Mission: Don’t fall in love. After an explosive night of passion during a scenting ceremony, Karla Alves is sure she was just a one night stand for the man she’d been crushing on for years. She teased him and pleased him, and Nate hasn’t been around since. Her fear of becoming clingy kept her from risking her heart and asking for more than a few hours of skin sin.
Mission: Crack her walls. She. Is. His. Nathan Wolfe marked Karla. His mate. Deeply involved in pack politics, Nate has had to stay away. When his sister warns that Karla needs him more than he thinks, he’ll discover a bundle of secrets only his wolf can sniff out. But getting the woman he cares about to let down her guard may prove to be his undoing.
Mission: Embrace the bite With Karla’s wayward sister wreaking havoc and friends needing more of his time than ever, Nate will have to rearrange his priorities if he ever hopes to earn Karla’s trust. But will time with her be enough? Only true love and a wolf’s promise can hold together a relationship created with a bite, a scenting, and a hope for tomorrow.
His mother was too much. “Fine. Ask what you want to know then.”
“What’s going on here? I sense you and Karla aren’t where you should be for a pair ready to welcome some babies into the world.”
Wait, what? “What do you mean babies? I scented the change. Only heard one heartbeat. How did you come up with multiples?”
She sighed. “Son, you are—what do you young people call it? Oh yes, a noob. I know scents. I know babies. You’re having multiples.”
His heart stopped and he swallowed hard. “How many is multiple?”
“Two or three. They’re very in sync, so it’s hard to say. But definitely more than one.”

Eskimo PrincessAlisa (Jenkins) 5.0 out of 5 stars Must Read Reviewed in the United States on January 12, 2014 Verified Purchase Once again Milly Taiden does it again. Fan-freaking-tastic book. Couldn't put it down, but I had to at times. This is yet another hot and sexy book. This one focuses on Karla and Nate. But starts off at the scenting ceremony just like "Scent of a Mate". The pack is still having troubles, but Nate makes time for Karla. Karla has had issues with men and family all her life, and has a hard time letting him in, but boy when she does its full blown! Karla and Nate are hot! Nate is hot sexy wolf. Loved this story of Nate and Karla. Not sure which book is my favorite. But I know my hubby loves when I read a book by Milly Taiden! This book will get you hot, then angry and ready to shift and tear someone apart. This author really tells a story that you get into and feel everything the characters do. When Karla's sister was confronting her, I felt Karla's guilt and rage I also felt Jordon's rage and wanted to be the one holding Kass up against the wall threatening her!!! I felt Karla's fear when they were threatened. The only girls in the "group" that we really see in this book are Jordan and Karla. Ellie, Emma and Nicole are mentioned but not present. Highly recommend you read and take this journey to know more about the Wolfe family and meet Karla.
Penelope Anne Bartotto 4.0 out of 5 stars Double Review -- Sassy Mates Bite! Nicely! Reviewed in the United States on February 26, 2014 Verified Purchase I want to preface the following reviews by saying that I am not a true fan of erotica, I find that it can often get coarse and lapse into unnecessary description of the act of sex, without touching on any romance or emotional levels for the characters. I am happy to say that Taiden has managed to fully develop her rutting wolves into compassionate characters with hearts of gold. Yes, there is a lot of sex involved in both books, but you cannot help but falling in love with the Wolfe brothers, and the entire Wolfe family for that matter. We cannot forget sister, Ellie; nor mom and dad. Normally I would segregate the reviews into two parts, but I feel that the two books compliment each other so well that they shouldn't be parted. What begins in Scent a Mate is the story not just of a couple coming together after years of tormenting themselves; but the beginning of a family saga. The Wolfe family, and leaders of the pack, hold everyone that is dear to them, close to their hearts and their souls. Through a delightful attention to detail and character development, Taiden introduces all of the characters in what I hope will be a beautiful series, touching each member of the family. I am seeing an epic saga in my mind, and can only hope that Taiden has it within her to cover each family member; and then bring us an epic conclusion. Am I asking too much? Yes, these are books that clearly fall into the erotica category, but unlike so many novels before that fall short in plot and story development; Taiden has blasted into the realm of dramatic story with a compliment of steamy sex scenes that...honestly, will make your panties damp. Yes, you heard that here. My own wolf better watch out tonight, he may get ravaged. Minor issues with fact consistency and odd phrase selections, left the stories lacking the ability to earn the coveted 5 Star reviews; but without a doubt I am honored to say that both rank at a 4.5 Star level.

Crystal Newman 5.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth The Wait! Reviewed in the United States on January 9, 2014 Verified Purchase I couldn't wait to read this book after I read the first one. I will say that I am desperate because I want to read the rest now! I know that I won't be able to do that so I will just have to read this book again while I wait. I thought there was some great one lines with Jordan and Aric. Karla and Nate have even more. Man I want my own wolf to take care of all my needs. If you want a book that is full of hot passion and has some added suspense in it this is the book for have been waiting for. You will also have to see how the relationship works between these two. You have an alpha that wants what he wants and a woman who is used to coming last with her mom. Never depending on anyone. I loved this story and it makes me think about what the author has in store with the other books in this series. I just can't get enough of these shifters. So while I am waiting and in heat with this book while waiting for the next one, you should just try it and see what it does to you!
Joyce J. Ruskuski 4.0 out of 5 stars i NEED MORE FOR MY INNER CHILD TO MAKE THIS A 5 STAR STORY Reviewed in the United States on June 4, 2015 Verified Purchase This is Karla and Nate's story and is again on the predictable side. While that doesn't mean it isn't a great story it does make it harder to give it a 5 star rating. The characters are strong and the stories are all interrelated but that doesn't mean that they shouldn't all be a little unpredictable. While each of these young women are all different they are all portrayed as slightly damaged in some way by pasted tragedy or relationships, but that doesn't mean there could be more variance in their actual stories. Each of them seems to be fighting their own inner villains and are unable to comment, which with the shifter's is something that must happen for them to be together and content. Unfortunately, it's only their own stubborn need to not commit that is the stumbling block and after a while that is just not enough to keep the reader invested. The reader needs the emotional investment to make it the 5 star rating it should be. Ms. Taiden needs to feed our inner child to mate this come up to it's full 5 star potential. We like this but we want more. In this case more would be better.
