I am so excited for today’s guest…I tend to get that way when Cynthia comes by to say hello! I squeal and I giggle and then my hubby tells me to knock it off. He’s a spoil sport 🙂 So let’s welcome one of my most favoritest authors EVER…..
Men Who Howl
Hi, everyone! First, a big thanks to my hostess for inviting me over! Thank you!!
My new book, NEVER CRY WOLF, features a werewolf hero. Lucas Simone is tough, downright lethal, yet he can still charm any woman in sight. Ah, a strong wolf. I wrote about Lucas because, quite simply, I love werewolves. I love the wildness inside of them. I love their protective streaks. I love it when they get all kick-ass with their claws.
What can I say? I love men who howl.
Right now, I am particularly enjoying watching the werewolf Alcide on HBO’s True Blood. The actor (Joe Manganiello) playing that character is perfect as a wolf. He’s big, strong, with long hair and a wild side that comes out often to play. When he goes all animalistic, the show gets interesting for me.
But, years ago, there was another wolf who caught my fancy. Get ready…cause I’m going way back in time. Teen Wolf. (The original; I haven’t seen the new MTV version yet.) Michael J. Fox was just fun in the Teen Wolf flick. He was a wolf who had strength, don’t get me wrong, but he was also a wolf with a softer side. And I loved it when he got the (right) girl in the end.
Another wolfie guy that I enjoyed was Michael Corvin from Underworld. He started out as a nice guy, but the minute he started to get his wolf on…the guy became fierce. I do love that fierceness that can come with a wolf shift.
But what about you? Do you have a favorite TV or movie werewolf that you’d like to share? One commenter will be picked to win a copy of NEVER CRY WOLF.
Thanks for checking out my post! Now go get your werewolf on.

You heard the lady! She’s giving away a print copy of Never Cry Wolf to a random commenter! And believe me, you want to read this book. Well honestly, you want to read anything by Cynthia Eden. Contest open internationally and winner will be announced on June 27th!
Lucas Simone is not the kind of guy you mess with. He’s big, he’s strong, and his eyes hint at a wilder side most women can’t handle. Of course, that’s because his predatory instincts are no metaphor—he’s a genuine Grade-A top-quality werewolf, tough enough to fight his way to dominance over the scariest pack on the West Coast. There’s only one chink in his armor. Unlike most alpha dogs, Lucas has a reputation for protecting the weak and innocent.
Sarah King is counting on that protective impulse—it’s the only thing standing between her and certain death. There are only two problems: one, she’s not quite as innocent as she’d like Lucas to believe. And two, if he doesn’t stop stoking Sarah’s animal lust, it’s only a matter of time before her own wild side gets unleashed. . .
