I didn’t do it.
I never betrayed my friend.
Last year, I was kidnapped along with presidential candidate’s daughter Lindsay Bosworth, forced to help her assailants, my mother implicated in one of the biggest political scandals in American history.
I've been cleared of any wrongdoing, but that doesn’t matter. Once you’re tried by the media, you’re guilty as sin. The truth doesn’t get the public’s attention.
But shame? Shame sells.
And everyone assumes you’re tainted.
Now I have my own personal security team, courtesy of the United States government. Not the one you learned about in civics class, though.
I’m being tracked by the deep state. The shadow government. They’ve assigned Silas Gentian to be with me twenty-four seven. He thinks he knows everything about me – all of it bad -- and he does.
Like everyone else, he assumes I’m a traitor. A backstabber. A betrayer. Someone who helped a group of violent psychopaths, puppets of powerful men in Washington who made me into a tool.
Yet I see how he looks at me. True desire can’t be faked.
And that goes both ways.
He assumes I’m trying to fool him.
And he might be right.
But not for the reasons he thinks.
A Shameless Little Con is the first book in the Shameless trilogy by USA Today bestselling author Meli Raine.

A good suspenseful read
A Shameless Little Con is a good suspenseful read and I enjoyed it very much. Although it is a spin off from the Harmless series, the author does a great job, in a really clever way, of bringing the reader up to date with the story and I believe it can be read without having read the previous series.
The twists and turns of the storyline kept me glued to my seat, and the sizzling chemistry between Jane and bodyguard Silas Gentian was wonderfully written. At times, I did, however, feel there was a little too much of Jane’s internal dialogue and unnecessary travelling back and forth to The Grove. Just a small irritation, that didn’t take away from the story, but I would’ve preferred more conversation between the characters and less too-ing and fro-ing. Nevertheless, I found the plot engaging and Jane’s character brilliantly strong and witty, despite what life had thrown at her. Former tutor Alice, in particular, provided some great hilarity and I genuinely laughed out loud on more than one occasion. This is the first book of the trilogy, one which really sets the scene rather than provides answers and ends in one heck of a cliffhanger. Can’t wait to see what’s in store next.
Well what a story. This book follows on from a previous series, in this book Jane is the target. She is made to be a public enemy, there are lies being told about her and about her involvement in a crime. No one believes her and her life is in danger. This book has been left on a cliffhanger and I can’t wait to read the next book
Love this whole series did not see that coming like
