Silence of the Wolf (Heart of the Wolf #13) by Terry Spear

Gray werewolf Tom Silver is determined to find the wolves who have been attacking local livestock. While tracking the pack through the Rockies, a blizzard forces him into a remote cabin where he hears a plane crash nearby.

When he discovers the sole survivor is a beautiful female werewolf/coyote shifter mix, bound as a prisoner, he knows it's his duty to hide her. Now, they are both at risk as a search ensues for the missing prisoner.

Will Tom be able to protect this beautiful stranger while tracking down the wolves responsible for terrorizing the local livestock?

If you've read any of Terry's Silver Town books, you already know that you need to read this one.  Once you fall in love with the town and it's people, you just have to keep going back.  Don't worry!  I know some series tend to go stale after awhile.  That is not the case here!  This is Tom's story and you must to read it!
I fell in love with Silver Town years ago when I first read Heart of the Wolf and I've been following along ever since.  She has an easy writing style that keeps you engrossed.  For me, it's about the characters.  Somehow, she creates bold 'people' that you just can't help but identify with and admire.  
In this book, we find more than one mystery going on.  Someone is attempting to kill Elizabeth.  We have a few possibilities and a lot of surrounding intrigue attached to that.  Not only that, wolves that don't leave a scent are causing trouble on some of the surrounding farms.  This is a big problem because the last thing a town of werewolves needs is to have huge farmers running around with guns wanting to shoot them, thinking they were mere trouble-making wolves.  It all culminates into some seriously action-packed scenes.  Of course, we also have a great deal of passion and romance as well as some steamy love scenes.  
Originally, what set Terry's werewolves apart from the others is that they tended to make werewolf jokes.  They watched werewolf movies and laughed and joked about them.  They liked reading sensationalized books about werewolves.  Basically, they had a great sense of humor about how us humans saw them.  Not only are they werewolves, but they're likable.  I was watching closely to see if this would be continued and I was thankful to see a few 'Big Bad Wolf' jokes tossed in along the way.  Yes, Terry, your werewolves are still likable...maybe even lovable.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
