Shadow of the Witte Wieven

Debbie Peterson
Paranormal Romance

"The form-fitting black doublet he wore looked like something straight out of 'The Three Musketeers,' minus the ridiculous broad-brimmed, large feathered hat."

Aliyana Montijo is in trouble.  As an undercover DEA agent, she has infiltrated the main compound of a huge Columbian drug cartel.  Now to get out with her life, and the evidence, intact.  But things go awry when she is thrown through a storm unlike she has ever seen and wakes up with a man claiming to be from another dimension.  Wolfaert Dircksen Van Ness, former captain of the Dutch West Indies Company, has never met a woman like Aliyana.  Drawn to her, he and his men pledge to help her save innocent lives and lock up the man responsible.  Perhaps then, Aliyana will consider going back with him through the Bermuda Triangle.  But first, he has to keep her alive, and convince her that some things are worth giving up everything for.

My Opinion: This was an interesting book, as Peterson takes on another angle of the paranormal and myth.  Though sometimes a bit confusing and far-fetched, the idea is created in a plausible manner.  Aliyana and Wolf are both good characters, daring and brave.  Their relationship is an underlying force throughout the story, though I felt like I didn't see as much of its development as I had wanted.  The same with the side characters.  Though there were many and understandably they couldn't all be fleshed out completely, I wanted to know at least some of them a bit more.  They were fun though, giving a nice backdrop to the main actions of the story.  Very focused on the step-by-step actions of the mission, it began as hard to follow but eventually sucked me into the adventure of it.  A good action story with, of course, some romance intertwined.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.
