Terri Mitchell is an ex-DEA agent working for B.A.D (Bureau of American Defense). She must prove that she is innocent and find the culprit who has framed her for murder. Terri does not trust easily anymore and finds herself in the precarious situation of trusting a man known as the “phantom.” Only Terri was ill-prepared for the passion that erupts within her when she is near Nathan. Will Terri open her heart and trust the man she has fallen in love with? Or will her guarded heart turn away a chance at love and happiness?
PHANTOM IN THE NIGHT is the best romantic suspense tale I have read all year. Within the pages of this intriguing tale are enigmatic characters woven into a gripping plot that will leave you breathless. PHANTOM IN THE NIGHT is the type of book that keeps you in its clutches until you read the last page and leaves you completely sated days after reading it.
Nathan Drake is an edgy character with a wicked sense of humor. I was utterly captivated by him. His sense of family duty is honorable and breathtaking. Although he is determined to not fall in love with Terri, his heart will not be denied.
Terri Mitchell is a charming heroine who does not take any lip from anybody. I love her strong-will and stubbornness to find the truth no matter what the consequences could be. She is not willing to surrender her trust to Nathan, but learns that if she wants a chance at happiness with him, she must concede.
The secondary characters added a lot of spice and there were a few that mesmerized me and I enjoyed reading them immensely.
I have enjoyed reading the whole B.A.D. series, but the newest in the series, PHANTOM IN THE NIGHT, is my favorite. It is mysterious, edgy and the wicked humor tops it all off. I thought I had the “villain” figured out and was pleasantly surprised when another twist was thrown into the mix. I was shocked to my toes when I learned who the real villain was. I look forward to reading more of Sherrilyn Kenyon’s tales and Dianna Love has become an “auto-buy” author for me.
