Her Fierce Warrior by Paige Tyler is the fourth book in the X-Ops series, sixth if you count the novellas in between the other books. The only other one I have read was Her Wild Hero. like many other romance series, having read the whole series gives you a better grasp of the big picture and the characters, but you can still enjoy each book on their own.
Minka isn't sure she should trust the sexy Special Forces soldier who found her. Subjected to horrors, on the run from scientists set on locking her in a cage, Minka is terrified of the monster she's becoming. However, Angelo is the only one who can calm the beast inside her and make her feel safe. But can she trust the way he makes her feel when she's not even sure she can trust herself? Angelo is a soldier that has seen some crazy things, and knows what toll the military way of life can have on everyone involved. When he finds Minka in bad shape, scared and out of control, he does everything to keep her safe. However, he is worried he might cause more damage than the doctors or others that he is trying to protect her from.
Her Fierce Warrior was another emotional paranormal romance from Tyler. The Prologue gives readers a good look at Angelo's mindset, and why he avoids attachments. Minka has managed to escape the doctors that torture and experiment on people in an effort to make hybrids (super soldiers with animal traits). After escaping she needs to get to a safe place, figure out how to control her new abilities, and come to terms with everything that has been done to her. None of this happens until Angelo and his team find her, and get her to safety. The larger plot of the series (who is behind the experiments) and the less scrupulous people n their own department play a big part in the story- and in the relationships between several of the characters that feature in this installment. I like that even the toughest characters have a vulnerable side, and the loyalty and compassion that the main players have. Even with a large amount of character development and emotional catharsis, there is plenty of action and drama here as well. Knowing the bigger picture of the series will definitely make part of the book more important and dramatic, newcomers to the series will find themselves fully immersed in the world and discovering the ins and outs right along side Minka. My only real gripe about the book was that the happy-ever-after was a little out of left field, and not because of the effort of the characters themselves. I would much rather have seen action or a decision made by the people ion the relationship.
