Part Two (of Three)
As Ashley settles in to her life at the lodge, she meets more of her new pack mates–including wicked, intense Jud. His touch arouses her hunger–and Blake’s possessiveness. Lucas, the unyielding alpha, grows concerned with the attachment between Blake and Ashley and sends Blake out on a mission.
While Blake is away, Ashley meets the most elusive member of her new pack—the enigmatic Connor, a hacker who, like her, was raised among humans. For Connor, sex is volatile—dangerous—and being near Ashley draws out the feral edge of the wolf inside him. As Ashley’s connection with Blake–and with Lucas—grows deeper, an outside force threatens the peace of the Last River pack.
Protecting Their Mate was originally published as an eight part serial under the penname Mia Thorne. It has been repackaged, but the story remains the same.

Ginny Lurcock’s Thoughts: No. I’m crying. Go away and come back later.
WAIT! don’t leave me alone with my feelings…
Just as well written as part one, part two takes us further on Blake and Ashley’s journey. She’s settling into her place in the pack, learning about being a wolf and the desires that go along with it. He’s… being a moody bastard because he wants but wants to do what’s right.
Their chemistry is amazing, and in under 100 pages we get so much more.
Including Connor. And Connor’s pain. And his inability to trust in Mac’s promises. And…
Fuck, now I’m crying again.
A great addition to the series and I cannot wait to read the third. Which I’m going to do. Now.
