CONSTANCE BRETES (Cont.) BRINGER OF CHAOS: THE ORIGIN OF PIETAS BLURB EXCERPT When Patrick discovers Jade‟s past police experience he offers her a job on the force. He needs help working the kidnapping cases, and Jade previously solved a similar case, so she could be a valuable asset. But will they be able to fight the attraction that‟s sizzling between them? It could be very distracting if they can‟t control it. The clock is ticking. They have to find those babies and prevent more from being taken. But a very nosy news reporter may compromise everything if she digs deep enough to uncover Jade‟s past. Neither Patrick nor Jade thought they had room for each other in their lives but working so closely together makes it impossible to deny the chemistry. Can Patrick break through the wall Jade has built up around her, or will her past finally catch up with her so she loses every- thing once again? Jade rose, walked to the door, and put her hand on the doorknob, but before opening it, she turned to him. “Are you sure you want me to do this?” Patrick leaned back in his chair and stared at her as if he was reflecting on something. “Yes, I‟m sure. There are a lot of things we need to discuss. But right now I need you to get on board with Clyde, quickly, and start working this case while it‟s still hot.” “Okay. Where do you want me to work?” “The next room down the hall is the detectives‟ squad room.” He gestured with his thumb. “Grab whatever desk and computer you want. Stop by the lock-up room and get Mike to assign you a gun.” The case was the opportunity of a lifetime for her. It gave her the chance to prove to herself, to Patrick, and the whole world, that she could do the job. Would solving this help make up for the child whose life was taken be- cause of what she did? She took a deep breath, opened the door, and headed to the lock-up room. She had walked into the station to- day as a nine-one-one dispatcher and was now walking out as a detective. ***** Amazon Review by L. R. S: “This story is a very emotional love story. Jade goes through quite a heal- ing process. The man she falls in love with is her rock, and he helps her get through to the end while solving a mystery of kidnapped babies. Very well written.” https:// R9ZA8BRW3HCI4 7
