Book Description

The wife of the White House deputy chief of staff has been beaten to death, and their one-year-old daughter is missing. D.C. Police Lieutenant Sam Holland is in charge of the murder investigation, but she's forced to collaborate with Special Victims Unit detectives as well as thorn-in-her-side FBI Special Agent Avery Hill. Then, a cold case of her father's resurrects old hurts--a distraction Sam cannot afford.
As Sam's investigation heats up, so does Nick's political career--and the heat carries over to their bedroom. Will Sam put the pieces together in time to catch a killer and find the baby, or will ambition, greed and lies prove fatal?

Review

"This series just keeps getting better and that's saying something because it was pretty damn AWESOME from the start!!! I LOVE reading the progression of Nick and Sam's relationship. I LOVE reading about all my other favorite characters and how their relationships are progressing also. Nick & Sam are definitely my all time favorite couple, hands down!!" --Best of the Best Rating from Belle's Book Bag on FATAL DECEPTION.

5.0 out of 5 stars No "deception" - just a perfect five-star read! November 12, 2012
By Anne W
Format:Kindle Edition
There's no need for me to revisit the product description. It's well-presented above.

Once again Marie Force has given readers a well-crafted romantic suspense in the latest addition to her top-notch "Fatal" series. A perfect combination of love, passion and suspense!

The devotion between Sam and Nick continues to grow stronger and the romance only gets more creative and steamier. It's downright swoon-worthy. The chemistry and banter that goes on between Sam and Nick is nothing less than genius. MF continues to develop the depth in her main characters, as well as in the secondary cast with new and fresh detailing. The family dynamics adds yet another level of reading enjoyment to this series. With each book readers are assured a well paced criminal plot with twists and turns that will keep you glued to your chair. Between the sizzling romance and the chilling suspense, I'm always a well-satisfied reader. "Fatal Deception" is exceptionally well-written with creativity, witty dialogue, and sizzling sensuality and once again delivers a complete package.

Marie Force is a natural at her craft. Time after time, this author creates magic that brings her stories and characters alive on the pages of her books. As a reader, that's the key to a great read for me. And it always keeps me coming back again and again to read every book this author releases.

I highly recommend this series. Try one book and you'll be craving more!

5.0 out of 5 stars What's not to love about Nick and Sam... November 13, 2012
By Doreen
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow talk about another awesome book added to a totally wonderfully writen series. I first feel in love with the writing style of Marie Force when I downloaded at the time a free copy of her stand alone book Love At First Flight for my Kindle and have been hooked ever since.

If you've been following the romantic suspense couple of Nick and Sam this is a must read book. You learn alot more about the couple and their friends and loved ones in FD. You find out more about what happened years ago to destroy Skip (Sam's father) marriage and why he didn't want Sam looking into an old case. There's a wonderfully writen dialouge between Christin and Nick about love, marriage and babies. The connection between Sam, Nick and Scotty grows even stronger as does the romance between Nick and Sam. And you get a brand new murder and a whole new political scandel for our new couple plus a whole lot more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marie does it again! November 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Marie's books keep getting better & better. After all her heartache & headaches over this story (computer crashed with her first 10 chapters), she's written another classic. I hope Sam & Nick live through many more books!

3.0 out of 5 stars A Bridge Over a Giant Shark Tank December 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read through all five Fatal books, and the novella. These are not the kind of book you read for massive depth, but rather for escapism; Nick and Sam do require a certain suspension of disbelief. I'm willing to gloss over what must be America's most indolent state senator and some pretty whack police procedure. I'm willing to believe that neither one of them has had such an exhausting day that they've ever skipped a single night of sex. And I'm even willing to believe that they're both having flawlessly consistent orgasms every single time. I mean, it could happen!

Where this series really jumped the shark for me was with the arrival of Scotty the Wonder Orphan. There is no child that flawless, and no child who has been in state care who comes through the system that unscathed - even a child living in the impossible magical group home described in this book. Speaking of impossible, there is also no state-licensed care facility that is going to allow a child to cross state lines and stay overnight with the Pope, let alone any other adult. Any couple looking to house a child for three weeks would require intrusive home vetting and background checks from a social worker, and in Virginia, time consumptive state-mandated training. Suspension of disbelief is one thing, but some basic research into child placement would have gone a long way here. Finally, that his gratitude is what endears Scotty to Sam and Nick is the worst of adoption tropes, and the characterisation of this relationship in Deception is a bridge too far for me. I suspect I am done with this series.

3.0 out of 5 stars least favorite of the series December 3, 2012
By pj
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoy thrillers and "a little" romance is fine. This last book seemed to me like author was trying to find ways to add sex scenes. Not sure why she feels she has to do a "50 shades" type book. Disappointing because the story line was good, minus all the kinky sex and scattered relationship story lines. A good writer doesn't need all that to keep readers interested. We get that Sam and Nick have great sex, what is their relationship really based on? We get it "SEX"! I really thought Nick was sexy now I feel like he's a creepy nympho. I also would have liked to have seen more with the Nick, Sam and Scotty story line. Sorry I wanted to like it just didn't.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just ok July 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoy following the story of Sam and Nick but the story line do seem a bit stale after awhile. Also, the addition Scotty is nice but I feel he is portrayed as much younger than his stated age. All that being said I will keep reading the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great series of books. March 4, 2013
By suzieQ
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Upon finishing each book in the series, I was anxious to receive the next one to see where the characters would be taken. My only criticism of the books in this series was the time devoted to the scenes of sexual pleasures. Others may view this as a plus. Although they were scintillating, I would rather have had more of the content of story.
