Overview

All the power and killer instinct she possess can't protect her from the claiming of one determined wolf.

They call her ‘The woman in white,' whisper ‘Death-Bringer' with their last breath, but no one knows exactly what she is. Not even Voltaire herself. The deadly magic within her is a living thing, able to crush anyone and everything with a blink. Abandoning the blood-soaked world she's used to, Voltaire seeks out the one constant in her tired life-the green-eyed wolf in her dreams. She's ignored the wolf's call for years, afraid to surrender, but danger haunts her mate. He needs her.

Wolf-shifter Blake Montez is in the middle of a war, battling the usurpers intent on taking over his territory. Unfamiliar magic hums in the air, unnoticed—it seems—by everyone but him. He finds the source already under his nose, in his home. The delicate woman in white knows things no one should know, and the heat simmering between them is unlike anything he's ever felt. His wolf recognises her as his mate, though Blake remains unsure he can trust her.

Voltaire sets out to prove herself with time running out. Enemies are on the prowl, some foreseen, others remaining cloaked in shadow. She and Blake team up, fighting side by side, but in the end Voltaire might be the biggest threat to their love.

Read an Excerpt

"Will you fucking die already?" Voltaire pressed the right heel of her gold Zanotti’s into the bullet hole in the man’s neck. The idiot keeping her from her date struggled—a futile effort, if she did say so herself. His cobalt-blue eyes stared up at her from his position on the floor, pleading for mercy while his body twitched. Wet sounds gurgled in his throat, then he coughed. Dark red blood flew everywhere, dotting the back of her heel and running like a red stream down the corner of his mouth. Pink tears leaked from his eyes.

"Damn it, now look what you’ve done." She lifted her foot off his throat to inspect the damage to her shoe. "I bought these today, specially for this occasion, and you go and fuck them up."

Men. Can’t train them, or horsewhip them in the middle of the street. What the hell is there left to do? Kill ‘em.

She knelt beside the man, who was getting bluer by the minute, and shook her head. "You know, that colour does great things for your skin tone." She grabbed the sleeve of his white shirt and wiped off her heel. Blood pooled under him, sinking into the plush, grey carpet. She glanced up at the digital clock on his desk. He had some fabulous things in this office—she’d take a tour of the house if she wasn’t so damned strapped for time.

Hah, strapped.

A dull buzzing started on the left side of her skull, annoying as a mosquito.

"Will you stop already with the fucking mind control? You’ve been trying it all night, and has it worked?" She lifted an eyebrow and projected her thoughts to him. Obviously not. You pissed off the Council and they’ve marked you for extinction. She bared her teeth. "Unfortunately for you, they gave you to me as a going away gift."

Tugging the bowie knife from her ankle strap, she slashed his throat with a flick of her wrist.

"That’s for taking up so much of my goddamn time."

She fished the disposable cell phone from the back pocket of her jeans and pulled off her black gloves with her teeth. Hitting the redial button, she straightened and stepped delicately over the body on her way to the door.

"Yes?"

"It’s done."

Voltaire paused at the threshold and took one last look over her shoulder to admire her handiwork. Damn, sometimes she astonished even herself. The married father of four hadn’t batted an eye when she’d sent him a drink at the bar then offered herself to him for the night. She gave him bonus points for not taking her to his marital home. Apparently Mr Moneybags kept an apartment downtown for his nightly hook-ups.

Fucking men. Is nothing sacred anymore? Sure, she’d been paid a couple of mil to kill him, but still.

    This is the first book of the Paranormal Security Council Series

    This is the first book of the Paranormal Security Council Series. Voltaire is a Paranormal with strong powers, yet she doesn’t even know what she is.  She has been haunted of dreams of a werewolf and knows what it means but doesn’t really want to be tied to a mate. She realizes her mate is now in trouble so she goes and finds him. Blake her mate is in the middle of a war. When she shows up he recognizes her as his mate but not knowing what she is or why she shows up at such a critical time isn’t sure he can trust her.  Do they get together? What is Voltaire? I am not gonna tell you! You will have to read the book. Trust me you will thank me for this one!
      If you like books about werewolves, soul mates, other new types of paranormal beings, a deep mystery, and lots of action, this has the best of both worlds rolled up and threw into a mystery with lots of action. Well written and fast paced you won’t want to put it down until you are finished. 
    I highly recommend this to anyone that likes shifter, werewolves, action, new types of paranormal and hot sex!

    Ok I have to say once again Avril Ashton is off the chain good. This book kept my attention from the first page till the last. Entrancing and sexy characters who you fall in love with immediately. Action packed from page one.

    Voltaire is a volatile character, but you can also sense the vulnerability in her and you want her to succeed in whatever she does. With the mouth of a sailor, ash white hair and a blue and a gold eye she casts a beautiful figure of a woman. Though what kind of being she is, isn’t quite understood by her or anyone else for that matter. Her psychic abilities are nothing to sneeze at either.

    Blake wow what can I say about him. He is one sexy shifter wolf male that cares deeply for those he wishes to protect and that comes to include Voltaire even though he doesn’t trust her. But even with the mistrust Blake is drawn to Voltaire and cannot help himself when it comes to claiming her as his own true mate.

    The plot is well developed and keeps one guessing as to what will happen next. A book with a heroine that can kick butt and in heels no less has my vote as one great read. Filled with exciting twists and turns

    Voltaire and Blake both have Alpha tendencies and it makes for a on your toes exciting read as you wonder whom will give in to whom. A very believable love story. Once more proving to the naysayers that you can have erotica and romance in the same book. Would I get an Avril Ashton book again? The answer is a big sounding Yes! She never disappoints. Her stories are always sexy, gritty, dark, fun, loving and erotic all the things one wants in an erotic romance paranormal. And the urban humor in her stories make it seem down to earth and realistic. This book is steamy, sexy and filled with those moments that will have you sighing or catching your breath. Cheers to Avril Ashton, she has made me smile yet again.
