An assassin with a baby? Inconceivable...

The second stand-alone romantic suspense in the Triggerman Inc. series featuring sexy assassins, a baby, and a devious bad guy from New York Times bestseller Marie Harte.

Deacon’s life could be better. Deacon—the Shadow—kills people for a living. He’s a choosy assassin, and he makes no bones about his life choices. But a baby… That’s something he knows he’d never conceive of—pun intended.

While he’s looking into this baby situation, snarky ex-supermodel Solene Hansen is in trouble. Deacon’s sticking to her 24/7. Before long, he's learning that there's a lot more to Solene than sharp words and a gorgeous face. But his enemies are close, and they've taken note of his interest..

It'll take all his talent to keep Solene safe, learn who wants him dead and what the baby has to do with any of it, and figure out how to get Solene to realize that while he might not be a safe bet, he'll be a sure one.

This is going to short be and sweet because I don’t want to give too much aware. For me, this book needs to be experienced because of what goes on in the story. And how the author leaves the ending. There is massive intrigue and I still can’t figure out how it is going to end. I have to say that I thought this book was better than CONTRACT SIGNED. SECRETS UNSEALED really was so freaking good! I liked the characters, but for me it was the storyline that kept me entertained. So many twists and plots within plots. This is one time that I am completely stumped with who is the real mastermind. And the questions … I have so many questions and no answers!!!! Who is one of the characters? I think I know, but I can’t be absolutely sure. GRRRR!!!!! Now I need to wait for the book to get the answers. Well played Marie Harte, very well played. I am vested in the story now and NEED to know what is going to happen.

These guys are back and let me tell you that I love them and I feel like I am in danger with them. This is Deacon's book (the shadow) and I hope you started with the first book, you wont be lost but you will feel and get the story more. So we know that a baby showed up at these guys doorstep and they each thought it could not have been them. This time is focused on Deacon and Solene the used to be supermodel, and someone knows that she is Deacons interest and now she is in danger so Deacon is stepping up to protect her, and while together they fall in love..But we have betrayal, problems and whole lot of sexy time..Loved reading about previous characters and secondary characters, Can't wait til the next one...Enjoy! Rcvd an ARC at no cost to author..Voluntarily reviewed with my own thoughts and opinions.

This is a delicious romantic suspense story that is not to be missed. It's ultimate conclusion will come in the next book but we have a VERY satisfying HEA in this story. Deacon "Shadow" Shaw is an assassin for "the company" who apparently is sanctioned by the US government. It recruits orphans on the streets that show promise. Deacon is one of these. His mother was a drug addict and he had to learn to fend for himself very early in order to eat and say safe. Currently he and 2 other agents are trying to solve the puzzle of who is the parents of a foundling left on Noel "Ice" Cavanaugh's doorstep. The baby was left with a note referencing an op in Mexico that Ice, Shadow and "Destroyer" Hammer were involved in. They've come together to find answers and protect those they care about as it seems someone wants them dead. Solene Hansen is the best friend of Noel's neighbor Addy. She's a retired supermodel with a snarky attitude and a talent for turning a failing business into a success. She came from parents who used her as a money maker with little love for their daughter. Solene is guarded because everyone wants something from her; money, prestige, advancement, whatever. Now someone is targeting her because of Addy. Addy and Noel have become a pair. Deacon is a self appointed bodyguard to Solene while the guys try to figure out who's behind trying to kill them and who the baby is. The baby had 2 clues on it, the note about Mexico and a locket with the name "Angel" and the code X6TFL. We finally, thanks to Hammer understand the code from his training days. It seems he and Angel were classmates. The code is 2 parts: X6 = Destruction & Termination and TFL = Too F*cking Lame in reference to classes they hated. He hasn't seen Angel since she "graduated" and hasn't for some reason shared the code meaning with the other 2 guys. No one knows where Angel disappeared to. To confuse matters the contractor Angel isn't the only "angel" out there. Seems another contractor gone rogue Romero Burleigh has his own set of angels, like Charlie's Angels from TV. It was such a joy watching Deacon and Solene's chemistry burn up the sheets. They both fought this so hard but living in each other's pockets makes it impossible. Both of their hearts are firmly shielded from the past injuries. But they are kindred souls and can't seem to resist each other. Danger has a way of making people face what's truly in their hearts. At the conclusion of this story we are one step deeper into the mystery of who's the traitor in "the company" and who the Puppet Master is, and a HEA for Decon & Solene. I was given a copy of this story for my honest and voluntary review.

SECRETS UNSEALED is the second instalment in Marie Harte’s contemporary, adult TRIGGERMAN INC romantic suspense series focusing on a group of assassins and contractors who form a secret organization known as the Business. This is contractor Deacon ‘Shadow’ Shaw, and day-care worker/ ex-supermodel Solene Hansen’s story line. SECRETS UNSEALED can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous instalment is revealed where necessary but I recommend reading the series in order for back story and cohesion. Told from several third person perspectives including Deacon and Solene SECRETS UNSEALED continues to focus on the search for the truth. Someone is targeting the group of contractors who recently took down the head of a Mexican cartel. An abandoned baby wearing a locket, and several attempts against their lives finds contractors/assassins Deacon, Noel and Hammer battling an unknown enemy. When the most recent attacks focus on day care worker Solene Hansen, Deacon makes it his mission to become guardian and protector of the woman with whom he will fall in love. What ensues is the building relationship between Solene and Deacon, and the potential fall-out when one of their own appears to have fallen to the dark side. Solene Hansen is Addy Rose’s (Contract Signed #1) best friend, and with that, her connection to the Business places our heroine in the direct line of fire. Everyone is suspect; no one is safe including the man who would die to keep Solene alive. The relationship between Solene and Deacon is one of immediate attraction but Solene’s safety is at risk with her continued friendship and involvement with Addy, and her new found mate. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense, without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. We are reintroduced to Noel ‘Ice’ Cavanaugh, and elementary school teacher Adeline ‘Addy’ Rose (Contract Signed #1), contractors Hamilton ‘Hammer’ aka ‘the Destroyer’ Aston Montgomery III, Violet Leon, and their handler, a man known only to the reader as Big Joe but a man who remains in the background giving out assignments and cleaning up when a job is done. The requisite evil has many faces. The world building continues to focus on the fall-out of an assignment that has followed Deacon, Noel and Hammer back home. Secrets and lies, hidden agendas, and the possibility of a double agent or mole keep the trio on the look-out for any potential threats and danger. SECRETS UNSEALED is a story of betrayal, double cross and revenge; friendship and love; grit and determination. The premise is spirited and inviting; the romance is sassy and seductive; the characters are energetic and real. SECRETS UNSEALED is an imaginative and edgy story.
