Publisher's Summary

Tess Janver and Cole Cavanaugh fell deeply in love in college. Then, he disappeared without a word. She feared the worst, or thought she did. After seven years, he returns as a beefed-up version of his former self. 

That's not the only thing different. As someone working in a preternatural criminal investigation unit and the daughter of a senator determined to rid the world of dangerous shifters, Tess is caught between performing her duty to humans by protecting the only family she has left and risking her heart to a man who, once, destroyed it. 

Cole had no choice in becoming a Gallize shifter - a secret group of apex predators descended from a druidess - and now faces a deadline from a fatal mating curse he can't stop. The only woman he's ever loved is a human and wouldn't survive bonding with him. 

He never planned on Tess finding out he was a wolf shifter, but she's in danger from a rogue pack. He's not leaving until she's safe, and he has a chance to redeem himself in her eyes before his time is up. 

Enjoy a fast-paced, high-action romantic tale. Each audiobook in this series is a stand-alone. 

The New York Times best-selling author Dianna Love has created a unique shifter series with immortals, mages, witches, and sexy alpha shifters. Gray Wolf Mate is a truly ground-breaking paranormal romance.

Loved it!

This is a great book; this is the first book in the League of Gallize Shifters Series written by Dianna Love and narrated by Stephen R. Thorne. Tess Janver and Cole Cavanaugh fell deeply in love in college ... then he disappeared without a word. She feared the worst, or thought she had. After seven years, he returns as a beefed up version of his former self. That’s not the only thing different. As someone working in a preternatural criminal investigation unit and the daughter of a senator determined to rid the world of dangerous shifters, Tess is caught between performing her duty to humans, protecting the only family she has left and risking her heart to a man who once destroyed it. Cole had no choice in becoming a Gallize shifter and now faces a deadline from a fatal mating curse he can’t stop. The only woman he’s ever loved is human and wouldn’t survive bonding with him. He never planned on Tess finding out he was a wolf shifter, but she’s in danger from a rogue pack. He’s not leaving until she’s safe ... and he has a chance to redeem himself in her eyes before his time is up. This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. This book will keep you reading long into the night. If you are looking for a great book, then you need to read this book. I am looking forward to reading the next book by this great author.

Loved This Story!

I originally read this story when it was first published, but hearing the audio narration simply blew me away! I originally wasn't a fan of Stephen R. Thorne as a narrator, but I think he's gotten better over time. This was a great story, and I look forward to listening to the rest of this series!

Awesome audio!!

Gray wolf Mate by Dianna Love, First book in League of Gallize, narrated by Stephen R. Thorne.

Stephen Thorne does a wonderful job at telling the story that Dianna Love has written. The perfect tones for Cole and the others in the group as he brings the story to life for all of us to enjoy. I'm very pleased with his voice and reading skills.

This story is about shifters, but their not normal shifters, their Gallize, and they seem to be a bit more special than what we're use too in books. This story takes us to where shifters have been outed to normal humans, and now the world for shifters hiding in the dark is no longer possible. The government has a special unit that solves paranormal crimes, and Tess, Coles true love is in that unit.

Cole is a wolf shifter, a gallize one at that. When trouble comes, he figures he needs to protect the woman that he loves, and leave her again. Things just aren't that simple for Cole though because his wolf doesn't want to leave Tess. Cole is a different type of character, trying to be in a pack but having a lone wolf complexity acting like it's fine if he does things as long as others are safe. He gets put into a sticky situation with Tess and have to work with her, and the hurt he caused her in order to try and save everyone.

Tess isn't a bend the knee type woman. She does seethe over things that happen even she is angry about them. She's worked hard to get where she is and trying to figure out the shifter pack who killed her mother. When she runs into Cole again, the evidence says one thing but her heart says another. Trusting him will take time, trying to go through the hurt that she was put through by Cole and the misinformation to show he is innocent is another thing. She's got her hands full especially with the political side of things trying to go into play.

All in all this book is wonderful, and fun to listen too. Dianna Love writes it beautiful as everything flows nicely and smoothly together. There's not a lot of hiccups and things are kept secret and start to show more as we see more of the world Dianna has made and is sharing with us in the Gallize series.

An Emotional Paranormal Adventure

The world knows that shifters exist. That knowledge has resulted in so much discord and fear. Tess Janver is determined to learn as much as she can about them. She needs to know What really happened when her mother died when she was caught between two battling shifters. After all she lost everything, the man she loved disappeared without a word. Her father's hatred damaged their relationship. She needs to find answers. I was surprised that in spite of her personal tragedy she wants to understand shifters. When a rogue shifter is captured by SCIS, she feels a connection. Why? Cole Cavanaugh is a Gallize shifter. He's loved Tess since college. He broke her heart when he vanished. He couldn't let her know his secret. What a tragic turn of events. I knew that these two belonged together. I didn't think they had a chance to find a way to be together. This new series is an emotional roller coaster that left me drained. Tess and Cole are surrounded by evil that can't be stopped. Death is unavoidable. I cared for the characters. I didn't want hatred to triumph. I felt angry and frustrated. I couldn't stop listening to Gray Wolf's Mate. I felt the might of the destructive forces but I hadn't taken into account the power of love. Dianna Love put me through the wringer. The narration by Stephen R. Thorne added more emotion to this story. I can't wait for the next adventure. I want to see the League of Gallize Shifters triumph.
I received a copy of Grey Wolf's mate which I voluntarily listened to. My comments are my honest opinion

Gray Wolf Mate by Dianna Love

Gray Wolf Mate by Dianna Love

2nd reading via audible by Stephen R Thorne. Nice voice. Good inflection and easily followed tone.

First in the paranormal League of Gallize Shifters romance series.
Shifters have been outed and the world struggles.
Cole left Tess back in their college days when he became a Shifter, the ring still in his pocket.
He is part of a secret group that protects humans. Tess works for a government agency that investigates paranormal crimes.
Cole believes he needs to protect and then leave Tess again, but his wolf calls Tess “Mate”.

An engrossing adventure and compelling read. I stayed up well into the night to finish it.
I really wanted this couple to work things out. I wanted to yell at him to “have faith” but since his concern was for her well-being, I couldn’t judge him too harshly. Maybe she should have shared more of what was going on with her physically. Like the healed arm that no one really talked about!

Lots of depth and back story that has barely been covered or explained yet. Lots of secondary characters I want to know more about. I can see this series going far and look forward to reading more.

Great Book

This is the first in the Gallize Shifters series. It is very well written, and I enjoyed listening to this book.
Cole had no idea when he is captured after being in a bombing in a building that the woman in charge
is the woman he was about to ask to marry him before he abruptly disappeared and never thought he would
see her again. He is so swollen and bruised that Tess has no idea that it is Cole.
Together they must work together to find out who the mole is that is out to rid the world of Gallize Shifters.
Full of action and suspense. A great series to read and I highly recommend.

To Love or Die

Tess and Cole had been deeply in love in college ... and then he'd left her behind. Now he's back and somehow involved with the shifters the shifter criminal investigation unit she works for hunt down and prosecute for their crimes ... and it turns out, he's a Gallize - a special kind of shifter. She's not sure she can trust him but she definitely still has feelings for him. Things couldn't be more complicated ... or could they.
This first story in the Gallize Shifter stories is full of action, subterfuge, political plots ... had hot alpha shifters. Dianna Love spins a tale that is both complex and edge of your seat suspenseful with interesting, sympathetic characters, a star-crossed love story and enough hot sex to steam up a paranormal romance fan's favourite listening space.
If you're a fan of shifter stories, this one's a great start to a great series and one you really should add to your TBR.

Audio Review:
Stephen R Thorne is a great addition to this series. He narrates the way you tell a story - with appropriate inflections, but he does not play-act the story.

Awesome

This is the first book in the new League Of Gallize Shifters series, Gray Wolfe mate. I always enjoy whatever Dianna Love creates for us so I was excited when I found out that Dianna’s next series involved shifters. I loved it and couldn’t put it down!
Dianna has created a story that is definitely original in many areas to shifter books I have previously read, Such as humans knowing about shifters, and how the human world handles this. We get to see how both sides of the law, the Gallize shifters, and the preternatural criminal investigation unit SCIS, are dealing with the crime involving rogue or out of control shifters. Both sides are investigating the Black River pack that is making and distributing lethal drugs to shifters turning them into uncontrollable killers.
We also get the story of love lost, and love reignited in what seems a hopeless situation that will take everything they possess to overcome the odds and be together.
There is a great mixture of backstory, action, and romance that makes this a page-turner!

Just hmm

I love this series, the Gallize aren't simply more shifters, they're shifters with MORE. Power, Growliness, connection to their animal, they just are on every level. which means they're lacking feminine input even if they don't know it. If you haven't met this group of heroes yet, move them to the top of your to-buy list, I promise Grey Wolf won't let you down.
