Synopsis

Undercover Shifter Bad Boys = Alphas With Serious Attitude

Tumble Across the Rubicon Into the Death-Riddled World of International Espionage

As an agent for an international espionage firm, Miranda has her hands more than 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’s not certain where to turn.

Garen’s watched Miranda just as surreptitiously as she’s been eyeing him. Unfortunately, the fact that she works for him is a showstopper. Plus, he has a few secrets of his own that have kept him single. When Miranda insists on heading up a covert operation, he can’t come up with a plausible reason to stop her. Watching her sprint headlong into danger damn near kills him. He wants to hold her, love her, protect her.

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

    Great Start to Series

    This book is the first book in the Rubicon International series. I have read other books from this author and I was not disappointed in this book. This is a standalone. And no cliffhanger at the end though it is open-ended for future books. There is violence and hot steamy shifter sex. Definitely 18+. The author packed a lot of emotion and action into this read. The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that info here. The author managed to richly describe the background of the company which is the basis of the series, the characters, and get you caught up in the emotions between the main characters. There is plenty of action as well as twists and turns in the book. I really enjoyed this book and storyline. I hope we see more of Garen and Miranda in future books. I look forward to reading more of Ann Gimpel's books and the next book in this series once it's released. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review though I would have purchased this if I had not.

    Everything you could want in one read

    Garen is a wolf shifter & owns Rubicon International. RI runs a variety of missions of the covert nature. One of his operatives, Miranda, has been sent to help eliminate the leader of a string of abductions involving women & sex/slave trade. All of Garen's proven operatives are all shifters of some kind, but Garen can't decide if Miranda is a shifter or not. The one thing he does know is that he can't get her out of his head & stays turned on whenever he's near her or thinks about her. Miranda has had the hots for Garen since she started working at RI. They both know his rule "no fraternizing with employees". They have hot steamy sex on the airplane while heading home, and Miranda tells him it was a mistake & won't happen again. When Miranda's life is threatened due to her participation in the mission, Garen feels responsible & decides to be the one to protect her. When the bad guys show up at the safe house where both Garen & Miranda are staying, he knows that he has to trust her with his secret of being a wolf shifter. He changes in front of her, which makes her comfortable with showing her shifter self, which is also a wolf. They escape & neither of them can deny their attraction to the other. However, both are determined to stay away so as not to succumb to the temptation. Garen sends her out on an her final test to become a full operative, and he "mind-speaks" to her in her wolf form to help her pass the test. Garen also happens to be the leader of the wolf shifters where they all get together once a month in their wolf forms. Miranda doesn't know this, but once the test is over, Garen in his wolf form approaches her & overcome with his desire for her, he mates with her in wolf form. I won't give any more info/spoilers away, but this is a good story. It's filled with some twists, heightened emotions & steamy sex. This story was a little slow for what I'm used to from Ann, but it is a story that the characters are well-written. You get everything you could expect from one of Ann's books--hope, suspense, action, and steamy sex.

    This isn't your typical paranormal series...

    Received this book for an honest review. This story's flow was all over the place. It seemed slow in the beginning, then seemed to fluctuate the rest of the way. I gather that because this was a remake, it seemed to be written by two different authors or the author's objectives were varied in character development. I couldn't keep focus at times and had to stop and pick it up again later. That being said, I do like the overall concept. It seems overly long due to the history of Garen's early years but when it came to that of the present and his love interest, it seemed the story line was rushed. However, in a series story line it's expected to give background and to setup the rest of the books. But I got the gist and was pleasantly surprised about some love scenes that brought animal lust to new heights. No other author that I've come across has ventured that path and I'm glad to see that I wasn't the only one who wondered what could happen if... I look forward to Lars' story!

    This has it all! Spice, drama, action mystery!

    Two shifters Lars and Garen came up with Rubicon international in 1773. Fast forward a few centuries and Rubicon it a strong agency full of shifters. Getting more is a problem since the can't take out an ad. So the new people are given test with the last one being I'd your now a shifter you don't pass. Garen has had his eye on Miranda since she joined his company. But he can't tell if she is a shifter or not but his wolf will not stop howling for her. Miranda has put her job before her personal life. No one can know she is a shift after all her life depends on it. Since she started working for Garen he has been the star of her dream BUT company rules make them a no no. So he is off limits. Until after a mission gone bad and her boss comes on to her. What's a girl to do? Say no? Yea thing only get complicated after that. Miranda has bad guys after her and Garen stick to her like glue until he find out she is a shifter like him. The to save his secrets he pulls away. Can they learn to trust and let their wolves have their way? Can Garen keep her save from the group after her? OH man ! What an awesome story. The characters are to die for, the story plot is fabulous. There is action, drama, mystery, and spice. Oh yea and bad guys, lots of them! I don't know why but I love bad guys in the story lol. I think this series is going to be awsome. I can't wait for the next book.
