Wyatt Blackstone's star rose rapidly in the FBI and descended just as fast when his personal moral code made him expose something that made him unpopular among his fellow agents. Wyatt is now the Special Agent in Charge of a new unit the FBI is trying to sweep under the rug. However, Wyatt has good people on his team and they show just how good they are, until the night one of his agents is killed during a surveillance case with another team.

Lily Fletcher is a computer wizard who became fixated on a criminal. That fixation turned into her own personal nightmare. When Lily could finally contact Wyatt to let him know she was alive and in desperate need of rescuing, she made a decision that affected the entire team. Now it appears that someone has guessed Lily might still be alive and is trying to force her hand.

Wyatt and Lily have to start at the beginning to figure out just who hid behind a screen name months ago. While that would be enough to keep both of them busy, it appears the FBI might be asking questions too, and don't forget about the team themselves, all of which brings a ton of action. Action that could have been used as a front for murder. When the final battle happens, can Wyatt protect Lily and his team while bagging a murderer? And what about Wyatt and Lily's future together, and with the FBI?

What would you do if a call made you choose between the career rulebook and your moral one? In Black at Heart the Special Agent in Charge of the Black CAT's must make this decision. Wyatt knows that his own moral code has come at odds with the FBI before and without hesitation, he puts a member of his team ahead of it again. Lily let her emotions blind her and she went semi around her boss in order to capture an obsession.

Black at Heart is the 3rd book in the Black CATs series. I’ve loved all of the books in this series, but Black at Heart is my favorite book in the series. Black at Heart focuses on Wyatt Blackstone and the young woman he will do anything to protect, Lily Fletcher. I’ve been trying to figure out how to talk up Black at Heart without giving away any spoilers, and it’s so hard. I can say that Ms. Kelly gives the reader an amazing story filled with romance and suspense. She kept me guessing in both Fade to Black and Pitch Black as to who the bad guy was, but I was finally able to figure it out in Black at Heart.

I look forward to more books in the Black CATs series in the future.

I absolutely loved this book. I was thrilled with the transformation of Lily. Her boldness in her pursuit of the truth...and even more so, of Wyatt...was fun to read. While her fear tried to drag her into being a victim, she chose to be as fighter. I have loved the other books in the series, but this one was by far my favorite. I can't wait to learn what happens to the team and where things take this couple in the future. Hopefully the fourth book will be out soon.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Black Cat computer guru Lily Fletcher has proven a god send to the field operatives working to bring down Internet predators. Team leader Wyatt Blackstone especially appreciates Lily, but also hides how attracted he is to her. When she dies in an operation (see PITCH BLACK) Wyatt grieves the loss of a teammate and his failure to tell her how much he wanted her.

At her funeral, Wyatt receives a call from a severely injured Lily, who escaped her abductor, but is in mortal trouble. Wyatt and Brandon Cole bring her home, but the frightened Lily cannot identify her culprit. She persuades the agents to let her remain dead for now. Soon afterward, a serial killer leaves "lilies" with the bodies; someone has targeted his Lily and Wyatt plans to give the predator a wreath when he brings the psychopath down.

The third Black CAT romantic suspense thriller (see PITCH BLACK and FADE TO BLACK) is a super tale that follows up directly from the events of the previous book with a deep focus on Wyatt who goes from grief over the loss of the teammate he loves to a myriad of feelings when she whispers to him over the phone to come save her life. The story line is fast-paced yet perspectives change as Leslie Parrish juggles her cast nicely adding to the intrigue and suspense. Fans will enjoy Blackstone and his Black Cats teammates going after the one left behind only to cleverly change into an exhilarating serial killer mystery with all the clues pointing at hacker Lily of the field.

As other reviewers have said- this is the best book of the three in the series. Wyatt and Lily were already very well defined, but their personalities just shone through in this book. I hope there is a fourth book in the series.

"Black at Heart" is the third in the "Black CAT" series by Leslie A. Kelly. If you haven't read the first two books, you will want to go back and read them first. You *could* start with this one, but you'll get so much more out of this third book having a deeper understanding of the back story.

My first impression - the author took a major leap forward in her writing style! At many points during this book, I thought to myself, "She is developing into a Karen Rose-type author." While the suspense in her previous books was excellent, it seemed to me that the romantic relationships were too superficial.

All of that changed with this book - much more romantic tension along with Kelly's excellent suspense build up. The character development was deeper and more nuanced, and therefore even more intriguing than the previous two books in the series.

What really stood out for me was the character development of the secondary and supporting characters. This is what made me make the Karen Rose comparison. The main characters of Wyatt and Lily benefited from their introductions in the previous books, and it appears as if the author is setting up future books in this same manner.

Well written, engrossing, better tension than in previous books, and more interesting character development - can't wait to read book 4!
