This is book 12 of the series but you don’t need to have read the others to enjoy this one.
Ajax and Madison have an uncontrollable attraction to each other which they are both trying to deny because she has been sent to kill him to save her sister who has been kidnapped, and he doesn’t quite trust her story, even though he thinks she is his mate. She finally earns his trust and they work together to find her sister.
This book is full of twists and turns and great secondary characters who deserve their own book. Well written and well worth the read. I received an ARC from the author and leave my review voluntarily.
