Praise for Paige Tyler’s X-Ops series:
“A wild, hot, and sexy ride. I loved it!”—Terry Spear, USA Today bestselling author of A SEAL in Wolf’s Clothing
“Dangerously sexy and satisfying.”—Virna DePaul, New York Times bestselling author of the Belladonna Agency series
Tyler doesn't let improbable science get in the way of an entertaining adventure in the third X-Ops paranormal romantic thriller (after Her Lone Wolf). Kendra Carlsen, trainer and data cruncher at the Department of Covert Operations, finally convinces her boss to let her take part in a field exercise in the Costa Rican jungle. Then her team is attacked by experimental human-animal hybrids, who lack the self-control of the X-Ops shapeshifters. Bear shifter Declan MacBride, who's been nursing a crush on Kendra for years, thinks he needs to protect her; he's impressed when she proves to be a capable, courageous fighter. Kendra starts to realize how attractive Declan is, but he's terrified that seeing him in bear form will scare her off. Even as fantasy science, the hybrids and their origins are hard to believe, but Tyler keeps the reader distracted with relentless ambushes and a sizzling night of lovemaking. Closing hints about a new kind of shifter will keep readers eager for the next book in the series.
Her Wild Hero
Ohhh....deep in the jungle romance. Quite literally. I loved the set up for this book, jungle mission gone wrong, Kendra and Declan alone in the wilderness running and fighting for their lives. Very intense. There was so much action that a couple times the romance got a tad bit sidetracked - but there still quite a few very nice romantic touches and moments that Kendra and Declan experience as they run for their lives.
One of the things I've liked best about this series in general, is that the women can hold their own. They may not be the best at everything, but they have a strength and skill set that is an integral part to completing the mission. Kendra is a serious tough girl, which is a side that we don't get to see too much of before now. She's awesome!!! But, she isn't afraid of her softer side, and is one of my favorite characters so far in the series.
Declan is a big teddy bear - or so we think at first. But he when push comes to shove, we get to see some new sides to the big bear shifter. He's vulnerable, protective, and loving in ways that will melt your heart. I loved watching him start to open up to new ideas and new people. He makes an amazing hero.
The mystery of the hybrids continues and things keep getting more and more convoluted, but I'm hoping we get a few solid answers or leads in the next one.
