Tempting His Mate by Savannah Stuart
Series: Crescent Moon Book # 3
Author: Savannah Stuart/Katie Reus
She ran from him once…Wild one night stands are not Ella Hayes’s style, but with her confidence at rock bottom after a devastating betrayal and her painful departure from her jaguar pride, who could blame her for falling into bed with a sexy wolf? She never thought she’d see him again. And never in her craziest dreams did she expect to come face-to-face with him on her first day with the Kincaid wolf pack. Sleeping with Asher had been one of the most intense experiences of her life—but now she wonders if they could have more. He’s not letting her go again…Tired of life as a lone wolf, shifter Asher has joined his cousin’s pack. The last person he expected to see was the sexy woman who ran out on him in the middle of the most incredible night of his life. The Ella he meets now is nothing like the wild, sensual woman he let his guard down with, but he likes both sides of the complicated female. But now somebody—or something—sinister is targeting Ella, and Asher moves quickly to get her under his roof and under his protection. Keeping the sexy female safe and proving they belong together are two missions he doesn’t plan to fail. Because this time, he’s playing for keeps.
Review: First off, Tempting His Mate is written by Katie Reus writing under the name Savannah Stuart. While I have only just stumbled on her as an author, Tempting His Mate is my first book by her. And I have to say that this was just enough to give me a brief taste of her writing style. That’s really all it was – a taste – because it is only a novella. That is really my major critique on this one too, because I really wanted more.
The story was a fast, fun read, and it was an excellent paranormal story. I loved the characters, and I wish it had been a bit more drawn out so that I could have spent a little more time with them…:) Needless to say though, I will definitely be checking out more titles from this author – including the previous books in this series!
