There’s one name that has Agent Nala Dekker reaching for the gun holstered to her leg—Tantum Maddox, the one name her partner said before he died in her arms. After three years of searching for the faceless Tantum Maddox, his name has finally surfaced. Nala jumps on the first plane to Boston in chase of her long-awaited revenge. But instead of taking Tantum in for his crime or shooting him—in self-defense, of course—Nala nearly ends up in bed with the killer. So, it probably would’ve been a good idea to find out what her Target looked like before she went after him.
Agent Tantum Maddox has completed his assignment in Mexico… and now it’s time for his revenge. When Tantum finds a mysterious woman in his arms, and after he discovers exactly who she is—his Target—he must decide what to do with the gun concealed beneath her dress. Should he use it on her and kill her? Or spare her life and take her captive until he finds the answers he’s been looking for?
Somehow Nala’s innocence comes into question by the dangerously sexy Tantum Maddox and he accuses her of being a cold blooded killer. But why is Nala the one on trial, for Tantum’s the one who killed her partner—isn’t he? In this torrid twist of betrayal and seduction, will Tantum and Nala resist killing each other? Or worse, when the truth unfolds, will love become the only threat to their vindictive hearts?
The story is about two secret agents who meet while they are in disguise and have this instant chemistry. Unknowingly they are each other’s targets. But when they do find out about each other’s true identity the true game begins, unknowingly someone had set them up and will do anything to get the agents to destroy one another. Prepare yourself for surprising twists and turns, not to mention the sizzling chemistry between Nala and Tantum.
“The Risqué Target” is a very exciting and intriguing book, I intentionally tried to prolong my reading by taking pauses so now and then. But I failed in doing so, the story kept pulling me back and in the end I caved and read it in one go. I loved both main characters, Nala was such a strong woman with a little OCD problem, but just as any other woman she has moments of insecurity. Which were a few moments too many for my taste but every woman is entitled to them right? And then we have Tantum, totally sexy alpha male, possessive, bad ass and a bit of a control freak. What I really liked about them was that even though finding out about each other’s true identity the chemistry didn’t die, I’ll tell you the more they tried to fight their feeling the more intense and sexy it got.
The Risqué Target takes you on a suspenseful ride of two agents caught up in a evil mastermind’s plan to hunt each other down. They will have to make choices and sacrifices but where will these lead them? Further apart or will they be brought together and have their HEA? Read to find out, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
