To Save a Mate (VonBrandt Family #1)

By Krystal Shannan



A chance he never thought he’d have comes at a price he never wanted her to pay

What do you do when everything you thought was real turns out to be a lie? How do you pick yourself up and move on? Move past the pain?

Kara McClure is living the perfect life. A great boyfriend, supportive loving parents, and a full ride to John McAdams University on a scholarship. What could go wrong? But something always does. When tragedy hits, you’re supposed to be able to count on those closest to you for support. Kara turns to the love of her life, Vincent Harris, only to find him supporting the nether lips of her sorority sister.

Luke VonBrandt is a business college student with a secret no one can know. When an accident threatens the life of an innocent girl he’s secretly loved since high school, he risks everything to give her a second chance on life, even exposing the truth about what he is. The blue-eyed beauty haunts his dreams and her scent is all he can think about.

Luke’s wolf insists he find a way to claim her as his own.

But Kara’s broken heart will fight him every step of the way.


Love me some beautiful passionate hot sex between an alpha man who is just sex on a stick being Luke and the shattered Kara who has been Luke’s infatuation for years and his obvious mate.  The way he just became her saviour and barrier to the outside world during one of the most traumatic times in her life just captured my heart and I simply devoured this story – just what I needed.

God I loved the connection these two characters had along with the family interwoven to help Kara deal with her loss.  This is a fast paced story but still had an so much emotion and great drama that flowed well and had supporting characters whom will obviously be in the next few books and I am really looking forward to reading them too.

The VonBrandt family are so supportive and I really became quite enamoured with Luke & Noah’s parents who provided support to Luke but also especially to Kara.  Looking forward to reading Noah’s  story next and I think there are more people in this town that know about the werewolves and I think Kara’s parents also knew more than what they ever told her.

I hope I get to see more of Luke and Kara in the next few books.  I also really loved the tattoos around the wrists as the first part of their mating bond and how most matings I have read required a bite during sex yet I loved the difference in how Luke and Kara’s mating was finally secured.

Luke saved his mate Kara in both body and soul.
