YABC's Around the World in 30 Days with Bethany Wicker of the US, plus giveaways

around-the-world-unexpected-mate

Today we're excited to welcome Bethany Wicker from the US! She is here to share her novel Unexpected Mate as part of the YABC Around the World in 30 Days event! Read on for more about Bethany and her novel!


And don't forget to enter the weekly giveaway and the event Grand Prize giveaway!

 

Meet Bethany Wicker

I write fantasy and paranormal romance, but am mostly known for the Aluna series. I live in Louisiana with my husband and daughter and it's one of the best places for food. We have delicious Cajun cooking down here like Gumbo and Jumbalaya. Can't forget the seafood and crawfish boils either. When I'm not stuffing my face with food, I'm probably drinking coffee.

Meet Unexpected Mate

Eden was born a hybrid wolf with both Alpha and Luna powers within her. Now that she’s seventeen, she’s expected to find a mate and prepare to take over her pack when she’s eighteen, as is tradition. But nobody expected it to be Liam.

Liam, the son of Knox and Katie, is the only werewolf born without a wolf. It was an unheard of phenomena until he was born. His twin brother got the wolf gene and Liam is just the leftover. Feeling like an outcast, he never anticipated he’d have a shot at dating Eden, let alone be her mate.

Does Eden have enough werewolf in her for the two of them to lead the pack together? To make things worse, something’s draining their livestock of their blood.
