I would like to give a warm welcome to romantic suspense author, Melissa Cutler, joining us with her ICE Black Ops series and book, Tempted Into Danger!
"Why ICE?" with Melissa Cutler
Melissa Cutler here, and I'm so excited to be on Reading Between the Wines talking about my latest action-adventure romance, TEMPTED INTO DANGER. TEMPTED stars ICE black ops agent Diego and a "mathlete" super smart heroine named Vanessa. One of the questions I get asked a lot is "Why ICE?"
ICE stands for Immigration and Customs Enforcement and operates under the umbrella of the Department of Homeland Security. When I first learned about ICE, I was intrigued by the international nature of the department. They have attaché offices all over the world and protect our freedom and borders by tracking international criminals, weapons smugglers, human traffickers, art and artifact thieves, and drug cartels, and money launderers. That's pretty badass, am I right?
We civilians will never know if ICE really has a secret black ops team, but if they do (and I bet they do), I like to believe they'd be as smart, courageous and lethal as Diego and his crew are. Oh, and just as smokin' hot, too.
Here's a scene to Tempt you:
Tempted into Danger is in stores now:
From the back cover of TEMPTED INTO DANGER:
When a simple mission to deliver the beautiful and brilliant Vanessa Crosby to a safe house goes horribly wrong, ICE agent Diego Santero’s life gets complicated. Keeping the anti-crime analyst safe from the notorious mercenaries after her program will put everything he’s worked for at risk. Relentlessly hunted and not knowing whom to trust, Diego takes Vanessa on the run, deep into the heart of the deadly Panamanian rainforest. Vanessa reminds herself that she’s just another asset to the ruggedly handsome black ops agent…until their intense situation leads to a release of passion neither expected. But even if they make it out alive, how can they ever have a future together?

Melissa Cutler knows she has the best job in the world, dividing her time between her dual passions for writing sexy contemporary romances for Kensington Books and edge-of-your-seat romantic suspense for Harlequin. She was struck at an early age by an unrelenting travel bug and is probably planning her next vacation as you read this. When she's not globetrotting, she's enjoying Southern California's flip-flop wearing weather and wrangling two rambunctious kids.
To one lucky commenter, Melissa is giving away a copy (print or digital) of her backlist title, SEDUCTION UNDER FIRE, which is another of her ICE books and a prequel to TEMPTED.
