Kate Douglas and A.C. Arthur return with another scorching volume in their Claimed by the Mate series featuring two delicious, unforgettable novels in one!

In Wild Passions by Kate Douglas, six women—friends closer than sisters—head off to an exclusive mountain resort for a week-long bachelorette getaway, where most of the women just want to know if there are any good men left in the world.

There are, and they’re the men of Feral Passions, a unique resort located on a private wolf preserve, owned and run by a pack of sexy werewolves who use it as their own personal hunting ground for mates.

In Her Perfect Mates, Malec Zenta was part of a loving lycan family until his twin brother’s suicide took a piece of his soul. Channing Verdi never knew his parents, but that was fine because at the age of sixteen on the night of the full moon, he realized his purpose. The only pleasure these two betas have managed to find in their life was in the bed with the women they shared. Now, a human woman has entered their lives...a woman who sets their primal instincts on fire, a woman they can't help but stake their claim on...and give her the ultimate pleasure of being with two shifters at once.

Nikki's Review:

Wowza! This book, which contains two separate novellas, is crazy steamy! I like the hot and spicy stuff in my romance novels, but this was more than even I typically read! Once the bumping and grinding started, it was no holds barred. 

I found it difficult to really connect with the first story, Wild Passions. There were so many story arcs and characters to follow. I couldn't get a good sense of who anyone really was. And like I much sex. The sex took away from the actual story. I need a solid plot to really like a book. 

I wasn't sure it was possible, but there's even less story in the second book, Her Perfect Mates, than the first! Tons of ménage lovin', which I typically think is delicious, but the characters hardly left the damn bedroom! 

Honestly, I'm finding it hard to find things to say about these stories. I'm so bogged down by the bedroom antics that everything else just kinda fades into the background. There's no doubt that these are super hot shifter books! And if you like your romance with more sex than actual romance, this might be for you! The one thing that did work for me was that they were fast reads. If you're looking for something to get your heart racing but you don't have a lot of time to devote to a book, give this one a try!
