Out today!


Book Title: Deadly Trouble

Author: J.L. Hammer
Release Date: August 17, 2015
Genre: Romantic Suspense

Book Synopsis:

Las Vegas embalmer Lily Sanborn’s vacation at the remote retreat in Belize should have been heaven…if her idea of heaven was a gazillion degrees, humidity, and enough mosquitos to require daily transfusions. Just as she decides to make the best of her tropical destination, she stumbles upon a murder, witnesses a kidnapping and meets the most attractive man she’s ever seen.

Dr. Cooper Deforest is seriously attracted to this stunning woman with a razor-sharp tongue. In fact, he is having the damnedest time trying to keep his hands off Lily. But when murder, kidnapping, a drug cartel and police corruption intrude on his peaceful jungle world, Cooper wonders just what sort of person Lily is.

Even though their chemistry sizzles, Lily’s trust issues get in the way. As much as Cooper wants this woman, he can’t get over the fact that wherever Lily goes, death seems to follow…



Cooper’s brows lifted skyward. “Sleeping with me? What, do you think I’m easy?” Without a doubt, this lady was a firecracker. He found her feisty nature and lack of coyness intriguing and completely opposite from most of the women he met. Earlier, when he’d seen her sitting by herself eating breakfast with the sunlight shimmering off her silky, midnight hair, he’d stopped dead in his tracks. After speaking with Xavier and learning she was on a solo trip, Cooper did an about-face and introduced himself.

“Hmmm. That thought did cross my mind.” Her exotic eyes, the ends pointing slightly upward like a cat, lowered to his chest.

He swore he could feel the heat from her gaze. He shook his head, fighting against the grin threatening to surface. “Hey.” He pointed at his face. “My eyes are up here.”

A hint of pinkness appeared on the ivory skin along her high cheekbones. On closer inspection he noted the lightest spattering of freckles on the bridge of her nose.

“If you don’t want me to look, then stop showing off your chest…wait that sounded wrong.” A crease marred her brow. “How did I turn into the boy in this conversation?”

She looked adorable all flustered with her face scrunched up. If his partially unbuttoned shirt caused her to be so animated, so be it. Not that he was trying to be sexy, mind you, but it was humid as hell and he required a little ventilation. “And what’s your name, if you don’t mind me asking? I’d like to know what to call the temptress who considers me eye candy.”
