Arawl is the youngest son of the alpha and portal guardian for Evarue werewolf tribe. It is a thankless, demanding duty and he despises the impingement on his freedom that other unmated males enjoy. He wants his freedom more than anything, instead he is expected to take a mate and be an upstanding male in the tribe. There is no fun in that. When an opportunity comes for him to escape to the human world for a single day of pleasures among humans, he jumps at the chance. He doesn’t expect himself to encounter a female who makes his mating instinct roar to life, nor to wake up in his true form accidentally mated!
Ana hasn’t had an easy life. When she aged out of the foster care system without family ties, it left her with no one except her best friend Jinx. Though she mourns the one thing that’s been missing most of her life, she isn’t going to trust her heart to just anyone…certainly not a fickle male who isn’t interested in settling down. When a sexy stranger she brings home turns out to be an enormous man-wolf she didn’t think she could be any more surprised—until she discovers that, during their wild night of passion, he accidentally mated her to him. Now she must enter a world she never imagined in order to find the one person who might be able to sever the unintended bond between them. She doesn’t expect to fall in love with the people, nor to find herself in the midst of a mystery when females begin to go missing once again from the tribe. It could be the adventure of a lifetime, or the fates may have something more in mind for this stubborn witch.
Review by Nancy
Not your typical werewolf story! I really like how the story started out with some young people having fun on Halloween. Ana and Jinx are best friends, witches, and they work together at a bar. Halloween finds them shopping for decorations for the bar and has Ana bumping into the most gorgous, magnetic man. Arawl is only visiting the human world during the full moon to blow off some steam, but he is drawn to a beautiful human. When Ana and Arawl wake up after a night of passion, they find themselves accidentally mated. This leaves Arawl in his true werewolf form, permanently! And Ana is Arawl’s “true mate,” which hasn’t happened for generations. This begins the adventure through the portal to the werewolf tribe. Jinx goes, too! Females are disappearing and Arawl puts a group together to get to the bottom of it. A long trek through many lands holds hidden danger. Will they stay together and survive? It was a nail-biter until the very end!
I fell in love with many of the characters; especially, Arawl’s sister, Fahuri. I’m hoping we will get the story about her love trio in the future. The Accidental Werewolf’s Mate is quite the adventure through a very magical world. It will keep you guessing about what will happen next. Another great story from S.J. Sanders! 4 stars
