I've thought of a sequel to "The Wolf Loves The Dove" story- it's a new generation of Mantles. I made it as canon as possible. Let me know if I should continue.

The Cubs At Play-Reginald, Ronald, Grace and Raven Mantle
Book Two of the Reggie Series-The Children of the Wolf
I had not planned on a sequel to the story of Reggie and Betty Mantle, but my cousin Toya, also known as writer T.M. Smith had suggested a sequel to the Wolf. I hope you enjoy their story. I chose to use wolf cubs instead of pups because the name cubs is a much sexier word than pups, don’t you think?
The Mantle ‘Cubs’ was a name that the four of them hated, and no one dared call any of them a wolf cub to their faces, They had inherited the hated name from their father’s infamous past life. They were the children of Reginald Richard Mantle IV, the divinely handsome ex-world renowned playboy entrepreneur, and millionaire, and Betty Anne Cooper, the beautiful famous author and fashion designer. Reggie had been once known to the world as “The Wolf” and his reputation had been transferred to his four children.
The oldest of the ‘cubs’ consisted of twenty-three year old identical twins, Reginald Richard Mantle V and Ronald Avery Mantle. Their mother had decided that everyone would call their oldest son ‘Rick’ instead of Reggie, because for her there would only be one Reggie in their home. Reggie Mantle IV had turned out to be the model husband and father. He loved his family fiercely, and would defend them to the death if needed. He wanted more than four children, but Betty had her hands full, and refused to have a nanny to help her.
“I won’t have any female alone in this house with my husband except our mothers,” she would tell him. She would not risk someone trying to entice her husband away and Reggie did not argue with his wife about that. Rick and Ronald were truly identical twins and only those closest to them could tell them apart. Ronald was more like his mother and his brother Rick was worse than his father had been before he married Betty. Ron was honorable and sweet, while Rick was spice and would lie to get his way if necessary.No one could really figure out where Rick got his deceitful ways from because neither of his parents were like that. The youngest ‘cubs’ were Grace Elizabeth aged twenty-one and the youngest named Raven Anne who was only nineteen. Ronald and even Rick were fiercely protective of their younger sisters.
They were all beautiful children. The twins were the spitting image of their father with his dark hair, green eyes and striking features. The boys had grown to six foot one inch tall frames, athletic, and muscular builds. Grace and Raven had beautiful long legs, flawless skin, voluptuous figures and model good looks. Grace had inherited Betty’s honey blonde hair but had light hazel eyes like her maternal grandmother. And Raven was a mix of her parents with Reggie’s head of black hair and her mother’s piercing blue eyes.
The Mantle children were more than pretty faces and all exceled academically. Grace decided that she would pursue a medical career, and had been accepted to medical school at UCLA. Rick and Ronald had already graduated from Business College and worked with their father learning the publishing business. Raven had just completed her first year of college, and was majoring in business as well. The plan was for her to go into one of the Mantle Enterprises and be groomed to run one of them one day.
The Mantle Empire consisted of a huge newspaper distribution, with fashion and ‘gentlemen’s magazines’. Reggie also had kept his famous public relations firm. He only managed a few select high profile clients. Reggie was the editor-in-chief of Player’s Magazine and it was hugely popular.
Summer was finally here and all of the cubs had different plans. This year for the first time, they were all going off separately and doing their own things. None of them had any idea what the next couple of months had in store for each of them. What would come next would be a story of love, sex, drugs, friendship and rock and roll. This is the story of the Mantle Cubs, four very different siblings.
