Description from the publisher:
A woman with a secret…
The Federal Paranormal Unit is an elite squad of supernaturals dedicated to solving missing persons cases. Erica’s gift allows her a special connection with the crime, but it comes at a deep personal cost… Until now, she’s kept her gift a secret, even from the other members of the team. But this case will throw her together with Agent Trent Buchanan. He’s the object of her secret desires, but he’s also a cocky womanizer. She’d rather swim in shark-infested waters with a paper cut than admit she has feelings for him.

A man with one desire…
Wolf Shifter Trent wants Erica more than he’s ever wanted any woman. He’s spent years patiently waiting for her to admit that she wants him too. Working one-on-one in a race to find a serial killer, Trent’s patience and Erica’s resolve wear thin. When Trent discovers the truth about Erica, will he accept her for who she is? And can he protect her from the horrors that her gift brings?

A case that pushes them to the edge…
Erica will have to risk it all if she wants to stop the killer, and when she does, Trent may have to put his own life on the line to make sure his mate is protected…


This is the first book in the Federal Paranormal Unit series.  They do need to be read in order.

I was confused during the first few chapters just because people were sometimes called by their first names and sometimes by their last.  So I’m going to give you a list of the team members:

James Brock – team leader – I think he’s fae, but we’re not told in this book
Erica Villa – profiler – energy reader/psychic
Trent Buchanan – agent – wolf shifter
Jane Donovan – team techie – her brand of “other” isn’t identified in this book
Tony Ramirez – agent – white tiger shifter

There, now that that is taken care of, I’ll tell you it was worth the confusion.  This team of paranormals is an elite team in the FBI, usually working missing person cases.  This time, they’ve been called in on a murder, knowing that another young woman is still missing.  Erica has been fighting her feelings for Trent since the day they met.  The same day that Trent knew that she was his Mate.  Now they are leading the team while Brock is handling the more political aspects for their superiors. 

I loved this story from beginning to end.  From the first sentence, the sexual tension between Erica and Trent jumps off the page (screen) and it never stops.  Trent may have known for years that Erica is his Mate, but he has been biding his time and letting her get to know him.  Too bad she’s picked up on his past a little too well.  She thinks he is just another Casanova and wants her as another notch on his bedpost.  When the timing is finally right, he is there for her - just there.  There is nothing better for one person to do for another.  That breaks down her walls faster than any romantic gesture or posturing ever could.

I have read several of Ms. Taiden’s other books from her Scent of a Mate series and I have seriously loved every one of them.  Ms. Taiden’s ladies are real women with curves that are appreciated by her hot men.  All of her characters are real – great at some things, good at some things, and yet flawed in some aspects – just like real people.  I will always read a Milly Taiden book when it’s available.
