Baker & Taylor
When the assassin Orion targets Risa Clay, Elite Ops agent Micah Sloane, whose family was killed by Orion, asks Risa to pose as his lover so that he can lure the assassin into a trap, as they try to resist their mutual passion.

McMillan Palgrave

Micah Sloane knows almost everything there is to know about Risa Clay, including the vicious betrayal she endured years ago and the distrust she's harbored ever since. The only way for the Elite Ops agent to uncover an assassin—and banish the ghosts of his own dark past—is to use Risa as bait. But nothing has prepared him for her disarming blend of innocence and sensuality, or for his overwhelming need to protect her…

Risa has spent six years rebuilding her life. And now, to save it, she must pose as Micah's lover and draw a killer into the open. It's a risky plan—especially with a man as powerfully seductive as Micah. But, as their charade becomes reality, Risa realizes the greatest danger may lie in losing her heart forever…

Action, romance drama....what more can you asked for? love it!

One of the most well-written romances I've ever read. This writer has a real gift for drama. The over the top stuff is par for the course in romance writing, but she manages to make it seem almost believable. Incredible sexuality too.

I think most men would be shocked at what we can pick up at the library and read on our lunch hours.

This is a great read. Maverick has to be one of my favorite out of this series. Very good book!

Really bad. The alpha male is taken to the's way over the top. He is more like an animal than a man. Conversely, it was so bad that I read the whole thing...I kept thinking it couldn't get worse...but it did.

The best book in the Elite Ops Series!

Lora Leigh knows how to capture her audience. Within the first chapter you'll be getting all hot and heavy with the characters.
Hands down a great read
