The last thing the siblings anticipate is that Meara's desire for a mate will lead her off getting her brother nearly killed and left memory-less on the frigid beach. Lucky for Hunter, Tessa Anderson, the photographer he is supposed to deal with finds him as she searches the beach for dry wood to keep warm during an ice storm. Injured, suffering from amnesia and intensely attracted to Tessa, Hunter agrees to help protect her from the stalker that has made a point of invading her home. With Tessa's brother convicted of murdering Bethany, his girlfriend, the last thing she needs is someone breaking into their home. If she and Hunter can unravel the mystery of who really murdered Bethany and who is stalking her, maybe they can overcome the sensual draw they have to one another before hearts get broken.
I really like the mythology of this series and how each book truly can stand alone. The romances are very traditional, if a little formulaic for my tastes and can easily appeal to romance readers who are not into paranormals. What made To Tempt the Wolf lose some of its potential "I liked it" mojo for me was that this was an amnesia plot. Done well this plot device can be entertaining but I personally don't care for them unless they are very well written. I felt that part of the story was a bit contrived and resolved far too easily for me to really love it. Overall there were an awful lot of plot threads coming from different directions and relating to secondary characters that at times made the progression feel frustratingly stop-start. Since I am a romance reader who does want a good story for the romance to fall in this was a tough read in that regard.
From a strictly romance point-of-view Tessa and Hunter make a good couple. Their chemistry is believable and they certainly can't resist one another forever! Spear also does something really interesting with the lupus garou and human pairing which I personally felt opens up a lot of possibilities for later installments in this series. Something I think a lot of romance readers may like about To Tempt the Wolf, and this series in general, is that the sexual scenes flow pretty naturally and realistically while still maintaining enough of the romance novel steam. They aren't so overly dramatic and wordy that they lose plausibility.
While not my favorite in this series so far based on personal tastes I do think most readers will find this one romantic, hard to predict and entertaining. Enjoy!
When Tessa Anderson's brother is jailed for murder, that's only the start of her chapter of accidents. But that man on the beach has a certain animal magnetism that's really hard to resist. He starts by saving Tessa's life. Then he saves her friends' lives. And soon the strange coincidences start to pile up.
If only Hunter could remember who he was. If only someone could work out why Tessa smells so good. And if only there wasn't a full moon rising.
To Tempt the Wolf, Terry Spear's newest entry in her werewolves series, fulfils all expectations. Only Terry could create such a completely believable world, with such completely real characters. And only Terry could write a series where the individuals are always new, the distant connections always just close and far enough away to be exactly right, and the imagination so free to fall so deeply in love. These are werewolves like they were meant to be, fully human, fully wolf, fully integrated, and more. And the tale is in the more.
Tess Anderson is a wildlife photographer for a magazine. She doesn't really like it, but she needs the money to help defend her brother. But she is risking her life to snap pictures of a forest fire, a grey wolf appears. She retreats, but not without her heart in her mouth. It's uncommon for any animal to stay where danger threatens, but she can't think about it now as she is on the way to her brother's trial for murder.
Hunter Greymore is a lupus garou, a grey werewolf. When the forest fire gets too close to their home, he packs up what belongings he can and his sister Meara. They travel to his Uncle Basil's cabin to stay and to see if any of their pack return. But down the road from the cabin lives a wildlife photographer and her brother, and it won't do for them to catch
Hunter or his sister shape-shift.
But when Hunter shows up on Tess's beach half-naked and injured, she has even more problems. For instance, how attracted she is to him. Hunter doesn't recall how he ended up on Tess's beach, but he does remember he is a werewolf. So to keep a low profile, he stays with Tess at her cabin and soon is immersed in her investigations for her brother as well as trying to figure out his own past. But the chemistry sizzles between Tess and Hunter and a choice will soon have to be made. They can't remain together if she remains human.
A paranormal romp that sizzles! Action-packed romance and suspense-filled plot add up to pure magic. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. Terry Spear is a great addition to the paranormal genre!
