4.0 out of 5 stars potent and undeniable June 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
(more like 4.5 feathers!)
Reviewed by Ann & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

In PROTECTOR'S MATE, Felicia Serna has returned from a war zone to find that her territory has been taken over by another pack. Normally, this would be enough to cause her werewolf hackles to rise, but there's something more that sends a shiver through her. The new second-in-command is no other than the man who stars in all her fantasies - se xy, se xy Alaric.

Though this story may be short, it is nothing close to sweet. Reus packs action and red hot heat into this little number. I was thoroughly impressed by Reus's ability to lure me in from the very first page and keep be entertained all the way thorough.

The chemistry is potent and undeniable from page one and Alaric and Felicia really heat things up quickly. This story was so enjoyable that I had wished it were longer because I wasn't quite ready to leave Alaric and Felicia once the book was done.

PROTECTOR'S MATE explodes with sexy, devilish fun! Don't miss out on this treat!

4.0 out of 5 stars A- rating April 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
My Review:
A- rating

Ooh, what a fabulous book. Felicia is home after spending two years in Afghanistan as a nurse. Two years ago, she fled from her pack after the alpha pursued her and she turned him down. She's always been rebuffed by her pack. She was abandoned as a pup and nothing that her pack has done over the years has ever helped to improve her self-image.

When Felicia met Alaric, she was only nineteen years old and felt an immediate draw to him, but she never thought she would be worthy of his attention, so she ignored the feelings. What she didn't realize is that they are actually destined mates and he actually felt it too, but he wanted to give her time since she was so young.

Alaric has always known that Felicia was his destined mate, but he didn't realize how bad things were for her within her pack. He's kept tabs on her from afar and has maintained his loyalty to her even though she didn't realize their bond.

There's a lot of emotion to this book. Felicia has taken so many incredibly harsh hits over the years. She has a very vulnerable edge to her. She feels unworthy and pitiful especially in the light of Alaric's overwhelming physical perfection. He handles her with utmost care and it's absolutely gorgeous to watch. This book is called Protector's Mate because that's all Alaric wants to do...protect Felicia from any more harm. How can you not fall in love with a guy like that?

In the midst of all that, there is the action of several attacks against the two of them which are very exciting. While Felicia may have self-doubts, she is definitely a capable warrior and will make an excellent mate/match for Alaric. This girl is tough, which after two years in a war zone, stands to reason.

Katie Reus never fails to captivate me with her stories and Protector's Mate is just another title to add to my growing list of favorite reads from this author.

Felicia Serna left her werewolves pack two years ago to escape her deplorable alpha, traveling across the ocean to war-torn Afghanistan as a nurse to help the humans there. Now that Felicia's contract has ended she has nowhere else to go but back home. Hoping to quickly pick up a few items stashed away at human friend's before figuring out what she is going to do with the rest of her life, Felicia steps out of the airport only to be waylaid by a big black SUV. Terrified that whoever is behind the wheel has been sent to punish her for abandoning her pack, Felicia is surprised when the sexy wolf, Alaric, her teenage crush steps out.
From the first time Alaric met Felicia him and his wolf knew that she was the one for him, but unlike the wolf inside, Alaric understood that at nineteen Felicia was too young for him to seek a mating with. So using his vast contacts across the world, Alaric has kept a close eye on Felicia for the past two years, making sure that she isn't in danger. But over the last months that hasn't been enough so Alaric begins to correspond with Felicia via email, and they've been getting flirtier and flirtier. But Felicia still seems oblivious to his feelings towards her so when he finds out through one of his contacts that she is returning home he wastes no time in showing her first hand where he stands.
If Alaric thought that it was going to be easy he couldn't have been more wrong. Tailed, ambushed and attacked; is it Felicia's old pack after her for the consequence of her running away or could it be an angry werewolf or vampire set against Alaric's alpha and the coming treaty between races?

5.0 out of 5 stars Protector's Mate April 3, 2012
By Vanessa
Format:Kindle Edition
Felicia ran from her pack and their harsh treatment of her, the unworthy mongrel. She found a life among humans in Afghanistan. Using her nursing skills she was able to help many people. Her werewolf genes allowed her to go into dangerous situations without having to worry about injuries that would kill a mere human. After two years her contract has ended and now she finds herself returning home with few options of where to go.

Alaric has spent the past two years worried about Felicia. He has kept tabs on her, always known her whereabouts and how she was doing. After a while the tabs weren't enough. That's when he started emailing her. Alaric has known for too long that Felicia was his mate. He knows that she doesn't seem to notice this herself. What's a wolf to do? He starts emailing her flirty emails and he continues to increase the intensity of his flirtiness. He's assuming this will let her know his feelings and intentions...wrong.

Alaric is not allowed any peace in his courtship of Felicia. They are immediately stalked and attacked. Felicia fears that it is repercussions from her abandoning her old pack. Alaric fears that it is more inner turmoil from the recent killing of an Alpha and the consolidations of a pack along with an important treaty that is about to take place. Neither one of them could have ever imagined what the attacks were really all about.

I absolutely loved Alaric! He was so different from the typical werewolf male who is after his mate. He try's for subtly. He doesn't go Neanderthal. He really wants this to be an easy going process. The problem is she's trying to avoid pack life and not telling anyone that she is returning home. Felicia has been treated cruelly by pack mates and has never known her true worth amongst a pack.
