Blake is on a mission from his alpha--to track down a werewolf whose parents dragged her into the human world years ago, one who may be in danger.

This is an erotic story that starts a series that was previously released under the name Mia Thorne but some readers will recognise the name Moira Rogers as also being a pen name for the amazing duo that is Kit Rocha. As I understand it although released again with a different cover the actual content remains the same.
This is just the beginning of Ashley's journey as she leaves behind her human existence and embraces her werewolf heritage. The story begins with Ashley locked in

Protecting Their Mate is a novel that was previously published as an eight part serial under the pen name Mia Thorne and is now being rereleased in just three parts under the name Moira Rogers. Just to be clear the story hasn't changed so if you read it in it's original format you don't need to buy this version. I've been a fan of the writing team behind the Moira Rogers for many years now but it's been a while since they had anything new under this name as they've been focused on their Kit Roch ...more

I am a huge fan of Moira Rogers other pen name Kit Rocha and I jumped on a change to see her writing style set to a paranormal story line.

This series centers around a female lost in the human world and her being rescued by the beta male Blake. Ashley has been told from a young age that she is just a normal human and that all the strange feelings she has experienced are wrong and that she needs to CONTROL her URGES!! All of that comes crashing down when Blake comes face to face with her and the u

I read the first part of this series as a kindle freebie that I got… who knows how long ago. The series has since been rebundled into 3 parts instead of 8 so this review is for the two parts after the original part one. Man that sounds confusing.

Although I’m a huge fangirl of the authors behind Moira Rogers, I have only read one of the titles under this pen name and never any under Mia Thorne (the pen name this series was originally under). I’m also not a huge fan of serials, they’ve never given me ‘enough’ and I’ve found they don’t make me crave the next in the serial, but I put aside my issues and decided to give this one a go because of the whole fangirl thing and I really enjoyed it.

This is part one of a three part serialisation, with parts 2 & 3 to follow in the next couple of months. The story opens with a young woman called Ashley locked in a basement. She's fighting down her werewolf instincts, which are telling her 1) that she should shift into wolf form and 2) that she needs to find a mate. Luckily, she's soon rescued by Blake, another werewolf, who begins to correct some of the many lies she's been told about werewolf life. The most important thing is that as she ...more

Extraordinary Wolf-pack romance story

Our heroine Ashley has been forced to deny her wolf her entire life. As we meet her she is locked in her parents’ basement and using her last drop of energy to break out. A last minute rescue surprises her:
“…it was the scent of him that crashed into her, something deep and dark. Wild. He smelled like the moon and the forest, smoke and pine and fur.”

She burns with both magic and the mating heat. Literally starved.

I love Moira Rogers books. They have a great combination of sexy fun times, with a great storyline, and amazing characters. This does not disappoint. Ashley and Blake meet when Blake is sent by his Alpha to check on her. He finds her locked in a basement, alone and hungry. Hungry for more than just food. Ashley is in heat, and only one thing will ease her hunger pains. Blake, and his fellow pack members, are more than willing to provide it. They will give her all she needs, and what's more, they ...more

The female lead is named Ashley, and the male lead is Blake. When we first meet these two, Blake is breaking down the door that Ashley is lock behind. It turns out that Ashley is a female werewolf who parents would lock her away when she was in heat. That is not good for a female wolf, it's not safe and they can apparently go crazy for it. So of course when Blake rescues Ashley, they end up having sex in the local motel to keep her safe and happy. But as the story goes on, you learn that Ashley

This is an intriguing start to a three part story. This story was previous published as a serial with the same title, as I've been told, the same content.

This is the story of Ashley, a wolf shifter, who has been encouraged by her parents to suppress the needs of her wolf and the pack who find her and want to help take care of her. This first installment of the story is pretty steamy, as well as the set up for things to come. I like the characters and am eager to learn more about them. I suspect

Blake is on a mission to save a woman who needs the help of the shifter pack. When he reaches her, he finds her a prisoner in her parents basement, starved and unknowledgeable of her family roots. Ashley is also a wolf shifter but she has never been taught how to find her wolf side, and she now is feeling intense sexual frustration as she goes through a mating fever. Blake can soothe her the only way he knows, but their passion soon becomes something more.

Ashley, our plus sized heroine, is locked in her parent's basement when she is rescued by the huge and hunky Blake. Ashley's family shunned their werewolf lifestyle to live among humans and Blake was sent to find her, and when he did their connection was a perfect mix of hot and sweet.

This is part one of a trilogy; a quick and dirty (literally and figuratively) read that promises so much more in the coming novellas. Very well written, as we have come to expect from Moira Rogers, and the story is

This is smoking hot!

Ashley is in trouble, she trapped and going crazy in her heat. She's rescued by Blake who is super hot and super dominant.

It's a really good start to this set of books, it's one continual story told over three parts. You get a quick introduction to the pack and the various characters then it gets down to business.

The sex is really good, it's raunchy, passionate and down right dirty. Great chemistry between all the characters and I've got a feeling it's just gonna get better

Besides a lot, A LOT of sex, there is an interesting (wolf)shifter story.... although, if the sex wouldn't have been there, the story would probably be less interesting, lol! So actually a good combo. Open ending for this short first part of the story, but part Two and Three (Protecting Their Mate: Part Two and Protecting Their Mate: Part Three) will be released shortly and I'll certainly read them. My rating: 4 stars for now, mainly because of the open ending.

Part 1 done (sent by the author in exchange for my honest thoughts). It won't be available until the 24th of this month, but here's my quick review. The writing is decent, but it feels like one book that has randomly been sliced apart and I'm not sure why the author decided to do that. The characters aren't very developed aside from the superficial "he's big and tough, she's naive but fierce" thing. I can only hope that improves, but for now, I really do

Ashley is a wolf shifter, taken from the pack to live amongst the humans as a child. Being told she had to suppress the wolf, never shift.

Blake is on the hunt for female shifters to bring back into the pack. When he finds Ashley, he can't believe it.

Blake's protective instincts kick in, however, he must bring her back to the pack.

This is part one of a three part story. It's a well written quick read that hooks you into the story. I'm going to read part two now!

I really enjoyed this quick little novella and can't wait to read what's next. Ashley has been raised human, but knows there it more to life. I loved that our heroine is "too much" to fit into the human world, but isn't afraid to embrace who she is and what she wants. Blake shows up to rescue her and take her to the pack. There are some pretty steamy scenes as she goes into heat! Moving on to Part 2 right away!...

Choosing to live in the human world, many of Lucas's wolf pack left the pack. Blake found Ashley (whose parents left the pack), in horrendous condition and brought her back to the pack.
Ashley's situation and rescue make for a good, quick shifter read. The story was strong in the beginning but morphed into more sex and less story in the second half.
Voluntarily read ARC for honest review.
