Well, this is the 2nd book in Byrd's Nocturne wolf series. I really enjoyed the first book, but this one was a chore to finish. The heroine irritated me from start to finish. She was a sniveling, whiny, weak-willed, childish...ooohhhh, it still burns me that she gets a runner and I don't!! The hero was WWAAAYYYY too sweet and patient for me. TEN YEARS?!?
He was willing to let this go on for 10 years???
Now, I really like Ms Byrd's other books. I think I have everything she's written in either e-

I love this series! Jillian and Jeremy are an amazing love story. I wish she had a little more faith in him, and wasn't so quick to believe everyone else when it came to their private lives. But I loved watching the story play out, I was rooting for Jeremy the whole time, to please not give up on her. I am glad they could triumph and over come the many obstacles that were thrown at them. So far this is my favorite love story in the series. Not mention, the heat, the hot, erotic, sexy scenes betw ...more

I love this series. This is the second book and just as exciting as the first.
At first I couldn't understand our Heroine's indecisiveness and lack of
trust in/with our Hero. But Ms. Byrd tied it all up really well, helped us
understand. This book was as action packed as the first. Now for
the third in the series!

Loved it! This is a series that has become one of my favorites. I love all the characters and their endearing stories. I accidentally started with the 4th one -and am glad I did otherwise I wouldn't have found this series- and will be devouring the 3rd one next. Hopefully there are more in the series to come.

Great storyline, great characters! One of the main characters from the first book of this series gets his own story here and it was well-told. The ending leaves just enough to let the reader know that the werewolf conflicts will continue! I was right, this is a great series!

The storyline with the rouges was really interesting, but the relationship between Jillian and Jeremy seemed to drag on a bit in what was almost a never ending circle.

Jillian is a Spirit Walker A.K.A witch/healer for Silvercrest wolf pack. Jeremy is a Blooddrunner. He hunts rogue wolves that have killed humans.

Jillian knows Jeremy is her destiny, but is afraid to give herself to him, heart and soul. Jeremy is a half blood that feels more comfortable living in the Alley as a BloodRunner than with the pack. Even though Jillian is his, he can't seem to convince her. So he goes on being a Runner, for 10 years.

The usual push and pull of sexual tension worked wel

I loved this book! I guess because the two main characters had a ten year crumpled relationship that entertained to no end. I also really liked Jeremy who was featured so much in the first book and already looked forward to his story. The book has a complex and indepth storyline that builds from the first book. The characters continue which I always prefer in these series because it makes them more interesting. I really didn't want to put the book down in some places because it truly is like bei ...more

This was pretty good, but I got tired of Jeremy and Jillian's back and forth about their relationship, or lack thereof. I think it could have been resolved fairly quickly with a bit of honest conversation. Alas, they both had issues with rejection and feeling they weren't loved. I think the action could have been more intense, and I wish there was more shapeshifting. Since the romance was a bit tedious, and the action wasn't as intense as I wanted, I was a bit disappointed. Plus I really don't l ...more

Jillian and Jeremy are long time friends and lovers. Jullian being a Spirit Walker for the pack is in high demand and needs to be careful on whom she loves. Jeremy not being able to trust his love for Julian walked away from her and has no idea how to get her back. This is a great second chance love story with some awesome wolves.

Fortunately there's still one more 'wolf' to go, can't get enough of Byrd's hunky shifters

Where many paranormal romance authors use the `shifters' mate bond as a jump start to connect strangers, author Rhyannon Byrd's gives the connection a different twist using the double edged knife of love and loss to add depth to the romance in Last Wolf Hunting (Silhouette Nocturne).

Here the leads, werewolf Bloodrunner Jeremy and Silvercrest pack SpiritWalker/witch/medicine-woman Jillian are not strangers.

Didn't do it for me.

There are 3 things that annoyed me so much with this book that not even the few lines about Brody can make the rating higher.
The first one is not a big deal, and I don't know why it annoys me. It's that the heroes in these books, DEMANDS that the woman comes! And by "comes" I don't mean as in "comes over" for a visit. Oh no, they are all "YOU!ORGASM!NOW!"
The second thing that annoys me is the way the author changes between using the first names and the last names trough

I liked this, but I wouldn't say I completely loved it. I started this novel feeling like I actually didn't want the two main characters to get together. I wanted the female character to win in her original desire to have nothing to do with the male character, Jeremy Burns. Which I find strange as I loved Jeremy's character in the first novel in the Bloodrunners series, "Last Wolf Standing", where he was a supporting character to the male lead. He seemed to have more humour in him then, and was ...more

He knew he loved ever since Jeremy Burns was 22 and that delicious little 18 year old, Jillian Murphy, waltzed into his life. But he was a womanizer by name, and their love was just never meant to be.

But what happens when Jeremy is forced to return to the pack, put in his number of kills (from his Blood Running days) and be accepted back into the community? He wouldn't do it if he had another choice. But as the new links between the kills and an elder in the pack come to life, the Blood Runners

While I really did enjoy the unfolding mystery of the rogue Lycans and the corrupt council of elders, I wanted to put the book down after the first chapter essentially ended with Jeremy dragging Jillian off into the woods and telling her he that he isn't going to respect her wishes not to be touched by him. Apparently she's given up her right to bodily autonomy by being physically attracted to the man. I couldn't stand all the miscommunication, indecisiveness, and butt-hurt feelings that took up ...more
Dani C. (Paulette's Papers)
I was slightly disappointed in this one. Jeremy and Jillian know that they are destined to be together. Yet because she is told he is sleeping around she refuses to have anything to do with him. So he stays away from the pack because he is a Bloodrunner and now he does sleeps around with other women. Jillian on the other hand stays a virgin but has to endure the women of the pack trying to kill her cause they are jealous she is Jeremy’s destined mate. This goes on for about ten years before Jere ...more
This was a quick and easy read. I liked Jeremy and I found Jillian too stupid to live on some occasions. She seemed to have no backbone, no ability to trust or figure things out for herself. She was ever so ready to believe the worst of the man she supposedly loved so much - it was as though she had no ability to see beyond the obvious. I didn't like that - especially because she was supposed to be such a good and powerful witch. I'd have expected her to have much more spirituality, practicality ...more
This book was hot. Even though it was less than 300 pages it has everything. Drama, Action, and some very hot sensual scenes. As I read the book though I can't help but think perhaps there is more to their friend Dylan than meets the eye. Some reason I can't help but think perhaps he's not the good guy everyone thinks he is. I can't wait to read the last book in this series "Last Wolf Watching" this series is the first I have read from this author (Rhyannon Byrd) and I must say I am going to try ...more

10 years??? They were apart for 10 years because Jillian believed a rumor??? Jesus, seems a bit unfair. No trust in a person she supposedly "loved" and Jeremy says HE doesn't deserve her? It's definitely the other way around. Jeremy's seduction skills with Jillian were mouth-watering. Not a lot of action in this book, which I didn't mind. I almost wish Jeremy would tell Jillian that she missed her chance when she believed a rumor AGAIN! It was clear the whole town was trying to sabotage him. Ove ...more

As i enjoyed the first book completely, i found the second book very repetitivee in how long it takes life mates to actually act on their feelings. In both books it happens right at the end instead of haing them bonded earlier and takling what comes with that love inside them.

So as i enjoyed this book and really like Jeremy's character i am a bit dissapointed in its originality of handling bonded mates. i do however like the story line and Byrds ability to continur the flow from the first book.
Michelle Tempted By Books
The nice thing about this series is the books are pretty quick reads. The bad thing is they are just way to scripted. Jeremy and Jillian want each other and to be frank I found it asinine. So she was young and believed a rumor. Now that Jeremy is back she won't love him because she is scared? Really this is the same bullshit as the first book. "I am scared to love even though I know you love me." LAME. The next book better have a more plausible story-line or I am doubtful I can read the newer tw ...more
Grrrr Jillian, she's so frustratingly closed. She demands openness and honesty but she is secretive and dishonest. Jeremy is so much more likable he just doesn't want to lose his heart to someone who clearly rejects him. I wanted to give this 2 stars but then I realized that the author made me really get involved with the characters. I do like the continuing story and all the Bloodrunners. So I will go with 3 stars. I am so caught up in the "who done it" that I could even lean to the 4 stars.

As with the first in the series, this book had me flying through it at a pace that even managed to make me miss some sleep. Unwilling to put it down until I had finished it and totally captivated from one page to the next. Rhyannon Byrd didn't fail to impress, yet again keeping me waiting for what would happen and scrambling to get the next book so I could continue into her world. Again, as with the first, five stars and two thumbs up!
The second in the Blood Runners series, this one focuses on Jillian, the Silvercrest Pack's Spirit Walker, or spiritual healer, and the Blood Runner Jeremy Burns. I enjoyed the more developed storyline of this novel better than the first, as we learned more about the inhabitants of Shadow Peak, the mountaintop town of the werewolves, and their oftentimes strained relationship with the half-breed inhabitants of Bloodrunner Alley.

Sexy, magicial and dangerous are the words that completely summarize this fantastic novel. Rhyannon has changed the way I look at paranormal romance and lycans. She paints a more realistic view of they lycan society: its rules, limitations and challenges. If you love lycans, sci-fi, fantasy or modern romance, pick this book up!

Loved the story line, loved Jeremy...Jillian not so much. She came across as whiny and immature, until the last 2 chapters. Then she actually grew a set and acted her age. This is the 3rd I've read in this series(actually read book 4 and went back to the beginning) and 2 out of 3 of the female leads leave ALOT to be desired.

How come I already know who the second culprit is? It's somewhat a gut feeling but then again somewhat obvious....
This book has it all to keep one hooked on the story. It has action, suspense, romance, etc. Excellent read! Enjoyed it.

This is the second book in the Bloodrunners series. It was a pretty quick read for me and I enjoyed it. I liked the characters -- Jeremy a bit more than Jillian. The series plot involving the rogue shifters moved ahead and had me wondering what was going to happen next.
