    To some, he is an assassin. To others, he’s merely the man who gets the job done when no one else can. Now politico-military black-ops leader Roman Chernichenko has to take out the leak in an espionage plot that could destabilize all of Africa. Nothing will distract him from his mission. Not even the deliciously appealing blonde who’s awoken his deepest desires—and just happens to be his target...

    Tanya Ruston is a beautiful and brainy do-gooder—and now Roman is supposed to dispose of her when all he really wants to do is seduce her. Soon it’s clear Tanya’s no information agent—and now that his conscience has gotten the better of him, he and Tanya are on the run from the good guys and bad. If they’re going to make it out alive, Roman will have to act fast—and stop thinking about how he’s going to get his feisty new charge down the aisle...


    For my daughter, Isabelle and my new son Travis. You two were made for each other and I thank God with all my heart for bringing you together and blessing our family with both of you in it. You are both so very precious to me and I am grateful beyond measure to call you my children. May the light of your love shine until the end of your days and may it warm the children you will have and everyone else around you!

    With special thanks to Alicia Condon, my new editor and a woman destined to be called friend. This book would never have made it to production without you and I am truly grateful. Your compassion and understanding have blessed me beyond measure and I look forward to working with you on many more books. Thank you!

    “An exciting tale, CLOSE QUARTERS, the fifth novel in author Lucy Monroe’s GODDARD PROJECT series, is a fast-paced passionate romantic suspense that will grab your attention from the very beginning.”
    —Dottie at Romance Junkies

    “CLOSE QUARTERS was the very first Lucy Monroe book I read. I loved the characters. The hero and heroine are very well suited to each other. They spar in a way that shows their love for each other. Roman and Tanya are complete opposites.”
    Fresh Fiction

    “Lucy Monroe once again wrote a beautiful book full of action, friendship and love. I especially enjoyed that for her there are no boundaries when it comes to love. I adored the two love stories which are sexy, cute and just beautiful. Her books don’t need an over the top showdown to be thrilling and interesting.”
    About Happy Books

    “Overall, it was classic Lucy Monroe. There was a hero unwilling to let emotions rule him, a heroine who gave herself over to the hero without recognizing that she was in deeper than he was, and some lovely alpha-male groveling. The heat level was just right, the mystery of the conspiracy and treason was intriguing, and there was a very satisfying secondary romance to boot. A very solid 4/5 Stars.”
    The Romanceaholic

    “Close Quarters is compelling. The danger from the corrupt soldiers is vivid and you can feel the menacing stares leaping off the pages. Tanya and Roman dance around their feelings and desire for each other. Their chemistry is tantalizing and powerful. The secondary romance of Dr Fleur and the state department official is deeply moving. This book will touch your heart and stay in your thoughts long after you finish. Lucy Monroe's books are one of a kind and a must read. Enjoy.”
