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.

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

Wolf Fever by Terry Spear
Paranormal Romance –Dec. 7th, 2010
4 ½ stars
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.

Carol's history has been troubled. When she was a child she had a freak accident and now she sometimes sees glimpses of the future. Although she has been ostrac

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.

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.

Wolf Fever is action-packed and sizzling hot. It's no surprise that I loved this book. Terry Spear writes great alpha males. They are really hard to resist, and they keep you turning to th
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.

I thought the romance plot felt very agreeable as Carol did fit with Ryan the best and the tension caused by the viral outbreak truly brought home just how vulnerable the pack members were to outside manipulat

3 stars.

I found this one a bit disappointing and slow going. The plot was interesting but there were too many repetitive conversations. I kept hoping things would speed up and we can see more action. Then, it was all over via a couple of phone calls and conversation and we didn't even get to read what happened first hand!!

Overall pleasantly surprised I ended up liking this book. It took me a while to get into the book because the main character Carol was protected by males not allowing her to live without being monitored. As I got more into the meat of the book things started to get better and better. A few graphic images in my head and some action made for an exciting second half. Also, interesting to read during a pandemic.

Great 2nd wolf book!

I read a review that said this one had nothing to do with the 1st...wrong! It definitely is a stand alone story, but happily also has characters from the 1st book. It just expands & includes new ones, but still a great pack! Loved it!

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.

I like the fact that our hero, Ryan, has
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.

As an adult turned werewolf,

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.
