Read an Excerpt
With a snowstorm threatening, Tom Silver examined the tracks of the second wolf reported this week by a disgruntled farmer. The tracks circled the sheep pen and then loped off toward the woods. The farm was in the Silver Town werewolf territory-not that the human farmers had a clue they lived in an area claimed by a pack of gray werewolves.
Wearing an old jacket, hip-high rubber boots, and dungarees, farmer Bill Todd scowled at Tom. "Your brother said he'd take care of these wolves. Three weeks of threats to our sheep, and nothin's been done about it."
"We're looking for them," Tom assured him, standing to his full height.
"Sheep and calves are being threatened at different farms and ranches," Bill railed. "Five. We can't be up all night patrolling for wolves all the time-and your brother said we wouldn't have to. I swear, if I see a wolf, I'm going to shoot it dead before it gets to my livestock."
"We'll get the wolves that are doing this," Tom reassured him. They had to before a farmer or rancher shot an innocent werewolf or a wolf that was all wolf. He glanced at the tracks the wolves had left.
"The three of them arrived before sunrise. I heard a noise, came running out here with my rifle and a camp light, and shined it right into their glowing green eyes. When I set the lantern down and aimed the rifle, they raced off. I took a shot, but the damned weapon jammed."
"We'll take care of them. Do you mind if I leave my pickup truck here for a while?" Tom didn't wait for an answer. He immediately stalked through the snow, tracking the wolves.
Bill called after him, "Hey, a snowstorm's headed this way. You can't hunt them now."
Tom kept going. He appreciated the farmers' and ranchers' frustrations, even though Tom's oldest brother, Darien Silver, took responsibility for their losses as the owner of the land the farmers leased. The pack couldn't afford to have humans accidentally shooting werewolves or harmless wolves. Some pack members were too newly turned to have a lot of control over their shifting, particularly with the full moon approaching in another week.
Tom followed the trail, which seemed to indicate only one wolf had run this way. Tom knew better. One would precede the others, leaving what looked like one set of tracks to disguise how many were in the "pack." The trail the lead wolf left would also make it easier for the others to follow.
Flurries whipped into a thicker curtain of snow. Tom wanted desperately to shift and run the wolves down. But his brother had ordered that none of the pack shift within five miles of farms and ranches until they resolved the matter.
Tom had only managed to cover a mile and a half from Bill Todd's spread when his cell jingled. He didn't have to look at the ID to know Darien was calling him and would order him home. "Yeah, Darien?" Tom continued to watch the trees as he followed the wolf tracks.
"Bill Todd called me. Said that fool youngest brother of mine tore off, looking for wolf tracks-unarmed-and the snow's coming down hard, so there's barely any visibility. He said, and I quote, ‘No damn sheep is worth the life of a good man.'"
Amused that Bill would say that, as much as he loved his sheep and wanted the wolves dead, Tom paused. The snowflakes grew fatter, nearly obliterating any open space between them. The snow quickly filled up each of the paw prints left behind.
Breathing heavily, Tom picked up his pace, not wanting to stop.
"Tom, we'll get them. Some other time. I want you home. The snow's coming down hard enough that you'll lose track of them soon. Visibility is worsening."
"We have to stop this, Darien."
"I know. We will. Come home." Darien sounded like he was asking, but Tom knew better. His brother was the pack leader and his word was law.
Tom stopped and smelled the air, hating that he couldn't catch any whiff of which wolves were causing the trouble. He surveyed the Colorado blue spruce trees for any movement. He felt in his bones that the wolves were watching him, waiting to see if he'd keep searching.
Wolves didn't normally attack people. But Tom and the rest of their wolf pack suspected these were not wolves but rogue werewolves-and that meant all bets were off.
"Next time, I'm not stopping for anything," Tom warned both Darien and the wolves that might be observing him.
He saw movement. A gray wolf's tail rose for a second as the wolf turned and bounded through the woods.
Tom took off running, forgetting he hadn't ended the call with his brother. Darien could hear Tom's heavy breathing and his quickened pace as he stomped over the frozen ground.
"Tom, if I have to-"
"I saw one of them, damn it."
"Who was it? Did you recognize-"
"Just the flash of a gray tail. I don't know who it was."
"You can't run him down. Not as a human. It could be a trap."
Tom stopped running, swore under his breath, and again watched the woods.
"If three of them are responsible, you won't be any match for them even if you shift."
"Damn it, Tom."
"All right. Tomorrow, if we have fresh tracks, I'm hunting them down once and for all."
Elizabeth Wildwood had barely arrived in Silver Town before the snowstorm hit. Surprised the owner of Hastings Bed and Breakfast was a gray werewolf, Elizabeth was thankful the sweet woman didn't seem to mind what Elizabeth was-or wasn't. She had four more days' leave from her job at the Canyon Press in Texas to write an article on skiing at a Colorado resort. But that wasn't the only reason why she was here.
She quickly retired to her room and called North Redding, a red wolf from Bruin's former pack, which was now led by another red wolf Elizabeth didn't know. Technically, her father had also belonged to the pack, but she had never been part of it. North had been the only one from the red pack to treat her without scorn. Elizabeth hoped to connect with him despite the storm, but she wouldn't go to his place to meet him. His home was too close to where her uncle lived.
"North, I just got in. We can meet tomorrow. I'll give you the time and place in the morning."
"You said you would arrive tomorrow. You were supposed to stay with me. You agreed I'd pick you up at the airport and bring you to my house."
"I never agreed to that, North. I said I'd decide when I arrived in Colorado." She didn't want to say she didn't trust him. Truth was, she didn't trust her uncle. If North let it slip that she was in the area, Uncle Quinton or her half brother, Sefton, might try to finish what they had started last time. Especially considering why she was here.
"You're afraid I'll tell your Uncle Quinton that you're here? Is that it? If he knew what I planned to share with you, he'd kill me!" North was angry that Elizabeth didn't believe in him, but she couldn't. He might not be working with her uncle and half brother, but he was still in their pack. It was just safer this way.
"I flew in early ahead of the snowstorm. Why won't you at least tell me what the evidence is?" she said to placate him.
"Fine. Talk to you tomorrow." She had hoped never to return to that part of the country. After her parents were murdered, it hadn't been home for her. It never would be. Killing her uncle wouldn't make things right, but it had to be done-for her parents, for her, and for the pack she had never belonged to.
The next morning, with eight inches of new snowfall, Tom Silver knew he wouldn't be able to track the wolves who were stalking farmers' calves and sheep. Not when the culprits left no scent.
Tom's middle triplet brother, Jake, was dealing with problems at their leather goods factory. Their eldest brother and pack leader, Darien, joined Tom at the floor-to-ceiling sunroom window as he stared out at the beauty of the snow decorating the boughs of the pine trees, making them dip to the snow-covered ground. A fire roared in the fireplace, the room as cozy as a wolf's den with its soft, wraparound brown velour chairs set around a marble coffee table. The views of the outdoors made the room feel as though it was open to the wilderness.
Tom cast a nod in his brother's direction. "Morning, Darien."
Humans often mistook them for each other because they were so similar in build and appearance. Wolves smelled the difference. None of them made that mistake. Darien had the darkest hair and eyes of the three, and Tom was the fairest-"of them all," Jake liked to joke.
"Hey, Tom. I know you wanted to go after the wolves again today. I doubt you'd find much of anything." Darien wore Lelandi's pink apron over a brown wool sweater and had a few splatters of oatmeal on his blue jeans. This was his usual attire, oatmeal mush and all, when he fed his triplet babies-two boys and a girl. A couple of gobs of cereal clung to strands of his dark brown hair.
He often took care of the kids in the morning so that his mate, Lelandi, the smartest, most effective psychologist in the area, could see clients. Not to mention that she was the only lupus garou psychologist around.
Tom swore he would buy his brother a manlier apron when he had the time. He glanced down at a splotch of oatmeal on his brother's sheepskin slipper boot. "I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who looks that messy after feeding your brood."
Darien gave him an elusive smile, warning him that when Tom found a mate, he was in for the same trouble. "Two of the ski patrol are out sick today with the flu, and the resort could use you up there."
That got Tom's attention and he stiffened, alert and wary. Every time one of them got sick with flu-like symptoms, they worried about the wolf getting a virus that would prevent their shifting from wolf to human form.
"Don't worry. It's not anything like the cases of ‘wolf fever' we had before," Darien said quickly. "Jake will relieve you at noon. And a couple of other things..." He cleared his throat.
Tom couldn't read his brother's expression. Wolves paid attention to slight shifts in body language, and he could usually tell what his brother was thinking. But not this time. Which meant something was up and Tom wouldn't like it.
"First, Anthony and Cody Woodcroft are on the slopes today. Their dad said that he wanted the ski patrol to kinda watch out for 'em. If they get into any trouble at all, he wants their passes pulled and them off the slopes. He also wants to be notified at once."
"Okay, can do." The boys had gotten into trouble before, mainly for participating in high-risk adventures, but Tom had never heard of them doing anything unsafe or against the rules on the slopes. Since it was the first item on the list Darien wanted to talk about, Tom figured it was the least problematic. "The other thing?"
"Bertha Hastings said she has a guest at the B and B doing a story on our ski resort. She missed the ski shuttle and Bertha wanted to know if you could run her up to the slopes, since you were going that way."
Tom narrowed his eyes a little. "Is she a wolf?" Bertha wasn't beyond matchmaking. He could imagine Bertha had delayed the woman on purpose so she missed the shuttle.
"She is and she isn't."
"She either is or she isn't," Tom countered.
Darien looked serious now. "Let's just say she's part wolf. We can't put the town off-limits to visitors, but a woman like that could cause trouble for the pack."
"Part wolf?" Tom echoed, frowning.
"I'm sure you can resist this woman's charms. She's up here doing a story on a ski resort. I don't trust the other bachelor wolves in the pack to leave her alone unless one of us takes her in hand to signal the others to keep their paws to themselves."
Tom understood why Darien wouldn't take care of the matter himself. Running a pack and the town and raising three toddlers kept him busy. Still, he didn't like it. "Why couldn't-"
"Jake's busy and he's mated. That leaves the situation up to you to handle. They'll listen to you and back off."
Tom had thought he would be tracking the mysterious wolves who had been sneaking around their territory-a much more suitable task for a pack sub-leader. Now he had to babysit a couple of male teen wolves and a woman who wasn't quite a wolf?
He took a deep breath. Still, he knew his brother's reasoning was sound. Wolf-shifter females were rarer than males in any pack-and jealously guarded, too. The Silver pack had been through some trouble of that sort with female shifters from the neighboring red pack. The men in the red wolf pack felt that the gray wolves should have had no claim to the red she-wolves. Tom knew Darien would like to avoid that sort of situation again with this newcomer.
"All right. But I'll be patrolling this morning, so I won't be able to watch the teens or the woman all that much."
"Alert the ski patrol to watch the boys and let you know if they do anything that's unsafe. The others can be your eyes and ears. When our bachelor males see that the woman's with you-so to speak-the word will spread and hopefully no one will hassle her. Learn when she's leaving the area and work yourself into her schedule. If she doesn't leave the slopes until later this afternoon when you're free, you can be her ski buddy."
Tom raised a brow.
"You know what I mean. Make sure you're with her until she leaves. I don't mean you have to stay with her overnight."
"Not happening." Although one-night stands with humans were acceptable for wolf shifters, Tom didn't dare show any interest in a human around here. In this town, every wolf would hear of it. Too much of a problem with rumor control. And a part wolf? What the hell did that mean anyway? "I'm off."
Tom threw on his parka, grabbed his gloves, and headed out. He had no doubt a woman who was part she-wolf wouldn't interest him in the least.
Decorated in Queen Anne-style furniture, Elizabeth's bedroom at the B and B made her feel like she'd been transported to the past. The chairs had clawed feet, and everything from the footboards to the canopy over the bed was draped in ecru lace.
Elizabeth paced across the elegant bedroom. She had called North to arrange a time and place to meet with him. He had agreed to hand over the evidence of her uncle's complicity in murdering her parents in exchange for the deed to her family horse farm, but the red wolf was not happy.
"What do you mean you're in Silver Town?" North snarled.
"I'm writing the article for my newspaper here. Bring the evidence to the ski resort. You should be able to arrive there by two. Right?"
North didn't say anything, but she could hear his highly agitated heavy breathing on the line.
"I won't meet you at your place," Elizabeth continued, disregarding how irritated he was with her. "I'll be at the Timberline Ski Lodge at two."
"You couldn't have picked a worse place for me to meet with you." North finally let out his breath. "If I have any trouble getting there-the road conditions are bad due to the snowstorm-I'll give you a ring."
"All right. See you this afternoon otherwise." She ended the call and left the room to join Bertha, the owner of the B and B, in the kitchen for breakfast.
She hadn't realized the B and B was run by a gray wolf couple, but she'd been fortunate that the husband was off on a trip somewhere and his wife was really nice to her. She thought maybe Bertha was just an oddity, but then again, maybe because Elizabeth wasn't a gray wolf, Bertha didn't care what she was.
"Good morning, Elizabeth," Bertha greeted her. The woman had springy silver curls and a round face and a cherub smile that reminded Elizabeth of Mrs. Claus. She wore a colorful burgundy and blue floral dress that matched the bouquets of flowers sitting on the dining-room table, kitchen bar, and tables in the common room. Ivies wound around wrought-iron plant stands, and small ficus trees were grouped next to the big windows that looked out on a tree-filled yard blanketed in snow.
"Good morning. The kitchen smells delightful." Elizabeth sat down at the table covered in white lace to have a cup of steaming-hot chocolate and a freshly baked cinnamon roll. The frosting melted over the top and dripped down the sides.
The scent of cinnamon filled the kitchen, and Elizabeth took in another deep breath. Just breathing in the sweet, sugary smell was bound to pack on the pounds.
"Are you sure the ski patroller won't be too put out about having to drop by and pick me up?" Elizabeth asked before she took a bite of the homemade cinnamon roll. If she didn't ski enough to burn up the calories on the slopes, she would have to run in her wolf coat in the woods tonight.
"No, Tom has to drive right by here to get to the slopes. His brother Darien said Tom works until noon and would bring you home anytime you're ready."
"He doesn't have to do that. I can take the shuttle."
The front door opened, bells jingling, and though Elizabeth couldn't see the new arrival, she assumed it was her ride. She didn't rise from the table, not wanting to appear too anxious or foolish if it wasn't Tom.
"Tom, is that you?" Bertha called out. "We're in the kitchen."
"Yeah, is the lady ready?" Tom sounded a little gruff, annoyed, put out.
Just like Elizabeth had assumed he'd be. She should have called a cab, if they even had cabs in Silver Town.
Tom strode into the kitchen as if he was on a mission and ready to get it over with.
He was tall, and his light-brown windswept hair and shadow of a beard gave him a rugged look. His cheeks were full of color from the cold. His eyes were the same rich shade of light brown as his hair, and they were instantly locked on hers.
He took in a deep breath, and she did, too, in a wolf's way of determining how someone felt. Instantly, she knew he wasn't all human.
She got a whole lot more of a perspective than just emotions.
He was one hot-looking gray wolf. And that could mean trouble for her.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Tom Silver is the second in the Gray werewolf pack. The wolves run the entire town and the ski lodge. When a lady red wolf/coyote shifter comes to town, heads are going to turn. Tom is resolute not to be sucked into this mating thing but its evident that he quickly finds himself pulled to their new visitor. Elizabeth Wildwood has stayed under the radar of wolf packs for years. As a ½ breed, she was despised by her families pack and numerous attempts where made on her life. Now someone is out for blood once again and the pushy alpha Tom doesn't seem to understand he is putting himself in harms way by playing her protector. As always, Spear pulls us in with endearing and interesting characters...some familiar, some new, but in the end you can't help but become invested in their story. The attraction is slow building making you an intimate participant in its development. Let's face it Terry Spear is a master of shifter stories. She writes super alpha males but still gives us strong females that are believable as their equals. Silence of the Wolf was a highly entertaining, action packed adventure with heart. I received this ARC copy of Silence of the Wolf from SOURCEBOOKS Casablanca in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication March 4, 2014.
I bought this book before even reading what the story was about. I have fallen in love with all of Spear's shifter books so even though I have only read the first couple chapters it is no surprise that I am already in love with this book! Terry Spear has quickly became my favorate author, I love the strong heroine that can stand and fight on her own but then becomes stronger after meeting her mate, and I love the protective all alpha males. Although Terry's main characters are very simalar from book to book she builds on each one and gives them their own unique style. What I loved most about this book as well as a lot of other books Spear writes is we get to revisit the characters we all fell in love with in past books. Although you can read this book without reading the other twelve it is so much more rewarding to read the others and have the background knowledge of the characters. I also love how Spear makes subtle connections of her other shifter series. I would really like to see her bring together jaguars and wolves into one book were they discover that each other exists. I would also really like to see Thompson the zoo man (although he is not in this book) become a werewolf or at the very least learn of them. I am very excited for the highlander shifter books that will be coming out soon and really just to see where Terry takes us next. Keep up the good work!!!
Anyone who skips over author Terry Spear’s Heart of the Wolf series because it’s listed as a paranormal romance is missing out on stories packed with depth and intrigue, fascinating characters, stirring surroundings, and heartwarming relationships. In the latest installment in the series, SILENCE OF THE WOLF, Spear tackles issues of sibling rivalry, family outcast, and finding acceptance. She shows how some families pull together giving love and support, while others turn on each other thinking only of themselves. Since the death of her parents, Elizabeth Wildwood has been on her own. Her half-brother and uncle want nothing to do with her because of her ‘mixed’ half-wolf, half-coyote blood. She is willing to risk everything, including her life, to get the evidence of who killed her parents. Elizabeth ventures into gray wolf territory for the evidence and to write an article on the Silver Town Ski Resort. She finds the town is wolf-run by the Silver brothers and their pack. Her encounter with sub-leader Tom Silver is life changing. The last thing Tom Silver is interested in is finding a mate and settling down like his brothers. When he has to escort Elizabeth to the slopes for her article, he discovers her scent and memory linger with him long after she’s gone. When it appears Elizabeth’s life is in danger, Tom and his family are there to protect and help her. It’s a strange new concept for Elizabeth to have someone in her corner. She has to discover who killed her parents and if she can trust someone loves her for who she really is. The story is heartwarming and funny. It’s filled with suspense and steamy romance. It’s a mesmerizing story of love, family and friendship that will have you believing in wolf shifters. The characters are likable and realistic. The story moves at a quick pace and is hard to put down. Spear has incorporated her vast research of wolves into this tantalizing tale. Her rich descriptions of the setting brings the town to life. SILENCE OF THE WOLF is the 13th installment in the Heart of the Wolf series, but can be read on its own. New readers to the series won’t be left in the dark and returning fans will be able to catch up with old friends from past installments. The romance is sizzling, the characters charismatic, and the plot suspenseful for an entertaining, heart-pounding, page turner that will hold you captive until the very end. FTC Full Disclosure - This book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.
Shifter stories are my favorites. I found this one slow moving. First time reading this author. Disappointed especially in the pacing of the plot.
Terry Spear takes readers back to Silver Town in the thirteenth book in the Heart of the Wolf series. Readers of the series will love this very original addition to the series featuring a wolf/coyote hybrid. Spear once again entrances readers with her action packed, romantic writing. This paranormal romance has plenty of suspense and willhave readers on the edge of their collective seats, as Tom Silver, youngest of the Silver brothers finally finds a woman he can't live without. A great addition to this wonderful series. What I liked: Tom Silver has been one of my favorites from the very beginning of this series. He is brother to the alpha of his pack and that comes with a lot of responsibility. He is a protector. He looks after Darien's interests whether it is in pack matters or business and he even takes on the role as an enforcer in some cases. I was so happy to see him finally get his story. Spear has done such a wonderful job of fleshing out her characters in every book they show up in, that readers by this time, really feel like they know Tom and the kind of woman it will take to make him stand up and take notice. Spear does not disappoint with Elizabeth. Elizabeth is unlike any other character we have seen in this series so far. She is a hybrid, part wolf, part coyote. And because of that she has suffered a great deal. She has been discriminated against, shown prejudice and eventually this caused her to believe that pack life is not for her. I felt a lot of pain from this character in some ways and I just wanted to comfort her and let her know that it was okay to be different. I thought that Spear really approached this touchy subject in a way that will educate readers about prejudice and it's effects. Elizabeth finds a lot of love not only from Tom but from his pack that surprises her and changes her in some ways. She becomes more confident in herself and finds her own self-worth. Such a great character! The romance between Tom and Elizabeth isn't all fun and games though there is definitely a bit of that in any Terry Spear novel. Had the characters in this book not been werewolves it would have been categorized as romantic suspense. It is action packed to say the least. Not only is the relationship between Tom and Elizabeth at the forefront of the book, but there are also some dead bodies, about, a few rogue werewolves causing some trouble and the mystery involving the deaths of Elizabeth's parents. All in a good days work for this author. And very well done. What I didn't like: As with most of the books I have read by this author there wasn't a thing I didn't like about this one. Elizabeth had a bit of a stubborn streak that got a little annoying once or twice, but being the character that she was, that was not unexpected. Bottom Line: If for some unfathomable reason you have not discovered this series yet, you need to buy this book. It can be read as a stand alone, but the entire series is exceptionally well written and worth every second of your reading time. Silence of the Wolf may be book 13 but it is just as amazing as book 1 was!
I received an e-galley of Silence of the Wolf for an honest review. I'm pretty sure I've said it before, but it bears repeating, Terry Spear can write some hella good wolves. And jaguars. And she's got a new cougar out that I'm excited to read. But I digress. Back to the wolves. Specifically Tom Silver. The last of the Silver triplets. I was so excited to read his book and was not disappointed in the least!! Tom's book proved to be just as good as I had hoped for. Seeing Tom break out his protective side, more than big-brother, was great. He's more of the quiet alpha. Not the beat his chest and roar type. Admittedly, I was surprised by the way the relationship between Tom and Elizabeth's played out. Throughout the Silver Town pack's books Tom has been the one who believed in dream mating more than the other two. This is a bit of a spoiler, and I'm sorry, but Tom didn't get a dream mating. Which was a twist I didn't expect. Instead, he and Elizabeth found each other. AND THEY ARE PERFECT FOR EACH OTHER. Seriously. AWESOME. Elizabeth is another strong, alpha female wolf. She is hell bent on doing things by herself. But she knew when to ask for help as well. She ranks as one of my favorite heroines in this series to date. Once again, many of the Silver Town pack make appearances. And there are even a couple of surprise visits by other wolves we've met along the way. No, I won't spoil that. I'll just say I was oh so happy to see them show. Such a great tie in. Silence of the Wolf is another win. If you like romance and shifters, don't miss out. Even though this is number 13 it's not necessary to read the rest of the series. Although, they are all great reads.
NUMBER OF HEARTS: 3 1/4 REVIEW: When Tom is asked by his Alpha (aka his brother) to look after the new shewolf in town to say that Tom was happy is an understatement. He doesn’t want to have to babysit some shewolf who is visiting for a short period. That is until he sees her, then he thinks this might be a very good idea. Elizabeth is in town to wrap up a story she is writing on the ski resort and to meet a member of her old back. Elizabeth has been trying to solve her parents murder for years. Now that she finally has a clue as to whom nothing is going to stop her. Not even falling down a mountain. I liked this story. Love Tom. Liked Elizabeth. But something in the story was off for me. I am not 100% sure that it is or why but it just was. Now if you are a fan of Terry’s Heart of the Wolf series I am sure you will love this story. This is only my second book in this series. I think that maybe I have a lot of unanswered questions which means I need to go back and start with book 1. Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of the book from NetGalley & Sourcebooks Casablanca in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.
HOT Sexy Shifters - Terry Style! I LOVED it! I really enjoyed this read! I've loved reading every one of Terry's shifter stories and Tom's tale rocks! First of all, please know that this book can be savored as a stand-a-lone book. So... just because it's #13 in Terry's Heart of the Wolf series, don't think you have to have read the previous books in the series to fully appreciate Silence of the Wolf. That said, your pleasure will increase exponentially the more books you've read in the series, as you get to hang out again with previous much-loved characters. I loved Tom and Elizabeth. Elizabeth had moments where I wanted to shake her, but in her defense, she had not had an easy life. I liked her half-cougar side and hope that Terry will treat us to more wily cougars in the future. Tom was a bit shy and a little backward in knowing how to romance but I felt that made him all the more endearing. I loved catching up with the pack and the characters that I'd become attached to in previous books. The action was non-stop and, oh my, downright heart-racing scary at times. The story teems with romance, mystery, thrilling action, dynamic characters and surprising twists and turns. I love that every one of Terry's books end happily without cliffhangers. This is just a perfect paranormal read to curl up with in your easy chair! Just think ... hot sexy shifters, Terry-style! 4 1/2 Stars!!!!!!

In town to report a story and to meet up with North, a member of her Uncle's pack who was meeting her to hand over evidence of the murderer of her parents, Elizabeth is doing whatever she can to stay far away from her half-brother Sefton and her Uncle Quinton after they had both attempted to kill her, being a loner and having not been a part of a pack her whole life because of being discriminated against, she is surprised after meeting Tom and his pack how welcome she is even after them finding out her mixed heritage. Tom is attracted to her straight away, but is dismayed when after being pushed down a ski slope and having her room broken into and her belongings stolen she leaves without saying good-bye, but unbeknownst to both of them their paths cross again when Tom is out investigating wolves threatening farmer's livestock when he comes across a plane crash and finds Elizabeth among the wreckage, the only survivor, he takes her back to his cabin and it's from here that their relationship takes a step forward. But it's not the end of all the action though, we still have to discover who was responsible for Elizabeth's kidnapping, her push down the slopes, the robbery as well as the wolves prowling the farms before these two get their happily ever after. Oh and we get to meet Sheriff Peter's long-lost brother and you'll never guess who it is, I was surprised in a very happy way, plus I love this character and I was happy to see him make an appearance in another book. The chemistry between these two is hot, I've been eagerly awaiting Tom's book for quite a while now and I'm so happy that it was so good, I love how different characters from each book have met before or have known each other and we discover these relationships throughout the series. I can forsee plenty more stories that can come out of this series, many more characters that deserve their stories told. Terry has a way of writing extremely exciting, hot and drool-worthy alpha males that will leave you weak-kneed and desperate for more. I eagerly await each and every installment that is released and to fall in love with each and every characters stories. For fans of paranormal romance series I highly recommend this series.
The plot was ok but the writing was not quite as polished or easy to read that im used to. Would not purchase other books by this author.
Good story , glad to touch base with anna and borjn again and meet the triplets.
