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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
-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 ...more
I just couldn't love it. It was ok.
Received a copy from the publisher through NetGalley.
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 ...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...more

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 ...more
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.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
definitely a series I want to keep reading
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. I wasn't as emotionally involved with the characters as I normally like, and it ...more
Wolf’s Mate by Celia Kyle is the first book in her Shifter Rogues series. Wolf’s Mate is the first book I have read by this author, but will certainly not be my last.
Fast paced with colorful characters, humor and action, Wolf’s Mate kept me on my toes! Abby is an easy character to relate to. She was both strong, yet carrying some scars from her past, making her all the more likeable. Kyle sets a fast pace with the storyline and ...more
Shifter romances are some of my all-time favorite paranormal reads, and I found WOLF’S MATE by Celia Kyle to be a solid entrance into a new world of furry characters. It wasn’t my favorite shifter romance, but I had a great time getting to know the cast of Kyle’s newest series, Shifter Rogues.
To summarize: SHOC Team One is on a mission to uncover proof of FosCo and its controlling intrest holder, Eric Foster, funding United Humanity (UH)—A terrori ...more
