Pretty little shifter, wizard prince—their taboo love could burn the barriers between worlds.
Shifter Emma Singer has more problems than she can shake her pretty little wolf tail at. Her heirloom journal is missing, her pack alpha wants her for his harem, and her family plans to sell her to him. Even her wicked little crush on her hot boss is doomed—why would six-and-a-half feet of handsome royal wizard want a boring, good-girl iota shifter like her? Not to mention her only power is going berserker—that's a real relation-shipwreck!
Gabriel Light is a wizard prince who turned his back on his exceptional powers after he was accused of causing his parents' death. Now he pours his intellect into his tech business, and hides his naughty, forbidden lust for his pretty shifter clerk. But when his sister is imprisoned, and Emma is kidnapped, it's time for this alpha geek-wizard to decloak with all laser cannons blazing. Only one problem—how can he be sure Emma won’t get caught in the crossfire?
Then Gabriel and Emma stumble on hidden magic, a key to power beyond imagining—if they can stay alive long enough to use it. But if Emma unleashes her berserker wolf on their enemies, can Gabriel draw her back from the brink before she destroys everyone in her path?
Mind Mates is the second book in the Pull of The Moon series by Mary Huges. I had no idea that this wasn’t the first book in the series while I was reading it, but it does make sense because there are a lot of terms and things going on. But Mary does include a glossary of terms at the start of the book to help you keep foreign words in order, which I really appreciated. I enjoyed Mind Mates. It is a quick paranormal romance read dealing with wizards and shifters and a nice little action adventure mystery.
Mind Mates alternates between Emma, a wolf shifter, and Gabriel’s, a wizard, point of view. I do wish the point of view shifts were a little better labeled, but overall it wasn’t too hard to keep track of who was speaking or thinking. I really liked Emma and Dr. Light. I loved that Dr. Light is a big ole techie. And Emma is pretty quirky and cute herself. They make a good match and I had a lot of fun reading about this forbidden couple. Wizards and Shifters are a big no-no.
Parts of the book were a little cheesy, but all in all this was a quick and fun read. I liked all the magical creatures. I didn’t love simple minded the alpha wolf was. He seemed like he could hardly even string a sentence together. I wish he was a little more complex character, but as it was it was easy to hate him. Emma and Gabriel were well developed and flesh out, which is more important to me. If you are looking for a quick read that will put you in a witchy good mood, check out Mind Mates and the Pull of the Moon series. The books do not need to be read in order to understand and enjoy the characters and plot.

Wolves and wizards…sounds interesting. Glad you were able to figure things out and enjoy this. I love when authors include a glossary.
