Irresistible Deceptions is a stand-alone romantic suspense but could easily be a great first installment to a fast paced series. Mackenzie Crowne has created this intricate story of a man and a woman in the pursuit of justice with plenty of action and suspenseful adventures, as the two key characters fight for what is right. There are different layers of emotions embedded in this suspenseful narrative. Crowne takes the reader into Washington, D.C. to experience the highbrow individuals whose mindset of darkness, covert activities, and evil can be directed towards individuals who know too much. The development of the protagonist and the antagonist is smooth and well defined. The action packed activities are like witnessing a movie of conspiratorial suspense. Crowne makes certain to bring along an attentive audience throughout the story. The settings are authentic and she does a fantastic job of capturing the Washington corruption machine that often gets loose and devastates anything in its path. The author has clearly demonstrated her writing craft as she incorporates many literary elements that kept me glued to every word on my Kindle. I enjoyed the many twists and turns planted within Irresistible Deceptions and I feel it will please the palate of readers looking for a thriller with just the right amount of sexiness. This book, which will captivate the minds of both genders, may leave you breathless at times and wanting more.
Nicky will stop at nothing to protect her beloved son, Alex. Rhyder is a man's man and a woman's heartthrob. He has plenty of pain bottled up as a result of Jonathan Everson—Nicky’s nefarious ex-husband. Rhyder’s agony is similar to the anguish Nicky feels. Will they be able to trust each other in their plight from the Everson's long reaching hands?
He'll either be her salvation or her ruin...
After five years on the run, Nicky Guimond Everson’s location is exposed, and she’s forced to come out of hiding to keep her son safe. Wary and suspicious, she’ll have to trust a stranger if she is to bring her illegal-arms-dealing ex-husband to justice once and for all. But resisting the arrogant but sexy security specialist isn't as easy as she first thought.
For Rhy McLean, the mission comes first. The job is his only love, but as he works with Nicky to catch his brother’s killer, her strength and loyalty melt the ice encasing his heart. She's not at all the woman he expected her to be. But Rhy has a dark secret he's been keeping from her and everything is at risk if she finds out.
