Blurb:Alpha, Tate Hunter’s job as a bouncer at the shifter-only night club, The Love Knot, is pretty routine – tossing out drunks, breaking up fights – but when he saves an omega from a hungry pack of alphas, he catches a scent that will change his life forever.
Kyle Crubbers is going nowhere – living at home in the room he grew up in, spending his nights alone, until his mom convinces him to leave the house to search for a mate. But seriously? The Love Knot? That’s not where you find Mr. Right – it’s where you find Mr. Right Now!
Tate can’t believe it when he catches the scent of his fated mate, but to his horror, the beautiful boy is being attacked by an alpha named Lucas and his pack of sickos, looking to bump fuzzies with the nubile omega whether he wants it or not. Leaping into action, Tate saves the poor guy from whatever horrors they had planned for him.
Taking him to his lodge, Tate tends to Kyle’s wounds, and the two know without a doubt that they’re meant for one another. Tate is determined to claim his mate and put a pup in his belly, but it’s not long before they realize the other pack is still out there – and they’re hunting for Kyle.
It’s time for Tate to step up and be the alpha leader he’s meant to be. But will he be able to form a new pack in time to stop Lucas and protect his new omega?
…The scent of a fated mate…It’s a one in a million miracle most wolves never experience, and he will do anything to make sure Kyle is his forever.
Claiming His Mate is the first in the Scarlet Mountain Pack series, with no cheating, no cliffhangers, and all the spicy, knotting, MPREG goodness to melt your Kindle screens. Don’t say we didn’t warn you…;)
My Review: Tate’s job as a bouncer at the Love Knot is usually just a show of dominance where certain other alphas like to show off. Tate’s very good at reining in his wolf most times. However, when he smells the sweet smell of an omega who is exuding fear and realize that it’s his mate, Tate loses it. Kyle’s night on the town turns into a nightmare before it has really begun, when an alpha and his betas try to kidnap him. He starts to scream when he realizes he’s in real trouble. When alpha Tate comes to his rescue, he knows he is faced with his mate, a dream come true. Tate quickly kills the two betas, but the despicable alpha Lucas gets away.
Tate is eager to take his mate home so he can recover from the failed kidnapping. Kyle is excited when he first sees his new home. Tate talks about his dead parents and the legacy they left for him. He talks about how his father envisioned a big pack like home that could be a safe haven. Kyle loves to see his alpha’s passion and knows he wants to make that vision come true by being the best mate possible. Tate can’t wait to bond with his mate , but Kyle hasn’t had his first heat yet or lost his innocence.
Their vision starts to come alive when Tate’s friends Bryce and Martin comes by to see how they fared after the attack. Bryce proposes that they form their own pack and that Tate become their pack alpha. Tate is excited, but knows he needs to talk to his mate first. Kyle is just as excited and encourages his alpha knowing what a great leader he will be. Before they know it , their pack has grown in size with the newest additions being Kyle’s mom and Bryce’s sister. The pack house is coming together nicely and everyone is settling in.
Finally, Kyle’s heat hits and Tate is overcome with the need to be buried inside his omega. Kyle can’t wait for Tate to be his first and only. Tate introduces his sweet innocent mate to the unexplored passions of the mated bed. It is enlightening and all consuming for them both. There is nothing like the bond between mates. The next morning it is through that bond that Kyle knows that there is trouble on the horizon when he wakes to an empty bed. Tate, Bryce and Martin has gone out to deal with the troublesome alpha Lucas who is infringing on their territory. It soon turns into a bloodbath. Tate kills another beta, but Martin his friend is seriously injured. They are afraid they will lose him when a small group of foxes jump in and offer medical help.
Tate and the foxes alpha Red make a pact to fuse both packs together to fight against Lucas who is a thorn in their sides as well. Tate sees how much their medical training will come in handy when Kyle announces his pregnancy. Everyone is ecstatic about their news and life continues as usual. They all live communally, even the foxes and it is clear that both packs have mutual respect for each other.
The next attack couldn’t have come at a worst time, Kyle is in labour. Tate takes the time to reassure his omega that he will come back to him safely. They have a heartfelt parting, but Tate needs to face impending danger so he can protect his precious omega and their pup. Kyle is worried, but he knows he has to do his part in delivering their pup into the world with the help of Osana, the fox medic.
Tate and his pack emerge victorious from battle , but definitely not unscathed. They have lost one of the foxes Ethan and Bryce is injured. Tate goes back just in time to entreat his omega into pushing their bundle of joy into the world. They name her Scarlet in honour of Ethan’s red hair. They are all saddened by their loss, but they see great things in store for the future of the Scarlet Mountain Pack. I give this my ratings of 4- lose the underwear.
