Overview

Ranae is the youngest of the Buckleys-- the only girl among three powerful male siblings. Her restlessness and dominant nature affected her every relationship within Willow Bend, not to mention testing the patience of her Alpha. Apprenticeship to the Hunters fed her desire for a purpose. When her Alpha and eldest brother ask her to undertake a mission to the Yukon territory, she's thrilled at the opportunity to be useful. Clashing with the Diesel was the last thing she expected on the dangerous assignment.

Diesel, the oldest Alpha in the U.S. packs, lives a gray existence. The loss of his mate so many decades ago wears away at him until he doesn't give a damn about anything. The problems of the other packs are not his, and he prefers to be left in isolation. The arrival of the Chief Enforcer annoys him, but it is the wolf traveling with him who wakes the predator in Diesel. The scent of mate clings to her, but she rejects his overtures and challenges him on every level.

War may be coming for the Yukon, but Diesel's battle is very personal...

Although Heather Long is a new author for me, she has evidently been around for some time since she has a number of books in this series that come before this one. I really enjoyed it, I've already picked up several earlier titles. Great "World Building" with interesting plots, likeable characters that often appear from book to book. HAPPY READING!

Snow Wolf is book #9 in Heather Long's popular Wolves of Willow Bend series. If you love paranormal romance with a side of sexy Alpha shape shifting wolves then you should definitely add this series to your TBR list. This installment in the series takes us to the Yukon pack where we meet Diesel, the oldest alpha in all the US packs. Scarred and a loner since the loss of his pack years ago has left many to believe Diesel to be lost and behind in the times. When Ranae is sent along with the Chief Enforcer to warn Diesel about the attacks on the US packs Diesel immediately recognizes Ranae sent as his potential mate and he has no intention of letting her get away from him. I really enjoyed these two characters and getting to catch up with some previous characters. If you haven't read other books in this series don't worry as these books can each be read as a standalone. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys PNR and shape shifter romances. I received an eARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review and opinion. All ratings and opinions stated are my own.

Ranae and Diesel are two interesting perfect for each other characters. I have not read the rest of the willow bend series but now I have to! I was a little lost jumping into the series at book 9 so this does not work as a stand alone. But, I am happy and willing to go purchase every single book that's come beforehand because Ms. Long is an amazing writer and I know she's built an amazing world with amazing characters. Despite being a little lost to the overall story I really love Diesel and Ranae's story. I love how Heather Long develops her characters and shows them grow into these beautiful people. Heather is a master storyteller and I am so lucky to have found her stories.

Simply AMAZING!! I am a huge fan of Heather Long, and the Wolves of Willow Bend series is one of my absolute favorites. The newest addition to the series goes far and beyond my expectations. From our previous dealings with Ranae and Diesel, one might expect a story about a temperamental woman who can still act like a child, and a crotchety old man who is stuck in the past. I am thrilled to report this wasn't even remotely the case. The Ranae in this story has worked hard to atone for her previous transgressions and we even have the pleasure of seeing her mature further and come in to her own as a remarkable, capable, and clever woman. She is definitely fun to read about. Diesel is so much more than what he shows those in other packs. Although he was starting the fade, the Diesel we are introduced to is vibrant, strong, caring, capable, hilarious, and sexy as hell. You can tell from almost the start that he will be a fantastic mate. Learning more about him and his pack is such a pleasure. These two wolves are perfect for each other, and we get a front row seat to seeing how well they work together and how naturally they accept the other (without even a hint of boredom). The Yukon pack has a bad rap to the other packs, but they were just as much fun to learn about as Hudson River. You get to see the beautiful place they call Sanctuary and the people (the gossipy, but wise elders, the hilarious healer) were a treat as well. There were so many wonderful moments in this story that came together so beautifully. While I may have been weary of what this story might have entailed, I have been thoroughly blown away by the characters, the world, and the adventure. Bravo Ms. Long. This is one of your best yet, and I absolutely cannot wait to read on! I was given an advance copy in exchange for my honest review. Though in all fairness, I had already preordered my own copy of this story and I was just excited to read it earlier!! :-D

Another great addition to the Wolves of Willow Bend series! "Snow Wolf" is the fast paced story of Diesel, Alpha of the Yukon, and Ranae. When Ranae travels to the Yukon to deliver a message to Diesel, he recognizes her immediately as his mate, but Ranae takes a bit of convincing. I loved the interaction between Diesel and Ranae, actually between all of the characters. I can't wait for more of this series! While this is a stand-alone novel, reading the previous books would add to the enjoyment. There is a lot of backstory between the wolves and the packs. I was gifted with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

ELECTIC SHIFTER ROMANCE! Ranae, a hunter, is sent by her Alpha to carry a message to another pack in the Yukon. Her preconceived notions of the pack and it's alpha are not what she finds once she gets there. Diesel is the alpha of the Yukon pack, a pack unlike any other. Having distanced his emotions he is surprised to feel such a strong draw to the Hunter from another pack. The draw between these two was electric! I loved the give and take between Ranae and Diesel. They were perfectly matched with their strength, stubbornness and passions. Ranae is spunky, independent, and intelligent. Diesel is clever, charming, and alpha to the core. I really enjoyed seeing them both come to different compromises as the book went along. Excitement was a main factor of the book, from the sparks between Ranae and Diesel, to the hunt for the wolves causing so much damage to the different packs, to the different pack dynamics. The whole story was one fun twist after another and I really enjoyed so many of the little elements the author included to make the story shine. This is a fantastic adventure and shifter love story, I would easily recommend this one! Received a copy for an honest review.

Heather Long’s Snow Wolf is an amazing addition to the Wolves of Willow Bend Series. Willow Bend Hunter, Ranae Buckley, is sent on a mission by her alpha to Yukon territory to warn their alpha, Diesel, about the attacks by the Russian Pack on the U.S. Packs. Once she arrives, Diesel doesn’t plan on letting her go, needing to convince her that she is his mate. This contemporary PNR is suitable for adult audiences. I loved Snow Wolf. I read a lot of shapeshifter novels. This one was captivating and thrilling. Heather Long does an incredible job with her descriptions making the story easy to visualize. I love Diesel. Being the oldest U.S. pack Alpha, he has a reputation of being old-fashioned and behind the times. Boy did they have that wrong. He is a crafty alpha that keeps his cards hidden. There is a lot more to Diesel then meets the eye. I like how Diesel got his name; I also, like his reasoning for Ranae’s nickname. I enjoyed Renae’s character. She is a strong alpha female. She is trying to atone for past mistakes. She is loyal and loves her family. She is a good Hunter. I enjoyed the ending; I found what Diesel gave to Mason amusing. I look forward to the next book in the series. Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review.

Woo hoo! What a ride! Diesel, the oldest Alpha in the U.S. packs, is about to have his world shaken up by Ranae Buckley a young hunter/envoy from the Willow Bend pack. Ranae is about to have her perception of the Yukon pack shook up. When these two meet worlds collide. I was worried that Diesel would be too old and set in his ways to fully appreciate Ranae. But I should have known better. Ranae would take delight in bringing Diesel kicking and screaming back to life. I love Diesels sense of humor and the fact that Ranae doesn’t just roll over for him. The are some surprising revelations about the enforcer Julian and I hope we get his story soon. I love this world and the folks who live in it. Well done Heather Long.

I did receive a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review. OMG another hit my this fabulous author...... Ranae Buckley is send with Jullian the chief enforcer, to give a message to Diesel the Yukon Alpha... Well let's just say, Ranae and Diesel have sparks that fly between them. Ranae denies the attraction at first but Diesel, Wolf is saying MATE. This was a great story how how it plays out.... Diesel is such a great Alpha but is a very sweet man, you will fall in love with him.... We also learn more about Ranae and why she is the way she is..... We also learn more about Jullian, Well a little bit, Ms. Long is a tease lol....... There is action, Romance and of course twists and turns in this book..... Will it work out with Diesel and Ranae? Will they become Mates???? All I will say, is you will love it and you will love Diesel. There is some HOT love scenes and of course some sweet scenes and some funny scenes. Just a great book... Wish I could give it more then five stars.

Ranae Buckley still struggles with her temper. But her alpha needs her for a mission in wild, snowy Alaska. She's to trace the Yukon alpha, make sure he's still on control and report back. When she finally makes it to his outpost, he and his pack are not what they would appear. With an advanced subterranean hideout for the vulnerable of the pack, they have a vast underground network and sentries. The alpha may be older than her but he is not the technophobe he leads everyone to believe! Diesel fears he is beginning to fade into his beast, just as his mate did decades ago. Perhaps that would be best for his people, his pack. But when he meets the lovely but oh so irritating Ranae his beast perks up and he struggles with the realisation that he and Ranae have mate potential. But first there is the small matter of an invasion by a Russian pack, infections to stave off and a pack to calm. Diesel may be the oldest so far of the Alphas but he is in now way crumbly! He is ageing just fine thank you! Ranae has enough gumption to challenge him and not get disciplined for it. I love the way she..ahem gets him to agree to her plans - she just totally subverts him LOL. Ranae is aware of her shortcomings and is attempting to curb her temper but there are times when you know that temper will come in handy! Another wonderfully crafted and action packed story!!
