Keata doesn’t understand why he feels funny whenever Cody is around but once the other wolves explain, he is devastated. It is up to Cody to prove how much he really loves and wants Keata as his mate, hopefully, before one of the other wolves decides to take his little man.

Keata’s Promise is just one of the stories in this series that I have been anxious to read. While all the stories have been very good and I could not wait to get my hands on them, this one would result in the ‘break-up’ of two of the wolves. From the first story, readers knew that Cody and his long time lover, Jasper, were not fated to be mates and honestly, after seeing how much they loved each other, this made me a little mad. I wondered how the author would work the introduction of Cody’s and Jasper’s mates into the series, knowing that not only would these relationships have to advance the series storyline, but also make a connection with the readers as well.
With Keata’s Promise, Ms. Hagen was able to do both very well. Not only was the author able to resolve the issue of Cody and Jasper, but she also cleared up the problem of Jasper’s continued denial of his own mate, Zeus. Just because Cody is now able to go to Keata does not mean their relationship will go smoothly. In fact, Keata does not trust Cody, which is understandable, and believes the two of them should spend some quality time getting to know each other before jumping into the claiming. Once these two do get together, the passion between them is intense and I loved how Keata told everyone the pair had finally mated.

There are two things fans of this series can expect, hot sex and constant humor. Keata’s Promise has an abundance of both, keeping the reader turning the page. This newest addition to the Brac Pack series is a great story and one not to be missed.
