Act of Mercy
Paranormal Security and Intelligence an Immortal Ops World Novel
Paranormal Shifter Military Special Ops Romance
Paranormal Security and Intelligence Operative Duke Marlow has a new mission: find, interrogate and possibly eliminate the target—Mercy Deluca. He knows looks can be deceiving, but it's hard to believe the beautifully quirky woman running around in a superhero t-shirt is a viable threat. The little biomedical engineer quickly proves she is more than he bargained for and Intel has it all wrong—she’s not the enemy. Far from it. Intel also forgot to mention one vital piece of information—she’s Duke’s mate. And this immortal alpha werewolf doesn’t take kindly to her being in danger.
When Mercy accepted a position within Donavon Dynamics Corporation, she thought it was to help cure disease and to make a difference for mankind. She had no idea what her new career path truly entailed—monsters masquerading under the guise of scientific research. Unable to stomach the atrocities she’s uncovered, she reaches out through what she hopes is the proper channels, asking for help. Mercy gets more than she bargained for when a team of paranormal hotties show up on her doorstep ready to take down the Corporation. One, in particular, is able to get under her skin, both aggravating and exciting her in ways she can’t explain.
I thought the mix of paranormal with the non-paranormal was very well written. The suspense was heightened by the reveal of their connection. She was an engaging character who was the perfect foil for him. I loved that the intrigue made the story flow with an urgency which was easily felt.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Overall this was just okay. It feels like the author was trying too hard, so the heroine and hero come off almost as caricatures rather real people. Like Mercy is super quirky and Duke is super tough those are their main traits that the author then dials up to an eleven throughout the book. Also everyone is so flippant about everything it gets to be a bit much at times. Mercy suffers from the trope of “not like other girls” to the point that one of the other characters actually says it to her. One of the things I did like was the camaraderie between the characters.
Eh… it’s ok
