Brand meets his dream girl in college - a half-human, half-leopard shapeshifter who cannot shift. Werewolves and cats are natural enemies but the power of their sexual chemistry overwhelms them. She steals his heart and makes him whole. When she abandons him it fractures his world, and he knows no woman can ever take her place. Though many seek his attention, he is cold and unattainable.
The love they share is soul deep, but the fate of Charma’s family lies in her hands. The memory of every heated touch they share will cut out both their hearts when she leaves him, but to save them all she must run. After nine years of desolation and heartbreak, Charma is back. She risks forfeiting her life to warn Brand of an impending attack, but she doesn’t hesitate. Brand has her in his arms once more, and he will never lose her again.

Missouri Mom with lots of Opinions! Love to listen to Audio Book Series!
After nine years, Charma comes back to warn Brand of an upcoming attack. Being together with Brand again Charma is now in the life she always wanted with who she always wanted.
This is the newest book in the Mating Series. If you have not read this series and you love werewolves, you should check this series out. I started reading this series after I got into her New Species series, which is one of my top picks.
I enjoy Laurann Dohner's writing, characters and story lines. I am enjoying this series and look forward to upcoming books.
G.C. VanCoudts narration is great. Her voice is perfect for this series and made the book that much more enjoyable.
L Dohner is the queen of shifter sexiness! Mating Brand is the 3rd in the wolf shifter series, and like it's companion books it was hot, super romantic and pretty funny, which was an added bonus. I'm also a major fan of the narrator, her voice fits the characters really well; I almost forget she's a woman when she does the male voices, and that's saying something! If you're looking for a lot of depth and realistic situations, this isn't the book for you, but it's great for strictly sexy entertainment purposes. I highly recommend this book (series), and happily spend a credit for it!
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Brand and Charma come from two different worlds and their kinds aren't allowed to be together. I hear you. I too hate when characters are ripped apart for years then brought back together, but this worked for me. Charma had to make some tough choices at a pretty young age. The cat shifter community runs with stricter and more harsh laws so she did what she had to do to save her family, leaving Brand behind thinking that maybe he could move on and find someone who could really be his mate...
Nine years later Charma is stuck with an abusive husband/mate who she was forced to be with to keep her family safe. He is abusive in all ways and it’s extremely heartbreaking. The first 10% really pulls at the heartstrings in making me feel for Charma and understanding why she did what she did. Now that her family is safe she could run, but she doesn't have anywhere to go and has no idea how to even find Brand. She believes the chances of him not having moved on are none. Then one day she finds out her pack is about to attack another and she sees his photo in the stack of targets. She still loves him deeply and if there is one thing she can do it is at least save his life and warn him of what’s coming...
Most of the story is a gush of love and mating heat sex with a nice dab of Action included into this wonderful mix... This book is Full of All the Good Stuff Laurann can throw into a fab story... Bring on book 4, I cant wiat :)
Traveling therapist listening to AUDIBLE books while driving to far areas. Also host/produce radio show on KGLP 91.7 on staying positive!!
This was a wonderful true long lost love can conquer all story. Laurann Dohner's story of different species falling in love can be replaced with different races, culture or religions. The differences will always be present but if the individuals TRULY love each other. There will be a way for a happy ending. (fantasy but totally sweet) This story of college (shifter) lovers from different worlds and family responsibilities reveal that people trapped in unfortunate circumstances CAN get a second chance to be with their TRUE mates. This was worth the money & credit. I hope Laurann Dohner give us MORE stories about the Harris family. These shifter wolves seem like a cool open minded (royal alpha) family. They welcome true love over keeping their pure wanted alpha blood line. I would love to buy more stories about them..
I am open to reviewing quality products.
I was really hoping the next book in the series would be one of the brothers. Brand is delicious, but I was digging all those smexy siblings.
The book is slightly non-linear, we get the back story and then jump forward nine years. My major problem with the plot is that they were together and she leave him to mate with someone else. In my world that smacks of cheating. I know there are circumstances, aren't there always.
Brand is delicious and Alpha and oh so protective. I kind of like that he was all about forgiving and getting his woman back. I was expecting that to be a bone of contention, but he was awfully sweet and understanding.
Charma is great in the beginning, then that mating takes a lot of the spunk out of her. It is nice to watch her grow and get back to who she was before. It is a tough journey.
Again with the insta hate between shifters. I feel like that is strange. I know they are basically dogs and cats, natural enemies, blah, blah, blah. The problem I have is that they are humans as well, they live in our society, so general rules should apply. Trying to kill someone on the street or fearing you will be killed in a college classroom, seem extreme. Okay, so I guess I have two complaints.
The rest of the story flowed nicely. Plenty of action and movement in the plot. I love the mixed narrative, it really helps you understand the two leads. Hearing their POV gives you greater insights into their motivations and feelings.
Oh course the steam is yummy and oh so detailed. Reunion smexy time is hawt!! What I wouldn't give for a smexy dominant wolf!! They really know how to talk naughty and follow through!!! Have a very cold shower ready!!!
I listened to the audiobook narrated by G. C. VonCloudts, who does a great job. Plenty of variation in the voices and consistency. She has a great tone that leads itself to the material. I loved her energy throughout the read, especially in the naughty bits! The girl gives good voice!
I do enjoy this series and I can only hope there will be more. I think it is kind of on the back burner because of Ms Dohner's other more popular series. Fingers crossed there will be more to come and all the siblings get HEA!!
Love to read
