When Athena Academy graduate and designer Sasha Bracciali goes undercover to rescue an Athena student with special talents who's being held in a small European country, the mob princess and FBI informant discovers the job is more challenging than she'd anticipated. She's glad that special agent Jeff Crossman, her FBI handler and new lover, has followed her to Europe and is more than willing to help her finish the job. Kate Donovan's Charade (4.5), the third installment in the Athena Force series, does a fantastic job of keeping up the excitement and pace of the previous books. Sasha is the perfect depiction of a strong Athena women. Fans of the series will love the fast pace and nonstop action.
