Her Perfect Mate is the first full length novel in Paige Tyler's X-OPS series. I would suggest reading these books in order, starting with the prequel to the series, Her Secret Agent.

Landon Donovan would never desert his team or abandon a mission. They were Special Forces, and they had gotten their target in their sights - when he got a direct order. He was to abandon the mission, and desert his team. At least that was what it felt like. He was shipped off to the wilds of Washington, DC, where he learned he had been hand selected to work for the Department of Covert Operations. And he was to be given a new partner.

Ivy Halliwell had already been through two partners, and she did not want this new one. Why did the DCO keep thinking that one of the military mighty made great team members? But Landon quickly proved he wasn't similar to his predecessors. He handled everything she lobbed at him, and when she flashed claws, he simply, and politely, asked that she be careful. What was even more amazing was as they started to make perfect partners for dangerous missions, they discovered they might make even better partners in a more intimate setting.

Her Perfect Mate was a sexy, entertaining action filled read. Ivy was a fascinating heroine who obviously has trust issues when it comes to finding new partners, but Landon is the perfect partner, and hero, for her. It was intriguing to see the inner workings of the DCO that was only hinted at in the prequel to the series, Her Secret Agent. The extended cast of characters were fascinating, and I am eager to see them with their own stories.
