A paranormal category romance from Entangled's Covet imprint...

Good girls shouldn't date bad wolves...

Fated Match has spent centuries pairing supernatural mates together. Witch and matchmaker, Chloe Donovan, takes pride in helping her clients find their happy endings. But when werewolf alpha and millionaire playboy Kieran Clearwater stalks into her office, she may have finally met the one man she can't help.

Kieran has no intention of finding his mate. Love is a weakness he can't afford. But with his pack growing more concerned over his single status he needs to assure them all is well. What better way to do so than to hire a fake girlfriend he can parade around at the annual pack retreat?

Chloe is coerced into becoming the wolf's temporary mate, but she's determined to keep their agreement professional. But her seductive partner in crime has other ideas, and his considerable charm makes it difficult for her to keep her eye on the prize. While these two burn hot when they're together, behind-the-scenes politics work to rip them apart.

When I read what Victoria Davies writes, my heart aches and breath hitches. She has the ability to fill my heart with joy and heartbreak with her words. Ms Davies' writing makes me feel.

This is the third of the Fated Match books I've read in quick succession and I'm once again blown away by it.

Kieran is a super yummy alpha wolf with a mission and he hires Chloe to help him with it. The thing he doesn't realise is this little witch is going to knock his socks off. I loved Kieran. On the one hand, he's commanding, in control and sexy as all get out. On the other hand, he's broken and gun shy of love and relationships. I really don't blame him, considering what happened to him in the past. I loved Kieran's wolf as well. I loved how it knew what it wanted and was pushing Kieran in the right direction, only the man was stubborn and afraid to take a chance. Typical men! :-) In spite of that, when Kieran knew what he wanted, even when things went wrong, true to his nature, he went after what he wanted, and this was Chloe. I love when characters fight for what they want.

Chloe is delightful. She's strong, loving and kind. She sees the good in people and believes everyone deserves a chance ... or two. Chloe's longing for a sense of belonging and someone to belong to tore at my heart. I wanted forever for her, especially when she had fought so hard all her life to find her place in a world of lovers and families, with her always being alone. Kieran puts her through the wringer with his uncertainty and his inability to commit, and even then, she holds her own and maintains her dignity. It really got me mad on behalf of Chloe and I raged at the injustice when someone from Kieran's past comes forward to cause mischief, to manipulate and harm Chloe and Kieran's fragile relationship for her own selfish purposes. Ultimately though, I adore Chloe because she was brave and she chose to fight for what she wanted and that was Kieran and his love. She was the braver one, the bigger one and she was able to stand toe-to-toe with the big bad alpha wolf and be an equal. Well done, Chloe.

I'm thoroughly enjoying this series. I hope there will be other stories from it and I particularly hope to see a story for Vivian.

About the author

authorVictoria Davies's passion for writing started young. Luckily she had a family who encouraged believing in magic and embracing imagination. From stories quickly scribbled in bright pink diaries, her love of storytelling developed. Since then her characters may have evolved and her plots may have grown decidedly more steamy but she never lost her love of the written word. Writing is not only a way to silence the wonderful voices in her head, but it also allows her to share her passions with her readers.
