Welcome to my tour stop for McQuade: The Lone Wolf Takes a Mate by Lynn Richards. I have a review to share so stick around!
What a cover right??
McQuade Jenner was a lone wolf.
He didn’t need some antiquated idea of one mate for life messing up his perfect bachelor lifestyle. On any given night he could find a biker groupie–human or shifter–reckless enough for a one-time fling with a wolf. He could bed a woman when he felt the need and go home to the solitude he enjoyed. And that’s exactly what he’d intended to do the night Rose Spencer walked into his life–alone, wet, and trouble just waiting to happen. He’d never intended to get involved with the innocent Rose–she was a life-time commitment and McQuade didn’t do commitment. But what was a wolf protector supposed to do when the woman his wolf wanted was threatened by a low-life lion shifter?
Rose Spencer wasn’t the bar-scene type. She’d never have stepped foot inside the shifter bar unless she’d been trying to protect her sister–again. When would she learn that Alice was quite capable of taking care of herself–and that she was the one suddenly in need of protection?
This is a title intended for mature audiences only.
5.0 out of 5 stars for McQuade on Amazon.com

My Rating: 4.5 bookworms
McQuade is your typical werewolf. possessive, hot, and oh so irresistible. Rose is the complete opposite. She let’s her older sister walk all over her. Works herself to the bone, doesn’t feel that she is in the least bit attractive and was not prepared for the onslaught of lust when she walked into a shifter bar after her car gave out on her.
I loved the tension between the two mc’s. McQaude is not in the least bit ready to settle down but he has to fight his wolf all the way when it comes to Rose. Rose is absolutely crazy about this man but keeps on thinking that she isn’t good enough for him thanks to his ever so thoughtless rebuffs. It is a story that has been done before. We all know the about the girl with image issues and the sexy man that brings her inner beauty out. But this one was written so artfully that I forgave the cliché.
Both characters were really well rounded and very much immersed in each other. The supporting cast added a colourful feel to the book that would have otherwise left it lacklustre and unimpressive. The possessive wolf taking claim to his mate made it the ultimate Christmas read.
All in all a great read that I would recommend to all shifter lovers, romance lovers and erotic lovers.
Like what you read so far? Check out this excerpt:
Rose realized she’d made a grave mistake the moment she’d opened the bar’s metal door. Inside were roughly fifty men, and a handful of women. And not one of them was Alice. Why did that not surprise her? She’d probably already found a ride home, having hooked up with some other loser. Who else would she find in a biker bar?
Rose knew how to size up people, especially men. As an emergency room nurse, she’d learned that lesson quickly. Some of the men in the bar were humans but most were shifters. They were all big, bad men. And not in a sexy way. Well, maybe one of them was. The one lounging in a chair toward the back was quite possibly the handsomest man she’d ever seen—a ten in a room full of zeroes. He was smokin’ hot. The quick glance she’d had of his chiseled face and muscular arms had almost made her lose her breath. Everything about him was dark–from his hair and skin to his shirt and jeans. Not to mention the aura surrounding him. He was the epitome of tall, dark and handsome… to say nothing of dangerous.
Immediately her mind went there, wondering how all that testosterone would feel unleashed on her. She wasn’t very experienced but she wouldn’t even mind if he liked it a little rough. The thought of what else he might like sexually had her panties soaked in seconds.
