She’s smart, seductive, and in way over her head.
He’s her only way out.
An undercover DEA agent has gone off the radar. Suspecting an internal mole, the government needs Luke Dubois and his elite team of operatives to recover their man, and the New Orleans native thinks he’s found his way inside the dark underbelly of Manhattan: Olivia Taylor, the girlfriend of a mob boss and the sexiest woman he’s ever laid eyes on. His new mission objective? Get past Olivia’s defenses and convince her to take a chance—on him.
All Olivia wanted was to finish law school and live a normal life, but that dream was shattered when one dangerous night put her deeply in a mobster’s debt. Now Luke and his team will help her escape—in exchange for intel on the missing agent. But Olivia doesn’t anticipate her intense attraction to the reckless Louisiana charmer or that she’ll be forced to risk everything—including her heart.
Kennedy's second Killer Instincts romantic thriller (after Midnight Rescue) balances the gritty side of humanity with sizzling passion. Mercenary Luke Dubois is on a find and rescue mission involving tedious hours of stakeouts at a strip club, last known location of an undercover DEA agent. Action-oriented Luke is bored until he's told to focus on gorgeous dancer Livy Lovelace. Dancing allows Livy to pay for school and her mother's expensive chemotherapy. Unfortunately, her slimy and sadistic boss, Vince Angelo, thinks she should be his mistress, willing or not. Livy knows Vince is willing to kill anyone who stymies him, so she spurs Luke's offer of help until Vince murders one of her friends. Soon risk-taker Luke and ever-cautious Livy are exploring their fiery passion and wondering whether they can make it permanent. Intriguing good guys and brutal bad guys, gory violence, twisty intertwined plots, and sassy dialogue overcome the clich s to keep readers turning the pages right up to the cliffhanger ending.
