It's been one of those mornings--have a cup?

My guest is romance author, Tawny Weber. I don't think it's a secret that I enjoy Tawny's books. I do believe I've read them all. They're a lot of fun and so is Tawny Weber.

I recently had a chance to read the second book in her Undercover Operatives, Sex Lies And Midnight. It's fun, engrossing, and dayum, it's HAWT! Did I mention sexy? Especially these men in the Black family—even the patriarch himself (who isn't in a real relationship—just sayin’). 

If you enjoy a light read that gives you a break from all the jobs you have, this is the series to read and enjoy. It makes you laugh, the characters make you drool and have to fight off covetousness, but you walk away refreshed and ready to tackle the day. J

The premise of the series is a single father, Tobias Black, con artist extraordinaire, who successfully raise three extra-ordinary children after the death of his wife. They all have unique skills but a situation develops that rips the family apart. They’ve all gone their separate ways and have been estranged from their father ever since.  Tobias has some crafty ideas for getting them back home and allow for healing. He’s playing a dangerous game because his enemies are circling and he’s the target. Or are they? Let’s just say, Mr. Black has some interesting contacts (I’d LOVE to see his story).

The second story involves Maya Black. She’s lovely and exotic—when she isn’t trying to be dull as dishwater. She’s left the wild life and computer crime behind her, along with her father.  Family ties are strong and while she has been deeply hurt by her father, when he’s in danger she’s willing to fight, and fight dirty, to keep him out of jail.

Ah, but in this story, nothing is as it appears to be, least of all Maya and her *stand-in* boyfriend. Let the undercover games begin and boy do they! This story is fast paced, characters are distinct and all seem to have a hidden agenda.

I seriously love the premise of this series. I'd love to see it continue and tell Tobias' story and romance, and tell the delectable Hunter's story. Now there's an intriguing character. You gotta write it Tawny!


Born into a con artist family, Maya Nicholas abandoned the grifting life to live on the straight and narrow (and somewhat dull) years ago. But when her family is threatened—and the swindlers are on the verge of becoming the swindled— Maya swings into action. All she needs is a stand-in boyfriend, and the charming, tasty-as-sin Simon Barton will do quite nicely, thanks.

But Simon has a little lie of his own. He's FBI, and Maya is his inside track to her less-savory relations. It's a mutual using, which quickly turns into a scorching mutual attraction.

In fact, their naughty little sexcapades are the only things they aren't faking! Excerpt
