Book Description via Goodreads
In Dire Needs by Stephanie Tyler, we get our first full look into the New York Times Best-Selling author’s brand new paranormal world.

(There is a prequel though, 
Dire Warnings.)

The alpha Dire wolves are the last six alive after the Extinction and they are all men. After the Extinction they also found that besides being the last ones alive they were immortal to.

We jump right into the novel, and plot with the opening page where we meet Rifter, the leader, if reluctant, of the Dire wolves. Rifter also happens to be tall, sexy as hell, and has supernatural powers. It is not long at all (first chapter actually) that he meets Gwen, a human woman in a were-bar and is instantly drawn to her.

Gwen is dying. Ever since she was little Gwen has had seizure’s and now they are getting more frequent and the doctors tell her that they will eventually kill her.

Gwen herself has spent the majority of her life working to become a doctor and has not really taken anything else into account in her life. She hasn’t done anything for fun so to speak, which is how she came to be sitting in a werewolf bar (not that she knew, yet), and taking the tall as hell, sexy as sin man home with her.

Unfortunately her sexy one night stand is ruined when a seizure hits, Rifter surprises himself by staying with her when he knows he should have left as soon as she stopped seizing.

From here on out our two characters are drawn to each other and when weretrappers—people who set out to kill the Dire wolves and by relation the werewolves as well—start trying to capture Gwen, for unknown reasons, Rifter takes her home to his and the other Dire wolves house. After all she is dying, so it isn’t like he will have any problems with her going out and telling people about them. Well that is what he tells himself anyway, but he and his Brother Wolf want Gwen with a need that Rifter can barely control.

Soon though it becomes quite clear what the reason for Gwen’s seizures are caused by when her father, a Dire wolf named Harm that was supposed to be king but did not want the title and left the other Dire’s therefore, betraying them, is captured and tells them of her.

This reveals the reason why the weretrappers and the witches who have allied themselves with them are trying so hard to capture her.

We get the point-of-view of most all of the Dire wolves in this novel, and Gwen as well. So there is some jumping back and forth, but nothing that is hard to follow along with and it also gives us a great look at the other characters and hints of what are going on in their personal lives.

I have to say one of my favorite characters was Vice. Though I really liked all of the Dire’s he was my favorite, you will have to read it to find out why though.

One thing that took a little getting used to was how the Dire’s referred to their wolves, calling them 'Brother Wolf', it is not so different that any other novel where the were character refers to their wolf as 'Wolf', but with the 'Brother' at the start it did take a little adjusting to get used to it—not a bad thing though.

Over all the Dire's are very sexual and aggressive men/wolves you can practically feel the sexual aggression and testosterone rolling off of the pages in some scenes of the book.

Altogether, the novel is full of plot, surprises, fight scenes and more than enough sexy love scenes making it a definite page turner.

I am looking forward to the second book in this series coming out to see what will happen next with the overall plot of the weretrapper/Dire wolves/werewolves, but also to find out how our next Dire falls in love and what his woman will be like. I would recommend this novel to anyone who loves a good paranormal read.
