HE LEFT TO KEEP HER SAFE
Believing he's too dangerous to be among people, feline hybrid Tanner Howland retreats deep into the forests of Washington State—with no choice but to leave behind the woman who's captured his heart. What he doesn't know is that she followed him...
SHE WOULDN'T STAY BEHIND
Heartbroken and determined, Dr. Zarina Sokolov tracks Tanner into the wild. Her presence unleashes Tanner's protective instinct—big time. Locals have been disappearing and he is desperate for Zarina to leave. As the kidnappings escalate, Tanner must embrace the dangerous instincts he fears so much. But with Zarina at his side, he'll have to learn to control his animal impulses, or lose himself—and the woman he loves—to the beast within.
X-Ops Exposed by Paige Tyler (X-Ops, #8)
He lived through hell and now Tanner has gone “hermit” on the world to protect those he loves, especially Dr. Zarina Sokolov, the woman he left behind who has a firm grip on his heart. Did he really believe the brilliant scientist wouldn’t’ track him down, even if it meant into the wilderness, unprepared for the wilds of Washington state?
Little did Zarina know she would find herself in the middle of a series of disappearances surrounding a survivalist group, disappearances that are darker and more sinister than anyone could know. Now Tanner must embrace the animal within to keep her safe, but will she be safe from him or will she find a way to sooth the beast within?
Across the country, Tate Evers is caught up in more kidnappings and they all have the same theme, genetic experimentation, murder by wild animal and a twist we couldn’t have seen coming.
How do two separate plots get woven together? Ah, that is the brilliance of Paige Tyler’s writing in action! X-OPS EXPOSED is another intriguing, action-packed tale that introduces a new character or two into the mix, possibly as fodder for more in the series? Expect the sizzle of romance, threats both known and unknown and some warm family time as Tanner learns that no man is an island and quite possibly, the doctor really does know best!
