What are you doing here?

Ginny Bryson cannot believe her eyes. What on earth is her former boyfriend Rick Gray, now going by the name of Duke Black, doing here? He lied to her once - it seems like he's still lying. Yet Rick only asks for a chance to start over. His tenderness to her & his gentleness to her mentally challenged sister softens her heart. But can she truly trust him?

As an undercover cop, Rick Gray couldn't tell Ginny the truth about why a gang member had approached them & spoken to Rick with easy camaraderie. She figured he was a fellow gang member & broke up with him on the spot. He had let her, because if the gang ever found out he was a cop, she would be a target, & he couldn't do that to her. But he never stopped loving her.

Now, here he is working for her uncle, again undercover, this time trying to prove her uncle's guilt in the murder of Rick's partner. Again, he can't tell her the truth - not that she would believe him anyway. Only this time his silence can't protect her, because someone is targeting her, wanting her to pay the price for her uncle's crimes. Somehow, Rick is going to protect her...& at the same time figure out how to not get his cover blown.

A break-in, threats, arson, sabotage, revenge, murder, a handsome undercover cop...& rekindled love - a winning suspense & faith filled story from Sandra Orchard. I'm looking forward to reading the rest in the series.

Rick Gray gave up the love of his life 15 months ago when he didn't dare correct Ginny Bryson's misconception that he was a gang member instead of an undercover cop on assignment. He walked away, hurting, because the last thing he wanted to do was draw the gang's attention to a vulnerable, unsuspecting woman: vulnerable because of her connection to him.

Now posing as a construction foreman to gain evidence of the boss's previous insurance frauds, Rick finds that Ginny, the boss's niece, has been hired as the PR person on the current project, a group home for people with special needs. One of the new home's residents will be Ginny's younger sister.

Rick doesn't dare tip Ginny off as to the type of man he suspects her uncle is. In Rick's desire-drive-to protect her, he once again has to pretend to be someone he isn't. When Ginny unwittingly talks about how she could never marry a cop, he believes that the real Rick would never have a chance with her anyway.

But Ginny and her sister are in more danger than Rick at first suspected, and all the lies-or truths-in the world may not be enough to save them when trouble comes calling.

Deep Cover is the debut novel of Sandra Orchard, first in a series of undercover cop stories for Love Inspired Suspense, set in the Niagara, Ontario, Canada, area. Orchard did a great job with a believable story line and intertwining theme threads in the exploration of the morals of deception.

In Deep Cover Sandra Orchard creates a wonderful balance of suspense and romance. Deep Cover had me teetering on the edge of my bed not only to discover who kept sabotaging the group home development, but how in the world would Ginny and Rick overcome the lies and hurt they'd caused each other. This is a page turner from beginning to end. Even for slow readers like me, you'll finish it in one sitting!

The supporting cast in Deep Cover is not to be forgotten, either. Ginny's relapsing mother and handicapped sister, Lori, play an integral role in revealing who Ginny and Rick are to the core in Deep Cover. These interesting characters don't outshine Rick and Ginny in the least, but their challenges sure make for telling scenes. There are no empty characters in this book, and no empty scenes, Orchard has mastered it all. I'll be watching for the release of her future novels. They won't come soon enough for me!

A good romantic suspense Nov. 2 2011
By Love 2 Read Novels - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Rick Gray is an undercover cop. Maintaining his cover has meant allowing the woman he loves to think the worst of him, then allowing her to walk away for her own protection. Ginny Bryson has a hard time with trust. She takes a job working as a PR person for her uncle. Rick hires on with Ginny's uncle to gather evidence against him because he was responsible for setting the fire that killed his partner and friend. Imagine Ginny's surprise when she shows up on the job site and sees Rick. Only now he's Duke. Rick finally convinces her that he's there for a fresh start but things continue to come up that make her think Rick hasn't really changed at all. Will he be able to protect Ginny, take down her uncle and tell her who he really is before it's too late?

This was a story that I enjoyed and certainly kept me turning pages. It had a some unexpected twists and turns which is always fun. Rick was a really great hero. Your heart really went out to him. It caused me to think about the real-life undercover cops who probably deal with the same type issues. It's gotta be tough. Ginny kinda bugged me a little bit with her attitude. I suppose that in her position I might feel the same way but it just seemed she always thought the worst of Rick even though 'what she thought he was' and 'how he behaved' were polar opposites. There were times when it was hard for me to understand why Rick would want to be with someone who thought so little of him. But that makes for good drama. I really liked the supporting characters, Kim and Zach. They added an extra spark to the story. Sandra Orchard is a new author to me but I look forward to reading her future works. Deep Cover is book one in the Undercover Cops Series. A thank you goes to Harlequin who provided this complimentary copy for my review through Netgalley.

Boring book Oct. 24 2012
By Texas bookworm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I hardly ever pick up a book that I don't read all the way through but I have to admit, this one I had to make myself finish. It was very disappointing and I definitely do not recommend it.

Very good but a bit disappointing towards the end. Nov. 26 2012
By Melody Cox - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I thought this was a good book but towards the end I became frustrated and a bit disenchanted. The hero of this book, Rick Gray, made some very unprofessional mistakes that I don't think a seasoned undercover cop would have made. His love, Ginny, just did not "get it" when people told her that things are sometimes not what they seem and she turned on Rick every chance she got as he tried to protect her and bring the case to a head. It took her down a peg or two in my humble opinion. So did Rick's letting trouble over take him by foolish mistakes. Again, mistakes he should not have made.

Other than those points I thought the book was just "good".

Fighting for Justice April 5 2012
By L. Wagner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Rick Gray, aka Duke Black, is an undercover cop trying to bring down the man responsible for his partner's fiery death. Little does he know that he will run into his old girlfriend in the process.

Ginny Bryson is the niece of Emile Laud, the man Duke is trying to catch and bring to justice, and Rick's old girlfriend that he left fifteen months ago because he thought he needed to protect her. Little did he know the pain he caused when he walked out of her life so abruptly.

In Deep Cover, by Sandra Orchard, we are thrust into the dangers and mysteries of the undercover world of a cop and tossed into the middle of the love/hate relationship between Rick and Ginny. Despite all of Rick's efforts to protect Ginny, she becomes caught up in the schemes of her uncle and is under suspicion of the police department.

Sandra's story definitely intrigues you throughout the numerous plots, twists and dangers in the investigation. About the time you think you have the perpetrator identified, she tosses in another twist that throws you off-kilter. From the first page to the last, the action and suspense is palpable. Since I love the world of undercover cops, I was thoroughly engrossed in the details and circumstances.

Adding the romantic tension between Ginny and Rick was a fabulous way to not only expand the depth of the story, it brought out the true feelings and apprehensions of a touch-and-go romance. Does Rick's involvement with Ginny blind him from seeing the necessary evidence in proper perspective? Sandra handles this aspect with the sensitivity of undercover operatives.

I enjoyed the characters of Ginny and Rick. Their relationship was so sensitive and yet abruptly harsh. Their faith is put to the test. Lori, Ginny's sister, will capture your heart.

For a good romance-inspired suspense, be sure to pick up Sandra's book!

Great storytelling Dec 16 2011
By Jo Charbonneau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Deep Cover is a wonderful mix of romance and suspense. Ginny and Rick are fabulous, well-rounded characters who have to overcome past secrets and betrayals to find their way to each other while working hard to stay several steps ahead of the villian in the book! From the lead characters to the supporting ones, I loved every moment I spent with this book. It kept me on the edge of my seat and wanting more.
