A Note from Terry Spear:

When I was writing Alpha Wolf Need Not Apply, I went with some of my friends, who are also big-time fans of my wolf series, to stay on a wolf reserve in a cabin complete with solar lighting. Which meant we had a tiny bit of light at night, and then we were using flashlights or camp lights. Water was restricted, so we used an outhouse until it grew dark, and two of us slept on mattresses on the attic floor, the others in rooms on the first floor. We had a blast.

Every morning and night and sometimes in between, we heard the wolves howling in the reserve a short distance away. The cabin is also owned by the wolf reserve and all the land around it. But what made the trip extra special was when Rory, one of the wolf handlers, brought two of the wolves, ambassador wolves, to meet with us up at the cabin.

If you’ve been around dogs, that’s what they’re like — sniffing to learn more about you. Checking you out to see if you’re female or male. You have to wait to let them accept you before you can make contact. Zoerro was the gray timber wolf, male, alpha. He’s been in promotional advertising for Game of Thrones. How cool is that to pet the wolf who was in the ads? He allowed me to pet him and stood by me for some time while I asked Rory about their behavior. He raised him from a pup, but said how wrong it was to raise wild animals like that, and he now educates people on not doing so.

The other wolf was an Arctic wolf, Sabine, and sadly she has passed away. She and Zoerro were fast friends, and the staff has no clue why she had suddenly become sick and died. But she was so sweet. She tried to give me a kiss. I wasn’t quite ready for that! Rory told me she loved to be petted from behind on her legs underneath her. I sure hoped he knew what he was talking about as I reached between her legs and petted her!

Like dogs, they have their own likes and dislikes, and that was hers.

As an alpha wolf, Zoerro had to scent mark. He claimed the tire on my Escort, and after we went driving all over a Native American reservation seeing ruins that dated back to 1100 AD, we returned and Zoerro came back to see us. He smelled the tire, satisfied it was still his, and re-scent marked it.

But that wasn’t all he scent marked. We had filled a water dish for him on the patio. After he drank from it, he lifted his leg and peed in it, not missing a drop. We all laughed and said if only husbands could be that accurate!

The morning before we packed up and left, we all went down to the compound in the car, parked before the sun began to rise and readied ourselves to record the howling. With a picture of the sunrise, I recorded the wolves, wolf dogs, dogs, and New Guinea singing dogs all adding to the chorus. It was a thrill of a lifetime. And perfect for writing about those sexy alpha wolves.

What would you do if you had a chance to pet a wolf?

An Excerpt from Alpha Wolf Need Not Apply

They had barely finished eating lunch when he got a call that a couple with their sixteen-month-old baby had been hiking on a trail that led up to one of the higher-elevation lakes — and had been caught out in the open during the thunderstorm. Eric and Pepper took off in his truck to rescue them.

When they reached the couple, they took them down to the ranger station, and Eric got a call about an off-road vehicle driving in an area of the park where driving was not allowed. The truck was stuck in a creek. Oil and other harmful chemicals could poison the water, just because someone wanted to drive somewhere that wasn’t allowed and unsafe to cross. Eric couldn’t help but be angered at the thoughtlessness of some people.

He ticketed the driver and hoped he’d receive a hefty fine, while Pepper told the man all the ramifications of what he’d done — the way he’d destroyed the plants his tires had trampled, the chemicals his truck left in the water, and how that ruined the river and that area for the wildlife and the visitors who came to enjoy the natural beauty of the park. She told him three times that he should be ashamed of himself.

Eric had to fight smiling at her, glad she was wearing her uniform so she looked official and could say what she had a mind to say.

The man opened his mouth to speak once, but Eric said, “The lady is talking.” Ranting, but tough if the driver of the vehicle didn’t like it. Everything she said was true.

Eric felt the same as she did. Helping people when their vehicles got stuck in mud on regular roads because of the rain was an entirely different story. It would be a good one on the lawbreaker if his truck was unsalvageable. A maximum penalty could result in the man getting a fine of $5,000 or six months in prison, or both, which would suit Eric fine. Before he could mention the federal law that covered destruction to National Park Service property and personal liability, Pepper was quoting it.

Eric loved her and was glad she had come with him for the rest of the afternoon. They spent a couple of hours checking out campsites and helping folks move their tents where water runoff had flooded the area they had been set up in.

They’d both been wearing rain gear, but when they had to help rescue a couple of canoeists from a capsized canoe in one of the rivers, Eric removed his coat and tied himself to a tree while he waded out to reach them. Pepper took care of the first of the men, shivering and hypothermic, wrapping her own raincoat around him to warm him.

Once they’d helped haul the men and their boat to safety and gotten medical help for them, it was time to quit work for the day.

Now the real fun would begin.

As soon as he and Pepper parked at the cabin and got out, Eric scooped her into his arms and set her on the covered porch. She pulled out the key and unlocked the door, then he whisked her into the room, shut the door, and they began kissing.

Her shirt was plastered against her breasts, her pants clinging to her legs, her curly hair dripping.

“I like this new look on you,” he said, growling a little, his hand molding around her cold breast.

“Fire first?” she asked, kissing him back while she slid her hand around his arousal, his pants molding to his body just as much.

“Fire already started.”
