Backlist bump – Darkness Falls

Darkness cover final

Contacting the winners of my blog tour for Broken Soldier and having them choose one of my books as their prize got me thinking I should show some love to my backlist books this week. Today is Darkness Falls.

DARKNESS FALLS:

21,000 words

BLURB:

 Matthew Tucker is a successful actor on a hit television show, his career on the rise. Life is good. What more could he want?

 Daniel Westman, that’s what – his co-star and close friend for the last two years.

Matthew desires more than friendship with Daniel, though, his attraction for the other man growing day by day. So much so that Matthew gives up the safety and security of his current long-term relationship for the slimmest chance of a relationship with Daniel, feeling there’s something between them, just under the surface. And he was gambling his happiness on it.

But months go by, with Matthew suddenly afraid to go forward, to make the first move, to tell Daniel he was falling in love with him. Because if he was wrong, and Daniel was just being his natural charming self and Matthew was looking too deeply into it…he’d lose his best friend.

So instead Matthew longs for his friend in silence, until an accident on set may leave Daniel permanently blind. With his friend hurt, scared and confused, his life possibly forever altered, Matthew never wavers from Daniel’s side, no matter how difficult it gets.

His dedication brings them closer than ever before , but is it possible to find happiness, and love, in the wake of a tragedy? Or has Matthew’s hesitation cost him that chance and he’ll lose Daniel to the darkness instead?

Shadow Unit may have overturned the illegal arms cartel in Kuala Lumpur, but the harrowing undercover op left emotional scars on Sergeants Shawn Weller and Connor Finley. Slowly, patiently, they piece their partnership back together, closer now than ever before.
Until a new mission threatens to tear them apart.
When Connor accidentally kills a civilian, he questions his job, his abilities, his worth. A timely offer of promotion seems his only way out, even though it means transferring out of Shadow Unit and away from Shawn.
The arrival of Julian Montgomery, Shawn’s former CIA handler and lover, further strains their relationship. Julian knows all of Shawn’s secrets as well as the past Shawn has kept hidden from Connor. Now the self-serving Julian wants Shawn back—with the CIA and with him. No one will get in his way. Including Connor.

5***** Stars

 Book: Broken Soldier

Author: Jamie Lynn Miller

Publisher: Lulu.com

Genre: M/M Romantic Thriller

Rated: Mature

Broken Soldier and Jamie Lynn Miller has given me first a good story and secondly some food for thought. Ms. Millers newest Broken Soldier is a stunning story of two partners in both love and job Sergeants Connor Finley and Shawn Weller are working for a joint covert ops anti -terrorism task force run through the UK and US. This called Shadow Unit.

The place is Kuala Lumpur, where the team is looking into the death of a local Triad leader Zhiang Chan. Their Commanding Officer Lt Col David MacDonald explaining the leaders son couldn’t wait for his father to age and die gracefully, killing him to take over the Triad and to expand into other areas his father didn’t get to.

The meeting is to put two of their own, deep under cover to gain the trust of the son YonjJae Chan.

Since Jae owns a top gay club, and Shawn and Connor are gay, they are being recruited to get up close to the leader and take him down. Connor is to get a job at the club to watch for deals and movement and Shawn will be the sex bait. This will certainly put a strain on them personally, since no one in the group knows they are a couple.

This is where I got the’ food for thought’ part of the book as I realized in this reading Broken Soldier, how dedicated some of our police, and all career people who do this type of work are and the toll it takes on their very souls. Shawn is asked to prostitute himself for the job, take drugs to ingratiate himself into the inner circle, whose main concern is nothing but their own pleasure and the owning of people.

Shawn has his job to do, get the bad guys while Connor watches in horror. No spoilers, just get the book and read it…..Powerful.

 

Test drive Broken Soldier before you buy!

Now that Broken Soldier is available on Amazon, Kobo, Scribd, ARe and the iBookstore, would you like to take a test drive before you buy? Now that my blog tour is over I’ve gathered all five chronological excerpts here. Give them a read and get to know Connor and Shawn!

EXCERPT #1:

Shawn lowered himself down onto Connor and Connor held him tightly, both of them trembling as their orgasms subsided. Shawn’s voice was a shaky whisper next to his ear.

“I love you.”

Connor felt his heart skip a beat. It wasn’t the first time Shawn had said those words. He squeezed his eyes shut and buried his face in Shawn’s shoulder.

“Shawn, I…”  But the last two words lodged in his throat and refused to be spoken.

Everyone he’d ever told he’d loved had died – been killed – and left him alone. His parents, his sister, his lover Mark. He never expected to get another chance at happiness and he was going to hold onto it desperately with both hands and not let go. He knew it was completely irrational, but he didn’t care. As long as he didn’t say it Shawn would stay safe.

Shawn lifted himself up slightly to look at Connor and he could see the understanding in Shawn’s blue eyes.

“It’s okay.” Shawn kissed him softly. “I know.”

~*~*~*~*~*~

Dawn was just breaking when Connor felt Shawn stir and he opened his eyes. He hadn’t been sleeping, though. Neither of them had been, really, their minds too occupied with the upcoming mission to rest. They’d instead spent the last hours in each other’s arms, making the most of the time they had left together.

Connor felt Shawn’s hand lightly trail down the back of his neck and across his shoulder and he lifted his head from where it had been resting on his partner’s chest.

“Hey,” Shawn said quietly with a small smile.

“Hey,” Connor echoed then sat up and kissed Shawn for a long moment.

When they moved apart Shawn looked down and unhooked his paracord bracelet from around his wrist, which he then fastened around Connor’s.

“Hang onto this for me, will you?” Shawn asked, trying for a light tone, but failing.

Connor shook his head, refusing to acknowledge the implication of Shawn’s action. He knew how much that bracelet meant to his partner. He’d received it the day he was accepted into the SEALs more than ten years ago and he had worn it every single day since. If he was giving it to Connor he was afraid there was a chance he wasn’t coming back from this mission.

“Shawn. No.” Connor reached for his wrist to unhook the bracelet but Shawn covered his hand.

“Connor. Please.” Shawn’s voice was rough. “Just…do this for me. Keep part of me with you.” Then he swallowed and forced a smile. “Besides, it’s just temporary, so don’t get attached to it. I’ll be asking for it back soon.”

Connor turned his hand over and linked their fingers together. “I’m going to bloody well hold you to that.”

The sun peeked over the horizon then, signaling the start to a new day.

Connor released a long breath and asked Shawn a familiar question. “Are you ready for this?”

Shawn squeezed Connor’s hand. “I am now.”
