According to the book of Deidre's Secret, “When Deidre Roux has premonitions of danger, watch out! Faced with thwarting bank robbers and protecting others from the high school bully, she must reveal her secret to her new friend, Mark Cummings. Can she convince him that she truly sees a world of imminent danger headed their way before it's too late?

Humor, suspense, and conflict rule the day as Deidre's crazy aunt tries to do a true crime story on Mark's uncle. Deidre attempts to keep her aunt out of it before she gets mixed up in the much darker business of robberies and murder-her own, if she's not careful.”

According to the book description Deadly Liaisons, “He resisted the dark huntress…now he’ll use all his powers to make her his own. Tezra Campbell treads a dangerous line between her job as a telepathic investigator for the Hunter Council and her alternate life as a renegade. Beneath her cool, professional exterior lies a dark obsession to find the rogue vampire who murdered her parents ten years ago and left her sister a traumatized shell. An obsession that drives her to use herself as bait. Daemon, former bastard prince of Scotland and now head of the American vampire clans, sees Tezra as a danger to herself and to his people. Especially if the killer vampire takes her bait. Concerned his own brother might be accused of the crime, Daemon takes Tezra into custody, intending to keep her out of the way so he can find the killer himself.

Things don’t work out the way either planned. The more she fights him with her telepathic powers, the more she stirs up his sexual bloodlust—the kind only a mate can cool. And Tezra begins to wonder…is her desire for him real, or just a way to use Daemon to find the murderer? It’s a deadly game they both aim to win—even while they try to keep their hearts intact.”

According to the book of Relative Danger, “Murder, mayhem, and family secrets abound when some beneficiaries of an insurance magnate's last will and testament plot to get their money early. During a week of togetherness orchestrated by her not-quite-departed uncle's will, headstrong heiress McKenna Sutherland has to team up with resort manager Thomas Hampton, the man who stole her heart five years ago, or she'll lose her inheritance--to him! McKenna and Thomas need to uncover the villain among a cast of colorful characters who have joined them for the week, each of whom has a stake in the ultimate outcome--Uncle Sheldon's money, and loads of it. Thomas's job is to keep Sheldon's faked death a secret, while he makes sure McKenna isn't next on the killer's hit list. With everything around them a lie, can Thomas regain McKenna's love and trust before it's too late? Find out in this twisting Agatha Christie-like tale of suspense!”

 

According to the book description of Winning the Highlander's Heart, “Countess Anice vows to flee the amorous advances of King Henry I, and return to her home in the Highlands, where she hopes to find a laird to wed. Highlander Laird Malcolm MacNeill, seeking an English bride, becomes entangled with the Scottish lass while trying to find out why her staff has vanished.”

 

According to the book description of The Vampire...in My Dreams, “Love bites when a seventeen-year-old vampire and witch tangle. Marissa Lakeland faces her worst nightmare one dark and misty night when she chases a gorgeous hunk of a guy to prove he's a vampire. So why does the thought of tall, dark and vampiric appeal to Marissa, when there's no way a vampire can compel a witch to do his bidding? At least that's what she's read in vampire lore. But lore can be mistaken. Fledgling vampire Dominic Vorchowski knows Marissa's the only one who can save him. Only why does she have to be a witch? Fate has thrown him together with the bewitching Marissa and if he gains her trust, he'll have his life back again. Except for that whole eternal thirst for blood thing. And the fangs. Not to mention the aversion to intense sunlight. In any event, he's set his sights on one girl who's totally off the menu. The centuries-old vamp Lynetta wants Dominic to replace the lover she lost, and no teenaged witch is going to take her guy away. Dominic and Marissa must stop the vampiress from winning the battle of the night but time is running out.”

Harriet Klausner said of To Tempt the Wolf, “Wildlife photographer Tessa Anderson is taking pictures of an out of control California wildfire when the wolf rushes her; she escapes and thinks she best go back to Oregon for her brother's murder trial. At the same time she drives by, twin sibling grey lupus garous Hunter and Meara Greymere leave the inferno to move to the cabin on the Oregon coast left them by their uncle who retired to the Everglades.

Soon afterward in Oregon, Tessa comes by, but Meara tells her to leave. Tess insists she was to have dinner with Uncle Basil as he told her to call him, but Meara remains unfriendly until Tess sarcastically says nice meeting you and goes, but makes it clear she will insure Uncle Basil is okay. Afterward Meara demands her brother find her a mate or she will join the others. While Hunter worries about his no longer compliant sister, he also finds himself wanting the human photographer. However as his pack deserts him, several beings attack Hunter. Wounded, he swims to the beach near Tess' home. Tess helps him and soon she is a target of his enemies and of his wanting her.

The third werewolf romance (see DESTINY OF THE WOLF and HEART OF THE WOLF) is an enjoyable action-packed thriller from the fiery onset to the mystery of what is going on in Coastal Oregon. Fans of the series will enjoy the tale of the Gray Pack forced to relocate near a Red Pack (in Portland) as werewolves are territorial. Tessa is an intrepid human female who is not afraid of the big bad wolf while Hunter has found his soul mate ironically as he has tried for almost two centuries to find Meara's alpha mate. Terry Spear provides an engaging paranormal romantic suspense as gold is the greedy lowest common denominator and love the highest common denominator.”

 

According to the book description of To Tempt the Wolf, “in this third in the series, wildlife photographer Tessa Anderson must prove her brother innocent of murder charges. But when she discovers a gorgeous naked man barely alive on her beach, she's got a new world of troubles to deal with, not least of which is how he affects her with just a look, a touch, or a whispered word. Hunter Greymore is a lupus garou, a grey werewolf. Hoping to keep a low profile at Tessa's cabin on the coast, he's drawn into her life—and into her bed. His animal instincts war with his human half, but in the end, the only thing he can do about this fascinating, adorable woman is to leave her forever —unless she becomes one of them.”

According to the book description of Legend of the White Wolf, “In this fourth in Spear's series, Private Eye Cameron MacPherson and Faith O'Mallery are both on quests that lead them into the world of magical wolves. Cameron arrives in the Canadian Arctic to search for his partners in his P.I. business who are late returning from a hunting trip. Faith is there to discover what her father had seen in the same area years earlier that had made him lose touch with reality—man-wolves, he called them. The two tumble into an icy world of enemies bent on destroying the lupus garou kind. As they turn into lupus garou themselves, and bond with the pack that only they can rescue from destruction, Cameron and Faith find their soul mates in each other.”

 

Publisher’s Weekly said of Heart of the Wolf, “Red werewolf Bella flees her adoptive pack of gray werewolves when the alpha male Volan tries forcibly to claim her as his mate. Her real love, beta male Devlyn, has been out of her life for years, but comes after her when she finds herself accidentally captured by humans. Bella becomes convinced that Devlyn only wants to return her to Volan, but soon realizes that Devlyn loves her as much as she loves him, and is willing to fight Volan to the death to claim her. That problem pales, however, as a pack of red werewolves takes to killing human females in a crazed quest to claim Bella for their own. Bella and Devlyn must defeat the rogue wolves before Devlyn's final confrontation with Volan. The vulpine couple's chemistry crackles off the page, but the real strength of the book lies in Spear's depiction of pack power dynamics, as well as in the details of human-wolf interaction. His wolf world feels at once palpable and even plausible.”

 

Booklist said of Heart of the Wolf, “Seven hundred years ago, Jasmine Tremaine and 12 of her schoolmates were banished to the mortal realm for breaking the rules of the Witches High Council, and Jazz has been causing trouble ever since. Life as a curse breaker and limousine driver for the rich and preternatural isn’t so bad. The past, though, has a nasty way of catching up with you, even when you’ve lived for centuries. Her on-again, off-again sexy vampire beau, Nick, has come to town looking for clues to the disappearances of vampires in the area, and one name keeps popping up: Clive Reeves. Her worst nightmare thought long dead. This time, Nick and Jazz will have to make sure Clive stays that way. Wisdom, no stranger to romance fans, delivers a striking opening salvo in her new paranormal series. Although Jazz often comes across as the stereotypical smart-mouthed, gothic-chic heroine, she and the rest of the gang make for a zany, hot read.”

One reader of Destiny of the Wolf said, “I loved this book! It's one of the absolute best shapeshifter romances I've read in a long time. Terry Spear's take on the werewolf world is incredibly unique and interesting. I love the way she links the behavior and pack dynamics of her lupus garou to that of real wolves in the wild. It's obvious she does a lot of in-depth research. I fell in love with her characters. Lelandi is wonderful and likable. She's tough and goes after what she wants with determination. Darien is the definition of hot, sexy and alpha, plus he has a heart of gold. He's protective of Lelandi and his pack. This is a fast-paced, entertaining read with twists and turns I would've never expected. I highly recommend Destiny of the Wolf!”
