Every family has its secrets…

As the first anniversary of her marriage to Vice President Nick Cappuano approaches, Lieutenant Sam Holland is dreaming of Bora Bora—sun, sand and a desperately needed break from the DC grind. But real life has a way of intervening, and Sam soon finds herself taking on one of the most perplexing cases of her career.

Government worker Josh Hamilton begs Sam to investigate his shocking claim that his parents stole him from another family thirty years ago. More complicated still, his "father" is none other than the FBI director. When a member of Josh's family is brutally murdered, Sam begins to question how deep this cover-up goes. Is it possible the revered director was part of a baby-napping ring and that others involved are also targets?

With a killer intent on deadly revenge and her team still reeling from a devastating loss, Sam's plate is full—and when Nick and their son, Scotty, take ill, is her dream of a tropical anniversary celebration in peril too?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Force's skill is also evident in the way that she develops the characters, from the murdered and mutilated senator to the detective and chief of staff who are trying to solve the case. The heroine, Sam, is especially complex and her secrets add depth to this mystery... This novel is The O.C. does D.C., and you just can't get enough."
-RT Book Reviews on Fatal Affair (4½ stars)

"Force pushes the boundaries by deftly using political issues like immigration to create an intricate mystery."
-RT Book Reviews on Fatal Consequences (4 stars)

"The romance, the mystery, the ongoing story lines...everything about these books has me sitting on the edge of my seat and begging for more. I am anxiously awaiting the next in the series. I give Fatal Deception an A."

"The suspense is thick, the passion between Nick and Sam just keeps getting hotter and hotter."
-Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews on Fatal Deception

"The perfect mesh of mystery and romance." -Night Owl Reviews on Fatal Scandal (5 stars)

I love this book it was very gripping. It actually had me crying big alligator tears. I won't get into the actual story but I will say that it was very good to see how you brought out the problems of dyslexia. I know quite a few people that have that and bringing it attention is really good. Hoping there's more books in the Fatal series. Marianne Mitchell

I am still completely in LOVE with the “Fatal series” from Marie Force! Sam and Nick are right up there with Eve and Rourke from the “In Death” series as my all-time favorite romance series couples. Fatal Identity is the tenth book in the series and it is just as good as the first. Sam and Nick are about to celebrate their one year wedding anniversary, but it will be a close call to making good on their getaway. Sam is put on suspension for her altercation with Ramsey and is waiting to hear if she will be prosecuted or not. Josh Hamilton, the son of the FBI Director, shows up and will only deal with Sam regarding his suspicion that he is not really a Hamilton, but a stolen baby from 30 years ago. Gonzo is still not handling his loss of his partner well and may lose Christine and his son. And for the first time, Nick is very sick, along with Scotty, which makes Sam realize she can’t be everywhere at once and learns to delegate more to her team. There are many twists and turns in this book that had me worried at times for my HEA, but it happened and I couldn’t be happier. It is like catching up with old friends every time I read a new Fatal book with Sam and Nick and all the secondary characters. Off they go on their Bora Bora trip and I can imagine them very happy for now!

The 10th book in the Sam and Nick saga proves to be more adrenaline charged and gut wrenching than the last. Even being placed on suspension, as a result of her physical confrontation with a fellow officer, doesn't keep Sam from getting involved in a case involving the higher echelons of the FBI. This book really hit me, as a new mother. I can't begin to grasp how I could survive my child being stolen from me. But this is exactly the catalyst for the plot in Fatal Identity. Josh Hamilton, unexpectedly sees his likeness in an age progressed photo of Taylor Rollins, kidnapped as an infant, and seeks out the aid of Sam Holland. This leads to a murder of a high profile individual and an abduction at gun point. All is not as it seems in the Hamilton household. Sam has to dig deep to find the answers. I love that Marie Force takes the time to develop her main as well as her supporting characters. Sam is growing into her second role as Second Lady and is also learning to balance her work and her private life. Gonzo is having to deal with the grief of losing his partner. Freddy must help Elin cope with the dangers of his job. Avery struggles with the love he feels for Shelby and the unexplainable attraction he still feels for Sam. Once you finish this book, sign up for Marie's Newsletter for bonus content. You'll love the after epilogue, which goes into further detail of Sam's anniversary surprise for Nick and their return trip to Bora Bora. I won an Advanced Reader Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.

This is one of my favorite series by Marie Force and this book is one of my favorites in the series. I fell in love with Nick and Sam from the first page and book one of this series. This book does not disappoint! This book has mystery, tenderness and some hot scenes! We see Shelby and Avery as well as other favorites in this book . Nick and Avery come to an agreement about Sam! Can't tell you what it is because you will have to read the book to find out why and what it is! Sam continues to juggle be a cop, mom, wife and second lady. Once I started reading this book as with all of the others I could not put it down! This is a series that has to be read in order from the beginning but once you start you will not want to stop! Thank you Marie Force for another great read and I can not wait for the next one in this series or for that matter just any book written by her!

What a thriller, so many questions, twists and turns. I couldn't read fast enough! The indepth secondary storyline of the dangers and feelings the boys and girls in blue experience in their everyday roles as protectors of society, lends a unique insight into their relationships with each other and the communities they serve. Makes one believe that blue lives matter more that most credit them to.
