Hard Core

Every girl deserves an ex-military mercenary on her bookshelf.

Hard Core by Jennifer Lowery had my heart pumping with adrenaline and squeezing with sympathy for her captivating characters. Alana is a doctor who never got her license and practices on a remote island off the coast of Nicaragua. Christian is a killer with no heart, or so he’d like everyone to believe. They both have secrets, and neither of them seem inclined to share, even though the heat between them is enough to cause a forest fire.

I loved Hard Core. I found it tightly written, fast-paced, high on tension, and hot with a romance that burned up the pages. Enjoy these favorite lines of mine and pick up your copy of Hard Core today:

   “Do it,” he said.
    “Without anesthetics?”
    “I don’t need them. Just get it over with.”
    Stubborn, stupid, or both? Insane, yes, but there wasn’t time to argue with him.
    “Okay. The offer stands if you change your mind.”
    “I won’t.”–Kindle Location 371.

   “You got a name, Superman?”
    His head rolled to the side, his chest rose and fell slowly. She thought he was out but he murmured, “Christian.”
    “Nice to meet you, Christian.”
    Then she dug into the wound for the bullet.–Kindle Location 394.

   Only the animals of the night were up, and they no longer scared her. At least they killed for a reason. There were worse things in the jungle than wild animals.–Kindle Location 612.

She’d risked her life for that boy and it ate at him. He’d come back to tell her what a fool she was.
   Oh, hell. That wasn’t the reason he came back. She was. The look in her eyes before he walked out last night haunted him. She wanted him. And it wreaked havoc on his peace of mind.–Kindle Location 1568.


About Jessi Gage

Jessi lives with her husband and children in the Seattle area. She’s a passionate reader of all genres of romance, especially anything involving the paranormal. Ghosts, demons, vampires, witches, weres, name it, she’ll read it. As for writing, she's sticking to Highlanders and contemporaries with a paranormal twist (for now). A career student (aka indecisive and inquisitive bookworm), Jessi brings her love of research to her worlds and characters. Her guiding tenet in her writing is that good always trumps evil, but not before evil gives good one heck of a run for its money. The last time she imagined a world without romance novels, her husband found her crouched in the corner, rocking.
