Welcome Jane Wakely! 

Hey everyone!

   In October, I asked some of the Rebel Ink Press authors to let me post on their blogs to help promote my first book.  The very successful author, Jane Wakely, didn't hesitate to help me.  She is an amazing author and definitely goes out of her way to offer advise to newly published writers like me.  I'm so excited to have her on my blog!

Book Spotlight: Ella’s Cougar


Title: Ella’s Cougar (Chestnut Rock Shifters, Book 7)

Author: Jane Wakely

Genre: Paranormal/Shifter Romance

Publisher: Rebel Ink Press



Ella Cardwell never forgot the cougar she met in the forest after wandering away from her parents when she was six years old. Her unbelievable story, combined with her fascination of the animals, caused her to leave home when she turned eighteen and find the cougar that monopolizes her thoughts. She makes the journey to the Chestnut Rock Resort, certain she will find her destiny—the boy, now a man, from all those years ago. She recognizes him on sight, but he’s not waiting for her like she thought he would be.


Cole Rookman met his mate when he was too young to understand the strong, intense feelings conjured by the mating instinct. With no way to track her down, he’s lived for nearly fifteen years with the knowledge he would never be able to claim her, and he would always be alone. Unusual circumstances lead to allowing thoughts of his mate to break down his carefully constructed barriers, and he risks losing everything.


Ella makes new friends, but they soon learn her secret: she came looking for a man who is unavailable. Instead of censure, they offer comfort and friendship until the truth starts to unravel and her crush is ultimately revealed. Cole wants to believe his mate searched him out, but after battling severe depression, he’s not willing to raise his hopes. Wishing for something impossible is reckless, but when all signs point to the girl as his mate, he has to find her and see for himself.



Unbelievably, nothing had changed. The hotel looked just as it had in the picture. Though it didn’t show in the postcard, the buildings on either side of the main hotel were also as she remembered. To the left of the main house stood a smaller building she thought might be the owner’s home, or employee quarters. It was much larger than most houses, but the detached garage gave it a normal appearance.


To the right of the hotel, another smaller building stood. It reminded her of a warehouse, but she didn’t know its purpose. Further down on the right led to the carport. Guests used golf carts to travel the property when she’d visited, and it looked like they still did.


She tucked the postcard back into her pocket and resisted the urge to run toward the main doors of the hotel. She wasn’t exactly sure of her plan—or how she would find the man—and briefly contemplated going to the smaller house on the left.


Ella glanced toward the building again and noticed a car parked out front. As if in slow motion, the front door opened and a short woman with platinum blond hair stepped out, followed by a tall blond man carrying an infant in a car seat.


She’d always known in her heart she would know him on sight, but never once did she question his feelings.


The blond man was the boy, all grown up, and she was too late.


Her whole life, her world, shattered.


Ella turned and ran into the forest.
