As we close our Family Tree Month Feature, I’d like to talk about a staple of the romance genre–mismatched couples. Paula Abdul said it best when she said “opposites attract.” On that note…
Now, I think we all have our favorites from all kinds of eras. The newest in the family is Books With Benefits’ own JW Ashley and her newborn book, Into the Woods. Be ready to read the beautiful and epic love story of Caleb and Libby on October 29th.
Growing up hearing stories of the vampire menace, Libby Conall is the first pack heir in all remembered lore who cannot shift. Although desperate to prove to her father and her clan that she can stop a long-succession of failures, Libby still delights in the magic of her craft and the world around her…including an unexpected and chance encounter with a man, his irresistibly cute ears, and his resounding self-control.
Caleb Ulster, son of the Vampire King, cannot remember a single word uttered in defense of werewolves. A child born after the Great War, Caleb has a dark secret that makes him hated by the very people he hopes to lead. Torn apart by a wild need he neither wants nor understands, he meets Libby, whom he has sworn to assassinate, and can’t help be drawn in by her cheerful nature.
To Caleb’s surprise, Libby is a powerful ally and an earnest friend. For Libby, Caleb’s view of her is a welcome change from the frequent disapproval of her father and her people. However, when Libby unintentionally reveals her Clan’s secrets, everything changes.
As Caleb acts quickly to save Libby from both werewolves and vampires, Libby learns that he might need her more than she needs him.

Epic in scope, pointed in theme, and full of moments that make you go “squeee” and “hunh.”
