Florida private investigator Ric Alvarado’s life is spiraling out of control. His beautiful new assistant, Annie Dugan, is far more interested in fieldwork than filing, and despite Ric’s best efforts to ignore the attraction, sparks are flying between them. Then one of Ric’s clients turns femme fatale and tries to gun down an innocent man. Thanks to quick thinking and even quicker reflexes, Ric comes to the rescue, only to learn he’s done a very good deed for some very bad people.

Suddenly Ric finds himself deep undercover with Annie, working for notorious crime boss Gordon Burns. One mistake from Ric’s painfully inexperienced partner could leave them both dead.

FBI agent Jules Cassidy’s life isn’t in much better shape. For years the FBI has been trying to prove Gordon Burns’ ties to terrorist activity. Now, thanks to Ric and Annie, Jules has found a way into the lion’s den. But in the course of his investigation he comes face-to-face with Robin Chadwick, the charismatic but self-destructive and closeted movie star for whom Jules feels a powerful attraction. Robin is in town promoting his latest film—and Gordon Burns is a star-struck movie buff.

With Robin and Jules’ help, Ric and Annie are soon entrenched in Burns’ organization, surrounded by killers who may already have executed an FBI infiltrator. Before long the couple realizes that many more lives besides their own will be at stake if they make a false move. As the heat between them reaches dangerous levels, so do the risks they’re willing to take—in the line of duty, for the sake of loyalty, and in the name of something that runs even deeper.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darci | 2/7/2014

    " I'm so bored with most of the characters in this series now, but the Jules story line makes it worth reading. They characters tend to be pretty similar in personalities to each other. I do like that plenty of bad shit happens to them though rather than always making it out unharmed. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura (Kyahgirl) | 1/25/2014

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hope Frost | 1/8/2014

    " I will keep this book only because it is part of a series that I totally enjoy. I have to assume that Suzanne had a momentary lapse in judgement when it came to this story, since there was absolutely no rhyme or reason for this story other than more gay rights info, that seems to get more and more prevalent. I don't enjoy a book that I feel I HAVE to get through, but as this is a series book, I knew more characters would be introduced. I will, of course, be moving on to "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 ♆ BookAddict ~ La Crimson Femme | 11/12/2013

    " Robin is a self centered drama queen. His stupid antics are an embarrassment. I still don't know why Jules likes Robin. Jules is too good for Robin. This one didn't do as much for me. IT was just okay. The entire time, the crime part was secondary to Robin's flaming drama queen problem. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allen Wolf | 9/26/2013

    " Entertaining reading if you like espionage type novels mixed with a bit too graphic sex scenes. oooh. "

    " Eh - this one was OK. The setup seemed interesting, but the dynamic between two of the four main characters was really boring. Things picked up when Sam Starret arrived. All in all one of the least satisfying in the series. "

    " Okay I gave this four stars even though I didn't really like the main story line. What saved this book is the story line for Jules and Robin. If you are a Jules fan, this book is great. "

    " I liked the book more in the beginning when it was heavier on the suspense than the latter part of the book where it was heavier on romance, but still a good read. Enjoyable. "
