“This is a cute holiday read to get you in the mood for Christmas.”
~ Under the Covers

DREAMING OF A WHITE WOLF CHRISTMAS is the first book I’ve tried by Terry Spear. When I read the blurb, it immediately caught my attention because of its cuteness. Also, I’m a real sucker for holiday reads so I was very much looking forward to trying out this author.

This book is the first installment in the White Wolf series. I believe it’s a spin off of her Heart of the Wolf series. It’s all about how an author goes camping and is bitten by a white puppy, which she later turns out to be a wolf. Suddenly, she is a wolf shifter herself and now she had a try and deal with that while still trying to making her book deadline.

The first thing I have to say about this book is the fact that everything happens too quickly. All the major setup happens within the first chapter and for me who is someone pretty new to this author and series, it felt too rushed. I honestly had no idea if shifters in this world were part of the general population or if they were kept secret still since there was no explanation. I thought that since this is the first book in a series, that would be explained clearer, but it wasn’t.

The book has an overall light tone, which I like. But it tends to kind of only touch upon things that I would consider to be important. For example, the introduction of the heroine and hero seemed very rushed. I don’t feel as if I got a chance to really grasp their character before the plot started going.

Needless to say, it’s probably best if you read the other books connected to this series because the worldbuilding isn’t explained clearly for new readers. I’m not sure that I’ll be continuing on with this series just yet. If I do, I think I would like to go back and read some of the older books first before jumping into this one. However, if you’ve followed through already, then this is a cute holiday read to get you in the mood for Christmas.

Love, love, love romance, the paranormal, hunky Highlanders with their delicious brogue and hot kilts, so Terry Spear writes about those hunky Highlanders both in medieval times and as wolves in contemporary times. Jaguar shifters too! And young adult urban fantasy. And romantic suspense.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

I find that things tend to go quickly in most of her books but I know that going in. Still, they’re pretty good for a quick read.

Yeah, the pacing is VERY fast. Next time I’ll know that.
