Shadows whisper and the words are deadly.


A small, friendly Colorado town, nestled in the breathtaking Rockies, cloaks a malevolence, an evil that stalks women.


Jesslyn Black, a writer, is content living her now-single, childless life. If she keeps to herself, she can’t get hurt. Haunted by the past, Jesslyn never again wants to experience the soul-shredding pain of losing loved ones.


But a murder changes that.


Aiden Kinncaid is running from his own secret loss. As the CEO of Kinncaid Enterprises, he travels to this remote Colorado resort town to oversee the opening of the new Highland Hotel. Though he’s not interested in any kind of relationship, he finds himself drawn to this temperamental, brown-eyed beauty. And her rough-edged attitude is a challenge to him.


But whether or not either sought a relationship, they’ve found one. Aiden wants to protect Jesslyn even if she claims she can take care of herself, and she finds she can’t stop thinking about Aiden, even when he annoys her. Will they get their second chance at love and life before the killer eliminates one problem he doesn’t need?

“Deadly Obsession . . . is an absolute must-read! Jaycee Clark has delivered a masterpiece!” —Fallen Angel Reviews


Safe . . . for now


For almost nine years Christian Bills has been hiding, but in that time she’s created a new life for herself with the help of the wealthy and powerful Kinncaid family. Now, dark secrets and an unforgettable nightmare from her past threaten to rip her safe world apart. 



Devoted . . . but kept in the dark


Brayden Kinncaid has known Christian for years and only recently discovered his feelings for her go beyond friendship. But the changes in the once strong-willed woman are startling. Her haunted gray eyes and darting looks lead him to believe something is drastically wrong. No matter how hard he pushes her, she won’t confide in him. Brayden vows to discover what she is hiding—before it is too late.



She’s his angel . . . his love . . . his obsession . . .


Demented and sadistic, he’d once possessed her. And though she’s been gone nine long years, he knew she wasn’t dead, and now he’s finally found her. He knows everything about her. Everything she does. Where she works, where she lives. And he’s come back into her life to reclaim what’s his.



"DEADLY OBSESSION is the third story about the Kinncaid family and is a heart-wrenching tale. A well-written, in-depth romantic suspense, Jaycee Clark's DEADLY OBSESSION is one of those stories that will linger in your mind and heart long after the story is over.” —Sinclair Reid, Romance Reviews Today



2004 Best Small Press Romance Award Winner

4.5 Stars 


"This is an exceptionally well-written novel. It's Clark's third book about the lives of the compelling Kinncaid brothers, but it easily stands alone. The main characters are subtle and complex from page one, especially the particularly strong, emotionally full-ranged heroine. The dialogue is outstanding, and the pacing both realistic and highly suspenseful." —Marilyn Weigel, Romantic Times


The stakes are higher . . . the risks are steeper . . . the chances more fatal . . .


Rori Maitland has lived her life the way she’s wanted it. After retiring from MI6, she’s her own woman, few friends, no husband, and that is the way she bloody well prefers it. After all, her job is hardly normal.


Ian Kinncaid, master of disguise, has been estranged from his family for well over a decade. With his deep cover blown, he now needs a safe place to put the little girl he saved from the Czech underground. But the shadows cloak enemies and trust comes at too high a cost.


When Rori’s latest mark goes awry and she finds herself helping the intense man, instead of killing him, she’s thrown into a world she had hoped to leave behind. Now Ian and Rori must work together before someone marks them both for death and kills everyone they both hold dear.





“DEADLY GAMES is a spine-tingling, thrilling ride that readers will devour in one sitting. Ms. Clark adds another layer to her ongoing saga about the Kinncaid brothers in DEADLY GAMES. This is Ian's story, and what a story it is.”

“Deadly Ties is just an all-around amazing story. The suspense will have readers at the edge of their seats!” —Fallen Angel Reviews: Five Angels: Recommended Read 

Some bonds are love . . .

Taylor Reese is done with men—especially egotistical ones—no matter how charming they may be. The only exception to her “no men” rule is her eight-year-old adopted son, Ryan, who is wonderfully adjusted considering the environment his parents forced him to endure. Both are starting over in the Washington, D.C., area and aren’t looking for anything more than peace and quiet. Thanks to Gavin Kinncaid, that peace and quiet is nothing more then a fleeting dream. 
 

Some ties can never be broken . . .

Dr. Gavin Kinncaid, one of the most successful doctors in his field and well aware of it, knows women—or so he thinks, until he meets Taylor Reese and realizes he doesn’t know anything about the opposite sex. Taylor is nothing like any woman he’s ever met. More than that, she’s the only woman he’s ever wanted to strangle. But when fate throws them together on a rain-swept deserted road, passion soon twists their feelings into more than antagonism. First desire, then friendship, and finally love.


And some bonds are deadly . . .

As the three of them grow closer, learning to trust and building bonds none of them ever thought they’d have, a menace approaches. A menace that will destroy each of them and the bonds they've worked so hard to forge: Ryan's mother has escaped from prison, and she has only one plan—to rip this happy family apart and reclaim what she considers hers, no matter the cost.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Family secrets come back to haunt Jack Reacher in this electrifying thriller from “a superb craftsman of suspense” (Entertainment Weekly).

Jack Reacher hits the pavement and sticks out his thumb. He plans to follow the sun on an epic trip across America, from Maine to California. He doesn’t get far. On a country road deep in the New England woods, he sees a sign to a place he has never been: the town where his father was born. He thinks, What’s one extra day? He takes the detour.

At the same moment, in the same isolated area, a car breaks down. Two young Canadians had been on their way to New York City to sell a treasure. Now they’re stranded at a lonely motel in the middle of nowhere. The owners seem almost too friendly. It’s a strange place, but it’s all there is.

The next morning, in the city clerk’s office, Reacher asks about the old family home. He’s told no one named Reacher ever lived in town. He’s always known his father left and never returned, but now Reacher wonders, Was he ever there in the first place?

As Reacher explores his father’s life, and as the Canadians face lethal dangers, strands of different stories begin to merge. Then Reacher makes a shocking discovery: The present can be tough, but the past can be tense . . . and deadly.

Praise for Past Tense

“Child is one writer who should never be taken for granted.”—The New York Times Book Review

“[Lee Child] shows no signs of slowing down. . . . Reacher is a man for whom the phrase moral compass was invented: His code determines his direction. . . . You need Jack Reacher.”—The Atlantic

“Superb . . . Child neatly interweaves multiple narratives, ratchets up the suspense (the reveal of the motel plot is delicious), and delivers a powerful, satisfying denouement. Fans will enjoy learning more of this enduring character’s roots, and Child’s spare prose continues to set a very high bar.”—Publishers Weekly (boxed and starred review)

“Another first-class entry in a series that continues to set the gold standard for aspiring thriller authors.”—Booklist (starred review)

“With his usual flair for succinctness and eye for detail, Child creates another rollicking Reacher road trip that will please fans and newcomers alike.”—Library Journal (starred review)
