The prophecy said she belonged to a stranger …
For decades, the Wolf and Cat Shifter Clans of Washington State have been kept in peace by an uneasy truce and a favor owed between their leaders. At last, Damian is calling in that debt, and with it, his natural enemy Logan Cross has just become entrusted with the most precious of tasks: to retrieve the prophesied mate of the Wolf Prince and protect her from all others.
… She had other ideas.
Tara Stuart has always known of the powers that came with her birthright, powers that could either unite or destroy depending on the mate at her side to help wield them. She’s been trained in the magick, her skills honed. But she would run far and fast before letting primal, seductive Logan Cross deliver her to a complete stranger. She believes her destiny lies elsewhere, maybe even with Logan.

"I absolutely loved this story. I was so unsure in the beginning of HUNTED MATE who to pull for. Did I want Tara with the noble, attractive and dark Damien? Or should I pull for the passionate, hunky and rugged Logan? Thomas knows how to create a setting because I could picture it in my mind and the story got me hooked. ...The chemistry between Tara and Logan is intense and I loved the passion between them."

"HUNTED MATE by Kari Thomas is a sensual, exciting, paranormal romance which tests the boundaries of loyalty, trust, honor, different shifter species, and the love of a woman and a half man, half beast. Travel an exciting path and be swept away in a world beyond our own."
Angela Verdenius, Author of SOUL OF A PREDATOR
"The characters captivated me from the first page and the way the author laid the ground work for her story was just right. It didn't take me long at all to be completely engrossed in this story. Tara's spunk was refreshing and I found Logan to be just delicious. The danger and suspense kept me reading while the romance and the passion kept me dreaming. Very good book!"
