Buttoned-up Corporal Kaitlyn Amador is dangerous on every level. As a human, she poses a threat to Marine Captain Jax Raymond’s special Force Recon unit. Though the team has a reputation among the other recon units, only their commanding officer knows their secret. As a woman, the danger posed is entirely different. Jax can survive the temptation for only so long before his wolf takes over and pursues what it wants.

Military intelligence specialist Corporal Kaitlyn Amador is the first woman in the Marines to be assigned to a recon team. And everyone’s watching her. Her mission? Not only prove herself worthy of her place in the group, but uncover the mystery of why Bravo Team is so successful. A mission that gets more difficult every time she’s near Jax…

When Danger Bites shows you that even the shadowy part of the government want a piece of the action when they learn the existence of shifters. to keep their pack safe from annihilation a band of wolves must join the services.
Captain Jax Raymond’s special Force Recon unit, is known as one of the best. Now the MIS wants to know their secrets. So, they send in MIS Corporal Kaitlyn “Kat” Amador to infiltrate the Force Recon unit to uncover the mystery of why Bravo Team is so successful.
Romance took a back seat in the 1st title in Bravo Team Wolf. All focus was on building the back story of this elite band of men. Which was totally okay, because without a backstory this series will never take off. Not to say that there wasn’t chemistry between Jax and Kaitlyn. That is what made this storyline work because normally I would complain that there wasn’t enough romance and that is what this genre is about…. Right! But the slow building of their growing attraction made it seemed somehow more real than having them confess their love from the beginning.
Initially, it was Jax training Kat to become part of the TEAM, but it really turns out it was Kat teaching Jax that not all women need a rough bunch of men to protect them.
All in all, I liked When Danger and looking forward to seeing where this series is heading.
I would recommend this book to readers whose into shifter, and military romance.

Enforcer John Nelson has pulled double duty for months, keeping an eye on the Lone Wolves who are his charges as well as those that once answered to Margo Montgomery. More of a loner than most, he doesn’t mind going months at a time without seeing another Enforcer as was his typical pattern or at least it was until the formation of the Three Rivers pack disrupted lives everywhere. Now he must divide his time between watching the upstarts and checking on his charges while working with the other Enforcers to anticipate the next move by the Russian Volchitsa. No Enforcer expected to find themselves among the hunted, but when they target the one wolf he can tolerate, John defies orders to go after her.

Hadley Sexton is a bit of a wild card even for an Enforcer, and she loves being unpredictable. More of a mother hen than she likes to admit, she keeps an eye on her Lone Wolves, and treats them more like family than charges…but when three Enforcers are brutally murdered over the course of three weeks, Hadley discovers someone has been shadowing her trail and they aren’t alone. It is a dangerous game with a brutal enemy, one willing to kill the wolves she’s sworn to protect to draw her out.

In this story, we find that the Russians Volchitsa are trying to eliminate all the Enforcers, by capturing and killing the lone wolves. So, we have Hadley Sexton rounding up all the loan wolves that she is responsible for to try to keep them safe. But is anyone truly safe? When the Russian Volchitsa locates Hadley’s safe house, the war is on to try to relocate the lone wolves.
When John Nelson was unable to reach Hadley, he takes on the mission to locate her. Already three enforcers were killed, will he be on time to save Hadley or will she be number four.

Most Lone Wolves have a story—a pack they left behind, a love they lost, or worse, one they buried. Some leave their packs to roam because they crave freedom and independence. Some leave because, in their hearts, they can’t bear to stay. Some leave because they see no way to go back…

Most wolves will roam at some point in their lives, fledgling adults leave to explore the world while more senior wolves may undertake a journey they always wanted. Many come home again, Mitch Jackson didn’t. He thrilled to living life on the road, first as a roadie for a rock band, traveling from city to city then later as an animal trainer at a circus. He’s had a lot of jobs, and all of them fun. Two years as an Enforcer hasn’t curbed his smile, but a rogue invasion of Russian wolves is enough to put a damper on anyone’s party especially when they set their sights on the packs’ more vulnerable members…

Amelia Sullivan couldn’t stay in Willow Bend, not after her sister embraced the life she’d always wanted. It aggravated her that Shiloh’s defiance earned her a free pass from their parents, parents who’d raised them all to reject the idea of going wolf. Having always put their family first, Amelia needs a breather from wolves, their politics, and their play. Taking the first excuse she can to go to a cooking school on the west coast, she flees. The last thing she expected was an order to return home within three months of her getting away. She wasn’t a wolf, she doesn’t have to obey…of course, not following the rules proves even more costly than she can imagine when she finds herself a prisoner and the change she always thought she wanted to be forced upon her…

Rescuing Amelia seemed a straightforward job until Mitch realizes what they’ve done, then saving her life proves to be the easier task as she undergoes her first transformation far from any alpha. Can a happy go lucky Enforcer find the strength to keep her sane?

Shadow Wolf book #10 in Heather Long Wolves of Willow Bend introduces two wolves from the same world but different packs. Amelia Sullivan was from Willow Bend she grew up with them, she wanted to be one of them. However, following the rules of her human family, Amelia decided to stay human. She stood by and watch her sister become what she wanted to be.

Now Amelia found herself kidnapped and away from all she held dear and was forced to become the one thing she always wanted to be.

Shadow Wolf was very a fast pace, entertaining book. With well-developed characters, that drew you from the start. This book fits right in with the others in this series. What I like about this series so far, is that all the books were stand-alone.

Meet Jake Danes of Hudson River, Lone Wolf, avid gamer, extreme sports enthusiast, and surfer. He’s spent the last two years roaming free, exploring the world and escaping the dark place his pack had become after betrayal and murder tore them apart. Sure life has changed at home, but Jake’s having way too much fun to return. Riding the waves in Monterrey, and living out of a van…it’s the perfect life, one he never wants to give up no matter how many calls he’s fielding from his big brother…then he catches her scent.

Mimi Chase wanted one perfect year. One year away from pack politics and her mother’s matchmaking efforts. Ever since her big brother settled into mating with a healer, Mimi’s mom seems to have gone into overtime in throwing her at every eligible male in the pack. Choosing to roam seemed the best option, and California an ideal location to get away from everything pack related. Her plans for art classes, yoga on the beach, maybe a cooking lesson or two while living a hippy dippy lifestyle are all she cares about…until another wolf buts into her every activity—doesn’t he know the rules?

Lone Wolves aren’t supposed to form relationships, so why doesn’t he catch a hint? Worse, why isn’t she working harder to make sure he does?

When it comes to writing paranormal romance about wolf’s shifter…Heather Long rates right up there with Nalini Singh, Thea Harrison and Suzanne Wright. In Heather Long latest book in the Wolves of Willow Bend series, we are introduced to two wolves how seriously have nothing in coming, one is serious while the other is laid back.

Jake Danes just want to catch the next waves, not spending time fielding phone calls from his big brother. But surfing can what when he catches her scent.

Mimi Chase has her own problems…namely her matchmaking mother. Ever since her brother found his mate, her mother has been throwing every eligible wolf at her. To escape she decided to become a lone wolf temporarily. But being a lone wolf took on a whole new meaning when Jake plopped into her world.

I found that the characters were well developed, the story had its moments where you find yourself laughing out loud. However, in between the humorous moments Heather Long found time to make sure to include suspense and a plenty of hot scenes between our two main characters. Wolf on Board was a wonderful interlude before her next full length novel Shadow Wolf goes on sale next year.

But Lady Katherine Hardwicke is going to know Jarod Parker for what he really is…. A no nonsense takes the bulls by the horns man that is after two things, the person who stole the Buddha statue, and a way to Katherine’s heart.

Hunt Me was a fun loving adventure, full of mystery and suspense. With a smart, sexy characters that will have you smiling

What I liked about Hunt Me was the banter between Jared and Katherine. The chemistry between these two was felt from the very beginning. Plus, it helped that Katherine nickname was an inside joke “Kit Kate”, if you ever watched the television show Castle you get what I mean.

If you like smart as a whip characters who keeps score, on who out does who, then Hunt Me will be the book that you should add to your reading list this summer.

After graduating college and spending a summer breaking the law, Shiloh Sullivan needs to make amends and accomplish something for Willow Bend. When she returns home, her best friend—the wolfish and playful Matt Montgomery—distracts her. In an effort to make his mother feel better, Matt cons Shiloh into telling his mother that she came home for him. The little fib, he promises, is all his mother needs to feel better about his sister’s recent mating and exodus across the ocean.

Pretending a relationship with a wolf is impossible and, while Shiloh might be human, she knows the rules…

The friendly-with-benefits arrangement suits Matt fine. It makes his mother happy, helps the pack forgive his best friend, and gives him a reason to pry into the secrets Shiloh’s been keeping. Still, the closer they get and the more rules they break, the more Matt’s wolf wants to change their con game into a mating game. Two problems stand in his way—Shiloh’s very human parents never wanted their children to take the bite, and a wolf from across the line has his eye on her, too.

Can Matt keep his best friend and mate her too?

My Review: Heather Long series Wolves of Willow Bend gets better and better. In story Wolf With Benefits , Shiloh Sullivan has come home after a summer long hiatus of breaking her packs rules. Who knew that by helping other wolves she would be ostracize by other members of her pack, even her own family members has given her the coldshoulders. Only one person is happy to see her back and that would be her longtime friend Matt Montgomery.

Matt Montgomery tries to distract her at the same time making his mom smile again by coming up with a plan, they would pretend to date. But you know the old saying the “Best laid plans”. When his feelings for Shiloh turn deeper than friendship, Matt has to find some way to keep his friend and mate her too.

Wolf With Benefits was a hot, sexy read with a heartwarming story.

Desert Wolf (Wolves of Willow Bend Book 8)

51aohdyjqll-_sx331_bo1204203200_

Cassius, Alpha of Sutter Butte, leads the most ruthless and dangerous pack in the United States. Misfits, castoffs, and forgotten wolves, they rose to create a pack more than a century ago in utter defiance of the order of the day. Seen as pitiless and cruel, Cassius wants more for his people than a yearly bloodbath as they fight for a better spot in the pecking order. To change his pack means to change himself, and he will find rebellion on all sides, not to mention from his own defiant heart.
Sovvan Stark, Omega of Delta Crescent, lives a cherished, beloved life in the center of her pack–a delicate and hard won balance. Though she is not the only Omega, she is the most experienced with the tremors of pack upset when power shifts from Alpha to Alpha. When her Alpha approaches her about Sutter Butte’s request, Sovvan considers the matter for several months. While she might hold within her the key to helping the Sutter Butte Alpha, the undertaking could very well kill her.

 

My Review: Each time I read one of Heather Long books, the better I am getting to love how she brings to life two characters. Cassius was a ruthless leader. Not because he wanted to be, but; because he had to be. However, as the years pass. Cassius knew that his pack has earned and deserved more than what they have been given, that of a yearly bloodbath. So to better the life for his pack and himself, he knew that changes must be made. So he requested the assistance of Sovvan Stark, Omega of Delta Crescent.

Once Sovvan arrive at Sutter Butte turbulence among the Sutter Butte pack started to occur and the closer that the reaping gets the worse the discontent became.

Desert Wolf was a truly magnificent book from start to finish. The characters are interesting and well written. You want to know when a book is good. It’s when you laugh when the characters are amused and you cry when the characters are miserable. Well; Desert Wolf is that good. I felt every emotion the characters were feeling. And when I turned the last virtual page it left me craving more.

Reserve your copy of Desert Wolf you will be thankful that you did.
