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.
Rex is a bounty hunter and tracks down rogue vampires. He's spent quite a lot of time recently in Grant's territory and the alpha wolf surprises him with an offer to become part of his pack. Rex is flattered, but whilst considering his options, meets the woman of his dreams. Margery just has to walk into the room and Rex is beyond smitten as Margery is meant to be his mate! Slight problem though as Margery has good reason to fear vampires but the appealing Rex is always up for a challenge !
Rex sets out to woo the lovely shifter but the job he's been doing is about to bite him where it hurts! Not everyone agrees with him helping to police the vampire world and suddenly he's vulnerable. The vulnerability has a name, it's Margery! Rex is not going to lose her especially when he's not even tasted her yet! Margery may be in danger but woe betide anyone who gets between Rex and his female because this boy bites back!
I love Ms Stuart's shifter tales, although I always wish they were longer. Rex, what can I say about that mean vampire? He's been a loner for a long time but shows no hesitation in his pursuit of Margery. I absolutely loved the way he just powers in, rolls up his sleeves, and gets stuck in! This is one guy who clearly won't take no for an answer and Margery is a very lucky lady!
As for Margery, her earlier life experiences of vampires could well poison any hopes of a happy ending with Rex. There's one thing for sure, Margery is not a quitter. She's always been quite motherly to her pack members and is perceived as part of it's backbone, so she deserves a little excitement in her life. Unfortunately Margery gets a little more then she had bargained for but with Rex in the picture I don't think many sane women would complain.
This had a delicious fast pace and a great sense if immediacy to it. No waiting around for something to happen with Saving His Mate! It would be all too easy for Margery to be whiny or pathetic because of her previous experience but she's a survivor. She's not the cocky tough sort though and I really liked her. Ms Stuart has a way of dragging the reader in and it's a fantastic world she writes about. These extremely likable characters took me on a journey filled with action and romance. Loved the determined and protective Rex and really felt for Margery, who had to overcome her instincts. This was great fun to read and I heartily recommend Ms Stuart's work.
