As the chase heats up, so does the passion between them.

If there's anything zoologist Josslyn Benoit abhors more than guns, it's poachers. When an African "fact-finding" mission with a wildlife conservationist group goes horribly wrong and one of their members is shot, Josslyn and her team must flee for their lives. What's worse? Josslyn must call in a favor from her older half-sister...the First Lady of the United States. She returns to D.C. to hunt down a major importer of illegal animal products and the last thing she needs on her tail is a gun-toting, testosterone-fueled hottie who's too sexy for words and too bossy to tolerate.

After suffering an injury in the line of duty, Adam Lockett, commander of the Secret Service's elite team of snipers, is sidelined on a boring protective detail—guarding the First Lady's wild-child younger sister, who's hell-bent on ditching her detail. He's biding his time until he can return to the job he loves best, and no tree-hugging, animal saving smokey-eyed beauty is going to ruin his perfect protection record. But when Josslyn's leads heat up, it's her own skin on the line, and she's become much more than a job for Adam.

Can two opposites find happiness, or is it just a shot in the dark?

WOW! I loved, loved, loved Adam and Josslyn’s love story in Shot in the Dark by Tracy Solheim, book twos in her Men of the Secret Service series. The title is fitting since our hero, Adam, is a sniper who was recently injured while on duty. He has been assigned what he considers a boring detail, guarding the First Lady’s wild-child younger sister, who’s hell-bent on ditching her detail. Zoologist Josslyn Benoit is on a mission to stop wildlife poachers, especially in Africa. When an African “fact-finding” mission with a wildlife conservationist group goes horribly wrong, Josslyn and her team must flee for their lives; with Josslyn calling in a favor from her older half-sister, the First Lady. Joss pursues a major importer of illegal animal products while trying to lose her protective detail. The fact that Adam had saved Joss before while on a “mission” only added to the attraction between these two opposites. I loved the fun code names Adam was coming up with for Joss, besides the Dr. Doolittle assigned name. Another great aspect of this story was the behind the scenes look at the National Zoo and especially the Elephant habitat. This story not only kept me on my toes trying to figure out who was really the one behind the illegal importation, but also did an excellent job of bringing awareness to the problems it caused. I also loved learning about all the rooms and grounds of the White House. Ms. Solheim wrote a wonderful, sexy and suspenseful story that is definitely not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sexual chemistry, amusing banter, and endearing characters giving Adam and Joss a chance to discover they were really meant for each other. I highly recommend Shot in the Dark to other readers and look forward to the next book in this series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

Intrigue, tension and danger await on the pages of Shot in the Dark. Throw in some sizzling, fiery love scenes and you have a book just dying to combust in your hands (or to blow up your device.) This is a fast paced, page turner with questions of “Who Done It” in so many dangerous scenarios. It is a great blend of sexy romance and suspense.

The Tower of Testosterone and the She-Devil. I loved getting to know Josslyn and Adam and watching these two stubborn and independent people dance around their attraction while still trying to be true to themselves. Josslyn is passionate about her career and protecting endangered animals, even if it put her in precarious situations and at odds with her family. When her latest job brings her back to the US and living with her sister, the First Lady, in the White House, she gets her own Secret Service detail, led by Adam. Adam is recovering from an on-the-job injury and is assigned to “light” duty guarding Josslyn. When the last job appears to have followed Josslyn home, she and Adam have to work together to figure out who is behind it. With a mix of humor, a bit of suspense, and sizzling attraction, Tracy Solheim has created a well-written story with fun characters and a story line that is both interesting and informative. Put aside a few hours for this one, you will want to curl up and keep reading until the very end! #ShotintheDark #MenoftheSecretService #ReadzTule @TracySolheimBooks

Shot in the Dark had the perfect mix of romance and suspense. The suspense was well written and kept me wondering who could be trusted. I really loved Josslyn and Adam's story, and the fact that Josslyn kept Adam on his toes. They are my favorite couple in this series so far. I voluntarily read and reviewed a complimentary Advance Reader Copy.

Loved this book, full of action, romance and suspense that will keep you turning the pages. Opposites that attract, Adam, from the Secret Service is guarding the First Lady's younger sister, animal activist, Josslyn, aka she devil. Soon there is more than protecting Josslyn, as they can longer deny the chemistry between them. Great characters, loved the chemistry between them. The banter between them will have you laughing out loud. My favorite line, "But it's just chemistry. And we're not ever acting on it because women like you always confuse it with something more." I think that line sums up the story. This is the second story in the series but can be read as a stand alone. I highly recommend.

Very enjoyable romantic suspense. This one is vastly different from what I usually read but intriguing and entertaining all the same. It has amazing characters that are well developed, excellent writing, and a storyline full of suspense with touches of humor and witty banter. Adam and Josslyn had great chemistry and you could feel their connection right away. I'd definitely recommend this one.
