The dangers of falling in love while undercover by Samanthe Beck
Hi Anna! Thanks for having me back at Books to Brighten Your Mood to talk about my new release, “Lover Undercover,” from Entangled’s ultra-sexy Brazen line. Buckle up, because this time I’ve thrown danger, suspense, and dirty-dancing into the mix!
Kylie Roberts reluctantly switches identities with her injured identical twin, Stacy, to dance at Deuces, the upscale Hollywood strip ... er ... gentlemen’s club where Stacy works as a featured performer. The first night on the job is murder. Literally. Kylie finds a customer beaten to death in the parking lot. Next thing she knows, she's staring into the jaded eyes of Detective Trevor McCade, who, hours earlier, served as the unsuspecting recipient of her very first lap dance. He needs her help to solve the crime, and promises to protect her, but his keen gaze says he knows full well she's not telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. With Trevor posing as her new best client, the dances get hotter but the leads remain cold. Can this substitute stripper lure a killer to justice without losing her life ... or her heart?
Yikes…sounds dangerous, right? Let’s just say falling in love while undercover comes with a unique set of hazards! Kylie senses the peril of her ruse right from the start. Way before she knows Trevor’s a cop, she knows he’s a serious threat to her peace of mind:
Dark, seen-it-all eyes locked on hers. Recognition—one observer to another. The other men looked at her, but this man saw her.
Her stomach quivered in reaction, and her thighs tensed. In the midst of fear and mortification came a strange shock of…excitement, followed quickly by shame. What kind of woman got excited about cavorting next to naked in front of a complete stranger, especially one who liked to spend his evenings in a club like Deuces? A sick woman, for sure, but humiliating as it was, she couldn’t deny the secret thrill as his eyes moved over her body.
Trevor soon has his own dangers to deal with. This duty-first homicide detective finds himself posing as a customer, and on the receiving end of some super-hot private dances. Turns out his rule-book wasn’t written for such situations:
“I’m all eyes.” Keeping them on her face, he leaned back in his chair and mentally recited the Law Enforcement Oath of Honor.
She rose from his lap and slowly tipped her head back until her hat tumbled away. Then she crossed her arms behind her neck, lifted her hair, and let it cascade down her back. The Oath segued into a prayer for strength.
Prayers wouldn’t be enough, he realized, when she splayed her hands on her rib cage and slowly slid them up her torso toward her breasts. At the last minute, however, she hesitated. Her eyes drifted to his. “Do you want me to…?”
The cynical part of his brain took charge, because he didn’t have any prayers left. “You’ve got the innocent, virginal act down pat. It’s surprisingly effective.” Then the cynic surrendered and all he had left was the truth. “Hell, yes, I want you to,” he whispered. “I might die if you don’t.”
Brings a whole new meaning to the term, “undercover,” huh? Is “Lover Undercover” too hot to handle? You’ll have to judge for yourselves. ;)
About the Author
Sam was transfixed from an early age with any tale featuring a handsome prince, a great dress, and, of course, the all-important kiss, and eventually aspired to write her own happily-ever-afters. Naturally, she became a lawyer. The legal world heaved a sigh of relief a few years ago when Samanthe retired from law to take the plunge as a writer.
When not living the glamorous life of a romance author (i.e., chained to her computer), Samanthe keeps busy with the care and feeding of her extremely patient prince-charming of a husband, a not-so-patient ball of energy known as their son, a furry ninja named Kitty, and Bebe, the trash talkin’ Chihuahua. Their love, support, and willingness to eat Pizza Hut three or more times a week enables Samanthe to pursue her literary dreams.

He’s undercover. She’s in over her head. Yoga instructor Kylie Roberts is the good twin. At least she was—until an accident forces Kylie to step into her twin’s sexy stilettos at a posh Hollywood “men’s club." But nothing could've prepared Kylie for the dead body in the club’s parking lot or the ridiculously hot detective who insists the killer is targeting her regulars. Detective Trevor McCade needs Kylie’s help to draw out the killer. It means long nights undercover and long dances where Kylie’s body tempts him with sensual promises. Dances that leave them both wanting more. But despite Kylie's hidden identity and the danger lurking in the shadows, it’s only a matter of time before Kylie and Trevor take this undercover operation under the covers…
