Gillian Whitford, darling of Willow Bend, brings out the protective instincts in all the dominants, but none more so than Owen Chase, the pack’s Hunter. A loner by nature and calling, Owen spends less time with his pack mates and more time on the borders of their land. Not even the change in the Alpha and the swearing of a new oath kept him around long.
Winds of change still drift through Willow Bend as they adjust to their new Alpha. When the Hudson River pack requests a fill-in healer to replace their own, Gillian, journeymen apprentice to their Pack healer, is the obvious choice to help. Owen forbids her to accept, but the sweet natured wolf rebukes his selfishness and volunteers anyway.
Risking a challenge, Owen faces off against his Alpha to appeal her decision and finds himself charged with her safety. Now, the loner will be escorting one of his pack’s most precious into foreign lands. He’s all that stands between her and a dozen potential threats…and if he doesn’t stake his claim, he may lose more than his heart.
Wolf Claim is Heather Long‘s third installment in her Wolves of Willow Bend series. Wolf Claim broadens our knowledge of other packs as well as the dynamic between the healers and their pack. A great installment in this new paranormal series!
Long’s writing is addictive. The worlds flow with smooth consistency, like buttah. Her story telling truly does make you feel like part of this world and I don’t want to leave. So much so, I wanted to seriously kick this hero in the nuts. Maybe repeatedly. He was a flippin’ man idiot. The flip side is the healer heroine. She chased that idiot down until he had nowhere to go. That being said, Long did an amazing job giving the idiot, errr Owen a realistic feel with a genuine and honest reason he was the way he was. Their relationship dance was different and very entertaining to read!
The reverse chase on this was well done and I think the place I went slightly awry was my bizarre fascination with the Alpha from the other pack. I am now demanding a book about just him, because wowza. I want him! I am still thinking about him… *dreamy sigh* We learn about this other wolf pack to help solve a mystery! I love mysteries and it was another layer of joy added to this series.
This was a great paranormal romance with a traditional HEA. THANK GOODNESS! The light feel and realistic characters make this book and series a reread for me.
I rate Wolf Claim 4 out of 5 Bullets!
