Somebody just stole a valuable artifact from the Helsen archives, and Annemette Helsen—a very pissed off werewolf—is going to make sure they pay for it.
There’s just one problem: Anna’s only suspect is the arrogant vampire prince, Jonas Weiss. He’s cocky, frustrating, and a little bit sexy. Okay, a lot sexy.
He also claims to be innocent, so the fact that she just broke into his home and attacked him is problematic.
And his price for keeping silent about the whole debacle? Downright devious.
The short novel you’re about to consume is quick, quirky, and delicious. Get ready to enjoy a main course of romance with a side of adventure. Buckle up, it’s about to get sassy!
Sleuthing with the Enemy can be enjoyed as part of the Unnatural Alliances series or on its own.
Here we are at book 2 of the Unnatural Alliances series. Now, I know the author says that it can be read alone ( and it can be don’t get me wrong) however, I think you need the information from book one to really sink into the full out start of what is sure to be a incredible series.
Book 1 offered you a lot more of a background on the artifact that is stolen and even more of a back story on what the characters refer to as the upcoming war. So for me personally, I’d suggest to you to read the first one.
Now, on to the review. Anna is one force to be reckoned with from page one. However, she’s a bit of a shoot now and ask questions later, which really sets her brothers off LOL. However, sometimes acting on your gut (or your drunken gut) can lead you to exactly where you are meant to be.
Things are tense between the Helsen’s siblings to say the least. Especially with this new theft on their hands. When one of their own staff is injured during the robbery, Anna wants revenge. However, Anders – the eldest of the brothers – wants to do it by the book and involve the Supernatural Authorities (SNAC).
After the Claire – the injured employee – tells her who she swears it was that stole the artifact, Anna sees red. So much so, that she breaks into the Vampire Princes house to get back what is rightfully theirs and maybe kill him in the process.
But a drunken plan is never a plan that pans out the way it should. Anna soon finds herself in a pickle. Either work with Jonas – the extremely sexy vampire prince – or be turned into SNAC and lose the chance of ever becoming a guardian. But worse of all, shaming her family’s name.
It’s this unlikely alliance that leads Anna down a path that she never thought was there to begin with, let alone one she wanted to walk. Jonas is confident, secure, assured of himself and his place in the worlds around them. Anna, well, she’s got some growing up to do in many ways and controlling her emotions is one of them.
Just one problem. She can’t seem to control anything but her wolf in front of Jonas. Everything else is haywire. Falling for a vampire was NEVER going to happen. Anna wouldn’t let it. Only do we truly have control over who we fall in love with.
This book gave you more history on the Helsen’s family and the siblings. I loved Erik and Rune right away, but Anders… I don’t know I was and am still a bit up in the air on. But my favorite part is that we got to meet Benji again! I want more of him and I hope by the end, the author will reveal the enigma that is Benji. I honestly hope he gets his own story LOL.
I loved this story and love this series so far. I can’t wait for more from this author. Can’t wait for the next release for this series.
