Description

When the topic of grandchildren comes up during a weekly sewing circle, the matriarchs of the founding families seek out the witch Elder to scry to see if their sons have mates. They are shocked to discover that many of their son's mates are out in the world and are human!

Fearing that their future daughter in laws will end up dead before being claimed and providing them with grandchildren to spoil, they convince their own mates that something must be done. After gathering all of the warriors together in a fake award ceremony, the witch Elder casts a spell to pull the warrior's mates to them, whether they want it or not.

Aiden McKenzie is adamant that he doesn't need a mate and that she would only get in the way. He doesn't have time to coddle a female. He likes his world run with military precision. Little does he realize, Fate is sending him his mate first! He meets his destined mate Meryn Evans and things go downhill from there. She is the embodiment of chaos. In the first 24 hours she kicks, screams, and knocks her bear shifting mate unconscious.

Eventually they discover that life before finding each other may have been good, but life afterwards is perfect, even if it involves super soaker battles and accidentally discharging hand grenades.

Unfortunately the joy of their mating is overshadowed when Aiden and Meryn find themselves embroiled in a missing persons case assigned to Aiden by the Lycaonian Council. By assisting Aiden, Meryn finds herself the focus of a demented killer.

Can Aiden and the elite warriors from the Alpha Unit keep Meryn safe? Or did Fate bring her to Lycaonia to die?

Hysterically Funny & Irreverent Paranormal Romance

Don't you love it when a "first" book you listen to makes you immediately want to buy the entire series? That's what happened with this book. Within the first few chapters I stopped listening for just a moment to search and buy the other books --- they weren't there. NO...NO...NO. I NEED a My Commander fix NOW!!!

This is the funniest paranormal romance I've heard. It takes irreverent pokes at society. The author wrote things that I've often wanted to say and sometimes did much to my embarrassment. They say "the truth will set you free" and Meryn Evans spoke it with a good dose of "hoof and mouth disease". If you want tears running down your face with laughter, pee in your pants giggles and a snort thrown in for good measure, then listen to this book. Meryn takes on paranormal high society in the funniest way.

Aiden McKenzie, the Apha Unit's Commander, is out patrolling when a tiny human climbs the warded fence and throws his life into chaos. A human is his mate and she is everything he doesn't need to fit into his station in life. Not only is she human, she is an introverted geek and a computer genius. So, after she knocks him out (spoiler alert) he does the only thing he knows how to do. He locks her in the trunk and takes her home to his parents. They can figure out what to do with her. Let the hi-jinks begin.

I saw that one person hated the narrator. I thought she did an awesome job with her characters. Maybe that reviewer just doesn't have the same sense of humor that I do. Take the time to listen to the sample to see if the author's humor is the same as yours. It definitely tickled my funny bone. The only negative is the book stopped too soon and I felt left hanging as if I was at the end of a chapter rather than the end of a book. Otherwise, it's a 5 star laugh out loud book of wonder.

If you hurry, this book is a whispersync $.99 Kindle and $1.99 audiobook when purchased together. (5/1/17)

There are 8 -12 books (includes novellas) in the "Bewitched and Bewildered" series and sadly, this is the only one in audio format at the present time. Alanea Alder also has another 8 book series, "Kindred Of Arkadia". This author could be my "New Favorite" author if the other books are similar to this one. Now if Audible would just publish the other books in audio format.

Over 28,000 people on Goodreads rated both series with an average of between 4.19 - 4.38. We couldn't all be wrong.

So worth it

Alanea is an amazing author. She brings laughter and adventure to her stories that keep you coming back for more. Meryn and Aiden are the first two characters that you meet. Meryn is a firecracker of a woman who keeps Aiden on his toes as they learn about each other. But danger seems to be around every corner stalking Meryn. Can Aiden save his beloved mate from the feral's or will he lose her just like the nightmares foretold. Follow Meryn and Aiden on there journey, laugh and cry and then laugh some more. It's so worth it.

Second time is the charm

I purchased this book back in the summer of 2016, I love this author and this series, but the first narrator was not very good. Apparently authors do listen (I wasn't,t the only negative review) and found a much better narrator. Thank you Ms Alder. Please do whispersinc if you can, for we fans who like print and audio.

Just couldn't get into it!

Any additional comments?

I was in the mood for this type of book, but man did it disappoint! The chemistry between the 2 main characters is non-existent! Meryn, the heroine is so childlike that it's hard to feel a connection between her and Adian. It feels like a 30-old warrior god is pursuing a 13-year-old with mild Asperger's syndrome. Meryn accepts this world of shifters and vampires so easily that again I kept feeling like she had a low-IQ or something. I know all of her quoting of her pop culture references was supposed to make her a unique fiesty heroine, but it just didn't work for me.
I couldn't finish it, I tried but when you cringe at every line you know it's time to return the book.

Reads Like DICK & JANE Story

The story did have some cute humor that got old after hearing the same thing over and over again. The main female's was so weak afraid all the time you wanted to either scream 😲 or cry 😢.

I struggled to finish the first book and gave up on this one. I'm Sorry to say Don't waste your time or money on these.

A WICKEDLY GOOD, LOL, RIOT OF A PNR

I was so in the mood for something completely different.. and that’s exactly what I got with this hilarious, addictive ott paranormal fun fest filled with shifters, vampires, fae, magic and mayhem as one tiny single human spitfire turns a Bear shifter’s world upside down. Because you’d think a big strong handsome sexy Commander wouldn’t have any problems controlling and claiming his mate.. and yet the feisty little minx challenged and confused him like no other.

What a wonderful world Alanea Alder has created, the descriptive scenes enabled comedic virtual images to play out in my head making each scene colorful, enjoyable and very entertaining. From the Ball, the queen bitch encounters, the variety of secondary characters, the hidden threats, the suspense and danger, the occasional sexy times and the world-building was all very creative, well-paced and intricately woven to reveal a real paranormal gem. I will admit I thought the heroine sounded more like a rebellious child in the beginning but, as this skilful author drew me further in on her enchanted journey, that image was soon lost and a feisty, independent, geeky, shy, endearing, loving heroine emerged. The hero was just a big ol teddy bear you want to hug and kiss.. and when his alpha possessive protective side comes out you want to drool and dream too!!

Worth a credit? Definitely, if you want a lighter paranormal romance that has a few sexy times but it’s not seeped in them, that’s got hidden danger, a good who dunnit plot (that carries over to the next book) and an unconventional quirky insta-romance between true mates - then you’ve just found your next book. And the narration was excellent too.

Not for me - gave up after 30 minutes

I knew by the cover and the description that this focuses on romance/sex instead of action, and I usually prefer the focus to be on action, but I thought "why not?" Sometimes I'm in the right mood and a well written romance-heavy book is just what I want. I gave up on this 30 minutes in and I am returning it.
In these 30 minutes, we get a prologue from his perspective, we get an introduction to our heroine who trespasses into private property without thinking twice (by climbing over a 10 foot fence, no less) and said heroine gets first surrounded by a bunch of military-looking guys with big guns and then kidnapped by one of them - aka the love interest. She is scared, tries to escape, and instead of talking to her or explaining things, he just leaves her in a locked room for hours. When she tries to escape again and hits him over the head doing so, he throws her in the trunk of his car and drives to his parents. So far, I wasn't impressed by the plot, the writing style or forced humour, but I was still okay with continuing, hoping it would get better. This was about 25 minutes in. But then the "heroine" looses all fear of him just because she sees his parents and they look elegant and refined (wth does that have to do with anything?) and another minute later she is suddenly kissing him and thinking that he is everything she's ever wanted. Also, have I mentioned that she takes NO TIME at all to accept that shapeshifters are a thing? She thinks he's crazy at first when he tells her she's his mate (nothing 'bout the shifting bit), but then she sees someone else shift into his animal form, he's like "Oh yeah, we're all animal shapeshifter here" and she's like "Well, I've seen it with my own eyes, so it's true. Okay, moving on." Just, no.
Naturally, since I've only listened to the first 30 minutes, I don't know if it gets better after that. Also, I've stopped in the middle of their first make out session, so maybe she comes to her senses afterwards. Or maybe not. But I'm not willing to spend more time to find out.

The narrator is okay. She sounds too breathy for my tastes, especially because she does so right from the start (and all her voices do, even the male ones... so maybe it's just the way she sounds normally) but I could ignore it after a few minutes. Not my fave, but not a deterrent either.
