Overview

In Deadly Deception, the second romantic suspense novel in Alexa Grace's Deadly Series, enter the disturbing world of illegal adoptions, baby trafficking and murder with new detective Lane Hansen and private investigator Frankie Douglas.

Lane Hansen has a problem. He needs a woman to portray his wife in an undercover operation and the only females on his team are either very pregnant or built like linebackers who prefer the other team. Then he remembers gorgeous P.I. Frankie Douglas -- a woman who could take his breath away by her beauty and take him down in 2.5 seconds. Unfortunately, she's the same woman he treated like a one night stand six months before.

Frankie Douglas has a problem. She wants to rid the world of one baby trafficking killer. The only way to do that is to partner with Lane Hanson, the man who hurt her by disappearing from her life after a night of mind-blowing sex.

They've been warned! Getting personally involved with a partner can put cases and lives at risk. Going undercover as husband and wife, Lane and Frankie struggle to keep their relationship strictly professional as their sizzling passion threatens to burn out of control.

Deadly Deception is a fast paced thriller romance mystery. Does that make sense? There is action, adventure and some HOT HOT scenes. Ms. Grace has written a great 2nd installment to her Deadly Trilogy. The romance is very believable with past issues between Lane and Frankie.

3 Stars - Book two in the Deadly Series by Alexa Grace. Detective Lane Hansen has a problem—someone killed a young girl and dumped her body in the woods. When he learns that the victim recently placed her baby for adoption he suspects the agency may actually be a high-stakes baby-trafficking ring. But in order to go undercover convincingly, he’ll need a partner. And there isn’t a female detective in the sheriff’s office suitable for this operation.  Frankie Douglas is a private investigator who always gets the job done. Six months ago, she and Lane had a night of explosive sex—for hours and hours. And in the morning he was gone. Just like that. No goodbye. Nothing. Leaving her like the victim of a one-night-stand. Now he needs her help. In order to catch a baby-trafficking killer, Frankie will have to partner with the man who broke her heart. And going under cover as husband and wife means that Lane and Frankie will have to keep their relationship strictly professional, because getting personally involved with a partner can put cases and lives at risk.  But what Frankie doesn’t know is that this case is about to become more personal than she could ever imagine … An entertaining read, I probably would have given the book a higher rating if the epub hadn’t been so poorly formatted—unfortunately, that’s something that takes away from the enjoyment of a story for me. Interesting characters with great chemistry and a thrilling plot, Deadly Deception is a fun, sexy, suspenseful, quick read with a satisfying HEA.

Alexa Grace is talented but wastes much of her talent by the use of profanity and detailed sexual scenes. She does add these is a tasteful way but I find many of us cannot recommend her books nor add them to our libraries because of these two problems. The story consists of the two primary characters of Frankie & Lane. The story line is captivating and romantic with the element of intrigue & diversity in various situations. It is very predictable but interesting. For light reading it can be entertaining if you overlook the sexual descriptions and profanity. I won this in a giveaway and would have loved adding it in my library along with her other writings if unnecessary language and descriptive sexuality had been left to one's imagination.

I could not wait to read this book after reading the first book of this series. I was not disapointed! This book was great and I could not put it down. Characters were great and believable and the story held you in from the beginning. Can' t wait for the next one. I wish Barnes and Noble would offer all her books like Kindle does.

This second book was just as good as the first. Only complaint is the love scenes, they were sort of flat. But all-n-all good story.

Another brilliant piece of work from Alexa Grace!  Profile of Evil might just be her best book yet!  Profile of Evil has a heart-stopping plot with the handsome Brody Chase coming to the rescue.  Sheriff Brody Chase is one hell of a "knock your socks off" man.  Once you pick up this book you won't want to put it down, so prepare for a late night of reading!  Alexa, thank you for your amazing work, and I can't wait to read the next book in the Profile series!
