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... 
Enforcer John Nelson has pulled double duty for months, keeping an eye on the Lone Wolves who are his charges as well as those that once answered to Margo Montgomery. More of a loner than most, he doesn't mind going months at a time without seeing another Enforcer as was his typical pattern or at least it was until the formation of the Three Rivers pack disrupted lives everywhere. Now he must divide his time between watching the upstarts and checking on his charges while working with the other Enforcers to anticipate the next move by the Russian Volchitsa. No Enforcer expected to find themselves among the hunted, but when they target the one wolf he can tolerate, John defies orders to go after her.
Hadley Sexton is a bit of a wild card even for an Enforcer, and she loves being unpredictable. More of a mother hen than she likes to admit, she keeps an eye on her Lone Wolves, and treats them more like family than charges...but when three Enforcers are brutally murdered over the course of three weeks, Hadley discovers someone has been shadowing her trail and they aren't alone. It is a dangerous game with a brutal enemy, one willing to kill the wolves she's sworn to protect to draw her out.
For Hadley, John will break every rule, but will he be in time?

Thunder Wolf is the 11th book in the Wolves of Willow Bend series by Heather Long. I did find I was not lost coming in at the 11th book. I have not read this series before at all. I do enjoy Heather Long's writing so decided to pick this one up, I am very glad I did. There is action, adventure, and true love along the way in this book. I am going to say there is a huge part of the picture I was missing but the love story itself is very easy to follow with out having read anything in this series before. It is the political points that will have you slightly confused coming in at the 11th book in the series. So for this review I have concentrated on the parts I understood, the main love story.
John is an enforcer. He has been kinda burning the candle at both ends trying to keep order and peace. He will go months without seeing another enforcer. He watches lone wolves, upstarts, and occasionally work with other enforcers. He also keeps tabs on the rival packs. He has a full plate. He really needs to let loose and have some fun sometimes.
Hadley is a wild card. She loves being unpredictable. She is rather perfect for John she doesn't let him get away with much, and is trouble with a capital T. She is kind, sweet, and wild all at the same time.
Over all there is a lot going on in this book. There are pack politics, along with love, and so much more. Over all I think true fans of the series will love this story. I loved the main love story itself. I would like to go back and see what I missed so I could better understand the politics in this book. And I would really love to see more in this world in the future.
