Friday Freebits…Pieces of the Past by Jamie Hill…#frifreebits

fridayfreebits

Welcome to Friday Freebits! Six paragraphs of a current book or a work in progress. I’ll try to choose six good ones for you! This week, six from my latest release which has just gone to print!

First, the blurb:

 

Hill-PiecesOfThePast-400x600.jpgPieces of the Past
Witness Security

The past is closing in on Christine Scott. Uprooted from her pleasant life in Chicago, she and her two children are thrust into the Witness Security Program when the mistakes of her husband catch up with him. He lands in prison, while she and the kids are transplanted to a quiet Kansas town. Christine does her best to keep life normal for her active ten-year-old son and persistently moody seventeen-year old daughter. But when they start receiving gifts from an anonymous sender, reminders of their old life, it becomes obvious that someone has found them.

Doug Jackson’s been in service with the US Marshal’s office for fifteen years. He hasn’t lost a witness yet, and doesn’t intend to start with Christine or her family. If he can get them to cooperate, his job might be easier. Unfortunately, no one seems concerned about making Doug’s life easy. Not the man in the white sedan who eludes him, nor the pretty Christine, thoughts of whom he can’t seem to shake. Their lives depend on Doug keeping his head in the game, and he’s determined to do just that.

“Ms. Hill is one of my favorite authors and I’m reminded of that each time I read one of her books. She has a talent for taking the reader on a journey with unforgettable characters while developing a plot line that is highly entertaining.” ~ Val, You Gotta Read Reviews

“Jamie Hill tells a wonderful story that sucks you in from the very first page.” ~ Alisha, Two Lips Reviews

————————————

And now the six paragraphs:

“So what did little Christine White want to be when she grew up? Somebody’s wife and mother? Or did you have grander plans?”

“Well, being a mother is about as grand as it gets. But I started college to be an accountant. That’s where I met Larry. I got pregnant and dropped out, while he went on to get certified. So I guess I had grander plans, but they got sidetracked. And I decided I liked the whole ‘wife and mother’ business. Is that so wrong?”

“It’s not wrong at all. I’m sorry you got sidetracked, though.”

She looked at him. “I’m not. It brought me to where I am today.”

Doug chuckled. “In a safe house, on the run from a Columbian drug cartel?”

Swatting his chest, she shook her head. “I wasn’t thinking of the big picture. I was thinking more along the lines of sitting here on the sofa with you.”

 

——————————

That’s six, sorry! Blame our Friday Freebits Hostess Ginger Simpson for the abruptness, she’s the one who chose to make it six paragraphs…LOL

Friday Freebits…Witness Security 2: Time to Kill by Jamie Hill…#frifreebits

fridayfreebitsWelcome to Friday Freebits! Six paragraphs of a current book or a work in progress. I’ll try to choose six good ones for you! This week we’ll take a sneak peek into my current work in progress, book 2 of my Witness Security series, Time to Kill.

Hill-TimeToKill-200x300I have a cover but no blurb yet. The heroine, US Marshal Jordan Burke, is thrown for a loop when her partner Doug Jackson takes paternity leave and the boss selects a former marshal to fill in–someone Jordan is intimately familiar with. Nick Pierce is as handsome and arrogant as ever. The idea of working with him for the next six weeks is infuriating as hell, or at least that what Jordan says.

————————————

And now the six paragraphs:

 

“Don’t call me ‘Jo’,” she snapped. “Nobody calls me that. And as for you filling in here? It’s the flipping worst idea I’ve heard since bacon-flavored Twinkies. The chief’s going to get an earful about this. If I was you, I wouldn’t unpack my bags.” She brushed past him, their arms touching.

Spinning around, Nick clutched her bicep. “Have it your way, Jordan. But as far as my being here—”

Her eyes blazed as she jerked away. “If I had it my way, you wouldn’t have gone to St. Louis, you asshole. You’d be someplace a lot warmer.”

He tried not to smile, but seeing the old spark in her come to life made that damn near impossible. “Oh yeah? Where would I be, Dallas?”

“Go to hell, Nick.” Jordan stomped from the room.

Laughing, he called after her, “I didn’t bring the right clothes for that trip!”

Friday Freebits…Impulsive (High Maintenance) by Jamie Hill…#frifreebits

fridayfreebits

Welcome to Friday Freebits! Six paragraphs of a current book or a work in progress. I’ll try to choose six good ones for you! Continuing on with my short story collection Impulsive. This week, six paragraphs from the final story, High Maintenance.

First, the blurb:

 

Impulsive

(Collection of short stories)

The first glimpse of a person, someone so breathtaking it’s almost stunning. That heart-stopping moment when gazes lock across a crowded room. Finding the courage to speak over the noisy thrumming of a heartbeat. Feelings so intense, they tend to make one’s actions a bit impulsive. Four stories of spicy, sweet, sassy romance. Three Wishes, All That Jazz, Playing With Destiny and High Maintenance.

Three Wishes: While visiting Madame Zena’s Mystical Shoppe, Macy Green discovers a dusty old bottle she never imagines could actually be magical. (paranormal romance)

All That Jazz: Devon Knight has a secret. He’s been watching his neighbor, beautiful Gia Malone, through their apartment windows, every day while he practices his trumpet. (sweet romance)

Playing With Destiny: When beautiful witch Calista Canyon discovers the man of her dreams living right next door, she tries everything she can think of, short of magic, to get him to notice her. (paranormal romance)

High Maintenance: Deidre North is enjoying a family ski vacation after Christmas, when an accident sidelines her from the slopes with a cast on her leg. (sweet romance)

“I loved the stories. Each of them was very different, which was something that I enjoyed. My two favorites have to be Playing with Destiny and High Maintenance. And don’t you just love the cover? I look forward to reading more of Ms. Hill’s work very soon. Impulsive is a great book to have with you while you’re on the go or only have a few minutes to relax. Just enough time to get lost in a short story and still be done in time for dinner.” ~ Val, You Gotta Read Reviews

————————————

And now the six paragraphs:

He had a gorgeous mouth. When it curved upward, her heart melted. She watched him move about the lobby, sweeping tidbits here and there, before he finally set the broom down. He straightened some magazines on another table, leaning down to pick up an insert card that had fallen out. “I hate these things.”

“Me too,” she murmured, staring at the perfect view of his ass in tight denim jeans. She thought about knocking a card from one of her magazines, just so he’d have to bend over again.

He moved in front of her, his crotch at her eye level. Flustered, she glanced up quickly and said, “I’m not much of a magazine reader myself.”

“Really?” He eyed the stack on the table next to her.

“My sister,” she explained. “Everyone wanted to do something when I broke my leg. She thought she was being helpful.”

“It was all the talk around here. We hate it when guests and trees collide.”

Friday Freebits…Impulsive (Playing With Destiny) by Jamie Hill…#frifreebits

fridayfreebits

Welcome to Friday Freebits! Six paragraphs of a current book or a work in progress. I’ll try to choose six good ones for you! Continuing on with my short story collection Impulsive. This week, six paragraphs from the third story, Playing With Destiny.

First, the blurb:

Impulsive

(Collection of short stories)

The first glimpse of a person, someone so breathtaking it’s almost stunning. That heart-stopping moment when gazes lock across a crowded room. Finding the courage to speak over the noisy thrumming of a heartbeat. Feelings so intense, they tend to make one’s actions a bit impulsive. Four stories of spicy, sweet, sassy romance.

Just enough time to get lost in a short story and still be done in time for dinner.” ~ Val, You Gotta Read Reviews

————————————

And now the six paragraphs:

The man was apparently as dense as the fog that swirled over the river when the sun went down. Calista Canyon had been his neighbor for over a year, not that he’d noticed. To be fair, she’d only recently become aware of him…in that way. Still, he didn’t seem to know she existed.

She stared through the window of her apartment directly into a window of his. The houses were built so close together, she could read the diploma hanging on his living room wall. Ryan Lenhart, Bachelor of Science Degree in Kinesiology, Oklahoma State University. Calista hadn’t gone to college and had never heard of Kinesiology, but after some investigating, discovered it dealt with exercise. After a little more digging, she learned Ryan was a personal fitness trainer.

One look at his toned body verified that piece of information. Calista hadn’t really looked before, nor had she given him much thought or attention in the past. Occasionally, she crossed paths with him as they came or went. Sometimes they met in the shared parking lot behind their houses. She drove a black Jeep and noticed he drove a red one. When the weather turned warm, he rode a bicycle, and continued that right through the mild Oklahoma autumn.

Fall was Calista’s favorite time of year. Long, scorching summer days shortened and turned cooler. Nights grew crisp and chilly. She left her windows open most of the time, and evidently, her neighbor did, too.

That’s what caught her attention the first time she noticed Ryan. Really noticed him. She heard noises outside and looked up from the book she was reading. Her apartment was on the third floor of an old house converted to rentals, so it was unusual to hear voices, but she knew she heard something. She walked around to the various windows until she hit upon the source of the noise. Her neighbor, whose living room faced hers, was entertaining.

That was the polite word for what he and his guest were doing. Rutting like wild animals also came to mind. Man, they’re really going at it. She shouldn’t watch, but it was like seeing a train wreck. She couldn’t help herself. Clutching the windowsill, Calista bit her lip.

Welcome to Friday Freebits! Six paragraphs of a current book or a work in progress. I’ll try to choose six good ones for you! Continuing on with my short story collection Impulsive. This week, six paragraphs from the second story, All That Jazz.

First, the blurb:

————————————

And now the six paragraphs:

Her hips swayed in time to the rhythm of his trumpet.

Devon Knight played a soulful jazz tune and stared through his window, into the
apartment of the tenant whose bedroom faced his.

He’d moved in two weeks ago and since then, he’d seen her there every day, dancing
while he played. He hadn’t thought she could hear him until old Mrs. MacGillicuddy, from
apartment four, informed him that the whole house heard his music when he practiced.

The single mother in apartment three worked days, so he felt sure he wasn’t bothering her. But the woman in apartment two, she was a mystery. Except for her name—Gia Malone–printed on her mailbox. Gia. Merely saying it made his heart flutter.

Did she know, with the curtains pulled back, he had a clear view of her bedroom from his
place? If she did, it never stopped her from moving around in the most form-fitting lingerie he’d ever had the pleasure of seeing. Sheer peignoir sets and lacy baby dolls hugged her abundant curves intimately. His favorite color on her was royal blue. Devon imagined it matched the irises of her eyes.

He couldn’t actually see her face, just the long, brown hair cascading over her shoulders.
Sometimes she pulled the curls off her neck before letting them fall seductively. Devon found every move she made seductive—whether she intended them to be or not, he didn’t know.

And now the six paragraphs:

Macy opened her eyes and discovered a filmy blue smoke in the room. She gasped as the smoke swirled into a shape, and suddenly a man stood in front of her. Squealing, she leaned back into the sofa and tucked her knees to her chest.

“Greetings, Mistress,” the vision said, and Macy clamped her hands over her eyes.

She tried to calm herself and slow her breathing before she peeked out to discover if she still saw anything. She did, and the thing she saw had the shape of a very fine man. Macy dropped her hands and stared at him. He was tall, with neatly trimmed black hair and a Van Dyke beard on a very handsome face. His deep brown eyes watched her with amusement.

They stared at each other silently for a moment before Macy forced herself to break away from his magnetic gaze and glance over the rest of him. He wore only a small blue vest and billowy white silk pants drawn tight at his waist and ankles. His firm, tanned body rippled with muscles.

“No fez?” The comment slipped out of Macy’s mouth before she could stop herself. She looked at his face, sincerely hoping he had a sense of humor.

He stared at her a moment before smiling. “I could never get into the fez. Hats don’t do a thing for me.”

Friday Freebits…On the Edge by Jamie Hill…#frifreebits

fridayfreebitsWelcome to Friday Freebits! Six paragraphs of a current book or a work in progress. I’ll try to choose six good ones for you! This week, my romantic suspense novelle On the Edge. These are the first six paragraphs in the book.

First, the blurb:

On The Edge

Detective Jake Gilford is skeptical when he hears Joss Wheeler say she believes her newly inherited house is haunted. He’s a man of facts and hard evidence, and ghosts aren’t on his radar screen. He’s also a man, and Joss is a beautiful, if somewhat nutty, woman. Won over by her charms, he’s mindful but not concerned about their racial differences. He promises to stay and help her unravel the mystery of the house, or whatever else she has that might need unraveling.

 

“Author Jamie Hill has a knack for pulling a reader deeper and deeper into her stories as they try to figure out where she is leading them. Her characters are very realistic as they grow closer while working together to discover what or who is trying to scare Joss away. If you love a good captivating mystery then you’ll want to make sure Edge is on your list.” ~ Tammy, Fallen Angel Reviews

“Jamie Hill tells a wonderful story that sucks you in from the very first page.” ~ Alisha, Two Lips Reviews

“A sit on the edge of your seat page-turner.” ~ Deb, Sensual Reads and Reviews

“Had me glued to the pages… Yup, Jamie has her literary talons in, and I won’t be satisfied till I get all the answers!” ~ Rose, Romance at Heart Reviews

“I read this book in a few hours, I just could not put it down.  I can’t wait to read more books from this wonderful and creative writer. FYI Don’t attempt to read this book at work, the time you spend reading it may cause trouble.” ~  5 Stars, Meekluv, Amazon Reader and Verified Purchase

————————————

And now the six paragraphs:

“I think my house is haunted. Either that, or I’m losing my mind.” The petite woman spoke matter-of-factly, a serious expression on her face.

Jake Gilford looked her over carefully, gauging his first impression. She was pretty, her caramel-colored skin slightly darker than his summer tan. Black-as-coal hair in springy ringlets touched her shoulders. Her eyes were a shade lighter, chocolate-colored, and definitely piercing as they gazed at him directly. She was a small woman, but shapely. He couldn’t help but notice her nicely rounded breasts straining against her thin t-shirt, and the way her hips filled out a tight pair of faded jeans. Which doesn’t mean she’s not a freaking nutcase. He smiled politely. “Miss Wheeler?”

“Of course I’m Jocelyn Wheeler,” she snapped, stepping back so he could come inside. “I phoned Chief Taylor about my situation. He assured me he’d send his best detective. I assume that’d be you, Detective…?” She shot him a look, which indicated her skepticism.

He forced another smile, and brushed past her, entering the old house. “Gilford. Jake Gilford. The Chief told me this was a special case. Something about he and your father being old friends—”

“They were. My father died a few months ago, and I’m here to settle his estate—the largest part of which is this house.”

He took in as much as he could of the huge, ornately furnished house. If she stood to inherit everything, she’d become a rich woman. He glanced at her—she fidgeted as she looked around, warily. A rich, nutty woman. “I’m sorry for your loss.”

Friday Freebits…Family Honor by Jamie Hill…#frifreebits

fridayfreebitsWelcome to Friday Freebits! Six paragraphs of a current book or a work in progress. I’ll try to choose six good ones for you!

First, the blurb:

Hill-FamilyHonor200x300Family Honor

A Cop in the Family, Book 3

Bodies of dead women are piling up and Detective Melanie Curtis is doing everything she can to solve the ‘Cheerleader Slasher’ case. Surprised to discover her chief has requested help from the FBI, she’s even more shocked when she meets the sexy FBI special agent sent to assist her.

 SSA Nate Willis tracks serial killers for a living. The slasher case is a challenge, but nothing compared to the feisty police detective he finds leading the investigation. Their attraction is swift and mutual, but the killer is escalating and they need to solve the case before they can focus on their personal relationship. When the unthinkable happens and the investigation is turned upside down, is their chance for happiness also in jeopardy?

“Author Jamie Hill has a knack for pulling a reader deeper and deeper into her stories as they try to figure out where she is leading them.” ~ Tammy, Fallen Angel Reviews

————————————

And now the six paragraphs:

“I’m sorry.” Willis put his hands on his hips. “Maybe we should put a notice in the newspaper, asking the killer to please do his dirty work earlier in the day because our officers are getting too tired.”

She stood to face him and realized they were very close to the same height. He was slightly taller, and for a second that threw her. Most of the men she worked with were shorter, and she knew she intimidated them. Nathan Willis was nowhere near intimidated. “Look, Agent, that’s not what I meant.”

“Supervisory Special Agent,” he corrected.

“Supervisory Special Ass,” she retorted. “Yesterday I was in charge of this case. Today, apparently, I’m playing second fiddle to you. Okay, fine, I appreciate the help, I really do. If you could just show some mutual respect and departmental courtesy, it might go a long way. Because I have to tell you, when you say ‘Jump’, not everyone around here is going to say ‘how high?’.”

Willis appeared taken aback. “You weren’t expecting me?”

“God no!” She nearly added you were the last thing I ever expected, but she held back.

Friday Freebits…Family Ties by Jamie Hill…#frifreebits

fridayfreebits

Welcome to Friday Freebits! Six paragraphs of a current book or a work in progress. I’ll try to choose six good ones for you!

First, the blurb:


Family Ties

A Cop in the Family, Book 2

With a couple of dead bodies thrown in, Detective Brady Marshall’s stolen goods case has just become a lot more interesting. His love life takes a turn for the better when he meets Gina Morris, a feisty waitress at the club where the latest victim has surfaced. A happily unattached ladies’ man, Brady isn’t looking to settle down. But after meeting the beautiful Italian spitfire, his thoughts are shifting in that direction.

Gina Morris doesn’t date cops. Until she meets Brady, that is, and gets won over by his dogged persistence and winning smile. With things in her past that are best left unspoken, Gina hesitates to get too close, but can’t resist the handsome detective’s charm. When his case runs smack dab into her past life, both of them are forced to make choices they never dreamed possible in an attempt to salvage their relationship, and possibly even save their lives.

Family Ties started out with a bang and kept me on my toes throughout the entire book. Ms. Hill did an outstanding job with the plotline, and I was literally biting my nails the entire time I was reading. I couldn’t put this fast paced, action packed book down. I HAD to find out what happened next. It was addicting. Ms. Hill has a gift of hooking the reader and not letting go until the very last word. And even then, there was a description of Family Secrets (the first book in the series). It’s now on my HAVE TO BUY list. So let me just leave you with this one suggestion. You really want to go out and buy this book. It’s a 114 page book that is filled with every emotion you can think of. You won’t want to miss this one. Ms. Hill is an author to watch.” ~ Val, You Gotta Read Reviews, 5 Stars

————————————

And now the six paragraphs:

Gina sat on the edge of the chair across from him. “Something happened tonight, something I never expected in a million years. As soon as we were alone, Jack told me he recognized me. From my younger days, you know, when I was using.”

Brady’s mind seemed to process the information. He spoke slowly. “Recognized you? What did he mean? Were you a stripper or something you never told me about?”

“No!” she insisted, then wondered if that would have been preferable to the truth. “My friends and I got in some trouble with the police one night. It was really cold outside, and we found this dead guy on a bench in the park. We checked his pockets to see if he had any money.”

“You rolled a bumsicle?” Brady asked with disbelief. “If he had any fucking money, do you think he’d have been out there in that kind of weather?”

“Of course not! Obviously, we weren’t thinking clearly. It was an awful thing to do, I know that now. At the time, it all seemed surreal. My father came to the jail and got me out before anything happened. I never heard any more about it. I’d actually forgotten about it, to be quite honest.”

“Jack was working that night?” Brady shook his head. “What fucking dumb luck. He was a pretty intense cop. Took shit like that seriously. I’d imagine he hated it when your old man showed up to bail you out.”
