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!
Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance
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)

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. :)
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 on...be 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?
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 YA...no 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?
