Me & Fabio!!!

Just got back from Romantic Times Magazine's Booklover Convention in Pittsburgh. It was a crazy week, but the highlight for me was definitely meeting the romance cover model icon...


Fabio might be pushing fifty (truth be told, I'm not so far off myself) but he is still hot, hot, hot! His Italian accent is to die for! And he's very gracious, too.

All the best!

Fantastic werewolf novel is released!

I have to tell you all about a great werewolf novel that was released just the other day. I had the pleasure of reading Terry Spear's Heart of the Wolf pre-publication, and it's a great book for lovers of real wolves, werewolves, mystery, and suspense. As I wolf lover, what I enjoyed most about Terry's book is how she portrayed the intricate politics of werewolf society, which is based on the pack behavior of real wolves. And the werewolf hero is hot!

Heart of the Wolf by Terry Spear
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca
ISBN: 9781402211577

While searching for clues of a lupus garou who is killing women in the rainy Portland suburbs, Bella Wilder becomes the hunted. She had run away from the gray pack who had taken her in when she was she young. And she will do so again before the brutish pack leader can have her.

Devlyn Greystoke has a mission—return Bella to the gray pack for safekeeping before she exposes their kind and gets herself killed. But little red wolves are in short supply and high demand and Bella’s determined to be the bait to flush out the killer. Keeping her out of danger is only half the trouble Devlyn encounters as his compulsion to make her his mate grows and she fights being his, fearful the pack leader will kill him.

Volan Smith, the gray alpha leader, claimed Bella when she was young. Now that he has located her, he wants Bella back. And he will stop at nothing to have her.

Publisher's Weekly says: The vulpine couple's chemistry crackles off the page, but the real strength of the book lies in Spear's depiction of pack power dynamics, as well as in the details of human−wolf interaction. Her wolf world feels at once palpable and even plausible.

4 Stars HOT from Romantic Times Magazine~~A solidly crafted werewolf story, this tale centers on pack problems in a refreshingly straightforward way. The characters are well drawn and believable, which makes the contemporary plotline of this story of love and life among the lupus garou seem, well, realistic.

5 Angels and Recommended Read from Fallen Angels Reviews
Simply Romance Reviews GRADE: A~~Heart of the Wolf is an outstanding read!
