Boston homicide detective Angie Carlucci thought she was getting a much-needed vacation. But her Florida Keys holiday is interrupted when she sees someone dump a body bag in the ocean. In the tangle between arms dealers and treasure hunters, she's the only witness -- and the main target. Unless a certain boat captain can keep her safe.
A pretty cop complicating his mission -- and endangering his cover -- is the last thing federal agent Jason Bodwell needs. Yet the more Jason and Angie work together, the closer they grow Jason's willing to risk his life to solve the case...what will he risk for love?
COMPELLING SUSPENSE COMBINED WITH IRRESISTIBLE ROMANCE MAKES COVERT PURSUIT ONE OF THE BEST LOVE INSPIRED SUSPENSE ROMANCES I HAVE READ. REED DOES A WONDERFUL JOB OF DEVELOPING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ANGIE AND JASON BY SLOW DEGREES, ALLOWING US TO BE PRIVY TO THEIR INNERMOST THOUGHTS REGARDING THEIR MUTUALLY RELUCTANT ATTRACTION TO ONE ANOTHER. THE SOUND SUSPENSE IS PROPELLED BY ACTION -- LOTS OF ACTION -- AND MAKES FOR AN EXCITING READ. WHAT I REALLY FOUND REFRESHING WAS THAT NEITHER ROMANCE NOR SUSPENSE TOOK A BACKSEAT -- REED MANAGED TO GIVE BOTH PLOTS EQUAL BILLING. A GREAT COMBINATION!
