOON?
My twin brother is being held captive by the Old Mage in another realm. Lo and behold, as soon as Trowbridge and I arrive in Merenwyn, we’re separated in spectacular, dramatic fashion—and I’m left to figure out how to maintain the fragile balance between my Fae magic and my wolf’s blood in a realm that cries to both. Not easy, particularly when I'm keeping an iron-grip on my temper so as not to dispatch with extreme prejudice the odd wizard or smart-mouthed mutt servant who crosses my path. My mama never told me there’d be days like these, but I’m not going down without a fight…or my mate.
What I have to say:
A woman’s work is never done and destiny has Heidi and Trowbridge in Merenwyn to rescue her twin brother from the Old Mage in this exciting urban fantasy romance.
Heidi and Trowbridge are separated shortly after arriving in Merenwyn and the reader can’t help but get caught up in all the excitement as the epic quest seems to be an unending fight for survival and Heidi decides she’s not going down without a fight – or without her mate. The attraction between Heidi and Trowbridge has gotten steadily stronger throughout the series, so the chemistry in this story burns hotter than ever as Heidi finally accepts parts of herself and her destiny. The strong compelling characters demand reader’s attention from the very beginning and the steady to fast paced plot keeps readers on the edge of anticipation with lots of suspense, action, emotional turmoil, ups and downs and passion.
There is never a dull moment as Merenwyn is full of deadly adversaries including some close to home, unforeseen dangers and malicious traps with spine tingling expectation building as Heidi and Trowbridge get closer to the conclusion of their quest and their success hinges on a wing and a prayer. Heidi’s internal debates with herself, her fae, and her wolf sides adds lots of spice and depth to the story as well as providing some humor while the well written scenes and details bring the story to life and the well planned events draw the reader’s along on Heidi and Trowbridge’s adventures and refuse to let the reader put the book down until they have read every last word.
Or at least that is certainly the case with me as I stayed up all night so I could find out what happened next especially with the surprising twists and turns that kept me on my toes.

Introducing Leigh Evans:
I was born in Montreal, Quebec but now live in Southern Ontario with my husband. I’ve raised two kids, mothered three dogs, and herded a few cats. Other than that, my life was fairly routine until I hit the age of 50. Some women get tattoos. I decided to write a book. A little tardy, but then again, Mum always said I was a late bloomer.
