Diligent attorney Abigail Mason doesn't have a lot of time--not for the father, a legendary spymaster, who abandoned her years ago, and not for the charming CIA agent who's suddenly asking questions about his whereabouts. But her interest is definitely piqued--just what has her father done to find himself in the agency's crosshairs?

A trained psychologist, Agent James Rile

This is the first of Jamie Michele's books I have read and it certainly wont be the last. This is a top notch thriller which could hold it's own in the genre. Abigail Mason's father has gone missing, which is a bit of a surprise to her. This is because, as far as she is concerned, he has been missing for 20 years. Now he has completely dropped off the radar and the CIA are looking for him. In comes Agent James Riley who is tasked with finding him. As this is a romantic suspense it will not come ...more

Jamie Michele's second novel, "An Affair of Deceit" (Montlake Romance 2013) is as much thriller as a romance novel--and that's a compliment. In fact, she does such a good job of weaving the two genres together, you will consider it pretty close to real-life.

Let me provide some backstory. After two decades, Abigail Mason no longer hopes her father will return to the daughter he abandoned. She has become a top-notch criminal attorney and uses whatever anger she holds against the man she barely rem

Even though reading the first book, An Affair of Vengeance isn't 100% necessary, I highly recommend it. You see, in the first book the two main characters are trying to take down this kingpin weapons dealer. In this book, we meet Abigale who's father is the spymaster for one of the agents from the previous book. Apparently, he and the kingpin, Kral, have gone missing along with all the missiles. So there is a lot of reference to the first book, and even though the author does a good job of filli ...more

Abigail Mason is a driven lawyer who keeps her emotions well buried. She is still mourning her father's abandonment of her and her mother and self-identifying her feelings for her father as both anger and indifference. While she and her Chinese mother have made new lives for themselves in the USA, they are estranged.

When charismatic CIA agent James Riley comes to see Abigail, she finds that she isn't as over her father's abandonment as she had thought. James tells her that her father has recentl

“An Affair of Deceit” by Jamie Michele started out with a bang. I could not keep up with all the twists and turns of this spy thriller. Anything that seemed normal wasn’t. The relationships among the characters, main and supporting, were very surprising.

Abigail Mason had not heard from her father since she was a tiny girl. The fact that a government agency was now looking for him and thought that she would have any information was ludicrous to her. Her feigned indifference gave way to undaunted
This is a sequel to An Affair of Vengeance and starts a few days after the events of that book. It isn't necessary to read that book first to understand what is going on this in this book. In this book Peter(?) Mason is missing after everything that happened in An Affair of Vengeance and Riley and Abigail (Mason's daughter) are looking for him. Mason is the handler of Evangeline, the heroine in the previous book ...more

A good mix of romance and thriller. Abigail resents her father for deserting her and her mother but still wants to know why. In comes James Ryan, CIA to try and find her father who may have been abducted. The past meets the presents. Ryan's parents and Abigail's were once very close. The connection is made very smoothly and a wonderful romantic ending eventually comes about ...more

This was a great suspense and thriller book. When Abigail has not seen father in years and then she has the need to find him when he goes missing.

Great book and a must read! :)
