From a New York Times bestselling author comes a sexy, paranormal "rough-and-tumble adventure" (Library Journal) about a high-stakes romance between two shifters fighting for their lives.
Cougar shifter Abby Carter always plays it safe. That's why she's an accountant--no excitement, no danger, and no cocky alpha males. She loves her quiet life, but fate has other plans. When Abby uncovers the shady dealings of an anti-shifter organization, she'll have to trust the too-sexy-for-her-peace-of-mind werewolf Declan Reed...or end up six feet under.
Declan Reed is starting over. After two years with Shifter Operations Command, it's time to put his past behind him. Now Declan is the only thing standing between the gorgeous Abby and an early grave, and if he's going to have any chance of keeping her alive, he'll have to embrace the darkness he's fought to keep at bay. But first he has to convince Abby that there's no safer place in the world than the arms of a big bad werewolf.
"Celia Kyle's my go-to for sexy alpha shifters and fast-paced, delicious storylines." -- Jessica Clare. New York Times and USA Today bestselling author
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.

Loved the bantering back and forth between the team. The end definitely leaves you looking forward to more. SHOC isn’t quite what you think. They are bad guys doing good things. They protect the lives of shifters by eliminating the (other) bad guys!
Abby gets caught up in the mess and is just lucky to have survived it with the help of her newly discovered mate. Lots of betrayals going around and the next books will be solving the mystery.
