The Agent: Brilliant, beguiling Alicia Corbin.
The Mission: Persuade brooding SPEAR operative East Kirby to return to the field as her partner.
The Surprise Maneuver: Things were going according to plan until East invaded Alicia's heart!
Sharon Sala begins a new sub-series to the Intimate Moments line with Mission: Irresistible. In this installment, ex-SPEAR agent, Easton Kirby is compelled to assist Agent Alicia Corbin in her endeavor to save the head of the SPEAR organization whom no one has ever seen and very few should know about. Jonah, as he is called, is actually a series of men who adopt the name and the accompanying anonymity. This particular Jonah finds himself being threatened by someone who knows of his existence and knows his identity. He sends Alicia to persuade East to assume an active status. East is very reluctant to do so and though the guilt sits heavily upon him, he refuses to assist until his son is kidnapped. For the sake of his son, he will get involved and help Jonah along the way.
The first in a year long series titled "A Year of Loving Dangerously".
SPEAR Operative Alicia Corbin must persuade East Kirby to help out her boss, by any means necessary. But East was once a SPEAR operative, and doesn't want the pain of returning to that life, even temporarily. Then something happens and East and Alicia must work together to solve a mystery and save someone important to East.
This is a great beginning to the SPEAR saga. I love all Sharon Sala books and strongly recommend this one too.
SPEAR operative Alicia "Ally" Corbin has been given her next assignment. She must persuade former SPEAR operative Easton Kirby to come back into the fold and help their mysterious boss, Jonah, find out who is trying to ruin him. East is done with the spy game and has no intention of going back, even if the tempting Ally would be his partner in the field. But when East learns that his son has been kidnapped by the same person who is threatening Jonah, he and Ally must work to rescue Jeff before he becomes a casualty in this war.
This is the first book in a multi-author series called "A Year of Living Dangerously". This book gets the series off to a good start. I enjoyed seeing East and Ally working together to figure out where Jeff was being held. My rating: 4 Stars.
