Sherrilyn Kenyon and fellow author Dianna Love have joined forces to pen the third book in their B.A.D. series, WHISPERED LIES, a gripping international suspense/thriller that begs to be read in one sitting.
French heiress Gabrielle Tynte Saxe (aka Mirage) is living the life of a recluse in Atlanta, hiding from her ex-husband and the people that killed her mother along with a bus of innocents. When she learns of the whereabouts of a kidnapped diplomat’s daughter, she tips off the Bureau of American Defense (BAD). BAD operative Carlos Delgado is sent as part of the rescue team. Following the rescue, Carlos decides to ferret out the evasive tipster’s identity and arrives just in time to see her about to walk off with someone he is certain no French heiress has any business knowing.
Authors Kenyon and Love have known each other for some time, but it wasn’t until Kenyon asked for help with her new suspense series, that they decided to collaborate and the result is an international thriller, WHISPERED LIES. This series has a Robert Ludlum meets Suzanne Brockman feel to it that really works. A secretive and dangerous group of international madmen, the Fratelli de il Sovrano, have united in an effort to rule the world and our heroine, Gabrielle Saxe under her alias Mirage, has fallen onto their radar for elimination.
WHISPERED LIES has everything you hope to find in a great thriller―suspense, tension and excitement. The elevated levels of anticipation, arousal and heightened expectations are perfectly paired with a sense of menace and mystery. Combining these elements with those of romantic suspense makes for one gripping storyline. The creativity involved with keeping the growing romantic relationship between the lead characters building while at the same time taking readers on a complex and multifaceted tale of espionage and intrigue prove that these two authors really know how to highlight each others writing skills to best advantage.
This reader is very pleased to add the writing combo of Kenyon & Love to her list of “must read” books along with Brockman, Melton and Girard and is eagerly looking forward to whatever comes next for the macho men of BAD.
