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.


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.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Spear continues her werewolf series (Heart of the Wolf, etc.) with this run-of-the-mill paranormal romance. Werewolf Jake Silver is dropping off some of his photographs in a Colorado art gallery when he spots Alicia Greiston taking pictures of a car’s license plate. Intrigued, he follows her into a restaurant where a dangerous-looking man confronts her. Jake comes to Alicia’s rescue, and she explains that she’s a bounty hunter tracking the mobsters who murdered her mother. Jake and Alicia can’t resist their mutual attraction, and Jake vows to do whatever it takes to protect Alicia from the men who want her dead. Quick pacing propels the story along, but too many unrelated elements clutter the plot. (Dec.)

    This book has everything!!!!

    ¿She¿s good at surviving, I¿ll give her that.¿- A quote from the book, that I couldn¿t have said better myself. I¿m an in love with her spirit, how many other girls can go around chasing bad guys, getting shot at, kidnapped, and turned into a wolf, while simultaneously falling in love? Not many. Not to mention she might be pregnant? Jake is a true hero, he is protective, and while having the traditional wolf qualities, he also recognizes his mate¿s need for independence, which makes them a complete power couple. They¿re invincible, and I am in awe. My favorite part is after she's lied to the detectives about how many murders she seen, or guys she's shot, they've left, and she turns to her friends, and says: "I didn't witness any OTHER shootings or killings, I swear it!" I laughed so hard!

    I Devoured this book!! Highly recommend!!!

    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!! My rating: 5 stars! Reviewer for WereVampsRomance.

    I was thinking Tom would get his dream mate but NOT THIS STORY. I love this series and enjoy the suttle thread that ties them all together. I know Tom will get his story soon *hint hint*.

    Oh My! Terry Spear and her hot, sexy shifters strikes again! I

    Oh My! Terry Spear and her hot, sexy shifters strikes again! I was completely enthralled throughout this whole book! Yes, I said "enthralled" not just interested, or intrigued, but completely and hopelessly enthralled.

    Jake Silver is one of the Silvertown Werewolf pack's sub-alphas. For those who aren't familiar with Terry Spear's series. . . Jake is a triplet. His "older" brother is pack Alpha, and he and his other brother are sub-alphas. Sort of like co-leaders to the Alpha. But don't worry ladies. . . Jake is all male, all wolf and all Alpha to the max.

    Alicia is a stubborn, determined woman out to get the men who murdered her mother. It doesn't matter to her that they are the Mob, or Werewolves. . . she just wants to see justice done. Unfortunately, she tends to get in over her head. Thankfully there is a sexy werewolf nearby who can only think of protecting her. . . in and out of bed! Yummy!

    Jake and Alicia's story is steamy, dangerous, intriguing and so much more. I loved this deviation from the "usual" wolf meets girl, wolf wants girl, wolf and girl mate. . . scenario. Jake wants Alicia but has a huge problem. She's human. Jake refuses to turn a human, though he can't get her out of his mind! Then. . . well, sorry, won't tell you more or that would spoil the story. I'll just say there are some dramatic portions of this story that actually had me wondering what REALLY happened. It definitely kept my interest and now I MUST read more! I need MORE of Terry Spears werewolves . . .

    Thankfully I do have a few more books from this series to re-read, but now I'm off to find the rest of the series to continue my adventures. I HIGHLY recommend Terry Spear's books! * I received a free copy of this book from the author for this review. All Reviews are my personal opinion*

    A good werewolf novel with an okay romance.

    Jake Silver is a nature photographer who just recently started displaying his works in local galleries, he is also a werewolf. Visiting the town of Breakenridge to drop off some of his work, Jake sees a beautiful woman sneaking around outside and decides to follow her. Learning that Alicia Greiston is a bounty hunter seeking vengeance on a group of mobsters for the death of her mother brings out all of Jake’s protective instincts even though Alicia is only human. Trying to keep her safe proves to be quite the challenge for Jake since Alicia is adamant in taking down the mobsters by herself and keeping Jake out of harm's way. But with danger comes an intense passion that can’t be denied and when circumstances change Alicia might just get the wolf, and the future, she’s been dreaming of.

    Dreaming of the Wolf is book 8 in the Heart of the Wolf series, but don’t let that scare you off because it is set up perfectly as a stand-alone. This is actually my first read from author Terry Spear, though I’ve had her on my TBR list for a while now. Dreaming of the Wolf was a good story and I enjoyed the aspects of the Silver wolf pack but the actuality of it didn’t quite meet my expectations.

    The character of Jake himself was well-written, sexy and captivating. He had a deliciously sweet side and I really loved him and the whole silver pack that was featured. They intrigued me and made me interested in their own stories. The pack atmosphere was well detailed and vivid; you could tell that the author knew what she was talking about when it came to wolves. When it came to Jake’s relationship with Alicia however, I wasn’t quite feeling it. Being a werewolf, Jake couldn’t get involved with a human and Alicia was too set on her journey for justice to be side-tracked. Having a few failed marriages under her belt didn’t put Jake in any better of a light for her either. Jake was trying to find a way around their circumstances, considering his feelings for Alicia, but she was having none of it and her character just didn’t seem to fit. And when it came to their sex scenes I actually skipped over half of them. You're shocked, I know. LoL The reason being, they were redundant. It was the same scenario, same actions, same moves, each and every time. It was like these characters only knew one way to get it on and it never varied no matter how many times they did it. I was just unable to connect with the heroine or believe in their relationship which ended up dragging the story down for me. I think if there was a different heroine, a better fit maybe for the hero, I would of enjoyed the romance more.

    However, there was some action, a few nice twists, and the world-building was excellent. I would say Dreaming of the Wolf was still a good read despite my problems with it and I have seen many glowing reviews for it, but it just wasn't my glass of wine. Though this will not be the last novel I read by Terry Spear, I will definitely be trying out her other novels in the Heart of the Wolf series just for the werewolves alone!

    The Werewolf of your Dreams!!! A+++

    I received an ecopy of this book free of charge from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

    I have to admit that I haven't read any other books in the Heart of the Wolf series, but I've heard really good things about it, so when I saw this book listed on NetGalley I decided to give it a try. I can honestly say that I now see why everyone loves this series!! And the best part is that this book can definitely stand on its own! Even without knowing what happens in the previous books of the series, Terry Spear lets you know what's what without making you feel like you are being dumped information.

    From Goodreads: "Werewolf pack leader Jake Silver is an acclaimed photographer. He sees a beautiful woman at the art gallery where his photos are on display, and his intrigue turns into wolfish protectiveness. Alicia Greiston has never met anyone like Jake-he's sexy, alpha, and totally irresistible, and he calls to something primal in her soul."

    Jake Silver goes to drop of some photographs he took at an art gallery in Breckenridge, Colorado, and he's planning a quick in and out so he can get back to his home in Silver City, where his pack is located. But when he sees a very attractive woman surreptitiously taking photos of a car's license plate on the same street, he's curious (and interested) enough to follow her into a restaurant. It turns out she's a bounty hunter named Alicia Greiston and she's bound and determined to take down a couple of mob guys by herself, to keep a promise she made to herself when her mother was murdered by these same men. Jake, being the sexy, fierce, alpha werewolf that he is, decides to stay in town to protect her, even though they can have no future because she's a human and werewolves are not allowed to have more than passing sex with humans. Therein lies the problem and you will have to read the book to find out how it is resolved because I'm not giving it away!! No, I mean it - don't even ask!

    I thoroughly enjoyed my first foray into Terry Spear's writing! The sex scenes were hot, hot, HOT - but that wasn't all there was to the book by any means. The story was one that drew you in, and you really cared about all of the characters. I can tell you this for sure - I am definitely going to go back to the very beginning of this series and read the first seven books because if they are anywhere as good as this one was, I know I'm going to fall in love with Silver City and its very interesting citizens!

    In summary, I highly recommend this book for paranormal lovers and werewolf lovers alike!! :D

    Sexy Alpha Male who will Melt your Heart. =)

    First off let me just say, look at that beautiful, sexy cover for "Dreaming of the Wolf". I love it!!!! You know to not ever judge a book by it's cover, but this one, I have to say is one reason I adore this book. It seems every book's cover for the Heart of the Wolf Series gets better and better. I have to say also, is the model on the cover fits Jake's description very perfectly and I'm jealous now of Alicia getting Jake in the book. She's one lucky Gal. If you have never read the Heart of the Wolf Series, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! Terry Spear writes her wolf series, like they are actual wolves in the wild, not like the movie "The Wolfman." This is one main reason why I adore this series and I can't get enough of the Sexy Alpha Males she comes up with. Now in "Dreaming of the Wolf", we are going back to Silver Town to finally get Jake his Mate. I love Jake not only for his looks, but the Man is a Photographer. He loves taking photos of Wildflowers. I would love to meet a Man who adores taking photos of beautiful things like flowers. I love taking photos myself, and flowers have been my favorite thing to photography since I took of Photography in 2006. The minute I started reading about Jake, I fell head over heels for him. Jake is definitely a very over-protective Alpha Male too, which who wouldn't want this Man watching over them? He finds his perfect Mate while trying to put his photos in a Art Gallery. He comes across Alicia...well, he actually kind of stalks her. Although, I have to say again, she's one lucky gal to have such a sexy hunk stalk her. Jake doesn't realize he's about to meet Alicia who is in kind of bind with the Mob. She is a Bounty Hunter and she's trying to put her Mom's killers behind bars where they belong. She has no idea she's about to fall into the Supernatural world that she never thought could exist and she is also about to meet the One Man who will change her luck on Love and Marriage. Let's just say, that Alicia gets lucky even in the beginning of the book and I loved the Woods Scene. =) From beginning to end, I had a hard time putting down this book. I love how Terry Spear, always makes the story so interesting. This book took you into the world of Mobsters and what would happen if you threw in Werewolves in the mix. She also brings back old characters from previous books. I love getting a look at Lelandi's pregnancy more and having Darrien again. Yum!!! I also loved the ending the most. Who would thought, a Wedding would happen at Silver Town...but when I woman puts her mind into something, who can say No to Lovely Lelandi. "Dreaming of the Wolf" has become one of my FAVE books I've read in 2011 and I definitely look forward to the next book in the series coming out next year. The best part is I got a sneak peek of "A Seal in Wolf's Clothing" at the end of "Dreaming of the Wolf". I'm looking forward to reading about Meara and Finn Emerson. Thank you again, Terry Spear for my Alpha Male Fix again this year. I look forward to the next books in the series and again, you have a FAN for life!!! I recommend this to any reader out there that has an obsession with Sexy Alpha Males and Daring Heroines. You will definitely enjoy this book and all the other books in the Series.

    An Excellent Book

    Contemporary, Paranormal Colorado

    Alicia Greiston is a bounty hunter that is determined to bring down a mob family. Because of her career choice she has made sure that she doesn¿t have relationships with men for fear of them being killed because they are involved with her. All that changes when she meets Jake Silver. Alicia knows it is a very bad idea to get involved with him but she just can¿t seem to help it.

    Jake Silver took one look at Alicia and was determined to protect her. Luckily for her Jake is a lot more than he seems and knows how to protect himself and her from whatever threats might come their way. Jake¿s instincts are telling him to protect Alicia but when they starting having very real passionate dreams together Jake knows that Alicia is more to him than he first realized and now he will show her how a wolf protects his mate.

    With the passion that flairs between Alicia and Jake they are going to have to find a way to take down the bad guys and keep themselves safe while dealing with their attraction for each other. Alicia may not realize at first just how capably Jake is at taking care of them both but she is about to learn just what kind of man Jake truly is.

    This is a wonderful continuation to a series that is sure to please reader that love werewolves. The premise of this series really makes it stand out in a genre that has a great many wonderful stories in it. The author has managed to write a series that stays fresh and will keep the reader interested and addicted to the series. This will bring back some characters that readers familiar with this series will recognize and get a chance to visit again. This is one worth reading.
