Undercover Emotions Mackenzie (Macki) Baudin, former undercover cop on the Riverfalls, IL police retired after suffering a very personal attack. Now she runs the best hotel in town and supervises charity work. Her uncle, the only family left after her parents died, insists on a high security level and justifies it by family history. OPAQUE agent Josh Slater fears the emotional history apt to be released while he works to protect Macki. Will the past between them prove the distraction necessary for their deaths? Ms. Shelton lays a firm foundation for an ultra-secret government agency and their nemesis. The action and secrets revealed late in the book make the groundwork worthwhile.

Everyone has something that can be used as leverage against them. Finding out what someone loves more than anything else is all it takes to make them do the unthinkable. Coercion Ten is the crime syndicate, run by dirty cops, that makes this concept their business model, and the Agents of OPAQUE are the good guys determined to stop Coercion Ten in their tracks. The trick is figuring out who is playing for which team. Protector Agent Josh Slater left his hometown ten years ago and never intended to return, and he never would have if the one man he respected above all other hadn’t given him a direct order. Protecting the director’s niece is not only the toughest assignment Josh had ever had, it will take everything he’s got to not let her know she’s the only person he’s ever loved, and the real reason why he left her crying on her doorstep when she needed him the most. OPAQUE is the law enforcement agency that Mackenzie Baudin’s father started, and her uncle is now the director of, putting a target firmly on her back as the leverage that can be used to wield her uncle’s enormous power. What she doesn’t realize is that she is also Josh’s leverage, and he doesn’t intend to let anyone figure that out. His mission for this assignment is strictly to keep her safe. His mission for the last ten years has been to figure out who was able to figure out his father’s leverage and get him to help crash the plane that killed Mackenzie’s parents. If he can do both, while also bringing down Coercion Ten then that will be a good day. Ten years ago Mackenzie lost everything, her parents were killed in a plane crash, and Josh Slater left town without an explanation, leaving her alone and heart broken, and filled with far too many questions. Ten years is a long time though and she is determined not to let the threat against her, or Josh being assigned as her protector affect her in any way. She’s a former cop, and hotel heiress, and more than capable of taking care of herself. But is she capable of protecting her heart as well? The first novel introducing us to the agents of OPAQUE will leave you wondering who is on the right side, and who is on the wrong side, of the law. Double agents are everywhere, who can you trust? Mackenzie and Josh have chemistry in spades, but can they resolve their issues and trust each other enough to find love again? Will the double agents of Coercion Ten use their love against each other? You won’t know for sure until you turn the very last page!

Josh Slater is an agent for OPAQUE. But his next assignment is a new kind of hell. He left his ex in a cloud of dust when she needed him most but how could he tell her that his father was the cause of her distress! Mackenzie (Mackie) Baudin is over Josh Slater. If she says it often enough it might even become true! When someone comes after her and her uncle send someone to protect her, she really didn't think it would be Josh he would send. Action and suspense from the get go! Great story with mostly empathetic characters (Sadly Mackie is not my favourite heroine. Something just made her jar and I can't even put my finger on what!). Plenty of twists and turns to keep you interested. But great writing and snappy dialogue kept me hooked!
