Review and Giveaway: Dark Deceptions by Dee Davis

THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED
Dark Deceptions by Dee Davis
Here's what the book says:
A-Tac is an elite CIA unit masquerading as faculty at an Ivy League college. Brilliant, badass, and seemingly bulletproof, the members of A-Tac are assigned to the riskiest missions and the most elusive targets.

TORN BETWEEN DUTY AND DESIRE
Covert operations expert Nash Brennon has spent the last eight years trying to forget Annie Gallagher, his former field partner and the only woman he ever loved. Annie betrayed him when he needed her most, then vanished without a trace. Now suddenly she's back in the game - this time as a suspected traitor and threat to national security.

Annie's son has been kidnapped by political terrorists. The price for his life? Assassinate a UN ambassador. When Nash and his group find her, the smoldering passion between Annie and the man she swore she'd never contact again blazes out of control. But can Nash trust her? The stakes couldn't be higher: Their enemy's endgame is personal, and one false move could cost them their lives.


About the Author:
Dee Davis has a BA in Political Science and History, and a Masters Degree in Public Administration. During a ten-year career in public relations, she spent three years on the public speaking circuit, edited two newsletters, wrote three award winning public service announcements, did television and radio commercials, starred in the Seven Year Itch, taught college classes, lobbied both the Texas State Legislature and the US Congress, and served as the director of two associations.

Her highly acclaimed first novel, Everything In Its Time, was published in July 2000. Since then, among others, she’s won the Booksellers Best, Golden Leaf, Texas Gold and Prism awards, and been nominated for the National Readers Choice Award, the Holt and two RT Reviewers Choice Awards. To date, she has sold eighteen books and three novellas, including Chain Reaction and A Match Made on Madison.
She’s lived in Austria and traveled in Europe extensively. And although she now lives in Manhattan she still calls Texas home.

Here's what I say:
This book is the first in a series of three and I just can't wait for the next two! The love/hate relationship between Nash and Annie is incredible. Davis is a very talented author with a gift for imagery. The basic plot may be a old on - love lost, found again at time of great turmoil and forced to trust each other again. But Davis injects new romance and suspense into a much used story structure. For most part the book is all action, just a few romps in between to make it interesting. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to the next two - Dangerous Desires out July 1, 2010 and Desperate Deeds due out August 2, 2010. Just a little heads-up, the series in on of those that has the same setting but the main characters change.

  1. This series sounds wonderful!!!

    I haven't read a ton of suspense romance novels but one that I remember and have on my keeper shelf is Kiss And Tell by Cherry Adair. It's on the hot side....which I do love...and is a great adventure to boot!!!

  8. I just joined your Cooking up Reviews. My daughter is getting her first apartment this fall and one of our summer projects is to fix her a cookbook filled with recipes that she has already tried. One of her main requests was recipes for the crock-pot and she and her roommates don't want the cooking to cut into their study time. I was tickled to see the word Crock-Pot as soon as I visited your site.
    As there are going to be 3 apartments with 4 girls in each they want to to a monthly supper where each apartment cooks one part of the meal. So we are on the lookout for new and easy recipes.
