Publisher's Summary

Operative: Wheeler Summerbee 

He’s solid as a rock....

Former Immortal Ops Agent Wheeler Summersbee has spent most of his life on the run from his own government. When he’d agreed to be a living test subject in their quest to genetically engineer the perfect super-soldiers, he never dreamed he’d come out the other side of the testing a gargoyle-vampire hybrid who craved blood and had a serious allergy to sunlight. But that’s what happened. So, when he finds himself trapped in what feels like eternal darkness, encased in stone, with the prospect of never being free again, he abandons all hope. That is, until he hears the melodic voice of a mysterious woman he’s sure is a goddess. Could it be she’s his someone special? His perfect match? His mate? 

She’s small, but her will is mighty....

Samantha has finally landed her dream job and is putting the finishing touches on an upcoming gallery showing, when everything that can go wrong does. There is a delivery mix up which leaves her with a very lifelike, not to mention a very life-sized, stone statue of a hunky dude who’s jeans aren’t quite buttoned all the way and who’s rippling six-pack are on display for all the world to see. And while she has to hand it to the artist for sculpting the most delicious looking man she’s ever seen, the giant statue is not the one she needs to make the gallery showing a success. When a bunch of heavily armed bad guys storm into the gallery, threatening her and the statue of all things, she learns there is a whole lot more to the art piece than just rock hard abs. 

Fate’s special delivery has left these two potential lovebirds fighting for their lives in a race against The Corporation. Can they outwit and outmuscle the bad guys, or is their budding new romance at risk of never reaching its final destination?

Absolutely Loved!

I swallowed the hook with this book. It had heat and humor with some danger with baddies mixed it. When Sammy first sees Wheeler, he is hard a stone. Ok he is still in frozen in stone. No one has been able to reverse the magic that left him frozen. Sammy is frustrated that the wrong statue was delivered. Well, this statue she wants to climb. We know there is a HEA so unfreezing must happen. (Snicker) Another mighty Alpha has fallen. Sammy is more than human, she just doesn't know how much. She is very stubborn and just what Wheeler needs.
Bill is up to his usual antics. So, be careful if you decide to drink while reading.
The Corporation wants Wheeler for testing. How far will they go?

I both read and listened to this book. The audio brought it to life and I picked up on things missed while reading. The narrator was amazing

Absolutely loved it

Operative: Wheeler Summerbee

When the government approached Wheeler Summerbee with an opportunity to help serve his country at an even deeper level, he jumped at the chance. Little did he know he'd end up a creature of the night with a thirst for blood or that he had ties to gargoyles. Heck, he didn't even know gargoyles and vampires were real prior to the Immortal Ops genetic testing he endured. And he surely didn't know he'd end up a fugitive, on the run from his own government, or to be turned to stone.

Oh my Gosh!!!
I laughed and i cried and i wanted to throw things to people!
Wheelers book is simply awesome!
The chemistry he has with Sammy is freaking amazing and i love them!
I love the fact that Mandy M Roth does her character so real that it feels like i am returning home to see my family and friends each time i read one of her books.
I really can't wait to read more about more of the amazing characters and truthfully i can't wait for Gus and Bill to get their own books.
The narrator is simply amazing!!!!

What a fantastic read!

I truly enjoyed Out of the Dark by Mandy M Roth, it is a top notch listen! As is her signature it comes alive into its own funny, irreverent yet utterly serious world that makes for an incredible armchair getaway! The narrator is perfect, he pulls off every voice to make them each unique even for both feminine and masculine. I loved it an I'm going to dig in for another listen! Thank you!

So good!

I had read this book and then I got the chance to listen to it. Mandy has such great characters that it is always a treat. I love Wheeler and Sammy. She's no shrinking violet and of course he's an alpha soldier. There is lots of action in this from beginning to end and it keeps moving. I still think Bill and Gus are just hilarious.

Surprise I'm a gargoyle.

Wheeler and Sammy

5's across the board-Narration, story, overall. The narrator had his work cut out for him with all the different accents and did a great job. I loved the audio-somehow Bill is even funnier hearing him and after seeing a reader's concept of him I kept seeing him every time I heard his voice. Oh, look for the little man's heroic moves in this one.

Sammy was stuck with a giant stone statue of a really hot guy when she should have had a small sculpture to set up for the art show. With no one to help her what was she gonna do. The movers just left him--it--there. Suddenly she was falling and bleeding and some bad guys showed up.

So begins her introduction into the paranormal world--vampires, gargoyles, shifters, and some just crazy guys. Oh, yeah, her friend had discussed mates with her. Is she going to learn more up close and personal?

Wheeler had a problem. He was the stone statue and couldn't turn back. The Ops guys want to help and are working on it. Will they be on time before the really bad guys step in?

For ops fans, our comic relief guys are back in the form of PNR and humans. The author never fails to give us hilarious situations along with supervillains, hot PNR guys, and their women who are often PNR as well. Oh, and plenty of steam. As a fan of gargoyles, I loved this one even more than usual. I recommend it to new readers and old fans alike.

Such a good story from beginning to end. I didn’t want it to end. The entire cast of characters is fantastic (please let the twins get books). As usual the story sucks you in and you feel like you are in the thick of things. Wheeler and Sammy are adorable, and I love their love at first site story.

Loved it!!

This is my first time diving into this series and I started with book 4, and I absolutely love this paranormal world that the author has created. I loved how I could dive in mid series and I wasn’t lost in this world. Samantha was a unique character that I took to liking very quickly. This is definitely a fast pace read and I enjoyed the action as well as the insta-love! Wheeler was a swoon-worthy book boyfriend.
The outcasts were a fun group, but my favorite one was Bill’s character as he made me laugh with his antics.
The narrator was wonderful!! D.C. Cole used a wide variety of voices and inflections to portray multiple characters and it was quite refreshing. He certainly breathed life to the story and I truly enjoyed his narration skills.

Cozy enjoyable read

Sammie moves south and is trying to adjust to southern hospitality and a new job at the art gallery. A wrong delivery leaves her between a rock and a hard place. Her small metal statue is a giant stone statue and a whole heap of issues. The book is a fun read with a insta love mating, a rock hard gargoyle and some interesting characters. I adore the Irish twins! It’s not a deep read but nice for a day when you want to get lost in a paranormal story for a few hours.

Book 4

I jumped straight into this series without reading or listening to any of the previous stories and still enjoyed it. This book focuses on Wheeler’s tale, who is part vampire and part gargoyle. Things get interesting when Sammy hears the gargoyle statue speaking to her. Overall a fun, well crafted book that is easy to listen to.

Sparks Fly Between Mates!

This was a wonderful story with fantastic narration by DC Cole. I loved the different accents he perfected which brought the characters to life. It was lovely to read Wheeler’s story. He’s such an engaging character and I loved his interactions with Sammy which were humorous and entertaining. Mandy M Roth has created such a wonderful paranormal world. You can dip in and out without having to read/listen to the books in order which is always good. Loved this and highly recommend.

Awesome!

I love every book in this series. This is Wheeler's story, we get glimpses of him in Wrecked Intel, Act of Brotherhood and Bound to Midnight. This book doesn't disappoint! It can be read as a standalone but it's best when read in sequence with the rest of the series.

I have loved Wheeler since we were introduced to his character in the earlier Outcast book. Unlike the other PSI and Ops operatives who are mostly dark and brooding, Wheeler always had that good natured, lovable vibe. So I definitely loved how this story turned out. His light-heartedness carries this story beautifully, and Mandy does an amazing job balancing all that out with her choice of villain. If you love other books in this series, then this will definitely become another favourite!

Narration is once again on point. DC Cole does an amazing job!
