Never thought danger could be so fresh, hot and humorous in a world where alpha shifters get all the tough jobs and one woman becomes job one for the heart! Celia Kyle’s WOLF’S MATE is a great take on paranormal romance that sizzles with passion, blazes with action and bursts off the pages with fabulous dialogue.

Abby has always played it low key and safe after the horrors she experienced as a young shifter, so when she finds herself in the middle of a game of dirty money and danger, she found a

This is my first time reading Celia Kyle and I was completely sucked  in by the paranormal tone. I love a good shifter tale and this book sets up what seems to be a very promising series.

Wolf's Mate introduces a group of fierce yet fun shifter soldiers of sorts that are part of the SHOC team. This group of sexy dangerous shifters are on assignment watching the ins and outs of potenrial threats to their kind. While

Cute romance. Nothing fresh under the moon, but cute. Fluffy, too. (And that undercut the plot in its serious or dangerous aspects.)
Wasn't strong enough to make me care about the sequels, but it had some good points, one being that even if they were mates, it took all the book for them to have sex (95%) and declare their love. Yes, it's still a mate thing, but there is no bond nor mythical connections :) You take your pleasure where you can *grin*

Not really much else to say, you have probab

I really liked this shifter book and it had all the elements I enjoy in paranormal romance. If honest I actually enjoyed it much more than I expected because I normally associate this author with fun, quirky, sexy, fluff which quite often often is relatively short. So I'm delighted by this pairing of Declan and Abby and yes it's the first in a series so lots to set up and a team of shifters to meet . Yet it didn't suffer for that and rather it told a credible story that made sure these shifters ...more

I had a blast reading this, it was so freaking fun! A lighter paranormal romance with really likable characters. It was fast paced, kept me on my toes, and left me excited for the next book.

Declan and Abby were so fantastic. They've got the light hearted animosity and chemistry down. I loved the playfulness between Declan and Abby, their fun conversations and flirting. Since they're shifters, there's an added element of their animals liking each other as well while their humans selves fight it t

I wanted to like this.  By God, I did!  I've been basically starving for good ol' paranormal romance and I was so excited that I saw a couple of new series pop up on my radar these months.  But as soon as I opened up this book I got this feeling it wasn't going to go my way.

It really is nothing against the storyline because it wasn't half bad.  It wasn't the writing in itself either.  But first, the characters and their approach rubbed me the wrong way from the beginning and it never let up.  I

-Good start to new shifter series. Ms. Kyle is one of those authors that I know can bring it when it comes to shifter romances, a special weakness of mine. Some are hits and others, well not so much, but this series definitely has the makings of hit. It has all the elements that I enjoy, good smutty romance mixed with humor and action, so let’s discuss.

I was so thrilled when I saw that Celia Kyle was picked up by one of my favorite publishers. I've really enjoyed the books of hers that I've read. She writes the type of books that I enjoy, I always finding myself laughing at something her characters have done.

So I was so happy to see that she had a new series for me to enjoy. And what a series it is. I can tell by just the first book that I'm going to be loving it

This book has left me with mixed feelings. On one hand, I loved Declan with his dangerous past and overly protective ways. On the other hand, I didn't feel connected to the other characters or the fight they were involved with. So I read this story and enjoyed parts of it but was left with some issues. Thus my 3 1/2 star rating.

Declan is part of the Shifter Operations Command but not really by choice. He's a guy that has had a bloody past. We learn some of that and definitely the way

Fast paced, suspense and a new world of shifters, Ms. Kyle introduces me to an exciting new series. I have read Ms. Kyle before years ago and enjoyed her work. They were short stories and engaging. It seems I have missed out on a bit as her latest story is meaty and more robust. Her characters are fun and headstrong. Abby is a do good-er who keeps her shifter side quiet. Declan is a ruthless killer who will do whatever it takes to take out the anti-shifter organization. When the two cross paths, ...more
Wolf’s Mate was ridiculous. I wanted to like the story, but both main characters made such ridiculous choices I couldn’t keep going. Declan and his team were supposed to be black-ops agents, but he made questionable choices that put him and others in danger. Abby supposedly grew up really rough and had to learn to defend herself, but she didn't have any training and constantly ran into danger just because she didn't want to be left behind. I made it through about half of the book before giving u ...more

This book was amazingly written and had the best characters interaction and dialogue I have read in a long time. I loved Declan and Abby. They were on fire and even with all the crazy going on, they still had that undeniable CLICK.

This story delivered a heroine I LOVED who really held her won, with an alpha who gave that word true meaning. I couldn't wait to see where the story was going and by the end I was hooked. I want more. Celia Kyle has a way of

( Wolf’s Mate. Sure, the title sounds like a paranormal romance, but I will say this one has plenty of suspense and violence to possibly interest even an urban fantasy fan a bit. This was my first read by Celia Kyle and I can safely say that I would be interested in reading other books by her.

Love Declan. I love how even though his co-workers were like family he went against them for Abby at first. He listened to his inner wolf and protected her. He at first denied that she was his mate thinking it was just an insane attraction but as the wolf reached out to him he found more and more that she was the one for him.

Abby is a cougar that is smart and a survivor. She was working and got into a dangerous situation. One she was determined to expose

I have to be honest. I had a hard ... HARD time getting into this book and it saddens me because I adore Celia Kyle. It is slow and the 2 MC take FOREVER to get together as in "doing the sexy". There is no cohesiveness at all within Declan's team, yes sure I understand that were supposed to be the badass of all the badass but their group is a hot mess.

Tasty shifters are all on the menu, but one morsel stands out in Wolf's Mate! Declan is one sexy beast and he has his eye on Abby! Intense action from start to finish! Wolf's Mate s an interesting look into another shifter world where the human fanatics want to obliterate all shifters. A great start to a new series with plenty of steamy moments. I look forward to reading more from Celia Kyle.

First book in Celia Kyle's new series Shifter Rogues, Wolf's Mate is a paranormal romantic suspense. I really liked the premise of the book but I did have some issues with it. It kind of just threw you into the story, the guys a have been a team for a while and you can tell, with how it just throws you in it almost feels like you're missing something in the story.

This book took your typical shifter mate story and threw in buckets of danger, deception, and the introduction of a shadowy organization. Essentially, it threw you in the deep end of the pool, with shooting and running and general chaos.

Abby is a mild mannered accountant who has been tasked with auditing at her recent company. While looking through their transactions, she discovers that they are linked to a fanatical anti-shifter organization. She does the right thing and tries to squirrel away

When she finds out what a large sum it is she makes sure to back-up all her work and try and get out of there.

They are doing surveillance on the company that Abby is doing an audit on. Declan has been drawn to her from the very beginning though he isn't quite sure why. His wolf will not let him walk away from her. When things start to go sideways, as Abby discovered something she wasn't meant to, Declan steps in to rescue her. His wolf demands h ...more
