Tasha Taggart isn’t a spy. That’s her sisters’ job. Tasha’s support role is all about keeping them alive, playing referee when they fight amongst themselves, and soothing the toughest boss in the world. Working for the CIA isn’t as glamorous as she imagined, and she’s more than a little lonely. So when she meets a charming man in a bar the night before they start their latest op, she decides to give in to temptation. The night was perfect until she discovers she’s just slept with the target of their new investigation. Her sisters will never let her hear the end of this. Even worse, she has to explain the situation to her overprotective father, who also happens to be their boss.

Dare Nash knew exactly how his week in Sydney was going to go—attending boring conferences to represent his family’s business interests and eating hotel food alone. Until he falls under the spell of a stunning and mysterious American woman. Something in Tasha’s eyes raises his body temperature every time she looks at him. She’s captivating, and he’s committed to spending every minute he can with her on this trip, even if her two friends seem awfully intense. He doesn’t trust easily, but it’s not long before he can imagine spending the rest of his life with her.

When Dare discovers Tash isn’t who she seems, the dream turns into a nightmare. She isn’t the only one who deceived him, and now he’s in the crosshairs of adversaries way out of his league. He can’t trust her, but it might take Tasha and her family to save his life and uncover the truth.


  • Mission impossible mixed with romance

    By Renavoo
    The only thing I didn’t like about this book is that we have to wait until March of 2024 for the next one. A fantastic story- think Mission Impossible with love, dom stuff and so many laughs (love the Taggerts and the extended clan!), this story had it all. And it was different in that Tasha was the operative while Dare is the damsel in distress. But this was so well done that they felt like partners in a well coordinated play that set up so many of the next gen’s stories. And so excited am I to read about their HEAs even though I read the first generation’s stories. I loved the foreword that Lexi Blake wrote to discuss some of her concerns about writing about the next gen when she went so deep with their parents. This was a job well done. A great intro to the book and this book is a fantastic entry into the series. Can’t wait till the next one!
