Aloha to HelenKay Dimon and FACING FIRE

HelenKay Dimon returns with another hot installment of her romantic suspense series featuring the fierce men of Alliance—a top-secret military security agency—and the only women who can tame them.

When his uncle is brutally murdered, Josiah King knows that business just got personal. His uncle’s ties to the Alliance can mean only one thing: Josiah and his black ops team are targets, along with everyone they love. Primed for vengeance, Josiah is determined to unravel the plot—until long-legged redhead Sutton Dahl becomes a dangerous distraction.

Sutton is very good at uncovering other people’s secrets—and protecting her own. When Josiah bursts into her life she’s torn between pushing him away and asking for his help. Mysterious, strong, and much too sexy, he’s a puzzle she longs to solve, and a temptation she can’t ignore.

Thrown together in the face of Alliance’s most lethal threat, Josiah and Sutton become unlikely partners, fighting for their lives even as the attraction between them flares into real passion. Torn between his team and the woman who means everything to him, Josiah will risk it all to save Sutton, even if that decision is his last. 

“The Bad Boys Undercover are back, and this third installment gives readers everything they love: high stakes, intense action and unexpectedly searing chemistry.”—RT Book Reviews on FACING FIRE

“Nail-biting suspense and steamy romance are the mainstays of this novel, as the protagonists must discover whether their attractions stems from deeper emotions.”—Publishers Weekly on FACING FIRE

“The latest high-adrenaline installment in Dimon’s (Playing Dirty, 2015) Bad Boys Undercover series delivers plenty of testosterone-fueled action and smoking-hot sexual chemistry between a rough, tough, alpha hero and a strong-willed heroine, who is more than his match. Give this one to fans of Suzanne Brockmann or Cherry Adair.”—Booklist

HelenKay Dimon spent the years before becoming a romance author as a . . . divorce attorney. Not the usual transition, she knows. Good news is she now writes full time and is much happier. She has sold over thirty novels, novellas and shorts to numerous publishers. Her nationally bestselling and award-winning books have been showcased in numerous venues.  Her books have twice been named “Red-Hot Reads” and excerpted in Cosmopolitan magazine. But if you ask her, she’ll tell you the best part of the job is never having to wear pantyhose again.

  1. No funny stories though as a teenager I worked at May Company and worked in the accessories dept. I was shocked at how much money women spent on fancy pantyhose.

  2. I hate wearing pantyhose. It's been years since I worn them.

  3. I haven't worn panty hose in such a long time I can't remember when the last time was. Those I do have, I use to tie my tomato plants to the support stakes.

  4. When I was nursing we had to wear pantyhose with our uniforms. HORRIBLE things!! I never wear them any more and no one can make me.

  5. If I wear anything its knee highs but havnt worn those in ages. I did wear pantyhose years ago. So don't miss them

  6. I haven't worn panty hose in many years and hope I never have to again! I don't even have occasion to wear knee high anymore. Yea me!!

  7. Oh many I hate nylons! I wore them a lot in my younger years but I hated them. I just wear long skirts now!

  8. I have a couple of pantyhose but I rarely wear them. It's either too hot or too cold to wear & I always feel old when I have them on :(

  9. I actually remember wearing nylons with a girdle or garter belt. Panty hose were easier but more expensive. We had lunch on old wooden tables and the runners were horrible. Eventually the pantyhose only ran up so if it was near to the top you could put nail polish on the runs. I used a lot of knee highs with pants. I can't remember the last time I had them on lol.

  10. Yes, but I'm embarrassed to say let me just say yes my pantyhose fall

  11. I'm so glad I haven't had to wear pantyhose in years! I remember wearing it in the summer to work, and then having to get in my car (which had been sitting in full sun all day) - and my car didn't have air conditioning! On the worst days I would peel that pantyhose off in the car!

  12. Don't wear then

  13. I used to have lovely ones back in the 70's. Some of them had various designs running up the sides....i.e. diamonds. I still have a pair of gold sparkly ones. I've no idea why I'm still hanging on to them!!
