Strength of the Mate Cover

Strength of the Mate  is available NOW on MLR’s website. It has been submitted to the usual distributor sites, and should start showing up over the course of the weekend. We’re at the mercy of those individual systems, though, since each site controls itself.

Still, all e-book formats are available at MLR.




















Kendall McKenna

Kendall mckenna love & dog tags Kendall McKenna is an author of M/M erotic romance novels. Kendall McKenna’s first work of fiction was written at the worldly age of nine, and was a transformative work that expanded on the story told in a popular song of the time. She tried her hand at vampire and cowboy fiction, winning high school poetry and short story contests along the way. It wasn’t until she discovered the world of m/m erotic fiction and found her stride with cops, Marines and muscle cars, that she felt inspired to share her stories with readers who enjoy the same things. Putting herself through college by working in a newly-created HIV testing clinic in her local Department of Health, introduced Kendall to the gay and lesbian community. Understanding and empathy has made her a lifetime advocate of GLBT issues. A brief bout of unemployment gave Kendall the time and focus she needed to finally produce a novel worth submitting for publication. Her first novel, Brothers In Arms, introduced the world to her authentic military stories and characters. Kendall was born and raised in Southern California, where she still lives and works. A non-conventional relationship has kept her happy for the last decade. Her four dogs enjoy it when she writes, as she sits still long enough for them to curl up around her.


  1. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!! Just got my copy and I can’t wait to start reading 🙂

  2. YIPPIEE!! I just started! Super super excited!

    • I really hope you enjoy it!

      • I finished last night and am FLOORED, once again! The addition of the dirty talk was absolutely DELICIOUS and I want to personally thank you because, OMG, it was DELIGHTFUL and SO STEAMY!!!

        Every new book you write is better than the last Kendall. That seems to be the trend. Thank you for the newest 356 pages of grade A, top notch reading material. $8.99 is higher priced than most romance ebooks, but you are worth every penny and I would have gladly paid more knowing your track record.

        Enjoy your newest wave of accolades! You’ve got another hit on your hands.

        • I’m so happy you liked it! These two were a pretty emotional pairing, and I worried sometimes, that it was too much. The dirty talk surprised me! Dawson just started in with it and Adam liked it, so we all just rolled with it. When it was done, I kinda liked it, too!

          I am definitely not the right kind of author for anyone who selects books based only on price. And there are people who have emailed to tell me they refuse to read my books for no other reason than the price (I tell them it’s their loss!). I admit, I had sticker shock when I saw the price for Strength of the Pack, but I had faith that MLR knew what they were doing. When the reviews began to pour in, with readers saying the books are worth the price, and they were sorry they even hesitated, I knew MLR had understood the market. The stories are 85K – 125K words long because I write layered stories and complex characters (which takes quite awhile to do!).

          I’m really glad everyone likes it, because I grew fond of these boys, and I wanted readers to love them, too!

  3. loved it can’t wait for the next one. Love those wolf books. Any hints who is next?

  4. Loved this book! Read it over the weekend and had hard time putting it down. I enjoy this series and the characters immensely and look forward to the next one.

    • Thank you! As a reader, too, I know that feeling of not being able to put a book down. That’s a huge compliment. I appreciate that. I’ll get the next one written as soon as I’m able!

  5. Loved this book ❤️
    Still no release date for the 4th book?
