She wasn’t ready to lead…

Chosen as the Guardian of her Montana Shiftertown, wolf Shifter Rae Lyall is facing opposition—for no woman has ever been selected for this powerful position. Still adjusting to the new authority thrust upon her, Rae travels to train with Zander Moncrieff, a Shifter healer, tasked with teaching her about her new role and its responsibilities.

He wasn’t ready to love…

A polar bear Shifter, Zander wears no Collar and follows no rules but his own. Rae finds him arrogant and demanding, yet compelling and intriguing. Zander has no wish to mate but the sassy Guardian is drawing him out of his shell, stirring feelings long suppressed. And when a new threat looms over Rae’s home, she and Zander must race to the rescue, forced closer to danger…and to each other.

I only have one issue with Guardian’s Mate – it is just not long enough! Of course I also feel that way about every book I read by Jennifer Ashley. Her books have a way of sweeping you away into a new world, one you wish that you were really a part of.

Wolf Shifter Rae Lyall is an orphan and now she has been chosen as the first ever female Guardian. A lot of shifters think it is a trick and don’t believe she was really chosen so her adopted father takes her to the craziest polar bear shifter that has ever lived. This shifter named Alexander Johansson Moncrieff (but is called Zander by all who know him) is a special shifter. he has been blessed with the gift of healing.

When these two unique shifter get together an adventure for them both truly begins. Will they be able to survive and see where their feelings for each other take them…

Guardian’s Mate is the ninth book in the Shifters Unbound series by Jennifer Ashley. I have a hard time saying that it can be a stand alone book. You would get so much more enjoyment out of it if you read this series in order. This is one of my favorite series and I am already looking forward to the next book titled Red Wolf coming out April of next year.
