The third Bad Boys Undercover romantic thriller (after Falling Hard) lures readers into a dangerous world. Josiah King, one of the elite operatives of the black-ops group called the Alliance, is determined to avenge the brutal murder of his uncle, and he regrets not killing the man known as Benton when he last encountered him in Pakistan. Sutton Dahl, a Baltimore PI, is also tracking the same man, known to her as Ryan Bane; he killed her mother. When Sutton steals a file from Bane while in Paris, she piques the interest of the Alliance, and Josiah breaks into her apartment and threatens her. But when she comes under fire from Bane, Josiah ends up being her rescuer. After Sutton proves that she can be an asset to the Alliance, she and Josiah distract themselves from their fears of death by jumping into bed. Nail-biting suspense and steamy romance are the mainstays of this novel, as the protagonists must discover whether their attraction stems from deeper emotions. Agent: Laura Bradford, Laura Bradford Literary Agency. (Sept.)
