Deylen Troika has been a changed man since the unsolved murder of both of his parents. Now Alpha of his clan, his mission is to find their killer, find a mate, and produce an heir. The problem is no one is attractive to him in his clan. But his new employee, Seneca McClane, is.
Her goal of going to school to become a doctor in her sites, Seneca takes a job working for Deylen Troika’s lab to earn the money to make it happen. But the money from a 9-5 job isn’t accumulating fast enough. So she tries a different method of quickly accumulating wealth, and gets “caught” by her employer. What happens after that is steamy and sexy, and the beginning of a relationship neither is prepared for.
Scorpio Risen is a different take on a shifter story, and I really was excited about it. I liked the storyline, the main characters, and the friction that made the story interesting. Unfortunately, I just couldn’t get into the fact that they were insects, even though that is what drew me to the story in the first place. If there were just scorpions I think I would have been okay, but when spider shifters were introduced, I had a problem. They are my one big phobia. So, that’s just me. Give this story a try!
Deylen Troika is the new Alpha of the Centruroides clan of scorpion shifters and the owner of a toxicology lab to appear legitimate amongst mortals. Forced to hire a new employee for his lab, Deylen has to go outside of his clan to find someone with the qualifications. He can't help but notice his new employee, Seneca McLane is stunningly beautiful If only her personality wasn't so abrasive.
Deylen uncovers a secret Seneca harbors, bringing them closer together, more than he would have imagined. It also puts his own secret in danger of being discovered.
When a rival clan challenges Deylen for the city, Seneca is caught up in to a world she knows nothing about. Can Deylen keep his clan affairs separate and protect her innocence or will she become an unwitting pawn in the fight for supremacy amongst the arachnid shifters?
