Book Description:Legend of the White Wolf is the fourth book in Terry Spear's engaging werewolf series of paranormal romance thrillers. New to the series, I found the opening prologue and story had me hooked right from the first few pages with action and suspense. The main characters, Cameron and Faith, each visiting Maine on their own personal business, cross paths early in the beginning, The initial encounter that introduces them to one another is funny and playful and both are very likable. That initial spark and the chemistry that develops as the story evolves evoked a strong sense of joie de vivre.
In this fourth in Spear's werewolf series, Private Eye Cameron MacPherson and forensic scientist Faith O'Malley are both on quests that lead them into the world of magical wolves, mystery and murder.
Cameron arrives in wintry Maine to search for his partners in his P.I. business who are late returning from a hunting trip, and runs into Faith, there to locate her ex-boyfriend who stole her father’s research. But Cameron and Faith instantly are attracted to one another and keeping their business on a strictly professional level doesn't have a snowball's chance of succeeding in a toasty fire-warmed cabin, the couple snowbound and the setting perfect for an unplanned tryst.
Together, the two tumble into an icy world of mayhem where myth, legend, and reality merge, changing their lives forever.
The author keeps her supernatural world focused on just werewolves, world-building that is nicely uncomplicated and all the more powerful for it. Grounded in real-world wolf behaviour and a touch of the magical, the werewolves here are captivating. Cameron and Faith's adventures lead them into the heart of this supernatural world with consequences that bond them and change their lives.
Containing dog-sled and snowmobile chases in the wilderness, "wolf attacks", kidnappings and more, Legend of the White Wolf is very much a page-turner and a curl-up-on-your-couch read. Romance readers will love Cameron and Faith's story and the many surprises it delivers. The romance and suspenseful action are deftly blended. I would love to read a follow-up story centred on this couple. Legend of the White Wolf can be read with no previous exposure to the series.
Terry Spear has two more books in the series scheduled for release this year including Seduced by the Wolf and Wolf Fever. I'm looking forward to picking up the one's I've missed!
