Love Another Day: Exclusive Excerpt

Gina Robinson

Love Another Day by Gina Robinson

LOVE IS A DANGEROUS GAME

CIA agent Tate Cox works alone. Everyone knows that. And when the object of his mission is to seduce a pretty RIOT agent for valuable technology, bringing his ex-wife Malene along seems like an especially disastrous idea. But no one bucks Agency orders, not even capable, confident Tate. Flirting with the enemy is in the job description—but falling for his sexy, sassy ex all over again is an unexpected complication...  

EVERYONE PLAYS TO WIN

After working for years on cover stories and logistics, Mal has longed for the chance to try her skills at fieldwork. But posing as “Professor” Tate Cox's graduate student girlfriend at the Cheltenham Festival of Science? Hardly a dream assignment. Yet when gorgeous Tate turns on the charm, Mal can't help wondering if she let the real thing go much too soon...

Get a sneak peek of Gina Robinson's Love Another Day (available February 25, 2014) with an exclusive excerpt from Chapters 2-4.

In this fifth book in Robinson's Agent Ex series, Malene Cox is the brains behind creating the “cover” part of undercover work. However, helping her ex-husband, Tate, seduce an enemy operative while out on her first assignment in the field, might be too much to ask, even for her.

Chapter 2

 Tate sat in Dulles International Airport, outside the security check, waiting for his ex-wife, Mal, to arrive. They were traveling together to Cheltenham, England, as mathematics professor Tate Stevens, Ph.D., and his trusty graduate student and research assistant sidekick, Mallie Green.

What the hell had Emmett been thinking assigning her as his cover-life artist for this mission? And insisting she go into the field with him—lunacy. First of all, Tate worked alone. He certainly didn’t need Mal, or any woman, for that matter, tagging along to scare Sophia off. It was going to be dicey enough convincing her he was falling in love with her so he could bring her in. He didn’t want to give her any reason to bolt.

Second, he and Mal got along now about as well as the Agency got along with RIOT—they generally wanted to kill each other. He blamed himself and Mal’s jealous nature. He’d thought when he married her that she understood that sometimes sleeping with other women was simply part of the job.

Third, while Mal was an excellent cover-life artist, she wasn’t a trained agent. Oh, she could shoot with the best of them, but a gun wasn’t her most efficient weapon. No, she wielded words like a pro, cutting as efficiently as if using a stiletto. He knew—he’d been the recipient of her knife’s edge too many times. He didn’t want her sharp tongue anywhere near Sophia.

License to Love: Exclusive Excerpt

Gina Robinson

License to Love by Gina Robinson

Rock Powers is one of the most successful magicians in Vegas for a reason—he creates illusions too spectacular to believe. But his former assistant, gorgeous Lani Silkwater, pulled off the greatest trick of all: disappearing into thin air the day after they were married. Two years later, Rock can’t resist a clue to Lani’s whereabouts—or the outlandish plan Lani and her mysterious boss propose, if it means a chance to win her back for good...  

Working as a magician’s assistant was one of Lani’s strangest undercover assignments, but she never imagined it would be so dangerous—to her heart. Leaving Rock was the right thing for both of them, but with a terrorist group closing in on Vegas, Rock’s talent with sleight of hand is imperative. To save them both, Lani must reveal secrets she’s kept for years, and one of them is how much she loves the sexy magician who stole her heart…

Get a sneak peek of Gina Robinson's License to Love (available August 27, 2013) with an exclusive excerpt of the Prologue and Chapters 1 & 2.

Prologue
A luxury hotel on the strip
Las Vegas, Nevada

Disappearing on her husband in the middle of an expensive Vegas magic act would be considered rude. By almost everyone. Especially given that undercover CIA agent Lani Silkwater was performing on stage with her husband of less than a day, premier illusionist Rock Powers. As his exceptionally able-bodied assistant.

She’d shown him just how able-bodied too many times to count, on stage and off. But particularly last night, on their wedding night, when she’d played contortionist just for him. The memory should have made her blush, if she’d been prone to blushing.

Author Gina Robinson on Femme Fatales—Misunderstood Heroine or Seductive Villain?

Today we're pleased—dangerously so!—to welcome author Gina Robinson to Heroes and Heartbreakers. Gina's next release, Live and Let Love, will be released December 24. Today Gina talks about some very dangerous women. Thanks, Gina!

(For an exclusive sneak peek at Live and Let Love, read an excerpt of Chapters 1-2!)

femme fa·tale 
n. pl. femmes fa·tales—a woman who is sexually attractive but cruel and dangerous to men who have a relationship with her
Macmillan Dictionary online
French: femme, woman + fatale, deadly

Ah, the femme fatale. The name says it all—a deadly woman. One who seduces men to their dooms, transfixes them, bewitches them. Kills them. There's something absolutely mesmerizing and fascinating about femme fatales. The embodiment of female power, they seem to have it all—charm, beauty, sensuality. And yet, somehow they're not satisfied until they've crossed the line into the dark side. Deep down, we'd all like to have a bit, just the good bits like seductive charm, of the femme fatale in us.

[Let's break out the inner femme fatale!...]

Chapter 1
Late September Cocacabana Beach Rio De Janeiro, Brazil

If a guy has to play dead, Rio’s the place to do it.

Jack Pierce sat beneath a bright red sun umbrella at an equally bright red bistro table outside a kiosk along the promenade at Copa. Listening to the waves of the At­lantic Ocean and the buzz of Brazilian music, he sipped his third caipirinha. Spring in Rio—string bikinis, bare- bottomed girls, sunshine, heat, and Cachaca. Another mission accomplished. Beto Bevilacqua, hated drug lord, dead. Yes, this was heaven on earth.

Author Gina Robinson on Spies and Sexpionage!

Diamonds Are Truly Forever by Gina RobinsonJust released, Gina Robinson’s Diamonds Are Truly Forever: An Agent Ex Novel is a sexy, sleuthy tale of sex with the ex (not to mention high espionage!). Today, Gina joins us to talk about the different types of spies, and shares some delicious pics, too! Thanks, Gina!

***

Only the wisest ruler can use spies; only the most benevolent and upright general can use spies, and only the most alert and observant person can get the truth using spies . . .

There is nowhere that spies cannot be used.

—Sun Tzu, The Art of War

The Chinese philosopher Sun Tzu identified the importance of using spies in his ancient military treatise, The Art of War, somewhere around 512 B.C. Sun Tzu identifies five kinds of spies:

  • Local spies—the enemy’s people
  • Internal spies—the enemy’s officials
  • Double spies—the enemy’s spies
  • Dead spies—spies used to spread misinformation, usually they’re fed bad intelligence by their own government
  • Living spies—agents who return with reports and valuable information

In romance fiction, I think we can all agree that the hero must be a living spy, for oh, so many delicious reasons, except, perhaps in a paranormal. In which case, an undead spy could be just the thing. In the tradition of Sun Tzu, and going one better, I’ve identified six types of spies. Five who are perfect romance heroes and one who’s possibly a very sexy villain. They’re just the kind of operatives any woman could find herself falling in love with, on or off a clandestine mission.

Diamonds Are Truly Forever: New Excerpt

Gina Robinson

Diamonds Are Truly Forever, Agents Ex #2, by Gina RobinsonStaci Fields loves her gorgeous husband—and that’s the honest truth. Unfortunately, her inability to lie is a major liability for the wife of a CIA agent. During a previous mission, her loose lips nearly got her husband killed. So now Staci’s filing for divorce to keep him out of danger—no matter how much her lips still crave his kiss…

Drew Fields knows that his wife doesn’t want to play the spy game anymore. But when he learns that Staci may be a pawn in her stepfather’s secret dealings with terrorists, he has no choice but to step back into her life. This time, the stakes are higher than ever. The closer he gets to Staci, the deadlier the odds. And the more he loves his ex, the more he has to lose…

Get a sneak peek of Gina Robinson’s Diamonds Are Truly Forever, Book 2 in the Agent Ex series (available May 22, 2012), with an excerpt of Chapter 1.

Chapter 1
Redmond, Washington

Drew Fields pulled to the curb and parked in front of his former home. He hated the bland, midsize sedan the Agency insisted he drive as part of his mind-numbingly dull, assigned cover life. A marketing director for a microbrew­ery? Really? At least there’d be free beer. He hoped.

That was the Central Intelligence Agency for you. The government sanitized everything. Even his official title—National Clandestine Services core collector. He was a spy, a secret agent. What kid wanted to grow up to be a core collector? Sounded more like nuclear reactor work.

The Spy Who Left Me: New Excerpt

Gina Robinson

The Spy Who Left Me by Gina Robinson

If there’s one thing that can ruin a vacation, it’s running into your ex. Just ask Treflee Miller. If she’d only known that her husband Ty would be here in Hawaii—muscular, sun-bronzed, and infuriatingly gorgeous—she would have brought the divorce papers for him to sign. But life is full of surprises when you’re married to a world-class spy…

Ty Miller can understand why his wife is tired of playing Mrs. James Bond. He’s never home, he’s always on a mission, and he’s usually surrounded by exotic informants. He has to admit that the perfect spy makes a pretty lousy husband. But for the sake of Ty’s security and Treflee’s safety, they can’t blow his cover. Not here. Not now. Not when his longing is so strong, her lips so tempting—and his enemies so close…

Get a sneak peek of Gina Robinson’s  The Spy Who Left Me  (available Nov. 1, 2011) with an excerpt of Chapters 1-2.

Chapter 1

There are two things a girl would really rather not experience on her Hawaiian vacation—the monthly curse and a run-in with her soon-to-be ex. For the first time since puberty, Treflee Miller had managed to dodge the first. She was staring at all six-foot-two, well-muscled, lying, spying, ran-out-on-her inches of the second as he hefted her cousin Carrie’s bags up the steps of the Big Auau Sugar Plantation’s lanai.
