Meet Allan Rappaport from SEAL Wolf Hunting by Terry Spear w/an Excerpt & a Giveaway

I have another excerpt for you today, this time from a PNR novel. This was my first Terry Spear novel and I'm happy to say I liked it. So, make yourself comy, ignore the cats or pat the cats, whichever you prefer, and enjoy the excerpt! There's a giveaway at the end too. :)

Meet the Bachelors of Cottage Grove

Full Name: Allan Rappaport
Occupation: SEAL and now Special Undercover Operative
Height: 6 ft
Hair Color: Dark brown hair
Eye Color: Green
Age: 30
Wolf: Gray
Originally from: Northern Montana

Describe yourself in 100 words or less: An adventurer, likes to try new things, willing to take risks. I’ve become a diver for the sheriff’s department, and that means staying closer to home, so I’m ready to really enjoy some time off to be with a lady. Before, I was often off on missions in the jungle, so I’m glad to be able to help lead the wolf pack and have some real quality time with a woman.

 Allan was next up, and the bidding was going strong as he got into the fun of the auction, flexing his muscles and smiling brightly.

“Way to go, SEAL!” Lori and Rose shouted.

“Take off your shirt!” Emma shouted.

Catherine whooped and whistled. Paul had to smile at Emma and Catherine.

Lori’s face reddened a bit, probably because her own grandma had shouted out the recommendation.

Allan began unbuttoning his shirt slowly and the crowd went wild.

Paul laughed. He hadn’t thought that a honey-do bachelor auction would be anything like this. Then again, Emma was a wolf and they could change the dynamics of a situation in a heartbeat. The ranch hands made a big deal of jerking their shirts out of their waistbands and then starting to unbutton them.

A woman shouted, “Just the shirts, gentlemen.”

And that had everyone laughing.

Stripper music began to play, and Paul removed his shirt to the beat like the others did.

Clapping hands, wolf whistles, and shouts indicated the women were just as excited to bid for the SEALs as they were for the cowboys.

Paul tossed his shirt to Lori for safekeeping. When she grabbed the shirt and held it close, he smiled at her.

Allan went for two hundred and fifty dollars to a lady wearing a pink cowboy hat…
