New Release Review! Wolf’s Mate (Shifter Rogues #1) Celia Kyle
Wolf's Mate - Celia Kyle

 

 

Danger shouldn't be this sexy...

Cougar shifter Abby Carter always plays it safe. That's why she's an accountant--no excitement, no danger, and no cocky alpha males. She loves her quiet life, but fate has other plans. When Abby uncovers the shady dealings of an anti-shifter organization, she'll have to trust the too-sexy-for-her-peace-of-mind werewolf Declan Reed... or end up six feet under.

Declan Reed is starting over. After two years with Shifter Operations Command, it's time to put his past behind him. Now Declan is the only thing standing between the gorgeous Abby and an early grave, and if he's going to have any chance of keeping her alive, he'll have to embrace the darkness he's fought to keep at bay. But first he has to convince Abby that there's no safer place in the world than the arms of a big bad werewolf.

 

 

Celia Kyles’ Wolf’s Mate is the first book in her new Shifter Rogues series and I was completely thrilled with this new world. There were lots of strong, fascinating characters that easily drew me into their world and I am not embarrassed to say that I am hooked and will definitely be looking for more. The team seems to be one of misfits that scream bad boys and had me melting on the spot with their attitudes and ‘take it or leave it’ vibes that poured from the pages.  Declan and Abby had lots of electrifying chemistry to heat things up and but were real and not so easy to give in to those feelings while they were on the run, which made the romance really interesting right along with all the suspense building thrills. Speaking of which there were lots of twists that kept me guessing and lots of action ensured that there was never a dull moment which added to the anticipation and kept me glued to the pages.

 

I have always been a real fan of Celia Kyles’ work and this new world is certainly one that I will be following as she made it thrilling and romantic but gave her characters real personalities that seemed to jump off the pages and make each character uniquely individual and had me wanting to get to know them better. And the world is full of mysteries to keep readers guessing at real intentions of some of the characters and wondering just how well this team will function. The dialogue she used also added to the realistic feel of this team and added some humor as well. Needless to say, I am definitely looking forward to reading Tiger’s Claim when it releases in October.

Violence is never the answer… unless you’re a Preor warrior.

 

 

Rendan sen Tarkan, Offense Master to the Preor Third Fleet, has found his human mate. She is small compared to him, but her curves, delicious scent, and sky blue eyes call out to his soul. He has waited for a female for over two centuries and he will fight—kill—any who dare attempt to take her. Even one of his own males.

 

One moment Carla Butler was unemployed and the next she was on the Preor battleship, working as a nurse for human-Preor mates. Oh, and the next moment? That was when she found her sexy, alien pink-scaled mate. Then she watched the muscular dragon shifter get beat to hell. And then she was assigned a condo in Preor Tower on Earth. The person in the condo next door? That sexy, alien pink-scaled male.

 

Learning about the proud alien warrior isn’t trouble free, but it’s easier than almost dying. Yeah, almost. But the Preor who tried to end her life? Well, he doesn’t quit easily. She only hopes Rendan is there to save her when the alien tries to end her life once again.

Rendan follows right on the heels of Kozav. It gives us conflict, prejudice, honesty, and love.

 

WOW. This one was emotional. Oh My! I really enjoyed this story. We get the back story for both our main characters which gives depth to them and their romance. Carla and Rendan both have suffered in one way or another. Rendan’s career makes things a little more difficult, but they eventually find their way.

 

The Knowing is what drives the series and helps these characters come together. Each story is different, the characters each have different pasts and issues to work through, the world building is gradually, and the romance is hot and steamy.

 

Rated: 4 Stars

Kozav found his mate and then he lost her. Now it’s time to hunt…

 

Grace Hall is a nurse, not a doctor. But when five Preor warriors are brought to the emergency room and the doctors don’t do a darn thing for them, she steps forward. Sure, they are aliens with massive wings who turn into dragons whenever they wish, but they still look human-ish. One particular warrior draws her more than the others. His teal wings, muscular body, and pain-glazed eyes have her bouncing between two desires—needing his touch and desperation to heal him. When she’s filled with the knowledge to treat the males, Grace gets to work. She’s going to save the Preor males, even if it kills her. When she loses consciousness after healing them, she realizes it just might.

 

Kozav sen Aghin, Primary Warrior of the Preor Third Fleet, wakes weaker than a hatchling on the Preor battleship. He’s fully healed yet plagued by a feeling that something is wrong. And something is… Kozav found his mate on Earth and she was left behind—alone and unprotected. Unacceptable. Kozav still carries the guilt for his actions during the great conflict and he is determined not to fail so greatly again. The curvaceous, green-eyed, dark haired human female is his to protect, his to claim and his to keep.

 

When danger intrudes and someone attempts to take Grace from his life, Kozav is prepared to do whatever it takes to bring Grace back to his side. Even if it means killing one of his own. Or will it be Kozav with a sword through his chest? For Grace’s sake, he hopes not.

The Preor Warriors have arrived on Earth (dragon shifters), but not everyone is happy to have them their even some of the Preor don’t want to be their.

 

Grace is a nurse, overworked, and underpaid. She’s stubborn, cares about her mom, and is doing everything to keep her and her mother together. Kozav is a Preor Warrior.

 

Grace was easy to like and relate too. She’s kind and devoted to her sick mother. Kozav is slighty clueless when it comes to human females, but he tries. These two where a great couple. I like that they took time to know each other and didn’t give into the insta-lust/love. Their romance is budding and growing without being forced. Their’s also a little action to keep things entertaining.

 

I’m enjoying the Dragons of Preor series. They may be short and quick, but they pack a lot into them.

 

Rated: 4 Stars

Wolf's Mate
Wolf's Mate - Celia Kyle


A classic tale of species racism and fated mates, Wolf's Mate by Celia Kyle kicks off her new Shifters Rogues series with a bang. Abby, a cougar shifter with a tragic past, finds herself embroiled in a battle she wasn't prepared for. She is just an accountant after all. Declan is all about death and destruction, so he was fully prepared for the battle. He was NOT expecting to meet his mate.

The plot had potential. I liked the racist angle about the United Humanity group attempting to kill all shifters. It kind of reminded me of the old school PNR books and TV shows with hunters who killed the vampires, shifters, and demons. Abby's job as an accountant was a plus as well because I love heroines who have math or science related jobs. It shows women as smart and capable. The danger is certainly ever present once Abby realizes she caught her boss in a big accounting lie since he was funneling money to United Humanity. Now they want her and SHOC, the group Declan works for, also want her. No one seems to care if they get her alive though. Well, no one but Declan.

I like the idea of SHOC. These are not good guys out to save the world. The men and women of SHOC were 'encouraged' to use their talents for hunting and killing to help the shifter community, less they be put in shifter prison for their crimes. None of them are bleeding hearts who are standing up for shifters because they want to help. It was refreshing to have a group of bad boys doing good for bad reasons. Of course, Declan's reasons change when his wolf falls for Abby.
A little creepy, a hint psychotic, but beneath it all was an instinctual need to simply have. All of her.

One thing I love about shifter stories is the fated mates trope. I just have always loved the idea. Declan and Abby both resist the idea for a time, which I appreciate because it shows that they are at least partially human!

You have lots of supporting characters and quite frankly, you are never quite sure who you can trust. I really enjoyed that aspect because it adds even more tension to the plot. You have the obvious danger from the United Humanity group, but then there is the hidden possible dangers from other characters. Pike and Cole both gave me a untrustworthy vibe that had me questioning their motives!

I think what bothered me the most was the constant bickering with their shifter half. Both Abby and Declan spend a LOT of time arguing and fighting with their animal and it just made the book drag for me. I understand the need to show that the human and the animal are 2 separate entities in a body, but the constant 'talk' between human and beast was disruptive to the flow of the plot in my opinion. However, this is me being very nit-picky. I am not sure it would have bothered me so much if I wasn't feeling a bit cranky. And honestly, that was really the only thing I didn't love about the story.

I think the Shifters Rogue series has potential. While there was a thing or two I didn't like with Wolf's Mate, I do think I will continue with the series because I am interested in how Kyle will play out all the characters. Cole's story is next and I am very interested in who will catch this tiger!

Celia Kyle tells The Book Disciple....

Top 5 reasons shifter romances rock!
  1. Growly, over the top alpha heroes.
  2. Possessive heroes who refuse to let their ladies go once they find them.
  3. A shifter’s bone-deep desire to protect those they love. No one is going to hurt a shifter’s family or loved ones!
  4. Mating for life. I love that a shifter finds their mate and then that’s it for them.
  5. The dual nature of a shifter and how the human half interacts with the animal half. It definitely makes for some fun internal “conversations” between the two.
