Book Blurb:

Member of the Black Hills Pack in Los Lobos, South Dakota, Jace Matthews is sent to check out the new owner of a piece of land adjoining his packs. Once he steps into her small bookstore in Collins, he’s taken by surprise by the small, prim woman behind the counter. At once, he recognizes his mate. While the wolf inside urges him to complete the bond, Jace knows he must take his time with his human mate. But when danger arises, threatening Michelle’s life, Jace is done waiting. It’s time to claim his mate.

After she inherits her aunt’s property, Michelle Sanders moves to Collins, South Dakota, to escape the monotony of her routine life. Unfortunately, the only person she manages to befriend is not only the hottest guy on the planet, but also gay. However, she never expects a favor for her sexy new friend to result in a series of weird events that will change her life forever.

Jace Matthews’ eyes followed the rhythmic sway of his mate’s heart-shaped ass as she walked up the aisle to the sales counter. Damn, he couldn’t wait to strip her bare and sink his teeth into that tender flesh. Suddenly, those tempting globes stopped. He blinked and his gaze shot up to find Michelle frowning over her shoulder at him.


Embarrassed she’d caught him staring, he snatched the closest book on the shelf beside him, waving it in the air like a kid who’d won a life-sized stuffed animal at the county fair. “Got it.
Thought it might be out of stock.”

Real smooth, jackass.

She arched a delicate brow over the rim of her glasses. “Are you ready to check out, Jace?”

“Yep, I think this’ll do it.” He soaked up the sound of her sweet voice and followed her to the register.

Two months ago, when he’d come to check out the new owner of a large parcel of land adjoining his pack’s hunting territory, he damn sure hadn’t expected to find Michelle Sanders. Once he’d stepped inside the small, quaint bookstore she’d owned in Collins, he’d caught a scent that had eluded him for thirty-two years.

His mate.

ARC Claiming His Mate

Claiming His Mate is part of the Black Hills Wolves series by M. Limoges. This is my first experience with M. Limoges. The cover is attractive and the blurb is interesting, as for the book it was just ok. 

Claiming His Mate is a quick read only 50pages. The plot has been done before, so it was eh, not really anything big or drastic happens. With the characters they where ok, not all that engaging. Unfortunately I was not feeling a connection to our characters. I would have liked more of their courtship, before the bad guy comes in and the mating takes place. I also wanted to learn more about the pack, but we don’t. We do get a brief introduction to Jace’s best friend and sister, but no really interaction with any other characters. As for the sex we only get two and in a short read that’s ok, but they where blasé. 

As short reads go Claiming His Mate was good. It filled a void.
