REVIEW : Protecting Their Mate (1-3) by Moira Rogers

Series: The Last Pack - Part 1
Paperback: 150 pages ( July 24, 2017)
Part One of Three

Blake is on a mission from his alpha-to track down a werewolf whose parents dragged her into the human world years ago, one who may be in danger. He expects the lead to go nowhere, given how few wolves live among humans, but he discovers something rare indeed, caged in a basement: a beautiful, curvy woman gripped by the fever, ready to mate.

Ashley Todd has never fit in. She's always been too much-too big, too demanding, too aware of the wolf hiding beneath her skin. She's been locked away for months--been alone for a lifetime--and in walks Blake to save her from her prison. Her rescuer is hard, intense--a dominant wolf whose bossy attitude makes her growl...and yearn to submit.

Soothing Ashley's mating fever is Blake's responsibility-and his pleasure. Their passion is explosive, undeniable. But what started out as a job for Blake quickly becomes something more, and the toughest part of his mission looms: taking Ashley back to his pack so she can choose her permanent mate from amongst his brethren.

Ashley is drawn to dominant Blake, but meeting the rest of the pack reignites her desire. She is overwhelmed by her new life and all it entails, but embracing her inner wolf means embracing the truth: if she doesn't explore her attraction to the other members of the pack, she'll never find her forever mate.

Protecting Their Mate was originally published as an eight part serial under the penname Mia Thorne. It has been repackaged, but the story remains the same.

Part Two (of Three)

As Ashley settles in to her life at the lodge, she meets more of her new pack mates--including wicked, intense Jud. His touch arouses her hunger--and Blake's possessiveness. Lucas, the unyielding alpha, grows concerned with the attachment between Blake and Ashley and sends Blake out on a mission.

While Blake is away, Ashley meets the most elusive member of her new pack--the enigmatic Connor, a hacker who, like her, was raised among humans. For Connor, sex is volatile--dangerous--and being near Ashley draws out the feral edge of the wolf inside him. As Ashley's connection with Blake--and with Lucas--grows deeper, an outside force threatens the peace of the Last River pack.

Part Three (of Three)

As the full moon raises tensions--and appetites--Ashley indulges her wildest fantasies...and discovers what it truly means to belong to the pack. But Blake's control is tested as outsiders descend on the pack's territory, and Ashley discovers that following her heart may be the only way to find her mate.

Ashley's heart longs for one man, but her wolf demands that she test herself against the alpha. Can she settle for a life of never knowing, or will she risk everything for Blake?
I admittedly haven’t read a paranormal werewolf-y romance in a while. I had a traumatic experience when the last one I read felt it necessary to introduce “knotting.” Thankfully Protecting Their Mate avoided that animal planet lesson.
Moira Rogers, AKA the bomb-ass killer queen duo of Kit Rocha, return again but with a blast from their past as Protecting Their Mate has scored a re-release. Now while this is being released as a 3 part serial, I was able to get my paws on the full ARC.
Heads Up: This is an incredibly sexual story with many partners in the mix but it holds a very clear HEA in its fist.*cough* Ashley and Blake are pure FIRE!
Ashley is a female wolf in serious heat and Blake’s pack is itching to tangle with their first femwolf without terrible consequences, and find a mate.
The sex scenes are written so well and choreographed in such a way that doesn’t give you clumsy smut. You know, the scenes that halt you midway and wondering “but whose hand is that?”
The wolf flashes, I blame Twilight for my love of the descriptions in these moments. Having the pack battle was so wicked.
I am ready to learn much more about Grace and see her fur ruffled by Mac and Connor. Or hell, let me be real, I NEED MAC AND CONNOR.
