Raphael’s Power

Blackwood Pack - Book 2

by Mary Rundle

Dr. Ian Wallace, a rare Scottish Wolf, has dedicated his life to saving and healing wolf shifters by joining Frontline Doctors. Determined never to take a mate, he avoids relationships and is content to live a nomadic life, taking assignments to wild and remote places. That is, until an old friend asks him for a favor which Ian’s wolf will not let him refuse. Now on his way to the Blackwood Pack compound, his wolf becomes frantic and Ian learns not only that he has a Fated Mate, but that his Fated Mate is in danger.

Colton was forced to give up his dreams of becoming a nurse and joining Frontline Doctors when tragedy befell his family. Instead, he healed sick animals around his home while hiding from a pack who wanted him dead. Given the chance to use his skills, Colton seizes it and embarks on a journey that will reveal just how special he is.

A kidnapping, slave auction, revelations of long-kept family secrets and a rare, powerful gift from the gods are some of the surprises in store for both of them until they finally find their way into each other’s hearts after discovering neither is who the other thought he was.

"You lied to me!” he said. “You lied to your Fated Mate! I can’t believe you’d do that.” Ian turned over and stood, looking down at the man who was just like everyone else in his life—a liar.
“Babe, I was going to tell you today. Jackson told…”
“Oh, so you can tell the truth to Jackson but you can’t tell me—the one who is supposed to mean more to you than any other person in the world.” Ian stormed into the closet, grabbing his jeans while keeping up his tirade. “You know what,” he said as he hopped back into their bedroom, yanking his jeans on, “I’ve had enough. My whole life has been a lie. Shit even what I am has been a lie and I thought maybe—just maybe —when I found you, there would be one person I could trust. But no, you’re just like the rest!”
Ian headed for their door. Stopping short, he whipped around and shot his final salvo, “I’m going for a run. When I get back, I want you and your shit out of this room.


I don’t care where you go but just stay away from me.”
Colton’s eyes were round and his jaw dropped as he listened to the door slam loud enough to wake the dead. What the fuck just happened? Slowly he went over everything he said and found nothing to justify Ian’s reaction. Then examining Ian’s words, he groaned. His mate had figured out he’d lied to him and for some reason, instead of letting him explain, Ian had kicked Colton out of his life.


About the Author

A few years ago, I wrote my first book, Dire Warning. Readers loved it and I was on my way to chronicle the Blackwood Pack, seven brothers who are gay wolf shifters in search of their fated mates—stories about love at first sight with twists and turns, angst and humor, romance and adventure and, of course, happy endings. Since then, the pack has expanded, allowing more stories to be told and different paranormals to be included. The series has become, as one reader described it…an “Epic Saga.”
Now, twelve books later, Lord Manetu has just been published. I love the M/M paranormal genre because it gives my imagination a lot of territory in which to roam. My mind can really run wild and come up with some amazing stuff when it doesn’t have to stay inside the box. My story ideas come to me as if they were being channeled by my characters, all of whom I love (except for a few villains). They are eager to recount their lives, loves and adventures, and are not reluctant to let it all out when it comes to revealing steamy details. My writing style is free-wheeling and uninhibited and my readers tell me they love it that way; that it makes them feel like they’re right in on the action and a member of the Blackwood Pack.
I live in the Northeast and love the beautiful change of seasons, my husband, and our quirky calico cat, though not necessarily in that order. I read a lot (good for the mind) and love gardening (good for the soul). And I’m always happy to hear from my readers and can be reached through Facebook, my private Facebook Group, Twitter, Instagram, or my website.
