When his uncle is brutally murdered, Josiah King knows that business just got personal. His uncle's ties to the Alliance can mean only one thing: Josiah and his black ops team are targets, along with everyone they love. Primed for vengeance, Josiah is determined to unravel the plot--until long-legged redhead Sutton Dahl becomes a dangerous distraction.
Sutton is very good at uncovering other people's secrets—and protecting her own. When Josiah bursts into her life she's torn between pushing him away and asking for his help. Mysterious, strong, and much too sexy, he's a puzzle she longs to solve, and a temptation she can't ignore.
Thrown together in the face of Alliance's most lethal threat, Josiah and Sutton become unlikely partners, fighting for their lives even as the attraction between them flares into real passion. Torn between his team and the woman who means everything to him, Josiah will risk it all to save Sutton, even if that decision is his last.
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.
