Publisher's Summary

Their existence was a secret the government stumbled upon. In exchange for continued autonomy, the paranormals entered an alliance with the government. Now they are A.L.F.A.: Alpha League Federal Agency, sworn to protect and serve humanity.

Brilliant scientist Melinda Caster has discovered a new strain of the Zika virus that stimulates synaptic growth in embryos, causing neuron development beyond normal human levels. Way beyond, like ESP-levels of cognitive abilities. When the lab is broken into, Melinda realizes that someone has been keeping tabs on her research and wants it for themselves. A happy accident destroys critical data before it can fall into the wrong hands, but unfortunately that makes Melinda and her perfect memory a target.

A.L.F.A sends in jaguar-shifter Agent Parish Hamel to discover who is after the virus and why. The beautiful scientist acts like catnip to his senses and throws his mating instincts into overdrive. And then she disappears along with the only sample of the virus.... Now Parish must canvas the darkest areas of the supernatural underground to rescue Melinda, and what he discovers is beyond a paranormal's worst nightmare.

WOW

Very different, good, steamy , weird in some but so totally different kind of book. It's hard to explain. You just have to read it. Great characters, great narrators. The reason for the 4 stars is because it ended too soon after the conflict or angst part of the story. I hate when authors do that.

Good story!

This book was well written and preformed. The storyline is is fast moving but pretty complex. I think this is best enjoyed when you have the time to pay attention to the details that the author has created for us to enjoy . The characters are well developed and likeable. I look forward to reading the next book.

another interesting paranormal gem

Milly Taiden has a talent in creating paranormal love stories that keep you on the reader/listeners toes.. This was worth the credit/money.

Ok, probably wont finish the series

Neither of the narrators correctly pronounces Uganda. I found it very distracting, which was unfortunate because I was already trying to ignore the fact that the author has clearly never been there.

Weird twist

I won’t spoil it, but the twist halfway through was unexpected and unlike Milly Taiden. I found myself laughing at parts that were supposed to be serious because it was soo far outside of what she writes about typically. Felt out of left field. But still an enjoyable listen with good narrators.

Shifters and Witch Doctors and Demons...eh???

***Caution: spoilers*** I am usually a fan of Milly Taiden. I think her stories are sweet and sexy, fun reads that serve up exactly what I'm looking for when escaping reality. I just found that this one tried to do too much - like WAY too much. There were enough plot lines here for at least three series. The story is of a woman who is a brilliant but standoffish scientist who discovers a rare virus that causes ESP (plot 1). In comes her fated shifter mate who works secretly for the military (plot 2). They discover that demons want the virus (plot 3), are helped by a witch doctor whose grandson happens to be a very convenient character (plot 4). All while fighting her attraction because of past heart ache (plot 5). I really had trouble making it through the last 1/3 of the book, not just because the story took too many wild tangent rides, but also because I found the heroine annoying in her complete inability to be reasonable. Narration was great, but this story needed editing. I still love Milly Taiden, just not Elemental Mating.

Narrators are great but book only okay

I liked the narrators but...
I usually love Millie Taiden's books but this wasn't as good in my opinion.
Melinda to up in your face with the thinking that you either believe what I want and say or I don't like you attitude in the beginning. Hamel is supposedly in a military-tyoe organization but he agrees with everything she says even when she bashes men. I would think he would be more of an alpha type guy especially since he is a shifter. His cat wants to protect and possess her but the man just wants to not ruffle her feathers, so to speak.
Weird things happen in this story that was entertaining to me. I liked the demon world and the extra sensory perception aspects.
I know other people will love this book so I encourage others to give it a try. The book was okay but it just wasn't one that makes me want to read the next book.

Really good book.

I really enjoyed this book, it takes a very unexpectedly turn. For the better. the narrator was wonderful, both of them. If you are a fan of the paranormal you HAVE to check out this book.
