Review:Protecting Their Mate (part 1) by Moira Rogers

Protecting Their Mate (Part One)
The Last Pack
Blake is on a mission from his alpha–to track down a werewolf whose parents dragged her into the human world years ago, one who may be in danger. He expects the lead to go nowhere, given how few wolves live among humans, but he discovers something rare indeed, caged in a basement: a beautiful, curvy woman gripped by the fever, ready to mate.

Ashley Todd has never fit in. She’s always been too much–too big, too demanding, too aware of the wolf hiding beneath her skin. She’s been locked away for months—been alone for a lifetime—and in walks Blake to save her from her prison. Her rescuer is hard, intense—a dominant wolf whose bossy attitude makes her growl…and yearn to submit.

Soothing Ashley’s mating fever is Blake’s responsibility–and his pleasure. Their passion is explosive, undeniable. But what started out as a job for Blake quickly becomes something more, and the toughest part of his mission looms: taking Ashley back to his pack so she can choose her permanent mate from amongst his brethren.

Ashley is drawn to dominant Blake, but meeting the rest of the pack reignites her desire. She is overwhelmed by her new life and all it entails, but embracing her inner wolf means embracing the truth: if she doesn’t explore her attraction to the other members of the pack, she’ll never find her forever mate.

Protecting Their Mate was originally published as an eight part serial under the penname Mia Thorne. It has been repackaged, but the story remains the same.

What I thought about Protecting Their Mate (part 1)
Ashley has been in the dark about her true nature, and when her father locks her in the basement to keep her away from  others while she's in heat,  she wonders if she's been abandoned.  It isn't until Blake tries to set her free that she finds out that she's really a wolf.

Blake is the second in command in their small pack, and he's been sent by the alpha to find Ashley and bring her back.  What he didn't count on was having to service Ashley during her time of need.  She's in bad shape, craving sexual contact in the worse way and Blake has to get permission to take care of her, which he does quite well in a very hot and steamy scene.

When a few others from Blake's pack arrives, they also get to help Ashley, with Blake's approval.  Ashley must choose from the pack who she wants for her mate, and Blake isn't sure that he will be the one, especially when Ashley meets Lucas, the pack alpha.

This was a steamy, quick read that had me wanting part 2 right now!  Ashley really has only one thing on her mind, so I'm eager to see what she will be like when her heat is over and she has to choose one of the pack to be her mate.  

Overall, a very nice start to this shifter story. There really isn't anything unexpected in this story, but that didn't bother me as I got caught up in the story very quickly.  Can't wait for more!
