To Love a Mate (VonBrandt #2)

By Krystal Shannan



Can a small-town cowboy win the heart of a woman who doesn’t have one?

Surviving charity functions by day and automatic weapons and death threats by night, Emma Carrington learned to be as hard as the men her daddy hired to protect her. Hell, she even carried a military grade stun gun in her Prada bag and could shoot just as well as any of her ex-military bodyguards if the need arose.

When a failed kidnapping attempt forces her to hide out in Somewhere, Texas, Emma finds herself stranded, floundering through cow patties, and desperate for a car. Who better to “borrow” from than the sexy naked man she sees turn into a wolf and leave his perfectly good pickup truck available for use. It’s not like he can drive it in his current condition, right?

College senior Noah VonBrandt knows the pack law better than anyone —only a bonded mate can know his secret. He watched his brother find the mate of his dreams and he wants the same thing, but you can’t just make the “right” girl appear out of thin air. To his surprise, lightning does strike. When a beautiful blonde woman trespasses on the ranch and sees him transform, he knows he only has two choices —claim her or let the pack erase her memories. But even as Noah fights to save her, Emma’s past is hot on her heels and out for more than memories.


This series sucked me in, Noah I immediately loved from book one when his brother found his mate so I was really looking forward to meeting the girl who would tame the mischievous Noah.

Emma is not a wall flower and is a dynamic combination when paired with Noah for a fast paced romance that is basically over a period of a few days from meeting to mating so in all honesty it was a touch too quick – I enjoyed the slower build up in book #1.

The mating connection did not give me the desired build up as time was their enemy and I wanted more for Noah.  I also did not like his parents too much is this book, the first book they were caring and supportive but this book not so much.

Am I continuing on, unfortunately no as I do not mind paying for books, this one was around $4.00 for 180 pages or so, the next book is the same price for under half the pages and I am worried is going to be even more rushed.
