Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another Gem by Leigh If you have read anything by Lora Leigh, you know what to expect from her books and they are hot, hot, hot, and this book is no different. The overbearingly confident alpha male who's irresistible, check, the strong willed heroine who falls prey to the alpha male, check, a plot that is dangerous and entertaining, check! All in all, this book is entertaining and well worth the read.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from AWESOME BEGINNING AND ENDING MAKE UP FOR AN OKAY STORY HIDDEN AGENDAS is part of Lora Leigh's Tempting Seals/Elite Ops series of which I am a huge fan. As Usual Lora Leigh's bedroom scenes are some of the hottest you'll ever read and wow can she write a delicious alpha-male hero. Her descriptions of these muscular, testosterone filled, bulge in the jeans men are yummy. For some reason though this book just never really caught my attention. Kell and Emily as our H/H both felt flat to me and the storyline and love scenes were somewhat repetitive. I did however enjoy both the sexy beginning and the exciting ending but had trouble getting into the bulk of this story. In a very erotic opening we find the Senators daughter, Emily Stanton evading her latest bodyguard and taking dance lessons in a strip club as research for her book. Lieutenant Kell Kreiger who has secretly been watching over her for years manages to talk his way into receiving her first lap dance. This is one hot scene. Ironically Durango team is then assigned to personally protect the Senator and his daughter, with Kell posing as Emily's lover until they can flush out a spy. Someone has been feeding information to the evil drug lord Diego Fuentes and he has plans to kidnap her. Emily suffers from spoiled little rich girl syndrome and because of her over protective father has led a sheltered life except for those times when she manages to evade her bodyguards and get herself into trouble. The problem now is she can't evade Kell and isn't sure if she really wants to. Kell falls in love with the spunky Emily very quickly and although he wants to marry her he can't even tell her how he feels. He will first have to come to terms with a tragedy from his past so that he can give himself to her wholly. I had a bit of trouble here with Emily's status as a virgin but Kell's sexy Cajun accent whenever he got turned on allowed me to overlook this. Although Emily's constant fights with her father were still overdone and boring. Kell and the team escort Emily to several society parties where we meet some potential mole suspects. They even manage to have steamy sex in a limo before Fuentes and his spies eventually kidnap her. Will Kell be able to rescue her in time? And who's that drugged and naked Navy Seal locked in the cell with her? Even though I was somewhat disappointed with this particular instalment it's still a necessary part of a great series and I think it could also be read as a stand alone. It was good to hear from my favourite Seal, Nathan again and finally get some back story on him. I also really enjoyed Ian and Kira as secondary characters and look forward to their story next in KILLER SECRETS. If it hadn't been for the repeated sentences, missing words and sloppy editing this book could have been way better. This has been a constant complaint with the series and it's frustrating. I found myself regularly re-reading paragraphs or getting annoyed by a character saying the same thing just phrased differently. Which doesn't allow the story to flow as it should. Ms Leigh please get yourself a better editor. 3.5 stars

Rated 2 out of 5 by from S'okay I thought this would be as hot as "Dangerous Games" but alas no. Yes, there's a big macho hero and a virgin heroine. Overall, this was like an all-brawn-no-brain-you-woman-me-man and you're mine and no one else can even look at you type of story. Boring. The hero reminds me of a caveman complete with club and the heroine is too weak to stand up to an alpha male. When you start skimming thru the book, that's a bad sign. If you can wait, go to the library for it. Maybe the next SEAL novel will be better.

Read from the Book

Chapter One   In the middle ages emily Stanton would have been tied to a stake and set aflame for witchcraft. Or bound in chains and stuck in a dark little hole where she couldn''t drive sane men crazy, Kell Krieger thought with a grin as he kept a careful distance between himself and Emily''s Trailblazer as they traversed Atlanta''s increasingly heavy traffic flow.   Were it the Middle Ages, he would have rescued her from a dark hole or the stake, outfitted her in leather, given her a sword and followed her into battle. Because sure as hell, any man who saw her coming at him would have been struck dumb long enough for a strong warrior to lop his head from his shoulders.   But it wasn''t the Middle Ages, and Atlanta''s traffic wasn''t really a war zone, it just resembled one sometimes. Like now, just before rush hour, when those fighting to escape the maddening traffic jams were driving like kamikaze students with no fear of death.   Emily certainly had no fear. But then again, he couldn''t remember a time when she had known fear. Even when she should have, the time she was bound and shoved into a dirty shack on the Fuentes compound and glared at her captors with hatred.   What she had on the freeway was experience. Someone had taught her aggressive driving techniques that would have done a SEAL proud. Hell, she had lost the tail he was certain she hadn''t known she had, miles back.   Research. He was betting she had taken some kind of lessons on
