Duke Marlow works for Paranormal Security and Intelligence Operatives (PSI-Ops). He’s also an Alpha werewolf. Alive for a couple hundred years, he hates change. Well, he hates pretty much everything and everybody. Especially technology. When he and his team are sent to Paris to watch a Dr. Mercy Deluca, learn everything she knows about the capture and detention of a former teammate and then eliminate her, Duke takes one look at her picture and suddenly decides she must not die. Confused about his gut feelings it isn’t until he meets her face-to-face that he realizes she’s his mate. And no way will he allow her to be in any danger. They may need her to extract James Hagan, but that doesn’t mean he has to like it. This mission could possibly be the death of him.
Ok, I have a favorite new author. When I picked this story up through the Kindle Lending Library, I knew it was a book 1 in a series. What I didn’t know was that it’s a spin off from another series. Of course, being the way I am that means I need to go back and read the books from the original series, but not just because of my series reading quirks. I need to do it because I love this story. It’s fast-paced, quirky and full of humor. It has many paranormal elements and some steamy stuff. The characters could use a bit more oomph in their personalities, but for the length of this story I’ll take what was put out there about them. Duke is a curmudgeon and Mercy is a feisty nerd. They’re great together! All I have left to say is: I want more!
