Summary

Brand meets his dream girl in college - a half-human, half-leopard shapeshifter who cannot shift. Werewolves and cats are natural enemies but the power of their sexual chemistry overwhelms them. She steals his heart and makes him whole. When she abandons him it fractures his world, and he knows no woman can ever take her place. Though many seek his attention, he is cold and unattainable.

The love they share is soul deep, but the fate of Charma’s family lies in her hands. The memory of every heated touch they share will cut out both their hearts when she leaves him, but to save them all she must run. After nine years of desolation and heartbreak, Charma is back. She risks forfeiting her life to warn Brand of an impending attack, but she doesn’t hesitate. Brand has her in his arms once more, and he will never lose her again.

Great book

Loved this addition to the series. The relationship between Charma and Brand is interesting, and unlike the others in the series they have history. Despite leaving him all those years before, she still cared enough for him to come and warn him of the impending danger he was in. True love conquered all in this story. The NSFW moments were well written and narrated. Excellent narration again by G C VonCloudts

Brand and Charma....chemistry!

After nine years, Charma comes back to warn Brand of an upcoming attack. Being together with Brand again Charma is now in the life she always wanted with who she always wanted.

This is the newest book in the Mating Series. If you have not read this series and you love werewolves, you should check this series out. I started reading this series after I got into her New Species series, which is one of my top picks.

I enjoy Laurann Dohner's writing, characters and story lines. I am enjoying this series and look forward to upcoming books.

G.C. VanCoudts narration is great. Her voice is perfect for this series and made the book that much more enjoyable.

Sexy-licious Brand!

L Dohner is the queen of shifter sexiness! Mating Brand is the 3rd in the wolf shifter series, and like it's companion books it was hot, super romantic and pretty funny, which was an added bonus. I'm also a major fan of the narrator, her voice fits the characters really well; I almost forget she's a woman when she does the male voices, and that's saying something! If you're looking for a lot of depth and realistic situations, this isn't the book for you, but it's great for strictly sexy entertainment purposes. I highly recommend this book (series), and happily spend a credit for it!

“Mine” she whispered against his skin “Fuck Yes"

Any additional comments?

Brand and Charma come from two different worlds and their kinds aren't allowed to be together. I hear you. I too hate when characters are ripped apart for years then brought back together, but this worked for me. Charma had to make some tough choices at a pretty young age. The cat shifter community runs with stricter and more harsh laws so she did what she had to do to save her family, leaving Brand behind thinking that maybe he could move on and find someone who could really be his mate...

Nine years later Charma is stuck with an abusive husband/mate who she was forced to be with to keep her family safe. He is abusive in all ways and it’s extremely heartbreaking. The first 10% really pulls at the heartstrings in making me feel for Charma and understanding why she did what she did. Now that her family is safe she could run, but she doesn't have anywhere to go and has no idea how to even find Brand. She believes the chances of him not having moved on are none. Then one day she finds out her pack is about to attack another and she sees his photo in the stack of targets. She still loves him deeply and if there is one thing she can do it is at least save his life and warn him of what’s coming...

Most of the story is a gush of love and mating heat sex with a nice dab of Action included into this wonderful mix... This book is Full of All the Good Stuff Laurann can throw into a fab story... Bring on book 4, I cant wiat :)

5 Mating Brand Stars

In book two we learn about Brand and how we had a relationship with a she-cat.
Well that she-cat comes back to warn him and his pack about her pride and the other pride's going after them for revenge from what happened in book two.

I loved how when Brand sees her he automatically won’t let her go again. And how their connection is as strong as it was even with the time they were apart.

This book is action-packed and HELLA sexy no lye lots of steamy scenes.

I kinda of wanted another book!! I loved how this one ended but I feel like we are missing some great side characters stories like the cousin and the enforcers. I am sad that it seems like this series is done.

I loved the narration, the male voice’s the female voice’s G.C. VanCoudts does a freaking amazing job!

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Sweetness

I love this book.
While Dohnner is one my favorite authors, the other books in this series are a little heavy on the bedroom scenes and light on the plot. However, this one makes up for all the faults in the earlier books. The love story between the main characters is so sweet and perfect. There is no made up drama or silly misunderstandings. They know what they want and recognize their feelings from the start. Circumstances force them apart but when they're given another chance, they don't hesitate for a minute. It makes for a wonderful, heart warming read that I would highly recommend for any romance fan.

Good narration.

Charma just came across as too weak and overwrought during the battle scene but apart from that it was enjoyable. BOOK REVIEW Wonderful that these two get their much deserved HEA. Another great read in this wonderful world of Mating Heat. The honesty between these two and the way the story unfolds is great. Poor Charma having to be mated to the ratbag Garrett to save her family. Brand is one serious, charming and wonderful alpha male. Charma racing to Brands pack to warn him of danger, Brand refusing to let her go ever again. I have owned these books for years but my reviews have disappeared. Reviewing as I read them again is a pleasure but I believe there is a newer version published. My favourite in this series but I would really love to get Von, Rave and even young Braden’s story. I would also like their dad Elroy to get a real mate in the future. Ms Dohner has not touched this series for years so this may never happen.

A fantastic story

Ms.Dohner is ALWAYS great with romantic, erotic stories. I have read and listened to this book several times. It's definitely on my repeat list. Great narrator on this audio and with the picture on front makes it a amazing visual read. Keep them coming please.

Long lost love returns!

I'm glad that Brand got his own story in this series. He is such a likable character! The heroine is sweet and self-sacrificing for her parents and siblings. When the two are reunited after years apart their romance picks up pretty much where it left off. Nice happy ending. Narration again was okay except the weak male voices drove me a little nuts.

love it!! 😘😘

Can't believe I read the whole book already!!! Can't wait for. I hope future books will let us know what kind of shifter these half- breeds turn out to be. Maybe a book about one of them grown up.😁😁
