Fascinating aspects of real-life wolf behavior based on extensive research on how wolves live in the wild make Terry Spear’s werewolf paranormal series stand out and attract a growing audience. The fifth in the series features heroine Cassie Roux, a biologist who has studied wolves for years, trying to prove to the world they’re not evil predators. A red lupus garou (werewolf), who lost her pack and was raised by real wolves, she has dedicated her life to their preservation. Leidolf Wildhaven is a red lupus garou pack leader who has more troubles than he ever thought possible, what with running a pack, a ranch, and other businesses. When Cassie—a rare red female— is spotted in his territory, Leidolf figures he’s found the answer to his pack’s threatened extinction. Only the headstrong woman has other priorities…
This is the next book in Terry Spear’s WEREWOLF SERIES, and while I’d say you should read the other books, mainly because they are all outstanding stories, you can read SEDUCED BY THE WOLF as a stand alone novel. There are mentions of previous characters and storylines but they don’t make SEDUCED BY THE WOLF hard to read. Ms. Spear’s blends realistic settings and characters effortlessly with paranormal touches, the werwolf, in such a way that you can only believe these tales to be true. There is a perfect blend of heat, love, romance, suspense, tension, family, and passion to leave all readers happily sighing as the final page turns. I will say I hated to see this book end and I can’t wait for the next story, WOLF FEVER, coming December 2010 from Sourcebooks! I highly recommend SEDUCED BY THE WOLF to everyone, especially if you love paranormal romance, suspense, passion, and hot heroes!

Woohoo, Wendy, thanks for the lovely review!!!!
Cecile, I hope Seduced is at the top of your TBR pile! LOL If you need autographed book plates and book marks, just send me a SASE. 🙂
HHHMMM, Looking at the cover the mountain reminds me of Mount Shasta back home in No. Calif????? Sorry I almost forgot to mention that I’m pleased to know you do your background work and just don’t try to fake your way though a story.

Ohmigosh, Zina, I used to live in Sacramento and we used to boat at Shasta Lake! I hadn’t thought of that in years! 🙂 But when I pulled up a picture of Mt Shasta, you’re right. It does look like the cover! 🙂 Although Mt Hood and even Mt Rainier do too! I miss being able to see mountains like them and forests too!
You’re right , Rainier looks like it too. I grew up in Marysville, So. Lake Tahoe and Redding , Ca. We had friends that lived in Sac. and we used to go tubing down the Sac. river and we always spent alot of time on the lak,/camping/ boating in the summers, both Shasta and Whiskeytown. How cool we are from the same area.
I forgot to say I have lived on the East coast for over 20 years now and RI is flat no mountains. I can see both Mount Shasta and Lassen from my parents front yard. I miss it too along with trips to the Redwoods.

Oh, yeah, Lake Tahoe too!! At one of the lakes, our friends stayed in a tent on an island? while we stayed on the boat. Deer ran through their tent, knocking it down and we heard screams coming from the direction of the land. I was SOOO glad we were sleeping on a boat. LOL 🙂 We didn’t know what had gotten them in the dark of night!!
I LOVED the Redwoods too. There is nothing in the world like them!
When we moved to Florida, I felt like you—flat land, no mountains. 🙂 Your parents are lucky! 🙂
I’m trying to remember what islands are on the lake I can only think of Emrald Bay but I don’t know if it has an island, there is the Vikingsholm that an eccentric lady built and she had a tower built out on a little island where she liked to take her guests for tea but it’s private owned. Did you go to the Ponderosa? I so wanted to go there as a kid, we drove past a few times but my dad said it was a tourist trap. We went to Virginia city a few times and watched the camel races once. My uncle lived on the opisite side of the lake in Truckee and driving over the Donner pass can be scary if you go to fast but the view is so awesome if there are sailboats out on Donner lake.

I’m not sure where it was. My mother died last year or she’d know. I do have her diaries. Not sure if she has them that far back, and I don’t know what year it would have been. No, we didn’t got to the Ponderosa. But we loved Knot’s Berry Farm. Camel races? Wow, how fun. We went to a beach that we called moon rock. The boulders were filled with holes from the slamming surf. It was so neat. 🙂 We were driving through the mountains one time to get to a remote lake where the only roads were logging trails, following our friends who had the tent, and my dad swore we were lost and would never make it out of their alive…He was pulling the boat. It might have been there. I remember one lake had a lot of logging timbers in it. Dad and the other dad stood on them and tried to roll the other off. They had both retired from the AF and had been AF buddies. 🙂 I remember that one of the places had warning signs about abandoned gold mines, not to go in. And cows roamed around there too. 🙂
Camel races are very scary if you ask me. The day we went I was about 12-13 and you had to sign a waiver that you wouldn’t sue if you fell off or got hurt. The raced 3 at a time and this one guys camel didn’t want to move when they started the race so one of the handlers started smacking the camel on the rump to get it to go. Well after a few light smacks the handler gave it a few hard smacks and just when you thought the guy was going to give up the camel bolted and started running crazily down the road and you could hear the guy riding screaming and then everyone was running after the camel to stop it, it was funny and scary.
