Wendy Sparrow Gets Past My Defenses

Wendy SparPast My Defensesrow delivers a sexy and fun paranormal romp with a twist in her June release, Past My Defenses. The heroine, Vanessa (Nessa) is a shape-shifting Lycan heroine with some pretty serious allergies. After a run through pollen infested woods, a tangle with a cat triggers a reaction that knocks her out.  She wakes up to find herself locked in a cage and scent mated to a very puzzled but completely intrigued human, Dane. No fast talking on her part will convince him that he didn’t see what he just saw as she shifted into her human form. Her very naked human form. 

Sparks fly and the tension builds as they are caught between the pack’s Alpha leader, poachers and the irresistible bond growing between them.

Dane is strong, sweet and sexy, and not afraid to challenge Nessa’s alpha ruler when it comes to matters concerning her. He’s everything readers want from their literary hero. In this story however, it is Nessa who captures my heart and carries the day. Quirky, flighty and carrying a short fuse, she checks off character flaws like a how-to list from “How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days”. It’s no secret I love me a damaged hero but they are a lot more prevalent  than damaged heroines, hence my fascination here.

Bless her little furry heart, Nessa and her list of issues are right up my alley. At times she’s enough to drive a man, human or wolf, bat shit crazy and she doesn’t hesitate to go her own way when she feels she must.  That makes her interesting and someone I can relate to.

Granted, it might make also her my long lost sister… but that’s a blog post for another time.

Vanessa is the fastest Lycan around. In wolf form, the only threat she can’t outrun is her allergies. After a feline dander-bomb takes her down, she wakes up naked in a cage staring at a hot park ranger who had no idea what he’d trapped. But ooooh, he smells so good. Mine.

Dane hoped to tame the silver wolf in his kennel, but all bets are off with the deliciously sweet Vanessa on two legs. Her temper makes his pulse race, and he can’t escape the feeling they belong together.

They’re hot as a forest fire even before they scent-match, but Glacier Peak’s Alpha considers Dane a danger to the pack. Meanwhile, Lycans are being poached, and Vanessa has been targeted. Dane will have to keep her close to protect her, but with Vanessa in heat and mad to mate, who will protect him?
