When Becka manages to escape her kidnapper, she finds herself asking help of the man with the nice brown eyes. Stavos can’t say no, not when he knows Becka is his mate, but he does have one dilemma when it comes to claiming her. He’ll have to find a way for her bear his touch.
Fake Mated to the Wolf by Milly Taiden
Looking for a mate to bring to a party? Wedding? Holiday gathering? Mates Fur Hire is right for you? But what happens when your fake mate ends up being your real one?
The Witch, The Werewolf and The Waitress by Kate Baxter
For centuries, lowman, Idago has been Ellie Curtis’s prison. A vengeful witch cursed her with immortality and locked her within the confines of Lowman’s borders, sealing Ellie off from most of civilization for eternity. She’s learned to make the most of it. But when she meets a cocky werewolf who’s part of the elite supernatural law enforcement group, all bets are off…
Colin instantly knew that Ellie was his mate, but when he discovers her secret, he’s determined to help set her free. But in doing so, he might just lose the one thing he knows he can’t live without (Goodreads).
The slap rocked her, and not for the first time Becka tasted blood.
The first book is Bearing his touch by Eve Langlais was also one of my favourites out of this anthology. I found the first few pages quite gripping with action and tension. Our hero, Stavros is an ex-cop Bear shifter. I liked that the Bear and Man had the same mind and had some humorous inner dialogue between the two. Becka our heroine wasn’t physically strong, but she was resilient and emotionally very strong. I really liked that about her. But I felt that the story was a little rushed and it became very unrealistic especially after Becka was physically abused.
The second novella was by Milly Taiden. I think this one was my favourite story to sink my teeth into. Shawna is definitely a girl with a strong personality which I love in a heroine. Her romance with Hawke was pretty good and it had evolved enough in the short novella. This made up for some of the less engaging scenes and the scenes where they got to the bottom of the mystery phone calls.
The last novella was by Kate Baxter. This was basically straight fated mates story where Ellie (who’s the waitress) has a spell on her that a witch has cast on her years ago that binds her to the land where she can’t leave. Then she meets Collin who eventually does the heavy lifting on breaking the curse for her. It was good but it was also very predictable.
