Plus there’s a giveaway!
The Blackwood Pack saga continues…
This is part of an on-going series by Amazon International Bestselling Author, Mary Rundle – catching up on previous titles is advised. Readers of the past books will enjoy meeting old friends once more as the pack does what it does best ̶ caring for one another and helping shifters everywhere.
Hunter always expected to be the next Alpha of the Rolling Hills Pack until he had to walk away, leaving behind his dream, forced to build a new life for himself and his brothers. Arriving with them to visit his cousins at the Blackwood Pack, he never expects to find his mate there, but when he catches his scent, it’s impossible for him to concentrate on anything else, including a secret he has that will change his cousins’ lives.
From the moment Hunter meets Jackson, tempers flare between the two Alphas as their anger builds about secrets both are keeping. Their distrust of each other grows yet they must struggle to find common ground due to their mutual responsibilities toward Hunter’s mate.
Fionn, a rare white dragon, has fought hard for his independence, believing it will protect him from relatives who want to seize his hoard. As a recent member of the Blackwood Pack, he looks forward to sharing the future with his new family. That is, until he realizes he has a mate. Needing time to sort out his feelings, he flees to his hoard, hiding from Hunter who impatiently waits for him.
Together, Fionn and Hunter must put aside past hurts and disappointments as they try to forge a new world for themselves while facing a dangerous threat to Fionn…and to the rest of the Blackwood Pack.
Long-kept secrets, a treacherous attack, an action-packed rescue, and many unexpected twists and turns make this passionate love story by Mary Rundle impossible to put down once you’ve read the first page.

WHITE KNIGHT AUDIO/ Mary Rundle/Unique Post
Hey y’all, I’m Mary Rundle and am so happy to be here for the hosting of my blog tour with an exclusive excerpt of White Knight, Book 8 of the Blackwood Pack series. Featured in this book is Fionn and Hunter, Fated Mates, who must confront trouble and danger, not to mention unexpected twists and turns, on a wild journey before finding their HEA. Nick J. Russo, an award-winning narrator, is simply amazing in his ability to make each character come to life.
Crawling out of bed at the crack of dawn wasn’t what Mason thought he’d be doing after what had gone on yesterday, but Hunter’s text woke him up; his brother said it was urgent they talk. Slipping on sweatpants, he padded out to the motorhome’s living room, flopping down on the sofa. He needed coffee but was too tired to make it—Hunter could do it if he expected Mason to be coherent. Tilting his head back, he closed his eyes, hoping to get some more shuteye before his brother showed up.
Surprised that Mason was awake, Hunter was nevertheless relieved, knowing he’d be able to pick his brother’s brain about what to do next. The great room was empty at this early hour and Hunter hurried through it to the front door. Slipping outside, he stood on the porch inhaling the morning air, feeling it infuse his soul and calm his disquieting thoughts. When they were finally in order, he headed for the motorhome.
Mason groaned as the cool air hit him when the door opened, knowing his chances for more sleep were gone. “Make coffee,” he ordered, his voice raspy.
“What?” asked Hunter.
Cracking one eye open, he stared blearily at his brother. “Make some fucking coffee if you want me to be awake for whatever you have to tell me that can’t wait for later.”
Snorting at his brother’s order, Hunter complied. Leaning against the counter, he glanced at his recumbent brother who’d been his confidante for so many years—that was, until he refused the Alpha position after their father died. When Mason confronted him privately, he should’ve explained why he’d done it, but he couldn’t take the chance the rest of his brothers might find out. So he kept quiet, driving a wedge between the two of them until the closeness they once shared was all but gone.
Looking back, Hunter now clearly saw he was wrong; he should’ve trusted his brother. He’d thought many times about making amends, but any hope of repairing their relationship ended the night their mother died. Grief isolated each from the other and Hunter watched helplessly as Mason chose to suffer alone, rebuffing all attempts by Hunter to comfort him.
Sighing, Hunter poured the coffee into two mugs, setting them on the dinette table. Loathe to wake his brother who’d dozed off again, he kicked himself for being so thoughtless; Mason deserved better. Even after Hunter shut him out, he was always at his side, always helping, always providing the counsel he needed. Shaking his head, he headed for the door, deciding to let his brother sleep.
“Where in the fuck are you going?” growled Mason.
“I was going to let you sleep,” Hunter replied. “We can talk later.”
“Fuck you!” Mason sat up, rolling his head, in an effort to get the kinks out of his neck. “Sit your ass down. I’m up and obviously whatever you have to say is important, so go ahead.” Rising, he made a beeline for his coffee, deciding to drink it black, knowing he needed a maximum caffeine fix. Grabbing the steaming mug, he took a mouthful, savoring the heat and the flavor. Then he sat down at the table. Looking at his brother through clearer eyes, now, Mason said, “Now tell me what happened last night with Jackson.”
Hunter took a sip of his coffee, before setting the mug down as he thought about where to begin. Finally, he said, “Fionn’s father tried to kill him and would have been successful if Logan hadn’t saved him in time. According to Jackson, even though the High Council gave guardianship of Fionn to Cody and his mate Dylon, my mate’s father continued to pursue him.”
“Cody is the guardian of Fionn? I don’t understand, Hunt,” Mason said. “Is your mate underage? If so, shouldn’t you be talking to Cody instead? You know, getting his permission?”
“No, he’s not…at least not anymore. After Fionn’s father died, his uncle tried to get custody. Not that he was close to my mate but, according to Jackson, he was after Fionn’s hoard.”
“I’m a little confused. Does he still have a guardian or not?”
“He doesn’t have one anymore. Last week, there was a court hearing and the judge found my mate to be of legal age.”
Smiling, Mason said, “That’s good, right? Your mate is free to go home with us.”
“Yes…no…I don’t know. Jackson told me Fionn has the right to reject me as his Fated Mate. Did you ever hear of bullshit like this? I never did.”
“What the fuck is Jackie smoking? If this is his attempt to keep you from your mate then we need to hire a lawyer,” growled Mason.
A few years ago, I wrote my first book, Dire Warning. Readers loved it and I was on my way to chronicle the Blackwood Pack, seven brothers who are gay wolf shifters in search of their fated mates—stories about love at first sight with twists and turns, angst and humor, romance and adventure and, of course, happy endings. Since then, the pack has expanded, allowing more stories to be told and different paranormals to be included. The series has become, as one reader described it…an “Epic Saga.”
Now, eleven books later, Blood Prophecy, has just been published. I love the M/M paranormal genre because it gives my imagination a lot of territory in which to roam. My mind can really run wild and come up with some amazing stuff when it doesn’t have to stay inside the box. My story ideas come to me as if they were being channeled by my characters, all of whom I love (except for a few villains). They are eager to recount their lives, loves and adventures, and are not reluctant to let it all out when it comes to revealing steamy details. My writing style is free-wheeling and uninhibited and my readers tell me they love it that way; that it makes them feel like they’re right in on the action and a member of the Blackwood Pack.
I live in the Northeast and love the beautiful change of seasons, my husband, and our quirky calico cat, though not necessarily in that order. I read a lot (good for the mind) and love gardening (good for the soul). And I’m always happy to hear from my readers and can be reached through Facebook, my private Facebook Group, Twitter, Instagram, or my website.
