He's everything she craves. She's everything he dreads.

Sensory Ops, Book 4

Journalist Lana Quinn has a way with hard-hitting news. The story she's uncovered has potential, but she needs the help of her best friend's FBI team. She's been rescued by them, worked with them, and partied with them, but convincing the second in command to believe her theory-that a killer's touch sets off a lethal allergic reaction-is a frustrating challenge.

Especially since he excites her, body and mind. He's a danger she shouldn't indulge.

Aidan Burgess is resistant to helping Lana, but not for the reason she thinks. She has a knack for landing herself in trouble, which means she needs protection. Protecting her means staying near her, a journalist, who like all journalists uses whatever-and whomever-it takes to get her story. It's a case he wants to refuse.

Especially since she lights a fire in his blood. She's a danger he can't afford.

As Lana follows up on lead after deadly lead, learning to trust and rely on each other becomes their only lifesaving hope. If their pride doesn't become their final pitfall.

Warning: This title contains a grudge-holding hero who gives "kiss my ass" new meaning, a heroine out to prove herself, and a danger that dares them to trust.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Erotic love scenes combined with intoxicating and addictive characters make Scent of Persuasion a book I will read quite often.”
—Joyfully Reviewed

“…a taut, fast paced story, filled with hot and heavy passion and imaginative sex, and twists and surprises that catch you when you aren’t expecting it.”
—Long and Short Reviews on Sounds to Die By

“This non-stop action, thrilling suspense tale had me biting my nails with great anticipation until the dramatic conclusion made its appearance.”
—Fallen Angel Reviews on Scent of Persuasion

Library Journal
Lana and Aidan have grudgingly worked cases together before, he as a special agent FBI team member and she as a journalist. It was not the most pleasant of working experiences except for the steam they generated. Now Lana is on to a new story that she thinks will be big, if she can get anyone else to believe her. Aidan, against his better judgment, gets involved mainly to keep Lana from endangering herself. If readers haven’t dipped into the previous titles in the series (this is Book 4), they might be a little lost as to who is who and what is going on; it feels like the first ten chapters of the book are missing. There are moments when the wording makes one think this novel might have a fantastical side, too, but it never appears. The use of more derogatory names for acts of passion might make you think this work verges on erotica, but nothing comes of it. It’s intimated that the couple have a wild sex life, but there are no scenes for the reader. The whole book seems to be a contradiction, which is not a good thing.

Verdict If you have read/bought the rest of the series, go for it; otherwise, not recommended.—Ryan A. Franklin, Mattoon P.L., IL

    A Killing Touch by Nikki Duncan The journalist Lana Quinn is ho

    A Killing Touch by Nikki Duncan
    The journalist Lana Quinn is hot on the trail of a new breakthrough but she needs the help of the team. They set up a meeting and it was Aiden Burgess that showed up. She explained to him her thoughts given the facts she had accumulated and they discussed it over lunch.
    They had a fling, hot wild sex and it's on again. He will look into her theory but her ex, Nigel phones to say another body is being brought into the ME's office.
    Hard with all the onslaught of names to figure out who's who til a few chapters in and then you realize there are teams of people working together.
    Another female in the team wants everybody to be happy as a couple as she is and strives to get people hooked up.
    The investigation goes on as she finds other clues and they all try to search for the common threads of all the deaths, the thing they have in common.
    The others have all died due to an allergy reaction that someone is somehow injecting into them. Clues are coming in fast and she almost dies from being injected herself. Kind of like a warning to back off. Til Aiden finds out who her father is he's glad he called him.
    More clues and more deaths and the number of suspects is dwindling...
    Love the plants and what they mean to the human body..
    At the sites where I posted my review I did give the book 5 stars out of 5. I love learning new things, especially the plants in this one. Subject is interesting as long as there's not a lot of blood and gore. This kind of reminded me of revolution where you need to survive on your skills.
