Sunday Series Spotlight: The Region Two Series by Janet Walden-West

Agent Zero

He owns the spotlight, she lives in the shadows.


VEE:
My only purpose? Keep lethal cryptids in check, and our Company existence secret.

Sometimes a girl needs a night of karaoke and tequila though. Instead, after a vicious new cryptid species crashes the party, I end up saving and carting home a way arrogant, way hot chef. With Bruce Kantor now a temporary roommate it seems like the perfect time to indulge my forbidden civilian fascination—especially the friends-with-benefits part. But the feelings he ignites threaten my oath and mission.

BRUCE:
Damn right I’m the bad boy of the culinary world.

I live for the limelight, and the legions of #BruceTheBastard fans love my temper as much as my food. After stomping out of one high-profile gig, all I’m looking for are directions to my next. What I get is a giant Komodo Dragon-wannabe, and Vee Ramirez, the most infuriatingly irresistible woman to ever hit my radar.

Even if we survive the relentless monster on my trail, our future is toast unless I can convince Vee there’s more to life than the Company.

Trained from birth to defend humanity, the members of Company Alpha Cryptid Containment protect Region Two from that which goes bump in the night. But protecting their hearts? That’s a different story.

Agent Down

Bargaining with the enemy always has a cost—and mine has come due.

VEE:
Remember that way arrogant, way famous chef I rescued? Turns out, he’s my soulmate.
Despite Bruce’s lack of a filter, he’s actually fitting into Region Two’s rhythm—cryptids stalking the city, my team stalking the cryptids. My sisters mining our fav rom-coms for tips on meeting my civilian boyfriend’s parents.

So we’re blindsided when hit by a tragedy even Company resources can’t combat, one threatening to shatter the team and my heart. Until I accidentally uncover an ultra-classified potential miracle. What the research points me to requires betraying the Company, my team, everything that makes me—me.

But if this deal with the devil saves Bruce? I’m okay with the sacrifice.

Bruce:
We’d fought a different kind of battle and damn well earned our fairy tale ending.

Except there were things Vee didn’t tell me. That there was a price for saving my life. That Vee’s the one who has to pay. When the Company discovers what she’s done, the verdict is treason, the punishment, death.

They’re about to meet Bruce the Bastard though and no power—human, government, or cryptid—can keep me from rescuing Vee.


Trained from birth to defend humanity, the members of Company Alpha Cryptid Containment protect Region Two from that which goes bump in the night.
But protecting their hearts? That’s a different story.

Agent of Chaos

Liv:
I have to be perfect.
Perfect agent. Perfect Commanding Officer. Follow every rule to the letter, since HQ already expects my new ragtag team to crash and burn.

With the cryptid situation pushing my bare-bones team to its limits, I don’t need a stray civilian whose goal seems to be getting himself killed on my watch. Marshall throws himself between people and danger like his life doesn’t matter.

Except, for some reason, he matters to me.

Even if the giant redhead’s touch reminds me I’m more than my Command position, how can I risk his life and my team’s chance at success just for the sake of my happiness?


Marshall:
All I ever do is screw up.
With jobs. With people. Especially with people.
Definitely with the crazy-beautiful superhero-soldier who takes down my vampire boss—who, no, I didn’t know was a vampire.

Ending up in her custody, at a secret base full of other perfect super-soldiers? Custom-made opportunity for me to mess something up. But Liv sees through my weirdness to the real me.

Now, I’ve gotta show her rules are made to be broken and that while she’s protecting everyone else, I’ll be protecting her.
This time, screwing up isn’t an option.

Trained from birth to defend humanity, the members of Company Alpha Cryptid Containment protect Region Two from that which goes bump in the night.
But protecting their hearts? That’s a whole different story.
