Series: Play by Play, book 9

Grant Cassidy knows how to be a football star—flash that dazzling smile, throw the winning pass, get the girl. But while the hot quarterback loves the game and the lifestyle, no woman has come close to catching his heart. Then he matches wits with a smart, gorgeous model, and Grant finds himself wanting more than a fling.

playingdirty 250Looking for a new book to read? There are plenty of great choices from this week’s new releases.

 

HelenKay Dimon’s Playing Dirty is a romantic suspense in the Bad Boys Undercover series - a series about a group of international covert operatives. Ford Decker is on an undercover mission to get close to Shay Alexander whose cousin has been identified as a national security threat. And boy does Ford get close to Shay. Playing Dirty is an action-packed story with several twists and turns, as well as many sexy moments. One of my favorite parts of this book (and the entire series) is the relationships between the operatives of the Alliance, in particular the male bonding. The story is filled with their lighthearted banter. Playing Dirty is an intense, yet fun romantic suspense that I highly recommend. I would suggest that readers start with Running Hot, the novella that introduces the series.

I have felt rather disconnected from historical romance of late. I do not read nearly as many historical romances as I once did, and I often don’t even notice - well until I read some great ones that remind me of what I am missing out on. Recently, I had this experience with two books: Tessa Dare’s Say Yes to the Marquess and Miranda Neville’s The Duke of Dark Desires. Both were wonderful stories with heart despite being very different.

 

Say Yes to the Marquess by Tessa Dare is the lighter of the two romances. Clio Whitmore has been engaged to local lord, Piers Brandon, the Marquess of Granville, for eight long years. Piers has been absent for quite some time, working as a diplomat abroad. Clio is tired of waiting, and Piers really isn’t the husband she wants anyway. Determined to take control over her own life, Clio marches into a seedy area of London to find the only man who can free her from her engagement, Lord Rafe Brandon, her brother in law to be.

Review: Dead No More by L.R. Nicolello

DeadNoMoreDead No More by L.R. Nicolello (romantic suspense, HQN, January 2015, $3.89, 286pp)

 

Summary:
The next person you trust…may be the last…

Lily Andrews was once the most sought-after undercover operative at Unit 67, a Black Ops agency buried deep within the U.S. Intelligence Community. But then her partner—and fiancé—turned rogue, leaving her for dead after a mission gone horribly wrong. Disgusted with 67's attempt to cover up Jackson's traitorous actions, Lily walked away from everything she knew and loved…and swore she'd hunt her ex down on her own and bring him to justice.

 

When the handsome, undeniably alpha Derek Moretti needs her help to pursue a ruthless sociopath who is putting advanced weaponry into the hands of terrorists, Lily sees her chance to return to 67 with her pride intact. She didn't realize how much she'd missed the adrenaline rush of being undercover—or maybe that's the heat that races through her whenever Derek is near. But soon Lily will have to choose between the vengeance she craves and the country she's sworn to protect. And with the clock ticking down on a nuclear catastrophe, she knows that this time, if she's trusted the wrong man, she won't live to regret it…
