Synopsis (Goodreads):
Kira Radney is all delicious curves and strong will and has no desire to be a subservient mate. When a member of her father's pack attempts to make her his mate by force, Kira has no choice but to flee. The last thing she wants is to submit to any male and their pack. But when her escape attempt leads her straight into the arms of an alpha wolf-a sexy, dangerous, protective alpha-Kira must fight against her need to be free, and her secret desire to be controlled...

FERAL PASSIONS (A Feral Passions Novel) by Kate Douglas
Welcome to Feral Passions, a luxurious private resort nestled in a preserve and staffed by dangerously sexy men, making it a haven for women who want to get away from it all. But Feral Passions is a front for a deeper, sexier secret-it's a hunting ground for these men. Men focused on meeting each woman's every need. Men who are also the beautiful wolves running wild...and who are looking for mates.

Chereza Dubios is more comfortable solving math equations than she is with her voluptuous body and meeting men. But when her younger sister and best friend trick her into vacationing at Feral Passions, Cherry finds herself attracted and torn between two men who find her curvy body and intelligent mind irresistible. Two men who share a secret-they want to share her.

But that takes trust-can Cherry open herself to love with two sensual and powerful werewolves?
Thoughts on Claimed by the Mate: Loved, loved loved Feral Passions. Something about it worked for me on a lot of levels. All the characters had chemistry. I liked that Brad and Cain saw Cherry and liked her for all her quirks and hangups. I liked the man-lovin' they had going on. I liked the whole vibe at the resort. Flat out, I just liked the entire story and would totally be down with more in this world.

I did like the Alpha's Woman, but I had a few rage-y moments when it came to her former pack. Those guys give shapeshifters a bad name. Or maybe it was just her father and his minions. I don't know. Either way, I totally got why Kira cut and ran. I didn't quite get her desire to cross the country on foot (or paw) and the way she really didn't take any precautions when she was crossing into other packs' territories, but I went with it. As one does when one runs across hecka sexy wolves. Speaking of which, I liked the slightly different take on the usual werewolf mythology. That was fun.

Overall, a fun, steamy collection chock full of sexin' and my favorite shapeshifters. *thumbs up*
