Dangerous Deception by Beverly Barton

For Lausanne Raney, romance meant nothing but trouble. Once it cost her her freedom and her baby girl. Now she's got a respectable life…but desperately needs money to find her child. When she accepts an unusual offer from her wealthy employer's daughter, she finds herself under deadly suspicion—and the unwanted protection of security agent Domingo Shea. Bad enough the courageously honest ex-Navy SEAL doesn't completely trust Lausanne any more than she does him. But worse still, the instant electric attraction between them is impossible to resist. And the deeper their investigation goes, the more Lausanne struggles to convince Dom to leave her—for both their sakes. But with a ruthless killer lying in wait, there will soon be no safe place for her or Dom to hide….

Former SEAL Dom Shea is assigned the case with the evidence pointing towards a homicide as many people wanted the spoiled rich girl dead. He soon suspects Bedell, Inc employee Lausanne because she got involved with the missing heiress just before the wealthy woman vanished. However, to his chagrin he also is attracted to Lausanne and her to him though neither trusts the other for differing reasons he because she may be a kidnapper-murderer and he because he is a male hunk. --- DANGEROUS DECEPTION is an interesting romantic suspense thriller starring a woman whose luck in men has been all bad until she meets the SEAL and a hunk who does not know whether to kiss her or have her arrested. The story line focuses on their relationship as they seek the missing Audrey. Though Lausanne¿s constant lament can turn too whining, no one will have a dry eye with the final confrontation. --- Harriet Klausner

The story line was the best thing about the book. I thought some beginning author had written it and that it should have been a 99 cent special. Bunny
