Nick McCall is an FBI Special Agent who has spent the last six years working undercover. The Roberto Martino case has led to another potential suspect who has laundered money for Martino’s organization. Jordan Rhodes owns a wine business, is the daughter of a billionaire and the twin of man who is now in prison for computer hacking. She’s been invited to the suspect’s gala event and is the FBI’s ticket to gaining entry to his establishment to place listening devices. I really enjoyed this story, primarily because of the characters. Nick is given more dimension through his interactions with his family, providing another perspective of the hard-edged G-man. Jordan is interesting, witty and self-confident without being arrogant. She’s quick and the dialogue with Nick […]

Cameron Lynde happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and inadvertently glimpsed a man who had just committed murder. She’s an Assistant U.S. Attorney in Chicago and finds herself needing witness protection as police and the FBI search for the killer. Unfortunately, the FBI Special Agent assigned to the case is Jack Pallas and the two of them have a history that’s not good. They soon find themselves dealing with new emotions that provide many moments of sexual tension that both find hard to resist. Julie James is a new author for me and I’m now an instant fan. This story is well written with a delicious mix of humor, suspense, mystery and romance. The secondary characters are also well developed and […]
