Witch vs Werewolf in Love Redeems (A Redcliffe Novel) #TheRedcliffeNovels

Happy Hump Day! Since we are so close to Halloween, I decided to share an excerpt from book 3 in the Redcliffe novels series, Love Redeems. Jessica has embraced her heritage as a witch and is causing chaos in the werewolf pack, much to Danny Mason’s annoyance.

Excerpt:

“Of course we frighten the alpha,” she said scornfully, in my mind, “He is but a wolf. We are far superior. Allow me to demonstrate.”

And she sprang forward without warning, heading straight for my body. I cried out, trying to move away from Danny and Simon, but I was too slow. My body convulsed as Suri merged her spirit with mine. I felt it happen, but I was powerless to react. I had no idea what I was dealing with. I was still just a witch in training. Opening my eyes, I turned slowly, searching for the alpha male. Danny was standing in the doorway, staring at me, his own power flaring, swirling around him in a delicious storm of turmoil. Licking my lips, I advanced upon him slowly, stalking my prey. My body felt lithe and supple, and while I still looked and walked like a human, I could feel a tail swishing behind me, and my muscles were that of the snow tiger. She was superimposed around my body, and both wolves could clearly see her.

“Jessica,” Danny said, shaking his head, “Jessica, please don’t do this. Send her away. Fight her.”
I laughed, and my voice sounded deep and throaty, ending in a growl.

“I do not want to send her away,” I said, “I want to embrace her power. She is my tiger. We work together.”

“You don’t mean that,” Danny replied, “Remember who I am.”
“You are the alpha male,” I said, “You are worthy of our attention.”

“Jessica,” Danny said, “I do not want to play with your tiger. I want you,” he paused, staring at me with glowing blue eyes, “Jessica, I want you.” He said again.

I hesitated, mulling over his words. Something stirred within me, a memory of another man who looked identical to the alpha. The other man was not a wolf. He was dead. I didn’t want a dead thing. I wanted heat, power, and life. I moved towards the alpha, my body preparing to pounce. My movements were smooth, agile and feline. I loved the way I moved, so graceful and delicate, so strong. I pounced.

#TheRedcliffeNovels Series

The Redcliffe novels series follow the adventures of bookshop owner Jessica Stone as she meets a man and falls in love, only to discover the hidden werewolf secrets of her close friends. That includes Simon Bunce, manager of the Ship Inn, who turns out to be lieutenant to the Redcliffe werewolf pack, and lover to the wolf alpha Danny Mason. He fights to protect his master from the ethereal animal familiar who threatens to claim their pack. Who knew the Cornish coast could be so deadly?

A Halloween Poem

It’s the spookiest week of the year and today I share with you a poem written by my 8-year-old daughter. She was inspired recently when I attended an online poetry class. Tell us what you think of it in the comments!

Halloween

Halloween is spooky

And very, very gloomy.

It’s got spiders

But no gliders

It is code black

Not cute pink

It is so dark

With no spark

Maybe you could make it bright

But not as bright as the daylight.

By Georgina Green (age 8)

Choosing the Right High School

I cannot believe we have reached this milestone. It is time to apply for High School for our eldest daughter, who is now in her final year at Primary School. Excuse me while I cry in the corner for a minute.

Ok, I’m back! Seriously, this is a huge deal for me. Back in the early 90s when I started high school, we simply went to the local school that we could walk to. There was no choice of neighbouring schools, we weren’t Catholic, my parents had no expectations of finding a school that was best for me and my siblings. How times have changed. We have been invited to school open evenings (pre- and post-Covid), we have pored over prospectuses, we have studied bus routes, and we have spoken to our friends about their experiences of choosing the right high school. It seems like a monumental task.

We are fortunate here in mid Cheshire to have several good schools within the catchment area. There is one in our town which is where we assumed we would send our children to. My husband and I both walked to school in our home town (he went to the rival Catholic school), he had a much better school experience than I did, and we felt that our local high school would be sufficient. Then we visited a girls’ high school in the nearby town and suddenly it wasn’t so clear. Our daughter loved it! We loved it. She will have to catch a bus and leave home earlier than she currently does, but she is excited about this new school possibility.

The girls’ high school is a ten-minute drive from home and the bus goes right past our house on the route. It is a large school, much bigger than the one in our town that we previously thought we would be applying for. This high school was welcoming, modern, well equipped and seems to have something for everyone. I think it was the purpose-built dance studio and drama studio that clinched it for our daughter, but she fell in love. She can study dance and drama at GCSE level if she wants to. I never had that opportunity. She will have a business studies class as part of her curriculum. She has access to an engineering workshop where the girls are encouraged to explore STEM subjects, build electric cars, and be part of the future with design and technology.

I still remember being humiliated in Year 9 by my electronics teacher because I struggled to understand a basic circuit board. He made me sit at my desk almost in tears after shouting at me in front of the whole class, and guess what, I lost interest in technology after that because I thought I wasn’t good enough. My high school experience was poor by comparison, and I was anxious about this transition for my daughter. I now feel more confident about our decision because I truly feel that she will be encouraged to develop her natural skills and talents and to learn new ones, which ultimately will give her confidence and capability to pursue whatever career she chooses in the future.

How was your experience of high school, and how did that inform your decision for your children? Please share in the comments.
