Wolf on the Hunt by N.J. Walters

In the hunt for love, there’s no going halfway.

Drawn to Salvation by her passion for nature, Gray Everson’s looking forward to some peace and quiet to work on her paintings. She didn’t expect hunters shooting up the forest around the cabin she rented. And she certainly didn’t expect to find a wounded wolf.

It’s only after Gray sends the hunters packing that she realizes the creature hidden in her cabin is no ordinary wolf. He’s a ruggedly handsome man with an extraordinary ability Gray thought only existed in fiction.

Louis LaForge has given up on finding a mate and channels all his energy into protecting his pack. But his instant attraction to a skittish artist is more than simple lust. There’s something about Gray he just can’t put his finger on—until he gets close enough to touch her.

Louis is sure of what he wants, but pushing Gray too far, too fast is risky. The hunters aren’t going away peacefully, and Louis’s former pack is coming for him. When the final battle comes, there will be only one way to protect everyone he loves.

Warning: Contains an artist who has a secret even she doesn’t know she’s hiding, and a werewolf who’s resigned to being lonely—until she fills his life with vibrant color.

One of the best things about reading books by your favorite authors is that you know whether or not you can pick up a book in the middle of a series and read it without being lost. As someone who has read several of Walters series, I knew that when I started the Salvation Pack series at book four I could do so with very little to no confusion. Despite not having a chance to go back and read the first three books in the series yet (even though I bought them), I had no qualms about reading Wolf on the Hunt. I love Walters’ writing style and knew without a doubt that I would love this book too. I was right.

As the last single wolf standing from the founders of the Salvation Pack, Louis LaForge has accepted his fate to remain single for the remainder of his life. He takes pride in being the pack’s protector and will defend all of its members with his very last breath if need be. Despite his father’s best efforts, he harbors only love and loyalty to his brother and Alpha, Jacque, and this merely strengthens his resolve to protect the pack. But when Louis is caught unaware by a group of hunters, he ends up receiving multiple bullet wounds, losing blood, and not enough time to heal as the hunters are closing in on him. Fortunately, he’s close to Anny’s old house and the new renter is a compassionate artist who cannot abide the thought of the hunters killing the injured wolf. Even though she knows she’s nuts for trying to help a wild animal, Gray helps the wolf inside and manages to hide him from the hunters. She soon realizes that there is more to the wolf than it seems and confronts it/him about what it truly is. I’m not sure who was shocked more when Louis shifted to his human form, but catching the Gray’s scent made continuing to lie to her out of the question. But learning that shifters are real is only the first of many revelations that Gray experiences and they rock the entire foundation of her world. Which is just as well because life will never be the same again for Gray now that Louis has discovered his mate.

Although this is only the second book in the series I’ve read, I had no issues with keeping up with the storyline. Walters does an excellent job of giving you enough background info on the series with each installment that you don’t necessarily have to start at the beginning. That said, I cannot wait to read them all. I loved the twist on who Gray is that the author introduced because it set the series up for additional installments now that all five of the men have mated. This is joyful news for me because I love this author’s paranormal romances, so anytime I can get my hands on more, it’s always a good thing. Considering that Louis was the focus of this installment, it made sense that things between the Salvation Pack and Louis and Jacque’s father finally came to a head. I loved the intensity of the action in Wolf on the Hunt and was actually worried at times during the final fight scene because even though I know this author always gives her readers a happy ending, I couldn’t help but worry. That’s how action-packed and fast moving the events were at the end. While the fight ultimately ended the way I hoped, it was not without significant bloodshed on both sides. It was awesome! I loved Wolf on the Hunt and cannot wait to see where Wolf on a Mission takes the Salvation Pack next.

Once upon a time N.J. had the idea that she would like to quit her job at the bookstore, sell everything she owned, leave her hometown, and write romance novels in a place where no one knew her. And she did. Two years later, she went back to the bookstore and her hometown and settled in for another seven years.

One day she gave notice at her job on a Friday morning. On Sunday afternoon, she received a tentative acceptance for her first erotic romance novel and life would never be the same. N.J. has always been a voracious reader, and now she spends her days writing novels of her own. Vampires, werewolves, dragons, time-travelers, seductive handymen, and next-door neighbors with smoldering good looks—all vie for her attention. It’s a tough life, but someone’s got to live it.
