OMG I love this series. This is Ven and Caitlyn's story and OMG what a story. Caitlyn knows what it's like to be afraid and abused. The last alpha of the Black Hills pack made sure of that. Ven was abandon by his parents then abused by the uncle that was supposed to care. When Ven sees Caitlyn he knows that she's his mate but she's omega something he doesn't think he can take care of he's to rough and damaged. Caitlyn sees her mate and the first thing he does is scream at her well the heck with ...more

Merryn Dexter delivers a knockout with A Mate’s Redeeming Touch, her second novella for the Black Hills Wolves series! Her debut novella, A Mate’s Healing Touch, was a 5 Star read for me. It encompassed everything a great novella should be; tightly written, well-developed characters all wrapped up in a satisfying short story from start to finish. The chemistry between her characters emanates from the pages in sizzling scenes that solidify the mate bond they are fated for. If I remember correctly ...more

This book really touched something inside me and made me extremely emotional i am still feeling the effect that this had on me even now as i am writing this review. I am a big fan of Merryn Dexter’s work and she has the talent to bring her stories into your own world, she makes them real and brings hope to people who think they will never have their happily ever after. If this book can teach anything then it's to not give up and no matter how bad the situation or the past there is hope and happi ...more

Go home, Little Red. 5 GOLDEN WOLVES

I’m way too much Big Bad Wolf for you to handle. She had poked the Big Bad Wolf and she hoped she wouldn’t regret it. WHAT A HOWLING GR-R-R-REAT STORY!!! Now this is EXACTLY the story that Caitlyn needed, that I wanted and Merryn delivered! Oh baby did she ever!! I was horrified at what Caitlyn has been living with for the past 10 years! I don't know how she did it! Thankfully, Mates are the cure! wink You will have to read the book to make sense of that comme

I love the Black Hills Wolves series even though at first I wasn't sure how it would possibly work with various authors bringing their viewpoints while trying to be cohesive. I am thrilled that they have managed to give us some very good reads and A Mate's Redeeming Touch by Merryn Dexter is another successful addition to the series.

Ven is a foul mouthed, antisocial wolf who had been raised by an abusive uncle. Caitlyn Burrows had been one of the victims of the former alpha of the Tao pack. How

**4 out of 5 Hearts from Cariad Books**

Ven, a lone wolf that prefers to remain in wolf form, is being reassigned and will be working for Ryker, the Pack Enforcer. Ven, not the sociable sort, still struggles due to a difficult childhood.

Caitlyn, a victim of the former Alpha, Magnus, is returning to Los Lobos with her family due to her brother, Caleb's, recent mating to Hannah. Caitlyn, because of Magnus and his evilness, is terrified of men.

Fate steps in and brings these two troubled souls togeth

I received this for a honest review. I had read the first book in this series and truly enjoyed it.

Caitlyn Burrows had suffered so much and she has lived with the guilt of what had happened to her for a very long time. Her family regret not being able to protect her from the cruel Ex-Alpha Magnum Tao. Since her family relived the pain and guilt every time they look at her it is hard for Caitlyn to truly move on from what had happen. Caitlyn is a Omega and truly feels like the weakest of the bunc

Caitlyn is back to Los Lobos with her family despite the trauamtic past she has.
Caitlyn has been one of Magnum's victims.
What Magnum wanted..Magnum got!

Ven has been away from the pack for a very long time.
Being in the pack but always away was how he prefered things.
He did what he had to do but didn't like to be too caught up in with the rest.
Being a victim as a child Ven had to turn into a hard man and its no

Ven is needed by the pack to take over the local petrol station. It's goign to be used as an outpost for the revitalised pack, alerting them to who is entering their land. When he finally comes out of wolf form he realises that he had gone wolf for months. He always preferred being wolf but never had he stayed that way for so long.

Caitlyn had caught the salacious attention of the previous alpha and she and her family fled as a result. She is an Omega and will always be vulnerable. It had been t

Loved this book! Merryn Dexter has a wonderful way with the written word. This story flowed quickly and smoothly. I loved the characters and although their path was painful, Ms Dexter wrote about it with dignity and style.

Ven is a wolf shifter who grew up in Los Lobos under the reign of Malcolm Tao. He suffered abuse at the hands of his uncle and decided the best way to deal with it when he got older was to become a mean talking bad ass. That way, no one could get close enough to mistreat him ev

Merryn has done another AMAZING job with her second book 'A Mate's Redeeming Touch', book 44 in the "Black Hills Wolves" series. I'm so happy I was able to ARC for Merryn when I read her debut, then I was offered the chance once again & I jumped at it with grabby hands. I can say that I loved how we got a glimpse of how everyone was doing since 'A Mate's Healing Touch' but more importantly how Cait

Ven and Caitlyn, two wolves matched by fate but neither really can't belief they're chosen for each other.
Ven forced to be among the pack and humans, troubled with himself and his past is convinced he's no mate material and does his best to avoid Caitlyn at all costs. luckily his wolf has other ideas.
Caitlyn has her own crappy past, a past her family reminds her of every single day. moving forward is hard to do but now that they returned to the pack (now it has a new alpha) she starts to see th

As I began reading this it hit me the theme of her novels for this series (duh on me ) and I realized she has the touch to because this is a excellent theme. In this one another family has returned even though there history with former pack leader is tainted. Her family is determined to stand by her as Caitlyn tries to find happiness. She also has a very vocal twin that also has his issues. Ven has been by himself way too long and he is called in to restore the gas station plus it will be used f ...more

I received this story in exchange for an honest review. This is the story of Caitlyn—Caleb’s sister who also has a twin—Connor. After an obviously life-changing sexual assault at the hands of the previous Alpha, Caitlyn is painfully Omega in her behaviors and views of herself. She is practically scared of her own shadow when not in the company of her family until the day she meets her mate, Ven. Ven is dominant, intimidating, frightening, and brash upon their first meeting and still they somehow ...more

I really enjoyed this newest addition to the Black Hills Wolves by Merryn Dexter. My heart goes out to Ven, a wolf shifter who has remained a wolf for too long. His Alpha has decided that Ven needs to rejoin pack life and he will do this by fixing up and running the towns gas station. Forcing him to change back to human and to interact with people again is like the last thing Ven wants to do. Ven doesn't believe he is any good for anyone and when he meets Caitlyn, a wolf as broken as him and his ...more

A Mate's Redeeming Touch is an incredibly sweet story of two damaged souls finding each other and the courage it takes for them to allow the other to heal them. I usually don’t like characters like Caitlyn. She is timid and has taken on guilt not rightfully hers. But she pulls it together when she finds her mate and her being a service oriented submissive wolf may be the only thing that can get through Ven’s anger at the world. Watching these two find each other and a chance at the future was tr ...more

Ven is such an awesome hero, who because of his childhood, feels that he can never be a fit mate for Caitlyn. Caitlyn has just returned to Los Lobos with her family and her tortured past with the late Alpha leaves her fearing all men. Will they be able to over come their past? Will their past destroy their future?

Another wonderful story to add to the Black Hills series.This is a great story about two very opposite souls, who are true mates. Ven has some old scars which have left him angry all the time. Caitlyn is an omega who is shy and scarred. Both are the products of the old alpha cruelty. Will they be able to blend together? Will Caitlyn learn to embrace her courage? Can Ven rejoin the pack and become an asset? I enjoyed this book and give it 5 stars. I was given this ARC in exchange for an honest re ...more

The new Alpha, however, knows Ven has a lot to give to the pack and that he just needs to realize being in human form isn't all that bad. Caitlyn and her family have just moved back to the pack's area and Caitlyn is still dealing with her rape from years ago by the original Alpha.

Interesting read with full of good scenes! A Mate's Redeeming Touch is Ven and Caitlyn's story. Both characters has a past - and baggage - and polar opposites with each other. When the two met, things are not that pretty with both for them. As the story goes, their relationship with each other will get interesting and intriguing. But again, with their past experiences....it will get more interesting!

Nice read!

This book is a fast pace and very entertaining story. Ven and Caitlyn are mates. But they are also two people who have been abused by the ones who should have protected them. Now will they be able to put the pain and mistrust aside to begin a life together or will old wounds be to much to overcome..

Wow what i really wanted to do was reach in and shake the bad attitude out of Ven the way he spoke to his mate Caitlyn.
Two very opposite people who have scar's to try and heal,can they heal together and follow fates plan for them to be what each of them needs.
Great read and will probably re-read it in the future.
Highly recommend this book!!

A Mates Redeeming Touch broke my heart a bit. The story is written beautifully, the characters are very well rounded, and The ending was wonderful. Cat and Ven are made for each other! At complete different ends of the spectrum these too were in for quite the ride from the start.
