Overview

As the demolitions expert for A-Tac, a black-ops CIA unit masquerading as Ivy League faculty, Tyler Hanson has two great loves: literature and explosives. She lives by the motto "Duty First" and doesn't have time for personal attachments . . . until a steamy one-night stand turns into a professional partnership.

BURNED BY BETRAYAL
When Tyler meets Owen Wakefield, a handsome British operative, she seduces him with no intention of ever seeing him again. But then the sexy Brit is brought into A-Tac, and despite Tyler's efforts to keep her distance, she finds herself falling for him. Trusting him.

Owen seems too good to be true - and he is. He's hiding his true motives and identity, and no matter how he feels about Tyler, he can't keep her secrets. One of A-Tac's members has turned traitor and helped terrorists to hijack a shipment of nuclear weapons. As witnesses start dying and evidence starts disappearing, Owen and Tyler must race to find the mole - and prevent a final, cataclysmic act of destruction.

Karma is a fickle mistress that will not be controlled or tamed even though we try to manipulate it and pretend it is coincidence that created the mess we are in. At times it is truly Karma that puts you right where you are supposed to be and we accept that everything happens for a reason. Tyler Hanson is the daughter of an iconic Army General who taught her to never give up and training Tyler to control her decisions and destiny. Prepared to handle anything after her stint in the army she joined the secretive American Tactical Intelligence Command (A-Tac) group as their munitions expert. This background is how she came to lead the team that was transporting a top secret military weapon one night on a dark stretch of road. It was a well calculated plan to accomplish the mission but unforeseen incidents and ghosts from the past create a terrible incident that lead to death and the confiscation of the government weapon by an unknown enemy. With all the problems and bad scenarios that arose from the theft the ray of hope that Tyler never believed would appear was in the form of a man. But when she meets the British MI-5's Intelligent Agent Owen Wakefield what a great problem he turned out to be. Yet after her recovery and amazing debriefing by Owen it soon becomes clear that Tyler was not on the mission by accident it was a direct order given by her father. Why her father was involved, why he wanted A-Tac there, and in particular Tyler to be the lead with this weapon transport was unclear. Most important of all who knew outside of A-Tac that this mission was going to happen and set this disaster in motion. Too many things on A-Tac missions are going wrong, too many dangerous mistakes being made and lives are being put at risk. This was not Karma or coincidence this was a human created scenario that Tyler and the entire team was going to figure out and solve. But the more Tyler investigates the more questions arise about her father, his friends and especially Owen's mysterious past and questionable involvement with A-Tac. They were drawn to one another from the moment they met but both of them have so many secrets and figuring out which one of them is holding back the most painful one will either turn everything around for the recovery mission, uncover the mole is or destroy everything including their relationship. They may be working with each other and walking into a relationship but without trust no amount of Karma will help until you let your guard down and tell the truth. Life may not be a romance novel but it sure can be fun and full of love if you just trust your heart and go with your first impressions. This book is the 3rd in the series and while I dislike picking favorites this one is the clear choice for perfect with me. You have the drama, the suspense, the military secrets, more suspense and best of all two wonderful characters that just can't stop being amazing and full of life which jumps out at you on every page. Good job Dee Davis I hope this series continues even though I fear it will not. Mary Gramlich is The Reading Reviewer located www.marygramlich.com

I loved the whole A-Tac Series. I love being able to finish one and got right to the next one. Very good.

"Desperate Deeds' did not live up to its predecessors. The plot does have a few twists, and the male protagonist is a debonair, conflicted Brit. The heroine is determined and skillful. But, the plot soon became plodding. I had to force myself to keep reading.
