New York City – Present Day

Navy SEAL Wolf Tate is on a mission to destroy the man who has terrorized his family for years and killed his father. The one way to get to Caesar de Santis is to use his daughter, Olivia, who Wolf knows all too well from his time undercover at the de Santis mansion. In the middle of the night, Wolf kidnaps Olivia and whisks her to a hotel, where the simmering attraction between them turns sizzling hot. She doesn't believe him that her father is evil. Should Wolf tell her every deep, dark, and sordid thing Olivia's father has done? Doing so will expose Wolf's own secrets that he's kept hidden from even his adoptive brothers, Van and Lucas.

When Wolf started working for her father years ago, Olivia felt drawn to him, despite the aura of danger around him. She thinks her father has retired from his company, but Wolf informs her that Caesar is running a network of illegal gun sales that violates U.S. laws. She doesn't believe him, which causes distrust and she eventually escapes from Wolf. But that doesn't stop him from pursuing her again because he has to accomplish his mission: stop the gun sales and kill Caesar. If Wolf succeeds, will this destroy any chance of love between him and Olivia?

THE UNDERCOVER BILLIONAIRE is a tense, nonstop action adventure that will thrill readers. Add in the highly sensual interactions between Wolf and Olivia, and you'll find yourself unable to put the book down. Wolf is intense and driven by his hatred for Caesar. He cares for Olivia but has to figure out how to accomplish his job without destroying their friendship. Olivia has always lived under her father's roof, yet she's unaware of his illicit activities. While Olivia has always had a crush on Wolf, they've never even kissed. In THE UNDERCOVER BILLIONAIRE they finally kiss…and do much more.

The pent up sexual chemistry between Wolf and Olivia is finally unleashed in THE UNDERCOVER BILLIONAIRE, the third (and presumably final) tale in  The Tate Brothers  series. Each of the Tate brothers were left a letter addressed to them from their recently deceased adoptive father and their “mission” was the focus in each of their books: THE DANGEROUS BILLIONAIRE, THE WICKED BILLIONAIRE, and THE UNDERCOVER BILLIONAIRE. Caesar de Santis is at the center of the series, but it is Wolf who is tasked with the job of taking him out. Will he succeed? Can he and Olivia have a future together?

Jackie Ashenden deftly weaves a suspenseful tale that has a few twists and turns to keep readers guessing. Olivia is no damsel in distress as she battles both Wolf and her father to maintain control of her life. Can she come to grips with the news that Wolf wants to kill her father? While the ending of THE UNDERCOVER BILLIONAIRE seemed rather rushed, readers will get the happily-ever-after that they want for Wolf and Olivia.

An engaging read from beginning to end, don't miss THE UNDERCOVER BILLIONAIRE.
