If only Raz had kept running, she wouldn't have wound up on wolf pack lands putting herself in double danger. A three-hundred pound Bengal tiger shifter, Raz had been caged for as long as she can remember; tortured, beaten a

This is a strange little story about shifters. It starts out with a tiger running through wolf lands and since that is against all rules, she is terrified for her life. When she hears pups screaming and crying, she knows she must intervene. And so, the story begins. Of course, she runs to help them and is attacked by hyenas. Gravely wounded, she is saved by the wolf pack. That is not a spoiler because this is just the first couple of pages, an epilogue of sorts.

I say it is strange

Raz escaped the cage she been in her whole life only to find herself tenderly trapped between the Alpha and the Beta of the North Woods pack. Readers can’t help but become completely engrossed in this decadent and gripping shifter romance with strong, vivid characters and a fascinating love. The relationship is full of depth and lots of emotional turmoil that makes it easy for readers to connect with them and understand their motivations and the passion is sinfully decadent and full of sizzling ...more

Furious and damaged

Razelle, Axel, and Xander come together when Raz protects two small wolf pup shifters from hyena shifters. Together they form a family unit that heads a large wolf pack. Even though Raz, a tiger shifter, does not remember her beginnings, having been raised in cages by humans for sport hunts, she knows that Axel and Xander , the alpha and beta, of the wolf pack are hers. During their courtship her mage powers start to be discovered and her lineage comes to the front. What does

Now this is the kinda book I've been craving lately. Well written, story moves fast but doesn't make you feel lost.

Raz is an awesome heroine and the backstory plays out thru the book showing much of what she'd survived as yet.

I loved the triad idea with the half brothers. Their fathers and mom plus their nanna were awesome characters. I want to read the backstory or even future stories of several of the pack members.

I want to know more of Avara and can't wait to see what next comes for the pa

A Sassy Heroine & 2 Sexy Mate...How Can You Go Wrong?

I loved this book! You are immediately taken in by Raz's bravery & selflessness from the first. Her quirky sense of humor & compelling backstory make this a great read. Her two sexy wolves were not just excellent imaginary eye-candy, but their compassion with a woman who was, in many ways, beginning her life from scratch was endearing.

I haven't read any of Ms. Carlisle's novels before this one, but I'm looking forward to reading more!

I like it

Sometimes I just want to escape from my own conflict. It's nice not have everyone in a book fighting or upset. I like that she is brave and fearless and ok being in a cage in animal form for all those years doesn't mean she be submissive she a tiger ppl duh. Keep them coming killing i just found you and read the omega series too love it

As I was reading, I kept wondering when the book would end. I paid for it, so I would at least finish it. It was not worth it. I give it 1.5 stars.


- 2 M wolf shifters, 1 FMC tiger
- overpowered FMC, but also super weak
- underdeveloped story and world
- love at first sight, too much “mate” this and “my love” that.
- overbearing/protective males (too much. controlled everything.
- Sexist. very sexist. not in a way that demeans, but more like men are cavemen who protect the weak women. ve

At 31%, I’m struggling to keep on reading. So much of this plot doesn’t make any sense.
She lived her whole life in a cage as a tiger, but somehow she can read. It’s like the author wanted her to have a tragic background, yet wants her to know all about the world, so the guards conveniently left a tv on next to the cage all the time, so she’s learned from that.

The book keeps repeating stuff and spelling everything out, so there is no depth, and nothing to figure out on your own.

Wow what a story this was to read, and i totally enjoyed the whole story. It certainly was page turning, and amazing. A wonderful HEA to boot. I must say this is a new Author to me and if she writes books like this often im sure i will become a number one fan.

Caged her whole life, Bengal tiger shifter Raz escapes and runs for her life. But as she nears the North Woods wolf pack lands, she hears wolf pups in distress as they are being tormented by hyenas. Stopping in her desperate running from her pursuers, she saves the pups, only to be injured by the hyenas and taken by the Alpha and Beta the pack who claim her as their mate.

There was actually very little excitement or adventure in this story in contrast to her having been caged for so much of her l

Raz was a tiger cub when she started living in a cage being tortured, beaten and hunted for sport. But she escaped and the hunters were chasing her to get her back but she heard wolf pups crying because 4 hyenas were trying to take them to the hunters. She stopped and started fighting with the hyenas to save the pups she got injured so bad that she almost died. She ran because she thought that the wolves were going to kill her for being on their land without asking but she didn’t make it very fa ...more

That is one resilient tigress

The author really keeps us on the edge of our seats with this one. The pack and Raz collide while going up against the same enemy, but it is so obviously fate that has brought them to this point. Action and adventure run rampant throughout the story as the alpha and beta do their best to navigate the murky waters of their newly discovered mates past and their soon to be future. I love how the author makes the past and present collide causing the tigress who had no f

This is the first book in the Fated Mates series of Lilli Carlisle. It's a fast paced romance story that takes place in an unconventional setting where shifters are humans that can take animal form and integrate with the humans. It's Raz's story and her fated mates who she has three of Axel Razelle and Xander. They all come together when Raz escapes hunters and hears wolf pups and goes to save them and almost gets killed and her mates save her.

Suddenly an Alpha and Beta wolf appear to fight off the hyenas surrounding Raz and they realize she is badly injured and also their mate. Will she survive? I enjoyed this romance.

No conflict to drive the plot

The plot felt stagnant and the characters had no personality traits that made me invested in the story. Everyone was just very kind and fell over themselves to accommodate the main character. It made for a boring read.
