ATF Special Agent Eric Miller and his explosives detecting K-9, Tiger, pull over a truck, the contents of which are explosive. Literally. More shocking, the driver is the kid brother of a woman he left behind. One who still haunts his days and his nights.
They’d never so much as kissed, but Tess McTavish never forgot the handsome, dangerous agent who vanished in a shroud of mystery. Now the last thing she needs is an ATF agent with his own agenda. Doesn’t matter that Tess and her brother are innocent. If Eric learns the truth of their past, they’ll never be free.
Eric’s drive for revenge against the man who targeted him and his colleagues in a deadly explosion still burns hot inside him. Another bomb is about to be detonated and he’s sure there’s a connection between that man…and Tess’s family. But Eric and Tiger will do everything they can to protect the woman he’s falling for from what’s coming...
Dark ‘N’ Deadly by Tee O’Fallon is the third standalone novel in the Federal K-9 series. A young brother in trouble, a dog, and a sexy ATF agent have Tess McTavish almost believing in the happily ever-after.
Wow, what an intense ride with plenty of action, laughs, heat, and more. Dark ‘N’ Deadly proved to be an addictive romantic suspense, and I devoured it. Somehow, I missed book two but I will have plans to grab it. These really are standalone as each book deals with an agent in the K-9 unit and delivers an HEA.
ATF Special Agent Eric Miller and his explosives detecting K-9, Tiger pull over a truck and the driver turns out to be a kid. Tess McTavish’s kid brother to be exact. A woman he met previously and one he often thinks about. The kid is carry a truck full of explosives and his team suspect an anti-government group is involved.
Tess hasn’t seen her baby brother in ten years, not since she left before her eighteenth birthday. This was intense, not just from a sizzling chemistry perspective because oh man these two had sizzle, but Tess and her brother have secrets and the people they are hiding from are deadly.
O’Fallon did an excellent job of building the suspense for the case while allowing us to get to know the characters, their backstories and giving the reader a chance to have genuine feelings for them. I was rooting for Tess and her brother and I wanted Eric to open up and take a chance too.
Thanks to the suspense angle, the secrets and drama were kept low and honestly everything felt genuine from reasons to reactions. The case wrapped up nicely and we were treated to a sneak peek of the next book, and a nice epilogue.
Fans of romantic suspense, law enforcement and K-9 unit will want to grab Dark ‘N’ Deadly. The previous books Lock ‘N’ Load and Armed ‘N’ Ready are available in eBook, Audio and print formats.

Books with dogs on the cover always catch my eye. This one looks great. I’ve been reading more romantic suspense series. I’m going to have to add this one to my list. Wonderful review.
Whew *fans self* That cover and the story sounds fantastic. An in aprticular, I am now so curious about the secrets the siblings are hiding. I also like that you can read these out of order — these days it’s always good to know the different series that you can just jump in to.
Like seeing that high rating. I also appreciate that this is a stand alone series. Plus it has dogs. Yeah!
Even though you read it out of order, I am glad it didn’t deter you from being able to enjoy this read either which way. I love when everything feels genuine and the reactions were believable as well 🙂

I’ve wanted to read a K-9/cop trope for a while now, you made me want to pick one up soon! Great review.
Oh wow that sounds so good. Thanks for the great review.
I’m enjoying this series too. I didn’t read your review too closely because I am getting it to review on audio. I’m happy to see it is a good one though.
