Devious Minds 
(A Shelby Nichols Adventure Series #8)
by Colleen Helme
 
Blurb: 
It’s been almost a year since a near-fatal gunshot wound left Shelby Nichols with the ability to read minds. In that time she’s faced one problem after another. She’s been shot at, framed for murder, and targeted by a serial killer, just to name a few. Now she’s trying to help her lawyer husband win a murder trial that will enable him to become a partner in his law firm. Sounds easy, right? But nothing ever goes as planned when it comes to Shelby Nichols.
When special agent, Blake Beauchaine, shows up to collect a debt from Shelby, things get even more complicated, and Shelby is soon on her way to Paris. A routine meeting with a rogue agent reveals a sinister plot, putting Shelby into the cross-hairs of a known terrorist. Even worse, she doesn’t speak French, so it seems her mind-reading abilities won’t help her this time.
Things go from bad to downright dangerous for Shelby, especially since her usual guardians, Uncle Joey, and his hit-man, Ramos, are back in the states. Lost and on her own in the streets of Paris, can Shelby escape the cold-blooded killer in time to stop his devious plans, or will this be the end of the line for Shelby Nichols?

Excerpt

 

The first day of spring arrived,
filling me with an overwhelming sense of freedom. Even though the temperature
wasn’t real warm, it meant that winter was officially over. Even better, a ride
on the motorcycle behind Ramos was now a possibility.
I’d missed that and I’d missed
him. He’d been gone for two weeks helping Uncle Joey take care of some
out-of-town business. I wasn’t exactly sure what that entailed and… believe
me, I didn’t want to know. Jackie, Uncle Joey’s secretary and wife, told me
they were both due back in the next few days, and deep down where I didn’t want
to admit it, I could hardly wait to see them again.
That probably made me a bad
person, since I worked for Uncle Joey, and he was a mob-boss. Ramos was his
hit-man and he’d saved my life a few times. I had to admit, it was a far cry
from the first time I’d met Ramos almost a year ago, when he was thinking he
might have to kill me for the big boss.
I’d had to tell Uncle Joey my
secret that I could read minds to stop that from happening. Since then, my
skills had come in handy for Uncle Joey, and gotten me into a lot of trouble.
But he’d always been there to bail me out, both literally and figuratively.
So now I helped Uncle Joey, not
because I was forced into it, but because I wanted to. That was just twisted on
so many levels, and he wasn’t even my real uncle. But I couldn’t seem to stop,
so I did my best to keep on the right side of things.
Ramos was another part of that
story. He was one hot and swoon-worthy man any woman would fall for. I had to
keep reminding myself that I was happily married every time I laid eyes on him.
He was the quintessential bad boy and, like a decadent chocolate dessert with
whipped cream and a cherry on top, something that I might want in the worst
way, but would also be very bad for me.
If I wasn’t married with kids…
well, who knew what could happen, but I loved my husband and children, and
Ramos respected that. Even so, there were still times when my heart seemed to
have a mind of its own around him, and I’d have to rein it in or lose control,
which was not an option.
Only a handful of people knew I
could read minds, and I liked it that way. I told everyone else I had
premonitions, and that mostly worked. I also had my own consulting agency,
which included helping the police along with my own clients. Because of that, I
managed to get into even more trouble, and that wasn’t counting the mob-boss
part.
Like now.
My husband, Chris, had asked for
my help on a hard case. He was an associate partner in the prestigious law firm
of Cohen, Larsen and Pratt. This case was the single most important event of
Chris’ career, mostly because the partners were looking to replace the Cohen
part of the firm, and changing it to Larsen, Pratt and… Nichols.
This was a huge deal, and I
wondered if the fact that Chris handled all of Uncle Joey’s accounts had
something to do with it. Probably, but I wasn’t touching that with a ten foot
pole. This put a lot of pressure on me. Not as much as Chris, but still… I
didn’t want to screw it up for him.
That brought me to my problem. I
wasn’t sure I wanted to help Chris, mostly because he was defending a woman
accused of killing her husband, and ten million dollars from the life insurance
policy was in the balance. To complicate matters even more, the husband’s
company was one of Chris’ biggest clients.
If they won, Chris’ firm would get
a nice, fat share, and also keep the company as a client. But from everything
he’d told me, she sounded guilty as sin. If I listened to her thoughts, I’d know
for sure, and that would just ruin everything. It made me realize that
sometimes my ‘gift’ wasn’t so great. Not when I had to use it to get someone
off who actually deserved some jail time.
But… wasn’t that what I did for
Uncle Joey? So how was this any worse?
In fact, I’d recently made a deal
with a government agent to keep Uncle Joey out of prison. In exchange for my
help on one of his cases, he’d agreed to make any charges against Uncle Joey
disappear. When Uncle Joey found out what I’d done, he wasn’t too happy with
me. Especially since he thought I’d told Blake Beauchaine I could read minds.
Once he knew I hadn’t, and Blake
just wanted me for what he thought were my mad interrogation skills, he’d
calmed down. Still, Uncle Joey told me he could have handled anything Blake
might have thrown at him without my deal. To be honest, it kind of hurt my
feelings. Then he made me promise to involve him if Blake ever came to collect.
So now on top of everything else,
I had Blake’s phone call to look forward to, and Uncle Joey to involve after
that. It was enough to give me an ulcer.
“Shelby? We’re ready for you,”
Chris said, poking his head out of the conference room.

Guest Blog Post for Devious Minds

By Colleen Helme

Thank you for hosting me today!

For my new release, Devious Minds, I was able to fulfill a life-long dream of going to Paris! This book takes place there, and I knew that it would be much more believable if I’d been there myself. What an adventure! At the time of my visit, the book was all in my head, so I didn’t know what would happen to my character, but since I wasn’t tied down, this also allowed me to use my experiences there more fully.

It was amazing to place my character, Shelby, directly into some of the experiences I had while I was there. I enjoyed taking her for a walk down the Champs-Élysées and into Père-Lachaise and many other places I got to visit. The concert at Sainte-Chapelle in the book is also something I attended. My only regret is that I didn’t get to go on the motorcycle ride behind Ramos like she did!

When I got home, I found it imperative to use Google maps to find the street view for places I used in the book as well. I don’t know how writer’s survived without the information from the Internet! Most of my descriptions are as authentic as I could make them, and I hope it shows in the narrative of the book.

I wish I could have lived there as I wrote the book, but I still enjoyed re-visiting Paris in my mind for the next three months. My only sadness came after the attacks in November. It was chilling to be writing about a possible terrorist attack in Paris, only to have it actually happen, and it broke my heart. Because of that, I dedicated my book to the city of Paris. May your light always shine in the dark.

My visit there was magical, and because I got to write about it, even more special. Someday, I hope to go back and soak it all in. In the meantime, Joie de Vivre!

A Message from Author Barbara Speak

Let it be Us released on Monday January 25th. It was brought to my attention there was a problem with the book file. Upon further investigation Amazon admitted they were at fault. The file they sent to reader’s kindles was corrupted within their systems. This was not the fault of my editor, my formatter or myself. The problem has been fixed and Amazon is working on sending all the readers that received the corrupt file, a new copy. The issue that Amazon has caused resulted in bad reviews (based solely on the error) and readers returning the book. This has been very upsetting to me, I have put so much time and energy into making this book close to perfect and one sweep through a computer system has made a mess. I just want to put this out there so you all know this was in no way my doing. It could take up to 3 days to receive the new copy from Amazon, they will notify you via email. If you received the corrupt book, you can still read it, nothing is missing but please don’t base your reviews on the mishap, please base them on the story. I am so sorry for the inconvenience this has caused you, but I don’t want to be attacked in reviews because of something I had no control over. If you left a review based on the formatting, I ask that you edit the review and base it on the storyline not the error. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for understanding. Please give Canyon and Ari the chance they deserve.

Thank you,

Lipstick and Lead - CoverBOOK SYNOPSIS

This feisty cowgirl can’t be tamed—at least not by one man.

Barrel-racer Bella Roberts is winning every competition she enters. She’s at the top of her game and has her sights set on the rodeo finals. So why should she slow down long enough to glance at the cowboys tripping over themselves to get to her? If you’ve had one rodeo guy, you’ve had ‘em all. Besides, she’s determined to live up to her reputation, and bad girls don’t settle down.

The feisty Bella has been giving Carter blue balls since he’d walked into an arena and clapped eyes on her. There’s nothing sexier than a woman who handles a horse with such grace and skill, and her feminine guiles are definitely working on him. He’s been trying to sweet-talk Bella into his hotel room for weeks but can’t land more than a kiss.

Quint knows exactly what Carter’s up to. It’s totally obvious his friend is putting himself in Bella Roberts’ path. But Carter won’t get anywhere because Quint already has. And after that first hot-as-sin kiss, all he can think of is the sultry cowgirl. She won’t let him any closer, but her sassy mouth and brazen attitude just need a firm hand. Good thing he has two—and a lot of rope.

Bella’s in a sticky situation in the middle of team roping partners Carter and Quint. And now that they know she’s been toying with both, they share the same goals in and out of the arena—to have her. Together. Oh, she’ll let them try, all right. But don’t they realize she can’t be bridled?

by Roxie Noir

TITLE: Uncaging Wolves

SERIES: Shifter Country Wolves Book 4

ARC Received From: Roxie Noir

# OF STARS 5

Genre: PARANORMAL

Pages: 110

Overview:

Scarlet’s been a little too tied up to meet her true mates. Actually, she’s been getting reformed… in prison. Now that she’s free, she’s sworn that she’ll leave her old life behind. She’s got a steady place to live, a good job, and she’s minding the rules of her parole.

Maybe she’d be more convincing if she didn’t immediately sneak out of the house and head to The Den, a rough shifter bar. That’s where she meets two smoking hot, totally irresistible wolves, lies about who she is, and ends the night with quite a bang.

Wolf shifter mates Gavin and Chase have been on the straight and narrow for years, though they weren’t always so squeaky clean. On a night out at their favorite bar, they meet Sarah, the shifter woman of their dreams. They’re held hostage by her gray eyes and dangerous spark, and they can’t resist her, even when she disappears without saying goodbye. They have to find her. She’s the one, their fated mate.

That is, until Sarah shows up at Gavin’s office. Except Sarah’s real name is Scarlet, and she’s on parole – and that makes her Gavin’s newest charge.

Can Chase and Gavin forgive Scarlet’s lies – and forgive her for who she used to be? Or will Scarlet fade back into her old ways, losing her mates and her freedom in the bargain?

Uncaging Wolves is a steamy MMF romance about two mates, the woman they love… and the irresistible heat between the three of them!
