Melanie Parker's life takes a gut-wrenching turn when she wakes up in a crumbling, unfamiliar environment. Even worse, her small child is in the arms of a certifiable killer, but Rena Hellberg isn't the only immediate threat. Melanie's abductor lurks in the shadows, a quiet, hooded stranger who's calling the shots. When she refuses to play the meek hostage, he reveals his darkest secrets in order to gain her cooperation.
Though he can barely trust himself, he can't deny his feelings for a woman he should have left alone. It wasn't his intention to bring her into a world he's trying to break free of, but he refuses to let it destroy her. The formidable group of enforcers who took him and made him one of their own won't tolerate rebellion of any kind. But they've never dealt with such a stubborn recruit...or one with so much to live for.

About the Author
Storytelling has been a part of her life since childhood, when insomnia forced a young girl of six into counting popcorn on the ceiling in the dead of night. Confessing her problem to her older sister, they decided to tell each other stories to entice sleep; however, the inevitable snore always tore through her sister's nose before she could utter the words Once Upon A Time. So, the stories began to flow in silence, her imagination taking her to quiet, private places so enthralling, the trick was suddenly to stay awake. Each night, she went to bed anticipating the continuation of the adventure that had been interrupted by sleep the previous night. Soon, insomnia was no longer a problem and the stories would sometimes take months to complete.
Those habits carried on to adulthood until the need to purge her stories demanded she put them in print. Her fascination with romance, fast cars and adventure films is what structures her stories today, making Romantic Suspense the genre she was simply born to write.

I would suggest reading TRUTH AND HUMILITY - before you read BETWEEN FAITH AND FEAR, only because it will help understand the group dynamic better (And it's a really good book). However, BETWEEN FAITH AND FEAR is a stand alone book too, so you wouldn't have to. While it is a bit darker than the first in the series, it too is a refreshing, unique read. What I really like about J.A. Dennam's books is that the characters are not the "typical" this or that - they are unique and witty - and even the GOOD guys are a little bad sometimes. BETWEEN FAITH AND FEAR is suspenseful and fun - it will keep you wondering what will happen next!
When Melanie Parker wakes up in an unfamiliar room with a killer holding her little boy she knows something is wrong, very wrong. A hooded stranger is standing in the shadows calling the shots. When she refuses to just give up, she learns more than she ever dreamed. That hooded stranger cannot hide his feelings for Melanie. He brings her into a scary and dangerous world that could end up killing them all. Between Faith and Fear is a fast paced, page turner that I could not put down. I loved that the characters from Truth and Humility were also in this novel, but the story was new, not a carryover of book #1. I feel that this could be a standalone story, but it is also part of a series. The action and the romance kept me up late reading and then getting up early to be able to finish it. J.A. Dennam wrote another amazing book. This is a hard review for me to write, as I do not want to give away the surprise that happens in this story. Yet the surprise is the main part of this book. I can tell you that you have to read this book. Whether you read the first on, Truth and Humility, or not. You will miss out on an amazing story if you pass by this one. Danny was still my favorite character. She stood besides Melanie through thick and thin. D.J., Melanie’s son, was taught through Danny’s family who his dada was, even when he wasn’t around. When Melanie was dealing with her kidnapping and who the kidnappers were Danny managed to help her keep her cool and also save the ones that mean the most to her. When the surprise was revealed she fainted, but then jumped right back into it and moved to action. I felt that Danny was true. True to her friends, family, and the mission that was at hand for all those involved in keeping Melanie, D.J. and their family safe. As you can tell I LOVE novel and the author. I am anxiously awaiting more about the Cahill’s and Bennett Families. I definitely recommend Between Faith and Fear by J.A. Dennam
By: J.A. Dennam Published By: J.A.D. Age Recommended: Adult Reviewed By: Arlena Dean Rating: 5 Series: Captive Series #2 Review: "Between Faith and Fear" by J.A. Dennam was some good read. I would suggest you read this authors' first novel 'Truth and Humility' first before reading this one...it will make it somewhat clearer for you to understand just what has gone on earlier in the series leading into this one: "Between Faith and Fear." All I can say is what a thrill of a ride this novel lead me on. I thought it was a awesome read. This author really knows how to connect all of the dots so you will just have to read it finding it such a smooth ride. There was so much going on in this read...be ready for so many twist and turns that will have you saying I didn't see that coming! The first series was of Austin and Danny and for this series was of Mel and Derek. Yes, Derek! Be ready for 'secrets, plots and a lots of danger in every turn up to very end. As the secrets are revealed there will be even more danger added to the characters. Will they be able to live or will their be lives loss? One great thing I did like was the way the families came together 'working side by side to save the lives of those they loved.' "Between Faith and Fear" their will be parts of the novel will jump back and forth but it will be easy to keep up with. At times you will not know who the enemy is but by continuing your read you will find out in the end and oh what a ending! Be prepared for a long read but it will be worth it in the end because this author really give its to her readers a awesome read that will only have you looking for this author's the next series.
