    Very enjoyable read. I loved the characters and Sam and Margare

    Very enjoyable read. I loved the characters and Sam and Margaret were absolutely fantastic. I like the mixed shifter mate deal. The story was full of romance, suspense and sadness but all came together in the end to give you hope for the next book. I really enjoy this series and definitely look forward to the next book. Highly recommend if you enjoy paranormal and shifter romances.

    I really enjoyed Saving Margaret.  The idea of a bear and a wolf

    I really enjoyed Saving Margaret.  The idea of a bear and a wolf mating??? Wow..did not see that coming, but Scott is adorable and Maggie is funny and cute.  I love how their differences are played up, pack versus nonpack shifters.  You can really sink your teeth into this story.  It is truly about family and the bonds that they have.  Everyone needs an Aunt Breena !! You have to read it to know what I mean...and you will want one too....Reading this book, I kept thinking..ooh, hope they get a book soon.  I mean you just want to know more about the characters.  If you like shifter books, romance with action...you will love this book.  Sad part....the next one is not out yet :(   But I am sure it will be worth the wait !! :)

    I'll be the first to admit that I was a little leery of reading

    I'll be the first to admit that I was a little leery of reading this one after having read and been so disappointed with the heroine in book 1, Chasing Sam. But I am so glad I set that aside and read this anyway. Although there are minor appearances of characters form book 1, Saving Margaret is a book onto itself. I wouldn't even have known it was the second in a series. 




    Margaret exudes everything that it means to be an Alpha's only child. She is strong and independent, yet maintains a soft quality that makes it so obvious why Scott is enamored from the moment he lays eyes on her. Scott is the very definition of a big teddy bear, no pun intended. This bear shifter is both tender and fierce when the occasion calls for it. Their courting had me both sighing and laughing. 




    With a unique world building ability, Ms. Shannan made Vegas shifter politics and a shifter world heartpoundingly real. You know you've got a great story when you find yourself still up at 2am trying to convince yourself, unsuccessfully I may add, that you're really only just going to finish this one chapter then you'll go to bed. Did I mention I was unsuccessful at convincing myself? 




    Saving Margaret has definitely redeemed the Vegas Mates series for me and I can't wait to see what happens next.

    A lot of novellas are lacking something because of length, but this is not one of them. In the shifter world, Margaret and Scott find out they are true mates even though they are different species. Also there is war brewing between the old royal line versus North American shifters. This story continues a thread from the first story Chasing Sam and makes for exciting reading. The book is fun and sexy between the H/h with him being a loner type and she from a large extended pack. But there is also a darker, exciting story as the American shifters find themselves in danger. This is a great read and I want to read the next story...now!

    In the spirit of full disclosure I received an ARC in exchange

    In the spirit of full disclosure I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Krystal has once again blended magic and shape shifters, with modern-day activities and romance. Margaret is a Were-wolf and an interesting character, well fleshed out and keeps the readers on their toes. Scott is a Were-bear, and a fabulous hero. Strong, sexy, charming in his gruff way. He’s Chase’s {the hero from book one} best friend and they were in the military together too.

    I would have liked to see Chase and Scott interact a bit, but Chase and his mate Samantha were off on their own adventure. All in all it’s obvious from book two that MRS. Shannan has a lot of fun twists in store for us throughout the series.

    My only complaint is the whole Maggie/Margaret aspect is confusing since Maggie is a common nickname for Margaret and in this series they are two different characters. The ending is a bit sad, but the future of the series is promising.

    Great Paranormal Read!!!!! This is the second book in the Vegas Mates series and in my opinion the best so far!! I fell in love with the hot, sexy, alpha Scott and the beautiful, strong, funny Margaret and I am trying to wait patiently for the next book. If you are looking for a great paranormal series full of suspense, drama, humor and hot sexy alpha males this is definitely the series for you. I guarantee you will not be disappointed. Well done Mrs. Shannan. I look forward to reading more of your work in the future.

    Super hot & action packed!!!!I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Since I read Chasing Sam (book #1 in the series) I was more than happy to except this book. I was looking forward to Saving Margaret and I was not disappointed. The Vegas Mates series has become one of my favorite series. Krystal Shannan's descriptive writing and amazing story line make you feel like you are in the book. And let's talk about the hot love scenes. SUPER HOT!!!!
    Scott is a hot bear-shifter who falls in love with Margaret who is a wolf-shifter. Though their species are not supposed to co-mingle, their bodies are pulled together by a force neither can control. They are mates and no matter how much Margaret tries to avoid it, her wolf needs Scott. Scott is the ultimate alpha male. Tall, strong, gorgeous, and protective of his mate. And let's not forget sex personified. On their journey together they will suffer pain and find love they never knew existed. And will join forces in a battle that could bring down their species existence.
    In this second installment the story continues right from the end of book one and will leave you begging for more after you finish. I am looking forward to book three and anything else Krystal has to offer.

    The second book in the Vegas Mates series is an intriguing and entertaining read that will have the reader craving more.
    The instant attraction of the hero and heroine, Scott and Margaret, is super hot and only gets hotter throughout the story.  While Margaret has a few misgivings about this mating, Scott has none whatsoever and he’s ready to move forward.  The sex between the two is so hot it explodes off the pages burning the reader up.
    The story takes up where the first book left off and while the author gives the reader enough information to catch up, you don’t want to miss the first one.  The Vegas shifters have a very powerful enemy, one that will not hesitate to destroy them if they don’t fall in line.  The action leaps off the pages and grabs the reader’s attention as Scott tries to protect Margaret from the Council.
    The suspense builds throughout the story as the Vegas shifters prepare for war and on top of that they have another enemy that wants to destroy them all.
    The author has created a supernatural world that is very engaging with suspense, action, romance, hot and steamy sex, and bewitching characters that the draw the reader in and keep their complete attention until the very end.  I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I am looking forward to reading future books in the series.

    This is a good story. A real page turner! I couldn't put it down till I finished it. Book two is more intense than book one and I suspect book three will continue the same way.

    - 3.5 Saving Margaret Stars -


    Saving Margaret is book two in the Vegas Mates series by Krystal Shannan. It has been quiet sometime since I read book one Chasing Sam, so I have to admit I was a little lost at the beginning, but once I got more into the story things came back and I enjoyed reading Saving Margaret.


    Margaret, wolf shifter and only daughter of an alpha. She comes across self-sufficient and independent, with a softer side that we can appreciate. I liked Margaret. She has some of the same fears most women do when falling for a man.


    Scott, bear shifter and army buddy of Chase. Scott comes across as a gentle giant, protective, and dominate all rolled together in a sweet teddy bear package. I liked Scott and I love bear shifters they are just so interesting to read about.


    Once I got over the hump of the first few pages I feel back into the world that Krystal Shannan created with her Vegas Mates. Their was no shortage of action with the Council coming into town and stirring things up as well as a stocker going after Margaret. The author has created an intriguing society that the shifters operate in and the shifters themselves are interesting characters, in that the animal spirit feels like a separate entity inside them and the human part can communicate with the animal spirit. It’s interesting to read the conversations they have with themselves. The mate bond is an insta-know thing and the author does a great job explaining this and how the shifters know who is their mate. The only thing that got to me is what happens to the men that show up to capture Renata Demakis. I don’t want to say anymore only that most are trained in the army plus they are shifters, so they should have known better. You will just have to read to find out what I’m talking about.


    If you have not tried the Vegas Mates series yet, I recommend you give it a try. Book one Chasing Sam is usually up for free. I’m curios to see how everything pans out and plan to continue with this series.

    Margaret Taylor, a wolf shifter, is a VIP Hostess Manager at the Mirage Casino & Hotel. She meets Scott O'Hearn, a bear shifter and ex Army friend of Chase Michaels (from Book 1 Chasing Sam) at Chase and Samantha's wedding reception. The moment they see each other, they recognize that they are each others mates. There's trouble brewing because Samantha's pack and others are defecting from the Council which is forbidden. The Council sends agents after the defectors to teach them a lesson and bring the packs under their control again. Margaret is kidnapped and her pack is furious.

    You'll have to read the story for yourself to find out what the outcome is. There is lots of steamy sex, action, mayhem and a whole array of unique supernatural characters. I love the interactions between them all. The book grabs you right in from the beginning to the end. I so highly recommend this book and it's a terrific continuation of Book 1 - Chasing Sam. This one explains things from the first book but you can read this alone.

    Saving Margaret by Krystal Shannan really took me by surprise.  This is the second book in the Vegas Mates Series, but it shakes everything up.  It is full of love, joy, and immeasurable tragedy. It definitely sets the stage for some very interesting possibilities.  I very much enjoyed this segment and am looking forward to what will come next.

    I enjoyed Margaret and her responses to finding out that Scott, a grizzly bear shifter is her mate. The moments between these two were hilarious at times.




    The continued sub plot from the first book gave this book a bit of continuity in the series. For that reason I would recommend reading the first book first. The first book is just as good and I definitely love everything there is about the Vegas Mates series.




    Ms. Shannan writes a story that is hot, sexy and funny and highly recommended.

    BEARS!!!! I adore Bear shifters and Krystal Shannan doesn't let me down with this heartwarming entertaining novel!

    This was absolutely perfect. The characters are perfect. The story line is perfect. No whiny female getting on my nerves to the point where I wanted to stop reading midway through. All of the characters, whether they are main or secondary, are strong. There's the bad guy who was perfect. I didn't get bogged down with a bunch of b.s. page filling details that were not necessary to the story. Everything played out exactly as it should.

    All in all, this is a fun, sassy story about two people falling in love, neither of whom think they deserve it. They make new friends, establish a home for themselves, and live seriously happily ever after- was there any doubt they wouldn't? I seriously cannot say enough good things about this book. Buy it, people, seriously!

    I loved how the big, sweet but Dominant bear shifter goes after what he wants! Sparks fly between Scott and Margaret and no way is he letting her run away! There is danger and some will not survive but this book is a definite must read! I love all the characters and how everyone sticks by one another even though they are not all the same species!
