Description from the publisher:
Mission: Scent a Mate

Jordan Alvarez knew that a promise to her best friend involved staking out the local wolf pack's scenting ceremony and recording the graphic details, but she was the writer and the only one with the balls to finish the task.  No one would know that four human women had sneaked proof of their rituals, or at least, that was the plan until Aric Wolfe showed up.

Mission: Stake a Claim
Aric Wolfe knew his baby sister was up to something, and expected her best friend, Jordan, to be in on the chaos. He finally had an opportunity to lay claim to a mate that had been under his nose for years.  Jordan's scent called to both the man and the animal, and he was done fighting the call of the beast.  It was time to mark his mate.

Mission: Survive an Alpha

When a good intention creates a problem for the Wolfe family, Jordan finds herself being stalked by a woman intent on claiming Aric as her own.  Battle lines will be drawn, love will be put to the test, and Aric will have to fight Jordan's strong personality to keep her alive.  Two alpha hearts seeking control will either find the balance or risk losing their love forever.

Mature reader warning: Adult content including but not limited to: Violence and raw sexual language and actions.

***INCLUDES: Bonus short (A Hero Scarred) from Milly writing as April Angel


In a world where werewolves and vampires are common knowledge, Jordan Alvarez, a human orphaned at 13, met Ellie Wolfe at school.  She has had a crush on her best friend's big brother, an alpha, since the first day they met.  Jordan is writing a family history for the Wolfes and spends a night on the mountainside to watch a mating ritual for the pack so that it can be included in the history.  When sexy Aric finds her hiding in the trees with another wolf threatening her, he steps in to protect her from the visiting stranger.  He claims her as his own, but can he keep her safe?

Favorite line:  "I'm not some little woman to stay barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen while the big sexy man takes care of business."  He grinned.  "You think I'm sexy?"

This is the first in the new Sassy Mates series and cannot wait to read the books for the three other brothers who make up "the sexy four" and Ellie's destined mate.  I absolutely loved this book.  The sex is steaming hot.  Their passion is tender and possessive.  Their love is complete and fulfilling.  Ms. Taiden had me laughing so hard my husband started muttering about straightjackets, again! I laughed, swooned, and had to fan myself, many times during this tale.

The theme is that sometimes the best part of your family is the part you choose to include in your heart.  It takes Jordan a while to get it, but that realization is the fulfillment of the dreams she didn't even voice to herself.
