The Blackstone She- Wolf by Alicia Montgomery
Blackstone Mountain Book 6
Having been burned before, Kate Caldwell has always avoided relationships. That’s why when her wolf tells her that the brooding and serious Petros Thalassa is her mate, she runs in the other direction. Still, she can’t get that sexy Greek wolf out of her head, but she’ll be damned before she loses herself to another man.
Petros Thalassa has longed for a mate of his own, someone to share his lonely life with. While the woman his wolf has chosen seems reluctant, he’s not giving up that easily. He’s searched far and wide for her, and he knows that she’s worth the chase. He’s going to make her his, to cherish and love forever.
When a threat from his past comes back, he must do what he can to protect his intended mate. But Kate is no shrinking flower; when she realizes that being with Petros is something she wants for herself, she vows to be by his side, no matter what.

Author Interview with Alicia Montgomery
What inspired you to write this novel? Where did the idea come from?
The title character in this book’s name is Kate, and she was inspired by one of my favorite movies – Kiss Me Kate, which is turn was inspired by Taming of the Shrew. If you know the movie and play, I’ve even incorporated some dialogue into the book because I thought it would be a fun tribute.
The original hero I had in mind was much closer to the Fred Graham/Petruchio character, but he (Petros) ended up being very different. He’s not so smooth, and is actually a bit socially awkward and stoic, but I think he’s a great counterpoint to the more brassy and loud Kate.
What is your favourite book of the series?
Although this book (Blackstone She-Wolf) holds a special place in my heart because of the main female character, I would have to say The Blackstone Bear was one of my favorite to write. Up to this point, I’d only written about wolves and dragons, so it was a nice change-up. Also, Ben (the hero) is a real sweetheart and all-around nice guy, but he’s still got those protective Alpha instincts that make him a great shifter romance hero.
If you could be best friends with one of your characters who would it be and why?
The last book in the main Blackstone series will feature Sybil Lennox, a female dragon, and I think I’d pick her as someone I’d want to be best friends with. She’s (unintentionally) funny, but also loyal and strong and she would do anything for those she loves. Plus, who wouldn’t want a dragon as a best friend?
What is your typical day like?
I wake up around 7 am so I can have coffee with my husband, JT before he goes to work. Then I’ll watch some news while I check on social media or see what’s in my inbox. I might chat with my PA Jannie as well, if there are any pressing matters we need to discuss. After eating breakfast (usually just a piece of toast), I’ll start with book stuff. I’ll check on my ads and my marketing stuff. Then I’ll try to edit whatever I wrote the day before and maybe get a few hundred words in until lunch. I work from home, so I’ll usually make myself some lunch or on those days I can splurge, I’ll go out to eat at a cafe and end up working there the rest of the afternoon.
Aside from being an author, I also do freelance corporate work, so I’ll work on client stuff mid-afternoon, then back to writing. JT gets home around 5 or 6, and I try to finish work by then so we can have dinner. On most days, we’re in bed by 10pm, but if I have a deadline or if I’m too wound up, I’ll stay up until midnight writing.
When you’re not writing, what do you like to do?
I read a lot, but my other creative hobby is singing! I’m a lyric soprano and used to sing with choirs when I was younger and semi-professionally when I was in my late teens and mid-twenties, but I stopped for more than ten years because I moved around a lot. But last year I really wanted to get back into it and get my voice back in shape, so I found a vocal coach I like, as well as a choir I sing with.
It’s a great way to use a different part of my creative brain when I’m not writing and often, if I have a writing or mental block, I’ll start practicing whatever song I’m doing that week and it helps get my creative juice flowing.
What are you writing now?
So right now, I’m on a bit of a break because I’m moving to another city for my husband’s job and I’m singing in a big concert right before we move. But, once I get settled at the end of June, I’m going to dive into the next in the series, The Blackstone She-Bear. I’m pretty excited about it because this book is a little different from the rest of the books and also because I’ve got an amazing cover featuring a real-life couple who got engaged on the day they took the photos.
