Publisher's Summary

She thought the house was empty when she broke in....

When jaguar shifter Lauren Hayes breaks into an alpha's home to steal back what rightfully belongs to her pride, she doesn't expect to be tackled by Max McCray, second-in-command of the Kincaid wolf pack. As punishment for her crime the sexy wolf shifter demands that she stay with him for one week. Knowing she'll start a war between her pride and his pack if she doesn't, she has no other choice but to agree, even if the thought of being near him 24/7 makes her scared that she won't be able to hide her growing attraction to him.

Now he has a week to make her his....

Max has waited months to make a move on the sexy jaguar shifter and now that she's broken shifter rules, he's not letting her go. He doesn't care that he's a wolf and she's a jaguar, claiming her forever is the only thing that matters. Unfortunately, not everyone likes the idea of him being with a feline shifter. Max is forced to choose sides between Lauren and members of the pack he's sworn allegiance to in order to protect the woman he knows is his destined mate.

Another Audible Hit!!!

Would you listen to Claiming His Mate again? Why?

I would absolutely listen to Claiming His Mate again because I enjoyed the audible as much as if I read the book myself. I read the book and I find myself laughing at the same parts as I did in the book, which is a bit surprising because when I read the book my character have their own voice and with the audible you have one voice that did an amazing job portraying all of the characters I love.

What did you like best about this story?

I love paranormal reads and this audible is exactly my type of enjoyment.

Have you listened to any of Jeffrey Kafer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes and I loved his voice in this audible as much as I loved it in Taming the Alpha.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I finished the book in one sitting and would listen to it again especially when on the go.

Pretty good short PNR :)

3.5-4 stars

This was a pretty good story. I liked both Max and Lauren and their story was enjoyable and worked well for it's length. This is the first story I've read by this author and I liked it well enough I'll probably try more of her work in the future.

Lauren is a jaguar shifter that owns a day spa. Her sister is getting ready to be married and there are some family jewels that should go to Lauren's sister that are in the possession of the local wolf shifter Alpha. They tried to get him to give back the jewels but he wouldn't return them. With the Alpha gone on his Honeymoon with his new mate, Lauren and some of her cousins figure it's perfect timing and devise a plan to steal back the jewels.

Max is the second in command of the wolf shifter pack. His Alpha is on his Honeymoon and has left Max in charge which is a lot of work. Max met Lauren months before and knew she was his mate. He planned to pursue her but his mother died and he had things to take care of before he could properly focus on courting Lauren. Before that can happen Lauren shows up at the Alpha's house trying to steal back the jewels.

Lauren knows when she's caught that her being there could cause some major problems between the jaguar and wolf pack. Her father (the jaguar Alpha) doesn't know she's there and she aims to keep it that way. When Max (who she's secretly wanted since she first saw his months before) offers her a deal of staying with him for a week as recompense for the break in Lauren feels it's best to accept. She does feel an attraction to Max but tries to hold back, figuring noting long term could work between them because he's a wolf and she's a jaguar. Max makes it his mission to change her mind. The mutual attraction is strong but Max doesn't push things at first, allowing Lauren to stay in the guest room While she's staying there, Lauren finds that many of the wolf pack are very nice and welcoming and she starts making friends. Things progress between her and Max but just when things are starting to work out, multiple issues arise that seem to be aimed at Lauren. There's some tense times as things get worked out but once they're settled Lauren and Max start their HEA.

This was a pretty good story. I liked both Lauren and Max and didn't have any real complaints about them. The story was well written and worked well for it's length. I'm curious enough that I'll probably go back and read the first book in the series. I'd recommend this story. :D

I really enjoyed this!

I so wish book 1 was on here. I really liked this. I am become a fan of Katie Reus, one story at a time. It was a perfect mix of drama, action and shifter love. Perfect!

So worth a credit, buy or sale. Narration was awesome. I actually started looking for books narrated by Kafer, he was that good!

A sexy, erotic paranormal romantic mystery!

Claiming his Mate by Katie Reus - writing under her pseudonym of Savannah Stuart - is a sexy, erotic paranormal romance paired with suspense and danger. Katie is one of my favorite authors. She never fails to deliver a polished, page-turning read and, boy, does she do exactly that with this installment. It’s the second entry in her Crescent Moon series, but it can be easily enjoyed as a standalone if that is your preference. This is the story of jaguar shifter Lauren Hayes, youngest daughter of her pride’s alpha, and wolf shifter Max McCray, second-in-command of the Kincaid wolf pack.

As the story opens, Lauren is in the process of trespassing into Kincaid territory to steal a brooch that had belonged to her family. That brooch is located in the Kincaid pack’s alpha’s house. Her timing should be perfect because the house is sure to be deserted because the alpha and his mate are on their honeymoon. However, Lauren wasn’t figuring on Max picking up her scent and being stationed in the house. Punishments for invading another supernatural’s territory can be harsh.

Once she’s caught, they make a bargain. He’ll give her the brooch she desperately wants in a week if she promises to stay with him in his home for that week. Trademark Katie, there’s also a mystery element. In this case, despite being under Max’s protection, Lauren is in danger. AND, once Lauren’s father finds out about the botched theft and Lauren’s bargain, war between the pack and the pride is a very real possibility.

Following please find a few of my favorite quotes from Claiming his Mate:

“Was it possible the giant wolf shifter had actually gotten sexier in six months?”
---
He wanted her scent invading his home, his sheets, his bed.
---
Lauren was his and he wasn’t letting her go.

I listened to the audio edition of Claiming His Mate narrated by Jeffrey Kafer. He has a strong, clear voice which is easy to understand. He never fails to exude the proper emotions. I love his deep and swoony male voices, but, he also does a great job with female voices as they sound genuine. His performances are always polished and professional. I look forward to listening to more of his productions soon!

Katie is one of my favorite authors. She never fails to deliver an engrossing tale. Despite the novella-length of this story, both the characters and the plot are well-developed. The primary characters are likable and genuine and I loved how they couldn’t keep their thoughts and their hands off each other. This is the perfect escape read when you just want to get away for a few hours. If you are in the mood for a passionate, exciting, fast-paced paranormal read paired with a mystery, I’d encourage you to check out this gem of a paranormal, Claiming his Mate! I didn’t want to put it down until I’d listened to every single word.

Hot. No kissing-only crap. Narrator's PERFECT.

Better written than most of the so-called real literature I've read in the past few years. Katie Reus's craft is sharp and sexy, and her heroine is proud to know what she wants and grab it back with claws when it grabs her the same way.

Jeffrey Kapfer's low, musky growl is perfect for the material.

This landed in my life the very second I needed it. And I did need it.

If you want hot, uncompromisingly modern wolf/jaguar romance, look no further.
