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

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.*

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.

“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 :)

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!

SADLY IT JUST DIDN'T DO IT FOR ME

I love L.D's books and I'm slowly trying to get through all of them but sadly I was disappointed with this one. Not because it's not well written or well narrated but because the H/H loved each other from the start so there was no build-up or slow sizzle. They had to part but years later when they met again it was an instant 'claiming' thing.

There was conflict between Shifter Species, a bit of tension, drama and of course sex and yes there was romance but without that slow burn and the anticipation that brings it just didn't hold my attention, I wasn't gripped and my mind drifted to other things whilst listening to it.

Worth a credit? It's a Dohner book so I should be saying YES but unfortunately, for me, this time it's got to be a NO.

Not up to LD capabilities

I was so disappointed in this book. I love Laurann Dohner's writing and this one just missed the mark by a long shot. It was difficult for me to listen to the end on this one because it was just so boring.
Hoping any others coming up in her New Species series is better than this. I'm so happy that I bought this one when it was on sale for $3.67.

Mix Breeds, True Love!

This was book three of the "Mating Heat" series and the last one on audible, I sure hope there will be more in the future.

Brand and Charma met in college and fell in love, but there's only one problem, she is half Human and half Leopard shapeshifter, and he is a wolf!  We hear the story of their years of separation and why, and also what brings them back together again.

Just like in book two there may be some triggers for some people due to the violence against a woman, so just be aware of that before selecting this book.

Their love story is actually heartfelt, and I really enjoyed this story.  Also in this book, I feel that we got a better ending than in the last two books as Laurann gave us a good ending by telling us about all the characters in the story.  However, I think she could have made it much more special if she would have made the story longer by telling us about the baby shifters that Brand and Charma are about to have; and let us know if they get the Leopard genes or the Wolf genes.  

I really do enjoy Laurann's creative stories, but she always stops short of an amazing ending in my opinion.  I hope she gives the rest of the Harris boys their own story and releases it on audible.  

When she does, I will be listening!

3.5 stars

A sweet second chance, paranormal story, that also had possible triggers for some readers. Not my favorite of the series, but still good. I was hoping to see a future book between her sister and his cousin, their story seemed like one I would really enjoy.
