Emma has a duty to follow in her father's footsteps and is
ready to do so as the human spy for the Lycan Intelligence
Agency (LIA) as well as continue her work for the CIA. She
is ready to join when the head of Team Graywolf Rylee sends
Nik to pick her up. Soon things become a case of FUR, CLOAK
AND DAGGER that no one could have expected.
Nik, a Russian werewolf, who thought he was the last of his
kind and knows less than nothing of the rules and
regulations of the werewolf society, is reluctant to join
the team. All he wants to do is get his hands on the serial
killer and bring her to justice and if helping out the new
human liaison for his people helps then he is all for it.
They are sent into Siberia to find out who is trying to make
werewolf men and not being very successful leaving bodies as
proof of their insanity. Emma doesn't want Nik around, but he
knows the area, so she is stuck. It isn't that she doesn't
like him ... it's that she likes him too much and she is not
about to become some werewolf's pet. She was raised to be
what she is becoming, and nothing will change that. Working
together on this mission just might be the last one for
either of them as the culprits are closer than expected.
FUR, CLOAK AND DAGGER is a fascinating look back into the author
Eva Gordon's werewolf world. The societal rules and
regulations are strict, but it seems only Rylee can manage to
twist a few rules around without consequences. Emma as a
human knows and understands the rules having been raised to
become this particular spy. Funny how we make plans and fate
just laughs. Nik had been saved by a human and thinking he
was the last of his line lived mostly as a human and feels
these strange rules have no place. They are Cloak and Dagger
, but it is Fur that comes along later and brings intelligence
and wiliness that is needed by the couple and could make a
great addition to LIA. If they all live to get back home.
FUR, CLOAK AND DAGGER is a great read, filled with
intriguing characters in a enthralling world of danger,
mystery and temptation. There are a number of unexpected
events that take place and a number of situations that put
Nik and Emma in danger and have you wondering how they will
possibly get out of it. You will also wonder how a werewolf
and human could possibly be more than teammates. Have no
fear Ms. Gordon weaves her sneaky magic wand to make things
Groomed as the next human spy for the LIA or Lycan
Intelligence Agency, Emma is called to duty earlier than
expected. Head of Team Greywolf, Rylee, dispatches a new
agent to retrieve her. Emma, who also works for the CIA,
agrees to join the team.
Nik, former Russian intelligence, is an unusual werewolf.
spent his entire life with humans, only learning recently
others of his kind existed. After helping Team Greywolf in
recent operation, Nik reluctantly joins the team. His only
goal is to find Saskia, an escaped serial killer from his
last mission, and bring her to justice.
Emma and Nik are assigned a covert mission to find out who
is attempting to create werewolf men, found dead and
mutilated during the failed transformation. Emma and Nik
must put aside their national loyalties and mutual sexual
tension to find the culprit. Their assignment is dangerous,
not only to their lives, but to their hearts.
ExcerptAlone at last, Nik returned to staring. His wolf wanted to
pounce on the beautiful woman as soon as she dismounted,
but heâ€™d play it cool. He would simply ask her if she knew
Emma York and then never see her again. Lycans did not
really approve of human werewolf relationships. Some alphas
like him had dalliances with humans, but his life was too
dangerous, too complicated to risk dating a fragile human.
Still. He smiled. It wouldnâ€™t hurt to get her number for
later. What harm would come from one dinner date? Better
yet, a riding lesson. Her on top.
As she rode by, his heart thumped. His wolf sensed danger.
On the hill above the ring beneath an oak tree, the muzzle
and scope of a rifle aimed straight at the woman.
Unfortunately, the assassin had a clean shot. Even in wolf
form, heâ€™d never reach the assassin in time. Better to
startle the horse.
He growled as the horse neared. The steed panicked and
The assassinâ€™s bullet missed, but the woman fell off.
â€śShit!â€ť She rolled away as a bullet kicked up a dust cloud.
A woman dashed to her side, while a distinguished looking
older man wearing riding breeches calmed her horse.
Nik narrowed his eyes at the assassin on the hill. Gone. Go
after him or protect the woman? He turned to join her. She
sat. Her helmet off, she flipped her brown braid over her
shoulder. She had been the assassinâ€™s target, Emma York,
Ms. H. Code name Cloak, because of her brilliance in
The woman helped her up. â€śAre you hurt?â€ť
Emma wiped off the dust from her pants and glared at Nik.
â€śIâ€™m okay. He just spooked.â€ť
The British woman shook her head. â€śIâ€™ve never seen him
â€śHe rarely spooks, but when he does itâ€™s major,â€ť explained
The older man brought the horse to Emma. â€śThank you, she
needs to get back on.â€ť
The British woman nodded and left.
Nik frowned. â€śItâ€™s not safe to ride.â€ť
Emma sighed as if he had done something completely wrong.
â€śKeep an eye out, I wonâ€™t be more than fifteen minutes.â€ť
Before he could protest about the possibility of her
suffering from some injury or the fact the assassin might
return to finish the job, she mounted the nervous horse and
galloped around the arena. Once calm, she repeated the
â€śAnd who are you?â€ť asked the man.
â€śBullshit. You were here to stop the shooter. You must be
her new asset.â€ť
How much did this man know of his mission? â€śYes. Iâ€™ll be
Nik headed up to the knoll where the sniper had been. If he
hadnâ€™t been so infatuated with her, he might have noticed
the man earlier. He sniffed the area. A human male. He
followed the manâ€™s scent down the hill toward the freeway.
A black car sped away. Damn.
The big handsome werewolf could easily haul her off. No one
escaped a werewolf. Fortunately, her father had taught her
a few tricks. Time to put them to good use. She went into
her room and showered, while he waited in the bar. Probably
drinking vodka. She noticed her phone had a message.
Rylee texted. â€śNik is meeting you at Fireside CafĂ© at three
p.m., but he might be late due to traffic.â€ť
So Dagger was Nik. In her line of work, she trusted no one.
Especially agents who didnâ€™t follow protocol. He saved her
life, but perhaps, he was not the real Nik. Could he be a
double agent for the GRU? Maybe he had an ulterior motive?
Yet, he did a poor job of hiding his Russian accent. She
texted back. Will do.
Emma opened her suitcase and took out the vaporo, aerosol
spray that hid scents from werewolves. She smiled. The
better to get away. Sheâ€™d leave her boots and riding
breeches on the bed to keep her scent in the room. Rylee
might be pissed, but she would only be delayed a day or
two. If the assassin returned to the stables to finish the
job, sheâ€™d be ready. Avoiding Nik so he didnâ€™t interfere
was the problem. Rylee had some nerve sending a newbie
Emma hadnâ€™t earned her nickname Cloak for no reason. She
reached into her suitcase and took out a disguise, that of
an older woman with a cane. Sheâ€™d simply take the elevator
and call a cab. She put on the hairpiece and formed the
latex to her face and looked in the mirror. This should
work. She pulled on some clothes and with the cane, she
moved out into the hallway to the elevators.
