After waiting five years for her missing husband to be declared legally dead, Fiona Kennedy decides to have a sexy fling. Surprisingly, two handsome candidates walk through the door of her antiquarian bookshop on the very same day.

Working for Avalon, a secret company that specializes in tracking down stolen art and antiquities, Griffith Laughton has had more than his share of deadly experiences. Five years ago, several operatives were killed during the attempted capture of villain Rainert von Lahr. Since then, bagging von Lahr has been top on Griff's list. Suddenly, another opportunity arises when Avalon gets a tip that von Lahr is interested in a hidden message contained with a forged manuscript. The only person who can translate the message is the unsuspecting Fiona. It is Griff's job to get close and protect Fiona. Considering the electricity between them, that won't be much of
a hardship.

Sexy romance and high-octane escapades spice up Albert's amazing new offering. This fourth interconnected novel jumps into high gear and takes readers on terrific ride. Good romantic suspense is always a pleasure. (May, 384 pp., $6.99)

Hide in Plain Sight

Submitted by Robin in PA on August 3, 2012 - 10:25pm.

Fiona Kennedy is ready to celebrate. Years ago her husband drove his car into the river. His body was never found. Now that he has been declared dead, Fiona decides it's time to get on with her life. She sees her chance when a handsome lawyer approaches her, asking her to authenticate a manuscript for his client. But Grif Laughter is not really an attorney. He is a mercenary working for Avalon Investigations tasked with keeping Fiona safe while using her as bait to capture a trafficker of stolen art.

I enjoyed the characters in this book. Fiona is a strong, independent woman who has no TSTL moments. This is a bit unusual in a romantic suspense book. Grif may be a mercenary, but he isn't the cold emotionless guy you see in many of these type of books. The villain was in the previous book and I won't be surprised if we see him again in this series. My rating: 4.5 Stars.
