Fated Mates by Lilli Carlisle

Fated Mates Book 1
by Lilli Carlisle
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Caged her whole life, Raz escapes only to find herself caught in a tender trap created by the Alpha and Beta of the North Woods pack.

If only Raz had kept running, she wouldn't have wound up on wolf pack lands putting herself in double danger. A three-hundred pound Bengal tiger shifter, Raz had been caged for as long as she can remember; tortured, beaten and used for sport. Finally, she's escaped, but the hunters are hot on her heels, and she's racing against time. When she heard the wolf pups' cries, Raz couldn't help herself; she went to their rescue even knowing that her trespass could mean her life. Now she's wedged between the Alpha and Beta of the North Woods pack, and they're insisting she's their True Mate.

The desperate cries of wolf pups echoed through the forest around Raz—terrified shifter wolf pups. Raz scented she was on pack land, but she had no choice, she had to get away from the men hunting her. Sure, she may be a three-hundred pound Bengal tiger shifter, but they had guns.

Claws helped up close, but on way too many occasions she’d seen that bullets always won.
It seemed she had run from her hell right into someone else’s, if the sounds of those cries
were any indication. Razelle had hoped to be well out of the wolf shifters’ territory long before she was scented. She didn’t have permission to be on their lands, and death was typically the result of such a trespass—or so it had been explained to her.

Great, just friggin’ wonderful. Not only will I be strung up, I might be left for the hunters to find and skin.

The pups’ cries grew louder, and she knew she had to answer their calls for help—hell, they
were only pups. Razelle’s conscience always got her into trouble. After all, wasn’t that why
those damn hunters were tracking her even now? She was never going back into a cage; she would sooner die. Changing direction easily as her four-inch claws dug into the damp forest floor, she sensed the pups were over the next ridge.

Using her large padded feet, silently she stalked up to the edge of the small ridge overlooking a ravine, and when she peered over, her breath froze in her lungs. Two wolf shifter pups were cornered against a wall of jagged rocks by four hyena shifters who were nipping at the pups.

Razelle could scent and see traces of blood on the pups’ fur. Bastards.

Anger like nothing she had ever experienced raced through her, and that was saying a lot
considering she had spent most of her life in a cage, tortured and abused at the hands of her captors. How dare those mangy hyenas attack defenseless pups? Before she had a chance to think it through, Razelle raced down the slope toward the hyenas. She let out a mighty roar and dove at the closest attacker, ripping her claws across the hyena’s side and onto its chest, easily sending him flying away from the pups. The other three hyenas quickly backed away as she placed her mighty body in front of the pups.

Raz let out another angry roar that echoed through the forest before she slowly backed up,
ushering the two pups closer together, making it easier for her to protect them. She scanned the area for an escape route, but she could only carry one pup in her mouth, and she wasn’t about to leave one behind, so she was going to have to fight her way out of this one. Though she despised fighting, it didn’t mean she couldn’t, and she always had plan B, the escape plan. But by the look of pure hatred coming off the hyena shifters, plan B was so not happening.

Fated Mates Book 2

There’s a war coming in the shifter world, a tear in the veil that separates good and evil, and the reincarnation of ancient goddesses heralds the preparations for the battles ahead. Rose, a wolf shifter, whose birth pack nearly killed her, has found contentment as a member of a loving pack, and that has been enough. When she meets the Alpha and Beta of a neighboring bear clan and learns these men are her fated mates, her life changes in ways she never could have dreamed.


Brothers Mason and Riker Porda became the Alpha and Beta of their clan when their parents were slaughtered, and their lives have been a struggle ever since. While bolstering the health and safety of their clan is their life’s work, their hearts are sad and empty...until Rose. Their mate is everything they thought they’d never have, and when the threat of collector demons returning to earth invades the shifter world, the brothers learn Rose is so much more than their mate, she’s the reincarnation of the Goddess Thorne, the Huntress.

Mason scanned the room and Riker checked her over before pulling her blanket up to her
chin. “We’re glad you’re awake. We’ve been so worried,” he said in a rush as he leaned over the bed blocking the light with his big body.

Male bear shifters tended to be large even in their human form. They were over seven feet
tall and weighed around two hundred and seventy-five pounds. From what she could see, it was all muscle. She was enjoying the view, but her bladder was making its demand clear. She had to suck it up, no matter how embarrassing this was.

“I need to go to the bathroom,” Rose mumbled. “I can’t seem to move.”

Mason and Riker looked at each other, and as she watched their silent communication, she
marveled at the brothers’ resemblance. Both had sandy blond hair—though Riker’s reached his shoulders while Mason’s was cut short—wide-set eyes that were rich amber when in their human forms, strong jaws and delicious full lips. Both men had a patch of golden chest hair peeking out from their shirt collars, and both were sculpted like Greek statues. Sure, she’d seen Mason naked when he shifted, but she had been bleeding to death at the time and had been a bit distracted.

“I’ll carry you to the bathroom, but it’s still going to hurt. Maybe we can get Doc in here to
give you something to ease the pain,” Mason offered.

She could see the worry in his eyes but she’d waited too long already and couldn’t take the
pressure any longer. “No time. Gotta go…now,” Rose begged as she began pushing herself up. The pain was instantaneous and caused her head to spin, but she wasn’t going to pee the bed.

Mason moved quickly, reached down and slid his big arms underneath her back and knees.
“Easy there, hon. I’ve got you.”

She couldn’t help her cry of pain, but being surrounded by her these bears and their heavenly scent of forest after a rain helped soothe her. Mason’s scent held something a little different, a spice of some sort she couldn’t place. It didn’t matter what it was, all that was important right now was it helped her pain subside.
