If being lost in a secret super-agent world is the one thing you desire this is the book for you. The world in the book is filled with vampires, shapeshifters, demons, and an experiment made superhuman. This book is about superhuman Jack Hunter and shapeshifter Antoine Fortescue aka Le Tigre. The book is in third person from the point of view of the two main characters. Jack finds himself being sent to France to help another agent of the Sentinel, Antoine, on the hunt of a most feared demon, Le Bete. The book follows the chase of not only the demon but the chase of Antoine to get Jack into bed.
Viki Lyn brings us into a world where World War II has just ended and there are dark creatures still lurking in the shadows. The two characters remain stubborn throughout the book never changing their game of cat and mouse. Jack believes being with Antoine is a sin and that doesn’t seem to phase Antoine as he persists that Jack is his mate. Jack has a hold on his past, one that he can never return to again, while Antoine is never ashamed of who he is. The two seem like opposites but Lyn brings them together as unexpected destined mates.
I would like to have seen Antoine change his game a little to try and catch Jack but there are great moments of tension and strong actions sequences leaving us wanting to know what happens next. Readers will enjoy this book and look forward to reading book two to find out what happens next with the Sentinel agents.
