Bear order completed last night and typed notes from the plane on Call of the Cougar. Have 2 more bear orders I want to finish today. But it’s time to PARTY!!!

And this wonderful review from Jen on That’s What I’m Talking About!

http://twimom227.com/2014/10/review-a-highland-wolf-christmas-by-terry-spear.html

I am so glad to have finally been able to read Calla and Guthrie’s story. These two have been circling each other for a while now as secondary characters, and I very much enjoyed how their obvious fascination for one another played out. Although they’ve known each other for most of their lives, except for the time Calla’s family lived elsewhere, they really don’t know each other well at all. But, from the beginning of the book, Calla and Guthrie are revealed to be surprising and unpredictable, and it doesn’t take long for a grudging proximity to one another to turn into an undeniable and sweet attraction.

Although I’ve liked all of Ms. Spear’s leading clan wolves for various reasons, Guthrie may be my favorite of them yet. As the pack accountant, he’s more somber and analytical, as well as more skeptical and hesitant, than the other members of his family. Guthrie is lacking in the alpha-male blustering that his brothers have expressed so comically in previous stories, his drive to ensure the survival of himself and his pack dictating nearly all of his decisions. He’s just as strong and willing to fight as the others, but his approach is as much about purpose as passion.

It’s going to take a lot of mistletoe…

Guthrie MacNeill, financial advisor for his clan and werewolf pack, is at his wit’s end when the pack leader’s mate hires a gorgeous party planner to bring holiday cheer to the castle. Guthrie’s wildly attracted to Calla, except he can’t reconcile the fact that his job is to save the clan’s money, and hers seems to be to spend it.

Sun and Shadows in San Antonio–the Alamo & It’s Nearly Time to Party!!!

RWA 2014,, San Antonio 034 (640x427)

The sun peeking through the wrought iron fences of one of the arches at the Alamo.

Shadows and Ivy (640x427)

I took a picture of the ivy trailing down the wall, but what I found fascinating when I looked at the picture later was the iron decoration, the beam, and the ivy’s shadows.

RWA 2014,, San Antonio 018 (640x427)

A ray of sunlight on the flowers that made it look like they were ready to beam up, aye, Scottie?

trellis with vines (640x427)

The lovely vine covered trellis, and the interesting patterns of live oak shadows across the grass.

Squirrel Alamo (639x640)

Two spots of sun next to the squirrel who decided to turn just as I snapped the shot! He looks a bit contorted, doesn’t he?

Texas bench (640x427)

And the slats of the Texas bench.

Okay, back to work, no more goofing off!

Ha!

Her Highland Hero
Lady Isobel is a Norman laird’s daughter, living near the Scots border where her father, Lord Pembroke, is trying to keep the peace. But her mother was a Highlander and the man Isobel loves most of all is Laird Marcus McEwan, who has been bringing news of her mother’s people for years. But now Isobel’s father wishes her wed to an English nobleman, who will carry on his title. Isobel will wed no other man but her heart’s desire—and that is one braw Highlander from her mother’s homeland.
Laird Marcus McEwan has loved the feisty lass forever. For years, Marcus has tried to convince Lord Pembroke to allow him to wed his daughter. But the Norman lord will not allow it. Then ambushes and murders make it too dangerous for Marcus to reach a peaceful resolution.

Nothing goes as planned and keeping the lass for his own is fraught with danger, as they try to determine who was behind the killings. Isobel and Marcus will do everything in their power to ensure they are together as they have always vowed they would be.

And we have an all-star cast of authors joining me in another FB party, this one for Hero of a Highland Wolf, more on that later. Still waiting on a couple of the authors to decide on times.

Then my roommate for the conference coming up after this next one informed me we could be drinking champagne while I posted. What???

Ack!!!! My release date is on the day I’ll be at another conference. The last time that happened, I made USA Today Bestseller. So maybe another miracle???

Okay, off to get a million things done. Have blog tour stuff, promised I’d make 50K by this weekend on Call of the Cougar, and need to pack.

Have a super great Saturday!!!

And to everyone who dropped by to party or already bought the new releases, thanks so much!!!

Note to self: Quit Overbooking.

🙂

I need a keeper.

Dragonflies in Flight & the Dinner Out–the New Art of Conversation

2 dragonflies in flight dragonfly in flight (4)dragonfly in flight

When I water, the dragonflies come buzzing around. But even when I don’t, they do. They must be really smart, unlike birds, and know that when I’m out, I might just be getting ready to water. The birds can’t figure out that if I’m out there, I might be bringing them food or water. Maybe that’s where they come up with the term bird brain? It is hard, well, for me, to catch a dragonfly in flight. They fly very fast, but I had fun capturing these images!

sunflower stretching out2 (640x338)

I took some more pictures of the sunflowers. I love them. They remind me of my dad who had planted them so many years ago and once they are gone, I won’t see them for another year. I particularly loved this one, stretching out.

 

And a picture is worth a million words, don’t you think?

Dinner Out–The Art of Conversation

🙂

And yes, while this was going on…I took the picture. 🙂

Okay, I’m back to writing. I only reached 11,000. I was working on setting up a Facebook party for next week for Her Highland Hero Release with some other Highland romance authors. After that, I’ll be doing a Hero of a Highland Wolf one, so stay tuned! And I contracted a narrator who is actually Scottish to do the narration for Her Highland Hero, so excited about that. 🙂

Back to writing!
