About Worth the Wait
The Northwest Maine Pack is settling down since Diego, the new pack leader, is almost done healing after challenges to his leadership. His wife, Saoirse, presents him with a welcome surprise. John, son of the late pack leader, has headed out to Boston, to live with Freddie, Saoirse’s bestie, whom he met at her wedding to Diego. This leaves a gap in pack security, so Diego asks if anyone from the family of Canadian hunters is willing to fill in for him.
Grant volunteers. He's been haunted by the memory of the black she-wolf he saw on the pack grounds. His wolf tells him she is their mate, but he doesn’t even know what she looks like as a human.
Nathan has been without any real love in his life, since his family disowned him years ago, for telling them of his secret duality. But when his wolf senses an unfamiliar she-wolf, and they mate, the next morning, the woman has no memory of anything they did the night before.
Everyone has been waiting a long time for what they want the most. But the path to true love is rarely an easy one. Especially when you are a werewolf.
Here's a quickie excerpt from the middle of the book, after Nathan has found his mate, but she doesn't remember anything about it. Nathan leaves the room, totally depressed. Saoirse is alone with Diego, her husband.
Saoirse got up and walked over to Diego, who turned to face her. He put his arms around her, and rested his face against her almost full-term belly. She pulled off the band he tied his hair back with, stroking the silky strands.
"Is that how mopey you would have been, if I'd have rejected you?"
He looked up at her to gaze seriously into her eyes. "No. I doubt I'd have had the time to mope. I'd have been killed in the first challenge."
Her eyes grew wide, as both of her loves watched her through Diego's eyes.
"Then I'm really glad I didn't let you scare me off, with your talk of life-time commitment and all."
He smiled, then rested his face against her belly again, just in time to feel a small body part push against him.
"What's that? You don't want me snuggling your mommy so closely? Too bad, little one. She was mine before she was yours. And long after you grow up and move out of our house, she will still be mine. I'm glad to share her with you, for now. But she is now, and will always be, mine."
He rose up to take Saoirse into his arms, tilting her head up to kiss her passionately. When she leaned back, her eyes were dreamy, and her lips were puffy from kissing.
"Yes, my love?"
"I've read that you can get things moving along nicely with labor, by doing what got you into this in the first place."
His lips quirked up on the edges, and his eyes sparkled. "Is that a fact?"
"Well, it's what I've read. And you don't have any pressing appointments right now, do you?"
He shook his head, taking her hand and leading her out of the office. He purposefully pulled her down the hall to the master bedroom.

About the Author
Fiona has always had stories in her head. Characters intrude into her thoughts and insist on showing her scenes from their lives. She discovered that when she ignores them, they start to yell louder; if she writes their stories and they can live in readers' heads as well, they usually leave her alone...only to be replaced by a new group of story-tellers. Her head is usually a very crowded place, but she likes it that way.
