Miranda's Mate

The Company Store, Book 1

The constant plot twists keep the pace of this book fast passed. The suspense will keep your attention to the end. I cannot wait to find where Ms. Gimpel will take this series next. I found this book fascinating.

Miranda Miller, who has hidden her shifter side from EVERYONE all her life, works for The Company, but is still basically a trainee until she passes her final test. She is returning from a wet job in Amsterdam. She completed the assignment, but her cover was blown. She ends up sneaking back into the country and going to ground with her boss, Garen LeRochefort. He wants her safe and alive. Both have been drawn to each other, but have kept from acting upon that attraction because of their working relationship.

Garen decides to hide her away in the woods and far away from any male threat, including his best friend Lars. When the ISL finds and attacks the safe house some secrets are revealed, but there are still more waiting to be brought to light. Miranda will be left with no one to trust, not even herself. Miranda works on staying alive, completing the source of her training, and not acting on her desire for Garen. It keeps her on edge.

Book Blurb for Miranda's Mate

Keeping secrets is Miranda’s job. The biggest of which is the fact that she’s not entirely human. But being a wolf shifter comes in handy when you’re an agent for The Company. Secrets, danger, and international intrigue will keep you turning the pages of Ann Gimpel’s hot, new romance, Miranda’s Mate.

As an agent for an international security firm, Miranda has her hands full. Between secretly lusting after her boss, Garen, and making sure the dirty little secret about her double life as a wolf shifter remains hidden, she’s still a virgin at nearly thirty.

Sent to eliminate the head of a human trafficking organization in Amsterdam, she barely escapes with her life. Injured, frightened, and under attack the second her private jet lands in the U.S., she doesn’t know where to turn.

Garen’s been watching Miranda just as surreptitiously as she’s been eying him. Unfortunately, the fact that she works for him is a showstopper. Plus, Garen has a few secrets of his own that have kept him single. He’s frantic once he discovers his oldest friend is besotted with Miranda too. When she insists on heading up a covert operation, he’s worried sick but can’t come up with a plausible reason to stop her.

Miranda’s life is on the line. Will Garen risk exposure to save her?
