RUNNING WITH WOLVES: Historical Fiction from Summer Lane

Title: Running with Wolves
Author: Summer Lane 
Series: Standalone 
Release Date: September 22, 2017 


Alaska, 1898 

“They always come back,” she whispers. “Always.”
He spilled their blood. Now, she’s out for revenge.
Jenna Renee is a woman wronged. When her adoptive parents are brutally murdered by an outlaw named Conroy Parker and his gang of thugs, they take everything from her: her family, her happiness, and her money.
Determined to bring Conroy and his boys to justice, she hires a gruff but dangerous gun-slinging trapper and guide, Jeremiah Black, to help her hunt Conroy down.
But there is more to Alaska than meets the eye.

The cold touch of the arctic winter is dangerous, and the corruption of Conroy Parker and his comrades runs deep. The tundra is unforgiving, and so are the wolves. Nothing is as at seems.
If the wilderness doesn’t kill Jenna, the pack will. Revenge comes with a price, and so does love. There will be no mercy….only the hunt.
A romantic adventure from #1 bestselling author Summer Lane, set amidst the gritty and awe-inspiring setting of Alaska during the last great Gold Rush.

Q&A with Summer Lane! (Yours truly!) 

How did the idea of Running with Wolves come about? 

Quite simply, it was one of those stories that jumped into my head. I have loved wolves and Alaska and the adventure of the wilderness since I was a toddler. I used to watch Balto once a week, for years. I have been obsessed with dogs and wolves since before I can remember. As an adult, my interest in dog training and dog-sledding intensified and became something I researched and learned about as a hobby. This love became the basis for the story of Running with Wolves. 

When will the book release? 
We are aiming for a September 22 release. 

This is your first fictional departure in 5 years from the apocalyptic world you have created. How does that feel? 
Amazing! Wolves is right in my wheelhouse, because it's all about survival, the wilderness and overcoming incredible odds. The difference is that there is no apocalypse: just the barren arctic winter of Alaska. There is no Omega: just the wolf pack and robbers and corrupt mining companies. It's in the vein of an old western, with a fun twist. Plus, it's a romance, so that's really entertaining for me to write. I'm not leaving the apocalypse behind (Collapse's spin-off, Resurrection, will be available in 2018), but it's refreshing to take my work in a new direction. Change is good. 

RUNNING WITH WOLVES, coming September 2017.
