Conceit by Alana Albertson Publication Date: December 7, 2014 Genres: Action / Adventure, Contemporary, Romance, Suspense, Thriller
I don’t recognize the damaged woman in the mirror staring back at me—platinum blond hair, blood-red lips and nails, curves laced up in the finest lingerie. I have transformed into a bombshell to exonerate my brother, former United States Navy SEAL Joaquín Cruz. He’s been languishing in a jail cell for the past six months, convicted of a murder he didn’t commit, his honorable career as a SEAL ruined, his spirit crushed.
I’ve gone undercover as a stripper to entertain the men of SEAL Team Seven—I’ve given up my acting career, my dreams, my home, everything to free Joaquín and learn the truth. But I didn’t count on having to conceal my identity from my ex-boyfriend, Navy SEAL Grant Carrion. Instead, the man I lost my virginity to is caught up in an endless web of sins and temptations, unable to cope with his demons. As I strip down to my thong and dance for Grant, I know that every humiliating moment will be worth my sacrifice—if only I can give my brother back his life. And just maybe, find a way back to Grant’s heart.
