Terry Spear continues her wolfish romances with another wild romp using Hunter's sister Meara and his SEAL team mate Finn.
Terry Spear has created a world that is familiar, yet different, in her bestselling paranormal romances where werewolf packs live unknowingly amongst us. The author has taken her werewolves from America to the Highlands of Scotland and now she's back with Hunter's pack in Oregon and telling the tale of his high-strung sister, an alpha in her own right, who seeks a mate for herself and seems to find about ten suitors too many.
A SEAL in Wolf's Clothing can be read alone but Terry Spear has been known to bring back recurring characters and knowing their back-story is invaluable. Past events and people are referenced and recognizing who they are and what they went through adds a certain familiarity to the story that I love. Specifically, A SEAL in Wolf's Clothing is book nine in the series, but Hunter's tale (and our first intro to Meara and Finn) occurs in book three To Tempt a Wolf.
Why Readers Will Love A SEAL in Wolf's Clothing
- The Humor - Terry Spear has a unique talent for infusing her novels with wit and humor that is all her own. Specific scenes could cause a rare laugh-out-loud moment and if they don't do that they will at least put a grin right on your face. I personally loved the scene in which Finn is checking Meara over for listening 'bugs' and the two begin playing out a love scene for anyone who 'may' be listening. There is also the fantastic scene in which Meara comes home to find a very unexpected naked SEAL in her bedroom, the reactions are priceless.
- Pack Loyalty - I am one of those readers who gets all gooey inside when a group of people come together for the sake of one. Werewolves, in most books, are usually like that but throw in a team of SEAL's and you have people literally willing to face a bullet for one another. That kind of loyalty always makes for some dramatic, heartfelt scenes, but in this crew that sort of connection also provides a strong base for a lot of the humorous moments.
- An Exciting Storyline - The book begins with Finn bugging Meara's place because an unknown assassin is after her brother's SEAL team. He seeks to protect her while Hunter is away, doing whatever it takes, even going so far as to pretend to be her lover. Hilarity ensues, which is expected when you put such larger than life characters together and high-action drama follows the two as they avoid killers and their own emotions.
- Love, Lust and Everything in Between - Meara and Finn are beautiful together; their chemistry is sizzling and their reactions to one another are instant and explosive. The automatic physical attraction between the two is intense right from the beginning and their animosity only a sign of their hidden feelings. The characters really play upon each others personality, bringing out the softer side of their hard-edged persona. The author writes sensual scenes for the characters to explore their emotions in, without taking them too far too soon, making that climactic moment all the more anticipated.
Overall, I liked the book and I love the series. Terry Spear has created a world that readers can follow along with as each new book is written. Favorite characters have cameos and new characters are introduced, which gives readers a long-lasting pleasure from the series that doesn't simply end when the last page of a book is turned.
