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…

Fast-Paced Romantic Suspense

My first book by author Dee Tenorio was an excellent read! The characters are snarky and sad, the plot suspenseful and well-written.

I adore emotionally wounded heroes and Cade Evington is near the top of the list. His days fighting as a Marine in Afghanistan have left him ...more

Review copy provided for an honest review

I love a good romantic suspense and Dee Tenorio delivered big time with Convicted. She had me numerous time on the edge of my seat, I found I had to remind myself to breath yet, there was a little bit of humor, some good natured verbal sparri ...more

By Kacie August 13, 2018

This romantic suspense did not disappoint. It was everything you could want fast-paced, drama, and super hot romance. I loved the tension and lust between Cade and Trina. Cade did not want to admit it to himself that he wanted Trina because he feared he would have to arrest her. They were on opposit ...more

Convict me and lock me up...

Obviously, I'm a sucker for broken military men, mainly Marines, suffering from PTSD and emotional problems and Cade Evigan more than fits the bill. But what I really like about this story, besides Cade, is bad-ass biker chick, Katrina Killian.

As a former Marine, Cade has ...more

By Shelley November 13, 2018

Good read. Well written with lots of action and great chemistry between Cade and Trina. I loved how their relationship started with Trina getting under his skin and annoyingly showing up in his life at random times, but he secretly loved it though he pretended she was a pain. ...more

By Kerry November 02, 2019

Lots of action, outside and under the covers.

A thoughtful plot full of tension and suspense with believable characters. The H and h actually take the time to get to know each other before falling into bed. ...more

By Karol Abel November 18, 2018

Great start of a puzzel to piece together.

I enjoyed the story line immensely, I gave it four starts because I think there could have been less sexual content and more story line. Glad to read strong women character along with strong, mysterious, male counterpart. ...more

By Beverlee Henderson August 09, 2018


First book I've read by this author and I guarantee it won't be the last. Rough and tumble and I don't mean just in bed. Some of the best sex scenes I've ever read. Grab it, lean back and enjoy every minute. ...more

By Janice July 30, 2020

Great entertaining read. The two main characters are a great together, I enjoyed reading about their interactions with one another. Trina is doing her job with no apologies and Cade is suffering with PTSD and doesn't know it. They help each other as a team. Loved the story.... ...more

By Monica September 27, 2014

Looking for a read that has action, humor, suspense and passion that’s explosive then Convicted is for you. Then there is the hot cover of the sexy Deputy Sheriff who can resist not picking up this read.

I truly enjoyed watching Cade and Katrina’s relationship develop. What started off as her wantin ...more

4,25 stars
After reading some pretty dirty books this romantic suspense came at eactly the right time! I was in the mood for some good ol' romantic suspense. And that's precisely what Dee Tenorio gave me! Though the focus was on the suspense plot, she struck the right amount of balance with the roman ...more

Update: Thanks to Tracy, Goodreads librarian, for correcting the series info!
Note: This is the first book in the Deadly Secrets series, the second book is Wanted. It would be great if a Goodreads librarian could update the info. I started reading Wanted first because it doesn't say anywhere that th ...more

4.5 stars - My review cross-posted from Wit and Sin:

Convicted is a sexy, gritty, exciting story that’ll keep you reading late into the night. Dee Tenorio keeps the danger – and the fantastic one-liners – coming fast and hard in this engaging romantic susp ...more

By Athena August 12, 2014

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. S ...more

3 1/2 Stars

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

Sheriff Cade Evigan is not a happy camper at having his beauty sleep disturbed in the middle of the night. He’s even less happy to find sexy Katrina Killian...aka Trina, aka KK, aka trouble with ...more

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.

I just have to ...more

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.

Katrina is an undercover DEA agent who's been trying to build a case against her uncle's motorcycle club for the last two years. She ...more

By Denise August 17, 2014

This is the first time for me to read anything by this author. I will admit I chose it for cover and storyline. Once I began the novel this author had the ability to intrigue me right away that set in a small town which being from one makes you familiar with them but this one is under siege by a mot ...more

Received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

Woah, this book was simultaneously crazy H-O-T and pretty dark for a romance.

I absolutely loved Cade/Katrina. Their chemistry could light their little corrupt town on fire. I think the 'forbidden fruit' element only served to increas ...more

Got an advance copy for an honest review from Entangled Publishing.

Loved this book. Cade and Katrina-Trina to Cade ,Katy to everyone else- are lost souls that not only need to be fixed but are searching for someone to love them, even though they themselves aren’t aware of it yet. Katrina is a DEA ag ...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...
