Their existence was a secret the government stumbled upon. In exchange for continued autonomy, the paranormals entered an alliance with the government. Now they are A.L.F.A.: Alpha League Federal Agency, sworn to protect and serve humanity.

Brilliant scientist Melinda Caster has discovered a new strain of the Zika virus that stimulates synaptic growth in embryos, causing neuron development beyond normal human levels. Way beyond, like ESP-levels of cognitive abilities. When the lab is broken into, Melinda realizes that someone has been keeping tabs on her research and wants it for themselves. A happy accident destroys critical data before it can fall into the wrong hands, but unfortunately that makes Melinda and her perfect memory a target.

A.L.F.A sends in jaguar-shifter Agent Parish Hamels to discover who is after the virus and why. The beautiful scientist acts like catnip to his senses and throws his mating instincts into overdrive. And then she disappears along with the only sample of the virus…. Now Parish must canvas the darkest areas of the supernatural underground to rescue Melinda, and what he discovers is beyond a paranormal’s worst nightmare.

Elemental Mating is the first installment of An A.L.F.A. series by Milly Taiden.

Melinda Caster is a scientist who has discovered a new strain of the Zika virus that enhances the development of a normal human being. However, when her lab is broken into, she realizes that someone has been secretly keeping tabs on her work. Thankfully they didn’t get any information when she destroys the crucial data, but with her photographic memory, she now has a target on her head.

A.L.F.A sends out Agent Parish Hamel a jaguar-shifter to protect Melinda while finding out the basic information of what and why someone wants this virus. But when this Parish meets Melinda, his animal can’t help, especially when she suddenly disappears. Now he’s racing against the clock to find his mate and claim her before anything else happens.

But what happens when his worst nightmare becomes reality?

Whoo. Elemental Mating is exactly the kind of shifter book I want to read. There’s an amazing amount of action, sexual tension and who doesn’t like a good chase? There is some serious cat and mouse going on between Parish and Melinda. In addition, I love that Melinda is a sassy lady because her remakes had me giggling throughout the story. This couple was the purrfect combination when it comes down to chemistry.

I highly recommend for those who enjoy shifter novels. – Reviewed by Julianne

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken returns with a smoking-hot story about the satisfaction of plotting revenge on your ex—until he turns your world upside down again.

Austin Rogers’s dreams of domestic bliss involved watching Netflix and eating hot dogs with the love of her life. But then he cheated on her. And dumped her—as if the whole thing was her fault. To maintain her pride and restore her sanity, she decides to get revenge. It feels immensely satisfying to plot her ex’s downfall—but so does kissing him.

Thatch Holloway, a plastic surgeon straight out of residency, knows he ruined the best thing that ever happened to him. But not all cheaters are created equal. He got himself into this messed-up situation—true—but he has his reasons for what happened, and he’d do it all again to protect Austin.

He’s not over her. And she’s not over him.

Austin wants closure, but since Thatch refuses to give it to her, she takes matters into her own hands. She needs to write a human-interest piece for her MBA, so she demands the full plastic-surgery experience. Sparks fly as they’re forced to work together. But Thatch isn’t afraid to play dirty in return. And he’s still hiding something—something that has the power to destroy not only Austin but their second chance at finding forever…

Austin is furious and she wants revenge! She was pretty sure that she and Thatch were a perfect couple till he cheated by kissing Brooke. When Austin decides she will forgive him, Thatch tells her he doesn’t want her and that he needs a woman, not a girl. Austin decides that revenge will be the best thing she does things to Thatch that are so embarrassing everyone knows about it. Thatch is a plastic surgeon so his practice could suffer if she keeps up her revenge but then her professor gives her an assignment that she needs Thatch’s help for.
Thatch had a reason for breaking up with Austin that he can never tell her but the trouble is now he is with her all the time and is slowly killing him. The problems that Austin and Thatch get themselves into is hysterical and sometimes I found myself giggling at the antics. It really a sweet love story and a really fun read. – Reviewed by Linda

Hair black as a raven’s coat, skin as white as snow, lips as read as, blabitty-blah, blah, blah. If one more person calls me sweet and innocent, I’m losing my head.

I’ve got more pressing matters to think about. Like the fact that our wolf pack is in serious debt. If I can’t find a way to secure financing for our estate, we’ll lose our shifting sanctuary. My stepmother—wonderfully wicked as she is—has come up with a plan: seduce a rich jeweler who’s visiting for the weekend. And then, when he agrees to bond with me and make me his forever, we’ll be saved. Not such a bad deal, considering he’s crazy hot, and I’ve had a crush on him forever.

One problem: I’m not a temptress, not by a long shot. It’s a good thing my childhood best friend, Hunter, has come back into the area. He’s always been a playboy and knows how to get what he wants. He agrees to teach me the rules of seduction, but before long, I realize I'm the one being played.

Snow’s Seduction certainly gets your blood going. Whoo! This was a steamy beginning for Snow as she literally falls into the hands of her childhood friend, Hunter. He’s back and before they knows it, they’re held up in a closet getting it on. However when misunderstandings are cleared up, Snow ask for Hunters help to become a seductress for her to snag Malcolm’s attention. But what happens when Lesson One becomes more than they bargained for?

Will Snow be able to keep her eyes on the prize or will her attention drift?

Snow’s Seduction was quick. I felt like my head was spinning at how fast part one was going. There was no real ground other than Snow wanting to become a seductress. However, I did love Hunter’s characters. He had a duty to carry out from Snow’s father, but this childhood friend is ready to show a bit more love Snow’s way. I love watching him see her in a new “light” so to speak. Hunter’s character is the one I’m invested in.

I can’t wait to see what happens when things become even more complicated then they anticipated. – Reviewed by Julianne
