In Her Perfect Mate, teaming up shapeshifter agents and military Special Forces operatives for assignments has been problematic for the Department of Covert Operations. Shifters have been slowly accepted by their partners, but Ivy and Landon are evenly matched and non-judgmental, which makes the action more intriguing. It’s pleasant not to have to cut through prejudice and have adults in the room.

Feline shifter Ivy Halliwell is waiting to meet her third partner and has no great expectations. Special Forces Captain Landon Donovan is recalled from Afghanistan to work for a department he’s never heard of and partner with a stunning woman who can take him in hand-to-hand combat. Intrigued, he soon learns that the DCO does jobs for Homeland Security that aren’t sanctioned or traced. Ivy is surprised by Landon’s immediate acceptance and their chemistry. Ivy and Landon find themselves fighting bureaucracy, as well as the country’s enemies. When they are tasked to find kidnapped scientists, the pair discovers that there is an entity trying to create their own army of hybrid-shifter warriors. From there, the race is on.
