Jamie Richmond, reporter turned author, is doing research for her next book. Attempting to capture the realism of a police officer's duties while on patrol, she manages to tag along for a shift with a state police trooper. A few traffic stops and a high speed chase later, Jamie's ride takes an unexpected turn when she witnesses the trooper being shot.
Although it is not a fatal injury, Jamie becomes obsessed with unraveling the facts behind this violent act. While she is trying to sort out this puzzle, she becomes romantically involved with Malone, another trooper with a few mysteries of his own. Now Jamie's attention is divided between a blooming romance and solving the crime which is haunting her.
Jamie begins to question the events that took place and exactly who could be behind the shooting. It was a devious mind. But who?

Devious 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Devious was a breath of fresh air. I've been too immersed in normal romances and Devious provided a welcome change.  An engrossing romantic suspense, I couldn't put it down. The interaction between the characters was fresh and intense. Their exchanges were amusing and made Devious seem too short. Well paced action interspersed with romance and the mundane kept me reading.  Jamie cracked me up. Nothing, nothing would stop her until she had her answers. She reminded me of a terrier. Just don't get in her way, and the consequences be damned. Malone, just Malone, was a perfect foil for Jamie. Solid and always there for her, he seemed to instinctively know what to do to keep Jamie on the hook. A quiet man with a deep sense of humor, I loved his character. That he's on cop on top of that? Oh yeah! Devious will wrap itself around your mind. The intensity and bursts of humor make for a fantastic romantic and suspenseful book. The ongoing joke (read it and you'll know!) through out made me hope there would be more of Jamie and Malone to come. THEN I find out there is! So, I'm hooked and will read on!
