Deep Cover
Love Over Duty Book 3
Scarlett Cole



Ex-Navy SEAL Cabe Moss always comes when called to duty—at all costs. Even though the death of his fiancée nearly destroyed him, Cabe won’t let his past interfere with any work that has to get done. When his latest task pushes him to team up with FBI operative Amy Murray, a fierce beauty with the undercover skills to match, Cabe must admit that, for the first time in years, he wants to do more than just complete their mission together…

Amy was born ready for this assignment, but working side-by-side with the strong, silent, and frustratingly professional Cabe seems to be the biggest challenge of all. But when the sparks begin to fly—and the stakes rise to dangerous heights—the only thing Amy is left worrying about is how she can resist him. Their lives may be in danger, but their hearts hold the biggest risk of all…

I requested and received an ARC of this book from the publisher.

Once again I have started a series at the end instead of the beginning. Fortunately it didn’t matter at all.

Cade’s fiancé died in an IED blast while patrolling. In this book we see his reactions during her birthday and on the anniversary of her death. The first frustrated me but I got it, the second brought me to tears. Ex-SEALs he and his two best friends have started a security company and are contracted on this case with the CIA because of the international implications.

Amy is an FBI agent who has recently transferred to San Diego, after having gone through the hell of sexual harassment and the aftermath of her accusation. She specializes in searches for missing women, for a very personal reason.

After an initial interaction that didn’t end well, they certainly didn’t expect run into each other again. Two separate cases with a common denominator. A casino, a venue that Amy is uniquely qualified to go in undercover. She will be looking for leads on the missing women with Cade as one of her backup as he looks for the money trail.

Fast paced and suspenseful as the pieces come start coming together. Plenty of heat between Cade and Amy as they try to remain professional without moving on their attraction. Once they give in it’s explosive and just adds to the drama.

I now have to go back and read the other two books in this series. I really liked Mac and Six and their women. I need to read their stories.

The tattoo across my right hip says it all really. A Life Less Ordinary. Inked by the amazingly talented Luke Wessman at the Wooster Street Social Club (a.k.a. New York Ink). Why is it important? Well, it sums up my view on life. That we should all aspire to live a life that is less boring, less predictable. Be bold, and do something amazing. I’ve made some crazy choices. I’ve been a car maker, a consultant, and even a senior executive at a large retailer running strategy. Born in England, spent time in the U.S. and Japan, before ending up in Canada where I met my own, personal hero – all six and a half feet of him. Both of us are scorpios! Yeah, I know! Should have checked the astrological signs earlier, but somehow it works for us. We have two amazing kids, who I either could never part with or could easily be convinced to sell on e-bay.

I’ve wanted to be a writer for a really long time. Check through my office cupboards or my computer and you’ll find half written stories and character descriptions everywhere. Now I’m getting the chance to follow that dream.

I am represented by Beth Phelan at The Bent Agency, NY.
