Illicit Intent (Bishop Security #2) by Debbie Baldwin

Gorgeously written and immersive… A dazzling tale…

Baldwin delivers another outstanding thriller, the second in the Bishop Security series, complete with engaging dialogue and sizzling romance. When a fairly straightforward news desk assignment for Calliope Garland ends up in her destroying valuable data, she doesn’t think much of the incident. But the man is found murdered the next morning, and there is an ever-growing list of people who want to harm Calliope. Setting aside her reservations, Calliope turns to the troubled Miller “Tox” Buchanan, a former Navy Seal. With the danger escalating for Calliope, Tox must do everything in his power to protect her. Baldwin brings every element of a must-read romantic thriller to the table: intriguing mystery, powerful, magnetic characters, tight plotting, and intoxicating chemistry. Tox is beguiling, old-fashioned both in his dealings and guts, and even though readers know he has to triumph, they don’t want to miss a word. Relentless and laidback at once, Calliope is fun, an odd match for the utterly cautious, rough-around-the-edges and yet vulnerable Tox. But their underlying chemistry is smashing, keeping readers invested in the pair’s slowly developed, convincing romance. Despite a plethora of mystery subplots, the suspense never falters, and the narrative is both fast and wildly entertaining. The novel works both as a contemporary romance and a high-octane thrillerand fans of both genres will welcome this roller-coaster ride. Expert pacing, characters readers can root for, and a twisty mystery plot make this a winner. Baldwin knows how to entertain.
