Complication (Syndicate Masters: Northern Lights Book 2)

The action between this couple are almost too hot to handle. They simply reach out and grab your heart right from the start. Thankfully, the hopping back and forth time wise is kept to a minimum. But I’m still dying to read the next one!

The Reluctant Retiree

Little did I know my search for stolen art would become a complication for the boss of the Valhalla Syndicate. A complication he has decided to keep.

I knew who he was when I met him at a fundraising event. Anders Jensen, is the boss of Norway’s most powerful criminal organization, the Valhalla Syndicate. He heard I was hired to find a painting stolen by the Nazis. He has offered to fund my expedition in exchange for one of the other looted paintings he wants for his personal collection.

Accepting his offer has drawn me into a web of intrigue and danger. When a sniper’s bullet nearly ends my life, I find myself in Anders’ embrace and under his protection.

Then he showed me his secret… Now I’ll never get away.

Complication is a fated mates provocative paranormal romance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeping His Mate Safe
Reviewed in the United States on June 18, 2022
This is the second book in the Syndicate Masters: Northern Lights series each book reads as a standalone yet connected but you do not need to read the first in the series to understand this one, each book has a sexy as all get out shifter and their mate. Buckle up this is a wild ride, dangerous men, alpha personified, possessive, oh, so gorgeous, brooding all the makings of a deliciously story 😊. There will be suspense, betrayal, expeditions for lost paintings, secrets reveled, violence, hope, forgiveness, and maybe love.

Once you start this book just like the one before it you won’t stop even when you have things to do so by the time you’ve figured out who is who and what is what, you’re already hooked, and you may as well give up the fight and prepare yourself for an all-nighter!

Can’t say I didn’t warn you.
Gabriella smart, strong, self-sufficient, an historian/attorney so she knows the legal way of doing things, they do not submit to anyone other than their mate (sometimes not even then 😊 depending how they are feeling) and she didn’t apologize for her human flaws in fact she demanded that you accept her just as she is flaws and all. Gabriella is on the hunt for a specific painting a priceless piece that was stolen by the Nazis during World War two (I learned a few things I didn’t know about the WWII) and when she is contacted by a man, she pays it very little attention. Anders sexy as all get out boss of the Valhalla Syndicate who usually gets who/what he wants when he wants them/it, knowing his mate is the beautiful historian(he has kept a very close eye on her of course without her knowledge) he has to have her by any means necessary, so if that means getting her to work for him (basically trapping her to himself) just to be around her he thought would be enough but no it wasn’t she defies him at every turn, spankings don’t mean much to her when she has her own agenda but they are a lot of fun (in true Delta James fashion all her females are strong willed, defiant but love just as hard) just the right one for Anders she won’t take his none of his mess. So, when he approaches her about finding a treasure, she isn’t impressed in fact she doesn’t even like him or she keeps telling herself because the attraction was off the charts from the moment they met. Gabriella agrees to help him find his treasure, but he wants to go along with her which she isn’t agreeing to until someone takes a shot at her sister barely missing her and in steps Anders who strong arms (shhhh persuade them) into the Sabu Stronghold as guest who aren’t allowed to leave under the name of protection (of course he has an ulterior motive -his mate ) getting her right where he wants/needs her and of course she isn’t too happy in fact she is so upset with him and she doesn’t mince her words on letting him know either. But going after the painting is her goal so when he shifts showing himself to be a snow leopard she escapes to continue her mission of finding the painting but there is danger someone do not want her to find the painting and will do everything in their power to stop her but Anders isn’t going to allow anything to happen to his mate and she will feel his displeasure in leaving his protection but will they find out who wants her dead, will she find the painting, will he find the treasure he was after, will she submit to being his mate, will he give her reason to want to be his mate, will he keep her safe through the twists & turns, and will they find happiness along the way?.

4.0 out of 5 stars I would recommend reading the books in this series in the correct order

I really am enjoying this series as usual with Delta James books -great characters,fun plots with humor and snarkiness decorating it from the start of the book. BUT, I gave this book only four stars because I got really bored and was starting to lose interest in the plot in the middle of the book. I really enjoyed the main characters and decided not to stop reading this book. I love history and Art so the sub plot looking for stolen Art from the Nazi plunder from WW11 was fascinating because of all my previous research. I would definitely recommend this series also because I love animals. Once again Delta James books are great!

Alliance (Syndicate Masters: Northern Lights Book 1)

Alliances are made. Complications are kept. Judgments are demanded.
From USA Today Bestselling Author Delta James, a stunning book in the Syndicate Masters, Northern Lights romance series.

I am a pawn in a dangerous game. One he will take by any means.

Years ago an alliance was made between the Tiamat Syndicate and the Northern Lights Coalition. I was promised to Gunnar, the head of the Blood Eagle Syndicate. Our families believed an alliance was the only way to prevent all-out war.

With my father dead, my brother Joshua refuses to force me into Gunnar’s bed until he needs to forge an alliance with Gunnar against a common enemy-the Bratva.

I am a pawn to both sides. So I ran. I ran as far as I could to get away from him. I should have known better… Lions love to hunt.

Once he catches me he expects me to play by his rules. He thinks he can bend me to his will. It would be so much easier to fight him if we weren’t fated mates.

When the Bratva attack, can I use the war to escape him, or will I join him in the battle?

'Alliance' is the first book in Delta James' "Syndicate Masters: Northern Lights" series. It picks up right where book four, "The Understanding" in her "Syndicate Masters" series left off. So if you thought the original series was exciting and wanted to know what happened after the bonding ceremony, then be prepared because the underlying plot that carries through brings excitement and anticipation that does not disappoint! The joining of Gunner and Marley sealed the alliance between the Tiamat Syndicate and the Blood Eagle Syndicate. Made by both fathers when the Tiamat Syndicate needed physical and financial aid, Joshua, the eldest son and now leader has given Marley a reprieve by not enforcing it since both fathers have passed. But when the Tiamat Syndicate needs that alliance again in order to stand against an attack by the Bratva, Joshua has no alternative but to honor the original alliance and hand Marley over to Gunner. Marley, on the other hand, has been coddled, spoiled, and let them have her freedom and independence. As a matter of fact, she's a world-renowned deep-sea diver. She has no intention of being subservient to any man even if Gunner thinks they are fated, mates. It was fascinating to watch both characters grow into their own as an epiphany after epiphany came to mind. But regardless of how much their minds argue and fight there's no denying the chemistry of a fated mate and it's evident within these pages. And when Marley finally receives a new nickname from Gunnar it absolutely melts my heart.

Please don't underestimate the above reader's caption 🙅💯.

Please RESPECT that the Author DELTA JAMES is BACKING UP HER pre-warnings to the FULLEST. 💯

There's NO "skirting around" the content of this book. It is IN FACT a Dark Mafia PNR 💯💯

This is a "REAL, GROWN PNR,👉PEOPLE" 💯

It is also a reader's "GROWN PERSON INDIVIDUAL CHOICE" to or not to read. Judgement FREE 💯.

The actual story ( as it pertains to the story👈,
was ( wisely handled by the Author) , in her layering & creating a storyline, characters, background developments, a concise history behind the Alpha Male; as well as his More Than Equal to him, "fated partner". 💯

The Mafioso Alpha Persona and Energy, the definite push & pull, plots, the unforseen 😯, the betrayals, the loyalties, the action & the ending ??
ALL THERE & ON DECK💯.

The Author also layered in some sensuality ( another wise choice ).
👉Some👈. NOT enough to "touch nor change" ANY pre-warnings.

It skimmed off a "few" edges of it, IMHO.

Delta James PNR DARK GENRE is very INTENSE.

Obey/ Anyway 👈, is exactly what this reading genre is, teeth bared.

Hence, the pre-warnings 👈. Appreciate the Author for that.....
