Synopsis:

Never take Fate along on a date. The kiss goodnight could be deadly.

A Veilers Novel, Book 1


Tracking down Veilers—non humans—is only a sideline for Tess Damon. Vengeance for her fiancĂ©’s murder is her reason for living. But with two botched jobs on her record, if she fails to eliminate her next mark, she’s dead. She’s not afraid to die, but not before she gets even. Too bad fate has a really bad sense of humor.

Hugh Langston, a wolfen half shifter, lives to keep both humans and his pack safe. But when rogue humans kidnap his apprentice, his rescue mission is compromised by a hot-as-hell, kick-ass woman who makes him think only one thing: mine.

Tess tries to ignore her feelings, but temptation trips her up. Especially when Hugh figures out he’s her next target and forces her into an inconvenient alliance that tests all the laws against their attraction. Now, with the line between good and evil getting blurrier by the minute, it becomes clear Tess’s only hope of living to see another day—and finding a murderer—lies with the one man she’s supposed to kill.

Warning: Contains one obscenely hot alpha and the woman who wants to love him before she kills him. Look out for a blind date, scorching sex, humor, lies, and untamable attraction.


Veiled Target (Veilers, #1)My Review
Veiled Target by Robin Bielman
My Rating:   4.5 Stars

Living a life filled with hate and revenge, Tess is a mercenary who snuffs out the lives of “veilers,” the non-human beings that inhabit the earth alongside humans. Lately she is questioning if she is losing her edge, then along comes her new assignment, Hugh, a wolfen, a warrior, a protector of his pack and Tess is once again, questioning her ability to carry out her duty. As they battle wills on all fronts, a unique bond is formed, but how can they trust in each other when they both know Hugh is Tess’s current target? Can they work together like a team to save one of Hugh’s packmates from evil kidnappers?

Robin Bielman has written with a sexy and edgy flare that held me captive until the very end. Both of her main characters are strong individuals, with Tess being extremely forthright and stubborn, both in her “profession” and personal life as she fights her attraction to her target. Hugh is definitely total alpha, but he leads with a caring hand for his pack and cares enough about the woman Tess keeps hidden that he uses his own brand of “magic” to show her there is more to life than revenge. Each scene in her world played clearly on my mental movie theater as it raced past me on my journey through this adventurous read. Great pacing, hot, and I mean HOT sensual steam, and fresh characters, Keep an iced drink handy to cool you down!


I received an ARC edition of Veiled Target for the author in exchange for my honest review.
