Lucy Callahan will do anything to rescue her sister from a cult, even marry a werewolf she’s just met. But the werewolves are working undercover for the government, and Lucy fears a confrontation between the agents and the cult could be deadly.
Stoker Smith longs to be the best thing that ever happened to his human mate. He wants to take her home, start their family, and compose his music. And although his pack’s treaty with the government says he doesn’t have to work undercover now that he’s mated, he promised Lucy he’d get her sister out of the cult’s heavily armed compound. Lucy’s sister is now family and to a werewolf, family is everything.
But Operation Jericho quickly turns ugly, thrusting Lucy into the middle of her worst nightmare, where she must choose: her sister or her husband.
FOUR THINGS YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT AND JERICHO BURNED
1) When I was first plotting my werewolf universe, I downloaded photos of country music stars on which to base characters. Stoker Smith, hero of And Jericho Burned, isn’t Tim McGraw, but they look an awful lot alike.
2) The heroine, Lucy Callahan, shares a surname with a former co-worker. Thanks, Andy.
3) Lucy and her sister were named after Beatles’ songs.
4) Moonsinger Beer was originally called Howler Beer. Except there really is a Howler Beer brand, so I had to change the brand name of my fictional brewery at the last minute.
Lucy is a caterer who specializes in vegetarian cuisine. She’s done her share of backstage catering for performers back in Boulder. Writer’s Salad is something she would make and Stoker (and the rest of the band) would love it because of all the berries. I call it Writer’s Salad because I take it on writing retreats—it’s the perfect healthy breakfast, dessert, and snack. One author mixes it with her yogurt; another puts it atop her cereal. Me? I eat it plain.
· 1 small carton fresh blueberries
· 1 small carton fresh raspberries
· 1 small carton fresh blackberries (black raspberries)
· 1 medium carton fresh strawberries
· Seedless green grapes
· 1 perfectly ripe mango.

Wash & dry the fruit. Hull and slice the strawberries. Stem the grapes. Peel & dice the mango. Mix all together. Refrigerate.
Country music, The Beatles, Berry Salad...YUMMY!
Thanks MJ for your secrets behind And Jericho Burned and for the awesome Writer's Salad recipe!
I grew up near Cardiff, New York, a place best known for its giant, which turned out to be a fiction so incredible, PT Barnum himself borrowed it. That's a tough act to follow, but I tried . . . by creating my own stories.
Although my 30-year career in local television included such highlights as:
being bitten by a lion
preempting a US President for a college basketball game
giving a three-time world champion boxer a few black eyes
a mention in the Drudge Report
meeting my husband
the urge to create my own stories has never gone away.
I still live in upstate New York with my husband. I'm a member of Romance Writers of America and Central New York Romance Writers. Music, and cooking are two of my passions, and I enjoy baseball and college basketball, but I'm primarily focused on wine . . . and writing.
