Imogen Dao is going to punch her way through this championship even if it means losing the men in her life.

Imogen's dream is about to come true. Only a handful of fights separate her from her first triumph in a mixed martial arts tournament. Sure, she's been sleeping with her trainer, Russ, on and off for the last couple of months, but it's nothing serious. He doesn't even like her. Everything is going swimmingly, until one night after a victory in the ring Imogen meets a man who offers a world of pleasure—if only she can agree to submit to him.

There's something about Imogen—her spirit, her compact, lethal weapon of a body—that just takes Jaime's breath away. He doesn't seem to care that she's rowdy and foul-mouthed, or that she will never fit into his world. He wants her.

As the scorching hot chemistry between Imogen and Jaime reaches boiling point, Russ becomes convinced that the tournament will be forfeit if his prize-fighter doesn't get her priorities in order. With the final coming up and Imogen's chances of victory on shaky ground, the choice between ambition and romance may not be the only one she is forced to make.

In the ring, she is a dominating mixed martial arts fighter seeking a championship. Out of the ring, she finds herself caught between two men.

With one man encouraging her dominance and the other man demanding her submission, Imogen Dao finds herself faced with a difficult choice. In FEINT AND MISDIRECTION by Helena Maeve, Imogen has a fight on her hands--both in and out of the ring.

To make this storyline work, the author gave Imogen a tough exterior, complete with a vocabulary fit for a sailor. Yet there is also a vulnerable side that shows as she bounces between Jaime and Russell.

Mixed together, the author delivers a set of characters who are somewhat rough around the edges. The end result is a gritty story about making choices. This action-packed read is hot in all the right spots.

I loved the unpredictable ending because I wasn't sure how Imogen would handle a fight for love. It turned out she had some special moves planned to ensure she would win the prize.
