DANGEROUS DESIRES, the latest from Dee Davis


Author Dee Davis has a new book available, with another releasing hot on its heels! DANGEROUS DESIRES is on the shelves now and DESPERATE DEEDS will be out around the first of August, 2010. The powers that be at Romance Junkies were smiling down on me (thanks, Cat!) and I was able to get all three books for review - talk about excited! I'm thrilled to share my review for DANGEROUS DESIRES with you now and will be chatting about DESPERATE DEEDS in a week or so!

About the book:
Stranded in the Colombian jungle after a mission goes bad, Drake has only one objective: evade the mercenaries hot on his trail and deliver "the package" to U.S. officials. But "the package" has a mind of her own, and she has no intention of trading one set of captors for another. Madeline Reynard is beautiful, headstrong, and hell-bent on escape after years as a crime lord's pawn. She'll risk everything for freedom, even if it means deceiving the dark, handsome operative who now holds her life in his hands.
Drake has been burned too many times to let a woman manipulate him, especially a secretive one like Madeline. Even so, they cannot deny the attraction between them. Now as enemy forces close in, Drake and Madeline must trust each other with their lives-or face certain death.

My review:
A woman desperately in need of rescuing and a man whose life revolves around danger and intrigue, a potent combination as they fight for their very lives in the jungles of South America. DANGEROUS DESIRES is the latest release from author Dee Davis, and readers who love suspense won’t be disappointed.
Madeline Reynard has had very little pleasure in her life. She survived an abusive childhood, committed murder to save her sister and spending time in prison. Add to that her spending the past three years purportedly as the mistress to one of the world’s most vile, evil crime lords. The loss of the only friend she had in prison was almost her undoing, but when she learned of the loss of her sister to a long battle with drugs, she gave up and played her very last card, hoping for salvation. When Drake Flynn and the A-Tac team come to her rescue, she’s skeptical about being delivered to safety and tries to escape them. Drake is nothing if not determined however, and Madeline soon finds herself safe and secure, a feeling she is unaccustomed to.
Drake is, to say the least, not very trusting of women. Seriously burned by the last woman he allowed to share his life, he’s even more distrusting of Madeline when she tries to escape, jeopardizing everyone on his team. Once both are confident that they are on the same side, they head to meet up with the rest of the A-Tac members. It’s hot in the jungle and passions flare to match the intensity of the harsh, steamy heat that surrounds them. Drake knows that he’ll never love again, but he can’t deny a strong attraction to Madeline.
DANGEROUS DESIRES smoothly follows DARK DECEPTIONS and is an outstanding continuation of an intriguing series by Dee Davis. Drake is instantly distrustful of Madeline and she in turn fears betrayal upon being returned to the U.S. Dee Davis has an incredible talent for taking readers on action-packed thrill rides, this time through the wilds of the jungle. The CIA’s A-Tac team works behind the guise of ivy league professors, but their knowledge of specific subjects add a realistic and interesting aspect to the series. Crucial research has been done to give characters the knowledge and expertise to carry out their roles as educators. Catching up with characters from DARK DECEPTIONS was a bonus. Back story is excellently written so as to not overpower or take away from Drake and Madeline’s story. I know that I won’t be the only reader anxiously awaiting DESPERATE DEEDS, available in August, 2010.

Ready for your own copy? Of course you are - buzz on over to Amazon and grab one! You might as well pre-order DESPERATE DEEDS while you're there because I guarantee you'll want it too!
Thanks for checking it out!
