Loyal operative Dez Luttino has graduated from the recruits of the Network, top of his classes and single-mindedly driven to succeed in his duty to his country. What he hadn’t counted on was mentoring his first operative—Nova Granger, once a head-strong, albeit gorgeous, hunting machine who didn’t seem to want to follow any rules except her own. As her team leader years ago, Dez had helped Nova tame her reckless nature and develop a team player attitude. She’s become one of the organization's most valuable operatives.
Little does Nova know that sexy Dez has been instructed to prepare her for an undercover mission that involves felling a ruthless criminal. While Dez has been instructed by his superiors to get close to Nova and encourage her to trust him implicitly, he soon realizes that he’s gone beyond duty and done the unthinkable by falling in love.

Awards & Honors: 2009 The Romance Studio’s CAPA Award nominee The Romance Studio’s Sweetheart Award finalist 5 books from Long and Short Reviews 5 stars from ReviewYourBook 5 angels from Fallen Angel Reviews 5 hearts from The Romance Studio 4 ½ delightful divas from Dark Divas Reviews 5 Hearts! "Karen Wiesner seems to keep getting better and better as this series continues. The subjects are more challenging, the operatives for the Network more sensitive. Rules about relationships within the covert agency were relaxed in Book 7 and the agents seem to be thriving. Ms. Wiesner is extremely sensitive to the plight of sexually abused children in this book. She crafts her story well, building the intimacy between Nova and Dez slowly and patiently as one would have to with the suffering Nova still really hasn't totally recovered from. The author and I seem to be in complete sync. The punishment for the next sex offender Nova deals with is a piece de resistance of ingenuity.... More > Gifted characters and the dating experience of Nova and Dez blended with the suspense of the mission scenario make this a novel I found hard to put down. It pulled me in on the first page and didn't let me go. I'm looking forward to Book 9 with high hopes from what I've seen so far." ~The Romance Studio http://theromancestudio.com 5 Books! "HARD TO HANDLE has the harshest topic and the most emotionally charged storyline yet of the Incognito Series to date. Ms. Wiesner is known for her dexterity, respectful yet hard-hitting storytelling, and it's alive and well in this installment. The romance between heals in ways very unique to the talents that Ms. Wiesner brings to each and every book she writes. Nova has guts and grit. Oh, she lets loose and I felt like I was watching a female 007. She rocks! As you expect from the Incognito Series, this book continues the tradition of fast-paced writing, logical plot development, strong characters with vulnerable hearts that fall in love despite a forbidding environment, dialogue that puts you right in the thick of things and bad guys that make you want to toss your cookies. HARD TO HANDLE will grip you, make you think, make you feel and, in the final touching scenes, make you believe that love really can conquer all." ~Xeranthemum for The Long And The Short Of It Reviews http://www.longandshortreviews.com< Less
