Meet the Author

Chris Almeida (C. Almeida) began writing children’s stories at a very young age. Chris’ life took a totally different course when technology came into play, and the next 17years were spent delving deep into the world of programming and web design.
It was in 2010, when Chris began role playing online, as a hobby, that writing wormed its way back into the picture. This time, writing storylines for the role playing group. The ideas and plots created for the game awoke the inner writer and a few months later, together with, partner in crime, Cecilia Aubrey, began writing romantic erotica.
Now, together, they have created a number of short stories, are currently working on a book series and have several projects on the side lines. Through it all they have continued to enjoy role playing through their favorite characters.
Cecilia Aubrey’s (C. Aubrey) writing has been included in business publications and communications for several years. A year ago, Cecilia took on the role of a character in an online role playing group, and met partner, C. Almeida. The development of story ideas, research, writing and participation in bringing those stories to life spurred a desire to take writing to a higher level. A few months later, a new passion was formed and together with Chris Almeida, they began writing romantic erotica. Inspired by the works of many Romance, Paranormal and Erotica authors, the majority of Cecilia’s free time is spent in collaboration with Chris on a number of short stories and several writing projects including an Erotic, Romance Suspense book series. For fun and inspiration, they have continued to bring their favorite role play characters and stories to life.

    The books in the Countermeasure series keep getting better and b

    The books in the Countermeasure series keep getting better and better. We are really getting to know the characters on a deeper level which is so incredibly awesome. Lost to Rapture by Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey is the 6th Countermeasure: Bytes of Life short story. It centers around the one year anniversary of Trevor and Cassandra and oh boy is it lovely. And so sweet, sensual and emotional. Trevor and Cassie are such a phenomenal love story.

    In Lost to Rapture, Trevor is trying to figure out the best place to take Cassie for their one year anniversary. It quickly dawns on him that taking her back to his hometown of Sligo is the perfect place. As you can imagine, emotions are high since it is the first time Trevor has been back since his parents have disappeared. How will he handle it? Well, with Cassie by his side, you know he will have a great support.

    The true love that Trevor and Cassandra share is really demonstrated in Lost to Rapture. The patience and understanding they have for one another, their playfulness as well as their continual passion for each other are all evident in this story. I love watching Cassie give up more control the longer she is with Trevor. She trusts him with her heart and therefore the decisions he makes. I am not sure two people can love each other more. It really is lovely to witness.

    While Ecstasy by the Sea, Cuffed at Midnight and Passion at Dawn, three other shorts in the Bytes of Life series show the hot and wild side of Trevor and Cassie as the newlywed couple who can’t seem to keep their hands off one another, Lost to Rapture shows more of a deeper emotional connection between the two. Their intimacy is just as exciting and sensual but at a different level in my opinion. Bottom line, if you have read the other books in the Countermeasure series and adore watching Trevor and Cassandra, you really need to read the heartwarming story that is Lost to Rapture.

    Trevor and Cassandra have been married for one year and Trevor has decided to take them to his hometown of Sligo, to celebrate. Haunted by the memories of his parents, he hopes to make new memories with Cassie that will over-power the questions racing in his mind.

    Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey have written a majestic short story in their Bytes of Life series. The rich details will overwhelm readers’ sense and make the feel as though they are in the depths of Ireland’s splendid scenery. Fans of this series will rejoice as they are reunited with the overpowering chemistry between Trevor and Cassandra. Trevor’s inner turmoil over the mystery of his parents will wreck havoc on readers’ emotions. Another must read from this fantastic writing duo.

    The Countermeasure series is like the proverbial buried treasure hidden in the world of literature. This series spans multiple genres with exquisite details, sweltering romance and riveting suspense. I have loved each new adventure and highly recommend this series to those looking to lose themselves in an excellent series.

    In another installment to the Bytes of Life addendum to their Co

    In another installment to the Bytes of Life addendum to their Countermmeasure Series, Almeida and Aubrey have provided fans of the series with more insight, a few clues, and reinforced the love for the series and the characters of Cass and Trev.  For new readers to the series and the shorts, this one will provide all the highlights of the full series, while introducing a love story that is as palpable as it is romantic. 




    Starting with a quotation from Yeats, “It is love that I am seeking for, But of a beautiful, unheard-of kind  that is not in this world”. The entirety of the depth of love between Cassie and Trevor is wrapped up in those simple lines, and while Trevor is making little strides to share more of his now painful memories of his past, we see that Trevor could settle for nothing less than the unheard of love, for that was the sort of love he experienced growing up. 




    If you are contemplating a series that has it all: romance, action, mystery and above all characters that will come to life and poke at you as you read – Countermeasure and it’s Bytes of Life are certainly it.   Try this byte out, and see if the characters don’t move or excite you. You will be glad you did.




    I received an eBook copy from the authors for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
