Review ~ Heart Mates by Mary Hughes

 Witch plus wolf? They’re allergic. Except no one told their hearts.

Shifters and witches? Forbidden on pain of death. Might as well stick a fork in a light socket. Yet those are the kind of sparks witch princess Sophia Blue feels when she meets wolf shifter Noah in her aunt’s bookstore.

But Sophia is stuck. Her aunt is missing and Noah, the last person to see her, is Sophia’s only hope. If not for that and her aunt’s new, cute little doggie, Sophia would run as far as she could from the sexy, hard-hewn alpha.

Noah’s stuck too. Before disappearing, the aunt hit him with a hex gone horribly wrong—he’s the doggie. By day he’s fifteen pounds of yippity-yip, and with five anti-alpha wolves nipping at his heels, that’s deadly dangerous. Only Sophia can help him, but she has lost her magic.

Then an evil mage from Sophia’s past shows up with murder on his mind, and all Noah’s instincts shout to protect the woman his misguided heart thinks is his mate.

Warning: Sinfully sexy alpha thrown together with a hot witch in a small town. Sass, sparkle, a meddling aunt, snafus, growling, fighting, and oh yeah, sex. Might want to get up to date on your shots.

About this author


As a girl, I spun romantic, happily-ever-after stories to get to sleep. A husband, family, two degrees, and a blackbelt later, I'm delighted to spin them for readers.

I've lived with love and loss, in bright times and dark, and learned we can all use a break from reality now and then.

So join me for action, sparkling wit and red-hot love. Strong men. Stronger women.

 My Thoughts:

Heart Mates was cute, suspenseful, and full of adventure.

Sophia was a witch who didn't practice because of something that happened in her past. She was disillusioned by a man and ended up hurting someone. 

She went looking for her Aunt when she was unable to get ahold of her. At her Aunt's store she found the signs of a break in and a new doggie instead. While trying to piece the mystery together, she gets a phone call informing her that the Alpha of the local werewolf pack had been helping her aunt and is now also missing. 

When Noah, the missing Alpha, turns up it leads to flying sparks, instant attraction which they both fight, and more questions.

In Heart mates there was furbidden love between a witch princess and an Alpha wolf shifter, creepy warlocks, bad news wolves, a missing Auntie, a cute doggie, and a plot that will keep you page turning.

I laughed quite a bit. I enjoyed it thoroughly and I hope to see more from this author soon!

I received a copy from NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.
