Rated 3 out of 5 by from To Win a Mate This was a very cute (but very short) novella. Jared is not looking for love or romance we he sets eyes on Elise at an auction. Elise isn't expected to find someone like her - ever. She thinks she's the only werewolf - I found this to be slightly far fetched, but set up the story in a way that really let Jared and Elise bond quickly. This is an important thing in a short novella. Short - maybe too short. Things moved super fast and while both characters were cute, I really didn't have a chance to fall in love with them. I liked them, they had depth, and they both grew and developed - I just wanted to feel more from them. The ending was very sweet and I hope we get a chance to see the couple in the next book. I'd love to get to know them a little better - they sound like they would be a ton of fun. *This book was received in exchange for an honest review*

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dinner or a lifetime? The VonBrandts strike again. When Jared goes off to New Orleans on one of his many appearances at charity functions across the country he has no intention other than to spend an enjoyable evening eating an exceptional dinner and perhaps pick up a painting for his alpha’s wife, Tonya. Well that and make sure a decent amount spent in the support of cancer research. What he didn’t expect was to get into a bidding war with a total sleazeball over a woman… a werewolf at that, one that has his wolf standing up and taking notice. Thirty thousand dollars for a single date, but boy wasn’t she a beauty. Elise Blanchard is an administrative assistant for the company owned by the very sleazeball bidding on her. She was the last minute replacement for one of the local debutantes that had volunteered to be auctioned off. Elise is also a werewolf and as far as she knows, she is the only one in existence. Imagine her surprise when she gets a whiff of Jared. Not the least bit surprising, Elise has just a few questions in spite of the sparks that are flying hot and heavy between them. Questions like… where did she come from? Who were her parents? Are there more of them?… Some questions which might never be answered. Elise and Jared’s connection is fast and the courting all too short. Regardless, this is the mating of two souls made for each other. If you are looking for a short, satisfying paranormal romance, then To Win A Mate will surely meet your needs. I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.

He goes to a charity in New Orleans he just plans on trying to buy a picture for his sister-in-law Tonya. He ends up bidding on a date with a young shifter women because the man sitting at the table with him was giving him slimy vibes and he was trying to save her. Miss Elise Blanchard is a very lovely administrative assistant who is asked to go up for bid for a date at a charity event because one of the four young ladies could not make it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Winning more than an auction... I received an ARC from the author, in exchange for an honest review. What an amazing story 'To Win a Mate' was, I started reading it & soon found myself at the send. I was so enthralled with the story that it was over too soon. I highly recommend that you read the "Somewhere, TX: VonBrandt Family" series in order, you don't have to, but it makes everything better if you do. Jared isn't looking for a mate, but attending a charity auction away from home, Jared captures a scent & soon finds out who it belongs to. Elise has never smelt another wolf before, she's always been alone, keeping her wolf a secret.... Just the start of the story was enough to draw me in & then you keep reading, enthralled for the duration of the entire story. I'm hoping this isn't the end of the "VonBrandt Family"... I want more.
