Overview

The First Kiss Was Strictly Business. . .

From Texas to Teaneck, someone is killing wealthy married couples and clearing their homes of luxury items. According to law enforcement, an undercover couple stationed in one of the targeted cities is their best shot at stopping the brutal crime spree. Enter Special Corruption Unit agents Roderick Radford and Helene Maupin. . .

. . .But What About The Second?

Professionally, posing as husband and wife should be a breeze for Roderick and Helene. But personally, it's a different story. For the pair bring to their mission a history of repressed emotions and unconsummated passion. Helene has loved Roderick for years, but an unhappy past--and an intimate secret--have kept her from wholeheartedly pursuing him. Confused by Helene's mixed signals, Roderick has kept his feelings in check, even taking on assignments that put distance between them. But now, as their clandestine kisses leave them yearning for more, and their work puts their lives at risk, they may discover that losing each other is one risk that isn't worth taking. . .

Undercover Lover by Katherine D Jones is the third book in the SCU (Special Corruption Unit) series. Roderick and Helene are back but this time with their own story. They are required to go undercover as husband and wife to solve a case that involves theft and murder of wealthy socialites throughout the country. The problem is both have real feelings for each other, but refuse to act upon them. How they handle being in such close proximity without acting on their emotions will have you turning the pages. Helene is not only stubborn but has unresolved issues from her past that have her living in a constant state of fear around Roderick. Roderick attempts to put her mind at ease only work temporary. He has to decide if she¿s worth the emotional risk. While dealing with personal issues with one another, they must continue to pretend to be a happy married couple to catch the culprits of the violent crimes before they strike again. Will this law enforcement duo solve the case or will they allow their feelings to get in the way? Ms. Jones skillfully crafts suspense with romance. Undercover Lover is an intriguing tale that will have you fanning yourself from the sizzling love scenes between Roderick and Helene. I¿ve read all three books in the series and this was a perfect way to wrap it up. If you haven¿t read the other two books, this one will have you running to the store to find them. I anxiously await Ms. Jones¿ next book.
