    Another reread. This was a MFM mate story. Probably more like 3-3.5 Stars now but again, I keep coming back and rereading this series so I'll keep my 4 star rating. Bran and Kate are already mated when Caleb and his two boys come into the picture. Luckily, there is no jealousy and Caleb is accepted right away. He has a dumb male moment but makes it up with a sweet gesture. Another reread. This was a MFM mate story.

When the hyenas return, this time to kidnap their sons, Kate, Caleb, and Bran find themselves questioning the loyalty of the Pack around them and relying on those outside the Pack to keep their sons safe. Kate and Bran were great friends of Rebecca in the first book and I had no idea I am going to have an add to their cute relationship: Caleb a single dad of twin leopards, new in the pack meets his mate, who just happens to have a mate already who is the Alpha. So, the 3 together were not mates but had to work around the fact that they shared Kate. Kate was independent, bossy, sweet, a true Alpha female and managed to hold her ground with the pack and her two mates - eventually. I didn't like the fact that Bran somehow went from the sweet sexy guy, alpha and all to the back story when Caleb was introduced. Caleb became taller, sexier, better overall....At least they worked well to please Kate... Still funny moments, hot guy talking before thinking and Rebecca owning the center stage. Somehow I feel the story takes a turn that I didn't see coming. I am not a MM even MFM books fan and from what I see I am going to get plenty of just that. I hope the story and drama happening Rebecca and the town will be good enough to keep me reading.

    Fab read! Loved the relationship between Bran, Kate and Caleb and I was very pleased to see Rebecca still very much in the mix along with the other town members. Looking forward to Ashby and Gabriel's story. Fab read!

    What a yummy series!! I am really adoring the whole feel of it! My only complaint is the jumpy narrative at times. Either stick with one voice or make it clear who is narrating at all times. It is a minor inconvenience but enough for me to hold back that fifth star. Kate and Bran were awesome in the first book and I loved getting to know them better! Add in Caleb and it is a smoking hot menage with two alpha guys and one with a serious dominate streak in the bedroom!! Kate is independent and can m What a yummy series!! I am really adoring the whole feel of it! My only complaint is the jumpy narrative at times. Either stick with one voice or make it clear who is narrating at all times. It is a minor inconvenience but enough for me to hold back that fifth star. Kate and Bran were awesome in the first book and I loved getting to know them better! Add in Caleb and it is a smoking hot menage with two alpha guys and one with a serious dominate streak in the bedroom!! Kate is independent and can more than hold her own with her two men. We could have had better details in her back story. She was a really kick-a$$ chick and I loved her interactions with everyone in the book. Bran is a little lacking in the back story department as well. He is super hot and sexy and I was all for the whole thing!! Plus he and Caleb bonded super quickly!! Loved their whole dynamic. Caleb is a single dad in a new pack who meets his mate, who just happens to have a mate already who is the Alpha(not a spoiler, that is in the blurb). He is looking to find his place in things and puts his foot in his mouth, but quickly works to amend the situation. Oh, and if this were a straight up BDSM book you would be calling him Master!! Loved the visits with the other characters in town and getting more of their stories!! The side plot with the hyenas was wonderfully paced and engaging! I was on the edge the whole time! Things are really coming to a head and I am eager for the next book!! The steam was hot and heavy and so delicious!! This is a very active menage!! Like with the past book there is kinky play that borders on BDSM, it is the play without the whole master submissive angle. That is not a complaint just an observation. Sometimes I like the dominant attitude and a bit of spanking with out all the protocols. Love this naughty series and can not wait to see what is next!! Hope the new book releases soon!!

    Kate, Bran and Caleb are fated to be family Kate and Bran have been mated for over a year. She is still struggling for acceptance from some of the pack. Her recent pledge to Rebecca has only added fuel to the grievances. Bran has given the pack time to adjust, now it is time to issue ultimatums. A trip to visit a new pack member with young cubs, sends Kate into a tail spin. She finds her self attracted to Caleb and a strong pull to his twin infant cubs, Landen and Lucas.

A trip to visit a new pack member with young cubs, sends Kate into a tail spin. She finds her self attracted to Caleb and a strong pull to his twin infant cubs, Landen and Lucas. Caleb is clearly in need of a break, they head for Rebecca's for group babysitting and a spear bed for Caleb to get some much needed sleep. Caleb is confused by his attraction to his Alpha's mate, everything says she is his mate. Kate feels the same pull, the same pull she feels for Bran. They agree to not act until she can talk to Bran. Ma is able to put Kate's mind at ease. Bran, Kate and Caleb embrace their mating. Bran and Kate readily embrace Caleb's half wolf cubs, as their own. Their mother was a snow leopard and Caleb's best friend. Her leep murdered while Caleb and the boys were not at home. There is some adjustment and hurt feeling while they settle into their new life. The hyena's are still a problem and some one has invited them into Arkadia. The twin cubs are a target. The pack is not alone. The Lions, bears and Rebecca's inner circle step in and offer protection and babysitting. Kate earns the respect of the doubters in her pack for her fierce protection of not only her new babies, but of young pack members in need. A fast paced, sweet and steamy, MFM shifter romance. Arkadia under Rebecca's influence while always being inclusive is now becoming a large family. At the time of this review, this books is in limited availability. With the re release of the first book, Fate Know Best, hopefully it will be available again soon. Hopefully their will be new stories from Arkadia.

But, Fate decides to bring the 5 of them together by having Bran & Kate go over to Caleb's house to see what's happening as he hadn't been to work for a couple of days. Bran at 1st didn't sense anything but Kate did right away & was beside herself until she told Bran that night about what Caleb was to her & him. But, I'm not going to tell what his reaction was because you need to find out for yourself what happens next.

    Really fun This is another good book from Alanea Alder. It's fun and interesting. It continues the story from book one. Each book is about a different couple but really should be read in order. This series is very similar to her bewitched and bewildered series. The editing needs work though. That's a problem with all her books but that hasn't stopped me from rereading them a number of times. I definitely recommend any book by this author.

    Another great add to the series. Kate, Bran and Caleb are a interesting couple and come together unexpectedly. Kate and Bran we're already mated so to have Caleb and his twin boys show up is a twist they didn't see coming. I don't usually read MMF books but this town and characters grab you from the start. Can't wait for the next. Another great add to the series. Kate, Bran and Caleb are a interesting couple and come together unexpectedly.

    Not entirely sure about this series. Since I've read and absolutely loved the Bewitched and Bewildered series this one feels like its missing a spark with the characters for me. But that being said I still enjoyed it and I think I will check out the next one since that couple im really exited to read about. Not entirely sure about this series.

    I felt like this was not as engaging as the first book. As much as I loved Kate. I loved Caleb more. Bran felt more like an after thought. I loved the action but felt like I needed more character evolution.

    Better than book 1, the h scented another mate, he has twins, bit of a jerk but he apologised quickly. 1st H needed to be stronger and h became dumber as the story continued. No more for me in this series.

    I like the story, I like the characters we’ve met; I’m not a ménage fan, I just struggle with it. I’m also not a Mm fan and I’ve got a sneaking suspicion that the next book may be my last.

I do include the basics under synopsis though. If you'd like to know my overall thoughts & feelings about the book or author, please check the "Personal Opinion" section. Also, if this is a book in a series, under "Characters," you'll most likely find a fu-bo list. While reading, authors tend to introduce us to numerous characters and I find I wonder if they will get their own book, so I decided to include this in my review. I will try not to include "SPOILERS" if there are any. And now to my review: General Synopsis: This is the second book in Alanea Alder's [Kindred of Arkadia] series, which focuses on a mènage mating between Bran McGregor, Kate Edwards (who are already mated prior to this book) & Calab Donovan, who is also the father to twin cubs, Landon & Lucas (snow leopards). Characters/fu-bo: Liam - Fated Forgiveness Kindred of Arkadia 4 Connor - Fated Surrender Kindred of Arkadia 6 Ashby - Fated for Forever Kindred of Arkadia 3 Rian Damian (Nic)holas Dr. Maddox Claybourne - Fated Healing Kindred of Arkadia 5 Benedict Duncan Emmett (Finn)ian Gavin Riley Moe/Mojo - Fated Redemption Kindred of Arkadia 8 Cecelia Gina Beau Kaden Personal Opinion: Mini rant here, so you might want to skip. When I first read this book, I put it down for 3*. When I rate books, I have to be honest, I try not to rate a lot of 5*. I set up my 5* rating to be equal to my favorite books, and although I really love/enjoy a number of the books I read, I don't put them in that category. My true highest rating is 4.5*, but anything I rate 3* and above, I would strongly recommend to people (friends, family, fellow readers, complete strangers) and suggest buying as well. Now, back to the 3* rating for this book, when I was trying to flush out this review and reread the book again, I couldn't figure out how to explain why I gave it a 3* rating rather than a 3.5* rating, especially since I would rate the entire [Kindred of Arkadia] series 4*. This being the case, even though there were things I felt missing from the book, I decided to "upgrade" this book to a 3.5* rating. I did enjoy the relationships involved in this book, and I don't just mean the relationships between Bran, Kate & Caleb. I won't give SPOILERS, so read and enjoy. Whenever I read this series, I feel a sense of welcome every time.

Or two Triad books before so my knowledge about how they would work in a story isn't much but it worked here. - I had my doubts before reading the book because the summary mentioned that two of the triad were mates which is basically married then the third member comes in and he's already a single dad, I was scared that the female in the triad would be all guilty and suck for harboring feeling and lust for another guy but it turned out ok - I liked how they settled into a patter and how especially the guys worked things out like a system - I liked how when one of them wronged someone was there to show them what they did wrong I liked the bonding - I liked how everyone was devoted to the kids especially the lions they are becoming my favorite Rian most of all - The continuous unfolding of the story keeps being more and more amazing and I love it Overall, *thumbs up*
