Book-of-the-Day: Cascadia Wolves: Wolf Unbound


Every day from today until January 4th, 2010, (except for December 24th and 25th), I’ll be giving away one of Lauren Dane’s fabulous novels. In turn, she will be giving one of mine away. Head on over to her blog to see which one.

By random drawing, the winner of yesterday’s book-of-the-day contest for WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS…AFTER DARK is LuLu, who said, “I would love to go to Vegas and see all the bright lights, shows, and check out that outrageous $1.99 all you can eat buffet!”

Congratulations! You have a week from today to contact me and collect your prize. anyabast (at)


Cascadia Wolves: WOLF UNBOUND: Blurb: Werewolf Enforcer Tegan Warden has been alone since the death of her mate four years ago. Until she meets Ben Stoner at a local club and she feels something she thought died inside her. Things move very quickly and she finds herself mated to a human man who’s not altogether sure he wants a forever kind of love with a woman he’s just met.

Ben realizes in short order Tegan is not only worth forever love, but a woman who’ll stand at his side without tolerating anything other than a full partnership.

In the bedroom it’s another story, as Ben has finally found a sexual submissive with a spark, and Tegan a man worthy of her submission. Together they work toward building a permanent relationship even as the specter of danger from the Pellini Group grows in the world of wolves.

All around them, the rising violence threatens the Packs and the only thing they know for certain is one another.

  1. The best gift was a grandson and the worst was a bread machine.

  2. Gift cards to Barnes and Noble. You can never have enough books.

  3. The best gift was a heart bracelet with my name engraved on it from my parents. The worst was a cheap T-shirt with the price tag still on it.

  4. The best – anything my daughter made for me in school. I still have all of them…

    The worst – kitchen towels from my ex-MIL

  5. The best gift ever was the netbook I got this year. I’ve wanted one for a couple of years.

    The worst was a pink grandma sweater that I got when I was 15.

  6. I am 41 yrs old. The best gift I ever got was for my 16th Birthday. My mom bought me contact lens. I hated glasses and started wearing them in Grade 1. For the first time in my life, I finally felt pretty.
    Course now there are awesome glasses to choose from but not then.
    Best gift I ever got!

  7. The best gift was hearing the words “no cancer” present from the oncologist after my most recent test.

    The worst gift… can’t think of any ’cause the best tops them all.

  8. Firstly i want to say thank you for running this fantastic giveaway.

    My best presant ever was when we were told that the tumour in my aunts head was benign, it was a huge relief.

    My worst is this year as my mum hat an arterial biopsy on her head & was supposed to get the results on Christmas eve but due to the holidays they have been delayed. Not knowing what it wrong with my mum is bad enough but to be left hanging at christmas was worst.

    My best & worst Presants were not physical objects but they have a strong presence in my life just like a physical item has for others.

    Good Luck Everyone. xx

  9. When the kids were small, we would give them money and take them to the 99 cent store and a list of family members. They would pick out stuff to give, go home and wrap it themselfs. One year I got a hot pink heart shaped egg flipper. Still have it. The worse gift was bubble bath.

  10. Best gift, hmm, I think was the externl hard drive my sister got me. I was searching for one to archive all my files and I couldn’t find one I liked that felt portable, my sister found one that’s like a book and it’s amazing! I love that HD!

  11. Best gift – an antique Hoosier cabinet
    Worst gift – nothing ( which I get more often than not!) so to me something is better than nothing no matter what it is!

  12. My husband and I had tried to have a baby for a long time. I found out a few days before Christmas 4 years ago that I was pregnant. I’ve got a wonderful son who was my best Christmas present ever. I can’t think of a single present that I would consider worst ever.

  13. My best gift was my ebook reader. I have a lot of fun withit.

  14. Best gift ever was my diamond butterfly necklace when my son was born. Worst…clothes that were 4 sizes too big…way to make me feel good.LOL

  15. One of my best gifts happened this year…

    I entered a contest through Hay House publishing, forgot about it, and then saw an e-mail with the prize winners. And… I, who never wins anything, won the grand prize: airfare to Tampa, hotel, and weekend conference passes for I Can Do It! for two. My friend and I had a blast!

    My worst present came several years ago. My mother gave me 6 bottles of water for Christmas. Money wasn’t tight, it made sense to her… but it fell flat!

  16. Best gift? My uncle home for Christmas last year after spending almost a year in the hospital. Can’t get any better than that

  17. I always get great clothing, but shoes usually don’t go well. But that’s what gift return is for…

  18. Best gift was my Kindle, not sure how I survived without one.

  19. The best gift I ever got was this year for Christmas. This year money has been a little tight and my husband and I decided not to buys gifts for each other. The day after Christmas my son, produced a box with a sweet little necklace that he’d spent his Christmas money on all for me! It was the sweetest thing and has to be one of my proudest moments as a mom. Part of me wanted to scold him because I wanted him to be able to spend his money on himself, but what more as a parent can we want from our children than for them to be so selfless.
    The worst present – I really can’t think of any. Thanks for the opportunity to share my proud moment.

  20. The best gift I ever received as the small sapphire ring my parents gave me the Christmas I was 10. It meant a lot to me to get it and I still wear it.

    The worst gift was a regifted cosmetic case I received at a white elephant party this year.

  21. One of the best gifts I ever got was a pair of black kitty slippers that I got on Christmas Eve one year. The worst was some really bad body wash that just smelled soooo bad. lol

  22. The second best gift was getting engaged Christmas Eve. The best gift I ever received was my oldest son being born on 12/22 three years later!

  23. My best gift would be our puppy this year and the worst would be the puppy when she wakes me up at 2am. LOL

  24. My best gift would be my tickets to Seattle to visit my old employers. My worst gift would be when my brother gave me bras as a teen. LOL

  25. The best gift recently was a handmade and illustrated book from our daughter retelling a special family day together. One of the worst gifts? A used waffle iron.

  26. The BEST gift I have ever received was, of course, my daughter 😉

    The worst gift… hmm.. that’s harder. I’m usually pretty explicit about what I want… when I was a kid my dad bought me an aquarium because he was into the hobby and thought it was great. I never managed to have a surviving group of fish in mine, even goldfish. I hated it, lol!

  27. My best gift was my mom coming to visit me for Christmas this year. We haven’t spent Christmas together in 6 years. The worst was a pair of tacky earrings

  28. The Best Was a 12 Speed Bike when I was 12 Years old loved that Thing.
    Worst was some Piece’s of Clothing that I did not like are was the wrong Size.
    Happy New Years!!

  29. My best my engagement ring or my upgraded one twently years later. My worst gift would be for my 40th bday. I got nada nothing bupkis. Not sure what happened with everyone. Maybe they thought they were being nice but it was awful. Hubby paid dearly for it.

  30. The best gift I’ve ever received is book gift certificates. The worst is a hideous looking coin box!

  31. The best gift I have ever gotten is when I get cash for a present or something specific I have asked for.

    The worst is when my mom buys me clothes…she always picks out something that I can pretty much guarantee that I will NEVER wear if I can get away from it. She either buys it too big or too small or it is so not me. I do not have the heart to tell her this though. Most years she just gives me money so…

  32. The best gift I ever got was a 60″ projection screen T.V. as a thank you for giving my neighbor work when he was laid off. It wuld have been rally hard for him to get it from NJ to Florida, anyway.

    The worst gifts have probably been the horrid sweaters my grandfather’s 3rd wife would give me for my birthday, which is in July!

  33. Best gift: My youngest coming home from Iraq safe and sound and complaining of how bored he’d been.

    Worst gift(s): My ex had a habit of buying gifts for who he wanted me to be and not who I was. The Christmas that he gave me black suede boots with 4″ stiletto heels and dainty little stud earrings took the cake, though. They were lovely gifts, don’t get me wrong. They simply were not gifts for a woman who never wore any heel higher than 2″ and only wore dangly earrings and it made me wonder if he actually really looked at me, ever, or even listened when I told him exactly what I wanted.

  34. Christmas 2009 is my best ever. My hubby and teenage son prepared, cooked, and burnt everthing. They defrosted some ground meat and we ate hamburgers. We told some bad jokes, laughed and took our time.
    The worst Christmas is when I had my husband’s family over. I forgot to turn the oven on. The turkey and stuffing was uncooked. Somehow, hors’deurves for dinner just didn’t cut it. Being Irish, I saw humor in my bad situation and laughed until I cried. The day after Xmas I was still laughing while I ate hot turkey.

  35. My best gift was a beautiful bride doll from my grandmother when I was five years old. The worst gift was a fruit cake.

  36. My kids took me to Graceland for Mothers day a few years ago. That was a fab gift. I don’t have a worst gift because it’s the thought behind the gift that counts.

  37. The best gift was the channel set multi-colored sapphire ring my hubby got for me many many years ago. The worst gifts were the awful dark grey cardigans my mom always used to get for me when I was a kid.

  38. Best gift was my husband asking me to marry him. Worst gift was my vac. Like I wanted to clean more.

  39. best gift ever wa sthe rocks from my 3 yr old nephew who wante dto give me something special the rocks all women love pperently to a 3 year old thats rocks from the drive way made me cry really causehe thoughtfully picked out those rocks

  40. I think that my best gift was my digital camera that I got this year. One year I got underware from my brother…he’s very stange thankfully he is married now and his wife does the shopping.

  41. The best gift was a beautiful necklace and mouse cookie cutter that came as a complete surprise. The worst would be the BB Gun.

  42. The best gift I received was a beautiful rose ring from my hubby for our 10th wedding anniversary. The worst was a T-shirt of questionable design.
