**For fans of the SCVC Taskforce series! What have Cooper and Celina been up to? Find out in this short story that finds the couple in the middle of murder, mystery, and some secrets that could just kill.

Cooper Harris, head of the SCVC Taskforce and nicknamed The Beast, isn't afraid of anything...except that the woman who rocks his world may be about to dump him. Celina is acting distant and secretive while an engagement ring burns a hole in Cooper's pocket. Whisking her away for a romantic weekend at a Northern California vineyard, he hopes to reignite the spark between them and get up the nerve to finally ask her to marry him.

Feisty crime scene photographer Celina Davenport hates keeping secrets. The baby growing inside her is cause for celebration, but Cooper has a son from a previous marriage and claims he doesn't want more children because of his dangerous job. Celina understands what makes The Beast tick, and she also knows he'll be a great dad to their child. She only needs the perfect moment to break the news.

Before either can come clean, Cooper and Celina stumble upon human bones and realize the beautiful vineyard hides a dark and haunting past filled with love, betrayal and murder. Can they unravel the mystery buried in the Northern California hills and bring a killer to justice? Or will the secrets they're keeping from each other put them in deeper danger than they could ever imagine?

4.5 Stars We met Celina and Cooper in Deadly Pursuit. They're taking a vacation and it doesn't go as planned. They're both keeping things from each other that throws off suspicious vibes. What was supposed to be a relaxing vacation becomes deadly when the two find evidence in a long ago cold case. This one kept me on the edge of my seat surrounding the cold case. Then seeing Cooper and Celina re-establish why they fell in love just adds to the book. I really enjoyed this novella in SCVC series.

The weekend everything was supposed to go right was the weekend everything went wrong. Cooper (leader of DEA task force) and his girlfriend Celina (forensic photographer) head out of town for a romantic weekend. Both have a burning secret to tell the other. His is a tiny diamond ring in his pocket. Hers is the tiny baby in her belly. But when a body shows up close to the hotel they are staying at, everything takes a back seat. Great short story. Loved how you could relate to the characters. Part of a series but stand alone novel. Totally worth the read!

Cooper Harris may be a DEA Special Agent known for his fierce and fearless reputation but he's completely undone by the thought of proposing marriage to Celina. He and Celina Davenport have been together for a long time. She's a strong take-charge woman who works as an FBI forensic photographer. He wants everything to be perfect for his proposal which is why he's taking her away for a romantic weekend, but sometimes the best laid plans go awry. Who knew they would find a body? Cooper and Celina can't turn their back on this case. After all they found the body. This story is filled with passion and suspense. The interaction between these two is both protective and passionate. They are a dynamite couple. The monastery/vineyard is beautiful and deadly. I enjoyed seeing familiar characters from the SCVC Taskforce series in Deadly Affair. This story has it all. It left me feeling satisfied. I received a copy in exchange for an honest and unscripted review.

This is a great book; this is the fifth book in the SCVC Taskforce series written by Misty Evans and Amy Manemann. Cooper Harris is the head of the SCVC Taskforce and isn’t afraid of anything except he thinks that the woman he loves is about ready to dump him. Celina Davenport is a feisty crime scene photographer, she hates keeping secrets especially from Cooper. However, the baby growing inside her is cause for celebration, but Cooper has a son from a previous marriage and claims he doesn’t want more children because of his dangerous job. In order for them to further their relationship they must come clean with each other. This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. This book will keep you reading long into the night. If you are looking for a great book, then you need to read this book. I am looking forward to reading the next book by this great author. A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

This was the first book in this series I read. It was an easy read and hard to put down. It definitely kept me wanting to read more. From the story plot to the characters, Deadly Affair was an excellent read. As Cooper and Celina were taking you one way, all of a sudden things would go a different way. Such as in life. They kept me on my toes, not knowing what was going to happen and hoping that it would end as a love story... The story flowed smoothly from one point to the next. Even when things would take a change there was no disappointment as the next adventure was as enticing as the one before! Anxious to read more of the series! ❤️

An enjoyable action and romance packed quick read. A big touch guy who deals with crazy stuff every day can be nervous. All it takes is the right woman. Now to get that perfect moment they both need to reveal what they want to tell each other. But it's not that simple. I haven'e read the other books in this series but after reading this one I sure want to!

Absolutely loved this book! This book has some twists and turns, suspense, and some heat. I love how Cooper "Beast" is described and how he is written in this book. You have to love a story with a strong male lead that has that softer side and is secure enough in his manhood to step aside and allow the strong female in his life to take control once in a while. Cooper is a strong male lead with a soft heart and massive love for Celina. The two of them just need a little time away after a hard case so Cooper has booked them a romantic weekend at a vineyard and hotel run by Monks. Cooper has some special plans for the weekend and he hopes Celina is on board with those plans. Celina can not wait to relax and unwind with Cooper over the weekend. She is in need of time alone with him since she has something special she wants to spring on him, she just hopes he doesn't run for the hills. The last thing that either Cooper or Celina had in their plans was to discover the remains of someone while out in the woods for a little romantic R &R. This story takes right of and the pace doesn't slow down. It is a great short story and one I would recommend to anyone that loves suspense, action, a little heat and a good steady pace.

Deadly Affair, SCVC Taskforce Series Book 5, by Misty Evans and Amy Manemann is a great read. It’s a continuation of FBI agent Celina Davenport and DEA agent Cooper Harris’ story from Deadly Pursuit, SCVC Book 1. These two authors make the best team and just keep turning out the hits. This is the perfect continuation of the series and the story of Celina and Cooper, and stays true to both characters, especially in their witty banter. Just like the other books in the series, this one is full of action, suspense, and plenty of romance. The plot is original and interesting. The story flows well and as a novella the length is just right, not too drawn out, the plot resolved in a timely manner, but not rushed. The authors really know how to set a scene with descriptions to draw the reader in without being too wordy, as I felt as if I was at the abbey enjoying the beautiful sights. Celina is a great heroine and I like her feisty and independent nature. Cooper makes an awesome hero, sexy as sin, devoted to his job, but just as devoted to his woman. It was great to see the Beast, Cooper, who thinks nothing of taking down drug cartel leaders, sweating bullets over his vacation plans, and sweet to see how protective he is of Celina. I really enjoyed how these two danced around revealing their secrets while solving a mystery. Though this story is linked to the series, it can be read as a standalone. Several characters from the other books do make appearances, but there is enough back story that a reader new to the series will catch up fast and not feel lost. But if you haven’t read Deadly Pursuit, book 1, it is worth getting and learning how these two great characters come together and following along on their wild ride. All in all, I really enjoyed Deadly Affair and highly recommend it. It’s a must read for romantic suspense fans and a great installment to the series. I can’t wait until the release of Deadly Attraction, the next book in the SCVC Taskforce Series, coming in November. I received an ARC of this title for an honest review.

This story had so much excitement and mystery that I couldn't put it down. I loved Cooper and Celina in Deadly Pursuit and I couldn't wait to see them again in this novella. Misty Evans and Amy Manemann did not disappoint. There was murder, intrigue, and passion in a monastery/vineyard. It was an awesome setting for a great story! It was a short read, but it packed the punch of a full-length novel. Cooper and Celina always seem to stumble upon trouble, even while on vacation. However, their own secrets helped make this book even better. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

We met Cooper Harris and Celina Davenport in Deadly Pursuit (A SCVC Taskforce Romantic Suspense Book 1) and if you haven’t read that you should but it isn’t necessary to have read it to enjoy this. Cooper and Celina have been through hell and now they are taking a chance on happiness together. Cooper is trying to find the perfect moment to propose and Celina is trying to find the perfect time to let Cooper know she is carrying his child. A weekend getaway seems like the perfect solution except for the body exposed in the vineyard leading to a 20 year old cold case. Told with love for the characters and humor at the situation and with all due respect to the case this is a fantastic addition to the series.
Linda__ More than 1 year ago
Loved this novella! It's a quick read, but packs a punch. Two of our favorite members of the SCVC escape for a romantic weekend. Each has an agenda of their own that quickly becomes lost when a body is discovered where they are staying. If you enjoy fast paced romantic suspense, you will love this book.

Deadly Affair by Misty Evans and Amy Manemann is a mystery mixed with a hot romance and a love that is both passionate, strong and supportive. Celina and Cooper are a perfect couple both in the field and personally. They both have their secrets as they takeoff for the weekend but a mystery will put the secrets on the back burner until they can help solve a cold case. The story is smoothly paced, the mystery intriguing and the romance hot. Don't miss this new addition to the SCVC Taskforce series.
