An undercover mission exposes hidden longings in the irresistible paranormal romance series from the New York Times bestselling author of Mating Needs.
The Alpha League Federal Agency’s sworn duty is to protect humanity from the worst of the paranormal universe. Wolf-shifter Agent Bryon Day has been deep undercover for more than a year, investigating a human trafficking ring, when he goes MIA. Since A.L.FA. never leaves an agent behind, a team is sent to save him—or bring his body home.
FBI agent and ace cryptographer Kari Tomlin is selected for the rescue task force. Under the ruse of a ditsy tourist, she searches an ancient European city for Agent Day. When she learns he’s locked up in the palace’s dungeon, she plans a covert jailbreak. Together they risk the dangerous, booby-trapped tunnels below the city for freedom…and a chance to discover if this really is a mate bond growing between them.
Dangerous Mating is a thrilling, on the edge of your seat excitement that takes you under the caves of Nazi tunnels in Germany, with a crazy villain and a fated mates theme that will pull you under into this sensual love tale…
Dangerous Mating is the third book in the latest series by Milly Taiden. I have had the opportunity to read this author over the past few years and have enjoyed her work. She is very quick to read, her writing is highly engaging, I never want to put her books down and they aren’t too overly long which is nice at times. Our important key players in the book are:
- Bryon Day, an agent for the A.L.F.A. organization, a hidden military organization, with shifter agents who solve crimes. Bryon, while undercover, finds himself captured and being tortured and drugged with no way out.
- Kari Tomlin, is an FBI agent and a specialist in cryptography, and she is asked to go into field work in Germany and she is more than thrilled. Not realizing that her life is about to change.
Dangerous Mating is a story that had me on the edge of my seat and I didn’t want to let go. I really had a blast with this book, probably a bit more than I expected. I will say that this book isn’t too deep, it’s really just fun and carefree despite the hints of danger and suspense that this story is riddled with. It is a story of instant love and fated mates, so if that is not your thing, not sure you would enjoy this book. However, if you are like me, where these tropes aren’t a problem then you will get a kick out of these two. Both Bryon and Kari are entertaining, have great senses of humor and act on their instincts. Bryon is a wolf shifter, and his people only mate once and still hasn’t found his mate. Kari is human, but she does know about shifters since she had a good friend who was mated with one. Ever since she has admired that type of connection these “mates” have with each other. When she goes undercover and ends up embroiled in a dangerous plot and the man that she is searching for is being drugged and held prisoner. She comes up with a plan to save him only to be on the run, hiding out in tunnels trying to make it to safety before the “demented prince”, the villain of the story, finds them. As they crawl through caves, trying to get a way out, they both realize pretty quickly what a connection they have and that they are mates.
I’ve gotten to know you, Kari. Not just your scent branded on my brain, but you. Inside and out. Whether you want to admit it or not, you are mine. MINE. My mate. Now and for always. But I can’t do anything about that alone. I need you.
What I really loved about this couple is how comfortable they are with each other. So at ease, always teasing each other, playing and boy can they KISS!! I felt like I was on fire. They definitely have some powerful chemistry both sexually and NOT. Which was quite wonderful to see. We see that even though they do have some great chemistry, they also become good friends and it truly brings a great balance to the story. Now I will say that the heroine really was so FUN. Seriously, her personality is one that you would want to be friends with. She may not be a field agent but she can kick ass when she needs to and I loved her spunk. Some of her stunts, I was like she is so crazy and I LOVE her for it. She has such a compassionate heart and will do anything to save innocent women and children being sold on the market.
I want you, Kari. Forever. Let me have you.
There isn’t much drama except for the plot lines with them being hunted and all. But as far as their relationship goes, it was smooth sailing which was quite refreshing. They just instantly are drawn to each other and they don’t fight what they feel for each other, only embrace and accept it for what it is. A BREATH OF FRESH AIR!!
