ARC Review: FIRST A LADY by JADE CARY is Available Now!@authorjadecary

First A Lady by Jade Cary is AVAILABLE NOW!



The President of the United States has been assassinated.
Grace Coolidge is now a widow.

She will never forget the horror of that day.
Or the betrayal of those who were sworn to protect the president.

But she’ll also never forget John Marin, the Secret Service agent who carried her to safety and saved her sanity.
Now she is forced to accept protection in order to fulfill her public duties, and he is the only man she can trust to protect her.

After the President was assassinated on his watch, John sold everything he owned and left town. He wants no part of that life, and is perfectly content with good rum and willing women.

But when Grace tracks him down and begs him to protect her, he finds it hard to resist the beautiful, haunted woman. He knows there is more to this than leading her through crowds with his hand on her back. She is hiding something, and he will stop at nothing to get to the truth.

Whatever her past, she is a lady first, and he will protect her with his life, no matter the cost.

It was only two weeks, she said. But he knows better.
A lifetime wouldn’t be enough with this woman.


What a great idea for a romance, the widowed first lady and the Secret Service agent who looked after you when your husband is assassinated in front of her.
When Grace the former first lady needs protection she doesn’t feel like she can trust the secret Service agents, and begs John to come out of retirement to protect her.
Wow what chemistry between Grace and John, what can I say I love big men I think we all loved to think we want to be the center of a hunky hot alpha’s attention.
I felt like a fly on the wall watching everything, the politics, gossip, and the alpha male teaching Grace who is in charge. If you want to read a romance with a difference then this is for you.
Intrigue, hot sex and an did I say a protective alpha male. All with dirty politics as a background what more do you want.





About the Author:

Jade Cary wrote elaborate fantasies in her head from the time she was a small child. The fantasies included strong men and strong, loving relationships. She discovered romance novels quite by accident, once she’d devoured everything by Stephen King and Joseph Wambaugh. Desperate for something new to read, she picked up The Other Side of Midnight by Sidney Sheldon. After that, she found Scruples, by Judith Krantz. A whole new world opened up, and she buried herself in everything these authors wrote. She was fascinated with how the stories were able to capture her and take her to another place. But, more than that, she paid attention to how the words, the writing, made her feel.

She discovered a talent for writing later in life, after careers were had and kids were moving about on their own. She falls in love on a daily basis with her characters, and hopes readers will do the same.

Her first novel, The Point of it All, is the story of two people brought together under extraordinary circumstances. An unapologetic alpha hero who will stop at nothing to keep the woman he loves safe, and a strong, intelligent heroine who finds his supercilious, high-handed ways trying at best, find each other as both fight for freedom, independence, and ultimately love.

A Southern California girl born and bred, her travels to exotic locales inspire rich storytelling, her husband inspires the romance, and her kids inspire the laughs. Jade lives in SoCal with her family.

Length: 10 hours 17 minutes

Release date: May 30, 2018

Who killed 1940s screen goddess Gloria Reardon? Her unsolved murder hypnotized the public with its scandalous details and shocked two generations.

Avid feminist and aspiring filmmaker Kate Bloom discovers long-lost footage that holds the key to who murdered her grandmother. Legendary movie star Gloria Reardon may be dead, but friends and lovers from the Golden Age of Hollywood’s heyday are still very much on the scene, and it seems everyone has something to gain or lose from Kate’s discovery.

Enlisting the youthful and brash film restorer Dylan Nichols as her closest ally, Kate becomes haunted by Gloria’s glittering past. Caught between glamorous Old Hollywood and the gritty, exciting New Hollywood of the 1970s, Kate is determined to find out what really happened to her grandmother and in the process becomes the killer’s new target.

Allison Morse is the author of two novels: The Sweetheart Deal and Fallen Star. Both published by The Wild Rose Press. She lives with her wonderful husband in a house in the hills that’s filled with books.

My god what a great story, I loved every minute of this 10 hours story.
This is really the story of Gloria a forties screen goddess who was brutally murdered many years before Kate was born. Kate is determined to find her grandmother’s murderer.
This is set in the late sixties, early seventies when Kate is a Film student and a fierce feminist. While going through her dead mother’s garage, Kate finds some missing footage from the last film Gloria made. This is the start of a wonderful crime adventure, as we watch Kate blossom from a tortured fearful young woman into a confident well balanced human being. This was one of the best crime thrillers I’ve listened to this year.
I have to say this is a mesmerising and addictive listen. Christa is amazing with all the different voices. Keeping me glued to this amazing adventure.
