She was a distraction. He was a mistake.
Now they’re in each others’ way.
Rookie investigator Devyn Foster knows the pain of losing family. It’s what drives her to do what she does – finding the missing and the lost and returning them to their families.
Her latest assignment is no different, finding the computer a whiz who disappeared while working on a mysterious project. Even though his case has gone cold, she won’t let his elderly parents suffer. She will find him and return him back to them.
But that was before the one-night stand that changed everything…
Private Investigator Max Carson has never let anything—or anyone—stop him from getting the job done. So when he’s hired to track down a software program that could change the world, that’s exactly what he’s going to do… until he finds himself in a dead heat with a woman who’s just as determined as he is to get the job done on her own terms.
Now Max has to deal with two problems: how to get Devyn out of the way… and out of his heart.
Dark and dangerous.
So, I don’t always read romance, but will absolutely read romantic suspense. I absolutely love the mixture of steamy romance with adrenaline rushing suspense. That’s exactly what we get with Smoke Screen.
I love the tension between Devyn and Max. They are attempting to do their job, and solving quite the mystery, while trying to forget that steamy one-night stand. It is clear the attraction is there, and the sexual tension can be felt through the pages.
This is the second book in the trilogy, and I do think it would be best to read in order. So, my goal is to go back and read the first at some point this year! There was enough for me to go on, so I wasn’t lost. This didn’t detract from my enjoyment.
K. Nilsson delivers quite a story here. Sensual and suspenseful, I honestly couldn’t put it down. I would definitely recommend this one to romantic suspense fans.

K. Nilsson‘s love of reading began with the Bobbsey twins. When she ran across some Italian True Romance novellas stashed in the attic, the musty serials hooked her on adult fiction. Though black and white photos were dramatic enough to know what the stories were about, she taught herself to read in Italian and translated them to her friends. She’s an unapologetic reviewer of books, restaurants, and vacation destinations. An amateur photographer, K. loves taking editorial photos and documenting her travels. Her personal philosophy, sleeping is a waste of time.
