A Little Harmless Secret (Harmless #10) by Melissa Schroeder


Just because you love someone doesn't mean you can trust them. 

Devon Stryker is a man with no past—not one anyone can dig up that is. His made up identity has kept him safe from everyone, except one woman. Five years earlier he let his guard down once, one night of unforgettable passion. He has yet to get her out of his mind. When he thinks he sees her in Seattle, he becomes obsessed with finding her. 

Alicia Hughes hasn’t forgotten Devon either. She had been on assignment from MI-6 to find him. Since he disappeared, her life has fallen apart. When she comes face to face with the one man she loved—and the one she fears the most—she panics. When he catches up to her, he finds the woman he has always loved—and the child they made together. 

As the old lovers form a tentative alliance, the feelings they both had for each other rise to the surface. They have to let those things go to protect everything they hold dear in the world because someone is intent on destroying them…by any means possible. 

WARNING: This title includes secrets, guns, a sexy know-it-all hero, spies, a heroine who doesn't trust the hero, meddling inlaws, even more spies, double crosses, cool computer things, and two people who can't seem to keep their hands off each other even though they know it isn't the right thing to do. Remember, it's a Harmless book, so have ice water and towels nearby. 

My review:
Devon lost his heart to Ali four years ago and then he lost her.  That story is told in the short Prelude to a Secret. Now four years later Devon discovers just how much he lost when he left her alone in that hotel room with just a note.  Life hasn’t been especially kind to Ali in the years since but she is strong and has had the best reason in the world to stay that way.  Now that Devon has found her again they are busy trying to keep her alive and if they are successful he isn’t walking away again.
Devon has been a secondary character in several of the A Little Harmless… books.  We know he is Dee’s twin, super smart, rich, sexy as sin and a former employee of the CIA.  Ali is a former member of MI6 and more than a match for Devon.  I have always liked Devon but I really got a kick out of Ali.  This story doesn’t enter the doors of Rough and Ready but we get to touch base with a couple of old friends from there.  This is a super quick, smoking hot, fast paced, action packed addition to the A Little Harmless… family.  It can be read stand-alone but is better read with at least Prelude to a Secret.
