Review: SEAL Wolf Hunting  (Heart of the Wolf #16) by Terry Spear

Paul Cunningham is one of the only bachelors left on the SEAL wolf team, and he's less than thrilled to hear he's been volunteered for a local charity bachelor auction.

Lori Greypaw suspected that her grandmother would use the auction as an opportunity to fix her up. So she's not surprised when she "buys" Paul to help Lori renovate her mountain cabin for a week. Lori's had a crush on the sexy SEAL wolf for years, but he proves to be handy with more than a hammer when two fugitives come knocking and he'll do anything to protect the woman he's falling for...

I just love wolf shifters and add that they are SEALs! Squeeeee! Paul Cunningham, all kinds of hotness, has an exciting job and he loves travelling to rescue people that are in some serious predicaments. He thrives on it-the adrenaline rush, the sense of family with his SEALs-loves the adventure of it all. After returning home from his last mission, that did not go as well as planned, Paul and his best friend Allen, intend to relish their much needed vacation. What they didn’t expect is to be auctioned off as part of a honey-do (work around the house) bachelor auction.

Lori Greypaw, who has known Paul for years, decides its time to stop hiding from him. She’s part of their own women’s pack but would love to change that. Lori tried to stay away every time Paul was in town mostly because it was so hard when he left. She didn’t want to be left behind just waiting for him to return and hope at least it’s in one piece!

All the women in the pack would like Paul to step up and assume the alpha pack leader role. Lori would also like to be his mate. They have always had a special bond but she doesn’t want to push him if he is not ready or worse yet, doesn’t want her.

After the auction puts Paul in close quarters with Lori to fix up the cabin, both can feel the pull. Spending time with her, Paul is seeing his home in a whole new light. He is realizing Lori is everything to him and when he has been gone, leaving her and the rest the women to fend for themselves, he’s left them vulnerable. These women are his family. He doesn’t want to see something happen to any of them so he must make a few decisions.

The story zinged right along and I loved it! There were a lot of side plots that had some twists and turns that kept you reading on. All of the characters were interesting in their own right and although I haven’t read the other fifteen books in Terry Spear’s Heart of the Wolf series, I never felt left out. This story held its own and I would highly recommend reading it!

What’s your favorite thing about being a wolf-shifter? Being in charge of a wolf pack with a she-wolf leader at my side. Who else can say they are in charge of a wolf pack, but a wolf? Sure, troubles arise that have to be dealt with, but being the leader of the pack? Priceless.

An Excerpt:

Paul watched Lori as she looked toward the west, her mouth still curved in a tantalizing smile. “Sunset’s gone. Do you want to keep me company while I make the jam for tomorrow?”

He sure did and joined Lori in the kitchen, where she began washing her bucket of berries. He followed her lead and washed his. Then she put them all in a big saucepan and added sugar in the same quantity as the huckleberries. After that, she dissolved pectin and added it to the fruit and sugar mixture.

“Do you want me to break up the berries more? Less?” She paused in stirring them and crushing some to make the mixture more jelly-like.

He peered over her shoulder, breathing in the sweet berry-and-sugar mixture and Lori’s sweet she-wolf scent. “Smells great. Looks great.” He wasn’t just talking about the jam. “Just right.” He hadn’t eaten homemade jelly in eons, so this was really a special treat. He remembered fondly eating jam on bread before it had even cooled all the way when his mother made it.

Lori looked up at him and smiled a little. He wasn’t moving out of her space, just smiling down at her, his mouth close to hers. Hell, he’d never enjoyed watching someone make jam as much as he did Lori. He was ready to kiss her again. She shook her head and turned to finish cooking the jam. He only let her get away with avoiding any further entanglement because he didn’t want to make her burn the jam. Otherwise, he would have kissed her.

Lori began to transfer the jam into jars and seal them. She’d let the jars cool down so

she and Paul could have some jam tomorrow.

“See? I knew what you’d like for breakfast. Waffles, pancakes, or French toast with fresh huckleberry jam.” She licked some of the jam off the spoon she’d used to stir it.

The way her tongue licked the spoon made him think of tangling his tongue with hers again.

“Or honey. Don’t forget how much I like honey,” he said. He let his gaze switch again from the spoon to her lips and thought about how much he’d enjoyed licking the honey off them.

She chuckled.

Unable to stop himself and hoping Lori was of a like mind, he took the spoon from her and set it in the empty saucepan. Then he pulled her into his arms and kissed her again, tasting the sugary berries on her lips and tongue as she wrapped her arms around his neck and gave in to the kiss.

“I couldn’t wait for breakfast.”
