ATF Agent Rosie Malone enthusiastically works undercover as a showgirl at Las Vegas' Silver Swan in a quest to find information on the sale of stolen 9A-91 Russian Assault Rifles. Recently killed Gus Friel worked at the Silver Swan when he engineered the illegal arms sale.
FBI Agent Mack MacDougal also goes undercover at the Silver Swan, but much more reluctantly than Rosie because he is working as a stripper, a job he held in college. He seeks a drug ring allegedly operating out of the Silver Swan.
Sparks fly when Rosie meets Mack when he tries to rescue her in a back alley. However, each wonders about the other's suspicious behavior to the point that they conclude the other is the miscreant they seek or an undercover FED. Besides that they both agree that they are falling in love although they fear what they will learn about the other person.
Fans of undercover police procedural romances will relish this delightful tale that pokes fun at the “cooperative” nature between government agencies. The story line is fun more for romance readers since the romantic story line serves as the prime theme with the charming lead couple falling in love while doubting the identity of their beloved. Readers will not feel guilty for fully appreciating Connie Lane's enjoyable tale.
