Summary

True Mate is the first book in the Prosper Woods Chronicles, but don't miss True Knight, the incredible prequel to the series!

When I moved to Prosper Woods, California, a couple of weeks ago, I’d had big plans for a quiet life. Let’s just say, things haven’t exactly turned out the way I expected they would. For one thing, as new sheriff, I hadn’t planned on investigating a murder the day after my arrival. For another thing, no one told me supernatural creatures existed. I didn’t believe it at first, but when Vincent Lasco suddenly smiled at me with a mouth full of fangs, things got interesting.

Quiet small-town life indeed!

The moment I decided to take Sheriff Romeo Harmon home for a roll in the sheets, I knew hiding my true nature was a huge mistake. Then again, things never turn out the way I expect. The simple life of anonymity I’d hoped to have in Prosper Woods has blown up in my face in the most poetic and spectacular way. Not only that, the guy isn’t even aware that he has secrets of his own. How a guy could have lived all his life not knowing what he was, seems nearly impossible but in his case, I know it’s true.

Supernaturals are everywhere!

The town of Prosper Woods has a couple of new residents who at first glance, seem very unsuited for small town life. Before long though, I realized they were right for the town...probably the only right thing about this weird place. Surprisingly, they fit right in.

Things are about to get interesting!

Really good!

4.25 Stars!

First things first, you definitely need to read, or better yet, listen to True Knight before reading True Mate. 

I really enjoyed the continuation of Rome and Vincent's story. They are very well-suited for one another and I'm really liking how they're settling in as a couple. I also liked seeing how Rome is in better control of his 'powers' now. 

Also, you need to know that even if the book ends in a HFN, there's a bit of a cliffhanger, or rather, several issues that were left unresolved, which was a bit disappointing. I really liked that we got to see Greg come into his own and I hope we'll get to see more of him and Sam in the next book(s) in the series. 

The audiobook was very enjoyable. John Solo did a great job bringing the characters to life. I think one of my favorite parts of the audiobooks has been Mr. Solo reading the letters that the Prosper Town residents submit to the paper, it's so much fun!

Overall, the book was interesting, fast-paced, intriguing, and I'm already looking forward to more. I have no trouble recommending it.

So many super naturals 😀

This is a new to me author, but I can already say that I be checking out the other books in the series.
I really like the way the author keeps adding layers to the backstory and on the other hand stripping back layers to reveal more about characters in the book. This keeps everything exciting and of course the love story between unicorn & vampire and all the set ups for more love and new storylines are well done.

Amazing new series

Patricia Logan and John Solo outdid themselves. What a wonderful and unusual story. I recommend reading True Knight before listening to True mate, so you can fully enjoy the story line. I can hardly wait for the next installment of Proper Woods Chronicles.

Brilliant Second Book! ❤️❤️

Patricia Logan goes from strength to strength in the 1st book of the series, and is following on the story from the novella True Knight.

I’m really loving this series, especially as more characters are being introduced. Not just the MC’s but also Evan and Sam - they are so adorable 🥰

Can’t wait to hear True Blue, the next instalment, as can’t get enough of the folks of Prosper Woods ❤️❤️

5🌟’s for sure, and highly recommend if you love shifter/supernatural books 🥰🥰

True Hit!!!

We're picking up right where True Knight left us, so it's Vincent and Romeo and their inarguable chemistry right off the bat. The way Patricia wrote these two, it reminds me so much of Jarrett and Thayne, the bond between them palpable between pages.

It's a treat seeing Romeo grow into his new life in Prosper Woods, he's navigating life as a powerful & rare shifter along with his duties and responsibilities as a new sheriff in the supernatural-filled town. Not only that, he's also hopelessly irrefutably in love with his lover, Vincent - a warrior vampire. Vincent patiently guides Romeo in mastering his new-found powers and shifter abilities. While the threat that is Floyd, the Alpha of the werewolf pack, is hanging over Romeo and Vincent's heads, another threat waltzes in. More vampires - vicious and so unlike Vincent.

This book contains a lot of heat, because Romeo and Vincent, it also contains dramatic confrontations, an awesome fight scene, and some ghostly activities. Things are sure getting interesting in Prosper Woods, events are unfolding, things are evolving.

We also get to know more about the residents of Prosper Woods, specially the characters we met in True Knight. I love that Patricia gave us her signature character cameos but with a humorous twist, it left me questioning "was that really THEM?".

You know it's a great book when you don't want it to end. That pretty much sums up this audiobook. I want more. Between Patricia Logan's amazing storytelling, dynamic and colorful characters and epic world-building, making us all want to move to Prospect Woods plus John Solo's masterful narration, we are all left wanting for more of this series and it couldn't come soon enough!

Patricia Logan cant write these books fast enough!

Patricia Logan sure knows how to get a reader thoroughly hooked! With an absolutely brilliant start to the Prosper Woods Chronicles in the form of 'True Knight', the writer keeps us wanting more with 'True Mate'--the official first book of the series. Brilliantly narrated by John Solo, I was delighted to revisit this incredible world where shifters of every kind exist. There are new characters on the scene and new revelations from old friends. We have the absolute joy of seeing Sheriff Romeo Harmon grow into his powers as he is advised by his vampire lover Vincent Lasco. It's delightful to see their relationship grow and their love blossom. The sheriff's shocking realization of the supernatural beings that call Prosper Woods home is second only to his mortification that everyone knows 1) what kind of being he is and 2) that he is intimately involved with the male vampire Vincent Lasco! I find it HILARIOUS!!! But Romeo and Vincent have more to worry about and manage than small-town gossip. The local wolf pack's leader is dangerous as all hell and a group of very old vampires has decided to visit Vincent at Prosper Woods to claim something they shouldn't have! Ms. Logan is an especially clever writer in keeping her readers engaged without boredom, too much drama, or an over-emphasis on sexual intimacy. This story, like so much of her other work, is well balanced for the sub-genre. In this particular work, there is an amazing blend of scenes: we get an exciting thrill, then a warmly tender moment, then an incredible reveal, etc. She's also good at ensuring a resolution to a sub-plot or two after scaring us silly with the introduction of another mind-blowing sub-plot. It's all so good, it positively wicked! Darn her! 😁 I can't wait for the next book of this terrific series!

I didn't want to stop listening!

This book picks up pretty much after the events of the prequel True Knight. Sheriff Romeo is a unicorn shifter trying to figure out how to use his newfound powers with the help of his vampire lover Vincent. While things are still tense with the local werewolf pack, the remains of the old sheriff are found. Then Vincent gets a threat from some vampires from his past causing him to make a pretty huge decision. Ghosts are popping up now too. Never a dull day in Prosper Woods. I didn't want to stop listening this was so much fun. There are tons of surprising revelations and action, in and out of the bedroom. John Solo is truly a treasure. His ability to bring life to each character is incredible.

Bloody Marvelous, loved it!

The cheeky and steamy performance by John Solo fulfilled my prediction of the start of a stunningly enjoyable paranormal series; Prosper Woods Chronicles by the crafty Patricia Logan. My expectation of a novel filled with humor and originality was fulfilled many times over. So many characters, each with their own personality that matches a shifter animal. Absolutely bloody stunning!

The dramatic confrontational scenes and the conflict within the local werewolves pack, plus the introduction of unseen spiritual forces, a little boy called Blue, helped to keep the plot interesting which created a captivating synopsis. This narrator is a master of pacing and dramatic flair, he will carry listeners through the many layers of this story, while it feels like you are sitting in a movie theatre, eating popcorn, and watching a paranormal rom-com with a boisterous crowd.

I absolutely recommend this series. The characters are vibrant and it’s uniquely smartly plotted.
Happy Listening

These guys have gone and done it again!!!

Patricia and John are a match made in heaven!!! This book is so funny that I wonder how John doesn't crack up.

I especially love the letters to the editor! Where does she come up with these?

entertaining, engaging and really good storytelling

I read the prequel, True Knight, and knew I had to read this one. It didn’t disappoint. Romeo and Vincent are the main characters and their developing relationship is sweet. But the whole cast of characters are engaging and funny and some are downright bad. This series is entertaining and I can’t wait for the next one. It’s just really good storytelling. And, of course, John Solo’s narration was perfect.
