A lone-wolf warrior and the single dad she doesn't dare pursue.

Elliot Smith has trained hard to live alone and work alone, even when it comes to her job as a security specialist for JCL Security. No relationships, no ties, except the one to the man who kidnapped and murdered her mother. She'll do anything to kill Martin Diako, the untouchable South African pirate king. When Deacon Walsh walks into her office, she finally sees a chance to do just that.

Deacon went from soldier to mercenary warrior to stay-at-home dad, and now his past is back to haunt him. Martin Diako, the father of the terrorist Deacon killed two years ago, is coming for revenge, and he has his sight set on Deacon's daughter. An heir for an heir. Deacon will do anything to protect her, even if it means asking for help. But the security team he's hired comes with an added complication: the only woman to interest him since his wife died.

Deacon always leads his team, and Elliot protects hers. They might have one chance at their enemy--if they can work together. Will their hunger for each other pull them together, or push them apart?

When she is put on a detail where she has to guard a little girl, it gives her the opportunity to do just that. But will the sparks that are flying between her and Deacon be too lethal to overcome?

Wow! Amazing, multi-layered action romance! Elliot has trained her whole life for one mission. When Elliot is assigned to protect Deacon's daughter, she's got to keep her connection to the man threatening Deacon secret in order to protect those she cares about. Unfortunately, Deacon sees any deception as a betrayal. This story just sucked me in right from the start. Elliot is a strong but sympathetic character, a woman of many surprises who survived a truly horrific childhood. Deacon is an alpha leader, a man who lives by the rules that keep his team safe. He falls hard for Elliot, but doesn't know what to make of the news when he finds out the truth she's been hiding. These characters are vividly drawn, compelling in their honest emotional connection and ultimately triumphant in their war against their common enemy. Everything I've read by this author is stunningly captivating, and this book is one of her best. It was a non-stop read for me and I highly recommend it. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

Elliot is a highly trained female fighter and lethal security specialist with many secrets. Deacon is a former specwar mercenary who needs assistance in protecting his innocent daughter from an evil warlord wantinng vengance. The two work with the rest of their teams to neutralize the bad guys. My first read by this author. Excellent storyline with tons of action and mystery. I am heading back to read the other books in this high action series.

Deceive Me by Ella Sheridan is the very definition of a page-turner! Deacon and Elliot are nothing short of amazing in this fast-paced novel and their chemistry is just the tip of the iceberg. When Deacon and Elliot first meet, it’s explosive, to say the least! I was so hyped after their meeting, that I finished the book in one sitting. It’s one of those books that you just have to finish after you start, otherwise you will be thinking about it all day, wondering what happens throughout the story. Deacon needs Elliot to protect his daughter, but Elliot is hiding a secret, one that could throw his whole world off. Will Elliot’s secret be the end to them all? Oh man! This well-written, suspenseful story will knock you off your feet and make you want to re-read it all over again! A must-read for sure!
