Romance Suspense

Special Agent Leif "Dusty" McAllister is working to uncover the truth about the Parish family and he will do anything he must to stop them in their tracks. But is he willing to pay THE PRICE OF GRACE to get his answers?

Gracie Parish had been adopted into the very unusual Parish family that is in truth a covert group of female vigilantes. The secrecy of it all is nearly too much for her as she has seen too many relationships fall apart because of it. The last thing she expected is to find Dusty and hope he can become a part of her life. After all the truths are said and done who will win the heart, the law or the family?

THE PRICE OF GRACE is Diane Munoz Stewart at her best. This is action-packed, thought-provoking, sexy, with a lot of twists and turns, and at times just fun. If you have not read the Black Ops Confidential #1 ( I Am Justice) you might find things a little confusing, but keep reading, it all falls into place. I will admit that there were a couple of times that I had to go back and re-read a section, just to make sure I understood what exactly was going on.

The family is very unusual in that they have mostly adopted girls (though there are a couple of boys mentioned and one they called brother) and Grace was one who was rescued by the family and now runs a club called "Club When?". Gracie loves her family but there are times when she just wants to be Grace and just get away from all of them. Dusty tries very hard to be the hotshot agent that goes by the book. That book goes out the proverbial window when it comes to Grace and his investigation brings about a sense of the family and what they do. Dusty learns that sometimes it is hard to tell the bad guys from the good guys and vice-versa because some of the people he trusted he shouldn't have and he learned to trust those he was told not to. The storyline also deals with other agents, a politician or two and a couple of abused women, which is what the Parish family does their best to take care of. You will, of course, have to read THE PRICE OF GRACE to see what exactly happens in the whirlwind romance and action-packed setup.

THE PRICE OF GRACE will give you action, danger, intrigue, a romance that will have you fanning yourself and smiling. It also ends with what some would call a cliffhanger and others a lead into the next book. It deals with Tony, the one brother in the family, his "death" and and "M-erasure" he pulled on Dusty. The storyline dealing with Grace and Dusty is wrapped up nicely, so I guess you can say it is a lead-in to book three.

SUMMARY

Who can you trust
When family, truth, and love are all on the line?


Gracie Parish knows the true cost of trust. Rescued as a child by the infamous Parish family, she became a member of their covert sisterhood of vigilantes. Gracie saw her most precious relationships destroyed by secrecy. She learned long ago to protect her heart as well as her family's secrets.

Special Agent Leif "Dusty" McAllister will do anything to uncover the truth about the Parish family's covert operations. Dusty knows Gracie is his ticket in. He'll use everything he's got--fair, unfair, and just plain wrong--to break through her defenses. But the more he gets to know Gracie and her family's mission, the harder he starts to fall. Neither one is sure they'll get out of this with their lives--or their hearts--intact.
