The rise of so many lone wolves into a prospective sixth pack brings the Alphas of all the North American packs to Willow Bend for a summit. Having so many powerful dominants in one place invites challenges and hazards. No protocol can be ignored and none feels the strain more than Lincoln Buckley. He’s been charged by his Alpha to act as liaison for the Delta Crescent Alpha—the fierce and wildly beautiful Serafina Andre.
Serafina stands apart from her ‘fellow’ Alphas. As the only female to hold sway over a North American pack, she only has Delta Crescent’s interests in mind. She expects challenges from the other male Alphas, dominants all, due to their need to protect females. It doesn’t surprise her in the least to find out the wolf assigned as her liaison has also been tasked with her protection. What does startle her is the depth of her interest in him.
An Alpha doesn’t submit, no matter how much the woman in her might crave him. Her pack must come first, especially since what Willow Bend proposes is insanity…
Carol LaGatta 5.0 out of 5 stars Tense, suspenseful, funny and sexy Reviewed in the United States on August 24, 2018 Verified Purchase Tensions are high in this book as we meet all the Alphas. The severity of the prospect of a sixth pack has Mason calling for a summit of all the Alphas, but Emma also needs to speak with the other healers regarding the issues from Hudson River. Thus the Alpha must bring their healer, since no Alpha will let harm come to a healer. Mason is a crafty devil, I swear it! His choices for each Alpha's liason is genius. Claire for Cassius, Dylan for Diesel, Owen for Brett and Linc for Serafina. Claire because of her relationship with Cassius, Dylan and Owen because of their strength, and Linc because of his Alpha potential although he doesn't want it. I couldn't believe Diesel's audacity, or for that matter Alexis storming in, between Mason and him. A hold your breath moment for sure even before the first summit meeting. Serafina comes on to Linc pretty strong, but he fights his attraction for the sake of the summit. That is until he can't. After the matings in the previous books, I can't help but wonder if Mason already knew Linc and Sera would become mates. I did quite a bit of giggling, held my breath more than once, I even sniffled a few times. Yet another book I couldn't put down until I turned the last page.
Karli 5.0 out of 5 stars Linc and Sera Reviewed in the United States on March 28, 2015 Verified Purchase This series is detailed, suspenseful, complex and addictive. The characters are three dimensional and the world building is superb. The storyline for this book involves politics, loyalty, compassion, diplomacy, arrogance and sacrifice. I loved it. The author is on my auto-buy list and her books are on my reread and recommend lists. I can't wait for book six. In Book Four, an Italian alpha and her lone wolf mate began a new sixth pack, made up primarily of lone wolves. Mason, Alpha of the Willow Bend pack, has invited the other four Alphas to meet with him at Willow Bend to discuss the issues and come to a decision about the new, illegal pack. He assigns Lincoln, triplet brother to AJ and Tyler, as liaison to Serafina, Alpha of the Delta Crescent pack. Sera is a strong, beautiful, and intelligent woman, and she was Mason's former lover when he was a lone wolf. Mason warns Linc that she is strong willed and tends to get what she wants, usually without her prey realising they have been manipulated. But Linc is an alpha, too, built like a tank, and a carpenter by trade. He is respectful but isn't intimidated by Sera or her position. What he is, is attracted at a very cellular level. So when Sera pursues, he knows standing his ground won't be easy. One person found this helpful
Annie 5.0 out of 5 stars FEMALE ALPHA AWESOMENESS Reviewed in the United States on June 16, 2015 Verified Purchase Bayou Wolf is the 5th book in Heather Long‘s Wolves of Willow Bend series. Bayou Wolf is a great story about a female alpha. The author amazes and stuns with her ability to pull off such a strong female character – I am talking ALPHA strong – and have her remain such a feminine presence. Her insight and strength created a fresh feel pushing an Alpha story up to a new level. Bayou Wolf in its entirety is a very unique story. All of the Alphas from North America have come to Willow Bend creating a tense situation. The fate of many lies in their hands and how they interact provided a clear glimpse into each of the Alphas. I loved this dynamic that was intertwined with the story of Serafina (Alpha of Delta Crescent) and Linc (Willow Bend pack). The honesty between Serafina and Linc was part of the allure of this story. I enjoyed their interactions and attractions during every part of the story. I am not going to lie here. This book contained so many things I already love. Yet, those things were not the basis of what made this a great story. If you have not read this series and love pack dynamics and werewolves, you do not want to miss this series. I cannot wait to see what happens next! I rate Bayou Wolf 4.5 out of 5 Bullets! Read less
MELINDA G 5.0 out of 5 stars Willow bend wolves Reviewed in the United States on March 30, 2015 Verified Purchase Heather long has out done herself. In this fifth book of the wolves of willow bend we get to see Linc the last of the triplets, that is not mated, go up against a woman who is more powerful and determined than he is. Sera is a strong alpha that has had to prove herself capable enough and willing to take care and be responsible for her pack. Putting these two strong personalities together could be very explosive making everything that Mason is trying to do fall apart. I could not put the book down until i finished it. This is one of those books that I want to go on and on because i can see not only the two high profile characters in this story line but also at least six others like Ranae, Brett, Cassius, the Yukon pack, Trish, Jerome,, and Amy. I will definitely continue to follow this series.
