Book Description

Jordan and Aric

An alpha looking to claim his curvy, sassy mate is about to learn it's not as simple as a bite.

Mission: Scent a Mate


Jordan Alvarez knew that a promise to her best friend involved staking out the local wolf pack’s scenting ceremony and recording the graphic details, but she was the writer and the only one with the balls to finish the task. No one would know that four human women had sneaked proof of their rituals, or at least, that was the plan until Aric Wolfe showed up.

Mission: Stake a Claim

Aric Wolfe knew his baby sister was up to something, and expected her best friend, Jordan, to be in on the chaos. He finally had an opportunity to lay claim to a mate that had been under his nose for years. Jordan’s scent called to both the man and the animal, and he was done fighting the call of the beast. It was time to mark his mate.

Mission: Survive an Alpha


When a good intention creates a problem for the Wolfe family, Jordan finds herself being stalked by a woman intent on claiming Aric as her own. Battle lines will be drawn, love will be put to the test, and Aric will have to fight Jordan’s strong personality to keep her alive. Two alpha hearts seeking control will either find the balance or risk losing their love forever.

Mature reader warning: Adult content including but not limited to: Violence and raw sexual language and actions.

***INCLUDES: Bonus short (A Hero Scarred) from Milly writing as April Angel***


Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book had crotch sniffing, tree climbing, mystery and great romance. There is some set up for future installments with secondary characters." 
Kristin Pittman, I Heart Books
"I am a fan of Milly Taiden, but I can say with 100% accuracy this is her best book ever!"
Jennifer Wedmore, Two Bibliophiles
"With enjoyable characters, a great plot and some action thrown in for good measure, this has got to be my favorite book by Ms. Taiden to date." 
Iris Pross, Cocktails and Books
"SCENT OF A MATE has fun dialogue that you will be quoting for days as well as the scorchingly hot scenes that Milly Taiden is known for."
Barb Hicks, Bad Barb Reviews
"This story has witty quips and one liners like "What part turned you on, the fighting or the shoving your muzzle into my crotch"
Sheri Spell, Two Bibliophiles

5.0 out of 5 stars Best one yet September 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Anyone who looks at my previous reviews will know that I am a fan of Ms. Taiden. However another thing they will note is that I do tend to be very critical as well. I set a certain standard and if that standard is not met, I have no problem stating it publicly. Such has been the case in the past.

The characters were funny and likable. They were relatable in a way none of Ms. Taiden's previous characters ever have been. Jordan and the girls reminded me of my friends at that age. Hell, they remind me of certain friends of mine now. The women are strong and independent yet know when to ask for help. This very thing is what makes Aric officially my favorite shifter hero. He knew when to push and when to let Jordan stand on her own to feet. There were no "Me Tarzan, you Jane" moments here, much to my enjoyment. And the best part? Unlike too many of Ms. Taiden's heroines, Jordan isn't suddenly struck stupid the second she is mated. She is just as strong and independent after as is was before she and Aric get together.

Issues with the book... it ends at 78%. Very true. However, the whole percentage thing is purely an Amazon thing. You're getting a full story here. You just happen to also get a novella written by Ms. Taiden under her other pen name for FREE. This is NOT a sample or excerpt of another book. This is a FREE short story. Essentially getting 2 stories for the price of one. So we really can't complain. Plus the author does tell us that there is a free short included at the end. We are forewarned before purchasing the book of this. So we can't exactly deduct stars for it ending at 78% because of a short story at the end if we the readers don't bother to read what was plainly stated in the author's notes.

The story ends in a cliffhanger...

5.0 out of 5 stars Hotness September 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Scent of a Mate is a great book. I knew weeks ago when I saw the cover that I needed this book, the blurb only helped to seal the deal. Who could resist a hot alpha male? Not I for sure. I loved how the author gave me info into the lives of the main characters but also set up the supporting characters for what I hope is a long series of wonderful, intensely sexual stories. The heat between the main characters kept me reading well into the night. This book was well worth the money just for the main story alone but with the added bonus story I would have paid more. Awesome read. I will recommending this author and this book for many years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot and Wild Romance HOT HOT September 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Scent of a mate was all that I thought it would be it was a great story line with great character. Love the story line with Aric and Jordan they are some explosive romance going on in there relationship and they are well made for each other. I like that his mother know that Jordan was his mate and that she did not say anything and his sister Emmie his she tries to protect Jordan from her big brother.I also like the fact that she does not know what she was marked as Aric during the mating ceremony that should have been watching. I looking for to reading the next book in this series because it would be nice to see what happens between Aric's brothers and Jordan's friends. This book is one sexy romance that kept me going from the moment I bought it and started reading it I could not put the book down until I was finished. This a highly recommend read it is a very good paranormal romance book and Milly's work is awesome in how she draws you into the characters and there lives.

Mission: Scent a Mate
Jordan Alvarez knew that a promise to her best
friend involved staking out the local wolf pack's
scenting ceremony and recording the graphic
details, but she was the writer and the only one with
the balls to finish the task. No one would know that
four human women had sneaked proof of their
rituals, or at least, that was the plan until Aric Wolfe
showed up.
Mission: Stake a Claim
Aric Wolfe knew his baby sister was up to
something, and expected her best friend, Jordan, to
be in on the chaos. He finally had an opportunity to
lay claim to a mate that had been under his nose for
years. Jordan's scent called to both the man and the
animal, and he was done fighting the call of the
beast. It was time to mark his mate.
Mission: Survive an AlphaWhen a good intention
creates a problem for the Wolfe family, Jordan
finds herself being stalked by a woman intent on
claiming Aric as her own. Battle lines will be drawn,
love will be put to the test, and Aric will have to fight
Jordan's strong personality to keep her alive. Two
alpha hearts seeking control will either find the
balance or risk losing their love forever

Well this was certainly what i expected and more

The sizzling heat
between aric and jordan kept me reading till the end.Hot alpha male,r omance,suspense,love scenes all wrapped up in one book yummy. But i have to say this book was worth every cent(or should i say scent lol).
I couldn't help but fall in love with Jordan for being strong and independent and aric for his alpha ways
I highly
recommend this very good paranormal romance
book.
