A blind date with a sexy double agent on a covert mission…what could possibly go wrong?

Barb Williams is on the blind date from hell. She realizes she's being used as a decoy, but before she can ditch her sexy date, the embassy party they are attending is crashed by terrorists.

Ken Park is on a very personal covert mission to uncover the intel that will exonerate his father, but his exotic, sensual, distracting date is messing with his focus.

When masked mercenaries take over the embassy party, can Barb and Ken overcome their trust issues and band together to save the day?

Dangerous Game is the fourth installment in the Black Cipher Files series. This is a shorter work than the original trilogy (about half the length of Blowback, Betrayals, and Burned)

The Black Cipher Files is a fast-paced, edgy romance and espionage series that features hot, alpha heroes and kick-ass heroines, working to uncover long-buried secrets from the past so they can save their future.

About the Author

USA Today Bestselling Author Lisa Hughey has been writing romance since the fourth grade, which was also about the time she began her love affair with spies. Harriet and Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys later gave way to James Bond and Lara Croft and Jason Bourne. Exploring the complex nature of a profession that requires subterfuge and lies fascinates her. She loves combining her two passions into fiction. As evidenced by her Black Cipher Files series.

Taking a break from romantic suspense, Lisa entered the paranormal world of the Angelic Realm. The Seven deals with forbidden relationships between humans and Archangels. At its heart, Rafe is a novel about the dynamic of family relationships. As this series evolves, the core story continues to be about love triumphing in the face of opposition and heartache. (The really hot Archangels don't hurt.)

And recently she's been immersed in the Stone Family novellas, stories about a blended family of brothers and a sister who have a lot more in common than they realize. But of course she couldn't just write about family and romance. There are complex plots, bad guys, and suspense too.

Lisa loves to hear from readers and has various places you can connect with her, although, shh, Twitter is her favorite.

Another winner in the Black Cipher Series! If you enjoy fast paced romantic suspense, you will love this book! It's so good that I read it in a single sitting - I just couldn't put it down. Barbis set up on a blind date with Ken, a type of super spy. Before long, their location is under attack and Ken explodes into super spy mode. Despite being rom sus, the author allowed bits of humor to shine through, I mean, really, what could be better then a Barbie and Ken love story set to bombs and bullets? Fans of the genre will love this book. While it is part of a series, it is a stand alone novella. I normally avoid novellas unless it's part of a series I love, please don't make that mistake with this book - it is well worth your time.

What a heck of a first date being a blind date even makes it worse. Barb is much more of a women than I would have been she has guts, smart, she is a take the bull by the horn women, she sure doesn’t let any grass grow under her feet when she makes up her mind. When Barb first looks at Ken she isn’t so sure he just isn’t her normal kind of guy. Before the evening is through she tells herself she will be killing Jamie or kick her tail along with many other promises. It isn’t long into the date that she feels Ken isn’t acting right. It isn’t long before they find themselves under attack and go into hiding. This is not the first time tonight that Barb wonders if there is more to Ken than meets the eye. Ken thought this would be an easy night fast in fast out with what he was looking for. What he finds is Barb isn’t what he expected and the attraction between them is making it hard to keep his mind on his mission. He thought he would get some simple minded lady who would stay out of his way. What he got was a woman who saw too much and asked too many question. He is starting to think maybe she is with the terrorists and trying to bring him down. This is a very fast pace read with all happen in more or less one day. You would be surprised what can happen in a day when you are a spy and on a mission. Not all thing are as they seem nor are the people. You will have to look closely if you want to find the clues to who, what, why and where. The author sure isn’t giving much away as she twists the read into a thrilling adventure. This author starts off this thrilling read with a bang and keeps the same pace throughout. You are pretty well hooked from the first page until the end. There is some powerful attraction when these two first meet as these two hit head on dancing around it. Neither really likes the other but when push comes to shove they stand up and make a wonderful team. There are times my mouth fell open or times when I had to laugh and still times when I sat on the edge holding on to find out how things would go. This was really a thrilling read which make your heart beat a little faster. OH MY the passionate nights will have you a little heated yourself. I thought this had a wonderful plot and well written. I loved the characters Barbie and Ken made a find match lol. There is just enough push and shove to make this a very entertaining read. I have never read anything by this author and can’t wait to read more. If you are looking for a fast pace thrilling read with some romance I hope you give this a read.
