To Mate an Assassin is a wonderful different twist on the norm, usually the guy saves the day but in this we have the women that is the kick butt assassin of the shifter world.
I like the warning that the book gives it says "WARNING Contains an assassin who doesn’t tolerate those who hurt the weak, and a shifter leader determined to unlock his new mate’s repressed emotions—even if that puts his balls at risk. "
Doesn't that just makes you want to get it and read to find out what happens.

Title: To Mate an Assassin
Author: Ceri Grenelle
Publication Date: July 28, 2015
Published by: Samhain Publishing
Genres: Paranormal, Romance
Source: Copy Given by Author and Tour Organizer

ARA'S NOTE:
I've always been a sucker for books with strong and cool female leads. I don't know if it has anything to do with feminism, but I just prefer women who can take care of themselves and not have to be rescued all the time. To Mate an Assassin promises that and a whole lot more. I can only take too much bef

THAT was killer! I have read a lot of shifter books lately but Grenelle’s To Mate an Assassin was unlike any I’ve read before. Well, actually it’s Cymbeline that’s unlike any shifter I’ve encountered before and it’s what made the book absolutely fascinating for me. Without revealing the secret of how she was chosen to be an Incendiary, Cymbeline was born human and trained to be an assassin whose sole purpose was to eliminate those shifters who were deemed dangerous by the Alphar – the leader of ...more

Received a copy of the title in exchange for an honest review; original post can be found at:

It took me a minute to figure out how to get into this book. The terminology of the paranormal sectors and whatnot was something that I had to work through in order to fully understand -- and in the end, I still didn't quite grasp it all, but I put what I didn't get aside.

Cimby (Cymbeline) is a rare breed -- she's an Incendiary, aka the 'bogeyman'. How

She is a weapon to be used by the leader of the North American shifters but her meeting with Alphar Kerrick Masterson rips away everything she was ever taught to believe in this fascinating paranormal romance.

Kerrick already feels the Alphar power tempting his soul and the reader can’t help but get caught up in fiery sparks when Kerrick tries to convince his Incendiary that she belong to him. Emotional turmoil that comes from beliefs being questioned, betrayals and war flow from the pages and ca

I just have to say, the description has it the wrong way around, she was the Incendiary first. She didn't have a P.O Box as a newborn baby...

I feel bad for giving this 2.5 Voodoos, because it's impossible to differentiate the difference between a good 2.5 and a bad 2.5. This is a good 2.5. I liked th

To Mate An Assassin was an exciting new spin on paranormal reading. I enjoy a good paranormal romance and this one gave me a lot. It was full of passion and not just the panty melting kind. It also had an element that I hadn't ever read before, at least not like this. An Incendiary. An assassin, the boogieman of the shifter world. How she came to be was so interesting I wish I could have gotten even more about it in the book because it was neat. I gobbled this book up. I didn't want to stop.

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC but that does not colour my review in any way.
A wonderful new twist for our favourite shifter books.
Cymbeline Kendall is the Incendiary, she has been brought up by trainers and teachers. Never allowed to get attached to anyone, because she might have to kill them at sometime. As the incendiary she works for the most powerful alpha in the USA he is the Alphar. They never meet. He sends the details of the target to her PO.box, she assassinates them and sends t

Well you know that resolution not to impulse buy - well it lasted all of two weeks, but I am glad to say as the first purchase was not bad, not bad at all. I am not sure though if my 4 stars is a reflection of relief or a great read but anyway here goes nothing...

For lovers of Ilona Andrews and Shelly Laurenston here might be your next book and author for you to follow, a nice light fun read, though the start of this new series seems to begin with a stand alone book for our first couple, which I

Kerrick is just an alpha male, who wants to keep his mate safe. Cymbeline on the otherhand was trained to be an emotionless killer. They somehow manage to find a middleground and make it work between them. Evan is such an adorable thing.

Ceri is the author of quirky and sexy contemporary romance novels. She has a major weakness for sappy cuddle moments as much as hot and steamy sex scenes, and a penchant for writing snappy and sarcastic dialogue. She loves romance that isn't afraid to be awkward and uncouth, and thrives on flawed characters with big hearts.

Ceri is a New York native living in California with her two cats, Mercy an
