A warning ignored…a love denied.

Four years ago, Major Jack Ballentyne followed Special Agent Lowry Fisk into a death trap. Fortunately, both of them lived to tell the tale, but when he had Lowry drummed out of the British Intelligence Service for her own safety—and his own peace of mind—he knew she’d never forgive him.

Lowry Fisk knew, she just knew, that the Service had a mole, and it was up to the Assassins, the secret black-ops unit of the Service she and Jack belonged to, to find him. And as the Assassins leader, Jack should have believed her, even though she had little evidence beyond a gut feeling. But when he hadn’t, she’d taken it upon herself to find the traitor—and ended up assaulted, shot, and left for dead. Jack had come to her rescue, but it had been too little, too late.

Now all she wants to do is forget the attack, the Service, and the sexy, steely-eyed Major with the power to make her feel weak. But the mole is on the move, and he’s coming for Lowry to finish what he started. Jack has to get the stubborn, dangerously gorgeous woman to let him back into her life and allow him to protect her—without allowing her to worm her way into his heart.

Incy bloody Black you made me cry and then some!

After reading Hard to Hold, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Hard to Forget, even though I questioned how Ms Black could possibly surpass the brilliance of her debut. To say I was stunned by this book would be an understatement. I felt as though m... ...more

By Miranda September 07, 2014

This book was nowhere near what I was expecting - at all. I mean, the synopsis sounded good but I didn’t expect the fantastic writing, the hot tension between Jack and Lowry, and the dark scenes that Black brought to this book.

Hard to Forget starts with so much commotion and action that it is har... ...more

An adrenaline rush from beginning to end.

I loved Jack and Lowry and their sparkfilled relationship, with espionage and guns blazing to thwart them.

The second in this excellent series just as sassy as the first, I now can't wait for Will's story! ...more

Hard to Put Down!!

From the moment I started reading this book I could not put it down! Action and intrigue started on page one! Despite her tragic past, Lowry, is sweet, brave, realistic and quite funny at times. Bruised and on the verge of being broken, Lowry fights to keep her head held high by... ...more

For a start, what an opening to a book! Incy Black doesn't disappoint if you're looking for a piece of romantic suspense that will have you on the edge of your seat the whole way through. Unlike the previous novel, Hard to Hold, I did not feel confused about the setting and could relax into the s... ...more

It took this book to confirm it, but Incy Black has made it on my auto buy list.  After reading Hard to Hold in April, I was eager to read the next installment in this series.  I have to say that I enjoyed this one even more than the first.

Ms. Black has a very unique voice/writing style that keep... ...more

By Pansy October 07, 2014

According to Goodreads, Hard to Forget is a book two. According to me, I cry bullshit! The events in this book take place before the events in Hard to Hold - the alleged book one. Not that it really matters. Both books do very well as stand-alone reads. The same cast of main characters are in bot... ...more

This fast paced action, suspense, romance will get your heart racing from the first page. A hero and heroine that at times you want to shake senseless and other times you want to say shut up and listen to each other!

By Bette October 08, 2014

This is definitely one book that is hard to forget! Overflowing with gripping suspense, incredible chemistry between the H/h, and deep dark emotions. The writing is fantastic with a fast pace that makes this book hard to put down. Put this one on the top of the tbr list, I highly recommend it. ...more

****A gifted copy was provided by the publisher for an honest review****

The beginning of this book played out like a cannon shot a lead ball into my stomach. Dread iced my heart but I was hooked.

By A. Freya September 15, 2014

Hard to Forget is the second book in the Hard to Series by Incy Black. Hard to Hold is the first book and it’s Nick’s and Anna’s story, while Hard to Forget is about Jack and Lowry. Plus, Hard to Forget’s events are before Hard to Hold’s events!!! I wasn’t aware of that before I read Hard to Forg... ...more

I will start by saying I received a copy of this book for review from Net Galley before I even knew what it was about. I knew nothing about this author, and there was no blurb to explain the plot. I simply requested a chance to read the book based on having previously really enjoyed books by this... ...more

By Elaine October 06, 2014

Gosh – this book certainly lives up to its title – it will certainly be hard to forget and will want to re-read in future. It pulls no punches in this tale of espionage, secret ops and the characters therein. Four years ago the heroine, Lowry Fisk, believed their was a mole in their operational t... ...more

This is one author I am so glad to have gotten to read because she knows how to write the kind of novels that are riveting not ordinary. This not your average special ops romance because this author delivers so much more. In this novel it is Major Jack and once was Special Agent Lowry. When you s... ...more

By Dísir November 20, 2014

I read Hard to Forget straight on the heels of Hard to Hold and felt that this book, unlike the first, was spectacular in every way.

Black seems to have found a more balanced, grounded writing voice in this book, and the result is a gritty and absolutely riveting tale (with some ludicrous moments... ...more

I think that just about sums it up, together with 5 glowing stars for this novel, Incy Black's second offering of the 'Hard to...' series.

Lowry Fisk, Special Agent with the British Intelligence Service, had broken ranks and went undercover. She tried to tell anyone who would listen that there was a dirty agent somewhere high up in the Service but no one would listen. She'd been dubbed a conspiracy theorist.

This book was awesome! This is book two in the Hard to Series and it kept my attention from the first page, until I finished it. Former agent Lowry Fisk has been running from her past for years, she knows that there is a mole in the agency, and has been staying out of limelight so that the assass... ...more

By Eve October 06, 2014

Wow! This is full-on hard-hitting James Bond/Secret Service/spy novel scrumptiousness. Hard to Forget is insanely good—even better than Hard to Hold—and Hard to Hold was pretty-darn good. In Hard to Forget, the snark from Ms Black’s first book is replaced with a sophisticated, all-consuming, whit... ...more

Lowry used to be a special agent who was following her gut instinct. She was investigating a dirty agent, and ended up in an extremely horrible situation. She ends up getting raped, shot and kicked out of the Agency. The worst for her is that no one would believe her. She ends up in seclusion and... ...more

About the author

Incy Black

It took a swan dive from a roof to convince Incy (aged 5) she wasn't an avenging fairy and no, she most certainly couldn't fly. Bruised, but undefeated, she retreated deeper into her imaginary world populated with the brave and the poisonous. When not fighting injustice and righting wrongs on "Planet Incy" she works as a Marketing Director. (Unfortunately, her law degree languishes unused, the distinction between good and evil proving too worrisome in real life.) Her five children are well versed in what scares her (most things) and delight in pushing her neurotic buttons, at their peril.
