This book is the sequel to Runaways.
As Alpha, Roul Verlaine always looked out for his twin. When Ranulf flees to New York City with his new mates, Roul hires the Watcher Agency to check on him. All thoughts of his brother vanish when Roul meets the sexy owner of Watchers. Morgan Kale is a rare white werewolf, a lone wolf who sets Roul’s senses on fire. His wolf instantly wants her and Roul can’t resist her. She bests him at chess and martial arts and is the fiercest, most perfect lover he’s ever known. And he doesn’t want to leave her.
Morgan knows instantly she and Roul are mates even if he hasn’t figured it out yet. His seduction overrides her common sense and yearning heart. The sex is mind-blowing and they even get along outside the bedroom. But Roul is in town for only three days, and Morgan must decide whether to tell him they are mates…or let him walk out of her life forever.
Publisher’s Note: This book was previously published but has been significantly revised and expanded from the original.
Mating explains more of the conflict in Runaways, also written by Valentine, which I read at the same time. In this book, Roul comes to New York in search of his twin brother Ranulf, along with Ran’s two new mates. At first, we’re not sure why Roul wants to find them. Does he want to break them up, or bring Ran back to Paris to take up his pack duties, or what?
The investigator Roul hires turns out to be Morgan, also a werewolf, although for some reason Roul doesn’t realize what she is at the beginning. He only knows she’s hot and they spend several days together, looking for his brother.
There are conflicts between them because Morgan doesn’t want to mate with Roul. Her business in New York is successful, and she fears sublimating herself to Roul as her Alpha. She is also an Alpha, although she has no pack, but Alphas don’t usually mate with other Alphas, for obvious reasons.
All’s well that ends well, of course, and love finds a way for both twins. Again, an interesting take on the paranormal, that I enjoyed.
