About the Author

Savannah Stuart is the pseudonym of New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katie Reus. Under this name she writes slightly hotter romance than her mainstream books. Her stories still have a touch of intrigue, suspense, or the paranormal and the one thing she always includes is a happy ending. She lives in the South with her very own real life hero. In addition to writing (and reading of course!) she loves traveling with her husband.

Saving His Mate (A vampire-werewolf romance) 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 34 reviews.

3.5 stars This is a pleasant little ditty. I enjoy inter-species love stories and this is a cute one between an 250 year old vampire, Rex and senior shifter, Margery. Margery is the mother hen of the pack and the owner of the shifter-owned bakery. She has a past that makes her extremely wary of vampires. This is a classic story of both love at first sight and the reluctant girlfriend. With shifters and their mating reactions, this is not a contradiction. However, it is a hot number. It's great to revisit our favorite shifter pack and am glad to see this hot vampire join the team. Read in one sitting, I couldn't put this book down.  Thank you to the author for the opportunity to read this book in exchange of an honest review.

Saving his mate is the fourth book in the Crescent Moon Series. This book tells the story of Rex and Margery. Rex, a vampire, is a bounty hunter. He's current case leads him to Kincaid pack territory. Grant, the alpha, allows Rex to hunt on his territory and not only that but he also gives him the choice of becoming a member of the pack. Rex never felt that he belonged with the vampires but after meeting Margery, his decision is made. Meet Margery. She's a member of the Kincaid pack and she knows better than to get involed with a vampire. After nearly been killed by rogue vamps she's determined to resist Rex. But can she really?? After Margery is taken by the people Rex hunts, he’ll do whatever it takes to protect her... Once again, Savannah Stuart (aka Katie Reus) brings us an incredible book filled with action, romance, suspense and an alpha hero. I loved sooo much this couple and despite the obstacles they met they managed to overcome them and find happiness! I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series. Highly recommended!

From the moment vampire bounty-hunter Rex Serano meets sexy shifter Margery, he’s smitten. When the alpha of the Kincaid pack asks him to join with them, he’s stunned by the offer, but the real draw is the beautiful, caring female who seems to want nothing to do with him. Margery is the driving maternal force for her pack and she has one rule: she doesn’t date vampires. Years ago she was nearly killed by rogue vamps and she has no interest in getting involved with one now. No matter how sexy a certain, persistent bounty hunter might be. When one of Rex’s hunts gets messy, Margery gets caught in the crossfire and he’ll do whatever it takes to protect her. They might be different species but the mating call is undeniable and too strong to ignore. Now they must find a way to reach common ground and trust their instincts if they’re going to fight for a future together. Review: Another great story in Crescent Moon series! This quick read was full of characters, action and romance. In this installment we see sexy, alpha-male, vampire Rex get his mate, who happens to be Margery.  Margery is great, a strong female character, that even when she gets kidnapped, she tries to get herself out and not wait to be rescued.   The story kept me engaged until the very end. Rex has been offered a place in Grant's pack and is thinking about he meets Margery and wham-bam, thank you mam, he is hooked.  Margery takes a little longer, but that is because of a bad past experience with vampires.  Rex is not going to let her get away and pursues her, unfortunately that draws unwanted attention to Margery and she is kidnapped.  I do not want to give too much of the story away, but there is a lot of action, romance and sexiness in the second half of the story. I cannot wait to see what happens next in the series! 3.5 Stars

Quick, light, and enjoyable read. Margery is strong and confident. Loved it that Rex helps Margery save herself and not just saves her. Great addition to the series.

I don't normally like to read a book in the middle of a series. I have been eyeballing some books by Katie Reus for a while now, but haven't heard enough about her writing to commit me to them.  When I saw this book on Netgalley, I thought it would be a great opportunity to read something to give me a taste of her writing style. I love shifter/vampire romances and the fact that the many female protagonist doesn't want to have anything to do with the male is an added bonus.  I didn't realize that this was book 4 in the series until after I was done and went looking for the others to get some back story. I was actually surprised at how little spoilers there were for the other stories other than the fact that the couples got together, which this being a romance is kind of a 'duh'. I did get the other 3 books and read them and am completely hooked now.   This is the story of Rex Serano, vampire bounty-hunter and Margery, baker and pack maternal. We are introduced to Rex as he is sitting in Grant's office, the local pack Alpha, getting permission to hunt down a rogue vampire in Grant's territory. The young vampire had stolen some money from his master and fled. Rex has been tasked with retrieving him and the money. While sitting in the office, Margery arrives, dropping of the alpha's slightly inebriated mate off, after a girl's night out. When Margery gets ready to leave and take the other member of their trio back to the apartment complex compound, Rex states he will escort them back, shocking himself. Over Margery's objections, Grant agrees. Rex has a history with Grant and while in the office, Grant advises Rex that he is welcome to join the pack and put down some roots.  Rex hadn't been seriously considering this until he gets one good whiff of Margery and realizes that she smells like home.  Finding his mate after over 200 years, is a bit of a shock to him. Margery wants nothing to do with Rex.  When she was much younger, she had been attacked by some rogue vampires and has been very leary of all of them since.  Watching the dance between Rex and Margery was a sweet and thrilling ride. It would have worked as a stand alone, but I was interested in the other couples stories enough to read the other books in the series. You can read these books in any order or just pick one that interests you from the series. This was a 4 star read.

This was such a lifesaver for me! I've been laid up in bed sick and I was able to literally read this book and escape my cold! It was mysterious, interesting, suspenseful, and humorous all at the same time! I definitely recommend Saving His Mate to all the paranormal romance lovers out there! Heck, I recommend all of Katie Reus's books in general :) The chemistry between Rex and Margery was phenomenal in this quick read!

This series seems to keep getting better!  The author has a talent for writing great chemistry with Alpha males and strong (often stubborn) females.  I have yet to be disappointed.  I really enjoyed Red and Margery's story and can't wait to read what comes next from this author!  I highly recommend any title by Savannah Stuart (also publishes under Katie Reus).

A fabulous read. I loved Rex and Margery! This was a quick and fun read that had a lot of action packed into a short story. Rex was a great character who helped carry the story, it's obvious he was ready and willing to settle down, and Margery gave him the perfect place to come home to.  Together Rex and Margery are very sexy and meant for each other.  *I received a copy in exchange for my honest review.

The 4th installment in the Crescent Moon Series, Saving His Mate, is a fast paced, exciting, sexy, and quick read. Rex, vampire bounty hunter, while hunting in Grants territory he meets Margery, a pack member in the Kincaid pack. He is speechless when he sees her, when he feels the pull. Something he has yet to feel with another. Margery, more of a maternal pack member, not looking for a relationship, and most especially not with a vampire. Having been nearly killed by rogue vampires years earlier, she wants nothing to do with any. The fact that Rex is drop dead sexy, and lights her on fire just by being near him means nothing. right? These two are pushed together quick, and the sparks fly. Margery tries to deny the feelings Rex inspires in her. Rex will have to work to get Margery to trust in him, in what they both know is their destiny. I was given this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

If you love your suspense combined with a passionate romance and the paranormal, this is the book for you. Savannah Stuart (AKA Katie Reus) has written a well-plotted story that's impossible to put down. Rex, a vampire, comes to Gulf Shores hunting a rogue vampire, but when he meets Margery. She becomes his focus. Can he convince her that he cares? I love the characters, both old and new, that are part of the Kincaid Wolf pack. Their adventures are always fast-paced and filled with unexpected twists and turns. This story is a no exception. They are compelling and the story is highly intriguing. The romance between Rex and Margery is both passionate and protective. No one does this genre better than Savannah/Katie. I was gifted a copy from the author in exchange for an honest and unscripted review.

A few days ago I finished Saving His Mate by Savannah Stuart (aka Katie Reus). So, I have been trying to form my thoughts on the story. Since it's a novella and description does a marvelous job on describing the story. I guess I should dive into my thoughts. First off, love Rex. I mean he's kind of a loner among his kind, which makes him a great bounty hunter. I mean when you don't have an attachment to any particular coven or group makes the job a little bit easier. Anyway. I like how his first instinct is to protect Margery. Now Margery does have some mothering tendency when it comes to her pack. I like that she's attracted to Rex, even though she has a prejudice towards his kind. Which sucks for Rex. The instant attraction is pretty hot, but nothing to over the top sexapades.  All in all, I liked Saving His Mate. I enjoyed the quick read with Rex and Margery. Yes, you will find a little danger, and Rex drag the danger in. However, it was nicely resolved and enjoyable. So, if you are looking for a vampire and wolf relationship that is pretty quick, you might give Saving His Mate a try. Copy provided by author

Delightfully fast paced story filled with shifters, vampires, instant attraction, stolen money and abduction. The storyline was intriguing and great attention was paid to character development. There is sexual chemistry, trust issues and some mystery along the way. Great book, great story, great author. I enjoyed the read very much. Gifted a copy for review.

3.75 stars:  SAVING HIS MATE is the fourth instalment in Savannah Stuart’s (aka Katie Reus) adult, contemporary Crescent Moon paranormal romance novella series. This is wolf shifter Margery and vampire bounty hunter Rex Serano’s storyline. Although this is the fourth in the series, SAVING HIS MATE can be read as a stand alone without too much difficulty. While on the hunt for a rogue vampire, Rex crosses into the Kincaid Pack territory where he will meet wolf-shifter Margery. Rex knows immediately that Margery is his mate but convincing the reticent shifter is another matter. Margery has a history with the vampires and she wants nothing to do with Rex or his kind. When Rex is offered a position within the Pack he knows that his future with Margery is almost a guarantee. The relationship between Rex and Margery is quick to develop as there is only so much room in a novella series to tell a story. From friends to lovers theirs is a relationship that is beckoned by the fates. There is an immediate attraction between our couple-one not readily accepted by all of the vampires or shifters-and in this Margery will become the pawn in a bigger game. Rex is a well respected and trustworthy vampire and, Margery is the Pack ‘mother’ who ensures everyone is looked after. Savannah Stuart pulls the reader into a quick paced, romantic and sexy storyline. The secondary characters are colorful and bring a sense a familiarity to the story as the world building continues with the previous storyline characters and landscape. If you are a fan of Katie Reus than Savannah Stuart’s Crescent Moon series is sure to please. There is a little bit of everything-romance, sex, suspense and a happily ever after.

Saving His Mate is #4 in the Crescent Moon Series. I love this series! Of course, who wouldn't love hot sexy shifters? Rex is a bounty hunter. He is hunting a newborn vampire that robbed a much more powerful vampire. Rex's hunt takes him to Kincaid pack territory. While talking to the pack alpha, Grant, about hunting the vamp in his territory, Grant asks Rex to join his pack. This appeals to Rex because even though he is a vampire, he has never fit in with them. He has always felt more comfortable around the wolves. Margery is part of the Kincaid pack. She finds herself attracted to Rex, but doesn't want to be. She had an altercation with some rogue vampires when she was young and was almost killed. Because of that, Margery doesn't want to date one. When Margery is kidnapped because of one of Rex's hunts, he must fight to get her back and they must overcome the obstacles in their way to stay together. This is another great novella by Savannah Stuart. It has your typical alpha male who is strong, possesive, and very protective, but it also has a strong, independent female-I love the combination. Can't wait for the next one in this series!

Sexy vampire and headstrong shifter wolf. A part of the Crescent Moon series, a short story of two unlikely people who are brought together by danger. I was hoping that Margery would get a chance to fight her captor instead of Rex, but what do you expect from a vampire-hunter? Nice addition to the series.

I really enjoyed this installment in the series. Rex and Margery had great chemistry. I liked that despite their obvious attraction for one another, both are relationship challenged which made some scenes between them awkwardly cute.  The romance was steamy and the book is ideal for any reader who needs a quick paranormal read. ***I was gifted an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Awesome Shifter Romance, I love this series! This is the fourth book in this series, and can be read as a standalone. Rex is a very old vampire who is a bounty hunter, he hunts down other vampires, he feels like he doesn’t belong anywhere so that is why he loves his job. He is a strong alpha but has no desire to settle in one place that is until he meets Margery. Rex is visiting his friend Grant, the alpha of the Kincaid pack, when he meets Margery, and he is instantly drawn to her. Margery is a wolf shifter who hates vampires, because she was attacked by vampires many years ago. When Grant senses the attraction between Rex and Margery, he offers Rex a job and the opportunity to join the Kincaid pack. Rex decides that he wants to court Margery because he can sense that they are mates. When Margery is threatened, because of Rex’s job, he is determined to protect her at all costs. This book keeps you reading until the end! I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.  A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.
