Synopsis

Meet the Tate brothers… and the mates fate has in store for them.

Crying Wolf
Grace Shaw is on the run from her crazy ex-boyfriend who refuses to believe their relationship is over. He’s a cop and is willing to use police resources to track her down. So Grace comes up with a plan and tricks his fellow brothers in blue into thinking he is crying wolf a couple of times when he’s reported her missing. Little does she know she’ll go running into the arms of a real wolf when she finally makes her escape for real.

She just wants to be left alone, but then she meets Hunter Tate – the alpha of the Black River Pack. Grace tries to hold Hunter at arm’s length, but there’s just no reasoning with an alpha male werewolf who insists she’s his mate.

Shoot for the Moon
Eliza Reve knows that her ability to dream of future events sets her apart from others. Her gift became a curse when she wasn’t able to save her mother or the alpha’s son and she found herself exiled – a lone wolf. When she joins the Black River Pack, Eliza vows never to reveal her talent to anyone. Not even the man who has walked in her dreams for years.

Spencer Tate is her mate, but her visions have told her that he will renounce her. When he doesn’t recognize her as his mate, she agrees to the no-strings-attached affair he offers because she thinks it’s the most she can hope for. Although her heart breaks as she falls deeper in love with him, she wants to spend as many days with Spencer as possible before he kicks her out of his life.

When Spencer finally comes to his senses, he has his work cut out for him to convince Eliza that he wants her forever. When another she-wolf insists she’s his mate instead, things get even more complicated. But Spencer isn’t the alpha’s second and enforcer because he isn’t willing to fight for what’s his, and he refuses to settle for anything less than Eliza as his marked and claimed mate.

Thrown to the Wolves
Annora Channing’s entire world changes the moment she discovers she’s a bear shifter. With mated wolves for parents, she should have been a wolf also. When the man she grew up thinking was her father realizes she isn’t his daughter, he devises a plan to use her existence to his advantage in a way that will get her out from under his roof.

When her situation goes from bad to worse, Annora escapes but is badly injured in the process. Luckily, Elias Reve comes to her rescue while on his way to Wolf’s Point and the daughter he lost years ago. With nowhere else to go and nobody to turn to, Annora joins him on his journey and ends up running smack-dab into the arms of her mate.

Parker Tate knows Annora is his the moment he lays eyes on her. When he manages to mate and mark her within hours of when they meet, he considers himself lucky. Then the trouble nipping at Annora’s heels finds her and Parker realizes the path to claiming his mate won’t be as easy as he thought – especially not with the bears involved

HOLY ALPHA MALE HOTNESS! I don’t typically read very many paranormal romances. Not really sure why but I guess that they don’t get recommended to me often. But I was in the mood for something a bit different to break up my reading. I came across a recommendation for this series and because I absolutely adored Rochelle’s Blythe College series it was a no brainer for me.

This series follows the lives of the Tate brothers and their journeys to claiming their fated mates. The brothers are wolf shifters. These are quick and exciting reads that I devoured in one sitting each.

Book One: Crying Wolf

Grace is on the run from an abusive boyfriend. Nothing has been easy for her. Her ex-boyfriend is a cop and she knows that he will be searching for her with every resource that he has. After being on the run for a long time she finally makes her way to Wolf Point and directly into the path of Hunter Tate.

Hunter Tate is the alpha of his pack. He personifies everything about being a leader – dominate, alpha, possessive and protective. As soon as he lays eyes of Grace he knows that he has met his mate. But he also recognises that Grace is scared of something and is holding herself back. He does not let the fact that she is human get in his way of claiming her.

I loved Grace. She is one smart and strong heroine.  What she had to endure and how she saved herself from the situation she found herself in was ingenious.

Hunter was everything that you would expect in an alpha shifter. He is possessive, strong and dominant. He knows what he loves and will do anything to protect what he considers his.

This is one hot read. The sexual chemistry between Grace and Hunter is thick and when they succumb to their desires it is explosive.

This book had everything that you come to expect in a paranormal romance. The storyline was well written without the need for extra fluff to create unnecessary drama. The writing was superb and compelled me to keep turning pages at lightning speed. I highly recommend this book to lovers of smutty books that love possessive, dominant alpha males and sassy strong females.

Book Two: Shoot for the Moon

Eliza knows that she is different from every other wolf. Her ability to be able to dream future events has led too so much heartache that when she decides to make a new life for herself she hides her gift from those that she is close to.

Spencer is the beta in his pack. His whole life he has known certain things about his fated mate. It is because of this knowledge that he is blinded to what is going on directly under his nose. He proposed to Eliza a no strings attached relationship. He doesn’t want to tie himself down while he waits for his mate to come into his life.

Due to her ability, Eliza knows that Spencer is her mate, but she also knows that at some point he will reject her status as such. So she sets about enjoying her time with him any way she can before he breaks her heart.

Like book 1, this is another short and entertaining read. I love how these books allow you to get a full story that is explosive and sexy without having the need to fill pages for the sake of it.

The angst between Eliza and Spencer is off the charts. Couple this with explosive heat and you can’t really go wrong.

Spencer, being the beta of his pack and the enforcer, is one hot hunk of an alpha, possessive and dominant male. I loved how he recognised that he was acting like an a-hole and did everything he could to make it up to Eliza.

While I understood Eliza’s trepidation through a lot of this book, I was so happy when she was finally able to come through the other side by dropping all the preconceived notions she held.

If you are looking for something quick and steamy you can’t go wrong.

Book Three: Thrown to the Wolves

Annora lived her whole life believing that she was a wolf shifter. Well, her parents were both wolves so there was no real reason to suspect that she was anything different. Unfortunately that all changed the first time that she shifter into a bear. From this unfortunate revelation, Annora’s life is turned upside down.

Parker Tate has watched his brothers find their mates and start their happily ever after. Like his brothers, he has known how his mate will arrive. True to form, when Annora arrives Parker instantly recognises her as his mate and claims her within hours.

But Annora has trouble following her. It arrives in Wolf Point where Parker has vowed to protect his mate at all costs.

After reading about the other two brothers getting their HEA, I could not wait for Parker & Annora’s story. And thank goodness I was not disappointed.

Even though this was book 3 of the series, there was not a moment where I felt and it dragged or rehashed anything in the previous two books.

Of course it was as steamy. Parker and Annora were explosive. Of course Parker was a dominant, possessive alpha male – his family is the head of the pack after all. And of course Parker would go to any lengths to protect what is his.

Annora’s strength and belief in her man was awesome. To be able to recognise that he is willing to protect her and love her unconditionally was a delight.

After reading this series, I don’t think that you can’t really go wrong with a Rochelle Paige book. She delivers a great storylines with depth, excitement and a whole lot of steam. Don’t be put off that this is a paranormal romance, it has everything that other romances deliver – alpha males and the women that love them – but with a great twist on the story. I highly recommend these books to all steamy romance lovers.
