The story much lighter than I expected but it was a good start for a new series.
I can’t wait for Amber’s story now! ❤

I can’t wait for this one ❤

I found out about Valkyrie girls after I read Briar’s story Disavowed.
I loved it so much, and I asked Ms. Cross on twitter if she will write the story of other girls too and she said she will think about it, but then last month I found out she will write this series, so yay for us who love bad ass girls! 😘

Btw, I highly recommend read Disav

WOW! A fantastic start to this series! I loved that it's bada*s women who are the special op focus.

I loved watching Megan learn to trust, not just a man, but to trust her sister Valkyries. Megan and Ty were awesome together. There was the perfect balance of romance and suspense :)

I can not wait for the next one!

I hate to do it because I love Ms. Cross' other books. This one started out with one heroine and then the book is about a different one. Plus the bad guy...I just don't get it. Plus is was slow and boring.

Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) provided by the Author and Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an fair and honest review.

I've read a few series where the plot arches over several books and that is what we have here. You get a hot romantic couple and bits and pieces of the suspense plot. It works great here and I look forward to reading the other books. Megan is a powerful heroine and Tyler is her match in every way. The plot revolves around the Valkyries, a group of female special operatives who

😑 throughout this book I felt like i was missing some vital part of the story. I didn’t realize till the very end where the author lists her previous books that although this book is book 1 in a series the story arc seems to be a continuation from a previous series I haven’t read. I don’t believe this book is a standalone & have no plans to continue the series.

This is the first book I have read by this author, an action-packed romance with deadly femme fatales; it’s going to be a great rollercoaster thrill ride this one.

When Megan, a Valkyrie operative trained by the government, finds herself back in the game, little did she know that the man assigned to be her partner is somebody from her past. Megan was trained to be the best in her field by a covert military group, and that soon becomes h

Sizzling romantic suspense…

Where do I start counting the ways I loved this story? Always a good place to begin is the chemistry – and Megan and Tyler had it! To say their previous encounter was a colossal foo-bar is a wild understatement. Megan was wary and rightly so as any trust she may have had for him was long, long gone. Tyler was not happy about their past – he hadn’t had all the information - which may have changed the outcome. Starting with such a huge deficit meant their do or die missi

A super-secret government program taking orphaned young girls and turning them into black-ops assassins is the basis for Kaylea Cross’s new Valkyrie series.

Having graced graced the pages of her books from time to time, there’s a particular mould that these women seem to fit: doing all that it takes to get the job done, staying solitary, emotionless and distrustful while they’re at it. So similar are they, that it feels like a calculated risk that Cross takes as she finally puts all of them in t

Stealing Vengeance is the first in a new series, Vengeance . There is all the action and suspense I expect from a Kaylea Cross book, plus a romance.  It's a bit of an enemies to lovers but there isn't much hate; that's quickly in the past.

Stealing Vengeance the first book in Kaylea Cross's new Vengeance series, which features the girls from the Valkyrie program was a great read. That grabbed me from the start and never let go. Thanks to plenty of action, great characters, both old and new and a storyline that was fast paced and exciting to read. And I'm really looking forward to reading more from this series in the future, and I would happily recommend it to others, especially to anyone who is a fan of Elaine Levine's Red Tea

First, I just have to say . . . . AHHHHHH I am so so excited for this series, especially now that I read book one! The entire concept of a secret government agency that takes orphaned girls and turns them into assassins and weapons is a super cool concept and creates one heck of a crazy sisterhood. But, the Valkyries have been disbanded and someone is hunting them so they can’t reveal the truth about the secret government program.

When Megan realizes the program has been exposed, she goes into hi

Stealing Vengeance is book one in Kaylea Cross’ new Vengeance series. This series centers around the group of Valkyries that are girls that are trained by the US government to be covert operators. The program was supposed to have been shut down...but it’s coming to light that it wasn’t. Now someone is trying to take the remaining Valkyries out...permanently. Since this is the first book in the series, it’s obviously a standalone book. But the remaining titles will not be as the backstory will co ...more

The idea of super soldiers has been around for a while now, on both TV shows like NCIS and in fictional books. What makes Stealing Vengeance (Valkyrie Vengeance #1) by Kaylea Cross stand out is that these operatives are women. Pretty clever for a government to use women instead of the traditional male soldier. Not exactly legal either for orphaned little girls to be taken, severely trained with specific skill sets, then give them one mindset, “Loyal Unto Death.”

Excellent storytelling that bring

I did feel a wee bit lost at the start of this book. I hadn't read any of the books featuring the other Valkyrie's (Trinity, Briar, etc) so I was a bit on the backfoot. However, I was caught up in no time and it certainly didn't detract from my enjoyment of the book.

Megan and her fellow Valkyries were shot down in flames by the government. After they were left out to fend for themselves, she went into hiding with a former ally in England. But now there are others hunting for her. They say they a

I blame BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER—the movie, starring Kristy Swanson—for my fascination with strong women who can kick butts with ease, fluffy white prom dress or no. *This is also a case of living vicariously, because I would be the first to go down in any kind of feats of strength competition, & also the first to die in a zombie apocalypse.

A new series that will have you on the edge of your seat, or keep you up all night reading.

This book opens with an introduction of sorts. Trinity, Georgia and Briar are three of the original Valkyries, they are now 'retired' but a situation has come up requiring their special skills. Their boss Alex Rycroft is coordinating the operation to find a very skilled hacker who has put all of them in jeopardy. This is going to require more than just them since the fact that they work alone would give th

The Valkyrie are under attack and we don’t know why. All we know is bodies of these elite warriors keep popping up. Megan is hand selected for the job of figuring out what’s going on. A job she is more than willing to do except for one small problem. She’s never had to work as a team before. The ones behind the mission chose Ty as her partner, a man she has a small past with.

Stealing Vengeance, Book 1 in the newest series by Kaylea Cross is full of action packed scenes with twist and turns that had me guessing on who to believe. What really drew me to this book, besides being written by this author, was the premise of taking orphaned girls and turning them into these fierce warrior women who got the job done. The main characters in this book, Meg and Tyler has history, where one side feels betrayed and the other remorse. They are now working together on a common goa ...more

The blurb of this intrigued me a lot and I like the Valkyrie concept. It was fast paced and exciting. Megan was pretty cool and capable, pretty bad ass. She and Tyler had a complicated past that made their first interactions awkward. As they continued working together it got better and they were a good team.

Ty and Megan have some sparks going on. It's just a matter of Megan accepting it and trusting. Something she didn't have growing up. With their discovery of the past being distorted too. I ha

Megan was recruited into the Valkyrie Program, a secret government team, where the members undergo intensive training and are basically made into lethal weapons. Their motto is Loyal Until Death so when the members are being targeted there is nothing that Megan won’t do to find out who is behind it and put an end to it even if it means working with a man that betrayed her in the past.

Tyler is ex-military and regrets what happened between him and Megan and will do anything to make it right. He wi
