Megan's Mark by Lora Leigh

Started reading this because Angela Knight recommends it on the cover and I like her so I figured I would try it. It was good, but it is in the middle of a series. She has a Breed Series put out by Ellora's Cave and this is part of it. It can be read alone, but I hate coming in in the middle. But there are like 9 other stories in the series. One of which is in Hot Spell with Emma Holly that I have been wanting anyway. So I am not sure if I will continue this one.
This is what I have been able to put together about the series. It is a futuristic set in 2023 and the government has made genetically engineered soldiers combining human and animal DNA and the Council put in charge of them treated them like disposable soldiers and playthings (they raped the females). Now the Breeds have been able to pass an act or something to protect themselves from mistreatment. But the Council is not going for that and wants their "toys" back or destroyed.

The story is about Feline Breed Braden Arness and empath, Megan Fields. To protect herself from her abilities Megan lives and works as a sheriff's deputy in the middle of nowhere, Arizona where she grew up eventhough she longs for adventure. For some reason unknown at the beginning of the book someone high up (presumably in the Council) wants Megan dead. To get to her the bad guys murdered 2 Breed in the area that she was patrolling that day. Braden is also there searching for the 2 Breeds that had disappeared. After the bad guys try to kill her, she is put into Braden's care. That does not sit well with her because she can take care of herself and braden finds that he has his large hands full with this assignment.
