Her Dark Half is another game changer for Author Paige Tyler’s X-Ops series.

Ex-CIA Agent Alina Bosch has made a career of ferreting out crooked agents.  A tragedy hardened Alina and turned her into a skeptical person.  Alina’s new job at the Department of Covert Operations is much the same.  Her boss wants her to spy on her new partner.  Coyote shifter Trevor Maxwell is on the hunt for a killer.  A killer within the DCO’s upper echelon.  The last complication he needs is a new partner.

Her Dark Half is an exciting paranormal romance.  Trevor and Alina are filled with doubts but they are soon overtaken by their heady attraction.  As the X-Ops world gets bigger and more complex it makes the characters more tightknit.  Tyler keeps the story strong by including most of the previous characters in current storylines.  I like getting a front row seat in the lives of my favorite characters.  Tyler is amazing at keeping these past characters carefully woven into the current storyline.  Whereas, in most novels past characters pop in with simple updates but Tyler keeps her characters in the middle of the action.  The X-Ops characters are always intriguing, multi-layered, humorous and oh so sexy! Her Dark Half is a fast-paced thrill ride.  It left me breathless from the beginning.  I love that Alina is such a badass character.  Her serious demeanor is the perfect pairing with Trevor’s devil-may-care attitude.

Master thief Dreya Clark has landed in a mess she may not be able to get out of.  Instead of dealing with her usual sexy detective she is thrust into a world that might just get her killed.  But if she wants to remain “free” she must use her talents as an agent for the Department of Covert Operations.

Detective Braden Hayes has been chasing Dreya’s tail for a while now and he isn’t going to let her slip through his fingers.  He’s not about to let two goons he doesn’t trust take her from him.  What Braden doesn’t realize is Dreya’s a feline shifter and his world is about to get much bigger and scarier.  Braden soon finds himself a member of the DCO and partnered with Dreya.  Will the former enemies find a way to work together before the danger lurking in the shadows finds them?

Her True Match can be read as a standalone but I recommend reading the series in order for maximum enjoyment.

Dreya and Braden first appear in Her Rogue Alpha.  I completely fell in love with them both while reading that story.  It’s impossible not to fall for spunky thief Dreya as she steals something precious from the evil Thomas Thorn or the tenacious Detective Hayes as he hunts her down.

The conspiracies grow as Author Paige Tyler takes us back into the X-Ops world with Her True Match.

Tyler continues to give her readers impressive characters to love and root for.  Dreya and Braden are the first couple that has been pulled into the DCO.  In previous books one of the characters is usually already affiliated with the DCO.  I enjoyed this fresh change in dynamics.  Both characters were forced to learn everything about each other and their new world together.  I love how Dreya and Braden support each other as they maneuver their new world.

Tyler gives us another strong story featuring intense action and compelling characters…oh and she brings the sizzle as always.  Ms. Tyler is lucky I love Dreya and Braden so much that I’m willing to forgive her for the OMG cliffhanger at the end!  It’s a doozy folks you’ve been forewarned.

If you love exceptional paranormal romance then Tyler’s Her True Match is for you.



HER FIERCE WARRIOR by Paige TylerHer Fierce Warrior by Paige Tyler

Minka Pajari is running for her life. She doesn’t know where she is or where to go.  She’s scared of everyone and herself because now she is different.  Scientists have done something to her and she cannot control it.


Angelo Rios and his team of Special Forces soldiers come across a fracas and discover a mysterious woman with animal life features defending herself.  Angelo shares an immediate connection with her and it turns out he is the only one that can calm Minka.

Angelo recognizes what is going on with Minka and knows who to call.  As the Department of Covert Operations and Angelo try to help Minka danger stalks closely. Can Minka learn to live and adapt to her new life or will she succumb to the menace surrounding her?


Her Fierce Warrior is Freaking Awesome!  I love, love, love this couple and the storyline.  Paige Tyler is a master at paranormal suspense! Her werewolves are simply irresistible. Minka Pajari has been through hell but she has finally found a safe haven in the arms of Special Forces soldier Angelo Rios. Phew…Angelo is my kind of man!  He is the perfect hero for Minka.  Her journey throughout the novel is powerful and thrilling.


While Her Fierce Warrior can be read as a stand-alone novel I don’t recommend it.  Tyler’s X-OPS series so exciting and the amazing world building continues in all of the books.  For instance some of Minka’s story is tied to things that happened in book one, Her Perfect Mate.  This is one of the things that I really love about Her Fierce Warrior and the series.  I just adore when more secrets are spilled J


Her Fierce Warrior is overflowing with sublime passion and gritty suspense. The only downside is the fact that it was over too soon and now I’m forced to wait for the next book in the X-OPS series.

Declan McBride is a bear shifter that has yet to embrace his shifter side.  He works for the Department of Covert Ops using his skills to serve the government.  His latest mission takes him and a team to the jungle of Costa Rica.  Declan didn’t count on one of his teammates being the beautiful Kendra Carlson.


Kendra has been with the DCO for years and is finally going out in the field after rigorous training.  She is looking forward to the operation in Costa Rica but never counted on being chased by an army of hybrid shifters.


When Declan and Kendra get separated from their team they must fight to survive and deal with their underlying feelings for each other! They both will have to push themselves to the limit if they’re going to get out of the jungle alive.


Paige Tyler’s Her Wild Hero is explosive, action-packed romantic excellence! I swear I felt like I was in the middle of a theater watching a summer blockbuster as Her Wild Hero took me for a wild, exhilarating ride.  Ms. Tyler is crafty with her pen as she makes the reader fall in love with two characters as they are right in the middle of a death-defying journey.


Declan and Kendra have been my favorite characters since book one in the X-Ops series, Her Perfect Mate.  Declan is such a teddy bear, pun intended J.  He has been in love with Kendra since they met but she has been hard to pin down.  Kendra is a smart character with a huge heart.  She has been good at pairing other people but always going after the wrong guy herself.  Finally, these two must spend some quality time together.  It is a shame they are doing it under fire in the middle of the jungle but it does heighten the sexual tension and add more drama to this fantastic novel.


Her Wild Hero will leave you wanting more of Tyler’s X-Ops!

JoyfullyRecommendedFBI Special Agent Danica Beckett walked away from the man she loved years ago to save his life.  She comforts herself in her work but has been unable to move on.  When grisly murders land in her territory she must reach out for help from her old boss.  Danica’s history with shifters tells her the killer is a shifter and more dangerous than her and her new partner can handle.  She asked for help but she never expected to see the man who holds her heart to walk back into her life.


The absolute last thing shifter Clayne Buchanan wants is to work with the woman who broke his heart into a million pieces.  However, orders are orders and if a shifter murderer needs to be put down he is the man for the job.  Clayne just didn’t counted on the difficult time he would have being so close to the woman that got away.


A killer wants to play a game of cat and mouse with the feds.  He stalks his prey lasciviously taunting Danica and Clayne.  Once again, Danica and Clayne must work together or find themselves on the wrong end of a shifter’s claws.  Will their passion reignite or will a killer get to them first?


Paige Tyler gets an A+ for Her Lone Wolf and the X-Ops series.  Tyler infuses sexy romance with an outstanding plot and characters that leave you wanting more in Her Lone Wolf.  I could not wait to find out about the woman that Clayne was meant to be with.  Clayne definitely stood out in the first X-Ops series book, Her Perfect Mate.  He is a very passionate and wild character and that side of him came out a lot in Her Lone Wolf.


The second Clayne and Danica are on the pages together the reader can feel the intensity between them.  It is electric and I couldn’t help but smile with anticipation. There are some ghastly scenes in the novel but they bring the suspense and keep the reader guessing.  Clayne and Danica really are the perfect team.  They have such chemistry, it’s as if they would not be complete without each other.


Her Lone Wolf’s murder mystery is first rate but it’s the emotion that Tyler weaves into the story that makes it unforgettable.  I found myself swept up not only in the relationship between Clayne and Danica but the other characters as well.  With characters like these it’s impossible not to fall in love with them all and keep coming back for more.


Her Lone Wolf is must read romance!



Special Forces Captain Landon Donovan isn’t exactly happy when he is pulled away from his team in the middle of a mission for a secret assignment.  When he learns he is to be teamed up with a woman he finds sexy as sin, he feels a little better about this assignment. After seeing the beautyContinue Reading
