A novella-length Prologue to Captive Series Book 3, Hell’s Hilltop:

Abducted by men in black hoods, college nerd, Elsa Hellberg, was forced into a life of addiction and subterfuge. Today, she is a trained killer known as Crystal, and wears a black hood of her own; however, she once again finds herself a captive, forced to turn against the organization that made her. Torn between her need for power and a desire to reclaim the life she once had, Crystal’s ultimate decision revolves around the enigmatic pull of one man.

Mac doesn’t take the safety of his loved ones lightly. He considers Crystal a threat, and vows to keep her in line while she completes the mission she’s been assigned. Exposed to her world of blood, lust and lethal drugs, Mac soon finds himself battling his own addiction…to Crystal. When things turn deadly, can he pull her out in time to explore the true beauty beneath the hood? Or does fate have a different plan for the woman who’d sacrifice everything to save him?

I’m a big fan of the Captive Series and can’t wait to read the next installment!! 🙂

Crystal Mac is a great tease, and follow up to the second book, and hints at the whirlwind Hell’s Hilltop will take us on! I’m excited to read what shocking things will occur, and what will happen to Crystal and Mac. 

This is a novella so keep in mind that to get the full effect you MUST read the first two books! And trust me, you’ll be glad you did because they’re amazing!

J.A. knows how to write suspense, love, and mystery like no one else! There are cliffhangers (good ones, I promise 😉 ), shocking O-M-G moments, and much more! This novella was no exception. You’ll be left with your jaw on the floor once you finish!

Mac is a great character that we get to know a lot better in this story. Plus, we get to read about his strong likeness with Crystal–who you may recall might not be the best person to trust…  But, hey, opposites attract, right? So, what will happen next!?  My lips are sealed!!  If you haven’t gotten a taste of this series, run and get your copies!

Catch up on the series NOW!

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.
