Tucker Chase. FBI agent and tough-as-they-come ex-Navy SEAL, Tucker's take-all-comers attitude attracts trouble on the job and off, but he still gets the hard jobs done. He makes no bones about being the baddest ass on the planet—until his ex-wife runs off to Vietnam with his only son, Deuce. Until the woman he won't admit to loving leaves on some humanitarian mission to who knows where.
Until he has to ask for help…
Melissa McCormack. Widow to one of America's finest USMC war heroes, Melissa is everything Tucker isn't. Sophisticated. Wealthy. Respected. Don't forget celibate since Brady, the first love of her life, passed away. She wants Tucker as much as he wants her, but she didn't want to end up like that elite rifle he toted while he was a SEAL, the one he could field strip in his sleep without thought or care. The one he slung over his shoulder with all of his other weapons.
The one he took for granted…

I love reading Melissa and Tucker's
King of Hearts will win your heart! Irish has done it again with her first book of the Deuces Wild series. Tucker Chase is a cocky, can do no wrong FBI agent and former Navy Seal. The only thing he loves more than himself is his son. Melissa McCormack isn't ready for his advances and leaves on a humanitarian mission. In a race against time to rescue both his son, and the woman he can't live without, Tucker discovers hIs heart and will do anything to save them both.
Irish Winters never disappoints and this one certainly doesn't. What a fun ride. I love a strong hero. Make him a little, or in this case, a lot different and you have the start of something. The start of this series in a winner. Loved seeing the old friends of the previous series. I always enjoy checking in. The action, the characters, strong, emotional, and seeing Tucker give into his feelings for Melissa and Duece was amazing. He hasn't had an easy life. He's worked hard for our country at the cost of much. Can he finally have a chance at a personal life? Melissa is classy. Unlike Tucker. She is trying to overcome the loss of her husband. Tucker respects her feelings and the man. But he is gone and she is alive. She wants him if he can just figure out what she wants from him. She wants to be his everything not just his convenience. Can he really give enough? When Tucker's son comes in the picture they can agree they both want what is best for him. The action is over the top which is just what you'd expect from Tucker. I absolutely love the interaction with Strong and Stewart. The thought process that leads to the set-up for the series is wonderful. I'll let you read to find out how these three powerful men "bargain". I can't wait for more. A strong recommend from me.
