Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Series: Claimed by the Mate #3, Feral Passions #3
Title: Claimed by the Mate Vol 3
Author: Kate Douglas, AC Arthur
Publisher: St Martin’s, Griffin
Published: January 17th, 2017
This is the third and concluding volume in this series. Don’t let the cover fool you, neither story is not a menage romance but both involve shifters. I highly recommend reading the previous two volumes before reading this one as the stories are a three part series with this being the final part.
In Dangerous Passions, only two of the pack haven’t met and claimed their mates after running the Feral Passions Resort for a season – everyone else has met their mate or mates. Evan Dark met one woman who keeps visiting his dreams but he did little more than kiss her when she stayed at the resort earlier in the season. When she takes the initiative and turns up at the resort again their attraction is stronger than ever – but she’s human and isn’t aware of their shifter nature . . . . Traker Jakes is the alpha of the Trinity Alps pack and is amazed to meet his mate when pack mates bring the local florist in to tell her story. She’s in danger, escaping from an abusive pack and trouble is following close behind her. This story is full of dilemmas, action packed and with plenty of love interest too. It was a great finale to the series and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. The characters are well developed, easy to relate to and there are plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader enthralled. I’ll certainly be looking out for more books by Kate Douglas in future!
Bound to the Wolf has an intriguing plot and is a very different blend of shifter and mythology. However, for me, the detailed, steamy scenarios detracted from the flow of the story and didn’t enhance it in any way. I’d have preferred more story detail, but that’s probably just me! There were just too many inconsistencies in character behaviour, plot and events to make this a story I’d want to read again but that’s just me – others may well love it!
Many thanks to the publishers who gifted me a copy of this book through NetGalley without any obligations. This is my honest review after choosing to read it!
Kate Douglas and A.C. Arthur return with another scorching volume in their Claimed by the Mate series featuring two delicious, unforgettable novels in one!
In Dangerous Passions, Feral Passions Resort is the place for women to find romance and seduction with a hot, hard werewolf alpha mate. Traker Jakes and Evan Dark of the Trinity Alps pack have yet to find a strong, sexy BBW woman to consume with heady pleasure. But a special woman has arrived at Feral Passions Resort. The one who will burn with passion between these two sexy werewolf shifters. Desire will reach its peak…and the best these three can do is hold on to the sensations that erupt between them.
In Bound to the Wolf, Phelan Sava is a lycan werewolf shifter with a dark side to his soul. He lives for pleasure and revels in pain. But what burns for more than anything is a woman to dominate with his unbridled passion and desperate lust for good. Marena Panos is an attorney with a dark secret that follows her into the mountains and into the bed of a Phelan Sava. And when she is hunted by the feral beast that ravishes her body and claims her soul, Marena has no choice but to give in with no intention of ever looking back.
