Overview

Money dictates the rules of this game and the victim could be anybody regardless of sex, age, or race.

When high-end antiques dealer, Hailey Devlin, discovers her business partner's boyfriend has bankrupted their company, she sets out to expose the thief. Unknown to Hailey, her target is involved in a brutal trafficking ring where human lives are sold off to the highest bidder and she fits the next customer's order perfectly. She awakens to a world she can't remember. An alluring man claims to be her husband-a man who seems both to want and reject her. Is this amnesia or something much more sinister?

ICE Agent Patrick Roark jumped at the chance to put his training to the test on an elite human trafficking squad of Homeland Security. Undercover as the bodyguard to the ring leader, and key suspect in a murder case, proves more than he bargained for. Masterminding a clever deception, he's determined to keep the next victim safe, even if the high-stakes operation costs him everything-including his heart. Can they survive a killer's wrath? And if they do, will the lies be too damaging for their love to endure?

Meet the Author

Melissa started writing back in the 7th grade as a way to escape and create new worlds where she was in control. If a book or movie didn't end like she wanted or thought it should, no problem. She just rewrote it. This made for some interesting conversations with teachers when trying to do those dreaded book reports. Suspense and thrillers are her favorites, but she enjoys writing young adult and children's books for a change of pace. An element of suspense and mystery drive these stories as well.
Born and raised in Texas, she tends to dream big and believes good conquers all. Her husband and three kids mean the world to her and keep her on her toes. When not writing, she loves spending time with her family, camping, skiing, photography, and painting. See more from Melissa at: www.melissaohnoutka.com

This is one incredible romantic suspense. Melissa Ohnoutka grabs hold of you from page one and refuses to let go until the last word on the last page. Excellent!

This book has it all...love, murder, forgiveness, hatred, characters you love and characters you hate! Left me clueless(not to mention breathless) until the last page. A must read!

Exciting read from start to finish. Hailey is spunky and Roark is perfect as the Protector. Keeps you guessing right to the end. Highly recommended.

Faithful Deceptions was one hell of a ride, from the first sentence to the last! It'll keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat. And just when you think you've got it figured out, you'll end up changing your mind as soon as you turn the page. The suspense is top-notch and keeps building at a near-frantic pace (a good thing :). The characters are well-drawn and likeable. I couldn't help but feel compassion for both Hailey and Patrick and I wondered how in the world the author would resolve the "big secret" between them...but Melissa did a marvelous job of concluding this story! If you like romantic suspense, don't miss Faithful Deceptions!

Hailey is a strong woman determined to get back what was taken from her. During her struggle to overcome being wronged, she finds herself thrown into something worse then she could have ever thought. Her strength keeps her going when most women would have given up. Patrick is a strong secretive male, able to lie to do his job no matter the cost, but what happens when the lies cross over to truths? How does Patrick deal with it then? This book has a great plot, and kept me wondering what the real story was as it was trying to unfold. The author did a good job of keeping my mind turning back and forth trying to figure out what would happen, and exactly what the big mystery was. The romance of the book was sweet and intense, and you were pulling for them to overcome the obstacles from the time they first got together until the end of the book. The connection between Patrick and Hailey was natural and was easy to understand. The author did a great job writing the book, bringing conversations through to closure, and giving depth to the scenes and the plot. The style was natural and progressed well. I did find a few times where I was a bit confused as to what was happening at the start of a chapter, but I quickly figured it out. As a Debut Novel for Melissa Ohnoutka, this was a great one to start off. I looked forward to reading more of her work as she continues to grow.

Treat yourself to this hair-raising thriller where the suspense is ratcheted with every page turned. I fell in love with Patrick...who doesn't love a dark, handsome, hero with a secret. And Hailey proves her strength is the perfect match for him.

Couldn't put it down! When's the next one?

Don't miss this one! Hooked me and kept me turning the page. I usually shy away from Romantic Suspense novels because of the explicit sex. Not the case here. If you love a great suspense, I highly recommend picking this one up.

I dont read romance novels and after reading this, I remembered why. This love-at-first glance was predictable. I could pretty much guess what was coming next but I really didnt care enough about the characters to care.
