ECSTASY BY THE SEA (Book 2)

The second story in the steamy spinoff to the COUNTERMEASURE series sees Trevor Bauer and Cassandra James having just tied the knot and moving across the pond to their new digs in Ireland to begin their life as a married couple.
Unbeknownst to Cassandra, Trevor plans the perfect honeymoon getaway down to the daintiest swatch of lace. His detail-obsessed wife won't know what hit her when he sweeps her away for what will result in nothing less than a weekend filled with pure ecstasy by the sea....

CUFFED AT MIDNIGHT (Book 3)

In the third short story in the COUNTERMEASURE: Bytes of Life series, Trevor and Cassandra Bauer's romance continues to burn even after a near death, their wedding, working cases for the NSA, and their own personal investigation into the disappearance of Trevor's parents.
Trevor's birthday is on the horizon and Cassandra is beating her head against the keyboard trying to find the right gift. Inspiration finally hits in the form of a house-warming gift from a friend. Little does Trevor know what surprise awaits him at the stroke of midnight....

PASSION AT DAWN (Book 4)
In the fourth Countermeasure: Byte of Life, Trevor and Cassandra Bauer have settled into married life after facing the bumpy road to the altar. While Cassandra looks for ways to spice up their love life, Trevor questions his efficacy as a husband. His insecurities are compounded by the constant threat of Nathan Nelson, her old friend and past lover, who can't accept their marriage as final.
A brand new marriage, personal uncertainties, and a good dose of alpha geek jealousy make for a volatile mix. When a phone call spurs him to lay claim to what is his and give Cassandra the fantasies she craves, Trevor reacts like any hot blooded man would. The result is a steamy room, slippery bodies, and Passion at Dawn.

Meet the Author

CHRIS ALMEIDA & CECILIA AUBREY
Writing had touched Chris Almeida's and Cecilia Aubrey's lives in different ways through the years but had never taken flight until 2010, when
Chris and Cecilia met and began role-playing online as a hobby. It was through playing fictional characters in a sort of improv written theater,
that writing took a central position in their lives. The transition from role playing to novel writing was smooth and they attribute the ease of writing realistic characters to their ability to live the scenes 'through role play.
Chris and Cecilia have since chosen to release all their titles independently.
They have several short stories and two novels published under their own label, √Čire Publishing, and are vocal supporters of independent publishing done right. They are currently working on the next novel in their series. Through all the chaos and laughter, they still hold true to their roots, bringing their favorite role-play characters and stories to life.

    Holy cow, these are three hot books. Countermeasure: Bytes of Li

    Holy cow, these are three hot books. Countermeasure: Bytes of Life Volume I holds the stories Ecstasy by the Sea, Cuffed at Midnight and Passion at Dawn, all by Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey. These hot, passionate,steamy and wonderful books are short stories about the main characters Trevor and Cassandra from the first book in the Countermeasure series titled Countermeasure. We get a glimpse into life with Trevor and Cassandra and how marriage is treating them. While the full length novels are categorized as romantic suspense in this series, the Bytes of Life are more contemporary / erotic romance (so far at least). I think you need to read Countermeasure before these three shorts because they won’t mean a lot to you without that background and history.

    The thing I love most about all three of these stories is that we get to follow characters I wasn’t ready to let go of from Countermeasure. We experience Trevor and Cassie’s ups and downs as newlyweds as well as how the passion between the two of them continues to grow. When they are not out hunting down hired assassins, they are spending time at home figuring out what to do with their new life in Ireland and what drives each other wild. We also get to witness common insecurities from newlyweds and how they conquer them.

    Chris and Cecilia know how to write hot and sexy stories. The cover of this volume fits each story exactly. The intimate scenes are very well written. The scenes and interactions between Trevor and Cassie are very respectful and sweet yet so steamy and passionate. There is no crude language (except Cassie has a way of making Trevor say the f-word when she has pushed him to his limits in a good way) or anything that makes you feel awkward. It is all very romantic and typical in that can’t-keep-your-hands-off-one-another stage of marriage. I think the stories also remind those that have been together for a long time that intimacy is a big part of a marriage and it is never to late to try new things.

    There are other bits and pieces of Trevor and Cassie’s life we experience in these stories that I am curious about and wondering how it will turn out in the next full length novel. Some of those things revolve around Trevor and Cassie’s relationship with her father Robert and former colleague Nathan. They definitely leave you wanting more of the series. I highly recommend these short stories to anyone that has read the Countermeasure series and would like to see what Trevor and Cassandra are up to when they are not running for their lives or fighting the bad guys.
