This book is a great twist on a shifter story. Shifter Mate Magic is the first book in the Ice Age Shifters series by Carol Van Natta. This is my first book by Ms. Van Natta, and I am happy to say that it definitely won’t be the last. It is a spellbinding paranormal romance, with an insta-love, shifters, magic, witches, fairies, elves, wizards, drama, tension, and a lot of other mystical creatures….
Jackie Breton is on the run, having escaped from a very violent shifter pack- who want her back, dead or alive. They will be tracking her down and Jackie can’t afford to get caught. She has a lot to protect, not just her life, but the life of her unborn baby. You see Jackie, is pregnant. When she runs into trouble at a truck stop, a handsome stranger comes to her rescue. He leaves an impression on her, but she can’t allow herself to be drawn to him, or to ever trust him after she realises he’s a shifter. She’s had it with shifters, they only spell trouble- so she leaves him and the truck stop behind. But not long after, he once again helps her out of a difficult situation and promises to take her to a safe haven.
Trevor Hammond has worked hard to build his independent trucking business. He’s certainly one-of-a-kind… but very lonely. He has lost hope of ever finding his mate, so he’s completely unprepared when he bumps into her at a truck stop. He can tell she was in trouble and he really wanted to help- but it was also very obvious that she didn’t like or trust shifters. When trouble strikes, he leaps in to protect her- determined to do whatever it takes to keep her safe. When he receives a warning from a trusted source, he has no choice but to whisk Jackie to the safety of the sanctuary town of Kotoyeeesinay, high in the Rocky Mountains. This becomes a race against time, as danger closes in on them. Will they reach the safe haven in time? This story really held my attention from beginning to end, as I raced through the pages to discover what would happen to Jackie and Trevor.
This is a very quick and easy read. It has a fast pace and a smooth flow. I really enjoyed the authors rich, warm and romantic style. The story is emotional, and heart-warming. Her characters are wonderful, fully developed individuals who are very endearing- I quickly became invested in them and the outcome of their story, rooting for them the whole way through. This is a superb start to what is shaping up to be a brilliant series. Now I will be exploring all the other books she’s released to date…. And I can’t wait to dive into “Shift of Destiny”, the second book in the Ice Age Shifters series.
Thank you, Ms. Van Natta!
