Dreaming of the Wolf

from Mia Marlowe...
Dreams feature prominently in SINS OF THE HIGHLANDER. It even  starts with a dream--one from which our hero, Rob MacLaren doesn't want to wake. Once he returns to the world of light, he has to face a life without the woman of his dreams, his dead wife Fiona.

But I don't think that's the sort of dream my next guest means when she wrote Dreaming of the Wolf. Please welcome Terry Spear and her furry friends!

Terry Spear: Having wolves (werewolves, that is) in your life in the New Year is a plus. Why?

They’re protective, loyal, loving, take care of each pack member’s cubs as if they were their own, sexy, hot, hunky, well, what more can you ask for in the New Year? I admit they’re wolf shifters, which can get a little hairy at times when they’re trying to keep their identity secret. And they do seem to get into more than their share of trouble. But if you’re going to get into a pickle of a mess, being with a wolf of a guy, and his pack, evens up the odds in your favor. Even if the electricity’s on the blink during a blizzard, you’ll have no worry about keeping warm, not with a wolfish kind of guy there to help out. Did I mention how playful they are? Swimming in the Grand Cayman Islands, or a chilly lake in Oregon, playing tag, you name it, either solo or playing with the pack is part of being in a wolf pack. But it doesn’t stop there! A new jaguar shifter series, starting with Savage Hunger, will be released in the fall. Jaguars are just as curious and playful as wolves, but of course they’ll be a lot different too.

So if you like big kitty cats that are just as protective as their wolf counterparts, you might want to check them out also! Will there be cat and dog fights? Hmm. I have to say for now, neither believe the other exist—they’re merely fantasy.

Hope you all have a super wonderful New Years! I’ll be at Outback Steakhouse, pretending to be in the wilds of Australia, enjoying a wolf/jaguar-loving steak and of course spicy wings! Happy New Years! Oh, and would YOU like a wolf/jaguar (not the car, lol) for the New Years?

    Thanks, Barbara! I'm so glad you're enjoying the wolves. Hopefully you'll like a bit cat or two also!!!

    Thanks, Betty! Definitely, alpha all the way!

    Hi, Aretha! Thanks! I just listened to Wolfsbane on audio, a YA by Cremer. I loved the story, realized it was the 2nd in the series, and now need to go back and read the first. :)

    Mia, I think I look afraid of the dog, but it actually was my purse's fault. It kept wanting to swing at the dog, and I was trying to keep it from doing so. LOL! I had fun seeing all the wolves and wolf dogs there. My daughter warned me NOT to bring home a wolf pup. LOL

  11. My vampires are just as hot blooded, but vampires do have a reputation for drawing blood. :) It was a long day at work, what can I say?

    Refhater, thanks! I agree the cover is awesome. A SEAL in Wolf's Clothing is really hot too. :) But then a wolfish SEAL would be.

    You're welcome, May!

  12. I think the first books I read published by Sourcebooks were Terry's werewolf stories...could not read them fast already have all of them so no need to enter me in the contest!

  13. There's something totally irresistible about shapeshifters; it's all about animal attraction!

  14. Thanks so much, Maria! I'm delighted you are enjoying them!!! More to come!!

    Lol, love it, Linda! Yes, animal attraction is correct!!! Yum!

  15. Love wolves, but soooo looking forward to your jaguars! Fall? No sooner????

  16. mm I would have to say that I have loved your series over the years and I cannot get enough.
    Thank you for creating this fabulous set of male characters in your books.

  17. I have a weakness for shifter stories. Though I have loved werewolf stories for years, I have to admit that I enjoy reading about other shifters, too. Does that make me fickle?

  18. Cat, yes! I'm hoping they're sticking to the Sept schedule at least! They moved the other Highland wolf book back to Feb 2012 although it's written and ready to go. :( But it's coming! Thanks so much for loving them before you even get to enjoy them. Yum. :)

    Teril, thanks so much! I hope you love SEALs as much as you do wolves, even though he's truly a wolf too! And jaguars too!

    Thanks, Lil! Nah, not fickle! Just more loving! :)

  19. Hi Terry, I am looking forward to reading about jaguars, instead of wolves for a nice change. I love big cat shifters. Like the Christine Feehan Leopard series.

  20. Thanks, Aurian! I haven't read her books! I read one of the jaguar books of hers--lots of vampires in the story! Mine will be strictly jaguars, just like with my wolf stories. As realistic as possible! :)

  21. Hi Terry, I think that must have been one of her Carpathian books, where they discovered the Jaguar women (who are compatible to the Carpathian males). The Leopards are something different, in the rainforest. But I have the feeling the series can cross over.

  22. to admit that the first book that make me love wolf will be twilight and continue love reading about wolf ;)

  23. It sounds great. Cant wait to read.

  24. I love werewolve books. The cover to Dreaming of the Wolf is great.

  25. YES, YES, To all of the above questions. I love them 4 legged Howling or Spotted. And a occasional bite in the night would be allright.

  26. Terry, I'm such a stalker - I can't help myself, lol. I have all of your books on my wishlist, and I WILL eventually get them ;-)

    I love you book covers so much, and all of the research you put into your books is just amazing!

    Thank you for yet another wonderful giveaway opportunity!

    Happy New Year!

    Gena Robertson

  27. Oh, I would love one, definitely! Who wouldn't?? :-)
