About the Book:
In book #1 of the Wild Series, Wild Evolution, Colorado rancher Dan Tucker's life is turned upside-down. After surviving a mutant canine attack, Dan discovers the animal he killed is not a wild dog, but a man. To protect himself even though it was a self-defense killing, he covers up the murder. With his quiet life as bachelor rancher transformed into a constant battle of wits to keep his deep, dark secret safe, Dan finds himself at odds with everyone, including his girlfriend and his former best friend - and most of all, himself. In book #2 of the Wild Series, Wild Justice, we find Dan worrying about keeping his nocturnal life a secret as his wedding gets closer. He soon discovers that's the least of his worries...
Excerpt from Book:
Dan tosses and turns while Angela falls directly to sleep. He props up on his elbow watching her sleep. They named her right, she is an angel. I don’t think I am the man she deserves. He gives her an ever so light kiss on the cheek and whispers, “I’ll do my best.” He lies down again to try to get some sleep.
Sleep comes, but it is not restful for Dan. In his dreams, his subconscious releases its anxieties.
Everyone is seated; Dan and Angela are at the altar. The preacher is giving his wedding spiel. Suddenly his tongue seems too big for his mouth; his teeth protrude over his lips; his tongue dangles over his bottom lip and droplets of saliva drips down his chin. The preacher stops and stares with mouth hanging open in awe as Dan slobbers down the front of his tuxedo.
Dan’s face twitches, then blooms it into tingles with an irrepressible urge to scratch. When he digs at the stubbles popping out on his chin, the stubbles turn to fur.
Angela steps back in awe of his transformation. She drops her bouquet but doesn’t take her eyes off his bizarre changes. Dan sits back on his haunches and looks over the crowd in the church. Many have stood up and a few are backing up, ready to make a fast exit.
Ella stands and points her finger at him and yells out for all to hear, “I told you. I told you he has something to hide.” Angela joins the rest of the guests and backs away from Dan, who is standing on all fours at the altar. A few muffled screams can be heard in the crowd. Dan lifts his head back and gives out an ear-splitting howl. He looks over the crowd one more time, then bolts down the aisle in his altered state of being. All of the guest move out of his way as he runs out the church doors.
Dan eyes pop open, a cold sweat beads up on his forehead. He licks his lips; his mouth is cotton dry. He turns over and sees Angela still sleeping soundly. He slips off the side of the bed and tiptoes downstairs.
