Nicole (The Mate Series) Book #1

Nicole Callahan, mate to fierce and brooding VC Warrior Damon DeMasters, has been trying to find her place in his world. Without a doubt, it’s been interesting, but she believes there’s a lot more she can offer the children she spent so much of her human life fighting for.

The Mate series delves into the kickass world of the Warriors’ mates and how united, they can make a difference—just like their badass Protectors. Follow along to see how these exceptional women’s newfound freedom affect those around them and which Warrior may or may not support their feisty independent mate’s new and exciting path.


I received this book from the author for an honest review.

How can Teresa make the mates of the VC Warriors live up to the men? Well let me tell you she did it. These fierce women are strong willed, bad ass, and do not need a warrior at her back every second of the day to save her.  These women can handle their own but it is nice to have a warrior at their side.

Nicole loves Damon but has a feeling she is losing herself. She misses her work and believes she can and must help the children in the foster system. She loved doing her job and feels there is a need not only to help the kids but to satisfy her own calling.

The mates of the warriors realize they are not being treated as equal as the guys because they are females and the warriors have it ingrained in them that they are to protect the women. The women band together and decide to take matters into their own hands. They agree to help Nicole at the agency and also better themselves in becoming fierce warriors they know they can be without the guys help.

These women are AMAZING. They are strong and will not back down or give up no matter what is thrown at them or who throws them.  OH and believe me they have their time with one on one combat on the mats and in the field.  Nicole and the others can hold their own. Now the only question is will the warriors let them continue their crusade or will the end it? We can already see there are some warriors that over time are going to stand by their women and others that may draw a line that will be too hard to come back from.

I absolutely love these women as much if not a little bit more than the warriors.  I mean really who doesn’t love a woman that can kick some butt and take names later. I am so excited for this series and see each Warriorette become stronger and do as good a job or better than the Cock Club.
