Synopsis: Angela Giacomelli is on her way to a hefty prison sentence. Betrayed by her fellow police officers, she is resigned to her fate, but en route to the prison, the bus is hijacked by covert government agents who are seeking Angela. They give her a new identity as Jax Cassidy and train her to take down special criminals. Her first case is to take out hitman Marcus Cross and his boss, Joseph Lazarus. What they don't know is that Cross and Lazarus are vampires.
Marcus is mesmerized by the feisty woman who continues to get in his way and heat his blood. What begins as a sparring match to find out who she works for turns into an all-consuming lust. As he begins to discover the truth about his creator and boss, Marcus only wants to protect Jax.
What I thought: Ms. Harlow hits all of the right beats with ENEMY LOVER. Jax and Marcus bring out the best of one another and their connection is tight. When they're together, magic and chemistry happens on the page and I couldn't help but fall in love with Marcus too. There's plenty of suspense, heat, passion and tears. Run, don't walk, to get your copy of ENEMY LOVER.
