A SEAL Wolf Christmas and an Autographed Giveaway!

Bjoronolf is so hot, he can wear sunglasses at night and still look cool. Don't you agree?

If anyone is noticing anything other than his abs, his sunglasses are reflecting A SEAL Wolf Christmas. Most everyone I ask says, "What sunglasses?" Or, "I love mirrored sunglasses."

No, they weren't that way. He wasn't that cool. Not until I turned those plain old sunglasses into something much hotter. Why am I even mentioning them when you're happily looking at his abs? It took me hours to figure out how to create the look of mirrored glasses. Do I remember how to do it again? Nope. Do you care? Nope. LOL

Lesson learned! Don't worry about anything the guy is wearing as long as he has GREAT looking abs. :)

 When Deb asked if I wanted to write a A SEAL Wolf Christmas, I was excited. I'd never written a Christmas story before, read lots of romantic suspenses set at Christmastime, and only one that was not, and I took off writing it. I couldn't wait for Bjornolf and Anna to get together again! And see them spar. I couldn't stop writing until I was finished. I love when that happens. But when I turned it in, someone said to me, "Did you know that Jaguar Fever is first?"

Panic. I was working full time still. And I had the Anaheim conference to go to. I wrote 40,000 words of Jaguar Fever before I went to conference and it didn't feel right. So when I got home from conference, I only had two more weeks left before I retired early, and I threw out the whole mss and wrote like the devil was after me. The deadline devil, yes. This time the story worked, and I was having a blast.

Then I wrote 2? 3? more books, and now I'm on A Highland Wolf Christmas, which got me to thinking, I have to have more Christmas books because they're so much fun to write! And I had the perfect idea!!!! A SILVER WOLF CHRISTMAS!  Since the Silver wolf pack in Colorado are affectionately called the Silver brothers and there's more trouble coming to town in Silence of the Wolf, well, it seems just perfectly appropriate. Don't you think? They will have the Christmas celebration that will outdo all others--and big trouble too.

I asked on FB if anyone would like to see A Silver Wolf Christmas and had an overwhelming--yes!!!! But then, everyone was asking, what about a jaguar Christmas? I LOVE my fans. :) So yes, I will have to propose that for the following year. That should book me up for Christmases for a while.

Even though Bjornolf and Anna are not big on Christmas, though that does change, I do love Christmas. I love to listen to Celtic Christmas music, and harp music and lots more. I love seeing the lights and decorating everything and being with family for the holidays. I love how the cold kills the bugs.

Okay, so that doesn't sound very Christmas-y, but I've got the AC on because of the 91 degree temps--isn't it like October already?--trying to write about a Highland Wolf Christmas and it's hot out! And buggy.

So I'm already for Christmas and cooler weather.

Those hot SEALs are back with Terry Spear's A SEAL Wolf Christmas. First, they're running around in the jaguars' territory in the hot Amazon jungle, but once they've done their SEAL kind of mission, Bjornolf and Anna have another mystery to solve--A Christmas tree farm murder mystery. They don't have to deal with babies--not yet--but wolf teens, yes! And that can mean really big trouble as Silver Bells are ringing and the aroma of wassail and cinnamon is scenting the air during this special Christmas season.

Can an Alpha Wolf Who's Met His Match...

Navy SEAL Bjornolf Jorgenson has had tough missions before, but going undercover with feisty gray wolf Anna Johnson could top the list. She drives him crazy—in more ways than one. Now he has to investigate a murder, supervise a wild teenage wolf—and handle Christmas with Anna.

Survive the Holidays with Her?

For Anna, the only thing worse than staging the perfect family Christmas is having to do it with Bjornolf posing as her husband. Anna is a serious undercover operative who isn't afraid of a fight, even with a hunky SEAL shifter. With a killer on the loose, Anna just wants to focus on their mission, but the one thing she can't fight is her sizzling chemistry with Bjornolf.

So get comfy, it's time to read some sexy Christmas stories and dream of sugar plum heroes holding us tight. Are you ready?

Merry Christmas!!! A little early. Who says we can't have our dessert before the meal?

Okay, I know it's way too early, but anyone got an idea for a Christmas-y title for a jaguar shifter Christmas??

One lucky commenter will get an autographed copy of any book (except for Savage Hunger or Destiny of the Wolf, ran out) that you would like.

What is your favorite holiday treat for the holidays? And if you're not thinking as far as Christmas, do you have nifty Halloween treats to share? Pictured below is one of the wizard bears I make!

Here's mine: Spidery Deviled Eggs. Easy! Just make your favorite deviled eggs and top with sliced black olives. Yum. Another is hot dogs wrapped in crescent rolls to make mummy dogs!

I know it's not Christmas, but it's my only chance to sneak in a fun treat for Halloween! :)

Speaking of things going bump in the night, it's getting late and something crawls up my leg. Natural reaction: brush it off and then look to see what it was. Cricket maybe? Been finding a bunch of them in the house--dead. Good.

But I'm thinking one of the little lizards that I have inside and outside the house. Texas. What can you expect? It's getting really late and need to go to bed. So shut things down and start walking to the bedroom and feel something rough between the sole of my foot and my flipflop. I kick it off and off runs a scorpion. Now deceased. I know, Carolyn, you can relate. I was stung so many times in Oklahoma, in bed even, I had to remove the bed skirt off the bed.

I can't believe he crawled up my leg, I brushed him off AND he somehow got between my foot and my flipflop as I was walking and I DIDN'T get stung. When I lived in Oklahoma, I was stung a number of times, picking up a shovel off the grass that I had hold of seconds earlier, stung 3 times in bed, and a number of other times. Had to wear shoes at all times, check inside shoes, never have clothes lying on the floor, and even my son, who put on his robe when he was little, was stung when he pulled his robe from a hanger. They would cling to the ceiling, be hiding behind pictures, blended in with the carpet. HATE those things.
Where is a hunky SEAL wolf hero when I need one???


I have audiobook review copies of the following: The Accidental Highland Hero, Highland Rake, Taming the Wild Highland, Bound by Danger, The Dark Fae (teen), Kiss of the Vampire (teen), The Deadly Fae (teen). The caveat is that you haven't received a free book before through audible. But if you haven't and you'd like one, it's yours! This is for anybody and everyone. :)

Happy Halloween and Christmas, early~!

  8. Its the only time it comes out in stores and I buy a few packages to last to last for rest of the Holidays

  9. Same with me with the Haviland thin mints. Never can get enough of them! And last year, they didn't have them in Waco. Now that is NOT right! I had to get them in Nebraska when I visited my son for Thanksgiving and my daughter brought me some from Houston. :) This is a totally serious business.

  10. I know how that is, its even more of a pain when you try to go through the manufacturers and its like pulling teeth with them. They have all their products in storage and they cant let go one single box. Its not like they wont get the money out of the product, but I guess most business are like that now a days.

  11. Anthing pumpkin that I can eat! AND, of course, anything with dark chocolate...

  12. Pumpkins and dark chocolate! Yes! Well, not together. :)

  13. I love making and eating Gingerbread houses! And also making the perfect hot chocolate with whipped cream, marshmallows, chocolate chips, and a candy cane!

  14. I make 26 to 30 pounds of fudge at the holidays and my favorite is my dark orange chocolate.

  15. I am getting excited for Christmas now! Plus, I'm at Starbucks and it's really cold so it feels like Christmas! Congrats on the release. N more scorpion photos, please.

  16. Hey, Shana, Yeah, the weather got cold here for the mornings, and evenings, which is why the scorpions decided to come inside. Argh. :) I love the cooler weather and I'm ready for Christmas!!!

  17. Yes, ma'am, I can relate...Congratulations on the new release! And I agree. Christmas books are so much fun to write...working on the 2014 debut Burnt Boot series right now and the first one out of the chute is a Christmas book! What fun! My favorite Christmas treat is Martha Washington candy and I'm planning to make some this year...if I meet my deadlines!

  18. Carolyn, You'll get them done with plenty of time to make those special treats!!!!

  19. My favorite treat for Christmas is coconut snowmen. Made with cupcakes, each snowman is made out of two with M&M's as the button, eyes and mouth. peppermint sticks as the arms. Or you can make one Snowman cake with with 2 layers of cake side by side. I wonder if I can make them into ghosts for Halloween, ummm. Guess I'll try that this year. Thanks for sharing the spidered eggs. I am looking forward to reading A Seal Wolf Christmas. evamillien at gmail dot com

  20. That's a cute idea, Eva! The snowman cupcakes. And I could see they could make nifty ghosts!

  21. chocolate chip cookies

  22. Mine is the Peppermint Bark that my daughter and grandaughter every Christmas,it is made with Almond bark and Candy Canes. Yum.!!

  23. Ooooh, yeah, that would be good!!! *sigh* All these treats sound so good. I picked up peppermint ice cream bars surrounded by chocolate, only offered at Christmas. Yum.

  24. Love chocolate chip cookies! My favorite for making myself, double the chocolate chips!

  25. You have some of the best covers!!! We have a pumpkin carving party every year which I always look forward to. Any and all treats are welcome lol. And it is time to start thinking about my Christmas reading!

  26. Yes, Catslady! When I was working full time, it was hard for me to keep up with writing, promoting, and working, AND Christmas. I'm hoping I can take some time and do some fun stuff this year. :) I love pumpkin carving. Ours just tend to disintegrate into zombie pumpkins before their time, it's so hot here often. :( Really sad. :)

  27. My favorite Christmas treat is my grandmother's white chocolate buckeyes! And my dad makes the best snickerdoodles too! This Christmas will be the first time I won't make it home, but I've already been promised care packages!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  28. My favorite holiday treat is dark chocolate fudge.

  29. My sisters, friends and I always have a big cookie exchange. We each try to top the other for best cookie and whoever wins gets a gift basket of wine, vodka and chocolates. It's a blast and I end up with tons of yummy cookies and alcohol sometimes. :)

  30. Absolutely anything with pumpkin. Or peppermint. I guess I like the "p" treats. :-D

  31. Becca, you're the second one who has mentioned buckeyes. I'd never heard of them. Must look them up. Snickerdoodle sounds good!

    JMC, LOVE fudge. :)

    Steph, that sounds like fun!! :)

    Aquarian Dancer, I didn't think I'd be into peppermint that much, but when I picked up peppermint ice cream for my daughter's visit and she never got around to eating any of it, I finally put chocolate syrup on top (as you might have noticed, chocolate is my thing) and it was great! Then I found chocolate covered peppermint ice cream bars, Yum.

  32. I'm personally not a fan of Halloween so I'm skipping straight to Christmas :) My favorite treat has to be shortbread cookies. I can't get enough. And having different cookie cutters amuses me to no end. If you can make a play and then clean it up by eating them, all the better! :)

  33. LOL, I love that, Ada! :) I used cookie cutters when my kids were little. but my favorite cookie to make is chocolate chip, so I just added double the chips and we were all happy!

  34. My favorite treats for Christmas have to be candy canes. I like trying all the different flavors they come up with!

    Congrats on your new release, Terry!

  35. Anita, candy canes is such a part of Christmas and I didn't even think of that! Thanks about the new release! I loved writing about Christmas. :)

  36. I love peanut butter fudge and buckeyes at holiday time.

  37. With all this talk about buckeyes, I might just make them again this year for hubby and I. My hubby loves them but they can be time consuming to make.

  38. Sheryl and Lenna, sounds great!

    Eva, you're the winner! :)
