Paranormal Romance - Werewolves
May 3rd 2016
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?

Alpha Wolf Need Not Apply is book nineteen in the Heart of the Wolf series by Terry Spears. This story takes us back to Silvertown and the Silver Pack Wolves that live their as well as introducing us to a new pack.
Heart of the Wolf is one of my favorite series to read and re-visit. The best thing is each book can stand-a-lone, so you can just pick one up and go. They are all sweet romances with a little suspense or mystery added in. The wolves are all different in personality, color, and packs and each couple brings something new and entertaining of their own to the story.
Eric Silver, the diligent park ranger is determined to hunt down the shifters planting cannabis in his forest.
Pepper Grayling, leader of her pack is determined to not let an Alpha male wolf take over her territory and pack.
I liked Pepper as an Alpha who could run her pack and stand up for herself. I also liked Eric. Both these two have a past and neither are looking for new mates, but one chance meeting changes things and a sweet slow burning courtship begins. What I loved the most is Eric. He maybe an Alpha, but he isn’t afraid to step back and let Pepper lead. We are also treated to a little action. For fans of this series you might enjoy how Ms. Spear weaves many past characters back into Eric and Pepper’s story.
The one thing I didn’t like was Pepper’s final reversal on her feelings. This change of heart was so sudden. It just seemed out of place, especially with how slow the courtship/romance was blooming.
As with all series, some books are better than others and Alpha Wolf Need Not Apply is one I would recommend trying out. It was a delightful addition to this series.
