Product Description

His desire for her placed them in jeopardy.

This is the H.I.S. series relabeled HIS series

“This book is filled with plenty of twists, off the charts chemistry and will leave you on the edge of your seat while reading it.” Escape Reality with Books

Meet the hot-bodied men of Hamilton Investigation & Security as they do whatever it takes to protect the women who have stolen their hearts.

When FBI Special Agent Kate Ross is injured in a drive-by shooting, Hamilton Investigation & Security (HIS) leader Jesse Hamilton, believing she is the target of a killer seeking revenge against him, pulls the full force of HIS into action to protect her.

Kate doesn’t believe Jesse, the only man to make her seethe one minute and lust after him the next, when he approaches her with a note from the Facilitator stating someone he loves would die shortly, and he knows in his gut it’s Kate. After a second attempt on her life, she can no longer fight his protection or her attraction to him.

After making a mistake that cost his wife her life, Jesse vowed never to love again, but Kate stirs something in him that puts his protective instincts into overdrive. Keeping her alive and out of his heart is more difficult than he expected. Then he makes a decision that could cost Kate her life. Is history due to repeat itself?

**HIS DESIRE is the first book in the HIS series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

This was a fun read with plenty of realistic romantic development. The intrigue of the investigation was a good hook too, and the outcome of the book unexpected!
The editing process could have been a lot tighter with a further proof read.

FBI Special Agent Kate Ross is thrown together with ex-FBI agent Jesse Hamilton, now working for a private security firm called H.I.S. They are tracking down a hitman known as The Facilitator. The Facilitator has a personal vendetta against Jesse, but, for some unknown reason, is targeting Kate. Who has hired the notorious hitman, and who is the actual target?

There's a lot of conflict and action in this fast-paced, romantic, mystery thriller. I loved Kate and Jesse's characters and the steamy dynamics between the two. They each have suffered past tragedies, which has caused hem to close off their hearts to love and the consequences of giving your soul to another person. There were plenty of secondary characters, and my favorites were Reagan, Jesse's daughter, and A.J., Jesse's brother and Kate's partner. It appears the next book in the series will be dealing with A.J. Hamilton.

And talk about a bunch of hunky men carrying firearms. I love them. As plot twists go, about one third of the way into the book, I had a niggling idea of who the ultimate villain was, so there were no surprises on that front.

What I didn't like were all the redundancies as Kate and Jesse sorted out their feelings. A good copy editor would have helped eliminate these issues, along with the lack of commas.

I really enjoyed this book and recommend it for people who like mystery thrillers. I give it 4 feathers.

★✩★✩★ 5- Edge of your seat, Lust filled, Emotional -Stars ★✩★✩★
~this review may contain minor spoilers~

She'd never been more confounded about a man than she was about Jesse. One minute she's going to go for it, the next she was holding back because she didn't want to get hurt. And hurt she'd get. She could find herself making the mistake of getting close to Jesse and having her heart broken.

When FBI Agent Kate Ross gets injured in what she believes to be a random drive-by, she becomes the focus of former Agent Jesse Hamilton. The leader of H.I.S. believes she was targeted in an attempt at revenge on him but Kate isn't buying it. But when Jesse receives a note threatening the life of someone close to him after a second attempt on Kate's life, he is convinced she is the target. Try as Kate may to argue, Jessie puts the full force of H.I.S. on her protection detail and sticks to her like glue. Forced into tight quarters under extreme circumstances sends Kate's hormones into overdrive-how much longer can she handle being around the man who pisses her off one second and turns her on the next? He doesn't even try to hide the fact that he wants her in bed, but that's all he can offer and Kate just isn't wired that way.

Jesse Hamilton closed his heart off years ago, after he failed to save his wife from an armed robbery gone tragically wrong. He has carried the guilt of her death around with him refusing to open himself up again, there is no way he could ever survive the pain of losing someone like that again. But the more time he spend around Kate, the more the ice around his heart starts to melt, the more desperate he becomes to protect her. But on mistake, one lapse in judgment, may just cost Kate her life.

“Why her?

Wow! What a book! This story is fast paced and will keep you enthralled to the very last page.
Jessie is the head honcho at Hamilton Investigation Security inc and when he meets up with Kate his passion ignites.

Kate doesn't want a one night stand she wants something that will last forever. Thrown together when Kate's life is put at risk these two must work through their emotions and catch the killer before their time runs out!

I love this story by Sheila Kell and look forward to reading the next in the H.I.S Series

5.0 out of 5 stars One hot wonderful read 5 November 2014
By Cyn - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This book has it all passion, hate, hot alpha male, head strong women, love, mystery and so much more. The who done it will have you guessing until the end unless you pay close attention. I almost missed that one little clue and I thought that is weird. Then I started paying closer attention and things started falling together but I still wasn't 100 percent sure until the end. This author has a way of drawing you in and keeping you right where she wants you on the edge with you holding your breath waiting for the other shoe to drop why she weaves a story of mystery, thrills and suspense.

Jesse head and founder of H.I.S he serves and protects, the only thing is Katie who is FBI doesn't want to be protected she wants to be right in the middle of the action. When someone is out to kill her which she doesn't believe, Jesse sets up plans to keep her save. Only Katie is very stubborn and doesn't want his help. They both dislike each other and fight every time they see each other. Could it be hate or is there something more that neither is telling the other?

You are going to find a lot of hot passionate men in this story with some very hot passionate scenes. The author sure knows how to heat it up slow and steady. It might take them awhile to hook up but once they do they can't keep their hands off each other as they do their dance of love working their way through danger trying to beat the clock to get to the killer before someone ends up dead. This book starts off fast and keeps going at a fast pace. You will be drawn in from the first few pages and won't put it down.

There wasn't one thing about this book I did not find interesting or did not like. Each character seems to be hiding something they do not want the other to know. If the other knows they are afraid they will lose him/her. As we know things come out and the chips will fall, will it be enough to make them turn away from each other or will they build a life together?

This is the first book I have read from this author but it sure will not be the last. I can't wait to read HIS 2 I am sure little brothers story will be just as interesting and full of thrills and suspense as this one was. If you are looking for a new favorite author who knows how to tell a story why keeping you on the edge guessing look no further.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheila will not disappoint you! 4 November 2014
By christine - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Sheila Kell's first novel, HIS Desire, has me hooked on Romantic Suspense novels now! The book had me guessing until the very end, and then still surprised me. She also managed to keep the suspense high, and the romantic tension between Kate and Jesse even higher. I fell in love with Jesse and his tough, yet sweet charm. I loved reading about a tough female character, too.
Sheila also managed to draw you in to both their lives and by then end you felt as if you knew the two of them for years. The way she melted her scenes into one another, you learned about Kate's friends, her job, and her family so well, and Jesse's wonderful family too. There were many lines that had me laughing out loud. I loved how she weaved details together so quietly, then sprang them back at you when needed.
I did not want the book to end, but I am glad there will be a lot more HIS novels to feed my hunger! I look forward to reading about all the HIS men, and know Sheila will not disappoint!
Excellent read.

5.0 out of 5 stars FABTASTIC 4 November 2014
By Lucii book-lover Grubb - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
What more could you ask for in a book? Hot alpha(s), strong, stubborn woman, love, passiong, Steamy scenes? I tell you what...H.I.S has ALL of this and MORE! This book keeps you guessing til the very end. The suspense was killing me half the time, my heart pounded...I swear I almost cried at a few places as well. I found it super hard to put it down and return to normal every day life.

The Hamilton brothers are all super sexy, but Jesse, head and founder of H.I.S, is the hottest of them all. Who doesn't want a man to protect them? Kate. That's who. Little miss stubborn FBI Agent. But as the case gets more urgent and dangerous she really has no choice but to accept the help of Jesse and his H.I.S team.

Though it was a bumpy road for the pair from the beginning, being they didn't particularly get along, they made it through the book without killing each other :)

4.0 out of 5 stars thoughts on his desire 18 November 2014
By hello-booklover - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Interesting very interesting. Have some lingering questions I hope later books in the series can answer such as what is the underlying tension with AJ and Jesse about? Why doesn’t Devon go in the field? What happened to Devon to have him make the quiet comment or I Dont remember?

The biggest thing you will see besides the two main characters moving on from their guilt by finding love with another is the lengths people go for money and greed. Here it isn’t a power thing about money and greed. Greed for one but the greed isn’t about money it’s about life and getting back the life you want that you think you deserve.

Jesse is a tough guy but a softie on the inside. He has guilt about his wife’s death. Such that he closed off a piece of himself. A piece that Kate is getting to. He is protecting kate from a killer a hired assassin named the facilitator. Using all resources he has within his company and his brother at the FBI where Kate works they are with her 24/7. As him and Kate are together they grow close and the attraction does as well. Both hesitant to do anything. One because of guilt of a wife’s death and the other self doubt. As the danger forces them to get closer they begin to relent to their feelings only each is afraid. Afraid the other doesn’t feel the same. So it stays hidden until a near death proves too much and they both submit.

Each character in this story is multitwo-dimensional and has some background that motivates them. It helps to make them more captivating. Jesse has his wife’s death. Devon whatever happened when a CIA agent, Kate her biological parents death, AJ not sure but there is something, Kate’s sister money, the facilitator Jesse’s ruin of his life or what he perceives as him ruining his life, Mary the abuse from her ex and even Josh is motivated his is love. Each character is shown as passionate, smart and independent but they work together when needed.

The story is multi-faceted. Sheila Kell layers those facets so that you send them but not so that they glare out at you. There are nuances to the facets. All the layers intertwine. Jesse’s guilt keeps him from getting close to people but the shooting has him feel guilt because it’s to exact revenge or so he thinks, this gets him protecting kate while they catch the bad guys. This leads to their closeness and also seeing the dynamics of the other characters.

A interesting story in which the romance is there but not hit you on the head there, the intensity is addictive, the mystery of who it is becomes a must know and not one you can figure out right away leaving you devouring the pages to find out who and why. A great suspense story with a romantic aspect that leaves a smile soon the face.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Debut Novel.... 4 November 2014
By Judy - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Sheila Kell’s debut novel, HIS Desire, starts off her writing career with a bang! HIS Desire is a romantic suspense novel that keeps you guessing from page one. Jesse Hamilton, a former FBI agent, is head of Hamilton Investigation Security, Inc. (H.I.S.). Kate Ross is a FBI Special Agent who is partnered with Jesse’s brother, A.J. Hamilton. She is injured in a drive-by shooting. Jesse becomes her bodyguard when he fears her life is being targeted by a ‘hit man’ known as the Facilitator.

Kate fights Jesse’s desire to be her bodyguard but eventually gives in. He truly believes she is the intended target because the Facilitator believes she is an important part of Jesse’s life. Quite a bit of bantering back and forth occurs as Kate finally succumbs to Jesse becoming her bodyguard.

Jesse moves into Kate’s home. We see the tension between the two characters build as they begin to get to know one another better. We learn about their families and the losses both of them have incurred. Kate shares her past with Jesse but he refuses to share his secret with her.

As they begin to develop deep feelings for one another, the Facilitator continues to deliver notes and packages that produce deadly results. Ms. Kell has you on the edge of your seat as she takes you down the road with twists and turns until we discover who is behind the Facilitator and what Jesse truly fears.

HIS Desire is an action filled page turner. I was invested in the story from the get-go. The characters were well developed and the plot unfolded at a steady pace. I highly recommend HIS Desire and look forward to the next installment of H.I.S novels. I would like to disclose that I received an advanced copy of HIS Desire in exchange for a fair and honest review.
