Wolf shifter and park ranger Eric Silver is committed to his job policing spectacular San Isabel National Forest, and he's hot on the scent of some mysterious wolves who are up to no good. When Eric's investigation leads him to cross paths with forester Pepper Grayling, he's fascinated to learn this she-wolf is her pack's leader -- strong, independent, and definitely not looking for a mate.
With unknown dangers on the prowl, Pepper is tempted to give in to her attraction to Eric and align her pack with his. But Pepper's been pursued by many alpha males--all out to take over her pack and gain her hard-won territory--and Eric is a born leader. How does Eric earn the trust of a she-wolf who's been betrayed so often in the past?

The always fun and sweet world of Terry Spears's wolves has expanded with an all new pack coming on the scene and bringing with them their very own issues, troubles, and chances for love. I have been a fan of this series from the very beginning and have enjoyed the journey, with all its highs and lows, but I’m thrilled to say Eric and Pepper’s story was a high point. I love the Silver pack and they are always interesting to watch fall in love. There has never been a more alpha family of male wolves and seeing them fall in love and find their mates is always a good time. Eric is a great hero to watch work his magic. He is humble, sweet, sexy and fun while still being alpha enough to keep a woman from thinking she has to take care of everything herself. He’s a great brother and cousin and has given up a lot to keep his family and pack safe over the years so when he meets Pepper you are rooting for him to have his HEA from the very beginning. Seeing him melding with Pepper’s pack and find his place in her life was unexpected even though he is more laid back than some alpha wolves, but he truly treats pepper as a partner and sometimes even lets her lead. Pepper has a huge chip on her shoulder when it comes to alpha wolves, but Eric is the perfect match for her, even though she’s the only one unable to realize that fact. She is a warrior to the core, protecting her little pack from outside invaders and finding a way to give them all the love and support they could ever need. She is sweet and sensual and, when she allows herself to fall for Eric, shows the fun side of her wolf nature as well. These two were made for each other from the beginning, they just needed to get over their personal fears and find a way to come together, and luckily the reader gets to come along on their wild ride to find love. Passion is certainly not something lacking for these two alpha wolves and as they navigate the waters of their possible relationship that passion sometimes burns right off the pages. I am looking forward to meeting more of the Silver and Grayling Packs and hope they are prominent in future stories. If you’re looking for a fun story about sexy wolf shifters and the crazy antics they sometimes find themselves up to, then I highly recommend the Heart of the Wolf series by Terry Spear. And of course her Heart of the Jaguar series is just as good for those of you that are cat people. ;)
