It’s the book you’ve been waiting for!
Don’t miss the stunning conclusion to the Guardians of the Wolves!
USA Today Bestselling Author
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…
Packs attacked. Humans forced to turn. Enforcers murdered.
Julian has been juggling the conflict without a real target for months, they always seem to be just one step behind the Volchitsa and even the wolves they’ve captured can’t tell them enough. With the fate of the packs resting squarely on his shoulders, Julian, the Chief Enforcer, will swallow his pride to seek out the one wolf he knows can help them all, the one who seems to know all the players, who can think like them…if anyone can find the Volchitsa it’s the ghost he’s hunted for decades…
Oh what a tangled web! This book takes us on a journey through past and present. Written with glimpses of history woven into the lives of Julian and Dallas starting in 1971 and progressing to the present.
Now Julian has always been a bit mysterious, and no one really knows much about him outside his chief enforcer role. This book changes all that and more.
We’ve seen glimpses of Dallas especially where Chrystal is concerned and we’ve seen her with Julian on one memorable occasion. Now a truce needs to be formed and a solution found to the Volchitsa problem, for which it appears Dallas may hold the key.
The pressure is on and this book is one OMG after another. However it is the past that truly engages me. A young Dallas and an enforcer named Julian.
This is a favorite scene early in the book.
Dropping onto the chair next to her, he flipped open the cooler. A half dozen bottles were inside, tucked into a bed of ice. “Expecting company?”
“I expected you a week ago,” she answered, then tilted her bottle up for another drink. “What kept you?”
Amused, even though he should be livid, Julian pulled a beer out and opened it. “You relocated without notifying me.” If she had notified him, there would have been a message with the service. “You had the number you were required to call.”
A smile curved her lips, and he could imagine her throaty chuckle though she didn’t make a sound.
“But you didn’t call it,” he said, popping the cap off and tossing it into the bin just inside the door. “I check my messages daily.”
“You are so very responsible.” Dallas shrugged.
“You like having that power—where are we? What are we doing? Did we ask if we could have dessert before dinner?”
“You’re not a child, Dallas.” He lifted his bottle, then tapped hers when she met him halfway. “Don’t act like one.”
“Did I touch a nerve?” The invitation to play curled within her tone.
As delightful an offer as she was making, he couldn’t accept. “When you relocate, you call it in. Whether it’s a state, a beach, or a block away—you call. You provide the address and the date you intend to move. It’s not about control.”
“Bullshit,” she replied without an ounce of rancor. “It’s all about control. I’m alone. I answer to no one…except you, of course. I’m to answer to you, because you want to put a leash on me and snap tight to my collar.”
Laughter rumbling in his chest, Julian shook his head. “Woman, I wouldn’t dare put a leash on you. You’d chew through my arm.”
“And don’t you forget it.” She sat forward and swung around to face him. Her bare legs slid against his denim covered ones. “So can we stop pretending that you’re only checking in on me for duty?”
Heather Long. Ghost Wolf (Kindle Locations 902-917). Heather Long. Kindle Edition.
I expected this book to be hot in more ways than one and trust me it surpasses all expectations. There is shock and surprise as Julian and Dallas spar verbally and physically.
Truths beyond games, a trial, an Alpha Conclave and more send this book to the top of my all time favorites.
