Strong, relentless, and lethal, he plays every angle to trap the worst criminals. But for the one woman he can't resist, he'll break all the rules…
For hotel manager Tabitha Martin, bad boys usually spell disaster. And her new guest promises just that, with his formidable build, tattooed biceps, and quiet take-no-mess attitude. Tabitha is already putting everything on the line to escape her vicious drug-dealing ex's control for good—but a single sizzling moment in “Damien Evans'” arms has her wanting all the trouble he can give…
He's been undercover too long and likes living dangerously too much. U.S. Marshal Parker Evans figures maybe that's why he doesn't immediately put Tabitha in custody.
Sure, she's his one chance to finally take down a major drug ring. But every minute he protects this mostly innocent blonde leaves his heart all too vulnerable.
And the cost of desire could be a deadly endgame…
Exciting and dangerous undercover world where the lines of reality and the role to be played starts to blur, when romance walks into the picture.
I liked this story, the balance between action and romance was pretty even.
Tabitha and Parker have an instant physical attraction. It is nearly comical, the effect Tabitha has on him, the veteran undercover bad boy agent. And they are not that shy to act on the attraction either. Before having a complete conversation, they are already all over each other. But as the case gets deeper, so does their feelings. And even though Tabitha and Parker are sizzling hot together, they also have sweetness and adorable moments, proving it is not just a physical case of insta-lust.
The undercover case Parker is working on, gets close to home to Tabitha as well. She is more involved in the tangled web of drug dealing, that Parker even thought at first. Things get dangerous, intense, all the way to life and death situations several times, until the case gets to its explosive end.
Very entertaining story, engaging and charismatic characters, both Parker and Tabitha with layers of depth, making them appealing. They both had some inner turmoil, Parker with his undercover persona, and not being straightforward with Tabitha. She was not only tormented by the future of her brother, but the blackmail of her ex, and her attraction to what seems to be yet another bad boy on the wrong side of the law. The story held my interest all the way, and looking forward to more in the world of the US Marchalls
