3.5 Stars. Vinnie finds his mate in Shayla when making good on a marker for a rival MC. He's protecting Shayla from a mostly unknown threat. Their initial interactions were full of animosity, frustration, and a whole lot of sensual tension. As they get to know one another, they discover a connection that won't be denied. Their relationship moves very fast once they decide to be together. Fast enough, that they don't really iron out what they expect from each other until they are on the other sid ...more

Vinnie grew up without a family, coming of age in the foster care system. After a rough childhood, he finally found his place as a member of the Wind Dragons MC. When a member of a rival yet somewhat friendly (?) MC calls in a marker and asks Vinnie to keep his cousin safe, Vinnie's warned to expect a week with an entitled princess.

After her father got sent to prison for some Mafia related book cooking, Shayla found herself on the run and living on the down low. Vinnie's only

Chantal Fernando revs up her readers to another sexy, dangerous and highly intoxicating MC romance in her latest installment to the Wind Dragon Series. If you haven’t been following this series, shame on you because you are truly missing out on reading one gritty and fantastic MC series.

This series has consumed my life for four days so far. I am so in love with each and every one of these characters. Vinnie has been an important figure from the very beginning. He has that young brother vibe for all the old ladies that have joined their family. He’s sweet and caring and always there to protect those that need it.

So when Talon from their rival club calls in a market, he’s there to do what he does best...protect Shayla, Talon’s cousin. Vinnie’s preconceived notions are not even cl

Wolf’s Mate is a standalone but is part of the Wind Dragon series. I haven’t read a Chantal Fernando book in ages. I forget how much I love her MC stories. There’s something about them that just gets me hooked from page one. They are pretty easy to read and the storyline is very engaging.

Vinnie is now a member of the club and his assignment is to baby-sit. For seven days he has to watch out for Shayla. I love the storyline! You know fun times are going to happen during those seven

"Love the man, love the club."

That's part of the 'old-lady law' that you must accept if you find yourself in love with a member of the Wind Dragon MC. Being a huge fan of this series, I've watched the badass bikers, one by one, find strong amazing women even when they aren't looking for one. And let me tell you, they are very entertaining when they get together and compare notes. I've had my eye on Vinnie for a while, waiting for him to find the one. But he's been stubborn, deter

I’ve enjoyed The Wind Dragons MC Series despite a couple of hiccups here and there. Apart from Wild Ride (which I considered incomplete), each book in the series has been a solid read. It was because of my frustrations with Wild Ride that I delayed reading Wolf’s Mate, despite purchasing it as soon as it was released. Somehow I had an inkling it wasn’t going to work for me and unfortunately my intuition was spot on.

For the first half of the story, I found myself begging for some kind of action.

I'd been wanting to read about Vinnie for a while, especially with the last book teasing the beginning of this book with the situation that was going on… It was interesting because it only starts out as him fulfilling a marker, but it turns into so much more.

The way Vinnie and Shayla got together was unconventional but it worked for them. They really got to spend a lot of time together, and they got to know each to her well beyond the perceptions. I really enjoyed getting to know Vinnie, his pe

Well, am a minority in this book. It didn't blow me away, the beginning was boring AF, i had to skip some pages. It was the same old story for me - if you have read so many MC Romance stories. Nothing original.

I probably shouldn't rate it, because i kept skimming and skipping pages but i got to 100% at that's something...right?

It started off really good, I loved Vinnie and Shay. Once it hit 60% it just seemed liked the whole storyline had already played out and I became so bored. Nothing was happening to add to the story, it dragged, and it was taking me a long time to even get through one page. I also didn't like that Vinnie never went by his road name. Kind of made me feel like he wasn't really part of the family of the club. And don't even get me started on how the timeline of the previous novella does not

If you’ve been wanting to check out an MC series, this is the series to read! I am in love with all of the men in the Wind Dragon’s MC, and was ecstatic to finally get Vinnie’s book!

Vinnie has always been the lone wolf of the MC, hence his road name “Wolf”. He sticks by his brothers, and keeps his word. So when Talon calls in the marker that is owed, Vinnie packs up to spend a week protecting Talon’s cousin Shay. He goes in expecting a spoiled lit

I really like this series. This book is Vinnie's and Sharon's. She is in hiding from the mafia after her father has gone to prison and Talon calls in his marker for Vinnie to watch her for a week. What none of them expect is for them to hit it off and Vinnie to be so protective of her.

He doesn't like how Talon had been handling he so he take her back to his clubhouse to protect her and she end up getting along with everyone. Things start going from bad to worse and they have to make a plan, the

WTF Are You Reading?
The down and dirty drama, can't get enough characters, and so so sinful sex, that readers can't seem to get enough!

The fifth time defiantly proving to be more than the charm. As the best of two MCs come together. With one mission in mind, and this's personal.

Wolf's Mate is the story of Vinnie and Shayla. From all appearances, Shayla is a girl who has it all. Designer labels adorn all of her clothes. She's been educated at the finest schools. She lives at the best address

Well, can't say I loved this one, or even liked it. The later Wind Dragons' books seem to be a mix of previously used plot stories and a stream of the same characters with minor differences. I need something fresh from this series, no more kidnappings, no more pregnancies or killings for no reason but just to drive the plot forward and no more lame porn-ish dialogue and situations just to get the character to have sex.

I never really connected with Vinnie and Shayla mostly because it was so out

First, I loved this book, so what I’m about to say may sound a bit weird. What is up with that blurb? That’s not even remotely a good blurb. Not only isn’t it accurate, but it tells you NOTHING about this book at all. Vinnie isn’t newly initiated into the club in this book, nor does anyone call him Wolf. Wolf is his road name but I think they mention it once, maybe twice throughout the book. This is NOT the blurb on the back of the book, however this is the blurb on Goodreads, Amazon and B&N.

I loved every moment spent with Vinny and Shay omg. Sure to start Vinny was cranky and though he’s always been the sweetest he also was clearly going through some things so I’m not mad at him. And shay is just a joy, happy and smart and fun and sweet. So perfect to temper how serious Vinny can be. We are still dealing with traitors in other clubs though and I’m frustrated we were only given more questions and not enough answers.

I really enjoy this series and have loved getting to know each of them a little bit more with each book. Rake has always been my favorite but there was always something about Vinnie that kept me interested and I always wanted more of him. I'm so happy we got his story.

Vinnie owes a marker to the President of Wild Men MC, a rival club to the Wind Dragons. When this marker is called out, Vinnie is asked to protect a woman that is close to the rival club. As soon as he meets Shayla, he's instantly

3.5 / 5 Fangs

Wolf's Mate proved that Chantal always writes a fun and steamy book! Even though there were some things I didn't like about this book, I still enjoyed it as a whole.

When the main female character, Shayla, was first introduced in Vinnie's POV, I was turned off from her right away. Shayla was portrayed as a spoiled brat, and I didn't want any part of that. I am glad that I didn't let that stop me from finishing the book, because Shayla turned out to be very likable! The more that I

4 stars for Vinnie's story! I always forget Vinnie had a road name because I don't even think it was ever used before. I loved the Vinnie that was shown through the previous books so I was thrilled he got his own book. Without a doubt, this is my favorite MC series and I have to thank Chantal Fernando for writing it!

This is a really excellent MC series, especially if you're someone who enjoys the sweeter side of the leather wearing dudes (and ladies).

When Vinnie, aka Wolf, gets his marker called in by rival MC member Talon, he's obligated to babysit Talon's cousin for a week and keep her safe from the men who want her dead. Wolf has no use for high-maintenance, bitchy women, and something about Shayla Anderson sets his teeth on edge from the moment he met her. But once he gets to know her, Vinnie realizes

I love Chantal Fernando's MC series. It just gets better and better.

Vinnie was the prospect that all the brothers trusted to watch their women. And now finally he is a Member of the club. And his first assignment is paying a marker for Talon babysitting his cousin.
Talon can't trust his own Mc to watch her as h is having issues and there is a leak in his club. So he's calling in his favor with the Wind Dragons.

When Talon calls on Wolf to pay his debt, Wolf figures it would be something club related. Maybe he'd rough someone up, or take care of something for the club. What he doesn't expect is to be called upon for babysitting duty. Talon's cousin is in over her head and has the Mafia after her. Since Talon knows his MC is a bit shaky and not the safest or most secure place for her, he decides to move her around to secret locations and have a few trusty people keep her safe.
