Werewolves for Grown-Ups in Woman's World!

Thanks so much to Rhonda Valverde who was interviewed by Woman's World for mentioning my werewolf books--Heart of the Highland Wolf!!!

I loved it: Werewolves for Grown Ups! Yes!!! I couldn't have been more thrilled, and again, want to thank Rhonda for thinking of my wolfish hunks when she was interviewed!!!

And Romantic Times Magazine gave Dreaming of the Wolf a great review!

Sensuality: HOT

RT Rating

REVIEW: In the eighth in her Werewolf series, Spear gives us a love-at-first-sight romance with intense and almost immediate lovemaking that really works with her fascinating characters and exciting action-packed crime drama plot. A great fantasy twist and yet another way to interpret the legend of weres.

Sub pack leader Jake Sliver is in Breckenridge, Colo., to drop off of his photography at a gallery when he catches sight of a woman staking out two deadly criminal types. She more than intrigues him, she turns him on.

Alicia Greiston is a bounty hunter, only this hunt is personal. She’s after the mob men who had her mother killed. She’s also attracted the interest of a certain Jake Silver, who offers her his protection, which pleases her as she’s used to taking care of herself. She and Jake enter into a torrid affair which proves to be impossible to escape from, but they’re also on a crash course with disaster in the form of the mob. If they survive, will the feelings they have for each other survive too? (SOURCEBOOKS, Dec., 384 pp., $7.99)

Also, my wolf books at the B & N in Pensacola, FL are autographed!


I'm so excited about the newest cover, this for the 9th book in the werewolf series coming March 2011.

Isn't it gorgeous?

Sourcebooks sure knows how to do it right. :)

The Accidental Highland Hero
Someone had posted a comedian's blurb about how his mother had told him that women didn't really care about muscles as much as if a guy had a sense of humor. He soon discovered mothers lie.

But just think, if you truly had to live with someone who was dour and sour, humorless, but had the most beautiful muscles known to man, or someone who made you smile or laugh on the worst of days, who looked better with his shirt honest! Which would you prefer?

My dad was the world's biggest tease, which is where I get my inclination from naturally, and when my mom, who could be just as much of a character, asked him why he didn't have six-pack abs like that guy, he had a funny retort.

My dad did have muscles--which he showed off in his Adonis pose, muscles flexed, but he was leaner and more wiry. And he had the strongest hands in the world. He could unscrew any cap on any jar that was practically unscrewable by human hands--without the use of a wrench or can opener.

So to my mother's taunts about the six-pack abs?

"They'll all turn to flab."

And then he'd push out his belly to indicate what he meant. We'd all grimace and say, "Ewww," then he'd take a deep breath and suck it all in. And he was dad again. We told him to hold it that way. :)

Now, a man with a sense of humor is definitely more desirable to me than a man who has none, but is blessed or works at only having a beautiful bod, because when you're down in the dumps, who can be more uplifting? I don't mean, physically!

Oh, I know some of you will want both. Why can't you have both?

Well, of course Highlanders are going to have gorgeous muscles from swinging the sword to fight their enemies and carrying off the lovely lass--that's you.

And wolves are going to have beautiful muscles as they exercise on their runs and workouts with the fairer sex--that's you.

And the fae...oh, wait, that's muscles yet. Not that a girl can't be hopeful--but still...a guy with a sense of humor definitely trumps one without. :)

Now it's your turn--what do you think?

I can't leave the guys out of this one. So if you're a guy, you have a say too. Would you prefer a muscled girl or one with a sense of humor?

Terry, congrats on all the great news. You have some gorgeous covers to show off. Truly, you are an inspiration for many of us published and as-yet-to-be published authors.

Keep on writing and doing what you do so well. ( :

All I have to do is think of an overblown Mr. Universe body. It looks creepy.
Abs are no measure of a man. Tall is nice. So is useful strong.
Strong of character is better.

Dawn Marie Hamilron said...

Terry, The Woman's World spread looks great. I hope it brings you a ton more readers. :)

Jill James said...

Terry, you are swimming in glad tidings. Congratulations!! Muscles turn to flab, a sense of humor is forever.

Sheila Tenold said...

What great coverage, Terry! Congrats.
I love a man with a great sense of humor and a healthy body. Muscles are nice in your youthful years. All those hormones humming. Later, we need humor to face the day!

I go to a gym and am disgusted with some muscular men gazing at their bodies in the mirrored walls. Who wants a self-absorbed guy?

Terry Spear said...

Sorry I'm so late, ladies! We've been having storms and high winds at home, and can't keep connected! Then at work, the wireless is out, so I couldn't even catch up on my lunch hour. :(

Gabriella, thanks so much, lady!!! I hope I do inspire everyone to write. Believe me, I needed the inspiration to keep writing in the early days!!! And even today when I'm struggling with a new story and trying to figure where to go with it. Sometimes, they just come to me. Sometimes, it's truly work!
But ALWAYS fun work!

Ana, I so agree!!! I think the bigger the abs, the less he thinks of anything else. Kind of obsessive to my way of thinking.

Dawn, I so hope so!!! It is beautiful!

Jill, lol, my dad said the same thing. Yeah, a sense of humor is worth his weight in gold. :)

Yeah, see that's just what I was thinking, Sheila. Something wrong with that picture!!! :) Thanks!!!

Josie said...

What a fun post. Your question is a lot like the one I posted a while back when Dave Barry asked if women were interested in a guy's sense of humor or the way he looked.

Best wishes for your continued success.
