Dimon’s intense fourth installment of her Bad Boys Undercover series (after Facing Fire) brings readers straight into the dangerous world of the Alliance, a very secret group of former CIA and MI6 agents who undertake covert missions for civilians. When scientist Cara Layne goes missing while on an expedition in Russia’s Ural Mountains, her brother asks Alliance member Reid Armstrong—her ex-fiancé—to find her. He soon retrieves her, but several of her colleagues are still missing. As Reid, fellow Alliance member Parker Scott, and Cara search for them, the danger increases dramatically, and Reid knows he must focus on the mission, but he keeps being distracted by the realization that he is still in love with Cara. She’s a strong, independent woman who is the perfect match for the emotionally wounded, physically powerful Reid, and the simmering sexual tension between them propels the novel swiftly forward. Dimon has deftly combined sizzling romance with covert operations in a sexy thriller that will leave readers searching her backlist and eagerly anticipating future installments. Agent: Laura Bradford, Bradford Literary Agency. (July)
