John Loughlin, the Director of the Department of Covert Ops, is in New York City on a recruiting mission. He’s been tracking and evaluating one shifter in particular for some time. Cree Forest is a clever fox shifter—and very foxy. Cree is a translator for the UN and John is keen to recruit her brilliant mind and persuasive skills to join the DCO.
But Cree isn’t what she seems. Just as John has been watching her, Cree has been spying on him. She is working with a rogue shifter and John is getting too close—professionally and personally! On opposite sides professionally, can they trust each other with their hearts?
I received this book for free from Author Gifted in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Her Secret Agent is a fun, short story about John Loughlin, the Director of the Department of Covert Ops. Think of it has a shadow agency of the CIA which is in itself a shadow agency. He is on a recruiting mission in New York for a young woman named Cree. Cree had been on his radar for awhile because of not only her abilities with languages, but her seamless adaption to diplomatic issues and locations which made her almost a chameleon of sorts.
Cree, a woman who has the power to turn heads or become essentially invisible with a blink of her eyes has been following John as he had people following her. John had no idea what she had been doing, which for a career covert agent, he should have been able to pick her out of a crowd. This just intrigued him more.
What started as a job interview turned into the start of a relationship that could start a revolution, or end a life. It was up to John and Cree to determine what was really going on without tipping off the wrong people. Their dinner turned into more, but is it from the stress of what is going on, or is there actual emotion and feelings that are growing. Only time will tell if Cree and John can protect themselves and each other from the powers that want the status quo to maintain the status quo
I am not usually a reader of contemporary romance, but I met this author at Coastal Magic and so I decided to give it a go. It was good, it was unique, and I was personally intrigued by what Cree was, and how John and her were going to make things right, without losing their lives. Overall it was a good short read that really touched the edge of something much larger. Oh and right now it is free on Kindle, so check it out and see what you think.
