Condor earned his reputation by being Delta Star’s ultimate secret agent. He’s untouchable, unstoppable, and he always nails his targets. But no matter how many times he’s saved the world, he’s a ghost who will never take credit. He works best alone, and to continue to protect his country, he’ll stay alone.

New Delta Star field agent Bridget Jamison is obsessed with capturing Simon Perez, the elusive terrorist responsible for her ex-fiancé’s death. When the Delta Star director hands the case over to Condor, a mesmerizing ghost agent who has the power to make her weak in the knees with one intense look, Bridget agrees to be Condor’s partner so that she’s not dropped from the case and her chance for justice.

Now they’re on a mission to infiltrate a dangerous criminal organization and capture Perez. It’s up to Condor to keep this beautiful, determined agent out of harm’s way, and to keep their explosive passion contained long enough not to risk their cover…and their lives.


Review:  I love books that involve action, being a spy, and catching the bad guy. This book has that and a whole lot more. This is also a BDSM story too, just to let the reader know, in case they don’t like those kinds of books.

This was a fast read, and kept me entertained and engaged. I found myself giggling at some of the antics between Condor and Bridget. She most assuredly kept Condor on his toes and Condor had his hands full keeping Bridget in line, as best as he could.

Bridget was a “ballbuster”, as the story described her. She’s used to doing things her way. She doesn’t like to listen to anyone and bristles at the thought of having to do so. She feels as if she has something to prove, and wants to be the best agent that she can be.  She has a hard time having to listen to someone else’s directives and not being the leader.

Condor is a Dom, a total badass, a man that has no attachments, no ties to anything, nothing that could or would keep him in one place.  He has a hard time working with someone else as he’s a loaner. He also doesn’t like someone questioning his actions and his decisions.

These two strong characters are placed together to help bring down a bad ass bad guy and the sparks between them fly, pretty much from the beginning when they met each other.  They both have a hard time being each other’s partners because they both like to work alone and have their own way of doing things.

If action packed drama, along with espionage and undercover covert operations are what the reader enjoys, then give this book a try. It was an excellent read.
