Desperate Deeds is the third book in the A-TAC series by Dee Davis and a Romantic Suspense from Forever, an imprint of Grand Central Publishing.
As the demolitions expert for A-TAC, a black-ops CIA unit masquerading as Ivy League faculty, Tyler Hanson has two great loves: literature and explosives. She lives by the motto "Duty First" and doesn't have time for personal attachments...until a steamy one-night stand turns into a professional partnership.
Burned by Betrayal
When Tyler meets Owen Wakefield, a handsome British operative, she seduces him with no intention of ever seeing him again. But then the sexy Brit is brought into A-TAC, and despite Tyler's efforts to keep her distance, she finds herself falling for him. Trusting him.
Owen seems too good to be true - and he is. He's hiding his true motives and identity, and no matter how he feels about Tyler, he can't keep her secrets. One of A-TAC's members has turned traitor and helped terrorists to hijack a shipment of nuclear weapons. As witnesses start dying and evidence starts disappearing, Owen and Tyler must race to find the mole - and prevent a final, cataclysmic act of destruction.
Desperate Deeds was submitted for review and I retain my copy.
Tyler Hanson is the munitions specialist for A-TAC. For the last ten years she has put together and taken apart anything that goes boom - and she is very good at her job.
America and Britain have been secretly working on nano tech nuclear detonators. When it comes time to move those detonators into British hands, Tyler is assigned to lead transport.
But something goes wrong and the detonators are stolen.
Owen Wakefield is assigned to meet the transport and take the detonators into British possession. When the transport is late, and then doesn't show at all - Owen is part of the team that goes in search of the transport.
What Owen finds is worrisome to say the least - the detonators are gone and it looks like an inside job.
Tyler and Owen, along with the rest of A-TAC must find the traitor and recover the detonators before they can be used.
Desperate Deeds was an enjoyable read, fast paced and well written. I have to say that I like the way Ms. Davis writes - it flows very well. :)
I give Desperate Deeds 3 out of 5 stars.
