Nurse Carol Wood thought she had enough on her hands trying to cope with her psychic ability. Little did she know things were about to get a lot crazier.

In a twist of fate, Carol is bitten by a lupus garous. Now she must also come to terms with the fact that she’s a werewolf.

Because of her premonitions, Carol fights the urge to transform into a werewolf. In her visions she’s seen where the werewolves aren’t able to shift back to their human form.

Another visit to Silver Town puts new wolf nurse Carol Woods front and center as she evades the eager bachelor population of grays and defends her psychic abilities. Much to the chagrin of (Chester) Ryan McKinley of Green Valley gray wolf pack. Red wolf North believes Carol should be his since his cousin turned her and he's concocted a nefarious plot that would both get revenge on Silver Town grays and have Carol falling in his arm as his mate. Carol meanwhile is still fighting

This was a fairly good book. I generally like this series. I did miss one and it seems to have been the one that involved most of the characters in this one. Still it wasn't too difficult to follow along.

Why wasn't this one rated higher? I think mostly because the wolf fever situation didn't seem as dire as it should have. It wasn't until more than half way through the book that the first wolf got stuck in wolf form. We knew it was going to happen since the heroine had visions about it. So we we

Terry Spear has been on my ‘to-read’ list for a while, and I’m not ashamed to admit the half-naked men accompanied by a wolf on the covers swayed it for me. Even though it was slightly superficial to want to read a book based on the abs of a faceless man, I was quickly invested in the story and it’s the writing and the characters that kept me interested.

Carol, a newly turned Werewolf also has the unwanted ability of premonitions. Her recent visions show Werewolves bei

Wolf Fever is the latest in Terry Spear's werewolf series. I really enjoy this series because the author has a down to earth writing style that makes her characters feel very real and believable. I found the heroine fiery and fun to read and the hero stubborn and sexy.

Part of my fascination with this Terry Spear's wolf series is that she gets the technical parts down so that the story is incredible believable. You understand the transformation and the need for a pack. She does a wonderful job uniting the human condition with the animal instincts. I have really enjoyed the series so far, but this one wasn't my absolute favorite. That usually falls to the first in the series since there is always something special about your first time.

Carol Woods is a newly changed wolf with psychic abilities. Ryan McKinley an Alpha from another pack... finds Carol intriguing and is very much attracted to her. He doesn't really believe that she has learned about the lupus garou through a vision and he's out to prove it no matter how tantalizing he finds her.

Book #6 in series is one that feels more in tune with the type of werewolf stories I am used to from other series that have read. There is a lot of interaction between the main characters that truly make the reader sympathize with what they are dealing with, both in human and in wolf form.

Who wants sleep when they're in the middle of reading a story by Ms. Spear? Her writing is pure entertainment. (The Long and Short of It Reviews 20101119)

Spear uses great character development, hot passion, facets of many different controversies, and a mysterious twist to keep her readers entertained. (Coffee Time Romance 20101129)

A riveting and entertaining novel, WOLF FEVER is a lot of fun and makes one want to devour all of the rest of Terry Spear's books. (Fresh Fiction 20101130)

I will never get enough of Terry Spear’s werewolf series. As long as she keeps giving me alpha heroes with strong and stubborn heroines who stand up to them and an interesting and fast-paced storyline, you can bet I’ll keep reading.

The storyline in Wolf Fever is actually the best of the series so far. Not only is there mystery and danger for Silver Town’s wolves, we get a little bit of humor in this book, along with, of course, some steamy sexual tension.

Review courtesy of All Thngs Urban Fantasy.

As if living with precognitive abilities in an unbelieving world wasn't hard enough, Carol Woods now has to adapt to being a newly-turned werewolf. Even worse, her new pack doesn't trust her ability to stay in control (and stay hidden), so Carol must choose a mate or remain under the pack-leaders’ supervision. Females are rare, and she quickly goes from feeling like a wallflower to having all the attention she can handle.

My Synopsis: Carol is a recently turned lupus garou - who has another ability. She has visions of the future - usually signifying trouble. These visions have enabled her to keep from shifting for five months. She is troubled because one of her visions has shown her members of her new wolf family as wolves - unable to shift back. She is afraid that if she shifts, she will not be able to shift back again.

Since she is newly turned and unmated AND has not shifted - Darien, the pack leader - has mov

Carol Woods sees the future - and she's a werewolf. She's not a natural born werewolf - she was attacked 5 months ago and turned. Since then, she's been fighting the change (successfully so far) and Darien, her pack leader, is concerned. She's fighting the change because she's been having visions of some of the men in her pack shifting into wolves and not being able to shift back. In addition to trying to convince her to shift, Darien is also trying to convince her to take a mate, as females are ...more

This is the sixth book in Ms. Spear’s Heart of the Wolf series, and my first look at this wonderful world. Although I did not read any of the previous books, I found the story easy to jump into - never feeling lost or that I had missed out from skipping the earlier books. Although I may have gotten a deeper understanding of the pack life and rules from the previous books, Ms. Spear did a great job bringing me up to speed and I was able to enjoy.

I really enjoyed this book and have really gotten into the series. I'll admit a little disappointment when Carol wasn't gonna end up with Jake or Tom at first cause I'd love to see them find their mates and I kinda want one book where the hero can just be an alpha wolf without having to lead a pack! Saying that though I was soon team Ryan, especially as it was shown that Tom (the old romantic!) was waiting for his dream mate, believing that what happened to Darien would happen to him too, that h ...more

Wolf River is a paranormal story about werewolves good and bad. Carol Woods is a nurse who was turned 6 months prior and is not quite ready to come to terms with her being a werewolf. She has not let herself change into a werewolf but knows that she will have to eventually. She is currently staying with her red wolf pack leader who wants her to pick a mate. There is no one that she is willing to mate with until she meets Ryan Mckinley again. All Ryan wants to do is talk to Carol about her vision ...more

What more can I say about this author and her books? I love this series so much! With each book, the author brings new life to a commonly used theme of werewolves.

Carol is a newly changed werewolf who just happens to have psychic abilities. She used this ability to fight off the change of becoming a wolf. Carol hires Ryan to be her bodyguard since she was almost kidnapped. This sets up the scenes of future romance that sizzles!

This was an amazing book with a character that I actually really wanted to learn more about.

Poor Carol has been put through the wringer the last couple of months, not only does Carol have visions of future events she's also having difficulty accepting what she's become. With all of her problems I feel for her as the Alpha Darien is slowly trying to encourage her to take a mate and then with her visions of what's to come.

I also liked Ryan when he was involved previously in one of the other books.

"Wolf Fever" by Terry Spear. Book 6 in the Heart of the Wolf series. Book 2 in the Silver Town Wolf series (series within the Heart of the Wolf series).

Loved this book!

Carol, a newly turned werewolf, is struggling with her new identity. She refuses to shape-shift into a wolf. And to top it all off, she has visions of the future and no one is believing her; most especially Ryon. So when she has a vision of her pack leader, Darien, not being able to shift back to human, she is terrified that it wi

Good read, a bit different then the others so it didn't seem like a repeat except for the sex scenes. Ryan came back to town wanting to question Carol about her abilities, that's what he claimed. In the process the two found that they really liked one another. The reds came back bringing all kinds of problems with them. Once they found the source of the problem they were still stuck with finding out how to fix what had happened. The ending brought to mind how many people pass on STD's that they ...more

I really didn't have to many expectations going into this installment because I really wasn't that interested in reading about the two main characters of this book. I was quite surprise that I enjoyed this book as much as I did. I fell for Ryan, of course, and thought he was a fantastic alpha male. Carol was also a pretty good alpha female :) I really liked how this installment in the heart of the wolf series brought new elements. With Carol's psychic gifts, a lot of things happened d

This was a fun book to read, due to Carol and Ryan. Both of whom were very likable and you were rooting for them from the start.

Another fun part of the book was seeing the inner workings of the pack, the pack workings, and the mating rituals. The town as a whole was fun too. Every single person had an opinion on if Carol and Ryan should mate.

I thought the story line with the Red's wasn't all that interesting and was glad that that part wasn't as big of part of the book.

Interesting plot to the story and lots of action, romance and drama. Didn't realize this was part of a series didn't see the book was numbered in any way. The plot was great in this book, with multiple packs - some working togethers while others plotted revenge and to take over. The main characters has a ability to see glimpses of future events that have not yet come to pass. She's a very agressive character and independent which makes her a prime target for an alpha male leader. Enjoyed the boo ...more

This was the first book I have read in the Heart of the Wolf series. Though there are references made about events and characters from previous books you can still read this book and not feel completely lost. I loved the plot but felt like the virus took too long to effect the werewolves society until near the end of the book. Even when we knew it was going to happen in the beginning because of Carol's visions. Other then that I enjoyed this book and plan to read the series from the beginning.
