The scars on Ellie Padget's cheek are a constant reminder of the times she tried to escape from sexual slavery. Two years ago, Joel--alpha in waiting of the Tundra-Tough pack--led the rescue party that freed her. She's loved him ever since.
Their relationship finally explodes into steaming sex, but he offers to pay her off. She walks away with her head high and her heart shattered. When she learns of a plot to destroy Joel and his pack, her only option is return to his side and warn him.
Joel has to fight to retain the pack that should be his by right, and no one can leave until the pack has a new alpha. He's horrified when Ellie turns up on the night he's to meet the woman he's agreed to marry but never met. She's stuck there until he claims his birthright. Finally, he realizes Ellie's his true mate. Now he has to choose between his arranged marriage, and the one woman he truly loves. Will he choose with his head or his heart?
To Mate a Werewolf is a stand alone story within the Scattered Siblings series.

How did I miss this delicious third book in the Scattered Sibling series? This can be read as a standalone or out of order.
Ellie is a half-breed elf who has been dealt a bad hand. Her life sucks with a deadbeat missing father and a drunken dead mother, what else could happen? Right, she is kidnapped into a magical land where supernaturals exist. Unfortunately for Ellie, she is forced to be a sex slave to abusive elves. When she is finally saved by a squad of werewolves, life takes a little bit of a positive upturn.
For those who have been following this world, each of the supernatural groups tend to be a bit judgmental when it comes to who gets to mate with whom. Not all, just a few have hang ups with not being "purebred". Joel is one such werewolf. He is a jerk. Seriously, I did not like Joel and want to smack him upside the head several times. And I wanted to bop him on the nose when he changes to wolf form. This guy is the proverbial clueless and careless male. The emotional pain he causes Ellie is just uncalled for and completely unacceptable. He is not worthy of a mate like Ellie.
I really liked Ellie. She is a woman who does not let her bad experiences beat her down. She is a constant survivor. She is also loyal and ethical. Plus she can throw knives! This is a big plus as I love knives. Usually I run into stories where the female is pathetic and some hunky alpha male wants the female anyway. In this one, it is flipped around with the exception that both characters are attractive. The way that Ellie rises above all of Joel's selfish and foolish decisions is incredible. I'd have already kicked Joel out on his ass.
This story is more than a soul-mating romance. It also contains a bit of suspense when there are three challengers to Joel's right to lead his pack. The quests are fun and added a nice touch to the plot. It helped show Joel as a good guy even if he is the worst soul-mate. The ending came all too swiftly. The big reveal is no secret and easily predicted about Ellie. This paranormal romance is recommended to readers who enjoy an alpha wolf who needs to eat humble pie.

He rescued her from sexual slavery and Ellie Padget's loved him ever since. So when she learns of a plot to destroy Joel and his pack, her only option is return to the side of the man who shattered her heart and warn him in this bewitching Scattered Siblings romance.
Joel has to fight to retain his pack and he's agreed to marry a woman he's never met so he's horrified when Ellie turns up on the night he's to meet the woman. Readers can't help but get caught up in the passion and excitement as Joel realizes what he's almost lost and sets out to win her back. The chemistry is certainly sizzling enough for anyone but Joel is one of those typically clueless men that doesn't take hints very well. This causes quite a bit of gut wrenching emotional turbulence along with some chuckles as Ellie makes him fight to rectify his mistakes. The characters are strong, compelling and draw the readers into this fast paced and smooth flowing plot full of suspense, excitement and romance.
Intriguing events catch hold of readers with a scorching scene that ends in an emotionally challenging one. From there, the challenges doesn't stop, not only in the romance department but in the rest of Joel and Ellie's lives as well, especially as Joel must compete with the other challengers for the role of Alpha and the challenges are set by King Caleb (To Wed a Werewolf). But not all is as it seems because someone is out to destroy the pack which adds lots of excitement to the story.
The well written scenes easily capture the imagination and transport readers to another world. I couldn't help but be captivated by Ellie as she certainly made Joel work hard after his royal screw-up and I am looking forward to finding out what happens next in the Scattered Siblings world.
