Lindy & The Wulfen
The Wolf’s Mate, Book 7
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publication Date:  May 6, 2014
Print Length: 150 pages
ASIN: B00J2CJNK0

After a devastating blow to her already fragile self esteem, werewolf Lindy Vincent has decided to stop being the pack whore and change her life for the better.  With the help of her two best friends, her alpha female, and a feisty she-wolf named Eula, Lindy starts down the road of self-improvement, happy for the first time in years.

Crimson Ta'rek is a Wulfen, a cross between a wolf and a fairy, and the only one of his kind.  After casting a spell for his truemate, he finds himself in the Mortal Realm rescuing the she-wolf meant to be his.  When someone from his past threatens Lindy, Crimson will show the realm why no one messes with a Wulfen’s mate.

This book contains one Wulfen with eyes only for his mate, a she-wolf trying to start her life over, and the spell that brings them together.  Expect plenty of shifting, growling, and neck biting, fairy magic, and gratuitous use of the word “mine.”

Lindy & The Wulfen - Excerpt 1:

Faith opened the front door without knocking, wearing a short, black dress and sky-high heels.  “When I said ‘go out’,” she smiled, “I meant to a bar not a picnic.”

Lindy sighed.  “I’m trying something different.”

Faith leaned against the wall and eyed her speculatively.  “Different?”

“I’m tired of the trampy clothes.  I hardly have anything decent to wear outside of my work shirts and jeans.  If I ever did find a guy willing to mate with me, what the hell would I wear to meet his parents?”

Faith looked at her for a long moment and said, “When we talked about finding our mates the other day…are you trying to change yourself into a different person?  Because it shouldn’t matter what your clothes look like.  A guy worth a damn is going to understand that."

“I know, but I’m miserable.  I never thought that my life would turn out this way.  When I planned my life at Sunny’s age, I thought I’d be mated with a few pups by now.  I have a lot of regrets.”

“I do, too, but I’m not going to change who I am.”

“I’m still the same person on the inside, but I kinda feel like this outside matches my insides better.  Does that make sense?”

Faith snorted.  “Are you saying my insides are slutty?”

“I’m talking about me.  You said I looked like I was going to a picnic.”


Faith rolled her eyes.  “I was just teasing.  You look pretty, and what’s better is that you look happier, and that’s important."

Our Interview

What would you have done differently if you were the main character of your book?

I would not allowed myself to get so removed from the Pack that I was a virtual stranger, and I definitely wouldn’t have let myself get used by so many people.

What was your inspiration behind this book? 

I mentioned the character of the wulfen in the previous book in the series, and my editor said she thought it would make a good storyline.  I knew then that Lindy, who had mostly been an antagonist up until that point, was going to get her redemption in the 7th book with a wulfen as her hero.

Why did you become a writer?

I love to write stories and share them.

Do you have a favorite author or authors?

JR Ward, Laurann Dohner, Jayne Rylon

Do you like to write your books in a continuing series? 

I love to write series.  Writing a book is an investment in time and creativity, and I often don’t want to just leave a book behind and move on, but go back and see the characters again and again.

If you could date any character from any book, who would it be and why?

Valiant from Laurann Dohner’s New Species series

I have had a deep and abiding crush on Mr. Darcy since I was fifteen. 

What kinds of books do you like to read in your spare time?

I mostly read paranormal romance, but I there are some contemporary authors that I enjoy as well.

As a reader and writer I think it is important to get to know your fans and make a connection with them as an author who takes the extra step to hear what their fans think and want in their continued writing is continued success and key to selling more books .Do you agree with that?

Absolutely!  I’m always curious to hear what people think of my stories and characters.  I’m often surprised by a minor character that becomes important to readers.   

Do you cry when writing sad scenes?

Sometimes.  I don’t write tear-jerker books because I don’t really like reading books that make me cry.  But there have been times when I’ve written a scene that just got to me.

I try not to. Someone has to keep a clear head, if it’s not the characters than I suppose it has to be me. 

Did you have a Cover Designer?

Absolutely!  I’ve been using the supremely talented Ramona of Romance Book Cover Designs by Ramona. 

Who is your fictional boyfriend or girlfriend crush? 

Ral from Ral’s Woman by Laurann Dohner

If you were able to dine and have a one on one with your favorite writer/author who would it be?

Laurann Dohner

Do just re-read your favorite books? 

I do!  Especially if an author is releasing another book in a series I love, I will re-read the others before it comes out.

Do you ever get in a reading slump like your readers do? 

Definitely.  My Kindle is full of books I haven’t read yet and there are times when nothing appeals to me.

What is the funniest book you ever read?


Any of Celia Kyle’s books crack me up.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:



I always wanted to be a homebody and live in one place for my entire life, but fate had other plans. In the past twelve years of my married life, we’ve moved seven times, including from one coast to the other. Southern New Jersey is home now and I love it.  I have two young children, a husband who begrudgingly pays for my ebook addiction, and two dogs that think they’re people. After college, I spent eight years as an executive assistant before “retiring” at twenty-seven to become a stay-at-home mom. I have a soft spot for self-published authors, Ghirardelli chocolate, muscle cars, and men with tattoos.  Most people who know me don’t know I have a tattoo of a tiger on my hip or that I have an unhealthy obsession with The Simpsons.

I love sunsets, several cups of coffee in the morning, and I absolutely cannot live without books. When I’m not busy with my family, you’ll find me sitting at my desk working on any number of projects, including reading, reviewing, and writing.

I adore talking to fans and other authors, so please write to me!  You can email me at rebutlerauthor@gmail, visit my website, find me on Twitter, or join me on Facebook.
