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?
CONTENT WARNING: This book contains explicit sex.
Alpine Wood’s Shifters, is one of my favorite series out there. I have read many of her books and have enjoyed them all, but Covert Desires is by far my favorite. I know when I have found a good book when I can feel the connection between the characters right off the bat and Covert Desires is one of those books. I loved reading their story and how the characters were able to cope with each obstacle that was thrown at them.
This story brings in more of the family than the other books in this series. I really liked the tension between the heroine (Amber) and the hero’s (Danny’s) sister Laurie, because it made the story feel even more real.
I love this whole series and I will truly miss reading it when the characters are all mated. This series can be read as standalones, but with all the different characters that are brought back in each book, it's best to read from the beginning.
