"Deceit is simply explosive and I loved every minute of it. From beginning to end I was completely captivated."
"Deceit is a exciting read that draws the reader in and keeps you gripped right until the end.”
Covert, stealthy, cunning—I'm trained as a weapon. A lethal killer. I do what needs to be done in order to protect those who can't protect themselves.
I’m never the same person twice.
It’s never been an issue.
But I underestimated her.
The beautiful woman next door. There's something sexy about the way she watches me, eyes wide with an innocent curiosity. I find myself aching for her attention. I want her to look at me, but not when I'm covered in the blood of the man I just killed.
I live in the dark. She could be my light. I want her. And I know she feels it too.
When what I do puts her life in danger, everything changes. And I start to realize that maybe not all is as it seems. Every part of me screams to save her...
But what if I'm wrong.
What if she's the one saving me?
You’d think I’d be nervous, but instead, a rush of excitement flows through me as I traipse the halls of the hospital in my fake scrubs dressed convincingly as a doctor.I look the part.
I always look the part.
My fake ID badge sits proudly where I want it, allowing me to slip in where I need to be. Flashing my badge to the security guards stationed at the door I walk straight in closing it behind me, just as I knew I would.I have to do this.
You’d think considering a terrorist attack occurred not so long ago they would be better prepared than this. As long as I look the part, and have the appropriate badge, they’re convinced I am that person.But I’m not. I’m here for one reason and one reason only, and he’s lying here in this hospital room hooked up to the endlessly beeping machines, pumping oxygen and God knows what else in an inane attempt to keep him alive.
This man is the sole survivor of the attack. I wasn’t able to bring him down then, so my task is to bring him down now.Sliding the curtain around his bed as I step up to him, the metal rings clink along the railing while my heart races in my chest. Killing is something that comes naturally to me. I’ve done it for so long now it's ingrained in me.I can’t count the number of men I’ve taken out—all in the name of the Seven.
Alison's 3.5 star review!
"How can something so beautiful be so damn deadly?"
- the action or practice of deceiving someone by concealing or misrepresenting the truth
I love a good romantic suspense thriller. I don't read them often enough because most times I find them a little lacking in the thriller part. Sure the author can nail the romance side but often the suspense portion of story seems rushed or like something is lacking. Deceit was a perfect mix of suspense, thriller and sexy. I'm not going to delve into the story line because I hate spoilers and I was glad I knew nothing about it going in.
Kace Colt is dangerous, dark and sexy as sin and everything sweet, innocent Lily should stay away from. She knows he's got secrets but she's drawn to her mysterious brooding neighbor!!
This book is jammed packed with action, suspense, and betrayal.
Australian author K E Osborn was born and raised in Adelaide, South Australia. With a background in graphic design and a flair for all things creative, she felt compelled to write the story brewing in her mind.
Writing gives her life purpose. It makes her feel, laugh, cry and get completely enveloped in the characters and their story lines. She feels completely at home when writing and wouldn’t consider doing anything else.
