CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE! Diego has infiltrated the Hades Helmet ship and posing as the Ambassador, he finds himself struggling to pull the hardest con of his life. Trying to keep away from Hades Helmet crew member, Anarrae, is a struggle as he longs for her sweet embrace. He longs for a life with no masks, no lies and the passion that stirred between them on Il Doge. But an assassin is on the loose on Hades Helmet ship and it will take the combined efforts of the crew and Diego to find this mysterious person. Can Anarrae forgive Diego for lying to her even as the passion between them flares even hotter?

Ok, I have to admit, I waited for this continued story with bated breath after reading CARNEVALE(Book 2 in Hades Helmet Series). SUBTERFUGE continues where CARNEVALE left off and it is one heart stopping moment from the get go. I love the way this author keeps you riveted from the beginning. Selena Illyria creates characters you end up falling in love with and she leaves you wanting more when the last page is read. With each book from this author, you are taken on a journey that will leave you breathless and I, for one, am eager for more.

We met Diego in CARNEVALE when he seduced Anarrae and gave her a wild, passionate time on Il Doge during Carnevale time. Now he is running the biggest con of his life as a favor for a family friend and if he fails, it could mean his life. Anarrae couldn’t get Diego out of her mind. When she is targeted on the Hades Helmet ship, she has no idea her lover is closer than she thinks. Lies, secrets and love all rolled up into something both Diego and Anarrae will have to face as danger mounts. I loved these two characters. Ms. Illyria does a wonderful job continuing their story in this second installment and the multidimensional characters keep the plot flowing smoothly. I even enjoyed seeing some familiar secondary characters from the first two books be included. Tight writing, fast pace and a mystery that will have you eagerly flipping the pages to see what happens next to scorching sex scenes that enhance the story instead of taking over are all in SUBTERFUGE.

SUBTERFUGE is a wonderful story that will keep you enthralled from the beginning. I do recommend reading CARNEVALE first in order to understand some of the past events that are mentioned in SUBTERFUGE. If you are looking for one hot, erotic ride with a hint of mystery and romance, then grab SUBTERFUGE. I am eager to see who is next on the Hades Helmet Crew to find love as well as adventure.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
