Pet lover and animal activist Pepper Peterson has a secret. She inherited the caretaker position of the notorious Hell Hounds from her deceased aunt. Every year on Halloween she opens the gates to hell and sets them free to mark the souls of the damned. Only this year she lost the magic whistle to call them home and the massive black beasts run amok causing mischief in the town.
Ottar Jones holds the position of senior boss man at L.A.M.P.S. (Legends and Myths Police Squad) secret government agency. Ottar appalls Pepper. He’s the most barbaric man she’s ever met, but she can’t stop thinking about the sexy brute. When he finally chooses to show up to repair her dinosaur statue, it couldn’t have happened at a worse time.
Ottar’s calendar has been packed full of mythical beasts to capture. Upon return to Haber Cove for his friend River’s wedding he has to contend with the crazy but hot vegan’s dinosaur, but a surprise awaits him. Haber Cove is infested with flesh-eating, ankle-biting Jack-a-lopes, and a pack of large black Hell Hounds. Will all hell break loose when he finds who let the dogs out? Or will Pepper turn out to be the one woman who can tame the savage Aussie hunter?
Light Untamed is the third novel in the L.A.M.P.S. series that features hunky secret agents who find true love while hunting dangerous Cryptids.
This series rapidly became one of my favorite Urban Fantasy series of all time. While each book is tied together, each is also extremely unique and fun in it’s own way. I love the L.A.M.P.S world that Bonnie Gill has created.
I’ve been impatiently waiting for a story about Ottar. He is one of my favorite characters and I was happy to see he finally gets his own. He’s a crazy character for sure, but loveable at the same time. His personality is so vastly different from Pepper that it felt like the only place that would truly appreciate this matchup would be Haber Cove.
Gill does an amazing job of taking old legends and adding a modern and crazy twist to them. She’s able to keep the bones of the legends enough that we still recognize them, but doesn’t distort them so much they feel wrong.
Overall, I love this book. I was cracking up the whole time. Definitely, a must read series.
