To catch a have to use the perfect bait.

FBI Agent Bree Harlow is working the biggest case of her career. She's undercover on the hunt for a killer who has murdered three women--and she isn't going to stop until she brings down her prey. She's scored a job at Night's Edge, the hottest club in New Orleans, and she's just caught the attention of the club's owner, the sexy and dangerous Kace Quick. Everyone knows the guy is shady--and probably linked to every criminal activity in the Big Easy. She shouldn't find him so attractive. Shouldn't want to do anything but lock the guy away. After all, he is her chief suspect.

Be careful...sometimes, you can't see the danger coming.

Kace knows there is far more to Bree than meets the eye. He isn't a fool, and he can spot a Fed from a mile away, though he does admit that Bree is the sexiest FBI agent he's ever seen. He lets her play her game, though Kace plans to keep his hands very far off his gorgeous new problem. Then the attacks begin. Attacks all focused on Bree. And suddenly, it's not a game any longer because Kace isn't about to let his FBI agent get caught in the crossfire.

To hurt a man, you have to destroy what he wants most.

Kace has a powerful enemy working in the darkness--a man who wants to destroy Kace by making him look guilty as hell. Kace is being set up for murders he didn't commit. And now, the killer has locked onto his next victim--Bree. Despite Kace's best efforts, he has let Bree get too close. For the first time in years, Kace cares about someone else--a fatal flaw. And the killer in the dark can't wait to make Kace pay for past sins...The killer thinks he can hurt Bree, and by hurting her, the mighty Kace Quick will fall.

Things aren't always as they appear...

Bree won't be anyone's victim. She's not the damsel in distress--she's the woman ready to take down a murderer. She'll break every rule in the FBI's precious handbook in order to protect the lover she knows is innocent. Kace is hers, and Bree won't let anyone hurt him. She'll catch the real killer, she'll prove his guilt, and maybe, just maybe, Bree and Kace can stop their world from going down in flames.

Sex, murder, and lies...just another day in the Big Easy...DON'T TRUST A KILLER...a sexy romantic suspense from New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Cynthia Eden.

## FABULOUS. This book is phenomenal. Do I sound like a broken record every time I review one of Ms. Eden's books? Yes, yes, I know I do. But her books are just THAT good. Full of suspense, intrigue, romance and so much passion. I've lost track of how many of her books I own. Somewhere around 48 or so. And I treasure them all. I highly recommend buying this one today. Bree and Kace have an undeniable chemistry. I love that Ms. Eden wrote Bree so capable. One thing I can't stand is a weak heroine. Not Bree. A little green? Sure. But also brave, bold, and beautiful. The plot keeps you guessing and compells you to keep turning those pages as quickly as possible. I have already pre-ordered "Don't Love a Liar" and can't wait to devour that one as well.

Never expected this ending. The author created a few suspects along the way, but I never thought of the ending she provided. She did a great job in developing the relationship between Kace and the FBI agent while she tried to prove his innocence. I found myself reading through the night to get to the ending and discover the real killer.

It’s just another day in the Big Easy as Bree goes undercover to catch serial killer and catches the attention of the sexy and dangerous Kace who the FBI believes to be the crime lord behind the murders. Kace and Bree are bold, charismatic characters that easily bring readers into their world and hold them captive with their sizzling chemistry and daring and brave romance. Against all odds, the attractions burns hotter the longer they work together and the relationship has several obstacles that will have to be overcome including some past emotional baggage. Thrills and intrigue keep readers turning the pages of this fast paced and smooth flowing plot that has a dangerously edgy feel as the hero and heroine face some hair raising events and try to determine who the killer is before they become his next victims all while dealing with law enforcement that has decided Kace is guilty and they are determined to bring him down. Surprising twists keep readers guessing which adds to the intense thrill of the story and once again the author has created a well-developed world that she brings to brilliant life, making it easy for the readers to connect to the characters and to become part of the story and being set in New Orleans spices up the story as it helps set up the atmosphere and adds to the dangerous, edgy crime lord persona of Kace and some of his employees. I was completely caught up in this book from the very beginning and I was especially excited by the astonishing conclusion of Bree’s case.

Holy Heck was this one twisted, wild ride! Bree goes undercover to find evidence against Kace as the serial killer who is strangling women in New Orleans. She’s a green agent but she’s determined, until whatever this thing is between her and Kace makes her start to doubt everything and everyone. Kace pretty much owns this town. He learned to play the game as a young man and he’s only mastered it throughout the years. With all the players lined up he squares off against the one that he might not be able to walk away from. Dang but Kace was one dark anti-hero. He made me nervous, he kind of scared me and I was totally questioning his motives the entire book. Knowing this author I knew I’d get my happy ever after but I was worried how that was going to come about. Because Kace, he wasn’t like any hero I’d ever read. Bree was an exceptional heroine who even at her most vulnerable still managed to surprise me with her strength and her mind. She had what it took to do the job but I was constantly watching for what she might uncover, afraid it would be the very thing that would break her heart. Together, this couple lit up the pages of this book as the story unfolded, gradually revealing one clue and one twist at a time. There were so many freaking suspects, and characters I thought might be suspects, that I couldn’t stop reading. I didn’t want to stop reading. I enjoy a good romantic suspense but I absolutely LOVED this one! It was equally balanced and I never felt one element was weightier than the other. My mind is still whirling from all that was revealed and how everything played out. I’m actually going to miss this couple and hope like heck that I get to see them again in future books. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book provided by NetGalley and Hocus Pocus. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Kace Quick, powerful man, business owner and suspected to be the New Orleans Strangler. All signs point to Kace for the recent murders of the women who where thought to be his lovers. FBI agent Grayson Wesley is determined to take Kace down even if he has to step over lines to get the proof. Bree Harlow, FBI agent and part of Grayson's team. She assigned to infiltrate Kace's night club to get close to him, find the evidence they need to close the New Orleans Strangler case. She didn't know she would have to fight her own desire to get close to Kace and it has nothing to do with the murders. I've gotta say, the author did a great job of giving motive to a whole lot of people that kept me switching back and forth to who I thought was the real killer. I really like when a storyline is not predictable. The fact that it took me so long to realize who was involved, made this a great read. This author is pretty good with providing us the heroes who take what they want. While Kace had that in him, he seemed pretty toned down with Bree. I would have liked to have seen more intensity in him. Bree was a tough cookie that still showed her weakness when it came to Kace. I liked her and how she was with him. This is a standalone that had a bit of a tie in with Jax and Sarah from the book Shattered. I've not read it yet but it was a great teaser that has me off to go buy that book now.
