Thursday Thirteen – Meet the Characters in HER PERFECT MATE!

Thirteen Characters in HER PERFECT MATE (X-OPS Book One), my first NY Release!

1.Ivy Halliwell – The heroine, she’s a beautiful feline shifter who can kick some serious butt in a fight. She works as a special agent at the Department of Covert Operations (DCO for short), and after being teamed up with a couple military guys who treated her like crap, she isn’t thrilled that her new partner is Special Forces.

2. Landon Donovan – The hero, a captain in the Army Special Forces and commander of an A-TEAM, he hates when the powers that be in the DCO yank him out of a warzone to work as a covert operative, but since he doesn’t have much say in it, he has to make the best of the situation. Well, after he gets past the shock of being partnered up with a woman who looks like a supermodel…and has claws.

3. Clayne Buchanan – A wolf shifter and special agent at the DCO, he has a thing for Ivy and a bad attitude. But he’s got good reason for that bad attitude – he’s carrying around a lot of baggage. He doesn’t like Landon (or humans in general for that matter) and he vows to tear the Special Forces soldier apart if he pulls any of the crap that her previous partners did

4. Kendra Carlsen – Behavioral scientist/training officer at the DCO, she’s Ivy’s best friend and has been seriously crushing on Clayne for years.

5. John Loughlin – Director of the DCO, he has his hands full with the Congressional Committee that oversees the organization and all their secret agendas, but he’s determined to do things the right way and protect the agents who work for him, no matter what it takes.

6. Declan MacBride – A bear shifter and special agent at the DCO, he’s been secretly in love with Kendra since he started working there, but knows there’s no way she’ll notice him with Clayne around.

7. Angelo Rios – Sergeant First Class on Landon’s Special Forces A-Team, he’s Landon’s best friend and thinks of him more like a brother. There’s nothing he wouldn’t do for Landon. His specialty is weapons.

8.  Derek Mickens – Staff Sergeant on Landon’s Special Forces A-Team, he’s ready to drop everything and help his former commandeer when Landon needs it. He’s a medic.

9. Carlos Diaz – Staff Sergeant on Landon’s Special Forces Team, he’s completely loyal to his former commander as well, and would do anything for him. His specialty is communications.

10. Kellen Tredeau – Sergeant First Class on Landon’s Special Forces A-Team. Like the others, he’s loyal to his former commander. His specialty is weapons.

11. Conner Marks – Sergeant First Class in Landon’s Special Forces A-Team, he’s extremely loyal to Landon. Specialty is operations.

12. Jake Deray – Staff Sergeant in Landon’s Special Forces A-Team, he’d also do anything for Landon. His specialty is engineering.

13. Dick Coleman – Deputy Director of the DCO, he’s a spy for certain people on the Congressional Oversight Committee. He doesn’t do field operations. He play politics.


Their attraction is more dangerous than any weapon of mass destruction.

He’s a High-Octane Special Ops Pro

When Special Forces Captain Landon Donovan is chosen for an assignment with the Department of Covert Operations, he’s stunned to find his new partner is a beautiful woman who looks like she couldn’t hurt a fly, much less take down a terrorist.

She’s No Kitten

Ivy Halliwell isn’t your average covert op. Her feline DNA means she can literally bring out the claws when things get dicey. She isn’t thrilled to be paired with yet another military grunt, but Landon is different. He doesn’t think she’s a freak-and he’s smokin’ hot. Soon they’re facing a threat even greater than anyone imagines…and an animal magnetism impossible to ignore.
