This week my teaser comes from An Affair of Deceit by Jamie Michele. I chose this romantic suspense title from Amazon Vine. It will be released on April 30. Here is the description:
Diligent attorney Abigail Mason doesn’t have a lot of time—not for the father, a legendary spymaster, who abandoned her years ago, and not for the charming CIA agent who’s suddenly asking questions about his whereabouts. But her interest is definitely piqued—just what has her father done to find himself in the agency’s crosshairs?Teaser:
A trained psychologist, Agent James Riley doesn’t need his degree to figure out that the persistent, sexy Abigail will be a problem—both for his investigation and his heart. And while he needs her cooperation, he’s not ready for the hands-on, dangerous role she insists on taking in the search for her father.
As the two uncover startling truths about a secretive past, can Riley shield the woman he’s come to love from a madman who wants her to pay for the sins of her father?
This pulse-pounding sequel to An Affair of Vengeance tests the strength of love against the crippling power of lies.
He'd never seen a person look so alone in a crowd. Fascination compelled him to stare. Her stance remained rigid and her feet were immobile, neither shifting nor shuffling as she waited. Her head didn't pivot or bob. she made no effort to engage anyone in casual conversation, or even exchange a friendly smile.
