Their existence was a secret the government stumbled upon. In exchange for continued autonomy, the paranormals entered an alliance with the government. Now they are A.L.F.A.: Alpha League Federal Agency, sworn to protect and serve humanity.

Brilliant scientist Melinda Caster has discovered a new strain of the Zika virus that stimulates synaptic growth in embryos, causing neuron development beyond normal human levels. Way beyond, like ESP-levels of cognitive abilities. When the lab is broken into, Melinda realizes that someone has been keeping tabs on her research and wants it for themselves. A happy accident destroys critical data before it can fall into the wrong hands, but unfortunately that makes Melinda and her perfect memory a target.

A.L.F.A sends in jaguar-shifter Agent Parish Hamel to discover who is after the virus and why. The beautiful scientist acts like catnip to his senses and throws his mating instincts into overdrive. And then she disappears along with the only sample of the virus…. Now Parish must canvas the darkest areas of the supernatural underground to rescue Melinda, and what he discovers is beyond a paranormal’s worst nightmare. 

In this fast-paced paranormal romance, the reader will quickly see the author's' creative genius as she weaves an exciting story around the Zika virus and the unusual anomalies it creates. Her portrayal of Melinda as a klutzy extraordinary scientist is done to perfection allowing some humorous scenes that will cause the reader to laugh. This part of her personality takes the could be boring scientist and gives her an adorable quirk.

Parts of the story involving jaguar-shifter Agent Parish Hamel at times felt too plain for his larger than life personality but those instances are rare because this man knows how to be in charge and get what he wants. It is quite adorable how he forces himself to be patient, focus on his mate's welfare and not try to bulldoze her into accepting him.

Additionally, secondary characters such as Sefu, Lamozierus, and Cuzork expand on the mysticism and danger in this story creating a very exciting plot that will keep the reader mesmerized to the very last page.

I give this 4.5 stars for the author's superb manner of keeping the forward movement of the story intricate, exciting and smoking hot.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

Milly Taiden (also writes as April Angel) was born in the prettiest part of the Caribbean (to her) known as the Dominican Republic. Currently, she resides in New York City with her husband, bossy young son and their little dog Speedy.

When she’s not working full-time, texting with her best friend Heidi in England, chastising her son for pulling the dog’s ears, shopping with her sister Jewel or watching scary movies with her husband, she can be found writing on her laptop. 

She’s addicted to shoes, chocolate, Dunkin Donuts coffee and JIMMY THOMAS covers!!!
