The Secret Service’s number one cyber asset, Special Agent Ben Segar, has a reputation for playing it straight… until a top-secret assignment has him cozying up to an enigmatic beauty from his past – his runaway prom date. Now, he’s willing to break a few rules to even the score, including unmasking a potential traitor, which would make his revenge even sweeter.
Photographer Quinn Darby was born into the spy game. When her life is threatened, she turns to the one man she knows she can trust, but Ben is no longer the mild-mannered lab partner she once loved. Instead, he’s a full-grown, alpha-man whose appeal is even more irresistible. She’s vowed to never again deceive him, but to protect him, she must keep her double life a secret.
Soon, Quinn and Ben are embroiled in a cat-and-mouse game with the enemy – and each other. As the case intensifies, so does the heat between them. Will the greatest casualties be their hearts?
Title: Between Love and Honor

Author: Tracy Solheim
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Published: March 26, 2020
Publisher: Tule Publishing
My Rating: 4.5 stars
I’ve been waiting for Ben’s story throughout this series, and Between Love and Honor delivered on all my wishes and so much more. This review is going to be brief for there really isn’t much that I feel can safely be shared without giving away spoilers, so most of what you really need to know can be found in the cover description.
Still, that doesn’t really capture the sparks that fly between Quinn and Ben on so many levels. Yes, they are keeping secrets from each other – mostly to protect the other, but some because of their specific careers. Watching them navigate the danger surrounding them, following leads all the while trying to deny the attraction that is burning between them was a fascinating journey full of banter, sizzle, danger, and a very satisfying conclusion. Along the way there are twists and turns, some things I never saw coming – and that is exactly how I like my Romantic Suspense stories.
You “could” read Between Love and Honor on its own, but you’ll get far more if you’ve followed the series or intend to go back to the beginning because all the stories in the Men of the Secret Service series are so well worth your time. I had a blast with Ben and Quinn – I’d definitely recommend this story and entire series to any reader who loves a good Romantic Suspense novel.
