For the Love Pete by Julia Harper (aka Elizabeth Hoyt)

Rating 5!!

Book Description: Dante Torelli is an undercover FBI agent assigned to protect a mob informant and his family. But when the informant's hiding place is blown, a baby girl is snatched by a ruthless hitman. Now, Dante must save the toddler, uncover the traitor in his department, evade various bad guys, and deal with the toddler's sexy aunt, all before the biggest mob trial in Chicago history, set to begin in just three days. When Zoe Adler's stepsister went into the witness protection program because of her sleazeball boyfriend, she wasn't supposed to tell anyone. Except the two sisters have always been close, and Zoe has been babysitting her niece, Pete, since her birth. What harm could it be to secretly get Zoe an apartment in the same building where the FBI is keeping the family under protection? So when someone inside the FBI turns and a hitman snatches Pete, Zoe is right there. During the shootout, she jumps into a sexy, uptight FBI agent's car and hangs on as he pursues the hitman. No matter what it takes, Zoe is going to bring her niece back.

Review: I loved this book. I loved that it was over the top. I loved both Dante and Zoe. This was a fast paced, sexy, fun story. There was also some laugh out loud scenes. I haven't read anything by Elizabeth Hoyt yet. I have her entire backlist in my TBR pile I just haven't gotten a chance to read them. I will definitely be pulling them out and moving them to the top. I know a lot of the blogs I follow love her historicals so I can't wait.

Hi Randi!

This cover art is so darn cute, I love it! And the story sounds great. I haven't read anything by Harper/Hoyt and I really should. She's from close to where I live, and so far, everything I've heard sounds great! Thanks for sharing!
