To Catch His Mate by Katie Reus, Savannah Stuart

When she ran, she didn't think he'd follow...

Pack princess Alyssa Clare was trying to come up with ways to get out of her arranged mating to alpha wolf Reece O'Shea--until she meets the powerful male. After getting to know him, mating doesn't seem like such a bad idea anymore. But when he makes it clear she's just a business arrangement for him and his pack, she calls off the mating and heads south to stay with a friend to lick her wounds in private.

But he's not willing to let her go without a fight.

Reece can't let Alyssa go, not when he's completely fallen for the sweet, sexy female. He doesn't care about the arranged mating deal, he just wants her and has no idea why she ran. To win her back he infiltrates another alpha's territory, knowing it could mean his death. Luckily Grant Kincaid allows him in his domain--as long as Alyssa is okay with it. Convincing her that she's all he wants is a bigger challenge than he imagined. But he's not giving up, because he knows she's the one he's meant to be with forever.

Review: This will not be a long review because this is a novella and if I give away a lot, there goes the whole book. What I will say though, is that the Author puts a lot of story in a small package. I was very satisfied with this paranormal romance. It was well-executed, great characters, no cliff-hangers, sexy, romantic and you not only get Reece and Alyssa's story but Alyssa's father gets a little romance too. I always like this Author's storytelling and pick up a review copy whenever I can. If you are looking for a quick, entertaining, paranormal read then I would highly suggest this book and the series for that matter. 4Stars *Received a copy of this book from the Author in exchange for a fair and honest review.*

I've read all the books so far in the Crescent Moon series and I must say this addition to the series ha become an instant fave. It's like an old fashioned "courting" that Reece has to do to convince Alyssa that she should be his. There are some humorous moments as well to lighten up the read.

Author Savannah Stuart knows how to write a great book with great characters. Alyssa Clare is considered a pack princess. She is not happy with her father who has made an arranged mating with Alpha Reece O'Shea. Alyssa is wanting a mating on feelings and not for anything less. When she over hears Reece stating it was a business arraignment to help his pack, Alyssa runs. Reece is holding back the truth and will follow his mate wherever she may go. I enjoyed this story and cannot wait to read more. :)

An entertaining, quick paranormal shifter romance that works well as a standalone! There was a gaping hole in his chest without her. The three weeks he’d spent with her had been the best of his life. She was like this bright, shining star that had been ripped away from him. He was territorial as hell and he wasn’t letting her go. --- No way was she forcing Reece into a mating he didn't want. Wolves mated for life and it wouldn't be fair to either of them. And she wasn't ashamed to admit that she wanted love and a lasting partnership. She refused to settle for less. I absolutely inhaled TO CATCH HIS MATE by Savannah Stuart. It was an entertaining, quick paranormal shifter romance. It's the first book I've read in this series but I can attest that it works very well as a standalone, even though it's the fifth installment in the author's Crescent Moon series. It was so enjoyable that I'm now resolved to go back and catch up with this series soon. This was the story of two wolf shifters, Alyssa Clare and Reece O'Shea. As the story opens, pack princess Alyssa had originally been vehemently opposed to the mating her father has arranged for her with Reece. However, after meeting Reece in person, she has changed her mind as he is a genuinely great guy and she is seriously attracted to him. Then... she overhears Reece talking to a pack mate about her - it's not what she wants to hear. Because she is determined to have a loving relationship like her parents had had, she decides right then and there that she will not mate with Reece after all and disappears from both her father's and Reece's radar. Reece, however, is equally determined to make her his. He knows he made an error in judgement. Can he find her and repair the misunderstanding so she'll accept him as her mate? I really liked both the leads. Reece was a relatively new alpha to a small, but growing, pack. He was smokin' hot, strong and his only fear was of losing the woman who meant everything to him. He absolutely amazed me with the maneuvers he employed to get her back. Alyssa was used to her father's large pack. She was beautiful, sexy, spirited and not afraid to stand up for herself. The couple's budding romance was sweet and hot as they tap-danced around each other. There was no doubt they had steamy chemistry... but could they learn to trust each other and allow love to develop between them? As an aside to the couple's amorous antics, I was intrigued with the pack politics and protocol and was fascinated with how the packs spotlighted in this tale integrated into society. As a subplot, Alyssa's father had his hands full with a relationship issue of his own. 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. Katie is one of my favorite authors. Even though this is a short story, the characters and story line were fully developed and it wasn't rushed in the least. I would highly recommend TO CATCH HIS MATE to anyone who enjoys paranormal romances. You will definitely want to read it in one sitting.

I have not read anything in this series so I have nothing else to base this story on but what I have been given is great. The characters are fully developed as is the story and I didn’t feel like any of it is incomplete or that it needs previous stories to get the full depth. I really liked Alyssa and I understand why she ran. New feelings have enough volatility so adding in a misunderstanding can easily throw things into a whirlwind. And while that could be a tired, overused plot I think that here it works. One of the reasons is that there is something very appealing about Reece as he tries to win her back. Maybe it is the added paranormal parts that keep it going, although that could be easily overdone as well, but whatever it is I really enjoyed it. Although the Were part is important, at the core it is a story of a man who is trying to win back the woman he loves. It’s sweet and hot and fun. And I’m definitely interested in seeing where else this world goes. (Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review)

This is the fifth book in the Crescent Moon series of novella length but it can be read as a stand-alone (although all the other books in this series are amazing so I urge anyone who hasn't read them, to read them!) What can I say! This series is amazing and To Catch His Mate is a great addition! Alyssa and Reece were great together and I loved the dynamics between the two! Alyssa is one of my favorite characters thus far! Her quick wit and spunk definitely keep Reece on his toes. The chemistry between the two was sensational! I definitely recommend this to any para-romance lover!

Alyssa is the Alphas daughter. Her father sets up an arranged mating with an Alpha of a nearby pack. She is totally against this until she meets her mate to be. After spending time with Reese she starts falling for him and she believes that he feels the same. But after overhearing a conversation Reese has with a fellow packmate she finds out that it's nothing more than a business deal, or so she thinks... Reese is head over heels in love with Alyssa and when she calls off the mating and takes off he's furious, there is no way that he is going to let his mate go. This was a short and sweet read. After Reese finds out why Alyssa ran from him he is determined to prove himself to her. Instead of being the typical caveman type Alpha, he decides to woo her and a earn her trust back. He's so sweet and understanding and I totally fell in love with him! I also enjoyed the side story involving Alyssa's father. If you are looking for a quick steamy read with a sexy, possessive and protective Alpha who will do anything to win back his mate then I definitely recommend this story! *I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

A great addition to an established series. To Claim His Mate is Book 5 in the Crescent Moon Shifter Series. This paranormal series is a must read for me. I enjoy the interaction of the characters. All the books can be read as a stand-alone, although characters from prior books make appearances in subsequent books. I really liked the Alyssa and Reece’s story. Reece had seen Alyssa from a distance and contacted her father (the Alpha of her pack) to arrange and mating/meeting. Alyssa was against this at first but once she meets Reece and gets to know him she seems to be onboard with the mating. He makes her feel “things”. Alyssa over-hears Reece talking to another member of his pack about the mating being for business reasons only – she was developing feelings for him so hearing this hurts her and offends her “wolf”. She leaves – then telephones Reece and tells him she is not interested in mating. Reece tries to find her (she left her pack to stay with a friend) and the story is what he does and how he acts to attempt to win her back. It was a quick read with some steamy scenes.

#TEAMReece all the way OMG! I loved this book! Alyssa Clare is in love with Alpha of the O'Shea pack, Reece, but she heard him say some unflattering things about their upcoming marriage and how he saw it and in essence her. When Alyssa heard this, she was devastated. She ran away , devastated and sought to find some peace at a different location and with a different pack where Reece cannot find her. When Reece finds out what happened and that Alyssa has left, he cannot stand it. Yes, this was an arranged marriage but he fell for her. There was a spark, there WAS chemistry and he realized once she was gone, he needed her, wanted her. There was something special about her and he needed to bring her back and prove to her how much she was loved and needed by him. Also, there is a 2nd storyline going on at the same time regarding Alyssa’s dad and Alyssa’s friend Ember. Loved their storyline- It is a twofer storyline going on and the storylines going on was fantastic. The chemistry between both couples was wonderful and I have to say, watching Reece go from a ego driven Alpha to a humble yet Dominant Alpha male was awesome. Alyssa is sure one lucky gal and This is one of the best stories in the Crescent Moon Series. My rating: 4.8 stars ***** ***A gifted copy was provided by the author for my honest review****

The 5th book in the Crescent Moon series, a short and quick read, but worth every second. Alyssa, princess in her pack, is put into an arranged marriage by her dad, the pack leader. She is so against it, until she meets her intended. When she meets Reece, the attraction is undeniable, and she is actually agreeable to the marriage. Until she overhears Reece taking to his pack mates, and takes off. Reece, is looking forward to the arranged marriage. Since the first time he saw her he knew she was it for him. I loved Alyssa and Reece, and the fact that Reece was willing to do anything to get his mate back, even if it puts himself in danger. Alyssa isn't gonna make it easy for him though, Not only is she upset her father arranged the marriage, but then hearing it is only for an alliance for her intendeds pack, well that she won't accept. These two have so much chemistry I wished the story had gone on longer. *An ARC was given in exchange for an honest review*

I absolutely loved it! Alyssa may not be strong physically but she is headstrong female with an ironclad will who stands up to Reece and her father about the stupid "arranged mating." I admire Alyssa’s courage and I was glad to see her figure out her worth and not settle for anything less than what she wanted and needed. Reece is your average dumb-dumb male alpha wolf. Instead of standing up to his pack mates and defending Alyssa, he does something even more stupid by playing off his mating to Alyssa by calling it a political alliance, what's best for the pack. No, just no. Some wolves never learn and some—like Alyssa's father—are stuck in a time warp. TO CATCH HIS MATE is a fun, short read full of broodingly sexy alpha males and their penchant for passion, possessiveness and dominance. Love the book, love the series, and love the author! ***I was gifted an eBook copy from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own***

Good story, but 2.99 for 65 pages is wrong.

I received a chance to read To Catch His Mate by Savannah Stuart. First off, it's a novella and a pretty quick one with little drama. Basically, we have Reese O'Shea who is an alpha pack leader. You would hope pack leader is an alpha, anyway. He finds Alyssa Clare and she's pack princess of the Clare pack, and he wants to make her his mate. However, Alyssa gets the impression that it's a business arrangement than anything else. There you go the drama in the nutshell. Basically, Reese needs to prove to Alyssa that it's more than a business agreement in order to get their happy ever after. Seriously, a quick read and it's kind of sweet. So, if you are looking for something that isn't too dramatic and quick, To Catch His Mate is your read.

Great Book! This is a great book; this is the fifth book in the Crescent Moon series by Savannah Stuart (Katie Reus). This book can be read as a standalone, but once you read one you will want to go back and read the other books. Alyssa Clare is the daughter of the packs Alpha. She is trying to get out of a way to the arranged mating to alpha wolf Reece O’Shea that is until she meets the sexy male. When she overhears a conversation between Reece and a pack member she knows that the mating if a business arrangement so she takes off. Reece will do anything to mate with Alyssa, he is determined to find her and claim her. If you are looking for a great paranormal romance that you can read in one sitting, then you need to read this book. I can’t wait until the next book in this series comes out. 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.

It was supposed to be an arranged mating until they met each other. Pack princess Alyssa Clare and Alpha wolf Reece O’Shea are in big trouble. Well not that big since they are supposed to be mated anyway but Alyssa suddenly backs out of the arrangement. Reece can’t help but wonder what went wrong. He though Alyssa wanted everything he did, he though they were having a great time and in fact he has completely fallen for her. So when Alyssa calls off the mating, Reece isn’t that willing to let her go. To catch his mate was a short and sweet story. Alyssa and Reece were two great and strong characters willing to do anything to protect their packs and the people they love. Alyssa though that for Reece their mating was just a business arrangement but she couldn’t be more wrong. Reece risked everything by entering Kincaid territory without approval just to get Alyssa to give him a chance to explain and that was really sweet. I really enjoyed the fact that we got to see Grant and Alyssa’s father, Kayne and her best friend, Ember. There’s definitely something between them, so look out for it! The Alpha won’t know what hit him! To catch his mate was a really great short story that will definitely make you want more! *ARC provided in exchange for an honest review*

Alyssa was in love with Reece, the Alpha of the O'Shea pack. It was an arranged mating, but she thought that they had a chance at happiness. She's devastated when she hears him say that he's with her to form a bond with her father. She runs away. She won't settle for a mate who doesn't love her. Reece doesn't understand why she left? Get ready for fireworks. Alyssa may be young and unsure of herself but she won't be told what to do. I love her feisty spirit and her determination. I'm glad that she will stand up for herself. Reece is a strong minded Alpha. He is drawn to Alyssa. He won't let her run a way from him. He needs her in his life. I'm glad that she didn't give in and made him court her. He needs to understand that you stand up for the woman you love. It's always enjoyable to read A Crescent Moon Story. There is always plenty of action as well as a scorching romance. Savannah Stuart/Katie Reus excels at writing characters that grab you and pull you into the story. I can't wait for more.

TO CATCH HIS MATE is the fifth installment in Savannah Stuart's (Katie Reus) adult, contemporary CRESCENT MOON erotic, paranormal romance series. This is alpha wolf Reece O'Shea, and Clare Pack princess Alyssa Clare's storyline. TO CATCH HIS MATE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Told from several third person perspectives TO CATCH HIS MATE follows two paths towards two different matings. Alyssa is the daughter of the Clare Pack Alpha, and as such is considered Pack royalty but when a mating is 'arranged' by her father, and Reece O'Shea,the O'Shea Pack alpha, Alyssa is caught off guard when she discovers that the mating is a business arrangement between the Packs. Unsure as to her own future, our heroine heads to the Kincaid Pack where she asks Grant Kincaid for protection and reassurance against a forced mating. What ensues for Reece O'Shea is the hunt for his future mate, and the need to address the rumors and innuendo about their forced mating. We also learn that Alyssa's mother died in child birth and her father Kayne Clare, the Clare Pack alpha, has never considered finding another mate until now. Alyssa's best friend Ember has fallen in love with Kayne, and the feelings are mutual between Ember and Alyssa's father. Alyssa suspects that her father has fallen in love with Ember but pushing her best friend and father together makes things a little uncomfortable for a woman whose own love life has become a little too complicated with the call to mate. TO CATCH HIS MATE is another fascinating and sexually graphic, erotic romance storyline by Katie Reus writing as Savannah Stuart. Reece is a strong, Alpha male who must woo and court the woman who calls to his heart because a mating between two strong shifters is never going to be easy. The premise is flirty and impassioned; the characters are entertaining and fun; the romance is seductive and not without some apologies and chagrin. Katie Reus (Savannah Stuart) continues to be one of my go-to authors every time.

NUMBER OF HEARTS: 4 To Catch His Mate was a quick and enjoyable read. I very much liked Reece and Alyssa’s story. Reece messes up royally in the beginning. But like any good Alpha male he knows when to turn on the charm and add a little groveling to win what is his. As stated this is a novella so I don’t want to give away too much of the story. But know that Alyssa makes life a little rough for poor Reece. Oh and there is a secondary romance in this book that I just loved as much as Alyssa and Reece. I really can’t wait to see what is up next in the Crescent Moon series. Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book from KR Press, LLC in exchange for an honest review.

I liked this short novella. It was a light enjoyable read to add to the crescent moon series. These books are always a joy to read. I like the Alphas in them. They know what they want and go after it.

When it comes to the Crescent Moon Series, one thing this author does is go all in and I love every moment of it. This series always have action in it, no matter how big or small a situation between the characters are, you will never have one boring moment. The chemistry between the characters is there and hell, when it comes to the sex scenes the steamier the better. Alyssa and Reece have an arranged mating but when Alyssa overhears something that is said she’s no longer interested in mating with Reece. Reece wants Alyssa as bad as she seemed to want him but when Alyssa up’s and leaves he’s determined to bring her back home; his home is where she belongs. I enjoyed reading the sweet moments between Reece and Alyssa and also the chemistry and moments between Alyssa’s father and Ember. I enjoyed this novella and I can’t wait to read the next one in the series. If you love paranormal reads you will love this one and what’s even more amazing, is that you don’t have to read the previous stories in the series to follow this one. However, I highly recommend you giving all of the books a try because they are all worth reading.

Alphas should always stand by their mates… This is the fifth book in the Crescent Moon series of novella length that can be read as a stand-alone. Daughter of the alpha of her wolf pack, Alyssa Clare wasn’t happy that her father arranged a mating for her with the alpha of a neighboring pack. Then she met said mate and found herself immediately drawn to him so perhaps the arrangement wasn't a bad idea and her wolf agreed. Alyssa’s always longed for the kind of pairing her parents had which was based on love but when she overhears a conversation in which her intended mate stressed the reason for the mating was to unite the packs in allegiance she bolts, cancelling the mating. Needing space from her own pack she runs off to stay with friends. Alpha Reece O’Shea is more than smitten with his intended mate. He didn’t arrange the mating when he asked her father to allow him to court her that was her father’s idea. He’s wanted her since he first saw her in town. They were getting along beautifully so he doesn’t understand why she ran from him. She’s his mate and he’s not giving up on her so he follows her to another pack’s territory and without prior approval that could be dangerous but he’ll do whatever it takes to get her back. This was a short cute enjoyable romance. Reece, a young alpha had a serious lesson to learn when it comes to mates and Alyssa, a woman who knew what she wanted wasn’t going to let him off easy. For being an overprotected pack princess she’s got lots of spunk. Reece wasn't the only one with something to learn, Alyssa’s father whose intentions were good should have known to let nature take its course without a push from him but then he’s been seriously out of sorts over a female member of his own pack. It was nice having a mini-romance taking place in the background. ARC provided by the author.
