Every instinct in Angelo's body screamed at him to lunge for his weapon. Instead he set his feet for impact, blocking her slashing claws. Unbelievably, after a few moments of struggling, she went still, all the fight gone...
Minka isn't sure she should trust the sexy Special Forces soldier who found her. Subjected to horrors, on the run from scientists set on locking her in a cage, Minka is terrified of the monster she's becoming...and somehow, Angelo is the only one who can calm the beast inside her and make her feel safe.
But can she trust the way he makes her feel when she's not even sure she can trust herself?
Her Fierce Warrior by Paige Tyler (X-Ops #4)
Paige Tyler opens with an intensity that will rock you as a young woman is desperate to survive, to run, but is lost and has no idea who can be trusted. When faced with the huge Special Ops soldier in front of her, her fight instinct slowly and miraculously dissipates as she touches him.
Minka has been a lab rat, tortured and changed into a shifter at the hands of crazed scientists. Angelo becomes her protector, her personal hero, even his scent can calm her raging beast inside. Her beast has a mind of its own and any threat can bring it forward, claws and fangs bared but Angelo sees past all that and finds a terrified woman who makes his heart skip a beat. He will do anything to protect her, but will that be enough? Minka’s appearance raises many questions and there are those who will stop at nothing to get the answers…
Her Fierce Warrior by Paige Tyler is a less brutal and more romantic addition to her series, but still packs an intense punch that will fascinate those who enjoy paranormal suspense. Sure, there is still blood and violence, but it is toned down as several subplots come together and conflicts are resolved for previous characters. As always, Ms. Tyler gives us fully-developed characters that leap off the page with their believable portrayals. Who wouldn’t fall for a protective soldier with honor and a warm heart? Who wouldn’t want to help an abused and terrified heroine accept who she is and learn to trust and control her animal? And…who doesn’t like a romance that sizzles slowly into a full boil?
I received an ARC edition from Sourcebooks Casablanca in exchange for my honest review.
