The first is of Lucifer--from Down Under! He's adorable and reminds me of a black cat I once owned and adored! He adopted my black standard poodle as his mother.
Thanks to Lisa for sharing her cat who is one of Santa's elves! Merry Christmas to Lisa from Australia!
I don't think Lucifer looks too happy here! :)
And here's one funny looking little bad-hair day black squirrel, sent to us by Donna from Minnesota! Some of us rarely see snow where we live, so this is always a treat to me! But these pictures are precious too!
Here is our squirrel, as we get to adopt him too! But Donna, he/she needs a name!
And here are some great reviews for Dreaming of the Wolf!

I received an ecopy of this book free of charge from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
I have to admit that I haven't read any other books in the Heart of the Wolf series, but I've heard really good things about it, so when I saw this book listed on NetGalley I decided to give it a try. I can honestly say that I now see why everyone loves this series!! And the best part is that this book can definitely stand on its own! Even without knowing what happens in the previous books of the series, Terry Spear lets you know what's what without making you feel like you are being dumped information.
From Goodreads: "Werewolf pack leader Jake Silver is an acclaimed photographer. He sees a beautiful woman at the art gallery where his photos are on display, and his intrigue turns into wolfish protectiveness. Alicia Greiston has never met anyone like Jake-he's sexy, alpha, and totally irresistible, and he calls to something primal in her soul."
Jake Silver goes to drop of some photographs he took at an art gallery in Breckenridge, Colorado, and he's planning a quick in and out so he can get back to his home in Silver City, where his pack is located. But when he sees a very attractive woman surreptitiously taking photos of a car's license plate on the same street, he's curious (and interested) enough to follow her into a restaurant. It turns out she's a bounty hunter named Alicia Greiston and she's bound and determined to take down a couple of mob guys by herself, to keep a promise she made to herself when her mother was murdered by these same men. Jake, being the sexy, fierce, alpha werewolf that he is, decides to stay in town to protect her, even though they can have no future because she's a human and werewolves are not allowed to have more than passing sex with humans. Therein lies the problem and you will have to read the book to find out how it is resolved because I'm not giving it away!! No, I mean it - don't even ask!
I thoroughly enjoyed my first foray into Terry Spear's writing! The sex scenes were hot, hot, HOT - but that wasn't all there was to the book by any means. The story was one that drew you in, and you really cared about all of the characters. I can tell you this for sure - I am definitely going to go back to the very beginning of this series and read the first seven books because if they are anywhere as good as this one was, I know I'm going to fall in love with Silver City and its very interesting citizens!
In summary, I highly recommend this book for paranormal lovers and werewolf lovers alike!!
MoonGlitter rated it First of all I just have to say that this is my first Terry Spears book. I know, it's a bit strange that I would start with book #8 in a series. I am happy to say that these books do NOT need to be read in order :) They are great stand alone books!
Dreaming of the Wolf was a fantastic read!! Alicia Greiston is a bounty hunter who wants to make sure justice is served and her mothers murderers are put behind bars for good! While she realizes that she is dealing with members of the mob, she just doesn't realize just how far in over her head she is!
Jake Silver is a true alpha male werewolf! He has never been interested in finding himself tied down to a mate....until he spots Alicia. But she's a human and he realizes that the cards are stacked against him. Right away she intrigues him. He feels the need to know her business. He wants to protect her and keep her close.
The plot moved along at a great pace. I found myself up late at night and into the early morning hours devouring this book! The characters are interesting and easy to relate to. The romance is amazing and sensual. If you love werewolves, you are sure to love Dreaming of the Wolf! I will be reading more of Terry Spears books!! I highly recommend them!!
My rating: 5 stars!

Melissa rated it What an amazing and exciting read this was. I could not stop reading this eighth installment of Terry Spear's Werewolf series. The plot and the pace flowed so well. The action and suspenseful romance kept me turning pages. The characters were like old friends. Very realistic and likeable. You can easily find yourself wrapped up in them. I would completely recommend this book to any readers looking for a great read.
My Rating: 5 Stars.

First off let me just say, look at that beautiful, sexy cover for "Dreaming of the Wolf". I love it!!!! You know to not ever judge a book by it's cover, but this one, I have to say is one reason I adore this book. It seems every book's cover for the Heart of the Wolf Series gets better and better. I have to say also, is the model on the cover fits Jake's description very perfectly and I'm jealous now of Alicia getting Jake in the book. She's one lucky Gal. If you have never read the Heart of the Wolf Series, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! Terry Spear writes her wolf series, like they are actual wolves in the wild, not like the movie "The Wolfman." This is one main reason why I adore this series and I can't get enough of the Sexy Alpha Males she comes up with. Now in "Dreaming of the Wolf", we are going back to Silver Town to finally get Jake his Mate. I love Jake not only for his looks, but the Man is a Photographer. He loves taking photos of Wildflowers. I would love to meet a Man who adores taking photos of beautiful things like flowers. I love taking photos myself, and flowers have been my favorite thing to photography since I took of Photography in 2006. The minute I started reading about Jake, I fell head over heels for him. Jake is definitely a very over-protective Alpha Male too, which who wouldn't want this Man watching over them? He finds his perfect Mate while trying to put his photos in a Art Gallery. He comes across Alicia...well, he actually kind of stalks her. Although, I have to say again, she's one lucky gal to have such a sexy hunk stalk her. Jake doesn't realize he's about to meet Alicia who is in kind of bind with the Mob. She is a Bounty Hunter and she's trying to put her Mom's killers behind bars where they belong. She has no idea she's about to fall into the Supernatural world that she never thought could exist and she is also about to meet the One Man who will change her luck on Love and Marriage. Let's just say, that Alicia gets lucky even in the beginning of the book and I loved the Woods Scene. =) From beginning to end, I had a hard time putting down this book. I love how Terry Spear, always makes the story so interesting. This book took you into the world of Mobsters and what would happen if you threw in Werewolves in the mix. She also brings back old characters from previous books. I love getting a look at Lelandi's pregnancy more and having Darrien again. Yum!!! I also loved the ending the most. Who would thought, a Wedding would happen at Silver Town...but when I woman puts her mind into something, who can say No to Lovely Lelandi. "Dreaming of the Wolf" has become one of my FAVE books I've read in 2011 and I definitely look forward to the next book in the series coming out next year. The best part is I got a sneak peek of "A Seal in Wolf's Clothing" at the end of "Dreaming of the Wolf". I'm looking forward to reading about Meara and Finn Emerson. Thank you again, Terry Spear for my Alpha Male Fix again this year. I look forward to the next books in the series and again, you have a FAN for life!!! I recommend this to any reader out there that has an obsession with Sexy Alpha Males and Daring Heroines. You will definitely enjoy this book and all the other books in the Series.
And The Ancient Fae is NOW Available on B&N!
Princess Ritasia misses the adventure of getting her brother and cousins out of trouble, but when the hawk fae king arrives to court her, she becomes involved in trouble nothing like she's ever faced before.
The hawk fae king, Tiernan, must find a bride, but being a tyrant king, or so his people believe, he must find a woman who would help him to change his people's view of how he and his queen shall rule.
Princess Ritasia isn't anything like what he'd envision his queen would be like. Rough and tumble, unafraid of danger, and speaking her mind, the lady might just be the one for him.
The princess believes the king is a tyrant, at least at times. But she discovers he's not all that he seems, and she wants to learn even more.
The problem is that Ritasia stumbles across an ancient queen's magical artifact and nothing will ever be the same between her people, his, and what is dug up at the ancient fae dig site.
