Dreaming of the Wolf
Alicia Greiston is a no-nonsense bounty hunter determined to bring a ring of mobsters to justice. Her dogged pursuit of the crime family has forced her to avoid relationships— any man would only become a target for retribution. Luckily, Jake Silver is more than a man, and his instincts are telling him to stop at nothing to protect her.
AN ANIMAL PASSION...
However, the mob isn't entirely human either, and soon Alicia must flee for her life. When Alicia and Jake's passion begins to spill over into their dreams, Jake learns he will have to do more than defend her— he'll have to show his mate the way of the wolf.

My Review: (Melissa)
What an amazing and exciting read this was. I could not stop reading this eighth installment of Terry Spear's Werewolf series. The plot and the pace flowed so well. The action and suspenseful romance kept me turning pages. The characters were like old friends. Very realistic and likeable. You can easily find yourself wrapped up in them. I would completely recommend this book to any readers looking for a great read.
My Rating: 5 Stars.
Moon Glitter's Reveiw:
First of all I just have to say that this is my first Terry Spears book. I know, it's a bit strange that I would start with book #8 in a series. I am happy to say that these books do NOT need to be read in order :) They are great stand alone books!
Dreaming of the Wolf was a fantastic read!! Alicia Greiston is a bounty hunter who wants to make sure justice is served and her mothers murderers are put behind bars for good! While she realizes that she is dealing with members of the mob, she just doesn't realize just how far in over her head she is!
Jake Silver is a true alpha male werewolf! He has never been interested in finding himself tied down to a mate....until he spots Alicia. But she's a human and he realizes that the cards are stacked against him. Right away she intrigues him. He feels the need to know her business. He wants to protect her and keep her close.
The plot moved along at a great pace. I found myself up late at night and into the early morning hours devouring this book! The characters are interesting and easy to relate to. The romance is amazing and sensual. If you love werewolves, you are sure to love Dreaming of the Wolf! I will be reading more of Terry Spears books!! I highly recommend them!!

Weres and Vamps….What’s Not to Love? By Terry Spear
Thanks to Werevampsromance for having me here today. I have to say that I fell in love with Dracula when I was a teen and saw him biting the heroine’s neck at Brevard Community College in Florida, and I wanted to join him on the stage, shove the damsel under his spell out of the way and offer my neck and say, “Bite me, bite ME!”
And that was it. I was in love with an otherworldly creature. The only problem was that I didn’t want to see him die. I’m a happily-ever-after kind of person. I felt the same thing for the poor werewolf who was a decent human being and had this affliction where he’d turn into a crazed beast during the full moon.
Nope. Couldn’t have that either. So when I began writing about vampires and werewolves in their own worlds, I wanted hot and sexy paranormal guys…not cold and dead, not furry, mindless beasts. Hot and sexy. And as realistic as possible.
I have a soft spot for the underdog and both vampires and werewolves have being getting the short end of the stick for centuries. Think about it. Some humans are evil to the core. Others have hearts of gold.
And that’s how I view humans, and weres, and vamps. On the other hand, we all have our faults, even the worst of us, or the best of us. Although my dad always said he was perfect. :)
So how can werewolves be the good guys? They’re loving, sexy, loyal, family-oriented, protective, and mate for life, what more can you ask for?
And vampires? They’re mesmerizing, sexy, and when they find the one for them, that’s it, and yes, protective, absolutely, charismatic, and loving.
So what’s the difference? Both bite. Of course vampires are less furry and I see them as being more cultured—theater-goers, rather than the woodsy type. But if you’re having trouble with anyone, either a werewolf or a vampire will deal with it, easily. And that will be the end of your troubles. And if they can’t take care of your problem, they’ll call on their own kind to help you out in a fix.
Did I mention they’re protective?
Yep. Everyone should have a favorite werewolf for a companion. Or a vampire. Or…both, depending on your mood.
Not that either would want to share you. So you might just have to choose. And not change your mind later either. It’s forever in their world. And forever is a very long time.
Neither vampires or werewolves should really take a human for a mate. It means that the human has to go through an awful lot of changes. Not just physically, but mentally also. And if the human has family, that’s another sticking point. But when a werewolf or vampire finds the love of their life…that’s a different story.
Jake Silver in Dreaming of the Wolf, Book 8, from the Silver wolf pack of Silver Town, Colorado, has found such a woman. He fights against his natural urges when he knows he can’t have her. Not permanently for a mate. And she’s fighting wanting him after two bad marriages and a little problem with dealing with the Mob.
But if werewolves and vampires weren’t enough, there’s a new shifter series on the horizon. Jaguars!
They’re like the others—sexy, have a very big bite, protective, but as a jaguar, their natural instinct is to mate with several females. So the human half has to put on the stops to ensure a happily ever after!
Hoping you all are enjoying the holidays and they’re not too hectic. I just sent off the last teddy bear order of the season…and it’s back to wolves for me…
Would you like Jake under your tree for Christmas? If so, what would you expect of him??
