Blurb: Bethany Johnson grew up one of the only humans in a pack of werewolves. She didn’t have an easy time and her self-confidence was almost non-existent. Finally, after some serious psychotherapy and the help of weight-loss surgery, she is feeling like the Bethany she has always wanted to be. But now she has to say goodbye to the werewolves in her life. Out with the old and in with the new this year…
Luke Denarius is the new Alpha of the Delta pack. He’s never met Bethany but the second he scents her he knows she is his. No way is she going off to Italy for adventure and hot sex with other men.
With the help of Madame Eve these two will find that a mating is in the works for Christmas.
Kitten's Review: What can I really say about this story anymore than I loved it! I felt that maybe some of the dialogue might have been silly on the part of the lead male. But I was always so wrapped up into to world building and character development that it was jarring for a moment before I was smiling or wanting to tear up at the sincerity of the lead character. I truly believe that ever good Alpha male has to have a deep sense of compassion to truly be a great Alpha. And Luke is that Alpha male for me. I could feel every inch of Bethany’s pain. For me this wasn’t just a story of a human girl feeling out casted by the fact her whole family was wolves. This was a story about just feeling like the underdog in general. I could relate to the heroine in this story so much that even though this was a novella, I grew to love and want more of these characters. It was a brilliant Christmas read that perfectly broke up the different genres that I read. I would highly recommend this quick paranormal romance to anyone that reads paranormal romance.
It had a great story flow. It has a strong lead female that yes, accepted her ‘mate’ rather quickly. But I truly believe that people need to see past that when reading a novella. The authors have an enormous task in creating a full love story in a small amount of words. Rebecca Royce has done that with I’ll Be Mated for Christmas. After reading this story I instantly looked up more of Rebecca’s books to buy once I get my Amazon gift cards for Christmas! Fantastic job!
