Villains aren’t supposed to rescue damsels, and pack alphas are known to have complete control of their wolf. But when Fabian saves a certain lady from drowning, everything he knows gets tossed away and only one thing becomes clear: she’s his mate―and someone wants to kill her. Hell no. Protecting her, though, is only part of his problem. He also has to convince her she belongs to him. In her words, “Hell no.”
When she flees, little does she realize this wolf loves to chase. And when he catches the woman he wants? She’ll become the Alpha’s Mate.
You’ve just been thrown from a cliff into a river, your hands and feet are tied and you smashed your head on a rock. You’d be a bit snippy too, even with the nice (and nice-looking) fella who just dove in and saved you. Especially when you realise you don’t remember your name.
The mostly-unnamed heroine of this short story may have needed saving when Fabian first found her, but throughout the story she manages to hold her own against assassins, well-meaning butlers and the wolf who has decided she’s the One. Some paranormal romance heroines tag along, but even without friends or a name, this one questions his decisions and is instrumental to saving herself multiple times. She doesn’t know why she knows how to pick a lock or drive a motorcycle, but she’s going to use those skills regardless!
I felt like THE ALPHA’S MATE lacked some of the humour other books by Eve Langlais, which made the short story feel shorter. Still, I enjoyed the small cast of characters and even the cheesy “Happily-Ever-After” epilogue at the end.
If you like your shifter tales fast and sexy, this one is a wild ride.Series Titles:
