The Mating Hunt

Paranormal Romance – Shapeshifters – 18+ Adult
WARNING: This is a book containing explicit sex. 

Welcome to the sensual world of the Lupine, where the burning drive to mate claims all…

Arianna Sanders doesn’t remember everything that happened to her when she was 12. All she knows is a savage monster left her terrified of sex and a freak among Lupines, werewolves known for their sensual nature. Her guardian is the only male she trusts, the one she secretly desires. Arianna longs to overcome her fear and make love with the sexy, mysterious shifter. But Kyle Morgan harbors a dark secret, one that if Arianna knew, would send her screaming into the night.

The fiercely protective Kyle hungers for the voluptuous Arianna, who’s been teased for her generous backside. He thinks she’s perfect and dreams about consummating the passion smoldering between them. When Arianna makes a lethal mistake and is told she must mate before the full moon or face execution by the powerful Silver Wizard, Kyle knows the time has come. He must tame the savage, sexual beast inside him before he can claim the woman he’s vowed to protect from all harm.

But a greater threat emerges when Kyle and Arianna find three missing Lupine children stolen by humans. Vowing to protect the children with their lives, they must band together to fight a growing evil that threatens the entire Lupine population, an evil that will reignite Arianna’s old terrors.


3.5 Stars ~ The Mating Hunt (Werewolves of Montana #2) 
by Bonnie Vanak 

I got this book as part of the Dark and Dangerous, Six-in-One Hot Paranormal Romances Boxed Set.

The Mating Hunt 
is book two in Werewolves of Montana series by Bonnie Vanak. With this being book two I did not have any trouble picking up on the world or charactors. The sexual tension between Kyle and Arianna was well done. I liked how Kyle took his time and helped her over come her past trauma. 

Arianna has a phobia of sex. As a werewolf it is in their nature to be sexual as well as for them to come into heat. They need sex to alleviate the tension during that time of year. 

Kyle also has a difficult past with him being a hybrid (wolf and satyar). He has been a drifter for most his life. Keeping his hybrid status a secret. 

Both have difficult past to over come before they can come together. 

I like to read series books in order, but this book can be read as a stand a lone. The Mating Hunt was a good read. It did not prompt me to want and read the rest of the series, but I did enjoy the story line and sexual tension between the leads. We get lots of sexual tension, hot sex later on, a bad wizard, wolf sex as well as satyar and a couple who must both over come their past traumas and hurts to be together.
