Blurb from goodreads:

Coloring outside the lines can sting like hell…

Shot by a Huntress, his wolf trapped within him, Dyami Storm is battling a poison that is eating him alive. His only hope is finding his mate, but without his wolf to guide him, he doesn’t know where to look.

The second the sexy bad boy stumbles into her tattoo shop, smelling of booze and oozing attitude, Summer Sinclair knows he’s trouble. She should turn him away, but a strange magnetic pull compels her to help him out with a little ink.

When Summer’s boyfriend walks through the door, Dyami senses he’s in the presence of a Hunter, and the Hunter recognizes him as a wolf. With hackles raised, a weapon coming at him, Dyami’s only choice snaps into place. Bite Summer, marking her as his—and unleashing her powers as a Spell Weaver.

On the run from Hunters and losing his fight against the poison, Dyami is in a race against time to convince Summer her power could change the course of the war…and that his fate is in her hands.

Warning: Sexually explicit. Tattooed, rock star drummer with a tender heart seeking his one true mate. Tough little tattoo artist with a special talent for spells. Lots of hot and heavy, wet and sweaty.

Bea's Thoughts:

"Spell Weaver" is another hot installment in Addams' "Order of the Wolf" series. Dyami is a sweetie despite his rocker status and bad boy looks. He's also a werewolf, one who's slowly dying,one whose wolf has hidden and now Dyami is stuck in human form. Aubrey, whom we met in book two, "Wolf Slayer" has been trying to help him, with no luck. Then Dyami walks into a tattoo parlor and WHAM! He meets his Huntress, his mate. Too bad she's clueless. :D Summer knows nothing about werewolves or the supernatural but she learns rapidly. Her Hunter mate is a jerk and his logic is faulty to say the least; his behavior actually pushes her away from him and towards Dyami. :P

"Spell Weaver" fleshes out the world some more, clarifying some questions I had and gives us two wonderful characters. Summer has a lot to learn and she was a little slow at times to catch on but once she does, she really shines. She adapts quickly and doesn't hesitate to jump in. She may look like a pixie but she's strong, smart, and funny. She and Dyami click right away. She knows who he is, if not what, but isn't overwhelmed by or caught up in the glamor of his work. He respects her tattooing talent, encourages her magical abilities, and doesn't push her too hard, giving her a choice about whether or not to jump in and join him or become a Huntress.

"Spell Weaver" is sexy, hot, sweet, fun, and I enjoyed it quite a lot. It's a strong addition to the series and I'm looking forward to the next one.

Jax's Thoughts:

Hot, badass rocker werewolves. Yep, this series is all about the fun. :D I enjoy watching each guy fall hard for his soul mate. Dyami's connection has the added bonus of being his saving grace. Summer's intuition and innate ability to use mysterious (to her) symbols give her an advantage against the Hunters that are chasing them, and the strength to help Dy fight against the metaphysical infection that has plagued him for a few books now. What I love about Dy is that he never pushes Summer to choose him over the Hunter she was dating. Regardless of what she means for his chances at survival, he lets her come to her own conclusions, giving her the truth as gently as possible in a crazy situation. 

"Spell Weaver" is a great next step into the series. Each book leads us a little further into the world and mythology, and makes me want to wander a little deeper. *grins* If I'm lucky I may find my own werewolf.

Jax: When you need a quick smile, what's your favorite silly kitten video?

Angela: Oh no, now you’ve done it!! Cat videos are my kryptonite! They are so distracting! I share too many of them on FB. I make my coworkers watch them with me. I snicker and giggle to myself when I watch them and overall come off as a crazy cat lady for sure. I’m unapologetic though because cats are the best.

This could go on for days.

Jax: You have quite the collection of tattoos. Do you think them out months in advance, or do you like to be more spur or the moment?

Angela: A little from column A, a little from column B. Sometimes I find an image on Pinterest and pin it and it sits there for months, sometimes I find something and must have it done immediately. Basically when I decide it’s time to get more ink, I go back to my collection of tattoo ideas and see what’s really resonating with me. Sometimes my artist emails me with something she’s drawn up and asks me if I want it done. Sometimes she puts a call out for ideas or is in the mood for a certain kind of art and we work together to find just the right image. I know right now what parts of my body require more ink so it’s only a matter of time before I fill them up with something.
 
Jax: Do you find pics of models or actors to help visualize your heroes? Do you have any sneak peeks for future male leads?

Angela: I absolutely do this for all of my stories! I find images before I set out a description in my outline/character profile. I know that a lot of readers really liked Lance from Wolves’ Bane so I’ll share the picture I used to build his character.

 


Angela is giving away a signed copy of Wolves’ Bane, limited edition Order of the Wolf keychain and a signed Cursed bookmark! Giveaway is only open to Canadian and U.S. addresses.

    1. Maybe for about 5 minutes. She's quick to dump the boyfriend but he doesn't want to accept that. It's not a big part of the story.
