Wild Card Undercover is a romantic suspense novel set in Miami.
Meg O’Hara is trapped working in a bar as a waitress because of a debt owed to crime boss Salazar Moreno. Moreno keeps all her wages and some of her tips, and he’d also like her to become more than just a waitress for some of his privileged customers.
In a different location, FBI agent Chris Shaunessy is gathering intel on Moreno when he first meets Meg. She’s trying to dodge an angry hotel manager who has caught her using his hotel facilities for free. Chris offers Meg an escape from the situation, pretending to be her boyfriend. But, later when Chris discovers where Meg works, he considers that she could be a useful informant.
A solid storyline with a good dose of suspense to equal the sexual tension that simmers between Meg and Chris. Ideal for a quick read.

All that glitters in Miami is not gold . . .
Lured in by a bad ex-boyfriend and the moonlight of Miami, Meg O’Hara is trapped in a nightmare situation, waiting tables for a crime boss and fearing for her life. When undercover FBI agent Christopher Shaunessy offers her a way out, she seizes it. Getting the goods on Salazar Moreno might not be easy, but she’ll do anything to be freed from her servitude and Moreno’s sexual advances, even if it means moving in with the charismatic agent.
Chris Shaunessy pretends to be Meg’s lover in order to keep her safe, but he steels his heart against further involvement. Passion has no place in the sordid world of organized crime. And yet, the closer they get to cracking the case, the stronger his feelings for the spirited waitress shine. It’s a dangerous game he’s playing, and taking Meg in his arms for real could prove a fatal misstep.
