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…

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.

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.

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!

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.

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

The Classics

When was the last time that you sat down and read a book that you consider a classic? I never cared for many of the books that are traditionally considered classic such as “Little Women” or “Great Expectations”. I did read others by way of Reader’s Digest. For me, nothing beats “Lord of the Rings”.

I own a box set of LOTR, but rarely get it out anymore. It’s physically heavy and a bit unwieldy. Then a few days ago, I found the box set on Kindle Unlimited! I’m in heaven! This is the first time I’ve started reading it in absolutely years.

Moral of the story? Take a search at your favorite retailer for a favorite classic book!

Interstellar Brides 5: Mated to the Beast

There may be affiliate links in this post. As an Amazon Associate, I may earn a small commission from qualifying purchases.

After two of her brothers are killed in battle with the relentless alien menace that threatens the entire Interstellar Coalition, Sarah Mills volunteers to join the fight in an effort to bring home her last surviving brother. When she is mistakenly processed as a bride rather than a soldier, however, she rejects the match. But her mate has other ideas…

Dax is an Atlan warlord, and like all the men of his race, a primal beast lurks within him, ready to emerge in the fury of battle or the heat of the mating fever. When he learns that his bride has chosen to fight on the front lines rather than share his bed, he sets out to track her down and take what the beast demands.

Sarah is none too pleased when a massive brute claiming to be her mate arrives suddenly in the midst of a battle, and her displeasure turns to fury when Dax’s presence disrupts her mission and leads to the capture of her brother. But after her commanding officer refuses to authorize a rescue mission, Sarah’s best hope of saving the only family she has left is to accept Dax’s offer to help, even if that means giving herself to him in return.

Though he is thrilled to have located his wayward bride, Dax quickly discovers that Sarah is nothing like the meek, submissive women of his world. If he wants her, he will have to tame her, with a firm hand applied to her bare bottom if necessary. But Dax doesn’t just want Sarah, he needs her. Can she satisfy the fearsome beast within him before he loses control completely?

Dax is so close to going berserker his commander demands he be tested for a bride. This Atlan has his work cut out for him. His bride is not some sweet bidable Atlan female raised to sooth the Beast but a warrior.
Look forward to some fighting action, mating cuffs, huge alien, spanking, plugs and so many orgasms im surprised she could still talk!

Damn I love this series. Sarah & Dax are my favorite couple in this series so far. Sarah was trying to get signed up for the front lines of the war and work side by side with her only remaining brother. They accidentally processed her as a bride instead of the war, which she refuses. Dax is starting his mating heat and they get him processed right away for a bride, but his bride was never taken out of the system and is not a part of the program.....so, he goes to get her. Her and her brothers team are in the middle of an op when he lands right in the middle. This causes her brother to be taken and her and her mate to go get him back.

This is one of my favorite sci-fi series, it always has some action, it's funny and so damn hot.....the trifecta in my opinion. It's a real addiction.

Mated to the Beast- Sarah is a warrior in her own right and she's volunteering for the coalition because her brother's out there alone. Only the new warden at the Interstellar Bride program is mixed up and puts her through the bride testing instead of the warrior testing. And she's matched to an Atlan who's about to go into beserker mode if he doesn't get matched to his mate. Dax is at his limit, he needs a mate and now, or he will face being executed before he's too dangerous to be around. The problem is, his mate is off fighting the Hive instead of joining him.
This was my gateway into the Interstellar Bride series. I read it over a year ago and then found my way back recently, deciding to read them in order this time. I love the Atlan warriors and their devotion to their females.

He is a warlord, never defeated in battle, and he has come to take what he wants. He means to conquer not just Rowan’s lands, but her beautiful virgin body as well, and her efforts to defy him merely result in her being mounted and claimed with her well-spanked bare bottom still burning.

In this new series that the author has started, we are with the werewolves from the Wayward Mates series. This is set in the future where a plague has gone through the world and has reverted to medieval times.

Rowan is the alpha of Calon Onest. As a female, her pack is happy with her, but the rest of the wolf packs are not. After she kills the envoys from the council, they send Alaric, the warlord. Alaric is more than happy to go as he is looking for a place to settle down with his troops. On the way, he discovers that Riwan is his fated mate and that changes his plans somewhat. Of course, he tames Rowan, but the fun is the way it happens.

I highly recommend this book. I loved it and am looking forward to at least two more books in the series with Arielle and Sloan

I read an advanced copy of this book and as usual my opinion is reflected in the fact that I bought a copy as soon as it went "live". Meet a new, post-apolalyptic family of the Mates. We may have traveled to the future, to a new world but Calon Onest and Ravenscar along with their wolf shifters are going strong. Rowan is a alpha in her own right and rules the pack at Calon Onest - until she is "invaded" in a most unusual way by Alaric of Ravenscar. As usual Delta has created a wonderful, super kick-ass heroine, a strong, dominant male and mixed it with a great story, steamy encounters and romance. I loved it and can't wait for the next story

She-wolf Janna Macks knows trouble when she sees it, especially when it comes in the form of an irresistibly broody cowboy like Cole Harper. Her fledgling pack is already in the cross hairs of a ruthless group of rogues, and falling head over heels in lust with a human will only endanger her loved ones more. The problem is, her wolf knows her destined mate when she sees him — and Cole is it.

Rodeo pro Cole Harper has never felt this off-kilter before. One minute, he’s lusting after Janna, the spunky waitress he can’t get off his mind, and the next, he’s growling at a dark inner voice demanding all kinds of crazy things — like howling at the moon and claiming Janna as his own. There’s only one thing stronger than the overwhelming need for Janna, and that’s the fear that without her, he’ll succumb to the strange inner beast wrestling for control of his haunted soul

I've read pretty much all of Miss Lowe's "Twin Moon Ranch" books, and I always love them. When I saw that she had a spin-off series, I eagerly snapped up a copy of the first book, and it was just as good. "Temptation" is the second book in the series, and as always, LOVED it. (And I can't wait for the next one now, too.)

It's hard to review this book without accidental spoilers... the bad guys from the first book are back - the tension waiting for the to make a move or not is really good. Janna is a sweet, smart, optimistic woman you can't help but like, and Cole is such a sweetheart. I loved his POV. Lots to love about this couple.

I always highly recommend Miss Lowe's shifter books, especially the ones that are in any way linked to Twin Moons. She always has interesting, sympathetic heroes/heroines, and really, really BAD villains. Always good suspense, pacing, and plots

5.0 out of 5 stars A little twist on the wolf/human love story
Reviewed in the United States on October 10, 2016 Verified Purchase
I loved this second installment of the Blue Moon Saloon series.

Cole is a human cowboy that was scratched by a wolf during a bar fight. He does not understand why there seems to be a voice inside his head that is urging him to claim Janna as his "mate". Janna is a waitress at the local bar and is a wolf shifter. She has always liked Cole, but lately her wolf keeps calling him her mate. That seems strange since she didn't feel the whole "fated mate" vibe when she first started seeing him. What changed?

This is a little different spin from a lot of wolf-human stories where the woman is usually the human half of the story. We learn a little about Cole's past and what brought him to live in seclusion and work a menial job at a stable. The purist wolves will also make another appearance and bring the whole Cole/Janna thing to a climax. Can't wait for Soren's story. Hope I already own it

Cole never knew what hit him. And Janna was blindsided because she could not notice Cole was her destined mate. She figured it was just a simple crush or motorbike it lust. One scratch and the changes started to happen. For Cole he knew he had secrets and a past but he wasn't ready for the truth. He was hearing voices and assumed he was going crazy but the need to protect Janna his mate was like a craving. Janna knew humans were really "off limits" She could not help how she felt about Cole. But one thing for sure she's a smart cookie and realized that after that fight Cole started acting different. She had to do everything in her power to help her mate make it through the change. Not too many humans survived being turn you had to be strong and hot dog Cole fit the bill. I doo loved this story that I literally could not stop reading until the end. And what an ending...let's just say I cannot wait for Soren's story come out. We get a glimpse of it at the end of Janna and Cole's escaped. Show Stopper.

I love Dragon Shifter books, they are amongst my favourite genres to read and there are never enough great books to read in this genre. This series was definitely a perfect find for me. The writing was very good and the story pulled you in from book one and continued in book two. I am so looking forward to the third book in this series.

The first Book followed the leader of the Dragon Guard Rayne and his Mate Kyndall's story and I thought that was a great book... but book two, "Her Dragon to Slay" was just that much better! "Her Dragon's Fire" was Aiden and Grace's Story and you could sense the Love between them and the connection they had.

Aiden was sexy hot and an oh so romantic alpha male, Grace was a very independent strong woman as well, she had a mind of her own and challenged Aiden every chance she could. There was so much more to these characters and the obstacles they faced and had to overcome made you feel just that much more for them, especially Aiden. There were definitely some very steamy scenes, which I love, very detailed and scorching hot. One can only wish they had a Man so devoted to a Woman"s every need like the men (Dragons) in these books!

The writing was fantastic and brought the characters to life and I had a hard time putting this book down (I got nothing done over the weekend I read both books in 2 days). The book was edited really well and the story flowed from one page to the next effortlessly. I can only hope that the rest books in this series get better. I loved that there is a little about all of the characters in the books and you get a glimpse at previous characters and what they are doing. I can't wait for Lance and Samantha's story, April can't come soon enough.

I would definitely recommend this series to those who like the Paranormal genre. It was an outstanding read and you won't be disappointed.

This book was much better than Book One because the plot was a lot more interesting, and I enjoyed the action. However, the writing is still a bit repetitive, too detailed in parts, and there are too many things that were very similar to the first book.

I love Aiden as much in this book as I did in the story about Rayne and Kyndel. He has strength, passion, and is not afraid to show or feel emotions.

Grace, on the other hand, started out being a heroine I liked, but she soon became demanding, insensible, and even put their lives at risk with her foolishness...all because she had to see everything "with her own eyes!" Really?!

I liked the other characters, the brethren--Lance, Royce, Aaron, and Devon. I definitely want to read their stories. I'm also curious about what eventually happens to Aaron's and Aiden's traitorous brother, Andrew

Remember Grace from book one? You know, Kyndel's best friend who had borrowed her car and left Kyndel to walk home the night she met Rayne? Yep, that's her. Big city girl from affluent parents, dad an ambassador and mom a humanitarian, is now an attorney for the State Prosecutor. Unfortunately, she had her insecurities and one of those had been about the opposite sex and love. Her ex in college had cheated on her and Grace overheard him tell the other girl he was only with Grace to meet her father and advance his political career and then made disparaging remarks about her weight. Grace decided then and there, in her senior year, love was for suckers. She wouldn't go that route again. Aiden was a dragon of the Elite Dragon Guard. His twin brother Aaron was two minutes older than him and their baby brother Andrew was ten years younger. Not only was Andrew the baby of the family, but he had two different colored eyes and was considered to be the mark of a Special One. Aiden was the first person Andrew had opened his eyes to and made a connection with, so there was a special bond between them. Unfortunately that bond had been broken the night Aiden thought Andrew had been killed. Now, six months later, he's still looking for Andrew, who turned out to be alive and using black magic. He had turned traitor and Aiden was hunting him before more people were hurt. Julia Mills has an innate ability to tap into the realm of dragons and bring us a world consisting of an elite group of dragon guards who are duty bound to protect humans and the way fate plays a hand in bring them their mates.

This past week saw a great deal of change in the US. We actually swore in a female Vice President, never mind all the other firsts involved there! Then there was the somewhat hidden footnote for history, Joseph Biden is the first Catholic president since JFK. That’s worth taking note of. If it wasn’t for his using a family Bible for taking the oath, many people might not know that.

This year was the first time my husband and I watched an inauguration on TV. Previous years, we just didn’t have the time or perhaps the interest. In this year, facing a resurgence of the Coronovirus, we all need to pay better attention to what is going on around us.

This is one of my favorite Willow Bend books even though I didn't have much love for Margo when I started reading it. The drool worthy Italian Alpha Salvatore, the strong, snarky and sometimes brutal Enforcer Margo, a missing sister, a rogue lone wolf and of course the ever not so lovable Julian.

Mason is the Alpha who grants Salvatore entry to the US to search for his sister and Margo is the enforcer who collects him from the airport and escorts him to Willow Bend. A trip that is quite amusing as Margo takes offense at just about everything Salvatore says.

The search for the Alpha's sister brings forth a realization that is not in the least comforting. Not to the enforcers and certainly not to Mason.

For Margo another unsettling truth could mean her death, but maybe for a chance at something more if she is willing to take it.

We meet a lot of enforcers in this one, including the powerful and mysterious Julian. Plenty of interaction with Mason and Willow Bend including a showdown or two with Margo's mother.

I was waiting for this book since book one where I originally read about Margo. The prequel Wolf At Law came out after book 1 so if you start that book first she's mentioned in it. Margo hasn't had it easy. Too dominant to remain safely in the pack under the old Alpha Toman, Margo was sent off to boarding school and to become a lone wolf when she was young. It was the only way to guarantee her survival with an Alpha known for having his wolves with alpha potential disappear. She's taken her job as an Enforcer seriously and practices tough love as it's the only way to teach the newly lone wolves how to survive in the human world without their pack. Problem is her lone wolves are disappearing and the enforcers are starting to see a pattern. Margo is on the trail trying to find out if someone's after her charges.

Salvatore is on very dangerous ground. As the Alpha of all the packs in Italy he's very strong. But now he needs permission from the 5 American packs to enter their territory and look for his wayward sister. No Alpha wants an Alpha traveling through their territory. Salvatore is given an Enforcer to escort him while he investigates whether his sister willingly left Italy with her lover, or if her lover kidnapped her.

I absolutely loved this book. Margo was so strong in book one that I wasn't sure how the author was going to be able to soften her up to allow her to fall for someone. I think Salvatore couldn't be any more perfect of a choice and I loved following their journey

My introduction to Heather Long was her Fevered series, and I was hooked. I next began the Wolves of Willow Bend and now watch impatiently for new releases in both series. As usual, this book totally captivated me. One of my favorite scenes is when Margo and Salvatore shifted, played and hunted together. It was a joy to read. Long brings a balance of passion, suspense and charisma to her works. I totally recommend this book and series.

Margo, a lone wolf Enforcer, is assigned to accompany an Alpha from Italy into Willow Bend territory. Salvatore is looking for his sister, who left Italy with a USA lone wolf without letting anyone know. Margo has been looking for missing wolves, and is disgruntled about having to delay that job to babysit a foreign alpha. But they quickly discover a connection between Salvatore's sister and the increasing number of missing wolves and humans. And even though it breaks all the rules and leaves her facing a death sentence herself, Margo also finds she is irresistibly drawn to the stubborn and powerful Alpha, who plays by a different set of rules entirely-his own

SURPRISE!

I’m on Prillon Prime for a surprise party. Me, the unmated Earth girl, a guest of the queen! I want to dress up and have fun. Not trip over my own two feet and fall into the arms of two of the hottest alien warriors I’ve ever seen. Ever.

What happens on Prillon Prime stays on Prillon Prime. Before they touch me I make it clear that I’m not looking for a mate. Or two. I have to go back to The Colony. My life is there.

But Prillon warriors are notorious for fighting for what they want. Apparently, what these two want… is me.

Lucy just want a fling. She picks two Prillons at a party and makes her wishes clear; two nights then she's going home. As if. Nik and Sam are not going to play that game. Although this is in the Interstellar Brides series Lucy is not a bride. She is mated without testing but it's definitely a true mating. Very enjoyable twist to the usual plot and Prillons are so hot.

I , once again couldn't hardly put it down til I hit the end. I love this series. I read everything book I can in this saga, each time I enter this world it pulls me in and I feel like I know everyone and am once again visiting my friends to see what new adventure is going on. The love between everyone is palpable. They seem so real and come off the page. I am happy for Lucy, can't wait to hear how the Spa goes, dying to hear how Braun's love life is going. Don't ever stop...I even want to see DR. Helion get laid...lol! Please , please do Warden Edgar soon ...💋💓

Get ready to catch up with most of your favorite heroines at the Queen of Priors surprise birthday party. I don't want to spoil too much, but you'll never think of The Electric Slide the same way again. And of course, the lovely Lucy meets her perfect match-es in a sexy Prior ambassador and is personal guard. We also learn who the next Bachelor Beast is going to be. And he can SING! Yay! Also, the abrasive Dr. Helior gets schooled by the human female Cyborg siren, Gwen Fernandez and her Forsian cyborg mate. He is creeping ever closer to his own story, and I can't wait! Someday soon the good doctor is going to come up against the uncontrollable chaotic force that is his human mate.

Just as good as the last. But I want more. I wish there was a better update on the Colony. I feel like they are still struggling to get brides. It would be great if one of the brides came up with a calendar idea. Also since there is no guarantee of a Bachelor Beast finding his mate, it would be cool to have three beasts on the show at once. So there would be a possibility of one successful match, but if there was more....it would be a hat trick. I liked Bachelor Beast, it was more out of the box than what has been done in the past. I like that she doesn't leave any questions left unanswered when the book is finished. Can't for the next installment.
