Jack Vaughn is sure his life is over as he tumbles down the wooded hillside onto the deserted two-lane stretch of asphalt. Years of work ended with a single gunshot. Yet, it's not over.

A good Samaritan stops to help him, despite the danger he poses to her.

Laine Wheeler knows better than to stop for strangers on the rural Montana highway near her home, but her conscience won't allow her to leave an injured man behind.

What she doesn't know is the man is an undercover ATF agent tasked with infiltrating a domestic terrorist group. His cover has been blown and helping him will put her life in danger.

Though there is an instant attraction, Jack knows that beginning a romantic relationship with Laine would be both unfair and unwise. Yet the farther they run, the harder it gets to ignore the feelings that are surging between them.

Author Leslie McKelvey's debut novel, Accidental Affair is an intense romantic suspense story that hooks the reader from the beginning and takes them on a non-stop action packed thrill ride. Written in the third person narrative and set in the small town of Evergreen Springs, Montana, this intriguing tale follows the suspenseful adventure of undercover ATF agent Jack Vaughn, who has spent the last eight years infiltrating the domestic terrorist organization known as CAG, Citizens Against Government. When Jack's cover is blown, he barely escapes with his life only to tumble down an embankment in front of Veterinarian Laine Wheeler's SUV. The dangerous game of bringing CAG to justice puts Jack and Laine's lives at stake as their adventure takes them to Denver to meet up with FBI Special Agent Ted "Bear" Bristol. Along the way sparks fly between them as danger lurks around every bend in the road. This romantic suspense story has a great mixture of intriguing adventure, drama, action, and exciting romance that grabs the readers attention and doesn't let go until the thrilling conclusion.

It's the type of book that you won't be able can't put down until you find out how the story ends! This is a wonderful debut novel for author Leslie McKelvey.

I love when a book grabs me from the very beginning. I always tend to find that it's a good sign of things to come. When you're talking about Accidental Affair by Leslie McKelvey, that statement is so true. Accidental Affair grabs you and doesn't let you go. It's thrilling and heart stopping. Saying that it will have you on the edge your seat might be saying too much for some people. But for me, it's a true statement. This was a book I couldn't stop talking about as I was reading it. Jack Vaughn, is actually Agent Jack Vaughn, an undercover ATF agent who has spent the last eight years of his life on this ONE mission, of infiltrating and bring down the domestic terrorist organization known as CAG, Citizens Against Government. Jack's cover is blown and he barely escapes with his life and all the proof he needs to stop the organization. The leader of CAG is a man named Ripley. Ripley seems to have had some type of military training. At times, he appears to be very relaxed, but one should never be fooled by his relaxed appearance. Because underneath the relaxed facade is a man full of anger who will NOT hesitate to kill. Laine Wheeler is a woman with secrets. Not secrets that could hurt or destroy someone, but secrets she must suppress in order to just carry on with her life. Laine is a Veterinarian in the small Montana town of Evergreen Springs. Her life changes for the second time when a dirty bearded biker looking man tumbles down a twenty foot embankment and lands in front of her SUV. Laine's medical background kicks in and she feels the need to help the man who she finds laying in the middle of the road in the middle of nowhere. Even as Jack tells her to grab his bag and leave him there because her life will be in danger, Laine refuses. This is the start of a cat and mouse game that will put both of their lives in danger and take them on an odyssey neither one totally expects. With his cover blown, Jack doesn't know who he can and can not trust. All he knows is that the mole has to be within The Denver Federal Building. Jack MUST get to Denver and make contact with the one man he knows he can trust, Special Agent Ted "Bear" Bristol of the FBI. If things weren't already tense and heated on the way to Denver, once Jack and Laine reach Denver, the heat intensifies. Jack and Laine's attraction for each other comes to a head and the sparks fly. A trap is set and not everyone who enters a hotel room will walk out alive. Accidental Affair is a romantic suspense. For me, generally with any type of romance book, I tend to become mesmerized by the hero, but this book is completely different. Laine is just an average woman. She has no special military training. Heck, she probably doesn't even have any self-defense training. But Laine is definitely a person you want to have your back and stand by your side. The things she does are incredible. She is calm and collected and has a deadly aim. Without a doubt, Leslie McKelvey is now one of my new favorite authors. I can't wait to read what she has next in line for us readers.

I am not a reader, and certainly not a reader of romantic fiction, but I was asked to read Accidental Affair as a favor and I was surprised at how I was at once in touch with the characters.  They were totally relatable.  I was immediately caught up in the story!  Usually, I am a technical reader.  I like facts and details, and I can tell that Ms. McKelvey has done her homework.  The detail she includes is enough to keep this tech-savvy person interested throughout the book.  Even the romance swept me up, and I wanted the best for the characters as the story unfolded.  I am now hooked on her writing and anxiously awaiting her next one.

Knowing the author personally (she is my mother), I am thrilled to see our long hours paid off. And do not worry. Plenty more will come soon. She has at least three more in the works, and a few others being published as of now. Well... going through the publishing process.
