"Deadly Games" is yet another winner for me from Jaycee Clark. It's almost scary how well she writes her villains. And it doesn't seem to matter if they are male or female, she imbues them with a sense of menace and absolute amorality.

Rori is ready to retire. Her unique upbringing and parental situation resulted in the perfect contract killer--the Raven. Her job has made her extremely wealthy even though she's careful to screen her jobs in an effort to make sure those she kills really need killing. But there's something 'off' with this last job offer and Rori decides to investigate even more closely than normal. What she finds is her alter-ego in male form.

Ian is a master of disguise and works so deeply undercover, sometimes it's hard to remember just who he really is. When his covers are blown as he rescues a small child from a porn ring, he sets into play the plans he's had for all these years...with one difference...the Raven will be coming with him.

Thrills and chills just aren't enough to describe these books by Jaycee Clark. She makes you believe in her characters and this book where both hero and heroine are killers is a prime example. It would have been hard for me to imagine a story with lead characters who were killers that I would enjoy...yet here it is. I liked both Rori and Ian. Their characters and morals may be different from mine, but in their world those morals are necessary to keep the rest of 'us' safe. Two flawed individuals who work together to save a child and end up saving themselves. I've already ordered book three and sent the author an email to ask about book five. I like this series that much.

This was my first book by this author and I absolutely loved it... I had a hard time putting it down. I love the interaction between Rori and Ian, how their relationship developed over the course of the story with all the suspense and side stories that just meld together so great; I must say I was hung on every page. I can't wait to read the other stories about the Kinncaid family and I hope there is more to come. Jaycee Clark, you've got a new fan...

5 Thrilling Stars!  Thirteen years ago, Ian Kinncaid's life took a radical turn when during a heated argument his father disowned him—threw him out and told him never to come home. On his own, without his family’s money and power, Ian joined the Army, becoming a Ranger. But after a couple of missions, he was approached by a U.S. intelligence agency and went to work for a different division of the government. A master at disguise, he’s been working undercover in Prague for the last five years as an enforcer known as “The Reaper,” the right-hand man for an Eastern European crime boss. But someone has just killed the man he works for, blowing his cover.  Lenora “Rori” Maitland has lived her life the way she’s wanted it. After retiring from MI5/MI6, she’s her own woman, few friends, no husband, and that is the way she bloody well prefers it. After all, her job—a contract killer known as “The Raven”—is hardly normal. But when offered five million dollars to kill “The Reaper,” something about the job feels … “off.” And when she discovers “The Reaper” has no documented past, she wonders if he isn’t actually an undercover government agent.   Ian and Rori’s paths cross when they stumble upon a child pornography ring, and she saves him from being shot. Mutually horrified by what they discover, they join forces to rescue a traumatized five-year-old girl. Having been estranged from his family for well over a decade, and with his deep cover blown, Ian now needs a safe place to put the little girl they saved from the Czech underground. But the shadows cloak many enemies, and trust comes at too high a cost … Deadly Games, the fourth installment in Jaycee Clark's Kinncaid Brother series, is a well-written, romantic suspense thriller that reads a lot like a fast-paced spy novel. As always, Ms. Clark blends sensual romance and danger into a provocative story that will leave you cheering for the villain’s demise. When it comes to hot, sexy alpha-heroes, it doesn’t get much better than the Kinncaid brothers! Ian has secretly remained in contact with his brothers throughout the years, and has appeared in each of the last three books when crises occurred that required his unique skills and training. I loved how Ian—super spy extraordinaire—developed such intense fatherly feelings for the little girl they rescued, and how very protective he was of her. And Rori was just the type heroine I like—sexy, intelligent, and lethal with a wonderfully dry sense of humor. Or perhaps it was her use of Brit slang, either way she brought much needed humor to such a serious subject. Both the hero and heroine were flawed individuals with lots of baggage, yet they understand and accept each other for who they are. Another highly recommended read, Deadly Games is an action-packed, highly suspenseful story and emotional read of desire, the power of love, healing, and the strength of family ties with a satisfying HEA. Content Warning: this story deals with sex crimes and explicitly details the horror of child pornography.

Exceptional. A MUST READ. If you liked Brockmann's Troubleshooters and miss them as much as I do, then you will like this book. Currently, this book is the last of the series (if you want to read them in order). I hope and pray that there are more books and a spin-off to come. You will not regret this purchase.

I read all four in the series. Each one is definately a page turner. I wasn't even interested in TV. Jaycee Clark was a new author to me and she is terrific. It was great to follow the story of the Kinncaid family because you feel like you really know them. You feel lost when you are done with the series. Kind of "what do I read now?"
