Overview

From the USA Today Bestselling Bayou Heat Series comes an all-new sexy, romantic suspense saga...

The Pantera Security League
Six shifters, representing all factions, working deep undercover. They prowl through the gray area between good and evil, willing to do whatever is necessary to protect their pack.


His mission is to find and retrieve the female kept as a sex slave by their enemy's henchman...

Cerviel is trained not to feel and not to get attached. But when he sees the female naked and bruised inside the cage, every instinct he's forced down surges to the surface. Like him, the female is broken and alone in the world. But if he gives in to his raw, possessive nature, his cover will be blown, and danger will befall everyone he protects.

Now that he's found her, he can't let her go...

Five years ago, Hallie was taken from her family, both parents murdered before her eyes. As a child she had been given Pantera blood, and her power is undeniable--especially to the ones who want to use her. Free now, she must go to the Wildlands, a place she knows nothing about, to solve a mystery no one will reveal. Can she put her trust in the male who rescued her? Because he already has her heart.

Don't get fooled. This is a 90 page essay. No where near being worth the cost of $2.99. Ivy is loosing the trust of this faithful reader!

O. M. G. I LOVE the Bayou Heat series by Laura Wright and Alexandra Ivy, but If One Down is any indication, the new Pantera Security League (PSL) 6 series could be even better. It's like seeing a hottie with a motorcycle, then seeing meeting his hotter, sexier, edgier older bad boy friend pull up next to him. Both are HOT but different. It's like having your cake and eating it too. I was hooked on this edgier version of a very familiar world and cast of characters like 2 paragraphs in. I LOVE the format and the edge Wright & Ivy have given these characters. It's like when they choose to be ghosts, it gave them something that made them even more sexy, if that is even possible. I don't know if it was the new writing style/format or the basis of the series, but I thought the writing, characters and story were elevated in One Down. I can't wait to see what the rest of the spinoff series brings. Cerviel embodies the virtue of courage that the angel he took his name from embodies. I am always interested in what would make someone choose to become a ghost and give up personal identity for the greater good. In the case of Cerviel, I think it gave him the courage to move forward, even if he couldn't forgive himself. Hallie was an amazing character, from the moment you meet her, you know she is a fighter and a survivor. You WANT her to be a fighter and a survivor as you get to know her and her story. I feel like this spinoff is a natural progression in the overall Bayou Heat universe. You have to have those ready and willing to work in the gray to fight the kind of war that the Pantera are in. I am sooo looking forwa

This is a really nice little story set slightly separate to the main story line. Cerviel is sent to rescue a female from the clutches of the Pantera's biggest enemy. Hallie has been abducted and kept in the most terrible of conditions, she's been abused in every way imaginable and she she's still fighting to get free. She's a great character, knows her own mind, understands that shes different, just unsure as to why. Along comes Cerviel to the rescue! Cerviel's just what we come to expect from a Pantera male. He's all alpha, sweeps in to rescue Hallie and kicks arse at the same time. I loved how assertive they both were together, I liked that Hallie knows exactly what she wants and doesn't let her terrible experiences cloud that. It's a great addition to this ongoing story. I always love Laura's writing, there a slightly different feel to this novella but I think that's just because it's co-written with Alexandra Ivy instead of them taking turns with each tale. I'm looking forward to the rest of the stories.

Cerviel, a member of The PSL (Pantera Security League), is tasked with rescuing a potential asset to the Pantera. Little does he know, he will be in for the surprise of his life. Hallie is a prisoner with no hope of escape. Until one day a mysterious man appears, apparently to rescue her. With all the abuse she's suffered at the hands of men, will she be able to trust this one? With more than her freedom? This book flows nicely with the rest of the series. The addition of familiar characters helps set the pace. I really enjoyed this book.

Great start to the spin off series featuring the Pantera that exist outside of the normal dynamics of the Pantera world. This series focuses on the Pantera security group (PSL) who operate outside of the normal parameters and as such is part of the darker side that is needed for the Pantera to safely exist and protect their people. This book focuses on Cerviel and Hallie as he rescues her. Cerviel is definitely an alpha who is willing to do what is needed to keep the Pantera safe and Hallie is a fighter who has had to overcome being held in captivity. I really enjoyed this novella length story and looking forward to reading the others to come, another winner from this writing team could not put this story down

I am a HUGE fan of the Bayou Heat series and was so excited to read this first spinoff into a new series! This new series deals with a separate part of the Pantera. They are like the Special Forces of the Pantera -they have to give up their families, friends, and their beloved Wildlands to protect their people. Cerviel has one job - collect an "asset", return it to the Wildlands and await the next assignment. Problem? The asset is beautiful Hallie. She has been kidnapped, abused, traumatized and by all rights should be a broken shell of a woman but she's not. She has fight in her. Cerviel finds the combination of beauty and strength too hard to ignore but his duties forbid him to go further than just collecting Hallie and delivering her to the Wildlands. What will he do when she seems to find him as irresistible as he finds her? Sexy, touching, exciting - love this new series! Keep them coming!

If you like the Pantera series then you're going to love this spin off. I'm completely intrigued by these six shifters because they have given up so much to be the ones that put their lives on the line. Cerviel's latest assignment is going to test everything in him that makes him part of the PSL. What Hallie has suffered at the hands of the enemy makes me want to take them out myself. Luckily for me Cerviel has enough rage to seek justice for the both us. Cerviel never counted on meeting someone like Hallie because she's going to test him and make him feel things he thought he'd never feel. A huge decision looms for Cerviel because his job with PSL may just be in jeopardy. I definitely can't wait for more from the PSL.

ONE DOWN is a spinoff of the Bayou Heat series that introduces readers to 'The Six', and group of elite pantera who a part of the PSL, or Pantera Security League. If you are a fan of Bayou Heat, you will find the same sexy shifters, and hot, hot loving in this series. This series starts out with a bit more of a romantic suspense feel though, which is honestly my favorite genre. This book was a surprise for me, as I didn't know it was coming out, but now that I've read it, I want the next one!

Happy Birthday to me... I did not think it was possible for the duo to improve upon the Pantera series. However, after reading One Down I could not imagine this spin-off not existing. Cerviel and Hallie's short jaunt has everything this reader requires romance, action and of course sexy bits. Can't wait for Two to Go...

I so so loved this book! I love how the Pantera have their own secret mercenaries that work in the gray area of the laws. Cerviel is one of these six operatives. He is sleek, wild, and so very much determined. He is sent on a mission to pick up an asset, who turns out to be Haille. He is just told to go and get her and bring her back. The leaders feel she is one that can help lead them to Benson. However they find out something else about her and they don't know what to do. Haille has been caged and used as a sex slave for the past five years. She has put up with a lot and is a true fighter. She is one character that I just loved. She is feisty, puts up with nothing, very vocal, and gets what she wants, when she wants it. These two connect so fast and you can tell their is tons of respect from each of them for the other. Cerviel has a hurtful past, Haille does too and these two souls are meant to be together. You want them together. They are perfect. I am loving this spin off and I can not wait for more. It looks like we are in for a real treat with this!!

I can not tell you how irritating it is to buy a book only to find it is a short story . What a rip off. Wish I could give this a negative star rating.
