Bella, a Red werewolf, was raised as a gray which was her adoptive pack. She will last a while with the pack that is until the pack leader will start to do anything to get her. She will runaway from the pack as she can not protect herself against the leader. For a while she will be safe but after 150 years of running she will come face to face with Devlyn who will be taking her back to the pack. She had been in love with Devlyn but knows that they can’t be as their leader would kill him.
Devlyn follows his pack as it is his family and he knows no way else which leads him to follow orders. But Devlyn will break the rules this time to help Bella, the woman he has always loved. He will do all that he can to protect her from the Red werewolves who wanted her as a mate and his own pack leader who wanted her.
Heart of the Wolf is the first book to Terry Spear’s series Heart of the Wolf. This author was recommended to me by my mom. She has been reading this series and keeps talking about it to me, so I figured I would have to try the first book. So my first thought was I liked the book. It grabbed me at the beginning and it moved along pretty well. There were no real slow parts that stopped you from reading the book.
Bella is a strong werewolf but is no match for her alpha which is why she had to runaway from him especially as she loves another. Devlyn has loved Bella from a far and knew that he couldn’t have her. I kind of wanted him to just get over this follow the orders of his alpha, who was a villain, and go for the woman he loved. Well that didn’t happen quite as quick as I would have liked but then there wouldn’t be a story to be told. Needless to say they do find a way to be with each other but danger will be very much in their path. There is the threat of these Red werewolves and also the Gray pack whose pack leader, Volan, wants nothing but Bella. There is a lot of violence in the book but that would be expected as it is about werewolves and I thought Spear wrote it well. There was a lot sex that is between Bella and Devlyn but once again that is expected as this is about werewolves and lust happens when there are two that mated and when the full moon comes.
As far as werewolf books go this one was good and it was interesting with these two packs, the Red and Gray. You don’t always read about the laws that are followed in the packs so I liked that part in the book. It was kind of horrible how easy it was for the Alpha leaders to claim their mates especially if they don’t want to be claimed like Bella. But she is not without resources and chooses her own mate not the villain Volan.
I wouldn’t mind trying another of her books from this series to see where it will be going. I looked at the list of books in this series and there are plenty to read.
