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 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.

Title:  Claimed by the Mate
Author:  Kate Douglas & A.C. Arthur
Genre:  Paranormal Romance
Published:  January 17, 2017
Publisher:  St. Martin’s Press
My Rating:  5 stars

Once again the Claimed by the Mate, Vol. 3 – double story series has given those of us readers who absolutely love and devour Shifter Romance another set of satisfying, sexy, totally hot and intriguing stories to enjoy.

Although I have to be frank and say that the Cover Description for Dangerous Passions in the Feral Passions Resort series is somewhat confusing – Evan has his love interest return to the resort to make her own claim on her happiness with him… alone.  And Trak finally finds his alpha female love in the arms of a wounded, abused female shifter new to the pack’s territory… again, a separate couple.  There is no menage for this story, although there has been in previous stories in this series… so confusion there.  (I hope someone from St. Martin’s Press sees this and addresses it because the description might draw or turn away certain audiences when it’s not correct for the two separate romances going on in this story)

Both Dangerous Passions and Bound to the Wolf are excellent, sexy and will fully engage readers in the lives of these characters.  I will confess that although I’ve enjoyed both stories, this time around it was Dangerous Passions that won my heart.  Seeing Trak find his perfect match was such a delight and their story was not only completely hot and sexy but a page turner for the suspense and danger they faced.  I will miss this group of amazing, funny, sexy and endearing shifters and their  mates – and hope that we’ll find a reason to revisit them some day.

In all, I completely enjoyed my time spent in these two Shifter worlds and am saddened to see them come to a close – although, now I can’t wait to see what Kate Douglas and A.C. Arthur offer us next.

*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story. It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*
