About the Book
A thrilling, fast-paced novel of romantic suspense from sensational New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Linda Howard.

For Morgan Yancy, an operative and team leader in a paramilitary group, nothing comes before his job. But when he’s ambushed and almost killed, his supervisor is determined to find out who’s after the members of his elite squad—and why. Due to worries that this unknown enemy will strike again, Morgan is sent to a remote location and told to lay low and stay vigilant. But between a tempting housemate he’s determined to protect and a deadly threat waiting in the shadows, keeping under the radar is proving to be his most dangerous mission yet.

The part-time police chief of a small West Virginian mountain town, Isabeau “Bo” Maran finally has her life figured out. She’s got friends, a dog, and a little money in the bank. Then Morgan Yancy shows up on her doorstep. Bo doesn’t need a mysterious man in her life—especially a troublemaker as enticing and secretive as Morgan.

The harder they fight the intense heat between them, the closer Morgan and Bo become, even though she knows he’s hiding from something. But discovering the truth could cost Bo more than she’s willing to give. And when Morgan’s cover is blown, it might just cost her life.

You know the saying: "The way to a man's heart is though his stomach?" That’s pretty much the thought I had after reading Morgan and Isabeau's story, except is was more like: "The way to a woman's heart is though her dog". There is no doubt that the main character of this romantic suspense is Tricks-the-golden retriever. Along with Tricks, there are Morgan and Isabeau (Bo). Also, Troublemaker, to me, is more of a small town romance/suspense with some action scenes. I say that not in disappointment, but in true love for the storyline that Linda Howard has created, when the dangerous, undercover missions that these beautiful, tough military Secret Op guys do to serve and protect their country and get wounded. Except Morgan was shot after he thought he was safe at his home after just coming back from a mission, but Morgan doesn't know why anyone would want to shoot him or for what reason. The leader of Morgan's GO-Team sends Morgan to hide until they can figure out who wants Morgan dead.
I really did like Bo. She is a strong, independent woman even though her strength comes from the walls she has built to protect herself. The only one she lets close is Tricks, her golden retriever. But when her step-brother, Axel, asks her for her help to hide Morgan out at her home while he heals, Bo finds her walls crumbling down around this dangerous, sexy man that's determined to penetrate her heart and find out who the real Bo is behind those walls.
Morgan, oh yes Morgan Yancy is the handsome, strong, dangerous military soldier that had me swooning. Morgan’s not the kind of man that likes to be fussed over. Morgan is definitely the take-charge kind of guy. So Bo is definitely his kind of woman, a woman who’s also not a warm and fuzzy type. Yes, these two are made for each other. And their romance is steamy hot.
Tricks the golden retriever was a cute addition in this romantic suspense/mystery novel. Tricks is the smart dog that enabled Morgan and Bo to open their eyes to see their love for each other. Troublemaker is a must read, especially if you love the dog being the star of the story.
