Dante admired everything about Eloise. She just needed to "loosen up" a little.
They both had an opportunity for the same promotion. Before the Sargent made his decision, they were both assigned an undercover assignment to work together on. Would they survive their differences while living in the same house?
Te Lawman's Secret Vow is a delightfully, although somewhat predictable, story. It is well-written, captivating mystery/romance novel.
The Characters were very "true to life" and felt real. The scenes were depicted well so the reader could easily visualized. The Cover and Title were "fitting".
The tale sustained the reader's interest until the very last page.
*I offer a Four and a Half Stars rating.
*This was a gift sent to me with no expectations for a positive review. This is my honest review
Eloise did not have the same familial support as Dante did growing up (or now, for that matter) and this has left her with insecurities that threaten to hold her back. At the same time, she has a big heart and a strong spirit – and I loved how she acclimated into the neighborhood and really blossomed there. She and Dante are opposites in many ways (which adds to the delicious tension between them) but at heart, where it counts, they are more alike than either of them realize.
Bottom Line: Two great protagonists with stellar chemistry. An undercover marriage with a high-stakes case. Intriguing supporting characters and lots of delightful possibilities for the series. If you love the undercover marriage trope, then you’ll love rooting for Dante and Eloise as their friendship builds into something more all while trying to catch the bad guys and secure their spots for the same promotion.
(I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book)
Florida detective Dante Matthews is a fun-loving guy. His leap before he thinks attitude has gotten him into trouble a few times in his career, but he always gets the job done and it's simply the only way he's ever known to be. When he's placed on assignment with a co-worker ... the very co-worker whose name is also in the ring a promotion against him ... things get very interesting!
Eloise Archer is thrilled to be in the running for the vacant Sergeant position, but she knows Dante is tough competition, and when she's paired with him on her first undercover assignment with the stakes being the promotion, all bets are off. What they don't count on, is the endless pull of attraction drawing them to wish they really were the husband and wife team they are portraying!
When Eloise is partnered with Dante Matthews to pose undercover as newlyweds, their respect and attraction for each other grow.
Tara Randal gives readers a peek into the challenges and strains of working an undercover operation. Between the façade the detectives put on for the neighbors, the balance of not getting too close to the people they are surrounded by (or each other for that matter), and uncovering the big players in a criminal network, and life gets very interesting.
The chemistry and growing friendship between Eloise and Dante are organic and developed nicely through the story. When opposites attract, there is sure to be some head-butting between two headstrong characters.
Randal does a superb job in highlighting the opposites in Dante and Eloise even down to their families and upbringing. And I loved Dante and his brothers (and can’t wait to hang out with a couple of the others in future books).
