Hard Target launches a new high-octane I-Team spin-off series
With the I-Team and Colorado High Country series more or less completed — I never say never — it’s time I jumped back into romantic suspense. The Cobra Elite series focuses on the private military company started by Javier Corbray (the hero of Striking Distance) and Derek Tower (a character in Striking Distance and Seduction Game).
We’ll travel the world with the brave men and women who work
for Cobra, starting with Derek Tower. Here’s a description of the story:
A life debt…
Derek Tower has spent his life at war, first as a Green Beret and then as the owner of a private military company, Cobra International Security. When a high-ranking US senator asks Cobra to protect his daughter, a midwife volunteering in Afghanistan, Derek’s gut tells him to turn the senator down. The last thing he wants to do is babysit an aid worker. But Jenna isn’t just another assignment. She’s also the younger sister of his best friend, the man who died taking bullets meant for him. There’s no way Derek can refuse.
An inescapable attraction…
Jenna Hamilton doesn’t need a bodyguard, especially not one hired by her intrusive and controlling father. She knew the risks when she signed on to work in rural Afghanistan, and the hospital already has armed security. She also doesn’t need the distraction of a big, brooding operative skulking about, even if he is her late brother’s best friend—and sexy as hell. As far as she’s concerned, he can pack up his Humvee and drive into the sunset. And, no, nothing her hormones have to say about him will change her mind.
A merciless enemy…
From the moment his boots hit the ground in Afghanistan, Derek does his best to win Jenna over, posing as her brother so the two of them can spend time alone. Except that what he feels for her is anything but brotherly. Stolen moments lead to secret kisses—and an undeniable sexual attraction that shakes them both to the core. But events have been set into motion that they cannot escape. When a ruthless warlord sets his sights on Jenna, Derek will do whatever it takes to keep her safe, even if it costs him his heart—or his life.

I-Team and Scarlet Spring heroes together in Chasing Fire
If that sounds like your idea of a perfect afternoon, you’ll want to grab Chasing Fire (An I-Team/Colorado High Country Crossover Novel). The idea came to me in July 2016 while listening to firefighters contain the Cold Spring Fire above Nederland. I wondered what would happen if Scarlet Springs were threatened by an out-of-control wildfire, and how it would go if some of the I-Team men just happened to be up there, too.
All those heroes in one place. Talk about heat!
Here’s the back blurb:
Fire chief Eric Hawke knows it’s only a matter of time until the next big wildfire. He’s done everything he can to prepare his crews for the inevitable. When high winds turn a small blaze into a raging crown fire that threatens Scarlet Springs, he, Brandon Silver, and the rest of Scarlet FD put their lives on the line to save the town and its citizens. But the one thing Hawke hadn’t planned for was bureaucratic red tape and waffling from higher-ups that could turn this crisis into a catastrophe. When his requests for support go unheeded, he’s faced with the prospect of watching the town he loves burn to ashes.
But sometimes help comes from unexpected places.
Marc Hunter, Julian Darcangelo, and Zach McBride are in the mountains above Scarlet Springs for an interagency training exercise when they see a single wisp of smoke to the west. What begins as a fun day of playing cops and bad guys soon becomes a battle against time, as they join forces with Hawke and members of the Rocky Mountain Search & Rescue Team to save friends trapped by the fire.
Together, they pit their strength and courage against a terrifying and unforgiving force of nature. Will it be enough? Or will the ravenous flames claim lives—and leave the people of Scarlet Springs forever scarred?

A hero barely holding on…
Harrison Conrad returned to Scarlet Springs from Nepal, the sole survivor of a freak accident on Mt. Everest. Shattered and grieving for his friends, he vows never to climb again and retreats into a bottle of whiskey—until Kenzie Morgan shows up at his door with a tiny puppy asking for his help. He’s the last person in the world she should ask to foster this little furball. He’s barely capable of managing his own life right now, let alone caring for a helpless, adorable, fluffy puppy. But Conrad has always had a thing for Kenzie with her bright smile and sweet curves.One look into her pleading blue eyes, and he can’t say no.
The woman who won’t let him fall…
Kenzie Morgan’s life went to the dogs years ago. A successful search dog trainer and kennel owner, she gets her fill of adventure volunteering for the Rocky Mountain Search & Rescue Team. The only thing missing from her busy life is love. It’s not easy finding Mr. Right in a small mountain town, especially when she’s unwilling to date climbers. She long ago swore never again to fall for a guy who might one day leave her for a rock. When Conrad returns from a climbing trip haunted by the catastrophe that killed his best friend, Kenzie can see he’s hurting and wants to help. She just might have the perfect way to bring him back to the world of the living. But friendship quickly turns into something more—and now she’s risking her heart to heal his.

The I-Team is back! Catch up with your favorite I-Team characters in Deadly Intent (I-Team #8). This is photojournalist Joaquin Ramirez’s story. Forever changed by events in Breaking Point and Dead By Midnight, Joaquin had a harder edge now. He’s going to need it, as former US Army Captain Mia Starr has trouble on her heels.
Here’s the blurb:
Secrets buried in the sand…
Former US Army Captain Mia Starr has built a new life for herself in Denver, far away from camel spiders and sand—and the terrible secrets of her first deployment to Iraq. She isn’t looking for a relationship, especially not with an intrusive photojournalist. Joaquin Ramirez might be sexy, but in her experience, photojournalists only want to make a buck off other people’s suffering. Still, the universe must have a sick sense of humor because it keeps throwing her together with Joaquin, making the desire she feels for him harder and harder to resist.
An undeniable attraction…
As a Pulitzer Prize-winning news photographer, Joaquin has everything a single straight guy could want—except the right woman. When he meets Mia while shooting a crime scene, he immediately sees beyond her cold exterior to the vulnerable woman beneath. Though the police consider her a suspect, he’s sure she’s innocent. Someone is killing soldiers—and trying to pin the blame on her. Unable to resist the pull between them, Joaquin stands by her only to find himself snared in the killer’s net as well.
A twisted soul hungry for revenge…
Mia can’t help it when the heat between her and Joaquin melts away her preconceptions. As their passion explodes, danger draws ever closer. When it becomes clear that Mia is the killer’s true target, she must trust Joaquin with a secret that could ruin her … or risk losing the love of a lifetime.

Visit the I-Team Shop at Café Press
The I-Team series might be over-for now-but that doesn't mean you can't carry it with you. The Pamela Clare I-Team Shop is now open on Café Press, selling a range of T-shirts, hoodies, tank tops, mugs, water bottles, bags, and other items with the official I-Team logos.
The logos were designed for me as a gift by Lynsey Marion Bryan, a dear friend of mine from my newspaper days, who died suddenly and unexpectedly in March 2015. Using her logos is a way of keeping her with me.
I plan to expand the shop's variety by adding "Team" art with your favorite hero's name on it-"Team Marc," "Team Julian," "Team Zach," "Marcangelo Lives," and etc.
Café Press does ship overseas, so the items are available internationally.
Thanks for 10 years of love for the I-Team series!
Perfume designed exclusively for Unlawful Contact!
I am so excited to announce that internationally known perfumer Dawn Spencer Hurwitz has created two new scents in honor of Unlawful Contact. Dawn designs scents for Hollywood stars, New York jet-setters and Parisian socialites. Using natural oils and essences, not chemicals, she makes her perfumes by hand, one drop at a time, just as perfumers did three hundred years ago.
I met Dawn this past summer and was so impressed by her work that I asked if she'd be interested in turning the characters in Unlawful Contact into scents. She read the manuscript, took lots of notes about Marc's and Sophie's personalities, and then began to turn those into scents.
I went in to sniff the final results last week, and I love them! I've been wearing "Sophie" ever since and dabbing "Marc" on all the men in my life."Marc" captures the scents of Colorado's mountains together with Marc Hunter's deep masculine sexuality, while "Sophie" captures Sophie's sexy, sleek sophistication with a touch of innocent "fairy sprite" sensuality. The two work well together, both featuring certain musk notes that make them a "couple."
Working with an artist like Dawn was so much fun. She and I are talking about doing it again, perhaps going backward with the I-Team series. "Julian" anyone?
The scents are now done and can be ordered from her Web site at www.dshperfumes.com. The perfumes are part of the Essence Studio collection. She has a variety of sizes available, including samples for under $4.
