The Bureau of American Defense has just received a lead on the world’s most dangerous organization. The Fratelli de il Sovrano is a maniacal terrorist group and B.A.D. has seen all too well the destruction they can unleash. B.A.D. agent Carlos Delgado is determined to see the Fratelli brought down, and it’s clear that the agency’s only hope of doing so is to capture a mysterious informant known only as Mirage. When Mirage provides information that enables Carlos and his team to rescue a diplomat’s daughter from being turned over to the Fratelli, B.A.D. tracks Mirage down and sends Carlos to get the elusive informant. But Mirage isn’t at all what Carlos expects.
After several attempts on her life, Gabrielle Saxe went on the run, and has lived off the radar for a decade. Now, she uses her phenomenal computer skills to send anonymous tips on criminals to various intelligence agencies around the world. Gabrielle’s world is turned upside down once again with the arrival of a sexy agent she doesn’t know if she can trust. Gabrielle has every reason to be wary of Carlos, and he of her. Despite this, the pair can’t help but be drawn together as they team up to stop the Fratelli’s latest plot. But can newfound love hope to survive in the face of the danger the Fratelli presents, not to mention the lovers’ own respective pasts catching up to them?
Passion, danger, and romance pack one heck of a punch in the latest, thrilling installment of the BAD Agency series. Whispered Lies is a sexy adrenaline rush of a tale that had me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. Carlos is, quite simply, the perfect hero (without ever being cardboard perfect). He’s sexy, caring, protective, and has a past that has left him with scars on his heart and an uncertain future. I absolutely adored Gabrielle. She’s utterly brilliant and, though not a trained agent, nevertheless steps up to do all she can to save the lives of innocents. She has a strength of character I admire and it made her the perfect match for Carlos.
Though the seventh book in the series (third full-length novel), the authors provide enough information that Whispered Lies can stand on its own. However, fans of the previous B.A.D. book, Phantom in the Night, will know that the Fratelli storyline began in that story.
Sherrilyn Kenyon and Dianna Love, each phenomenal writers in their own right, are an extraordinary writing team, as Whispered Lies shows. I absolutely loved Whispered Lies the first, second, and (as I re-read yet again) third time around. It’s everything a romantic suspense should be and I cannot wait to see what happens in the next B.A.D. tale. Joyfully Recommended!
