Killer Secret by Lora Leigh
Lora Leigh's website
(Erotic Romance Suspense)
4 1/2 stars
Killer Secret is the 5th installment to the "Tempting SEALs" books. I know that two of the "Tempting SEALs" stories are found on two of her anthology books. But I never got copy of it yet. So I read mostly the books that are non - anthology. There are 3 of them. I notice there is 6th installment, but it in the anthology of "Rescue Me" which is releasing in July 2008. So far, there are "Tempting SEALs" book already published. I love Lora Leigh "Tempting SEALs" books. I really like this book, but had a hard time writing a review on it because I fear I couldn't write it without sounding stupid. So it took me while longer to post it. I'm sure it doesn't make half of sense now...but hopefully it understandable.
Ex-Navy SEALs Ian Richards, is illegitimate son of Diego Fuentes, who joined his father's drug cartel for reason no one know. He face danger at every turn that neither his father nor his fellow Navy SEALs knows which side he's fighting for or against. But that is exactly the way he wanted it to be. He was deemed as a traitor to his country by his men who he had fought with, protect as brother. But things become complicated when Kira Porter, an undercover agent for the Department of Homeland Security, get in his way and put her nose in his business. And no matter how much he tried to remember the fact that she is strong enough to protect herself, he couldn't help but feel he must be sure she is safe from Fuentes before his plan. But Kara think she can see beneath Ian agenda. But the truth is, he kept her guessing at every turn. And she brought Ian attention, an attraction that can not be ignore.
No matter what Kira intention are, between her job as undercover agent or her loves for Ian, she knew she will be on Ian side. And even though Ian think he hidden the truth from her, she know Ian more better than he think. They have known each other many years, to know one another are thinking.
With Ian's team getting in his way, thing going to get complicated. But times is running out and pretty soon the stake is high. Would he be able to finish the mission he planned or would things get more complicated.
You will met up with the previous characters again and see what been happen to them since their HEA. Also you will notice that Ian and Kira attraction started from previous book, "Hidden Agendas".
Killer Secret is a erotic romance suspense with great in depth writing. It had action and very explicit scenes that bring hot air through the pages. You can feel the love between the main characters as their attraction become deep. A very great read! Pick it up if you see it near you!
