Chasing Victory
The Winter's Sisters #1

288p.

Doctor Doolittle in female form creates X-Men on steroids. Murder, kidnapping, and blackmail follow as world-renowned geneticist Victory Winters is forced to pursue her research on canine DNA. 
Victory possesses an unusual innate sense of communication, boarding on telepathic when relating to animals. This unique ability has elevated her status to world renowned genetic research specialist. She is kidnapped and blackmailed with threats to her family, forcing her to work for a rival corporation, Biotec and run by a madman CEO. 
Naval officer Tristan Farraday is sent undercover to track Biotec’s experiments. These experiments involve implanting genus canis DNA into humans thereby manipulating their genetic makeup, in hopes to create the perfect soldier. 
First suspecting Victory as being associated with Biotec, Tristan later realizes that she has been pulled into this world against her wishes. Victory refuses to divulge the genetic answers Biotec demands. She believes Biotec is looking to exploit her findings, by using them in a destructive manner. Will Tristan be able to rescue her from this madman’s grip and save her family? Can he keep the research Victory discovers away from enemy hands?
I got this one when it was a freebie. I admit I got it mostly because of the puppy on the cover. DOBIE! Must have... and it sounds interesting as well. I'm just hoping the puppy is okay. :)

So, added any to your tbr because of a puppy on the cover? :D

  11. I thought the X-men were already on steroids that's what made them X-men and X-women. Not sure I want to see them with any more supernatural powers. LOL.

    I'm always wary of dog stories for the same reason as you. Could not take it if the dog dies. Reduces me to a puddle.
