A Wolf’s Legacy

So what do you do when you get writer’s block? In my case it’s write some more!!

Whenever I feel like the words aren’t flowing in my current project I take the time to return to the lives of my previous characters. At the moment I’m working on my Elemental Passions series so that means I go back to my wolves. If you want to take a look in to the lives of these wonderful people then get ready.


“No Tobias,” Alex said firmly as they walked towards the nursery, Alex striding ahead while Tobias trailed behind her.

“Xandria, the world is a dangerous place. We need to protect our girls.”

“You want to lock them up in a tower Tobias. That isn’t protection, it’s prison. This is the 21st century, you can’t do things like that anymore.”

“But –”

Alex spun round on her heel and placed a finger firmly against his lips. “Tobias, I love you and the girls love you. I know what you’re worried about but they’re only three years old, in human years I might add. Boys are a long way off. Relax, when you worry it makes me worry.”

His wolf growled angrily at the idea that they might be causing their mate distress and he decided to drop the issue – for the moment. “Fine,” he conceded. “No tower.”

Alex smiled widely, placing a lingering kiss to his lips. “Good.” She turned and continued walking as though nothing was wrong leaving Tobias with his thoughts.

Dejected, Tobias walked continued walking the halls towards the nursery. His mother had instituted a girl’s day out once a month and today was the day. It left Tobias alone to care for three young infants, two of whom were already making him worry despite their age. As soon as he walked into the nursery and saw the smiling faces of his children his early anxiety faded away. He reached into their play pen, lifted each child and placed a kiss to their baby soft cheeks.

Already he could see the heartbreakers his two daughters would grow up to be and he could see the hearts he would have to literally break to keep them safe. Sighing, he reached for a sleeping Travis and stroked his downy soft black hair.

“At least I don’t have to worry about you.”

“Tobias?” Sebastian whispered, poking his head through a small crack in the door.

“In here.”

Sighing in relief, Sebastian walked into the room a baby seat in each hand and a very cheerful Wyatt carrying a third.

Tobias looked at the small babies his cousin carried curiously, a question blazing in his grey eyes. “Where’s Erica?”

“Alex and Chloe persuaded her to go on the provision that me and the babies stay here, where there’s lots of help. You’d think my mate didn’t trust me.”

“Chloe’s gone as well? I’m surprised Ryan let her go, she’s almost due to give birth.”

“I didn’t have a choice in the matter,” Ryan grumbled widening the crack in the door and stepping around a slow moving Wyatt to move to Tobias’ side. His hard features softened as he reached for Jasmine, smiling as she suckled his finger to test the strength of her one small tooth.

Sitting down after carefully arranging the baby seats, Sebastian turned to look at his cousin finally noting the stress that pinched his face. “What’s the matter Tobias?”

“Alex vetoed my tower idea again.”

“No,” Ryan cried. “The doctor said that Chloe is having twin girls. I was counting on your tower to keep them safe.”

“I’ve tried to explain that to Alex but she thinks it’s too medieval and how can I say no to my mate? There are going to be far too many stupid men out there that’ll try and use my girls because of their position. I won’t have it but I can’t be there for them all the time and Alex is thinking about sending them to human school for a year. Young pups I can deal with, they understand the consequences of trying to hurt the King’s young, they’ll have been taught that since the day they could understand words but humans?” He sounded as though the very idea terrified him.

“I don’t know how you’re going to cope Sebastian,” Ryan began. “Erica and Alex are planning to send Dylan and Wyatt to human school next year so that they can understand humans better. If it all goes well then Sophie is next.”

Sebastian smiled, looking down at his baby daughter before his eyes wandered to his sons, Matthew and Michael. His smile widening, he looked at Wyatt. “Wyatt come here for a second.” He motioned for the young boy to sit atop his legs and when he was settled wrapped an arm around his waist before turning to look at the frantic males in his family. “You two are going about this all wrong. This is how you protect your young. Wyatt, I think of you and Dylan as my family you know that right?”


“And what must you always do when it comes to family?”

“You have to protect them,” he answered simply.

“That’s right. Now look at Sophie, see how defenceless she is?” Wyatt nodded. “We have to protect Sophie because she can’t look after herself and we have to look out for Dylan because?”

“Because she’s too nice to people.”

“It’s not people I’m worried about. It’s other boys. You heard your uncles, you’re going to human school for a while next year and those boys don’t have the manners that we do. Sophie will be okay because she’s here with me but what about Dylan? Those boys will try and take advantage of her because she’s so nice. Dylan is too young to have a mate and Erica and I won’t be there, who’s going to look after her?”

“I will,” Wyatt growled angrily. “I’ll look after her. She’s my sister I can protect her.”

“Can you? Will you keep those boys away from her until her mate comes for her?”

“Of course I can.”

“You’re going to need to be strong. Sometimes Dylan might get annoyed with you but if you’re going to do this you have to stay the course. Can you do that?”

“Of course I can!” he reaffirmed, leaping to his feet.

Smiling, Tobias finally understood what Sebastian was doing. “Lily and Jasmine will need protection as well until Travis is big enough to look out for them.”

“I can do it uncle Tobias I promise.”

“Maybe you should get help,” Ryan suggested softly. “There are a lot of girls here already and when Chloe has our twins that’ll be another two. You can’t be everywhere at once.”

“You’re right. I know what to do.” With that Wyatt ran from the room filled with a sense of righteous purpose.

“And that,” Sebastian grinned. “Is how you look after your young without your mate ever getting mad at you. Erica can never stay angry with Wyatt for long and he’ll be able to be with Dylan and Sophie when we can’t be.”

“I knew you were the smart one for a reason.”

A moment of silence descended on the room before the three burst into simultaneous laughter, another woe of parenting solved.



At the sound of Wyatt’s timid voice, Sebastian turned away from his daughter and watched as Wyatt shuffled into the room. He looked to his brother, confusion shining from his eyes. Wyatt was never timid especially not when he was in his own home. The little boy’s behaviour instantly put him on his guard.

“Yes Wyatt.”

“I need to talk to you.”

Sebastian patted the sofa in invitation and Wyatt ran towards him.

“What do you need to talk about?”

“Mates,” he answered simply.

“What about them?”

“How do you know you’ve found them?”

Sebastian’s brow furrowed in confusion. “Why do you need to know that?” Though Wyatt was wise for his age he was still just a child. He didn’t need to know about how to find his mate for many years.

“Because I think I’ve found mine.”

“What?” Ryan shouted in excitement, his booming voice waking Matthew from his peaceful slumber. He quickly soothed the teary baby, rocking him gently until he was quite again. “Tell us everything,” Ryan demanded.

Excited by the prospect of Wyatt having found his mate so young, Sebastian pulled him close. “Yes, tell us everything.”

“Her name is Emily.”

“Pretty,” Sebastian admitted. “Tell us why you think she’s the one.”

“I – I went –”

“What did you do?” Ryan demanded.

“I went for a run a few days ago,” he admitted reluctantly, all too aware that he shouldn’t have gone into the woods alone.

Sebastian’s brow rose in annoyance. “If you weren’t telling me about this potential mate of yours I’d be very angry with you right now Wyatt. You know you’re not meant to wander off alone. What if something had happened to you? What would me and Erica have done?”

“It’s done now ‘Bastian,” Ryan interrupted, eager to hear what else Wyatt had to say. “He’s fine and I’m sure if something had happened to him Dylan would have known. You know just how well the bond between them is. It’s just as strong, if not stronger than ours and you always knew when I was in trouble.”

“You act as if I had a choice. If I wasn’t constantly trying to feel if you were in danger I don’t think we’d be sitting here having this discussion.”

“Whatever,” Ryan said dismissively, waving off Sebastian’s concerns. “We have more important things to worry about.” He turned his attention back to Wyatt. “So you were running in the forest this morning and…”

“There was this smell. It was so pretty…I had to follow it.”

Both Sebastian and Ryan nodded, remembering the pull that had drawn them to their mates.

“And then I saw her. She’s the most beautiful person in the whole entire universe.”

Their nodding stopped abruptly, neither able to agree with Wyatt’s claims when thoughts of their own mates were wandering through their minds.

“My wolf nearly took over. All it said was mine, mine, mine.”

Yup, Sebastian thought quietly. He’s definitely found her and so young too. He smiled widely, beaming from ear to ear with pride.

Wyatt’s smile faded and Sebastian’s eyes narrowed. There was something he wasn’t telling him. “What is it Wyatt?”

“I tried to go and say hello.”

“Obviously,” Ryan agreed.

“But he wouldn’t let me in.”

Sebastian’s eyes narrowed. “Who wouldn’t let you in?”

“Her daddy,” he said sadly. “I tried to explain that I just wanted to talk to her but he wouldn’t let me in. He told me to go home to my mummy and daddy. He said it wasn’t safe for me to be in the forest by myself.”

I’m not liking the sound of this, Sebastian thought carefully. “Go on,” he prodded.

“He wasn’t like us. He wasn’t a wolf.”

“Humans?” Ryan pushed. “There are no humans on our estates, just how far did you run?”

“To the town,” Wyatt answered sheepishly before he rushed to explain himself. “I just wanted to see the school. Alex and Erica say that me and Dylan are going to be going there soon and I just wanted to see what it looked like. I’ve never been to human school before. I smelled her at the school but I know we’re not allowed to change in front of humans so I followed her home.”

“And she didn’t see you?”

“She thought I was a puppy. When she got to her house I ran away and changed. I knocked on the door just like you taught me to Sebastian but her daddy was so mean. He wouldn’t let me anywhere near her. I really thought he was going to hurt me so I came home.”

“Have you been back?” Ryan asked knowing how strong the bonds between mates were. Even if Wyatt was young he wouldn’t have been able to resist seeing her again.

Wyatt nodded. “She’s just so pretty and she smells so nice.”

Drawing the young boy close, Ryan hugged him affectionately. “What does she smell like?”

“Cotton candy.” Ryan’s eyebrows rose but he said nothing and let Wyatt continue. “She smells so sweet. Whenever I smell her I get so hungry and all I want to eat after I’ve seen her is cotton candy.”

“Well that explains why you’ve been asking for so much of it,” Ryan said dryly. “But trust me when I say it isn’t going to be anywhere near as good as the real thing. You’ll see what I mean when you’re older.”

Sebastian had sat quietly throughout the conversation but his mind was reeling. Wyatt’s mate was human. She’d be dead before he reached maturity if action wasn’t taken. “Wyatt, I need you to tell me exactly where she lives. I’ll go and talk to her family. I’ll make them see reason.” And see what we can do about keeping her alive until you’re old enough to claim her.

Eager to be able to see his mate Wyatt quickly rattled off directions for Sebastian.

“I’ll be back soon Ryan, look after the kids.”

At Ryan’s nod of agreement Sebastian took off. He shifted as soon as he was clear of the door and sped off to the location Wyatt had given him. The woods blurred into nothing more than streaks of green and brown as his long stride ate up the terrain. Keeping the idea of a cotton candy fragrance at the forefront of his thoughts Sebastian quickly came to a clearing where a small cabin was nestled snugly between the trees.

Sharp golden eyes watched as he waited for the objection of Wyatt’s frustrations to come into view. He didn’t have to wait long. A little girl came running out of the house, her dark hair tied back in messy pigtails, her blue eyes intense as she picked flowers. The sweet smell of sugar drifted from her in waves…and so did something else. Sebastian took a final deep breath, ensuring he’d be able to find her wherever she was. His brows drawn tight in confusion he trotted away from the clearing shifting easily into his human form when he was far out of sight and hearing range. He reached for his phone and dialled his brother his lips drawn tight into a scowl.

“So?” Ryan teased. “Did you find her?”

“Of course I did.”


“Do you want the good news first or the bad news?”

“Give me the good stuff.”

“Well on the bright side, I scented her and she’s not human but the other scent coming from the cabin was. So my main concern is sorted, she isn’t going to die before Wyatt reaches maturity.”

“You’re right, that’s definitely good news. So tell me the bad news.”

“There’s no way I’m going to be able to talk Erica and Alex out of sending Dylan and Wyatt to human school now.”

Jen: Damn! This wasn't planned just came out that way....
I guess this means that once the Elementals are finished Wyatt 
is going to getting a book of his own....
Another story....Another day....One thing at a time.

      Hiya Amy I’m glad to hear you enjoyed A Wolf’s Duty and are interested in A Wolf’s legacy. The good news is that I am working on the follow up to what you’ve read so far and it will be published as a full novel called A Wolf’s Obsession. The first few chapters are available on this blog and I hope you enjoy reading them. In the meantime if you haven’t read the second or third books in the Love Bites series then I hope you get the chance to before A Wolf’s Obsession is completed.

      • amy pycroft

        28/12/2012 at 8:17 am

    I’ve just finished A Wolf’s Pride, you’re latest one. Honestly, when I read them. I can never stop. I bring my kindle to school and read them there, or whenever I have free time. At the moment I’m on holiday so that’s where I’ve been reading it. I honestly can wait for the last book, so excited! (:

  29. Tiffany

    19/03/2013 at 12:41 am

    I was wondering when your next book after A Wolf’s Pride will be released? And as well as what the title might be, because to be honest, I’m a little confused.

    • Jennyt82

      31/03/2013 at 7:03 pm

      The next book in the Love Bites series will be A Wolf’s Obsession and I’m working on it right now. I have a few more chapters to complete before I can start the editing process but I hope to be finished with the book by the summer at the latest. I’ll try harder to update my blog so that you guys know what’s going on.

  30. Jackie Ivan

    05/04/2013 at 4:42 am

    Sorry I’m a recent fan but what is the difference between wolf’s legacy and wolf’s obsession? Also, are you coming out with more books in the series?

    • Jennyt82

      10/04/2013 at 6:25 pm

      A Wolf’s Legacy started as a series of disconnected ideas that I used to keep my writing flowing when I was working on the Elemental Passions series however one of the ideas from A Wolf’s Legacy with Wyatt and his future mate stuck and morphed into A Wolf’s Obsession.
      At the moment A Wolf’s Obsession is the last book I have planned for the Love Bites series but that’s what I thought when I wrote A Wolf’s Pride so you never know. I hope that answers your questions.

      • Robin

        23/05/2013 at 3:49 am

        You should write a book about how tobias parents met.

      • Jennyt82

        09/06/2013 at 3:43 pm

        That’s an interesting idea I’ll have to think about that.

    • Jennyt82

      26/07/2013 at 8:18 pm

      Wyatt and Kass aren’t as young in A Wolf’s Obsession which allows me to write some smutty scenes for them.

    13/09/2013 at 4:00 am

    I do not know where I should write about how you finished A Wolf’s Obsession but I want you to know that I just bought it yesterday and I’m already done with it, it was that good. Please write more!!!!!!!!!!
