On The Road With The Jaunty Quills


I’m hosting romantic suspense author Pamela Clare over at The Jaunty Quills today.  She’s talking about her fabulous new I-Team novel and giving away books–you should join us! 

Guest Author: Pamela Clare & Giveaway!!


I’m so thrilled to be featuring Pamela Clare on the blog today because that means her new book is out–hooray!!  Most of you know that Pamela writes the most amazing romantic suspense (and historical romance).  Her books are exciting, suspenseful, deeply emotional, and have characters who leap off the pages.

Her new book is Striking Distance, and it’s the sixth installment in her highly acclaimed I-Team Series, which features a group of investigative reporters.  Striking Distance has been receiving phenomenal reviews, like this coveted Top Pick from RT Book Reviews:

“This sixth I-Team installment sees Clare at her very best, combining scorching desire with a gripping, often painful, exploration of healing and redemption. The plot’s mystery and suspense elements are exceptionally well researched and expertly plotted, but the real achievement lies in her beautifully crafted main couple. Her heroine’s ordeal is unspeakably painful, but her strength never wavers. The chemistry with her steadfast hero never lacks for sizzle, but the emotional bond they share allows them to go beyond the physical to a profound, unforgettable love.”

Striking Distance

Here’s the back cover blurb:

Her past is a secret—even to her.
Discovering it will be the most dangerous move of her life.

TV reporter Laura Nilsson, known as the “Baghdad Babe,” spent eighteen months in an Al Qaeda compound after being kidnapped live on the air. Two years later, she’s still wondering why.

No rescue mission in Javier Corbray’s fourteen years as a Navy SEAL affected him the way Laura’s rescue did. No woman has stirred his protective instincts the way she has. And he wants her more than he’s ever wanted anyone.

As Laura and Javier’s passion ignites, so does Laura’s need to discover the mystery of her past. Especially when she learns that her abduction was not random—and that she’s still a target for a killer with an impenetrable motive. Now Javier will have to rely on his skills to keep the woman he loves from being struck down before she dares uncover the truth.

Believe me when I tell you that you’ll want to read this book.  I have the feeling it will end up on bestseller lists and on a lot of best books of the year lists, and rightly so.  Pamela is a phenomenal writer, and the I-Team Series is everything I’m looking for in romantic suspense.  The books is available on Amazon, B & N, and in the iTunes store.  Check out Pamela’s website for more details and additional buy lines.

For my readers, Pamela is giving away a FREE digital copy of the erotic prequel to Striking Distance to everyone who comments today.  Wow!  First Strike is another great read, so you don’t want to miss out out on this!  Just leave a comment–tell us who your favorite romance hero is (any genre)–to be eligible.

First Strike (final) @ 800 300dpi

I have a lot of love for Pamela Clare.  She’s a fantastic writer (and a swell person), and her romantic suspense novels are some of the best written.  Her critically acclaimed I-Team series is emotional, suspenseful, erotic, heart-felt…everything I want in my romantic suspense.  And I’m happy to say that Pamela has new releases and special deals, both this month and in November.

Let’s start with First Strike, the erotic prequel novella to her upcoming I-Team release, Striking DistanceFirst Strike is in stores now, and it’s great!  Here’s the blurb:

Just a weekend…

Laura Nilsson knows what she wants: a successful career as a broadcast journalist—and a little fun between the sheets now and again. What she doesn’t want is marriage or kids. When a ripped and sexy stranger intervenes to stop a couple of drunks from harassing her in a hotel bar in Dubai City, all she can think about is spending the rest of the weekend with him—in her bed. There’s just one little problem. Unmarried sex is illegal in Dubai.

… of no-strings sex …

Navy SEAL Javier “Cobra” Corbray is on his way home from a rough deployment in Afghanistan when he finds himself having dinner with “the Baghdad Babe.” What she wants from him—sex with no strings—could land them both in prison. Still, he’s more than happy to oblige her. She’s confident and sexually assertive, and he’s secure enough to lie back and let her make the first strike. But, as she’s about to find out, he’s more than her match.

… or the beginning of something more?

Yet, neither Laura nor Javier has any idea what lies ahead—or how this weekend of mind-blowing sex will impact their emotions. Will they act on their new-found feelings in time, or will they let something special slip away… perhaps forever?

One warning–First Strike ends with a cliff-hanger that leads into Striking Distance, but since that book comes out on Nov. 5, you won’t have long to wait!  And for a limited time, First Strike is on sale for–wait for it–only 99 cents!

And speaking of bargains, Pamela’s last book, the wildly acclaimed Breaking Point, is now on sale for only $1.99 until October 30th.  Trust me–it’s a total steal at that price.

Breaking Point

You can pick up Breaking Point at Amazon, B & N, and all other e-retailers until the 30th.  If you’ve never read Pamela’s books, this is a great place to start!
