In Manhattan Tripp Shaughnessey of the Smithson Group is bored and a bit envious that his friend and fellow member of the elite five, Christian Bane, has had success with covert operations against Spectra (see THE BANE AFFAIR ¿ I will). Perhaps the only thing he is enjoying at the moment is flirting with Glory Brighton, owner of a sandwich shop.................. While Tripp obtains a delicious kiss from the restaurateur, Danh Vuong leads other thugs on a raid of the sandwich shop. His boss believes that Glory has something he needs in his war with Spectra. The police arrive before Danh and associates finish their assault. They take hostages, but had not reckoned that Tripp, an alleged engineer, turns into a super operative, which is what he is for the mysterious Smithson Group. Tripp vows no one will harm Glory, the woman he loves...................... THE SHAUNESSEY ACCORD is a humorous erotic romantic suspense novel that grips readers whether the lead couple are going at it or battling bad guys. Somewhat tongue in cheek (literally and figuratively), Tripp is a delightfully dangerous man including to his enemies and to his beloved; his kisses stir the all-American wisecracking heroine. Fans of the Die Hard movies will shout Brava to Alison Kent for a fabulous Smithson tale and look forward to the next novel in the series........................... Harriet Klausner

I enjoyed 'The Bane Affair' and thought the second in this series would be just as good. The story line was boring. I didn't enjoy this one at all. It made me not want to continue reading the series.

Alison Kent brings another hot and exciting story in The Shaughnessey Accord. SG-5 Agent Tripp Shaughnessey is a man all women love and the bad guys fear. He has had the hots for sandwich shop owner Glory Brighton for months now. He comes across her in her storeroom and makes his move. Glory Brighton hasn¿t had the best of luck with men. She has lusted after the funny and sexy engineer from the offices above her store. Just as Glory decides to tempt Tripp all hell breaks out in her store. Tripp, Glory finds out is more then what he appears to be on the surface. She must put her trust in him to survive. Once they believe the danger is over, Glory and Tripp fulfill their desires. Glory and Tripp are a perfect match of wit and chemistry. Looking forward to the next book in this steamy series.

I was a bit shocked and confused when I picked up the latest book - The Sahughnessey Accord - it's so short! Not at all what I expected, but still a good story. The Bane Affair was incredible and I guess I just expected the same.

Tripp Shaughnessey is more than a bit bored at the moment. One of his fellow operatives, Christian Bane, has taken a tough crime syndicate, Spectra IT, down a peg or two. Unfortunately, there are a lot more bad guys at Spectra, and Tripp is waiting for the Spectra agent he¿s been assigned to make his move. For reasons unknown to Tripp and his team, the dirty agent has made Brighton¿s Spud and Suds Sandwich Shop the basis of his operation - a place recently Tripp¿s favorite - or more importantly, the shop owner, Glory Brighton.

Glory doesn¿t know it yet, but Tripp¿s made his claim - or will soon enough. They¿ve been flirting like teenagers, but Tripp is ready for far more. Boredom, plus the need for more quality time with Glory, has Tripp more than a bit edgy.

Things are about to get hot and heavy - but not as Tripp would like. Glory has no idea that her shop is a target, and that her life is soon to be in imminent danger.

Glory¿s prior relationships have left her with a lot of emotional baggage. That, along with Tripp¿s horrific past before he was rescued and recruited by Hank Smithson, makes for a delicate relationship. Factor in the present danger, and things don't look too good at all - except when Glory stares into the beautiful eyes of Tripp Shaughnessey. He may be a boring engineer - or so she thinks - but the sizzle of attraction she feels around him is nearly enough to spark a flame.

Just as Tripp and Glory really begin to get to know each other, her business is invaded by six masked men. Tripp must act quickly, as he could never live with himself if something happened to Glory. Meanwhile, Glory is in for a major surprise. Tripp now resembles a stark combination of MacGyver and Rambo more than any engineer she¿s ever met. Who is Tripp really? Where does the raw power that flows so easily from him emanate from? Is Tripp another bad guy? Glory¿s parents have not forgiven her for two of her previous relationships with dangerous men. Oh no, Tripp just cannot be another man that will ruin any chances of a happy future for her.

The police have been notified, and a standoff ensues. Yet, their relationship intensifies while they are in grave danger. The powerful emotions Ms. Kent writes in this story are just as alluring as the danger itself. This story is rather brief - only about 150 pages - but it packs a powerful wallop. Tripp makes sure of two things in this engrossing story: Glory¿s safety and revealing the powerful emotions he has for her that he can no longer hide. There is also amazingly intense passion that Tripp and Glory share. All these elements blend together to make Episode Two ¿ THE SHAUGHNESSEY ACCORD a truly terrific read that you will most certainly want to devour in one sitting.

I¿ve got Episodes Three and Four - and am more than anxious to read them as soon as possible. Alison Kent wields her pen wonderfully - no matter what she writes, and this series proves her stellar talent yet again.

The Shaughnessey Accord is a great continuation of the Smithson Group series by Alison Kent. Its characters are funny, charming, sweet and extremely likable, whether involved in their erotic first kiss or the fear of facing a determined gunman. I highly recommend this book, as well as this entire series, and personally think they would be best read in order, although not necessary.

Alison Kent does it again! In the second installment of the Smithson Group series, Kent introduces two very independent, intelligent and strong characters. After weeks of flirting, Glory Brighton, a smart and sassy all American girl, and Tripp Shaughnessey, sexy spy extrodinaire, are thrown together when they are held hostage in a deli. The storyline is filled with lots of intrigue, excitement and passion! If you liked The Bane Affair, you will definitely love The Shaughnessey Accord. This one will not disappoint!
