Captured and Claimed Wayward Mates Book 8

She never wanted to be a wolf. That won’t keep her mate from claiming her.

Taken captive, held prisoner, and turned against her will by the leader of a rogue pack, Shannon Livingston was just about to be sold at auction. Then an alpha wolf decided she belonged to him.

The moment James Norris sets eyes on Shannon, bare and on display yet still fierce and proud, the former special-ops agent knows the beautiful spitfire is his mate. Disobedience quickly earns Shannon a sound spanking, and despite her fury at his bold dominance, her helpless arousal is undeniable as she is claimed hard and thoroughly with her well-punished bottom still burning.

But when another band of wolves attacks the auction before James has time to put his rescue plan into action, mistrust born of harsh experience leads Shannon to seize her chance to escape. When her mate tracks her down, will she remain defiant or surrender to her instincts at last?

I read an advance copy of this book and agreed to give an honest review. Since I just bought my own copy I guess that says almost everything needed to be said. I love this series and it's wonderful to read Shannon's story because fans have known about her since book 4. I am an unashamed fan of all Delta's books and especially this series. And in the epilogue I have hopes that another series of shifters is out there.....somewhere..........perhaps in Wales

Finally reached the end. Shannon's ordeal is over and she too has a mate worthy of her. Loved how the ladies brought down the corruption in their world. Loved how all the couples (except Griifin) were back in the scene. Editing could have been much better though. Did not like that Shannon and James' wolves were not described in detail. Also, cover model was used for Declan. Really? Are handsome dark-haired white guys in such short supply

Amazing series , wayward mates one those series that will stay with me all times. One that will reread again . Love of paranormal, and spanking . This touches all the spots . Shannon is such great character, love how she didn't let evil get her down . Came out ahead in the end. Found love with James. Love that he was undercover, so he could help stop the evil.
Seeing all the others from previous books was great. Love how the Alpha's understood how their mates felt about the situation in helping free the women.
Epic epic series. Truly loved reading

She thought she could run from her mate. Then he lassoed her.

Riley decided years ago that she would be better off on her own, but when the alpha of the local pack finds out there’s a lone wolf causing trouble on his turf he takes matters into his own hands.

As far as Cameron Nichols is concerned, Riley will be joining his pack whether she likes it or not. Her only choice will be whether to submit to his authority with or without needing to be stripped bare and spanked over his knee until she is kicking and crying and promising obedience. When she chooses the latter, the Navy SEAL turned cowboy is more than happy to oblige.

But Cameron knows instantly that Riley isn’t just a feisty female in need of an alpha’s firm hand. She is his mate, and she knows it too, despite her best efforts to deny it. No matter how many times she tries to run, he will always chase her down, punish her thoroughly, and then mount and claim her so roughly that all she can do is scream her helpless, shamefully intense pleasure into the pillow as her body betrays her and surrenders ever more completely to his demands.

I have loved the Wayward Mates series and have reread all of the previous books in the series. Delta James is one of my favorite romance authors and no one does shifter romance better. I especially liked Hunted and Claimed because of Riley, arguably the strongest of the many strong heroines in this series. I also liked the hero’s appreciation of Riley’s strengths and his persistence in pursuing her. The books may be standalone, but are best read in order. I highly recommend this series.

First of all, let me tell you that I love this series! The women are so strong and the men are wonderful overprotective asses! 😁 Riley and Cam are no different.

Riley has run from her pack so that she can have her own life. She spends time with Bae Diogel and Skylar before they are disbanded. Riley rescues the women that are being stolen and abused by the clans that don't have mates. She is found by Cam and he realizes that she is his fated mate. Riley doesn't disagree, she just doesn't want to be mated. She wants to continue her mission. She escapes before he is able to mate her and that is the start of their game of cat and mouse.

I loved this story, as I have loved all the stories in this series. I rejoice with the women when they defy their men, who are overprotective and overbearing. But, I still like them. I can't wait for the final book to come out! I give this book 5 stars. I would give more if I could!

Ava Rhys has always chafed at submitting to the authority of her pack’s alpha, but when he tries to sell her body in return for money and influence, she decides she would be better off on her own. Ava’s plans to live as a lone wolf in the backwoods of Maine are thrown into turmoil, however, when the local game warden makes it his business to take her in hand, and the battle-hardened former Army Ranger soon proves to be just as fiercely dominant as any alpha shifter.

Declan Collins knows a woman in need of a man’s firm hand when he sees one, and it isn’t long before Ava is kneeling naked at his feet with her well-spanked bare bottom on display. Once he has taught her a better use for her sassy mouth, she quickly finds herself screaming her helpless, shameful submission into the bedsheets as he claims her so roughly and so thoroughly that she is left in no doubt that she belongs to him and there is nothing whatsoever she can do about it.

With each passing day he masters her body ever more completely, never hesitating to punish any hint of defiance before using and enjoying her in ways more humiliating than she could have ever imagined. But when instinct causes her to bite him in the throes of yet another intense, desperate climax, will she lose him forever or will she end up mated to an alpha shifter after all?

He tried to romance her, but now it is time for his mate to be claimed.

When Catherine Livingston travels to Italy to investigate her sister’s disappearance, it isn’t long before she crosses paths with the man who has been ravishing her almost every night in her dreams. More shocking still, the mysterious, darkly handsome stranger leaves her in no doubt that he is well aware of the connection between them and he has no intention of ignoring it.

Marco DeMedici seems to all but own the city of Florence, and it soon becomes clear that he will not rest until Catherine belongs to him, even if it means carrying her off, stripping her bare, and spanking her until she is sobbing, obedient, and begging him to take her hard and thoroughly.

Despite Catherine’s efforts to run from him, her body’s response to Marco’s stern dominance cannot be denied, and when he reveals that he is an alpha shifter it only makes it more obvious that her world will never be the same. She will be his mate, and the only thing left up to her will be how loudly she screams his name as he claims her as roughly and shamefully as he pleases.

O.M.G! There were definitely times when I had to admit that I would have done the exact same thing as Catherine. It made me laugh to read it. Strong willed as she is, only Marco could have stopped her!

I am hooked on this series. Strong men who love strong, sassy women. They love, laugh, and play in a world where the rules are rock solid, respect is extremely important. Good mix of drama to make this story more than just spanking naughty mates and detailed sexy scenes for the reader to experience through the characters.

This is Catherine and Marco's story. Catherine is human and Marco, Italian wolf, feels her presence while enjoying a bite with his wolf friend Griffin. Marco chases Catherine hard and Catherine runs. Great lines from Marco to Catherine like 'you have not had a man worthy of your submission, so you have withheld it.' Talk about lines to warm your girlie parts. Catherine has a lot of spunk and sass even after it results in lots of spanks and hard loving to ensure all is forgiven.

A story I will read again and again.

What a thrilling and exciting story this was to read. Maddie a romance writer human but converted not long after meeting Griffin. She is his fated mate, but like a few other women she also is firey and has a temper, which she is spanked for. But things are heating up and the men must take down the rogues. The women including Maddie wont to be apart of the takedown, but the men wont hear of it. These men, Alpha males wont hesitate to lock them up to keep them safe.

What i loved most about this story is that we get to hear more from the women of Bae Biogel as they make their appearences in the book. They sre all so happy but still give their men grief occasionally.
This series i really have to say has been great to read, and i will be looking forward to Deltas next book

The story of Maggie and Griffin will make you laugh out loud, feel warm inside, and sizzle your girlie parts. Fun read with all of Maggie's sassiness and antics. Enjoyed hearing from ole friends from the previous stories , like Marco and Jean-Michel. Griffin made you want to be possessed, by him, like Maggie and the spankable offenses just made the story hotter. And I agree with Griffin that beautiful mates do not use bad language without themselves earning a mouth full of soap and a trip over their mate's knee - a lesson Maggie learned the hard way. And yes, there is a happily ever after.

Mastering His Mate (Wayward Mates Book 3)

He has been patient with his mate for long enough. Now she needs to be mastered.

After she was injured in an attack by a rogue band of wolves, Rosalyn Kincanon awoke to discover that her life had changed forever. Angry and distraught, she fled from those that nursed her back to health and found her own place in the world. But now the all-female pack she helped lead has been disbanded and the women are to be claimed as mates whether they like it or not.

The moment Oliver Halsey saw Rosalyn, he knew she was his mate. But she was born a human, and the vicious brutes who turned her did so against her will, so he set aside his rights as alpha and gave her the freedom she needed to come to terms with her new reality. Now her time is up.

Oliver knows what Rosalyn needs, even if she doesn’t. When she runs, he will catch her and bring her back. When she disobeys, he will bare her and punish her. He will take her harder and longer than she would have ever thought possible, and she will scream and beg as one climax after another is forced from her naked, quivering body. It is time for his mate to be mastered.

This author melds adventure, excitement, romance, and searing passion between strong male and female characters. Each book reads as a stand-alone, and I have read them out of order. It just gave me the bonus of knowing how certain characters would find their fated mates and the fun that is to be had by all. I would recommend however reading the books in order to keep the underlying storyline intact and allowing the tension to build as the danger escalates. But whatever you decide, read them all!

Marked and Mated (Wayward Mates Book 2)

She ran from her mate. Now she must be punished.

Darby Callan doesn’t want a mate, but it isn’t up to her. Her old pack has been disbanded, and when the powerful, handsome alpha of a well-established pack makes it clear that she belongs to him, her instincts reveal the truth of his words despite her furious protests and attempts to escape.

Jean-Michel Gautier knows that his new mate’s past makes her wary of him, but an alpha cannot tolerate disobedience, and when Darby defies him he strips her bare and spanks her until she is sore and sobbing. Her beautiful body’s response to his dominance is obvious, and his stern correction leaves her helplessly aroused, but before he claims her he plans to make her beg.

Naked and quivering with desperate, shameful need, Darby cannot help pleading with Jean-Michel for the climax she has been denied, and soon she is crying out with pleasure more intense than she would have ever thought possible as he makes her his. But when the vicious brute who once hurt her comes looking for Darby again, can she trust her new alpha to protect his mate?

There were so many times that I just wanted to laugh at Darby. I totally understand the need to make sure your mate is strong enough to stand up to and for you. But I still could see the humor.

I found myself pretty frustrated reading this even though I enjoyed it. Many of the reviews state problems with what they called a lack of respect for the women and the sexist attitude of the story. That wasn’t my problem. I have always been a pretty laid back reader who is able to accept the rules and customs of the world in which I am reading about. They are shifters, not humans. Their beliefs and their reality is different and that is fine with me. My main issue was how repetitive it was. The same things are said over and over again by different people and sometimes even the same person. That gets boring really fast. I also thought that the story was quite busy. I wish more time had been focused on Dylan and Skylar, rather than all the glimpses of the other girls and stuff. The other stories are about them so I didn’t need them taking up so much space in this one.

I plan to read the next one to see if things start to flow a little better as the series progresses.

What Nick wanted was an obedient mate…what he got was Bianca.

Bianca is the sister to an ineffectual alpha of a small pack. Shifter-born, beautiful, and sister to a pack leader, she should be amongst the most desirable of mates. But once a wolf discovers that her dangerous curves hide a truly nasty temperament, they literally run for the hills.

Desperate to find his sister a mate, her brother appeals to the Calon Onest pack to take her in. Bianca is delivered to the estate sitting on her very first sore bottom. Bianca is confronted with Nick’s dominant side within minutes of meeting him. Nick quickly recognizes her as his fated mate, much to his chagrin.

Nick loses no time in putting Bianca face down over his knee nor marking her as his own.
He may have claimed her body, but can he claim her heart as well?

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I can see why Bianca was such a handful! There may be more behind her behavior than was described here, but from what I can see, she is spoiled beyond belief! However, I have to admit, I’d react to a man telling me I had obey him in much the same way as she did. This is a wonderful prequel to the Wayward Mates series. The writing is great, the characters well-written with believable flaws and failings.

Bianca is the sister to an ineffectual alpha of a small pack that nobody can deal with her. Her brother is trying to find her a mate and nobody can handle her. He finally appeals to Colon Onest pack to take her in. She is delivered with a sore bottom. Bianca gets there and is confronted with Nick’s dominant side within minutes of meeting him. He realized that she is his fated mates. He takes her to his room and puts her over his legs to prove he won’t put up with her disrespect. She is completely confused with her reaction to him

Nick and Bianca’s story sets the stage for the exciting deliciousness that is to come in this series. As each strong male finds his mate, the reader is ensconced in the patriarch society of wolf shifters, falling in love with the romantic yet dominant methods that their equally strong willed mates need to know they have met their match. Nick may be Beta but he is second to no one. Fabulous sizzling read.
