Oh my gosh, this was a great story. I liked it best of all the Mates collection. Yoram was a doll from the time we first meet him at seven years old when he, in turn, sees Salvatore Rossi for the first time, to the time he’s a mature Alpha leader of the Miancarn Pack and he finally gets to claim his true mate. ... I love the author’s ability to write first-time sex scenes and to infuse innocence in an otherwise worldly character, and Cardeno C does it extremely well in this story. ...If you’ve read any of the previous stories, you’ll have a chance to get an update on those characters as well, but if you haven’t, you can still read this one. Just know that when you finish, you’re going to want to go back and get the others in the series. Overall, though, if you are a lover of shifter stories and don’t mind a little vampire mixed in, this one is a great story to pick up.

Hearts on Fire

I found myself loving this short tale of two very different men who worked so well together. They had great chemistry and were hot together.

McFarland’s Farm by Cardeno C. was a total feel-good story. I loved it from the moment I was introduced to the spoiled rich kid and to the pensive, yet friendly farmer. Cardeno C. has a style of writing that makes you fall in love with her characters and keeps you coming back for more. 

Dark Divas Reviews

Their story was a give and take, when one needed the other was there and vice versa. I loved seeing how open and honest Abe was and how willing he was to do things just because he was trusting his gut. Jason never knew what hit him. He saw someone he wanted and went after him even though he didn't understand his reasoning at the time. He didn't hide away from his wants and he too trusted his gut to know what he wanted. Great Read!
