Danger shouldn't be this sexy...
Cougar shifter Abby Carter always plays it safe. That's why she's an accountant--no excitement, no danger, and no cocky alpha males. She loves her quiet life, but fate has other plans. When Abby uncovers the shady dealings of an anti-shifter organization, she'll have to trust the too-sexy-for-her-peace-of-mind werewolf Declan Reed... or end up six feet under.
Declan Reed is starting over. After two years with Shifter Operations Command, it's time to put his past behind him. Now Declan is the only thing standing between the gorgeous Abby and an early grave, and if he's going to have any chance of keeping her alive, he'll have to embrace the darkness he's fought to keep at bay. But first he has to convince Abby that there's no safer place in the world than the arms of a big bad werewolf.

Wolf’s Mate by Celia Kyle is the first book in her Shifter Rogues series. Wolf’s Mate is the first book I have read by this author, but will certainly not be my last.
Fast paced with colorful characters, humor and action, Wolf’s Mate kept me on my toes! Abby is an easy character to relate to. She was both strong, yet carrying some scars from her past, making her all the more likeable. Kyle sets a fast pace with the storyline and eases into the romance, which allowed the story to build with an organic feel. Declan and his team are a hoot to read about. From surly to fun loving, the group had almost its own character.
Shifter Rogues takes place in world where shifter’s are not known to the general public, but a group of anti-shifter extremists exists. Their sole mission genocide upon all shifters. This premise provided a good conflict for the series and I can’t wait to read about what happens next.
Kyle doesn’t hold back on the cursing – THANK YOU – and the combination of humor and language often had me laughing out loud. Wolf’s Mate is a fun and entertaining read. There were a few inconsistencies within the story, but overall the positives outweighed any negatives by far. I would recommend this paranormal romance to anyone with a love for humor and shifters.
