Chapter One

Millions of spiritual creatures walk the Earth,
Unseen, both when we wake, and when we sleep.
John Milton, Paradise Lost, Book IV

A sound. A shadow. The breath stilled in my lungs. I froze mid-stride, icy tentacles of fear twisted around my desperate heart. I waited with every fiber of my body alert to my surroundings. This close to my goal I could not, nay, would not, be denied. A board creaked. The certainty I was not alone slithered through my mind. Evil surely awaited in the rising mist of the gloaming. It crept silently in over the water and beclouded the bottom of the river below. I had to hurry. I willed my body to move and lurched to the dark wooden railing, grasping it with stiffened fingers. Looking down, I could see the mist rising thicker and settling on the cold rushing water. I shuddered. I fancied the swirling mist forming itself into the searching fingers of death. A macabre welcome surely awaited me with absolution for my sins, an end to the agony that my life had become. I felt no hesitation in my mission.

About the Author:

Angelina J. Windsor, Sugar & Spice and Everything…Naughty, hails from Canada. Married to the love of her life, she has combined her love of romance and the paranormal with her interest in exploring highly charged erotica in a historical setting in her newest book, Seventh Son, first book in the Dragonstone Wolves Series.

A love of reading and writing sent her on her life’s quest to connect with others over the written word, “for having our voices heard is akin to sharing our souls”. She hopes her characters will touch your heart and help you escape the bonds of this Earth as she surrounds you with an otherworldly experience where werewolves and goddesses roam freely and break all the rules. She loves to be approached about the journey of writing.

Where are you from?
I’ve lived all over western Canada, but I was born in Portage la Prairie. I was only there for a short when I was a baby. Having been moved so much shaped me into the person I am today, for better or worse.
Tell us your latest news? I am so pleased about a review for my book on release day. So exciting. You work hard as a writer and then to have someone enjoy it enough to write a review, well, it blew my mind!
When and why did you begin writing? Early on I was one of those—the dreaded teenage poet.
When did you first consider yourself a writer? I think the first time I was accepted by a publishing house. It was such wonderful feedback that someone thought my work worthy of preparing it for its best debut into the world.
What inspired you to write your first book? Stephen King’s, The Green Mile. I wanted to feel what it was like to be a healer, and what better way than to live the experience through your heroine. I had just lost a brother to cancer so I really needed to feel some control. Writing the book helped me recover.
Do you have a specific writing style? I just discovered writing Seventh Son that I have a strong voice inside that was unexpected. A new way of crafting words and ideas that has captivated me. It fit the Windswept Women series perfectly according to my wonderful editor, Rebecca. I’m so enamored of this new style that I want to write all my books this way!
How did you come up with the title? I love research. I read many a werewolf encyclopedia to get the proper information for the legend I wanted to craft, and discovered that the seventh son is thought to be the one to turn into a wolf in ancient times.
Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp? That love conquers all.
How much of the book is realistic? I think the characters are the most realistic. The legend is based on Avalon and Merlin’s daughter, Morganas. There is magic of course, but I want the reality to be gritty enough to feel real to the reader.
Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life? Not really, though I think it’s not uncommon to fight for those you love most.
What books have most influenced your life most? Stephen Kings, Salem’s Lot and Margaret Mitchell’s Gone with the Wind.
If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor? Hmm, good question. I have been blessed with help from so many I don’t want to say and leave anyone out.
What book are you reading now? I’m always reading books. Today it is Her Husband’s Harlot by Grace Callaway. Tomorrow it will be someone else. I think of reading as hitting all the highs for me: research and entertainment.
Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest? There are so many wonderful new authors I hesitate to point any out!
What are your current projects? The sequels to Seventh Son, Hellfire, Twice-Born, and Forbidden. Also, my contemporary romance, The Power of Tess, being released soon from Ellora’s Cave. I like to keep a few projects on the go.

What would you like my readers to know? That writing is as necessary to my life as breathing, and I can only hope to touch a life for a little time with the magic of storytelling.  I believe that having our voices heard is akin to sharing our souls. And that all we have as humans is the power of the journey…
