We got Aussied again. :wink:
Now Lexxie Couper and I don't go back too far, but far enough to know I love her work. I went fan-girl on her after reading Savage Retribution. For those of you who've heard my story about becoming a writer, you know I discovered ebooks in January 2008. I then found out about the werewolf phenomena and proceeded to read every single book I could get my hands on. Including Lexxie's.
She rocks as a writer. Savage Retribution was wild, untamed, hot as the blazes and set in Australia!! Bloody brilliant as far as I was concerned. Since then I've gotten to speak with her a few times, including when she gave me a few chapters from the next book in the that series (with a Tasmanian Tiger shifter!!) Now she's got a million books out (okay, 14) and a few on the coming soon pages, and soooo much for you to enjoy.
She also rocks in her sense of humor. I told her she had to do a traditional lampshade dance to become an International heat member. She did one, videoed it and sent it to us. Highest bidder gets dibs on seeing it.
So welcome, Lexxie. Here's to a long and fruitful partnership in IH. Oh, and the Flying Dutchman Space ship? We are totally going to write that story!! I'm thinking that there's this map that's been hidden...
PS. Kidding about the highest bidder. But who knows where that video might show up down the road. :wink:

“Savage Retribution” by Lexxie Couper
Publication Date: February 19, 2008
Cover art by Scott Carpenter
An animal rights activist is about to get a crash course in werewolves. One she may not survive.
Lone Irish werewolf Declan O’Connell has lost everything—his family, his clan, even his freedom—to his arch-rival, Nathan Epoc. The head of an underground werewolf clan and a brilliant scientist, Epoc plans to use Declan to create a super-wolf, a creature capable of shifting the balance of power in the lycanthrope world. But Epoc’s plans are about to be thwarted.
Regan Thomas, a determined animal rights activist, rescues what she thinks is an ordinary wolf from his notorious animal testing facility in Sydney, Australia. She gets more than she bargained for when the wolf turns into an extremely hunky, extremely naked man who immediately drags her into a world where the clash between two opposing werewolf clans could spell the end of humankind.
Declan has survived without a clan for more years than he cares to remember, but sexy Regan stirs up all his fierce, alpha-wolf instincts. Now Declan has one last chance at revenge. But can he keep Regan alive, and resist the overwhelming attraction between them, long enough to stop Epoc?
Summer in Australia has never been this hot… or this dangerous.
