Synopsis (Goodreads):
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 Dangerous Passions, Feral Passions Resort is the place for women to find romance and seduction with a hot, hard werewolf alpha mate. Traker Jakes and Evan Dark of the Trinity Alps pack have yet to find a strong, sexy BBW woman to consume with heady pleasure. But a special woman has arrived at Feral Passions Resort. The one who will burn with passion between these two sexy werewolf shifters. Desire will reach its peak…and the best these three can do is hold on to the sensations that erupt between them.

In Bound to the Wolf, Phelan Sava is a lycan werewolf shifter with a dark side to his soul. He lives for pleasure and revels in pain. But what burns for more than anything is a woman to dominate with his unbridled passion and desperate lust for good. Marena Panos is an attorney with a dark secret that follows her into the mountains and into the bed of a Phelan Sava. And when she is hunted by the feral beast that ravishes her body and claims her soul, Marena has no choice but to give in with no intention of ever looking back.
Thoughts on Claimed by the Mate Vol 3: Overall, I liked the closing out of the respective series and am glad I got to see how the various men and women met their mates.

Dangerous Passions: The last two unattached shifters are on deck and they're dealing with sexy times and romance and a passel of dangerous individuals who are looking to cause trouble. Evan reconnects with someone he hasn't been able to get out of his head and Trak meets someone who is a match for his own alpha power.

I am kinda giving the blurb side-eye, though, because it makes it sound like the two wolves are sharing a lady-friend and that wasn't the story I read. Ahh, well. I enjoyed spending time with the Trinity Alps pack and am glad to see them all properly mated up.

Bound to the Wolf: I liked this one, but I felt like the mythology aspects got a little muddled. Like, there was A LOT going on in parts as the pack worked to protect Blaez and maintain the balance of power. It did work nicely to close out the series, but I had to handwave how Marena (an unknown until this book) happened to be in the right place at the right time to put her in Phelan's path so they could go into battle together. At the same time...GODS, MAN. They work in mysterious ways. So maybe it wasn't so much handwaving as godwaving. I don't know. I still liked the story and the sexy times Phelan and Marena got into.
