Mac and his team received information, that later turns out to be false, about a woman they are investigating for drug trafficking. Callie has survived the attempt on her life by her late husband and has no patience with the Alpha men landing on her lawn.

Mac’s Mate is Kitty DuCane’s third book about DEA teams, comprised of werewolves. Callie is very rich, in both land and money, and has several people after her land for development. She doesn’t trust men since her experience with her late husband, after she refused to sign her land over to developers. I could understand Callie’s position after I started getting a very clear picture of the physical, as well as the emotional abuse, she experienced. The fact that some of her “friends” belittled her, as well, can be taken from case histories in the real world. I think the author did a very good job of showcasing the damage that some people, women in particular, sometimes have to overcome.

Mac realizes that things don’t quite add up after he meets Callie, but he hates the fact that his wolf recognizes her as his mate. The mistrust undercover law enforcement officials constantly live with came through very well. Despite everything, Mac goes ahead and acts on his feelings, though he knows he is hurting himself in the long run. The jealousy he experiences over the friendship she has with one of the secondary characters is very true to life for a lot of people.

I am looking forward to more about these werewolves, as you meet some very interesting secondary characters in this book. I do wish the author had given these books a name instead of just tying them together with the DEA and werewolves. Each of these books can be read as a standalone book.
