About the book:


Alicia Greiston is a no-nonsense bounty hunter determined to bring a ring of mobsters to justice. Her dogged pursuit of the crime family has forced her to avoid relationships— any man would only become a target for retribution. Luckily, Jake Silver is more than a man, and his instincts are telling him to stop at nothing to protect her.


However, the mob isn’t entirely human either, and soon Alicia must flee for her life. When Alicia and Jake’s passion begins to spill over into their dreams, Jake learns he will have to do more than defend her— he’ll have to show his mate the way of the wolf.

Dreaming of the Wolf is the 8th book in the Wolf series and there is a 9th scheduled to be released in March 2012 called A Seal in Wolf’s Clothing. Which I am dying to read because it sounds super good.

I am an absolute fan of Terry’s Wolf series of books. I can pretty much devour a book in a day if I am given the chance to sit and read for that long. Thankfully I got this book before my birthday and I thought that was a fantastic birthday present and the Sunday before my birthday was a me day and I made it a point that I was going to spend the day before my birthday reading and that this was the book I was going to read. I managed to finish it up in that day and refused to go to bed until I read it.

I loved this book. I think everyone I have spoke with lately I had to talk about this book and how you should it read. Even though its been a while since I read it I am still thinking about it.

I love that even though this is a series you can read them all as stand alones. So if you are looking for a great book to curl up with this holiday season or winter I have to suggest this one highly. I am sure you will love it just as much as me.

I am not sure what it is but I love Terry’s writing because she gives you details and descriptions that make it seem believable and that this story can actually happen. You can see all the research she has put into each of her books.

I fell in love with Jake and it was so nice to see that a good guy can win in love. I knew I was going to love Jake from the first moment I met him and I loved how it was Jake who was head over heels in love with Alicia and that he pursued her instead of the other way around.

Jake first spots Alicia when he is in Breckenridge, Colorado going to a art gallery to sell his photographs (which just happens to be closed at that very moment) when he spots Alicia taking pictures secretly of a licence plate. Not only has this action peaked his interest but also she has his attention.

He decides to follow her into the restaurant and at first he doesn’t see her so he sits down to order when he spots her. She doesn’t appear to notice him because she is too interested in watching two guys across the way from her. When she is threatened by a goon, Jake steps in and does what any person should do when a life is being threatened.

Jake finds out that Alicia is actually a bounty hunter and the two guys she is watching are mobsters and one is responsible for the murder of her mother and she is determined to bring justice.

I love how Alicia has had two failed marriages and has sworn of men and you can see the walls she has put up and that Jake isn’t coming off as a pushy guy and forcing is way he steps back and gradually you can see that even though they have fooled around she is actually starting to care about him and you want her to have that happy ending and find love.

But will she allow that to happen or is she just hell bent on having justice served no matter at what risk?

This is the other books in the series:

This is the 9th book coming out in March:

If you haven’t had the chance to read any of Terry’s books then I highly recommend you do because they are all fantastic and so worth it.
