Seduced by the Wolf (Heart of the Wolf #5)
Fascinating aspects of real-life wolf behavior based on extensive research on how wolves live in the wild make Terry Spear's werewolf paranormal series stand out and attract a growing audience. 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...more
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 ...more
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

This book could have been better - I think. I could see that the author made efforts to do research about red wolves. There was at least one particular scene when Cassie and Leidolf played t ...more
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 ...more

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. ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more

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.
Now Leildolf, altho ...more
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 ...more
