Review: Seduced by the Wolf by Terry Spear

The fifth in the series features heroine Cassie Roux, a biologist who has studied wolves for years, trying to prove to the world they're not evil predators. A red lupus garou (werewolf), who lost her pack and was raised by real wolves, she has dedicated her life to their preservation. Leidolf Wildhaven is a red lupus garou pack leader who has more troubles than he ever thought possible, what with running a pack, a ranch, and other businesses. When Cassie—a rare red female— is spotted in his territory, Leidolf figures he's found the answer to his pack's threatened extinction. Only the headstrong woman has other priorities…
My Review 

The fifth book in Heart Of The Wolf Series, isn't that bad, even thought in my personal opinion I will have prolonged Leidolf book. This wasn't what I espect to happen as Leidolf story. I imagine he was gonna be more stubborn and hard to conquer.

So we have Leidfol, an alpha male, with his messed up new pack. If you have read the previous books you know all the bad and sad history in Leidfold past. How he have struggle with his dad, his sisters, and even his urge to be a pack leader but not wanting to let go of his loner habits. In Legend of the White Wolf we see how he gets in everybody business and how he shows that even thought he is a pack leader, an alpha male, and have a very strong personality and hard temper, he is very understanding with other people situations and like to help. A true paranormal romance hero. But seriously in this book he was acting like a simple beta. I never got the impression he was an alpha leader for real. I think Spear got to caught up giving Cassie a very strong personality, that she totally forgot about him.

In other hand, Cassie was stubborn in her beliefs, and was very determined to have her way or no way. But seriously, did the girl stop to think things through? At least Spear knew where to drew the line. If she got a little more of stubbornness in Cassie it will had drive me nuts. Cassie is a Wolf-biologist. Being raised by a pack of real wolves after her family died, made her want to protect all wild life wolves out there. And it was a really good approach. Something different. Until now all the werewolf females born and raised that were in this series where wanna-be of something, or just didn't do a anything at all. 

The love story was really disappointing for me. I expected Leinfold to be more hard to get, since he have always shown how he wasn't going to mate with just anyone. And the whole thing about seeing her and just wanted to be with her without even knowing if she fit the standards he had put himself for finding a mate, kind of irritated me. And it even frustrated me the most when she got to be just what he was looking for. I mean if you want to present that when you fall in love you will forget about everything you were looking for, and you will love the person just how she/he is, keep it that way. Don't make it dull by giving the stubborn hero what he was looking for in the first place.

At least I like how Spear got the story running, it had mysteries all around it and it made you want to keep reading. Even when you wanted to scream for Leinfold to man up, and for Cassie to stop and think before she acted. It was easy to read, Spear is a very good writer when it comes to the romance parts, and just how she doesn't waste time describing things that doesn't matter have made me keep reading this series. I will have to be honest and tell one of my favorites characters of this book (and which I will like to hear more about) was Evan and Alice, both teen werewolf, but Spear gave them just the perfect personalities. I will like to see if they show up in a further book.

This book was better organize as a pack, even thought this was a pack that was in healing progress; thanks of all the messed up shit the former alpha had done; they acted as a true werewolf pack should act. And that was a mayor thumbs up for this book.

I have my hopes up for the next one. It looks this series is one of those that gets better book by book and not like others who start good and finish with rubbish.
