Publisher's Summary

New York Times and USA Today best-selling author of science fiction, urban fantasy, and paranormal romance brings another action-, adventure-, and suspense-filled story to transport listeners out of this world.

Prince Viper d'Rojah, a warrior from the Sarafin cat shifter species, is not happy when he is sent on a special mission by his older brother, Vox, King of the Sarafin. The mission is to deliver important documents to the human authorities before kidnapping the sister and grandmother of Vox's mate, Riley. He has handled tougher assignments in his sleep and just wants to get back to finding the traitors trying to kill him and his family!

Tina St. Claire was finally happy with her life until her big sister, Riley, suddenly disappeared. Even Grandma Pearl suspected that Riley's ex-employer was hiding something. Determined to find Riley, Tina's research unwittingly leads the danger to her and Grandma Pearl. The unexpected arrival of a strange man causes things to go from bad to worse when he gives her and Grandma Pearl a packet of material he claims is from Riley. Riley had warned Viper that neither her sister nor Grandma Pearl would willingly come with him. Viper couldn't care less whether the females wanted to come or not; he had never failed a mission and wasn't about to start now.

Viper soon discovers this mission has turned into the most important one of his life when both he and his cat recognize that Tina is their mate. Now, he has to keep Tina and her gun-toting grandmother alive. The question is, who is going to save him when both women discover his plans to kidnap them?

VIPER'S LIFE AFTER TINA & GRANDMA PEARL!

Would you listen to Viper’s Defiant Mate again? Why?

Yes. I always listen to good stories more than once, twice - well many times! Especially when they have great characters, strongminded women and of course lots of funny moments. Poor Viper, but he was awarded with happiness in the end.

What did you like best about this story?

All the inter-action with the many secondary characters. Grandma Pearl is not as funny as Riley, but she rates right up there.

Which character – as performed by David Brenin – was your favorite?

Sorry - can't pick just one. David Brenin is the MAN! I could listen to him anytime anywhere - even if he was reciting the dictionary. B. J. Harrison (another narrator) is almost as good as David.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Ah, laughter mostly.

Any additional comments?

Good Job Susan.

3.5 Viper's Defiant Mate Stars


So this is book 2, and it’s the same world as the first, only it’s with Vox and Riley’s siblings.

I have to say I loved Viper and Tina’s story but I kinda liked Riley and Vox just a little bit more.

Oh does Tina put Viper though his passes.. It was hella funny and sweet how hard he fights to show her he wants her.

I love that he has to win over their grandmother as well. That was kinda sweet.

These females really don’t make it easy on a guy but what I love is that both males, really don’t give up. When they found there mates they did anything and everything to be with them and show them they are it for each other.

Swoony right! I know.
Great book, wonderful series, and the narrator awesome.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

I enjoyed the second chapter

I enjoyed this book but felt the end was rushed. I think it needed another chapter to flow better.

Great book

I loved this book ! I'm hoping there are more in this series ! Tina and Viper's love story was great . I loved the way Tina was not letting anyone put her down not even if it was to protect her lol . Viper has met his match in Tina . Now there should be a book about Pearl ( grams is such an awesome person ) she'd make a great mate to some aging warrior 😉!

David does the job again

Viper had his hands full. Adventure was not his friend and Earth women are not docile little creatures. Tina was more powerful t h an she knew Grandma Pearl was a treasure. I want a grandma like her.

Loved the characters. The connections. The possible future stories.

I was expecting more from Vipers story but still enjoyed the flow There was just too much of the action going down on Earth. I did find it all intriguing but not enough of the other worldly. Narration excellent as usual.
