Vancouver, British Columbia – Present Day

Special Agent Alan Hyatt is working undercover as a journalist while investigating suspected high tech espionage. As part of his disguise, he will live in actor Jillian Sinclair’s home as one of her boarders. Meeting Jillian for the first time, an instantaneous lust for her engulfs Alan, making him realize it’s going to be tough to maintain impartiality. Not that Jillian is the prime suspect, but you never can be too sure. Living in close quarters also makes it hard to keep their distance from each other, especially when the attraction is mutual.

Jillian loves her job and loves having people around her. Owning a house in Vancouver near the studio is convenient, while Jillian stringently lays down rules, which include no personal relationships among the boarders. But her new boarder, Alan, has her suddenly feeling the urge to break the rules, even though she’s not looking for a commitment. Will she just go for a hot affair and worry about why the thought of his leaving scares her?

DEAL WITH THIS brings together Jillian and Alan, who first appeared in THE REAL DEAL and SATISFACTION GUARANTEED respectively. Jillian has a bohemian reputation, but deep down is a woman who's afraid to let anyone get close to her emotionally. Enter Alan into her life, and suddenly she's inexplicability drawn to him. It doesn't take her long to figure out there's more to his story of doing a report on the Vancouver film industry. But that doesn't stop her from falling under Alan's spell. Alan knows he needs to be careful not to expose his true identity. At least one person has died during the investigation, and the last thing he wants is more bloodshed. A little side distraction by getting involved with Jillian could be murder to the investigation, but Alan decides to take the risk.

Who among the film industry is responsible for possible illegal activities and what will the end result be? Alan is totally hot and will have readers fanning themselves while swooning. The sex scenes are blistering, making DEAL WITH THIS an intense read.

Lucy Monroe delivers with DEAL WITH THIS, a must-have for readers looking for sizzle and suspense with their romance. Don’t miss out on some terrific reading; pick up DEAL WITH THIS.
