To Catch His Mate

To Catch His Mate

When she ran, she didn’t think he’d follow…

Pack princess Alyssa Clare was trying to come up with ways to get out of her arranged mating to alpha wolf Reece O’Shea—until she meets the powerful male. After getting to know him, mating doesn’t seem like such a bad idea anymore. But when he makes it clear she’s just a business arrangement for him and his pack, she calls off the mating and heads south to stay with a friend to lick her wounds in private.

But he’s not willing to let her go without a fight.

Reece can’t let Alyssa go, not when he’s completely fallen for the sweet, sexy female. He doesn’t care about the arranged mating deal, he just wants her and has no idea why she ran. To win her back he infiltrates another alpha’s territory, knowing it could mean his death. Luckily Grant Kincaid allows him in his domain—as long as Alyssa is okay with it. Convincing her that she’s all he wants is a bigger challenge than he imagined. But he’s not giving up, because he knows she’s the one he’s meant to be with forever.

Saving His Mate

From the moment vampire bounty-hunter Rex Serano meets sexy shifter Margery, he’s smitten. When the alpha of the Kincaid pack asks him to join with them, he’s stunned by the offer, but the real draw is the beautiful, caring female who seems to want nothing to do with him.

When one of Rex’s hunts gets messy, Margery gets caught in the crossfire and he’ll do whatever it takes to protect her. They might be different species but the mating call is undeniable and too strong to ignore. Now they must find a way to reach common ground and trust their instincts if they’re going to fight for a future together.

She’s not willing to trust him again.

Charlie thought Andrew was different from other males, that what they shared was real—that their connection was the rare mating pull. But a true mate wouldn’t have ghosted on her the way he did.

Drake: Der Geschmack der Dunkelheit

Author:
Series: Dunkelheit, Book 2
Genres: Foreign Editions, German

Die New York Times & USA Today Bestseller-Autorin Katie Reus setzt ihre paranormale Romantik-Serie mit ... Drake: Der Geschmack der Dunkelheit fort.

Er hat mehr als tausend Jahre in der Hölle verbracht…

Drake ist ein uralter Drachenwandler, eines der mächtigsten Wesen, die es gibt, doch nach über einem Jahrtausend der Gefangenschaft in völliger Dunkelheit ist er für die moderne Gesellschaft schlecht gerüstet. Wenn Victoria nicht wäre, die süße Frau, die mutig genug ist, sich mit ihm anzufreunden, wäre er verloren. Sie ist klug und wunderschön und alles, wovon er in seinen Jahren qualvoller Einsamkeit nie zu träumen gewagt hat. Er hat ihr vielleicht nichts zu bieten, doch eines weiß er sicher: Er würde sein Leben geben, um sie zu beschützen.

Nur um in den Himmel ihrer Berührung zu sinken.

Victoria ist eine Wolfwandlerin und Heilerin des Stavros-Rudels. Sie hat viel gesehen, doch sie ist noch nie jemandem wie Drake begegnet, dem feurigen, faszinierenden Wandler, der ungesehen von den Sterblichen wie ein Feuersturm durch den Himmel rasen kann. Er ist verloren, gefährlich und der letzte Mann, in den sie sich verlieben sollte, doch je mehr Zeit sie damit verbringt, ihm beim Navigieren durch das moderne Leben zu helfen, desto tiefer – und heißer – wird ihre Bindung. Sie freut sich wahnsinnig für ihn, als sie endlich seine Familie finden, doch die Wiedervereinigung mit seinen Leuten bringt beide in unvorstellbare Gefahr. Es folgt ein Wettlauf gegen die Zeit, um herauszufinden, wer sie tot sehen will und wem sie vertrauen können, besonders da die Bedrohung näher ist, als sie es sich jemals vorgestellt haben.
