Romantic suspense fans will welcome the second BAD (Bureau of American Defense) Agent novel from bestseller Kenyon and RITA Award–winner Love (after Phantom in the Night ). E-mail tips under a pseudonym from French heiress Gabrielle Tynte Saxe to law-enforcement agencies lead to the rescue of a diplomat's daughter from the Fratelli de il Sovrano, an international terrorist organization bent on world domination. Gabrielle, who secretly works for world peace, is lying low in a planned community near Atlanta, out of reach of her vengeful movie star ex-husband and the South American criminal responsible for the fatal bombing of a van whose passengers included her mother. When her cover is blown, BAD agent Carlos Delgado rides to the rescue, joining Gabrielle in a mission to stop the Fratellis' latest nefarious and far-fetched plot, which involves using disabled teens. Fortunately, amid the overblown action, there's always time for hot sex breaks. (May)
