Blurb:Before the Love Knot, before the Scarlet Mountain Pack…
Alpha, Bryce’s job at the lumber mill is hard and routine, but when a new omega shows up for work, his scent leaves Bryce helpless and he knows he’s found his one.
Clarence is taking his first job at the mill to learn about wood and become a carpenter like his fathers. He’s ready for the hard work, but he isn’t ready for Bryce.
Bryce knows what that scent means — it means he’s just met his fated mate! But there’s a major problem: Jeremiah, his cruel, sadistic pack leader, wants Clarence for himself. He’s going to take him back to “The Booty Wing” of his motel to be used as just another captive breeder to provide him with pups. But Bryce isn’t about to sit back and watch that happen.
With a decision that will change his life forever, Bryce revolts, attacks Jeremiah and escapes with Clarence on the back of his bike. They spend an unforgettable night together, but when Bryce wakes up in the morning, Clarence is gone without a trace.
Three years later, and Bryce is living at the Scarlet Mountain Pack lodge with his new pack leader Tate, when he catches a scent…a familiar scent…one that he hasn’t smelled in three years, and it’s going to change everything.
Claiming His Love is the second book in the Scarlet Mountain Pack series, and can be read as a stand alone but is more rewarding as part of a series.
Filled with spicy, knotting, MPREG bliss, no cheating and no cliffhanger, this book is extra spicy! Be careful your Kindles don’t set on fire.
My Review:From the moment Bryce sees the shy omega walking in the mess hall at the mill where he works he knows it’s his fated mate. From the look on the omega’s face, he feels the same pull. There is just one problem, Bryce’s arrogant alpha Jeremiah wants to claim Clarence as a brood mare. Bryce tries not to openly show any emotion toward the omega, because he knows his alpha will use it against him somehow.
Clarence is only at the mill to learn about wood so that he can one day take over his father’s furniture business. He is certainly not expecting to smell his fated mate as soon as he walks through the door. Alpha Jeremiah also poses another problem, it is obvious he thinks he is entitled to any omega he lays eyes on. Clarence knows he is in true danger when Jeremiah and a couple betas kidnap him after work. Bryce knows he needs to come up with a plan to rescue his mate. When he notices the betas leaving Jeremiah’s room, he knows he has to act fast. He attacks and kills the betas and before the alpha even knows what’s happening, he is flat on his back with an enraged wolf on top. Bryce incapacitates him and flees with his mate on his bike.
Bryce finds them a safe haven staying with his friend Martin. Clarence feels like he can finally breathe and enjoy being in the presence of his fated mate. The passion ignites between the two men and carries them down a road filled with lust. Bryce knows that his innocent omega has not experienced his heat, so he finds other ways to explore his body while leaving his innocence intact. Little did they know that they would only have one passion filled night, before Clarence vanished into thin air.
It would be three long years of heartache, pain and hard living before they are reunited. In that time, Bryce has met new people that have become lifelong friends. Tate is one of those people, the alpha of the Scarlet Mountain pack founded on Bryce’s insistence. They are truly growing as a pack and have done well for themselves protecting each other. In the meantime, Clarence has been living like a slave under Jeremiah who blackmailed him into leaving Bryce. Jeremiah uses the threat of killing Clarence’s parents to keep him in line. The only good thing is that since smelling his mate, Clarence can’t experience his heat with anyone else. That is the only thing that saves him from being sexually abused by Jeremiah. It doesn’t stop the violence however.
It is purely on a whim that Bryce is able to find his mate again. When two of the foxes Red and Kitchi inform Bryce that there is a wolf pack on the edge of their territory, they decide to check it out. Bryce is incensed to see the much hated alpha Jeremiah again,but it’s his mate’s scent that bowls him over. He is overjoyed , but also filled with rage. He unleashes on a few of the betas quickly killing them. Bryce only injures Jeremiah, but he realizes that the place will be overrun if he doesn’t take his mate away. They barely make it out alive.
Once they are safe back at the pack house Bryce explains the situation to his alpha Tate. Tate understands and supports his decision to get back his mate. When they are alone, the connection between them sparks. The feelings are unadulterated and primal and causes the dominance to explode from Bryce. He knows he is a little bit rough and tries to temper it, but Clarence gives himself over to that primordial instinct that Bryce shows of needing to mark his mate. Clarence relishes the power of Bryce’s untamed passion. They make the most of the night, because they know their troubles are far from over.
They strategize the next day and come up with a plan to strike first. Bryce acknowledges he needs to eliminate the threat of the other alpha. It is not made easy, especially since he has to take Clarence back to sway a few of the alphas to their side. Everything starts off as planned, but when a group of betas target Tate and he is seriously injured, it all devolves. It is sheer determination and the fear for Clarence that keeps Bryce fighting. In the end he kills Jeremiah, but he doesn’t walk away unscathed. He has been shot in the stomach.
It is touch and go there for a bit at the Scarlet Mountain Pack, with two of their main alphas down. It is weeks before they recover. Clarence stays by his mate’s side and try to coerce him back to the land of the living through their bond. Finally, Bryce comes back to him and Clarence can give him the good news that he is pregnant. Bryce is over the moon when he hears this. The Scarlet Mountain Pack is definitely filling up with two new alphas and a new baby on the way which turns out to be a boy named Bruce. I give this my ratings of 4- lose the underwear.
