The only thing more dangerous than passion is the truth.

Former Marine and new Sheriff’s Deputy Cade Evigan is hanging onto his damaged soul—and his personal code—by a thread. His current mission? Weed out a violent motorcycle crew from a small mountain town. The problem? Katrina Killian, a woman standing firmly on the other side of the law, smack in the middle of the gang he’s there to destroy. She may get under his skin, but the sultry biker has criminal written all over her. So why can’t he see her like any other convict?

For two years, Katrina has been a DEA agent hiding in plain sight amidst a pack of killers, working to put an end to the gang that has terrorized her hometown. The last thing she needs is to fall in love with a man who could blow her cover—and her heart—to pieces, but Cade’s become an addiction she can’t break. Unable to risk either of their lives with the truth, she plays both ends against the middle to keep him safe. But lies can only last so long, and Katrina’s time has just run out…

Convicted is one of the sexiest suspense novels I’ve read in quite a while. It’s mysterious, hot and funny at the same time, while the story is unpredictable and the characters are just magnificent.

Katrina is a fierce, strong and kickass woman. She is highly intelligent, but she’s also very funny... ...more

I was pleasantly surprised after reading Convicted. It’s a sexy, action-packed little story.

I was given an ARC of Convicted by Dee Tenorio from Entangled for an honest review.

So I first started reading books from Entangled when I discovered Jennifer Armentrout and J. Lynn. Up until now, she has been my favorite romance author. She is now tied for first place with Dee Tenorio.

My Review:
This story was so good and I admit, I was shocked when I saw that it was a novella, because it truly read like a full-length amazing romantic suspense novel.

By Paula August 18, 2014

It has been a while since I read anything by this author. However, I do remember the Rancho Del Cielo Series fondly. There is still the sassy dialogue and immersed in the plot is the he thinks/ she thinks but Convicted is a grittier story of suspense and intrigue than that series was. I thoroughl... ...more

About the author

Award Winning Author

Dee Tenorio

Dee Tenorio has a few reality issues. After much therapy for the problem--if one can call being awakened in the night by visions of hot able-bodied men a problem--she has proved incurable. It turns out she enjoys tormenting herself by writing sizzling, steamy romances of various genres spanning paranormal mystery dramas, contemporaries and romantic comedies. Preferably starring the sexy, somewhat grumpy heroes described above and smart-mouthed heroines who have much better hair than she does. The best part is, no more therapy bills! Well, not for Dee, anyway. Her husband and kids, on the other hand...
