SEX, LIES & SURVEILLANCE is my first Carina Press release and it's also my first straight contemporary romantic suspense.
For me, that meant no shapeshifters, no witches, no MAGIC!!
I was writing in the "real" world and that meant I had to follow normal laws of reality. But who says normal can't mean extraordinary?
Janey DeMarco is the youngest child of Frank and Grace DeMarco, decorated spies now living a quiet life running a private investigation business with their three children.
While Janey longs for an exciting life outside the office, she's also worried that her brother Nic will forget to eat if she's not around and her brother Jimmy will blow up the office from his underground lab. She's terrified her father will work himself into an early grave and her mother...well, her mother might just drive Janey to drink with her matchmaking.
Of course Janey has her eye on the new guy in the office. Brainy Mal Laughlin is everything a smart girl dreams about. He can hack a firewall in five seconds and and still manage to have a conversation about hockey. He's perfect, so of course there has to be something wrong with him.
Janey is about to find out how extraordinarily right she is...
SEX, LIES & SURVEILLANCE releases Monday, January 16.
Janey DeMarco would love to have a sex life—and she has a serious
crush on the new guy in her office. As manager for her family's P.I.
firm, she knows an office romance would end in disaster. Not only are
her parents former spies, but her older brothers are tall, dark and
overly protective. Still, a little sex would go a long way to reducing
her stress levels, and the man is hot...
NSA operative Mal
Laughlin has been sent undercover to find a link between the DeMarcos
and the gun smugglers who killed his partner. Unfortunately, the only
evidence points to the woman who's making him hot, hard and ready—Janey.
Mal is hiding something, Janey's determined to find out what. Can she
do that while keeping her own secrets? Janey and Mal plot a course of
seduction to uncover the truth about each other but when they're thrown
together on a dangerous assignment, sensual meltdown is imminent and
secrets are about to be revealed.
