Locked & Reloaded

Countermeasure Series

Book 16
Éire Publishing, LLC

The conclusion of the Countermeasure Series' mystery.

NSA communications specialist George Miller is knee deep in the Middle East ops' aftermath when no-nonsense, take-no-prisoners Maya Shaw careens into his life. He hears alarm bells from the moment she walks into his office because the sharp-witted beauty not only wreaks havoc on his emotions, but carries the power to eradicate Operation Countermeasure. 

NSA auditor Maya Shaw is on a hunt for non-compliant operations within the organization. Self-assured--and definitely not looking for commitment--she’s more than willing to butt heads with the geeky specialist if that means getting the information she needs. What she wasn't expecting was to find a man who makes her heart question her head’s choices in life.

**For fans of Covert Affairs, NCIS, Blindspot, and Strike Back.
**Fourth in a thrilling, romantic suspense series!

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.
- Countermeasure
- Uncharted (FREE prequel with subscription to our newsletter)
- Ecstasy by the Sea (also available in Countermeasure: Bytes of Life Volume I Bundle Deal)

About the author


 Writing had touched Chris Almeida's and Cecilia Aubrey's lives in different ways through the years but had never taken flight until 2010, when Chris and Cecilia met and began role-playing online as a hobby. It was through playing fictional characters in a sort of improv written theater, that writing took a central position in their lives. The transition from role playing to novel writing was smooth and they attribute the ease of writing realistic characters to their ability to live the scenes 'through role play.

Chris and Cecilia have since chosen to release all their titles independently. They have several short stories and two novels published under their own label, Éire Publishing, and are vocal supporters of independent publishing done right. They are currently working on the next novel in their series. Through all the chaos and laughter, they still hold true to their roots, bringing their favorite role-play characters and stories to life.

War. Family. Love.
This box set includes the complete stories of the Alexander Shifter Brothers: Kane, Cade and Jacob.
Kane hates rules, but he’s not afraid to break them… especially for the woman he desires.
Kane wants Damesha from the first time he lays eyes on her, plain and simple. But he knows how strict the clan rules are about outsiders, and he knows the Alpha, his own brother, is not going to make any exceptions for him.
But he will do whatever it takes to have Damesha, even if that means turning against all his brothers!
Cade wants a wife but not love.
As head of the Alexander Shifter Clan, all he cares about is his duty to clan business, to family.
But they keep throwing women at him and he keeps rejecting them, again and again, and now rumors are spreading that maybe he doesn’t like women at all.
So he does what he does best, he handles the situation... by ordering himself a bride!
He could tell that Jacqui is a bit of an ice queen.
But he wasn’t expecting her to be so breathtakingly beautiful… he wasn’t expecting the electrifying attraction between them and he wasn’t expecting that she could be the true queen of the Alexander Shifter Clan.
Jacob has always obeyed his brothers, his clan… until he meets Sabrina.
The battle is coming. The Alexander brothers are about to face an old enemy in the biggest fight of their lives and they’re not sure if they can win...
Jacob’s adopted brother, Jadrian, is in trouble with the vampires. Jacob knows being adopted by a shifter family must have made Jadrian feel like an outsider and he’ll do whatever it takes to help his brother, including getting involved with the vampire queen Sabrina. Though he isn’t sure he can trust her, his lust for her is undeniable.
But Sabrina has plans which go far beyond just mating, and Jacob may be the key...
New York Times and USA Today bestselling series

Mister Black swept in and out of my life like a tornado, leaving me twisted up and forever changed in his wake.

And now that my life is finally back on track, I need to move on, despite the many reminders of our time together.

But our pasts are only as far away as the shadows we hide behind, and sometimes those shadows grow darker, converging on the present in the most insidious way.

He is Black: a stealthy hunter and rainbow master.

I am Red: a truth seeker and desire keeper.

Together we are obsession. Passionate colors destined to be drawn together.
