Sabrina Wayne yearns for the perfect mates to fill the void in her heart. As a werepuma Beta, she is driven to find the strongest Alpha to submit too, or in her case, Alphas. Sabrina craves the delicious softness of a woman as well as the rugged strength of a man. She has almost given up finding the right couple when she takes a leap of faith and allows Madame Evangeline of the 1Night Stand matchmaking service to set her on what Madame Eve promises will be an evening she'll never forget.

Alphas Nick and Madeline Turea have been searching for a woman like Sabrina for a very long time. After a disastrous relationship with a former Beta female, the couple has been extremely cautious to let anyone else get close to them or the Amber Moon pride. When Madame Evangeline contacts them about a possible match, both are eager to meet the beautiful woman who may complete their family.

A night of reckless desire and burning hot passion leads to an unknown danger that might destroy Sabrina's one chance at a perfect love. She must learn to surrender to the power of her Alphas and gain their trust before it's too late.

My Review:

Short and sexy! This is the first in Mayburn's new Prides of the Moon series which is part of Decadent Publishing's 1 Night Stand series.

Madame Eve of the 1 Night Stand dating service works her magic again in this thirty-eight page short.

Sabrina, a werepuma, is set up for a one night stand but hopes they'll be her mates. She's "two natured" (i.e. bisexual) and "sex between werepumas wasn’t just physical, but a magical exchange of energy that satisfied her soul as much as her body." At first her glance of Madeline, Sabrina is disappointed at her "soft and cuddly kitten" look but then she meets her eyes and sees the strength she's looking for.

Madeline and Nick, mated Alphas of the Amber Moon pride, have been set up for a one night stand but are hoping to find someone to complete them. Madeline is instantly attracted to Sabrina, she is physically her opposite. She's glad she asked to meet her alone first. Madeline loves Nick "with all her heart ... but feels they are incomplete". Nick is at first upset with Sabrina for endangering Madeline with her little stunt but is also attracted to her

This has F/F, F/M and F/M/F and I rate it Hot! (3/4) on the heat scale. If F/F makes you squeamish, this may not be for you.

I read it in one sitting, along with the next two shorts in Mayburn's series, and enjoyed it.
