Book Description

Never take Fate along on a date. The kiss goodnight could be deadly.

A Veilers Novel, Book 1

Tracking down Veilers—non humans—is only a sideline for Tess Damon. Vengeance for her fiancé’s murder is her reason for living. But with two botched jobs on her record, if she fails to eliminate her next mark, she’s dead.

She’s not afraid to die, but not before she gets even. Too bad fate has a really bad sense of humor.

Hugh Langston, a wolfen half shifter, lives to keep both humans and his pack safe. But when rogue humans kidnap his apprentice, his rescue mission is compromised by a hot-as-hell, kick-ass woman who makes him think only one thing: mine.

Tess tries to ignore her feelings, but temptation trips her up. Especially when Hugh figures out he’s her next target and forces her into an inconvenient alliance that tests all the laws against their attraction.

Now, with the line between good and evil getting blurrier by the minute, it becomes clear Tess’s only hope of living to see another day—and finding a murderer—lies with the one man she’s supposed to kill.

Warning: Contains one obscenely hot alpha and the woman who wants to love him before she kills him. Look out for a blind date, scorching sex, humor, lies, and untamable attraction.

3.0 out of 5 stars Veilers book 1 August 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm a huge fan of Robin Bielman's Secret Wishes contemporary romance series but everyone knows I'm a paranormal girl at heart so when I found out she was writing a PNR series I couldn't wait to get my hands on a copy of the first book Veiled Target. As you can imagine I had high hopes for this story but unfortunately I didn't love it as much a I expected to. There were a lot of things about the book that irritated me but it's really hard to explain why without giving some (fairly mild) spoilers so consider that a warning before you continue reading this review.

My biggest issue was with the main character Tess, she works as an Eliminator which basically means she's a human who is trained to hunt and kill Veilers (supernatural creatures) who cross the line and start to harm others. We are constantly told how kick-ass she is and that she is an expert at fighting but we never, ever see it in action. If you were to print a picture of someone next to the words "Too Stupid to Live" in the encyclopaedia it would have to be a portrait of Tess. She gets herself into one ridiculous situation after the other and I'm sure she only survives until the end of the book on pure luck and because of the sheer stupidity of her enemies. I can't for the life of me figure out how she has survived years as an Eliminator because she should have died numerous times in just this story and there were actually times I was wishing that would happen. Basically Tess is all talk and no action, she'll tell you constantly how much she loves danger and is an adrenaline junkie but when you look at the evidence she has no skill whatsoever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stunning in all of the right places! July 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
When starting a new book, I can usually tell pretty early on whether I’m going to like it or not, and after reading the opening scene of VEILED TARGET, I knew that Robin Bielman’s brand of action was for me. Chapter one begins with Tess in a face-off against a vampire on an airplane, and ends with her kicking butt and sky diving to safety—I mean, talk about an intro! The main heroine is an adrenaline junkie, and the alpha male is hotter than the fires of Hades, so right off the bat you have all the makings of an excellent Paranormal series. The only thing that slowed this story down was the relationship building, but other than that this novel is a thrill seekers’ dream.

The plot weaves a gripping tale of multi-layered double crosses which makes each character’s motivations difficult to pinpoint. Tess and Hugh both have their own agenda, but so do the supporting sidekicks who really helped transform this book into a complicated game of ‘he said, she said.’ And, just when you think that you’ve got it all figured out, the ending comes out of nowhere and catches you completely by surprise. I love a good guessing game, and VEILED TARGET delivered a whopper on that front. As for the paranormal mythology, it was straight forward and easy enough to grasp. I wish the author would have expanded a bit more on the different qualities of her various supes, and the reasons behind the Night Runners vs. Wolf Seekers war, but I think I got the gist of it.

My first impression of Tess was a good one, and sparks were definitely flying during her initial meeting with Hugh, but after that her personality began to take-on a stalker-ish quality that had me second guessing my original opinion.

3.0 out of 5 stars Veiled Target was veiled for me October 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Veiled Target was a mixed bag for me. I did like Hugh and Tess, but I didn’t get to know them well. I know Tess had a tough childhood, because I was told, I know Hugh had a loss in his past, because I was told. I didn’t feel the emotion of either of these things. It’s as though I read the surface of these characters only. I wanted to get to know them, to FEEL their emotion.

Their reaction to each other at first meeting was fabulous, that I got. The instant connection and attraction was great. The sexual tension was good in spots, but seemed to disappear in places. The same can be said for the angst, it was there and gone too much for me, the switch jarring in places. It seemed almost veiled for me as if I was reading the first and last page of a chapter but missing the heart of the story, things happened, but I got no insight into the characters.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

4.0 out of 5 stars A book full of adventure and sexiness! July 22, 2014
By elena k
Format:Kindle Edition
If you have read before any Robin's books, expect something different. This book is sexier,edgier and more adventurous . It's like an alter ego wrote it and though it is unexpected, I still loved it.

Tess is a woman who seeks revenge, she kills veilers-non humans- for living and it is all she knows. She is a killer, bossy and she wants control all the time. Until she meets her next target, Hugh. Hugh is a shifter, a wolfen, a man protective of his pack and those he cares about. He is intelligent, strong and sexy. Mostly, he makes Tess question her life and gets to show her that there are more than hate and revenge.

Their relationship is not sweet, it is a game between wills and the stronger wins. Tess is a stubborn woman and sometimes I wanted to push her in Hugh's way, because no woman could have resisted this man! Although, her bossiness sometimes irked me, I understand her character because she is hurt and she has chosen a difficult life as an assassin.Hugh on the other hand is what I expected of an alpha hero. He has a fierce heart and a body to worship!I liked that he confronts Tess head on, so he can protect her. About the erotic scenes, nothing is behind closed doors and I have to say I really liked this side of Robin's writing. The sex scenes are really hot!

This is a book full of twists, mystery and sexiness. Robin presents us perfectly this new side of shifters and their killers. Prepare yourselves for new experiences in this fantastic world!
