Book Tour — Beyond the Code of Conduct by K.M. Daughters


Beyond the Code of Conduct

by K. M. Daughters

Here’s another addition to my summer blog tours for Pump Up Book Promotion Tours.  Beyond the Code of Conduct by K. M. Daughters came out in paperback in April, 2009.    Correction: This book is written by a sister/sister team.  I would definitely feel more comfortable writing the sexy scenes with a sister (I think, as I’m an only child). But, the two ladies got the job done, and did it well.

FBI Agency Brass and Sullivan family connections force Special Agent Bobbie Leighton into an undercover operation with inactive Homicide Detective Joe Sullivan.  Posing as a wealthy Texas cattleman and his arm-candy wife the two are assigned to infiltrates Bradley Sterling’s black-market operation.  Suspected of baby -trafficking, Sterling may be connected with Jimmy Sullivan’s murder.  How do Bobbie and Joe adhere to their professional code of conduct living under the same roof?  Can they forget their personal history, ignore their volatile feelings for each other and ensnare their target when they might be next on Sterling’s victims list?

This short novel, at 169 pages, is a quick read, fun read.  There is definitely lots of sexual tension between the characters that is acted upon in a few sexy scenes.  The authors slowly unfold the backstory between the two main characters which adds to the tension between the couple for the reader.  Hints were given about their previous relationship and it’s end without giving the full story until later.  I kept wondering, “what’s with these two?”  Of course, the authors  let us know in bits and pieces until it all makes sense.

The thriller part of the book seemed secondary to the romance.  It was more about how the romance was affected by the case rather than the actual case.   Nevertheless, the baby-trafficking bad guy did add more suspense into the book.

Overall, I would say this is a light, fun read for the beach season!

Thanks, K.M. Daughters, for the authographed book and chance to read your novel.

  1. A little correction KM Daughters is a sister writing team not a mother and daughter writing team

  2. Thank you for posting the correction. Yes, we’re sisters who write together – lots of fun – apparently it carries over to our stories in general. Thank you for reviewing Beyond The Code of Conduct. You may want to try Book 1 – Against Doctors Orders, too. 🙂 Book 3 Capturing Karma coming soon from our wonderful publisher The Wild Rose Press. You’re welcome for the book. Blessings.

  3. That cover reminds me of those great gothic stories by Barbara Michaels for some reason. So I’d definitely expect lots of suspense!

    Thank you for the info on the book sounds like a fun summer read.
