    My Review:
    Cassie Roux, a wolf biologist, has dedicated her life to the protection of wolves in the wild. Her current focus is the mission to rescue a she-wolf and her newborn cubs. Taking her focus away from her rescue mission is Leidolf Wildhaven, the pack leader desperate to make her his mate, as well as rogue wolves causing havoc and zoo authorities with an eye for the local wolf population.

    Cassie was an interesting heroine. Interesting as in she annoyed me quite a bit but yet I still liked her. She was so stubborn and single-minded. Every time I thought she got close to Leidolf, she scampered away. She always managed to run away and get herself, and Leidolf, in heaps of trouble. I do, however, find it strange that the characteristics that I find annoying in Cassie are characteristics that figure prominently in my own personality. It says something about me, doesn’t it? I loved Leidolf. He was the typical alpha. Intelligent, demanding, with quite a bit of machismo. I loved how he was so protective of Callie and his pack. He also had a scampy sense of humor that I loved..

    My favorite part was the depth that Spear goes into about wolf behavior and pack dynamics. Wolves are my favorite animals and I have always been a bit curious about them. Spear really went into great detail about wolves and their behavior.  Spear obviously did a great amount of research about wolves and it is very obvious in this book. Generally, the writing was very good. There were times, mainly during the sex scenes, where I felt it got a smidge repetitive but generally it was not a problem and I found Spear’s writing style to be quite pleasant and engaging.

    As soon as I finished this book, I quickly went out and bought the earlier books in the series. Seduced by the Wolf was a great read and I am looking forward to the rest of the series.

    1. Grace, I'm thrilled you loved the book, so much so that you wanted to read the rest of the series! And more to come!!! That is always an author's greatest hope! This story was based on a case of a real wolf biologist finding a she-wolf and pups alone, trying to keep them alive after her mate was killed. And it had a happily ever after! It so touched me, I had to write the she-wolf's story in Seduced by the Wolf. I've also shared pictures of wolves on my blog, and an announcement of new wolf pups located in Oregon, if you want to check the stories out! :)
