Today, HJ is pleased to share with you Terry Spear’s new release: A Silver Wolf Christmas




A Silver Wolf ChristmasCJ Silver and his brothers have returned to Silver Town eager to reconnect with the pack. And with the she-wolf newcomers renovating the old Victorian Silver Town Hotel, it looks like the holidays are going to be very merry indeed.
Laurel MacTire and her sisters are excited to be living in a wolf-run town, but they have another motive- to solve the fifty-year-old mystery of their aunt’s disappearance. When CJ gets a whiff of trouble brewing, his protective instincts kick in-now Laurel has a hotel opening to prepare for, a mystery to solve, and a brawny wolf shifter underfoot. Perhaps she should have resisted the temptation to kiss him so wickedly in the snow. 

Skiing, Anyone? An Excerpt from A Silver Wolf Christmas: How to Win over the She-Wolf on Skis

As soon as Laurel was fitted for ski boots and skis, four instructors descended on her, offering to give her private ski lessons. Arms folded across his chest, CJ just smiled at them.
“Don’t tell me that you’re giving her lessons?” a blond by the name of Cantrell said. Another man, Robert—obviously Cantrell’s twin—silently stood by, nodding. They both looked like Viking gods—blue eyed, muscled, tanned, and grinning broadly.
“I tell you, those Silver wolves always get the women,” Robert said.
“We’ve got to learn their secret.”
She laughed. She’d never expected the wolf rivalry over a woman in a fun-hearted way. She’d been a little concerned about male wolf fights over eligible she-wolves, so she was glad that there was none of that here.
“Are you ready?” CJ asked, giving her a wink.
“Yeah.” She just hoped she wouldn’t do too badly. She could do a lot of things well, but when it came to new adventures like this? She could see herself falling down more than standing up, breaking something before she barely got started. And generally embarrassing herself in front of all the pack members. It would be easier if she and CJ were just doing this at any other ski resort where they didn’t know anyone.
Yet, everyone’s friendliness encouraged her too.
Out of the way of any skiers, CJ showed her how to put her skis on. He demonstrated how she should point her skis to form a V. “Slightly incline your knees inward so that you can dig your skis into the snow a bit. Relax your arms and hold your poles with the tips pointing outward so that you’re less tense.”
She realized then just how tense she was and willed herself to relax. He could probably hear her wildly pounding heart. Hopefully, he just believed she was excited.
“Then you’ll turn, planting the tips of your poles into the snow behind you, and pushing off gently.” He demonstrated. “To slow down, widen your V, and zig-zag down the slope. You can traverse more of the slope to the side and then turn, to go down the slope and again, turn to the opposite side, digging into the slope.
He showed her how to take off her skis, and then walked her to the beginner’s ski lift for the bunny slope. She couldn’t believe how heavy the boots were or how difficult it was to walk in them. She thought it would have been easier just skiing over to the lift, but then she watched a kid of about ten years old flying by, pushing out with his skies to get over there. And another, sliding over the snow, expertly using his poles to push him along.
Skiing just didn’t seem like a wolf sport. Yet she loved the outdoors and loved the fresh air, the smiling faces, everyone looking like they were having so much fun. She was glad she came here before she and her sisters opened the hotel to take a much needed play break.

    I am not sure if skiing is for me. I tried it once and failed. So I want someone who is a good teacher, very patient and very good looking.

  2. kermitsgirl

    Chris Hemsworth! He seems like he’d be good at skiing 😉

    (I just finished watching the second Thor movie, so he’s definitely on my mind at the moment, haha)

  3. Janie McGaugh

    I’ve never been skiing. Ideally, I’d like someone to teach me that was patient and a good teacher. I he could also be good looking, then all the better!

  4. glam009

    Chris Hemsworth or Chaning Tatum …. but I think I will pay no attention to the lesson…

  5. Trudy

    If I wanted to learn, which I don’t, I would want BT Urruela to teach me. He would be compassionate and understanding of physical challenges.

  6. Mary Preston

    I tried skiing once – that was enough. Chris Hemsworth could join me for a glass of wine by the fire though.

  7. taswmom

    I’ve never been snow skiing before, and really think it wouldn’t be my smartest move to try, but, if I were to try, I would want a big, patient, soft spoken guy who really knew what he was doing!

  8. Jen

    I have never been skiing. I would like to have an instructor who is kind, funny, caring, understanding… (and it wouldn’t hurt if he was cute).

  9. Debbi Wellenstein

    Nobody, no, uh-uh-not even if the handsomest man in the world was giving me free lessons!

  10. peggy clayton

    oh please it would be bradley gilbert i think his last name is he is goodlooking and just did a play and he skis and wow love for him to teach a disabled woman how to ski

  11. Glenda

    So many sexy guys to choose from, but I’d probably end up killing myself because I wasn’t listening to what he was telling me. Give me a pro with lots of years teaching.

  12. vadensmommy1

    I would love to but being disabled means I can’t, but in my head I’m fabulous and I have hot sexy guys wishing they could hang out with my but unknown to them, I’m in love with the nerd behind the counter, who turns out is a billionaire shifter. We fall in love and live happily ever after

  13. Patricia B.

    I had the opportunity to have my husband teach me to ski (he is the one I would want to teach me). I decided to opt for no broken bones. Coordinated I am not. I’ll concentrate on the time in front of the fire with him after he is done on the slopes.

  14. Meredith Miller

    I’m not sure I’d be very good at skiing! I’m not very coordinated. But count me in for cappuccinos!

  15. Amanda Thompson

    I’m a person who will probably never go skiing but all of the men I would choose to help me learn to ski have already been mentioned above 🙂
