A to Z Challenge – M for Mate

Hi all,

Well, we’re up to M so halfway through the alphabet. I hope you’re enjoying it so far (I know I’m having fun sharing lots of wolfieness with you all lol!) Today we’re talking wolf mates – hey, I am a romance writer after all 😉

Once a wolf has found a mate, the male and female usually stay together for life. They are devoted parents and maintain sophisticated family ties.

The fact that wolves mate for life, and have such strong social groups and family ties makes it easier to combine the wolf and human sides of my shifters. After all, they have the common theme of searching for a partner to spend their life with.
