Review by Amaranth
After thirty years on the job, Lucia Malholland's retiring. She loves the Corp but even a Selkie's biological clock gets to ticking. Lucia's ready to find the man of her dreams. Problem is, there's a man stalking her whose dreams are about to put Lucia's in jeopardy.
After building the newest branch of the Corp, Cyber Operations, John and Cole Marshall are ready for a real test of their new unit's skills. Being called in to track down a stalker turned murderer targeting one of their own sounds right up Cy Ops' alley.
All the danger isn't from cyberspace, as Cole finds out when he meets Lucia for the first time. He's torn between eating her and… eating her. Not good. Add to that John's insistence they renew their prior intimate relationship - and suddenly finding a homicidal human suitor, bent on ripping Lucia's pelt and magic from her, doesn't seem quite so difficult.
Wow, wow, and wow! I truly enjoyed this exceptional book from beginning to end. It is obvious that Ms. Garrett poured not only tons of imagination into this story, but also all of her heart and soul!
John and Cole share a love and passion that has consumed them for years. However, Cole has held back, not wanting to bring shame to their family, because they are foster brothers. John, being the sweet, patient man that he is, has waited for Cole. When Lucia is introduced to this trio, immediately sparks fly. Cole and Lucia have a deep love and passion that is almost dark in intensity, but also very caring and sweet. John and Lucia have a more gentle love, but with huge amounts of heat and attraction. When these three get together, the explosion of passion nearly singed me.
Toward the end, when they were all fighting to save Lucia, the action and anticipation had me holding my breath and sitting on the edge of my seat. This is the first book of the series that I have read, but after reading this one, I am determined to backtrack and read the rest! If you enjoy erotic paranormal romance, with ménage, male/male and male/female/male action, then this book is a must read for you!
