    Every one of the five stars I'm rating are beyond earned and deserved. This book would also stand alone, but knowing the series and the fascinating characters is more fulfilling/enriching to me. Non-stop action...what a sublime read!!!

    As usual, Ms. Brennan delivers a heart pounding, thrilling & fascinating novel.

    Cheers!

    This is the current Lucy Kincaid novel by NYT best-selling author Allison Brennan. Lucy has graduated from the FBI Academy at Quantico. She's three months into her probationary period at her first duty station, San Antonio, Texas. Her significant other, Sean Rogan, has quit the family business, RCK Investigations, to free-lance on his own to be with Luce. Enter an obsessed DEA agent, a thirteen-year-old boy, bad cops, and an up-and-coming Mexican drug cartel and you have a fiery mix of action, suspense, and emotion. Lucy has grown up. She's coming into her own as an FBI agent and woman. With Lucy, I figure the career will always take the driver's seat. Sean is almost too good to be true but he loves her like damn and whoah, and she returns that love. They're perfect for each other. They aren't quite Eve and Roarke but...yeah. *happy face*

    Allison has the ability to create memorable characters and stories that while the books are standalone, there is a continuing thread that runs through them all--family. This book is no different. References are made to siblings and events from previous books. Don't worry, a reader doesn't need to be familiar but that reader would sure be missing out on some great fiction if they don't go back and read them all.

    Of special note to me, if the brief look at Kane Rogan, Sean's older brother who has been a "ghost" in previous books. He made one brief appearance but for the most part, he's a special operator working in Mexico, and Central and South America, doing protection/recover jobs for RCK and US Government. I'm a HUGE Kane fangirl and if he doesn't get his own story soon, Allison and I are going to have words!

    Frankly, if you are a fan of suspense with some romance and you haven't read Allison? Why the hell not!!! Go. Read this book. Then go read her backlist.

    This latest book in the Lucy Kincaid series was just excellent - had everything in it that I like - murder, suspense, and a fluid story.

    Lucy is now an FBI agent - a rookie, but still an FBI agent and on her first big case with colleagues that are both believing in her and skeptical of her. The only one the truly trusts her is Sean "Little Rogan" :)

    The story revolves around drug smuggling, gun smuggling, and using young boys as mules.

    2 thumbs up and 5 stars - thank you Allison Brennan for this se

    You know an author is at the tippity top of her game when you fear for every character in the book and chew your nails in anticipation of the outcome. And the top is where Allison Brennan is with the new installment in the Lucy Kincaid series, Dead Heat. Lucy's still a newbie with the FBI, but her past, and her expertise, gets her a chip in the big game when Operation Heatwave is put into play. As a member of a multi-jurisdiction task force, she knows she needs to impress her teammates, and stick to the rules of the game. But there are kids being kidnapped and forced into slave labor by drug runners. And the punishment is torture - and death - if they mess up. While tracking down the cartel leaders, Lucy's drive to right injustice, and to thwart the kidnapper killers, leads her off the straight and narrow and into the shadows where she enlists the aid of her lover, Seth Rogan, including one of his brother's whose own darkness has kept him apart from his brother, Seth, and the rest of his family. But their targets aren't the only bad guys and they're not the ones running the show. That's a bad guy of a different color: Black. When the trio and their operatives go off the grid, leaving her FBI partner twisting in the wind, will he cover for her? Will the operation against formidable odds lead to tragedy for the Rogan and Kincaid families? Will Lucy lose her hard-won FBI badge because she can't forget her own horrific tragedy? Will she lose her life trying to save other children from her fate? The action is spine-chilling and thrilling. The complex plotting weaves together masterfully, and the cast of characters is marvelously nuanced, from the smallest little player to the most ruthless mastermind. Lucy's past is again explored and her emotional confrontation with a victim, who will have to overcome horrors of his own is poignant and wrenching. Her relationship with Seth Rogan continues to unfold in all it's romantic complexity. And Lucy's law enforcement skills, from her forensic knowledge to her firearms skills, not to mention her nerve and courage, are put to the test. Dead Heat is a rich, gutsy novel that grabbed me by the throat and kept me reading through all the dramatic ups and downs, and all of the emotionally powerful moments and as new facets of all the characters were revealed. More Lucy, Please, Ms. Brennan! One day red-hot read. Don't let this book, or the Kincaid series, pass you by!

    Book #8 and Lucy Kincaid is a full fledged FBI agent and she doesn't disappoint. I loved watching her use all her talents from interviewing kids to picking (many) locks. This book was a pleasure to read. Allison Brennan has grown as an author. Good stuff.

    In this series, Lucy Kincaid has been working toward becoming an FBI agent and she has finally made it. She is assigned to the San Antonio's violent crimes unit. Her team starts off by serving warrants to offenders and mushrooms into drug trafficking, gun running, and child corruption/slavery.

    I like the Kincaid/Rogan books. I admire the adversity Lucy has overcome to be the strong woman she is today. I really enjoyed this book.

    Dead Heat, the latest addition and 8th book in Allison Brennan’s Lucy Kincaid Series is a well-written and explosive thriller about Lucy Kincaid’s new life as a FBI rookie agent in San Antonio.

    With each book, I have grown to like Lucy more and more and I enjoy seeing her development as she struggles with her inner demons and trying to deal with the horrific experience she went through with a serial rapist/killer.

    Dead Heat, the latest addition and 8th book in Allison Brennan’s Lucy Kincaid Series is a well-written and explosive thriller about Lucy Kincaid’s new life as a FBI rookie agent in San Antonio.

    With each book, I have grown to like Lucy more and more and I enjoy seeing her development as she struggles with her inner demons and trying to deal with the horrific experience she went through with a serial rapist/killer.

    The story begins with being assigned to the Violent Crimes Unit in San Antonio to work on a case that seems to be quite straightforward but in fact turns out to be a lot more complicated and complex ….

    Dedicated to bringing down the evil that exists, she will put her career and life in jeopardy to see justice is meted out to the drug and gun cartels that are also dealing with child human trafficking.

    With the help of Sean Rogan and his brother Kane, they will travel to Mexico, facing danger and betrayals and confronting the most horrific and evil monsters ever.

    Lucy Kincaid is a really interesting character. Her grit and courage and how she has dealt with her fears and insecurities is what makes her such an extraordinary heroine. How many people would have been able to remain sane and persevere in taking control of their lives after experiencing what she did when she was 18? Not too many!! But she has even when things feel shaky in her life.

    And having Sean Rogan coming into her life was the most important thing that could have happened to her.

    He has been the catalyst in her overcoming the dark and scary moments in her life. He’s caring, sensitive, loving and loyal….I absolutely love this character. Alpha-male with softness and a heart!!! And sexy too!!!

    A well-written and fast-paced storyline that keeps you turning the pages.

    I can really recommend this series.

    I don't usually like books about drug cartels but this one provided just enough information but didn't go over the line into the disgusting details I usually see from this topic.

    I really, really liked Michael and little Bella was precious. I loved that she saved Michael and then Michael saved her. So cute and life altering for both.

    Lucy Kincaid, Sean Rogan and even Kane Rogan came together to find Michael and save Bella as well as the captured DEA agent.

    A well-put together mystery with plenty

    Book 8 in the Lucy Kincaid series was full of tension and suspense. This series just seems to get better with each book, I think because we readers have been along for every step of the way of Lucy's journey from victim to avenger of other victims. We care about Lucy's developing career and her personal relationships with Sean and her family and, now too, her co-workers.

    I started this as my secondary book that I only read a few pages from each day, thus the time frame it took me to complete it.

    It's the first time that we have encountered Sean's mercenary brother Kane in these books and he's even more taciturn than Lucy's brother Jack. But he does make a strong impression! Hopefully we get to see more of him in the coming books. I also liked how Kane's team keep calling Sean the little Rogan. So funny!
