For Morgan Yancy, an operative and team leader in a paramilitary group, nothing comes before his job. But when he’s ambushed and almost killed, his supervisor is determined to find out who’s after the members of his elite squad—and why. Worried that this unknown enemy will strike again, Morgan is sent to a remote location and told to lay low and stay vigilant. But between a tempting housemate he’s determined to protect and a deadly threat waiting in the shadows, keeping under the radar is proving to be his most dangerous mission yet.
The part-time police chief of a small West Virginia mountain town, Isabeau “Bo” Maran finally has her life figured out. She’s got friends, a dog, and a little money in the bank. Then Morgan Yancy shows up on her doorstep. Bo doesn’t need a mysterious man in her life—especially a troublemaker as enticing and secretive as Morgan.
The harder they fight the intense heat between them, the closer Morgan and Bo become, even though she knows he’s hiding from something. But discovering the truth could cost Bo more than she’s willing to give. And when Morgan’s cover is blown, it might just cost Bo her life.
Praise for TROUBLEMAKER
“[She] can write one heck of a white-knuckle romantic thriller, and in Troublemaker she succeeds once again in seamlessly combining top-notch suspense with a super-sexy love story. Graced with a cast of compelling characters […] and seasoned with a deliciously dry sense of humor, this is Howard at the top of her literary game.”
—Booklist, starred review
“Romantic suspense queen Howard makes a welcome return with a marvelous new book, Troublemaker. This is vintage Howard, with all the wonderful characterization… slow-burn passion and dangerous action a reader could ask for! There is a reason Howard remains such a superstar—she always delivers!”
