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...
"Do you know how to use a pool cue?" Paul asked her.
"To play pool or to fight?" she asked as Paul pulled the door open and Allan went in first. "Balls are my specialty."
SEAL WOLF HUNTING by Terry Spear was soooo good! It's a fast-paced, action-riddled, swoon-worthy read with engaging characters and the perfect mix of suspense and romance. If you love Terry's wolf tales, you definitely don't want to miss this one! I would be remiss if I didn't mention that smokin' hot cover that adorns this book!
While this is actually the third book in Terry's SEAL Wolf series, it can easily be enjoyed as a standalone since the romantic relationship and the development of the danger plot are fully contained within this story. Furthermore, that's true of any book in this series.
SEAL WOLF HUNTING is the story of Paul Cunningham, an ex-Navy Seal, who is now doing the same type of work he did as a Seal in the quasi-military, and Lori Greypaw, a sexy, unmated she-wolf.
I really liked both the hero and the heroine. They were each strong, genuine characters who were easy to relate to. Paul and Lori had history. They'd known each other since they were children. Lori's had a crush on Paul for years, but has made herself scarce when he's around as she didn't want to mate with Paul who was gone almost all the time with his globe-trotting military career.
Their pack had suffered an horrendous event years ago. Much of the pack lost their lives back then, including Paul's and Lori's parents. Paul's parents had been the pack leaders. As all the remaining men left to pursue military careers, the pack evolved to become a women-only group, of which Lori was one. Paul knows that the pack would be happy to accept his leadership, if he decided to settle down, but up till now, he'd not been motivated to do so.
As the story opens, Paul is home on a short leave after a particularly traumatic mission, when he discovers he's been placed on a charity auction block. Lori's match-making grandmother bids on him and wins his services. Paul's work assignment will be fixing up her lakeside cabin with Lori as his workmate. So, his childhood friend who is now a fetching she-wolf, and who has been avoiding him on his previous trips home, will be working alongside him. Wanna' bet there'll be some sparks?
Lori is no push-over. She wants a full-time, responsible mate, not one who is gone on dangerous adventures all the time. Will Paul decide he wants to settle down? If so, how can he convince Lori of his change of heart? Add in some poachers, troublesome renegade wolves, and oodles of sweet and heat for a totally engrossing read!
Following please find a few of my favorite quotes:
She took his hand, and he smiled down at her. "No mating yet?"
"It depends on how...persuasive you could be."
"Hot damn, woman. I can be persuasive."
He set Lori on the bed. "You were the only wolf that chased my tail around, trying to grab hold. No other cub would dare."
"Just the way I like you," she said when he was completely naked.
The narrator for the audible edition was Mackenzie Cartwright. She had a clear, pleasing voice and delivered a solid performance voicing both the female and male characters realistically. This is the first book I've listened to narrated by Ms. Cartwright but I would not hesitate to pick up another by her as she did an excellent job at bringing these characters to life. If you enjoy audios as I do, I feel that the audio enhanced my enjoyment as it allowed me to fully immerse seamlessly into the story.
Terry has a knack for writing fast-paced, sweet and sexy, highly entertaining reads. This one has a fair bit of suspense also and I actually forgot to breathe quite a few times listening to it. I like that I can count on Terry's books to never be too dark, but filled with excitement, danger, surprising twists, loads of thrills and panty-melting romance. Every one of her books are must-reads for me! I highly recommend SEAL WOLF HUNTING to anyone who enjoys fun, howling-delicious paranormal romances!
