SAVING HIS MATE is a novella and the fourth installment in
Savannah Stuart's Crescent Moon series. I love
this Crescent Moon series and SAVING HIS MATE is a
example of why. Every time a new book in this series comes
out, I know I'm in for a treat. Even though SAVING HIS MATE
is only a novella, the overall story and the romance
between Margery and Rex never felt rushed.
Margery and Rex find a connection and an intense
attraction, despite coming from different worlds. She is a
wolf shifter and "mother figure" to her pack, while he is a
vampire and a bounty hunter. Rex really makes this story
for me. Due to some painful memories from her past
involving vampires, Margery is determined to never get
involved with one -- either romantically or in any other
In the face of her dismissal, rather than embark
on an aggressive and obnoxious campaign to win her over,
Rex woos her in ways like helping work her busy bakery. He
employs very heady and seductive means of persuasion, which
Margery is utterly charmed by. I also like his sensitivity
to Margery's past traumatic experience with other vampires.
It's his sensitivity and the way he treats her with such
respect that make Margery thaw toward him. The chemistry
between Rex and Margery is fierce and it makes for some
electric and very sensual scenes.
The elements of danger and a lot of the action in SAVING
HIS MATE come from Rex hunting rogue vampires. I think this
adds a nice counterpoint to the sexiness and romance. The
action never overbalances the romance. The good story-
telling and great characters add depth and make for a
SAVING HIS MATE is exciting, sexy, fun, and everything that
makes a paranormal romance so delicious! I look forward to
seeing if more vampires make appearances in Savannah
Stuart's world of shifters. The possibilities are
intriguing. I can't wait to read the next book in this
From the moment vampire bounty-hunter Rex Serano meets sexy shifter
Margery, he’s smitten. When the alpha of the Kincaid pack asks him to
join with them, he’s stunned by the offer, but the real draw is the
beautiful, caring female who seems to want nothing to do with him.
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.
