Publisher's Summary

She ran from him once....

Wild one night stands are not Ella Hayes' style, but with her confidence at rock bottom after a devastating betrayal and her painful departure from her jaguar pride, who could blame her for falling into bed with a sexy wolf? She never thought she'd see him again. And never in her craziest dreams did she expect to come face-to-face with him on her first day with the Kincaid wolf pack. Sleeping with Asher had been one of the most intense experiences of her life - but now she wonders if they could have more.

He's not letting her go again.

Tired of life as a lone wolf, shifter Asher has joined his cousin's pack. The last person he expected to see was the sexy woman who ran out on him in the middle of the most incredible night of his life. The Ella he meets now is nothing like the wild, sensual woman he let his guard down with, but he likes both sides of the complicated female. But now somebody - or something - sinister is targeting Ella, and Asher moves quickly to get her under his roof and under his protection. Keeping the sexy female safe and proving they belong together are two missions he doesn't plan to fail. Because this time, he's playing for keeps.

Looking for a fun, steamy read?

Looking for a fun, steamy read? Tempting his Mate fits the bill!!!!!

“My name’s Asher,” he rumbled in that deep voice and she realized she’d been blatantly staring.
“I’m Ella.” And she wasn’t going anywhere, she realized. Not until she got a taste of this sexy male. Something told her one taste wouldn’t be nearly enough.

Looking for a fun, steamy read? Tempting his Mate by Katie Reus writing as Savannah Stuart is the third spicy installment in her Crescent Moon paranormal romance series which focuses on a wolf pack in Gulf Shores, Alabama. This is the story of Ella, a jaguar shifter cousin to Lauren, and Asher, Max’s sexy lone wolf cousin. Lauren’s and Max’s story was told in the second book, but this installment can be easily enjoyed as a stand alone if that is your preference. I’ve actually read this series out-of-order and don’t feel that doing so has impacted the pleasure I derived from any of the books.

As the story opens, Ella has left her jaguar pride to accept an accounting position with the Kincaid wolf pack in coastal Orange Beach, Alabama after having a falling out with her sister. As Ella is on her way to her new pack, she stops for the night and decides to do something totally out-of-character for her: She visits a seedy shifter bar where she hooks up with sex-on-a-stick Asher. They have a phenomenal evening, but, in the morning, Ella runs from Asher without a word. Little does she know that the sexy wolf she just slept with is tired of being on his own and has also accepted a job with the Kincaid pack as its new chief of security. Her life just got a lot more complicated.

In addition to the romance, there’s an interwoven danger element. I really liked both Ella and Asher. She told him he was going to have to work to court her, and he does!

Following please find a few of my favorite quotes from Tempting His Mate:

“What are you looking for?”
The look he gave her pinned her to the spot. “You.”
---
“Stay with me. I want your scent on my sheets.”
---
“Lose the pants,” she murmured.
His head tilted slightly to the side, his eyes narrowing a fraction. “Are you ordering me around?”
She grinned. “Maybe.”

Jeffrey Kafer does a great job narrating the audio. This isn’t the first time I’ve listened to him. I love his voice. It’s strong, deep and easy to understand. His sexy Asher voice was utterly swooney. Both his male and female voices sound genuine and remain consistent through-out. The end product is polished perfection. Seriously, if you get a chance to listen to the audio of this book, don’t pass it up!

Katie is one of my favorite authors. Even though this tale is novella-length, there’s no short shrifting in the plot or in the characterization. It kept me engrossed for hours …twice. I read the kindle edition, then thoroughly enjoyed it again in audio. If you like passionately hot shifter romances paired with suspenseful undercurrents, I’d highly recommend that you check out Tempting His Mate and Katie’s entire Crescent Moon series!

Loved Asher!

I like how this author is able to still provide us with pretty dominant shifters that are all in the same pack. They may be lower in status from the alpha of the pack, but you don't really notice that with how well each of these men work together. I loved everything about Asher. Ella did push away just a bit but it wasn't too bad to ruin my enjoyment of this book. Overall another great couple the series.

SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST TEMPTING

I have read every book in this series and I have enjoyed each one. This series is a perfect example of short and sweet with just enough steam to leave you panting. Both Asher and Ella are dealing with insecurities. Ella’s insecurities come from a betrayal by her sister and Asher insecurities have made him question his worth as a mate. But when these characters meet, chemistry and instant attraction throws all insecurities out of the window for one night. At least, that’s what Ella thought until she realizes her hot one night stand, now works at her new place of employment.

The character building is this book is fine. Since it is a short story, I wasn't expecting too much but I was pleased with the development of the characters considering the length of the book. Since I have read the two previously books in this series, I’m already familiar with the world that this book takes place in. This book can be read as a standalone but it would be so much better when read with the complete series.

I adore Jeffery Kafer voice. The man is like silk chocolate, smooth, rich and ohh so sweet.

IMO, just buy the book. You can’t bet this for a quick, enjoyable read.

Quick listen. Great plot.

Tempting His Mate is a novella/short story in the Crescent Moon Series by Savannah Stuart. I really enjoyed this story and was able to listen to it in two trips to the gym. It is about Ella (a jaguar shifter) and Asher (a wolf shifter). Ella is leaving her Pride and moving to be closer to her cousin (who is mated to a Wolf) to work for her and get away from where she is. The main reason she is doing this is she feels stifled/restless where she is and needs a change – the second reason is that her ex-boyfriend and younger sister mated and didn’t have the decency to tell her before they announced it to the entire Pride – so she was blindsided by this and doesn’t want any pity. As she is traveling to her cousin’s place she stops at a Shifter Bar looking to be a little wild for once. She hooks up with a Wolf Shifter (Asher), they have an awesome night together and she takes off. Fate then steps in and Asher and Ella meet up again. Asher’s cousin is the head of the Pack that Ella is going to join. As this is a short novella I am not going to go into too much more of the story and spoil it but – Ella makes Asher work for their relationship. Throw in some missing money, breaking and entering and a renegade vampire and things do get interesting. The pace and flow of the narration on this story was great. Jeffrey Kafer does a great job with the characters. There was an easy transition from listening to reading and back again with this story. There were no noticeable mistakes or breaks in the recording.

Steamy and Romantic

I absolutely love the stories, the narrator is perfect for it. It is very U18 but not too much.
