Pride's Run Guest Blog and Giveaway

Hanging out with the guys.
Cat Kalen
When I was younger my father once told me that guys and girls couldn’t be friends, because eventually deeper feelings would develop—either the guy would fall for the girl or vice versa.  I didn’t believe him, of course.  After all, I was a teen and knew my parents had no idea what they were talking about.  But in my later teen years, I did notice that when guys and girls started hanging out for any length of time relationships eventually did evolve.    

Thinking back to my high school years, I had a lot of great girlfriends that I hung out with on a regular basis, but I really, really loved hanging out with the guys, too.  They were so much fun to be with and they didn’t talk about each other behind their backs the way girls sometimes do.  No one worried about hair or makeup or clothes and we all just had good old fashioned fun, whether we were tossing a ball around on the basketball court, hanging out at the lake, or playing video games at the mall.  (My favourite was the pin ball machine.  I’d toss a quarter in and play for hours!)

I loved those guys, and all was great until one decided the he liked me and wanted to be more than just friends.  But the real problems began when his best friend decided he liked me, too.  The dynamics of our relationship quickly changed, and I soon found myself in a sticky situation because I simply wanted to remain friends with both.  And the last thing I wanted to do was come between two friends.  I eventually pulled away, but I have to say I sure do miss those guys. 

In Pride’s Run, seventeen year old Pride finds herself in a similar situation, except the two alpha males who want her and are fighting to claim her as their mate hate each other.  Pride cares deeply for these two boys, and knows she can only have one mate, which begs the question, can she have a relationships with one without alienating the other.  Can these two feuding wolves ever become friends, or at least come to an understanding? 

I just finished writing Pride Unleashed, (Late February 2012 release) the second story in this series and by the end of the book Pride must make a decision.  Who will she pick?  What will happen when she chooses?
In the third book that I’m working on now, Pride’s Pursuit, (coming winter 2012) these three wolves are in for some rough times, because they must learn to work together to save a world.  What I want to know is will Pride’s choice in her mate put an end to the war on wolves or will it endanger the very existence of her kind?

So tell me have you ever found yourself coming between two friends?  If so how did you handle it?    
Pride’s Run
By Cat Kalen

Genre: Paranormal YA


Seventeen year old Pride is a tracker—a werewolf with a hunger for blood. Taught to trick and to lure, she is the perfect killing machine.

Kept leashed in the cellar by a master who is as ruthless as he is powerful, Pride dreams of freedom, of living a normal life, but escape from the compound is near impossible and disobedience comes with a price.

When she learns her master intends to breed her she knows she has to run.

But Pride soon learns that if she is to survive in the wild, she must trust in the boy who promises her freedom, the same boy she was sent to hunt.

With life and death hanging in the balance the two find themselves on the run from the Paranormal Task Force—officers who shoot first and ask questions later—as well as her master’s handlers.

Can Pride flee the man who has held her captive since birth and find sanctuary in the arms of a boy who has captured her heart? Or will her master find her first?
