Don’t Mess with Texas!

Professionally written and extremely fast-paced, “Hunted and Claimed” is the seventh entry in the Wayward Mates series, catapulting the concept of an alpha female to an entirely new level. Disillusioned by the apparent lack of action by the male dominated coalition to halt the abduction, exploitation and forced breeding of females, Riley (aka Colleen) an alpha female, flees her birth pack in Ireland, for America, to actively rescue females abducted by rogue packs. Eventuall
Kathy Heare Watts

The story is the sixth book in the Wayward Mates series and is a continuing saga. It will have many key characters from the previous books and will introduce Colleen Riley Gentry Byrne from the Galway pack in Ireland and Cameron Nicholes of the Galveston pack in Texas. The story is how these two will meet and realize they are fated mates—even if Riley will fight against it.

“Colleen Riley Gentry Byrne would cease to exist. Riley Gentry would emerge, like a phoenix, to

"Cameron  had watched her with nothing less than awe. She was truly magnificent . A bloodied warrior with no fear and lethal skills."

This has tied for first place as being my favorite in the Wayward Mates series!  Delta James brings us a kick butt alpha she-wolf with a heart of gold in Riley and a  tough, protective, and understanding Alpha male-wolf in Cameron!

Riley is an Alpha she-wolf that has run away from her pack to live her life on her terms.  When she gets wind of the disappearance and t

Can you deny his calling, his pull on your soul your mind and the need to feel him? The spitfire Irish and her Texas Cowboy learn you can’t fight fate no matter how far or how fast you run! Loved this book and the characters, it is a definite recommend !!

This book was a ton of fun to read. It was so entertaining I did not want to put it down at all. I absolutely loved it. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book in exchange for a free copy.

I FLOVED this book, IMHO it's the best one yet. In fact I was that drawn into the story I read it in one day. This features Riley and Cameron, we've not really met either character before, though both have been hinted at/been in the background. I either want to BE Riley or marry her (even though I'm straight and been married for 24 years). God that woman is kick-ass. Cameron was pretty decent too, though he paled in comparison to her absolute amazingness. My word she led him a merry dance with h ...more

I loved the blurb about this book and jumped straight in. In retrospect perhaps I should have started from the beginning of the series. Each book’s blurbs state that they are all standalones. That may be the case if you have no intention of reading any of the others. I now realise that the characters from the previous books all appear in this one. I do not know as yet whether they run chronologically with one couple continuing on after the last in any sort of timeline. One thing I do know is tha ...more

Hunted and Claimed is a fast-paced adventure ride and easily the best of James’ Alpha Shifter romance series. Riley and Cameron, our heroine and hero, are both fully formed, mature people, both alphas, and their strong wills provide much of the rationale for the clashes and struggles they face.

So many times in books that feature a form of power exchange or domestic discipline, the reasons for the discipline are disconcertingly flimsy, and that erodes the quality of the relationship for me. Hunt

One again this talented author has written a magnificent & intriguing shifter romance, it is the seventh book in the series “Wayward Mates” There are some character crossovers but this book is standalone & complete.
The plot is excellent, well-thought out & written, it definitely keeps the reader’s attention. The characters are well-developed & entertaining with individual personalities, this causes personality clashes & verbal conflict at times but at other times they entwine fairly well with ea

So, we have a "kinda, sorta" cliffhanger. I don't know if it has been a while since I read one of the Wayward Mates books, or if it really seemed as though Riley fought longer and harder against being claimed then anyone else.

Cam and Riley have this intense chemistry. There is plenty of snark, anger, love, and humor. There is love and loyalty to the pack. There are a ton of pig headed, over protective dominant men. There are also submission, spanking, and detailed sexual scenes. If any

Loved, loved, loved this book! I have read and loved most of Wayward Mates and love that they are standalone but all tie into one another as well. The books are well-written with a shifter-breeding/trafficking social justice side story running through them. The women are strong and the men are stronger in order to protect them and their pack. In this book, Riley leaves her childhood home and her pack run by her older brother and becomes an avenger...determined to locate and free shifter females ...more

Riley is another feisty wolf and slips through Cameron's fingers on more than one occasion. The men in this series are quite trigger happy with their discipline and very determined to keep their women away from any danger. In this book, Cameron recognised Riley's strengths and went some way to acknowledge them and assure her that she would not be left out of the recovery effort. This was certainly progress and an improvement on how mates were treated in earlier books. However, Riley does not ack ...more

A really good shifter romance.💞🐺💖💞

Colleen "Riley" is a she-wolf who isn't one to idly sit by an try to fit in. She's an alpha in her own right and expects to be treated as such. But when her brother says it's time for her to settle down and find her fated mate she simply can't do it, so she runs off to America. Cameron is the alpha of his pack and is well respected but he's recently decided that he's missing something... or someone. But he won't just settle for anyone, he wants his true mate. Wh

This is another wonderful story in this series. Each novel is a stand alone so there is no need to start at the beginning other than the fact that if you don’t you may end up missing some awesome stories! The plot is well thought out and I really enjoyed it. The 2 main characters are fated mates but Riley (the female) is doing everything she can to not mate with Cam (the male character). They are both alphas and Riley wants to be by herself doing what she wants, helping other wolf shifters who a ...more

First of all, let me tell you that I love this series! The women are so strong and the men are wonderful overprotective asses! 😁 Riley and Cam are no different.

Riley has run from her pack so that she can have her own life. She spends time with Bae Diogel and Skylar before they are disbanded. Riley rescues the women that are being stolen and abused by the clans that don't have mates. She is found by Cam and he realizes that she is his fated mate. Riley doesn't disagree, she just doesn't want to

I have to say that once again Delta has done an amazing job of this book. I just loved Cameron for Riley, what a Alpha cowboy want a Alpha Cowboy gets.
Riley has run from her clan, and now she owns A Resturant, the thing is that she hasnt got in contact with the Alpha in the Area. And that Alpha.... Cameron and he has just learned that there is a rogue female wolf in his area.. When he takes her back to his clan, after letting her know she is his mate, she runs.

Delta has given us book 7 in her Wayward mates series and it’s getting really exciting.
I really loved this one so for me it’s the one of my favourites.
Riley is a born shifter she-wolf and an alpha in her own right has left her Irish pack to make her way in the world in a time where it isn’t safe. And as a result becomes kind of like a super hero by saving captured and tortured women who have been kidnapped by other packs.
But after dicing with chance she found herself under the scrutiny of Camero

Every alpha deserves a strong mate... And Cameron just may have met his match in Riley. The women in this series are all strong, talented and capable; and Riley is no exception. I love how the tension and connectivity runs through this series, and this book just may be my favorite to date. Then again, I feel that way with each of the couples who are swoon- and drool-worthy in their own rights. Each is unique yet perfect for one another. But I must admit that the tension and suspense building in ...more

Riley does not like the way her society's traditions treat women and mating. She wants to do her own thing not be mated and spanked when she does something deemed wrong by men. So she runs away from her home in Ireland living her life how she wants.

With all the rescues she has been doing, she has been brought to the attention of the rogues that want her dead and the Counisi want her stopped. Some of the wolf packs have gotten together to rescue the women and stop the kidnapping altogether . Riley feels that the wolf packs are slow to react with informatio ...more

This is a standalone in a series, but it helps to have read the previous books. This book definitely ended on a cliffhanger and I was surprised where it ended. I would assume the next book would focus on another girl, but then that won't show us what happens next or the fallout from it. Riley is sassy Irish girl who doesn't want to follow the tradition of being told what to do by an alpha, especially since she's the sister of one. She's been helping trafficked and stolen females escape but is de ...more

She's a feisty, bratty red-headed Irish alpha she-wolf that is dead set on avenging female wolfs in oppression; she been running for years from pack and alpha, rules and traditions, and she isn't going to let an arrogant, know-it-all alpha stop her, especially if he's her Fated-mate. She's on a mission. This story is a continuation of the series so expect spanking and tears, dominance and submission. The ending will get you because I can't quite tell if it is a cliffhanger or a . . . What would ...more

Excellent storyline, well written, full of action and keeps hour attention. This is a continuation if the series and involves Riley and Cameron being fated mates. Riley had been working on her own to free females who have been kidnapped and used as breeders. Along the way she meets Cameron and from there the story gets heated. The sexual interaction between the two of them is very erotic and well written. There is a HEA for them but the series continues with the packs trying to bring down those ...more

She may be a shifter born but she is all alpha and she is determined to help females who are living with mates that do not respect them This is the seventh book in the series and to me it is by far the best For one thing I think it shows that the girls/women who we all thought were been punished into submission are actually doing a lot undercover that no one realises Maybe all their alpha mates are in for a shock I also loved how Riley won't let Cameron dominate her she is determined to keep up ...more

Riley flees Ireland and goes to Texas where she frees kidnapped women. Cameron isn't happy about a lone wolf on his land and it's a female lone wolf. When he tracks Riley down he finds out that she's his mate. Now he needs to keep her from running away like she did in Ireland. I seem to have stepped into the 7th book of the Wayward Mates Series. I love strong females that don't put up with males who are overprotective and bossy. I liked this story and will go back and read the other 6 books in t ...more

All of the characters in this series are strong - both women and men. However, I really thought Riley ranked up there in the top three if not the top herself. Cameron had his hands full with her antics. As usual, this story has heartbreak in the background (the sister anyone?) while maintaining the intense connection between reader and story. The humor is contagious as each of the women perform their parts of the puzzle. Thoroughly entertaining, I enjoyed this book so much. I highly recommend th ...more

This is now my favorite book. I say this with every new book in the series. But Riley and Cameron really make a great couple. Riley fought harder and longer than any of the other fated mates but even as she fought it, she knew he was her fated mate.

I will admit that when the story ended I literally yelled out loud... “No, she did not end it right here.” The ending was completely unexpected and now I can’t wait for ...more

I have read a lot of these types of books lately and honestly found this one to be refreshingly different. Her writing draws you in and keeps you involved throughout the whole story, I found myself in love with not only the characters but also the world she created.
Her descriptions of the characters abilities are so involved, you can truly picture it in your mind. Their attitudes toward the events that are happening makes the story even richer.
