I was a case officer for the CIA before I started selling flowers and saccharine greeting cards in Savannah’s most popular florist shop. Sounds like the lead-in for a sassy chick-lit novel, doesn’t it?
I assure you, it is not.
Life, death, love, lies...that was my reality, and it’s about the furthest thing from chick-lit that I can possibly imagine. Even though I lived in secrets and shadows, I have no reason to lie to you about it now. Whether or not you believe me is up to you...but I hope you will.
*Note from the Author: Pistils was written and is intended to be read first, but Pistils and Sub Rosa are both standalone novels and may be read in whichever order you choose*
Graduating at the top of her class at MIT and specializing in Russian Studies, Vivian Carmichael is perfect for the CIA. It represents everything that she thought she ever wanted – mystery, danger and intrigue. And she gets far more than she bargained for on her very first assignment.
She’s to infiltrate one of the most dangerous Russian crime families and find out exactly how to take them down. Instead she meets a man that has the ability to steal her breath as well as her heart.
Parker would have called him sex on a stick…but it wasn’t that. Yes, okay, he was good-looking, but there was something else about him. Why did I feel so comfortable with him? Why did I find myself suddenly wanting to know more about him, to talk to him for hours until I could finally put my finger on what was causing this sudden and overwhelming fascination?
David Coburn has spent years working for MI6. He’s the best at what he does and high enough to not have to make explanations. And then he meets the newest American operative…
Vivian is the woman that he always wanted – beautiful with a wickedly sharp mind to match. And he just helped to send her into the lion’s den.
With danger all around them, Vivian and David find a love that they would risk everything for. But if they both make it out alive, love might not be enough to keep them together.
“No matter what, I’ll always treasure last night. No matter if we’re just friends from now on, no matter if we go for years without seeing each other or if you’re married the next time we meet. You and I are kindred souls, Vivian Carmichael. Do you know what ty nuzhna mnye means?”
One of the reasons that we love this series from Kate McNeil so much is that each of the books are as thrilling as they are passionate. The characters are whip-smart and the locations add just the right amount of exotic mystery.
Sub Rosa takes all of the things that we love most about thrillers and romance and blends them into a genre all its own. And we are can hardly wait to see what happens next…
