Wolf expert Maddox “Ripp” Rippington knows nothing about her past and has only ever felt at home among her wolves at Willow Creek Wolf Sanctuary. When the Sanctuary is shut down, she’s lost. The only clue to her past is a birth certificate with the name Ansel Wolfgang on it, but she has never been brave enough to track her father down. Until now.
Kindergarten teacher Kyra Wolfgang is more than attracted to the mysterious human who arrives in Wolfgang County, a human as dominant and confident as any wolf she has ever met. For the first time in her life, Kyra knows the passion she has always longed for. But with the Wolfgang Alpha and Second distrustful of Ripp’s sudden appearance and her claim of a connection to the pack, does Kyra and Ripp’s love stand a chance?

Jenny was kind enough to answer a couple of questions about her new release!
Why did you want to write this book, specifically?
Soul Of The Pack is the second in the Wolfgang series, and I wanted to explore the idea of a human feeling kinship with wolves, feeling at home with wolves, having everything in common with wolves, but being human. The human in this case is Maddox ‘Ripp’ Rippington and she, a bit like those who have struggled with their sexuality, felt like there is something wrong with them because they do not conform to society’s norms and gender roles, is emotionally scarred and feels segregated from human society, and all alone in the world.
When she finds the society of Wolfgang County, she sees people who think like her, feel like her, and discovers that she is perfectly normal. Exactly like the first time you meet other gay people, you go to your first gay group, pub, club, and see other people just like you. You feel validated. You are just as you were meant to be, and I thought the parallel with a human having partial wolf heritage, or the soul of a wolf, an interesting one to make.
What do you like best about it?
The best thing is that in Wolfgang County you are not judged by your gender. Your own nature decides what place you will hold in wolf society. A female can be a natural warrior, and a male could be a natural caregiver. Wolf society in this universe does not make you conform. It allows you to express your own inner self.
Plus on a side note the wolves mate for life, which as an utterly unashamed romantic, makes me sigh with delight.
Can you tell the readers something about Soul of the Pack that they might not know just from reading the book?
Soul Of The Pack is a novella that sets up an entirely new direction for Wolfgang County. The next book, Blood of the pack will be a full length novel and out next year. This novella is a little taster of what’s to come, if you can read between the lines.
In ten words or less, tell us why we should buy this book?
It’s a passionate love story, and one of finding acceptance.
