Interview with the Authors
Q - So what makes the Countermeasure Series special?
A - Countermeasure pulls in the best of Erotic Romance, Adventure and Suspense into one single series. We also aim to write about people, not characters. They are true to life and flawed, also someone you feel you can connect to and invite for a coffee just to shoot the breeze. The series has two separate, yet connected sets of books. The novels develop the bulk of the mystery and adventure in the plot. The short stories and novellas develop the characters and bare the characters' souls to you. All of their dreams, disillusions, fears are exposed in the short stories. The short stories and Novellas are also what we call Romantica. They are stories portraying a day in the life of the characters after their "I do". A mix between Romance and Erotica where you are the fly on the wall during the married couples' intimate moments. If you enjoy high heat, spicy reads involving married couples, you got to the right series.
Q - What order should I read the books?
A - We recommend you read the novels and novellas in the following order. Please note the short stories and novellas are not mandatory reads to understand the suspense arc in the novels.

One word: HOT!
**An ARC in exchange for an honest review**
One word to describe this short story: H-O-T... Hot! Cassandra and Trevor are a married couple who have basically never spent a night awothout each other. Trevor misses her so he texts her which begins the story. Usually I'd think of Trevor's character as clingy, but nope! Not in this short story. I love the fact that they are both still very much attracted to each other and they don't hide this fact. However, the only downside is that this story is super short. I want more on these two! Great story and can't wait to read more from this author!
A Short and HOT One...
As with everything these authors write, Roaming Pleasure, though a short, quick read, captures you from page one and draws you in to the point you forget your just a reader. Roaming Pleasure finds Trevor and Cassie apart from each other for the first time since landing in Ireland, and as with any whole made up of pieces, when a piece is missing the rest doesn't work as it should.
Trevor has too much time on his hands with Cassie away on an assignment...even after completing all work tasks, and a bit of social fun, he still can't seem to function well without her. Finding what he thinks will "kill two birds with one stone", he starts a bit of "naughty" play via text (sexting) which when received by Cassie, at a complete wrong place (logistically) still gets these two back in sync...even hundreds of miles apart!
As always, the style of writing these authors use for the erotic (I myself am not a fan of Erotica, but find that theses authors use a good measure of class when including these types of scenes, thereby making the reading pleasurable) scenes between Trevor and Cassie are so much of who the couple are...that not for a moment do you see it as anything but what it is, two people who love each other demonstrating it in their own unique fashion.
If you haven't already read any of the other books by these authors, I'm positive that Roaming Pleasure will start you on the journey of discovering their other works.
This book was given to me as an ARC in exchange for my honest review. The above review expresses my own views and in no way that of the authors.
A wickedly sexy, hot little story…
This is a short story in the Countermeasure series. We are given a glimpse into a bit of time in the lives of Cassandra and Trevor Bauer. The couple are separated for the first time since they were married and missing each other terribly.
Cassandra is in the United States assisting the CIA while Trevor is at home in Ireland. Trevor doesn’t know what to do with himself outside of work, everywhere he goes and everything he does brings him memories of the wonderful moments he's spent with his wife. With a little technological help Trevor reaches out to his wife, letting her know just how much he misses her and what thoughts of her do to him. And though they are separated by a continent Cassandra takes pleasure in the connection.
This is a wickedly sexy, hot little story so appropriate to the personalities of these characters. It’s also very sweet how deep their love is for each other and how they can make each other feel it from afar.
