As a half Fae, half shifter, Andrea Gray is used to looking out for herself. But in order to relocated to a new Shifter town and escape an unwanted mate-claim, Andrea must except a new protector. A Guardian seems as good as candidate as any, but Andrea's intense attraction to Sean is something she never expected-and a perilous complication for a woman with a trouble past.
Now, As Andrea struggles to keep her seductive savior at arm's length, Sean is determined to turn their mating of convenience into the real thing before the frenzy they're struggling to contain burns them both-from inside out.
This is the second book of Ms Ashley's Pride Mates series. I really enjoyed this book I think I liked it almost better then the first one. You met Sean in the first book and he is a big man with a very strong will, but then he has to be to be the Guardian. It is a job he knows he has to do but it make him sad at times. Andrea is just a person who wants to fit in. In her old home she was being chased by a man who she didn't want and he wanted to make her his mate. She was bullied and her step father was beaten up. She also wants to know who her real father is, since she is half Fae and the shifters don't like the Fae she has always been a outcast.
She moves to Sean Shifter town and finds something she has never known in her life and that is a almost since of belonging, and she is also falling for Sean. Because of her half Fae, she and Sean share something special. When she is asked to try to help heal someone it is with the help of Sean and his sword that she can do it, she is a little more powerful with him around.
I loved these two, Andrea takes nothing off of anybody and will do whatever she needs to do to protect and help her mate. Sean knows from the first time he meets Andrea that she is the one for him. He just needs to confuse her of that.
As I said I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the next one.
