Being shot in his dire wolf form by his would-be mate while hunting caribou wasn’t exactly how Wachei expected to happen upon their first meeting. Heated kisses and passionate embraces, yes, but not flying bullets.

Eryn wasn’t pleased to see a strange man standing next to the caribou she’d just brought down. The kill was hers, and if he thought he could take it from her, he could think again. But once she comes near, and sees how gorgeous he is, suddenly getting as close as possible to the sexy stranger is job one.

As the heat between the couple intensifies, a threat looms, that of a lone wolf the sentinels have crossed paths with once before. Wachei knows he must bring Eryn into his world a lot sooner than he’d planned, especially when another threat is discovered—the very evil he and his wolf brothers were created to destroy is closer to home than they’d thought.

Ice Hunters Mate is the second book in the Werewolf Sentinels series. It has a unique storyline that can’t be beat : Ice Age werewolves , frozen for ten thousand years. This is a really entertaining story with some light humor. The story flows at a super fast pace. It’s a little on the short side but what the heck. I’ll take a good werewolf story any way I can get it.

Wachei and his five wolf brothers were the first werewolves – created by their big kahuna to protect against a coming evil. Finally awakened after a ten thousand year nap , the warriors struggle to acclimate in the modern world gets downright humorous at times. As predicted, they begin to find their mates. While hunting in his dire wolf form , Wachei is accidentally shot by his mate. At first Eryn is suspicious of the sexy stranger she meets as she is out hunting. But an attraction like they share just can’t be denied. Wachei can tell by Eryn’s irresistible scent that she is his mate. He is aware that the truth about him and his wolf brothers could be so shocking to his mate that he could loose her forever. He decides to take their courtship easy before claiming her as his mate. But Eryn’s acceptance of their mating bond isn’t the only thing Wachei has to worry about. An old enemy poses an inescapable danger to, not only the wolf brothers , but to their loved ones as well.

I really liked this short story. The characters were vibrant and unique. I adored Wachei as the sweet alpha hero. I admired his willingness to allow Eryn to make her own choices about their relationship. In a nutshell : Wachei was the ultimate alpha hero and I fell a little in love with him. Ice Hunters Mate was a quick and enjoyable read. I will continue to follow this series as the other warriors find their own mates.
