Chris Gabriel left JAG to do something more ethical, more honest. He found his niche as a PJ. When an old flame shows up on his doorstep begging for sanctuary and his silence, he can’t turn her away. The man who never lies, is forced to do just that. When her husband is found murdered in Gabe’s apartment, and she has vanished, Chris is the only suspect. Offering her sanctuary was one thing, but taking the fall for murder quite another. Or so says his JAG attorney, Claire Janova, who must defend a man who will not defend himself.
Sergeant Chris Gabriel was clearly expecting someone else when he pulled the door open. His expression went from hope to disappointment to no emotion whatsoever in a matter of seconds.
Claire looked up into pearl grey eyes and held out her hand.
“Sergeant Gabriel, I’m Claire Janova.”
He looked from her hand to her face and back to her hand but didn’t move a muscle.
“I’m a JAG attorney from D.C.”
“Can I come in and talk to you?”
Chris was rooted to the spot. He’d been hoping--expecting--the woman on the other side of the door to be small and blonde, not tall and dark and gorgeous. She wore jeans, sandals, and a crisp striped blouse and her dark hair hung down past her shoulders. She had a voice that struck him first as hoarse, but then as acutely sultry.
A JAG attorney from Washington?
Reluctantly he found his manners--he really didn’t want to see anyone aside from Suzanne--and a JAG attorney was low on the list. But good breeding was hard to overcome so he reached out and shook her hand, impressed by her firm grip.
“May I come in?” she asked again, smiling.
Smile or no smile, this woman was all-business. And while she didn’t, at this point, appear threatening or sinister, he was wary. But he had nothing to hide.
He had a great deal to hide, just none of it because he, personally, was guilty of anything.
Except maybe stupidity.
He stepped back. “Come in.”
Jaxine Daniels lives with her hubby and some of her family in Colorado Springs, Colorado. She spent ten years as an emergency medical technician and worked both on an ambulance and on Search and Rescue. She created Stress Arrester, a company that provides stress management to individuals and corporations. She speaks nationwide on a number of topics, including writing.
A SOFT PLACE TO FALL is the first in a five book series by Jaxine Daniels about pararescue jumpers. Nic D’Onofrio, "Batman" to his friends because he was forever saving the day, has recently lost one of his best friends in a training exercise in Afghanistan and is taking a short skiing vacation for his mental well-being...
...Jaxine Daniels has written an excellent book with A SOFT PLACE TO FALL, about a group of five pararescue jumpers who are all extremely loyal to each other. They are a brave and daring group, totally dedicated to their job, their friends and their families. Insight is given into this fascinating job, which only adds to the intrigue. I personally had never given much thought to this type of rescue and found Ms. Daniels’ descriptions enlightening. The love story between these two characters is very sweet with love scenes that are satisfying without being overly explicit or highly erotic.
I found this book enjoyable and very interesting and look forward to reading the four books that will follow. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a sweet love story wrapped in adventure and excitement. -- Laurie Damron, Romance Junkies
