What a Wolf Wants (Black Hills Wolves #2) by Heather Long


He runs alone...

Ryker Grey is used to being on the outside looking in. For more than fifty years, he has worked as Pack Enforcer for the Black Hills Wolves, rising to his rank swiftly. Compelled by duty and devotion to his people, he fought to keep them protected from within and without—earning a few enemies and fewer friends. Drew’s return has sparked healing in the fraying pack, but Ryker remains vigilant.

She needs a place to call her own...

Saja Lyons has spent her life studying cultures, but never really being a part of them. Completing a double specialty in psychology and sociology, she decides to take the three months after her graduation to find herself on a cross-country drive. She embraces the nomadic road trip until her car breaks down on a deserted stretch of road in the middle of nowhere South Dakota.

Two lonely lives collide in the cold...

Ryker catches Saja’s scent from a mile away, loneliness edged in fear, frustration, and utter femininity. He approaches her in order to lend her a hand and get her out of the pack’s way...the sooner she’s gone from Los Lobos, the safer the pack will be. When their gazes meet, her playful hostility arouses the hunter in him, and for the first time in fifty years, the enforcer tastes what it’s like to not be alone...

But what if the best thing that ever happened to him is a danger to the Black Hills Wolves?

My review:

If you like the strong silent type Ryker is the wolf for you.  Ryker lives away from the pack to keep them safe.  His best bud is a bear.  When in the course of his duties he hears a human stranded by the roadside right before a storm he has to try to get her moving along when that doesn’t work he takes her to his place.  Saja is a free spirit who has traveled the world meeting new people and discovering new things but she has never met anyone like Ryker. 
This is a short book with a lot packed into it.  I fell for Ryker in the first book - Wolf’s Return (Black Hills Wolves #1) by Rebecca Royce.  You could read this standalone but you would better understand Ryker and pack dynamics if you’ve read Wolf’s Return.
