I love stories that combine danger, deliciously spicy attraction, and characters who can use their brains and their brawn, and this one hits all of the right notes for me. My favorite heroines are those who have something to add to the relationship and don’t wait around to be rescued, and although one wouldn’t think of an information analyst as being a badass, somehow Karen shows that she is a pretty formidable combination of brains and beauty. Tucker is a deliciously alpha agent, and the hair-raising adventures that he and his partners get into keep one on the edge of one’s seat. This story can be read as a stand-alone with no problem and the characters are compelling, the relationship sizzling, and the action non-stop. I hope there are plenty more adventures featuring these yummy heroes and heroines and I look forward to seeing more of them get their happy ever after.
“Edge of Danger” by Katie Reus is part of the ‘Deadly Ops’ series and centers on agent Tucker Pankov, whose professional and personal life is destroyed when his entire team is targeted for death and framed for terrorism. Karen Stafford is unwillingly recruited to help Tucker and his team look for answers, but finds herself driven to find justice for the man she comes to care about. Staying alive long enough to discover who is trying to destroy Tucker and his colleagues will be a challenge, but they will use all of the formidable resources at their disposal to do so, if only so they can get a chance to explore the intense attraction they feel for each other.
The new Deadly Ops novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Shattered Duty—in the series that delivers “fast-paced romantic suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat!”*
When an assassin tries to kill undercover DEA agent Tucker Pankov the same week his boss is taken out, Tucker has good reason to be paranoid. And when other members of his elite team are not only targeted, but stripped of top-secret security clearance, Tucker has one shot at discovering who wants them dead—and why. So he kidnaps the only woman he thinks can save them.
Brilliant NSA analyst Karen Stafford doesn’t like being forced into anything, especially by someone she doesn’t trust. Yet after a hijacked US-owned drone starts attacking government installations resulting in mass casualties, Karen has to take Tucker’s side. Now, two unlikely allies must unite to prevent an escalating and unthinkable terrorist conspiracy. But as Tucker and Karen grow intimate, they realize the conspiracy runs deep, and their enemies are closer than anyone realized.
