Format: Paperback
Marisela Morales is a Cuban-American bounty hunter with a checkered past. When she's hired to keep her old lover, ex-con Fransisco Vega, from skipping bail, Marisela decides its the perfect opportunity to kill two birds with one bullet: she'll make a little cash and deliver a bit of payback to Frankie for breaking her teenaged heart.

But Frankie has other plans. Now an undercover agent for a private investigation company, he's been sent to recruit Marisela for their latest assignment, one that will propel the tough-talking chica into a world of glamour, intrigue, and international terrorism.

The first book in Leto's exciting new adventure series features relentless pace, dazzling settings, breathtaking action sequences and her trademark sensuality. Her portrayal of Tampa's Cuban community is spot-on, and her descriptions of my home state left this Florida girl more than a little homesick. Frankie and Marisela burn up the pages, and Marisela's new boss Ian provides some heat of his own.

In Marisela, Leto has created a strong, passionate, no-nonsense heroine with a heart of gold. The author portrays her Latina heroine with authenticity and expertise. Despite Marisela's rough edges (and gang member past), she is sexy, smart, and extremely moral. Unlike many of the action heroines in books today, she never comes across as cartoonish or invincible, but as a real woman who just happens to be very good at her dangerous job. Marisela may be kickass, but if you cut her, she bleeds scarlet.

I highly rcommend this series to anyone looking for thrilling, sexy read. I can't wait to read Marisela's next adventure!

Julie Leto has been one of the top writers to emerge from Harlequin's Blaze line.
She is a sassy, sexy author that loves people, loves her characters. She likes to dance on the razor thin edge of the envelope, is unflinching in her sexuality of those characters, so you could see Leto would soon want to spread her wings and walk on the wild side with a wee bit more 'elbow room'. She gets it with this Downtown Press title Dirty Little Secrets. On the ARC (Advanced Reading Copy) I received, it has a neat red and black Chit Lit style cover. I see they have updated it to give you a female James Bond feel. Whatever the cover, the package within is dynamite!
Leto is launching a new series, featuring a sexy, kick (...), Latina bounty hunter. She is not the stay at home Chiquita, but loves danger and chases it with a passion. She is also passionate about ex-boyfriend Francisco Vega. She hasn't seen her old love for ten years. A broken heart that never healed, sees her going after Frankie when he skips out on bail. Now, he's in the cross-hairs of her target for more reasons than one. She tracks him down to one of their old haunts, a Tampa dance club, and sets about to seduce the lad into her clutches.
Only, Frankie is on his own agenda. He's world is dangerous, deadly, as he moved through the underworld of arm dealers, killers and dirty dealings on the major level. Marisela is a complication he didn't need, only there is no shaking her. Not that he really wants to, mind you. So Marisela is pulled into Frankie's shady side of town, she has to prove there is more than one way to get her man.
This book sizzles with Leto's sharp writing. However, fans of Leto, understand this is not typical romance. This is adventure series where manhunting is literal!!

This book is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!! It was full of thrills, laughs, romance...all around great book. I couldn't put it down and finished it within a few days. The whole time reading I could picture the book playing out in my head - This would make an amazing movie/series. Thankfully this book is the 1st in a series so there will be more to come. Anyone thinking of buying this book - DO SO - you will not regret it. I can't wait for the 2nd book to come out.

Dirty Little Secrets is a page turner from start to finish! The plot is compelling, the characters likable and interesting, the tension building page by page. Very well done!

Marisela Morales is a GREAT heroine, and pulls off the starring role in this series with style and sass. With plenty of action (of every kind), a fast-paced story, colorful secondary, and a heroine with a backbone AND a heart, I adored this book. Very excited to find out there's another adventure with Marisela and Frankie, and I've already downloaded it. Hope there are more after that.

REVIEWER'S OPINION:
I just couldn't get into this. It reminds me of other novels about a tough female bounty hunter or investigator (of sorts) who has complicated approach/avoidance relationships with two men at the same time - in this case her boss and her former boyfriend. It felt like going through the motions of a story, but nothing was special or different. The plot was ok but ordinary. For a great story you need characters that interact in interesting ways, or characters that are fun to watch just as themselves. The characters in this book had nothing to set them apart. Unfortunately, I skimmed parts of the book reading the first line of each paragraph until I got to parts that were more interesting.

The key ingredient is Marisela's character. She's a tough fighter and loves the adrenaline rush that comes from a high-risk job. Her instincts are so good that she guessed someone's ulterior motive and successfully acted on it. She was smarter than her boss who caused some problems. It felt odd that her boss did some stupid and incompetent things. I'm not sure why it was odd. Anyway, I did not enjoy this. I prefer Shelly Fredman or Janet Evanovich for this kind of story.

This book is labeled "Naughty Girls" by Pocket Books. I was expecting it to be a romance novel, but it's not.
