Lieutenant Anna Shale had taken on enough dangerous assignments to know how to play the game—and win. But when she was asked to investigate her own criminal cousin, Anna's ability to remain impartial was put to the test. And when she was confronted by her cousin's mysterious right-hand man, Anna felt trouble brewing both in her mission and her heart....

Delta Force Major Tom Wild had enough to worry about as he worked undercover to bring down the man who had destroyed his friend's life. Dwelling on Anna's betrayal wouldn't get him the answers he needed—until he learned the truth behind Anna Shale and realized she had the power to rock his well-ordered life to the core.

About the Author

As a child, Candace believed imagination was everything and growing up as the daughter of a librarian and a sailor in locales as diverse as Germany and the Philippines, she had more than enough fodder to feed that imagination. As a teenager, Candace was also certain everyone had a couple extra people running around inside their heads. It was only when her father warned her about people who heard voices - and where they eventually ended up - that she realized this wasn't the case. Candace never had the heart to confess to her father that not only did those people talk to her, they led full-scale lives. Unfortunately, with the publication of her first book, For His Eyes Only, dear ol' dad found out anyway. As an adult, Candace learned to blend action with her imagination. After a brief stint in the US Army (long enough to survive basic training), Candace accepted a branch transfer and enrolled in the US Navy's Reserve Officer Training Corps (NROTC). Following her commissioning as an Ensign in the Navy and graduation from Surface Warfare Officer's school, she finally followed her father to sea. Tasked with securing the USS Samuel Gompers' damage control, she spent her days fighting fires, plugging leaks, and cleaning up toxic gases aboard the naval warship. In fact it was during one particular watch as the Gompers' Officer of the Deck, that Candace noticed a nuclear transport container and began to imagine all sorts of intriguing scenarios. It wasn't until five years later, after she'd learned to channel her excess energy and love of romance into writing, that she turned that fateful night's fictitious fruit into a book. Though the Navy might not appreciate the turns her mind took along the way, she hopes you'll enjoy the results. Although her military days are now firmly behind her, Candace continues to draw on those experiences and her overactive imagination to pen tales of danger and intrigue on the high seas and off. The rest of her time is spent happily married to her own dashing hero, a former Army Combat Engineer with dimples to-die-for. The two currently reside in Massachusetts, happily raising three future heroes and one adorable heroine - who won't be allowed to date until she's at least 40! Candace loves hearing from readers.

US Army Delta Force Captain Tom Wild goes undercover to obtain information of the deadly deed Panamanian terrorist Luis Ortiz has planned. Tom makes himself available for hire as an explosives expert making him a valuable asset to Ortiz. Tom also seeks revenge for the death of his friend, and partner, whom was murdered by Ortiz. Tom blames the death on Ortiz's trusted cousin, Anna Shale, a former US Navy lieutenant. Tom does not trust Anna whom is suspected of passing military secrets to her cousin. Tom holds them responsible for Manuel's untimely death and will not stop until his death is avenged, even if he has to seduce the lovely Anna Shale to do it. A DANGEROUS ENGAGEMENT is the second book in the Sister In Arms military series. This story was just as intense and explosive as the first book, holding nothing back. Candace Irvin puts a lot into romantic suspense, strong characters, real-to-life drama, and explosive military action, keeping a reader on the edge of their seat. The romance in A DANGEROUS ENGAGEMENTbetween Tom and Anna is hard earned but satisfying. The hero and heroine, strong and determined that they are, deserved their happy ending. This was a raw, intense story but very good which I enjoyed a great deal. And Irvin has set up the third book (IRRESISTIBLE FORCES, Jan '04) quite nicely...I look forward to reading it!!

Readers are going to be thrilled with the edge of your seat suspense, and hot sexual tension between Anna Ortiz Shale and Tom ¿Wildman¿ Wild as they are in the middle of a mission to bring down bad guy Luis Ortiz, a man who is crazy and deep in drugs and gun running. Anna is in disgrace with the Navy and fled to Panama to live with her cousin Luis. She is really undercover and living on the edge as she is gathering information against Luis for the government. Tom Wild is also working undercover and is hired by Luis to be his new demolition man after the man before him was killed when his cover was blown. Luis wants Anna to keep Tom in line by being his lover. A DANGEROUS ENGAGEMENT is a one sitting read filled with so many twists and turns you don¿t want to put it down for fear you will miss something. It is tight and edgy and the sexual tension is enough to make you feel like blowing up. Tom and Anna are terrific. Ms. Irvin has really created some realistic characters you can dig your teeth into. This book is about trust, and by damn if you know who to trust in this book that takes you up the ladder and back down with a whoosh when it comes to knowing whom the good guys are from the baddies. You won¿t don¿t want to miss this book, or any in the series. It is top-notch entertainment. I love this Sisters-in-Arms series featuring Samantha Hall, Anna Shale, and Meg Gallagher, who formed a military sorority when they attended the University of Texas. Eve Paris and Carrie Bishop round out the sorority. These gals are tough and fast thinking go-getters when it comes to action and getting things done. The men paired with them are to die for. I can hardly wait to read Samantha Hall¿s story IRRESISTIBLE FORCES in January 2004 from Silhouette Intimate Moments. Candice Irvin gives you ¿must-read¿ stories time after time!
