Love Struck Over A Shifter: Welcome Terry Spear!!

Thank goodness it's Friday, TLN'ers!

Looking for a shifter to brighten day? The fabulous TERRY SPEAR is here to tell us about her new release, SAVAGE HUNGER.

I had the pleasure of meeting Terry in Anaheim this summer. It was definitely one of the highlights of my conference experience. I've loved Terry's writing since her very first book and I know you will, too!

Love Struck over a Shifter
by Terry Spear

Can you imagine what it would be like to find the man of your dreams and discover he’s got a mucho big secret?

Not a wife and kids hidden away. Not a secret undercover operative. Well, he could be that, but that’s not his BIGGEST secret.

What if he could change into a wolf??? Or a jaguar???

What if you were absolutely, deeply, and irrevocably fell in love with a shifter?

You do have choices. You can give him up.


You can convince him you know what he is and you want to be just like he is.

Doesn’t work?

You can see if someone else will change you.

Problem with this is that most will not be happy if someone else turns you. So you’re going to have to try harder to get him to bite you.

So here’s how you do it.

1.    Install a pet door for easy access.

2.    Make really great steak dinners. They love red meat.

3.    Take him on nice woodland walks in the moonlight. Only works if the shifter is a wolf and newly turned. Otherwise, he doesn’t necessarily have to shift.

4.    Take a trip to the jungle. Only works if the shifter is a cat. Wolves don’t exist in the jungle, so he and you would be out of your element down there if he’s not a big cat shifter.

5.    Have a swimming pool! Both love to swim.

6.    Be sure to show off your playful side. They love to wrestle, run, tackle and…well here it goes…bite.

And there you’ve got it! You’re now officially a shifter. Enjoy! Sometimes it can be a nuisance when you have to shift and least expect it. But your shifter mate will help you get through it.

Expect to see him naked a lot. It goes with shifting, and the fact he likes to keep in GREAT shape.

During an author chat when my editor was part of the chat, she asked what fans loved about the shifters. One fan said, “They get naked.”

So there you have it. They get naked. :)

It’s time to hug a wolf hunk…or big cat hunk. Whichever you’re completely love struck over!

Oh, and what happened with Kathleen in SAVAGE HUNGER? Well, Connor, being the honorable jaguar shifter he is no matter how much he wants Kathleen, will not turn her. So she needs a little help. Maybe his sister, Maya, can instigate things a little?

Never know.

What would you do if you fell in love with a shifter and he’s wary about turning you? How would you change his mind?


Thanks so much to Lovestruck Novice for having me here today, and one lucky person that answers my question will have a chance to win a copy of SAVAGE HUNGER.US/Canada Addresses Only.

Thanks so much for having me, Sarah! Hope everyone's coming up weekend is great!

Heather said...

Hmmm. How would I try to get a shifter guy to turn me? Tough one! Thanks for the suggestions! Being that I'm rather partial to wolves, I'd make the most out of the full moon. My mission would be to put all effort into high gear when the wolf side is the most powerful. Take full advantage when the animal instinct is strong and human logic is not at its full potential.

Terry Spear said...

LOL, you're too cute, Heather! You would do well and it won't be long before you're with a wolf pack. I'm sure of it!

Oh, and btw, I hate these character verification things. It's taken me 3 tries and I hope this one goes through! Nope, #4.

Heather said...

Those things are annoying! I also don't care for the comment moderation on some blogs. I post, and my comment doesn't show up for days. I don't know how that works, but it's crazy how many hoops you need to jump through because of those pain in the neck spammers. I say we set the jaguars AND wolves loose on them :)

Terry Spear said...

LOL, I so agree, Heather!!! I mean, so the robots can't read them! They're so awful, neither can we!!!

Carla Richards said...

HI Terry,
Fun post! I guess I don't know how I'd get him to turn me. Perhaps that is why I am still a boring old human! :)

Terry Spear said...

Hey, Carla! He'll teach you EVERYTHING you need to know and you'll never think of yourself as a boring old human ever again! LOL :)

Bonnie said...

Hi Terry,
Thank you for the tips on shifters. I'm going to go shopping for meat and a doggy door tonight then plan to wisk my boyfriend away to a forest preserve with a lake. Maybe he'll shift and bite me or maybe I'll bite him.
Lol... They get naked.
Thanks for the post. It was fun.

Terry Spear said...

LOL, Bonnie, see, that's what happens when you say something funny on comments on another blog. I quote you! LOL :) It's my favorite quote, by the way. Had my editor laughing so hard, she just loved it! :)

Sarah Simas said...

Thank you again for being here today, Terry! It's so exciting!!

I'll pop in later this afernoon. I've just got home from the doc w/ one kid for pink eye and now it appears I'm headed back for my toddler--think she's got strep! Day in the life of mamahood! Thank goodness for romance novels!! LOL

SheriV said...

I love the tips for making a shifter more at home. :) I do like the naked part. Hmm, I have no idea how I would get him. Maybe try reason and let him know that I want to run on the wild side with him, or maybe find a interfering sibling.

Terry Spear said...

Thanks so much, Sarah! Having trouble with connections, storms!!!

I was sorry to hear about your daughter and toddler but somehow the comment didn't go through. *sigh*

Hope they are feeling better!!!

LOL, Sheri! That would work! :) And you know you want HIM. :)

Sandy Lion, I bet! They're very satisfying!

Thanks so much, Angela!

BN, absolutely! And it would, too!

Thanks so much, Rashda!!! We had storms all day, you must have too up in your area--off the internet, electricity went out, and it's still too hot out! Thanks again! That they get naked is really the beginning of the fun! LOL~!
