Bayou Wolf (Wolves of Willow Bend #5) by Heather Long

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 meeting. Having so many powerful dominants in one place brings challenges and hazards—no protocol can be left unturned and none feels it more than Lincoln Buckley, charged by his Alpha to be the liaison with the Delta Crescent Alpha, the fierce and wildly beautiful Serafina Andre.

Serafina stands apart from her ‘fellow’ Alphas, the only female to hold such sway over a North American pack, she has only the Delta Crescent’s interests in mind and expects the challenges from the other male Alphas, dominants all, in their need to protect the females. It doesn’t surprise her in the least to find the wolf assigned to her as liaison has also been tasked with her protection—what does startle her is the interest she experiences with him.

An Alpha doesn’t submit, no matter how much the woman in her craves him, too. Her pack must come first, especially since what Willow Bend proposes is insanity…

My review:
All 5 North American Alphas are meeting in Willow Bend to discuss the future of the rogue pack (discovered in Rogue Wolf - Wolves of Willow Bend #4)There are protocols and posturing and of course politics.   
When you are the Alpha of one of the biggest packs in North America and female your love life is going to take a back seat or so Serafina has found.  Time is limited due to duties and male egos are fragile.  Lincoln Buckley is charged by his Alpha to be the liaison with the Delta Crescent Alpha. I will admit to not liking Linc Buckley very much in previous books so I was delighted to see him taken down by a female Alpha. He has come to the realization (probably at the fists of his brothers) that perhaps his earlier actions/reactions may have been wrong.  Also meeting your mate has a way of messing with your mind. 
Linc is Alpha enough to stand by and up for Sera but beta enough not to want her position.  This is a delicate dance and Heather Long handles it with aplomb.  I LOVE this series.
