Falcon Fae!

I’m still waiting on the print version’s final approval, but it should be soon. And Barnes and Noble’s link isn’t up yet, but will update as soon as it is.

Besides working on Billionaire Wolf Christmas today, my daughter asked if I’d do a newborn shoot for a friend and I said I would.

So next book up is Dreaming of a White Wolf Christmas. 🙂  It releases in October.

Falcon Fae (425x640) (2)

Falcon Fae

(The World of Fae, Book 9)

Prince Owen is tasked with the mission of encouraging Sigrid—a magic user, a falcon fae like him, and the granddaughter of the traitor who tried to take over Owen’s grandfather’s kingdom—to return with him to the falcon fae kingdom to fight their enemy. Only, as far as Sigrid is concerned, Owen and his royal family are her enemies.

She is their last hope to fight a powerful mage, but she’s not buying it. Not until the dark fae queen advises her to do what her grandfather had tried to do before she was born—take over the kingdom!

Golden Fae Book Trailer!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PeboRn1O6xk

How does the golden fae get into big time trouble with one fiery dragon? When playing with fire…

All the golden fae wanted to do was to pick mushrooms for her mother—in the forbidden dragon fae territory, but Kayla sees dragons practicing for their games, and she gets caught at it. She loses her locket that she needs to have when she comes of age in just a couple of weeks so she can keep her magic as a lavender grower for the golden fae. Only now, one highly annoying dragon shifter fae has got it, and she will do anything to get it back.

Alton can’t believe it when the golden fae arrives at his friend’s castle wearing the dragon fae aura now! But he has a mission to go on, save a human and a dragon fae in the human world, and Kayla ends up there offering to help—anything to get him to give her locket back to her. Only a fae seer shoots him with an iron bolt, and Kayla risks everything, trying to get him and the captured maid safely back home again.

Now he will do almost anything to learn the mysterious golden fae’s secrets, and protect her from his own kind at all costs.

Hope you enjoy the video. The castle, bracken and I believe the woods were photos I took in Scotland. The clouds, lavender, fairy statue with flowering garlic chives, and mushrooms from my home, and the ocean from Daytona Beach.

Off to finish proofing the print version one last time, and then I’m back to the beginning of SEAL Wolf Undercover! Have a beautiful day!

Thoughts:

I loved this! I was enthralled, enchanted and enamored by this lively fae story that moved fast and kept me riveted from beginning to the end. There just weren’t any dull moments. The characters were fun and each was on a trip of self-discovery. This is a story that would be perfect for tweens and teens . But… it’s not just for the young. I really enjoyed it, too, and I’m in my 60s.
 
The characters shined! Alicia was raised as a human who could see the fae. All she knew about the fae royal kingdoms, she had learned from her father’s journal. As she and her friend, Cassie, were vacationing on South Padre Island, Deveron, a dark fae. made a move on Cassie. Alicia literally pours cold water on him to put a halt to his shenanigans. Deveron decides that he will enjoy paying her back. He might be surprised, though, to find the tables turned on him.
Bottom-line: If you like to escape to magical fantasy worlds with fun romances, captivating characters and non-stop. entertaining adventure, rush to whatever bookstore you use, and buy this book now!
And another review!!!
Loved this fun review of The Dark Fae also!
“What an amazing read. The Dark Fae is so dark and twisty, while at the same time amusing and flirty. This is the first Terry Spear book I’ve ever read and I have to say I’m astonished at the creativity that went into this first installment of the World of Fae series. I was riveted from the very first sentence. Alicia is a smart aleck who doesn’t quite know when to back off. She had me laughing more times than I can count. Even though she’s scared for her life, she’s tough and won’t back down. I respect that in a heroine. Deveron is delicious and dangerous. He’s the bad boy we all love and he will not let readers down. All of the drama with the dark fae vs. the human world really kept me enthralled. I couldn’t wait to find out whether Alicia would get caught and what would happen to her if she did. Oh and let’s not forget the romance. Wowzers! Alicia and Deveron are hot together…mostly due to the fact that she’s always sniping at him. Like I said, very amusing. This is a couple all readers will root for. They’re the couple who doesn’t belong together so of course, we all want them to make it. The Dark Fae is definitely a must read and I will be recommending it to everyone I know. I can’t wait to devour the rest of the series!”

Debbie’s Book Blog Review

5 Apples!!!

Terry Spear takes readers back to Silver Town in the thirteenth book in the Heart of the Wolf series. Readers of the series will love this very original addition to the series featuring a wolf/coyote hybrid. Spear once again entrances readers with her action packed, romantic writing. This paranormal romance has plenty of suspense and willhave readers on the edge of their collective seats, as Tom Silver, youngest of the Silver brothers finally finds a woman he can’t live without. A great addition to this wonderful series.

What I liked:

Thirteen books into this series and it is still just as exciting and memorable as the every first book. That is remarkable! I usually think that a series needs to end somewhere around ten books because at that point the overall story arc’s are starting to lag. Not so, with this series. The Heart of the Wolf series was one of the very first paranormal series’ that I ever read and I have honestly loved every single book. Spear has a bag of tricks that most author’s can’t even guess at. Because of her military background, her wolf books featuring SEAL’s are fantastic, because of her Scottish background her highland wolf books are spectacular, and because of her impeccable research into wolf behavior and dynamics, every single book she writes about werewolves has a ring of authenticity that is hard to deny. Basically, she’s a phenomenal writer. Whether it’s wolves or fae, or jaguars, she has the write stuff!

Tom Silver has been one of my favorites from the very beginning of this series. He is brother to the alpha of his pack and that comes with a lot of responsibility. He is a protector. He looks after Darien’s interests whether it is in pack matters or business and he even takes on the role as an enforcer in some cases. I was so happy to see him finally get his story. Spear has done such a wonderful job of fleshing out her characters in every book they show up in, that readers by this time, really feel like they know Tom and the kind of woman it will take to make him stand up and take notice. Spear does not disappoint with Elizabeth.

****************

I love this review! One of the things I always really strive for in my books is a uniqueness for each book. They can’t be the same old tired plot, setting, and characters. I’m working on book 16 now!!! So, yes, 14 and 15 have been turned in.

But in each, I have to make them different. When I first started, I would be asked in interviews: What makes this book different from all the rest? And before I write the next book, I do the same with myself to try to make them the most unique story from any other.

Even with the Cougar series, same thing. I wanted something based on what I could envision cougar shifters to be like and worked in their cougar personalities along with their human qualities.

So, I’m having trouble starting A SEAL Wolf for Sale, which is not unusual. Because I have to strive for: the perfect setting, which I had selected and in the computer crash and then having to write Jaguar Pride, I lost my links and the location I had decided on. So I had to go back to the drawing board and find a new location. I have Montana for the story. They have forests, lakes, wolves. 🙂

Now, I have to start with action/adventure/romance/mystery/wolves… all within the first few pages–first meeting, wolf showing early on–to show that wolf shifter part of the equation, but no slow starts. Need conflict.

So I’ve thought of a few different ways to open it, but it’s not working for me. Need something else. Characters have to be heroic. Just all kinds of stuff. 🙂 Once I hit upon the right idea, then I’ll be off and running. But my editor called with edits on A Highland Wolf Christmas. 😦 And then I got two more bear orders, just got home from a visit to my daughter’s place, so trying to get unpacked.

And the brainstorming for SEAL continues.

Plus, I’ve been contacting reviewers to review Cougar’s Mate. 🙂

And I’ve just put The Dark Fae on sale for 99 cents! It will take a while for it to start showing up at the sale price.

 

Ever wonder why body parts mysteriously fall asleep? Where you put those pesky keys? Why you stumble over nothing in your path? Welcome to the world of fae…

The Business of Books

box-set-DARK FAE WITHOUT NUMBERS FINISHED (533x800)

My first box set! Isn’t it cool? Since the first two of my Highland books are with a publisher, I couldn’t do this with my Highland series. And this is the next book series (a teen urban fantasy) that I have that’s growing because of the interest in it. So since I had the sixth book ready for release, I figured I’d release the first five in a box set.

 

First 5 books in the World of Fae series:

The Dark Fae: Alicia has planned a vacation at South Padre Island with her girlfriend Cassie in forever. But just as they’re enjoying a day on the beach, here comes a dark fae to spoil their holiday, except only she can see what he truly is. Alicia has no idea how upside down her world can turn with a chance meeting with one of the dark fae from the royal house of the Denkar.

The Deadly Fae: Lady Sessily is a dark fae, an assassin, and she intends to retire and take up some other occupation so she can have a normal life. Get a boyfriend. Visit the human world to hassle humans like many of her kind do. Attend fae kingdom parties, not as the mystery woman who is scoping out her next intended victim, but just to have fun. Until tall, dark, handsome, and deadly interrupts her plans.

 

The Winged Fae: Serena, a royal member of the Mabara winged fae, has one goal in mind. Stop an impending marriage with a dark fae. As the fae are known to do, she stirs up trouble that she hopes will make her point and get her off the hook. Only nothing goes as she plans.

 

The Ancient Fae: Princess Ritasia misses the adventure of getting her brother and cousins out of trouble, but when the hawk fae king arrives to court her, she becomes involved in trouble nothing like she’s ever faced before.

Dragon Fae: Seeking to save Cassie from the dark fae, Princess Alicia runs into trouble in the form of dangerous fae seers. A dragon fae, who is different from all the rest, is sent to locate and rescue her. Simple mission. All Ena has to do is find the princess and return her home. Except nothing is simple in the world of the fae. Not when two fae kingdoms are involved. And humans. And fae seers. And all the trouble that can cause.

World of Fae Box Set

Amazon

Barnes and Noble
This is book 6 in the popular urban fantasy series where the fae world and ours is separate. But you know how you run into a wall when you know you have plenty of room to clear it, or you can’t find something you just know you could have put in one of three different places, and it’s not in any one of them, or your skin prickles with unease for no apparent reason–well, blame it on the fae. They pop in to play games with us humans. So next time you spill something, it really wasn’t your fault. Just take it as a good natured–or not–fae having a bit of fun at your expense. And the day WILL get better. If the fae move along. Just be glad that you’re not a fae seer–someone who can see them when they’re not visible to the rest of  us. If you can see the fae, that’s a whole other story! And so the series continues!

Hawk Fae book 6 eyes (532x800)

Sometimes doing a good deed can prove to be a disaster, Ena, dragon shifter fae, discovers as she must flee her home. But her staff chooses to go with her and deal with the dangers to reach the safety of the hawk fae kingdom, if the king there welcomes them. The human, Brett, promises to help her escape the marriage to the despicable dragon fae prince, rather than return home to his Earth world. And now all the dragon shifter fae are at risk of having to face the dragon fae king’s wrath.

Esmeralda, the hawk fae king’s sister has been imprisoned by the griffin on their island for half of her life and she finally makes her escape, only she gets herself into even more trouble.

Against her wishes, Ena must forsake Brett on the journey, and he finds his world is turned upside down once again and now he has to survive the life or death trials of the phantom fae kingdom.

demontrouble-too-2500-539x800

Demon Trouble, Too’s audiobook also just released. The narrator who was working the first one was having technical difficulty. *sigh* So two is out before one.

Alana Fainot is a demon gate guardian, stuck in her last boring year of school. But not for long. Hunter and the rest of the gang show up when her astral form can’t return to her physical form, and she’s at the police station trying to talk her way out of having seen the murderer of a summoner. Hunter always knew Alana was trouble, but his kind of trouble, and he’s not leaving Alana alone again.

Celeste Sweetwater, a new kind of demon, joins Hunter and Alana and the rest of the demon guardians in a fight to find a new kind of portal device that can summon several demons at once. But not only that, another Matusa has been unleashed on the unsuspecting human world and the demon guardians must stop him before he wreaks much more havoc.

But this time, the police are involved, paranormal investigators pounce on the area, and the whole mess seems to be spiraling out of the demon guardians’ control.

 
 
Ebook:

I just received some review copies, so if anyone wants to listen to a teen urban fantasy and has never used one of audible’s free credits, let me know and I can give you a copy. These are not on CD. 🙂

Okay, so I’ve had enough goofing off. Totally missed my word count on Jaguar Pride yesterday with finishing these up. Sooo, no more skipping my word count goals!

Have a super Middle of the Week Day!

Fog is Halloween

If I don’t have to go anywhere, I love fog.

It reminds me of “The Fog.” Or any other creepy foggy story where who knows what lurks in it.

It reminds me of Halloween.

It usually means the heat is mixing with a cold front for our area, and that’s even better. This fog was even thicker earlier and I finally remembered to take my  camera out and take a picture of it. 🙂

Demon Guardian Series

demontrouble-too-2500-539x800

I’ve had fun with this YA series, starting with Alana Fainot in The Trouble with Demons–they’re kind of like The Trouble with Tribbles, if you know what I mean, except some are really nasty.

But the teens are a mix of demon heritage and human, and trying to find their place in the world. Just like any of us might. Only their teen problems are much more… deadly.

I just signed a narrator to narrate the second book in the series. The first is halfway narrated, and I found a really cool/hot, since the guy is hot and standing in flames, third book to the series. I will probably call it Demon Hunter.
