A dangerous mission brings Federation lieutenant Sera Ayers into uncomfortably
close proximity to two equally dangerous men.
Years ago, Ash Walker broke her heart after announcing his engagement to another
woman and asking Sera to be his mistress. Heart broken, Sera fled, floundering
through life until she established a successful career in the military. Now Ash
is back in her life, and if that weren’t bad enough, he’s her superior officer.
Brandt Pela is the third member of the undercover team. As long-time best
friend to Ash, Brandt is very familiar with the story of Ash and Sera’s previous
romance. When the mission plan mandates that Sera must play mistress to one of
these men, Brandt seems the lesser of two evils.
There will be cameras watching their every move while on their mission, and
their lives will depend on their enemies believing their relationship is real,
making frequent intimate contact mandatory.
Both Ash and Brandt are determined to take full advantage of the situation to
seduce Sera into their lives rather than just their bed. Sera has no hope of
holding out against the sensual onslaught by either man, but when they combine
forces she knows she is fighting a losing battle.
I became a fan of author Lauren Dane after reading her digital books published
by various e-publishers. To see this talented writer move into the big-time
with a New York print publisher is absolutely wonderful. The more successful an
author is, the more novels their fans will be able to enjoy from them, right?
UNDERCOVER is a really great story, and one that I expect will
garner more than a few new fans for Ms. Dane’s work. With a delicious blend of
kinky sex, suspense, and romance, this story grabs the reader’s attention and
doesn’t let go until the final page.
With two alpha male heroes, you would expect to have a power struggle between
the two, and there is a bit of that. The deep friendship these two share helps
them find a middle ground where they share that dominant power. In fact, it is
his friendship with Brandt that helps Ash bridge the chasm between him and Sera,
allowing them to find a happy ending together.
Sera is one lucky, lucky woman. A relationship with either Brandt or Ash is the
stuff women’s romantic and erotic dreams are made of, but a ménage with both
men? Absolutely mind-blowing. Although naturally submissive in the bedroom,
Sera has more than enough backbone to hold her own with both men, no matter how
masterful they are.
Readers should know before beginning the story that although the primary focus
is on each man’s relationship with Sera, there are some pretty hot scenes where
the men share their sexual attention with each other as well.
UNDERCOVER is a sensual exploration into the dynamics of long-term
ménage relationships with a fantastic Science Fiction setting. This is a
must-read for fans of Lauren Dane, and a perfect introduction for erotic romance
readers who are new to this author.
