    4 - "Come on Danny. For one night, pretend I'm your princes

    4 - "Come on Danny. For one night, pretend I'm your princess." Stars.

    I really enjoyed Operation: Saving Daniel already being a fan of Nina's contemporary romances, I am happy to say her PNR writing style is just as enjoyable.

    I loved the characters, their development, the pace and the fact that their story initially began a decade ago. This is a pretty quick read, but the story didn't feel rushed. Daniel Melville *Swoons can put his paws on me anytime!

    "Were you always this beautiful? How did I ever walk away?" This is one of those stories that you start looking for a few hours of escapism, and finish knowing it will be a book you are most likely to read again and again.

    "I wanted you to know... I love you. I always loved you."

    Straight onto book 2 of the Melville Sisters series for me!

    This is a love story that was 10 years in the making.. Lissa had a huge crush on Daniel when she was 12, at 18 she seduced him on his 20 Birthday before she left the next day for Africa. Not having confidence in herself or relationships she stays away for 10 years. Now she's back determined to get him out of her system, but his sisters ask for her help to 'fix' him. He's changed...aloof and cold as a robot, with a 'witch-e' scare-e girlfriend...he's not the same Daniel. He was attacked and changed into a werewolf and until his wolf can get stronger he has to play along with those he hates in order to protect his family. Lissa is definitely a complication

    Even with a serious undertone there is a lot of playfull-ness with the characters and a lot of steamy interaction.. . You'll love Lissa and Daniels sisters An enjoyable read.

    I had been hesitant about reading this book and had been putting it off. This is the 3rd book I've read from Nina Croft but the other 2 were contemporaries and I wasn't sure I would like a paranormal. I am totally kicking myself right now. One of the things I really liked about Nina's previous books was her sense of humor and it really made the story for me.

    Lissa and Julia have been friends since before their teens. Lissa had a bad home life and was welcomed into Julia's family fold. She's always had a crush on Julia's only brother but her family life hasn't left her with the best opinion if relationships so she avoids him through her terns.

    Daniel has always been aware of Lissa. He watched her grow up and waited, hoping she'd see him as more than Julia's older brother. On the night of his 20th bday she seduced him knowing she was leaving he country in the morning. He knew she was panicked, and let her go.

    10 years later, Daniel's sisters need her help. Daniel's acting strange and they think he's getting ready to propose to a woman they don't like. His sisters want Lissa to seduce him again. But is it too late?

    Lissa took Daniel's virginity years ago as a birthday gift. The next day she left as she knew she wasn't what he needed in life. Years later she is back because Julie her best friend and Daniel's sister needs her help. While she is ready to settle down with someone she knows she has to help out. Daniel has gotten engaged to a woman his family has dubbed the Evil One and has been acting strange. They think Lissa can get him to change his mind and get to the bottom of what s wrong. What they don't know is Daniel is now a werewolf.  He was turned against his will and must keep away from those he loves to keep them safe. He still cares for Lissa but won't put her at risk. Lissa isn't one to back down from a challenge and will do what ever it takes to help Daniel.




    Lissa is someone who has made it a point in life to help others. It has taken it's toll on her at times but made her stronger than ever in other ways. Even when she gets scared she still takes it in good stride. She cares about Daniel but is afraid to let him know at times. She as Daniel says likes to stir things up. Daniel is brilliant and while he was turned against his will he still does things his own way. He hates having someone watch him all the time and tries his best to hide who he cares about, He shows his true colors around Lissa and you can see the old Daniel. I liked both of them and most of the characters except Sophia. I hated her so bad. She really is The Evil One. 
     
    I really enjoyed this book and couldn't wait to turn to the next page. There is lots of action as Sophia will do anything to keep Daniel in line. I liked the plot and how Daniel tried his best to keep those he cares about safe. You get to see how he and Lissa got together years ago and how each left their mark on each other even back then. They are the perfect couple and Lissa makes sure he knows that. I love one scene in this book so much as she shows lots of guts asking him something. I really hope the author writes more books with these characters also want to see more of them along with Julie and Lissa'a brother. This is an excellent, action packed, romantic paranormal book.

    ten years after Melissa seduced Daniel and ran away afterwards,

    ten years after Melissa seduced Daniel and ran away afterwards, she comes back to finish this chapter in her life and go on. but her best friend, who also happens to be Daniels sister, ask her for help because Daniel changed and is now the total opposite from everything she thought he was before. they know something is wrong and try to help him.

    this book was a bit difficult for me because the tone of it changed through out the book and while I thought at the beginning it is more of a fun book, then it became very dark and at the end it was more of a Paranormal romance than before

    I am not sure I really liked Daniel and I don't know why exactly. he could have been the perfect alpha male hero but something was missing. Lissa was interesting.
    I adored Julia and Lissas brother - and maybe there will be another book here.

    all in all it was a good read with a good but very straight story.

    ***Received from Entangled Publishing for an honest review***

    It isn't often I read a story where the heroine one-night-stands the hero; that idea alone is often interesting enough to explore in a story. That the one-night stand occurred ten years prior is what intrigued me the most about Melissa and Daniel. Ten years is a long time to be apart, to change, to move on.

    In Melissa's case, it isn't necessarily moving on but coming home to a man she loved and ran away from once. Recovering from malaria, she comes home to find that Daniel has not only changed but appears to have moved on as well. The Daniel she knew has disappeared, leaving behind a cold, hard, and cynical man who doesn't want her but seems to need her.

    Once upon a time, Daniel loved Melissa enough to let her go, knowing her need for a little bit of freedom was important to her. Seeing her again ten years later, he knows he hasn't stopped loving her, but he's changed more than she realizes. He won't risk placing her in harm's way so he does what he feels is best: he pushes her away.

    Or tries to.

    Melissa's tenacity is a thing of beauty in this story. She doesn't stop, doesn't give up. She uses her head and follows her heart, putting the pieces together until she has some semblance of an answer to what's wrong with Daniel. In the face of his one true love's stubbornness, Daniel's resolve to keep her at arm's length weakens. This time around, it isn't about the sex between them but the emotional connection they share.

    Daniel's strength in the midst mounting strife is amazing to read about. The control he exudes over his emotions and supernatural powers shows he's not just a protector with the potential to lead, but he's also a man on a mission to right the wrong that forced him into the position he's in now. Being a werewolf might have its advantages but he doesn't care to lose another loved one to the crazed maniac others call Alpha just because he is one.

    An interesting take on rekindled love, the animosity and depravity within a pack, and how one man's stand against the evil that's demanded his submission leads to a happy ever after that's been a long time coming and so very well deserved.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    When I started this book I had a hard time getting into it. It was slow so I put it aside for a few days and then picked it up again. I'm glad I didn't give up on it because after a few chapters it started picking up. I'm a sucker for young love, losing that love, then it comes back when you are older. And of course adding werewolves is a nice touch.

    So just stick it out through the first couple of chapters and you will enjoy this book.

    Review:

    What a great story, I loved every minute of it.

    Ten years ago Lissa seduced Daniel into giving her his virginity, I like that the Author has made the girl the seducer. But then Lissa leaves the next day, leaving behind Daniel and family and friends.

    Ten years later Lissa is recovering from malaria and Daniel's sisters want Lissa to come stay and participate in Operation Save Daniel. I love Daniel's sisters and Lissa they are funny and perfect trying to split up Daniel and Sophia &quot;The Evil One&quot;. Wow, is Sophia Evil with a capital &quot;E&quot;. What Lissa and the sisters do not know is that Daniel was made a werewolf by the local Alpha to find a way to make werewolves immune to silver. Now, the Alpha is crazy and evil too, they made Daniel watch as they tortured and killed one of his sisters. Ms. Croft wrote these baddies perfectly because they are so deranged and evil and totally nonredeemable. Daniel has been keeping the secret of his other life from his family and then the girl who got away, Lissa, comes back and now he must try to push her away to save her. That does not work because there is just too much chemistry between them. So for me the first part of the book is lighter and a little more fun and the second part of the book is action packed with Daniel trying to protect those the loves and he keeps plotting to get rid of the alpha. Without giving away all the plot twists and turns, if you like action and suspense then this is going to be right up your alley.

    This was an excellent book and I hope we see more of these characters in the future, there seems to be things left hanging so we will see...

    Even though the book is about werewolves there is not much paranormal going on.

    Overall this is a good book - very pleasant to read like all of Nina Croft’s books. She is a very talented author and I like her a lot.

    However this book was lacking something. I think it was details. The paranormal world could have been deeper. There was just this one pack of werewolves. I also had the impression that the characters were not well developed. We only get to know the surface of them. Lissa might have been in Africa and that should have given her some depth in character. But it did not because we don’t get to know what she did there, why she went there in the first place and so on. According to Croft Lissa fled to Africa because she was running away from Daniel and her feelings for him. But that can’t be everything in my opinion. If a character does something so potent as going to Africa for ten years it has a lot of potential for a great story. However Nina Croft didn’t quite use the potential. It was the same with the other characters in the book. You get to know the basic background information about them but that’s about it.

    Because of that I didn’t really feel connected with the book. The story was good and also Nina Croft’s style of writing is great. However the book could have been better.

    There was also something missing in the story line.

    [Mind you there will be spoilers from here on!]

    The end was kind of unspectacular. Julia gets scratched by a werewolf and consequently will turn into one. But we never get to know what happens. (Maybe she gets her own book then it would make sense)

    However the sexual chemistry between Lissa and Daniel was great. They couldn’t leave their hands off each other once they were alone.

    This was a little slow to pick up, but once the book got moving

    This was a little slow to pick up, but once the book got moving it was amazing. Daniel, the hero, is rough
    around the edges but eventually comes around. His behavior is in part to the deep secret he keeps and
    I believe in larger part due to the fact that he has meddling sisters.

    Lissa, our heroine, is perfect in every way. She seduced the only man she has ever loved for his birthday and
     then promptly left him.  She comes back into his life after an extended absence, and takes the revealing of Daniels deep secret with
     basically a shrug of the shoulders. It seems she barely flinched before moving into &quot;save Daniel&quot; mode.

    The steam factor in this book is about a B+. It is written in the style of a historical romance without quite making
     it into full erotica. Although it seemed at least once per chapter Daniel and Lissa were constantly going at it.
    This book made me laugh, it made me mad and it made me blush. All signs of a good book.
    This is a story of true love that knows no bounds and is very well written once you get past the first 3 chapters.

    Woowza! What a great story!! Ms. Croft does a brilliant job of crafting a story that keeps you on your toes from beginning to end.

    Lissa is an awesome chick, she is bold and brassy, while still remaining soft and sweet. She really does take things in stride and I loved her friendship with the heroes sisters. He never really stands a chance against them!

    Daniel has a lot to deal with werewolves, keeping his family safe and the girl of his dreams returning. I give him props for trying to keep his distance but when you are dealing with love that generally does not work out.

    This story has plenty of meat on it's bones. It made me laugh and cry and fan my face! Oh la, that is just what I am looking for in my stories! 

    The steam is more mainstream hot and heavy but still very delicious. The foreplay is...well..damn!

    This is my first encounter with Ms Croft but you can bet your sweet bippy I will be looking into her shelves and snagging more!

    BOOK SYNOPSIS








    At eighteen, Melissa seduced her best friend Julia's brother only to run away shortly after. While Daniel was her fairytale prince, Lissa didn’t believe in happy ever afters.




    Ten years and a near death experience later, Lissa is ready for a husband and family. But a cry for help from Julia puts that dream on hold. Daniel is acting weird and he’s about to marry his long term girlfriend—AKA The Evil One. Someone needs to save him.




    Daniel has never stopped loving Lissa. Ten years ago when he gave her a little freedom, he always intended that one day they would be together. Right up until the moment he was bitten by a werewolf. Now, Daniel has to hide what he is. He won’t risk anyone else, especially the woman he loves.




    But Lissa is back. Their attraction is stronger than ever and Lissa is nothing if not tenacious.




    My Thoughts








    The 2nd chance romance scenario is once again front and center and it made me jump at the chance to read this short story that turned out to be lighter in unexpected places and at the same time deeper in meaning in others.




    Daniel is the middle sibling of 5, 4 of whom are girls, and most of his life has been spent in the pursuit of scientific knowledge. Imagine his shock when that became the reason for a werewolf targeting him to join it’s pack and provide a way for their species to become immune to injury or death from silver.




    Lissa was too young ten years ago at 18 to understand what she was walking away from was a once in a lifetime love, now all those years later older and wiser she is ready to put her earlier infatuation for Daniel behind her and find the man who will provide her with the family life she finally yearns for.




    This is a paranormal romance that has characteristics of Beauty and The Beast but on a more believable note. Daniel and Lissa’s relationship is one that has been on the back burner for more than 16 years, as both of them were attracted in their earlier teens without acting upon the feelings until he was 20 and she was 18.




    I found upon them reuniting with each other to be sweet and long overdue, also wanted to take Sophia out of the picture long before she was removed from Daniel’s life!




    It always comes down to a final battle between good and evil, in this case it also came down to a battle between Daniel’s conscience as he was so afraid of becoming the very thing that he was fighting against.




    There is a lot going on that was mentioned almost in passing that can be used in furthering this as a series, especially how things turn out for Daniels sister Julia in the future and Lissas brother Jason as well. Plus it would be really nice to revisit with Daniel and Melissa to see if their dreams for the future had come to pass too!

    A Happy Ever After Tale with Sexy Shifters!   Daniel was Melis

    A Happy Ever After Tale with Sexy Shifters!  


    Daniel was Melissa's best friend's brother; she had been in love with him since she was 12. In an attempt to get him out of her mind, Melissa seduced Daniel the day before she left him. She was gone 10 years but failed miserably at forgetting him. When she caught malaria and almost died, she realized that she didn't want to be alone anymore and wanted a happy ever after with Daniel. Unfortunately, when she returned, she found that Daniel was locked into another relationship... but was he really?




    It took me a bit to get into this but once I did...I didn't want to put it down. So, IF you also think it's a bit slow and confusing at the beginning ... practice a bit patience at the very beginning as it's well worth it! I had to run to the grocery and all I could think of was how a certain someone was going to be saved. I loved Daniel and Melissa... Daniel had so many obstacles to overcome including his overbearing, but loving, sisters! 




    I would recommend this read to anyone who loves a good paranormal. This is the 2nd book I've read by Nina Croft and it won't be the last! 




    Very good! 3.75 stars!

    Melissa was only 18 when she seduced her best friends older brot

    Melissa was only 18 when she seduced her best friends older brother before she went to be a missionary. Then after 10 years of living out of the country she gets a life threatening illness and decides its time to come home for a change. Her best friend Julia convinces her that they need to do something to save Daniel from his current girlfriend Sophia. Julia and her sisters have nicknamed her &quot;The evil one&quot;.

    Melissa comes back and meets with Daniel and agrees something is up with him and then can't deny that the attraction has been there even after not seeing him for 10 years.

    She tries to talk to Daniel and find out what is going on. She doesn't figure it out until she is sucked into his world unwillingly.

    There are a lot of twists and turns in this book as well as some very great romance. You can relate with Melissa wanting to find the one and her &quot;prince charming&quot;. Great read!

    This is an awesome read with bewitching characters, an intriguing plot with some unique and refreshing elements.
    At eighteen, Melissa ran away after seducing her best friend’s brother because she didn’t believe in fairy tales. Ten years later after a call from help from her best friend she returns to find Daniel acting weird and that someone needs to save him from marrying his long term girlfriend- AKA The Evil One.  Daniel never stopped loving Lissa, but he was bitten by a werewolf and to protect his family and her, he has to hide what he is.
    This fast paced and intriguing story keeps the reader well entertained with action suspense, romance and hot &amp; steamy passion. The author paints a vivid picture of the plot with great detail that makes the reader feel as if they are part of the action.  All the characters are strong and compelling and grab the reader’s attention and keeping it to the very end.  
    The attraction Lissa and Daniel feel is combustible and the rocky path they have to travel to be together is full of tensions and adversity they must overcome.  The author conveys the emotions and turmoil with an intensity that engages the reader’s emotions as they follow Lissa and Daniel on their journey.
    I found this to a fantastic read that captures the reader’s imagination and holds on to the very end.  I think Lissa and Daniel make an excellent couple and that the bewitching supporting characters give this book great potential for future books, which is fantastic because I believe the writer is working on the next one, I can’t wait.

    Ten years ago Melissa Jackson seduced Daniel Melville. The next day she left town, but she never forgot him. After her near death experience in Africa, she decides to see him and tell him that she loves him and explain her actions. However, life is never simple. Julia, his sister, asks Lissa to help save Daniel. He's going through life like a robot and to make matters worse he's dating Sophia AKA The Evil One. She knows something is wrong. But what? Now she is a woman with a mission. Can she help Daniel and make him hers? Nina Croft weaves a tale that captures you and keeps you hooked. Lissa and Daniel are wildly passionate but they guard their heart. Nina captures their emotions and their pain. All the characters are well developed and interesting. The story is well plotted and delivers surprise after surprise. I loved the book and I'm hoping that we get to know more about the rest of the cast. I want to know their secrets.

    Melissa also known as Lissa has had a crush on Daniel for as long as she can remember and he's her best friends brother. On his 20th birthday she gives him a present he won't ever forget. Then she's gone for 10 years and when she gets sick, she decided that she's been gone long enough.

Daniel hasn't seen Lissa for 10 years and now isn't a good time for her to be around, so much has changed but he couldn't stay away. Daniel was changed in to a werewolf against his will because he's the best scientist and the leader Ethan wanted a cure so werewolves wouldn't he harmed by sliver. Daniel had to put up with Sophia and a sham of an engagement, even though he can't stand for her to around him. Sophia sees Lissa as a threat and sends her a message through Daniels phone for her to meet him but she doesn't know until to late that it wasn't him.

Lissa doesn't care what Daniel is she loves him no matter what and he loves her. Daniel goes to meet the other wolfs that helped him save Lissa and they want Daniel to challenge Ethan to death. Daniel doesn't know if he can win but he's willing to try, then he finds out that Ethan has he's sister and Lissa and he would do anything to keep them safe. Ethan has hurt Daniels sister by the time he gets there and can see that she will be a wolf as well. Daniel tries to get Lissa to leave but she trying to stay but Daniel doesn't need the distraction. Daniel challenges Ethan and he accepts. They start to battle and he hears Lissa and doesn't understand why she didn't leave but can't do anything about now and takes Ethan down.

    Powerful story!  Although this is a romance story at heart, this book brought about other emotions with its secondary story for me.  First and foremost, I loved the selfless love Daniel and Lissa had for each other.  They were constantly putting the other above their own needs.  Very touching.  I loved the sarcastic and sisterly wit Julia brought to the story.  She was funny (would love her story, maybe with Jason).  Onto the secondary story.  It has been a while where I read a story and felt such animosity towards a character, but Sophia.  I just wanted her gone!  Such evilness in a character can be quite shocking.  Glad to see her part in this book play out the way it did.  Wants of retribution for her character were so strong.  Loved the angst and the romantic feel of the whole book.

    Lissa¿s a great character, a complete package. She¿s smart, she¿

    Lissa’s a great character, a complete package. She’s smart, she’s relatively tough, she’s strong-willed and never once, throughout the course of the book, does she have a “too stupid to live” moment. It could have all too easily ended up that way, but while she’s determined not to run away when Daniel tries to send her away as the dangerous mounts, she’s not incredibly idiotic about it and I appreciate a heroine like that.




    Now for Daniel. Somehow, when reading the description of the book, I completely overlooked a single word: werewolf. I had absolutely no clue (I blanked out the fact that Covet’s contemporary with a paranormal twist line) that there would be any non-human critters roaming around until Daniel’s thinking about how he became a werewolf. Um, oops? It’s great that Daniel wasn’t born a werewolf, and in fact I suspect no one’s really born a werewolf any more, given the notion at the end that werewolves tend to miscarry because they have to change forms in the middle of the month.




    He took what could have been a horrible situation, and he really wasn’t happy about it, and instead worked to better his situation rather than just letting life happen to him. The wolf pack is led by an evil wolf of a man who’s using Daniel’s loyalty and protectiveness toward his family against him to make him use his brain to find some sort of immunity to silver for werewolves. Daniel’s not so happy about that and has formed a plan to challenge the Alpha for leadership when he’s ready.




    And then comes Lissa. He’s never gotten over her after she seduced him on his 20th birthday, though he’s long buried those feelings. She’s never totally gotten over him, and in fact had come back to finally get him out of her system once and for all. Of course life’s never that easy, and there’s the whole werewolf mess to deal with on top of their feelings issue.




    I’ve never wanted a character to die as much as I wanted the villainess in this piece to die (the sister of the wolf who changed Daniel). She poses a huge threat to the two, both emotionally and physically.




    Ultimately, I like the resolution that Ms. Croft brings her hero/heroine to, and think that all the characters got exactly what they deserved in the end. I hope to see other books in this same basic series. After all, there are some new werewolves that could use some mates!




    Thanks again Ms. Croft and Entangled. I love these books!
