I'm always on the hunt for a good shifter romance. Covert Desires wasn't just a good shifter romance - it's a great one. When I find a good one that's part of a series it feels like I got a cherry on top.
Covert Desires is a story about lovers and secrets. It's about claiming the one you love despite the secrets they're hiding. Danny and Amber both have secrets. He's a werewolf and she's an undercover FBI agent. She came to Alpine Woods to investigate a homeland security threat. His mission is to keep her from discovering that his pack could be that threat, even if it means seducing her. Danny's mission changes when he realizes that Amber is his true mate. He'll do anything to keep his mate safe, even go against his own pack. He'll go against his own family to ensure her safety.
Although Covert Desires is part of a series, it can still be read as a stand-alone story. It was easy to follow even though I hadn't read any of the other books, yet. I'm going to be checking those out later. The characters were all incredibly believable, especially Amber who was coping with some PTSD. It was a little difficult for her to trust Danny. The author made the reason clear and her hesitancy was a pivotal point in the story. The tension between Amber and Danny's family also added to the overall tension.
I enjoyed this story. I'll be checking out the rest of the series. I highly recommend Covert Desires to fans of shifter romance. Try it ...you're going to love it!
Will desire be enough once all their secrets are revealed?
Still recovering from a traumatic assignment, Amber is wary of the man who shows up at her door with a plate of cookies and a welcoming smile. Instinct warns her he’s not all he seems. Then again, neither is she. Since she was sent to root out the secrets of the town and its people, she might as well accept his invitation to dinner. But when things start to heat up between them, will her loyalty lie with her job, or the man trying to win her heart?
Danny knows Amber is an FBI agent. Tasked by his brothers and the shifter council to keep her from discovering too much, he sets out to seduce her, a perfect cover to keep an eye on her and make sure she doesn’t learn about his pack or their society. He hadn’t counted on a blazing attraction at first sight, though. His wolf knows Amber is his mate, and he’ll do anything to keep her safe and happy. But how can he reveal everything he is, and everything he’s been keeping from her, without losing her forever?
