Publisher's Summary

True Mate is the first book in the Prosper Woods Chronicles, but don't miss True Knight, the incredible prequel to the series!

When I moved to Prosper Woods, California, a couple of weeks ago, I’d had big plans for a quiet life. Let’s just say, things haven’t exactly turned out the way I expected they would. For one thing, as new sheriff, I hadn’t planned on investigating a murder the day after my arrival. For another thing, no one told me supernatural creatures existed. I didn’t believe it at first, but when Vincent Lasco suddenly smiled at me with a mouth full of fangs, things got interesting.

Quiet small-town life indeed!

The moment I decided to take Sheriff Romeo Harmon home for a roll in the sheets, I knew hiding my true nature was a huge mistake. Then again, things never turn out the way I expect. The simple life of anonymity I’d hoped to have in Prosper Woods has blown up in my face in the most poetic and spectacular way. Not only that, the guy isn’t even aware that he has secrets of his own. How a guy could have lived all his life not knowing what he was, seems nearly impossible but in his case, I know it’s true.

Supernaturals are everywhere!

The town of Prosper Woods has a couple of new residents who at first glance, seem very unsuited for small town life. Before long though, I realized they were right for the town...probably the only right thing about this weird place. Surprisingly, they fit right in.

Things are about to get interesting!

True Hit!!!

We're picking up right where True Knight left us, so it's Vincent and Romeo and their inarguable chemistry right off the bat. The way Patricia wrote these two, it reminds me so much of Jarrett and Thayne, the bond between them palpable between pages.

It's a treat seeing Romeo grow into his new life in Prosper Woods, he's navigating life as a powerful & rare shifter along with his duties and responsibilities as a new sheriff in the supernatural-filled town. Not only that, he's also hopelessly irrefutably in love with his lover, Vincent - a warrior vampire. Vincent patiently guides Romeo in mastering his new-found powers and shifter abilities. While the threat that is Floyd, the Alpha of the werewolf pack, is hanging over Romeo and Vincent's heads, another threat waltzes in. More vampires - vicious and so unlike Vincent.

This book contains a lot of heat, because Romeo and Vincent, it also contains dramatic confrontations, an awesome fight scene, and some ghostly activities. Things are sure getting interesting in Prosper Woods, events are unfolding, things are evolving.

We also get to know more about the residents of Prosper Woods, specially the characters we met in True Knight. I love that Patricia gave us her signature character cameos but with a humorous twist, it left me questioning "was that really THEM?".

You know it's a great book when you don't want it to end. That pretty much sums up this audiobook. I want more. Between Patricia Logan's amazing storytelling, dynamic and colorful characters and epic world-building, making us all want to move to Prospect Woods plus John Solo's masterful narration, we are all left wanting for more of this series and it couldn't come soon enough!

Patricia Logan cant write these books fast enough!

Patricia Logan sure knows how to get a reader thoroughly hooked! With an absolutely brilliant start to the Prosper Woods Chronicles in the form of 'True Knight', the writer keeps us wanting more with 'True Mate'--the official first book of the series. Brilliantly narrated by John Solo, I was delighted to revisit this incredible world where shifters of every kind exist. There are new characters on the scene and new revelations from old friends. We have the absolute joy of seeing Sheriff Romeo Harmon grow into his powers as he is advised by his vampire lover Vincent Lasco. It's delightful to see their relationship grow and their love blossom. The sheriff's shocking realization of the supernatural beings that call Prosper Woods home is second only to his mortification that everyone knows 1) what kind of being he is and 2) that he is intimately involved with the male vampire Vincent Lasco! I find it HILARIOUS!!! But Romeo and Vincent have more to worry about and manage than small-town gossip. The local wolf pack's leader is dangerous as all hell and a group of very old vampires has decided to visit Vincent at Prosper Woods to claim something they shouldn't have! Ms. Logan is an especially clever writer in keeping her readers engaged without boredom, too much drama, or an over-emphasis on sexual intimacy. This story, like so much of her other work, is well balanced for the sub-genre. In this particular work, there is an amazing blend of scenes: we get an exciting thrill, then a warmly tender moment, then an incredible reveal, etc. She's also good at ensuring a resolution to a sub-plot or two after scaring us silly with the introduction of another mind-blowing sub-plot. It's all so good, it positively wicked! Darn her! 😁 I can't wait for the next book of this terrific series!

True mate

I love getting more of Romeo and Vincent. The multiple PoVs help to understand the different characters so much more and why they make the choices they do. Vincent ends up having to make a huge decision rashly some he doesn’t have time to do anything else. And Rom and him have to work through the new restrictions. I really loved the characters and can’t wait to find out what else is in store for our characters. Some of the side characters are having some great character development along with our amazing main characters.

I didn't want to stop listening!

This book picks up pretty much after the events of the prequel True Knight. Sheriff Romeo is a unicorn shifter trying to figure out how to use his newfound powers with the help of his vampire lover Vincent. While things are still tense with the local werewolf pack, the remains of the old sheriff are found. Then Vincent gets a threat from some vampires from his past causing him to make a pretty huge decision. Ghosts are popping up now too. Never a dull day in Prosper Woods. I didn't want to stop listening this was so much fun. There are tons of surprising revelations and action, in and out of the bedroom. John Solo is truly a treasure. His ability to bring life to each character is incredible.

Bloody Marvelous, loved it!

The cheeky and steamy performance by John Solo fulfilled my prediction of the start of a stunningly enjoyable paranormal series; Prosper Woods Chronicles by the crafty Patricia Logan. My expectation of a novel filled with humor and originality was fulfilled many times over. So many characters, each with their own personality that matches a shifter animal. Absolutely bloody stunning!

The dramatic confrontational scenes and the conflict within the local werewolves pack, plus the introduction of unseen spiritual forces, a little boy called Blue, helped to keep the plot interesting which created a captivating synopsis. This narrator is a master of pacing and dramatic flair, he will carry listeners through the many layers of this story, while it feels like you are sitting in a movie theatre, eating popcorn, and watching a paranormal rom-com with a boisterous crowd.

I absolutely recommend this series. The characters are vibrant and it’s uniquely smartly plotted.
Happy Listening

a sheriff and his vampire

True Mate is Book 1 in the Prosper Woods Chronicles series and continues the story, from the prequel, of Sheriff Romeo and vampire Vincent. Because of a mishap with some sacred books Vincent connects himself to Rom and the surrounding area. I really enjoyed the beginning of each chapter with the letters to the editor. It's like the humans are seeing things the shifters are doing and not knowing that they're shifters. There is so much going on in this small town. Werewolves causing problems, even within their own pack, a ghost boy showing himself to Vincent needing help, and a mysterious death that needs looking into.
Narrator John Solo does another fabulous job in this series.

A vampire, a unicorn, a witch, and a couple of werewolves walk into a bar

While True Knight is listed merely as a prequel and not part of the linked series, I think reading/listening to it is necessary to understand the characters, relationships, and events leading up to this book. Prosper Woods is a fascinating place, filled with so many different characters. The mysteries, both small and large, as well as the confrontations with Floyd and the other vampires fuel this story. I would have liked a bit more romance, but Romeo and Vincent still manage to have some tender moments plus hot scenes to cover part of that. While one plot thread is wrapped up, several more are left open, presumably for later installments of what is proving to be a true serial and not a series of standalones. John Solo does a fantastic job narrating this book to the point where the listening to the audiobook is more fulfilling than reading it.

Pretty good story and narration

I have already read almost everything by Patricia Logan and listened to some audio books and therefore I was very curious about "True Mate".
Although I have not yet listened to "True Knight", but I will catch up as soon as possible.

Patricia Logan has a great writing style, as it is very captivating and entertaining.

I really liked the story of Romeo and Vincent, I liked both characters from the beginning. However, there are other secondary characters that are also very likable.
Romeo is the new sheriff in the small town of Prosper Woods, which reveals some incredible things. He falls in love with Vincent, a vampire, and he's not the only supernatural being in town.
While Romeo is still learning to deal with his abilities, it's not just one threat that builds.

The book has everything a good book needs: suspense, action, fight scenes, drama, a bit of supernatural, and heat and romance. You can practically feel the attraction between Romeo and Vincent.
Patricia Logan knows how to totally captivate her readers. I want more and am now eagerly awaiting the next audiobook in this series!

John Solo did a great job bringing the characters to life. I really liked his way of reading the story and finding a distinct voice for each character. He also has a great sense of drama and always has the right pace while reading.

True Mate is stunning and absolutely recommended!

Really good!

4.25 Stars!

First things first, you definitely need to read, or better yet, listen to True Knight before reading True Mate. 

I really enjoyed the continuation of Rome and Vincent's story. They are very well-suited for one another and I'm really liking how they're settling in as a couple. I also liked seeing how Rome is in better control of his 'powers' now. 

Also, you need to know that even if the book ends in a HFN, there's a bit of a cliffhanger, or rather, several issues that were left unresolved, which was a bit disappointing. I really liked that we got to see Greg come into his own and I hope we'll get to see more of him and Sam in the next book(s) in the series. 

The audiobook was very enjoyable. John Solo did a great job bringing the characters to life. I think one of my favorite parts of the audiobooks has been Mr. Solo reading the letters that the Prosper Town residents submit to the paper, it's so much fun!

Overall, the book was interesting, fast-paced, intriguing, and I'm already looking forward to more. I have no trouble recommending it.

The Sheriff and his Vampire True Mate

So, this first full book in Patricia Logan's new Paranormal Romance series did not disappoint. This is a great next step in her brand new series Prosper Woods Chronicles.
My favourite part is still the letters to the editor at the beginning of each chapter...totally hilarious!
John Solo does a great job of bringing this cast of diverse characters to life. So many different shifters and other magical or other paranormal type creatures!
I can't wait for the next one! Highly recommended Paranormal MM Romance.

A continuation of the adventure

I’m back in Prosper Woods. Our new sheriff Romeo is investigating a murder and he’s starting to sense there’s something different about his co-workers. Perhaps about most people in town. And then there’s his boyfriend who’s also new in town. A few people have already discerned Vincent’s true nature and to say they’re not happy about it is an understatement.

But this is Prosper Woods where anything can happen.

Things seem fairly normal – or as normal as they can be when surrounded by supes. Romeo has discovered – quite spectacularly – that he’s a supe. His true nature was never revealed when he was a cop in LA but up here in Northern California? Surrounded by all that nature? He’s in the know now.

More characters were properly introduced in this book, and although I love Sally the deputy, it’s Precious who stole my heart. And made me laugh.

I learned that werewolves have to shift during a full moon – something I didn’t know. But I’m still newer in the paranormal realm.

Romeo has his work cut out for him just as Vincent’s past shows up and things get chaotic in his life. There’s plenty of action inside and outside the bedroom and certainly enough to keep my interested. I can’t wait for the conclusion of the series.

John Solo narrates these books and I think he was a great choice to helm this series. Okay, off to the next book.

Book 1 was also read by John Solo! Yay!

Mr Solo is one of my favorite voice actors in the genre and it is always a treat to hear his smooth and charismatic voice reading a interesting book like this one. I enjoyed a lot its dynamic, how fluid and entertaining was the intrícate plot and all the wonderful characters, sweet surprises, heartwarming moments and the original paranormal twists. I recommend to read first the prequel. it helped me a lot to understand the main situations and how the world is built in this series. A great book masterfully narrated! Yay!

Vincent and his mate!

In this first book Vincent and Romeo’s relationship solidified and there are surprises. Romeo is a special one and he finds he is not the only one. New interesting characters appear as the town finds there’s crime around and wolves seem to be involved. Great world building. The Prosper chronicles are an interesting touch. Meanwhile, Vincent and Romeo turn into a power couple.

Enjoyable continuation

First off, you REALLY need to read or listen to the prequel True Knight before you read/listen to True Mate or you will not have all the background for the story and characters.

I really enjoyed this continuation of this series about a town full of paranormal beings. The world-building is fantastic and the characters are great and varied (witches, vampires, werewolves. ghosts, different types of shifters, and others). I liked the different POVs. It’s not just the MCs. There is input from other characters that adds to the overall picture. This is great when there is mystery and secrets/unknowns that haven’t been revealed to all yet. There is a lot going on in this book, and it’s fast-paced and engaging. I can see why the author wrote a separate prequel to provide some of the background. There are still some loose ends at the end of this book, so I am looking forward to he next book in the series.

The narration is good, with distinct voices for the different characters. I love the delivery of the little snippets from the town chronicle.

I received a free copy of this audiobook and am voluntarily leaving this honest review.

I want to listen to more! 😊

True Mate is officially the first book in the Prosper Woods series but there is a fantastic prequel, True Knight, that I highly recommend you listen to or read before this one. True Knight lets you know how the two MCs in this story get together and provides great information about this series.

This story is filled with many different supernatural creatures and lots of surprises. This is an ongoing series so not everything is wrapped up all neat and tidy at the end of this book. I wouldn’t call it a major cliffhanger, though but I certainly want to continue with this series.

Vincent and Romeo get into some tight places in this story. Older and more powerful vamps want something that Vincent has. The werewolves aren’t happy to have a vampire living in their town and they stir up some major trouble.

John Solo, once again, does a fantastic job performing this audiobook. It truly is a pleasure to listen to a good story and have it made that much better by a great audio performance. It looks like there will be at least three more books in this series and I’m looking forward to reading all of them.

A complimentary copy of this audiobook was provided to me at my request but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author and/or narrator.

True Mates

The Story: this one was better for me than the prequel, and it continues not too long after the end of the prequel which you would definitely need to read/listen to before starting this one. The relationship between Rome and Vincent is still going at a rapid speed but it’s good to see how they are doing as a couple. It’s still fun seeing all the different types of shifters and even getting some scenes from other POVs then just the 2 main characters.
Overall while better, it still not attention holding for me (maybe it was all the new releases I’ve been waiting for) but I will continue as I am a bit curious on what snacks and some of my unanswered questions.
