Book description:

Book 2 of J. A. Dennam’s Captive series:

Melanie Parker’s life takes a gut-wrenching turn when she wakes up in a crumbling, unfamiliar environment. Even worse, her small child is in the arms of a certifiable killer, but Rena Hellberg isn’t the only immediate threat. Melanie’s abductor lurks in the shadows, a quiet, hooded stranger who’s calling the shots. When she refuses to play the meek hostage, he reveals his darkest secrets in order to gain her cooperation.

Though he can barely trust himself, he can’t deny his feelings for a woman he should have left alone. It wasn’t his intention to bring her into a world he’s trying to break free of, but he refuses to let it destroy her. The formidable legion of enforcers who took him and made him one of their own won’t tolerate rebellion of any kind. But they’ve never dealt with such a stubborn recruit…or one with so much to live for.

An exclusive excerpt from Between Faith and Fear:

Melanie’s cooperation was too important. Her child presented a problem he hadn’t counted on.

Something had to change, as this was no longer a simple plan.

Sensing her eyes on him, he turned, regarded her with doubt. Should he? It was never supposed to happen. He shouldn’t put her through that kind of turmoil; it wasn’t fair to her.

But life had handed him a shit-ton of unfair.

Since he’d sent the dog downstairs to keep an eye on Rena, they were alone. Expelling a heavy breath, he moved barefoot over the debris, knowing if she were to close her eyes, she’d never know he approached.

She sat up, her slender shoulders stiff with expectation. He lowered himself before her, mirroring her position with his knees to the floor. They were close. She didn’t budge. The questions must have been compiling in her beautiful head since he’d ordered her to sit down because she whispered…

“You kissed me.”

She remembered. “Yes,” he answered truthfully.

After a moment’s hesitation, she nodded. “It was… familiar.”

Aw, hell. “Just familiar?”

He could hear her frantic heartbeat. It pounded beneath the light cotton of her t-shirt as she hesitantly raised her hands. If he let her do this, there would be no turning back. His dark, possibly limited existence would put a stain on the comfortable life she’d found without him. But, much to his dismay, the decision had been made the moment he took her.

He bowed his head… and waited.

ANOTHER  excerpt! Enjoy:

When gravity took hold once more, they settled back to earth in each other’s arms. As they caught their breath, he brought his hand up, moved her hair back, exposing her face as she lay panting on top of him.

“No matter what happens from here on out,” he said quietly, “I want you to know that I have lived every day hoping to get the chance to see you again. Make love to you again. Tell you how I feel without my pride getting in the way.”

Her eyes opened and she looked at him with wonder.

God she was beautiful. Her flawless skin, devoid of makeup, was every bit as soft as it looked. The color of her hair blended with the heatherblue of her eyes in a way that always reminded him of summer. “I love you, Melanie,” he whispered. “Since the day you first batted those eyelashes at me.”

She blinked slowly, shook her head. “Until today, I thought I’d never hear those words from you.”


jadennamAbout J.A. Dennam:

J. A. Dennam, an award winning author and member of Romance Writers of America, resides in a small Kansas town with her husband and four children.   Besides her great love for literary arts, her passions include fine art, culinary art and music.

Storytelling has been a part of her life since childhood, when insomnia forced a young girl of six into counting popcorn on the ceiling in the dead of night.  Confessing her problem to her older sister, the two girls decided to tell each other stories to entice sleep; however, the inevitable snore always tore through her sister’s nose before she could utter the words ‘Once Upon A Time.’  So, the stories began to flow in silence, her imagination taking her to quiet, private places so enthralling, the trick was suddenly to stay awake.  Each night, she went to bed anticipating the continuation of the adventure that had been interrupted by sleep the previous night.  Soon, insomnia was no longer a problem and the stories would sometimes take months to complete.

Those habits carried on to adulthood until the need to purge her stories demanded she put them in print.  Her fascination with romance, fast cars and adventure films is what structures her stories today, making Romantic Suspense the genre she was simply born to write.

For over twenty years, Ms. Dennam has been ensconced in her career as a painter of Western art.  In the meantime, however, she managed to complete three novels: FLESH OF ANGELS, FLESH OF THE FATHER, and TRUTH AND HUMILITY.  The recent decision to forgo her fine art career in lieu of her writing career was a simple one.  Her passion for writing far outshines all other passions and she has only just begun to build her list of achievements by entering writing contests, joining local writer’s groups and stocking local bookstores with her titles.

Ms Dennam is proud to announce that she is now represented by Marisa A. Corvisiero, Esq. with the Corvisiero Literary Agency.
