Celebrating Sandra Sookoo's New Historical Paranormal Release

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating a new historical paranormal romance from Sandra Sookoo.

A WOLFISH SCANDAL by Sandra Sookoo

He has nothing to live for. She has nothing to lose. Together, they have everything to gain.

The year is 1863 and Lyndal Carson's life is at a premium. Afflicted with a heart ailment wherein she can drop dead at any time, she makes a pact with herself to create one scandal and to really live before she dies. Tired of being a handmaiden to her family, she writes the letter that will change her destiny.

Grey Rutledge, a werewolf who is hounded by a reporter and haunted by memories, endeavors to provide a diversion large enough that the paper will forget its interest. He invites twelve women to his estate on the premise of choosing one of them for his mate. After losing his family, the only thing he wants is heirs and a woman by his side.

As the days go on, both Lyndal and Grey find that elusive piece missing from their lives. When their respective secrets are revealed, they both run the risk of losing everything. Danger catches them unaware during an innocent afternoon but it's what is decided as life hangs in the balance that will change their lives forever.

  1. Good morning Sandra - Happy Valentines Day and super congrats on your new release!!! And congrats on it already being a bestseller! You must be happy dancin' for sure!

    Wow - what a great storyline, I can't wait to read it. How did the idea for this story come about and will we see these character or this world you created again in another book? I think it would make a great series!

    Tell us all about the new book and what else you've been up to.

    Hope you enjoy your special day and your launch party and I hope A WOLFISH SCANDAL is your biggest seller yet!

  2. Thanks for having me today!

    When I saw A Wolfish Scandal was already a best seller (the night before it officially released) I was shocked but pleased :-)

    How did the idea come to me? Well, I've recently become fascinated with the Civil War and wanted to see what Indiana's role in the War was. After lots of research and a visit to a living history museum here, the idea was born.

    Will it be a series? Yup. I'm already working on the sequel, which is almost halfway done :-)

  3. Oh boy! Congrats on this new release, Sandra--it sounds awesome! And yay for the sequel! (I so do love a series!)

    Do you have fun Valentine's Day plans today?

  5. Congrats, Sandra! This book sounds like a real winner. Your bio says that you've also written sci-fi. Are these romances as well? (Because everything is better with romance in the mix.) :)


  6. Sandra, this story sounds lovely! I like that they are both a little broken and can only be healed by each other. I adore paranormal romance and historical romance. This sounds like something I will love.

  7. Hey Fedora,

    Do I have fun plans for Valentine's Day? LOL No! I went out for lunch with my hubby today at our favorite Chinese place, but other than that, we're staying in. :-)

  8. Hi Teresa!

    Yes, the next book will feature more werewolves :-) I'm working on Franklin's story :-)

  9. Hi Ashley,

    Yes indeed my sci-fi stories have some sort of romance in them. Blink, Damaged Cargo, and Fractured all have some degree of romance and feature strong women. Same goes for Ricochet which releases later this month :-)

  10. Hi Stacie!

    I love blending genres, and when the opportunity came up to make the hero a werewolf, well, I was thrilled when I discovered it would fit and work well!

  11. I enjoy historicals mixed with paranormal elements. What did you use from the living history museum in your story?

  12. Congratulations on the release of A WOLFISH SCANDAL! It sounds really interesting, and I like the cover. I enjoyed reading the excerpt and it made me want to read more. :)

    Do you have a favorite book that you've written?

    Happy Valentine's Day!


  13. Hi Lindseye!

    Well, the living history museum around here has a whole Civil War section dedicated to Indiana's one "skirmish" of the war. I talked to the volunteers who had to answer in period speak and from their own points of view. It was just an interesting experience :-)

  14. Hi Annalisa!

    A favorite book of mine that I've written? Hmm, that's a bit hard to say, but I loved writing the hero in Vegetarian at Midnight. I loved writing the heroine in Wedgie Tales, and I loved the story line of Marking Time :-) Recently, the characters from A Wolfish Scandal have taken over my life. I guess that's why I'm writing a sequel LOL

  15. Hi Sandra congrats on your new release I love your books am looking forward to jumping into this one .Have a great weekend.

  16. This sound like a great read. Do you always write historical romance or was this a new genre for you? I love finding new authors and I can't wait to check out your new book congrats on the release


  17. Thanks Wanda! Hope you enjoy!

    Hi Nawnee :-) I've always written historical stories. It's my "go to" genre :-)
