RUNNING HOT only $1.99!
Award-winning author HelenKay Dimon heats up the world of undercover operatives with her new romantic suspense series featuring the fierce men of Alliance—and the only women capable of taming their hearts!
HelenKay's novella, RUNNING HOT, kicks off the action-packed Bad Boys Undercover series with CIA operative Ward Bennett. It may look like Ward is camped out at a Fiji resort on vacation, especially when you take into account that he's been flirting with the sexy bartender for days now! But, Ward's undercover hunting down a dangerous dictator on the run. He just can't help himself around the ridiculously beautiful bartender Tasha. There's nothing wrong with a little bit of fun—that is until she drugs and zip-ties him to a chair. How'd that happen?!
When Tasha Gregory discovers the hottie on the barstool isn't who he pretends to be, her MI6 training kicks into gear. She has no choice but to take him out. She soon learns that Ward's not an easy man to put down for long. Who is this guy? More than once, his interference almost blows her surveillance operation. Trying to find out who he's working for isn't the only problem. He's damn hot and does something that makes it hard to keep her heart to herself.
As the situation heats up and their undercover identities are compromised, these two must decide whether they can trust one another and take out a deadly dictator. Working together might just make everyone safer, but getting too close for comfort, might just get them killed.
HelenKay has crafted the perfect beginning for the nail biting series that features the men of the Alliance (a joint undercover operation between the CIA and M16, the British Secret Intelligence Service). Filled with non-stop action, fierce men, a commanding woman, and a passionate romance, RUNNING HOT will give lovers of romantic suspense the thrill-ride they've been waiting for.
Thinking she might have a partner, Ward glanced to the side. The kick of pain had him blinking and swearing. "My head is killing me. What the hell kind of sex did we have?"
Well, that was a damn shame. "Is that why you tied me up? Because I'm totally capable. I assure you. We can go right now."
"You talk too much."
He'd been accused of a lot of shit on this job. Being chatty was not one. "You're not exactly coughing up information here."
"Nor will I."
"You were more fun as a bartender."
Her arm shot out so fast he almost didn't twist away in time. Not that he could get too far while stuck in the chair anyway.
At the last minute he threw his head to the side and took the brunt of the smack from the heel of her hand on his collarbone instead of his chin. "Damn woman that hurt."
"It was supposed to."
Felt like she held a weight in her hand or something. "Then congratulations."
"This isn't funny and you're no tourist."
That made them even because there was no way that hit came from a novice
