Devastated by the death of her father from cancer, Katherine Douglas decides to make a difference to others with cancer and their families in her father’s name. Moving to Montana Katherine buys a house and begins the work to set it up as a place to escape and enjoy life while dealing with the deadly disease. Things seem to be going according to plan when Katherine’s life is suddenly thrown into chaos and she learns that everything she knew about her life was not the entire truth.
Team Alpha of the Paranormal Protection Unit, Treasach “Scythe” Campbell, Quinlan “Mac” McAllister and Sullivan “Sully” McAllister are on a mission when the totally unexpected happens – a woman walks into a bar and their lives are turned upside down. She is their mate – yes all of their mates and now the only thing they can think of is to keep her safe and to claim her as their own. But the three men have a huge secret that might make it hard for Katherine to accept them. First they have to convince her to accept three men as her mates and then she will need to accept that they are also shapeshifters.
Katherine can’t believe that these three unique and sexy men have suddenly come into her life or that she has such intense feelings for all three of them. Once Katherine meets Treasach, Quinlan and Sullivan, she understands that her life will never be the same. Especially when she learns just who and what they are and she still knows that her heart can accept it all. However, beginning a relationship with four people is something that has to have logistics figured out and the time to develop the relationship. The men quickly figure out that they will not be getting this time when they find out that one or more people have targeted Katherine. Danger to their mate isn’t going to happen – period and end of sentence, while finding the answers to what is behind the attacks on Katherine leads to more outstanding and amazing discoveries to the mates. What Katherine knew of her family wasn’t exactly the entire truth and if Katherine thought her mates were special, she is about to find out she tops just about everyone in being special. Treasach, Quinlan and Sullivan all knew that Katherine was their mate and beyond amazing but the reality of just who and what she is even shocks them for a quick second until the love proves that mates are mates no matter who or what they are. The main question is can Treasach, Quinlan and Sullivan destroy the danger against Katherine and get the target off her back before it’s too late?
Love isn’t the only surprise that comes to these four mates who are just beginning their lives together but it is the one that brings their hearts together so tightly nothing will be able to split them up. Katherine, Treasach, Quinlan and Sullivan all find this love and the rest of the surprises that will encompass their new lives together in Their Unexpected Mate. My heart went out to Katherine as I learned about her father in his suffering and then it went out to her again when I learned the true secret of what she was and would be. I loved how Treasach, Quinlan and Sullivan all immediately went into protection mode from the instant they scented Katherine in that bar and then went and planned their own mission to claim their mate and show her just how amazing their lives could be together. I wasn’t surprised by who put the target on Katherine’s back but I was amazed by just what he was. The most surprising thing to me was just how amazing the life of these mates would turn out to be when the final answers came out and all four of them learned of a long ago request and how Katherine was going to fulfill its terms. I can truly say that I didn’t want to get to the last page in this journey that not only focused on the love between these four mates but also a love from the ultimate mother to her children. Yes I know that it is mystic and it was meant to be – you want to know the rest, read the book. Their Unexpected Mate is full of erotic passion, danger filled suspense, and the best type of magic – love. I hope that in future stories I can see how Katherine, Treasach, Quinlan and Sullivan go forward.
