GUEST BLOG: TERRY SPEAR

I LOVE Writing Paranormal Romance
by
Terry Spear


Why?

There’s something superhuman sexy about an alpha male who’s all wolf, or vampire, or has some other unusual ability that is other than normal, which is PARA normal. Anyone can meet the average Joe and be satisfied, but when he’s got some other talents, ooh la la!

Life can be just plain boring, don’t you agree? Work, school, life in general. Same old routine. But what if one day you were hiking through the lush green woods, the summer’s breeze tugging at your hair, the sound of water trickling over moss-covered stones in a creek somewhere nearby and found yourself eye to eye with a wolf? And he shifted and now you’re gazing at a hot and hunky naked guy?

Oh, sure, you might be terrified out of your skin, but wouldn’t you see him differently than if he just was a wolf…or a naked human, not a shifter?

The combination is intriguing, don’t you think? Either would liven up a hike in the woods. But the combination gives you much more pause, doesn’t it?

That the notion an urban fantasy legend could be real? That he might even be interested in…you?

Think of it this way. A wolf takes a mate for life. The man doesn’t, not necessarily. If he’s one of the good guys and you’re lucky, yes. But if not… But here comes a man who’s all wolf, and if you’re the one for him, it’s forever and ever! Can’t beat that!

Okay, so you’re not yet convinced? If you saw a wolf staring you down on a trek through the woods, that might be scary. They don’t often attack humans though. Wild cats are much more to do so. Yet still, the wolf’s a predator and doesn’t think like a human does—eat human, get in trouble with more humans. So coming across the path of a wolf on a hike could scare a few years off your life.

If a naked man crosses your path, you would probably figure he’s got serious issues. Unstable, really scary. He might not think like a normal man either. Not in a paranormal sense, but more of a dangerous sense—kill human, won’t get caught. But then we’re back to the shifter. He’s got the instincts of the wolf, but the thought processes of a man, and what you have to be wondering in this whole hiking-in-the-woods-and-stumble-across-a-wolf-shifter scenario is why he shifted in front of you.

You see, werewolves don’t reveal themselves to just anybody. If they did, they’d be found out and that wouldn’t be good for their kind. Which means he either has to kill you or turn you.

No werewolf in his right mind would purposefully shift in front of a female hiker unless…he’s intrigued. Now, this can be a good thing. If you’re intrigued back. If not…well, it’s time to be part of the PARA normal community, and get used to it. Because with a shifter mate, you get a pack, family, loyalty, protectiveness, and a really hot guy, of the paranormal variety. No more walks in the woods alone. You’ve got a mate for company. And he’s sticking with you for the very long run.

So what’s wrong with that?

And when the shifter looks like Finn Emerson and he’s a SEAL on top of that, well what could be more delicious than that?

I’m all ready to go hiking. What about you???

I LOVE writing paranormal romance.

A SEAL IN WOLF’S CLOTHING BY TERRY SPEAR – IN STORES MARCH 2012

Her instincts tell her he's dangerous...

While her overprotective brother's away, Meara Greymere's planning to play—and it wouldn't hurt to find herself a mate in the process. The last thing she needs is one of his SEAL buddies spoiling her fun, even if the guy is the hottest one she's ever seen...

His powers of persuasion are impossible to resist...

Finn Emerson is a battle-hardened Navy SEAL and alpha wolf. He's a little overqualified for baby-sitting, but feisty Meara is attracting trouble like a magnet...

As the only responsible alpha male in the vicinity, Finn is going to have to protect this intriguing woman from a horde of questionable men, and definitely from himself...

I think if I came across a wolf shifter in the woods, who just happened to be as cute as most of your men are. And if he's maybe wearing a kilt. I'd know I just won the Lottery. No doubt about it.

You can count me to go on that hike! I would be intrigued to find a werewolf shifter, though I wouldn't expect to encounter one. I would feel special if he revealed himself to me and feel lucky indeed to know he mates for life. Pretty romantic.

You are so much fun, Terry! :)

I've always loved a man in uniforms. But it's even better when I can combine my alpha male into a shifter with an attitude. The adventures he goes on, his arrogant, and being insufferable but loveable at the same time. That is the combination of my dream man :-) Thanks Terry for writing such great books. *HUGS*

LOL, Donna! Never thought of it like that, but I'd definitely feel the same way!

I so agree, Na! I like the way you think!!!

Phyllis, so are you! I'm so ready. Oregon has quite a few of them, truly. And Maine has some, that I know of. I think a few are in Texas, and definitely Colorado. We just need to plan some hikes!

Oh yeah, Jen, I sooo agree! A hunk of burning wolf love in or out of a uniform! Or...kilt. Remember the kilts too....

Yum!

Vonda Sinclair said...

Great post, Terry! I'd love to find a wolf shifter in the woods. If he's either naked or wearing only a kilt, so much the better! And I'd definitely want him to look like hot Finn. :)

Terry Spear said...

Thanks so much, Vonda! Sounds like a good deal! Muscles, stamina, absolutely! :)

A mate for life means no more ALONE walks in the woods? YUCK. There is such a thing as TOO much togetherness. Although I like the idea of meeting a hottie in the woods--in his human form. I would not care for meeting a wolf in the woods.
