She was a trained thief for the FBI. He was in charge of the FBI's elite ANSIR squad, responsible for preventing the theft of top secret government assets. Bitter enemies within the Bureau, Special Agents Kansas Hawthorne and Stewart Rio weren't prepared for their next mission: to pose as married crooks in order to steal a deadly nuclear trigger. But acting in love could prove to be mission possible when the passion between them starts feeling all too real....
Though this was a template-premise and plot Silhouette Intimate Moments/Romantic Suspense story with two "enemies" having to work together undercover to bring in the bad guy (You all know how that's going to end, don't you?), Ms. Bruhns created a nice, and explosive mixture of H/h to keep thins interesting, hot, steamy...And inserted in a nice little villain to keep them on their toes. Ad to that a mutual secret in the past, revealed at the most inopportune (and for that oh-so perfect) moment in the story, and you have yourself a winner.
Fast-paced, great characterization, wonderful suspense, and explosive chemistry. Loved it.
