Summary


"The Man" is back
Dan "The Man" Currington is back in fighting form with a mission that takes him four thousand miles south of BKI headquarters, high in the Andes Mountains of Peru. He's hot on the trail of a rogue CIA agent selling classified government secrets to the highest bidder, when Penni DePaul arrives on the scene. Suddenly the stakes are higher, and keeping Penni safe becomes Dan's number one priority.

And this time she's ready
A lot has changed since former Secret Service Agent Penni DePaul last saw Dan. Now a civilian, she's excited about what the future might hold. But before she can grab onto that future with both hands, she has to tie up some loose ends-namely, Dan Currington, the man she just can't forget. And a secret that's going to change both their lives-if they can stay alive, that is.


Review

I'm new to the Black Knights Inc series and this author's work but I must say this was a good introduction to this author.

Dan the Man is one of the Black Knights agents. A few years ago his life got devastated when he lost his wife in a shooting. His life spiraled downwards into boozing but he managed to get his life back in order and is out on a mission in Kuala Lumpur where he meets SS Agent Penni. Their attraction is instantaneous. Unfortunately, Penni also loses her entire team in a terrorist attack. Fast forward a few months later and Penni turns up at Black Knights Inc looking for Dan. The team at BKI send her off to find Dan. Penni has decided to lay her feelings on the line with Dan. She thinks there could be more for them.

As expected things don't go smoothly for both Penni and Dan's reunion. First, is Dan going to be able to finally let go and grab the opportunity of a second chance and secondly will they survive a rogue agent bent on destroying their happy ever after.

This story is packed with suspense, sizzling chemistry and great characters. It is obvious that the team have a great support network with each other and each character has a role to play. I enjoy a great romantic suspense and this hit a lot of the mark for me.

Message from the Author

Hi everyone! Julie Ann Walker here, delighted to be talking today about my mad love for men on motorcycles whose hearts happen to be as big as their... ehem... hogs. (That's slang for their bikes! Get your heads out of the gutter, you naughty readers! *wink, wink*)

But seriously, from the King of Cool, Steve McQueen, to Marlon Brando in The Wild One, to Charlie Hunnam in Sons of Anarchy, there has always been something about a guy riding around with rolled steel and a V-Twin engine between his legs. It sets our hearts aflutter. And in my Black Knights Inc. series, I try to take those badass bikers to a whole new level by also making them covert government operators. The series is all spies on bikes, leather and chrome, romance and redemption, action and adventure. So, what's not to love? Nothing! I guarantee it.

Read on for an excerpt of TOO HARD TO HANDLE. You'll see the men of Black Knights Inc. have heart, humor, and everything a woman could want in a man...


Excerpt: Too Hard To Handle by Julie Ann Walker

“Luke Winterfield,” Dan growled. “Under the authority granted to me by the government of the United States of America, I hereby inform you that you’re totally screwed. You made a choice to sell out your country and now you’re gonna face the consequences. Reap the whirlwind, asshole.”

“Nice,” Zoelner said. “Have you been holding on to that one for a while?”

“Came up with it in Bogotá,” Dan admitted, a definite grin in his tone.

“I like it.”

“Thought you might.”

“Really though,” Zoelner went on, “I was expecting some quote from Ted Nugent or Eminem.”

“I can come up with my own material, you know,” Dan insisted. “It’s just I like to give credit to my hometown whenever I can. To make up for the place getting such a bad rap.”

“Maybe it’s because so much bad rap has come out of there,” Zoelner mused. “Insane Clown Posse comes to mind.”

“Hey,” Dan whispered urgently, “don’t say that too loud. You’ll have groups of juggalos beating down your door.”

Zoelner snorted.

“And just so you know,” Dan went on, “what I’ve learned out of this lifetime is you should be proud of where you come from.”

“I’m waiting…”

“Kid Rock said that. Via his Twitter account.”

“And there it is.”
