The fifth in the series features heroine Cassie Roux, a biologist who has studied wolves for years, trying to prove to the world they're not evil predators. A red lupus garou (werew

Leidolf Wildhaven is the leader of a new pack that was abused by it's former Alpha. Between protecting the pack and running his ranch he doesn't have time for much else. But when Cassie Roux, a biologist that specializes in wolves comes to town he's absolutely captivated by her.

Terry Spear has given us another great werewolf story. I jumped into the middle of this series earlier this year when I read Legend of the White Wolf. I fell in love with the characters almost right away. Leidolf Wildhave

This is a pretty solid entry in the werewolf genre. I like TS's werewolf world. This is the second or third one I've read and the world building is staying pretty consistent. I few things happen quicker than they really might in real life but it's pretty minimal. For example in this one near the end, Leidolf tells a man who works for the zoo that he's been having problems with cougar killing his cattle and a couple of hours later the zoo guy tells him he's captured her and her cubs. That just se ...more

1.5 - 2 stars

Pros: good research and decent premise
Cons: lots of tell, not enough show; poor world-building; poor characterization; ineffective writing style; not a good stand-alone; boring; unexciting sex scenes; unbelievable emotional connection between main characters

I enjoyed finally being able to read Leidolf's story. I think the pack dynamic is a bit different than any of the earlier books and that made it interesting. I also liked the strong female personality that we found in Cassie. I wish we'd gotten a bit more into the Aimee and Carver story line, but other than that I was satisfied with the story and the conclusions. I look forward to more from this series.

Ever have one of those days when bad luck seems to follow you around?

Well, that seems to be the case for Oregon rancher Leidolf Wildhaven in author Terry Spear’s latest release, SEDUCED BY A WOLF. Leidolf is terrible at managing the finances of his ranch and he had his hands full with several abused youths he’s taken in. The fact that he has also just taken over as Alpha leader of the wayward pack of lupus garou (werewolf) just adds to his problems.

The wolf biologist Cassie Roux shows up to lect
Seduced by the Wolf was the best of Spears' werewolves so far, but then again I was waiting for Leidolf to get his book (he's made short appearances in several of the others)

When wolf biologist Cassie Roux comes town to give a lecture, pack alpha Leidolf finds himself captivated by the enticing redhead. But since she's only human, she's not mate material. But Cassie's actually hiding a lot, and discovering that there are shifter's in town is going to make her job more difficult and her attractio

SPOILER. Disjointed. You know it's not gonna be good when the story is so tedious, you start skimming ahead in the book. I've only read 25% but I can't make myself read another page.

Started out great with fun premise...wolf researcher catches attention of local wolf pack leader. But then she's trying to get away from him because she doesn't want him to know her secret, but she just happens to run into him forrest, and then her long lost cousin is trying to track her, and a fellow wolf researcher

I'm changing my bookshelf from "currently reading" back to "to-read" because I'm so confused by this story. I didn't realize it was number five in the series before I started it, so maybe that's the problem. I hope I just need to read the others first to make sense of this one. It might be good, once I can sort through just who all the different characters are and what motivates them. I'll try later. My head can't take it now.

Normally I find this authors books to be a solid good read, but this one was just lacking for me. I think part of that was the whole thing with Cassie and Leidolf, they weren't all that interesting. I found that the pack was much more fun and entertaining. They all seemed like quirky characters, that all of these people make up a pack of misfits. I am hoping the next book is better.
I enjoyed this story but read it out of order in the series. This gave me some difficulties getting the lay of the land but I was able to piece it together pretty well. I really liked both MC's from the beginning as well as secondary pack characters. The heat was slow-building and pace was perfect. There were lots of action-y parts and mini-dramas to keep things moving along. I thought that, unlike so many romances, the reasons for Cassie's reluctance to become involved with Leidolf were valid, ...more

Enjoyed Leidolf but Cassie was getting on my last nerve with all the back and forth putting everyone at risk. I thought they knew who was a royal without being told but I guess not. I thought Leidolf was supposed to have some type of special powers or something, I was hoping that we'd find out in his story but...The deal with him proving himself I didn't see it, the ending seemed rushed and made him seem desperate. Seems like he has a bunch of royals in his pack but it took away from the "royal" ...more
For this outing wolf biologist Cassie Roux meanders into town to talk to the locals about living with and among wolves. She is uniquely qualified because she is a rare royal red lupus garou but disguises her scent and tamps down her tendencies because it's easier for her to do so. But Leidolf, alpha pack leader of the red lupus garou and a royal himself, is attracted despite Cassie's clever disguise and is looking for a mate. I liked this installment because finally Leidolf was front and center ...more

Another book down in this Heart of the Wolf series. I feel as though Terry Spear does a great job in capturing an audience into the world of these wolves. The books are filled with pages, but makes for a lightweight read. This installment was pretty good and I did enjoy it, but I felt certain aspects of the books could have been better.

I've been wanting to read Leidolf's story for a while now because he tended to pop up in almost every book so far. So going into this book, I was really excited.

Somehow I missed reading this Terry Spear book back in August or even September. Shame on me, because it’s a terrific read. Ms. Spear has definitely come into her own with this werewolf series of hers. She pulls you in immediately, pounds you with emotion and action until the very end, gives you characters to love, and a story to bite into (sorry, couldn’t resist that one!). If you haven’t read any of her werewolf books, pick one up soon. You’ll be chomping at the bit for the next one as soon as ...more

After the pack is killed by hunters, Cassie becomes a biologist. She dedicates her life to protecting wild wolfs and educating ranchers about the wolves.

Leidolf completely won me over in this book, we finally got to see the real him and not just the side he shows to other alpha's! Though like I said before he'd already grown on me the last two books as we seen other sides to him.
I have to say Cassie annoyed me a bit though. I liked her but she really did seem to put lupus wolves above her own kind like when she chose to stay with the wolf pups when she heard the shots instead of going to Leidolf's aid. I agree she shouldn't have to give up her
Not Feeling the Seduction
Wolf biologist Cassie Roux is passionate about wolf conservation and education. She studies wolves intently, gives speeches and lectures on pack social structure and ecological impact, and spends time with them in their natural habitat. Though considering Cassie is a rare, lone red lupus garou raised by a pack of full-blooded wolves after her family and pack were slaughtered by hunters, it's her natural habitat, too.

She's in Oregon to give a lecture in a small town two h

I didn't like it as much as the others but that's mostly due to the fact that I hated the main character Cassie. She's very selfish and self-centered. She lost her family when she was a teen so her general attitude towards anything and everything is TO HELL WITH EVERYTHING AND EVERYBODY. I'LL DO WHATEVER I DAMN WELL PLEASE, WHETHER THEY LIKE IT OR NOT. Such an attitude might be really admirable at certain times, but sometimes you just have to mind someone else, especially someone who cares for y ...more
The story was mostly enjoyable- Leidolf Wildhaven is the leader of a werewolf pack in Oregon, having taken control over from an abusive leader. He has his hands full with trying to manage the unruly behavior of some younger wolves as well as financial concerns about the ranch he runs. He is also ready to settle down and have some babies.
Cassie Roux is a wolf biologist, and a lone werewolf. She champions the cause of wolf conservation. When she comes to Oregon to teach the locals about wolves, s
Aww so glad that Leildolf got a book.

On the other hand I'm also a little bit annoyed that he got exactly what he wanted in a mate.

I loved that Cassie had lots of little secrets and wanted to do what she loved. I like that throughout the book she was able to stick to her guns in what she wanted, I also thought she was a little bit mixed in her personality and even though at times she was a very strong character I also liked that she was vulnerable in the idea of having a mate.

"Seduced by the Wolf" by Terry Spear. Book 5 of the Heart of the Wolf Series.

Really really enjoyed this book! Loved the playfulness between the two main characters, Cassie and Leidolf. Happy to see Leidolf get a happily-ever-after since he was introduced in the beginning of the series. I found myself laughing at times and then thinking "oh no!" at others.

Cassie is a werewolf who has been on her own, packless, for quite some time. She is definitely not looking for a mate. As a wolf bioligist, all

Okay this one was hard to get through for me. Majority of the book the characters spend way too much time with their inner thoughts & feelings, which led to very limited interactions with each other. Which made the story seem to drag on forever. Second: All the action was spent way too long in the woods and in wolf form. It felt unbalanced to me. If you are writing about wolves who happen to be human as well, wouldn't there be a more balanced scope of their wolf and human sides? At least tha ...more

I used to love cheesy werewolf romance novels in high school. Once I started college I stopped reading them because I had so much more to read for classes and I started reading other genres. So when I graduated on Saturday I decided while I have time I'd read a trashy book and have no responsibilities until the job search payed off. I think I used to like these types of books because I came from a really strict family where sex or talk of sex wasn't allowed and sneaking these books around to rea ...more

I love that we got tosee what he has been upto along with the new person her bit and changed, although I would have been running away just like how Cassie did.
