Agent Seth Harrington has been sent undercover to discover who is behind the sale of research secrets to enemies of the United States. The problem? He's undercover as a college campus janitor, not exactly a glamorous role.

But it's perfect. He's able to monitor the situation easily since everyone ignores him. Everyone except Rachel Branson. She's not a suspect, particularly since she's the cousin of Omega's most renown siblings. But Seth can't get the shy romantic literature professor out of his head.

When the criminals decide to put Rachel in the center of the danger, Seth knows he'll do anything to solve the case. And risk everything to ensure the safety of the woman who has found her way into his heart.

I’d been hoping for Janie Crouch to continue her Primal Instinct series but it seems this book is the signal that it has been shelved altogether, when Seth Harrington from the first book got disappointingly shoved into the Omega books and made part of the Branson family instead.

‘Covert Intents’ is a short read but I think its length does it a disservice, because it was over just as it was getting better. I felt everything was rushed through, from the plot to the description and dialogue, and the result of this condensed read was the lack of connection and investment on my part to the characters as well as the developing plot.
