Previously published in the anthology Hunger, the paranormal queen of steam and sass pulls out all the stops in The Alpha's Mate, a sexy, funny short story from New York Times bestselling author Eve Langlais.
Villains aren’t supposed to rescue damsels, and pack alphas are known to have complete control of their wolf. But when Fabian saves a certain lady from drowning, everything he knows gets tossed away and only one thing becomes clear: she’s his mate—and someone wants to kill her. Protecting her, though, is only part of his problem. He also has to convince her she belongs to him. In her words, “Hell no.”
When she flees, little does she realize this wolf loves to chase. And when he catches the woman he wants? She’ll become the Alpha’s Mate.
Fabian isn't use to rescuing damsels in distress. But Vivienne more than she appears. If only she could remember what she is.
I really enjoyed Alpha's Mate by Eve Langlais. This is third in her Fabian Garoux series. I haven’t read the other stories in this series but found that not to be an issue.
Fabian is the baddest wolf around. Saving folks isn't usually how he rolls. But when trouble finds itself on his land his role changes. Especially since trouble brings along his mate. I love seeing Vivienne and Fabian interact. Vivienne may not remember much but I love that Ms. Langlais did not allow Vivienne to be seen as a victim. Vivienne found herself a bit lost but she refused to let that define her. I love Vivienne and Fabian together. The chemistry felt believable and real. The dialogue was snappy. And Ms. Langlais' trademark snarkiness was abundant. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Fabian and Vivienne find their way and look forward to reading more from Ms. Langlais in the future.
