Join FBI Agents Emma Monroe and Zack Armstrong.

She’s a Siren. He’s a Werewolf.

Their mission is redemption.

Emma Monroe is a Fallen Siren, cursed by the gods and banished to Earth for her failure to prevent the kidnapping of Persephone. She’s had many names and many lives, but only one mission: redemption. Now she works for the FBI and is on temporary assignment in Charleston. Solving this next missing persons case could be the key to ending her ancient curse—unless the temptation that’s her new partner gets in the way.

Zack Armstrong is a Werewolf. Tall, dark, and dangerous, he currently works for one of the bureau’s elite Child Abduction Rapid Deployment teams. In many respects the man is every bit as mysterious as his secret and perilous past. But there are two things he’s certain about, that he’s going to get his man and his woman.

When Zack finds himself suddenly shy a partner and a third child goes missing in Charleston, Emma goes from consultant to CARD team member in the space of a few hours. The abductions of the first two boys ended in murder, an outcome that neither Zack nor Emma can abide. As they race against time to track down the kidnapper and rescue the latest victim, they find themselves fighting something just as treacherous—a growing attraction that can’t be ignored or denied.

Yup and I got my hands on it before it released :).  My review is under all the juicy stuff, like giveaways and information on Cursed, the first book in the series.


So, if you haven’t read any of the others that is okay, this can be a stand alone because it really introduces the two main characters, and of course there is some Siren on Werewolf action so be prepared.


And here is a giveaway 🙂

The first book in the series Cursed is also available




Meet FBI Agents Emma Monroe and Zack Armstrong.
She’s cursed. He’s damned.
Together, they make one hell of a team.


Emma Monroe is a Siren, cursed by the gods and bound to earth to atone for an ancient failure. She’s had many names and many lives, but only one mission: redemption. Now that she works missing persons cases for the FBI, it could be just a rescue away. Unless her new partner leads her astray.


Special Agent Zack Armstrong just transferred into the San Diego Field Office. He’s a werewolf, doing his best to beat back the demons from his dark and dangerous past. As a former Black Ops sniper, he’s taken enough lives. Now he’s doing penance by saving them.


Emma and Zack’s very first case draws them deep into the realm of the paranormal, and forces them to use their own supernatural abilities. But that leaves each of them vulnerable, and there are lines partners should not cross. As secrets are revealed and more women go missing, one thing becomes clear: as they race to save the victims, Emma and Zack risk losing themselves.

My Review


I really enjoyed this book.  I had just finished one titled Death Toll and it also spoke of Sirens, but in that book sirens were created while in this book there are three sirens and they are from the time of ancient gods and goddesses.  The difference between the two is very interesting.


So I am a read once kinda girl, when I know the plot, I know the plot, however this is a book that I am thinking about picking up in paperback so I can turn the real pages and read all about Emma and Zack.  For me the digital wasn’t enough, I need more.


So the main character, Agent Emma Monroe, which of course is not her real name, is an agent with the talent to do many things to suspects, HOWEVER the minute that she does she may get a slap on the wrist setting her back towards this ultimate goal of I assume final death.  Not only that but the bitch goddess took her wings, although she did leave Emma with some kick ass wing tattoos.


Then there is the studly Zack Armstrong who just happens to have a wolf in him.  So pantheon meet the werewolf of Paris.


Oh and I forget Emma’s friend who is a witch, who likes to bang paranormals.  Oh yeah this book has it all and it is delicious.


The writing is solid and the conversations are not forced.  For a prequel that is also a novella this one packs a lot in it to set up the characters as well as have a plausible plot that has the normal climaxes and resolutions.  There are many one liners that I could pull out to illustrate that only only do the characters work well together, but the two authors work well together.  The only reason that I did not give this book a 5 star was that it is short, it is a novella and therefore just whets my appetite not sates it.


4.5 stars
