Lucy Monroe really knows how to make a romance novel fun and exciting. She adds her 007 spy-type drama into the mix and brings in Elle Gray, a tall, chic, super-model kind of chick who is actually a lethal weapon all on her own
- let alone what she can do with the guns she loves to play with.
Elle has been a widow for four years. She has the IQ of a rocket scientist but never liked the restrictions of the lab. When her latest assignment puts her into position to beef up the security systems protecting some of the countries greatest scientific achievements to date, she is right in her comfort zone. Information had been stolen recently on
a highly top-secret project, and now scientists are going missing as well.
Elle gets the surprise of her life when she walks into the building of her new undercover job and finds herself
alongside the sexiest, smartest, head scientist she could ever dream about. To make matters worse, her brother was hired into the company only a
few weeks before her arrival. Considering her job is the biggest secret in her life, these two men
are going to make the roomy work environment seem very tight.
For Elle, emotions were not an option, but Dr. Beau Ruston's trust in this too-hot-to-handle woman
isnít going to allow her any breathing room in his lab. He knows her real job is
as an undercover spy, and he waits and watches to see what she really wants. As the situation begins to unravel with internal spying and threats to other scientists, Elle must move quickly for the safety of all involved
- and Beau must accept that not all is as it should be with his trust.
Lucy Monroe really makes a success of this latest spy/romance novel. In comparison to some of her other spy characters and love interests, these two protagonists are not only likeable but refreshing. The romantic entanglements are nothing that hasnít been done before, but the characters
bring it alive. Shannon McKenna, the New York Times bestselling author of
romantic suspense novels, may have stiff competition from Monroe with the continued success of her
"Goddard Project" series.
