At eighteen, Melissa seduced her best friend Julia's brother only to run away shortly after. While Daniel was her fairytale prince, Lissa didn’t believe in happy ever afters.
Ten years and a near death experience later, Lissa is ready for a husband and family. But a cry for help from Julia puts that dream on hold. Daniel is acting weird and he’s about to marry his long term girlfriend—AKA The Evil One. Someone needs to save him.
Daniel has never stopped loving Lissa. Ten years ago when he gave her a little freedom, he always intended that one day they would be together. Right up until the moment he was bitten by a werewolf. Now, Daniel has to hide what he is. He won’t risk anyone else, especially the woman he loves.
But Lissa is back. Their attraction is stronger than ever and Lissa is nothing if not tenacious.
For being a Paranormal Romance, Operation Saving Daniel was pretty light on the “paranormal.” I mean, Daniel is a werewolf and the ultimate showdown was between him and his pack leader. But most of the build up was Lissa trying to seduce him away from his awful fiancee, and Daniel pretending to be this emotionless robot.
Ten years ago, Lissa and Daniel had one special night together before she ran off. Now, she’s back and hopes to get him out of her system for good. I’m not sure how seeing him again after so long is suppose to accomplish that, but okay. The man she finds is certainly not the same one she left a decade ago, but she can tell that something about him isn’t right. Meanwhile, Daniel is caught in an engagement of convenience (or so he says) with an awful woman, but he really has no say in the matter if he wants his sisters to live. Of course, all of this is backed by the fact that Daniel and his fake fiancee are werewolves, but the plot could have been exactly the same if they were human.
Once the paranormal elements of Operation Saving Daniel kicked in, it was nearly over. All of the excitement in crammed into the last quarter-or-so, and one of the big bad wolves is killed off the page! That was majorly unsatisfying. At least Lissa and Daniel got their happily ever after…
