This is just the beginning.

Fate keeps throwing them together and Austin's famous control slips. It becomes nuclear hot, but like anything nuclear something is going to blow. My chest ached and I wanted to make it better. Megan Erickson is a master at writing. She knows how to draw on human emotion. The way she makes her characters interact feel so real. I felt like a friend was in pain and I needed to make her feel better. It felt like a friend was confused and he needed advice. I love when an author can draw me so far into a story I almost for get where I am. And this book was so hot between these two it needs a warning label. Austin is my dream man. He is smart, sexy, naughty, and I did mention smart! This is a great read for anyone wanting a hot spicy romance.

Captain Jeremy Malone and the rest of Delta Squad have the senator’s order: find the mystery woman who killed my son. But to Jeremy, she’s no mystery.

button excerpt 

FOR SHADOW OF DOUBT
Michelle paced the length of the room for the thousandth time. There were exactly eighteen steps from the bathroom door to the sad excuse of a table. Not the biggest rooms here at the OTE. A long moan drifted through the left wall followed by a slam, then rhythmic banging. “Oh, God. Yes,” a woman cried. “Give it to me, daddy.” Whomp. Whomp. Whomp. The cheap picture over the bed rattled with “daddy’s” frantic pace. Michelle rolled her eyes to the ceiling. “Really?” she asked the stained tiles. As if her situation wasn’t bad enough, she now had to listen to a bad porno. She glanced at the clock. 5:22 p.m. Her fingertips felt cold. She went to rub her hands together only to find her palms had a thin layer of sweat. How messed up was that? Darn nerves. For years she had fantasized about this moment. So many versions ranging from innocent to completely far-fetched had captivated her dreams. Only Fate would deliver the version where she was holed up in a seedy motel with Big Daddy providing the sleazy soundtrack. “Yes! Right there! Harder!” She tuned out the “Oh-Gods,” and the “That’s-the-spots” and replayed her favorite fantasy. The one where Captain Jeremy Malone sought her out only to find out she had been given a new identity and placed in Witness Protection. Devastated by the government’s unwillingness to tell him where she had been relocated, he made it his personal mission to find her. Though it took years, he finally discovered she became a park ranger in Indianapolis. He immediately requested leave from the military and showed up at her apartment door. She laughed at her foolish daydreams. Even if the man had hunted her down, then what? Her track record since Colombia had been Michelle, zero; Disaster, every time. The looks of disgust on her partners’ faces when they saw her body usually killed whatever passion she had been able to muster through the fear and memories. Only one man had seen beyond carnage and made her feel as if it would be okay. A hoarse shout bled through the thin wall followed by a lot of groaning. Hopefully that signaled the end of “daddy’s” session. Had she done the right thing calling Cappy? How long had he been in Indianapolis? God, had she been this close to him all this time? What if he’s seen the news? Would he call the police, FBI, Army to tip them off? She started to panic. Oh no. What had she done? Knock. Knock. Knock. Michelle jumped at the sound on her door. The blood drained from her face and her heart pounded against her ribcage. No way in this short span of time could it be another drunk with the wrong room. Which meant . . . He’s here. All her insecurities rushed through her brain as she stared at the door. Everything from her thunder-thighs to her lack of makeup and hungover status swamped her. “Michelle?” a muffled, deep male voice called on the other side. She’d know that intonation anywhere. It slid over her, tightening the knot in her stomach. She rubbed the dancing area and snagged on a button. Jerking her head down, she started cussing. She still had on the ugliest uniform ever. Not one ounce of sexiness could be wrung from the drab olive and gray clothing. Sweat pooled under her arms, not helping her confidence and— Wait, what was that? She squinted and dabbed a spot on her shirt. Great. She had on the most god-awful stained uniform ever. This was so far from her fantasy she could only hang her head. About par for the last twenty-four hours. Knock. Knock. “Michelle,” Captain Jeremy Malone said again. “It’s safe to open the door.” No one shouted “POLICE” or “FBI.” That was a good sign, wasn’t it? Didn’t they have to identify themselves first before entering? That meant he was alone, right? She threw her shoulders back and strode across the room. Closing her eyes, she took a deep breath and opened the thin wood. Holy Cheesus on wheat toast. How could she not recall how HUGE he was? And that was saying something, since she was considered tall. But he had to be at least a half a foot over her head. Not only tall, but ripped with muscles . . . Like no-way-could-this-exist-in-real-life muscles sprouted beneath a tight T-shirt. Since he had worn a helmet the last time they met, she had never gotten to see he had dark brown hair, buzzed in a military crew-cut. His stance was all business; exuding strength and power and don’t-mess-with-me-cause-I-know-eighty-ways-to-kill-you. But one feature commanded her attention—the same one haunting her for years. His eyes. Those wonderfully expressive deep coffee-colored eyes. “Cappy.” She shuddered. After so many years of longing, she was finally staring into their depths . . . and he was staring right back.





Shadow Of Doubt is book 2 in P.A. DePaul's SBG series. I loved the first one and was seriously looking forward to this one. I expected it to be just as good, maybe a little better than Exchange of Fire (book 1) but it knocked it out of the water! This book blew me away! The setting, plot, and characters are all unique. Shadow Of Doubt can be enjoyed as a standalone novel, but reading
Exchange of Fire will enhance your reading enjoyment. You will get a better sense of camaraderie between the group members and what they went through to make them the way they are.

The book begins 6 years in the past with Michelle and the rest of her lab group taking an excursion into the jungle for a college class to collect samples. This went horribly wrong when gunmen showed up kidnapping Michelle. Jeremy Malone a C.O. in the Green Berets rescued Michelle from her hell and even as she dubs him Cappy he laid a silent claim to her that he never thought he would fulfill. He put her on the chopper and promised her if she ever needed him he would come running no questions asked.

Move on into the present, Cappy is no longer a Beret and considered a dead man and is the CO of the Black Ops Delta Squad for Sweet Briar Group and Michelle is "dead" and placed in Witness Protection. Neither forgot the other, but when Michelle is framed for a murder and calls Cappy the connection felt during rescue is still there and becomes stronger every moment they are together. They have to fight the past and present to have a possible future.


So many players after Cappy and Michelle and in the background a few romantic possibilities are in the making! I am so hooked on this series. The writing is realistic and engrossing. The action keeps me on the edge, just waiting to see where it is going to lead me next. Even serious moments that are made hilarious and you can not help but laugh. This series is a must read, you will not be disappointed. I highly recommend this book.

Jade C. Jamison's Nicki Sosebee Collection



nickisosebeebookset1

synopsis

A Kindle exclusive: The first four books in the Nicki Sosebee series in one neat bundle. If you liked Jade C. Jamison's Tangled Web, you'll love the Nicki Sosebee series.

Got the Life: Nicki Sosebee has been working low-paying jobs ever since she finished school, but now that she’s older, she wants more. She’s a novice reporter trying to learn the ropes. Just as she’s getting her career goals on track, though, her love life gets worse and worse. Sure, she has no problems picking up good-looking guys for brief flings, but relationships? Out of the question. Maybe it’s because Sean, her gorgeous best friend, just can’t see her as more than a buddy. So when Sean encourages her as she pursues her first headline-producing story, Nicki realizes that her life’s pretty sweet…if only she can live long enough to see tomorrow’s front page.

Dead: Nicki’s love life might suck, but her sex life is great. The only way both could be spectacular would be if her best friend Sean would look at her as more than just a friend. Nicki knows she’s stuck in the friend zone, so she focuses her energies on her job. She’s becoming a better reporter every day, so when her editor asks her to interview a local politician, Nicki is thrilled. But when the politician’s secretary ends up dead, it’s anybody’s guess as to who did it. Nicki has a few ideas, though, and finds herself in deep trouble as she pokes her nose where she thinks it belongs.

No Place to Hide: The Winchester Tribune publishes an article warning the women of Winchester that there is a sexual predator on the loose in the streets of the town they once thought was safe. Danger doesn’t stop Nicki, though, and it’s not till it’s too late that she discovers the criminal in the place she least suspects. And there’s no one who can save her this time. Meanwhile, she decides that her new love interest Jesse might be worth more of her time...but he’s not making it easy.

Right Now: Nicki is becoming a better reporter, so much so that her boss Neal leans on her more and more to get the good stuff. So when a rash of robberies hits the downtown Winchester area, Nicki is reporting the damage...and probably getting a little too close for the bad guys’ comfort. As if that weren’t enough, Nicki finds herself in a full-fledged love triangle between Jesse and Sean...and she can’t bear to choose between them.

Discover what other Jade C. Jamison fans have been buzzing about!

Warning: Not for the faint of heart! This book contains explicit sex and naughty language. Proceed with caution...if you dare.

synopsis

A Collection of Nicki Sosebee Novels 5-8

ONE MORE TIME: Nicki notices there is a big problem with the homeless population in Winchester, and the local shelter doesn't have any more room for them. Nicki becomes irate when the City Council decides to do everything in its power to drive the homeless out of town, because she has other ideas. Meanwhile, she and Jesse are still going strong, if they can keep everyone else out of their business.

LOST: Nicki and Jesse have broken up again, but this time it's for good. She realizes how much Jesse meant to her when she finds it hard to fly solo. And she's lost her touch, striking out with one guy after another. Her BFFs Brandy and Jillian try to take her mind off her pain, and Nicki finally reveals to them why she's never been able to forget about Sean, but she doesn't miss the opportunity to get down and dirty with a local rock star. In the meantime, the teenage daughter of a Winchester lawyer is kidnapped, and Nicki reports on the crime, hoping readers can offer clues to the authorities and find the girl...before it's too late. But what Nicki discovers leaves her horrified.

INNOCENT BYSTANDER: Nicki, now disillusioned, realizes that she is but a tiny cog in a big machine, and she begins to feel like she’s going to be swallowed up. As she opens her eyes to all that’s around her, her life begins to fall apart. She loses her car, her apartment, and almost loses her job, all to circumstances beyond her control, and the bad guys have nothing to do with it. But, through adversity, Nicki learns what she’s made of. She begins to dig deep into the underbelly of Winchester, and she finds that the drug trade isn’t just for the junkies.

BLIND: Nicki is angry. Now that she’s seen what the people in power will do to keep their control, she knows she has to play it safe. She’s threatened to topple their thrones and they’re feeling nervous. But she’s also feeling guilty about the murder of a prostitute whom she thinks she was responsible for, so she makes it her mission to help all the women of the night working in Winchester. And she does it the only way she knows how—by reporting what she’s learned. And with Sean behind her, she knows she can do anything she’s set her mind to.

Nicki Sosebee is a strong woman who's not afraid to go after what she wants, whether it's a man or a story. She's tough and her mouth shows it. She's a free spirit and feels no need to apologize for who she is or what she believes in.

Warning: Not for the faint of heart! This book contains explicit sex and naughty language. Proceed with caution...if you dare.

synopsis

Your wait is finally over!

In the meantime, Nicki hurts Sean and risks losing him for good.

Nicki Sosebee is a strong woman who's not afraid to go after what she wants, whether it's a man or a story. She's tough and her mouth shows it. She's a free spirit and feels no need to apologize for who she is or what she believes in. FAKE is #9 in the Nicki Sosebee series.

Jade C. Jamison was born and raised in Colorado and has decided she likes it enough to stay forever. Jade's day job is teaching Creative Writing, but teaching doesn't stop her from doing a little writing herself.

Unfortunately, there's no one genre that quite fits her writing. Her work has been labeled romance, erotica, suspense, and women's fiction, and the latter is probably the safest and closest description. But you'll see that her writing doesn't quite fit any of those genres.
