The second book was A Little Bit of Deception by Marilyn Pappano. Chance walked away from his one true love once before but he doesn't plan on making the same mistake twice. To his family, he was born under a lucky star, and he hopes to keep his luck running. Life as an undercover agent has made him lose the woman of his dreams once, he doesn't plan on letting Mary Katherine get away a second time.
This is a great read. You'll love the adventure and romance. I know I did.
Harry Phelps was in the wrong place at the wrong time, inadvertently placing himself in danger and ruining a long planned bust when police officer Jack McCain has to spring to his rescue. When Jack saves the older man's life, Harry orchestrates an opportunity for his daughter to meet the police officer, introducing him as a security specialist. After all, society women from the finest families don't date cops, despite the fact that men of their own social strata often appear insipid at best.
Harry's daughter Grace has grown weary of her mother's attempts to make her over in the appropriate image. Grace prefers basketball courts to ballrooms. Just once she allows her mother to dress her and that just happens to be the night Jack meets Grace. But love at first sight leads to Grace trying to live the image she believes Jack loves. When the truth comes out, about them both, the question remains if each will still love the bold stranger hiding behind the façade.
"A Little Bit Dangerous"
Paddy Monroe has a reputation for falling victim to cons and then playing innocent. So when he looses his life savings aboard a gambling boat, only his granddaughter Mary Katherine tries to delve into the incident. She knows her grandfather's weaknesses, but sacrifices her summer in an effort to please him just the same.
Unfortunately, Mary Katherine underestimates the task she's accepted. A schoolteacher more accustomed to sitting behind a desk than heels, she unprepared for the sexy revealing costumes and three-inch heels. She's also absolutely stunned to learn the man who cost her reputation, fiancé, and family's respect eight years ago works as security aboard the QUEEN. Further, while she suspected nefarious dealings aboard the riverboat, she underestimates the danger her questions bring to both herself and the man she still loves.
But these marvelous tales of love will delight romance fans that enjoy a touch of danger in addition to passion. Both authors have a flair for drama that moves the plot along quickly. Further, the heroes and heroines are spirited, funny, and vividly real, providing perfect escapist fiction. Very highly recommended.
