TERRY SPEARS | Leidolf Wildhaven and His Workout Routine

August 23, 2010

AUTHORTITLEComing up with new blog post ideas for a blog tour can be challenging. So when I mentioned this to a fan, she suggested my having Leidolf as my studio guest.

What she particularly wanted to know was: Does he work out and what he does in a day. And how many times? I’m sure running through the woods naked is a regular routine. But, he also must lift weights to get that great body and stamina. I heard he has stamina. All night long.

Thanks so much, Donna, for giving me some wolf ideas to discuss and your fun take on the subject.

Absolutely, Leidolf has stamina. It’s a wolf thing, you know.
Luckily, Leidolf Wildhaven, of Portland, Oregon and the surrounding area (he’s a pack leader, so the surrounding area is his home also), does indeed work out. Mostly, of late, with Cassie Roux, but since this is a G-Rated blog, I’ll have to suffice it to say, he wants to leave his legacy to the pack, and he’ll have a WHOLE lot of fun doing it. Plus, another blog wishes me to discuss the mating behavior of wolf packs. Hmmm…so I don’t want to get too repetitive here.

But truly, Cassie and Leidolf do work out in other ways, that is to say in play. Wolves by nature do play. It’s a way for them to practice their leadership skills in play. It’s a form of practice hunting, of socialization, and just meant to be fun. So in both Seduced by the Wolf (in stores this month!)—when the play is strictly between Leidolf and Cassie in their wolf forms, and in Wolf Fever (December 2010)—where the play is with a wolf pack in their human forms, it’s meant to be fun and, well, sexy, if the two who are playing are in the mood.

Now, I’m not talking about hot play, as in… sexy, but in hot, as in tongue-panting hot. Oh all right, it’s impossible to make this a really G-rated blog when so many might take my meaning in a not so G-rated way.

Wolves are hot and sexy. What can I say?

Now, back to working out. Lifting weights is definitely not a wolf’s way. Leidolf prefers to carry Cassie, if he’s doing any lifting at all. And keeping her warm is another work out. For those who are sliding down that slippery slope again—what I mean, is that he has to gather firewood, in the all-together, to build a fire, to keep her warm. Here I am being all nice and innocent, and I know just what you’re thinking. 
Back to stamina. Wolves can run miles and in fact they can travel all night long. So yes, Leidolf has no trouble in running marathons. ESPECIALLY when he’s got the extra incentive of tracking down a little red wolf! And jumping? Yep, they do a high-jump proud. It’s great for tackling bad wolves in a single bound, or jumping over fences at the zoo, when they get into trouble that way.

Did I mention he loves to swim, too? He doesn’t bother with swimming trunks though. Too cumbersome. And besides, he’s a wolf. They love to be au naturale in the wilderness. And who wouldn’t? Although it’s a little too cold for Cassie, so she passes and prefers to swim as a wolf. Yes, they love to swim. And they love to do a little fishing while they’re at it. Much easier as a wolf!

Okay, so after all those workouts, playing, fishing, building fires, and carrying Cassie around, he enjoys a wolfish nap. Although, I have to say, sometimes Cassie’s not quite ready to sleep.

And so he’s back to building some more of that stamina up.
There. My G-rated blog. Sort of. And I can’t thank Donna enough for asking about Leidolf. He’s definitely a wolf.

Thanks so much for having me here today and for everyone dropping by to comment!

So now that Donna has had her turn, does anyone else have a question about Leidolf?  Anyone want to trade places with Cassie???

Thanks to everyone who takes the time to drop by and say hi!



His first priority is to protect his pack…

Werewolf pack leader Leidolf Wildhaven has just taken over a demoralized pack. With rogue wolves on the loose causing havoc and the authorities from the zoo suddenly zeroing in on the local wolf population, the last thing he needs in his territory is a do-gooder
female, no matter how beautiful and enticing she is…

She’ll do anything to help wolves…

Biologist Cassie Roux has dedicated her life to protecting wolves in the wild. On a desperate mission to help a she-wolf with newborn pups, the last thing Cassie needs right now is a nosy and entirely too attractive werewolf pack leader trying to track her down…

With rogue wolves and hunters threatening at every turn, Cassie and Leidolf may find their attraction the most dangerous force of all…
