Mission: Don’t fall in love

After an explosive night of passion during a scenting ceremony, Karla Alves is sure she was just a one night stand for the man she'd been crushing on for years. She teased him and pleased him, and Nate hasn't been around since. Her fear of becoming clingy kept her from risking her heart and asking for more than a few hours of skin sin.

Mission: Crack her walls

She. Is. His. Nathan Wolfe marked Karla. His mate. Deeply involved in pack politics, Nate has had to stay away. When his sister warns that Karla needs him more than he thinks, he'll discover a bundle of secrets only his wolf can sniff out. But getting the woman he cares about to let down her guard may prove to be his undoing.

Mission: Embrace the bite

With Karla's wayward sister wreaking havoc and friends needing more of his time than ever, Nate will have to rearrange his priorities if he ever hopes to earn Karla's trust. But will time with her be enough? Only true love and a wolf's promise can hold together a relationship created with a bite, a scenting, and a hope for tomorrow.


Milly Taiden is at it again with her SEXY shifters! The Wolfe men are to die for. They are gorgeous, strong, and protective. Milly is a go to author for me when it comes to the paranormal. Not only does she spin a great story, but the sex scenes are fantastic and steamy. Intense scenes right off the bat! Now, that’s how your start a freaking story! She has a way of bringing her characters to life and transporting you to a world full of passion, possibilities, and drama. So when this author writes, I read. That’s all there is to it.

“I like knowing you have that wild side sitting there, wanting to play with me.”

Karla Alves is a human who has not had the best guidance growing up. Her mother had a habit of gifting men with money in order to keep them with her. This is not what you want your children to witness when they are growing up. With a mother like that and a father that wanted nothing to do with them, who can blame a girl for being terrified of any kind of emotional connection. Even though she knows that her mother was crazy and she is trying not to make those same mistakes, it has to be hard to erase that kind of mindset. When you have a Wolfe as your mate, you better squash that shit right away, because they are always ALL IN, no matter what.

“I love being with you. In you. And you have to understand that it’s never going to change.”

Nathan Wolfe always had feelings for Karla, ever since they met seven years ago. He has always tried to be there for her, and when they shared that one kiss long ago, he was done for. Nathan just had to wait for the right time to mark her and make her HIS. After realizing how Karla grew up and what her mother was like, he was determined to make her talk, make her open up and talk to him. It’s difficult to do that because of pack business with the rogues. He wants to hunt down the bastards who continue to hurt his family, but he doesn’t want to leave Karla and make her think he is abandoning her.

“It’s one of the words I think of when I think of you. Sassy, sexy, and beautiful. You’re all of the above.”

There is so much to love about this book. I could not contain my giggles every time Karla called Nathan, “Spot.” It is so endearing and cute. Jordan is back and feisty as ever. It was nice to catch up from past characters and to meet new ones, who I hope, in the future, get their very own story. It’s not just the shifters that are feisty and protective. The humans that they call family are just as tough and vigilant. The Sassy Mates series is a series I highly recommend for the paranormal romance lover in you. A Mate’s Bite was a sexy, exciting, page turner, and I can’t wait to see who gets their very own story next.

About Milly Taiden

Hi! I’m Milly Taiden (AKA April Angel). I love to write sexy stories. They’re usually either paranormal or contemporary with a large dose of heat. My paranormal stories can be anything from wolf-shifters (my favorites) to witches, demons and anything in between. My contemporaries are usually anything from soldiers to corporate romances.
I was born the prettiest part of the Caribbean known as the Dominican Republic. Currently, I live in New York City with my hubby, the bossy kiddo and our little dog “Needy Speedy”. Don’t ask.
When I’m not working some really long hours at the day job, or hanging out in the awful life-sucking invention known as Facebook, messaging my bestie in the UK or shopping with my sis Julie, then I can be found watching scary movies. But when I’m not doing that, I’m usually writing because the voices won’t shut up.
I am addicted to shoe shopping, chocolate (but who isn’t, right?) and Dunkin’ Donuts coffee.
Come on over and visit me! I love to meet new readers!
I hope you enjoyed this book. If you did, please consider writing a review.
