From here on out, the Nicki Sosebee series is getting darker.
Like a dog with a bone, Nicki cannot help but continue to pursue realtor-turned-politician Gina McCafferty as the woman persists in making her play for Winchester’s open City Council seat. But Nicki is learning over and over again that there is more than meets the eye when it comes to her fair city. Meanwhile, her personal life is topsy-turvy, and a tattoo artist named Hunter makes Nicki’s life a living hell.
Alliances are tested. Lines are drawn. And events are set in motion that will play out in deadly ways…
Nicki realized she was gritting her teeth—not making noise or anything, but definitely clenching them so that her jaw was tense. “Oh, sorry.” She swallowed. “Maybe today I should just get my nose pierced.”
What? She’d lost her mind.
No, this was good. Change was good. Especially now.
Hunter nodded. “That’s not a bad idea. You’ve got a good nose for it.” She snorted then and peals of laughter flowed from her mouth. He gave her a puzzled look.
“Sorry. I write part-time for the Tribune, and my boss has told me I have a nose for news.” She laughed again and he forced a smile. “Sorry. I really have had way too much to drink. Maybe I should leave.”
He touched her forearm. “No, you’re fine. You’re just a bit giddy, and that might be due to a little adrenaline flowing through your veins.”
“Yeah, as you prep yourself for a little pain.”
“Oh…how bad does that hurt?”
He flipped his hand, palm up, grinning and shrugging, and then he shook his head. “I’ve never had my nose pierced, so I don’t know. Piercing itself, though? Kind of depends on where you’re getting pierced and what your pain tolerance is. I had a shitload to drink before I got pierced, and it didn’t hurt at all.”
“You have a piercing? Where?” Nicki couldn’t see any holes anywhere—not on his ears or face. Maybe his nipples?
He grinned again, standing and extending his hand to her. “A guy’s gotta have a few secrets. Come on. Let’s go get you prepped.”
“Excellent new addition to the series and definitely now one of my favorites!” ~ Sue Banner
“Way intense read…NICKI IS BACK!!” ~ Angie J, Twinsie Talk Book Blog
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
This series keeps getting better and better!
Nicki Sosebee is getting darker and that's a good thing. Nicki is learning things about herself as she continues to delve into the world of politics and she is surprised at what she finds.
On the personal front, her usual coping mechanism didn't turn out so good this time. What will this do to her on again/off again relationship with Sean?
The questions pile up in this installment of the series, and I for one can't wait to see what happens next.
Jade C. Jamison delivers a book that hints at answers and keeps you begging for more.
I mentioned in my video that Lies was book #11 in error - it is book #10 in the series.
For years, Jade C. Jamison tried really hard to write what she thought was more “literary” fiction, but she found herself compelled to write what you read by her today—sometimes gritty, raw, realistic stories and other times humorous, light tales—but most of the stories she writes revolve around relationships and characters finding their way through life. While she doesn’t confine herself to just one genre, nor is there a nice neat label for what she writes, most of her work could be called erotic romance.
She lives in Colorado with her husband and four children.

Exigency (Protectors of the Elemental Magic Book 2)
of the Elemental Magic Series
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy/Romance
There is a world around us
that most people don't take the time to see.
Mara Stone's world was shaken, but she is a
fighter. Facing new adversaries, Mara is learning what it truly means to
protect the magic. As she starts to rebuild her life, the web of her family's
secrets continues to unravel. Mara is forced to face her fear of losing
everything she holds dear.
She said that you would be a challenge to my
children. I thought I had made the right choice when I selected Eliza. If only
Mae had not interfered. But, enough of those sad thoughts, I think the two of
you will be perfect replacements.
When Mara and Cole find themselves in the cold
world of Snowstrum, they will have to choose either to be true to their promise
to protect the magic, or to follow their desires. Magic may not be enough to
free them from the icy fortress they are trapped in.
The second book in the Protectors of the
Elemental Magic series, Exigency is a compelling, magical
young adult fantasy tale.
As I continued walking, the air
died down but I quickly found myself encompassed by a dense fog. My hair was no
longer blinding me but I could barely see my hand in front of me. A soft voice
in me told me to just to keep walking and I listened until I stepped into cold
"Damn it," I cried
Not sure where I was I stopped
and called, "Air, please blow away this fog and let me see where I
Sitting down, I waited while the moist vapor
drifted away showing me that I was on the rocky shore of Sparrow Lake. Sitting
down, I wrapped my arms around my legs and gently began to rock myself. How
did I get so far from home? I felt as if I was losing a connection with
reality. I kept telling myself that if I just listened to my heart everything
would be as planned. As I questioned my recent behavior and my faith that the
Goddess would guide me, I heard a crackling sound behind me. Turning to the
direction of the noise, I saw a shadow quickly dart through the tree line.
Calling out, I said, "Stop! Who are you?
Why are you following me?”
No response came from the forest.
Standing to face the unknown, the cold breeze off the lake picked up and
covered my arms with goosebumps. Rubbing my arms frantically to warm up, I
called out again.
"Whoever is out there, show
yourself," I said.
"With all the magic you
hold, you could easily climb up the mountain and give them what they
deserve," said the bewitching voice of a woman.
"You could start a little fire. One
little ball of your magic could ignite the forest surrounding them. It would
grow and grow until it would burn the mansion down. Or you could call a great
wind and bring everything and everyone inside down into a crumbling ruin."
With more anger, the voice said,
"And there is always my favorite. You can call the rain and demand it to
pour down. Calling more and more of your magic until you finally send
everything off the mountain. Mudslides happen all the time."
"Or if you wanted to be lazy, you can
just ask the ground to shake and shake and shake until you have created dust
out of them all."
The voice taunted, "Wouldn't
it be so easy? Don't you think they deserve to be punished for what they did…?”

California. Her love of Dame Judi Dench and dreams of caticorns and rainbows

of elemental magic and the humans they lived amongst filled her mind. With her
