Jacobs' two stories feature a sexy and dynamic leading couple who propel
the mystery in different and intriguing directions. BDSM features heavily in the sexual lives of these characters, but it provides an interesting contrast between the out-of-control situations life throws
at them, and their bedroom, one of
the few places where they can take
back control and emotion. Jacobs
writes rewarding, sometimes graphic,
but endlessly magnetic stories.

After the death of his beloved wife, Casey Weldon packs up his life and his two young children and takes a job as athletic director at the state university. It's a big undertaking, since the department is brimming with corruption, greed and, before he has a handle on the situation, murder. Help comes in the form of assistant security chief TJ Thomas. Instant attraction sparks between them, but with scandal brewing, TJ and Casey discover their new love is only the "Tip of the Iceberg" of their problems.

After burying her cheating husband Travis, Darlene Jackson is determined to discover who murdered him. She gets help from Vlad Ivanov, the new placekicker for her husband's football team. Darlene is sure there's more to him than meets the eye -- and she's correct. Vlad is an undercover FBI agent investigating Travis' murder. The danger is high as Darlene becomes the unwitting target of the killer, and Vlad will do anything to protect her in "Wrong Place, Wrong Time?" (Ellora's Cave, Nov. '06, 214 pp., $11.49)
