The Woman in Black

Every intelligence operative in Washington D.C.knows her name ... but little else.

A tough Navy Seal with a reputation for efficiency, Steve McMillan has heard all the stories about the "world's most glamorous assassin." But nothing prepared him for the goddess in tight black leather who now stands before him. Marlena is his new assignment -- his superiors in the shadow world of secret missions want him to get information and then turn her over. McMillan is the consummate professional, but dealing with this beautiful enigma is playing with fire. To trust her would be crazy -- as crazy as following his burning desire for her to its passionate conclusion.

Because there's something beyond the yearning in her eyes and the inviting softness of her lips. Dark clouds are circling around Marlena Maxwell, drawing Steve along with her into a lethal game of deception and betrayal. And perhaps the deadliest mistake they could both make would be to fall in love ...

First Chapter

Into Danger

Chapter One

Washington, D.C.

There were many ways of kissing a woman. And many reasons to taste her. There were kisses that asked permission. And then there were kisses that sought an answer.

Steve McMillan had once assured the amused leader of Black STAR, his elite covert operations team, that there was a difference, at Admiral Jack Madison's bachelor party when things had gotten a bit rowdy, and the topic a bit ... salty among the men. In real, everyday life, Steve McMillan wouldn't have dared bring up kissing and women, but everyone was having a good time ribbing the admiral about his young bride, and how he was going to kiss her after the ceremony. When someone brought up the subject of kissing ... well, everyone started hooting his name to give advice to the old man.

It wasn't as if the admiral needed lessons, Steve reflected wryly, as he recalled the festivities from a year ago. If there was a man who didn't have to work at looking good, his leader was the one. In his early fifties, he still rated enough female sighs in the navy grapevine. But the navy grapevine had voted Steve McMillan the Best Kisser of the Millennium during some cornball poll on a website that had somehow became public snicker fodder on the naval bases. So now his buddies teased him mercilessly.

That was okay. Steve McMillan liked kissing women.

Which was not what he should be thinking about right now. He looked across the room at his target. She was a lot taller than he had expected; dressed in black leather, she made a striking figure standing against the bar, calmly sipping a drink. She didn't look like she was waiting forsomeone. Her stance was relaxed, her smile a little bored. One or two men had approached with interested smiles, but she had sent them away with a few words.

In the dark corner of the bar, he had been watching her for almost an hour now, and her patience seemed endless, because she hadn't glanced once at her watch or looked around at the patrons. She didn't fidget with her dark auburn hair. She didn't make small conversation. She didn't smoke. Once in a while she would turn around and lean back on her elbows to watch the baseball game in progress on a giant television set above the bar.

At exactly an hour later, she finished her drink, picked up the small suitcase by the bar stool, and walked off. She didn't look back, so she didn't see the appreciative glances admiring her long, leather-encased, shapely legs. Steve stood up and followed. It was dark and cool outside. He pulled on his jean jacket as he looked around for the woman. She was nowhere to be seen. He turned the corner, keeping to the shadows.

He was a trained operative. He knew not to show his training. So he allowed her to have the advantage for now.

Movement. Speed.

He was pinned hard against the wall, and a husky voice, whiskey-laced, drawled in his ear, "It's been an hour, sweet-heart. If you plan to make a move, you mustn't make a lady wait."

Steve angled his head sideways, and the light out of the windows was just enough for him to make out her face. Her eyes gleamed back, no fear in them. Her lips were temptingly close and perfectly shaped.

There were kisses that stole. And there were kisses that gave away secrets. Steve wondered which kind would persuade a hired assassin to reveal who her target was.

Her strength didn't surprise him. After all, everything he had profiled about Marlena Maxwell showed a woman who knew how to take care of herself. What caught him by surprise was how his body responded to her. From his table watching her, he had appreciated her tall, sultry beauty, but up close and personal, the appreciation became a growing private interest.

"What's the matter?" she asked, when he didn't say a word. "Don't you like it when a woman comes after you?"

"It depends on what she's after," Steve answered.

"Oh? Like what?"

"I don't mind a lady after my body," Steve replied dryly, "but I do draw the line if it's my dead body."

She pushed an elbow hard against his lower back, forcing him to buckle against the wall. "Let's not bicker over details. It would save me time if you introduce yourself," she said, still in that husky drawl, "and I hope you don't mind. I have to make sure you aren't armed, sweetheart."

Damn, but the woman's elbow was sharp. The hard stucco of the building cut into the side of his face. "No problem," Steve assured her. "Look all you want."

She slid a hand into his jean jacket, checking for secret pockets. Then her hand glided down his chest to his jeans, obviously knowledgeable about the places a man could hide a weapon.

"Lower," Steve suggested, reckless desire spurring him now, "and you might find something loaded."

There was a pause. Her eyes looked into his for a moment, then she took up his challenge. And went lower.

Steve didn't blink. Or breathe. The woman, if nothing else, was bold. He supposed there was a first time for everything, even having his zipper down in front of a bar. He vaguely wondered what she would do if someone came out right now, but there was no time to think of such things when a woman's hand was down his pants. She felt cool against his skin, moving left then right. And she certainly was taking her time ...

They replace the captured driver with US Navy Seal Steve McMillan whose assignment is to learn the identity of Marlena¿s next victim........................ From the first moment when Marlena manhandles Steve, he finds himself quite attracted to her. Shocking to the proficient killer, Marlena finds she is also distracted as Steve shows courage and a dry sense of humor even when his wrong gun is loaded.

    This book grabs you from the first page

    Gennita Low¿s debut novel is a heart stopping good time. It is full of intrigue, suspense and most of all sizzle. Steve ¿Stash¿ McMillan is a Navy Seal, whose newest assignment is with Task Force Two of TIARA (Tactical Intelligence and Related Activities) Steve is assigned to watch the suspected assassin, Marlena Maxwell. But, Marlena isn¿t exactly what she appears to be, she is so much more. The cat and mouse game of attraction between Steve and Marlena is so hot you will have to keep fanning yourself. Besides the sizzle, the high stakes world of intelligence will also keep you glued to your seat. What a fantastic start to a great writing career.

He and agent Marlena Maxwell will have to work deep undercover to find the bad guy. But neither of them realizes just how deep they'll get - into the mission and into each other. I can't rave enough about this book. If you like sexy Navy SEALS and strong, intelligent heroines, you are sure to love this novel. More, Ms. Low, More!!

    A HIT ON THE FIRST TRY!!

    If you're looking for suspense, intrigue and steam, look no further!! Gennita Low's first book, INTO DANGER, gives you all this and much more. Hot, macho Navy SEAL Steve McMillan meets sexy, mysterious possible assassin Marlena Maxwell and the sparks fly from Page One. Ms. Low has enough twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat and by the end of the book, I was begging for more. I look forward to more from this dynamic new author.

    Excellent romantic suspense.....

    Navy Seal Steve McMillan has been assigned an undercover job with the CIA¿s TIARA group. His assignment, to play chauffer to the infamous assassin Marlena Maxwell and try to deduce whom her current target is. Marlena is proficient at playing mind games, but so is Steve. As she tries figure out what agency Steve really works for, and whose side of the game he is on, the fireworks explode between these compelling characters. As the story builds, interesting secondary characters abound, each seeming to have their own agenda, playing a riveting game of cross and double cross. Gathering intelligence and eliminating the good guys from the bad are the primary focus of the plot, and the suspense never lets up. Marlena has an agenda all her own, and being the professional she is, vows to see her job to the end. But is she really what she appears to be? Steve has his work cut out for him. He¿s torn between getting his job done, while falling for the sexy Marlena. These are two of the greatest leading protagonists to hit the pages in a long time. This is an intensely sensual and suspenseful tale, which left me anticipating more to come from this great author.

    A Great New Romantic Suspense Author!!!

    Steve McMillan is a Navy SEAL assigned to work with the CIA's TIARA group. His spy team is after assassin Marlena Maxwell and Steve is going undercover to play errand boy. He doesn't count on finding himself both intrigued and attracted to the "world's most glamorous assassin." Marlena Maxwell came to Washington D.C. to do a job and she's not going to let her attraction to her newest lackey distract her. She's a professional. But despite her best intentions, she finds herself curious about Steve McMillan. He's different than all the other gofers she's had in the past. And he's much sexier. They both have secrets to keep, but as Steve and Marlena move deeper into a shadowy world of spies and counterspies, they find attraction becoming something more. Something hotter. INTO DANGER is one of the best books I've read in a long time! Steve McMillan is an honorable man torn between his ideas of right and wrong and his deepening feelings for a woman whose dossier says she's one of the bad guys. Marlena Maxwell has an agenda all her own and she's not talking about what it is. The verbal dueling between the hero and heroine is both humorous and sexy. The hero is as hot as they come and does he ever know how to play kissing games! I was lucky enough to get my hands on an Advanced Reading Copy of INTO DANGER and after reading this book, I have a brand new author to add to my must-buy list! Gennita Low delivers everything. Great dialogue, a complex story, a hero and heroine who sizzle when they're together, and a wonderful romance.

    Sizzle Sizzle...Too hot to put down

    I am a man in the Denver area and must admit I do not normally read romance novels. I enjoy books with suspense and International intelligence plots. I was pleasantly surprised by this authors ability to detail intelligence gathering techniques and sprinkle it throughout the book. The characters were intriquing and and the love scenes exotic. If you like extreme suspense you will enjoy this book. If you enjoy romance and suspense you will read this book cover to cover and wish for more. Bravo, Bravo. Although my name is Steve I now only answer to the name Ste-vo

    very, very interesting

    Well, I must say, this is one of the best books I have read all year long, and I have read MANY, MANY books! I love that the main characters were pretty equal and love the banter between them. I like that the male character was ALL male to the end and wasn't a pushover.

    Looking forward to reading about T and Alex in a story to come.
    I do like the military and Intel aspect of the book, although the story seemed more of a romance than mystery.

    The only part I did NOT like was what the main characters were doing down in the boat while there were dead bodies up above. That part seemed pretty lame. Wouldn't normal people get OFF the boat where dead people were first to do their naughty??? haha

    Couldn't get through it

    I thought this book was all simmering sexual tension. It came highly recommented. But, all the 2 main characters did was try and 'best' each other. They never really talked or connected. I gave up half way through.

    I enjoyed it BUT....

    I enjoyed this but for the most part except when the author always had to have Stash rescue Lena, even though she was supposed to be this tough professional. Stash was always taking control and bragged about having to rescue her repeatedly and told her she couldn't do any missions without him. I just found it irritating that once she met him and had sex he became possessive and she couldn't function without him. She apparently liked being dominated but then don't make her out to be a superagent who meets a man and 3 days later can't bear to live if anything happened to him. Too vulnerable. I love sexy scenes in novels but it was too hard to figure out what the hell was going on with pearls. I found the sex scenes not sexy and I just skimmed them. I like Iris Johansen, Elizabeth Lowell and Cherry Adair their lead characters don't irritate me. I would like to read a story about Tess but with Hawk and not Alex.

    OH MY GOSH

    This is the best book I've read all year. True romantic suspense, you know how some books give you too much of one and not enough of the other, well not this book. You will be in love with Stash & rooting for Marlena, it holds you to the very last page. Like me, I guarantee you'll be itching for a sequel! This is definitely one of those books you'll tell your girlfriend about, but not loan it to her, LOL.

    I won an ARC!

    What can I say but M is for Marvelous. I absolutely loved this book. First we have Steve aka Stash who is a SEAL operative working in an intel sector known as TIARA and we have Marlena Maxwell an assassin. When the two meet, the sparks fly and the story begins. These two are incredibly strong characters that you will want to see over and over again. The secondary characters are just as exciting as Stash and Marlena and I, for one, am looking forward to seeing future books with them in it!
