An action packed paranormal boxset

Fated to be Mated (Paranormal Shifter Romance Multi-Author Boxed set - 6) - Kenzie Cox, Elsa Jade, SM Reine, Moira Rogers, Emma Storm, V Vaughn

I was gifted an ARC of the "Fated to be Mated" boxset, from V. Vaughn, in exchange for an honest reveiw.

I have previously read 4 of the stories within, so my reviews are added for those, now to jump into the couple of new authors/stories.... eeeeeekkkkk.

Jace (Wolves of the Rising Sun, book 1) by Kenxie Cox....
I have just finished reading Jace's story, I was quickly drawn into the story & was surprised when I'd already finished it.
Skye finds comfort in the Bayou, especially around Jace, having just broken up with her boyfriend she wants to take pictures & relax. But when a storm breaks & Skye finds herself in a cabin with him....
I loved how things progressed between Jace & Skye, it made for an enjoyable short read.... why do these stories have to be so short??

Brindle (Winter Valley Wolves, book 1) by V. Vaughn....
I have just come up for air after reading Brindle's story, so much information going through my head, for such a short read.
Katie is in heat, after running away from her mate Brindle, not long after she was changed, having to get used to being a wolf & then all her confusion. Nothing can satiate Katie when she's in heat, but Brindle makes a surprise visit, knowing his mate is in pain, but also not knowing if he'll be rejected again.....
I really felt for Katie & Brindle's situation, obviously she needs time to come to terms at being a werewolf, but Brindle is nothing but patient... well until near the end.

Wilder's Mate (Bloodhounds, book 1) by Moira Rogers....
I'd NEVER read a book by Moira Rogers before, but something about this books blurb had me intrigued. A chapter in & I wanted to read more, half way through... well I was HOOKED!! I couldn't put it down & quickly found myself at the end. Everything flowed through the storyline, a kidnapping, a heroine on a mission, her bodyguard, shifters, vamps, a trip across country.... EVERYTHING I want in a book. Then add the slight steampunk genre, I was enthralled.

Hero (Wolves of Angels Rest, book 1) by Elsa Jade....
I loved this book, I was quickly thrust into the story & it was over before I knew what happened. Man I love that in a book, even in a quick read like 'Hero'.
Kane is coming home from the war afer escaping small town life. Maddison felt a pull to returning to where it all began. A chance meeting on Kane's first night home & so many secrets to keep from Maddie, keeping her safe from himself & others.... but when the Mating Moon rises the war between want & need stop....

Caged Wolf (The Tarot Witches, book 1) by SM Reine....
When a book combines some of your favourite things, shifters, vamps, witches, tarot cards, as well as bikers, add in a sassy leading lady you know your in for a ride. 'Caged Wolf' was that ride! Book 1 in S.M. Reine's "The Tarot Witches" series, it had me wanting to keep reading...
Ofelia has had a traumatic past, please be patient when finding out just how she receives her scars, it takes a while for her to open up, but once she does??? You may wish she didn't tell. The minute Trouble & his brothers walk into her bar in Lobo Norte, she's instantly drawn & doesn't know why.
It did take a little to piece together all the snippets of information I received whilst reading, but when you put it all together... WOW.... I need to read the next book in this series.


Temptation (Grey Wolves Rising, book 1) by Emma Storm....
I finished reading Temptation, Gabriel's story... this man had it easy, I'm not completely sure why he waitied so long??
Gabriel has known his true mate for 6 years, but she was too young & he wanted her to be the best that she could be. That meant Joy went away to college, away from Gabriel & her family...
I could understand Gabriel's hesitation for not taking Joy as his mate 6 years prior, but I really felt for Joy... Gabriel not accepting the connection between them & making Joy feel like there was nothing there between them...
