The Warrior In Me by Anita Philmar

Special Security Agent Sebastian Berlin is eager to track down his partner's killer. Instead, he’s assigned the job of baby-sitting a scientist. His boss thinks she's the key to an Ancient Warrior Prophecy. Science never interested Sebastian, but the know-it-all female standing at the end of his Alaskan dock could persuade him to do a little experimenting. That is, if he can keep his Neanderthal Warrior genes from taking control.

DNA specialist Lily Sinclair is in need of a vacation, or so her over-protective ex-husband tells her. Arriving in chilly Alaska instead of sunny Cancun, she's tired and cranky and so not in the mood for her bodyguard's he-man tactics. Still, there's something about the sexy eye-candy that makes her want to lick him all over even as she's demanding to go home.

Then Lily's ex is poisoned, and Sebastian is certain the two murders are connected and she could be next. She knows he's hiding something, but with the worldwide release of Neanderthal DNA project only days away, she has no choice but to trust him to protect her. But can she trust him with her heart?

Anita Philmar is an entirely new author for me and I was glad that I picked up The Warrior In Me. Considering it's the first book in a new paranormal series, I was easily able to follow the storyline once it began. It was very well described and there wasn't much second guessing on who's who and the links that exist between them. There were a few moments when I had to re read certain sections just to keep the scene in order (for example, Lily Sinclair's relationship with her ex-husband and his new wife). However, Anita Philmar knows how to bring her new world to life with her ability to describe the environment without going overboard.

As beautiful as the scenery was, the budding relationship that was unfolding before my eyes between Lily and Sebastien was captivating. To see them start off from one end of the room as Lily wished to be anywhere else but at Sebastien's home, and then progress to needing one another through thick and thin on top of having to deal with the big Neanderthal project was thrilling. I truly am glad that I read The Warrior In Me by Anita Philmar and I can't wait to see what else is in store for the series.
