Overview

She ran from him once...

Wild one night stands are not Ella Hayes's style, but with her confidence at rock bottom after a devastating betrayal and her painful departure from her jaguar pride, who could blame her for falling into bed with a sexy wolf? She never thought she'd see him again. And never in her craziest dreams did she expect to come face-to-face with him on her first day with the Kincaid wolf pack. Sleeping with Asher had been one of the most intense experiences of her life--but now she wonders if they could have more.

He's not letting her go again...

Tired of life as a lone wolf, shifter Asher has joined his cousin's pack. The last person he expected to see was the sexy woman who ran out on him in the middle of the most incredible night of his life. The Ella he meets now is nothing like the wild, sensual woman he let his guard down with, but he likes both sides of the complicated female. But now somebody--or something--sinister is targeting Ella, and Asher moves quickly to get her under his roof and under his protection. Keeping the sexy female safe and proving they belong together are two missions he doesn't plan to fail. Because this time, he's playing for keeps.

Tempting His Mate was another fun, fast paced and sexy read penned by Savannah Stuart aka Katie Reus. Although this is the third in the Cresent Moon series, it can very well be a stand alone. This story moved along quickly without dragging which I appreciated; the story was filled with plenty of sexual tension between Ella and Asher. I enjoyed the progression of their relationship. Bits of suspense were thrown in and there was light drama. Everything resolved easily in the end and of course the H/h got their happy ever after which is always a good thing. Overall, Tempting His Mate was a nice and quick paranormal romance. If you enjoy Katie Reus’ books, then you’re guaranteed to love Savannah Stuart as well. *I received an eARC in exchange for an honest review.

Tempting His Mate is a HOT and thrilling shifter romance by Savannah Stuart (aka Katie Reus) Tempting His Mate is the third book in the Crescent Moon paranormal romance series by Katie Reus, writing as Savannah Stuart. I hadn't read this series, so was delighted for the excuse to do so when the publisher shared a copy of Tempting His Mate with me for review. Let me say this is one HOT werewolf / shifter romance series that I think you'll enjoy. Each book in the series - Taming the Alpha (book 1), Claiming His Mate (book 2), and Tempting His Mate (book 3) - is novella length (under 90 pages), so the series as a whole is a fairly quick read. But that's not to say that you won't be engrossed for several hours in this world of southern werewolves that Stuart (i.e. Reus) has created. It's a very, very sexy series and Tempting His Mate is no exception. Ella, a jaguar shifter cousin to Lauren from book two, is on her way to her cousin's new wolf pack to take over accounting duties for the alpha. She's running from her jaguar pride as her ex- mated and married her younger sister. Totally out of character at a seedy shifter bar she hooks up with and has a one night were-stand with the very sexy and lone wolf shifter, Asher. In this were-world cross-species matings don't really occur (with Lauren and Max an obvious exception), so Ella puts the hot and steamy encounter out of her mind and continues to Gulf Shores, Alabama to start her new life. Of course one of the first shifters she encounters is Max's cousin, Asher. (Yes, that Asher.) Who has taken the job of head of security at the same hotel where she'll be in charge of finances. They both try to back pedal on their attraction, but you know there's something there. In addition to the hot, steamy romance, Stuart adds in mysterious break-ins and threats to Ella that weave throughout the story. Each of these three books in the series are serious page-turners and definitely hold the reader's interest. Whether Reus is writing as Savannah Stuart or under her own name, she's definitely an author to keep on your bookshelf. So I definitely recommend both Tempting His Mate (which can be read as a stand-alone, but it won't be as much fun) as well as the entire Crescent Moon series. If you enjoy HOT shifter romances with a strong undercurrent of suspense, you'll LOVE this series too. I received an eARC from the publisher through NetGalley for use in this review.

The third in Stuart's shifter romance series, "Tempting His Mate" is the least involved and developed of the three. Asher was an interesting character with a complicated background, but Ella was a bit of a cipher. A bit more foreshadowing as to the source of the threat against Ella would have strengthened that part of the story. Overall, lightweight, but entertaining. -- lyradora

Great book! I love books about lovers reunited. The fact that it also included a hot shifter made it an A+ in my book. Can't wait for what's next.

(ARC provided by publisher through NetGalley for a fair and honest review. ) This was the best of the three novellas in this series yet.  I love Asher.  He is frickin’ hot.  Asher has finally come home after wandering as a lone wolf.  He doesn’t expect to meet the hot little jaguar that ran out on him working for his pack as an accountant.  Ella needs a new start so when her friend Lauren (from Claiming His Mate (Crescent Moon #2) ) tells her about a job with the Kincaid pack she jumps at the chance.  She doesn’t expect to run into Asher, ever.  She doesn’t do one night stands and getting together with him was an anomaly except now she wants to turn that one night stand into a lifetime.  Smoking hot sweet and fun quick read.

Ella is a jaguar shifter, she is restless where she is and after her ex and younger sister announce they have mated she doesn't want to be pitied so she decided to leave and move closer to her cousin and join her pack. On the way to her cousin's she stops in at a popular shifter bar for one wild night. She ends u with Asher a sexy wolf shifter. They have a wild, sexy night together and Ella takes off after expecting to never see him again. Fate has other plans though and when she meets the new pack she is joining she runs into Asher, whose cousin is the packs leader. Asher knows Ella is his mate but Ella makes him work for their HEA. This story features a sexy wolf, a headstrong jaguar, a little suspense,humor, a renegade vampire and lots of steamy romance. It has everything I love in a story. My only complaint is that it was to short. I wanted a lot more and hope to see the couple in future books. This series is definitely on my auto buy list.

Tempting His Mate is book 3 in the Crescent Moon series by Savannah Stuart (aka. Katie Reus) and is right up my alley. I like this premise. Buttoned-up girl meets bad boy shifter. Yes, it's a familiar story, but this one is done well. I'm a sucker for a straight-laced girls letting go - the more tightly wound, the better: "She preferred to keep her world neat, tidy and ordered." I like Ella. She is grounded, competent, and even in the midst of being unwound, she knows her mind. She makes her wants and needs known to Asher: "...if you want me again, you're going to have to work for it." You go, girl! Thank you for not be a puddle of goo around this undoubtedly primal, alpha male. There is also a minor mystery. It's actually not much to speak of except as a device to draw Ella and Asher together. The real story is about these two shifters and the heat level is scorching. IN A NUTSHELL: I know we are heading into Fall, but you may want to keep your fans out for this one. It is definitely a hot read.

I was absolutely intrigued from the first page of Tempting His Mate! It had the perfect amount of suspense, romance, action, and humor. I loved the interaction, and of course of the chemistry, between these two characters! Ella Hayes's is leaving her tribe due to a family conflict and runs into Asher Kincaid. They share one night together and Ella thinks she'll never have to see him again…boy was she is for a surprise!!! Once Ella is back in Asher's life, he plans on winning her heart and isn't going to let her go! Then comes the suspense, drama, and action! I definitely recommend this book!! Great paranormal romance :] *I received this book as an ARC from the author for my honest review.

Review: I must have a six sense about reading series in the wrong order...lol I seem to do it every other book. Oh well, enough of me and my issues :0 This was a quick, entertaining read, that kept me engrossed until the end. After a sexy one night stand with a wolf shifter (Asher), Ella, a jaguar shifter sneaks out on him and goes to live with her cousin. Of course Asher has moved to this same pack and meet again. You can feel their attraction even though Ella is leery about getting into a relationship with the sexy lone wolf. But attraction cannot be denied and they soon find themselves falling for each, but someone has targeted Ella and Asher must protect her and convince her his lone wolf days are over. This was a quick action packed, sexy read that was well worth reading! 4 stars
