After the surprise of Ms. BJ Wane writing a Cowboy shifter book, I looked forward to reading more, and she did not disappoint with the third story of Drake McCullough and Roz Kingman. These two characters each have a secret past, one that still haunts them and one that holds them back from moving forward. Both harbor feelings of guilt, anger, and live with the nightmares and fear that the past will come back and destroy any chance of a future.

BJ Wane has written a 5-star book. This is the story of Roz and Drake. Roz is at home packing when her husband, Dean comes home. She thinks, he was not supposed to get the divorce papers until later that day. They get into an argument and he grabs her by the wrist, she knees him and they go down. When they go down, he breaks her arm. He is mad now and comes after her, she hits him with a lamp and he goes out. She calls 911 and when they get there, they notice her arm. She has to go through two s ...more

This is book three in the Cowboy Wolf series. This can be read as a standalone. I haven't read the first two books and I didn't feel lost. I did enjoy this story so I'll be reading the first two books. It's smoking hot, entertaining and I couldn't put it down. It's well written and the author has a way of pulling you into the story. I'm fairly new to shifter romance. I'll be adding more to my reading list.

This series continues to keep you completely riveted to the page, the characters are simply wonderful and the manner in which they are written by this author continue to hold the readers attention fully so that you are unable to put them down until you reach the last page and discover the outcome.

Just when I think a series can’t get better as it moves on, BJ Wane’s Drake comes along and surprises me. While I absolutely adored the first two books in her Cowboy Wolves series, this one just floored me with how great it was. The characters are like night and day, oil and water, but they fit so well together. And I have never enjoyed a heroine as much as I enjoy feisty Roz Cunningham.

Oh, the heat is HOT, and the physical chemistry is captivating so be careful you may just get burned all the heat coming off these pages. There were some "oh no" "oh wow" " what the what" moments and add in uncanny mishaps, and shenanigans the good kind that makes you keep turning the pages till last page has been turned. It wasn’t what I expected but loved every page Drake was a POW who escaped but has to deal with the aftermath of it all and Roz is a vet with an abusive and a cheater husband w

Submitting to Her Mate: Drake is the third book in B.J. Wane’s Cowboy Wolf series and my absolute favourite story to date. Drake is a stoic character struggling with his past, and even though his actions were more than justified the demons that haunt his dreams refuse to abate. Determined to avoid the risk of hurting another, he shirks his brother’s insistence that he needs a good woman. But a feisty, brash and somewhat reckless vixen with demons of her own, is about to turn Drake’s solitary and ...more

I am really loving this new series by BJ Wane. Cowboys are a favorite and so are shifters. When you put the two together, well magic can happen. Roz is left an abusive relationship but her ex inlaws want her to pay for what she's done. She decides to live her life and ends up in another state working with the local vet, Dr. Dennis. I really enjoyed how even though she thought her time was limited, she didn't let it stop her from having fun and making new friends. Sparks fly when she meets Drake ...more

Drake is the brother whose story I’ve most been looking forward to. There’s just something that calls out to me about the wounded veteran, that made me need to know more about his story. I loved Roz. She’s fierce yet soft. Able to submit to Drake’s alpha personality, but she’s got a core of strength that she won’t sacrifice for anyone now. The pair each have their secrets which keep them from fully opening up to one another in the beginning. And as with the previous books in the series, I think ...more

I have enjoyed the other two books in this series, but this one was the best. Both Drake and Roz have secrets, fears and guilt. When Roz’s husband broke her arm and threatened more bodily harm to her because she was leaving him, she fought back in self defense when she hit him with a lamp. No charges were filed against her, but her ex-mother-in-law has sworn revenge for her son’s comatose state. Roz accepts a job in Idaho at a veterinary clinic and welcomes the move and hopefully a new life with ...more

'Submitting to Her Mate' is the third book in BJ Wane's "Cowboy Wolf" series and it's just as good, if not better than the first two. We get to meet Drake McCullough, retired Marine, with nightmares of being captured and tortured until his wolf took control. And then there's Roz Kingman who has her own sorted past with an ex who is so abusive she had to defend herself and his mother who is intent on putting her in jail even though she was justified in her actions.

Book 3 does not disappoint!

Wow! What a great third book this was! I have been looking forward to reading Drake's story ever since he was first mentioned in the first two books. Both those books gave the reader hints of Drake. I was quite excited to see that he got his own book. This is a great series. I love reading about strong characters who overcome impossible situations to find love. Drake and Roz both have their own demons to live with and overcome. Can attraction and love overcome that? Yo

This is the third book in the wolf cowboy series, but can be read on it's own.

Roz nearly killed her husband in self-defense, he is in a coma since the attack. After some healing and a lot of hate from her by now ex-in-laws, she moves to a small town to work together with the local vet. Here she meets Drake, a wolf-shifter, who not only suffers from PTSD, but also is afraid, as he had lost control of his wolf when he was in captivity in Afghanistan.
Roz plays with fire, tempts him, when he tries to resist the call of his mate bond.

When you see BJ Wane's name on a book, please don't ever doubt that it will be a good read. This is no exception. Two wounded people. One who finds it hard to leave his past behind and the other whose past is chasing her. She just wants to get away from the trauma she's faced and live life as long as she can. She's reaching out for everything she's ever wanted in case it all comes to an end. He can't understand the urgency she feels, but as a shifter, he does understand his need for his mate eve ...more

BJ Wane is a great writer of BDSM erotica, so I was surprised to see that she has a series of books about shifters. I have not read the first two books (yet!) but I had no problem following the storyline. This is a standalone story, but I am definitely intrigued by the other characters and will start reading the other books immediately.
This book has it all: well developed characters, great world building, drama, adventure, romance and very sexy scenes. The chemistry between the main characters

I enjoyed this story, the first I have read by BJ Wane. Roz and Drake made for an interesting couple, both with painful and guilt-ridden pasts, dealing with those in different ways. Roz was a kick with her bucket list and her willingness to try new things. Drake kept everything inside as punishment and did not want to disrupt his family and their new lives. The loyalty of his family was heart warming, and they gave their support to Roz as well. There were some steamy scenes and quite a few momen ...more

Oh wow I do so love reading this series...being the 3rd in the cowboy wolf series and it’s as far as I’m concerned better than the first two and they were a hot read too...
Roz had left her marriage after an abusive encounter with her husband leaving him after she divorces him and finds a new start in another state and town, but the past has yet to let go of her...until she meets Drake...
This story has heat and light hearted humour mostly from Roz as she jokes with Drak

Roz meets Drake and decides he can help her with her bucket list but all Drake wants is to be left alone. Drake knows she is his mate but because he suffers from war related PTSD he tries to avoid her. Unfortunately Roz is determined and finally breaks through his defenses. There is a lot happening in this story including revenge that could cost Roz her life. This is a great story that is easy to read, full of emotions and sexually charged. I loved it and would highly recommend it.

There is so much about Roz and Drake's story that is going to hit you right in the feels. I really liked these two. Their painful pasts and heavy baggage made them complex and easy to feel for. I honestly do not think you can read this book and not have your heart ache for them. The skillfully written storyline firmly ensnares you in its web of drama, tension, turmoil, emotion, intrigue and intense desire and has you very happy to be there.

I loved that Ron wasn’t your typical abuse victim who had been beaten down by her situation. She was smart, funny and went for the things she wanted. Drake suffers from PTSD and didn’t want a mate, but thankfully that part of the story didn’t last long and he realized he didn’t want to lose Roz. Good conflict, great loving and the HEA we all wanted.

Drake and Roz have baggage. Drakes wolf knows Roz is his mate. Drake doesnt want a mate. Roz thinks her time is limited and doesnt want a relationship only a fling. They cant keep away from one another. Then Rozs past comes to her and Drake will do anything to protect her. Loved this book. Loved the push and pull of the characters chemistry.
