Hot Mess

Book 2, Hostile Operations Team - A Hostile Operations Team Novella

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


English professor Dr. Georgeanne Hayes has a problem. Her star pupil, an Army sergeant who works in a Top Secret government program, is missing—and someone tried to push her in front of a train last night.

Sam “Knight Rider” McKnight is used to looking out for Georgie. When they were kids, she was just his best friend’s baby sister. But Georgie’s not a baby anymore and Sam is getting some very male—and very dirty—thoughts about the girl he knows he can never have.

When someone threatens Georgie’s life again, Sam will do anything necessary to keep her safe. Even if it means spending the next few days locked up in a remote house on Maryland’s Eastern Shore with her.

Sam might be used to denying himself what he wants, but he’s about to find out that being cooped up with Georgie will push him to the limit. And maybe beyond.

Customer Reviews


Where do I start! Lynn Raye Harris has written another hit! This book has our heroine and hero reconnecting after a 12 year span of not seeing each other. Our heroine Georgie had a crush on our hero Sam when she was growing up and Sam is best friends with Georgie's brother Rick and thought he was not good enough for Georgie! When Georgie was 18 there was an encounter with Sam and after that, they lost touch with each other! Fast forward 12 years: Dr Georgeanne Hayes "Georgie Hayes" or "G" as our hero calls her, is now a English professor in Washington D.C.. Sam "Knight Rider" McKnight our hero is a total ALPHA male and a dedicated military member who belongs to a top secret division H.O.T.(Hostile Operations Team) of the military. When a student of Georgies fails to showup for class for a few days, Georgie makes calls to why he hasn't been there, that's when her problems starts. About that same time Sam finds out from Georgie's brother Rick that "G" is living in D.C and Rick asks Sam to check on her. This gets Sam involved with what is going on.
Want to find out what happens next, read the book you will not be disappointed! This book is filled with HOT(no pun intended) intimate encounters between Georgie and Sam, mystery, suspence and action.
A very good read, Lynn Raye Harris is one talented author, looking forward to more books dealing with the Hostile Operation Team!
I received an ARC in exchange for a honest review.

Dynamite Read

What can I say " I LOVE ME SOME H.O.T MEN" (Hostile Operation Teams). From the beginning you realize the Sam feels as if he's not good enough which is a outright lie. Sam is character who is devoted and fights for the right of the underdog and that's what I call Courage. Georgeanna is tough, take no prisoner heroine with a heart of gold. The moment that Sam and Georgie was in the same room you felt the heat between them and couldn't wait to see what journey they embark on. There was tender moments and laugh out loud moments that capture your heart and drew you in. There wasn't nothing not to like about the book it just made me wonder how to become a member of the team. Kudos to you Lynn you have done it again!!!!!

Great series
