Secrets of a Dangerous Woman
Black Swamp Mysteries Book # 3
By- P.M. Terrell
Irishman Dylan Maguire is back and in his first assignment with the CIA, he must interrogate recently captured Brenda Carnegie. But when she escapes again, it’s obvious that she’s had help from within the CIA’s own ranks. Psychic spy Vicki Boyd assists him in locating her again—but when he discovers Brenda’s true identity, he realizes his mission has just become very personal.
And here is an excerpt from 'Secrets of a Dangerous Woman' -
Brenda turned to fully face Dylan and he found himself unable to tear himself away from
her eyes. They were like liquid pools a man could drown in. She continued staring at him,
expectantly waiting for his response.
“You shouldn’t keep me here, Irish,” she said. “It’s only a matter of time before he finds me.
You’re harboring a fugitive. You’ve got to know it carries serious consequences.”
“The last place they’ll be lookin’ is right under their noses.”
“Is that so?” She sounded unconvinced.
“They think you’ve gone to Washington, you know.”
“Is that what they think?” She cocked her head.
“What would make them think that?”
“Now, why do you think?”
They stared at one another for a long moment. He knew his brows were knit, his eyes
narrowed, and he could feel his lips slightly turned down. But her face remained completely
expressionless. She stared at him with neither malice nor friendship and though he felt as though his soul could be sucked into those amber pools and lost there, he couldn’t read what the woman behind them intended to do.
“You know,” he said slowly, his eyes moving from her eyes to her lips and back, “you
wanted to be seen on that camera.”
“What camera?” Her lips turned up slightly and one eyebrow rose.
He felt the heat rising in his cheeks and his brows knit tighter.
“Oh,” she said, perhaps sensing his mood, “that camera.”
“You wanted us to be searchin’ for you northward. And all the while you knew you’d be here.” She didn’t respond and after a moment, he added, “And these little games you keep playin’ with me are beginnin’ to foul m’ good humor.”
And p.m. terrell was kind enough to share her idea of the perfect soundtrack to 'Secrets of a Dangerous Woman'
Funny you should ask!
When Secrets of a Dangerous Woman begins where Vicki’s Key left off, Vicki and Dylan have been separated and things hadn’t been left on a positive note between them. But Vicki is still passionately in love with the charming, handsome Irishman.
When she drives from her home to Fort Bragg’s CIA office, she thinks she’s turning on the radio - but finds that Dylan had left a CD in the car’s player of their favorite romantic songs.
She is reminded of him as she listens to:
“Just the Two of Us”, sung by Grover Washington, Jr. and Bill Withers. Now that she’s alone (but not for long) she remembers how close they were when it was “just the two of us”.
“Holding Out for a Hero” sung by Bonnie Tyler capture Vicki’s feelings toward Dylan - he is the hero she’s been yearning for.
A third song on the CD is “Superman” sung by John Ondrasik; both Dylan and Vicki find it isn’t easy being who they are, especially as Vicki’s CIA past catches up with her and Dylan’s mysterious past splits them apart.
When Vicki arrives home later that day, she puts the CD in her bedroom player. But of course, I couldn’t keep Vicki from her handsome Irishman for long - he appears that same night, and they remain together throughout the series.
