I've long been a fan of Marie Harte's work, but kind of lost touch with what she was writing for the past several months. I happened to run into a review on the Circe's Recruits and decided to give the series a try. So I started with Book 1 that was released in November of last year.

One thing that didn't disappoint me when reading this book was the quality of Marie's writing. She is just such a great writer that even when she proposes the ridiculous you want to believe everything she says and keep reading. Another thing is she writes the most appealing sex scenes and they seem to fit right in no matter what the situation. The characters are appealing and the love story fits well.

That said, the first book in the Circe's Recruits series, Roane, had me at times laughing out loud. The story line reminded me of the Incredible Hulk series in a lot of ways.

The first book gives readers a chance to learn about the elite group of men and it's new member Caitlyn. Caitlyn is sitting on the beach one day when two men try to abduct her. She has no idea who they are or what they want. She manages to get away from then and finds herself taken away instead by five other men. These men bring her to a Doctor who tells her that she has come into maturity of incredible powers and her life is about to change forever.

Although, the subject is a little "super heros" for me, I think I'll continue on with the series. As I said it may seem out of this world, but Marie is really a good writer and it will be interesting to see what she comes up with next in Zack and Ace's story.

In the three years since Project Dawn disbanded, Roane Weston and his men continue to fight the good fight. Now civilians, his squad--Circe's Recruits--works for a private organization bent on cleaning up the mess left in the wake of Project Dawn's rebirth. Run by Elliot Pearl, a ruthless millionaire, Pearson Labs continues to create Circs, people who have been genetically changed. When needed, these Circs take on an altered form, one neither man nor animal, but something in between. But unlike Roane and his squad, the Circs coming out of Pearson Labs aren't sane... Except for Caitlyn Chase, a female Roane can't get out of his mind.

As Caitlyn matures into the female Circ she was meant to be, she sets in motion a chain of events that will forever alter her future and those of Circe's Recruits. In the process, she'll fall in lust, in love with Roane, and in danger as she finally finds out who she really is. Only with Roane and her newfound friends can she hope to keep the PPA at bay while they crush an agenda that may spell the end of them all.
