Special Agent Maximilian
by Mimi Barbour
Series: Undercover FBI, #3
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: August 25, 2015

Identical twins but different men – she loves both!

In this electrifying romantic suspense set in the steamy streets of New Orleans, Lieutenant Commander Nik Baudin, accidently meets up with an identical twin he never knew existed. When his brother Max goes missing, Nik assumes his identity as Special Agent Maximilian. This gives him access to FBI files making it easier to arrest the gangsters who attacked his brother and to stop their trafficking of underage girls. Being that Nik has specialized commando training, he’s the perfect man for the job - that’s if his PTSD doesn’t kick in and leave him cowering in a corner.

Special Agent Maya Barnes can’t believe it when she spots her partner, Max Foster, wandering along the French market without a care in the world. Since he’d been beaten and had gone missing weeks earlier, they all believed him dead. There’s only one problem… though this man might look exactly like the missing agent, she knows differently. In all the years they’ve worked together, she’s never wanted to have mind-blowing sex with her partner before.

A very exciting romantic suspense. 
Nik, a navy SEAL suffering from PTSD  has just connected with a brother he didn't know he had when that brother ( Max)  is beaten nearly to death.. Max is an FBI agent working on a people smuggling case.  Because his brother is laid up Nik steps into his shoes.
Maya is Max's partner , she has been trying to find out what happened to him. When he suddenly turns up, Maya knows he is not Max. She has never been remotely attracted to Max, but his twin she can't resist.
A very exciting, fast paced, all action  story, with plenty of sexual tension and humour.
I absolutely loved all the characters in this book. Maya is such an incredible, kick ass heroine.  Nik is vulnerable, but so strong, brave and a true hero. Juli /Julian /Jason is a character I definitely want to see more of. I must read more of this author's work.
