To Mate an Assassin
Publication Date: July 28, 2015
Love is her enemy…until his beast sets her free.
Cymbeline Kendall’s life is quiet, solitary—until a letter appears in her P.O. box. Then she becomes an Incendiary, a human chosen at birth to be trained to strike like lightning to take out the most dangerous of the Werekind, then fade back into the shadows. She is a weapon only to be used by the leader of North American shifters. But when she learns the Alphar was unseated three years ago, she sets out to find who’s been pulling her trigger. Kerrick Masterson has borne the burden of leadership for only a short time, yet he already feels the Alphar power tempting his soul toward the insanity that destroyed his predecessor. He has no time for the woman who breaks into his compound claiming to be his Incendiary, but his beast insists he make the time—for his mate. In one searing, soul-consuming breath, everything Cymbeline was taught to believe is ripped away. Yet the mystery of who’s been sending her orders remains…and finding the answer could lead to all-out war. Warning: Contains an assassin who doesn’t tolerate those who hurt the weak, and a shifter leader determined to unlock his new mate’s repressed emotions—even if that puts his balls at risk. Explicit sex, violence, and references to abuse that could be rough on sensitive readers.
To Mate An Assassin was an exciting new spin on paranormal reading. I enjoy a good paranormal romance and this one gave me a lot. It was full of passion and not just the panty melting kind. It also had an element that I hadn't ever read before, at least not like this. An Incendiary. An assassin, the boogieman of the shifter world. How she came to be was so interesting I wish I could have gotten even more about it in the book because it was neat. I gobbled this book up. I didn't want to stop.
Cymbeline is so passionate even when she is suppose to be a cold blooded unfeeling machine. She feels so deeply and I don't think she realizes when she does except for maybe Irisi. Kerrick the Alphar makes her very passionate and that just pisses her off. Someone sending her kills other than the Alphar really pisses her off. Thinking the Alphar ignores her for 3 years sets her off the Richter scales.
This book kept me entertained and on the edge of my seat half the time waiting for the shoe to drop. It had it's light hearted moments and it also had it's heart felt ones. And I can not forget the very steamy ones! I also get a peek at a future book and I better get that one! It has been hinted at throughout this one and I need that story! Ceri Grenelle you know I'm talking about Jeremiah! I enjoyed this novel and recommend it to Paranormal Romance lovers, they will love it for the action and passion alone!
