Kate Douglas and A.C. Arthur return with another scorching volume in their Claimed by the Mate series featuring two delicious, unforgettable novels in one!

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 BBW 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.

Dangerous Passions by Kate Douglas ~ Evan finally gets his story and for him it is perfect. Of all the men in this series Evan was the quietest and hardest to get a feeling for but in this book he finally shows his true colors. The reader will be excited to see how he ultimately meets someone who gets his wolf all excited and how they work together to protect someone they care about.

Traker for me seemed the hardest to match and throughout this book you see his obstacles in finding someone that can meet all his alpha needs as well as satisfy his wolf. The author did a superb job of finding someone that adds lots of interest to this story and draws his interest.

Secondary characters are the people from the previous two books as well as some new villains to add lots of intrigue. Hopefully you've read the first two books so you can enjoy seeing how their lives evolved. But this can be read as a stand alone in my opinion.

Kudo's to the author for the great ending to a sexy, entertaining series!

Bound to the Wolf by A. C. Arthur ~ Marena is very complex and the situation she falls into is beyond anything she wants to deal with or understands. Her desire to control all things is displayed in a manner that is not annoying or overbearing. The author does a brilliant job with the development of her character as well as Phelan's. 

Phelan enthralled me in the other books to this series and I have been patiently waiting for his story. What I liked about him was how messy his life was and how he is much more then the reader originally gives him credit for. I was intrigued by his back history and what drove him as well has his connection to the Gods.

The reader will love the ending and be quite satisfied. I hope you have read this series....it's very good but if you haven't you will still love this book about Phelan and Marena. 

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

Kate Douglas ~ Some people just seem to know they are meant to write, but it can still take a while to figure out exactly what their career will entail. Kate Douglas started out writing radio copy for a country western radio station in 1972, wrote and illustrated an educational cartoon strip for the American Mosquito Control Association for a number of years, was a newspaper reporter for a small town weekly where she covered everything from high school sports to drug busts, and then, in the mid-1980s, decided to write her first romance.

Many submissions and rejections followed.

In 1998, she published with a small ebook publisher before anyone knew what an ebook was, but it wasn't until 2005, a full twenty years after finishing that first romance, that she signed with a New York publisher.

In January 2006, Kensington Publishing launched their Aphrodisia imprint of erotic romance with Kate's Wolf Tales, a sexy paranormal series about a lost race of shapeshifters. Kate has continued on as the imprint's lead author, with twenty-one novels and novellas in the full Wolf Tales series. She also has a series with Kensington's Zebra imprint, DemonSlayers, and has just completed her latest Aphrodisia series, Dream Catchers, which opened with the NightShift anthology and her novella, Dream Catcher, followed by the novels Dream Bound and Dream Unchained.

Her next series, Spirit Wild, debuts April 30, 2013 with Dark Wolf. This is a spin-off series that takes place in the Chanku world readers first met in Wolf Tales. Characters are the grown children of the first Chanku.

Kate and her husband of over forty years have two adult children and six grandchildren. They live in the small town of Healdsburg, California, in the heart of the beautiful Sonoma County wine country.
