Guest Author & Giveaway: Terry Spear featuring Legend of the White Wolf

Thursday, February 11

***This giveaway has ended, but you should still read the's worth your time:)
Thanks for joining the fun!***

Shapeshifters are my favorite type of paranormal romance hero.  You get the man and the beast...need I say more?  Terry Spear is my guest today to celebrate the release of her newest book in her werewolf series, LEGEND OF THE WHITE WOLF and talking about why a werewolf may be your true mate :)


When I first started blog tours for my werewolf series, I had some resistance to the notion that werewolves need loving, too. Vampires were fine. Why the distinction, I’m not sure. Both have wicked teeth. Both started out as horror stories. So why did vampires take the lead in sexy, and werewolves are second class citizens in the hunk department?

Now, I have to say that I first fell in love with Dracula at Brevard Community College in Florida where the sexy and suave villain captured the girl’s heart, and mine too. Believe me, I wanted to be the one standing up on the stage with him, waiting for him with such longing to bite ME! Forget the actress. *sigh*

Only all good things have to end, and poor Dracula, misunderstood as he was, had to die.

That had to change. He wasn’t bad, after all. Just…different.

Well, werewolves are just different, too.

Except I don’t remember a man who was really sexy before he turned werewolf, more of a man who fought against the horrible bone-breaking, painful order of the shift, who was a beast more than wolf, and I felt more sympathy for him because I knew he had to die in the end.

In my stories, no matter what kind of urban fantasy they are, there are good guys and bad guys. Good vampires, bad ones. Good wolves (werewolves, that is) and bad ones. Good humans and…well, you get the point. It’s not an all or none kind of world. And even the villains have some redeeming feature, just as the good guys have some darker secrets. Which makes them more real.

But I’m sliding away from the hunky part, and I did want to touch further on this. Werewolves are part wolf, so they have the pack mentality, for the most part. They love their family, cherish their mate, are totally wonderful as parents for their offspring. That’s a wolf’s nature. Inborn. They’re also great at playing, even though it often is a way for them to show who’s boss, the pecking order in the pack, and teaches the younger ones how to hunt. And when another pack member is injured, they cater to them, bring them food, help them as much as they can. When the female has her offspring, she’s totally in charge. Which is just the way it should be!

To me, it’s not just that the males are virile creatures, magnificent in their human form as well as their wolf’s, but all of the above that makes them a hunk. With a sense of playfulness, tenderness, loyalty and commitment, and of course the sexy part of the equation, that’s what makes the man worth investing in.

I believe werewolves have been getting the short end of the stick and it’s time to stand up and say, “Werewolves are people too, and they deserve some good loving!” Will you give a werewolf a hug today?

Never know when you might find your true mate! :)

Thanks so much for having me at Seductive Musings today. And if I can only convince one person to try out a werewolf for size—hmm-hmm, today, I’ve done my pack duty.

In this fourth in Spear's series, Private Eye Cameron MacPherson and Faith O'Mallery are both on quests that lead them into the world of magical wolves... 

Cameron arrives in the Canadian Arctic to search for his partners in his P.I. business who are late returning from a hunting trip. Faith is there to discover what her father had seen in the same area years earlier that had made him lose touch with reality—man-wolves, he called them. 

The two tumble into an icy world of enemies bent on destroying the lupus garou kind. As they turn into lupus garou themselves, and bond with the pack that only they can rescue from destruction, Cameron and Faith find their soul mates in each other.

A retired lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army Reserves, Terry Spear has an MBA from Monmouth College.  As an eclectic writer, she dabbles in the paranormal, historical and true life stories for both teen and adult audiences.  She is the author of Winning the Highlander’s Heart and The Vampire in My Dreams (young adult). Spear lives in Crawford, Texas.  You can find Terry at her website, Wickedly Romantic blog, Casablanca Authors blog, Fierce Romance blog, Shapeshifter Romance, and Facebook.

Definitely a wolf girl.
I haven't read many shape shifter books. I'm just now starting to sample the paranormal field. The TWILIGHT SERIES was a start and Jacob beat Edward, hand down. (I'm a children's librarian, need to keep up with what is out there:)

Terry Spear/Terry Lee Wilde February 11, 2010 at 7:38 AM  

Miss Kallie, yes, cuddling up with a warm wolf definitely offers advantages. :) You would NOT be cold in the least!!! Hope you love the book!

Jeanette, yes, the choice is difficult! In the old days, I would have just wanted to nurture the werewolf, take him in, make him whole. But now...he is definitely "whole." No nurturing needed!!! And he's definitely there for his mate! All there. :)

LibraryPat, I love to read YA paranormals also! I loved Crown Duel and others like that where the heroine was proactive and though she and the others had progressively worsening days, one after another, she'd fight to make things right. SHE fought for right, not someone else who'd do all the thinking or fighting for her. :) Those are my favorite kinds of YA. :) One of the shapeshifting stories I really loved is by Amelia Atwater Rhodes, Hawksong. :)

Great post.
I'm both a vamp girl and wolf girl :) I like them both.Its too hard to pick so I'll take both

So far, I've been a vamp-girl but I reserve the right to change my mind. I have been following Ms. Spears blog tour, definitely keen on giving this series a try.

My favorite genre to read is Paranormal. I must admit I'm a big vamp fan but I also enjoy wolfs, sounds like a good series!

Kara February 11, 2010 at 1:39 PM  

I am definitely a wolf to sink my hands in all that fur.

Terry Spear/Terry Lee Wilde February 11, 2010 at 2:39 PM  

Elaing, I was told I cheated when I did that! LOL But I tend to agree. It's really the heart and soul that counts. If he's the one for you, whatever he is, he's the one! :)

Scorpio, I hope you love the series! I have to admit when I saw werewolves in action when they were mere beasties, I never thought of them as total hunks. Whereas vampires were. But that has all changed! :) Both can be total sweethearts with that intriguing paranormal edge, with the right kind of loving!

Tetewa, thanks! I love paranormal, urban fantasy and historical romance. And though I've loved some romantic suspense, I love them even more if they have a paranormal element to them. It just makes for a more interesting world. :)

Kara, I love your picture! Wolves are such beautiful creatures. He makes me think of a werewolf who is eying you as his conquest! Will you be the right mate for him? :) Of course you will. You already want to run your hand through his fur, and that definitely will get his attention!!!

Woohoo, Booklover, a near convert! Vampires are great! Werewolves are too. They can both be yours, really! :)

Yay, another wolf girl, Crystal GB!!! Then these wolves are waiting just for you! Thanks so much!

CallMeKayla February 11, 2010 at 3:37 PM  

I can pick both, can't I??? I love the sexy fangs, but at the same time, who could resist a sexy growl with a protective/territorial streak a mile wide?
LOL that's it, I want both! I'm offically a wolpire girl hahaha.

Susan Helene Gottfried February 11, 2010 at 3:41 PM  

No need to enter me, ladies. I'm dropping in to say thanks for the e-mail. I've got this posted at Win a Book for you.

I like both vampire and wolf. Actually, anything paranormal.

I have read the other books in this series and am looking forward to reading Legend of the White Wolf.

alba February 11, 2010 at 4:12 PM  

I love the wolf mainly terry's wolves....
If I remember the old werewolf movies it was the love of the woman that prevented the Change...
I'm a GFC I dont have a blog but I passed the word in a email hope they stop by...
Terry love the cover too so enjoy going to your blog seeing the picture of the wolfs.
have a great day.

Beth Caudill February 11, 2010 at 8:18 PM  

My answer is wolf. I still can't write a vampire tale to save my life. Probably because while Frankenstein, the Mummy, and Wolfman never scared me...the old black and white Dracula stories scared me. They knew how to do suspense.

I'm anxiously waiting for The Wolfman movie to come out. Even if it doesn't have a happy ending....I still want to see it.

Terry Spear/Terry Lee Wilde February 11, 2010 at 9:21 PM  

CallmeKayla, too funny!!! You got it. You can definitely have both. Just think of it as a woman's choice. I think of Dracula as more of a theater kind of guy, whereas a wolfish hunk is more for the out-of-doors experience. Both can be lots of fun. Why limit ourselves, right? :)

Thanks so much, Susan!

Woohoo, thanks, Estella!!! You are officially a member of the pack! Hope you love Legend of the White Wolf!

Ann, thanks so much!!! I love showing off the wolves and am thrilled you're stopping by to see them on my blog! I couldn't remember what stopped the change in the old werewolf movies, but it seemed the guy was fighting the change, couldn't remember what horrible things he'd done every time he saw the full moon, and they ended up killing him to put him out of his misery. argh.

Waving at Chey, who can be a member of the wolf pack any day!

Thanks, Beth! LOL about Dracula. I loved him. I truly hated that he had to die. But I love the werewolves and feel the same way about them. :) I'm not sure I want to see The Wolfman. :) I really am a HEA kind of reader and movie goer! :)

I'm both-I think of vampires as dashing and sexual but with the werewolf there is the feeling of losing control!!

I fell in love with Rollo in the Outlander Series so I have to say definitely a Wolf Gal....but I do like the idea of being bitten on the long as it doesn't hurt and there is no blood...Hehehe.

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
