Getting shot at is not an enjoyable experience. Neither is being captured. But being saved by a sexy wolf shifter . . .
Cougar shifter Holly Carter always wanted a safe, boring existence. It's why she'd become an accountant. No excitement, no danger, and no over-the-top alpha males.
Unfortunately, now she's got flying bullets, a dead guy, and millions of dollars funneled into a shady, anti-shifters organization. Agent Declan Reed has promised to keep her out of danger, but the sexy wolf shifter may be more trouble than she bargained for . . .

Kyle's enjoyable first Shifter Rogues paranormal starts fast and never slows down. Wolf shape-shifter Declan Reed may not be the alpha of his Shifter Operations Command (SHOC) black ops team, but he doesn't hesitate to take the lead when accountant Abby Carter, a cougar the team's been monitoring, gets cornered by the secret organization determined to eradicate shifters. His instincts tell him that Abby is vital to their understanding of their rival's plans; more importantly, his attraction and connection to Abby drive him to protect her at all costs. Orphaned as a child, Abby relished her solitary life, particularly after being fostered in Alaska with seal shifters who literally left her to sink or swim. But being on the run with Declan and joining his team make her realize that pack life may be what she's been missing. Despite an emphasis on action, Kyle doesn't sacrifice solid character development, including among other members of SHOC, and the sexual tension between Abby and Declan builds to a satisfying climax. Readers of paranormal romance will look forward to future installments.

I really liked this shifter book and it had all the elements I enjoy in paranormal romance. If honest I actually enjoyed it much more than I expected because I normally associate this author with fun, quirky, sexy, fluff which quite often often is relatively short. So I'm delighted by this pairing of Declan and Abby and yes it's the first in a series so lots to set up and a team of shifters to meet . Yet it didn't suffer for that and rather it told a credible story that made sure these shifters feel very 'other '.
So essentially the basic premise is that Abby is a cougar working as an accountant and keeping her head down when one night she discovers a link implicating that there's strong links to an organisation set on taking down any furry friends out there! It just so happens that a crack team of shifters are investigating the company which puts wolf Declan on the spot when Abby's findings come back to bite her hard! Getting Abby away safely should mean she's out of danger but soon Declan questions whether she's really secure at his base!
I loved that this pair listen and communicate with their inner beasts as it made for interesting and indeed comical moments. Plus these are the sort of shifters I like , as in they have enhanced senses meaning they hear and smell for example much better than humans . Really interesting plot as surprises keep on coming plus of course the romance that is central to the story .
So the romance and what did I think? Right from the start Declan and his wolf are incredibly drawn to the woman who shakes her stuff and shimmies when she thinks no one is looking. Abby isn't quite ready to follow her cougars instincts but it's so obvious that she really would like a taste of the sexy, domineering wolf. Declan is such fun ( when he's not killing people! ) and constantly challenges Abby but no he never forces the issue no matter how hard it is, ahem!
I really liked this and I'm beyond excited to find out what a certain tiger will get up to next but for now I'm happy that this solitary cougar has found her place with the very seductive Declan. If you want to read something a little different to the standard pack type stories out there then I'd happily recommend this book
