Weddings are awesome, as long as they're not hers. Not so awesome? Facing the Alpha she ran from...
After living for years amongst humans, Kelli Copeland has to go home for her brother's wedding. She's hoping that a decade is enough for pack alpha, Max, to forget her, settle down and have a passel of kids. If she's lucky, he'll be old and grey to boot.
No. Such. Luck.
Alpha werewolf Max Daniels could have the pick of the females in Stratton, but he only wants one woman, the one who ran from him years ago. When he learns Kelli is back in town, he'll do everything in his power to make sure she doesn't leave again. Up to and including kidnapping her… The problem is, he isn't the only wolf in town with an agenda.
This time, Kelli's departure might the permanent kind.

What did I think about Mated By Midsummer?
I am a fan of Mina Carter’s passionate fast-paced paranormal romances. Her writing style is easy to read and her plots are action-packed – both in and out of the bedroom. 😉
I thought that this story was OK.
However, it wasn’t one of my favourites due to some of the actions and personality traits of her main characters. Our hero, Max, is a domineering alpha who knows who his mate is and nothing will stop him from claiming her. I like a bit of dominance (who doesn’t at times purrrrr). However, his actions and inner dialogue didn’t make me go all warm and fuzzy. Instead, my modern sensibilities were screaming abuse at the thug. Our heroine, Kelli, liked Max but was fighting her body’s sexual urges. Add in her childhood crush on him and there was major inner conflict. I cheered as Kelli tried to retain her strong independence and indignation about not being able to choose herself. However, she was such a cock tease to Max that I lost my respect for her. Both were quick to fly off the handle, shout and rage but neither of them actually opened their mouths to tell the other was the issue was. I found this all very frustrating.
This paranormal romance novella has received plenty of praise, it just wasn’t my cup of tea.
This book has sexual scenes, violence, colourful vocabulary and expletives throughout the story. Therefore, I’d only recommend it to adults who are not offended by content of this sort.
