When the pack boundary is breached by a lone wolf, Hunter doesn't know what to think. But Nick is a surprise in more ways than one.

ASHER'S MATE
Asher feels just fine on his own. But when Morgan seeks him out on behalf of his former pack, he's tempted by more than the request for help...

But Omar already has his eye on someone...









Review

Mate Series 1-12 is a collection of short MM and Paranormal stories by author Dawn Wilder. Most are too short to do a review of them all separately so I am going to pick out a couple that stood out for me so I don't spoil this amazing series of shorts for you.
First one I loved was Hunter and Nick. Hunter is an Alpha Nick has always though Hunter was hot. Nick cares for and takes care of everyone, he always comes last in his world. But not he finds himself Alpha to a rouge pack of wolves. He petitions Hunter's pack for acceptance. He knows he needs Hunter's strength and power if his rouge band is to survive. What they get is more than either of them ever expected.
This short has an amazing start to a story I feel could be much longer. There is enough in this teaser to really run with a full length story one day. I hope the author decides to do that. I really feel so much potential. Hunter is strong and a fair Alpha. He knows what he wants and goes to get it. Nick is a diplomatic Alpha who would make Hunter one heck of a beta to his pack. Together these two are unstoppable. There is plenty of heat and love in this story. Bring on more!
My next pick would be Rhett and Gunner. Gunner has always wanted the shy allusive Rhett. Once he gets him he never intends to let him go.
Rhett is an engineer. He telecommutes three days a week. His mother cannot accept him being gay nor most of his pack.
Gunner wants to defend and protect him any way he can.
I found the writing in this one to be choppy at first. But once it got going really is a good one. Again this is a short blip in the lives of these two. Lots of heat and great potential for more.
Over all I would love to see what Ms. Wilder could do with a longer story. The shorts are good teasers but none are complete finished stories. I think there is a lot of potential in these shorts and lots of great sex too. I think I would look for more of Ms. Wilder's work in the future. I would love to see what she thinks of next.
