Treated myself to a read today since I needed a bit of a break. I love the BAD Agency books by Dianna Love and Sherrilyn Kenyon so I bought this book of novellas since one of the stories was a BAD Agency story. It was great. Just like always, these two ladies nailed it. They just go from strength to strength.
I was happy to discover two new authors I hadn’t read. I guess that’s a reason for publishers to put out such books. The other two writers are Cindy Gerard and Laura Griffin. Both have hot law enforcement types as the heros. One has an agency called Black Ops, Inc. but the hero in the story was CIA and the other had a Navy Seal as the hero. I recommend you pick up this book and enjoy three great stories.
The only complaint I had was the boneheaded thing one of the heroines in one of the stories did. I almost decided to stop reading when she made that move because it seemed as if the writer put the heroine in a dangerous situation in a manipulative way. The heroine was written as a very intelligent person and this move was out of character in my opinion. She was safe and then interfered in an operation where she had no business being. I didn’t think the author was true to the character she’d created. I was disappointed in that part of the story.
I am one of seven members that blog on the Southern Sizzle Romance blog. We each blog one day a week. Saturdays are my day to blog. I have dubbed my day Bad-urday as I feature bad boys of fiction- books and films. This month is our one year anniversary as a group blog. We have Dianna Love as our guest blogger of the day and she’ll be blogging about her series co-written with Sherrilyn Kenyon. The heros of these books are all employed by the BAD Agency. An agency so secret, even the CIA knows nothing about it. It is an awesome series. Not paranormal which is usually Sherrilyn’s forte. I love these books. The first is Phantom in the Night. I bought it at LaGuardia Airport on a trip home from New York a few years ago- before I ever knew Dianna- and I loved it.
The second one is Whispered Lies (my personal favorite), and then there is Silent Truth. On September 28, 2010, a novella will be released. It is in an anthology called Deadly Promises and I’ll be lined up to get it. It’ll be my only one that isn’t autographed so I’ll have to wait til I see Dianna again to get that one signed. She’s an awesome writer and a great person. I highly recommend her work- I hope you’ll all drop by and check out the SS post on the 14th- here’s the link:
Here are the covers of the books so far- there are more coming in the future- stayed tuned as I’ll update you on the series as the books are released- here’s hoping for a long run.
